floral stylewe dress

Shop similar items: I don’t usually put much thought into the material of the clothing I wear. If it looks decent and I don’t break out in hives or anything from it, I’m good to go. However, since I’ve been perusing the website StyleWe, my taste in material is starting to evolve just the tiniest bit. This dress is from StyleWe, but it’s not the only thing in my closet from them. I do have a few other items, all… Read more »

godaddy stock beach image

Guest post by Carl Turner It’s never too early to start planning for your next vacation, especially if it’s during the holiday season. The holidays are always one of the busiest travel times of the year, and, rather than spend another year enduring stressful family situations, more and more people are using their days off as an opportunity to get some much-needed rest and relaxation. But where to go? When to go? When to book a flight to Fiji or… Read more »

Review Australia

  Ok, let me start off by saying I’m not here to start a war or tell you not to shop at ModCloth. However, after the news broke that ModCloth was bought out by Jet.com and Walmart, I’ve been getting this question pretty frequently, “What other online stores are out there like ModCloth?” So, I figured putting together a list of some websites that are similar to ModCloth might be useful! Though I still like ModCloth, I’ve personally started looking… Read more »

We're moving!

Yep, you read that title right. We are moving all the way across the world yet again! Don’t worry, we’re just as surprised as you. We really thought we were going to be calling Australia home for much longer than 6 months. But hey, no complaints here! We’re all for new adventures. We actually just squared away the last of the details yesterday, so now I can say with certainty we are moving to Rosario, Argentina on April 8th! It’s… Read more »

tobi dress

This dress pushed me as far out of my comfort zone as I have ever gone in the style department! I know on the surface it doesn’t look all that crazy, but the cut of it posed some interesting issues in the bra department. However, I really do love the cut of this dress. I have never worn anything with quite so open of a back, but it was fun for a change. And it was a special occasion, after… Read more »

Sharon-Lee brows

  There were a couple of things that happened with this year’s Oscars that had people talking. One was obviously the big Best Picture Award snafu. And another was the rumor that Leonardo DiCaprio allegedly flew an eyebrow artist 7,500 miles (from Sydney to LA) to have his brows perfect for the event. (At least that’s what we were talking about here in Sydney.) And that eyebrow artist was said to be Sharon-Lee Hamilton. While that may or may not… Read more »

mahi-mahi

I mentioned in a blog post last week that my hubbie and I were going Marlin fishing! We’ve been trying to go for a couple months now, but the weather hasn’t been cooperating. But last week, we finally had one good day, and we took full advantage of it. Unfortunately, we didn’t actually catch any Marlin. But hey, that’s fishing! You can’t catch one every time! We did, however, catch some Mahi-Mahi…which is what my husband and I are holding… Read more »

Fashionmia polka dot flare dress

Shop similar items: This is one outfit I had pictured a petticoat going well with. I had actually ordered a black one thinking I would pair it with this dress. However, once I tried it on, much to my dismay, this was one fit and flare dress that looked better on its own without a petticoat. Oh, well! I’ll figure this petticoat thing out eventually, haha. But I was grateful to have another dress with sleeves to wear! We’re not… Read more »

kate spade bag

About a month ago, I had an incident with a red coat from MakemeChic that had bled on my white Kate Spade bag. (If you missed the post, click here.) I was SO mad about it. I adore this bag, and I had honestly thought I ruined it. BUT, fortunately, it was able to be saved. It obviously took a long time for Lawrence Cleaners to get the stain out, but they were able to remove it. THANK GOD. And… Read more »

Tobi black wrap dress

The black dress is a wardrobe staple that lives in many women’s closets. It’s the dress you grab when you want to feel a little extra sexy for a special occasion. The dress that clings in allll the right places. And it never goes out of style. However, I came to the realization that I did not currently own a single black dress. (Plenty of dresses – just no slinky, black ones.) So, it was time to change that! This… Read more »

Happy as a Lark

Meet Laurie! She’s this month’s Featured Fashionista and the incredibly artistic founder of the blog “Happy as a Lark.” I adore following Laurie’s posts because she has a style after my own heart. I love how effortlessly she layers her daily outfits for the chilly Minnesota winters, and the gorgeous dresses she features in the summer! Laurie doesn’t just feature her outfit posts, though! She also gives us little glimpses into her daily life in the Minneapolis area (I really… Read more »

shein black and white high waisted shorts

Shop the look: Ok, admittedly, in today’s day and age, these shorts aren’t all that short. They feel short to me….and for some reason, I can’t get that song “Short Shorts” by The Royal Teens out of my head this week, haha. But hey! At least my butt cheeks are covered, haha. And oh my goodness gracious! These are the most comfortable pair of shorts I now own – hands down. They are baggy in all the right places and… Read more »

jet lag

  Guest post by Olivia Bourke Jet Lag Jet lag is one substantial drawback of traveling that can affect you upon arrival at either destination. This can typically ruin the first few moments of your trip, depending on how horrid it may be. Traveling across many time zones can be daunting for the body and mind. Jet lag causes fatigue and insomnia which leads to irritation, disorientation, loss of concentration and headaches. The body is naturally in sync and has… Read more »

team instinct outfit

Shop the look:   I know what you’re probably thinking…”Come on! Wasn’t the Pokémon Go craze going on months ago? Why are you bringing it up again?” And that, my friends, is because this weekend Niantic released the “Gen 2” Pokémon. So, there’s a whole bunch of adorable new Pokémon to catch! And Pokémon fans are quite excited! I never really stopped playing the game. My husband and I both enjoy it. But, recently, we weren’t playing as much as… Read more »

jd williams lace dress

I have really come to enjoy wishlist posts lately. It’s a fun way of window shopping for me…since I like to do all my shopping from the comfort of my couch, haha. And we’re currently getting one of the worst thunderstorms I’ve experienced since moving to Sydney, so I won’t be doing any actual window shopping today anyways. (Jeez! The building next to me was just struck by lightning – complete with a poof of smoke!) Yep, I’m staying in… Read more »

polka dot dress and white petticoat

Shop the look: Guys! I did it! I finally invested in some petticoats…and I am in love. Why didn’t I try these babies sooner? They’re so fun! Around 7 months ago I did a post with this dress and wondered if it wouldn’t benefit from a petticoat. Some folks let me know petticoats weren’t for them (and that’s cool too, they are an acquired taste!), and some responded by shouting, “Yes! Just get the petticoat!” It clearly took me a… Read more »

great barrier reef

My experience snorkeling The Great Barrier Reef was the stuff dreams are made of. I honestly don’t feel this post will do the day justice, but I hate to say “you had to be there” in a travel post. Haha. So, I will do my best to show just how awesome this day was…complete with pretty pictures and videos and some fun tips! And if you find yourself traveling to Cairns to check out The Great Barrier Reef – you’ll… Read more »

shein metallic skirt

Admittedly, I had gotten a bit lazy about getting my posts featured on Independent Fashion Blogger’s Links à la Mode…but this week, I’m back on the list with my post “Pearls, Bows & Metallic Skirts.” Yippee! And if you need a refresher on what Links à la Mode is…it’s a weekly roundup of the best blog posts selected by the site, Independent Fashion Bloggers. (You can read the full guidelines for submitting your posts to IFB, here.) Then, if you’re… Read more »

Koala Gardens Kuranda

  Now we’re getting to the fun stuff! Day 2 of our trip to Cairns was amazing! Now, you might have never heard of the town of Kuranda until now. I certainly hadn’t until I booked this trip…but honestly, this day was just as much fun for me as the Great Barrier Reef (more on that on Monday)! And I was able to bring coffee with me, so it really started well. Haha. Kuranda Scenic Railway The day began with… Read more »

red floral dress

Shop the look: You must think I’m crazy for featuring a red dress on here so shortly after my red coat fiasco. Haha. But don’t worry, this dress didn’t bleed on anything, and I had actually taken these photos nearly a month ago…but just hadn’t had a chance to share them! That’s why my purse is also in these photos. As of right now, it’s still at the cleaners. Apparently, they have a lot of handbags to try and clean… Read more »

rex lookout

I hate to keep being such a Negative Nancy on the blog (two Mondays in a row – sorry!), but I really don’t want anyone else to make the same mistakes I did if I can help it. And I promise next Monday’s post will be all rainbows and sunshine filled with a giveaway! But before we get to that, I’m first going to do my best to convince you why you shouldn’t waste a precious day in Cairns doing… Read more »

bondi dragonfly mural

Shop the look:   Guilty as a charged, folks! I know it’s been less than a month since you last saw this skirt…and I do try to do a slightly better job of not being a repeat offender when it comes to my outfit posts. Not to say that I don’t feature the same clothing items on here again and again. I just generally try to space out statement pieces a few months at a time. However, I couldn’t stop… Read more »

bondi icebergs

You might not have heard of Icebergs until now, but chances are you’ve seen photos of their iconic oceanside swimming pool. And to say they have some of the best dining views in Sydney, would be an understatement! I decided to dedicate an entire post to Icebergs Dining Room & Bar because it was one of the questions I was asked most when I was home for the holidays. “Have you been to that restaurant in Sydney with the oceanside… Read more »

red coat

**UPDATE: This issue has been resolved! MakemeChic was a dream to work with regarding this issue, and the cleaners were able to remove the stain! I have been fully reimbursed for all damages. Click here for more details. I have never been so mad about an online order in my life, until now. It might have been a better idea for me to sleep on this post before I published it…but I think getting my emotions out on here, regarding… Read more »

scratch off map of the world

This year for Christmas I received a fun gift from my sister and brother in law. It’s a poster that is a map of the world, and you can scratch off the countries on the map that you’ve visited. Pretty neat, right? I love it! But it also made me realize that I have A LOT of countries left to “scratch off.” And while I do clothing wishlists pretty frequently, I thought it would be fun to start doing a… Read more »
