Rainbow Chasers :: Catherine Lakeland of The Parcel Project


Tonight I'm stoked to announce a fun collaboration with one of my favourite and serendipitous connections that Instagram has brought my way... The Parcel Project! The gorgeous founder Catherine and I have been crushing on each other's businesses for more than a year now, and when we finally connected in real life on a beautiful morning in Melbourne back in summer... it only took a few moments discussing our mutual LOVE for beautiful packaging, hidden surprises, happy mail in the post and sips of a good Melbourne coffee for a collaboration to inevitably reveal itself!

Catherine asked me to curate a themed parcel box filled with my most favourite travel and lifestyle related treats (coffee features heavily, naturally). Fun! And excitingly, we launch this box tonight! And I'm also thrilled to share more of Catherine's business story, featuring her as a Rainbow Chaser. Read on for all of the goods.

hidden treasures, laneway art + incredible architecture: photo diary of a weekend with InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto

You know how some experiences feel… layered? Where the deeper you go and fall into the experience, the more fascinating and other worldly it all becomes. You become a part of another reality for a moment in time. Two weeks ago, I had this very experience, when invited as guest of Melbourne’s InterContinental The Rialto to celebrate hidden treasures, laneway art, incredible architecture and 70 years of international experience. The entire weekend was something akin to a fairytale - a level of hospitality and little details like I had never experienced before. The food - the five star luxury - the surprises waiting on our beds every. single. time. we returned to our room - and even more than that, the fascinating history behind InterContinental hotel group and InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto building itself... it was the kind of reality I could have lived inside forever! Here’s some captured moments from our  weekend.
