Fun in the Sun!

Getting away from Melbourne for a few days last week to the beautiful Sunshine Coast was a much needed break and I'm already missing the lazy days by the pool. I have had a lot of changes to my life recently, namely Henry and I have mutually decided to end our relationship, or as Gwyneth would say we have decided to consciously uncouple. We are both happy and at peace with our decision and looking forward to what the future brings. He will always have a special place in my heart and I am hopeful that we will continue as friends. The Sunshine Coast was the perfect place to regroup and focus on myself in the wake of this situation and I'm really glad I got to enjoy some much needed fun in the sun with friends. Of course I went all out with the #pinkcore poolside pieces as my love of pink just never ends!

I just love this pink floral bikini by independent Australian swimwear label Azalea Swim. I'm all about the #fatkini this year and this one is just so cute. I love love love the cute little frills. Azalea Swim cater up to a size 18 which is perfect for inbetweenies like me.

Not having Henry as my usual outfit photographer is going to take some getting used to. I really wanted to showcase just how bloody awesome these Doodad and Fandango ice cream earrings really are, hopefully you can tell. I've been wearing them everywhere since I got then. I want so many things from their collection, would make the best Christmas pressies!

Ok I'm kinda against shopping at H&M but I do pop in to have a look from time to time, usually on my way to the Strand Arcade's boutiques such as Gorman's Weekend store, Fat or Funkis. Anyway I was doing just that when I chanced upon this cute pink basket bag and I just had to have it even if H&M are highly questionable ethically and I prefer to shop local whenever possible. I can't be perfect all the time guys! This was only $10 which is both good and bad, good for my pocket but bad knowing just how little the people making it would receive. I feel so much guilt but I figure I do more than my bit and one bad thing is allowed. Don't hate me.

Oh look here! This is me doing my bit, haha. These awesome cute thongs/sandals are by Honeybees Australia and $2 per every pair sold goes directly to bee research. Bees are currently endangered and with them they will take our flora, fauna and a third of our diet if they do die out. So saving the bees is a really important cause, why not get some cute poolside shoes at the same time?

Shop the look!!!


  1. Really sorry to hear about your divorce but all the best for whatever the future brings <3

  2. hope you and Henry are both feeling at peace with the decision, as always you look totally comfortable and confident in your own skin. love the embroidery detail on that kaftan too


  3. I'm really sorry to hear about your break up but it sounds like you are both in such a positive headspace, I wish you both the best!
    In the mean time, make the most of your crazy Australian sunshine!! :D


  4. Hello ma Chère ! Wonderful pictures, blue pink yellow, sunshine, donut and, Ô so pinky nails ! Excellent to fight back the bloody belgian winter. Keep going, tiens bon !

  5. OMG, I had one of those bags when I was young, way back in the 80s! My sister and I tie-dyed fabric and wove it in torn strips through the bag and we were cooler than anyone -- until Mum realised we'd used the sheets and nearly killed us. LOL.

    Ethically speaking, how does H&M stack up against City Chic?

  6. I used to have one of those bags as a child! Hugs to you, relationships are hard x

  7. I need one of those inflatable donuts in my life!!!!

  8. I love those pink sandals and your pink nails. The bag is cute too.



Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
