Well removed from fashion week, Thredbo gears up for an onslaught of the Clicquot champagne set

As Rosemount Australian Fashion Week in Sydney soldiers on and on and on, here’s one mega-sounding event that some social circuiteers will be marking in their diaries...

When the below media release came through, it just sounded like a complete and pure escape. So, here you go:

“Veuve Clicquot hits Thredbo this season with the arrival of Clicquot in the Snow 2010, a celebration of two of life’s great pleasures, Veuve Clicquot and après ski.

The inaugural Clicquot in the Snow will be held in Thredbo on Thursday 22 – Sunday 25 July, with champagne flowing at a series of unique Veuve Clicquot experiences. The village will turn “Clicquot yellow” with events including après ski parties, exclusive dinners, tastings, even gorgeous picnics in the snow.

As the Aussie summer sun starts to fade, Phuket sounds nice

A while ago I was invited by the owners of Sri Panwa to test out their resort on the island of Phuket over a long weekend. And there was nothing not to love...

‘Perched high on the tip of the exquisitely picturesque Cape Panwa on the delicious Thai Island of Phuket, there is nothing not to adore about this place. And let’s face it, there is hardly ever a dull-weather day.

Comprised of a series of totally private, infinity pool villas that are wrapped around glass-encased bedrooms (the best I’ve ever seen) it’s already being touted as one of the top resorts in Thailand. And so it should. It is simply jaw-droppingly beautiful with sea views stretching out from my pool and everything you need for a full on resort holiday firmly in place.
