I am majorly missing the fact that Australia doesn't really celebrate Halloween! I grew up in Scotland (where Halloween originated - not America) so we used to put so much effort dressing up to go guising ('trick-or-treating') and perform for every house in the neighborhood. I wish I had friends that would happily go to a decent dress up party with me. I think there are a few clubs in Melbourne doing something tomorrow night but I doubt many people will really make the effort.
Apparently Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom are hosting a Halloween party that will rival Heidi Klum's annual party, so I'm sure both will have an amazing guest list. I can't wait to see what all of the guests dress up as!
For everyone who is lucky enough to be in the northern hemisphere Happy Halloween!!!

Laduree is a chain of macaroon cafes around Paris. Their website is super cute! The keychains retail for around $100 - $150 I believe, but the cafe's look divine so I am definitely putting that on my 'to-do' list. Depending on how crazy I go at the shops in London, I might end my holiday with one of those dangling on the end of my keys. I think that little macron stack may be just too cute to resist!
I had a post on "Classic Watches" in my edit list for a while now and was waiting for find a few more examples before I was going to post it. This Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch was one of the ones I had already found, and then low and behold, my parents gave it to me as a graduation present! I am one lucky girl! I have hardly taken it off my wrist since I got it and will definitely be wearing it for a long time to come. The funny thing is that I almost bought a watch on Shopbop.com when the 20% sale was on, but now I am so glad I didn't. This one is a lot more understated and wearable.

As many of you are probably aware, Oliviapalermo.com is up and running. Its actually not bad and lets face it, even if it was terrible, I'd still read it. There is one thing about it that I just can't quite put my finger on, perhaps the writing seems a little.. contrived? Apparently there are other contributing writers though, its not just all Olivia... but I just keep remembering that episode of The City where Olivia and Whitney have to do that presentation at DVF and Olivia chokes. I literally read her blog with that voice inside of my head. Although to be honest, if I have heard a bloggers voice before then I can't help but read their blog with their voice narrating it all inside my head. Is that weird? Anyways, the main point is that her style is awesome and therefore this is another excuse to post a million photos of her - enjoy!
₤75 (approx $128 AUD), and I managed to score them on ASOS's 48 hour sale for ₤39.50 (approx $62 AUD) so I just couldn't say no! The way Melbourne weather is going lately, I might just be able to wear them this summer here too!

I am spending the rest of my evening watching Amelie - magnifique movie! I have three more French films to watch as I have just rediscovered the 'world cinema' section of my local Blockbuster.
