Luxe Leather

As much as I love the warmth of summer time, I have to admit, being on the cusp of a new, chilly season is also exciting. The new fashion and accessories are already starting to emerge and I am loving some of the new season trends including the injection of leather into a lot of my favourite brands Autumn/Winter ranges.

These luxe leather pieces are new season Kookai from their 'Colour of Night' collection. Just gorgeous. How on trend is the leather Polo cap? Sporty chic? Tick!

"Spice Up Your Life" one more time?

I have just read online that the Spice Girls may be touring Australia in 2014!

 Image source

According to The Australian, this morning on the Kyle and Jackie-O radio show on 2DayFM Jackie-O reported that she had heard from a very, very reliable source that the girls would be touring our shores in 2014.

** Cue excited school girl screams!! **

There has been nothing reported 'officially' from the girls or their reps so at this stage it is only speculation but I am already crossing my fingers and toes that this time 'round the girls will pull through!

I would pay all the money in the world (...OK, maybe all the money in my small savings account) to get a ticket to see the 'Girl Power' routine from the girls again. I am a HUGE fan from way back and would love nothing more than to get my school-girlfriends back together to sing a long to our favourite Spice Girl pop songs of the 90's!

Despite all of the 'dramas' they've had as a girl-band, I hope they put their 'happy' heels on and do us Aussie fans proud! Viva Forever!!!

Whose with me?!?!

Oscars Hype!

Because yesterday was Monday and I was stuck at work, I have unfortunately not been able to watch the Oscars pan out on TV ! * sad face *

Have any of you been watching?

I had a quick flick and peek at some of the fashion from the day in my lunch break but missed all of the real action. (I'm sure our subscription to Foxtel/Austar will pay off as the re-runs on the E! Channel will be massive an repetitive I'm sure!)

I have managed to have a glance online at the fashion (what girl doesn't do this?) and I've picked my favourites! The leading lady that takes the cake in my books is definitely Jessica Chastain (from the new film Zero Dark Thirty).

Stunning!! From her porcelain skin, the red lip to the beautiful gown, she ticks all the fashion boxes in my books!

Coming a close second of course is one of my favourite up and coming actors, Jennifer Lawrence (known from the Hunger Games and the winner of the Oscar for her role as the leading lady in Silver Linings Playbook which is a movie that I was sadly disappointed in. I didn't really get it and wasn't that keen on it, but I love Jennifer as an actor either way!)

She looked the bomb-dot-com!

That gown was gorg!! And its funny, there seemed to be a lot of gowns in this 'blush', pale colour palette. Maybe this is a sign of what to expect next season? I love these pale colours, even the pale actors managed to pull them off and this colour is notorious for washing people out so kudos to those ladies!

I have to say, there were a lot of gorgeous looks this year! Naomi Watts looked amaze, but I was sad to hear none of the nominated Aussies picked up awards! Especially Hugh Jackman, I mean hello, he is a superstar! Better luck next year Aus!!

A little motivation...

Lately I have been in a bit of a "stressy" rut with lots of things happening all at the same time in my life currently.

I like to try and look at the positives in life and often find that this quote is always one that makes sense! I made this poster for another little project that I am working on and wanted to share some positive energy with you all!!

Happy Thursday! :)

Happy Valentines Day!

Just a quick one today to say "Happy V-Day!"

I have been so busy this week with lots of exciting things!  I also got a lovely surprise when this gorgeous bunch of a dozen roses showed up at my office this afternoon from my BF. Nawwwww. So sweet!

I hope you are all getting spoilt and feel just as special as I do!

"Carried" Away

I am feeling very "girly" this weekend after spending last night curled up with some chick flicks and yummy food!

I have been watching the new series "The Carrie Diaries" and its starting to grow on me.

Nothing, of course can replace the original Carrie Bradshaw and all of the "Sex and The City" glory but it'll suffice now that SATC the original is no longer on the air. I also watched the SATC 2 movie last night so I am feeling very "Carrie" right now. lol

I made this poster for all of my SATC lovers out there! ;)



I saw these in the Gold Coast Mimco store when I was in QLD last month. I was so close to buying the black iPhone case but I stopped myself in an attempt to keep saving money. I totally wish I hadn't been so responsible because I am loving these cute i-accessories!

eBay sale!!

Hey everyone, how is your weekend going so far? Mine has been nice, except for the mild headache I woke up with this morning due to enjoying too many drinkies last night out with the BF and some friends (I hadn't been out in ages so my poor body really was not used to the alcohol! lol)

Anyhow, today another lovely blogger and twitter friend of mine inspired me to get back on eBay and start selling some items for cash!

I tried listing some dresses on eBay late last year and had no luck getting them sold. I have re-listed one of the dresses (a new Sportsgirl cocktail dress, size 10 with tags!) at a lower price in the hope of getting it sold!

I also have a tonne of books to be sold that I've either read and don't want anymore or haven't read at all and just want to sell! So far I have listed four books to see how they go!

I've got:

Shania Twain's bio "From This Moment On" (hard cover). Starting bid $5

Paullina Simmons fiction novel "Road to Paradise" (paperback). Starting bid $5

"The Weird Sisters" by Eleanor Brown (paperback). Starting bid $5

"The Notebook" by Nicholas Sparks (paperback). Starting bid $2.50

All of these books are in really good condition - mostly 'as new', so if you are interested in any PLEASE BUY THEM!!

My eBay name is 3811ellie and you can search all of my items!

Witchery Wishlist

Of course when I am trying my hardest not to spend any money and attempting to save my pennies, new season fashion and accessories hit the stores and I end up drooling and reaching for my wallet!

Witchery is by far one of my favourite fashion chain stores and I die most times I go into a store! I was at the Sydney airport last week at the Witchery airport store and spent almost half an hour walking in and around the new clothes trying to decide what to spend my loyalty voucher on! (If you're a Witchery member you get some awesome perks and vouchers!)

Here is what is on my wish list right now.
