November: Scotland as a travel destination; a dram of whisky (....for breakfast with creamy porridge. That's just how the Scots roll!), clay pigeon shooting, roaring fires and loch-side strolls at The Torridon, Scottish Highlands; Delicious smoked salmon from Inverawe Smokehouse (scrumptious on Cradoc's Pear & Earl Grey tea cocktail biscuits with a squeeze of lemon, and served with a glass of champagne); Jamie Oliver's fish pie (we made this with smoked fish from Inverawe Smokehouse. Wonderfully filling and comforting after a day spent in cold and rainy weather); Pact coffee (love the idea of freshly roasted beans, delivered weekly); Rag & Bone Roseburg velvet blazer (timeless, sumptuous velvet in a beautiful deep red colour. This reminds me of one Emily Weiss from Into the Gloss wore a couple of seasons ago); 3.1 Phillip Lim Quill cutout velvet booties(a hint of decadent velvet); Moschino Cheap and Chiclace-paneled tweed mini dress(gorgeous with a pair of t-bar pumps); Stella McCartney colour-block sweater (the colours remind me of an In-N-Out burger....and for that I love it!); Alice + Olivia Kailey leather midi dress (love a leather skirt and this midi is the perfect sexy/practical combination for winter); Topshop Ultimate Sheepskin coat (vintage-y goodness for winter); Rebecca Minkoff Cory Monogram pouch (a cute gift - excellent as a stocking filler - for a friend or sibling. Just sad they don't seem to stock a V....); Topshop short sleeve lace crop dress (a pretty look for the festive season); ASOS White sweater in dip dye (snuggly + beautiful colours. Team with jeans and boots); Coral & Tusk Artic Animals cocktail napkins (ridiculously sweet, and a perfect stocking filler for the holidays); Moby shower curtain (a fat whale in the bathroom?! Oh yes, please!); Aspen bunny (last year I got this little guy - in miniature - as a Christmas decoration. I hope the bigger version appears in my Christmas stocking!); Watching: Homeland (of course); Reading: Him & Me by Jack and Michael Whitehall (I have just ordered this book. Can't wait to dive into it); Munching on: Baked camembert in a box (stud with an unpeeled clove of garlic and sprigs of rosemary, bake until gooey and serve with vegetable crudites). An easy festive season treat to serve with pre-dinner drinks.
I am an Australian lawyer turned photographer living in London;
I take a thousand photographs every day - some in my head, some with my camera;
I can't imagine doing anything else with my life- I am totally and utterly in love with my camera and with the people and things I photograph
