Just realised that my anticipation for Halloween is pretty obvious through all the spooky images I've been saving today! Unfortunately Australia doesn't celebrate it at all, not like the way I grew up with it in Britain which is so sad because it is one of my favourite days of the year! I might attempt to make a spooky cake like these and take it in to work for everyone as a treat. Thank goodness it is the weekend, hope you all have lovely plans for the finals! x

ARTICLE: Luxury Brands Must Wake Up

I read a fantastic article today on the need for luxury brands to wake up and start thinking about the ethical and environmental consequences of their operations. You can read it online here at the Guardian website.  Obviously to be wholly 'ethical and environmentally' friendly, we'd all be walking around in hemp sacks and that is unlikely to happen.. EVER (pray everyone) but I think in this day and age where trends change faster than you can blink you eye, and wardrobes are stockpiled with cheap 'throwaway' clothing, its important that we educate ourselves about what impact we're having on the environment. As Gok Kwan would say - BUY LESS, WEAR MORE! 


After realising I have just spent today saving all of these images to my work computer, Team Blonde is definitely winning. These are my top 3 girl crushes of the moment.. how can people be so beautiful - so unfair!

The face tanner worked out perfectly, I am so pleased! It looks completely natural and not too deep which is just the way I like it. Would definitely recommend the Ella Bache to anyone who wants to try sunless tanners on their face! Getting my hair done tonight and as always I am having the internal debate of natural vs. blonde. Now I have got a bit more colour in my face I am thinking of going back light blonde for summer! We shall see, we shall see! Have a beautiful Tuesday everyone, the weather in Melbourne looks beautiful already! xx

After doing some research online and reading a whole bunch of recommendations, I decided to go with the Ella Bache "Sunless Tanning" self tan for face. It smells nice and has a nice glittery "glow" when you squeeze it out of the tube. Fingers crossed that it turns out alright and I don't look like a carrot - nothing worse than seeing a girl with terrible fake tan!

On a random note - does anyone think its ridiculous that the change to 'pokie' laws in Australia and its impact on AFL/Rugby financing granted a significantly higher level of air time than women receiving the right to vote in Saudi Arabia? This actually outraged me this morning.


Here are a few random snaps from my weekend. I went to Parklife in Melbourne with a big group of friends and had the best time I have had at a festival in a long time. The weather was looking a little ominous at the start of the day but turned out perfect, and after a few drinks and dancing around I'm sure we would have been oblivious to any weather conditions Melbourne could have thrown at us. The highlights of the day were DJ's Diplo and Mylo, and then randomly finding YumCha dumplings to snack on - way better than usual festival food selection! I wore a MinkPink floral dress which is featured in their latest campaign with a loosely knitted Cheap Monday black sweater, biker boots and my Wayfarers. Sunday was a perfect end to the weekend - breakfast and coffee with friends, and the rest of the day on the couch watching Suits with the weekend Financial Review & Vogue.

Once again, I am a terrible blogger! In my defense, I've had a bit of a horrible week including someone crashing in to my car, burning the inside of my wrist on a sandwich press at work and managing to get a virus on my work computer and losing everything.. oops!  I had so many photos saved to post as well, but on the bright side, its meant I've been a bit more productive at work so not all bad! They say bad luck comes in threes so lets hope thats the end of it!

The first image is from blogger Ulrikke Lund, one of my all time favourite bloggers - her outfits are amazing, and as she is same height and build as me so its always nice to see how petite girls work trends.

How cool are the framed shopping bags in the wardrobe image? I might have to start holding on to the bags of all my important purchases and do that - such personal wall art! Also, does anyone have any good recommendations for face self-tanners? I'm losing my latest European glow and need something easy to apply and preferable one that won't make me look like an oompa loompa!

Just made me a little bit excited for New Years in Paris!
Remind me to pack my camel Valentino coat.

I don't understand how someone can be so beautiful.

Does anyone know where these pants are from? I think they are amazing! Unfortunately it was in a magazine editorial (Vogue Australia I think) advertising Tiffany's so none of the clothes were listed. I need them in my life!

In love with this tumblr I just came across this morning, Black and White Fashion World. I could go on forever re-posting images! Isn't it funny how turning an image in to black and white can make it suddenly seem more glam?
