Kirstie Clements at Westfield

June 29, 2015

Hi all, it’s been a while! I’m just coming out of a very busy time of year at work in the lead up to the End of Financial Year, so looking forward to getting back to regular scheduling.

Before this busy period, I had the great pleasure of being invited to an event at Westfield Marion to celebrate the launch of former Vogue Australia Editor in Chief, Kirstie Clements.

The team at Westfield spared no effort in making the event a huge success, with a beautiful draped ceiling and fern detailing (not forgetting the good food, drinks and company).

Of course, the most anticipated part of the evening was listening to Kirstie recount some of her memories from her time at Vogue Australia, and having the opportunity to ask questions. She offered some career advice about the impact that high attention to detail and immaculate grooming can have on being successful in getting that job you’ve always dreamed of.

That and much more in her newest book, which you can find here ‘Impressive: How to have a Stylish Career’. Have you read any of her books before? What did you think?

Burger Foundry

May 15, 2015

Among my group of friends, I’m quite sure I’m well known for my love of sushi and burgers. So when I was invited to an event at Burger Foundry, I was incredibly excited! As it turned out, unfortunately (*cries*) I was unable to make it – so instead the lucky Fashion Adventurer Boyfriend – a true burger connoisseur – got his chance to make his event debut.

Burger Foundry have long since had an eastside store on Magill Road – and now, one in the westside on Henley Beach Road. Their new store is every bit as ‘Burger Foundry’ as their Magill store, with their same great signature handmade burgers. The Fashion Adventurer Boyfriend was also particularly impressed with the side dishes on offer, and the range of beverages available.

You really can’t go wrong with any restaurant with the Boyfriend seal of approval – so I can’t wait to get the chance to visit the new Burger Foundry store myself!

A Banana Republic

May 11, 2015

One of Adelaide’s favourite hotspots, Republic has relaunched its menu – just in time for Winter!

I went along with some friends after work to their launch party, and enjoyed a drink and some really delicious snacks – particularly the prawn and zucchini fries. Located on the corner of Magill Road and Osmond Terrace, Republic is just a stone throw away from the city and the surrounding trendy eastside suburbs – a perfect stop on the way home from work for a spot of socialising or a bite to eat.

Who said suburban Adelaide can’t be cool?

Wondering Around Downtown

April 22, 2015

Some quick snaps of a lazy weekend outfit one very wet Saturday morning. Getting caught in the wind and rain is something that I absolutely can’t stand…especially when wearing leather and suede!

Nonetheless, I found myself being thoroughly rained on no less than three times this weekend before I could event put up my umbrella. Hopefully we’ll get to enjoy a few more sunny days before Winter sets in.

Gold

April 20, 2015

Not long ago I spent a weekend in the Gold Coast – a place I have a certain fondness for because I lived here while studying at Bond University.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that every time I visit, I always make sure to set aside time for a drink at the Palazzo Versace. This time around, some of our dear friends from New Zealand also came with us and were able to introduce them to Versace’s heavenly cocktails and teas.

My little sister was also kind enough to take a few snaps of my outfit – which unintentionally somewhat matched the colour scheme of Versace’s decor!

Sushi Universe

April 17, 2015

One of my favourite sushi restaurants recently launched their new Winter menu! One evening after work, I went to try some of Sushi Planet‘s new offerings and they’ve really pushed the boundaries in terms of quality and creativity.

Some of my favourites were the edamame bean ships, the aburi salmon roll, tuna sashimi and avocado topped rolls.

One more exciting piece of news – Sushi Planet are now open for lunch! Sushi delivery to the office? I say yes!

TEO x Just Tickled Pink

April 1, 2015

Recently I was invited to a party with two of my favourite things: TEO Magazine and cake.

To celebrate the launch of TEO’s latest issue, we enjoyed high tea at one of the cutest cafés in Adelaide, Just Tickled Pink. Their little treats were super delicious (even the boys couldn’t resist them) and just melted in our mouths.

We got even more spoiled with the most adorable goody bags, full of treats from Lush, Evo, Skandles and Oh Deer Sugar to name a few.

I completely enamoured with TEO Issue #5‘s quirky and cool space themed photoshoots and can’t wait to see what they have in store next (you might even see some of my photography in past issues if you look closely!).

Greenery

March 11, 2015

Not too much to say about this, but it was one outfit that I really loved wearing this summer. I love the fresh print on this Finders Keepers two piece suit, as well as the super sneaky pearls hidden on the heels of my Chanel shoes.
