Rock Chick

I don’t really like rock concerts, but I do like dressing a tad ‘rock’ once in a while. Am also thinking this outfit would be amaze with a pair of black suede ankle boots….am building up to that purchase because I need to justify buying something ill-designed for hot weather. But then again, fashion isn’t about being comfortable is it?

I love animal print. Leopard, zebra, tiger….you name it, but in small doses. I don’t buy into ‘animal-over-load’ as I call it (leopard top+belt+shoes = offensive leopard explosion)

Casual Dots

By now you are aware of my slightly obsessive love for polka dots. This little number is super light-weight, perfect for summer, outdoor markets, over a bikini to the beach, picnics….I love it’s versatility and pockets.

I always chuckle at my pics when I see myself in flats, standing on tippy-toes. That’s the sign of a heel-loving girl!

Remington Pearl

My long-trusted 8-year-old GHD broke while I was in Japan (horror horror! but the hotel got me a replacement – phew)  There weren’t any other options 8 years ago, but now!? it is insane how much choice there is! I spent hours playing and testing and finally choose the Remington Pearl – heavenly!

Most of all I love the heat control – for straightening I don’t need it as hot because my hair is only slightly wavy, but for curls (which my hair repels) I crank her up to 220 degrees! 10 seconds to full heat & 3m cable for dancing. Impressed.

VDO Tutorials on how to curl here I need to study these as I always end up with hair jutting out at 90 degree angle!

Double Denim

Told you I would be experimenting the death out of this top! Here it is, dressed down with shorts and loafers.

Ordinarily I would NEVER ‘double-denim’, reminds of the disaster that was Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake so many years ago when they did the matching denim patch-work outfits. But this works. Don’t you think?

My hair is styled because I spent an entire afternoon looking to replace my beloved GHD which broke after 8 years and are not stocked in Thailand (small tear) I will blog the replacement soon xxx

Denim & Sequin

I have always been on the look-out for the perfect denim shirt. It has to be the right colour, fit and softness. And I found it on Sunday! I am totally excited to experiment with heaps of different combinations. Watch this space!

Back to Brunette

After 6 months of having more fun as a blond, I have gone back to my roots, literally. What do you think?

Spending 3 luxurious hours in my local Toni & Guy allowed me some precious Vogue reading. I simply adore these two casual looks (Jen and Gerard Darel styling) Both are making me re-consider navy blue.

Also, how awesome is the new GHD hairdryer? I simply have to get myself one of these beauties (check out that nozzle!!) 2,100 watts, ionic technology and a 3 meter cable (don’t you just LOVE being able to waft around your bedroom!)

Stripes and Colour

I love how the naughty luminous tangerine is peeking out from underneath this little jacket, like it has an attitude of its own.
