R & B Junkie

Lately I have noticed a new trend starting to appear which I like to call R&B Junkie, (warning: this has absolutely nothing to do with my all time favourite Janet Jackson song!) In this case, R&B junkie relates to Relationships and Breakup Junkies, where all those lovely 10/10 scale couples bust up, make up, breakup, binge eat and adapt destructive new habits. Ladies, it happens to the best of us, and as Pat Benatar would admit, "Love is a Battlefield", but the most important conclusion is the resolution.....

For as long as we can remember, revenge has been said to be best served cold- however, post break up has told me otherwise. Revenge: a dish best served a la spicy, sizzling and hot hot hot. The best revenge therefore is to get yo fine bot to the gym stat and kick those unhealthy wallowing food feasts to the curb!

Fashionable exercise: Lorna Jane activewear!
My new gym attire has boosted my motivation by 10 points!

Here is a little exercise mood board I've put together, mainly consisting of items from the Lorna Jane website. Head on over to find your own, workout style.

For me, music speaks louder than any positive t-shirt slogan. Unlike the rest of my generation, I am in no way attracted to a heavy bass line or dubstep remixes. Call me crazy, but I just love an upbeat melody that makes me want to dance. Here are some songs to get you in the jam. 
Top 10 Workout Songs
  1. I Love It - Hilltop Hoods feat. Sia
  2. Talk That Talk - Rihanna feat Jay-Z
  3. Stronger - Kanye West
  4. R&B Junkie - Janet Jackson
  5. Click Flash - Ciara
  6. Tik Tok - Ke$ha
  7. I'm Real - Jennifer Lopez
  8. Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan
  9. Finally - Ce Ce Peniston 
  10. With You - LMFA0
Love always,

Little Blue Dress

I absolutely adored the hue of this little Portmans number, which makes me pose the question, could LBD suddenly stand for little blue dress?
Dress: Portmans, Bag: Mimco, Necklace: Sportsgirl, Shoes: Wittner

It is believed the complimentary colour of blue on the colour wheel is yellow. It was almost as if Kimmy and I had planned our colour blocking outfits.
Enjoying our lovely Mediterranean dinner and cocktails at our favourite little dining spot, Mecca Bah. 

And the cherry on top of our girly date- dancing to favourite RnB hits at The Exchange.

Must-ard be nice to see you!

This mustard shift dress from Sportsgirl has been the vision of many outfit ensembles I have tried on over the week. The bright colour of the dress is only enhanced by neutral, tans, and gold accessories. 
Dress: Sportsgirl, Shoes: Tony Bianco, Necklace: House of Harlow, Bag: Mimco

Last night I took it on its first dinner date with my little bestie Alice. 

Let me know what you think girls?

Fashion Society Brisbane: March MODA

On Friday night Fashion Society Brisbane hosted the march edition of MODA Creative Black Tie Event. Held upstairs in Cloudland's function area, The Rainbow Room, Brisbane fashionista's flocked in the hottest threads of the season to feast their eyes on the abundant alert of homegrown labels The Babushka Ballerina, and The Cloakroom/Pistols at Dawn.
I wore a Portmans evening dress from their new season line teamed with black peep toe heels and minimal accessories. 
Dress: Portmans Shoes: Corelli Bag: Corelli Bracelet & Earrings: Adorne

Meeting a half hour before the show started, my darling friend Miranda and I had dinner downstairs before heading up to the function room. Coincidently enough Miranda and I both were dressed in dark hues, and we even had the same bag but in different colours!

The best strawberry daquiri I have ever tasted!

Feeling like a celeb being snapped by the paparazzi, our professional photo published on the Brisbane Threads official Facebook page!
Such a fabulous night surrounded by Brisbane's finest fashionistas! To see more photos from the event why not check out the Brisbane Threads facebook page! As always I love to hear what you think bloggers!

Pastel Princess

Feeling like a duchess in this sweet shade of pink nail polish. Proving that I am anything but simple in taste, I have accessorised my mani with a diamonte' clad bow! Load up the pearls and rings girls - my hands are ready to party! 

Let me know what you think of my new nail design! 
Love and Kisses,
