Channelling chanel?

Hi all,

I saw this black and white cardigan and immediately thought Chanel. I don’t have any white cardigans and this one had some great black striped detail and buttons and faux pockets

I think this will be a great addition to my wardrobe πŸ™‚ Though I’m trying not to spend so much money because I have an upcoming overseas trip coming up and I want to buy a car too!


Turqoise, Purple and Black and white

Hi all,

I have had some lucky finds this past week – I scored this key necklace from Dotti – originally $18 to $2 πŸ™‚ I can see it being paired with a plain black top πŸ™‚

I have been loving this black and white skirt from Target and I paired with a turquoise top and a purple cardigan to give it pops of color πŸ™‚

Your hut or mine?

Hi all,

The weekend has come round again – boy week’s fly by and it’s nearly the end of February. We have had bursts of hot and sticky weather and then thunderstorms! We also have bushfires happening in Northern Victoria as well in the Grampians area which is not good.

But I’m definitely glad for a weekend – a time to relax! I have relatives over from overseas so I’m sure there will be a lot of eating involved! It’s funny that even though we don’t really keep in contact, when the whole family gets together it’s hard to get anyone to stop talking πŸ™‚

Essie – Your hut or mine?

I’m wearing this pink Essie polish from the resort collection called “Your hut or mine” I think it’s a lovely summery polish and I’m excited to try this nail decals that my friend bought me from overseas πŸ™‚

Correspondence club – February

Hi all,

I’m loving Correspondence club this month πŸ™‚ I received two cards from my penpal in the US. Thanks so much Sauni πŸ™‚

I love that she created one and the other one is so unique.


It is of all different zodiac animal signs in the chinese calendar.

It is interesting to hear about different people from across the other side of the world. Sometimes when you live in your own little part of the world, you forget how big the world is πŸ™‚

This is what I sent off to my penpal πŸ™‚ Some meal tabs on this cute love stationery πŸ™‚

To cross or not to cross

Hi all,

I have noticed that there are a lot of cross designs on clothes lately. I guess it probably gives a more funky look. I tried on two versions from Temp- this white version with gold crosses

and this black version with gold crosses

Which do you prefer? To cross or not to cross?Β 

Happy New Year

Hi all,

For those who celebrate Chinese New Year πŸ™‚ Wish you all a happy one πŸ™‚ Mine will be spent gorging on lots of food and just catching up with friends and family πŸ™‚ We already did a huge hot pot – lines of tables with 6 hot pots in a row and ate lots of fish balls and meat balls πŸ™‚

This is inspired by CNY – I did half red and half orange diagonally with yellow dots on the border line.

There was also a big festival where I live and they have night markets and rides.

Egg tarts

They sell these potato twists – They twist the potato into a spiral and deep fry and add what ever flavorings you like πŸ™‚

They also have these crazy car rides that go out and around ~ I can’t handle it – hehe

Have a happy weekend everyone and for those who celebrate CNY let me know what you guys do πŸ™‚


Hi all,

I have been shopping a lot more lately and I picked up this LOVE tshirt. I think I have a thing for tee shirts – I do have a lot of them and I do feel comfortable in them as well πŸ™‚ I also picked up this leopard? skirt. I’m not really sure of the pattern on it but it’s a new favourite of mine πŸ™‚





I paired the skirt with my Ann Taylor ruffle top and black tights

Oreo cupcake

Look at how delicious this Oreo cupcake is! We celebrated my friend’s birthday at a Korean restaurant and then surprised her with all these little cupcakes πŸ™‚ We also had yum cha for my dad’s birthday and stuffed our faces!

I love food and shopping!!

Hope you had Β a great weekend πŸ™‚ What did you guys get up to?
