Westfield Parramatta: #WestfieldFamily Exhibition PHOTOS

I am a proud Westie girl from way back (and still proudly live in the region with my family), and a huge supporter of all things Parramatta, having enjoyed watching its growth over the years, the development of the restaurant strip, and the refurbishments across the decades of the shopping mecca that is Westfield Parramatta - catching a train there when I couldn't drive yet, and still going there today for friend catch ups / shopping sprees.

So it was very cool to see Westfield Parramatta celebrate fashion for all generations, unveiling a photo exhibition that will be displayed in centre court until March 12, 2017, as part of their AW17 Campaign.

The campaign honours local identities from the Parramatta and surrounding areas such as event extraordinaire’s Diane Khoury and Jason James, Instagram sensations Natalie Anne (hairstylist) and Melissa Sassine (make up), media personality Sally Obermeder (her first job was at Sussan's Westfield Parramatta store), amongst a host of other local identities from Sydney’s Western Suburbs.

The exhibition was shot by renowned celebrity photographer Steven Chee (best known for his work with Vogue, Harpers and Celebrities such as Miranda Kerr, Erika Packer, Rose Byrne, Hailey Baldwinwith make up by celebrity makeup artist Max May.

Here are some social photos from last night's launch and some portraits on Parramatta's beautiful people.



Peppers Moonah Links Resort: Hotel REVIEW

Peppers Moonah Links Resort is part of the Peppers stable of resort style properties, and is set amongst two world class 18 hole golf courses.

That view! 
The Open course here really is one of a kind - it was the first 18 hole course built and prepared specifically for a national championship, in this case, the Australia Open which Moonah Links hosted in 2003 and 2005.

Peppers Moonah Links Resort looks like it's in the bush, and it kinda is. Located in prime Australian coast and bushland, it's less than an hour and a half from Melbourne. Located in the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, it's a region which boasts both seaside holiday accomodation as well a wine growing region. It's a dichotomous property - its location means you can experience the nearby surf as well as country charm. It ticks all the boxes.

Josie's Juice was a guest here and we'd never been to the region. And we are now in love with it.

From the beautifully appointed, touch of retro rooms, to the sweeping views of the golf greens, to the clever talking points like a bathtub overlooking the golf course, an outdoor shower on the balcony, and comfy beds and lots of room in the rooms, Josie's Juice would not stay anywhere else now when in the region.

Balcony love right here
In 2012, Peppers Moonah Links Resort was voted number 4 on the 'Luxury Travel Gold List' for 'Best Australian Golf Resort'.

Think landscaped gardens, rolling greenery outside your room, plus the opportunity to treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment or outdoor thermal hot spring bath at the neighbouring Peninsula Hot Springs. Oh yeah! Next time for sure. It's right next door and they provide a complimentary buggy service between 9am-5pm (weather permitting). 

The resort’s Pebbles Restaurant is also available for meals, including a beautiful brekkie set amongst the large expanse of green.

Brekkie options
It's a modern Australian menu using fresh Mornington Peninsula produce, and can seat up to 110 guests. In summer, enjoy a meal on either the sunny terrace; in winter, dine with the fire blazing. For a pre-dinner drink or nightcap, head to the in-house bar, the Spike Bar. 

The resort is perfect for couples, corporates, solo travellers, and families, and if it's wine you're after, visit the Cups Estate Winery nearby.

Peppers Moonah Links Resort offers 85 deluxe rooms and suites, all with balconies or terraces overlooking the stunning golf courses or central putting green.

Each room features natural materials, is minimalist heaven, and is stylishly fitted out, a trademark of Peppers.

The room! So beautiful and relaxing

Yes, that bathtub situation - overlooking the great outdoors

The clever design folks at Peppers Moonah Links Resort have brought the indoors to the outdoors with the architecturally designed rooms and balcony, echoing the landscape.

Even the shower feels incredibly relaxing in this setting
The design of the resort is purposeful: it harmonises with the land, moulded from rolling sand dunes promoting a calming atmosphere.

Room with a view
It's just perfect for a weekend escape. Each room offers central air-conditioning and heating, TV, DVD player, internet/data access, refrigerator, complimentary bathroom amenities and full length mirrors. Other facilities available onsite include tennis court, swimming pool, gymnasium and mountain bikes, recreation lawn and central putting green.

Hi! It's me. And that balcony and view, sigh.
What else to do around here? Visit the Mornington Peninsula fishing bays, national parks and golf courses, go horse riding along Gunnamatta beach or swim with the dolphins in Port Phillip Bay. Nearby, in Portsea and Sorrento, you'll find: restaurants, cafes, local markets and antique shops.
