Run faster. MUCH faster.

Run faster. MUCH faster.

I haven’t owned running sneakers in a while. I don’t like running. I walk places. And then I got my legs into a pair of runfaster capris (go bookmark www.runfastergear.com.au NOW) and holy moly, I needed shoes that could keep up. These leggings are like rainbow 4-way-stretch magic. You pull them on and THEY STAY PULLED UP.   The double waistband does this lovely supportive thing that makes me look like the babysitter...

BRING ME THE WEEKEND!!

The weekend dress, I mean.  But 24 hours from now I will have both the dress AND some glorious down time and that can’t be a bad thing. SO here’s my shameful little secret:  I’ve lost my style mojo.  I don’t know where it is.  My body has changed again and all my old trusty pieces are no longer trustworthy.  They’re just old. The girls at Capsule Australia are onto something with their stylist curated...

Making hump day feel like the weekend!

Today I decided to road test my Happy Weekend dress from Capsule Australia. It only had to stand up to a chilly morning of teaching, a quick break for lunch and the small one “Have milk ‘fore Mummy goes?”, a drive down the peninsula and an afternoon of more teaching in a small, stuffy room. Easy, right? I paired with black leggings (lucky this dress is such a dark navy you can totally get away with it!), a skinny...

Pregnant does NOT equal style lobotomy.

Six months into pregnancy with my second child and once again I was in such a pickle (not to mention eating them). I had NOTHING to wear. Every ‘maternity’ item I owned was hideous and with hormones raging, the only logical solution seemed to set fire to my wardrobe and burn those maternity ‘clothes’ to ashes.  Ok, I did say with hormones raging…. Sure, there were a few pieces in the stores that looked...

What’s a Capsule?

Many mornings I stare into my (stuffed) closet and inwardly moan: I have nothing to weaaaaaaaar. Then I grab my mom bf singlet, jeans, scrounge a top and … hey. Tahdaaaah… I look just like I did yesterday. Boring. I need a few pieces in DIFFERENT styles so I can actually look … you know. Different? Enter the stylist’s secret: the magical capsule wardrobe. I think I used to do this pre-child. Each season, curate...

DELICIOUS Yumbox!

More and more frequently I find myself with a bag full of snacks for the small one. And given that she’s a dairy-soy-wheat intolerant person, the prepackaged kind don’t really work out so well here – not to mention that snack size everything is EXPENSIVE! So I end up with a bag full of small tupperware-y containers. I leave them in the car, I leave them around half-full (mould, anyone? No?), I can’t find...
