BROOKE WINKS TRAVEL BUG

PROPERTY MANAGER/CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER AT THINK PINK PROPERTY. AFTER TRAVELLING AND SEEING SOME OF THE WORLD IT HAS REALLY MADE ME APPRECIATE WHAT A GREAT, SUNNY CITY WE LIVE IN, HERE IN TOWNSVILLE. SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME IS I HAVE BEEN A VOLUNTEER FOR CANTEEN FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS, IT IS SUCH A WORTH WHILE ORGANISATION AND I ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF IT!

THE BAG I got this bag at Forever New. I always love their bags as they are feminine, classy and I love that it is big enough for me to fit everything in. The bigger the handbag the better! I always get compliments whenever I take it out. HAIR STRAIGHTENER If my house was burning down this would probably be one of the first things I grab! Ladies, am I right? I seriously don’t know where I would be without her and her magical hair straightening powers. ‘POLAROIDS’ PICS Taken at two of my best friend’s wedding – crazy group of friends, a photobooth and vino – a recipe for some ‘memorable’ photos! PERFUME My partner got me this Mark Jacobs Dot perfume for Christmas. I had wanted it as soon as it came out (mainly because I think the bottle is so cute) but I also love the fruity floral scent. It is perfect for every day. JOHN MAYER CD John Mayer is my all-time favourite musician. I could listen to his music all day, every day. I still remember getting to meet him on the weekend of my 21st birthday after one his concerts. He was at a bar my friends and I went to and we got to have drinks with him and his band – still one of the greatest nights of my life! iPAD Working in real-estate I am always out of the office and on the go. We are trying to make our office green/ paperless so the iPad definitely gets a work out. It was also my favourite travel companion and has all my travel pictures on it so I love that I can look at my Europe photos every day and reminisce. MAKE UP BAG/MAKE UP This little make up bag is from Greece and is the perfect size to carry my makeup/lip gloss and hair ties.

WATCH I bought this watch on one of my favourite days of my travels when I was in Paris. I spent the day by myself wandering the Parisian streets, eating and drinking in little cafes and looking at all the shops on Champs Elysees and as soon as I saw this watch I knew it had to be mine. DREAM JOURNAL I like to write down all my dreams and goals. I really believe in the power of having them down on paper and looking at them every day. I carry this with me every day for inspiration and also to jot down any new goals. SUNGLASSES Just some cheap sunglasses that my friends brought back from Bali. I can never own a pair of expensive sunglasses as I have a habit of breaking/losing them. I think this is pair number three this year! JAPANESE MIRROR My old boss bought this in Japan for me. I think it’s one of those essentials to have in your bag at all times. COIN PURSE This is from San Sebastian in Spain. One of my favourite European destinations. This little purse is perfect for all my parking meter change! TIFFANY AND CO. PASSPORT HOLDER My partner bought this for me for our 2 year anniversary. I’ll get to use it again soon because we’re planning a trip to Bali in July! LUCKY CHARM One of my good friends from high school bought me this lucky charm before I went away. I carry it everywhere, I haven’t had any bad luck yet so it must work! KEY RINGS Some of my trinkets from travels that I carry with me every day. They make me happy when I look at them. From Ibiza, Egypt and Paris.
