Amanda Reboul lived for many years in France where she developed an interest in wine and champagne with her French husband. Her understanding of wine making was enhanced by regular visits to winemakers in the Loire Valley, Burgundy, the Rhône Valley, Languedoc-Roussillon and Champagne (for which she has a particular passion). Countless tastings over the years have also served to develop her palate. During her time in France, Amanda became inducted as a ‘Chevalier-Sabreur’ (sabering knight) with the Confrerie du Sabre d’Or, an association founded to promote the enjoyment of drinking champagne with the art of sabrage.

In 2016, Amanda established Australia’s first Champagne Festival, Effervescence, to provide a real Champagne experience to champagne enthusiasts without the need to travel to France. She also runs regular champagne tasting events, including masterclasses, lunches, dinners, and leads a much sort after tour to the Champagne region in October each year.

Amanda is currently completing her WSET Level 3 qualification - an international qualification in Wine and Spirits Education.

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
