Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! ♥

Wishing everyone a very joyous and memorable Christmas and a safe and exciting holidays.
I will make this a short little entry to greet everyone on this special period. Wish you all get what you have asked Santa for.

Cannot wait to open presents and be with loved ones. Also followe
d by a very long weekend! Yes, Monday and Tuesday will be public holiday here in Australia and this will be spent catching up with lovely friends, basking in the end of year sales and some well overdue R&R.

I will be posting some of the great pieces I will find in the sales. So have to definitely eat lots of the glorious food for sustenance.

I will leave you for now with one of the quotes that I love and it is this....

"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years"
~Abraham Lincoln

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy holidays everyone! x

Confessions of a Shopaholic ღ

I would like thank everyone for their very sweet comments about my dog Lucky. Am truly thankful for such great and lovely readers.

I have been inactive for the past week due to work and just feeling glum. Today though, I decided to get out of a rut and spend a d
ay shopping with my good friend Zara - a dear close gal pal whom I've known since my uni days. We've shared so much together, even scoured the streets of London. I would like give a cyber kiss and hug to her. She is truly an amazing person and dear friend.

We went shopping today and picked up a couple of nice pieces. Who would have thought that Sydney has such amazingly cute dresses. The cu
rrent obsessions are polka dots, florals and bows. A girl can never be to old to not like floral, bows and polka dots. At least for this girl, I know I will never tire of them.

Just finished watching Confessions of a Shopaholic and such a funny movie for all of you who wants a funny, light hearted chic flick, then check this one out! Amazing outfits and funny slapsticks. Be warned though, not to be take
n seriously. This has an important moral to the story though. Shopping, just like anything is something that one should not do in excess. Forgiveness, love, family, friendships and relationships of course are the main priority.

Why do we shop?

I have this theory why us girls turn to shopping more so than others. Something to do with upbringing and the past. For me, I was brought up with 4 other siblings and while growing up as lovely and amazing my parents were they were unable to get me the wonderful girlie dresses that I wanted (violin playing). So when I began earning my own money I began to go make up for the loss time by stocking my wardrobe with pretty and girlie things. The movie hit so close to home. What is your story? x

Moving along..

My outfit for the day.
Dress: Valley Girl
Sandals: Rubi Shoes
Belt: Chinatown

As a few of you may know, the holiday season in Aust
ralia is a scorcher. It is summer time and out comes the cotton dresses, sandals and sunnies. In particular, I am setting my eyes on the below and am waiting ever so patiently for the end of year sale where hopefully the below will be marked down in price. I just hope that my size will still be available. If not then sadly they were never meant to be mine.

For all who are specially lucky to have white Chr
istmas. Am so extra happy for you! Cardigans, jumpers and boots with bows are just divine!

Drool worthy sandals from Marc Jacobs are number
one on my list.

In the mean time though, no harm getting
guilt free pieces from the local shops and of course Target. Oh thank you Target for hiring fashions buyers to bring us these cute dresses such as the below.

Dress: Target - Free Fushion size 6
Bag: Dangerfield

Ok the below was not from Target but what I purchased earlier with gal pal Zara but didn't have a chance to try on at the shop as for some reason Target has a far better change room. Polka dot short sleeved dress with a button up back.

Dress: George St Sydney

That's all for now. What have you been up to this weekends? Christmas is just around the corner and I think this year will a great one. Have a great weekend! Til next time. x

Lucky to have had you ♧♧♧

I just wanted to share a story with you all. One day, a long time ago, I was studying for a school exam. As usual, I was procrastinating and day dreaming of far pretty things and wanting to go outside and enjoy the sunshine than bury my head in books. While staring into space, I spotted a car stop across the street in front of my window. The man unwound his car window and out came the cutest black pomeranian dog. The car then sped off and the dog sat on the side walk in front of my window.

After an hour or two, the dog was still there. Just sitti
ng and waiting. Curiously, I called my youngest brother and told him what had happened. We then grabbed some meat and lured the dog in. We already had a dog at the time and mum was not very fond of dogs either. So we decided that we will call the animal shelter to get him picked up. After much thought and hard work convincing mum, we got to keep him. That was more than 10 years ago.

Taken Last Christmas Lucky @ 15yo.

Pets bring such joy in our lives don't they? They can be the greatest companion and
give such unconditional love and ask almost nothing in return.

My Lucky passed away on Monday, 13th December 2010 of old age. I hope he knew how happy we are for having him in our lives. May you rest in peace now, wherever you are. I will always love and cherish the joys you have brought into my life. x

Summer Lovin... ♥

Hi all! Hope you all are enjoying your weekends. Had a bit of a worry on Friday as the morning brought light showers here in Sydney but all that cleared and we had a great sunny day up to now.
Still would have liked a white Christmas...but sunny day
s are awesome too cos when the sun is out -- dresses are out too =)

I have been loving Cotton On dresses for a number o
f reasons:

♥ 1. They are so breathable as they are cotton
♥ 2. They are just so cute and all one has to do is accessorise.
♥ 3. Value for money. They may not be no DKNY or Marcs but they give just as much satisfaction (for myself anyways).

Ok 3 reasons..I'm sure there are more. What d
o you think?

Dress: Cotton On
Boots: ROC
Belt: Got this for $1 AUD in Chinatown Sydney (*happy dance*)

Saturday outing. Hubby and I went for a drive after having lunch at a cafe in Crows Nest (Sydney's North).
Had to take a shot of this castle like bridge --- we passed heaps of times but I cannot stop admiring this.

Dress: Loving Things
Sandals: Ruby shoes
Bag: Tote bag by Review
Sunnies: Ray Ban Jackie Ohh III

What have you been up to this weekends? Enjoy the rest of it! x

Retail Therapy

After a long day from studying did a bit of retail therapy and picked up the pretty black bow belt. I am going through a stage of buying belts (on the thrifty side of course).

I picked this one up from Review (Australian brand). It was normally $59.95 but thrifted and got it for $15 --- only thing was that it was flawed on the bottom right ..hardly noticeable and fixable.

Dress: Cotton On $5.00
Belt: Review Australia $15.00

Don't you just love a good bargain?
