I have long admired the ethos behind Kinfolk magazine and was excited to finally attend one of their Sydney events. The Kinfolk Table lunch hosted by the lovely Lisa Madigan and Natalie Haylaar (of Eat, Read, Love) was held in the beautiful garden of Lisa’s country cottage in the Kangaroo Valley and was exactly as I imagined it. An abundance of delicious food from the team at Mario’s Kitchen, complemented by glasses of refreshing wine and calming gourmet teas were all styled to Kinfolk perfection and made for a delightful afternoon. It was a photographers dream and a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I’m definitely looking forward to the next Kinfolk event in Sydney.

And here are couple of photos of Lisa’s gorgeous cottage which had an assortment of curios in every nook and cranny. It was like stepping into the pages of a beautiful interiors  magazine!

Getting my watercolour on

When I was younger, I would while away the afternoon painting mauve sunsets and landscapes using watercolours so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that The Schoool was running a Watercolour 101 class . I jumped at the chance of rediscovering my childhood love which also gave me the perfect excuse to try anther creative venture. It was a beginners class for adults and kids which highlights the fact this is a medium anyone can master. I may not have produced a masterpiece but it made me realise how much I enjoy painting.
