Apartment Shopping

The Apartment by The Line showcases beautiful products to purchase as they may look curated in a home. A beautiful New York apartment home. Ummm Yes Please!

What a fabulous way to shop – just visiting The Apartment would be phenomenal; the fact that everything in it is for sale is just super cool.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone x



Day to Night

We are heading out to a few day events this summer that could continue on into the evening (depending on how much sleep this mummy has been blessed with recently!) so a look that could quickly be altered to allow for nighttime antics is a necessity.

A black dress is always a fantastic staple to start with and I love this one available at Daily Look. You can use Daily Look’s style sets to pull together an outfit on a board and play around with accessories, shoes, bags etc. It’s easy to use and I love that you can import items from other websites. I spent a loooooong time mixing and matching different possibilities – such fun!!!

Here is my idea for how I would take a little (well, long actually) black dress from day to night; adding fresh pops of colour, heels, a luxe clutch and something a little unexpected in the form of a tiger bomber jacket, to take the look from festival chic to fashion savvy – easy to store these items in the car with no need to go home! Throw your hair up in a slick bun or ponytail, apply some fresh lippy and you’re off!

Check out all of Daily Look’s LBD options here and have fun with their style sets here.

Bargain Buy

The latest summer catalogue from Freedom Furniture was stuffed into our mailbox on the weekend and I have to say I was pretty impressed with a number of bargain buys on offer; in particular this wee gem of an outdoor (or indoor I reckon) stool for only $29.95. Also available in a grey or red finish.

Missoni for Target

I have always loved the vibrancy that Italian fashion house Missoni brings to it’s textiles and clothing designs. The way the bright colours are woven together is fun and fashionable, and definitely makes an outfit or room pop.

You can imagine my delight when Missoni and Target combined forces to create a much more affordable range and that we happened to be in Australia during the launch. For over 14 months, Target and Missoni worked together on a collection that reflects their shared values of style and quality. It’s a limited edition, which means once stock is sold out, there will be no more to come so get in quick!

There is something for everyone with clothing, shoes, home decor and lifestyle products for men, women and children, all sporting the traditional Missoni style of mixed colours and patterns. I brought home a hooded towel for Axel that I am pretty impressed with quality wise (it’s super soft and the colours are gorgeous) as well as some tea towels and a 2015 diary. Follow this link to check out the range.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and enjoy the public holiday on Monday if you are a kiwi! X

1. The Trucker Jacket – Glassons (perfect for that extra layer needed at this time of the year)

2. Hudson Mirar Ankle Boot – Workshop (sale alert!! Would look amazing with a summery, boho dress)

3. Ka Fines Ring – Superette (cute for wearing multiple, dainty rings)

4. Wildfox Couture Chloe Overall – Revolve (hark back to your younger days in a pair of overalls this spring)

5. Sia V-Neck Playsuit – Cotton On (an easy beach outfit)

6. Lacey Espadrille – Witchery (I’m loving the edition of the ankle strap)

I wonder if there is a group for online shopping addicts? If so I’m not quite at the point of needing to attend meetings, but I must admit I have the bug pretty bad!!!

As I am currently not working, (ha! not working!!! I am up earlier than ever before and I totally consider the role of being a mum a serious full time job – it is hard work!) I have the internet at my fingertips all day and when Axel is napping I search the web far and wide looking for things that are at single salary worthy prices.

I am a big believer in mixing and matching different price points – shoes and handbags last a life time if you buy quality pieces and look after them, anything that is a little ‘trendy’ and won’t need to go the distance (i.e. past the current season) then go for a more budget friendly option.

So Jemma, I can definitely help you by listing a few of my favourite online shopping destinations that offer funky threads at a reasonable price. The following retailers are saved in my bookmarks and get plenty of hits!

Revolve Clothing – I always shop their sale section as being a Northern Hemisphere retailer their end of season sales are perfect for our up and coming season. Plus they do free shipping over $100 (USD).

Asos – You would just about have to have been living under a rock to not know about mega online retailer Asos. Free shipping no matter how little your purchase – Ah-MAzing!!!

Seed Heritage – Always on trend, LOVE their shoes, and they also have fab kids wear.

Urban Outfitters – The perfect place for finding what is ‘trendy’ at a reasonable price.

Onceit – Sign up to get on trend pieces at insider prices.

Cotton On / Glassons / Dotti – The places to go to get basic staples.

SurfStitch – I’ve only recently re-discovered how good shopping at a ‘surf’ store can be! Their sale section is definitely worth checking out, they regularly have online discount codes to give you further reductions, and they ship super fast; my purchases normally arrive from Australia within two working days.

Witchery – Anyone who has followed my blog for a while now will know that I am a fan of Witchery – especially their shoes. Sign up for their customer loyalty programme to receive fantastic rewards (it helps if your lovely mum buys there too and puts her purchases on your customer loyalty card! Thanks mum! x)

Tomorrow I’ll bring you a new monthly feature with my top ten picks for your wardrobe from around the web. These are the pieces that I would be getting (if I could!) to add to my wardrobe that would not only look great for that month, but would be on-going for the season (and seasons) ahead. I’ll be making sure I include options that reiterate price point mixing, definitely the way forward people!
