Joveeba: Autumn / Winter 2011 Collection "I Need You"

The Autumn / Winter 2011 collection "I Need You" from Aussie label Joveeba, is oh so luxurious with a sophisticated edge, yet still exudes ultimate cosy comfort.

I'm in love with their maxi dresses

Warm cable knits are a must-have for winter

I'm a huge fan of the relaxed tailored pant....
... and these easy walker pants
I need to get me one of these grey leather jackets!
I don't know about you but leggings are my staples in Autumn / Winter...
 ... and vests too
Joveeba's Autumn / Winter 2011 collection "I Need You" is available in February 2011 from a selection of leading boutiques within Australia & online at

I know where I'll be shopping this coming season!

Chuck: Apartment Obsession

Anyone else watch Chuck?
Well, since I've had a week off work after having some minor surgery, I've been watching a fair bit of this tv show. I am now in love with Sarah's apartment, which is actually the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica.

I can't get enough of the white & silver tones offset by the hints of emerald green here & there.

Makes me want to redecorate my whole apartment!

Must get an emerald upholstered bed head like this...

Thanks for all your lovely comments about my Birthday Party. I had such a wonderful weekend & was really happy with how all the little details came together.

My Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea Birthday Party

 A few photos from my 30th birthday party on the weekend...
Isn't the cake phenomenal???

The Mad Hatter's Mimosa Stand looked much prettier before this shot was taken, but by this stage we had to grab out extra random champagne glasses & juices. It was quite a popular stand!!
The teapots were all marked with "drink me" & in tiny font underneath... the cocktail they were hiding! (yes, no tea)

My hubby & I...

"We're all mad here"
I made fresh "Summer Ice Tea" in the glass dispenser

All photography (except those marked Looking Glass) by Reef Gaha
All decorating by me
Birthday Cake by Johanna Folkard at Sweet Bite
Cupcakes by Lauren Barrett
Macarons by Baroque
Props & decorations: mine & also costume/set designer Leone Sharpe's

Be mine...

Happy Valentine's to all Curious readers & a very happy Birthday to my hubby!

Needless to say there's no real Valentine's celebrations in my household as it's my husband's birthday & mine was yesterday. We like it that way. There's no going overboard with silly gifts, just birthday gifts.

 We can surprise each other with little love tokens any other day of the year.

Today I'd like to thank all the people I love & who love me for being in my life :-)

...but especially my husband on his special day!

(Not that he reads this blog haha! Now I'll have to make him read it)

I will be back very soon with photos from my birthday over the weekend! I'm having some minor surgery tomorrow so it may take me a couple of days to get back into the swing of things and to gather all my photos.

A Very Merry Unbirthday To Me

I just wanted to wish you all a delightful weekend. My birthday party is this weekend, so next week I will be back with plenty of photos I'm sure.

My actual birthday is Sunday, but my party is tomorrow (Saturday).

All images by The Sweetest Occasion, but I came across them at Tren di Nozze

To all a fun, frivolous & frolicsome weekend!
