"LIVE IN THE SUNSHINE, SWIM IN THE SEA, DRINK THE WILD AIR". – RALPH WALDO EMERSON

As I sit here and write this morning sipping on green mint tea and listening to the rain trickle down my window it dawns on me that Summer has been gone now for eighteen days.. (say what!) Although it has felt like Summer here on the Gold Coast these past few weeks with hot days and humidity still.. the nights have been feeling much cooler and the sun is rising much later each morning.

Summer is one of my favorite seasons, in all it's carefree, sun filled, hot, happy glory! (ahh come back!). Now don't get me wrong I love different things about each season for sure..winter fashion and getting cozy in warm blankets on cold days and nights..dreamy! But I am most fond of the Summertime and love to keep it's memory fresh in my mind each year.

For me to keep it alive I love having photographs, ornaments and bits and pieces around my home that remind me of the Summer that was.. so on those gloomy cooler days when my toes just can't get warm I can take my mind to that beautiful warm blissful place & bask in all its memorable glory. (plus play 'Im walking on sunshine in the background" haha).

KEEPING SUMMER MEMORIES

A few tips on how to keep those Summertime memories alive:

Memory Box: Having a box full of memories of everything that made your Summer special and pulling it out when you need to refresh or dream. Fill it with polaroids, shells, precious gifts, letters, poems or whatever was special to you.

Photographs: Polaroids or photographs in frames on pinned into a board in your home can brighten your day each time you walk past them. Picture Postie is an app that creates beautiful printed memories straight from your Instagram feed, they are the modern day polaroid.

Memories In A Jar: Filling a jar with sand and shells from your local beach and having it on display in your home as a centre piece or bedside decoration.

Seaside Styling: Style you home with the beach in mind.. think anchors, stripes, coral ornaments and the list goes on to suit your style.

Music: One of my favourite ways of evoking memories and emotion is listening to music. It has a way of bringing you back to a certain moment as though you are actually there in your mind.

FASHION WEEK

Fashion week shows Talulah & Minty Meets Munt

Last Thursday night I headed to the QT Fashion Week & Awards to see the  Talulah    SS13/14 &  Minty Meets Munt  SS13/14 shows with friends and colleges Cara & Amy from  Anna & Ruth Boutique  & to watch some friends walking in the shows.  I loved Talulah's collection, the colours and angular cuts were beautiful & the soft pastel tones really stood out to me.  Minty Meets Munt had a fun, fresh & 90's feel to it with palm trees and pops of bright blues, greens & yellows! Oh and the music for the shows was perfect.. it had a fun upbeat feel which suited both collections. I was in a bright mood so opted for my  ASOS  tailored pants with  By Johnny's  Petal Knit flair top and my oh so comfy  Therapy  pointed heels. - Top | By Johnny Pants | ASOS.com Cuff | Sportsgirl Bag | Vintage Shoes | Therapy

Last night I headed out to the   Sneak Peek of the QT Fashion Week & Awards   at  QT's Stingray Lounge & Bar  with my girlfriend Kate & we met up with our other girlfriend Emily & saw lots of familiar faces out & about. The night was fun, a good atmosphere with music, fire twirling, a display of gown made out of fresh flowers, a giant shoe display, canapé's .. and a little wine was involved too.. of course!  For my outfit I opted for a simple black and white number with fine detailing in my top of lace, a leather cut out high waist skirt with pops of neon pink and yellow to set it off.  -  Top | Witchery Skirt | Witchery Bag | Le Deux Shoes | Therapy

FLORAL STORM

Headed out to shoot with Anna & Ruth Boutique

Today I spent most of the day at home working on a few projects for Jeskaa Designs. I had a shoot with the girls at Anna & Ruth this afternoon.. just as a big storm was rolling in we did some product shots in the studio and squeezed in a few blog shoots outdoors before the rain came down too much.. A fun afternoon! - Sunglasses | Dotti Jacket | Valleygirl Dress | Lumier from Anna & Ruth Cuff | Cotton On Bag | Collette Shoes | Novo

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Kellie & Dave's Garden Wedding

I attended my cousins beautiful wedding at Tamborine Gardens on Saturday April 7th 2013. The day was overcast and cold up in the mountains, but it was warm with love & smiles celebrating the two love birds. 
 The ceremony was in a small stunning chapel filled with family, friends and loved ones.  After the ceremony we got snapped in a few photos then headed off for drinks and canapés. The meals were to die for and dessert was chocolate cake, my favorite! The night was full of fun, laughs and dancing and to end the night on a buzz i caught the bouquet. 
 I wore this simple pastel pink dress from Dissh with soft cream assesories and soft curls. I opted for neutral browns for makeup. I also just had my hair chopped by the lovely Kasey Smallwood at Studio 9 on Chevron Island and I am in love with it!  -
