Brass beauty – Sagitine’s new Luxe Collection

Those of you who have been following along on Instagram will know that my husband and I recently moved into quite a small house with our two young children. While we should have been up-sizing we decided to down size and up style. Having completed a small renovation we are now very happy with our little place, however with a small property comes BIG storage…

non-maternity bump friendly wear for pregnancy

Five bump-friendly, non-maternity pieces for the first 5 months

During my pregnancy with Little Miss I jumped straight into unflattering maternity wear and completely lost all sense of my own personal style, and in turn lost a little bit of me. This time around I was determined to stay me and a lot of that, for me at least, came down to wardrobe. If you, too, are looking for some non-maternity wear to get you…

My favourites from Life Instyle Sydney 2016

Now that almost everything I loved at Life Instyle is in-store and ready to purchase I thought I’d put together a guide to my favourites from this year’s Sydney show. What did you love?

A family trip to bliss

During the first week of March my whole family (parents, siblings, wives, husbands and children) packed up (lightly!) and headed over to Lord Howe Island. Just 2 hours from Sydney, off the east coast of NSW, Lord Howe Island is truly a little piece of paradise. The water is crystal clear, nobody uses locks on their doors and turtles swim just meters from the shore. The…

Using the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 packing method with a bump

A little while ago I stumbled across A Pair & a Spare‘s genius article, How to Pack: The 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Guide (definitely worth a read if you are packing with a weight limit). With our Lord Howe Island trip upon us, a 14kg weight limit each (which must include our snorkel) and a growing baby bump to accommodate, I put the 5,…

A postcard from Gerringong

Our family has totally fallen in love with the South Coast. After years of heading north of Sydney for the Summer holidays a few years back we headed south and we haven’t turned back. I actually love the South Coast even more on cool days; when the wind starts up and the fog sets in. Even over the Summer there are days like these… Styling…

Freelance fashion: date night

Freelance fashion: what I wear, when. It is DW’s birthday today. Unfortunately, we have both had an absolutely ENORMOUS week, including a trip to Emergency for Little Miss earlier today, so I think we will end up having pizza on the lounge watching recorded episodes of The Block! However IF we were going out for dinner, this would be my go-to date night outfit.Yep, I…

RUOK? Day: my story

It is RUOK? Day today, Thursday 10 September 2015. RUOK? Day is an Australia-wide initiative that seeks to raise awareness about mental illness and encourage everyone to ask a simple question to friends and colleagues: R U OK? Start a conversation; this simple question can be so much more helpful than you could ever image. I am ok, however I haven’t always been. I…

Freelance fashion: working out & about

Freelance fashion: what I wear, when. I have dramatically slimmed down my wardrobe recently. This was not of my choosing – we put most of our clothes and personal effects into a storage container when we sold our house, thinking we would be in a new house in perhaps 4 months. That was 6 months ago! The upside? I have learnt just how few…
