This Week In Talent (29 Apr)

Note From The Editor

Oh hey there! I took Monday off this week, and my boyfie Max and I went down the Great Ocean Road and let me tell you … I am feeling ZEN! What a glorious part of the world. We did so much touristy stuff it was insane, and I cried when we got to Loch Ard Gorge and the Twelve Apostles. We got there for sunrise on Sunday morning, and although it was early and cold and raining … my gawd was it divine and magical. I’ve never seen anything like it. There’s nothing like seeing the giant apostles in the raging open ocean to make you feel like a tiny insignificant spec in the grand scheme of things. Check out my insta here to see some insanely awesome piccies from the weekend. I saved a bunch of them in my insta highlight reel.

This is my public service announcement to say … TAKE MONDAY OFF AND HAVE A LONG WEEKEND! Go somewhere you haven’t been before – book a cheap Air BnB. Leave your work laptop and phone at home, and enjoy. Your mental health will thank you for it.
