Hey Readers!
I apologise for the delayed post on my outfit for Melbourne Cup. I love dressing up each year and making it totally different from the last. This year, I decided to embrace the white-on-white trend. It's fresh, it's easy to style and it's one hell of a risk (avoid red wine and dirty seats, people!).

Melbourne Cup fashion is known for bold colours and eccentric fascinators. However, I wanted to keep it simple this year. I didn't wear a fascinator or a hat, but a head chain. It gave my outfit a bohemian feel and I loved the way it turned out. Consider this my 'boho' take on the classic Melbourne Cup fashion.

Skirt: Bardot
Shoes: Zu Shoes
Head Chain: Lovisa

Hey Readers!
Christmas is just around the corner, which is absolutely insane. I swear I was just celebrating the new year! Since Christmas IS well and truly on its way, it's time to hit the shops and start getting gifts organised for family and friends. Or if you're already organised or need a break from the chaos, why not spoil yourself a little bit? It's time to reward yourself for all of your hard work!

Stefan is about to launch their new Christmas promotion. You can choose 1 of 4 amazing bags (2 of which you can see in the photos below) and fill it up with as many Stefan and ECO COCO goodies as you like and get them for half price! Not only are the goodies going to be worth it, but so will the bag! They are such a great size. I'll be using mine for beach days and little getaways! The amount of stuff you can pack into these bags is insane. You will go home feeling very lucky!

Now, what would a bag be without using it for fashion purposes? I styled 2 of the bags in my own little way.I added a fuchsia top with vibrant shorts against the black canvas bag. My shorts feature dark tones which matched the black accessories perfectly. The pockets at the front of the bag are perfect for your phone, purse and even some snacks (if you're like me and constantly need to eat).

For my second outfit, it was based on the 'sports luxe' trend. The grey top and black split pants were a perfect match for the gold bag. It's so easy to chuck in a towel, some sunscreen, a magazine and a bottle of water on your way out the door to the beach. It was also a cute addition to the gold hat!

Make sure you keep an eye out for the promotion to snatch up some amazing Stefan and ECO COCO goodies!

I got my model on for the day to be a part of the social media campaign!

Calling all Brisbane fashionistas!
It's time to start saving for some serious spending. H&M has announced today that Indooroopilly Shopping Centre will be the first Queensland shopping destination to hold this iconic international fashion retailer, opening in March 2015. 

“H&M is a highly successful international brand that Queensland has been wanting for a very long time. We are delighted that H&M chose Indooroopilly Shopping Centre to open its first Queensland store and that we will be able to offer our customers yet another exceptional fashion shopping option,” said the Centre Manager of Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Leah Mienert.

The store will be located on Level 2 between David Jones and Target (also known as the south end of the designer precinct)

The newly refurbished Indooroopilly Shopping Centre

While I'm sure I'm not the only one living in envy of Melbourne and Sydney residents who have access to this global chain, I cannot wait to see how H&M impacts the Brisbane retail scene. 

Best to save your extra Christmas cash and welcome H&M into the sunshine state!

Hey Readers!
It's getting HOTHOTHOT here in Brisbane which means it's time to dust off that swimwear and put it to good use. Swimwear is definitely something I have difficulty buying. I have strict requirements of what I look for, so I've put together some swimwear that I give the good ol' tick of approval. I thought I'd start things off with this series by showing you this vibrant bikini from Talulah. 

Thank you Talulah for creating this wonder of the swimwear world! It's has a beautiful print, a cute cut and it feels secure. Security is definitely something any girl should put as a #1 when looking for a bikini. I would prefer not to relive that time when my bikini bottoms fell to my ankles while being thrown in the surf. Oh it happened and it was a struggle! 

Whatever your style may be, I have some wonderful pieces to show you as we cruise our way into Summer. Catch ya poolside!


Bikinis: Talulah
Sunglasses: Cotton On
