Cosmopolitan and City


Ok. I must admit it. I felt like I was losing a bit of spark in my life,….. Or my personality…. Whichever….. I felt like the joy that I mentioned in my previous blog was actually going away. Which I DO NOT want!!!!! 
I had so much joy and excitement in Melbourne when socialising with people, that when I moved to a smaller and isolated place I felt I was becoming dull. 

Driving to Perth I was thinking about this…… Well, dwelling on it and the feeling of adventure propped up within me!!!!!! The excitement is coming back again!!! Slowly, slowly…..


A friend in Melbourne once told me that I was never too short of words…. I felt like I was losing that too and I KEEP thinking about the time she said that to me. I ask myself, am I still like that!?

Is it leaving me? I want to still be a breath of fresh air wherever I go! Whether I am storytelling or giving my life story, I want to be consistent and on a balanced level and I don’t want it to go away.

Well, I get excited when going to Perth……. Because it’s a major city. The buzz of the city life. It’s what GIVES me that buzz, and I love and enjoy talking with city people. 

Don’t get me wrong, I am starting to enjoy the country too. I like the balance of city and country. If I could choose just one, …….. It would be the city!!!!! Just the sound of trams dinging by, the rush of shopping, and going places, it’s such a thrill!!!!!! And that’s what bursts me with excitement!!!!!!! 

I miss the old GPO in Melbourne, which is now H&M and the Bourke street mall….. David Jones and Myer….. Walking down the mall or Melbourne Central in Italian Leather Boots and an Armani jacket and a pink Oroton bag….. Yep, I will always be a city girl at heart. It’s just IN me. 

I feel like I could write a novel on a city chick in Melbourne….. Something similar to Carrie Bradshaw….. Without the sex talk. I wonder what it would be like if I wrote about a Footscray girl….. Well, that would be me. I am sure I can come up with a story or two! I know all about Footscray life!!! Well, not so much anymore….. But I have a feel for the place and I feel I could come up with something definitely. Oooo a project to add to my life!!!!! 

If you ever end up being in Footscray, try Vittoria Cafe….. In the mall…. I had this dish called Salted Fish and Fried Rice, or something like that…. And I had it for lunch almost every day when I was working at Thomson Real Estate in 2013. Coffee there is good too! 

Also, try Cafe Cui…… Opposite the Footscray station….. Great new little possy!!! And they say they “bring New York to Melbourne”! 

I am sssooooo excited!!!!! Reiss will be opening up soon…. The British label and I can not tell you HOW excited I am….. Except that I’m not in Melbourne, but when I go in September this year, if it is open, it will be my FIRST stop!!!!! 

AND I will be looking for more RepliKates!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

So! What gives you a buzz!!??? What sort of things can you do to add excitement in your life!!????

7 Sparkly Shoes


Not too long ago I finished watching “The real housewives of Melbourne“. Some parts were a little superficial and there was a bit of cattiness in it, but sometimes I just have the mood to just let go and watch a bit of “trash”!!

Gina Liano is one of the characters and she has also bought out her own line of shoes!! Follow her here on Twitter. Most of them are glittery and so sparkly!!! They are all $440 and on her website. You can also buy her autobiography, Fearless for $30. I bought it in Perth before I went to Melbourne a couple of months ago and the criminal barrister has a lot to share, also including a cancer battle she went through as well. I took a picture of it on my Instagram. It is cheaper on The Book Depository and the kindle is much cheaper as well. I was most impressed with her writing, and I made a comment and she commented on my Instagram!!!! ❤

I have been needing some shoes that scream “sparkle”!!!

Here are some top shoes that sparkle like diamonds and like a zillion dollars:

1.  Gina Silver – Can also be Rose Gold which is embellished in crystals and is 5 inches high!!!

GINA SILVER

2. Head over Heels by Dune Audrine Gold Glitter Heeled Court Shoes – $93 on ASOS

3. Aldo Frius Champagne $80 – These Aldo shoes are a party goer! The sparkle in them will be the disco light of the night!!!

GOLD SHOES

4. Opus Glitter – Gold Penny Loves Kenny – $59.99

5. Pink INC Sinner – $99.95 Sleek and GOLD metallic pointed toes. The ICONIC brings out more on SALE.

6. CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA FORZIERI Monroe Rose Gold Metallic Leather Pump $417- I love the name of this shoe because there are two princesses with those names!! It’s a favourite colour and is plain but shimmery at the same time. Very nice for a special occasion.

What a girl wears as a shoe can say a lot about her personality. If you’re not the “sparkle” type then try Diana Ferrari – Lorikeet Black for $139.95 or some Boden New British Cicely Heel for $168.38, a comfortable high heel that would be great for work or going out! Boden New British is a brand I just discovered, check out their DRESS collection. You will love what is NEW in and some online exclusives.

Happy SHOE SHOPPING!!!!

How to look like a Melbourne Lady: Accessorise

This is my second blog and I think I’m starting to enjoy this! I recommend to any girl that needs to clear her head and put their mind to some use, or are even getting bored with their life should start doing it. It is enlightening and after doing just one blog I feel a sense of fulfillment and achievement. It was something I desired to do but was feeling a little intimidated as there are sooo many bloggers out there!!! From girls in London, New York, etc, there are alot of amazing women out there that are intellectual and share unique information that I thought I probably don’t have anything to share but EVERYONE has something to share. I’m a believer of Personal Development. Do a course. Learn something new. There is so much to do. I am amazed at women who write books. I personally think you have to have an amazing mind to come up with stories and information. It’s not easy. Although, I have heard on the other hand anyone can write a book. I have started one myself and am looking forward to coming up with a story that I do not know about yet!! It’s a fiction book and I’ve started the first chapter and onto the next!  For a good story, and if you like fiction, I recommend The Governess of Highland Hall. It is by Carrie Turansky and you will find a picture of the book on my Instagram page. It is a stunning read and if you’re suffering withdrawal symptoms from Downton Abbey, it is a must read. So easy to read and yet, stunning.

This blog was meant to be about wearing white but I have gone on a tangent!!!

Moving on, if you need new heels I totally recommend these leather heels from the Wittner Store. Go to http://www.wittner.com.au. They are $179.95. Pair it with a Swarovski leather stainless-steel and crystal watch for $499 and go to www.swarovski.com to buy it. It will sparkle against your skin and make you look dazzling, and then buy a Karen Millen leather bag on the Karen Millen website.

This is a simple, elegant handbag that is sure to grab any girls attention. You will be on your way to looking pristine and amazingly gorgeous. These accessories would look great for an office outfit or even if you are just walking the streets of Melbourne. It will make you look like a “Melbourne Lady”.
