The people behind this issue reveal their hot lists
The Melbourne-based writer and editor (and Nora Ephron enthusiast) analyses her obsession in “Everybody Loves Nora” on p45
On my playlist: I can’t stop listening to the podcast My Favorite Murder. It’s so unsettling and icky, but I’m totally hooked against my better judgement.
On my reading list: I just finished Adult Fantasy by Briohny Doyle – my 30th is quickly approaching and I’m having a lot of “we aren’t grown-ups… are we?” conversations with my equally concerned friends.
On my to-do list: Write a book of humorous essays that I have been thinking about for years, argh!
On my wish list: The perfect pair of black leather boots that go with everything.
On my bucket list: Visit New Zealand. I’m dying to go on The Lord Of The Rings tour that my nerdy heart so longs for.
On my blacklist: When I’m binge-watching Netflix and it asks me if I want to continue watching. It comes across way more judgemental than any digital streaming service has the right to be.
GUS & STELLA
@GUS_AND_STELLA The illustrative duo, whose work has been featured in ELLE UK and Glamour Paris, add a tactile touch to this month’s #Timetoact pages On our playlist: We love a jazz/soul vibe, mixing Henri Texier and Melanie De Biasio with Wes Montgomery, Serge Gainsbourg and Marvin Gaye.
On our reading list: We have a huge stack of back issues of Apartamento and T magazine to work through.
On our to-do list: Turning our photo archive into a personal book project or exhibition.
On our wish list: Find the perfect vintage beige linen summer suit (for Gus) and a cool off-white boiler suit (for Stella). On our bucket list: Next year we’re heading to New York, Paris, Brussels, Munich and Lisbon, then travelling through Morocco in a VW van. Our goal is to live in each city for at least a month. On our blacklist: Unsustainable thinking – transparency is the key to a brighter future.
@TENEILLESORG Her client list includes Cara Delevingne, A$AP Rocky, and labels like Céline and Chloé, so obviously the in-demand makeup artist lent an It-girl edge to this month’s First Look fashion pages On my playlist: I’m obsessed with Novo Amor and Ed Tullett, Tinariwen, Cog and LCD Soundsystem and The Boat That Rocked soundtrack.
On my reading list: Right now, I’m into Gut by Giulia Enders – it takes an inside look at our digestive system.
On my to-do list: I’d love to take watercolour classes and get the ultimate facial from Endota Spa.
On my wish list: Anything from Céline’s pre-fall 18 collection. On my bucket list: Swim with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef.
On my blacklist: It really winds me up when you have something on your face and no-one tells you.
@TEDODONNELL He’s travelled the world (camera in hand) and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon, so who better than this international photographer to capture the journey of a Tiffany diamond on p86
On my playlist: Podcasts have been a revelation lately. With two young kids, I relish any opportunity to listen to an adult conversation uninterrupted. History On Fire and The Joe Rogan Experience are staples.
On my reading list: Tribe by Sebastian Junger – I first read his work on a long train ride through Thailand when I was 18. I’ve loved him as a writer ever since.
On my to-do list: A couple of days at The Brando [luxury resort in French Polynesia] would be nice.
On my wish list: Another good book… and the time to read it. On my bucket list: I’ve always wanted to surf with my two girls. They’re a little young now, but I hope this dream becomes a reality.
On my blacklist: Social media echo chambers and orange-faced sociopaths.
