A warning: if you are vegetarian, do not read on for you will find no peace in this post. It’s strictly for carnivores only.

EVENT: Galway Ladies’ Day, Ireland

Ireland’s most glamorous will be lining up at Galway Racecourse on Thursday, August 1 for its famed Best Dressed Person competition, sponsored so generously by Anthony Ryans Ltd. Although the title does say “Person”, I believe all prior winners have been women, and any gents wishing to enter will have to go to great lengths...

House of Baulch

House of Baulch

This weekend thanks to Instagram I discovered House of Baulch was having a one day sale at their studio in Collingwood. What a find! If you aren’t familiar with HoB it’s an accessories label that packs a punch with strong statement pieces, bold use of colour and lashings of gold. All things I love in...
New makeup love

New makeup love

I’m a sucker for pretty packing when it comes to my makeup. Things get worse when the packaging is pink. I MUST have it, regardless of what is inside. So it was a pleasant surprise when I purchased Guerlain Meteorites on a whim and discovered the product inside was equally spectacular. I bought the miniature...
White polka dots

White polka dots

Setting trends wherever she glides, the Duchess of Cambridge, aka Kate Middleton, didn’t let a small thing like childbirth get in the way of her impeccable style. Stepping out of St Mary’s Hospital in London today clutching the most talked-about accessory of the week (HRH the Prince of Cambridge), there was no fashion rest for...
Black and White

Black and White

I’m over winter and over the cold (apparently the coldest Melbourne weekend in 13 years) so I’m planning my wardrobe for when the warm weather hits in a few short weeks. I always seem to buy lots of clothing in the wrong season because I get so excited about the new and upcoming looks. As...
5 reasons to wear red lipstick

5 reasons to wear red lipstick

I must confess that I am a lip balmaholic. I apply it every morning, and every night before I go to bed. And (several times) during the day if I feel the need. Sometimes, when I’m all made up on a night out, I get really lazy and instead of re-applying my gloss, I reach...

The Champagne Region, France

The Champagne Region, France

One of those milestone birthday numbers make its inevitable arrival in my life this year. I wanted to celebrate, but not in the grand fashion that Boyfriend Drew did (a three-week American odyssey encompassing Orlando, New York, Las Vegas and LA). I wanted to go somewhere new; somewhere interesting but not far-flung. I also wanted...
The Fat Duck, Bray, UK

The Fat Duck, Bray, UK

Getting a reservation at The Fat Duck is as difficult as finding hen’s teeth. They open reservation lines (phone and web) two months in advance and if you don’t get in the minute they open, you’re doomed to fail. As it happens, Boyfriend Drew lucked out and secured a wait list cancellation for a Saturday...
Royal Ascot wrap, 2013

Royal Ascot wrap, 2013

Royal Ascot is a week for the human stayers. It’s not for the sprinters, or the middle-distance hopefuls – it’s for the Makybe Divas and the Yeatses among us. Never mind the two- or three-day back up of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, there are no days of rest in this five-day feast of top-shelf racing...
