sneaky little ducks.

This is a post I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time! These beautiful glasses came from an Australian based company (in Sydney, lovely) called Sneaking Duck, who specialise in providing the most beautiful and fashionable prescription frames for a fraction of the cost of many optometrists. Based online, their website is fresh, user-friendly, … Continue reading


winter wine.

What’s better than a roaring fireplace and a huge glass of Cabernet Merlot? Wearing the same colour on your lips, of course! I am a huge fan of lipsticks and how they can change your mood and perk up an outfit (no secrets there!). Wine lips add some vavavoom, I personally feel a little mysterious … Continue reading


week’s wisdom 03/06.

1. It’s June already….holy guacamole… 2. The fact that it’s June means it’s WINTER!! Hello layering and coats and scarves and hats and cocoon-ing ’til the cows come home. However, I do not enjoy being cold, ever. You win some, you lose some. 3. I’ve had a little spree lately (soon, soon). Trying to fill … Continue reading


hiatus over.

  Hello darlings. Firstly, apologies for the long absence, I’ve been unwell and trying to shake it off, as well as a few busy and time consuming work things going on! Anyway, I’ve missed you! Some fun things to come, winter is here and that means layers. I’m so excited! Hope you all have some … Continue reading


week’s wisdom 12/05.

1. Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing, beautiful Mama. I love you so much. xx 2. I had brunch with a couple of girlfriends yesterday at a ridiculously good cafè I’ve never been to before. If you are an Adelaide-ian, get your butt to Bar 9 on Glen Osmond. Great coffee, fabulous food, even better … Continue reading



I picked up The Vogue Factor by Kirstie Clements today on an impulse. I’d heard the story about her ‘unceremonious’ sacking from the editor-in-cheif position at Vogue Australia last year, and was intrigued. Clements has always interested me in some odd way….she seemed so untouchable. I’m thinking this will be a great read, and 23 pages … Continue reading


week’s wisdom 30/4.

1. I’ve decided to not commit to any particular day to do week’s wisdom. I’m one of those ‘let the moment take me/I’ll do it when I feel like it’. Nothing like a little spontaneity eh? 2. I’m about to embark on a fitness/getting my life together kick. I’ve just ordered some beautiful journals from … Continue reading



  “Side-bum”…..you heard me right. After the much debated “side-boob” movement, make way, its little sister, “side-bum” has moved in. We can safely say that Gwyneth is sans underpants, but has at least worn a full length gown with no split, avoiding an Anne Flash-away repeat. However, this new ‘trend’ is nothing short of screaming … Continue reading


week’s (delayed) wisdom 12/04

1. First off, apologies for the delay….I don’t know where my life/time is going at the moment. 2. I had a good ol’ fashioned shopping spree last on the weekend. It was great, I haven’t done it in a while, and I picked up some serious bargains. More on those later. 3. The new Boost … Continue reading


in my bag.

What’s in there? A rabbit? Possible. Seriously. Sometimes it’s hard to find the bottom of my bag, which is something I’m sure 98% of women can attest to. Particularly when your car keys have sifted to the bottom, you’re juggling 3 bags of groceries and just CAN’T.QUITE.GET.THEM. Anyway…here’s my first ‘in my bag’ post. This … Continue reading
