I came to Australia with my parents when I was five and have lived in Townsville ever since. I completed a Bachelor of Journalism at JCU and have worked in media, marketing and public relations in Townsville for the past 20 years. I’ve been married for 16 years and we have two daughters. I have a real passion for travel and I’m always saving for the next big trip – this time Italy, Germany and Austria. This year I joined the choir and performed in a musical for the very first time – Les Misérables with the Townsville Choral Society. Had the best time!
MY BAG I bought this bag at Sportsgirl because the neutral colour means it goes with everything.
SOUVENIRS I love little trinkets that remind me of our holidays. Here is an American dollar bill from New York and a thong keyring from Hawaii.
MAKEUP As a working mum always on the run, I’m often putting make up on in the car in the car park.
ESSENTIAL OIL I recently learned about the benefits of essential oils – this one is a citrus blend that is a great mid afternoon pick-me-up. I just put a drop on my hands, rub together and breathe in the smell.
WILLOW TREE I have quite a collection of these figurines. My husband bought me this one. It’s my favourite.
FLYER For months in the lead up to Les Misérables I haven’t gone anywhere without these flyers, handing them out to everyone I talk to. Whether I’m in the show or not, promoting local events is something I’m passionate about.
COFFEE CUP I’m always on the go, so I like to take a coffee with me.
PERFUME I adore this Roberto Cavalli perfume – I bought this one in duty free on my way home from New Zealand last year. Ask my husband, there’s nothing I love more than a bargain!
MINTS Working in PR and media I deal with lots of new people every day so it’s important to make a good first impression!
FAMILY PHOTO Even though it’s an old photo, this pic reminds me of happy times so I like to carry it with me. Also reminds me how much the kids have grown!
HAIR TIES AND BOBBY PINS My girls both dance so having extra hair ties and bobby pins on hand is a must.
EARRINGS My girls and I are obsessed with Stomping Elephants earrings that we buy at local markets. It’s the little things that make me happy and they’re just so pretty and unique.
