I have just found heaven on earth – it is off the coast of mainland Greece, on the island of Santorini.
Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe this paradise. I am in love, obsessed, already thinking about when I can go back…
The dramatic cliffside dotted with white grecian architecture provide an amazing sight with the bluest backdrop of the Aegean Sea.
Literally, a summer playground like no other.
I never want to leave!
White on white, with white!
I could stay up here for hours…
Soaking up the sun.

Sandals – from a market in Athens, similar here

Perhaps I can find a way to “work” remotely from there each summer?
Wish me luck!
If you have a love for clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories… or ALL of these… there is one thing that scares you more than humidity for curly hair. Packing.
First of all I am not, I repeat NOT, a clairvoyant. I can NOT see into the future. How am I supposed to know what I will feel like wearing tomorrow or the next day??????
So while I can’t take this pain away completely, I will share some tips to try and at least ease the pain of packing.
(1) Claim as much luggage space as possible if you are travelling with a significant other
(2) Pick one or two colour themes
(3) Try a few pieces that are easily “mix and matches”
(4) Avoid changing climates if possible (when going from hot to cold packing those massive jackets takes up WAY too much shoe space)
With the above in mind, I went with a lot of red-white-blue recently for my 4th July trip to Nashville.
Dress up casual with a cute top and nice handbag!
Yes i love heels – but comfy travel shoes are a must!
A mani just makes you feel better – this one 4th July themed!!
Longer sleeves keep you warm if the plan is overly air-conditioned (though with split sleeves that was questionable lol).
Where better to celebrate America than in the city of music??
Making sure that my suitcase was filled with an appropriately patriotic colour themed wardrobe, I ventured to Nashville for the Independence Day long weekend.
Flag accessory mandatory on the 4th July!
Yes, even my nails were in the spirit!
Boots for him…

Here’s to boot scootin’ and the friendly people in the South.
Firstly, apologies for the long time between updates. It has been far too long!
It has been a crazy few months and I have not been able to spend time on blogging.
It’s a new year however, and it comes with new updates for the blog!
As a start 2014 I wanted to share my Parisian adventure with you all.
I was fortunate enough to visit late last year.
Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world.
Spring, summer, autumn, winter – it really doesn’t matter.
My new lipstick – CHANEL Rouge Coco #51 Ce Soir
Absolutely in love with my CHANEL classic ballet flats.
Every opportunity is a good Instagram opportunity!
Top – Review Australia (an oldie but a goodie)
Pants – Citizens of Humanity
Bag & shoes – CHANEL
I am pretty much ready to run away to the South!
After a few days, I have fallen deeply in love with Charleston.
The food (yes I tried grits, and no they are not for me!), the cute buildings running along cobblestone streets, the history, markets, horse drawn carriages…
Added to this, it was perfect warm weather every day.
Ohhh so dreamy – leaving me in a pastel frame of mind.
Trying something new with my hair – I have finally purchased the hair donut (a few dollars from H&M – and they stock various sizes to suit everyone).
Result – AWESOME. It was super easy and took me no more than two minutes!!
Shorts – Loft
Top – Calvin Klein
Bag – Gucci
Shoes – PeepToe
Glasses – Chanel
Nails – California Coral by Essie
Off to watch Gone With The Wind now with my favourite leading southern man, Rhett Butler… quickly grab the smelling salts…
I was lucky enough to spend the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the South, by the beach.
The Isle of Palms, just twenty minutes out of Charleston, was beautiful. Long beaches, perfect weather – an amazing escape.
My tropic inspired dress comes courtesy of H&M – and their conscious collection.
So now you can feel good about a cute dress, at an incredible price, WHILE doing something better for the environment. Win, win and win.
Teamed up with some cute spring pumps, and my new venture the BIG HAT!
I have always been terrified of the large brimmed hat, but finally made the leap. Thoughts?
Dress – H&M

Shoes – Christian Louboutin Sling Back Sughero in Naturale
Last night as I faced the cold rainy Swedish weather in open toe Jimmy Choo pumps to cheer in the new year, I came to a few realizations.
(1) Carrie Bradshaw would never let a small thing like weather curtail her shoe options.
(2) Sequins and sparkle are the NYE uniform, no matter what continent you’re on
(3) There are two kinds of Scandinavian blonde – the real kind that is pristine and enviable. Or the second kind which has been bleached to within an inch of it’s life.
(4) This is the time when you wish you had made BFF’s with at least three taxi drivers.
What a ride 2012 has been – I can’t wait for the adventures of 2013 and here’s hoping we can all keep our New Year’s resolutions (has anyone, ever?????).
