It’s extra hard work picking outfits for yourself to wear to the ultimate event for women – but after rifling through a lot of choices I finally settled on two key looks. Day one was all about feeling pretty glam, while for Day Two I opted for a stylish but casual and comfortable look.
A lot of you asked where I got out my outfits from. Here’s a breakdown of what I was wearing on both days, so here goes:
Let my crazy mistake be a lesson to all of us ladies out there (and even the gents!) – ALWAYS, I repeat ALWAYS double check in the mirror before you step out the door (triple check, check with everyone in the house before you leave!!!).
I bought this awesome tee from one of my new fav labels, Jaggar, to wear for the first day of my appearance at Beautiful You – the shirt had in bold writing across the front the word HEROINE, as in Super Woman Extraordinaire, We Run the World, Girl Hero, You Can Do it Girls! I thought it was an empowering statement to all the super women out there that rule.
But, in my innocence (ok, blondness), I did the farrshion thing and balanced my leather jacket across my shoulders and power walked my way into that event, neglecting to notice that my jacket had strategically covered the last E in the word HEROINE. Without that vital letter to finish off that word…it becomes a word that
I would very much not like to promote let alone sprawl it across my chest! Needless to say – MORTIFIED and an outfit change was immediate. Apologies to anyone who saw me stomping around with all the confidence in the world – I was trying to make a point that girls are amazing. FAIL! (but I still believe that girls are amazing)
I was thrilled to be included as an ambassador for the inaugural Beautiful You women’s expo in Melbourne this past weekend – but easily the biggest highlight of my weekend was meeting this beautiful girl, Ally!

Another invite I simply couldn’t turn down this month was to check out the awesome new Missoni for Target range at an exclusive preview event. Wow. I really love that Target is venturing further into its Designers for Target category and this new range is no exception!
Best known for its colorful knitwear designs, Missoni, has partnered with Target to create the ultimate range of goodies – from clothing through to homewares (umbrellas!) and even outdoor furniture – there’s over 200 different pieces! The entire range hits stores and online on October 8 – I would snap some goodies up quick smart!

It is my great honour to be one of the ambassador’s for World Vision and last year I was able to visit Sri Lanka in a very special trip to see the wonderful work that they do overseas. Needless to say I came back more determined do my part to help those in need. See some pictures of the beautiful people of Sri Lanka and my experience with them. Read More
As a stylist one of the best parts of my job is getting to spend hours (okay sometimes too many hours) pouring over the latest red carpet looks. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine and while it’s so easy for people to judge people based on their outfits, I know what really happens behind-the-scenes – sometimes it’s weeks, months of planning and pulling samples, consulting with designers and looking at trends before finally… the winning outfit is chosen. It can be a really exhaustive process!
