Boohoo for Christmas !! The fashionable, Happy kind of Boohoo <3

Hello Beautiful People !

It’s the second last day of 2013 and I couldn’t be more happier to be here in LA, California spending time with my family.

The weather here is actually quite pleasant – Crisp mornings, warm days and slightly chili evenings. The transeasonal wardrobe totally works here !!

Speaking of Wardrobes, I know just the perfect retailer for those trend driven, affordable fashion-finds this month.

Boohoo !!

If you haven’t already heard of them, They are a UK based online retailer of affordable fashion who have been trading here in Australia for some time now.

Shipping is quick and inexpensive (standard delivery to Australia is free) and their Christmas 2013/14 lookbook is heavy with romantic colours and elegant patterns perfect for the Australian Summertime.

Here are some highlights…

Moroccan Sands

The Moroccan Sands range is rich with vibrant colour, bold prints and bohemian fabrics. Perfect for both walking on the beach and grabbing a drink in the nearest bar, Moroccan Sands infuses vintage class with modern patterns making the perfect collection for an ultra stylish summer trend.

Desert Rose

The Desert Rose collection is all about clashing textures in the most feminine of ways. Metallic and silk, lace and crochet, ruffles; anything goes when it comes to Desert Rose. Keeping the colours light, bright and sandy ensures that this collection is ideal for Christmas and New Year celebrations whilst maintaining an incredibly edgy aesthetic.

Rio De Jeniro

Inspired by the carnivals of Rio, the De Janeiro collection celebrates the life and soul of Brazil. Parrot inspired colours and big clashing prints come together to bring a collection of outfits ready to party in. With hues of luscious lemon, zesty lime and hot coral the De Janeiro range will make you the life and soul of the party.

Which is your favourite boohoo style?

Good things come in twos ! D.I.Y Christmas Gift Ideas, Willow Boutique and Luka Candles.

People often say that good things come in threes…

Well I beg to differ… because this blog post is all about Twos.

# Two New favourite finds

# Two very Easy Christmas D.I.Y gift ideas


# Two new jewellery pieces.



Happy Monday Everyone !


On the weekend My sister-in-law and I got sucked into the busy shopping scene at our local markets.

We do swear though, we were only there to buy lunch and get out.

As we caught a glimpse of these two stalls we just couldn’t resist, and I honestly think they are too good to miss which is why I am sharing them with you.


> Our first New favourite find was Willow Boutique. <

This small boutique had the most adorable handmade gifts for Children, Especially Baby boys !


The cutest bow ties with some really beautifully boyish prints fit for any little monkey !


How clever that the bow ties clip onto the rompers !

Making it almost effortless for the Little man to look Classy.

A quick and easy job for any mother.


They also had a wide variety of bibs, blankets and dummy chains.


If you like what you see, I know my sister-in-law and I definitely did, Then why not visit them at the Rouse Hill markets or better yet why not like their page on Facebook.


If you are looking for any gift ideas for a new born then Willow Boutique would be the perfect stop for any Mum and bub.




> Our second Favourite find was Luka Candles! <


Hand poured Candles with delicious scents.

I’m really loving all these uniquely scented candles that are trending in the markets right now. I think Luka Candles has been my favourite so far.

Reasonably Priced and with so many scents to choose from, there is one suitable for all of us.


Love the packaging !

Super Shabby !


They have also got some really great beach inspired decorations if you’re looking for a last minute Christmas gift !

Don’t Forget to like them on Facebook.




>Moving onto our Two Very Easy D.I.Y Christmas Gift Ideas<


A Santa Sleigh made with Lollies.

A great idea for either Children or your colleagues at work.

Something creative and Edible… Too perfect !


For the lollies in this particular sleigh we have bought Normal Sized Candy Canes and a few boxes of Cadbury Favourites Chocolates.



Personalised Mugs !…

Fill with lollies of course and decorated.


My mother Works in a retirement village so she wanted to do something a little more personal for the residents.

If this sounds more like something you want to do, You can get these really cool Pens from Either Spotlight/Lincraft or any haberdashery store.

They are called UNI pens, But make sure you get the right one – just ask the staff you want something to write on mugs to set.

All you have to do is Draw your design on the mug, When you are finished set your oven to 160 degrees Celsius, pop them in there for half an hour.

Voila – Mug is done and Pen ink has set!

BECAREFUL not to burn yourself – Leave the mugs to cool for at least an hour.


When the cup has cooled, Fill it up with desired lollies – preferably wrapped ones.

Wrap it up with some cellophane and decorate with ribbons and bows.





> And Finally we come to our two new jewellery pieces. <

I don’t really buy much commercial jewellery but these two were just too cute to resist !


Trying on all the rings and jewellery at Colette by Colette Hayman.


and what do you know… It’s purchased !


Well I hope Everyone has a had a great Monday and that this post helped you in some way Winking smile

Let me know how you go !



I’m off to Watch some Marilyn Monroe !


xxxx Much Love,

It’s a Chinese Gardens Kind of weekend – Happy two years Boo !

And yet another weekend has almost come to an end !! Can I just say, this year has gone by so quickly, I still can’t believe that it is nearly Christmas !!

Two Weeks ago my boyfriend and I went on an adventure in the very busy Sydney CBD.

We had a very beautiful time together, especially since it was a little celebration for not only my belated birthday but also our two years together.

Scroll on down and see the pictures from the day.

I had such a great time shooting away at the Chinese gardens. It was so green, so peaceful and definitely relaxing.

Now before we get stuck into the adventure, Let’s first look at the outfit shall we !

Since it was one of those “bi-polar” weather days – I literally had to change my outfit 12 times.

That is seriously how many times the weather changed over 2 hours, before Rubick arrived !

It’s okay though, I didn’t stroll out naked, eventually got myself together !


I have so many clothes in my wardrobe/every nook of the house that there are some pieces I don’t get to wear for at least a year.

I’m not kidding, everything is in queue here… And I don’t think you’d believe me if you heard me screaming “ BUT I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR”, which usually happens at least once or twice a month give or take the kind of events included. hahaha !



My Tiffany bow around my neck.

Shirt from Glassons – A present from my Boyfriends sister last Christmas.

Prints and Styles like this are usually very popular in commercial/department stores and boutiques during Spring/Summer.


Pink lips with this outfit ? YES, Why not !

A little trick I have been using lately with my lip colour is just using lip liner.

I first outline my lip, colour it in then dab. When I am about to head out the door, I go over it  once more and put a layer of sticky gloss over it.

This makes it last so much longer – Try it !


Braided Hair…Don’t Care.


My lovely Combat boots from Betts.

Love this style to bits as you can roll them up and lace them as I have done above or simply fold them down and wear them as an ankle boot style.

Either way, They are super comfy, especially if we are roaming around on a mission !

Outfit is done – and as you can see I am wearing my very comfy Black essential legging pant.

It never lets me down !

If you’re looking for a good thick Ponte pair of leggings and are new to the blog. Please don’t hesitate to contact me and ask me where to purchase, or just scroll by my blog. I’ve mentioned it in many posts before x




And so our adventure in the city begins…


We be walking Winking smile


He absolutely hates car park shots, but hey.. look who’s slightly smiling hahaha


Random little dungeons in the alleyways of Sydney.


99 birdcages but no birds…

I love this birdcage scene !


#HowtobeaTourist … I am totally practicing for my next holiday haha


Next stop was QVB


And it wouldn’t be Christmas without all of this.

Christmas decorations, tinsel and bling, Chocolate stalls and mistletoe.

How on Earth does on just casually walk past without wanting to buy anything ! It is seriously such a tease hahaha


So we kind of got hungry…ended up at Darling Harbours Blue fish Restaurant.


The food was so good, we devoured it very quickly, and I only got a chance to take a photo of my very delicious, very refreshing watermelon lychee cocktail. Sorry Guys !


Continuing our Journey towards Tumbalong park.



The suns out, The water fountains are on – I love that sound.



Last Stop, Chinese Gardens..





Secret Little Pathways








Spot The Difference…

So my feet got a little hot because Little miss Bi-polar-weather decided to get warmer…

Bye Bye City – We had a great day.



When I got home though, The family wanted to have a Mexican Dinner date !

Looks like we weren’t going to call it a night yet !!


Mad Mex – Just the way we like it !



It’s Christmas EVERYWHERE.

Mum and Dad are so cute !


The Best Parents EVA !



Family is the most important thing,

A bond so unbreakable with people who will always be there for you no matter what.

Sometimes we don’t realise how special the things we have are until they are gone.

Make the most of life together and always be honest about who you are.

Reach out to a loved one this Christmas – New Years is around the corner and so are new beginnings !


Well I’m off to prepare for the work week !
