Matilda ♥

Last Thursday, Poppy and I went to Melbourne for three days with her cousin Maggie and my sister-in-law, Tup.  It was such fun travelling with two little girls, who were so excited about all the little things you tend to take for granted … such as checking in our bags, holding their boarding passes and the ultimate … taking off!

We had some city time before going to Matilda The Musical at the Princess Theatre on Thursday night.  The girls were beside themselves in their pretty dresses, marvelling at the beauty of the theatre, their Dress Circle seats, the amazing set, but mostly their Choc Tops!

The show was absolutely amazing – I recommend anyone to go and see it before it finishes in November.  I even shed a little tear at the end!  The girls were exhausted as they climbed into their beds at their big cousin’s home in Hawthorn.

I really valued spending time with Poppy just on her own – chatting away with her as we wandered through Chadstone on a mission to find her a new pair of Runners (that weren’t too pink)!

The three little cousins had a movie and a ‘midnight feast’ on Friday night, whilst the big sister-in-laws shared a beautiful home cooked meal and a bottle of red!

We had an amazing time away, but we missed our boys at home and it was lovely to see them on our return on Saturday night.  Xx

Twinkle Toes

Skechers Twinkle ToesLo and behold … I have succumbed to the marketing aimed towards a pink-loving toddler!

I bought Poppy a pair of ‘sensible’ shoes during the week when she was at daycare but unfortunately they didn’t fit her.  She came with me yesterday to exchange the shoes for the right size … but was lured towards these dazzling Twinkle Toes that blink with every step!  I tried reasoning with her but caved in as she looked up at me with her big blue eyes and a hopeful expression.  Oh I am such a softie!

James is also sporting a new pair of Tip Toey Joey’s, ready for daycare next week.  His first pair of shoes.  Too cute!

Nike X Liberty ♥

Nike X LibertyToday I am loving the collaboration between Nike and Liberty.  I am always partial to a good Liberty print but what a marriage!

Nike X Liberty

For Spring/Summer 2014, Nike and Liberty have once again collaborated to create an on-trend collection for summer.

The new collection sees some of Nike’s most celebrated footwear and apparel styles transformed with an array of timeless Liberty London floral prints.

Anoosha, a 1930’s print featuring blossom and bell flowers; Lora a print based on a 1970s version of William Morris’ ‘Willow’ pattern; and Crown a design based on various paisley block prints from Liberty’s Merton print works from the late 19th to early 20th Century adorn the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Roshe Run. For the first time, vintage running favourite the Internationalist receives a Liberty makeover as do basketball classics, the Blazer and the Dunk Sky Hi.

I am not really a sneaker kind of girl, favouring more left of field choices but these I could happily wear.

Sneaky Peek : Shoes l Bags l Hats

It is a well-known fact that I LOVE shoes, bags and hats!  They all make an outfit complete and there are so many adorable pieces out there!  Today’s post is a sneaky peek into my walk-in-robe!


I have slowly accumulated a range of shoes over the years in all styles, colours and heel heights.  I love my high heels for special occasions, but do find them quite uncomfortable (maybe I am getting old?)

My everyday staples include ‘Birkies’ (Birkenstock Gizeh in Khaki) and my new favourite – Acne Pistol Boots which I bought in London.  I have lived in these boots and find them extremely comfortable, but still with a bit of a heel.

My other favourites include espadrilles, flats and any Camper shoes.

Hats & Bags

My mother was a Milliner and has all these amazing old hat boxes and a hat iron.  She also used to model her creations in the local newspaper – The Examiner.

I used to wish that I grew up in the era when hats and gloves were part of your outfit as it looks so classy. I do have a few hats, but unfortunately don’t wear them as much as I would like.

I think Poppy has inherited my love of shoes – here is a new pair of Walnut Mary Jane’s for her growing little feet:
