Here we go again – a few of the bits and pieces I’ve fallen in love with this week.
Last week, I popped along to the Karl Lagerfeld/Net-a-porter launch in London’s Convent garden to take a few snaps. Loads of fashion fans turned up for the historic event. What fun.
I’m always stumped when I’m asked about food in Australia. Apart from Pavlova, lamingtons, vegemite, and the generic barbie, we don’t really have a national dish we can call our own (feel free to disagree, I’m happy to be proven wrong). … Continue reading
Of course we have more than the aforementioned homegrown magazine titles. I’ve already featured Grazia during the Australian invasion, now it’s Vogue’s and Harper’s Bazaar’s turn.
