It’s the most WONDERFUL time of the year!

15 Dec

Christmas is only 10 days away, and it really is the most wonderful time of the year! I love the colours that come to life during the festive season and all the things that follow with it – the smell of pine, the plethora of gingerbread houses on display, the excitement in the air and of course the carols that come into loop on the radio and at shopping centres.

By now you should have a good idea of what to get your loved ones and how you plan to spend the days over Christmas. However, if you’re still in need of some gift inspiration, or maybe would like some ideas to hint for yourself, I’ve put together the 10 best gifts for Christmas, in no particular order of course! And, just click the store link to purchase!

1. Tiffany & Co. Metro Heart Pendant in Rose Gold, $1,550
Tiffany-Metro Heart Pendant $1550
Who doesn’t love a little blue box on Christmas Day? This pendant is as elegant as it is beautiful and will be the perfect addition to the jewellery collection. It’s the perfect little piece for everyday wear, but also a striking statement piece.

3. West Elm Faceted Glass Vases, $49

West Elm recently opened at Chadstone – The Fashion Capital, and it has changed my life, it’s so great to have this US home brand on Australian shores! I spotted these glass vases on the day of opening and haven’t stopped thinking about them! They’re they perfect vase for a bud, or look stunning on their own – perfect for the bedroom, bathroom or living room.

4. Mecca Cosmetica – Diptyque Baies Candle, $78
Diptyque Scented Candle Baies
Who doesn’t love the smell of Diptyque candles? This fresh rose scented candle is one of Diptyque’s most iconic scents and evokes the feeling of being present in a rose garden in France. It’s a gift that wont be re-gifted, and one that will last months to come.

5. Tiger & CoCo Acrylic Frames, from $24.95

I have fallen in love with acrylic frames – they are a classy and modern alternative to traditional frames and create a clean finish to your treasured memories. These Tiger & CoCo frames are the perfect gift, and their range is beautiful, well priced and perfect for your loved ones!

6. Campari, see stockists for pricing

Nothing says summer more than a Campari cocktail, so if you’re invited to a summer soiree, why not gift some Campari! On a side note, Campari have just released their 2015 calendar featuring the beautiful French-born actress Eva Green – they can’t be bought but I’m giving one away on my Instagram – see @RochelleCurrie_ to win one!

7. Safari Living – Tom Dixon Candles, $113

If you follow my Instagram account, then you would know that I am obsessed with Tom Dixon’s design, and these candles are no exception. Encased in beautiful nickel, brass or copper, these candles provide a sensory insight into the happenings of London town, and the solid morwad marble lid is the icing on this perfectly created cake.

8. David Jones – Tom Ford Lip Colour, $68

Have you ever used Tom Ford lipstick? If your answer is no, then you’re totally missing out. There is something incredible about Tom Ford lipstick, the colour is rich, the texture is clean and the stay power is strong. If you were wondering, my favourite shade is Flamingo…

9. Village Cinemas Gold Class Tickets, from $50

Who doesn’t love a night out at the movies, and even more so when it’s in Gold Class at Village Cinemas. It turns an ordinary experience into something special, with delicious food offerings, large comfortable seats and even a blanket to keep you warm it’s a gift that keeps on giving!

10. Burberry Heritage Check Cashmere Scarf, $715

Whilst it may not be winter in Australia, a Burberry scarf is still the perfect gift for Christmas. The classic check design is sure to last throughout the seasons and the touch of monogram adds a personal feel to the iconic design.

Bed Time.

There is nothing quite like a beautiful bedroom, the right coloured walls, perfect lighting, crisp sheets and the fragrance of your favourite candle.

It’s where dreams are formed, rest occurs and the place your eyes awake to each morning.

It doesn’t take a lot to make a bedroom beautiful, the key is to use soft colours, incorporate beautiful scents and find one or two accent pieces and display them proudly.

Here are some of my favourite bedrooms:

Thurley Resort Collection

2 Oct

The lovely ladies at Thurley have been creating some incredible pieces over the last few months, and their Resort collection (which has just landed in stores) is to die for!

From white on white to monochrome, to print and bathers (their first collection of bathers, I might add), Thurley have definitely created a collection with pieces (you’ll definitely fall for more than one item) to covet.

Here are my favourite picks from the divine collection:

20 Days Away

30 Sep

In ONLY 20 days, Benjamin and I will be jetting off to the land of the free, also known as; USA!

I know, it’s ridiculous how fast it came around right? I KNOW! I almost cannot believe it’s that close myself, and yet my handy little countdown app informs me that this is actually correct! With that in mind, I have to say; my saving skills are really going to have to get into gear in these last few weeks as there is much shopping for me to do.

San Fran!

Anyway so a little update on my itinerary, Ben and I were very lucky to get seats to see Jay Leno in LA and I have been informed of some fabulous shopping spots in SoHo and LA. By the way, if you have some tips for me, please send them through!

So a few weeks ago I mentioned that Qantas had some exciting news to share, well they do! They announced the extension of Select on Q-Eat to Premium Economy customers travelling on select international flights – including Los Angeles to Australia!

Yummy-ness!

Select on Q-Eat allows travellers to pre-order their meal prior to flying – how great is that! This offers people more choice, including an additional dish available as an online exclusive on select routes – again, amazing right! Travellers with Qantas flying Premium Economy can now pre-order their choice of meal between seven days and 12 hours prior to departure via ‘Manage Your Booking’ at the Qantas website.

An example of a delicious dish!

Very exciting for Qantas travellers, I for one am super excited about their news! Just another reason why you should choose Qantas!

It’s getting close!

10 Sep

Sorry for the overly excited posts, but the trip to USA is getting so close, and with all the buzz happening in New York with MBFW my excitement levels are ridiculously high! I am excited to be flying with Qantas who have some super exciting news to share with the public soon – I’ll be posting about that in a few days!

Although, I have a few dilemmas (surrounding the issue of some outfits as it’s both hot and cold in USA and I need an outfit for Halloween!) I have to say, I’m really looking forward to the festivities and the fashion that lies ahead in this trip! And of course the fact that I get to be a total tourist and eat my fair share of penut butter m&ms…

Anyway, back to some information and inspiration, here are some of my favourite street-style looks from New York Fashion Week.
