Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Sorry I have dropped off the face of the earth!

I have been side-swiped by the Australian sun and sea and sketchy internet connections.

I haven’t forgotten about all my gorgeous cyber friends and I wish you all the most fabulous Christmas and holiday season. These  photos are of a house in Neutral Bay Sydney where a devoted Christmas lights lover has gone wild in true Australian style.

I can’t wait to catch up with you in 2013 for more fun and photography and thank-you for all your support this year.

May these days be laced with love, family and friendship and I hope all your 2013 dreams and plans come true.

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are”

Love and hugs

Portrait Inspiration – Hippy Chic

  All photos of Caroline Murphy by Regan Cameron

It’s summer in Sydney, the cicada’s are buzzing, the sun is shining and I am spending as much time as possible in the water.

I know in other parts of the world the temperatures are icy, the fires are roaring and jackets, hats and scarves are a must.

But since I am here kicking around in caftans I want to share a little summer hippy chic portrait inspiration by fabulous Australian photographer Regan Cameron!

Gorgeous Caroline Murphy makes you want to bring on the beach hair, get out he flowing dresses and floral pants and crank up the backlight.

Wishing you sunlight and happiness.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time”. John Lubbock

Private Portrait Shoot

Hey nothing like a little salt air and Sydney sun to get my creative forces flowing. This is a little preview of a colourful fun shoot I did this week in Sydney.

French chic flew out the window and Aussie madness stormed in.

I couldn’t resist a little craziness doing this portrait of a beautiful teenager in Sydney..She was so fab the Indian headress seemed like a brilliant idea.

More colour and fun to come..

24 hours on the French Riviera’s Golden Triangle with Millie Brown

I’d love to introduce a gorgeous photographer Millie Brown.. Millie takes stunning travel pics and I am handing over my post to her today to give you an insider’s view to the French Rivera.

Over to Millie…

Traveling and photography are two of my greatest passions; they motivate me to travel great distances each year (albeit with far too much luggage), to blog my discoveries on Travel Notecards, and to lead a somewhat vagabond lifestyle.

I happily spend much of my time in an exquisite area of France known as the Golden Triangle, running between the three stunning small towns that make up this prestigious triangle; Villefranche sur Mer, Beaulieu sur Mer and St Jean Cap Ferrat, all within a stones throw of each other.

While 24 hours would clearly never be long enough in this paradisiacal corner of the world, lets try and make the most of it!

Beat the heat, and wake at sunrise in the elegant town of Beaulieu. Savour the delicious aroma of freshly baked bread and croissants as you make your way down to the tranquil waters of the mediterranean.


As the beach starts to fill, head to Beaulieu’s daily and colorful fresh produce market in the town square.

Grab a pastry and the best café crème in town at Gran Caffé (yes, it’s real italian coffee in France), directly opposite the market.

Work off the pastry with a 20 minute walk to Villefranche. Stroll the shoreline and take a seat on the terrace at Le Cosmo for a rosé and some lunch.

Don’t rush away from Villefranche, the charm lies in strolling its tiny pedestrian streets.

As the light and heat of the midday sun fades, meander around one of the most magnificent Villas and gardens of France, Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in St Jean Cap Ferrat.

For dinner, grab a table by the lapping water at Anjuna Beach, Eze sur mer (2 minutes off the triangle)! however it’s magical!

 If you can stay longer, do, it truly is a slice of mediterranean heaven.
