 Describe your Bali wardrobe. 

My Bali wardrobe is very relaxed and different from my event wardrobe. I wear my new label Rama Voyage, Storm swimwear from local store Tropicana and denim shorts (they’re are a must)!

 Where do you shop? 

Unfortunately, I don’t really get time to shop in Bali – unless it’s for homewares! I always window shop on my way to Ubud to drop the kids at school.  

 What about the best spot for a morning coffee? 

Revolver Espresso in Seminyak. As an Australian I am obsessed with a good coffee and this place has the best!

 Must-visit tourist destination?  

Climb Mt Batur to watch the sunrise, it’s beyond beautiful. Mt Batur is an active volcano and from the top you can see into the crater and out to gorgeous Lake Batur. 

 It’s time to eat – where to for a good meal and a few sneaky after-dinner drinks? 

Canggu, a resort village on the south coast, has it all – The Sow (for roof top drinks), The Lawn beach lounge, The Como and Mama San restaurant are my favourites.  

 If I’m after a luxury escape, where’s the best place to stay? 

Canggu! Rent a villa instead of hotel – unless it’s luxury you are after, then stay at Alila or Como Ubud.

 Tell me about your just-released label Rama Voyage – who is it for?  

Rama Voyage is a label for anyone who loves destination and resort wear. I am obsessed with old school chic glamour and how women travel with a wardrobe. Destination wear is not just for tropical islands, it’s also for a chic city escape.  

 What do you love most about Bali?  

Bali is such a magical place. There’s such diversity, with people from all over the world living together. It’s relaxing – and I do enjoy living bi-costal as I get the best of both worlds!
