You MIGHT have spotted me gallivanting about in CANNES last week ! ✨😱✨It was VERY incredible and of course very French and *ooh la la* 🇫🇷It’s not exactly a common occurrence for me to dash off to the South of France for a 3-day-getaway - I was a guest of @nespresso for this very special trip, as they are a long-standing sponsor of the Cannes Film Festival. No, I didn’t meet George…(!) but I was lucky enough to walk the Cannes red carpet, which was the most magical experience! We spent a large amount of time being wined, dined and caffeinated at #NespressoPlage amazing pop-up restaurant on the beach ☕️ and at the very futuristic new Nespresso concept store in Cannes. If you’d like to see more highlights from the trip, head over to our Facebook page (link in profile) for a few of my travel snaps! #NespressoTastemakers

EXHIBITION • A sadness that cannot be conveyed by words has been the unlikely catalyst for Vipoo Srivilasa’s (@vipooart) latest exhibition, ‘Happy Together’, which opens @edwinacorlettegallery in Brisbane tomorrow.
