Eyelash extensions

Recently I was fortunate enough to receive eyelash extensions from one of Melbourne's best Master eyelash technicians, Melissa at The Lash Spa.

The Lash Spa really is the ultimate beauty experience, it is such a beautiful light filled space with flower covered walls (available for hire just so you know!)  Tea and chocolate upon arrival, and a lash care kit, including a gift certificate and more chocolate upon departure are just some of the special touches.  However, what I really loved about Melissa was that she had continued to study her craft, evolved with new eyelash trends, and learned what eyelash extensions would suit different eye shapes.

I chose a dramatic cat eye effect, which has saved me having to wear eyeliner and mascara everyday! It's awesome and saves me so much time!! The lashes feel soft and fluffy, and there is no clumping or weird stuff happening. Just a dash of effortless glamour.

I know the price point isn't what you might see in some nail salons, but trust me, this is not a beauty treatment you want to skimp on. Have a look at some of the blog posts on The Lash Spa to see lashes gone wrong! It is not pretty.  Plus there is also heaps of before and after pics so you can see more of Melissa's excellent work for yourself.

Beaded slides

Blouse - Urban Revivo
Earrings- Seed
Lila embellished slide - Seed

The warmer weather has finally arrived in Melbourne and I couldn't be happier! Time to (finallly) pack away the Winter coats and embrace off-shoulder tops and beautiful beaded slides.  This top is one I picked up while on holidays in Singapore a couple of months ago.  How fabulous are these bell sleeves!

Christmas is now less than a month away too.  We took Ash to see Santa last weekend which, of course, he thought was awesome.  And the Christmas tree is now up which makes me feel happy just seeing it covered in decorations and lights up the living room.

Hopefully back with another post before the end of the year.

Marshmellow Boutique

Moto mid-blue ripped mom jeans - TopShop (exact match here)
Paris dog sweater - thanks to Marshmellow Boutique
RayBan sunglasses - thanks to Visiondirect.com.au
Sneakers - Adidas superstars

This cute jumper is from Marshmellow Boutique, a store in Wollahra (Sydney) filled with unique pieces to appeal to the woman who recognises quality, and appreciates tasteful, feminine design.  And I think that statement really sums up this jumper! (and me!!) It is indeed excellent quality with beautifully soft fleece, and the sequin and tassel details of this gorgeous pup is incredible.  I love that this jumper is so easy to wear for a casual weekend look, as well as being a bit fun. Wearing today with my Topshop mom jeans and snapped at the golden hour, catching the last of the Winter afternoon sunlight.

As I'm in Melbourne, I couldn't visit the Marshmallow Boutique store, but don't worry they do have an online shop, AND my order arrived with a little sachet of marshamellows.  No word of a lie, it took me a week before I made the connection and had that 'ahuh!' moment.  Marshmellows from the Marshmellow boutique, lol.

Cuff & necklace - thanks to Najo jewellery

These pics are from a recent holiday to Palm Cove, just North of Cairns, QLD and that pool behind me is where we spent pretty much eight hours a day for a week! Safe to say Ash LOVED the pool.  He is still doing lots of imagining and make believe stories about us flying back to our 'new house' with the pool so we can go for a swim :) 

Onto the outfit, a simple black slip dress is so perfect when it is hot, sunny and humid, and of course a hat a necessity.  I loved this iconic Deus cap I found at Surftitch, also grabbing it in the blue colour way.  I only thought of buying it last minute before the holiday and was so lucky that delivery was the next day, so I had it just in time!  Surfstitch have a great range of brands for the whole family, in fact I was so tempted to the get the Adidas Stan Smiths for Ash also! And I still might ;)
