All time favourites

What can you not live without? I'm going to let you in on a little secret of mine. Here are my top five favourites for every day that I cannot live without.

Number one on my list would have to be my hair straightener. GHD is the only brand I would ever trust. I can straighten and curl my hair and the fact the irons are ceramic, means it's kinder on my hair.

In second place would have to be my skincare by Elemis. Elemis is a brand from the UK, which is quite hard to source here in Australia. I purchase mine online from, a company based in Hong Kong, who heavily discount skincare, haircare, you name it, they most probably have it. I love the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for day and Pro-Collagen Oxygentating Cream for night. This range is at a better price point compared to Creme De la Mer.

In third place would have to be my trusty cleanser by Darphin. I love this formula! It glides on the skin and has a creamy texture and wonderful smell, not unlike fresh strawberries. The line is the Intral range, which is for sensitive skins, like mine.

Next on my list of favourites is my haircare by Kerastase. I was put onto this amazing haircare line years back by a hairdresser. I prefer to use the Bain Vital Dermo-Calm shampoo and the Nutritive Lait Vital range for the conditioner, number 1-for light conditioning. I don't like anything that's going to weigh down my fine tresses and this formula is the best for my hair. 

In  fifth place, comes my perfume. I absolutely love Lancome's Oui for every day. Oui is the perfect light, fresh fragrance that I barely notice on me. I do not like strong scents, as they give me a headache after a couple of minutes wearing them. Oui seems to go on and off the market and at the moment is temporarily out of stock. My backup day perfume will be Chanel no.19 Poudre, when Oui eventually becomes discontinued. For night, I prefer Chanel no. 5, the parfum. Chanel no.5 is renowned for its elegance and femininity. I just love wearing this fragrance of an evening. There's nothing quite like it.

So there you have it! My top 5 everyday favourites that I cannot possible live without!

Wishing all of you a fabulous weekend, filled with all of the things to make you smile from ear-to-ear! I hope to go shopping at some stage this weekend. Ralph Lauren is having a sale and I don't want to miss out!!

Yours in style,

French nautical

Ilove 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.

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. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…
