[T-B/L-R] Harbour Bridge - MBFFS - MBFFS Festival Hub - The Opera House 

 I'm back!

I had a great trip to Sydney last week. It was a well needed trip, to relax and soak up a different place. I got to attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney; seeing the Review of Australian Fashion Week and the Myer Designer Show. With my fingers crossed, the weather managed to stay sunny and bright for the entire trip! It helped when walking around the Harbour, Oxford Street and the like.

I'll share more of my trip tomorrow! 

I love love love a good trip. I think they are good to a. escape life for a little bit, b. relax and shop and c. to get some perspective and clarity. This trip was great to put some things into place for me; about the future, prospects and more. I want me some more trips now! 


VMAs 2011

Beyonce - My Top Look. Revealing her young baby bump, Beyonce wore a coral draped Lanvin Fall 2011 dress. The look is very chic and elegant and suits well for Beyonce's bump.

Britney Spears
 - In Moschino, Spears was the big tribute star for this year's VMAs. Spears looks great in the sequinned romper, finishing off her look she added a pair of black Gina calf boots.

Demi Lovato - Showing off her great curves in a silver Mandalay dress, Lovato presented at the VMAs this year. The details on the dress are tres amazing, they help to accentuate Lovato's killer body.

Kelly Rowland - One of my favourite looks, Rowland was in a Falguni & Shane Peacock Fall 2011 mini dress. Classic Falguni & Shane Peacock, the dress features metallic embellishments and a feathered skirt. Love love love!

Zoe Saldana - Rocking it out on the red carpet in a Barbara Bui Fall 2011 LBD, Saldana channels effortless chic. The mini dress fits Saldana to a tee!

[T-B/L-R] Style Diary shots, cupcaking, cocktails and coffee!

Just my luck.. literally

My laptop is broken (*sniff). Think Sex and the City when Carrie gets the 'sad mac', I was mortified when I turned on my laptop only to have to turn blue and then restart and then turn blue... and then restart. Not happy. Its thrown off my posts last week and no doubt till I get it fixed or replaced. Ironically I was planning to get a hard drive to back up my work on the weekend... damn I was too late!

Busy with uni and work, I'm trying to juggle everything (and then laptop issues) I managed to catch up with my lovelies for food and conversations and cocktails. Fun fun fun. 

This week I'm getting ready for Sydney! Fashion Week, Family and fingers crossed some shopping!

Luck. I believe in it at times. And then other times I think it's silly.
I have this ring, and when I wear it I think things tend to go my way. Though I don't wear it a lot as not to waste my luck. Weird no?
 Maybe I should believe it in a tad bit more. Damn sad PC...

Style Diary - My Big Mac

I love love love me some outerwear.

With it being winter, majority of the time when I go to work or to uni I like to throw on a big jacket. I love love love how it covers everything so all I have to do is pair it with a scarf and some pants. The trench coat is my current fave, being long and having a waistband to add some shape to the silhouette its a perfect piece for me.

Now I have this Machintosh Coat which I got from London. It was apart of the Lanvin ♥'s H&M collection, I picked it up from Oxford Street. It's a large coat with with a thin tie on the waist. I haven't really worn the piece yet, just because it is very intense coat. But now come winter I'm bringing it out!

 [T-B/L-R] Vogue/Harper's Bazaar-ing, Will & Grace-ing and Cake...and Cake!

I started my first day of my last semester of uni.

This week uni started. Hopefully my last semester of my course, I'm eagerly waiting my completion! As it is slowly becoming more and more final that it is my final semester my plans for the future are looming and need to be sorted out. I've got so many ideas of what I want to do that it's somewhat hard to decide one the most appropriate one.

With uni on the brain, I've gotta get some balance. Enjoying the sun and with good magazines. Its a great way for me to wind down from a busy day, and then if I get bored I stocked up on Will & Grace so I've got no excuse.

I had two 21st birthdays on the weekend. Its nice to get all dressed up for these events. Its funny how in high school I used to wonder about the days when I'd be 21 and now fast forward a few years and I'm at that stage where everyone is hitting their 21st.

I consider that we begin things at the end of another. Though we live on life I believe that we can pack as much or as little as we want to. We have the ability to open doors and close those behind. The only thing that does stop us is the fear of what is on the otherside, the fear that you lack confidence or ability. Life to me is all about the beginnings; the more the merrier. 



Looks of the Week - 8-14th August 2011

Anne Hathaway - In New York for the premiere of her new film 'One Day', Hathaway wore a black Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 dress. The skirt of the dress is beautifully flared out and the embellished bust is to die for.
