The shopping world continues to be even more accessible than ever, there’s more to chose from, there are lengthier and more frequent sale periods and with competitive shipping costs (alot of the time free...

When it comes to personal style, each are well and truly to their own. It is a reflection on personality, self awareness and conveying that through choice of clothing and accessories. Climate, budget and a person’s whereabouts play as the major factors of ones styling decisions. It’s a subjective form. Who are we to judge and say what is right or what is wrong?

We take inspiration from...

When it comes to fashion, colour is our best weapon. With winter fast approaching, we look to what colours are going to be seen and how we can wear them according to our own colour groups.

You may feel the need to wear what you think is on trend, but be mindful of that fact that the wrong hue can give you a pale, washed-out appearance. Wear a flattering shade so your skin (and appearanc...

Lace up, strap in, buckle up and hold on.

I’m embracing this climate 100% though. Let’s take advantage of this seasons trending, as Brisbane’s winter weather is the perfect time...

It might seem ludicrous to think about Fall trends while we are amidst the semi-blistering Aussie Summer – however I assure you, winter clothes will be in stores soon enough and you must be prepared.

The Fall 2011 shows revived some of my favourite trends in an exceptionally innovative – dare I say – fashion.

Travelling in Style

It’s clearly no news that air travel just isn’t what it used to be. Long gone are the glamour days of being greeted by fabulous models/actresses/air hostesses with little pill box hats and silk scarfs as you carried on over-sized bags of beauty products and the extra ten outfits that you think might come in handy (but in reality simply served as sparkly comfort blankets). Modern day flight, ho...

One thing that women of all shapes and sizes have in common is that the lingerie they choose to purchase must make them feel wonderful about themselves. From the most fine and petite frames to the biggest, boldest, beautiful body; lingerie was designed to make a woman feel sexy, sensual, desirable but most significantly, above all else, special. We all know that when your special ‘someone’ tu...
