Where to get the best coffee in LA?Just ask an Aussie

You’ve landed in LA either on holidays or to catch your break and move here. LA–the US in fact–is not known for its coffee so you’re in search of a good cup of coffee.  Maybe you’ve lived in LA for five years and are still searching. Where to get the best…

It’s a fair question isn’t it? Can you get scouted just by surfing in Malibu? After all it is LA and you hear stories like that all the time. How did you start modelling? Well I was shopping and a talent scout handed me her card and told me to come into…

After two weeks failing to put pen to paper (so to speak) I'm here to talk about College move-in--dropping my son to College aka Uni.

Give me a second to get a coffee (or maybe something a little stronger), a box of tissues and perhaps some chocolate.  It’s not easy but I’m here to talk about College move-in, the inevitable trip to drop my son to College aka Uni. A week ago was move-in…

Have you ever heard people say LA has no culture? I've heard it plenty of times. And I'm here to tell you LA has a culture all of it's own. Here are five things that make LA ... well, LA.

I’m back in LA and, as if we were still living in China, I get a case of severe culture shock when we get back. Oh yes, you might not think so but LA has a very distinct culture. And it’s hands-down more noticeable when you get back than when you’re in…

Because I've lived to tell the tale here's a little trip down memory lane of how we coped with being Australians applying for College in the US (and it also has a little section if you're an Aussie living in the US applying for uni back home!)

An Australian’s perspective–an Australian applying for American College from the US. What a relief: we live to tell the tale! I’ve tried to avoid boring you with woeful tales of stress about applying to get into College in the US as Australians living…

G'Day USA Gala the best event in LA. My little behind-the-scenes observations about my fave event here.

By an (Australian) country mile (or should that be kilometre?) G’Day USA Gala in LA is the best event in LA. Bar none. Well maybe except if I was nominated for an Oscar or Golden Globe. Actually probably not even. There’s something so comfortable about…

The last time we celebrated Australia Day in LA. A story sponsored by Bundaberg Ginger Beer

Do you celebrate Australia Day in LA? Did I tell you about the first and the last time we celebrated Australia Day in LA? It was a doozy.  So much so that it was about four years ago.  Each year I think about holding another Australia Day party and each…

Do you sell everything in Australia and rebuy it in LA or ship it over? I summarise a recent discussion on a Facebook group and present you with their responses.

It’s a great question: do you sell everything in Australia and rebuy it in LA or ship it over? You’ve decided to take the plunge and live the dream. Or maybe, like us, you get an opportunity offered to you on a silver platter. “You’re moving to…

The Golden Globes 2018 have come and gone for one more year, here's my LA rundown of watching the ceremony at home (in my black hoodie of course)

This year I was able to watch the Golden Globes as the past two years I’ve been working. Yay! I realised as I was watching from the comfort of my living room in my black hoodie that I was playing spot your mates at the Golden Globes ceremony. Yes the 75th…

Good health, good luck & good fortune for 2018. A look at Southern traditions in LA and a recap on our Aussie Christmas. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018.  Here’s to good health, good luck & good fortune for 2018. I’ve got a (good) feeling about 2018.  I think it’s going to be a good, good year. And if that line reminds you of a popular song you might well be right. I’m…
