Best of 2018: So much has happened in my life in 2018 but nothing can compare to the most life changing event - giving birth to Aria! Truly nothing could have prepared me for motherhood. I knew it would be challenging but I had no idea to what extent! I’ve learnt that being a mum:
Can be emotional yet you are the rock,
Can be tiring yet you keep on going,
Always worrying yet full of hope,
Can be impatient yet full of patience,
Can become overwhelmed yet never quit,
Can be wonderful even in chaos,
Is life changing every single day!

Best of 2018: So much...

Yes...it’s finally the start of the Lavender season in Melbourne! Who’s excited? 🙌🏼 Wandering through the lush, purple fields, stopping to smell the lavenders! This road trip wouldn’t be complete without all the travel essentials from @amazonfashionau. Including this nappy bag from Skip Hop Nappy Bag for Aria and fits everything we need as well! 🎒#amazonfashionau #getitonamazon

Yes...it’s finally the start of...

Merry Christmas from my home to yours! 🎄❤️ It’s been a special first Christmas with Aria. She had a lot of fun playing with all the wrapping (rather than the actual presents 🎁 😂) and enjoying the festivities! PS this was my first attempt at making a gingerbread house, it was definitely harder and messier than I expected! How did I do? #christmasday

Merry Christmas from my home...

I love being her mummy! 😍 Since she turned 6 months, she started hitting so many milestones from sitting up to crawling to standing up! My baby is growing up so fast! 😳 I always want to protect her where I can, including making sure her skin is protected from the sun using @avene_au Sunscreen Spray for Children SPF 50+. I love that it has no fragrance and perfect for sensitive skin of children. 👶🏻👦🏾👧🏻👦🏼🧒🏽This sunscreen also gives broad spectrum UVB-UVA protection. ☀️🌤#aveneau #howdoyouspf?

I love being her mummy!...

Merry Christmas Eve!!! 🎄So happy I will be spending Christmas at home with family this year and seeing Aria enjoy her first Christmas! #christmaseve

Merry Christmas Eve!!! 🎄So happy...

Who’s been doing Christmas shopping? 🛒 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼With a baby this year, I’ve decided to do most of my Christmas shopping online to save myself the crowds and stress. 💻 We will be travelling more next year so I thought it would be a good idea to buy some travel related Christmas presents! 🎁 I have been buying a lot from @amazonfashionau for convenience and also their wide selection of products. They recently launched a new category “The Travel Store”, from carry bags and luggage to headphones and Kindles. You can even view travel products by type of trip you are taking, be it beach 🏖 or adventure holiday ⛺️, hiking or skiing ⛷. I picked up some great Christmas gifts including this Delsey cabin luggage! ✈️ Any excuse to travel more right?! 🌎#amazonfashionau #getitonamazon

When you and your friends have a Xmas jammies party and you all turn up in the same jammies! Ok, so maybe us parents thought it would be cute if they were all matching! 😂 It sure made for a memorable Xmas celebrations! Swipe left to see Aria and I in our matching jammies! 👩🏻👧🏻

Precious moments with Aria! ❤️ This is her first time playing at the beach and she loved it! 🌊 When it comes to playing in the sun, I am very prone to freckles so I’ve always applied sunscreen daily since I was in high school. When it comes to Aria I wanted to make sure her skin is protected too. I’ve been using the @avene_au Sunscreen Spray for Children SPF 50+ (for 6 months+) for the face and body and it’s water-resistant so perfect for the beach or pool. ☀️⛱ The texture is non-greasy and is quickly absorbed by the skin. You can’t even feel you are wearing it!

Christmas is too sparkly, said no one ever! 🌟 adding some sparkle and shine to my holiday wardrobe 🎄with shoes and accessories from @charleskeithofficial holiday collection! ✨ #charleskeithofficial #CHARLESKEITHCelebrates

Christmas is too sparkly, said...

Time for my favourite kind of blue, Tiffany blue! Excited to pop into one of only four @tiffanyandco pop up boutiques in the world! 😍 My eyes went straight towards the Tiffany vending machine filled with their timeless perfumes. Wrapped in Tiffany blue, it’s easily the most chic thing to fall out of a vending machine in a long time! Next I headed to the personalisation styling bar where I had a tag engraved with an “A” (for Aria) on the front and a image of a fox on the back. 📍Ground floor of @emporiummelbourne! #emporiummagic #atiffanyholiday

Time for my favourite kind...

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

As you may be aware from the proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

Fall decorating presents the opportunity to revel in luxury. Fabrics become more substantial, color palettes transition to rich hues, and just about every design decision for the season revolves around cultivating a cozy living environment. In an effort to help you make your space ideal for fall, a group of design tastemakers reveal the decor trends to expect in homes across the country this season, along with a few lessons you’ll want to consider.

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation in which a high fashion-meets-down home country boy aesthetic really is necessary.

We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

People were absolutely astounded, at least in between that time that they read the Tweet or headline and when they actually go to the details, that Prada was selling a $150 “paper clip.” In reality, of course, it was a sterling silver money clip shaped like a paper clip (and when you really think about it, all clips really do the same thing). $150 is a lot for a paper clip, but it’s actually not that eye boggling when you look at other high-end money clips.

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

    There may be others champing at the bit, but Ralph Lauren’s spring collection proves that he remains the master of all-American fashion. From the blue-and-white striped top paired with a navy floral skirt and accented with a neck scarf, to the matching twinset—its cardigan tied at the waist of a pair of periwinkle pants—the effort was a welcome departure from the decadence we so often expect from a fashion show. (Well, at least most fashion shows.) Lauren also made a great case for the brown leather belt. It will certainly be at the top of many spring shopping lists
