OK, I understand

WELL it’s been another jam-packed week over here… First up though, with the Australian government right now!? Such a mess. If you’re looking for a little inspiration in this pretty depressing political time, this impassioned speech from Greens leader Richard Di Natale did the trick for me. Ugh, anyway. Onwards and upwards.

I chatted with the incredible Kristina Karlsson of kikki.K fame on the latest TDF Talks episode release yesterday, who shared some business savvy pearls of wisdom. It’s already one of our most downloaded podcasts yet – get on it!

This week I hung out in Sydney for a couple of days, to speak at Creative Cult – an event hosted by  Harry The Hirer for Australia’s most talented event designers!  I also took the opportunity to record some new podcast conversations with a couple of guests you’ve been asking to hear from. Keep your requests coming in – we’re listening!

My favourite story of the week came from our wonderful new writer Miriam McGarry, featuring 10 AMAZING architectural homes you can stay in. Just putting it out there – I would LOVE to take the whole team to the epic Seidler house for a TDF vaycay. Okay universe, now do your thing!

Next week we’ll be delving into the world of fashion (!) featuring a BEYOND gorgeous shoot from local stylist Kate Gaskin and photographer Mark Roper. A little out of our regular wheelhouse, I know, but the results are seriously beautiful!
