Totally. Freaking. Pointless

I tried my first cronut yesterday. You know, those croissant-donut hybrid thingies. There’s a Zumbo patisserie near my new office and one of my new colleagues bought treats for everyone to share. Cronuts are pretty awesome … I just don’t want to think about how many calories are jammed into those buttery layers of heaven. […]

My new gig

I’ve started doing some contract work for an organisation that’s right up my alley: The Drinks Association. As you might guess, it’s a liquor industry body. I’ll be doing its social media for a bit. My first day on the job was a cushy one: a staff conference at a nearby hotel. I got to […]

Rewriting history

It’s tempting to rewrite history and dismiss my 23-year relationship with my ex-husband as one gigantic mistake. Well, aside from the fact it produced my two divine daughters. But that can’t be true. There was a time when we were happy and in love … I just can’t remember it. I know we were attracted […]

You reap what you sow

Remember being told as a kid not to pull faces because the wind might change and leave you like that? Even though I knew it wasn’t true, it still scared me a bit. And you know what? That old wives’ tale was kinda true. If you pull a face enough, it does stay like that. […]

Kate Hudson’s ‘hot mess’ birthday bash

Kate Hudson loves celebrating her birthday so much that she throws a huge ‘hot mess’ celebration every year. This year she gave it a wedding theme for friends celebrating a birthday around the same time, including author Derek Blasberg and jeweller Jen Meyer. Her Pacific Palisades mansion was wall-to-wall celebs, including Demi Moore, Naomi Cammpbell, […]

How celebs marked Earth Day 2016

It was pretty rough to learn on Earth Day that 93% of the Great Barrier Reef has been impacted by bleaching. “I have cried. I have broken down in front of cameras. This is the most devastating, gut-wrenching fuck up,” Professor Justin Marshall, of the University of Queensland, told The Guardian yesterday. “This is Australia’s […]

Forgetting the bleeding obvious

Have you ever forgotten for a moment that someone you love has passed away and reached for the phone to call them? It still happens to me with my grandmother, all these years later. Divorce can be a bit like that. Sometimes you forget, ever so briefly, that your relationship is dead. I took the […]

I don’t know how to stop

I lied when I said I was getting better yesterday. I felt like shite. But it’s so boring when people moan, moan, complain, complain. It also felt a little surreal to still be sick after more than two weeks. I suspect I’d have recovered faster if I’d spent a bit more time resting on the […]

Celebrities share their heartbreak over Prince

I can’t quite believe I’m writing the words: Prince Rogers Nelson has died at age 57. “It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning,” his publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said. Police responded to a medical call and found […]
