About

Laura McWhinnie | THIS ISLAND LIFE

Summer is so much more than just bikinis, boardies and the beach. It’s a state of mind, a way of life. It’s that feeling you get when you wake up to the sound of the ocean on a perfect summer day. It’s the warm sun on your face, the wet sand between your toes and that good mood you just can’t shake.

My love for travel and fashion has always revolved around summer. The hot sticky days and the balmy tropical nights have been a recurrent theme throughout my life for as long as I can remember. It was out of this passion that this blog This Island Life was born, where I follow summer around the globe to bring you warm-weather inspiring travel, fashion and adventures. Being able to share travel stories and photography that inspires my readers to enrich their lives through travel is truly rewarding.

I’m not just obsessed with all things summer, I’m also an advertising creative with more than 12 years agency experience. Since starting my career as a copywriter in 2005, I have worked for Sydney agencies that include Host, Clemenger, McCann Sydney, and Soap Creative. When I’m not chasing the summer, you’ll find me in Sydney working at M&C Saatchi Australia as a Senior Social Content Writer, and guest lecturing at General Assembly.
