- all thanks to Boohoo

Dressed head to toe by Boohoo today. 

Boohoo have a massive range of women's fashion items to suit all tastes, with up to 100 new styles being added every day.  Prices are amazingly affordable and they offer free shipping for orders over $40 with easy returns.  

Funny story.  I often take my own outfit photos using a tripod and the 10 second timer, running back and forth to click the button, (no my camera doesn't have a remote control option).  Anyway for these I took a stack and then realised my fly was undone. Fail!  Back to running back and forth a few more times ;)

Buckley boots- Wittner (similar here)
Rings- thanks to Emma & Roe
Flowers- thanks to Fresh Flowers

Aren't these flowers beautiful! They arrived on my doorstep on Thursday afternoon thanks to Fresh Flowers and I snapped these pics, (in the rain :/) on Sunday as the buds were starting to open and show-off their beautiful colours.  I ordered them about 1.30 pm, and there they were at 4 pm on the same day! Such a great service!!  Now I must admit I took them out of their vase and re-wrapped them for the photos, so trust me, they looked far more beautifully presented than my botch job.

Fresh Flowers have a beautiful selection of flowers available and offer a flower delivery service in Melbourne and all major capital cities, with same day delivery available.  Such a heart warming gift idea for any occasion and there is no doubt flowers will always bring a smile to someone's face :)

And on another note,!!!! In love!!

Dyson V6 Absolute review

You know, British fashion designer and Vogue cover girl Victoria Beckham and me, hanging, doing our vacuuming with our Dyson V6 Absolute! It really must be the perfect vacuum cleaner, why else would Victoria be using it!!!! Also good to know that this lovely machine is actually available to all of us mere mortals.

I received this Dyson V6 Absolute last week and have absolutely loved using it.

My two year old Ash is prone to upending a bowl (make that the box) of dry cornflakes or weet-bix onto the carpet, add to that crackers and biscuits and whatever else he gets his hands on, and for extra giggles will grind it with his feet.  Hilarious stuff.  This is when this Dyson stick vacuum cleaner is at its element! I can whip it off its docking station fully charged and ready to go, suck up the mess in an absolute instant, empty hygienically straight into the bin and pop back into its docking station for next time... probably 30 minutes later :/   But seriously, juggling full-time work, being a mum, blogging, and life in general; anything that can makes things a bit easier is a real bonus.  I'm sure a lot of you are with me on that one.

I've also found that because this Dyson stick vacuum cleaner is SO powerful I haven't actually used the 'proper' vacuum cleaner at all.  Also the convenience of not having to lug out that 'proper' vacuum cleaner is fantastic, particularly considering we have carpeted stairs which always makes vacuuming extra fun (not).  The Dyson V6 Absolute easily gives me just as good a result without the extra weight (its only 2.3kg), plus I don't have to worry about filling up the bag and losing suction because the bag is getting fuller, and the extra expense of bags. It's also reassuring to know that the filter expels air cleaner than we breathe, so that means no little dust particles and allergens in the air to irritate sensitive lungs.

I also find it really handy to vacumn the car, again with a two year old, something that is done rather regularly.

Drilling down to details, the Dyson V6 Absolute comes with TWO Dyson engineered cleaner heads; one best for hard floors and one best for carpet.  Add to that a mini motorised tool, crevice tool, combination tool and a docking station and you may as well toss your 'proper' vacuum cleaner out the door.  You can read more about all the specs on the Dyson website.  I honestly highly recommend this product, it gives a fantastic result, is easy to use and a real time saver.

Smiles of Melbourne


Boots- Wittner
Shirt- Target
Aja jeans- Jeanswest
Millie bag- thanks to Louenhide
Manhattan cuff- thanks to Najo Jewellery
Sunnies- RayBan

I was so excited when Smiles of Melbourne approached me and offered to whiten my teeth.  Everyone wants a beautiful smile, including me!! Plus. I have tried pretty much every off-the-shelf option and have never been happy with the results.  Gels, mouth guards, toothpaste, whitening strips... seriously, everything!!

I also have issues with sensitive teeth, so it was so reassuring to be in the hands of a qualified and experienced dentist who knows how to really care for teeth.  But not only that, teeth whitening is the one thing Smiles of Melbourne do, and they do it really well!

The dentist spent some time with me beforehand running through the squillion questions I had, explaining how the product works and alleviating my concerns about sensitivity of my teeth.  I was actually really worried that I would't actually make it through the appointment because of sensitivity.

Then it was into the chair with an extremely attractive (not) thing putting my teeth on show, then whitening formula applied to my teeth, super cool sunnies on and the blue light set in place.  I had to 15 minute bursts of this and voila! White teeth! AND no sensitivity. None whatsoever! Such a relief.  So there you go, a brand new and beautiful white smile in a single appointment.

My white smile can be expected to last 6-12 months depending on how well I take care of it.  It can also be maintained by using off the shelf get products which is good to know.
