West Elm coming to Australia!!

This is possibly the most exciting thing to happen since....well....ever (in the retail world).  Yes it was exciting when Zara opened in Melbourne, but you could always buy that at a reasonable price online.  With interiors giant West Elm, many items have been out of reach simply due to exorbitant shipping costs.....but not any more.

Due to open in Sydney in 2013 along with Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma, West Elm will now be my go to retailer for up to date interiors accents.

The one thing I have been dying to buy is a new rug, here are some faves on the current US website:

Istanbul Rug

 Zig Zag Rug
Safari Rug

Kite Rug

Asos Sale Finds!

I love a good sale, and I love ASOS, so I was very excited to pick up some bargains in the lead up to summer!

ASOS Leopard Pants (A bit crazy, hopefully will look good dressed down for summer). They were a steal at only $26.

Now I am going a little bonkers for these out of control printed ASOS Pants, only $36.

Gabriel Hendifar Interiors

Thanks to Pinterest I was able to stumble upon these beautiful interiors by Gabriel Hendifar.  The first image makes me want to go right out and by a persion-y aztec-y rug and a lovely marble topped coffee table!

And this image is all about the light fitting (and the affordable Ikea Rand rug)

Outdoor Living

Its currently winter in Australia, which means there is not much outdoor living going on. However, I am furiously searching for outdoor spaces so I am ready to revamp my outdoor space come Spring.

Feast your eyes on these lush outdoor spaces.

David Jones Fashion Launch

David Jones held their official 2012/13 Spring Summer fashion launch in Sydney last night, attended by 400 VIP guests.

 My favourite look of the night was off the catwalk by TV actress Jodi Gordon.  She wore a gorgeous tangerine dress with dipped hemline by Josh Goot.  Combined with slick hair and a red lip, she looked fantastic :)

What I also love is the conservative cut of the dress.  Its not too tight and the sleeves make it quite classy.

My favourite on catwalk look was Miranda in Lisa Ho.  Just love the colours, cut and flow of this dress!

Blogging and The Olympics

With the Olympics being in London and me being in Melbourne, there were some seriously early morning/late night TV viewing sessions. This, combined with a new fitness routine meant that something had to give and that was blogging. BUT I can now share my most favourite parts of Olympics, 2012!

Patsy and Edina, carrying the flame. Love Ab Fab!

Wills and Kate, hugging it out.

Sth Africa's 'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius. What an inspiration!

Hilarious Olympic diving photos

The crazy abundance of neon Nikes in every sport.  Seemed there was a version for basketball/running/cycling/athletics/more.  I want!!


Funny Olympic memes

And this genius from Jenna Marbles

There were also a heap of medals in there, an overwhelming closing ceremony (hello Spice Girls!), a hate page on Facebook dedicated to the free to air TV coverage (yes it was awful Channel Nine!), and Usain Bolt.  

CAN'T WAIT for Rio!!!

Charlotte Casiraghi for Gucci

If this new ad campaign from Gucci doesn't make you want to go out and buy a pair of loafers and a shirt, there is something seriously wrong with you :).

A pair of Gucci loafers is a little out of reach for myself, but ASOS of course have a similar style for around $57.
