Tony Bianco Callis & New Years Eve!

These are the most comfiest heels ever. Wore them out tonight and they were fantastic to walk in the whole night, even after a few too many drinks.

Tony Bianco Calli heels


What I wore - Forever floral silk playsuit that I bought from Melbourne, terrible picture but it's so pretty IRL with a bow waist band

Face for the night - I went for a little bit of fun with Stila Kitten in the corners and MAC My Dark Magic as an eyeshadow

Hope you all had a lovely New Years Eve! Bring on 2011!

Miu Miu bow bag - In love!!!

Couldn't to wait to share my best purchase from Melbourne - an unexpected purchase from the Miu Miu store in David Jones.  I've been drooling over the pretty bow bags that I've seen in the magazines for ages, but didn't even up finding any that I liked in the Miu Miu stores overseas.

I was only browsing in DJs when I came across this baby:

Couldn't resist! Even the signature dusty pink packaging with the ribbon bow

Miu Miu bag in the pretty Mughetto colourway - love the bows!!


Gold hardware

Both sides have a different look - one with the Miu Miu logo, and the otherside with the gold clasp/hardware

It also comes with a longer strap too, which will come in handy

Squeee *love* my new purchase!

OPI Swatch - Japanese Rose Garden

I've finally gotten around to testing some of my newly purchased OPIs and so far so good - this first swatch is OPI's Japanese Rose Garden

A very lovely pink

Not sure if it's the brush or polish for this but it goes on a bit thicker than other OPIs - the first coat looked quite streaky, and the second coat I needed a lot of polish on the brush for it to go on nicely

Nevertheless, it's a really pretty colour!

China Red - Bourke Street, Melbourne

After a long day of Melbourne shopping, something fast and simple for dinner is definitely on the cards.  Heading into Chinatown, China Red, a Shanghainese/dumpling place, catches my eye, and we decide to try it out - it looks tiny from the outside, but there's also a downstairs section which means the restaurant is actually quite big.

They have touch screens too - which I much prefer as you can decide on what to order at your own leisurely pace

Fried radish pastries - these were nice inside, but way too oily on the outside, even for me! It was to the point where oil was oozing out and it was almost soggy from it

The restaurant was busy even on a Tuesday night (it was a public holiday though!)

My coconut and mango drink - very nice, packed with lots of mango

Xiao long bao

And they had a whole range of tasty asian desserts too - this is the mango sago, packed full of mango pieces. Yum!

Purple Power - Alannah Hill cuff & Ferragamo Heels

There's been so many lovely purple things in the shops lately that it's hard for me not to purchase it all!

Spotted this in Alannah Hill the other day. It's called 'The Squeaky Little Voice' cuff and it came in a lovely cream colour too, but I couldn't go past the purple version.  It ended up being on sale too, even though it wasn't marked down. Score!

And my exciting new purchase from Salvatore Ferragamo - an impulse purchase whilst I was browsing the store in the new(ish) Westfield

Love the pretty lilac colour

Merry Christmas!

Wow, can't believe how fast this year has flown past! Hope everyone is having a lovely, wonderful Christmas day!

Had a massive Christmas Eve dinner, slept in today and watched a couple of movies, will check out the xmas lights later tonight! 

My Vogue KK gift was sent just in time for the deadline - my wrapping is atrocious, sorry KK! She was really good to buy for as her wish list was quite detailed, so I chose a couple of things from that - too easy! 

Saw this in the Ted Baker window at Westfield the other day - Sexy Santa.... so many levels of wrong!

And *gasp* the new CL store!!! 

My little gifts for my co-wokers - cute snowman choc from Haighs and handmade cards - Haigh's was insane and I had to line up! Crazy Christmas crowds.

Another handmade card

Christmas joy in the office - I also attacked the whole office with tinsel and other dodgy decorations haha

There was so much food in the office during the lead up to Christmas - I think I had morning tea just about every day this week, then we had a Christmas Eve BBQ breakfast with Moet champagne, homemade birthday cake and other snacks *faint*

I also got eyelash extensions done on Thursday and I love them so far! 

Christmas Eve outfit

I went to the airport super early because we finished work at 12 - I love my sparkly flats from Sportsgirl - super cute! I also spotted Kevin Rudd at the airport and that was my exciting news for the day haha

And I came home very excited to find my KK package:

Thanks KK!

I got this makeup bag set an a singlet from Metallicus

Excitement is an understatement when it comes to these Lush goodies I bought as a self Christmas present. 

Sakura bath ballistic - smells so divine

The Christmas Allsorts box - cutest Christmas gift box ever! 

The SA at the QVB store was so cute too, she was so enthusiastic in showing me that the lid spins and you can swap the heads on the characters - too funny! (I'm easily amused)

The Boogg Bath Ballistic - cute snowman head!

So White Bath Ballistic

Satsumo Santa Bath Ballistic

I cannot wait to have a lovely bath and try these out! Christmas holidays relaxation in the tub with a book - here I come!!!
