Fine Dining

This weekend was mine and my boyfriend's 1 year Anniversary. Our time together has seemed to fly by sooo quickly and I am so grateful for him daily. 
We started off our morning chowing down some eggs benny (my all time favourite brekky) at a small cafe in Manly just out of Brisbane City and walking the flea markets. 

He surprised me by taking me to Saks at Marina Mirage for dinner. 
 Find the website here to browse the menu 

The food was really great considering the price, I had the Pork Cutlet and we enjoyed watching the sunset over the boats sipping on cocktails (completely delish btw)
Here are some photos of our evening

I wore a simple kookai top and cameo skirt with a pair of black flats. 

Much Love

Cocktails & Red Lips

TGIF - Friday night was spent sipping vodka sodas and cocktails with a group of girlfriends at the chick' est lounge bar on the Gold Coast, Stingray. 
Here is what I wore 

 The skirt (which I have shown you all before) is a beautiful little once off which came in two colours, fortunately for me I own both of those.
The shoes are plain black wedges by Betts which are honestly the most comfortable I own despite the height! I know you can't buy these in stores any longer. 
The Cuff Is from Diva. 
The Bodysuit Is by Shakuhachi and as pictured below also comes in black.

On my face! 

I wore my normal Estee Lauder liquid Double Wear with a powder veil, peachy blush with a natural looking eye shadow combo and winged liner, I also wore eye lashes and I use the Manicare brand which are a really good affordable lash.
I sported a bold lip: Napoleon Perdis Devine goddess range in Calypso which I find brings out a pink tone also. 

Tip: Before I go out I always apply a coat of Sugar Baby, this is a good quick fix if you haven't had time to get a tan before heading out on the town and you want a nice glow. 

I love doing 'what I wore' posts, I hope you love them too.

OOTD Thursday! 



I wanted to share with you all my outfit of the day,  I  didn't do anything too out of the norm today; It was just a normal Thursday at the office. I do work in a corporate office but like to change up my style and outfits quite alot. 

Today I wore a black cape Lollita top which is longer at the back with cool cut out parts that aren't too revealing but show enough to be flattering over the shoulder and back region, with a beautiful Mika and Gala knitted skirt (a very different piece for my wardrobe) styled with some dark black stockings to help fight the cold air conditioning and a pair of plain black flats I picked up from Target, which may I add are much more comfortable to walk around the office in rather then heels!  

I wore one of my favorite gold chains from Collete, I really like the length of this piece and it has proven not to wear like other chains I have purchased, and I do really recommend adding a few of these to your selection if you don't have the funds to get the more up market chains. 
Some little scull earrings and my normal Pandora bracelet & Guess watch in Gold. 

The main Attraction being my gorgeous Nine West handbag. I have had this handbag for a little over a year now and yes It does have a little bit of wear and tear but I really cannot let it go just yet. I love the dynamics of the colours, the amount of zipper pockets without making it look too over done and also the shoulder strap option and the smaller handled option. 
For those of you that have had the honour of owning a handbag with a shoulder strap really will know what I'm talking about when I say Luxury

I hope you all like what I wore today, If you have any questions about the pieces I am wearing please feel free to leave a comment in the box below and I will answer your questions as best I can. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. 

Much Love

Christmas Isn't Too Far Away!

Along with my Christmas gift and wish list comes a little Christmas decor - Unfortunately these holidays I don't have the room and it seems the Decor for my little home this year. Arguably I am very, very sad about this due to the nature of the Holiday spirit!! 

It seems that I am just going to have to drool over my last year's tree and all of my favorite blogger's decor... Yes ... Everyone elses but my own... Very upsetting really!

Needless to say here are some images of my Holidays last year, including the one and only Chanel Christmas tree that I loved hand making oh so much.

My sister's little girl Mo Mo (maltese) & My hansom little man Bear (pomeranian) 
On Christmas Day!

- What have you all got planned for your Christmas Holidays this year? 
Much love

A little bit of blazer love! 

Hello ladies, I'm not going to lie I do have quite a wide selection of blazers that I have acquired over quite a period of time. I find that the perfect blazer can add so much diversity to an outfit and if you have the right one can be paired with almost any piece in your closet. 
The piece I'm going to share with you today came to me by sheer luck while I was on the eBay hunt for the most beautiful gold Bardot blazer that was and still is sold out in stores and unfortunately I have still not managed to get my hands on!! 
Anyway more to the point here as some snaps for you all to dribble over on your Sunday evening. 

The 'by accident' Mink Pink blazer, styled with a one of a kind (comes in both colours and I own both) skirt from a little boutique, plain black scooped back leotard, Novo boots and cross chains I snapped up from Dissh. 

Sorry for the quality of the second image, It was taken on a girls night via Iphone and Isn't very clear.

Annddddd the beautiful Bardot number - I have added the second image I came across online so you could all see how the Jacket sits whilst on. 

I hope you have all enjoyed this little piece, I do have quite a few blazers on my wish list currently however due to the season, cannot justify a blazer haul just yet.

Music to My Ears & So On and So Forth

Music To My Ears & So On and So Forth


Hey Bloggers!! I thought I would do a quick update for you all while I have a spare minute!
Lately I have been working a lot among other things, From Halloween onwards it always seems like the busiest time of year for me and with Holidays and being social comes eating and drinking alot - I must admit I have still been eating really well lately in preparation for the Holidays so I can sit back and relax as I prefer a more 80 - 20 approach to my diet and lifestyle.
I am trying to change my diet up and have cut out all processed and high GI sugars, After the first four days the head aches seemed to have left me alone and I am now notices some changes in my body. 
Who of you is cutting the sugar with me? I would love to hear your journey so far also! 

My favorite part of the day is when I get some 'me' time at the gym. 
Here is what is currently on my playlist - This band is a sure gem! 

Also I am now on Pinterest!! Follow me :)

I'm sorry for the short post but I will drop in again in a day or so!! 

Much Love,

A Perfect Spring to Summer Piece

A perfect Spring to Summer Piece 


I wanted to share with you all my current most loved purchase! I have been wanting to purchase this piece for the past... I don't know how long.. Forever! And finally It came on sale and ended up being a total steal, I believe it was from the first collection and I managed to save quite a lot of money on it. 
Okay... so here it is!! 
The Estelle 

This gorgeous piece is Australian designed and made by White Sands Swimwear, it is the most luxurious swimmer material I have ever had the liberty of getting my hands on. 

Not only did i buy this piece to laze around on the beach in I think it will double great coming into Summer Festival Season. 

I have styled this particular piece with my favorite pair of Mink Pink high wasted shorts 

Some pieces of my own pictured here. 

I really love making my own designs, wearing them and seeing them on other people, for Summer nights and Festival Shenanigans I have been known to be someone who layers these cute pieces however as the Estelle Swim piece has the detailed belt attached I think this outfit is in need of only some extra small details. 

You will be more then likely seeing me In this styled number as we are fast approaching some of my favorite Summer Festivals! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I am so happy I have finally been able to introduce you all to some of my own designs. 

Lots of Love,

- Jacqueline xx
