Banish the bags!

As winter grabs hold of Melbourne this week, I find myself doing a lot of decluttering. First to go were my clothes and shoes, followed by the kid’s toys. And just yesterday I managed to remove over 50 shopping bags from the kitchen cupboard. I haven’t quite grasped the notion of TAKING your shopping bags […]

Mid Century Napoleon

Attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places- Slim Aarons. So you all know that in a previous life I was a 1960’s Hollywood celebrity that had a fabulous house in Palm Springs and would swan around the pool dressed in a Pucci kaftan sipping on dirty martinis, right?

Bags be gone- dahlink!

The other day I found myself at one of those glam beauty counters the Kmart cosmetics section- cause that’s just how I roll sometimes- looking for nothing in particular. I had some time to kill and I had already checked out the undies and socks for $2, stocked up on 5 million cotton ear buds for […]

6 steps to not looking hideous.

So here’s a conversation I had recently which kind of irked me. Her: You know you always looks so great and put together. I don’t know how you do it. Me: *blush* Aww…thanks. Her: I don’t know, I just don’t have the time to do anything in the mornings. *laughs*  I guess I’m just lucky […]

Beauty in a flash…

Sometimes my favourite blog posts to read are the ones that give me an insight into the blogger’s personal life – little things like their favourite shoe, what they did on the weekend or what they had for dinner. It’s that voyuer thing we all have going on- well I do anyway, which explains my […]
