We had some lovely milder weather towards the end of Autumn which was the perfect opportunity to wear t-shirts and sandals before Winter truly kicked in.  Autumn you say?  Yes, I have to admit these pics were taken nearly two months ago- yikes!! (Actually I think I must have dropped a just a little bit of my baby weight since then too as these jeans are much baggier now- YAY!).

Wool = warmth, so for me each year as Winter arrives NatureShop is my first stop.  I'm still giving my woollen pieces from NatureShop that I got last season a good flogging but its nice to have something new into the mix.

This jumper is new in and 98% merino wool making it SO warm and SO comfortable.  I was really surprised that is was actually wool as it has such a relaxed sloppy-joe feel about it. The eyelet knit makes it so light weight, yet surprisingly warm and soft against the skin.  I just wore a singlet underneath and layered a coat and scarf over the top to stay cosy and warm.  I'm usually a XS-S at NatureShop but I got a Medium instead this time for a relaxed fit.  This colour is great for baby spew too! Sorry had to mention it, and it's machine washable so extremely practical for everyday wear.

This is the outfit I wore to the Melbourne Good Food and Wine Show the other weekend, which I attended as a guest of Fiji Water.  You can check out my pics from the event on the Fiji Water Facebook page HERE.

Recreate Yourself

The other day I received this Babyliss Pro Ceramic Concial Curler (and a stack of free samples) thanks to, Australia's largest haircare, skincare and cosmetics store online.  

I've never shopped for beauty products online before, but with RY (Recreate Yourself) offering FREE delivery, a price guarantee, 120 day hassle free returns, 100% authentic products guaranteed and FREE samples with every order I think I need to change the way I think!  They even have a new mobile site to make shopping online even easier e.g. when I'm up at 2am feeding my bub ;)

I've been after a conical curler to give my hair that beachy wave look, so had fun browsing the broad selection RY have on offer.  It was great being able to read the customer reviews to help me make a final decision.  In the end I went for the smaller barrel size as curls drop out of hair quite quickly- and here is the result above.  I love this curler, so easy to use and gives me that relaxed wave look that I was after.

This is my second look wearing these Novo boots from the Westfield Exclusive Collection Autumn Winter 2013.  Check out my first look HERE.

Don't forget to check out the Cost Per Wear (CPW) calculator available on the Westfield website too, it's fun to have a play with and what is giving you bang for your buck in your wardrobe!  In terms of the other items I'm wearing, the tee was about $10 from Big W menswear, and the pants are from Sporstgirl three seasons ago- excellent value in terms of cost per wear,just like these fab boots!

Rare Earth Hair

Well its that time of year again... time for my annual haircut!! So yesterday I spent a blissful hour in the chair at Rare Earth Hair in Prahran.  

It was certainly the attention to detail that made it such a relaxing and enjoyable experience- a real treat for this new mum!  From the large selection of complimentary beverages available, served with roasted almonds and dried apricots; the relaxing head back and shoulder massage to start, in addition to the usual scalp massage; a lovely salon ambiance and relaxing music. Salon owner, Donna even looked after Ash for me!  Not to forget a goody bag to take away which included a discount voucher for next time.  

For my haircut, bubbly Candice spent some time talking through what I wanted- keep the length, loose the nasty ends, no short layers.  All finished off with a glamorous blow dry.  I'm delighted with the result and it looks so much healthier don't you think.
