The Lost At E Minor team love a good old G&T at the end of a busy week, so when Hendricks invited us out in Sydney to celebrate our beloved beverage of choice we jumped at the chance. Little did we know that we were off to a curious and unusual night to discover the […]
If you’re wandering the streets of Potts Point, Surry Hills or Darlinghurst, in Sydney, over the next few days, you may happen upon, as I did, a beautiful love letter from the 1940s. Sydney psychologist, artist and hopeful romantic, Alexandra Ehrenberg, has collated and transcribed a series of love letters from the war times of […]
The Cullen, located in Melbourne’s stylish South Yarra, is one of three boutique hotels in the Art Series Group, which dedicates hotels to individual artists such as Australian greats Adam Cullen, John Olsen and Charles Blackman. This beautiful boutique hotel experience immerses the guest in the aesthetic style of the artist. In The Cullen’s case, […]
Until recently I didn’t realize you could become a loyalist to your barista. If you’ve discovered one good coffee roaster, where’s the need to discover another, right? Wrong. I now know what it feels like to “cheat” on your barista. Corduroy is much more than your typical hole-in-the-wall espresso joint. Nestled on Foster street in […]
The Australian summer is upon us, which means fabulous beachside parties and ice-cold cocktails. Enter Australian designer Georgia Osborne, who has launched her first Summer collection and new online store just in time for the season.
Gorgeous, delicate and feminine are the words that spring to mind when you first land your eyes on Australian fashion designer Binny’s 2012/13 Spring Summer collection. Inspired by friends and their stories; Sunday at the Polo; long lunches in the sun; and Sicilian ceramics in warm kitchen light, the collection is created from embroideries, lace […]
Pink Lou Lou is an Australian jewellery label born from a friendship necklace in the shape of Tasmania. You can’t help but swoon over the delicate bracelets, necklaces, charms, and rings. Skye Campbell has created pieces which are inspired by times past and each piece of sterling silver and gold has me hooked. Primary coloured […]
Everyone loves a good dress up, and sometimes, less is more. On a summer holiday across the US and Europe, two Aussie blokes developed an idea that came purely from having too much fun in the sun. Glasses with Moustaches are the first cab off the rank in the range and we were lucky enough to have Swaggers launch unofficially at the Lost At E Minor party. Let’s just say they were a hilarious hit, but we’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
Sometimes you come across an artist who really touches your soul, whether it be a painter, a dancer, or in this case, a musician. My good friend, Stephen Hunt (yes, he played Matt Hancock on Neighbours and, yes, he is famous for being one of just 200 people to successfully swim the English Channel in […]
A freak torrential downpour and hail storm on the first day may have turned Splendour in the Grass’s temporary home of Belongil fields – in NSWs beautiful Byron Bay – into a virtual slip ‘n slide. But that didn’t stop anyone from rocking their gumboots off. The rest of the weekend bought sunny days and loads of phenomenal local and international acts. The crowd crammed the GW McLennan tent to see opening act Chet Faker; Gossling’s angelic voice soared far across the mud-soaked lakes; while The Beautiful Girls (in one of their last shows ever) sent a chilled out crowed into a swaying spin.
If you’re lucky enough to be heading to Splendour in the Grass in NSW’s beautiful Byron Bay this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, then make sure you download the new Splendour in the Grass 2012 iPhone app, which is available in the App store. If you’re an avid festival goer, you’ll agree this is an awesome […]
I came across Australian designer Dannika Zen last year, instantly falling in love with her Road Boots. It’s simple, stylish and super comfortable. Little wonder the collection sold out in a matter of weeks. Following a stint in a high-end fashion house in Berlin, Dannika Zen returned home to Australia three years ago with a […]
The contemporary and elegant Blackman, in Melbourne, is the newest hotel in the Art Series Group. As is the theme of the Art Series, the hotel celebrates one of Australia’s most influential artists: Charles Blackman. Having visited The Cullen six months prior, I was taken by the way an artist’s work can so significantly change the feel of a room.
A new love has seen me spend more and more time in Sydney’s Deep South, Cronulla, and consequently, I’ve been watching with interest the stylish refurbishment of the suburb’s iconic Old Library. A project two years in the making for Mario Kalpou, this place is set to revolutionize the beachside suburb’s food and entertainment scene.
