The perfect travel bag?! 27.06.12

As you know we are just about to head off to Queenstown. My husband and I have this trip pretty much down pat, as we do this trip once a year. It's by no means a long flight, so not much hand luggage is required. BUT, this year we have our new little addition to the fam. Oscar. Who as many of you mummy's know babies tend to have more baggage than the adults. So I am downing my Louis Vuitton speedy (the perfect travel bag) for a more "sensible" style. As we are still carrying a baby bag around i am thinking a cross body bag is the way to go?? Here are a few styles that I have my eye on....Which one do like? I would love to know your thoughts.

marc by marc jacobs classic q natasha - purchase here

 marc by marc jacobs classic q percy - purchase here

3.1 phillip lim ponyskin cross body - purchase here

alexander wang brenda chain in aqua - purchase here

Love to here what you think of my selection or if you have any other suggestions I am all ears.

Stylish homes - Heidi Middleton Palm Beach Home: 13.06.12

My first full time job was working for the amazing girls at sass & bide, Sarah Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, two woman of whom I have the utmost respect for. So gorgeous, so creative and just all round beautiful people. While I was working for SJ & Heidi, Heidi was in the process of moving from her Potts Point apartment to her glamourous Palm Beach abode and WOW is all I can say! Heidi has really given this home the "bide" touch and it looks so magical. Check out some of the pics below.

Check out the full story and some more images of Heidi's home here.

June Long Weekend: Avalon Beach

This long weekend we took a trip down the coast to Avalon on the Northern Beaches. What a beautiful, relaxing and chic coastal town....highly recommend either a visit or stay! I found a gorgeous little unit on stayz.com.au a block from town and the beach. We had plenty of early morning beach walks and surf checks, lots of cafe hopping, reading, relaxing and a little shopping, the perfect way to spend a long weekend.I briefly had a peep in Louise from Table Tonic's new store (ummm amazballs - Louise I will get back to purchase some things many things)and also Mark Tuckey home, where I purchased a hot pink original bakers tray for my coffee table.
