Gemma Ward for Country Road

Even the most cynical of people can – surely – appreciate the pure beauty of Country Road’s latest promotion clip. Stunning in many respects – the scenery, the cinematography, the people (Gemma and precious baby Naia)… And, of course, the clothing.

Gain an extra appreciation for life’s little blessings by watching the clip here.

Sure rivals the previous promotional debut by the Australian retailers, where the equally gorgeous Isabel Lucas models the country side, in all it’s rawness.

Soak up that Zen!Gemma-Ward-Country-Road

White out: Australian Fashion week

I know, I know white for Summer is almost as cliche as florals for Spring. But when it is reinvented in many different ways by many different designers I must say it does not come across as cliche. White was seen everywhere at Mercedez Benz Fashion Week in Sydney almost a month ago (I know this post is a bit late) As we farewell to the last of our Summer, it is well and truly Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere I can’t help but plan my Summer wardrobe and yes it is going to involve a lot of white. It may not be the most practical colour out there but there is something refreshing about an all white look. Some of the designers highlighting this trend for the eventually coming Summer were Toni Maticeviski, Alex Perry, Alice McCall, Dion Lee, Ellery and Ginger and Smart.

Which one? Plain or leopard Tony Bianco


Ahh to hard to choose. Sneakers, runners, slides, espadrilles (any kind of flat casual shoe for that matter seems to be having its moment right now). The lasted one that I am obsessing over is the Tony Bianco Rule Sneaker. There are two rather similar but oh so different versions which I can’t choose from. The plain black leather and the black leather with leopard. This is when my love for leopard interferes with my logic. Being that the plain leather version will go with more  (of course) but I can’t help but love the leather and leopard version. Just that little hint of leopard. I could hide it right, therefore getting a two in one combo with the leopard version. What one would you pick?

Beauty: Dying to try



I have been lusting over the Grown Alchemist range every since it popped up in Russh magazine a few years ago. Having tested them but not yet to add to my collection. Although I feel it happening very soon. There are a few stand out products for me and this is one. Reducing pore size is which captured my attention as I was browsing through the many products. As far as I can tell free shipping to New Zealand wit purchases over $30. On another note how beautiful is the packaging.

Ahh leather

Loving this amazing Aussie label Holystone. I just can’t get sick of leather.

I need the baggy leather pants above.
