5 ways to decorate your desk at work on the cheap

Being a 26 year old living (and renting) in Sydney, to my dismay, I don’t have a large disposable income so I’m always on the hunt for cheap tricks to stretch my dollar further. I’m fairly certain I spend more time at my desk than anywhere else (that’s a tough pill to swallow!) so there’s…

how to be more sustainable in your daily beauty routine

I recently saw Nat Geo’s now viral plastic bag iceberg cover and it got me thinking about how I can be more sustainable in my everyday life, starting with my daily beauty routine. It’s barbaric to think that companies still need to test on animals and it’s not just the cheaper brands, with large fashion…

love story: the date night

Your 6:30 alarm goes off for your morning run; you hit snooze and roll over; it goes off again; snooze. You have two choices here, turn off the alarm and roll over for a bit more shut-eye, or you get up and hit the pavement. I like to think that a relationship is a lot…

pour decisions: pinot gris vs pinot grigio

Same same, but different. There’s no doubt that your palate changes as you get older. I recently read an article in the Guardian that said after we grow out of our teenage drinking phase -i.e binging on sugary overloaded cruisers and shots of vodka and tequila- we gain an appreciation for more robust flavours, such…

looks from the met gala i wish i could wear in real life

The MET gala is one of my fav times of year in the fashion calendar where we see our style icons challenge the annual gala’s theme. Move aside 90’s flashback or Disney, the MET gala themes are rarely one you’re likely to copy in the future with this year’s dress code inspired by Heavenly Bodies:…

raindrops

I’m currently learning French and in my attempt to expand how I learn the language, I came across @Frenchwords, a great Instagram account that will teach you a new French word or phrase a day, and I’m not talking about the generic “Bonjour Je m’appelle…” The picture perfectly sums up Sydney’s weather this week. I’m…

Style Muse: emmanuelle alt

“Forget trendy designer labels. Jeans, a sweater or a t-shirt worn under a jacket that seems welded to you. When it’s just right, when you don’t see the effort, it’s irresistible.” Emmanuelle Alt is no doubt a style icon beyond France’s borders. Vogue Paris’ editor-in-chief since 2011, Emmanuelle pulls of effortlessly chic outfits on the regular…

two queens

Feeling slight withdrawals (and by slight, I mean major) after finishing up The Crown earlier this year I am on the hunt for any royal family news I can find. Whatever there is to know about the most famous family in the world (sorry Kardashians!) I’m all over it. Did you know if the Queen is…

tgfs x who’s that girl: olivia ruggeri

We’re on a roll! Welcome to the third post of tgfs x who’s that girl! This week I’ve profiled one of the hardest working people we know; she co-owns a restaurant in Sydney’s Inner West with her partner, works 6 nights a week and always has a smile on her face. Olivia is the perfect…

on the streets: new york fashion week

New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world and during Fashion week, eyes aren’t just on the runways. Often those attending the shows are photographed just as much as those walking the catwalks- if not more. You’ll always find me checking out Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar’s street style galleries during the month-long festival of fashion,…
