your time now

As we set sail into a new year, and a new decade, I can't help but feel a sense of excitement about what lies ahead. There's never been a better time for women to realise their full potential, so if you're keen to reboot any part of your life, make this your year!

Your favourite holiday spot? I love Tasmania. I urge people to visit it because it’s so beautiful, and they have a great art gallery, and great food, and delicious cheese. So go! What are your top wardrobe staples? It depends on the season, really. In summer, I love wearing long, loose skirts and T-shirts. And a hat. Always wear a hat! Your comfort-food treat?
