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,…

pour decisions: the wine glass

I don’t know about you, but I know everything there is to know about wine, especially the reason why you should never put white wine in a red wine glass… I wonder how well sarcasm translates online? I’m finding when it comes to wine, you tend to be indulging with an audience who appreciate the…

7 dresses for valentine’s day under $100

There are few greater feelings in life than seeing a waiter approach your table with your food or checking your mailbox and finding an online shopping package tucked inside. It was a tough one to narrow down, but I’ve compiled a list of 7 dresses for Valentine’s Day under $100. Yep- you read that right, style steals…

$10 pasta, this is not a drill!

As an avid foodie, (I think about what to eat for dinner, whilst eating lunch) I feel obliged to share this glorious information with the world. Jamie’s Italian is dishing up $10 plates of pasta until the end of the month and no, the offer isn’t just on a plain ol’ plate with some butter, I’m…

tgfs x who’s that girl: kate barracosa

Kate and I worked together for a little over a year and I can tell you that we made an amazing team and loved collaborating together over that time.  Kate is a hard woman to catch, and it’s been a while in the making but I managed to sit down with her for a quick…

mind over matter

Early last year I found a bucket list that I wrote back when I was 15 years old. The person I was when I wrote it was very naive, only worked part-time and had limited ‘real life’ experience and yet when I read over it again for the first time in over a decade, I was overwhelmed…

tgfs x la vie locale

For those of you looking for an authentic Parisian experience, I recommend you check out Maya’s amazing /incredible/insightful/inspiring (..should I go on?) blog La Vie Locale. From things to do and see, Maya shares her local knowledge to help you fit in like a true Parisienne. After stalking reaching out to Maya, I was able to…

flowers on friday: sunflowers

With the long overdue rain falling this morning, I thought it only fitting to feature the sunflower to contrast the grey skies.  The sunflower is synonymous with happiness and nourishment and this has a lot to do with the fact that it will change direction to receive the most amount of sunlight throughout the day….

tgfs x who’s that girl: isabelle hermo

Isabelle is an absolute gun at her job and she’ll be hard to beat when it comes to people who love what they do. She is an award-winning, world-travelling hairdresser based out of Sydney’s inner west.

where have you been?

So, it’s been a while… I’ve been on a little hiatus whilst I try and figure out what it is I want to do with this blog. I felt it seemed a little disjointed and was trying to make it too many things, rather than focusing on what it’s purpose is. Since my last post,…

a moment

Two weeks ago my family lost our beautiful grandfather and I haven’t felt like writing since. He had been sick for 10 months, battling an aggressive form of cancer, so when he took his last breath, it was quite a bitter-sweet experience. I have been using this time to spend with family, to cry and to…

flowers on friday: daffodils

I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretched in never-ending…

yoga challenge

It’s official; I’m becoming a yogi…well, that’s the plan anyway. I came across vlogger Yoga with Adrienne on Youtube one evening -after having started with carpool karaoke, followed by the trailer for Tulip Fever- and thought ‘Maybe this is what I need right now!’ If you’ve been keeping up to date with my last Flowers on Friday post you’d…

last minute plans

As I look out the window, it doesn’t appear the rain is going to ease this evening. You’ve got suggestions going back and forth on WhatsApp but you still can’t commit to any plans for tonight? Let us help you out! If you’re looking for a big night on the town, casual bite, maybe even work…

flowers on friday: magnolia

I am feeling very unmotivated today and a negative thought flowed through my mind: It doesn’t matter if I don’t post, no one reads it anyway! Instead of wallowing in my melancholy, I decided to google flowers that represent perseverance, and that’s when I found the magnolia. Magnolias are tough and not delicate like it’s other flowery friends. Their ability…

cannes cannes, can you do the…

The red carpet at Cannes has provided us with some stunning examples of high-end fashion in the past and I know that this year will be the same. In preparation for the festival kick off overnight, I’ve had a look back at my top 5 gowns us mere mortals can only dream about from last year….

flowers on friday- baby’s breath

Symbolising everlasting love and purity of emotion, these little flowers are frequently seen in bouquets and around weddings. Best grown in full sun, the bloom is also often used as a filler to sit amongst it’s larger more dominant floral friends. I think given that something so small can carry such a strong symbol makes me…

throwback thursday: eurovision

The Eurovision finals are upon us this weekend, with Aussie rep Isaiah Firebrace singing his way into Sunday night’s global sing-off. Chilling on the lounge last night, I channel surfed onto SBS where they were running a special of Australia’s fav Eurovision songs of all time and no surprises, we inducted Dami Im into our hall of…
