hello from Bali

Aloha. Or should I say kum de buc (?)

I'm just about to head off to dinner with the girls, my beautiful friend Soph is getting married tomorrow! So proud of her and can't wait to see her on her special day. Bali is bursting with life and love, it reminds me a lot of my years in Thailand.

Peace out for now.

This was last weekend, spent in the dunes with some of my favourite people. I was romping around in this little creation for a while, getting sunburnt and loving every bit of life. A barbecue, a few glasses of wine and a lot of laughs later, we spent the night underneath a starry sky.

Pretty good times.


To be special

Behind the scenes of the Spring 2012 Shilla campaign, shot with Tahilia from Chic. These guys are so much fun to work with, not to mention lustful pieces with a playful twist. Is it too early to start longing for Spring? For now, peek in at www.shilla.com.au for more.

Fresh from the PeepToe Warehouse Sale in Alexandria, I can safely say that if you are a shoe addict (trust me, you're not alone) - that you need to take the time to pop down today or tomorrow, and just have a look. And maybe a little feel. And maybe you should just try them on...

PeepToe have always had the skill to create a classic shoe with a trendy twist, without going out of season - like a lot of shoes do. You'll find an array of on-trend bright blues, burnt oranges and leopard prints, as well as the classic pumps in your staple mushrooms, blacks and whites. I tried VERY hard to contain myself. Honestly.

More details on the sale's hours / location are on PeepToe's Facebook page - here.

A few little things that miiiight just have made their way home with me...

Also, don't forget to enter the 'Snap & Save' competition that they're running - you could bring home a $300 PeepToe voucher (yes please...) To go in the draw to win, take a picture of your purchases at the sale and email it to enquiries@peeptoeshoes.com.au and tell them in 25 words or less, ‘How You Got Styled for a Steal’. Include ‘Snap and Save’ in the subject line of your email and don’t forget your full name and contact number. Each day of the sale the best entries for that day will be posted on Facebook and the winner will be announced in later on in the afternoon.

I'm going to go strut my stuff in my new Miss Oracle's now. Happy girl.


Whilst I was drowning in work, visa applications and misery from not being able to be in the sunshine today, two of these little guys joined me on the balcony. As a humble host I offered some Wonder White. Seems they're more into the fine caviar and champagne, which I was out of at the time...


watermeloncrush x POSSO x Volcom


I am suuuuper excited to announce a little giveaway that's going to get you dancing.
No really.

In collaboration with one of my absolute favourite DJ duo's : POSSO - and Volcom, I've got five pairs of these leather headphones to give away. You all know I like music, and when I was sent a pair of these a few months ago I lived in them. It kind of got gross at one stage, but I can't live without beats and these babies play them well, and also fit really well.

Oh what, you want in? I thought so.

Simply comment on this post with your name and email address, and answer the following question:
“Where in Paris did the dynamic duo recently play a gig?”

If you're not a die hard fan (yet) - don't worry. POSSO are contributors at Volcommunity, and you will find the answer pretty easily on their blog : http://www.volcomunity.com/contributor/posso/

I will be drawing five winners at this time on Thursday the 29th of March. One week exactly.

Good luck! x

Bendon 2012

Now I know a lot of you work in / live for the fashion industry, and though I'd let you in on an exciting event happening this weekend in Sydney-town. Leading intimate apparel company Bendon, in collaboration with Chic Management, will launch its first ever ‘Bendon National Model Search’ to find the faces and bodies that will represent the company’s brands. Bendon’s underwear brand portfolio includes Pleasure State, Elle Macpherson Intimates, Lovable, Bendon, Bendon Man, Macpherson Men and Davenport Underwear.

One successful entrant will win a contract with Bendon and have the opportunity to appear in fashion shows, photographic shoots and promotional events, as well as model for Bendon’s brand catalogues and soon to be launched online store.

The open casting for men and women will be held on Saturday 24th March from 10am – 3pm at Bendon’s Sydney HQ (that's this Saturday...!) Female entrants must be aged between 16 - 30 years of age and male entrants must be aged between 18 – 30 years of age. They are looking for all shapes and sizes, so don't be shy.

If you think you have what it takes - make sure you get yourself down there on the day to strut your stuff. Or, if you're like me - just come a long for a day of watching the castings and admiring a whole lot of beautiful people. For more information, see www.bendongroup.com/modelsearch




Miss Shop Blogger Project

If you haven't already heard, Pedestrian TV have teamed up with Myer Miss Shop, to create an awesome little collaboration of two of the best worlds : fashion and bloggers. I feel honoured to have been asked to part take in the Miss Shop Blogger project, showcasing the Autumn / Winter collection which is now available in-store and online.

We spent the day in Old Sydney Town, with über talented Akila Berjaoui behind the camera - capturing the 'Country Girl' - a theme that suited me to a tee. The clash of beautiful and practical is what makes the 'Country Girl' style so wearable, and easy to fall in love with. I can safely say that the team at Pedestrian, along with the rest of the group were some of the most professional and fun people I've ever worked with - thank you for having me on board! You can read my full story on the Pedestrian TV site here.

Over the next few weeks, you'll be seeing other familiar faces such as Jess from Tuula, Sara from Harper and Harley, Zanita from ZanitaZanita and Mandy from Oracle Fox to name a few.

And then... there is a little BIG piece of awesome news.

Myer Miss Shop 'Australia’s premier destination for youth fashion' is bringing the world’s most recognisable fashion blogger (and my ultimate girl-crush), Fashiontoasts Rumi Neely to Australia for the first time. Rumi will be in Australia launching the Miss Shop Blogger Project, the largest fashion blogger collaboration ever seen in Australia.

Umm... so who's excited? Rumi will be in Melbourne for a Q&A at Myer this Saturday - more details are to come shortly. If you're already a follower, you might have seen that she's just arrived in Australia, so make sure you show her an awesome time.

lift off.

This is exactly what I feel like doing today. I have admitted defeat to some sort of flu - not feeling one hundred peeeercent today.

badass clothing for groupies, surfers, hippies, hitchhikers, rebels, skaters, lovers, stoners + other unusual suspects.

Yep, these guys had me at hello. When I stumbled upon their summer 2012 lookbook on Mandy's site, I couldn't help but click my way back to the sugarhigh + lovestoned 's website - where I found myself getting lost in an hour of beautiful photography and kick-arse clothing.

Can't wait to see more of these cool kids, in the meantime, follow them on their blog and / or Facebook
