Real Australian Fashion Guide

Today I Love…..Book Bags!!

9 May

You may like to call them novel bags…..and I think they are awesomely novel!

 Who wants to look fashionable and smart all at the same time??!!

 Yep I do – what about you??

 My fashion radar has recently found lovely little handbags and clutches that actually look like real books when you carry them under your arm! Somebody smart is onto something here……

My recommendation is you get a title that you have actually read……

Otherwise if you happen to be approached with questions about the ‘book’ you are carrying – you should be prepared to RUN….and quickly so you don’t have to try and answer questions on a fabulous topic that you have absolutely no idea about!

Get yours here:

Today I Love……Vitamin Me…….found in one special place in Australia!

9 Feb

My lovely blog readers already know how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE Queensland!!

Queensland just has that special something…….

Tthe untouchable thing that makes you feel revived and more alive after you visit.

If I don’t get to visit at some time at least once a year, it makes me feel a little deflated!

This year, I will be overdue for a top-up of my Vitamin Me levels so if everything (fingers crossed!) goes according to my financial plan…..we will again be visiting the extended family in the fabulous northern state!

I find a holiday to Queensland is one of the easiest destinations to pack for. Bikinis, shorts, a few skimpy tops, thongs (and a back up pair), a pair of nice shoes, one pair of jeans, tracky dacks – and I’m done!

This is due to the fact that I can’t help myself when shopping in Queensland and I end up buying a lot of lovely items and have to sit on my suitcase to get it to close when returning; that’s all part of the fun though!

Note: I WISH this was my lovely designer suitcase!

My essential Vitamin is S for Shopping; so the less I pack for Queensland is always better for me!

All of my trips to Queensland are also never complete without a few special destinations that I like to visit. If I don’t get to see them, I feel like I haven’t even been there, or relaxed and unwound completely.

Today I’m sharing a few secrets with you as well so concentrate now folks!

These are my must see places that can boost your Vitamin Me levels by giving you memorable and unforgettable sights, tastes, sounds and smells!

Vitamin A: Awe-inspiring Natural Bridge, in the south-eastern area of our sunny northern state, always takes my breath away – and everyone else I take to visit there as well!

Vitamin B: Bargain hunting at Pacific Fair – my idea of shopping heaven! I simply must spend an entire day here (if not more – pretty please!) and shop till I totally drop!

Vitamin C: Coolangatta Beach – not too busy with some of the best scenery to be found in Queensland, this beach is one of my favourites and many a lazy holiday afternoon will find me here with my favourite book and plenty of sunscreen!

Vitamin D: Dreamworld – it returns me to the carefree days of my childhood, when it was so exciting that I thought I would burst when visiting!

Vitamin E: Eumundi Markets – the 1 hour drive north from Brisbane is a pleasure when you know what is awaiting you at the end! This place is like a market on steroids! Hint, hint: Remember which vitamin you are taking here and make sure that your car boot is E for EMPTY for the return trip!

Vitamin K: Kooky and creepy artefacts and attractions at Ripleys Believe It or Not! Odditorium in Surfers Paradise are always a hit with the (big) and little kids and make me go “Oooooh” or “AH!” around every corner!

I also admit to a slight overdose on the Passionfruit, Banana, Mango and Pineapple variety of Vitamins when in Queensland because I find them so readily available and much better quality. They are also cheaper than in dreary old Melbourne where I have seen Passionfruit for up to $1.50 each!

Although it is so much fun overdosing on these extra special vitamins and my healthy body thanks me for it as well!

I really hope everyone gets the opportunity to visit these places one day (if you have not already) so you can also experience the exquisite beauty and pure bliss to be found when you visit Queensland and you can also find a top up for your Vitamin Me levels!

You can check out all of the wonderful sights to see, do and try at www.queensland.com or just click on the pics and links above and they will take you straight to heaven!

Don’t forget to let me know if you find any other ‘essential vitamins’ that should be added to my list!

I think this place (and this day bed) should be an essential for everyone!

Lizard Island

On my to-do list is definitely to go and see one of these cute little guys!

I’ll leave you with a picture of one of the most special pieces of nature I have ever found – in Queensland of course!!

Today I Love….the gorgeous things….

I have recently calculated that…..

I feel I may be a better person on my own….left to my own devices…. I feel I produce more – of me, at least- what does this mean? Why do I do more on my own? Do you do more on your own??!??

Talk to me……….

Today I Love…..is it a spacesuit, a sleeper or a festival outfit??

Today I love…..celebrating a champion in my family!

25 Jul

We are all soooooo proud right now!

What an achievement…..after so many years and so much effort and so many setbacks and so much bad luck!

Who would have thought that the boy from the bush who was kicked in the head by a horse all that time ago, would one day win Le Tour De France – one of the world’s most oldest and prestigious races ever! 

Well, we knew it! I can tell you that much! We dreamed and hoped and prayed and wished that it would happen one day; if and when everything ever fell into the right place for him!

I remember when he was kicked by that horse, but all I remember is my parents telling me was that it occurred and that Cadel was going to be OK. Of course, that’s what all parents tell kids when they are not really sure themselves….but he pulled through that and now look at what he has pulled off! You know what I think? Everything happens for a reason and this was meant to be for him.  

But finally, we can say that our Cadel Evans is the first Australian to win the tour and the oldest person as well!


So when will he come home? Well, I ask you – can he? In six months time or more, will he be able to walk down the street unnoticed? A lot of people would have recognised him before, but now?! WOW is all I can say!

I hope to see him very soon, but I don’t think I will be that lucky. It’s a bit hard for him to even see his Mum and Dad now as I heard on the radio today from my Uncle! After winning the tour, apparently Cadel is now committed to compete in more races overseas, but then I also saw that he promised the Tour Down Under he would return for 2012; if he won the Tour. So your guess is as good as mine. If I ever get to talk to him, I might get permission to share some more lovely pics with you.

I just hope that he is enjoying his well-earnt time in the spotlight right now, because he really does deserve it.

He is now the most famous person in our family – well, that I know of! Our late grandfather was well-known but not an accomplished athlete! Our grandfather passed just over a year ago, and I know that Cadel would have been thinking of him while racing. How sad that he was not able to be here to see this wonderful, history-making occasion as well…. 😦

I better lift my game, hey peeps!?! 🙂

Cadel did this not only for himself, but for all the people around him and all those that love or have loved him and supported him the whole way. As his lovely wife said, “All of Australia, My Boy’s family and friends – on earth and in the sky – were pushing him today…” – what a lovely sentiment! Is he a hero? That’s up to you my friends, but he is my hero now for the pure fact that he has strived and strived to get to where he deserves to be!

His poor father is now being hounded by the media – “12 live TV interviews 120 radio talkbacks including 2 with BBC, 30 odd newspaper stories…” So I can just imagine what his mother is experiencing as well!

Everybody say YAY for Cadel!

What a great life and can you imagine how surreal this all feels for us now?

This is a great pictorial of a wonderful person and his achievements……..HINT: click on the pic below……

And one from me……..

Love ya cuz xxxooo


Today I love…….Yelling AT Cadel!

23 Jul

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you may have already seen this post about Cadel Evans……http://wp.me/pU9S6-iJ

 Most of you already know he is my cousin – but if you don’t; well you might very soon because we are all yelling GO Cadel at the top of our lungs in my family right now!

 The earliest memory I have of Cadel is when we were about 5 years old. Living with his parents in Woolgoolga; he rode his BMX bike with a passion! His first bike came at the age of 3 (with training wheels) but when we were five, I don’t remember seeing them at all!

 So I’ve gone through the archives and have some lovely (and few cringeworthy!) pics to share with you all……..

Everybody say awwwww…….I remember his Mum loved horses and he had a faithful and well loved puppy. Cadel was always a very gentle, quiet and shy person and when he eventually joined me at Eltham High School, he blended into our group well and still speaks to some of his old mates. He did quite a bit of skateboarding back then as well. Cadel is a true-blue genuine Aussie bloke; who would do anything for his friends and family.

 The Tour de France is a beautiful and long-winding dance of men and bikes through the most stunning countryside I have ever seen. I love seeing all the old castles; some which were built in the 13 and 1400’s! Amazing stuff…….

You can follow his lovely wife Chiara Passerini, who is constantly giving us updates on le Tour; on twitter here: @ChiaraPasserini or the @CadelOfficial feed is also updated regularly with his progress.

Just to make it fair and embarass myself a little as well:

Today I love….An Infinite amount of Space….

17 Dec

An infinite amount of…..S.P.A.C.E

No, no, no, not Space as in the Final Frontier either!

I NEED (not just want!) an infinite amount of space in my home!!!

My blog is my reflective journal, beheld within are the many treasures I have discovered and now fondly hold dear to my heart.

My own personal space…..is at times both a wonderful and very stressful thing!!!

My partner is a furniture removalist and unfortunately we have no room left for any more pieces of random furniture on our house!  As a self-confessed hoarder, it is really not possible to obtain any more useless and unnecessary possessions!

One day, I hope to have the time to clear my clutter but I do not foresee this in the near future!  I have an emotional attachment to my things as well – when I was about 15 and my parents separated all of my childhood possessions were donated to charity and I never saw any of the things I owned from birth ever again.  I was also robbed recently twice in three weeks and that has made me a little more careful that I remember not to leave my diamond ring on the lounge room coffee table before I go to work = silly girl!  So at least I know WHY I like to hang on to things!!! It’s an emotional attachment and a great fear that my possessions will be lost from me forever again.

One of my favourite pastimes right now is watch MTV Cribs.  I just can’t get enough of looking at the beautiful homes the celebrities have.  I watch the show and dream that I may be able to have all those wide and wonderful open spaces, large lounge rooms, super huge wardrobes the size of half of my current house, beds that you could fit 10 people in and spa baths that are the size of my current bedroom.  Then I look around at my space and sigh….perhaps one day I will have the room to move that I so desire….then maybe I can get more stuff! Ha Ha Ha NO! I hear you scream!

Here is a part of Christina Aguilera’s house – you can find more pics here

I believe I could utilise my current space a lot better.  Have you ever pondered the possibilities of space?

Space is an infinite thing but we impose limitations and boundaries are self imposed within the construct of our minds.  Space ebbs onwards into the universal echelons, so vast; our wee human minds find difficulty in comprehending the enormity.  Yet as humans, we have the power to determine the boundaries, qualities and characteristics of our space.  Space is therefore multidimensional, the channel in which individual and collective action arises simultaneously.  This interconnected platform provides a medium for communication whereby time, distance and location are traversed both locally and globally from the comfort of our homes.  Yet how we choose to interact with this space has the potential to impact our social, economic and environmental ethos from both a personal and planetary perspective.

What is this space I am eluding too?

A very good friend of mine is an interior designer and you can just tell she cringes every time she comes through my door!  But at least she appreciates my personal style and ditto.  She  does give me some hints and tips occasionally to try and help me improve my mess of a lounge room!  And (silly or smart??!) me has also just started a jewellery and accessories business from home, so we have boxes of jewellery, handbags, clothing etc. just to add to the rest of the things I bring home nearly every day!  Wonderful……I hear you say – I will never have infinite space!!!

Something that really creeps me out is when people invade on my personal space… I don’t mind close talkers or that sort of thing but if someone stands too close behind me in a queue, I cannot resist inching forward to get away from them!

So…..Space….I don’t have enough…..I will probably never have enough or be satisfied with the space I have…BUT if I could have an infinite amount…..all my problems would therefore be solved…….

I have been selected from a handful of bloggers to participate in a competition for Vodafone to promote their lovely new product above; which I believe I will be needing very soon!

I’m not too sure how you can help me win, but please feel free to leave a comment or rate this post if you do or do not like it!

Today I love….following me

15 Dec

I got something new today……

I love Christmas…I spoil myself and everyone else I possibly can….and this year I will be donating to my favourite charities and a few more as well!!

Merry Christmas my lovely little readers!!!

Love and hugs from me!!

Today I love….The 7 wonders of Replica Jewellery

12 Sep

Thank the lordie* for replica jewellery as there is no way I would have ever gotten my hands on genuine beautiful pieces like these in this lifetime! (#1)

No, it’s not counterfeit folks – it’s replica and I believe it should be advertised as such. I don’t agree with counterfeit as it is misleading the customer. If it was counterfeit it would be sold at the same price as the original brand and also would be an exact copy of the product, marketed and advertised as the actual product, which is a complete lie to the consumer. (#2)

I believe designer goods are overpriced for a start. You need a god-damn personal loan to buy anything in the fashion pages these days. It’s just ridiculous. Rich, large conglomerates just keep getting richer and charging over $1000 for a pair of shoes is not economical to 90% of the population and I know for a fact the cost to make them would have been less than 20% of that! (#3)

I have dreamed and wished to be part of the club and for someone to buy me Tiffany – anything will do! How lame is that? Now I have my replica Tiffany and I am pacified and very satisfied. (#4)

Like the recent Hermes handbag on ebay – if you could afford that, would you really want to buy it – sight unseen on ebay of all places? No, I don’t think so! I have seen the Hermes factory and I know the craftmanship that goes into each and everyone of these bags but I believe that they are simply not worth the price tag!! (#5)

Sure, some people can spot the fake but you have to know what you are looking for and why waste time doing this? Spend time finding the best replica you can for a price you can afford I say!! Who agrees with me? (#6)

Oh, goody look what I found: The 5 most expensive handbags in the world…let’s prove my point right now…..

As the writer of the article says:

“You need one thing when you think about shopping for a designer handbag and that is money.”

Yep, you don’t need to think – you don’t need brains – because guess what? Money can’t buy you brains baby!!! But it can buy you a designer bag?? Woop-de-doo-dah!! I’d rather invest my money to make more or put it into bloody bricks and mortar – at least I’m getting some value for my $ as that is worth somewhere near the price you will pay for it!!! (#7)

The bags above seem to be one-offs or limited editions – this is the sort of luxury bag available to us plebs:

Australians are real deal on fake designer goods

Bridie Smith
June 22, 2006

AUSTRALIANS are the third most likely to buy fake designer goods because we think the real thing is over-priced, according to an international survey released today.

The online survey by AC Nielsen found only Canadians (37 per cent) and Americans (35 per cent) were more willing than Australians (29 per cent) to buy counterfeit goods and pass them off as the real deal.

“We love a great fake,” AC Nielsen executive director Nicole Torkar said. “People don’t see the value in the real designer brands because the imitation can be hard to spot.”

Ms Torkar said the survey revealed Australians felt designer goods were over-priced (88 per cent) and almost half (48 per cent) said designer brands were not necessarily of higher quality than standard brands.

“It’s more what’s wearable and what’s affordable, which is quite a practical approach,” she said. “We just don’t buy into it.”

The survey, taken last November, quizzed 23,500 people in 42 countries and exposed Australians as some of the more sceptical consumers when it comes to the value placed on designer brands.

The global results found Hungarians were the most likely to purchase designer brands (66 per cent) followed by consumers in Hong Kong (49 per cent) and Greece (34 per cent). Only 17 per cent of Australians were willing to buy the real thing.
