Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Well the day is almost over here in Melbourne and I'm relaxing in an easy chair wearing comfortable clothing to allow for the enormous consumption of food eaten today to not get its revenge on me! After all the preparations,decorations, baking, watching yeast rise and filling the house with the aromas, then eating the results and deciding which cute bunny rabbit chocolate you are going to unwrap and eat, then feel guilty for eating it- can be rather exhausting work indeed! We had a taste of all seasons here with a cool, cloudy morning, rainy afternoon followed by breaks of sunshine that allowed for a nice long nature walk to stretch the legs and stop and sniff the flowers along the way. I hope wherever you are that you spent the day in good company, great food and in peaceful relaxation looking forward to new beginnings, and a new month on our doorstep! xGT

The Independent Woman on show at LMFF

Last Sunday night saw LMFF close a week long fashion extravaganza at Melbourne's Docklands with the Independent Runway, showcasing Australia's emerging and established designers. It's always a buzz to arrive to an empty runway awaiting what will be delivered down its long white path, camera finger eagerly poised and ready. I was not disappointed with the women's wear on offer and started creating mental outfits in my head with each snap on my camera.

West side has a new stylish address

Last Thursday morning I was invited to attend the opening ceremony of the new Highpoint fashion precinct in Maribynong in Melbourne's West. As I mentioned in my previous post, I did not expect that I would end up spending close to 13 hours at the shopping centre, mostly on my feet wandering around. But that is a great testament to the new design and shops on offer that there was so much to see and there was a great flow and energy to the new space.

Get interactive with ETSY

If you are in Melbourne at the moment, you might be aware that a certain fashion festival by the name of LMFF-Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival begins tomorrow. But what you might not know is that there is more to the calendar of events than just runway shows. ETSY, the world's handmade market place has presented an interactive space in Federation Square in the Atrium in conjunction with LMFF which brings together some of Australia's handmade sellers showing off their wares to the public.

Fashion dances to a new beat at Highpoint

Thursday morning I was thrilled to be able to start the day in a shopping centre so close to home that I have been eagerly awaiting the unveiling of. Highpoint Shopping Centre in Melbourne was launching their new fashion precinct after 4 years in the making and 2 years in construction, the $300 million dollar development is set to become the newest and most fashionable address for all your shopping needs. 

Moomba Madness!

March has really kicked off in full swing. It really is March Madness! I can't believe it is already the middle of the month and there is so much in my diary it looks like a mess, I sometimes just need to close it from fear of being overwhelmed! All that coupled with having to cope with a record heatwave here in Melbourne of 9 consecutive days over 30 degrees! Sleep has been an elusive dream and I am yet to catch up on it.
