I ask myself this every year. 
It gets to December and I haven't even thought about Christmas gifts yet.
Why oh why do I leave the pressie shopping so late?
Some of you super organised types probably already have your gifts on layby and are relaxing
at the beach with a smile on your face in your spare time. It's right about now 
that I start to panic and wonder, when will I ever have time to get to the shops?
The shopping, parking, crowds and the rush all send a shiver down my spine. Thanks Santa!
This year however I am on a mission to avoid that last minute rush and 
have found something that not only saves time, but heaps of cash as well.

The click and collect feature of Harbour Town's website 
is a local secret that I am about to let you in on.
 It's as easy as 123

1. FIND: Search through gift ideas online
2. BUY: Purchase & pay online from your couch anytime
3. COLLECT: Pick up your item in-store 
at Harbour Town at your leisure and 
avoid the crowds

No rush. You can collect your order anytime in the next 3 weeks and while you're there get a few sneaky bargains for yourself. :)

Sweet! Get shopping girls

 Over the next few months I will be searching Harbour Town to find some of my favourite things and to check out the click and collect items in the flesh!
Here are a few things that I have my eye on...
Perfect for my newly engaged girlfriend! A great range of Vera Wang in store at ROYAL DOULTON

Found these on-trend high waisted bikinis at BIKINI ISLAND. Great range lots of sizes and brands. Stocking sizes in store from  6 - 24.

This cooler bag is super cute and a total bargain at GENERAL TRADER WAS $24.99 NOW $9.99


A quick refuel. BOOST JUICE is now at Harbour Town for those - on the run -  "I can't stop because I'm shopping!" moments.
Ohh Cute! The BONDS OUTLET STORE  is totally addictive. Stuff for him, her and the kids. Giving undies for Christmas couldn't be cooler. A great pressie for a teenie weenie person you love. WAS $21.95 NOW $19.95 *Available in store  

These are great little stocking fillers! What girl doesn't love body butter? MOR Feojoa Lime Body Butter @ COSMETIC FRAGRANCE DIRECT  WAS $29.95 NOW $12.00

Shopping for men is hard! You're spoilt for choice in the fitness department at Harbour Town. BROOKS  Men's Training Singlet WAS $44.95 NOW $29.95


I am coveting the bamboo serving ware at BED BATH AND TABLE. Great pops of colour and perfect for a hostess gift on Christmas day. If Santa is listening...
There's a new store in Harbour Town! EMPTY HANGER  is locally owned, run by women, for women with some gorgeous items at great prices. It's 15-70% off store wide for the next few weeks. Ok.. so...I bought something :)

GUEST BLOGGER - Makeup Secret Weapons - Ant Adams

Anthony's makeup secret weapons! Products you NEED to know about!

I have been working as a Makeup Artist for brands like Chanel and for Celebrities for over 15 years now. So daily, I become aware of products by the hundreds, which to a novice could be very confusing.

A lot of people I meet are already baffled with makeup and how to use it. Thankfully I have brands, who often send me products to trial and review, and with some of these products I instantly fall in love.

With new technologies within the last few years, makeup has had a huge push forward, where we can now get foundations that illuminate, reduce lines and wrinkles, and even alter in any light that you may walk into, to give you a stunning result.

So here are just a few of my new finds, which you should check out and hopefully love as much as I do.

Benefit 'Fake Up' crease control hydrating Concealer.

Concealer is a girls, (and some boys) best friend. And over the years I have searched high and low for one that is not dry, too visible and that hydrates rather than creases. Benefit's new 'Fake Up' is a diamond amongst the rough. With Vitamin E and Apple seed extract, this handy purse sized concealer, will not only hide a multitude of sins, but will leave a silky smooth finish to any makeup.

Benefit "Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow' Foundation.

There are a million foundations out there, and why be confused when it comes to something that is not only a staple in our makeup kits, but also offers us the best result from all of our products. I have discovered a foundation that not only offers a stunning coverage, but is oil free and has a SPF 25 PA+++. This fabulous little product aids to boost cellular respiration, which gives a plumping up effect. You will not only be thrilled with the finish but also how it wears through-out the day.

 Kiehl's Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate.
I am a skincare addict! I got into looking after my skin in my thirties and I am glad I did, as I think now I am in my forties, I am still holding up pretty well. This is thanks to being able to use some great products, such as Kiehls 'Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate'. This fantastic cream (which I can vouch for myself) has been clinically demonstrated to improve the visible signs of ageing such as dark circles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It also gives a lush brightening effect to your eye area. With Bitter orange extract and a patented ingredient Haloxyl (TM), along with the Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), this product will take years off your eyes, in a small amount of time.


Kiehls 'Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler'.

Need a product that can wipe years of your face instantly? Then try this fabulous cream from Kiehls, it works instantly, and continues to work over time without having any silicones With two types of Hyaluronic Acids, it offers double the wrinkle filling power. So wrinkles will be filled and your skin will appear plumped and smooth. Who doesn't want to look a few years younger?

These are just a few suggestions of my favourite products. Thankfully due to the technology advances as mentioned, you can now find products for any concern you may have, and it offers you an alternative to the more painful things such as botox.

So there is a world of great new items out there, when you get a chance, delve deeper and go try some for yourself, I think you will pleasantly surprised. And who needs an excuse to go shopping right?

If there are any beauty or skincare questions you would like answered, don't forget you can pop an email over to me at and I will make an effort to answer them for you.

Till next time! x

Rundle Place & Ted Baker

 Today I have a fresh-faced fashion afterglow.
After the much anticipated opening of
the new Rundle Place in Rundle Mall yesterday, I must say I was thoroughly impressed.
Add to the mix the most impressive VIP experience 
at the brand new Ted Baker store, all I can say 
is Adelaide, it's about time.
Editors and fashion experts were invited to an exclusive look 
at the new Ted Baker store and treated to a VIP wine tour at Penfold's Estate.
Chauffeured in vintage cars and sipping on Grange, epitomised the Ted Baker experience.
Their brand and offer in store is all about the details.
Hailing from London, Ted Baker offers a wide range of collections including; menswear, 
womenswear, accessories, fragrance, footwear, eyewear and watches. 
The style is classic, elegant, timeless and tailored, 
plus there is something for all price points and budgets.
The size range is from a 0 - 4. 
4 being an Aus size 14.

The new Rundle Place precinct is a great addition to the Rundle Mall landscape.
It looks and feels a bit like Chadstone in Melbourne.
It has a fresh white clean feel. Modern shop fronts let the products speak
for themselves.
Our favourite offers? Seduce (yay!), Vince Camuto, Ted Baker,
David Lawrence and Jigsaw.

All Ted Baker stores work to the theme of the city. Our Adelaide store has a wine theme...of course!
