Weekend Edit: Style #11

weekend-edit-11Hello lovelies, It’s the end of another week and it’s also the end of my stay in Brisbane. Dylan and I are finally moving back to Sydney! Woohoo! We leave on Monday and to say it’s been a hectic past month is an understatement. We’re both utterly exhausted but just need to get over the final hurdle; cleaning our apartment and handing over the keys. For anyone who rents in Australia this part is a massive pain in the arse – yeah, I have issues with real estate agents (long story). With everything packed up and already in Sydney I thought I’d squeeze in one last post this week before we head down.

One thing I’m looking forward to most in Sydney is the cooler climate; I’m a winter/autumn girl at heart and can’t wait to dig out my wooly jumpers and coats. I managed to condense my wardrobe down to a quarter of it’s size during our pack-up (yes really) so would love to add a few neutral pieces to my almost non-existent wardrobe. Strangely it’s quite satisfying getting rid of everything and starting a fresh. While it’s unlikely I will add any of these pieces (my mac died this morning and probably can’t be salvaged, grrr) it’s nice to get a little inspired.

I’m not sure what my schedule will be like regarding posts next week (as we will be staying with family) but things will return to some kind of normality soon. Apologies if I haven’t been able to visit your blog and comment like I normally do, but I hope you all understand that it’s just the transition process and nothing more.

For now thanks for your support, have an amazing weekend and take care!

Weekend Edit: Style #9

weekend-edit-9Hello lovelies, It’s my favourite time of the week again and as per usual I’m excited and relieved the weekend is here – who’s with me? Without sounding like a beat up record my week has been pretty hectic mostly with work and packing (the story of my life it seems). I also celebrated my birthday this week but kept it pretty low key. I picked up lots of nice goodies, some of which I will share with you in the coming weeks. Of course I’d love any of the above in case anyone was feeling generous, ha!

What’s everyone up to this weekend? Anyone else a fellow cancerian and celebrating their birthday this month? Let me know in the comments below.

Stay safe and have a blast everyone!

Weekend Edit: Style #8

weekend-edit-8Just a quick post to share a few things that have caught my eye this week. I’ve taken inspiration from Jessie Bush’s very black/minimal outfit (I adore her style). Simple jewels feature as per usual, a gorgeous black crop and of course a bag I’ve been lusting over for what feels like forever – The Pashli Mini.

What is everyone up to this weekend? I still have a tonne of packing to do and I have a few people coming to look at a few furniture pieces I’m selling. If the weather is nice I may even go for a bush walk but we’ll see. I need to take some time out and get a good dose of nature. My zen-o-meter is flailing. Enjoy whatever you end up doing and have an amazing and restful weekend!

Weekend Edit: Style #6 (the chatty edition)

weekend-edit-6Hello Friday – you made it! Anyone else have a tough week? Unfortunately no amount of makeup is going to camouflage the dark circles under my eyes, but a long weekend sure is going to help, at least in terms of catching up on sleep. Honestly, I feel like I’ve been running from pillar to post lately so I’m going to completely switch off from the things I should be doing and just face plant on my bed, or sofa (heck, anything horizontal and preferably soft).

So what’s been going on I hear you ask. Well I can finally share with you that Dylan and I will be moving back to Sydney – Yipee! Yep no windup, I don’t beat around the bush. It’s a good thing we both like mixing things up, as there’s so much organising to do. I think trying to coordinate everything is what I’m find really daunting, especially now that we’re planning a wedding. Plus we’ve both accumulated a lot of stuff over the 4 1/2 years we’ve lived in Brisbane and to make matters worse we need to find a place to move to and then there’s the issue of work as well. I’m sure things will be fine but I’m already preparing for a pretty thrifty few weeks – so expect to see a lot of wish lists.

Speaking of wishlists I’d love to add all any of the above to my wardrobe. For those of you who don’t live in Australia, it’s been a very slow start to winter. I could literally get away with wearing my summer wardrobe and not feel cold in the slightest. Those Karen Walker sunnies would go down a treat. If only money grew on trees, or if only I had a dollar every time I heard someone say that …

Oh onto other news, Dylan and I finally picked out our wedding bands. Yes we’ve been feeling pretty spendy lately! They’re being custom made, so we’re going to have to wait a while till we get them. That’s about the only planning we’ve really done, now that we’ve decided to move to Sydney.

Anyway enough about me, how are you all feeling? What’s been going on? Made any exciting purchases lately? Please share in the comments below. i love reading and responding to your comments.

I’ll catch you next week lovelies…  bed beckons. Enjoy your weekend!

Weekend Edit: Style #3

fashion-inspiration-3This weekend I’m on a strict diet of no shopping. I may have gone ‘slightly’ over budget with some beauty bits and bops so I’m going to be a pauper for a while. With that being said I’m still compiling bits and pieces for my autumn/winter dream wardrobe. The ripped jeans and leather jacket are still there but I’ve added a few additions – I’m really loving Zara’s spring collection as well as & Other stories’s but of course neither store ships to Australia. Perhaps that’s a blessing in disguise.

Okay, that wraps it up – it’s Friday everybody! Have a lovely weekend and to my new followers hello and welcome. Thanks for all your lovely comments as always and I’ll catch you next week!

Weekend Edit: Style


With Summer finally on it’s way out (hooray), I’m making way for my favourite time of the year – autumn and winter. Style wise this time of the year is always the most exciting for me. I love nothing more than layering up and donning my monochrome uniform. Granted, mono isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I adore the simplicity. So for this Friday’s post, I thought I’d piece together some of the things on my mind.

One Perfection – the watch, long grey cardigan and Celines.Two My mantra/sentiments exactly. Three Love simple understated jewellery, maybe not to this extent but you get the drift. Four Still on the lookout for the perfect dark shirt. This is it. Five I’m on the lookout for a new pair of shades. Still haven’t found what I’m looking for but these come close. Six I adore everything about this outfit. Not something I would wear for everyday but it’s so chic and understated for dinner, drinks and nights out. Seven I’ve been lusting over these for a while. Totally up my alley.

Weekend Edit: Eat Street Markets

A couple weeks back I mentioned that I’d gone to a new night market called Eat Streets Markets. It’s Brisbane’ only shipping container-based market and it’s somewhat comparable to a South-East Asian night market. Think warm nights, the aroma of food and lots, and lots of people. There’s also lots of entertainment going on and overall it’s just a nice place to catch up and unwind with friends or family, especially after a long week.

EatStreet-1The markets are held at Hamilton Wharf (Brisbane) and operate every Friday and Saturday evening from 4pm to 10pm. We arrived as the sun was setting, so we experienced a very pretty backdrop as we feasted on a smorgasbord of goodies.

EatStreet-3EatStreet-2I wish we’d taken more pics of the delicious food we ate, but we were completely ravenous. When we weren’t eating we were dodging crowds or enjoying the bands and other entertainment. I guess we got lost in the moment, which was nice. I did manage to take a pic of a delicious Wagyu Beef skewer (see above). Let’s just say, it didn’t last very long. The Banh Mi in the same pic, was equally as delicious. Other food highlights included yummy Korean sliders and Okonomiyaki.
EatStreet-6EatStreet-5If you’re ever in Brisbane, this is a really fun market for the food lover. It’s set in a nice part of town and if you’re coming in from the city, you can catch the CityCat (ferry), which makes for a great night out.

Let me know if you like these sort of posts. I’d like to include the odd non-beauty or fashion post, so let me know what your thoughts are. Have an amazing weekend everybody, and as always thanks for dropping by and reading my blog.
