Style Melbourne


Sugar high

Sometimes I win at life. I wandered into the cosy Provenance Food & Wine – definitely want to re-visit for something more savoury – Monday night to “help” Jess choose from eight new flavours for her Sugadeaux range of cupcakes. A range of friends, food lovers, bloggers, journalists and restaurateurs gathered to

Beauty Trends for Right Now by MAC

It’s not often a girl has the unexpected pleasure of having her face done for a night out by one of Australia’s best make-up artists. M.A.C’s Senior Artist Nicole Thompson breezed into Melbourne to introduce us to what beauty trends they are loving this instant…and I ended up in the

Viva la (Mimco) Revolución

A gold box arrived on my doorstep recently heralding the launch of “An Unpredictable Revolution” by Mimco. Their latest dark campaign (as per the Helen Clemens film below) was shot by Australian photographer Christian Blanchard and stars model Emma Balfour who is experiencing a comeback since the 90’s heyday of

Friday Night Lights

An intimate rooftop party, a secret location, energising music; not a bad way to kick off my weekend. On Friday evening I was led by Whereis to take in the views from the penthouse at The Cullen boutique art hotel. The rain was wise to keep to itself for the night

As I continue to malign fashion boutiques who insist on not even installing mirrors in their change rooms (instead forcing you out into an embarrassing public display of your bodily foibles), it has been refreshing to find a new place that is bounding into the future while paying attention to

It’s SPA-rty time!

Cleanse, tone, exfoliate, moisturise, nails, hair (both ‘do and removal), treatments, makeup, perfume etc…where’s my (oh-so-politically-incorrect) billionaire husband hiding? Seriously it

We meet again Mr. Bond…

The first and last time I visited Bond seems like aeons ago for a fashion show. In Melbourne there are more bars per capita then anywhere else in the world so there is always a new haunt to visit. Thus I never got around to a double take. But Bond is one

Duck Duck Goose…

Duck Duck Goose…a charming name for a restaurant that has been in the works for longer than it takes to play 100 rounds of its namesake childhood game. The space is ambitious with a multiple personality. Designed in two halves; the luxurious higher-end dining room and a budget-friendly modern Asian

A Beauty Spot

Last night a bunch of beauty bloggers and I visited the International Dermal Institute (who make Dermalogica) in South Melbourne to discover how we should care for our faces. My skin still feels soft this morning – though I am slack and won’t have time to do everything, every day I


Managed an abbreviated visit to the BAM Brands pop-up showcase last night (before toddling on down to Cookie to meet the Broadsheet Melbourne team who I have been working with in person for the first time). Thanks for your hospitality Bec and Justin! Fell in love with Mecuralist‘s supple leather
