Local Mum Jodie King

Where and how long have you lived in Sydney’s east: 27 years

How many children: 2, Zane and Scout

Favourite Park: Cenntennial. We love taking the dogs for a walk through all of the trees at the back

Favourite Beach: Coogee. It’s my local, I can walk there and I always bump into someone I know for a chat. I am also a member of the surf club so a little biased.

Favourite kid friendly cafe: Village on Cloey and St Marks

Favourite Coffee Spot: St Marks and Clodeli. St Marks is across the road from work and Lachy and the boys always have my coffee ready as I walk in –the food is excellent, fresh and made to order (and they deliver it!!)

Favourite date night place: Coogee Wine Room. Casual and the best wine list in Coogee

Favourite Local Day Out Activity: early swim at the beach, coffee and home to potter in the afternoon (with a sneaky wine on the deck)

Favourite Local Shop: Livedin Coogee. Vanessa has it all, great clothing, the best beach hats and great homewares. I always find a last minute gift here

Favourite wet weather location: movie at Randwick ritz or swim at Cook + Philip

Describe an ideal day in Sydney’s eastern suburbs for you? Early morning sand run and swim at either Bondi or Coogee, lazy breakfast and an adventure to one of the harbour beaches

What area of the east have you yet to explore much but would like to? Hermitage Foreshore walk and beaches

Work or SAHM: I own Skin Clinic Blyss on the corner of Frenchmans road and Clovelly Roads Randwick

Motherly advice : get active with your kids, travel with them, eat dinner at the table with them every night (and be in the moment – it goes so fast)
