Family reviewer

Nedahl has been a journalist for two decades, spending five years as editor of Cleo magazine and has been an editor at Cosmopolitan, Good Food and the Fairfax ‘Health’ section. She’s written across various topics for a range of high-profile food, health, travel and fashion-focused titles. She’s also appeared on The Today Show, Sunrise, A Current Affair, various radio programs and has been a guest judge on Australia’s Next Top Model.

Since having two children, you’ll more likely find her at the beach with the family than at a fashion show, doing a bunch of yoga classes, or cooking healthy food while drinking a glass of wine.

She also believes pink is the new black (except when it comes to cars) and that we should ditch single-use plastics.

The Ford Escape is a five-seat, mid-sized SUV that much like all Fords , really does what it sets out to do: transport...Read more
I'll admit I was intrigued when I was booked in to review this car for families. I'd seen a few around and thought, 'that's an interesting choice of vehicle'. Because it is... interesting. It's something to look at. Coupled with the fact I've never driven a Citroen before and I couldn't wait to see...Read more

Things have been hectic to say the least. Between deciding what to cook for Christmas lunch, organising activities for the kids while we’re still at work and they’ve finished school, and trying to get everything done before the end of the year, it’s like juggling five differently weighted balls...Read more
You could have all the fancy toys in the shop when you’re two years old, but your favourite toy will always be the brown box the washing machine came in. That’s what the X-Trail is like - it has far more bells and whistles than your average cardboard box, but it’s not the swankiest thing on the...Read more
