Happy Australia Day.

Willoughby and Co.

I love Australia Day. When you can smell the barbies firing up, hear the Triple J Hot 100 blaring and Woolies has sold Pavlova bases. It's a great day to be Australian... But then, isn't every day?

Fashion On The Court.

You'd have to be living under a rock right now not to have noticed all the tennis action going on Down Under. And if the sport doesn't interest you, some of the interesting fashion choices might (ahem, Serena Williams). So if you've got the fever, save the white for Wimbledon and take to centre court in one of these bright buys. You'll be the hottest player at the net. Sharapova, eat your heart out.

Skirt, $75.99 @ Lorna Jane

Lunar Speed 3 Tennis Shoes, $180 @ Nike

Dress, $80 @ Adidas

Featherlight Cap, $30 @ Nike

On The Couch: Set The TiVo. You Don't Want To Miss These...

Revenge (coming in February to channel seven)
Is there anything better than watching a bunch of spoiled, cashed-up Hamptonites go down one by one as their dark secrets are revealed? Didn't think so. That's exactly what happens in this hot new series about a young woman called Emily Thorne who comes back to her home in the Hamptons to seek vengeance on the people responsible for destroying her family. In a nutshell: It's pure dramatic gold.

Homeland (watch it 8.30pm Sundays on channel ten)
Claire Danes is back. And she's magnificent. Here's the gist – Claire plays Carrie Mathison, a CIA officer who believes an American marine, held captive by Al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, is now operating as a spy. Yes, it's a thinking show, but it just took home a couple of shiny Golden Globes. Oh, and President Obama is a fan and, well, if that's not enough for you, I don't know what is.
