beautiful botanics

One thing you m ay not know about me is that I enjoy pottering around in our cottage garden, located in the front of our property, in my spare time. I always feel wonderful when I connect with nature in this way.   I also really enjoy spending time walking around beautiful g ardens, be it the Melbourne Botanical gardens, Olinda's Rhododendron Gardens or the Ballarat Botanical Gardens , which happens to be one of my personal favourites .  Whenever my husband and I travel to Ballarat to visit family, we always make a special trip there. It's just gorgeous! You've got to go if you haven't done so already. The only downside is that Ballarat can get very cold at this time of the year, so you need to make sure you rug up!  These pictures were taken on our recent trip to Ballarat, which was on Easter Monday. Hope you enjoy them! Have a lovely Sunday! I'm looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow and catching up with

Ahoy sailor!

E very time I have to go out somewhere on the weekend I think of all of the possible outfit options th at would best suit the place I'm going and what I'll be doing while I'm there. I'm my own p ersonal stylist! The particular place I was going to this morning was a shopping complex to pick up some new woollen throws for our leather couches.  My outfit of choice comprised of my favourite striped breton top and my high-waisted jeans. It's a casual look that's very French chic. I love the nautical inspired belt, with its stripes and brass buckle. I wore my new black patent pumps for the first time too. I just adore them! Last night, my husband and I had a wonderful evening catching up with some dear friends. We enjoyed talking for hours and eating scrumptious Italian culinary delights at Ricardo's Trattoria . I even had the most gorgeous gluten free sticky date pudding imaginable. If you haven't yet been

Getting Waisted

Picture this: a chic c able knit s weater, skinny jeans and ballet flats. It's a good look good, right? To turn it up a notch, simply add a bel t at the waist . I call this look "getting waisted". Here I've chosen a black sequined belt, which actually belongs to a Max & Co skirt I purchased a couple of seasons ago.  Do you like " g etting waisted" too? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment below, so we can keep in touch!  Well it's hard to believe that the holidays have come and gone. Work for me tomorrow, which admittedly I'm not really looking forward to after two weeks of sleep-ins and relaxation. It's been divine, but I knew this day had to come eventually.  Wishing you all a week filled with fun and all things fashion.  Don't forget to subscribe to my blog!

Made in Switzerland

What's made in Switzerland , is beautifully handcrafted and dates back to 1851? Bally Switzerland, of course! Bally has been bringing its loyal clients some of the most luxurious leather   handbags and shoes in the world for hundreds of years. H istorical facts and details usually bore me profusely, but not in this case. Bally's heritage is really quite interesting . In fact, the person who began the national globalisation of the brand as we know it today was a man known none other as Carl Franz Bally, or Papa Bally, an endearing name used by his colleagues. Carl's business philosophy was based on creating ' exquisitely crafted footwear in the finest materials that are divine to look at, whilst simultaneously functional and enduring.' 1   No wonder I love their shoes so much! Over the years, this prestigious brand has been worn by several famous people in history, such as the first man to walk the moon, Neil Armstrong , and mountaineers, Sir Edmu
