It must be something in the water here in Australia, because I know some pretty damn talented creatives…

One of my favourite things about this digital era is connecting with like-minded people. I love that we all support each other creatively and I love getting suggestions from people when it comes to finding new people to follow, support and invest in. I thought I would take time to show you some incredible talent from Australia just in time for Christmas shopping. Thanks Jasmine (Jasmine Dowling) for inviting me to take part in this bid to support the makers, the movers and the shakers of Australia.

To my international readers, hello! You are bound to find or rediscover some Australian beauties here too!

  • Kelly Smith Scented: I may be biased because Kelly is a great pal o’ mine, but what more could you want for Christmas than this beauty hanging in your house? I forgot to ask her if it was scratch and sniff. Doh!

    Shop Here. Kelly’s Christmas orders cut off on the 15th December.

  • Someday Somewhere Daisy Bag: I am a big fan of their sunglasses, but their new leather range is killer. This soft pink is high on my list.

    Shop Here.

  • An Organised Life Journal: I love supporting talented people and it’s even better when they are oh so lovely. Beck Wadworth’s range is minimal and incredible.

    Shop Here.

  • Blacklist Studio Skull Screen print: I was introduced to Blacklist last year and I have been hooked ever since. Incredible prints and amazing typography.

    Shop Here.

  • The Horse Watch: I love these even more than Daniel Wellington, in fact, I have completely gone off Daniel Wellington because these are just that bit more edgier, bigger and better made. I am yet to buy one, but about 1000 of my friends have them, so it’s bound to happen soon.

    Shop Here.

  • Daring and Disruptive: A great read! I am half way through and feel so inspired for 2015!

    Shop Here.

  • Enflamme Candle: My candle addiction got even larger when I was introduced to this brand this year. It burns for so long and the ceramic holder is stunning.

    Shop Here.

  • Kelly Smith Antlers: Anything with antlers or skulls has be sold. Seriously.

    Shop Here. Kelly’s Christmas orders cut off on the 15th December.
