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
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…
A minor detour to Wittner left me the happy owner of these babies haha
White Studded Sandals.
Mumma Goose and her little ducklings !
Besties with the Sculptures.
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 !
Lights out Beautiful People

Goodnight Beautiful People,
Stay happy and I hope everyone has a wonderful work week ❤
xoxo Much Love,
Wonderful weekend <3
Crazy busy weekend, such beautiful and unforgettable moments with the people I love, and a splash of shopping !
That pretty much sums up my weekend…
Saturday morning began with a mad rush to our local “mall” as mum and I quickly tried to get some super important pre-christening errands done.
I was feeling very drained from the work week, struggling to get out of bed and get to it, so I thought I’d try and refresh myself for a big day ahead by adding a fresh pop to my outfit.
Nothing screams BRIGHT louder than a neon multi-coloured cross appliqued across your chest on a sheer pastel.
Add a neon textured scarf to it and VOILA you’re shining “bright like a diamond”.
Do we love it ?!
Limping around with my knee I just couldn’t resist ! I had to stop by at Betts,and well… we all know what happens when I stop by at Betts
YAY – Brought new shoes ! *smiles like a loser*
With my knee, back problems and all, These shoes don’t actually have much of a high heel AND are a great spring/summer style that go with pretty much anything in the wardrobe.
Love the wood and thick black strap design – Cannot wait to take these babies on a Test run.
Shopping was over – we quickly headed home so that I could get my face and hair “did” for our beautiful baby Alex’s christening and First birthday !
Half a can of hairspray and 40 minutes of makeup later, it was dress time !
It seems that when I have important functions there is always something wrong with at least one part of my body, but it’s okay no panic here, we just keep our fashion face on !
For this look I meshed formal with confidence and comfort and with that I present to you the beautiful Saskia Maxi from Zen clothing !
A gorgeous blue and yellow print, elasticated waist, gold embellished high scoop neck and halter cut.
It was just perfect for all my “body” problems.
I wanted to hide my legs,thanks to knee surgery they were uneven and slightly muscle-less, so the smartest way to do it was with a maxi !
As the dress already had a gold embellishment on the neck, Accessorising it was easier than ever.
we added one of these babies.
Gold plated waist belt.
Completely on-trend and very easy to find.
After the gold comes the nude !
Nude beginnings ?!
Add a big envelope bag made from textured material to dress it up.
and instead of cluttering the look with bangles and bracelets, I just did it simple with a tortoise-shell like Fossil watch.
and finally the shoes.
Usually I would dazzle it up with a pair of platforms but due to my knee I found the perfect pair of not-so-casual flats.
Thankyou Therapy and my Boss for helping me hunt these down !
Snakeskin detailed straps.
and a little heel so the back and knees don’t cry.
Now we were ready to go to the church for the christening.
Congratulations Little one on this very special day, you have a whole life ahead of you an we are so happy to be apart of your life – Sharing every little step you take.
After the Church comes the reception of course !
The wonderful parents and Godparents or Alex did a tremendous job at decorating.
Every Child’s heaven.
Wonderful weekend. Complete.
I’m off to bed lovers, xoxo
Goodnight all over the world, Lights out
Getting our Lipstick Pink on !
Half way through Winter and I was already over it before it even started ! ha ! So I’m dedicating this post to a POP colour – LIPSTICK PINK !
I’m a big fan of the summer colour palette’s – turquoise, orange, the citrus and neon’s, pinks and everything that’s a lovely S/S Bright !
Adding Bold and bright colours livens up any dull little black dress outfit or a casual palette look ! So I’ve decided to forget winter, dig through my wardrobe and get my Lipstick Pink on with last years Stock !
Pink Coat from Ladakh – It’s an old one from last year but If you find a great fitting bright coloured coat – BUY IT !
Lipstick by Bourjois – You can’t really see it in the picture but it’s worth a check out.
Shoes from Betts – They are from Summer at the beginning of the year so if you don’t have a pink pair yet, not to worry because it’s in the S/S colour pallet’s and will come back in again this year !
Keep your eye out for Bright coloured Coats, Lipstick, and shoes ! Those were mine…. so where’s yours ?
xxx Much Love, Yours Truly
