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 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

IMG_4143

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

IMG_4150

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 !

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

Hibiscus Florals

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.

IMG_0792

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.

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.

Colour me … ORANGE !

So I know there hasn’t been much action on behalf of Summer in Australia But the Final Month of Summer will soon fade into Autumn. If you haven’t already noticed, the trends in store are shifting to Burgundies, Reds, Tangelo type shades(orange-reds), eggplant colours – deep purples, liver reds and browns, mustard yellows, pure whites, bursting Blues and as always our beautiful BLACK. It’s going to be a wonderfully colourful wardrobe this coming Fall/winter.
Having completed my fall/winter collection, I’ve started to grow a new love for these shades ( p.s the photo-shoot will be taking place this weekend so watch this space for some awesome pictures from the new FALL/WINTER 2012 RATAVOSI collection) However, one colour that has made its snug way into my wardrobe this summer would have to be ORANGE !

I was going through my wardrobe, bits and pieces of the Ladakh/Anise collections, new and old Glamour, and Sportsgirl – and noticed I have matching tops, Bags and even shoes !
Unlike Orange, My favourite colour of all time, Turquoise, has had a hard time making it  there ! I guess I’ve been FAR TOO PICKY ! Not too worry though as it’s still within the palette’s in the coming seasons !
