A road trip through Big Sur with my partner, Campbell, last year, I would do that drive over and over, it was magic.
What do you do each day that's just for you?
I would love to say meditate but it doesn’t happen very often these days… my pilates classes are sacred, I go to Fluid Form Pilates Studio in Sydney it's the best there is.
Who or what makes you glow with inspiration?
Spending time with Campbell, especially at our country property - he has an endless amount of ideas and being in nature so often has had the greatest effect on our lives.

The only rule, The Golden Rule - Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
What work are you most proud of?
Raising my son and building a business with creative integrity.
What is your favourite city for beauty treatments?
I love a spa but I’ll opt for massage over a facial every time, Hawaiian Ka Huna or MyoFascial massages with Maggie Hedman are my favourite in Sydney.
