I felt it in Melbourne last weekend. I felt it here in Queensland when I got home. You can feel it too, can’t you?
Spring is just around the corner. Winter may still throw us a few westerly wind curve balls in the next couple of weeks but the days are getting longer and the sun is offering a good dose of Vitamin D … now if only a computer company invented a screen I could take outside and work without glare.
Anyway, in honour of the countdown to spring – and to help those get over missing out on winning the Gwinganna competition, I thought why not get together some lovely things to help you start afresh for the season ahead?
Nancybird bag, wallet and scarf $549
Everyone needs a fresh injection into their spring-summer wardrobe and there is no better way than through accessories. Look no further than Nancybird. Remember that bag that Nina wore in Offspring? Yep. Nancybird. Like Nina, Nancybird’s 2012 spring-summer range has an eclectic feel. There’s the vintage inspiration, combined with the new ideas from designer Emily Wright, as well as the borrowed classic styles that have been updated.
Dreamy prints of organic botanicals are weaved effortlessly into designs turning bags, clutches and wallets into individual statement pieces. The detail that Nancybird is known for can be seen again in the leather feature panels, straps, printed fabric panels and hand-stitching.
In response to popular demand, nancybird designer, Emily Wright, has included even more featherlight scarves this season, adding a wash of soft colour and elegance to spring/summer outfits. All scarves of made from 100% silk and this season it’s all about square and thin styles.
One prize: one red long wallet ($139) – a classic shape with leather and fabric paneling and a secure zip closure; one red George bag ($315) – perfectly shaped for every day and includes printed fabric panels and adjustable leather strap; one Gumnut long scarf ($95) – a beautifully digital-printed 100% silk scarf.
Imadeen Time Perfection skin supplement $588
Neglected your skin over winter? It’s not too late to redeem yourself. Imedeen, the world’s number one anti-ageing skincare supplement and long-term favourite of celebrities and dermatologists is celebrating its 20th birthday. Imedeen quite simply takes beauty to another level, working deep down in the dermal layer where traditional creams cannot reach, to nourish and boost vital supplies of collagen, elastin and moisture retaining elements.
IMEDEEN Time Perfection skincare tablets combat visible signs of ageing. Featuring the exclusive Marine Complex™ – rich in proteins and polysaccharides similar to those found naturally in the skin’s supportive structure – and LycoPhence GS™, it’s a patented skin defence system containing lycopene (derived from non-GM tomatoes) and grape seed extract.
It works to reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; improves skin quality and moisture balance; help protect collagen and elastin fibres against harmful UV rays; and makes skin on face and body feel softer and more supple. You too can see the benefits of Imedeen after 90 days.
