August 22, 2014 in entertainment by Lauren

It’s that time of year when The September Issues hit the shelves and to promote Vogue UK’s edition, the magazine has created a short film directed by photographer Mario Testino.

Cara Delevingne looks amazing as she shows us exactly how to shoot a Vogue cover. And if you’re wondering who created the fantastic backing track, it’s by female rock duo Deap Vally. Happy Friday!

in the news: buy victoria beckham’s clothes

August 5, 2014 in fashion, news by Lauren

Victoria Beckham has teamed up with The Outnet for the mother of all sales – which makes sense, given the proceeds will be going to charity mothers2mothers!

That’s right, Mrs Beckham has selected over 600 pieces from her personal wardrobe to auction on 20-25 August, including hats, shoes, bags, jewelry, designer ready-to-wear, costume pieces, coats, skiwear and evening dresses. (Let’s take a moment to contemplate the fact that she has 600 items to sell – I have serious wardrobe envy!) The designers of the items read like a veritable who’s who of the fashion world: Roberto Cavalli, Alexander McQueen, Roland Mouret… the list goes on!

But let’s not forget this is for charity, and such a worthy one at that. The funds raised will help mothers2mothers’ Mentor Mothers reach even more HIV-positive mothers with critical health education and support, to stay healthy and protect their babies from HIV infection.

You need to register if you want the chance to take part in the auction. Watch the video below to learn more.

monthly favourites: july

July 31, 2014 in beauty, fashion, food and drink, movies by Lauren

July Favourites


Fashion: I hit the sales hard this month but my favourite purchase is actually something I bought full-price (quelle horreur!) I am completely smitten with Anthropologie’s Tenaya Jumpsuit (1). It’s so cute and comfortable, perfect with flat sandals during the day or with heels for dinner. This one is going to be in high rotation over the summer!

Face: I may have gone a little overboard on beauty products while I was in New York and Paris this month (in truth, I could probably set up my own mini Sephora now) but my number one purchase has to be the GlamGlow YouthMud Mask (2). I know I’m incredibly late to the party on this and the entire rest of the blogosphere has already put it into the category of cult favourite – but there’s a reason! It exfoliates, tightens the skin and makes pores completely invisible. Your boyfriend might complain that you look like a swamp monster for 20 minutes (or at least mine does) but it’s worth it!

Food: You wouldn’t think I’d go hunting for Australians when I was on holidays in the US, but somehow it always seems to happen. Why, you ask? I need good coffee! Fortunately the team at Bluestone Lane Coffee (3) know their brew AND have three locations in Manhattan. Give them a go – although I take no responsibility if you can never face a cup of drip again!

Film: Yes, I was one of the people who Kickstarted Zac Braff’s new film, Wish I Was Here (4). Make my investment worthwhile and go see it!

Flashback: As I’ve kicked back into blogging more frequently again, I’ve enjoyed re-reading this post from 2010 about whether a person can be intelligent and still like fashion (5).
