Autumn/Winter Shopping at Westfield Chatswood

Was that crisp air I felt today?!

With summer finally waving goodbye, I am getting ready to embrace the cooler months ahead. I love dressing for autumn and winter because it’s all about layering up, wearing knits and knee high boots.

I recently headed to Westfield Chatswood to get started on my autumn/winter shop and was blown away by the choice of retailers and the fact that I was able to deck myself out in so many different styles all without leaving the building. I wanted looks that were on trend and were going to keep me going through the season changes.

Finding the balance between simple and complicated

JS_10 The Little Black Dress has been a staple in most women’s wardrobes forever. It’s right for so many occasions. Whether it be work attire, a relaxed night out or something more fancy, the LBD has you covered. I’m loving the tassels and the lace details on this dress. It gives the dress another dimension. It turns a simple LBD into something more interesting.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I find the beginning of Autumn to be the prettiest time of the year. Just before the leaves begin to fall they turn bright yellows, oranges and reds. The streets look bright and alive. It’s a feast for your eyes and your senses.

And then, over a couple of short weeks, the leaves fall and the trees are left bare. Although still beautiful, everything is different.

How to relax…

Sass & Bide

I’m not good a relaxing. I’m a doer. I do things. Constantly. Do. Do. Do. I’m a calm human, but I find it really hard to sit my butt down! Unfortunately (or fortunately, depends how you look at it!), there is always something to be done. A woman’s work is never finished, like, never. So, something I’m working on, is relaxing! As ridiculous as it might seem, sometimes we have to schedule in time to do, well, nothing!  Relaxing is vital to our well being. Our bodies minds and spirits benefit from taking a little bit of time to refocus, rejuvenate and zen out. Here are some hot tips on doing some little things to relax! And relax….it doesn’t take up too much time!

It's black. It's white.


The black and white combo would have to be my all time favourite fashion go to. It’s classic, clean, smart, simple and in my opinion, will never go out of style.

They just get me.


I’m making this little blog post all about people who just get me.

Being a girl who loves to try new things, take chances and change my mind A LOT, I have the most ridiculously understanding friends and team around me who catch me when I fall, listen when I need and come along for the ride of life.

Without a magnificent team (both past and present) I am completely unable to do all the things I do in a day without completely loosing my mind.

So, to everyone who has ever encouraged me, asked me to be involved, taken care of my children, come to the rescue, made me look passable in a picture, been there through thick and thin, been a part of the team, assisted on projects, sent gifts, answered urgent emails, believed in my visions, gone above and beyond and taken chances – I am forever and truly grateful.

Make sure you share your love to the people who are your people.

Stress and Busy are not a medal of honour.


Have you ever bumped into someone who is so busy and stressed out that they can’t help but tell you all about it? Or, sometimes they don’t need to tell you all about it, it’s written all over their face and body. They are highly strung, can’t focus, are always rushing and just don’t have time for, well….anything. Stress seems to be the new way of life for a lot of us. It’s almost like, if we are stressed, we are kicking goals. The more on our plates, the better we are as humans…or something like that. It’s like a silent ranking system we give ourselves to measure our success by. Like being run off our feet is our greatest accomplishment!
