The Perfect Storm

Our day was scheduled for well over one month, with the eponymous website www.thegracetales.com.au to include my little girl CC and I in a story. The shoot and interview were to capture moments in a day, in our New York life.

We woke that morning to see a fresh coat of white snow ( possibly the 20th this winter ) but perfectly timed nonetheless ! So spent time outdoors enjoying the stillness of New York before the snow ploughs started and roads became grotty. There is nothing better than the calm in New York, immediately after a snowfall and nothing better to be captured in this story and images that CC and I will cherish forever.

Miami – in 36 hours

We escaped the Spring chill in New York last week, to the pastel hued climes of Miami. A constant inspiration in the Rachael Ruddick collections are retro beachside looks – circles, arches, pops of colour and texture, so there was great anticipation when we booked our tickets to fly to the sunny south. We stayed at the St Regis Bal Harbour as South Beach was thumping to the beat of various electric music raves.

Here are my suggestions of what to do, if you have a swift 36 hours in Miami:


Fountainbleu, St Regis Bal Harbour, Mandarin Oriental, The Standard, Delano


La Golue, Zuma, Yuca


Bal Harbour Mall, Libastyle, The Webster, Design District


Ocean Drive South Beach btwn 5th and 15th sts, Art Deco Historic district, Lincoln Walk restaurants, Design District, Penthouse at Juvia has the best views, away from the tourist traps, take a walk along the beach front esplanade which stretches from South beach north of Bal Harbour. check your calendar to attend the Art Basel Miami.


The spa at the St Regis.
