Net-a-porter’s wares might be out of reach for most of us, but that’s what sale season is for, right?
The covetable online boutique has cut prices by up to 70% across a crazy number of products. There are 65 pages of sale items in the clothing section – I jest not!

Here are a few of my favourite (and affordable!) quote prints.
We all have a friend or family member who responds to a request for their Christmas wish list with a “But, I already have everything I could ever possibly want”. Pretty unhelpful, right?
I actually caught myself saying this the other day and gave myself a mental slap on the wrist. I am incredibly fortunate, but I’ve got to admit that despite this, I still spy things I wish were mine on a regular basis. What woman doesn’t? So, if you’re faced with finding the perfect gift for someone who says they have it all (news flash: they’re probably just being polite), here’s what’s on my wish list this festive season. They’re the kind of things people might not buy for themselves, so I’m hoping they’ll help to give you some inspiration when you hit the shops.
I’ve been paying more attention than normal Christmas-inspired fashion this year, and I’ve been surprised to find one unexpected piece growing on me: the festive sweater.
(Oblige me for just a few minutes and put aside the fact that we’re going into summer in Australia, which means most of us couldn’t wear one of these even if we wanted to.)
For me, the thought of a Christmas-themed sweater initially conjured up images of a miserable looking Bridget Jones, cigarette and glass of chardonnay in hand, at the most boring Christmas party in history. In short – dorkfest. But designers like Moschino, Isabel Marant and Marc Jacobs have completely changed my perspective by releasing some quirky, but incredibly chic options.
I had intended to share some of my fave Instagram pictures here each Sunday, but I’ve been a bit lax this past fortnight. With the silly season approaching, engagements and multiple birthdays happening in my family, I’ve been a little distracted!
The upside is that I now have two week’s worth of photos to share with you – hooray!
Did I mention that I’m obsessed with statement jewellery? Well, true to form, I’ve been eyeing off this piece of Samantha Wills gorgeousness for months now.
I adore the white howlite, rose quartz and black crystal mix, and have even planned all the outfits I would team it with in my head. Does anyone else do that?
I discovered Adore Home Magazine earlier this year, and its bi-monthly issues have been a staple on my iPad ever since.
It’s a beautifully designed publication put together by Brisbane-based graphic designer Loni Parker, that gives you access to gorgeous homes from around the globe and as well as to the latest and greatest homewares.
My little sister is getting married in February, and as maid of honour, it was my duty (and pleasure!) to organise a Kitchen Tea for her.
She’s crystal mad and a real girly girl, so I knew in my mind exactly how I wanted the tea to come together. I envisioned a whimsical garden party, that was quite traditional but still had enough sparkles to satisfy.
So, with a lot of preparation and some major help from the ladies of my family, we managed to put together an afternoon full of pink favours and sparkly treats for her.
Oh, please. Don’t even try to pretend you’re not addicted to Instagram.
There are plenty of things to love about Instagram, but one of my most favourite things about the social network is how it allows me to visually revisit my week – and what a week this one’s been.
