I was recently invited to the official launch of Aesop Rundle Street, which was designed by Adelaide’s own Genesin Studio. Guests were offered wines, cheeses, strawberries and berry infused water whilst familiarizing themselves with the chic new digs. The interior features solid timber, Tasmanian oak, antique green marble and blackened steel rods. Unlike other Aesop stores that I have explored, the aesthetic of this east end sanctuary also features a consultation lounge complete with fireplace, leather bound books and armchair.

In need of new skincare for the road trip I was taking the following day, I purchased the Sage & Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream and had a few other handy goodies provided in the gift bag (pictured below). We stayed at a shack in the Yorke Peninsula and I opted to keep my skincare and makeup routine to a minimal. Fittingly, the trip marked the anniversary of my 7th year in Australia. This allowed me to celebrate in the most Australia way I know how; barbeque breakfasts, cocktails in between beach walks and fishing.
