Madeline Smith

When my mother announced to me at the tender age of 11 that we would be moving from Melbourne to Brisbane, I imagined a Summer Bay-esque future by the beach. I was sorely mistaken and subsequently spent the next few years in denial of my residence in sweaty Queensland. I have since made peace with Brisbane and after 11 years am proud to call this city home. There has never been a more exciting time than now to live in Brisbane and I love being able to watch the food, culture and lifestyle scenes flourish. I'm passionate about all things creative and I have a rather unhealthy addiction to beauty products and makeup. I'll take any excuse to watch a film, buy a new lipstick, listen to new music or swig a fancy cocktail; writing for Creative Drinks is just the excuse i'm looking for!
