Here they are! These are the harems I bought online, BUT still haven't mustered up the courage to wear them out..... I would prob wear it with a looser and a little longer top but dunno when that's going to happen. Oh yeah and the beauties on my feet were the buy of the year! Cheapamundo!!

I love having breaky out at lovely cafes surrounded by loved ones. That's exactly what I did the other day. My sisters and I went to our favourite cafe in Brunswick and had a HUGE breaky! Yummmmmmmmmmmm. Just as well I wore this stretchy, jersey skirt to allow for some room......:)

Do you guys regularly change your interiors?? Even something as simple as a shelf?? Well I try to but lately I have been really lazy. This is my latest design. Grouping similar materials, ie glassware. The fish is my boys fish which they call Dragon! :) Oh yeah and I can't take credit for the cranes either. My eight year old son loves Origami so you will find all sorts of paper craft around the home.
I would love for you guys to send me pics of whats on your shelf. It's interesting to see how creative pple are. Please send me some happy snaps and who knows if there's one I love you just might win a prize. Pass the word around and you must be a follower. Email me your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, almost anyway. On the weekend my family and I went to three festivals! Yep you heard it right, we hopped from one to the other. We started the day off out our local Spring festa which the boys really enjoyed. Then we moved onto the Festival Indonesia 'Jakarta in Melbourne' festival. I enjoyed that as I picked up some brochures on some lovely resorts in Nusa Dua, which I will def be researching soon, even if my heart lies in Ubud! There was also a cute ice carving of a Kangaroo and its joey.
Our final destination was the North Melbourne festival, which we hardly hung around for. So as you can see we had a pretty jam packed day so I needed to be comfy and casual which you can see in the photo. Nothing to flash!

Me and my nautical inspired outfit. These shoes are newbies. I realised that most of my shoes are either black, brown or silver. So I decided to try a new colour and I must say I'm loving them. So nautical - red, white and blue coupled with stripe, and voila!

Yesterday I went to the market in Hawthorn. It's a secondhand, vintage and designer market. You can find some real goodies there, if your nice and early. Which I was, hehehe. The lovely items did seem a little more pricier this time round, however I did snap a bargain. This dress I'm wearing is what I bought. The thing that I liked about it, apart from it being neutrals was that it is a little longer on the back hem. It's little touches like that, that I love!
Home again home again jiggity jig!

Take a look at this stylish mamma! Seriously, this is Ebru Oz from Sorayya Design. Let me tell you every time I see her she is in something different and something chic. Her style looks effortless but l can speak on behalf of her that she puts A LOT of thought into her outfits. Which is what we should all do! Ebru may look dapper in her get up but the thing that is fab about her is that she always manages to make them Hijabi friendly outfits, modesty and trendy is not an easy thing to achieve. This outfit is one of my favourites with red & black being the main colours, toned down with neutral shoes and a scarf. Now we all know that neutral/nude heels are the most ideal shoe to wear with an outfit don't we? YESSS I hear you all saying (I hope). It gives the illusion of longer legs.
Enjoy these pictures of the lovely lady in more of her funky, stylish, chic and trendy outfits.

It looks like this Country Road Jersey skirt is going to be a keeper! It seems I cant get it off, it's just so damn comfy. It's a good thing but it can also become a bad thing, when all I start wearing is this skirt. Today I sorta went for the ethnic look with m Indian slippers which I love.

Ohhh goodness I am loving these, ALL of these!!! It seems leather and studs are going to be around for a long while. So l recommend investing in a good quality leather jacket, with studs if you have the guts! Otherwise a leather jacket in a cut that suits your body type is a worthwhile investment. Burberry's new collections has my tongue wagging as not only is it gorgeous leather with studs but in my fave colour! Beige!! And l love the pop of colour in the outfits (turquoise belt and clutches).

I'm loving the warm sunshine, though I must say I'm dreading the hot hot summer. These new dresses that are coming out with the optional ruching are fab. I call the copy cat sass & bide outfits! Hahahaha, you gotta admit that's what they are. Anyway what I love about them is that you can wear something under them to create a different look all together like I have done. It's not very obvious in these pics but they are my S & B zebra leggings which my hubby says look like tights with holes in the them. You gotta love the male species....
