aloha, sneak peak

alohaa! got back from hawaii yesterday afternoon after spending 10 beautiful days in waikiki. i've got a tan which resembles the sydney summers i remember (i don't know what has happened to summer this year. hiatus or something?) and as you can see, i did plenty of shopping! michael kors and i had quite the love affair, and i may have had some little flings with sephora & victoria's secret on the side. will post my new purchases tomorrow as i'm currently at uni sitting my first lecture of the year! talk about getting straight back into the swing of things.. lord help me!

that loving feeling

happy lovers day! feeling a bit lonely as my boyfriend is currently in boulder, colorado with his best mate enjoying the snow, but i'll be on my way to see him tomorrow in hawaii! will post as much as i can while i'm there, but you can expect a nice big post when i'm home in 10 days time too. hope everyone's feeling loved and content - beyond all the commercialised crap, it can actually be a really worthwhile day.. show someone that you really do care! go on.. spread the luuurve.

ps. photos from the adorable little google valentines day film.. head on over and click play on the logo.

hipster saturday.

last night the girls from work and i got together to celebrate vessy's 20th birthday at the winery in surry hills. if you haven't been - GO! the food is out of this world and the cocktails are absolutely fabulous, the service flawless and the place itself has a great quirky little vibe. we always tease vessy about being a little bit hipster in her fashion taste, and so to dedicate the night to her we all dressed up in our very best floral dresses, bandana's and hipster glasses, which she absolutely adored!
1. the menu had the most irresistable choices
2. the beginning of the cocktails - we definitely tried a few...
3. a table full of fabulous food
4 & 10. the BEST cocktail i have ever had, hands down. light and bubbly with a beautiful subtle touch of rosewater, it was so refreshing and the perfect summer drink
5. getting my hipster on with one of my beautiful girls - she's got legs to rival a victoria's secret model
6. rose sangria - so, so yum. get this too.
7. my dinner - pumpkin, ricotta & sage ravioli with burnt butter. it was out of this world!
8. chorizo & veal sausage roll and stuffed mushrooms
9. summer chicken salad
11. one of the quirky little touches that make it so unique
12. my dessert - double chocolate brownie with fairy floss. holy s&*t. i have no words.
13. date & banana pudding with butterscotch sauce. again, no words.
14. cheesecake with lime marscapone. 
15. the beautiful birthday girl with her sparkler bellini!
16. myself and the birthday girl
17. the stumble to the car - proof of a great night out!

style crush

google images, styled by phillips

i've developed a little bit of a style crush on model-turned-jewellery-designer nikki phillips. she has a beautiful blog which documents a highly enviable wardrobe and social life.. i thoroughly enjoy living a socialite life through it! if you haven't checked it out, it's called styled by phillips but don't blame me when you start getting serious clothing envy. she's consistently got sneak previews from designers for upcoming collections, and with her stunning body, she looks amazing in all of them! well worth having a look...

the sunday cut

they all hate us

just a few of my favourites from the past week, off the incredible 'they all hate us' blog. i think it's clear i'm still obsessing over leather pants.. and miranda. just a lil' bit. had a great night out with the girls from work last night, will post the photos later today!

i'm getting a little impatient.

on the 15th of february, i will be lying on that beach, in my new seafolly bikini, with my new ray-ban sunnies, lapping up the rays and joyfully awaiting the arrival of my boyfriend after being apart for 3 and a half weeks.
bring on paradise!

the a/w 12 files: come as you are


adding to the a/w files is the 'come as you are' collection from stylestalker. i have been anticipating this collection for SO long! i've already bought two items (it was released online this morning!) and i'll be making them a feature in the clothes i wear in hawaii. i love the sequins, metallics and the beautiful blue toned print - so on trend. it's exactly what i'd expect from the stylestalker girls - and i mean that in the best way possible. my expectations have been exceeded further and beyond than i thought possible!
