What to pack for a weekend away in the Whitsundays

FEATURED What to pack for a weekend away on an island

I took this photo of iconic Whitehaven Beach about 18 months ago. I was on a blogger trip and it was my first time in Queensland’s Whitsundays. Not only could I not believe it was my first time visiting this part of my home state but I knew then and there that I would be

I’ve had reason to pull together some quick evening outfits of late. I know: First World Problem. I love colour like the next person but when it comes to a no-fuss, no-fail, no-brainer evening outfit, I’ll reach for black on any occasion. I don’t find black boring it at all. I find it an instant solution

It’s Day 3 and the final in my spring 2014 fashion trends series. You can catch up with the previous parts here and here. I’ve left the more tricky bits until last for good reason. It’s actually very easy to look at trends in colours and patterns and find things that you immediately connect with.

Are you playing along with my little spring 2014 fashion trends game? Yesterday in this post I talked about the work you need to do before you hit the shops for a wardrobe update. Plus, I included five of the spring colour trends that are in store now. Today we’re focussing on pattern. You’ll be pleased

Spring has sprung in my part of the world. It did take its time to reach the forecast 27 degrees yesterday and today is forecast at only 22 but there is a distinct seasonal change in the air. Whenever that happens, I get a sudden urge to re-organise and re-edit my wardrobe. I know this

Hello first day of spring. You make me so incredibly happy with your mild sunny days and cool, doona-worthy nights. You remind me that it’s time for a pedicure, that regular leg-scaping is now mandatory and that it’s time to re-organise the wardrobe and re-discover what I wore last time it was warm. It’s also

What to pack for a weekend conference

I spent some time yesterday planning and packing for the next three days. I’m heading down the road to the Gold Coast, picking up my partners-in-crime room mates at Brisbane Airport on the way. Our destination is the QT Gold Coast and the fifth annual Problogger Training Event, at which I’m speaking at on both days.

When my blogging friend Emily announced that she was starting her own online clothing store, I took immediate notice. See, Em has a natural way with relaxed style. The kind of effortless, casual style that suits anyone with even a hint of boho love in their wardrobe. If you follow along with my #everydaystyle outfit

When was the last time you had a bra fitting?

Do you think that our hang-ups with getting a bra fitted can be traced back to the first time? I know mine probably can be. I didn’t even want to acknowledge that I had boobs, let alone have my mother see them and declare that those tiny puppies needed to make a trip to Myer

Did you get caught in the rain event at the weekend? Aside from the fact that I find it fascinating that we are now calling a day of precipitation an EVENT, I did make the most of the last blast of winter and pulled on the boots, faux fur collar and coat for a farewell party.

Whose TV style do you like?

It’s less than a week since Nina Proudman left our screens – leaving our wardrobes floating in limbo land, unsure we’ll ever get a new Nina-inspired fashion moment again. Apart from working your way back through four years of Nina posts here, what’s a girl to do? Look elsewhere for a little on-screen inspiration? Are

I wore a jumpsuit. Something I never thought I would ever write here. Something I thought I’d never wear. Proves that you should never say never, I say. Sometimes it’s not the fashion trend you should be afraid of but more who’s designing that trend. Let me paint the picture. In the week before my

I was asked this week which were my favourite outfits on Season 5 of Offspring – for Billie and Nina Proudman. It wasn’t that tough to answer (you can see my answers here). Until I watched last night’s finale. Last night Nina served us up three outfits as a parting gift to us all. And

One of the most common style questions that lands in my inbox is: “what should I wear to my/my girlfriend’s/my sister’s milestone birthday?”. Obviously it depends on the venue, time of day and whether any dress code is expected but, for my money, options generally come down to a frock or a pants and top scenario.

One of the many things that the costume designers on Offspring get very right is the fact that a normal woman would re-wear a large proportion of their wardrobe. I love that we see Nina and Billie wearing designs that they’ve worn over the past few seasons. It gives us permission to the same. It also
