Tailored Talk with Olivia Mennie

I first discovered the gorgeous Olivia Mennie after she left a comment on one of my Instagram posts. Me being me, I continued to stalk her on Instagram  (we all know we do it!). I was so impressed, and honestly, a little intimidated by what I saw! Not only is she uniquely stunning, she is a model, full time uni student and an influencer. And while juggling all of this, and a recent bout of flu, she also managed to find the time to answer my questions…   How did you get into modelling? About two years ago now I was…

Good Taste Series Competition at Hyatt Hotel Canberra

If you happen to follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will know that I love my food. Emphasis on the LOVE. The first descriptor on my Instagram profile is ‘Bread Enthusiast’. Last Friday night I had the opportunity of a lifetime to see some of Australia’s finest chef’s compete in the ASPAC 2017 Good Taste Series Competition at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra. It is the first time the competition has been held outside of Northern America, with the Hyatt Hotel Canberra being the first hotel in Australia to host the event. I was honoured and privileged to be a…

Veuve Clicquot Truffle Dinner at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra

When I told my Mum that I had been invited to a Veuve Clicquot Truffle Dinner at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra her first reaction was excitement. And then, a few remarks revealed that she may have been slightly jealous. She and I both knew that Veuve Clicquot and the Hyatt Hotel Canberra are synonymous with quality and excellence. And just like my previous times at this excellent hotel, my night was one to remember. It was an experience I will never forget. To begin with, the staff at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra, always have a way of making this small…

The T-Shirt Everyone is Wearing

I’ve always liked Instagram more than Facebook or Twitter. Out of all my social media, it’s the one I use the most. I guess I prefer the simplicity of it. The photographs of beautiful clothes, and stylists strutting their stuff at Fashion Weeks around the globe. Not to mention the epic street style blogs that catch a glimpse of the best and unique outfits on a daily basis. Scrolling through my Instagram over the past month I’ve noticed an increase in the number of ‘Gucci’ T-shirts worn by bloggers and personalities. My first choice was available but totally out of…

Took My Fancy

Feature Image Sourced from: https://www.instagram.com/rebelmuse_au/  At the end of each day, when I’m sitting in bed with a mug of hot peppermint tea in my claws, I take a moment to indulge myself. I routinely scroll through beautiful pieces of clothing and gorgeous shoes which I will then continue to dream about once my head has hit the pillow. So here are just a few of those things that are super cute and utterly adorable that I’ve been staring at for the past few weeks. If only I had a million dollars. Either that or a silver fox sugar daddy. Ted…

My Mum Carole and her Candles

My Mum loves to entertain. She loves everything about it. Mum loves getting a great group of people together to have an even greater time. Mum loves making ridiculous amounts of rich food for her guests to enjoy. Mum loves getting dressed up and donning all her rose gold jewellery and sparkly kitten heels. Mum loves making a space in her home where people will feel warm and welcome. And last, but certainly not least, my Mum looovvvves lighting hundreds and hundreds of candles to create the perfect ‘ambience’ for her social soiree. Take a step into our family home…

What I Wore: Lusso VIP Opening

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with my fellow bloggers for a sneak peak of the Lusso Luxury Boutique in Manuka,Canberra. Leather, Fur, Handbags and Boots all straight from the runways of Milan were on display as we nibbled on canapés and sipped on Moet (I don’t actually drink, but sometimes I like to pretend to #pretendadult). The Brumbies made a guest appearance, and proceeded to tell us which items of clothing they would like to see on a woman. As you can imagine, it was rather entertaining. I organised my outfit for the event the week…

Trends of the Moment

Last weekend I celebrated my Cousin Jack’s 21st birthday. At the event three out of the six women were wearing an off the shoulder top. What are the current fashion trends and why are they trending?   Off the Shoulder It is comfortable. For women with larger breasts we are still able to wear a bra, a feat that is not often possible with trends such as cut outs and low backed bodysuits. They are practical. You can wear an off the shoulder top with boyfriend jeans, a denim skirt, shorts or even leggings. This type of top is flattering…

An Afternoon at Prime 7: Behind the Scenes with Diana Cheetham

Television. That autonomous technology that allows us to communicate, daydream with our eyes open, entertain and inform. The time waster behind those unfinished assignments, dog eaten homework and weary eyes at work. How often do we all sit down in front of the screen and actually consider how it all comes to form? I had no clue. I had spent very little time considering all the effort behind the scenes until last Thursday afternoon when I was invited by Fashfest Makeup Director Diana Cheetham to gain an exclusive look behind the scenes at Prime 7 Canberra. I guess you could…
