Living In Style at ADGE Apartments

Tuesday, April 21, 2015


Last week I had the pleasure of staying at ADGE Boutique Apartment Hotel in Sydney during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. You may already know I have a soft spot for quirky prints and bright colours, so you could imagine my excitement when I first took a glimpse at the rainbow floor inside our city viewing apartment- unreal! Complete with a smeg fridge, a cartoon mural in the foyer and coconuts on arrival, I knew instantly that this hotel was a rare gem.

During my stay, when I wasn't busy running between fashion shows and appointments, I was sitting sky high, sun steaming in, working from the kitchen table at ADGE. Inspiring and eclectic, it was the ultimate space for a working holiday.  The service at ADGE always went that little bit extra- think chocolate surprises on your pillow at turndown and inspiring quotes to brighten your morning.  

Located in the city-fringe suburb of Surry Hills, it was also just a stones throw away from some of my favourite places to hang: The Winery, Cafe Pieno and Kawa.

Why You Need A Flannel Shirt In Your Life

Friday, April 17, 2015

Every girl needs at least one shirt in their life this season- preferably with a longer hemline- for those days when you really just don't feel like wearing pants. For a casual-meets-cool vibe, elevate your shirt with a cute knit beanie and black lace cami. Then give your frame some shape by tying a denim jacket around your waist. In the dead of winter, when you're not too keen to brave bare legs, pair your shirt back with black stockings or your favourite boyfriend jeans.  

While I'm all about wearing this one during the day, nothing beats sitting on the couch watching the rain while curled up in your oversized shirt and cosy ribbed knee-high socks.

Backstage Beauty at MBFWA 2015

Thursday, April 16, 2015

THE 2015 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia is well underway in Sydney, and while all eyes should be on the runway, there just something so magical about stepping backstage to take a look at the hero hair and beauty trends each season. From the Barbie pink lips at Michael Lo Sordo to the brushed up brows at Aje and Ellery's cool-girl ponytail, it's safe to say, these easy-to-master looks will will be on high rotation when it comes to my everyday beauty mantra.

En route to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia in this bright yellow Honda Jazz. 

Even though we're sitting in the car it's still important to look good, right? I've styled my everyday jeans back with a cute crop and on point blazer. Too easy.

Your Winter Sorted

Monday, April 06, 2015

THE cold spell of winter is (sadly) looming here in Australia. It's finally time to hang up our flirty sundresses and straw fedoras, and rotate our go-to winter pieces to the front of our wardrobe. If you need a little pick-me-up, take cue from my must-have winter gems below. 

The colour palette: Winter has never looked so fresh. To play off the grey skies, opt for a neutral palette of cream, white, tan and dove grey. Sure, black and white makes a strong street statement, but there's something so refreshing about the hue that comes between them. For a pop of colour, pale pink and baby blue are your new best friends. 

Oversized Outerwear Love: The ultimate way to stay warm. Pair your polished pieces with an oversized cashmere blend coat from Mique The Label. 

The Basics: When it comes to textured basics, Cotton On Body have you sorted. Their Icons Redefined Collection features an endless array of camis, tees and midi dresses. 

The accessories: Take your outfit to cool-girl-territory with ankle boots and a cute knit beanie from Sportsgirl.
