Launch of The Lip Lab in Ballarat

@findingfemme checks out The Lip Lab in Ballarat to get a custom made lipstick

Earlier this evening my sister Goldfields Girl and I dropped into the opening night of The Lip Lab in Ballarat. The Lip Lab is a magical place where you can custom build your own lipstick. I'm not someone who's very into lipstick, but if there's one thing I've learned from this evening, my interest is clearly based on how much control I have over the creation process. You want nude? Bam! A warmed tone of nude? Bam! Matte or gloss? BAM! Cinnamon flavour? BOOM. That is literally the process for how my own personalised lipstick came together.

Pleated Skirt and Overcoming Procrastination

So after my blog post in which I talked about 'living for the weekend', a few people talked to me about finding the motivation to do so much (if you're thinking about how doing so much doesn't burn me out, I've written about that here). Being able to pack so much into one day can sure sound nauseating to some people, especially when you’re not used to that much activity. Motivation isn’t the biggest killer for me getting stuff done, it’s usually procrastination. 

Red, Black and White and How I Avoid Burnout

As I super-busy high-achiever, one of the most important things I’ve had to learn in life is how to avoid burnout. If you read my blog often you probably remember this post in which I talked about how important it is to spread out breaks and doing the things I love so that I don’t see-saw between two extremes and end up living for the weekend. I’ve found the same principle can be applied when avoiding burnout. Smaller regular breaks are important to me when making sure I’m getting all the rest that I need and I’m not building up to a major crash. Here’s how I do it.

Biking Pretty in Lazybones

Hello Spring! Bike season is finally back for me and I’m so excited for it. Not much makes me as happy as I feel when I’m riding a bicycle. In fact, I used to have this beautiful little cottage where space was at a premium. I ended up having my bike in my kitchen. I’m that kind of girl. Goldfields Girl and I took a moment during the busy MSFW weekend in Ballarat to stylet his bike outfit.

MSFW Blogger Lunch


One of the greatest parts of the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week regional series in Ballarat was meeting so many people that I otherwise wouldn't have. On the Saturday of the weekend, I had lunch with the above group of incredible women, from left to right by their better known identities: The Girl Who Lived for Clothes, Lawstore, Jules Zass, Janelle Ryan (Little PR Co.), House of White, Cherrie Bobbins and myself. So what do a bunch of 'influencers' talk about when they get together?
