Wine country

As some of you who read my blog on a regular basis would know, my husband and I recently went on a road trip around Victoria, the ACT and NSW. On our way back through Victoria, we stayed at a country town, well known for its history of winemakers; Rutherglen.

Fourteen years ago, my husband proposed to me while we were on a romantic getaway in Rutherglen. This place is filled with nostalgia for the two of us, so we were really looking forward to returning.

We chose to stay at Tulleries, which used to actually be a vineyard and still has remnants of the old vineyard, which surrounds the property. Our room was fresh and modern, featuring white, pops of colour and citrus lime green.















Rutherglen is fairly limited in so far as top-notch restaurants. One restaurant I can highly recommend is called Taste of Rutherglen. Newly opened, it boasts a black and white checkerboard floor, red walls, local art and fabulous food! 

Great wineries to visit are All Saints Estate, Campbells, Mount Prior, Pfeffier Wines and Valhalla Wines.  All Saints Estate has the amazing Indigo Cheese Co on their premises, which have cheese platters to eat and enjoy, either on or off site. 











Although I'm not a huge wine drinker, due to having fructose malabsorption, I discovered a wine I can tolerate; Moscato. The cheese platter we had matched perfectly to this very refreshing and drinkable drop! Just perfect.




I have been extremely busy with work commitments over this past week. I have been really looking forward to the weekend, so that  I can relax and rejuvenate before another week begins.

What are your plans for your weekend? Are you doing anything exciting?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Yours in style,

    1. Tien, you've made my day! Thanks for the compliment. Age is really just a number in my opinion. I believe that if you are young at heart, you'll always stay young. Hope you've been keeping well.

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!

2020-The Year of Surprises

A couple of years back, I was so disappointed to discover that the beautiful Ralph Lauren Boutique in Collins Street, Melbourne, was closing its doors. Unfortunately for me,  it was actually closing permanently. I loved shopping at Ralph Lauren because they were the only store in Melbourne to carry the high-end Ralph Lauren Collection , otherwise known as Purple Label. So began the search for a store in Australia. Unfortunately, there was no good news, after several phone calls and emails to and fro from customer service. My absolute favourite label, the Ralph Lauren Collection, would sadly become a distant, fading memory.  Fast track forward to 2020-the year of surprises; a year proven to be vastly different and challenging, for many reasons which need no mention,  I found out some very exciting news which was like absolute music to my ears! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available in Australia! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available at Chatswood Chase, New South Wales. Perhaps it w
