Q: What do you love about Brisbane City?
I love that everything is in the one place and that you can shop, eat, drink and explore while being outdoors in the SUN!

Q: Where is your favourite place to shop and why?I am an absolute sucker for Mecca Maxima. I need to go there with a strict shopping list or else I’ll walk out with half the store… seriously.  Also, cannot go passed Zara, Sheike and Dissh! Perfect for everyday wear, event wear and fun accessories.

Q: What are the top five things in your handbag this summer?
Lip balm, a travel perfume, wallet, my phone, keys and a pen!

Q: What are your summer beauty tips?
SKIN SKIN SKIN! Mecca is my go-to (no surprise there). I keep my face out of the sun, do a weekly exfoliation and detoxification face mask followed by a really hydrating cream or overnight mask. My favourite products are the Mecca Cosmetica Daily Moisturiser with SPF and the Drunk Elephant Whipped Moisturiser. The Kate Sommerville ExfoliKate is also AMAZING, and is a must-try. I’m also a big fake tanner, and like to protect my skin in the sun, especially in our summer!

Q: Where is your favourite place to eat/drink in the City?
Donna Chang for dinner and drinks. Death & Taxes for cocktails. Malolo Poke Bowls for lunch.

Q: If you were going on a Summer holiday to Europe where would you go and what essentials would you pack?
Positano! I’ve never been and everyone’s recent Euro-tripping has got me good this year. I would pack lots of summer suits, lots of linen, bikinis, and of course my 100 step skin routine (haha).

Q: Tell us what you’re most looking forward to at Shop BNE City in September?
SALES, of course! Excited to shop, see the shows and then enjoy Riverfire that night!
