Harlow_Stellar-Wrap-DressWRAPPING UP IN … Stellar Wrap Dress from Harlow
I’ve recently rediscovered my love for wrap dresses – as a busty lady, I have to say that they make my boobs look amazing! I love this patterned one from Harlow, these are perfect blues for spring. Grab this dress for AUD $189 here, and be sure to check out Harlow’s spring/summer lookbook.

WATCHING … Rick Owens Spring 2014 Womenswear Show at Paris Fashion Week
Rick Owens‘ show at Paris Fashion Week was amazing! The designer used women who were a part of the Step With Momentum dance squad instead of the usual hyper thin models that grace the runway, and it was refreshing to see women of all shapes, sizes and races.  Instead of the usual catwalk show that sees models sashaying up and down the runway, attendees were treated to a breathtaking performance by the  dancers, who were dressed in Rick Owens Spring 2014 Ready To Wear collection. This is easily the coolest fashion show I’ve seen, and those outfits are amazing.  Please could we have more performance based shows here?

Little-Bird-UnbakeryEATING AT … Little Bird Organics
I’m lactose and gluten intolerant and so obviously have to be really careful about what I eat so that I don’t get sick.  I never imagined that there would be a café where I’d be able to eat everything on the menu! Until I visited Little Bird, that is! Their food is all organic, mostly raw and absolutely delicious. Not to mention dairy, gluten and sugar free. This is my new fave hangout (so if you’re coming to have a meeting with me then chances are that we’ll be meeting at Little Bird), and you can find them in Kingsland and Ponsonby – check out their website for details.

ECOYA CHRISTMAS Madison

RELAXING WITH … ECOYA’s Limited Edition Christmas Collection: Memories Unleashed
Just to freak you out, it’s less than three months until Christmas. Which means that you’ll be seeing delicious things like these ECOYA candles in stores as of right now, hurray! There are two fabulous scents to choose from in the Madison Jar candles: Caramelised Plum Pudding, which is absolutely divine and makes the whole room smell warm and Christmas-y and amazing; and Fresh Pine Needles, which I am saving for closer to Christmas because while I love the smell of pine trees (which this candle has captured perfectly), I’m allergic to them – this candle means I can have my fake tree and still enjoy the scent of the real thing without all the sneezing! Perfect solution.  You can pick up these candles (which come in gorgeous boxes, making them super easy to gift wrap) for $49.95 from ECOYA stockists or on their website.

Obi Dynamo Drape Shirt $249LAYERING UP … Obi Dynamo Drape Shirt $249
Drapey clothes are perfect for warmer months (which are hopefully imminent!) when you want to keep cool and don’t want to have tighter clothing that might feel a bit too restrictive. I love this striped shirt from NZ brand Obi, find it in store for $249.
