EDS Slider Graphic

It's been a busy social time around these parts. Christmas do's, end of year break ups and for me last week, two 40th birthday celebrations for friends in addition to my own Birthday Festival. Both my girlfriends' 40ths were held on a weekend morning - brunches - and were a lovely start to the day. Today's everyday style features my outfit from the first birthday celebration.

Christmas Gift Guides & Fashion 2014

Christmas Slider Image

Over the last month, I've published a virtual sleigh full of gift guides. I've tried to cover all of the possible gift giving scenarios - work Kris Kringle, women, men, kids, coaches, teachers - to hopefully provide inspo, ideas and to save you time and money this Christmas. I've had a blast doing it and it's certainly helped me think about and plan my present list. A present audit earlier this … [Read more...]

What to Wear on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve

It seems somewhat trivial to be talking about fashion this week, especially what to wear on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve when we are just plain lucky to be sharing these special days with our loved ones.

Stocking Filler Ideas for Kids (Christmas 2014)

Style and Shenanigans Stocking Filler Ideas Under $15

It's less than two weeks to Christmas. Is that a collective "Eek" I hear? Or was that just me? I've finished my Christmas shopping, at least I think I've pretty much finished but until I get everything out when the kids are not around, I won't quite know for sure. And then no doubt I'll be bolting up to the shops at midnight in the days before Christmas. Been there done that? One … [Read more...]

What to Wear at the Beach + Aquacove Giveaway

What to Wear at the Beach Slider

This time next month, I'll be spending long lazy days kicking back on the beach. I'll be meandering through yet another novel while the kids play beach cricket, make sand castles and new friends. I'll be feeling the hot sun on my shoulders, the crunch of the sand underneath my feet and the relief of no deadlines, commitments, extra curricular activities and relentless lunchbox … [Read more...]
