It's a long weekend in Sydney & cant wait to get out & about. BUT, should I stay home at all I decided I will attempt to plant the chives & basil Jamie Oliver seddlings I bought the other day. This, a feat enough will hopefully be followed by also attempting to make my window sill look as chic as Julia Restoin-Roitfeld's above.

Have a good day,

Marc J plus some Aussie Heroins ..

Some more fashion week...I am not the biggest Jacobs fan..but a few pieces were lovely...it may just be the Australian patriotism that makes my love for the Sass & Bide girls so much stronger...but they really are just so creative & always a little different from the rest. I just love their sensibility.

Happy Saturday,

Glittering Jewel..

Kate Winslet is such a beauty. And when you think she cant look any more beautiful, someone fabulous decides to give her an Elizabeth Taylor-esque look surrounded by amazing jewels. Here are the results of this months V Magazine.

Metallic Accents..

I obsess over the use of metallics in a home. Whether they in the form of candlestick holders or wall art (photo 3) I just love the effect is has on the tone of the room. It can make something look glittery, edgy, modern and chic, opulent or even add a simplicity. Just so many options right?

Here are a few looks that have caught my eye...enjoy. xx

Absolutely LOVE the amazing gld table runner & gold tiffany chairs. Just stunning.

It's not just about the pops of colour anymore. I am talking about majorly screaming ORANGE in a pant or a massive aqua clutch. I love it, colour is totally up my alley. So many beautiful hues of purple & tangerine, watery blues & lemon yellows. And it's not just about clothes & accessories but about make up too...no need to remind you about the matte hot pink or orange lip trend at the moment.

being naughty while waiting for the sun...

It's always only a few days into Semptember when the weather in Sydney turns from dove grey skies to a glorious blue. The breeze lacks that bitter chill & instead has a sense of warmth to it. It's usually when I really get really excited about the seasons to come & of course what summery goodies I can purchase.

Over the last few weeks I have been extremely naughty. I FINALLY splurged on 2 luxury items I have been eyeing for months. An amazing Diane von Furstenberg Lytton Clutch & some sweet Emilio Pucci jelly peep-toe flats. My gorgeous husband secretly tracked down some Missoni Havaianas I had pining over (here). Plus a gorgeous muted gold cuff & stone necklace make for some great summer accessories!

Sunday BBQ's & mojito's only weeks away!

I love clothes, no doubt about it. But accessories are my weekness. Yes, WEEK-ness. I could buy shoes & bags very easily on a weekly basis. I do though, restrain myself from doing so by instead, purchasing pieces I absolutely adore that are of impeccable quality.

I am inlove with these new finds. Louboutin's 'Sweet Charity', amazing Prada leopard pumps. I love a punch of colour when you open your handbag especially if you are finding this gorgeous grape Prada zip wallet.

I think these Louboutin sequinned Fifi 100's are a statement all on there own.

being inspired...

There is no doubt in my mind that I am a woman of the most changeable tastes. Every other week I obsess over something a little different from the previous week. Last week it was all about bling, the more the merrier so I pulled out a sparkling ring from Swarovski & haven't taken it off since.

This week, it's Spring & my love of lemon has resurfaced. Not to mention the urge to buy an apricot skirt, some florals as always & I am absolutely besotted with the last pic...& to think I have only been interested in khaki green..but this colour is seriously revolutionising my whole take on it!!!!

I just love this look...so trans-seasonal & fresh.

White & Navy=love.  

Have a fabulous weekend
