M I X T A P E - Dancin' in the Kitchen

Saturday nights we like to pour ourselves a cheeky cocktail, pump the tunes and dive into some cooking.  We like our tunes loud and fun with the occasional belter you can sing to thrown in.  Dancin' in the Kitchen is sure to get the booty swinging.

O B S E S S I O N S - July

It’s been a while.  No excuse other than time.  Seeing as us Sydneysiders are going to be spending a little extra time at home this month I thought I’d dedicate some time to this month’s obsessions.  Enjoy.

C R E W - Take a moment with Local is Lovely, Sophie Hansen

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to sit down with Sophie Hansen, author of 'In Good Company' and the beautiful blog Local is Lovely. Sophie, based in Orange, is a guru of all thing’s food & entertaining. Her recipes are our go-to for entertaining friends. My personal aesthetic is... Relaxed, fun, colourful. Right now, I’m constantly wearing… Jeans, Bensimon sneakers and my Irving & Powell shirts of course! 
 The most essential item in my wardrobe is… Can I have a couple? I love a patterned skirt and shirt combo. The smell that transports me to a different time and place… Jasmine - reminds me of walking home from the bus after school in summer and dreaming of the long holidays to come. My teenage crush was… Johnny Depp! This song is the soundtrack to my life… I’m not sure if it’s the soundtrack for my whole life but for my adult life I think ‘Gold in them Hills’ by Ron Sexsmith. My guilty pleasure is… Currently? Watching the Bold Type on Stan. It reminds me a bit of my first job in glossy magazines. Tonight, for dinner, I’m going to have… My Mum’s lasagna! We are staying with my parents for the holiday and this is my whole family’s favourite thing. Right now I’m reading… Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe. My invite list  – living or dead – to the ultimate dinner party, would be …Ah! That’s a hard one!My husband (of course!)Nigella Lawson (because I love her so much!)Da Vinci (so many questions)Russel Brand (feel like he would bring some cheek and interesting ideas to the table – have you listened to his podcast yet? So good.)Emma Thompson (because I feel like she is warmth and humor and good grace all rolled into one)Hannah Gadsby (because her one woman show ‘Nanette’ was one of the most powerful things I’ve ever seen and I’ve been in awe of her ever since and think she’d bring fab conversation!)...and I would feed them all… I think I’d do a really beautiful, simple lamb roast with crunchy spuds, good gravy and lots of lovely vegetable sides. And for dessert, a warm lemon curd pudding with ice cream. My fave way to wear my Franklin shirt…Boring I know but just with my jeans and sneakers. I love how it can make suck a simple outfit feel ‘put together’.  ------- Sophie has on Franklin Gingham Shirt in Indigo and the exclusive Crosby Contrast Bib Shirt in sky, coming soon Visit the Local is Lovely Website Here Buy 'In Good Company' Here Follow Sophie on Instagram Here

  Emily Swift of Printhie Wines in Orange is one of I&Ps favourite admirers and the feeling is very much mutual. Nestled amongst a heritage apple orchard just 10 mins outside of Orange, Printhie Wines is a must-visit destination for your next country escape.   My personal aesthetic is…simple elegant lines and I do love a touch of military styling in jackets. Right now, I’m constantly wearing...my Indigo Stripe Franklin Shirt – great for dressing up for work with a jacket or casual with sleeves rolled up. The most essential item in my wardrobe is...besides my shirt, a navy blazer. The smell that transports me to a different time and place... neroli – it takes me back to Italy in Summer and walking through the beautiful gardens on the Borromean islands of Lake Maggiore. My teenage crush was... Val Kilmer in Top Gun – will be interesting to see what he’s like in the sequel! This song is the soundtrack to my life... My family voted it should be Vance Joy’s Riptide simply because I always get the words wrong in songs. I watched this over and over in my teens… Empire Records  But now I'm bingeing... Dare I admit it but I’ve have been watching Below Deck. It takes me back to when I worked on private yachts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean for a couple of years. Oprah came on our yacht for 2 weeks – she was the most delightful down to earth person. My guilty pleasure is.... gardening whenever I have a spare moment. Tonight, for dinner, I’m going to have... Japanese starting with a bee pollen gin cocktail. We just did a virtual Japanese cooking class with a chef in London so I’m inspired to recreate it. Right now I’m reading... I’m about to start The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth, a friend gave it to me and was raving about it. My invite list  – living or dead – to the ultimate dinner party, would be… oh gosh this is a hard one. I would love to set up a long table in our garden under our willow tree draped in hanging lights. I’d invite Paul Bangay, Monty Don and Peter Fudge to talk about gardens all night.  ...and I would decorate the table with / or feed them with... I’d probably go overboard with flowers on the table and would serve freshly shucked oysters and some of Printhie Wines’ 10 year old Swift Sparkling Blanc de Blancs – the most perfect food and wine pairing.  My fave way to wear my Franklin shirt....with a blazer because in Orange you can get four seasons in one day and you always need a few layers on hand.  ------- Emily has on Franklin Stripe Shirt in Indigo and her mum has Franklin Bold Stripe in Sky Visit the Printhie Wines Website Here Follow them on Instagram Here

C R E W - Lorica Clarke

In celebration of our Lanai & Co launch we asked founder and designer Lorica Clarke to spend 5 min with us on the Journal. We love Lorica’s sense of style and think Lanai and Co is a match made in heaven with I&P...     Please enjoy 5 Min with LANAI & CO Founder, Lorica Clarke   My personal aesthetic is…Boujee´ - luxurious in lifestyle yet humble in character. Right now, I’m constantly wearing… colourful midi dresses - feminine and fun! The most essential item in my wardrobe is… a great summer dress I can throw on and go. The smell that transports me to a different time and place… sea air  My teenage crush was… Daryl Braithwaite in the days of Sherbet in the 70’s. This song is the soundtrack to my life… Summer Breeze by Seals & Crofts. I watched this over and over in my teens…Fame But now I'm bingeing… love going to the art house movie cinemas - currently bingeing on the French film Festival. My guilty pleasure is…. Having an almond croissant with my coffee on a Sunday morning with my Northern Beaches Soul Sisters swim group after our ocean swim at Palm Beach - simple guilty pleasure. Tonight, for dinner, I’m going to have… Ottolenghi’s awesome sauce of mushroom, thyme, dill, chilli & feta with GF chickpea pasta - quick and delish. Right now I’m reading… Ikigai - The Japanese Secret to a long and happy life :) My invite list  – living or dead – to the ultimate dinner party, would be… wow…. Ok so I’d really love to hang out with Sting - I remember back in the 90’s I gave him a card with my phone number on it and passed it to him from the mosh pit while he as on stage performing at The State Theatre - yes he kindly took it, read it, smiled broadly and placed into his guitar strings… it said if your free this Sunday come to my house for lunch….hahaha oh the joy the fantasy of him coming to lunch - but then I get this phone call the next day with this English voice saying “hello is this Lorica - its Sting” my heart burst - he said he’d love to come for lunch!  Turned out to be my husbands best mate (he witnessed this card exchange) and pretended to be Sting accepting the invitation which I 100% fell for - till he burst out laughing…. I’m forever grateful for the hoax coz I truly believed for 1 minute that String was really coming for lunch hahaha! ...and I would decorate the table with / or feed them with… fresh simple flowers, crystal glasses and white tableware - then add shared platters of fresh vegetables and seafood - this to me is the perfect table setting - the colours of the flowers and food create the perfect environment for letting the conversation be relaxed whilst dining with family and friends, oh and Sting!    My fav way to wear my Jane shirt…. With Lanai & co jewellery :)   Lorica wears the I&P Jane Shirt in White $140 Follow LANAI & CO on Instagram here.
