Locally Sourced

Three occurrences are responsible for this post 1. I spent a weekend recently at North Stradbroke Isalnd, aka paradise and while I was walking along one of the gorgeous beaches I came across a drfit of pumice stone. Hey presto – nature’s exfoliater. I picked some up and took it home with me. 2. I fell in love with an olive…

Peasant and Public

Two great restaurants on two different nights. You may have picked this up from the vastly different weather conditions we are dressed for. B enjoyed a night of simple and delicious Spanish tapas at Peasant, while A sampled the menu at uber cool Public (Hawaiian potato curry with fresh coconut and lychees… er mer gerd!!). We couldn’t finish this post without…

Gala on the Green

I am 99% confident that this dress is up in my top 3 when it comes to favourites in my wardrobe. Being that it is not your every day dress, it was great to have a new occasion to get frocked up, the last being my 21st. The Gala on the Green Charity Ball’s theme this year was fire and ice – not sure…

Friday Infatuation

It has been forever since we put up a Friday Infatuation post but after watching a re-run of the final of one of our obsession shows, The Fashion Fund (them Rag and Bone boys – too, too funny) we decided to pay tribute to the third runner up, Mr Marc Alary. His whimsical and remarkably beautiful jewellery was certainly worthy of a place…

The Diva’s Wardrobe

Held a couple of times a year, this event unites divas with enviable wardrobes with those suffering wardrobe envy – a marriage made in heaven. We had heard about it through Instagram and Facebook posts bragging of legendary hauls but were always otherwise engaged… until last Sunday. We saw from Fashionista Events (register for updates in your city!) that the Diva’s Wardrobe was planned, so we saved the date…

Run to Paradise

That’s exactly what I did a couple of months ago when I escaped Brisbane for 3.5 weeks and visited this beautiful country. My only regret is that we didn’t extend it and explore the North part of Thailand. Instead we visited Bangkok, Phuket, Railay Bay and Phi Phi Island. It’s taken me an awfully long time to actually sort through…

Post-Crop Care

Not too long ago, A made the decision to go under the scissors, much to hairdresser George’s delight. In fact, the words ‘I think it’s time for a change’ had barely been uttered before he unceremoniously sliced a foot off her ponytail. Change it is, then. Like all good surgeons/hairdressers, George provided some post-crop care instructions Keep it clean Keep it hydrated I…

One Last SF post at One Market

We out for dinner one night to a great San Francisco restaurant called One Market. The food was great, the wine was great and views of the Bay Bridge were great! I also got to debut my new Kate Spade (Aquazurra imitation *cough*) heels. Soon to become mine and B’s new obsession because of the perfect low heel height that…
