ELLERY Resort '15.

Inspiration pours from the cool ease of suburban pools with pieces from the collection reflecting the 
subtlety and delicateness of ripples across a watery surface. English artist David Hockney and his 
graphic swimming pool graphics also inspired designer Kym Ellery, by setting a minimalistic mood 
and dictating a luxurious colour palette of aquatic blues, aubergine, peach and sunny yellow in what 
is a largely monochromatic collection. The silhouettes are flowing yet harbour a refined structure, 
which is perfectly reflective of Ellery's design signature.

Blogger Style | Maiden Sydney.

Brooke Testoni, (formally Cullen), the face behind Maiden Sydney.

Safe to say that she is my number one style inspiration in all of blogland. She has a minimalistic 
approach but knows exactly how to dress up a look with the right accessories, whether it be a 
statement bag on her arm or a great winter coat or jacket tied around the waist.
I find myself swooning over her Celine tote, Dylan Kain shoulder bag (similar) and her blunt blonde locks.

Also, congratulations to the newly married Brooke who married her forever-love last weekend!
(Her Inbal Dror wedding dress was utterly stunning).

Take a peek at her instagram and blog here -

6 Inspiring Interiors.

Being a very visual and artistic person, I love looking at images of design interiors of homes.
I recently found a great site domainhome.com that provides 'shopping, style and inspiration for the home'. 
While my personal style is quite minimalistic, with a whole lot of white and subtle splashes of colour, I do 
appreciate and feel inspired by others homes and the way they incorporate their own style. 

I selected a few images of celebrities homes from Domaine to share with you...

1. Karlie Kloss's living room  2. Ivanka Trump's master bedroom  3. Giselle Bundchen and Tom 
Brady's lounge room  4. Gwyneth Paltrow's living room  5. Nina Garcia's powder area in her 
bedroom 6. Diane Von Furstenburg's bedroom

There are bits and pieces that I absolutely love with each of these rooms and a few of them would be -
The colour palette in Karlie Kloss's lounge, with the hint of gold. The overall feel of Ivanka Trump's bedroom, 
especially all of the white , it gives that crisp, clean feeling. Giselle Bundchen's booth seats in her lounge room 
and then the post bed, fresh blooms and for some reason, that leopard doona cover in DVF's bedroom.

Melbourne City Guide.

I recently wrote a post about my hometown of Melbourne and spoke about my admiration for the city. 
A few weeks ago I was approached by boohoo.com, who asked me to contribute to their Melbourne guide. 
The guide is made up of five Melbournians who are in 'in the know' of the best places to visit. I was asked 
to share my personal fashion hotspots with you, so take a look!

+ Bourke Street - it has big stores such as Zara, H&M and David Jones
+ Green With Envy on Flinders Lane - every girls favourite department store with international and local designers
+ Westfield Doncaster - who doesn't like hundreds of stores under the one roof!
+ Chapel Street, South Yarra - this has a mix of high-end and mainstream

Don't forget to check out the little laneways off the main streets as they are full of hidden gems!

Head over to boohoo.com blog to take an even better look.
(Sadly the infographic colours just aren't as pretty in blogger!)

*Since going to print, GPO has been transformed incredibly into a great space that is now home 
to H&M (Yay!). In addition, the Stokehouse re-opened it's doors on Alfred Place in the CBD. 

Lauren Conrad's Every Day Curls.

Pretty sure every breathing girl has died over Lauren Conrad's hair at some point or another, whether 
it's due to her perfectly coloured balayage, ballerina bun or her most lusted-after, her every day curl.
Well now thanks to a brand new step-by-step hair tutorial that she has shared on her blog, 
you, yourself can achieve the same effortless, bouncy, natural looking curl.

Just like LC, I tend to curl my locks quite often and having done so for many years now, it's almost 
second nature also. It's always great to get some extra handy tricks and tips though to see how others have 
perfected the technique, because sometimes perfecting something like this just takes some time and a little
bit of practice, especially coming from Lauren, whose hair I have been obsessing over since the Laguna Beach
days and even more so toward the end of The Hills.
She continues to be a huge inspiration in the hair and beauty department.

Lauren uses Everlasting Blonde shampoo and conditioner by John Freida and a Crystal Clear hairspray.

While the inspirations flowing, I might put together a post very soon of some of my forever-favourite Lauren Conrad looks.
So stay tuned!
