GIVEAWAY: WIN A CASE OF C COCONUT WATER!

I’m actually not kidding when I say this is my favourite blog giveaway to date. With this incredibly long endless summer we seem to be having this year, C Coconut Water has been my go-to drink pretty much daily. (In fact, as I sit here typing, I am sipping away merrily). There are a lot of coconut waters on the market, but this one is easily my fave – it’s not artificially sweetened, it has no added sugar and it’s carbon neutral certified. It also just tastes healthy, which I love.

So imagine how exciting it would be to have a case sitting in your fridge right now that you can just access whenever you feel like it? I know.

Thanks to the lovely team at C Coconut Water, this dream is about to come true for one of you who will receive a case of C Coconut Water delivered straight to your doorstep (maybe even your fridge, if you ask the delivery guy nicely).

To enter, just leave a comment below answering the age old question:

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?

Be sure to leave a contact e-mail address. Giveaway closes at 5pm on the 5th April and is open to Australian residents only. Good luck! x

5 THINGS I LEARNT AT LMFF.

My (fairly playful and not-at-all-to-be-taken-seriously) wrap up of this year’s L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is now up on Pedestrian. Click here to check it out!

SPARKLE PANTS.

{Pants – sass & bide; Shirt – Cotton On; Hat – vintage; Necklace – Sportsgirl; Watch – Michael Kors; Clutch – no name}

What I wore on my third day of LMFF (I think? I am losing track). A pretty slapdash outfit but it had sparkles and a hat, two of my favourite things. I was also very comfortable and had minimal shoe pain, which is a win/win in my books. These are the second pair of pants I have added to my wardrobe recently that are an upstyled version of something that usually never leaves the house – in this case, pyjama pants.

JOG ON.

I think I have mentioned this before but I am a bit of a style chameleon. It sounds really cliched, but I love so many different styles and trends that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, and I suppose this look was a bit inspired by the sport-luxe trend that just won’t go away. If it didn’t make me resemble an asian tourist, I would have also worn a leather cap with this, but unfortunately teamed with a Digital SLR camera slung over my shoulder, I definitely would have looked like I had stepped off a tour bus.

Anyway, this is what I wore yesterday to L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, but with more bags under my eyes. I’ll do a general wrap-up post at the end of the festival (personal highlight – meeting the Dulux Dog) and won’t fill your feeds with runway photos for now. I’m a bit obsessed with these leather-look jogger style pants that I nabbed from Sportsgirl, they are the most comfortable pants ever and very easy to style. They are like tracksuit pants that are socially acceptable to wear out of the house. Amazing.

Spotted this wall of posters on our way back from the National Designer Award presentation at Tiffany and Co this morning (you can read my story on that here). Would love you guys to check out my crazy talented boyfriend’s new album, which is hitting stores (and iTunes) this Friday. I have been listening to it non-stop for the past couple of months and it is actually amazing. Now back to the chaos of fashion week!
