October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we kicked off with a High Tea for the McGrath Foundation. You might wonder why I am at a BP station? Not the first place you would think of for a glamorous High Tea, I know… But BP is using its Australia-wide network of 1400 stores to help raise money for the…Details

Thanks to Nuffnang and Spotlight Sewing and DIY projects have fallen way down my list of priorities in the past year. I’ve been on such a decluttering and purging streak that the urge to create had been hiding. Now, with the clutter gone, systems streamlined and a much clearer head, I’m looking at my long…Details
Putting together fresh outfits for Spring is so much fun and its even better when there are super cute new things hitting the shelves. I popped over to WildKitty, one of my new go to local stores for retro girly sweetness, to check out their new seasons range and just fell in love with their…Details
I was Cat Called and I liked it. It began like any other Monday, fighting with the snooze button and responsibility. I dragged myself out from the warmth of my flanelette sheets and headed for the bathroom. A quick morning ritual of coffee, lipstick and a once over in the mirror. Nothing too fancy, just a…Details
Thanks to Nuffnang, Destination NSW, Qantas and Rydges Planning a holiday to Australia is something I don’t really think about; living here and all that is. You become very used to your own backyard and take it too much for granted. Want great fashion shopping in Australia? Well I live in Melbourne, but I’ve done all that a thousand times.…Details
Making your house a home with simple DIY projects is one of the great joys of vintage living. Taking what is old and giving it new life, imagining possibilities and reviving the story of something that is otherwise forgotten. I have a few tea caddys no longer in service and they have sat prettily on…Details
Image by Nina Friday – Available on Etsy I’ve been in a bit of a hole lately. It happens like clockwork every winter when the clouds roll in, the rain starts and the social life drops right off. When you have grand plans of hibernating in knitted socks by a fireplace in Pinterest worthy glory,…Details

Over the last six months you’ve been sending me your considered feedback on what you’d like to learn, helping you make each day more stylish, more affordable and faster to achieve. You’ve told me about how little time you have for yourself each day, how when a special occasion comes around your…Details
This is the Pin Up Girl Clothing, Mary Blair cat print skirt; and it is awesome! I did very little actual shopping whilst in the USA, spending most of my time working away on plans for this blog and learning a whole lot of new things. A visit to Pinup Girl Clothing in L.A though, was…Details
Brought to you by Nuffnang and Jura Let’s not kid ourselves; coffee is a vital ingredient to life as a functioning human being. Finding the perfect at home coffee maker is therefore high on my list of priorities. As a born and bred Melbournian, this sweeping statement becomes a little more understandable. For those of…Details
It’s a typical mid June grey day and I was wondering just what this week would bring, when I remembered I had my June Bella Box to open! Even though it technically arrived on Friday evening, I like to leave these things to enjoy over a cup of tea and a little sense of ceremony.…Details

Based out of New Zealand, Glory Days is a wonderful publication covering all manner of lifestyle and beauty features for vintage lovers of all eras. I was first turned onto them around twelve months…Details
Landing back in Melbourne I was deceived by the balmy late Autumn night. I gathered my things into the cab at the airport proclaiming, “Oh this isn’t so bad, perhaps I just don’t feel it anymore now that I have experienced a little of the US cold.” Foolish woman. By 10.30pm I was rugged up…Details
It has been a long time since I was last excited by the thought of an impending winter. Over the last few years I have been travelling through the most of those months and have missed out on those deep grey and rainy days. Since being in Philly and getting a rough idea of what…Details
