In the Capital

We left Lakes Entrance early this morning, headed towards the NSW border, stopping at Bombala and Cooma, snow country. The trip became a little mundane after a while and I tried amusing myself on YouTube and the Internet. We didn't have much time to plan our music on itunes before we left home, so had a choice of rock and power ballads-argh!! We set the music to random and, in the end, I admit it did drive me quite crazy. itunes, here I come. I think you'll be my saviour for the trip on the way home!





Along our travels today, we saw many beautiful sights, including some shy little sheep, most of which ran away as soon as we approached.I managed to snap this pic, before they ran away!


When we arrived in Canberra, I must say I started feeling quite patriotic, knowing this is our country's capital city. I am a proud Aussie, after all. 


I last visited the A.C.T (Australian Capital Territory) back was when I was just a little girl. My family went on a vacation to visit parliament and the War Museum. I can't remember much of the trip, just the magnificent bronze statue from the Museum. That image has stuck with me to today. I can't wait to see it again during this trip, except this time, I'm certain it won't seem quite so tall.

During our stay in Canberra, we're staying in a deluxe suite at the Pavillion on Northbourne. Here, they offer hotel suites and serviced apartments. Although the room is smaller than the one we stayed in at Lakes, it has everything to make our stay here a comfortable one. the only thing it doesn't have is free Internet. Oh well, one can't have everything all of the time (just most of the time-he he).









Tomorrow I'm looking forward to going to the Canberra Centre for a spot of shopping. Afterwards, we hope to attend the Floriana exhibition where we expect to see lots of floral and Spring Fashion Carnival displays.

I hope you're having a great week so far.

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
