American Express Cashless Challenge

Why You Should Go Cashless

In my early days I worked as a retail sales assistant and spent an incredible amount of time with a handful of girls as we bonded over our mutual hatred of crazy and/or unreasonable customers and how much we hated folding clothes. I was confronted o ne afternoon with the discovery that someone had been…

Summer Christmas Gifts for Her

Is there anything better than being able to cross off your Christmas shopping in the one place? I use to dread having to brave the crowds that frantically try to squeeze in their last minute Christmas shopping 2 days before the city goes into holiday mode. I was able to put together this Christmas guide…

Finding Your Perfect Summer Party Outfit

A foreign concept to the majority of the world but we Australians experience a warm and balmy summer Christmas whilst the rest of the world rugs up in thermals and huge coats. December and January are the two months synonymous with endless barbeques, pool parties, beach soirees and afternoons spent on rooftops sipping cocktails with…

Style Tips for Spring Racing Carnival

It absolutely amazes me how quickly a year goes by; it felt like yesterday that I was planning my outfits for the Spring Race season 2015. Here we are again a year later, waistline incrementally larger and the candles are just starting to cost more than my cake. Let’s face it, we attend for the…

Grana Swimwear

It’s no secret that I love to collect bikinis. Heck – I’d collect stamps and dinosaur eggs if I had the time and well, if the latter existed because I’m just that weird. I’ve recently visited the Grana showroom in Hong Kong and prior to leaving Sydney I was made aware that the new swim…

Trendy Tech: Fossil Q

  The days of the tragic looking fitbits are over with the launch of the new Fossil Q smart watch in Australia. It looks like a watch, it acts like a watch but it does more than just keep me on time. It’s a smart watch that isn’t the hideous love child of tech junkies…

Grana Fitting Room Experience

  On my recent trip to Hong Kong I was extended the warm invite to revisit the team at the Grana fitting room that I had stumbled upon late last year whilst wandering through the streets. My fitting session was with the brand’s creative producer Labrini Kianidis – a fellow Australian – holler! A fun…

Revolve Sale Picks

  Considering we are only 8 days out from winter, Sydney has been uncharacteristically warm and balmy allowing for more adventurous wardrobe choices and hey; you’ll never hear me complain about warm weather – ever. I’ve got a handful of online boutiques that I have bookmarked (uh oh) and Revolve has become the go-to place…

H&M Sydney Flagship Store Opening

  As some of you may have seen throughout my social media accounts – I attended the H&M Sydney Store Opening on Thursday night at Pitt St Mall. An amazing night with Solange Knowles as the guest DJ and numerous faces in the Sydney fashion scene. I decided that instead of carrying my SLR around…

Wilderness

Sometimes the simplest looking dresses make the chicest looks in my opinion. Thank you to Katherine from Samira’s Closet for reaching out and gifting this beautiful piece to me. I have a few more looks to share with you all where I have styled certain pieces from their various “drawers”.  The idea of the drawers…
