EVERY COLOUR ILLUMINATES.

I waited for so long to get my hands on these Watson X Watson leather pants, and finally (when in Sydney) the opportunity came where I was able to get my hands on them. They are without a doubt the softest and most comfortable leather item I own and unlike other pants I have tried in the past, I don't find myself constant pulling up of them in attempt to avoid an unwanted boyfriend style drop crotch. Am I the only one who has this problem with pants? Could potentially just be my lack of hips that is to blame. Whilst not a huge fan of neon (talk about trend over kill) I am loving my new Shakuhachi singlet. It's a nice pop of colour into a what I feel is still a very sleek look.

DO THE TANGO.

Colour's can be so much fun sometimes, can't they!? I wouldn't call it an obsession (because I still love my black on white, black on black combo's) but I am really getting into the swing of things with this fun summertime trend. They key to wearing colour is keeping it simple! Can you believe these tropical colour ankle jeans are SUPRÉ? Neither could I when they first came my way, as they are so soft and comfortable and for a girl who struggles to find the perfect pant ... these provided me with some what of a solution. I love that the polka dots in my adorable linen ZARA t-shirt match the pants as well and the neutral base works so much better then a black or white. Finally, I'm so in love with my 8 Other Reasons rose gold accessories at the moment! I have received so many compliments on how 'interesting' my Only Half Truth necklace is.  Watch this space for my 8 Other Reasons - Give Away next week! So Exciting!

A Visual Diary x Sydney.

Wouldn't have been a short break without some happy snaps. During July, I travelled to Sydney for a bit of work and play. I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner some where different each time for 6 days! I met awesome people, discovered amazing new labels and got my S/S 2013 showroom fix, to say the least. I travel to Sydney a couple times a year, but this was by far my most enticing trip so far. Perhaps a sea change is on the horizon? 














1 & 2 - The Grounds of Alexandria
3,4 & 5 - Tailormaid Showroom, happy snaps
6 & 7 - Elysee PR goodies
8,9 &10 - Pieces from The Undergroup
11 & 12 - Well deserved rest in the Bookshop Cafe (Oxford Street)

Warm Blooded.


I think that most warm blooded Queenslander's will be glad to feel that things are starting to warm up here. We really just don't cope well with winter because its never cold enough to layer, but we look ridiculous getting around in shorts and thongs. I have to admit this has probably been the first year where I felt like I've had wardrobe options for the cooler season, because it actually GOT cold for once. Dressing trans-seasonally, wearing my trusty Sass & Bide roll neck jumper (which has been on high rotation) with the "Kiss A Groupie' skirt from Dissh, and then accessorised with my amazing Scylla Design pieces (no girl is without bullet casings and crystals at the moment) and the must have 'Mistress' glasses which are walking out the door at Sportsgirl at the moment.

Keeping things a little obscure with this interesting piece from Evil Twin, the Armageddon Ring is available from Beginning Boutique.  It's been a regular comrade during arm parties and ring soiree's of late.  Having taken a real fancy to this kind of jewellery recently, I think you all should too and Evil Twin is a great place to start! All pieces are available here!

The Wanderlust X Samantha Wills.

Wan-der-lust; An impulse, desire, or urge to travel or wander.

If you follow my on Twitter / Instagram you know that recently I have spent time in Sydney. During my excursion I stopped by the ah-mazing Samantha Wills HQ for what was an inspiring and worthwhile check point.  After I was lead into what was possibly the most fragrant room I have ever stood in (other then a floristry) I was introduced to the new SW. Wanderlust collection. Inspired by living in the moment and not falling asleep in the taxi as newly travelled cities whizz by the window, inspired by late night dinners, spontaneous outings and the never ending desire to travel and explore new territories and make new friends. A perfect juxtaposition of materials, this collection fulfils all the necessary accessory requirements as well as providing the perfect pieces for experimenting and changing things up! There are no rules, no colour co-ordination and no 'Do's & don'ts'... you are free to wear SW. however your want with no limitations, making each of these pieces extremely desirable.

For the rest of the collection and to shop online click here.
