The premium and unique accomodation was simply divine and acted as the perfect spot for a little romantic beach getaway. We had the pleasure of staying in the Garden Room, which boasted a lavish living space, king size bed and balcony to match. The bathroom was covered in Australian made, Biology skincare and haircare amenities, which acted as the perfect post-beach products during our stay! Breakfast was served at the hotel restaurant and the view of the beach from breakfast was just a bit too good to be true!
The executive suite hotel room was simply divine. With an almost overwhelming amount of space, we didn’t know what area we should relax in first! The room was fitted out with beautiful chic tonal furniture and a roomy balcony for afternoon drinks during sundown. The bedroom area had moody lighting and acted as the perfect home away from home. The bathroom was filled with a huge selection of Kevin Murphy vanity products. From their amazing angel hair wash and rinse to body lotions and washes. It is safe to say that we were very well looked after!
During my stay I also got to experience an amazing styling session at Wink Hair Salon with Kevin Murphy products. The hair stylist spent time with me deciding how best to style my hair for the day and explained each and every product she was using on my hair. I loved how patient she was and by the end of the experience, I left totally convinced that I simply must buy all the products in order to have a good hair day – everyday!
I am currently running a competition through my Instagram where you can win this exact experience too! So make sure you enter if you are interested!
As you all know, I don’t travel far without my Lipault travel bags and luggage and my recent trip to Bangkok was no really exception. This time I was travelling with their latest JPG x Lipault collection. The two pieces I took with me were their Tote bag and 55cm Spinner suitcase. I got both pieces in the black pinstripe style, which I particularly love as it goes with literally any outfit I am wearing.
The collection has a real dark and moody feel to it. It is much edgier than some of the other pieces available from Lipault, particularly due to the design and colours available in the range. The two main designs available in the collection are the pinstripe design, which comes in black or brown and the marbling effect that comes on some of the suitcases. There are also some great black all leather pieces available too.
I found the suitcase and tote bag super easy to travel with – they were both super lightweight and great for international travel. I particularly loved how much room was available in the tote bag. In my tote bag I stored all my valuables and items that are most likely to break in transit such as like laptop, cameras and of course… sweets treats for the 9 hour plane ride.
I have another quick trip coming up tomorrow to Sydney for work and I will again be travelling with all my favourite Lipault products. When you’re onto a good thing, why change it!
With Spring Racing having come and gone, I just wanted to share a couple of images from the week that was. As always the week was filled with fun, great fashion and even better company. This year I attended Derby Day and Cup Day and was lucky enough to be hosted by PACE DEVELOPMENT group during the week. I was also given the opportunity to stay at PAN PACIFIC MELBOURNE during the spring racing carnival to try out their SPRING RACING package. The hotel was the perfect escape from Flemington and acted as the best home away from home.
Anyways, here were my two race looks this year!
First things first, apologies for the radio silence over here! I find that in months when I am particularly busy working on projects, collaborations and exciting pieces of content – I blog the least – which is rather ironic given ‘fashion blogger’ is my preferred occupation title… Nonetheless, here we are – AND for what better reason than to showcase the new UNIQLO x ALEXANDER WANG collaboration. The collection has been created in collaboration with New York designer ALEXANDER WANG. The purpose of the collaboration was to re-envision UNIQLO LifeWear, creating a series of HEATTECH designed to be layered or worn alone. HEATTECH fabrics are intended to enhance warmth and comfortability when exercising in colder conditions – but for me, I just love the look of the pieces. Layered, worn alone, worn in the middle of summer – or more specifically where I am currently located – Bangkok, Thailand – the pieces ooze style, comfortability and cool-ness. Yep – I love. Congratulations UNIQLO on yet another incredibly successful designer collaboration!
When it comes to diamonds and tiaras – look no further than luxury French jeweller Chaumet. For those who are not familiar with the brand, Chaumet was founded in the late 18th century. The founder, Nitot, was passionate, creative and had an eye for detail, quality and originality. As time has gone on, Chaumet has continued to exude style and elegance, but has also introduced an element of modernity, which echoes that of true Parisian taste. It is exciting that we now welcome Chaumet to Australia. In anticipation for their first Melbourne boutique, located in the heart of Chadstone Shopping Centre, I was given the opportunity to visit the boutique and try on (but unfortunately not take home!) some of their flawless pieces.
One of Chaumet’s collections that really caught my eye was their amazing Joséphine collection, inspired by muse Joséphine. The collection perpetuates grace and elegance, with a twist of modern creativity – emphasised in the collections playful variation of colourful stones. The collection is both sophisticated and feminine and expresses the exact style and timeless nature of the Chaumet branding. Although practically impossible to pick favourites with a collection like this, I was instantly drawn to Joséphine Aigrette pieces with Garnet and Aquamarine stones.
Whilst working with Chaumet, I was also given the opportunity to attend their amazing in-store event, which saw the boutique totally transformed into the style of muse Joséphine’s apartment. Decked out totally in dusty pink, greenery and a huge neon sign, the boutique was quintessentially Parisian chic, sophisticated and playful in nature. The event was a raging success, which saw VIP customers; media and well-known fashion influencers sipping champagne whilst celebrating all things Chaumet! I was lucky enough to be able to wear some of the jewellery from the Joséphine collection on the night. Thank you again Chaumet for a brilliant evening and for the chance to work so closely with you to produce content, I am forever grateful for this unforgettable opportunity.
The colours from the collection are absolutely amazing, with a variety of burgundy, beige, cream, navy and camel – the collection is nothing short of french-chic at its finest. I gravitated to the white panelled shirt and tweed suit as the pieces were classic and timeless. I love the jacket and trousers worn together as a suit with nothing underneath, but for day time wear – I’d probably try it unbuttoned with a tee underneath!
Let me know if you head into store and check out the collection and also what you think!
I love playing around with shooting film and although I am not overly good at it and definitely have not yet managed to get past the ‘auto’ setting, I still love the element of surprise when you get to see the final shots a few days (or weeks in my case here…) later. So here are a few shots from the last couple of weeks.
I always forget to bring my film camera around with me and when I do have it, forget to shoot with it- so I end up taking one snap from each day/moment – which is kind of nice but also makes for literally zero choice when it comes to selecting shots to post! So here are only a few of my faves out of the roll.

Spring has just about almost sprung. With warmer weather promised to be just around the corner, I couldn’t help but jump straight into this little Ganni floral dress from Shopbop. The perfect piece for frolicking in the sunshine and sipping moscato by sunset.
Anyways, this week has been pretty crazy. Yesterday was spent on location the entire day shooting a really exciting campaign that will be launching next month. I simply CANNOT WAIT to share the details with you all. And the rest of the week will be spent shooting/preparing for MFW next week…
Anywhooooo – I am quite literally obsessed with this dress. Here I paired it with my Chanel slingbacks but would also love to wear it with my patent leather Doc Martins and a white tee underneath for day time/more of a dressed-down look.
I’ve linked this dress and a couple of other Ganni dresses that I absolutely love at the moment below…
Looovvvvve. The end. x
Last weekend I spent some time up in Sydney test driving my newest LIPAULT PARIS travel pieces. As an ambassador to the brand, it is safe to say I haven’t travelled far this year without my LIPAULT PARIS travel companions on hand and this trip was no exception. I travelled with their latest URBAN BALLET 55cm Spinner, which was the perfect size for carry-on luggage. Aside from being conveniently lightweight, the suitcase also expands, providing more space for all the clothes I was convinced I couldn’t live without for one weekend… I also brought with me one of their wallets and a handbag from their PLUME ELEGANCE collection. All pieces were incredibly easy and durable to travel with and the fact that they also worked with all my outfits was simply a bonus.
Soon I’ll be travelling to Thailand for a couple of weeks and I already cannot wait to bring all my favourite LIPAULT PARIS travel pieces with me! The only problem is is that i’ll need about 10 of their suitcases, not one!
