The Sunday Market

Entrepreneurial friends are great. Cos they do awesome things like set up shops selling gorgeous bohemian jewellery.  My friend Lou has started a Facebook store selling chic and inexpensive jewellery pieces that are really unique. She has free shipping for the month of June (worldwide), and will launch a heap of comps when she hits 100 'likes', so make sure you like like like!  She has new stuff arriving all the time as well :). 

Check out the store here!

My fave look this week - Olivia

As per usual Olivia gets it spot on. How does she manage to make clothes that are so simple look so beautiful?

Etsy Finds - Tilly Maison

I love lucite trays as a practical and stylish accent in interior spaces. I always intended on purchasing a Dabney Lee tray eventually, but they dont ship to Australia, which means having to use a shipping company. Overall fussy and expensive.

Then I found Tilly Maison, and I am soooo rapt! Her designs are tres chic and also ship worldwide. Happy!


I am particularly keen to purchase the gold leopard! 


Or maybe two, like this, for my desk?!

Here are a couple of examples of how lucite trays have been styled into interior spaces.

Jordana Brewster at home

Dallas is back on TV and I watched the first episode on the weekend.  Some original cast appear in the remake (that I am too young to remember) along with newcomers Jesse Metcalf (Desperate Housewives) and Jordana Brewster (Fast and Furious).  This made me want to revisit Jordana Brewsters home feature in Instyle Magazine last year.  

Her 1962 Hollywood A-Frame is just stunning!

Style Stalking Cheryl Cole

I am a big fan of this look from Cheryl Cole holidaying in Paris this past week. 


Her dress is by Dion Lee, and shoes by Charlotte Olympia. I doubt there was change from 2000 pounds for this outfit.  As always I like to look for a bargain 'inspired by' version.

Thank you Topshop. This Peplum dress is only 48 pounds.



And these double platform shoes in neon for 65 pounds.

Apartment Perfection

I am in love with this apartment in New York's West Village. Owned by Annabel Tollman, a British stylist, it is lovely modern and feminine chic.

The image of her lounge has been whipping around Pinterest this last week.  I am very partial to zebra, so this is just perfect!

Absenteesim

I have been absent from blogging for 2 main reasons.

1. a back and hip injury means that when i get home from work (sitting at a desk) the thought of sitting at my desk at home is a nightmare. Fortunately the hip is on the mend, slowly (this will be an ongoing 'battle') and i also upgraded my old laptop to a Macbook Air yesterday. The long battery life means i can blog from bed. Bliss.  Its also what i am doing right now!

2. i have been minding my brothers fianc├ęs chihuahua whilst they are holidaying in Fiji. (i have to be very clear its not HIS mini dog!) Now, our family dog is a rottweiler, so i have never really been exposed to the needs of a small dog.  Needless to say they demand a lot of attention!! I have also felt that he might be a bit nervous and lonely, so have spent blogging time walking him and generally giving him attention.

But he is home now, so i am free to blog again! However it is a long weekend in Australia, so blogging will resume after i get back from a weekend break.

I plan on watching the latest episodes of Pretty Little Liars and The Real Housewives of New York.  Guilty pleasure viewing ;). I might also finally read 50 shades of Grey......

Now i would post a great picture here, but I am still learning how to use a Mac! I will gladly take any tips you have on photo/image cutting and editing software, or general blogging from a Mac tips :). I am still trying to figure out the good old copy and paste...eek!
