Just one treat


I finally finished up my work experience that I have been doing for the past 6 weeks so to treat myself I bought these new shoes from the chapel street sale Green with Envy. I didn't realize how high they were... whoppies daisy... goodluck to me trying to walk in them, I think I can hear the snap of my ankles coming!

Leaving for London Tuesday! I am really excited for my intense shopping day the Thursday I arrive.

Birthday Treat

Mum took me over to Yuan Rodic, AKA the Facehunter's book signing in St Kilda last week. I was excited to find out that he was also going to be speaking about his book, blog and exceptionally adventurous lifestyle of jet setting around the world. 

It was so interesting to hear him speak about how and why he initially started his internationally famous street style blog.
He told the intimate and eager group a couple of funny stories, including a crazy spanish girl running after him with her high heel after he took her photo!

Yuan is currently undertaking a couple of new projects including his own Facehunter Show and he has also been asked to speak at various universities around the globe.

Not only was Yuan captivating to listen to but he was also a really lovely guy. He personalized everybody's book with a short msg and tried to find out a bit about each individual that sat down with him. I told him I studied interior architecture and that it was my birthday but walking away I regretfully thought of all the questions I should had asked. Damn stage fright! 

Thanks Mum and my sis for the great Birthday treat!

Ps. I also popped a couple of my other Bday prezzies in the photos above. 

I am waiting for my London trip to spurge on my other Birthday and Christmas presents from the family. Zara here I come!

Zara Bourke Street

Australians have been gossiping about Zara coming to Australia for yonks but the truth is finally out. Zara will be making its first move to Australia, hitting Melbourne's prime CBD location Bourke Street shopping Mall. The spanish brand will take over the current Supre site next to David Jones. The brand will showcase within all 3 levels and will boast their brilliant identity with a 10m high shop front.
Yes at first this news is exciting however I am also overcome with worry. Will the quality be up to european standards? Will the brand maintain its stylish though classical carisma? Will the brand's pricing boost through the roof?..... There are so many scenarios to consider, only time can tell how Zara will effect our Nations retail world. 

What do you guys think??

Biking Babes

I've just finished my studio project for uni, it was focused on designing a civic bike repository/melbourne's first CBD bike club. I've been bike crazy for the past semester, researching bike storage, locking systems and bike clubs. Through my research I have become moderately obsessed with the bicycle community. I've been trying to ride to work regularly, not sure how long it will last. The only problem is the clothing change, having to change from the sweaty/daggy workout clothes into something a little more presentable. I wish it could be as easy as these people make it look to ride to work/into the city in style.
My perfect new form of transport 
only need a little basket for my belongings at the back

Love for Gemma Ward

Who misses Gemma Ward in the modeling world?? I do I do. She was always one of my favorites. Her baby doll beauty was envied around the globe.
Currently she has been focusing on acting.. i loved the part she played in the australian film 'the black balloon' along side Toni Collette and ex Home and Away star Rhys Wakefield. It was a beautiful film. Her next movie gig is a complete blockbuster.... Staring in the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, as Tamara, Queen of the Mermaids. She meet Jack Sparrow (no other than Johnny Depp of course) during his search for the Fountain of Youth. 

owww how exciting, I'm sure she will look stunning as a mermaid, can't wait to see it
