Wish you were here!

We wish we had Sephora in Australia, we fell in love with this store when we visited the States last year. It is pretty much the mecca for everything beauty! You can buy your favourite frangrance, skincare, cosmetic, haircare and bath/body product or sample something entirely new! The stores are styled beautifully and the selection is just phenomenal. This is of course what you would expect from a division of Mo√ęt Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

We also love the store events at Sephora where you can meet the brands and learn about upcoming trends and fresh looks, all from the experts themselves.

Sephora unfortunately doesn't ship directly to Australia and whilst you can purchase certain products that are stocked through other online shopping sites, you miss out then on the whole experience of being a Sephora customer! It is just heaven.... we spent hours, upon hours looking through the shop not wanting to leave!

Presents Anyone?

With Christmas just around the corner, we must admit that shopping online at Urban Outfitters has gone well a little crazy! Our intent was to buy things for friends/family ... however we've also found a number of presents for ourselves. They have so many cute things... we've also found a number of romantic items that you could incorporate into your special day. We thought that the LOVE Earrings were sweet, so too the Filagree Jewellery Hook, Strawberry Lip Balm, Canvas Print 'A little bird told me', Antique Door Knob & Philosophy Grace Fragrance.

Lets face it we could just go on and on!


Sorry, couldn't quite resist including this image, it is a Waterfall Ruffle Shower Curtain. How fun! We think however, that we would be sorely tempted to use it as a backdrop or a curtain in a bedroom, rather than in the bathroom! An item this pretty needs a larger stage.

We Love!!

The best thing about weddings are .......they're your chance to create a fabulous day that encompasses everything you love!! More and more we are seeing amazing weddings that are perfect combinations of vintage, modern, black tie, thrifty, glamour, circus and vibrant clashing colours..... just to name a few! Now we are seeing the finest crystal mixed with old jam jars and we love it! We thought this beautiful picture from Elizabeth Messina's gorgeous blog -Kiss the Groom was the perfect combination of wonder.

Peggy Sue + Friends

We're so excited about our exclusive new range of gift cards designed specifically for Bride + Groom. In the past we've struggled to find the perfect card for a wedding, engagement or birthday, however our search is now over! Printed on linen paper stock each card features a beautifully photographed image. The personality of the cards shine through with the quirky titles including 'Peggy Sue', 'Chloe Heart', 'Freesia, Freesia', 'Kiss the Groom' etc. We hope you like them as much as we do!

Cymbeline Paris

When looking through a copy of the recent Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine we came across an advertisement for Cymbeline Paris. Founded over 30 years ago by three sisters who wanted to revolutionise the bridal industry, Cymbeline Wedding Dresses epitomise french chic, which is not suprising when the brand was born in Nemours, France - 60km from Paris!

Here's a few chosen images from the 2010 Cymbeline Collection. We think the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Parisian streetscapes make for fabulous backdrops!!

Candy Bars

We love the concept of having a Candy Bar at a Wedding .... so we thought we'd set one up using products from our store. We had fun making the cupcakes and sourcing the yummy treats! mmm Fairy Floss!! Everything looked almost too good to eat ... but we managed! We were particulary taken with our Luxe Tassle Curtains that we used as the backdrop as well as the white letters spelling out L-O-V-E.

Tiffany Chairs

We've wanted to take some more photos of our Tiffany Chairs to showcase how beautiful they look for outdoor events, be it a wedding ceremony or a party! We held a photo shoot last Sunday using both the Black + White Tiffany Chairs as well as some of the gorgeous White Eyelet Lanterns that can be found in our store! It was such a beautiful, warm afternoon perfect for a wedding. We'll be sure to post some more pictures from this day soon.......
