It's hot here in Adelaide - really hot - 46 degrees celsius (115F that is for our overseas readers) with an estimated overnight low of 32 degrees (90F). Thoughts wander to the beach and that cool, cool water. SugarLove Weddings are known for their lovely beach wedding shoots. Their website has many samples of their beautiful work, be sure to stop by if needing some refreshment where you are.

Goodnight Lovely
There's no denying that I'm, unfortunatley, the kind of girl who needs her 8 hours sleep. With daylight savings unkindly pushing the boundaries I've discovered that my old, ratty eyemask has had to sufice. Not any more! A couple of days ago I came accross Zinke Designs Goodnight Lovely eyemasks. How glam! Made from buttery-soft silk in colours merlot, peacock, orchid, French blue and lavender they would make the most divine pressies for your bridesmaids. I've got mine in the post as we speak! Visit to have a peek at the eyemasks and the other lovely pieces that are available. They ship to Australia too. Beauty sleep has never been so beautiful!

Menswear - Milan A/W 09/10
The star or the menswear parades would have to be, without a doubt, Dolce & Gabbana. Their suits were beyond beautiful. Quirky colours may not be your thing but the fabrics, cut and styles of the suits are to be truly admired. Dsquared2 was another show I really enjoyed. Classic but hip... just the way it should be. Moschino brought the bowler back. Very sophisticated when worn correctly. Versace and Gianfranco Ferre adorned their men in everything sparkly and shiny... hot, hot, hot. It was hard to pick a small amount of pics to show you but I figured you'd enjoy admiring them as much as I did! Note: the bow tie's making a massive return!

Be My Valentine
With Valentine's Day just around the corner (Feb 14th for those who aren't good at remembering dates!) it's important to make sure you have some great ideas up your sleeve to spoil your special someone. Being the fragrance fiend I am I was thrilled to hear Nina Ricci is releasing a new fragrance just in time for Valentine's Day. Nina Ricci Jewel Temptation Gold Edition Limited Edition has top notes of Calabrese Lemon and Caipirinha together with peony petals and moonflowers, which combine to make the most desirable scent. Nina Ricci Jewel Temptation Gold Edition Limited Edition will be on counters in Myer and David Jones stores nationally from 2 Feb 09 and is priced at $69 for 50ml.

Bon Voyage
That's it, I think I'm going to have to move to France. How can I not when they produce such beautiful products like these from Cote Bastide? These exquisite embroidered organza hearts would make such lovely decorations for a ceremony or reception.

They have an online shop but I have seen many of their products in shops around the place so ask at your local homeware store for any products you are coveting - most likely they can order them in for you.

Bride Wars
Out today, this fun-looking movie follows the story of childhood friends, Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anna Hathaway) who, through a mix up, vie for their dream wedding location on the same day. Bride Wars erupts with each woman doing her best to outdo the other.

We've been told photographs from the renowned Christian Oth Studio feature prominently in the movie so we're keen to see if we'll be able to spot them. Let us know if you do!
