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
Invest in yourself! 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
Having these past nine weeks in the US has given me time to really enjoy and reflect on simplistic beauty. The changing of the seasons across the states, the cold I never see in Melbourne and the incredible transformation of the landscape. The Bluejays, Robins, Woodpeckers, Squirrels and Deer; all make the most romantic visions…Details
It was quite a while ago that I had the Perfect Pin Curls part one for you, then I somehow went ahead and lost the footage to part two! Never mind though, it gave me the perfect excuse to film a little something in the powder room at the White Swan Inn last week for…Details
San Francisco! What a city this is. I’ve only had the opportunity to drive through here once before and never really got a feel for it. This time has been quite different, including a stay at what has now become one of my favourite hotels in the world, The White Swan Inn. As we were…Details
Oh my fellow vintage loving friends, do you know just how much I adore SparkleLux? I first came across these delicious designs not long after they launched in 2010. SparkleLux is the original reproduction confetti lucite company, hand making each piece in their Palm Springs studio. Unlike many imitators, SparkleLux pieces are of the highest…Details
Brought to you by Nuffnang and Etsy The memories I have of growing up are still crisp and fresh in my mind, thanks in large part to the small mementos and slide nights we’d have as a family. (If you don’t know what “slides” are, Google it!) With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I’m keenly aware…Details
You wanted a winged eyeliner tutorial and here it is! I’ve been asked more times than I can count, to show you how I do my winged eyeliner. It is, without fail, the first thing I’m asked in all my workshops and I love to see the difference it makes to people when they get…Details
