I found a new tumblr that I'm obsessed with, Perfect Bucket List, and all of these are ones that I will be doing before the end of this year!!! How exciting!

I am majorly missing the fact that Australia doesn't really celebrate Halloween! I grew up in Scotland (where Halloween originated - not America) so we used to put so much effort dressing up to go guising ('trick-or-treating') and perform for every house in the neighborhood. I wish I had friends that would happily go to a decent dress up party with me. I think there are a few clubs in Melbourne doing something tomorrow night but I doubt many people will really make the effort.

Apparently Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom are hosting a Halloween party that will rival Heidi Klum's annual party, so I'm sure both will have an amazing guest list. I can't wait to see what all of the guests dress up as!

For everyone who is lucky enough to be in the northern hemisphere Happy Halloween!!!

I have been feeling very 'girlie' as of late, which is just so not me. I think getting excited about my end of year trip to Paris is doing it to me. I came across the top image of the key chain randomly on Tumblr, and after doing some research (a.k.a. 'Googling' it), I found out that Laduree is a chain of macaroon cafes around Paris. Their website is super cute! The keychains retail for around $100 - $150 I believe, but the cafe's look divine so I am definitely putting that on my 'to-do' list. Depending on how crazy I go at the shops in London, I might end my holiday with one of those dangling on the end of my keys. I think that little macron stack may be just too cute to resist!

Ultimate List: #2 Classic Watch

I had a post on "Classic Watches" in my edit list for a while now and was waiting for find a few more examples before I was going to post it. This Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch was one of the ones I had already found, and then low and behold, my parents gave it to me as a graduation present! I am one lucky girl! I have hardly taken it off my wrist since I got it and will definitely be wearing it for a long time to come.  The funny thing is that I almost bought a watch on when the 20% sale was on, but now I am so glad I didn't. This one is a lot more understated and wearable.

 Sorry for being so MIA. I have had the busiest two weeks, including my family visiting from Paris and my graduation. Plus, so few things are inspiring me at the moment. You could say I am in a bit of a rut. Back to normal soon.

Olivia Palermo Blog

As many of you are probably aware, is up and running. Its actually not bad and lets face it, even if it was terrible, I'd still read it. There is one thing about it that I just can't quite put my finger on, perhaps the writing seems a little.. contrived? Apparently there are other contributing writers though, its not just all Olivia... but I just keep remembering that episode of The City where Olivia and Whitney have to do that presentation at DVF and Olivia chokes. I literally read her blog with that voice inside of my head. Although to be honest, if I have heard a bloggers voice before then I can't help but read their blog with their voice narrating it all inside my head. Is that weird? Anyways, the main point is that her style is awesome and therefore this is another excuse to post a million photos of her - enjoy!


Despite still lusting over the Givenchy Nightingale and Hansbury bags, I have realised that the issue I have with my current black bag is that it is just too big. I am starting to veer towards smaller bags now and I am looking for one with just enough room to put my phone, wallet, a little make up, diary and a small book. The Celine Micro looks like it might be just the perfect size for the job! Although I love this orange shade, for the amount of money I'd be spending I'd need to get the black colour. Luckily Paris is last on my Europe itinerary, so if I manage to be careful with my money and not go too insane at All Saints in London then I might be tempted to bring one of these home with me!


Package numero dos! Hunter Wellingtons! I have wanted a pair of Hunters for a few years now and as a Brit, they definitely make my ultimate list since they're such a wardrobe staple over there. Apparently the Royal Family has a ridiculously large collection!  They will be perfect for when I visit home at Christmas time as it is very hard to find decent boots to trudge around the snow and sleet in. Any good leather ones just end up getting destroyed by the grit they place on the roads, especially when it gets to that horrible sludgy stage! I would normally buy something like this over there, but they're usually around ₤75 (approx $128 AUD), and I managed to score them on ASOS's 48 hour sale for ₤39.50 (approx $62 AUD) so I just couldn't say no! The way Melbourne weather is going lately, I might just be able to wear them this summer here too!

I spent most of today not really feeling like myself.. it has been a little odd but I suppose we all have days like that though! I have a huge desire to go and shop up a storm lately, there are so many things I am lusting after. I must be good though! There is so much work still to do on my wardrobe and a million samples at work that I want to buy, not to mention that my next trip to Europe is only 10 weeks away! I can't believe how quickly it is creeping up, it feels like I only got back from my last trip in July a few weeks ago. My credit card is now safely tucked away where I cannot get to it for impulse buys, lets hope it stays there!

I am spending the rest of my evening watching Amelie - magnifique movie! I have three more French films to watch as I have just rediscovered the 'world cinema' section of my local Blockbuster.

10.10. A little bit of MiuMiu

I had been umming and ahhing over buying a new wallet for a while now as I was using an old Mimco pouch which actually looked like it could be carrying rabies! There were a few I really liked online, but I ended up going back to this Miu Miu one on Net-a-porter, probably because its quite classic and there is a smaller chance i will get sick of it! I was so impressed with DHL this time, I purchased it online on Friday night at 8pm and it was on my desk Monday by 10.30am! I will show you my second package tomorrow night, time for bed just now! Sweet Dreams xx 


Some random inspiration for a Monday.. I didn't mind getting out of bed to work today, must have had something to do with the two packages I was expecting to land on my desk... and they did! Can't wait to show you!
