I’ve had this blog for just over two years now and It’s been so wonderful to have my own little corner of the internet to blab on about whatever it is that I’m wearing or show you wherever it is that I’ve been. I loved it, until suddenly I didn’t.
I don’t know why exactly I fell out of love with blogging. I think I felt like I hit a wall creatively, like I wasn’t doing anything different to stand out. It’s currently Fashion Week in Sydney and so here I am, standing around all these impeccably dressed, interesting people and suddenly it’s back. The excitement and love for this atmosphere, and the reason why I started doing this in the first place.
I’m here to say sorry not only to those lovely people who told me they missed my posts, but also to myself for momentarily giving up. For some reason I shy’d away and stopped believing that I had the ability to do something different with my little space.
So I’m back. And I’m going to do it right this time.

There’s nothing I love more than fresh flowers to welcome Spring back into my life, and after receiving this beautiful bunch from a very special someone, I felt inspired to share a few of my other favourite things from the Spring season so far.
Starting with these very pink sunglasses from Zero UV. After a long winter of hibernating and exclusively wearing black, it always takes me a little while to re-introduce colour again. These fun sunnies were the perfect transitional accessory to let the brights come back into my wardrobe.
This very jewelled necklace always helps to step up a simple outfit, pair it with a plain white T-shirt and suddenly your casual outfit is ready for Friday night drinks.
Some other items that made my Spring favourites list were these two creamy lipsticks from Sephora. They not only smell like candy but they also moisturise as much as a lip balm whilst providing a subtle colour. These vanilla scented tealights which instantly make any room feel more cosy, this Flora bra from Lonely Hearts and of course, this new Chanel bag that has barely left my side since it was bought on a recent trip to Rome.
What’s making your favourites list this Spring?
After a very long flight and less than three hours sleep, I dragged myself out of my warm bed and into the freezing night.
I had heard about a place called Cappadocia in the middle of Turkey where before the day even begins, hundreds of colourful balloons float in the sky to give people the chance to see one of the most unique sunrises in the world.
Have a little look at what was one of the most special experiences of my life.
At 2.30 in the morning (If you could even call that morning) I’ll be dragging myself out of bed and into a taxi to the airport.
I decided it was time for a summer getaway and so for the next two weeks I’ll be exploring Greece, Turkey and Italy!
I will try and share some of my travels with you over the next fortnight,
but you can keep up with my adventures on Instagram!
Thanks to some very special readers, I was lucky enough to be chosen as a finalist in the Pedestrian Blogster Awards for 2014!
I was so excited to receive the nomination and it’s all thanks to you! :)

Today I bring you a short little post featuring this extremely warm, down jacket from Style Nanda.
Every single time I wear this coat I receive so many comments. Most of which sound something along the lines of – “Oh my gosh, you are so puffy!” or “That is the biggest jacket I’ve ever seen.”
Yes it’s true that when I wear this jacket I feel exceptionally puffy, but I also feel delightfully snug!
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Coat – StyleNanda
Jumper – Zara
Jeans – Rollas
Boots – The Iconic
Until next time,
Todays outfit features this Maurie and Eve sequin jumper that I bought at Sydney Fashion Weekend back in May.
You know when you see a garment from across the room and you do that determined half run to grab it before anyone else? Well this amazing jumper had that effect on me. I love that the sequins are velvet on one side, creating this luscious, matte effect, and the slick and shiny reverse side catches any light, taking this cropped jumper from casual to glamorous.
I paired this with black jeans and some patent leather heels for a sophisticated night look that is comfortable and warm for this chilly winter.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Jumper – Maurie and Eve
Jeans – Rollas
Shoes – Marco Gianni
