A White Day at the Beach

Sabo skirt lace dressWhat we always look forward on the summer months are the outing activities we can do and the beach is surely the top destination. This time my family headed South to the third largest city in NSW. Wollongong is always dear to me as hubby and I frequented this place prior to having kids when visiting a place was purely a leisure and was only retained in the memory meaning back to the time I didn't take photos :)

Floral for Summer

Valleygirl dressIf my previous post was lengthy this is completely the opposite :) Taken after I had my haircut, hence, I was still halfway drinking my beet juice, I think I looked stress-free haha. I honestly, didn't plan to shoot when I got home but I didn't want the perfect wave in my hair gone to waste without being captured in the camera.

Things to do in sunny Gold Coast

Things to do in Gold CoastIf there's one word I can describe the Gold Coast it is sunny. Whenever I come here even if it's not summer I can always wear playsuits and thongs. Queenland's Gold Coast has a sub-tropical climate with around 300 days of sunshine per year. Though I've never been in winter time yet it's still generally sunny and dry. Since I mostly come during the kids school summer holidays our bags only contained light clothing, swimmers and thongs except for me which I brought 4 pairs of shoes for photoshoot purposes :)  So when we are staying on the Gold Coast here are the things we normally do on repeat.

Pom pom Sandals and Beach Throw @ Nastydress

One of the places that I miss on the Gold Coast which I wish I visited more is the beach. The first hotel where we stayed was in Surfers Paradise which is a seaside suburb and a major hub of Gold Coast. Colloquially known as 'Surfers', the suburb has many high-rise apartment buildings and a wide surf beach.

New Year's Greetings from Palazzo Versace

So just like that, 2016 is waving goodbye and now we're ringing in the new year. ls there anything you wish you would have done and achieved before this year ended? Don't fret, you're not the only one. I too would like to do so many tasks but surprise surprise there was so little time. One thing for sure, as long as the sun rises we can be full of hope to accomplish those dreams that are left unattained. So 2017 will be the year for that, hopefully for me too.

Warm Christmas Cheer from Down Under

What to wear to Christmas dinnerHow is it that 1 more sleep and it's Christmas already? Not that I don't like it, it's my most favourite time of the year. The festive atmosphere, the cheer in the air and the love around is overwhelming. I did my last minute Christmas shopping and Sydney was just full of shoppers, I could barely moved. And now I'm broke haha. Not from the Christmas presents but from my holiday in Gold Coast, the kids were just high maintenance ;-))

The Blues

I never realised I like blue dresses until I found many of them in my closet. How am I not aware of them and how did they accumulate, I cannot remember. As for my bags which I carefully chose, I only have a handful in blue and that's including this tote from Oroton.

Velvet Dress and Pleated Skirt @ Sammydress

How to wear the velvet dressChristmas is upon us and while my friends from the Northern Hemisphere are clothed in layers I am putting away my jackets, coats and fur vests in favour of playsuits and lace dresses. Luckily, there are outfits that can be worn for both sides and ends of the world and these are the velvet dresses and midi pleated skirts. Only a matter of styling and the kind of footwear to slip on one is ready to face the kind of day it will be.

Pinafore Dress at a School Fete

Pinafore dressOne of the important things I learned as a mother is never to lose your inner child and that you can still have fun especially with your children. Sure, motherhood is a serious matter, raising and disciplining your children is a darn hard job but chilling out is equally important. Probably, that's why there are school activities that involve the participation of parents. Not only to raise money for the school :) but to also encourage social interaction among families. So we went to one of my sons' school fete where we stuffed ourselves with food and drinks and watched him take on many different rides. I wore this pinafore dress and cold shoulder top to go with the event.

Embroidery and Slip Dress Trends - Zaful Review and Giveaway

Two of the biggest trends at the moment that I haven't tackled in my blog yet are the embroidered and slip dresses. And I'm so excited to rock these outfits right here right now :) Got both of these dresses from Zaful which is one of my favourite online stores. Love this shop not only because of its reasonable prices but most of all for its updated trends and speedy delivery. Honestly, nothing to complain but pure shopping pleasure.
