Burberry September 2017
















For years now, Burberry has been one of my favoured British design houses. Led by Christopher Bailey at the design helm, the collection for September, 2017, is edgy, contemporary and yet very eclectic. With the addition of tartan, this collection stays true to British history and tradition.
Of course, I am most partial to the tartan skirt. I have two in my arsenal.

Enjoy your week!

Ralph Lauren Collection Pre-Fall '17








In my eyes, no other designer does it quite like Ralph Lauren. I guess what appeals to me the most is the timelessness of the garments and  the sheer fact the garments are classics, which means they will still look fabulous in years to come. 

Of course, a designer must know what looks best on the woman's figure. I love the way Ralph Lauren garments skim a woman's curves and highlight the most flattering areas. 

My absolute favourite piece from the new Ralph Lauren Collection for Pre-Fall '17, consists of a two piece tweed jacket and pant ensemble, the Helene Jacket which highlights the shoulders and pants skimming the hips. So chic, so classic and timeless. 

What is your favourite piece from this collection?

Ralph Lauren Never Lets Me Down






There's one brand that never lets me down, and that's the iconic American designer label, Ralph Lauren. I still own several oxford shirts which I wear to work that I bought years ago. They are still in good nick, despite the numerous times they have been worn. Now that says a lot about the quality and craftsmanship of the brand. That's why I will continue to purchase Ralph Lauren garments. 


What is your favourite go-to, "never-let's-you-down" label?

Enjoy the long weekend, peeps from Australia!

Back to my favourites

Well, I am finally back on the blog and boy, have I missed it. Life has been extremely hectic and I have had little down-time of late. My work a a primary teacher, whilst rewarding, is hectic, crazy and demanding. It is report writing time for me, and I am hoping that writing on the side, will help get me through all the stress. I have missed posting on here but now I am back, it feels wonderful! The blog is definitely one of my favourites in my life.

Speaking of favourites, today my most favourite, "can't live without" beauty product is now back on the shelf in my vanity. I am talking about Creme de la Mer: the ultrarich creme. I do not know how I have survived without this for as long as I have.

The price is quite excessive, but I strongly believe that you get what you pay for. If I added up the total price of all of the beauty products I have used recently, I think I would come fairly close to breaking even. You see, when you buy inexpensive, low range beauty products, the results are not as good, and you need to used double the quantity, so as a consequence, you run out of them quicker.

So I am content with having these two favourites back in my life!

I would love to hear about your "favourites". Leave your comments below!

M Missoni






My husband found this M Missoni dress hanging on the racks at Myer, Melbourne. Luckily it was in my size; IT 38 (Italian sizing). Every time I wear this dress, it makes me feel amazing. If a garment can make you feel that good, it's a keeper, as far as I'm concerned. That's why I firmly believe in investment dressing. I can honestly see myself wearing this dress in years to come.

new lengths




After years of growing my hair, I finally got the chop and it feels absolutely amazing. I cannot remember the last time my hair felt this healthy. 

How do you like my new look?

Finding peace











It's taken me some time to readjust to the busyness of full time teaching after such a long break over Christmas. It seems there is not much time to do anything, let alone blog, which admittedly I have missed. 

The place I retreat to when life gets crazy is the ocean. This is where I feel most complete. I don't really know why or how, it just feels right. 

For me, nothing beats the tranquility of the ocean, the sounds of the waves rolling in and out, of birds flying overhead, walks along the sand, hair tussled by the ocean breeze. The feeling of sand between my toes, paddling in warm rock pools, collecting shells along the shore. Nothing on earth feels as good as it does when I am at this place.

I know the ocean will be waiting for me whenever I need to take time out, to find the peace amidst the hustle and bustle.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. 

Keep in touch.
