Summer by the sea with Natalie Petrevski

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” - Henry James

Keep going until you reach the shore. Chase the sun and feel the heat, new adventures await. Can summer stay forever?

Escaping …
This year I’ll be driving down the South Coast to the ever sunny and beautiful beachside location of Mollymook, staying at the luxurious and relaxing coastal escape, Bannisters By The Sea. Enjoying ocean views, cocktails by the pool bar and delicious, fresh ocean-to-plate seafood at Rick Stein's. And not to forget a soothing treatment at Bannisters day spa in one of their private spaces for the ultimate in tranquil retreat. Breathe in and out.

Essentials …
Accessories play an important role this summer. From the perfect gold shell necklace, to the bucket bag that takes you from beach to night and that one great pair of sandals you wear on repeat. Not to mention mass bikinis for ocean dips and plenty of sunscreen and oil for hydration and glow. Living my best life.

Celebrating …
Watching the sunset on the shore and chasing sparklers on the soft sand. Time to reset, rewind, relax and enjoy a drink or two (or three) … Retreats like this call for icy cocktails in hand and dancing to Cher. Always.
