I love when real life turns out better than a movie script and this one is even better than a Bond film (especially Quantum of Solace. I’m a big Bond fan and I thought that one was lame.) The US has cracked a Russian spy […]

eating out: arriva

I’m a little lonely at the moment while the boy is holidaying in Italy with his family and a little grumpy that work is too busy this month for me to join him there. So what did my parents decide to do to perk me […]

lusting for: sugar and cream dress

I was planning to write a witty and insightful semi-political post today but Mondayitis* has set in and my brain just won’t cooperate. The only proven antidote to Mondayitis is some window shopping (or should that be Windows shopping when it’s online?) and I’m taking […]

louis vuitton’s ladylike fall campaign

It’s that time of year when our northern hemisphere friends are boiling to death yet are about to be bombarded with autumnal clothing choices. On the upside for me, I can buy beautiful new clothes and wear them straight away (fall weight is perfect for […]

in the news: gillard is australia’s PM

One of my childhood dreams was crushed today – I will not have the chance to be Australia’s first female Prime Minister. Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration, given I decided politics was not for me quite some time ago but Australia having a female Prime […]

While I’ve been distracted with the World Cup, another of the world’s big sporting events has started – Wimbledon. I’m not really a tennis fan but given the Grand Slams seem to be just as much about the fashion as the game these days, I […]

We already know you can buy Twilight inspired jewelry (including your own tacky copy of Bella’s engagement ring if you’re so inclined – see here) but did you know you can also buy jewels inspired by my preferred vampire series, True Blood? Perhaps you did […]

Vespa Pizza is one of my casual neighbourhood favourites so when the boy and I were choosing somewhere to celebrate our half-anniversary (you know, the ones halfway in between real anniversaries), it was my first choice. We headed down on Thursday night to discover the […]

lusting for: world cup nails

I have a confession to make – I’m a bit of a World Cup tragic at the moment (I did get up at 4am on Monday morning to watch Australia’s dismal first game, after all). I’m not normally a sports-mad girl so I’m not sure […]

The lovely Roxy from Effortless Anthropologie is currently on lying on a beach in Mexico and very kindly offered me the chance to write a guest post on her blog while she’s away. Being a bit of an Anthro fan, I’m a regular visitor to […]
