Welcome to our wonderful Winter issue...
Quote of the season...
"What good is the warmth of Summer,
without the cold of Winter to give it sweetness."
And, there is definitely a lot of sweetness to Winter...eating comfort food; drinking rich red wines while snuggled up under a blanket; lying in bed late on a cold weekend morning; contemplating the decadent chocolate desserts on offer at the local restaurants; checking out the Sales in the boutiques - and working around the garden in preparation for the coming Spring.
Although this season has finally shown us it's chillier side... there's no need to overcompensate - this is the Sunshine State, so it will be a short visit.
Noosa has been so exciting lately.
Noosa Style Magazine was thrilled to have been given the opportunity to organise the 'Best of British' prestige motoring spectacular in Hastings Street at the French Quarter recently for Sunshine Automotive Prestige, the S. E. Queensland dealerships for Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and McLaren (check out the feature page 16).The event gave lovers of luxury cars the opportunity to walk around and see them up-close and personal.
Many fathers were overheard telling their excited young children that the McLaren was actually a Transformer! And, many a young man was rethinking his career choices and dreaming of the car he would own in the future.
Locals and visitors also flocked into Noosa to feast and party at the new-look Noosa Food & Wine 2016; and we've seen the passing of the baton between luxury hotel brands Sheraton and Sofitel in Hastings Street.
This town is definitely pumping!
New players, new advantages, new horizons... Noosa is a town that continues to grow, prosper and evolve.
This issue we introduce you a couple of young adventurers Ben, Rebekah and their little daughter Leilani, who have just returned from a trip to India; we also catch up with the 'designing women' at Bistro C, owner Lorraine and daughter Chloe, whose eye for detail shapes the polished decor of the restaurant; we visit award-winning, grand make-up artist, Elizabeth Kramar and take a glimpse into her 'beautiful' life; and just for a little bit of 'Hollywood' Australian style - we talk to Aussie star Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling about their newfound friendship, and the fun they had working together on their new movie, The Nice Guys.
For lovers of art we take you on a journey with Noosa Open Studios this August, a new initiative that affords art aficionados the opportunity to visit artists and craftsmen at work in their own studios and properties.
Sit back, snuggle up, relax, sip a glass of wine and read...
