Wine country

As some of you who read my blog on a regular basis would know, my husband and I recently went on a road trip around Victoria, the ACT and NSW. On our way back through Victoria, we stayed at a country town, well known for its history of winemakers; Rutherglen.

Fourteen years ago, my husband proposed to me while we were on a romantic getaway in Rutherglen. This place is filled with nostalgia for the two of us, so we were really looking forward to returning.

We chose to stay at Tulleries, which used to actually be a vineyard and still has remnants of the old vineyard, which surrounds the property. Our room was fresh and modern, featuring white, pops of colour and citrus lime green.















Rutherglen is fairly limited in so far as top-notch restaurants. One restaurant I can highly recommend is called Taste of Rutherglen. Newly opened, it boasts a black and white checkerboard floor, red walls, local art and fabulous food! 

Great wineries to visit are All Saints Estate, Campbells, Mount Prior, Pfeffier Wines and Valhalla Wines.  All Saints Estate has the amazing Indigo Cheese Co on their premises, which have cheese platters to eat and enjoy, either on or off site. 











Although I'm not a huge wine drinker, due to having fructose malabsorption, I discovered a wine I can tolerate; Moscato. The cheese platter we had matched perfectly to this very refreshing and drinkable drop! Just perfect.




I have been extremely busy with work commitments over this past week. I have been really looking forward to the weekend, so that  I can relax and rejuvenate before another week begins.

What are your plans for your weekend? Are you doing anything exciting?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Yours in style,

    1. Tien, you've made my day! Thanks for the compliment. Age is really just a number in my opinion. I believe that if you are young at heart, you'll always stay young. Hope you've been keeping well.

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…

Update on Ralph Lauren in Australia

Most of you guys know how very fond I am of Ralph Lauren clothing, particularly the runway womenswear Collection label. I have published multiple posts showcasing this iconic American brand. The impeccable quality, fit and style of the Collection label is second to none-the creme de la creme, shall we say. I think the Ralph Lauren Purple Label for women, now named Collection, has the best slim fit cashmere sweaters on the luxury designer market today. I own several pieces. But now that's about to change. 

Why, you ask? Because Ralph Lauren Melbourne, Australia, is no longer going to carry the luxury Collection label. That's right folks. You heard it right. 

On a recent birthday stay in Melbourne earlier on in May, I visited the Ralph Lauren's Flagship Store on the Paris end of Collins Street. I had saved up my hard earned money to purchase another slim fit 100% cashmere sweater in Lux Tan. I looked around in the store eager with anticipation, hoping to find the sweater in qu…
