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!

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
