Back to Creme de la Mer

My skin has been looking really terrible lately. The Winter weather has left my skin parched and lifeless. I have been trying a few different products, to no avail. Just when I was about to give up, I remembered how good my skin looked when I was using Creme de la Mer. The only thing stopping me from using it was the hefty price tag. This stuff is not cheap. I decided to bite the bullet and bought myself a small jar. My skin has already been transformed. So far so good...


I remember when I first started using Creme de la Mer, I felt less concerned about the appearance of fine lines and dehydration. Sometimes, I would wake in the morning and, after cleansing, would not feel like I needed any moisturiser. That was a first for me, especially for someone with very dry skin, 

I tell you this cream really works and after having tested many high end products over the years, I can firmly say that this cream comes up trumps. If you can afford it, buy it. 

La Mer have different creams to suit your skin type, from normal-dry-oily. They now have a new cream known as the Moisturising soft cream for those who prefer a lighter texture than the Creme de la Mer. 


It is my belief that sometimes one has to sacrifice other things for the sake of great looking skin, hence my lack of posts about any new clothing!! I feel that we only get one skin and therefore we should look after it. It's not like I'm getting any younger either. Although, this cream can help fix that problem!!

Here's a short video about the highly coveted Creme de la Mer and the miracle broth that has made this cream famous.


My week so far has started off to a great start. Today went by so fast, so let's hope the rest of the week continues to fly. I cannot wait to put my feet up and relax!! 

Have a great week!

Yours in style,

    1. Hi Meg, be sure to stop off at a La Mer counter and ask for a sample suited to your skin type. I always like to try before I buy. Thanks for your comment.

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango! The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt!  For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally , especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove. So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes.  Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection: Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals. Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!

French nautical

I love stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time.  There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet. Audrey Hepburn Brigette Bardot I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.     This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar . They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this!  This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands.
