Cheers to the New Year

New Years Eve!
Quite exciting actually. An excuse to stay up a ridiculous hour, wear killer heels and a smashing outfit. To put it simply: party like it's 1999 (in this case 2011). But it's the only time of the year where we can really look forward to new beginnings; the start of a new year! Out with the old and in with the new. 
For me 2011 has been very inspirational. With that thought in mind I predict 2012 will see those inspirations become a reality; decisions made; changes embraced.

In the spirit of New Years here are my top 5 New Years Resolutions.
  1. Explore
  2. Less Profanity
  3. Make A Difference
  4. Be Adventurous
  5. Be Open
What will 2012 hold for you? Only time will tell. One thing I do know: I won't let fear dictate my choices. Will you?

5...4...3...2...1... HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!

Inspirational Christmas

It's Christmas Eve and I've found a few minutes to escape to the computer to do a quick post while the ham is still in the oven. The aroma is breath taking. I can't wait to eat it all up!

I just want to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy holiday season - however you choose to spend it. It's been a crazy year; with a lot of highs and lows. If I could describe this year in one word it would be:
I hope you have also been inspired this year. Inspired to reach for your dreams. Inspired to overcome adversity. Inspired to take risks. Inspired to make a difference, to matter. Whatever it may be I hope you find or have found your pot of gold at the end of that beautiful rainbow. 

To my readers, thank you for taking the time to read my little blog. Your comments have been so uplifting. 
To my family and friends, thank you for just being you!

Much love lovelies :)

Dear Santa: I wish for - YSL

I think I've been really good this year! Don't you agree? 

Online shopping is both convenient and cheeky. Convenient because you can window shop in your pjs. Cheeky because this little fairy named temptation is softly whispering into my ear "you know you want it" and "hey it's Christmas you deserve a little something something for yourself". Or maybe the true evil is the allure of the credit card. Either way there are just so many precious pieces around the world that deserve a home. For me, right now, it is YSL's Arty Gold-Plated Glass Ring. Now these have been around for months. You've probably seen them on many blog sites, magazines etc but I finally found the gem stone centre piece that sends chills down my spine. This one is available on
What do you think? Should I get it?

I Crave The Sun!

The great thing...nay...the best thing about Summer is the fact that you can spend a whole day at the beach or laze around the pool. But alas the sun seems a bit shy lately; hiding behind grey depressing clouds. Come out come out where ever you are! My pretty new swimsuit from Zimmermann needs to get a good dose of vitamin D! 

Here are a few more of my favourites from the label's swimwear collection. They are absolutely adorable. There's a touch of old world glamour to the cut of this summer's collection (especially the onesies). The ladies on the beach have returned and are here to stay!

Byron Bay

Have you ever come across a place that just takes all your stresses and concerns away?
I've found that very place in Byron Bay; just 2 hours south from Brisbane. 
I'm a proud Queenslander but there's something about Byron Bay NSW that feels like home!
