Two new things

Just a quick post to share a couple of new accessories I picked up over the weekend...

...a huge teardrop ring from Witchery and 'Who Do You Think You Are' crystal heart earrings from Alannah Hill.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Now it's time for some last minute cleaning, then off to bed.

My wedding day makeup

Yesterday I bought my lipstick and nail polish for our wedding...

Chanel rouge coco lip colour in 'Magnolia' and nail colour in 'May'.  I want to keep my makeup pretty natural and our colour scheme is ivory and soft pink with a touch of navy.

Kate Spade and The Lake & Stars

I am loving Kate Spade's new lingerie collaboration with The Lake & Stars... nude silk, hot pink trim and lots of tiny little bows.

This moodboard from the campaign shoot is pretty cute too.

Country Road Autumn 2013

Not very long ago I did most of my shopping online, buying mostly international brands, but local Australian brands have really picked up their game recently and I have found myself doing more of my shopping at home.  Country Road is one brand that I keep going back to... although mainly for their homewares and ballets (I have narrow feet and Country Road ballets have elastic sides which means they hold on well).  Here are my favourite outfits from the Autumn 2013 look book.

A simple home in Amsterdam

There are so many things I have planned to share, but I just can't seem to find the time to devote to this blog on a regular basis.   Ah well, I have two quick posts to share before it's off to bed to try to get some sleep before getting up tomorrow and doing it all over again.

The first is the lovely Amsterdam home of Eva van Dongen and Freek Tromp of Orphan Socks, an online store full of fabulous finds.

Country Road Home Autumn 2013

I love Country Road's Autumn 2013 Home range with it's combination of black, white, grey and timber mixed with just the right amount of polka dots and stripes.  I could be tempted.

Outfit inspiration: for the weekend

It's a little cold and wet in Sydney this weekend, so I felt inspired to put together an outfit with a little more of an Autumn feel: navy skinny jeans, a white boyfriend blazer and a soft pink leather satchel.  I would add a simple black tank top and black ballet flats for shopping or other rainy day pursuits.

En Français:

C'est un peu froid et pluvieux à Sydney ce week-end, donc je me suis inspiré pour faire une tenue avec une touche d'automne: un jean slim bleu marine, un blazer blanc masculine et une sacoche en cuir rose tendre.  Je voudrais ajouter un débardeur noir et des ballerines noires pour faire du shopping ou d'autres activités d'intérieur.
