What drives Alida to joy:
Fun times in Bondi Beach, New South Wales, Australia, using quality brands such as Asyana self-tanner to help give me that sun-kissed glow and LUXit services when I need a spray tan, massage or other uplifting beauty treatment.
A visit to my favourite clothing store… Camilla for fresh, fierce, original designer pieces, cut in beautiful shapes and flattering silhouettes to enhance any female figure.
I’m not leaving Bondi Beach until I’ve had a gluten-free spinach and ricotta pizza at Pompei’s.
Acknowledgment to Sue Robbins Photography for my portrait photography. If you have a chance to look at her photos, many of her stunning, unforgettable images linger long after you’ve viewed them.
My local epicurean hangout is in Hawthorn East, Victoria, Australia. The food and ambiance are simply beautiful at my favourite dining location, The Meat Wine Co on Riversdale Road.
For simply stunning jewellery with hints of fabulousness and flavours of brilliance, I head to Rutherford in Camberwell, Victoria, Australia, for favoured precious pieces and sparkling gems.
When it’s time to relax, I love to be inspired by the motivational and encouraging consciousness that transpires in The Eden Magazine published by Maryam Morrison. The images are full of insightful snippets, full of warmth, wit and wisdom. I can’t thank Maryam enough for helping me reach out to touch my audience and engage with likeminded people.
I love seeing beyond the ordinary by peeping at the world through the beautiful and quirky frames that hint at French style at OPTIQUE DE PARIS. I always find delightful custom eyewear that complements me perfectly.
Pilates is a favourite workout for me because a strong core is the essence of a healthy body and mind. I love working out – or just hanging out – in Lululemon for its incredible fabrics that are designed for energy!
My childhood fascination with Barbie dolls has been restored following a delightful dining experience at MoneyPenny restaurant and bar at The Boardwalk in Newcastle, New South Wales. See for yourself!
I’d like to thank Kym Wallis for her enduring images, which she has so very kindly allowed me to use to help inspire my audience.
