Happy Hump Day Beautiful people ! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great start to the week. I must say, I’m so relieved there are only 2 more days left until the next weekend. There is just so much happening … Continue reading

Have you been “TEMT”ed ??
If you answered no – then seriously, TEMT yourself.
These days there so much pressure on women to look good, That sometimes we get coaxed into sticking to the big brands because “everyone will be there” and “it’s completely unacceptable to wear something commercial” or that “I can’t be spotted in a no-name…EVA”. Well, a confession – I did it, and I have been doing it for awhile now.
Because sometimes it is okay to buy something for a quarter of the price and feel happy when you can throw it away without worrying about dry-cleaning, or cringing at the fact that you spent so much money for something you knew you would only wear once.
My sister-in-law and I recently visited our Local TEMT store in desperate need for some fashionable, amazing pieces that were suitable for both a day and night time look. Browsing through the countless racks in the store, it honestly didn’t take long for us to pick something not only suitable for the occasion, but also something that was going to comfortable enough to wear ( and perhaps keep in the wardrobe for a second wear). I must say I was impressed with what was available for as little as $29.95.
For my international friends, who haven’t heard of Temt – you can compare it to your Forever 21, except slightly smaller. Temt is a fast fashion company that offers on-trend, affordable pieces for any occasion. they currently don’t have an online store available, however, you can view their most recent campaign by clicking here. They have also got Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Forever new Shoes – so comfy !
A gorgeous print !
The lines in this dress worked perfectly for my body.
the thicker lines accentuated whereas the thinner lines slimmed down.
They were also fighting with the vertical pleats in the skirt so that worked perfectly in my favour.
A nice matte shade of red/orange by “MAC cosmetics”
I chose a Top knot bun because there is also so much going on at the top of this garment. However Loose curls would have looked gorgeous too.
The cutest little clutch from “Colette accessories”
Also matte, reptile skin textured.
China Glaze Nails – “Pool Party”
I am in love with the colour right now.
It is very bright and in-your-face – perfect for nicely manicured nails.
and off we go…
xoxo 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
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 !

Sometimes when the weather is absolutely horrible and depressing I open up my closet, sit in it for awhile and then pick out the most brightest or boldest item I have.
Something so different to the weather outside just to lift up the mood a little.
The Star of today’s post is a very summery,very fresh, batwing/kimono-sleeve Shirt.
I Picked up this beauty when my friend from Melbourne was down to visit.
We were casually having dinner at Darling Harbour when the sight of these beautiful Hibiscus printed tops and skirts captured our attention (and of course it was an impulse buy).
Now Every time I look at it I think of her and how we had such a great catch up in such a short amount of time ! ❤ you Bianca
Orange and white hibiscus flowers printed on a peach base. Perfect for Spring/Summer
For those of you who are enjoying Spring/Summer now (unlike us) a floral printed shirt like this is definitely a must-have !
Two reasons – 1 is that you can dress it up and make it very day to night as you can wear it buttoned up with a statement necklace – something gold and chunky.
2 is that you can unbutton it like in the picture, for an everyday casual look.
Just add a plain camisole underneath and a loose single pendant necklace.
If it gets a little chilli you can even add a brown scarf.
or even a lightweight metallic thread one.
click on the link to purchase.
Voila ! All set for the day ahead !
For accessories, as mentioned you can play with the orange, pinks, ivory browns and white palette’s – always fun to play with pastels. As well as mixing it up with little splashes of gold or antique gold.
Something new-vintage would look great with this like a small boxy bag, any shade of brown leather or like I have added a nice orange off-the-shoulder bag.
Click on the links to purchase.
something for night…
something for the day…
The brand of the Shirt is “Sweet Girl” unfortunately I couldn’t find you an online link guys ! Sorry !

Blog Contributors | Get on Trend for 2013
Hello my lovely subscribers !
I know the weather today is crap, depressing and maybe a little scary for some but well let’s try and look at the positives’ today – At least you can spend some time lounging around the house and reading my blog right ! hahaha
Every now and then I allow contributor posts on my blog, The one I have for you today has been written by Catherine Lavinia, a freelancer in advertising and marketing. So before I leave you to this post wherever you are in the world today, I hope you’re having a safe yet fun Saturday !
xxxx Much Love, Rhaya
Get on-trend for 2013 !
While high fashion may do well on the start of year catwalks, predicting which will be the key looks to filter down to the high street can be difficult. Surprisingly, popular looks from recent seasons include the Peplum, which exploded onto the high street in 2011 and has not lost any momentum as we passed through 2012. In terms of shoes, creepers and the more elegant creeper style platforms have been massive on the streets as fashion continues to reclaim the sixties via the nineties.
oo la la ! We LOVE peplum !
So what’s going to be big this year?
Let’s find out what the key predictions are for 2013:
Paisley might be the only print to be seen in for 2013. Try a paisley-print cotton sundress for when the weather warms up, or a slick shirt teamed with mannish trousers to work two trends at once.
Don’t panic: if paisley isn’t your thing, you can choose between geometric or floral prints to stay on trend. Fashion icons should be Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton (as well as the women of Mad Men) and look out for citrus colour prints for the ultimate homage to sixties fashion.
Floor-length gowns are going to be big this year and creating an elegant silhouette is going to be key. This season’s dresses have to go all the way down to the ground. Look out for kimono-style gowns for the ultimate in opulence.
Oh my Goth! Goth continues to be influential this year but don’t let it get you down. Colours are black and white, obviously, and choose leather to maximise the 50 Shades of Grey influence.
Let’s go on a space odyssey as all things futuristic and sci-fi enter our collective fashion consciousness. Think metallic, still trending from 2012,Ziggy Stardust, glitter, and try some silver shades for you footwear.
Well I hope that covered it for you all and has inspired more wardrobe fun and style for ‘13

Father’s Day, Melbourne Trip , Stylist’s Outfits, 4 things I’d never leave the house without and Many More !!!
Hello Beautiful people I’m baaaaaaaAACCCKKKK !!
Now where did I leave you guys ? I think it was fathers day right ?
Well I hope everyone had a great Father’s day, because I know I sure did !
It was such a beautiful warm sunny day, so my father and I adventured out to the Windsor markets along with my brother and his wife.
Beautiful vintage clothing, quaint finds, farm fresh fruit and vegies, spices, wooden dollhouses, freshly baked breads and sweets – it was like a town of it’s own – very different to the Sydney City. We then set out for a lovely walk down by the Hawkesbury River.
I love going to markets, no mater what location they are in. It’s a good way to see unique things, young talents, or even a smaller dose of something regular !
My favourite boutique from the Windsor markets was this cute vintage-style clothing stall called Indi Rose.
Here’s a little snap
Not having quite a market fix yet – we head back to Rouse Hill Town Centre for their monthly Sydney Boutique Markets.
The cutest baby clothing stalls, inspirations hard goods, and plenty of fashion and accessories !
One of my favourites was this really cool accessories stall – Doury accessories !
Now when I first saw the pieces laid out on the stalls tables, besides thinking my goodness how elaborate and extravagant, I thought my goodness that would be so heavy !
As I reached down to pick it up, it was the complete opposite ! The pieces were in fact ,very lightweight, and very soft laser cut leather !!
So creative !
such pretty designs !
Ranging from $20 – $95 why not splurge on something innovative like this next time you need to purchase a new accessory !
To visit her the website simply click this link : http://www.doury.com.au/
or email email@example.com for any orders and enquiries.
Now if you’d like to know where they’ll be in the coming month here is a list of their locations.

MELBOURNE TRIP ❤
So as you know, I recently went to Melbourne to sort out some business, visit some friends, retail therapy and of course SPRING FASHION WEEK.
The night before Melbourne was hectic, I had a lot of design work to do – Top secret project ❤
and I only really finished everything and cleaning up by about 11.
I guess packing wasn’t so hard when I had actually literally bought my outfit a MONTH AGO ! hahaha
I’m not even kidding, the jacket I wore, I saw it, picked it up and immediately thought, this is EXACTLY what I’ll wear to Fashion week … and about 5 minutes later, I swiped my card and the machine spat out my receipt – BRILLIANT !
Mum and I arrived Monday morning to the airport and just as checked in for our flight and went passed the security I finally saw where Victoria’s Secret in Australia had been set-up !
For those of you outside Australia, in the US, who have Victoria’s Secret in just about every mall… you are so damn lucky !!
I ran in expecting to go nuts at all the bra’s on my WANT list… and no bras …. everything but the bra’s.
Body mists and lotions, sure ! handbags, wallets and sunnies, yerp ! even underwear.. in fact everything but the bra’s…
Though I must say it is still pretty good for those ( like me ) who need a quick fix and replacement every now and then !
❤ ❤ ❤
Retail Therapy and Fashion show time !!
So I have been quite impatiently waiting for Topshop to open in Sydney, and well the most exciting part of the morning was heading down to Melbourne’s Chapel Street for some awesome Retail Therapy.
Top shop had a great range of studded/spiked bags, shoes, boots and just really damn good collections all over the store – I went crazy when i walked in actually, because I kept seeing things I liked and didn’t know whether to start from the left, the right or what.. blaaaaa !
I actually really liked the accessories range that top shop had and I bought myself a beautiful new cuff ❤
Surprisingly I didn’t buy much though, Oh I’m so proud of myself – I really am ! hahaha I usually come back with double luggage and plenty of carry on !
OH and there were so many trends I saw !
1 – the neon’s, were still in,
2 – the pastels not far behind them.
3 – Mullet- high/low tops and dresses,
4 – Floral printed Jackets, tops, dresses, and Denim and reflective graphic print tees in bold bright colours.
5 – *Embellished collars*,
6 – soft summer relaxed knits and
7 – STUDS, SPIKES AND MORE STUDS&SPIKES !…
[[and guess what my new pair of shoes have on them… SPIKES – ohh yeahhhh !!! ( Trend spikes posts coming soon )]]
Right opposite Topshop, was something a little more familiar.
URBAN by Target.
Urban by Target is Target’s new smaller store format, that gives city shoppers access to a specifically tailored selection of Target’s great style.
It’s located at 500 Chapel Street, Melbourne so why not head by for the best of Target’s fashionable ladies wear, footwear, accessories, intimate apparel, kids wear and babywear, as well as a small range of menswear.
…and I chose to play dress-ups ❤
Grazia’s range for Hot options – A beautiful light turquoise sheer shirt with contrasting White collar,and tab. For more on-trend detail there was studs on the collar – I LOVED IT !
If you would like to purchase this top or would like to view it in colour simply click here
There was also this super-cute Boucle turquoise and gold dress by Grazia !
I absolutely loved this one as you can easily dress it up !
It comes with a gold belt, so you can chuck on a pair of gold heels or pastel colour blocked wedges and a matching bag and off you go. or you can dress it down with some sandals and a loose knit cardigan. It’s perfect for summer !It kind of reminds me of a classy summer lunch dress ❤
to purchase this dress simply click here
Before I even tried this dress on, I was completely sold !
It’s the perfect lightweight summer dress !
You can dress it up with some black or coloured wedges. The trick with picking what colours to match it with lies solely in the colours of the dress. You can never go wrong with you stick with hues within the print. For example with this dress, A turquoise, or purple even a nice pink would have matched perfectly if you didn’t ant to stick to the black that was already a given by the included belt !
After strolling and shopping down Chapel Street we then headed to a secret location – the MDP Jewels den to check out Matthew Pourhags new range of Fashion jewellery and accessories.
Rose gold finds ❤
lots of colourful necklaces and unique earrings and necklaces.
AND he recently launched his new add-on … *Clothing * hooraaa
and guess who was the first to try on and buy… oh yeah..
me = ]
I absolutely loved this top from the second I laid eyes on it !
It’s a chic, classic black and white top.
My favourite – with a collar, an embellished black collar with metal plates !
It also has shoulder pads for some extra Ooomph ladies AND The back is longer than the front.
I love this style of mullet top not only because it has my favourite – an embellished/collar but because the length of the shorter front isn’t a ridiculous midriff length.
It’s a nice balanced mullet ( so if you’re conscious of that ass ladies– this is the top to buy ! )
It’s selling for $79.95 with only a few sizes left guys, so if you like it – get in quick and BUY IT.
Here’s the DEETS !
WHERE : facebook.com/MDPjewels

After all that shopping, we had to head home and it was time to put or fashion week outfits on and strut out !
Here’s our shots from fashion week !
The next nine shots are from couturing.com – thought I’d chase up some non-blurry frontal shots.

FINALLY TIME FOR OUTFIT 13 !
FLORAL BLAZER | SO EXCITING !
Floral Print Blazers are SO HOT RIGHT NOW !!!!!
So lately I have been getting into buying blazers, no not just your plain ones but florals, neons and anything that stands out !
I mentioned earlier in the post that I had chosen my outfit – right well this is that beautiful blazer I was rambling on and on about !
It is coincidently from the Grazia range at Target. IT is a gorgeous tailored fit with a single breasted design and contrasting black collar and welt pockets.
This blazer is the highlight of the beginning of MY SPRING !
There are so many colours within the pattern that is is actually so easy to match things to it.
Turquoise, lime, fuchsia, purple, mint, yellow ! all of which are so easy to find and are available in pretty much any store !
With styling this outfit, I chose black bottoms because we all know how much I hate choosing/buying/trying on bottoms and comfortable black summer wedge heels.
I was originally going to wear a plain black top underneath but instead decided to go with my “out there” option i had brought along from sydney.
My plain lime green top.
I chose this top because it contrasted well with the black and crazy floral pattern and it was also easy to accessorise, as you can see I have put on my long orange beaded necklace.
The lime green top is actually quite easy to find – just have a look at any of the stores/boutiques in the shopping centre.
It’s quite on trend and in demand so someone has got to have one that tickles your fancy.
If you still can’t find one – head over to Supre’, Bardot, Sports girl or Target.
To purchase this Blazer simply click here
I also wore my new coral pink coloured lipstick = ]
Here are Bianca and I showing off our pink shades – oh yeahhhh !
Just being all classy and that !
❤ you bianxxx
Mum and I with an elephant !
There were so many of them around the City so we though why not ?!
and well… we pretty much head home for some nice dessert and again to pack to be off in the morning !
Bye Bye Melbourne – We will be back again soon
5 Things I never leave the house without !
So the past few years I’ve realised that these 4 items NEVER EVER come out of my back– even when I’m switching bags – they come along !!
and no I’m not talking about your phone, makeup, your wallet, or them keys !
Here’s my FOUR !
# 1 – Band-Aid Tough Strips – fabric sterile strips |
why ? | Because you never know which part of your shoe will annoy you AND the normal plastic Band-Aids don’t do anything for you, they easily come off making your sore worse !
I always apply mine the second I put my foot in my shoe – and wherever feels annoying I BANDAID IT – oh yeahh…
#2 – Mints – Because sometimes we don’t know what we’ll have to eat and who we’ll have to meet up with afterwards !
#3 Hand Sanitiser – Because you never know what you’re going to have to touch ! [yes I’m a massive germ-a-phobe]
#4 Body wipes – Because you may need to refresh after a long day
TRUST ME – I’m totally NOT crazy = ]
So last night I went to Vogue’s Fashion night out !
It was a great night – plenty of music and Dj’s, food and drinks, Topless models, lots of fashion and great sales as well as some famous faces!!
Unfortunately my battery went flat so I don’t have any pictures at all besides this one from Sports girl !
I absolutely loved this when I saw it ! So cute and the perfect dog for the Pastel Trend ha ha !
The weather was beautiful, nice and warm and not too much wind either and that brings me to my outfit
A quick little Stylist’s outfit 12 – casual yet pretty !
I actually wore this dress to Vogue’s fashion night out last night with a black cardigan and sandals.
( Sorry – I don’t have full body shots because my battery ran out – boo hoo!)
As you can see, that’s my loose knit cardigan – perfect for summer. It’s very lightweight which means that if it gets even hotter you don’t have to take it off and carry it around. It actually kept me even cooler and it was quite hot in the city yesterday.
I’ve also worn my Fuchsia Bourgeois lipstick with this outfit.
for shoes, a comfortable pair of sandals or flats.
For a bag – I took my new black and white tote that I also bought from the Urban store.
It also comes in another colour way – beige, coral and white.
to purchase colour way 1 click here (black)

Let Fashion Show Your Beautiful Side
Women are bombarded everyday with slick magazine covers of perfect women looking stunning in today’s fashions. The reality is that most of these women have the same flaws as everyday woman. Today, you can learn to love your body and feel confident and beautiful with the right clothes and accessories whether you’re tall or short, skinny or curvy. Beauty comes in all sizes, colours, and shapes!
Pastels, bright colours, bold, and whimsical prints are the highlights of this summer’s fashion trends. Not to be ignored is the breezy and spunky bohemian look with a chic flair. Choosing a great handbag and the right women’s shoes will smooth out that great outfit. A great outfit will make you feel confident and ready to take on the world. Feeling confident should be a 2012 summer movement allowing all women to bring out their inner fashionista for the world to see.
Neon colours are also going to be all the rage. These fun colours along with a fabulous pair of shoes to match are sure to make you feel upbeat and outgoing. Don’t be afraid to be daring and bold with a little colour this summer. Nudes and beiges are fabulous and soft, but step out of the box and show summer what you’re made of.
One of this summer’s hottest colours is bright orange! If you’re a curvy woman, choosing a slightly tailored dress or pant suit in a soft pastel or small floral print will give you a slimmed look. Show the world that you can still wear orange by adding an orange handbag and heels. You will love how you feel with some bold colour accents. Accents make an outfit and you make it absolutely gorgeous!
Maxi dresses are fantastic for women of all sizes. These flirty, long, flowing dresses will make you feel both comfortable and chic. Large, soft floral prints compliment any figure. Choose a smaller handbag and low heels that will keep your look breezy and carefree.
Have fun this summer and step out of your comfort zone by trying something new and trendy. When you feel beautiful, you project that confidence onto others and they will see your beauty too. Step it up a notch with fun prints and bold colours. When you look good, you feel good, but when you look great, there’s nothing you can’t do. The new you is waiting, so lets show her off to summer!
