Sisley, my saving grace

Well, it's been a while since my last blog post. Life has been so crazy busy for me with teaching full days, then coming home absolutely exhausted. I wonder whether or not it is this long, cold, drab Winter that's making me feel like this. I usually feel like I have so much more energy in the warmer months. Please tell me that I'm not the only one going through the Winter blues?

When I found out Sisley Cosmetics Paris do a hydrating mask, I just had to try it. I have leaned more towards skincare over the past couple of months as my skin has not been handling the harsh climate too well.



If your skin feels dehydrated and needs a pick-me-up, check out Sisley's Express Flower Gel Mask. Sisley's products are made from pure botanicals and essential oils. The beauty of this mask (no pun intended), is that you can leave it on without rinsing it off and even wear it during the day under your makeup. No kidding, it makes your skin really hydrated and fabulous for the entire duration of the day. Pretty amazing, huh? Ask for a sample from any Sisley counter. I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised like I was. I'm yet to buy a full size, but it is definitely first on my list of must haves for this month!

Anyway, I had better go and get some more beauty sleep. I'm counting the days down until Spring. Who's with me? Stay warm, for those of you still in Winter land. 

Yours in style,

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!

My top ten must-haves!

Fashion fads come & go, but real style stands the test of time. As mentioned earlier, I'm one for classics versus trends. I love buying clothing that lasts and is therefore timeless.  I have put myself up for the challenge of finding classic pieces using Audrey Hepburn as an example. Here's my list of the top ten must-haves!! 1. Man's style classic buttoned down white shirt 2. LBD-Little Black Dress 3. A-Line dress/skirt 4. Trench Coat (Burberry is the original) 5. Black turtleneck sweater (Preferably cashmere) 6. Leopard print (one piece at a time/NEVER more than one!!) 7. Silk Scarf (Preferably Hermes) 8. Ballet Flats 9. Pearls (Earrings/necklace) 10. Investment handbag (look to Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada for classic styles)   What's your favourite out of my top ten must-haves?  Enjoy your weekend and, whatever you do, make sure you do it in st
