"Time flys when your having fun" and so it goes that AURA has turned 10! and we celebrated in style at The Bite Club in Sydney to thank our wonderful Media friends for their generous support over the last 10 years and to also launch our new Winter 2011 collection.  The new collection has been inspired by a journey into the Andalusian countryside thanks to my recent trip to Spain and what a perfect venue. Thank you everyone who attended it was a wonderful night, and a very special thank you to the fabulous AURA team, Jaine and Jess, we are a very passionate team and we have all worked so hard on AURA to enable it to grow into the wonderful brand that it has become. Here's to the next 10 years!!

The Beautiful Paris in Winter

Oh the lovely Paris, beautiful at all times of the year, but especially in Winter. I love the dark skys of Winter, it puts a shadow of grey over the whole city which would make other countries dull but for some reason I think it actully makes Paris more mysterious and wonderful. French architecture actually looks like it should be grey! A lot of legwork was done in a very short time in Paris, and a special thank you to our AURA Marketing Manager, Jaine Fulcher, for her super navigation skills on the underground and for remembering much more school girl French than Moi!

The fastest way to Paris

St Pancras, the new home for the Eurostar is amazing, it has been fully renovated and is the home to some truely beautiful architecture and dining experiences, click the link to find out more. This is the best way to get from London to Paris without the travel time of heading all the way to Heathrow. Make sure you drop in at the Champagne bar along the way!

London in January

Hello everyone! I am finally back from Frankfurt in Germany where we exhibited at the Heimtextil fair as well as a great trip to UK, Paris and Copenhagen, I have some inspiring images to share with you from my travels and sorry its been such a long time between posts! I brought myself a fancy ipad for Christmas and after trying several times realised either I can not do blog posts from it or my computer skills are not up to scratch!? Above are some super cool stores and their windows in London, as well as the lovely Jamie Oliver's Italian resturant at Westfield.
