    Matt Moran has opened his new restaurant, Bea, on the middle floor of the new Barangaroo House in Sydney and it’s all kinds of great. In a 180-seat strong offering to the newly developed and as-good-as-done billion dollar development that is Barangaroo, the House of Barangaroo is a three-tiered haven of gastronomic fancy that people […]

  • Pharrell Williams & Louis XIII are doing their bit to save the planet (sponsored)

    People are ruining the World. It’s a fact. Global warming, pestilence, the sex trade, pollution, lack of recycling… The list is endless. It’s a wonder the Earth hasn’t thrown in the towel and collapsed in on itself entirely. There was a quote in the 2008 film starring Keanu Reaves, The Day the Earth Stood Still that rings […]

    Top 5 places to spend holidays away in NSW this January

    With forced annual leave at plenty of work places, Christmas time off and more of a reason ever to get the hell outta town for a bit for that much-needed R&R, the time to escape is now. And with so many options out there of places to go and call ‘home’ for a few days […]

Yering Station’s design market

Yering Station is to many what represents the epitome of peace, tranquility, wine and the cosier more fine things in life. Combine that perception with a bit of art, a touch of fashion and a healthy drenching in champagne and you have what will this November be hitting the pristine wine region, the Australian Designer […]

Wrapp your gifts

If there’s one thing in life I’m generally bad at, it’s gift giving. I struggle with associating things I see in shop windows and displays with the people around me that I know and care for enough to buy a gift ether for an occasion or no apparent reason. That’s why at parties, you’ll usually […]

See Ireland, stay in Melbourne

The Spring Racing carnival is on its way! Winter cannot disappear quickly enough, which means for those of us sartorially obsessed: wardrobe change! The forthcoming season is disseminating a heavy neon, bright colour and ‘lots of pop’ vibe, which Melburnians should be thrilled to jump on the back of. It will be interesting to see […]

Better than mother’s Milk

It’s winter. The wind is cool, the sun – which we’ve surprisingly had a fair bit of – is strong and the dehydration factor is off the charts. Just because you’re a man doesn’t mean you need to neglect taking care of your skin. Short of – as much as so many of us would […]

The Eye öf Hörus

I don’t do drag. Never have and most likely never will. It’s not my thing. And as much as a stunningly beautiful woman I contend I’d make, I don’t think crossing that line in the sand between masculinity and transexuality is quite for me. However… I was recently made privy to a unique product in the […]

All about Anthony Capon

Going in with a predisposition; I came out with a revelation. Reputations of being set and confident in his ways, battling stereotypes and having a formidable character are all that swirled through my mind as I entered the glamorous warehouse that housed my source of conversation, Anthony Capon. After all, that was all I knew […]

Melbourne’s restaurant scene gets new Shus

There’s a new establishment in Collingwood. No, it’s not a public housing commission building, nor a new warehouse conversion that plays host to innumerable fashion, music and lifestyle events that take place in Melbourne. It is a restaurant and a fine culturally matrimonious one at that. Shu’s at 147 Johnston St, Collingwood is a modern […]

Geo. F. Trumper’s art of wet shaving

The remarkably old school practise of stropping is now a figment of the past reserved for those of the era or those who fancy the odd beating of a piece of leather. It sharpens the razor blade before a shave and keeps the blade clean. But who cares?! With a new product I’ve recently discovered […]

A world of pretty dresses: Cathleen Jia

Design, dresses, creativity and all things pretty are in her blood. As a young girl, obsession with Barbie dolls and creating uniquely ‘designed’ dresses and garments were her bread and butter. Nowadays, Melbourne cocktail and bridal dress and gown designer Cathleen Tan focuses her attention on more lucrative options, but hasn’t lost that childhood pizzazz […]

Such is the life of a photographer: Meagan Harding

There’s a certain something about Meagan Harding that makes her stand out from the rest. Is it her exquisite demeanour with a lick of real Australiana? Is it her easily noticeable sense of style? Her warm and hilarious personality that is only too happy to approach and be approached? Or her penchant for occasionally being […]
