Fit and flare monochrome dress- thanks to Surbala
Tony Bianco heels- thanks to Uni Hill DFO
Bracelet- PeepToe (similar here)
Sunnies- Rayban (here)

This summer dress is from Surbala's latest collection.  A lovely classic style, in a lovely classic print and so easy to dress up or down.  I wore this to picnic in the park with my husband and baby, and of course just switched the heels for flat sandals.

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!

Party season

Mossman pants- thanks to Uni Hill Factory Outlets
Tony Bianco shoes- thanks to Uni Hill Factory Outlets
Top- Sportsgirl (similar here, and here)

Here we are in the midst of party season, and this is my party outfit that I have put together based upon some bargain finds at Uni Hill Factory Outlets.  I found these pants at Mossman for only $50, and these beautiful Tony Bianco shoes were reduced from $170 to $50!!!! Matched with a crop top to balance out the relaxed fit of the pants, some simple accessories and there you have it.

UHFO are located on Janefield Drive, Budoora in Victoria and are open 7 days, 10am-6pm.  A great place to visit to find your New Years Eve outfit!

Has anyone else out there attended a Nurtrimetics party?  I went to my first about 15 years ago now and it really was my first introduction to caring for my skin and wearing make up. Well, Nutrimetics are now celebrating 45 years of home-grown dermatological expertise!!  

I was lucky enough to try out two Nurtrimetics Hydra Brilliance Lipsticks ($25), and with ingredients including vitamins E and C it explains how soft they make your lips feel, and why they are so comfortable to wear. The colours pictured here are Raspberry and Merlot, both cool colours, to match my complexion. 

Ultra pigmented eye shadow shades are in this Summer, and this Colour Impact eye shadow ($20) in Mulberry, also a cool colour, will be just the thing to update my look. Finally we have the Nutri-Rich Instant Radiance Beauty Balm ($49) for those who want to instantly refresh, brighten and lift the complexion- I'm pretty sure that's most of us!  It's a lovely smooth formula, thicker than I expected and easily absorbed, and I do agree it did make my skin appear more radiant.

If you are still Christmas Shopping, there is still time to purchase online with Nutrimetics to receive your products before Christmas! Free shipping for orders over $55.

Bikini- thanks to Baku Swimwear
Towel- thanks to Baku Swimwear

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen I recently had a holiday to Noosa with my husband and baby boy.  I hadn't been to Noosa before, but loved it!!  The weather has been hopeless in Melbourne of late, so it was wonderful to have beautiful sunny, warm weather all week.  We spent all our time in the pool so I was stoked to have a fabulous new bikini from Baku.  Tossing up between plain black and this gorgeous bright print, I finally picked the print- its so much more fun!

Baku has a fabulous collection of swimwear for this Summer, well worth checking out if you're on the look out for a new pair of togs!

Atterley Road

Converse- thanks to Surfstitch
Sunnies- Rayban (here)

This dress is new in from online womenswear boutique Atterley Road, I couldn't resist the purple and honey toned leopard print, and being a shirt dress it just happens to be perfect for nursing too!  My first instinct was to pair this dress with a belt and high heels but inspired the styling suggestions on Atterley Road, I went for a more casual look.  Something that suits me far better these days chasing after my quick crawling 8 month old!  

Atterley Road also provide detailed information on fit, fabulous customer service, beautiful packaging and to tempt one even more FREE express delivery!

The approach of summer means a change in wardrobe from jeans and boots, to skirts and sandals.  But before you break out your prettiest frocks make sure you have your Schick Hydro Silk Razor ready to get your legs silky, smooth, and skirt-worthy.

Featuring five curve-sensing blades, Schick's Hydro Silk Razor has a unique moisturising strip which helps the razor glide over skin, and keeps skin moisturised for up to two hours after shaving. I had the opportunity to try this razor out for myself and with its ergonomic handle I found it so easy to use, even over knees and around ankles- no nicks or cuts!  My previous razor only had 3 blades, the five blades give such a smooth finish.  The kit also come with a handy suction cap shower hanger for your razor.

Now to a GIVEAWAY:
WIN a Schick Hydro Silk razor kit

Leave a comment below with your email address so I get can in touch if you win.

Giveaway ends 30 November 2013 and is only open to Australian residents.  Prize valued at $14.25.  Best answer wins.  Good luck!!

Summer sandals

Novo sandals-thanks to Uni Hill Factory Outlets

Summer is just around the corner, and finally the weather is starting to warm up, which means... goodbye boots and hello sandals! And, I have found the perfect place for you to find some gorgeous shoes for Summer- Uni Hill Factory Outlets.

I popped past Uni Hill Factory Outlets with $50 to spend at one of the many shoe stores in the centre including, Aquila, Birkenstock, Converse, Fila, Milu Shoes, Nike, Novo Shoes, Platypus, Rivers, Shoe Zone, Sketchers and Tony Bianco.

Initially I wasn't sure how far my $50 would go, but with up to 70% off the biggest brands there were actually heaps of options for me.  I eventually decided upon this fantastic pair of flat tan leather sandals at Novo for $49.95 which will be so perfect for Summer.  I also spotted many shoes for far less than $50, and Novo in fact had many shoes around the $10 mark.  Amazing! 

Uni Hill Factory Outlets are located on Janefiled Drive, Budoora in Victoria and are open 7 days, 10am-6pm.

The Luxe Project

Jeans- Saba (similar here)
Shirt- Portmans (similar here, and here)
Boots- (similar here, and here)
Necklace- markets Bangkok
Sunnies- Rayban (here)
Spanx- thanks to Sweaty Betty
How fabulous is this bag! Such a statement piece, and even more special because it is actually made from handcrafted vintage fabric of South East Asia's hill tribe garments.  The strap is genuine leather and the bag is also fully lined with an internal zip pocket, and phone pocket.

The Luxe Project is the brainchild of Melbourne based mother/daughter duo, Chutisa and
Sharidan Bowman, and their one-of-a-kind bags are a true reflection of both their personal heritage and professional backgrounds.  The Luxe Project have a range of bag styles and fabric options available, as well as beautiful handcrafted accessories like the key ring attached to my bag.

In other exciting news I am back in my size 6 Saba jeans!!!!! (happy dance)... I wasn't sure it would ever happen but nearly 8 months post baby I'm finally fitting into the majority of my wardrobe.  I'm also wearing the ever popular Spanx which no doubt helped my jeans glide on smoothly and button up with ease :D

Tigerlily shirt- thanks to Surfstich
Jeans- Zara
Heels- Steve Madden

It seems of late I am wearing every shirt and jeans combo I have in my wardrobe, but it really just works so well don't you think. This shirt is from Surfstitch; I love the bright colours- a little bit eye catching and different from your average shirt.  I think it would look fabulous with denim shorts or white skinny jeans too for a much fresher look, or even a striped skirt for a clash of prints option.

And you guessed it, the heels are just for you guys- I made the switch to my Birkenstocks which I've had for years but are conveniently in fashion at the moment.  Mine are red and the flip flop style, probably not so in fashion but comfy none the less :)

Sandals- thanks to Misano Shoes
Necklace- Angelique

This lovely maxi is one of Soon Maternity's best sellers, so perfect for any of my pregnant readers- but also a dress will be a great addition to your wardrobe throughout nursing and beyond.  I was so tempted to get the black, but tried to be little bit brave and went for this bold red!  It also comes in a shorter length and in a range of gorgeous prints.  Today I've paired it with these glamorous gold flat sandals, and simple gold jewellery.
