absolute paradise

I had a fantastic weekend...well all apart from about 11pm on Friday night until about 11am the next day. Friday night I had one of those long time no see girlfriend catch-ups which is always a blast...all I'm going to say is...a tinsy bit too much red was consumed.

Saturday some girlfriends and I lazed on the beach for about 5 a bit burnt but hey it all turns into tan eventually :) Sunday we went out to Carnac Island on a 65 foot was beautiful, I can't believe only an hour away from Perth there are so many amazing sights to see...felt like I was sailing around the Caribbean - I wish!!

speaking volumes

I was looking around on the internet the other day for my next (I call it) investment!

I promised myself I would get something colourful for summer but for some reason I always run back to my safe zone of neutrals...there is something wrong with me. Anyways I found some gorgoeus dresses right down my alley but put my foot down as the colour thing is growing on me :)

the twins

I absolutely adore Mary-Kate and Ashley's style. They are constantly evolving their personal style brands keeping everyone bedazzled and make for great style icons.

I love how they have the same tastes but are completely different to one another.

Favourite Things

I was re-organising my bedroom the other night and was astonished by all the cr*p I own. But then again, I love all of that cr*p so I decided to share it and show a few of my favourite things.

Heels - the next pair I purchase will see me having re-organise my shoe storage yet again!

My Lisa Ho ballgown.

My 23rd bday dress by Rachel Gilbert.

Ballet demis, pearls, diamonds and Burberry.

My everyday jewellery which was mostly bought for me, my grandad bought me a gorgeous white gold and diamond set with a ring and bell pendant necklace.

...and of course make-up!'s a given.

eye candy...or foot candy?

Like any normal lady I have an obsession with heels...that's my confession of the day!

Even if a pair of heels are impossible to wear but look good I'll still buy them and place them in my shoe-case to stare at and drool over..bit weird I know.

mmmm love metal and leather

Sort of going clockwise: Miu Miu, Kurt Geiger, Christian Louboutin, Kurt Geiger, Aldo, Gian Marco Lorenzi, Fendi, Balenciaga, Kurt Geiger, Topshop and Christian Louboutin.

quick fix

I had a close friend's 25th soiree on the was quite elegant, New York themed with an abundance of canapes and sweet treats not to mention flowing champagne and the sinful tequilla (yuck - but you've got to do what the birthday girl tells you).

I left the outfit til a bit late and frantically shopped all Saturday morning trying to find a black maxi dress...and success I found my maxi for $70, its a great blank canvas to mix and match, add and detract accessories. I was that desperate to purchase this piece I settled for it being a loose fitting size 12 (I'm a size 8)...a belt comes in very handy!

My friend's mum baked these scrumptious cakes...I could of stuffed my face all night but stopped at 1 piece of each.

Left: my lovely housemate.

I Heart Romance

I 'm a bit obsessed with the Dollies & Pearls, Oysters & Shells collection from Romance Was Born, I think its absolutely amazing and makes you want live in that crazy wonderland they have created.

Here are a couple of my fav pieces for your to drool over!

sucker for the sun

For my first post I thought I would track back to Parklife because I base the start of Summer around this festival. I think I bought my ticket 3 months or more in advance...its a bit ridiculous when you find yourself humming and harring about what to wear that early as was the boy's first time at an Australian festival and he loved it I'm happy to say.

Lady Sov was the highlight for me, well her and the cute dress I found at a cheap asian store 2 streets up from me!
