Beauty on Latrobe | Paddington
Founder of Beauty on Latrobe, Clare Lamberth celebrates 14 years of blissful beauty, and tells us what it’s like to be nominated for the World Luxury Spa Awards.
Take us behind the beauty...
I created Beauty on Latrobe as a beautiful and tranquil space where our guests can take a moment to care for their skin and themselves. When we feel and look our best, it extends to so many other aspects of our lives. We embrace a progressive over aggressive approach to skin therapy, treating the skin’s health first and identifying underlying causes for skin dysfunction, like gut health or barrier impairment. Once these are aligned, we’re able to achieve truly incredible results for our clients.
Who are the Beauty on Latrobe team?
Our team comprises of skin, brow, beauty, and makeup experts who thrive on building meaningful and lasting relationships with our clients, to help them achieve their skin and beauty goals. Dermal therapists Shannon and Calina have over 10 years’ experience, Scarlet is our Canadian import and customer service support genie, and I bring over 20 years industry experience.
What services do you specialise in?
Our caring team of skin therapists use a blend of the latest technologies, treatment philosophies and cosmeceutical formulations to deliver our guests happy, glowing and healthy skin. Being a full-service skin and beauty therapy clinic, we offer a wide menu of services ranging from lash lifts, waxing and spray tans, to permanent hair reduction, bespoke facials and more specialised services such as injectables, collagen induction skin needling, and skin tightening treatments.
Tell us about the business turning 14 – what have been some career highlights?
Most notably would be winning an Australian Beauty Industry Award, two times Ultraceuticals National Clinic of The Year, as well as several local Business Achiever Awards. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing though. In 2013, we lost everything to an arson attack and had to rebuild the business from scratch while I was heavily pregnant with my first child. I feel the experience of losing everything and having to rebuild and adapt to every changing situation has made both me personally, and us as a business, stronger. It’s one of the reasons we are still here today.
What is it like being nominated for the World Luxury Spa Awards?
It’s one of the most incredible moments to have our clinic recognised on the world stage! It’s our first time to take part in anything like this and we are all really excited. It’s a special way to celebrate the clinic turning 14!

Stocking the ever-elegant label straight from Italy, Imagine, you’ll also find an array of trendy accessories to pair perfectly with your next outfit. With Paddington being the perfect place to pick up a unique present, stop by Bella Botiqo for a thoughtful small gift or something for yourself.
Making a name for themselves in the beauty industry for over 25 years, Ella Baché Paddington’s destination only adds to their glowing reputation. Their skin therapists offer the latest in high performance treatments and skincare, including one of their most popular services, microneedling. This advanced treatment features electroportation, which increases the permeability of the cell membrane. In other words – faster and more effective results on signs of ageing, wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring, acne and congestion! And now, the Paddington salon is offering a limited time only microneedling experience for $159.
Frida’s Sip N’ Paint | Paddington
Whether you’re a first-time painter or Picasso in the making, this is a paint and sip class worthy of a masterpiece. Paying homage to the artistic talent that was Frida Kahlo, Frida’s Sip n’ Paint Studio is where curious creativity can be unleashed, in a luxurious and cutting-edge environment. Sure, there may be more sipping on your BYO bubbles than painting for some, but it’s the ambience and artistic energy in this luxe studio that has people coming back for more. Pair your painting with catered artisan cheese boards (the perfect creative
snack), under sparkling chandeliers and amongst lavish timber benches. Ideal for those who are looking for something other than just dinner and drinks, it’s the perfect place for a fun and exciting catch up, remembered for years to come.
Turner Property | Paddington
Before starting a degree in business, Alison Turner always knew she wanted to carve out her future in real estate. Majoring in public relations, she has always been a people person at heart – the forefront of a great real estate agent. These days, she runs her own quality-driven agency, Turner Property in Paddington. “Turner Property is a forward-thinking, full-service agency; we embrace new ideas and take an innovative approach to real estate,” she says. “Our focus remains firmly on how we can better our service and enhance our results, embracing industry innovations and new ideas for the benefit of our clientele.” Delivering the full scope of residential end-to-end sales, Turner Property specialises in Brisbane’s thriving inner city and northern suburbs, from Paddington, Bardon, Ashgrove, Auchenflower and Toowong, to Windsor, Wilston, Newmarket and Alderley. Alison and her team’s capabilities extend from marketing substantial family homes and large-scale residential projects, townhouses and apartments, through to property management.
When it comes to running your own independent agency, there are some surprising benefits. “Being an independent agency, we provide a fresh approach to the sale of your property, with the ability to tailor marketing packages to best suit. It also provides the ability to competitively structure our fees as we do not have the fees associated with a franchise. We’re able to provide a more fulfilling and cost-effective experience for the vendor,” Alison says. The result is a perfectly tailored property transaction, as well as the development of a collaborative relationship where both parties are mutually benefitted.
Amidst the spring market – or, as Alison likes to call it, the spring selling season – now is the perfect time to experience the honesty and transparency that makes up the pillars of Turner Property. On top of their agility and adaptability, which allows them to rapidly respond to changing market conditions and industry innovations, you’ll find a team with a friendly nature who will work tirelessly for you. They’d love to have you pop in to say hello!
