Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel,
While Ellen’s subjects often feature in the nude or lingerie, the women are never objectified and are moreover expressing an aspect of their own femininity.

I know it has been a week since my last blog, but it is all because it has been way too hot and humid to sit at my computer. Plus I have been sewing like a woman possessed too, and exploring Brisbane with my friend and basically just lying about as it is too hot to do anything!
So here are some more looks from the street to keep you inspired!
We are having a great time here in Brisbane but oh the humidity, it’s a killer! The girls keep asking if it is going to snow before Santa comes which is hilarious. It’s hard for them to understand because they watch Christmas movies that are set in the northern hemisphere where it generally snows at Christmas time. Here in Australia, well we spend our Christmas day at the beach eating seafood and ice cream!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Seasons Greetings!
I literally just came across these amazing pictures of Kristen and Rob in character as Bella and Edward. They are divine and of course I felt absolutely compelled to share them with you all immediately! The photographs and interview with Kristen and Rob featured in this December’s issue of US Harper’s Bazaar.
To read the interview with Kristen and Robert, click here.
The intention of the shoot was to vamp Bella up a bit, make it as gothic and sexy as possible. Mission accomplished, I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the magazine!
Sweet dreams everyone!

Yellow is a colour that a lot of people shy away from, but for me, I have always worn it. I think it started out because when I was a little girl, my dance teacher always had my costumes made in either bright sunny yellow or emerald green. It used to annoy me that my blonde friends would get to dress in pink and blue and purple. Back then I would have loved another colour choice.
But now I don’t mind so much.
Did you know that people who are blind to other colours can usually see yellow? Yellow is full of creative and intellectual energy, it symbolises wisdom and means joy and happiness.
Like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings clarity and awareness.
Put some yellow in your life when you want clarity for decision-making, or when you need relief from burn-out, panic, nervousness or exhaustion. It can help sharpen your memory and concentration skills as well as offer protection from lethargy and depression during dull weather.
Some people might not like wearing yellow, but if you find the right shade, it can look amazing. Think Renee Zellwegger in that gorgeous vintage dress she wore to the Academy Awards and the yellow Nina Ricci gown that Reese Witherspoon wore to the awards (not the same year of course).
And who could forget the stunning Vera Wang mustard yellow gown worn by Michelle Williams to the Oscars. Such a transformation for her, wasn’t it?
I think that yellow is going to continue to be pretty easy to find on the racks of your favourite stores this summer because it has been a popular colour for designers for the past three years.
I just know that there are some of you out there that are reading this, still unconvinced, but I say to you – don’t worry if you feel that you just can’t bring yourself to wear yellow, because there is always that old standby – accessories!
P.S. Very soon I am launching my first clothing label! Hubby and I are hard at work and all will be revealed soon!
