Welcome to Fabulous Friday. Every week, I share a little about my week, the good stuff (I’m not into the negative), a little retail therapy and a few fun moments. Then it’s your turn. What made your week? Did you find a fashion bargain? See a great movie? Read an inspirational book? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
Sitting front row at the Mercedes-Benz Brisbane Fashion Festival was definitely THE highlight of my week. I imagine it’s like having really good seats at a footy game when you are a complete footy nut, only I was in heels and it was more champagne and canapes than beer and pies. I had the fever – fashion fever – and despite it being a super freezing night, I’m so excited for the summer ahead. I’ll be wearing some gorgeous neutrals, fabulous prints, a touch of feminine and maybe some shorts. What key pieces are on your Spring wishlist?
I’ve confessed my inner geek tendencies on more than one occasion … and boy oh boy, I was in a little bit of geek heaven at the Apple store Westfield Chermside on Sunday. I’m completely obsessed with the iPad and cannot wait to add it to my electronic collection. My youngest and his cousins were impressed too – could not resist taking this very cute photo of them.
There is nothing like a scarf to lift your outfit. We’re still in winter and using them also for warmth but as the new season arrives, don’t ditch the scarf. Embrace lightweight styles that can totally make your outfit. I’m loving the new collection from Katiebo – especially this mushroom-coloured Glamazon scarf ($49.95). The neutral colour is SO spring 2010 and the muted silver sequins just add more than a little interest.
While not technically a beauty item, if you buy a beauty product or products ($35 or more) from Bloom Cosmetics, you’ll receive this umbrella. Much more fabulous than a dreary black one. You’d almost wish for a rainy day just to use it … almost.
