OOTD :: lots of leopard love

I don’t know if I’ve just seen waaaay too many episodes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey but I sure do love me some leopard print, always have, even when it was more Peggy Bundy cringe than it girl cool. And over the years I’ve mostly tried to not give in to every leopard ...

OOTD :: October wrap up.

Um, how is already the end of October? Tomorrow is Halloween, and there’s now less than eight weeks until Christmas, not that you can tell because the Sydney weather hasn’t really been playing along, with lots of cloudy days instead of Springtime warmth. Outfit-wise there were some new arrivals on my doorstep, thanks to a ...

OOTD :: 1940’s vibes

There aren’t a lot of things that can instantly brighten my day like a parcel landing at the front door, but when what’s inside the parcel is absolute perfection then even the worst day suddenly looks a whole lot better. The truth is that lately I’ve been struggling to feel happy, and while I initially ...

Beauty review:: GO-TO SKINCARE

Wanting to spoil myself for my birthday recently, I was considering splurging on a designer label bag. Thankfully it only took the sensible part of my brain about one second to decide hell no, and with skincare being my thing this past year, I decided to spoil myself with some beauty stuff instead. First thing ...

OOTD :: cheer me up buttercup

Squeezing a month of scorching hot summer into the middle of winter is great until you have to come back to cooler temperatures. And then Sydney can’t seem to get it’s act together and start acting like it’s spring, so it’s been unseasonably cool and what I really need in my life right now is ...

All the stuff.

Something happened to me recently and I still don’t even know exactly what it was. One minute I’m online shopping and trying to cram yet another new frock into an already overstuffed closet and the next the whole idea of more stuff was repellant. I’m not talking about minimalism, but seemingly out of nowhere I’ve ...

OOTD :: pretty little details

Give me black, give me a pretty cotton lace trim, and pair it with billowing sleeves with an elasticised cuff and I’m in. Since I firmly subscribe to the shopping school of show me what I really need not what I actually came in for, I couldn’t resist this black dress. Not something I need ...

OOTD :: Great jeans need great tops

When you find yourself with an amazing pair of black jeans you need some great tops to go with them. Give me ten minutes and point me towards my favourite store and you can guarantee I’ll walk out happy, and that’s exactly what I did last week. Ten minutes only though because I had Mr ...

OOTD :: When you really {don’t} need another pair of black jeans…

It can be like searching for the holy grail, looking for that perfect pair of jeans. And way more important than the pain involved in finding the perfect swimsuit because let’s face it, a good pair of jeans will get a lot more air time than any swimsuit no matter how perfect it is. Naturally, ...

OOTD :: March: lots of black with a splash of pink.

Can I just say that I can’t believe it’s April already? After a colourful and print filled summer of frocks I got to the point where I was in desperate need of some black. Black everything and anything. Just black. I just feel like me when I look more ready to attend a funeral than ...
