The giveaway:
Fashion Weekend Sydney

Woo-hoo! I have 3 double passes to Fashion Weekend Sydney (May 12-15) to give away, thanks to the lovely girls at Sweaty Betty. Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win! Winners will be drawn (and announced) on Monday 18th April.


  1. Your little tableax with the candles is gorgeous. What on earth are those plants in the vases? They look like some sort of sea grapes, or sea weed? Quite stunning!

  2. I'm in love with that knit jumper and with those tickets!! PICK ME :) Hope you're having a great day xoxo

  3. Want/need/gotta have the Mink Pink knit! Like really. Is it old or new Louise? And more importantly, and keeping with the SHOP theme, is it available online?!

    Big fan of Palm Beach Collection. Love the 'Blue Collection' in particular. So yummy and Sydney-in-summer-ish!

    Ps. Am loving the 'Day in the Life' series! So nice to see that you put in effort to get all jazzed up to work at home unlike some blogger that go on and on and on about how they live in their trackies (which have a time and place of course)!

  4. those candles look lovely - im addicted to frangranced home candles....
    hey id love a chance to win some tix to the fashion weekend!!

  5. Blue Fruit:
    They are "faux"! Plastic! From Spotlight!

    You can buy Mink Pink online, but it's from 2 winters ago... But always worth contacting them, I say - you never know what they have lying around!


  6. I adore your ' A day in the life' posts. And I think I totes need to go to Fashion Week to increase my coolness in dressing! xx

  7. I'd love to go to fashion week - might need to get out of my daggy mum gear for that though (can I go shopping first???)

  8. Where do you buy the palm beach candles from? They dont seem to sell them on their website. Thanks!

  14. Hi Louise, random question but I was wondering what size you are in Bassike as I look to be the same size as you and wanted to purchase online?? Thanks S x

  15. Toni: I'll find out for you!
    Anon: I only ever get an L or (preferably) XL in Bassike. I like things loose and drapey though...

  16. Thanks Louise much appreciated!

  17. Louise, you are in inspiration and a daily read.
    I'm an accessories designer and would love to attend fashion weekend in sydney for some more inspiration.
    Keep on bloggin'

  18. I LOVE all your stripey things.

  19. Hi Louise, I wanted to tell you the "Green" soup was amazing, thanks!! Kiddo's LOVED it!! I could not believe they even tried it SOOO green!!
    I would love the fashion tickets too!! Keep up you fantastic Blog!!Love it!!

  20. I bought that Bassike dress on the weekend too! Glad to see someone else "upsizes" in Bassike. Loving the 'day in the life' posts- keep them up.

  21. So many great things here! I'm always looking for great candles, I will have to check out the Palm Beach Collection! Wish I lived close to Sydney to have a chance at winning fashion week tickets ;)

  22. Louise, you are gorgeous, love your hair, and your larger and looser is best drapier style. I saw the dress you bought was XL and I thought someone as thin as you should not be XL!
    Anyway love your series A day in the life, inspiration city for a fellow mother of two wee ones! xx
