A Journey with Style and Soul….

A Journey with Style and Soul….

You know that feeling of a new pair of shoes that are perfect? They’re kind of exciting aren’t they? With those shoes you feel as though they could take you anywhere. With those shoes you stride with comfort and confidence, as time goes on they are natural and an easy choice each day. But one day, further down the track you notice some wear in your shoes and you start to think about that wear and the fit of those shoes and what you will do about them. You ask yourself does the wear in those shoes need to be…

At this Years 2015 ProBlogger Conference I Will……

Last year I attended my first ever ProBlogger Conference. So at this years ProBlogger Conference……. I will NOT grab Tessa from Down That Little Lane in a weird way and say you are not the person I am looking for and walk off and not say anything else. It’s highly possible Tessa doesn’t remember this encounter but I do and even though I’m an extrovert I made myself feel weird, so if she does remember this encounter and feels violated I would not be surprised. I will EMBRACE my preparation and effort in pasting a print out of the program…

Surprise the 80’s Weren’t All That Bad…..

So often when eighties fashion is mentioned people cringe and suggest it’s a whole era in fashion that should be erased from our memories and wardrobes. Granted there were some questionable trends, but the whole era certainly doesn’t require being written off. As most of you know I’m a lover of 1970’s fashion and that has grown into loving the 1960’s and these days I’m seeking out more 1950’s fashion. But the 1980’s has stand out pieces that are complimentary to modern day fashions and vintage lovers wardrobe as well. This 1980’s cotton frock with a graphic print has been…

AHOY Sailor Boy Gets Christened……

We have had an incredible week and yesterday we added to that and had a special occasion with our wee man Fraser being christened. It was quite a hilarious morning at the church, between the delirium of Fraser’s godfather having only had two hours sleep and taking selfies, getting the giggles and Cohen announcing he knew all about evolution loud enough for most of the church to hear. Our kids have a wide knowledge of a lot of things, and there are very few subjects that are off limits, as a result it’s always interesting the times and places they…

Ideas, goals, ponderings, things and thoughts for 2014…..

So I don’t like using the word “resolutions” when we are talking about the start of a new year. It’s an ingrained thing within many, that with the dawn of a new year we look for a fresh start or a do over of things from the previous year. The words “New Years Resolutions” conjure up angst for many people about what happens if they fail or don’t achieve the desired outcome they had declared to all. I personally prefer to work more organically with things in my life. For me life, it’s patterns, routines and moods can change at…

Here we come 2014, but before we do here’s to 2013……

Wow 2013, you’ve been incredible, at least that’s how I’m feeling about my year. I’ve never been busier or more fulfilled in my life than I have been this year. As I look back I’m actually stunned at what I’ve managed to do and achieve in the last twelve months. Here’s a look at some of this years highlights: In February I cheekily announced we were expecting another baby and donned my most fabulous 1950’s frock for the occasion. Whilst pregnant this year every spare bit energy and time I’ve had, has gone into establishing my business. I took on a small…

2013 Week 36: My Wednesday Style Collective….

Keeping it post-pregnancy real, I’m struggling with my wardrobe at present. I’m still needing to drop a few extra kilograms before I can get back into my beloved vintage maxi and high waisted skirts and dresses with buttoned busts. Overall I’m at an in between phase, along with needing items of clothing that allow me to be able to breastfeed easily, so I’m currently (and temporarily) down to minimal suitable and fitting items that suit my tastes and style. As I drop the extra kilograms over coming weeks, my options will increase but for now I’m feeling a little out…

Waiting for Baby, Relaxing and Enjoying……

I’ll let you all in on a little secret. Although the week just passed has been another filled with waiting, there shan’t be anymore waiting by next weekend. So without divulging all news and excitement now, come this time next week life will have changed all over again for my sweet family and it will have expanded.The past week has been full of all sorts of goings on’s and this is how things have looked.Wednesday was my 35th birthday, the day came and passed pretty much like every other.

SPECIAL Style Collective: Not to be missed weekend Style Post…..

I have been holding on for a chance to show off my first ever genuine 1950’s dress, that I bought last year the day that Celia and I worked together on the vintage styling event. I know every day should be a special day donning some vintage. But because this is such a sweet dress that I’m smitten with and because this is a late and special addition style post I thought I’d save it for a special post.She’s a beauty this dress and the great thing about many dresses of the 1950’s is they look utterly divine styled to the…

The Uncensored Early Days of An At Home Business with Kids at Home……

I wanted to pop in and give you all a little update on the behind the scenes stuff here and the changes coming up. After several weeks of setbacks and knock backs it looks like I have a designer keen to work on my new logo design. I hadn’t realised that by some people’s standards it was too close to the end of the year to take on more work. Thank goodness I’m now working with a fellow Queensland Blogger whom I have worked with before for other design needs. Seriously is it that close to the end of the…
