Monday Inspiration

Morning… Hmm it seems that staying up late to watch the INXS biopic on the Telly last night has left me feeling tired and a bit blah. Isn’t it interesting how going to bed later than my body is used to can reflect on how I feel in the morning? I certainly didn’t feel like jumping out of bed and on to my mat to do Sun Salutations like I have every other morning lately.
So, instead I’m blogging this picture of two of my favourite stylish girls because I need hair help! I’m in between cuts and I don’t know what to do with my mop. Yasmin Sewell’s hair is nothing like mine – except for the length, and so I love the idea of wrapping a colourful scarf around my head!
Do you have any go-to ideas for when your hair is at that in-between stage?

Have a great week!

Appealing Things

Miu Miu embellished skirt. So very pretty.

Tin can lanterns. Simply wash out a tin can, make some holes with a hammer and a nail and pop in a tea light. Easy!

Taylor Tomasi Hill’s closet. Can I please have one just like it?

Le Breton. Always a favourite, you can never have too many!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if bears were not ferocious, if we could cuddle them like this?

It’s strawberry season here. Did you know that strawberries are the only fruit with their seeds on the outside?

I love this whole look, inspired dressing for the summer?

Spending time with my girls.

Taking full advantage of my time off today. Work comes around so quickly, but it’s not so bad… the time spent with my family when I’m home is all the more sweeter these days. Hope your week is going well. xx

Sunglasses: How do I look?

Sunglasses, shades or as we call them down here, sunnies, are probably the most essential accessory in a person’s wardrobe. When leaving the house, I grab my purse, keys and sunnies.  Without them life is viewed through squinted eyes and frankly it’s just a pain in the arse to drive here without them.  

Whether you spend $20 or $500 on yours, it’s all about how they frame your face, and I guess for some, even the look you wish to project – tough, demure, serious, intelligent, etc.  

Sunglasses have long been making their mark in the movies, some have even been lifted to iconic status based on an appearance in a movie.  

Daniel Craig as 007 in Casino Royale, 2006
Tom Cruise as Maverick in Top Gun, 1986
 Gary Oldman as Count Dracula in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, 1992
 Meg Ryan in French Kiss, 1995
 Don Draper
 Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, 1961
 Kelly McGillis as Charlie in Top Gun, 1986
 Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface, 1983
 Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden in Fightclub, 1999
 Tom Cruise in Risky Business, 1983
 Debra Winger and John Malkovich in The Sheltering Sky, 1990
 Carrie-Ann Moss as Trinity in The Matrix, 1999
Cary Grant in North by Northwest, 1959

Some may own a single pair, making them work for all occasions, while others of us may have many more to choose from, deciding which frame to wear depending on outfit, mood, the season, hair colour, etc.  I have a gorgeous pair of classic Gucci’s that I can only wear when my hair is long because they just don’t suit me when my hair is short.  

I used to have the most amazing pair of black Chanel’s that I wore to death – literally, they fell apart after much too much wear.  It was a very sad day when that happened because I loved them so much, they looked fabulous!

I have been inspired by Prada’s current designs, but my biggest issue with them is that while they are in vogue now, fashion is fleeting, and so parting with the amount of money Prada requires, well…  I would rather have a pair that will stand the test of time.  Of course, if I had loads of cash to spare, I’d buy the Prada’s immediately!
