Friday Night Drinks

On a warm summer's evening there is nothing more appealing than a scoop of homemade lemon sorbet drowned in champagne.  As light and bubbly as air with the tang and sweetness of lemon and sugar it is guaranteed to lift the spirits.  Happy Friday!

Friday Night Drinks

A full moon, strong dark rum and sailing the high seas is my poison tonight.  Happy Friday.

Time Flies

This week is dragging its heels for me and I cannot believe that it is only Wednesday.  It always astounds me that I can simultaneously wish days away and at the same time complain about getting old.  So I plan to try and embrace the day tomorrow and not wish the hours away, this will be no mean feat given the fact that I have a day full of very boring meetings scheduled.

In the Red

What is it about red hair that inspires so much passion (both positive and negative)?  Personally I think it is quite beautiful.

Sea Dreaming

After I snapped this shot today of some of my jewellery sparkling in the sun, I was struck by how much it reminded me of seaweed and the sea.  Now I am craving a trip to the beach.

Friday Night Drinks

On Sunday I plan to visit a winery that makes one of my favourite Rose wines.  In anticipation of this visit drinks tonight are a glass of this pretty blush wine.  Its raining and storming outside so it seems the perfect night to put on some perfectly pretty lingerie and curl up in this blush hued room. Happy Friday!

In The Wild

I love these spectacularly beautiful images from photographer Racetay.  The muted but vibrant colour and stunning focus are beautifully framed.  To see more of Raceytay's work please visit the here.

Friday Night Drinks

Over the last week I have fallen in love with Marshmallow Kokettes from my favourite chocolate shop in the city.  I am not usually a marshmallow eater but these super soft and sweet squares coated in premium milk chocolate are too much for me to resist. In honour of this new found passion tonight's drinks are super sweet and girly.  A rich hot chocolate filled with pink marshmallow and laced heavily with rum.  Of course to wear it has to be something ridiculously frothy and pink.  Happy Friday!

An Angel in My Shower

How fabulous and beautiful are these handmade angel wing soaps from SatinandBirch?  They are way too pretty to use but would make such a lovely addition to my bathroom.  See their etsy store here to purchase. Unfortunately for me they don't post to Australia at the moment so I will just have to admire online.

Hair Love

Im off to an event next weekend and am looking for a hairslytle to go with a very simple shift dress that I am wearing.  I love the these three images above, my favourite being number 1.  Would love to hear your opinion on which I should choose.

Friday Night Drinks

After a busy week I feel like something utterly frivolous and fun to drink. Pineapple juice and rum with loads of fresh ice is entirely appropriate and this flirty yellow dress (minus the black net veil and stockings) would be perfect to wear. The grilled pineapple and ice cream dessert is also very tempting. Happy Friday!

Space Wars

Fashion, art or just plain ridiculous??

The Swing

How spectacular is this image, it gives a whole new (glamorous) meaning to swinging from a chandelier.

Friday Night Drinks

Although it is sickly sweet and guaranteed to induce a hangover, I have very fond memories of peach schnapps, usually consumed by shot at the end of the evening.  Eli Saab's 70s inspired peach frock adds the right level of kitsch to the evening. Happy Friday!

Clashing Brights

Wandering past a shoe shop in the city today I spied a pair of neon bright shoes (similar to pic one) that now have me lusting for all things bright and beautiful.  Completely impractical and a fast fading fashion trend I'm not sure that I will buy them but they are certainly spectacular to look at.

Deja Vu

Around this time two years ago Victoria, the State that I live in, was hit with the worst bushfires in the history of the nation resulting in a massive loss of life and wide spread devastation.  At the time I remember the number of text messages and telephone calls from concerned friends and family.  The roles are reversed this week and it is with a feeling of deja vu that I contact my parents, brother and family and cousins who are all in or close by the floods that are devastating South-East Queensland to check that are all right. With the death toll set to continue to rise along with the flood water it it is yet another reminder of the harshness of this beautiful country we inhabit.  Wishing safety to everyone affected in this area.
