Baby sleep consultant and blogger Natalie Herman lives in Elsternwick with her husband, Anthony, and their four-year-old daughter Liele.
“I love everything about the suburb,” she says.
“The old-style architecture, the parks and the community environment.”
When not out exploring, Natalie helps families struggling with sleep deprivation through her baby sleep app.
“I wanted to create a community online that will allow parents to access information easily, especially those who can’t necessarily afford to pay for a sleep consultant,” she says.
Where do you go for a great cup of coffee?
The Pound in Elsternwick has great coffee and a nice relaxed atmosphere. I go there on the way to drop off my daughter to kindergarten.
For a special meal?
Coda in Flinders Lane is fantastic. I went for my birthday and had such a great time.
For a good night out?
I love the usual dinner and a movie combination. The Classic Cinema in Elsternwick is my favourite. It always shows really interesting movies, especially during the various festivals. It also has a great bar where you can get good snacks.
For a good book?
The Avenue Bookstore in Elsternwick. I tend to spend quite a bit of time just browsing around. The latest book that I bought was The Husband’s Secret. It was excellent.
For a new outfit?
I’d go to Country Road, Witchery or Trenery in Chadstone. I prefer to buy a few really good pieces and match them with jeans and boots.
For some peace and quiet?
