Fairytales do exist!

Melbourne's answer to Miranda Kerr, Lucy Mcintosh has just announced her engagement to DJ Poet of the Black Eyed Peas - after he proposed while sailing in the Maldives.

Lucy's star has been on the rise since winning the very first Fashion TV Diamond Model Awards last year, and has shot several high profile international campaigns since - check any 'Cotton On' window, here and in the United States. When asked about his love for the Aussie stunner, DJ Poet said, 'She's my muse, my fiancee and the love of my life.' (now everyone say 'Ahhhhhhhh').

Big congratulations go out to the two of you!

Check out the story I shot on Lucy's big win at the FTV Diamond Model awards here!

And so it begins ...

Strolling up Chapel Street today, I recoiled in horror at the sight of a certain necklace adorning a store mannequin. I know, I shouldnt be surprised - I mean, everything seems to be getting ripped off these days - from Louis Vuitton to Sass & Bide - but I never thought I'd see the day when Nicole Richie's jewellery label 'House of Harlow' would be so blatently copied.

Sucks for all those girls who've paid big $$$ for the real deal.

Keeping Up with Kim ...

Anyone whose been following me on twitter knows that I've gone Kardashian Krazy! After hearing she would be making an appearance at a local Optus store (she's here to promote a new phone for Optus), I kinda went a little loopy.

My boss felt so sorry for me, she even let me wander up Chapel, after local police mentioned they were showing their 'presence' as she was shopping up the road. But alas, my efforts were to no avail - I experienced exactly ZERO Kardashian sightings - Even after leaving my phone number with the girls at Zimmermann, just in case Kimbo popped in for a spot of bikini shopping.
However - she did show a little love on the site - answering questions live!

Of course there were the regular freaks proposing marriage and girls asking her about plastic surgery (which amusingly she denied - one blogger even stated 'Losing weight doesnt change the shape of your nose') however all I wanted to know about was her makeup. As it so happens, her favourite lip gloss is by Lip Fusion, and as for nailpolish - it’s 'My Private Jet' or 'Linkin Park after Dark' (go Kim, my favourite!)

As for foundation - she wears Georgio Armani and MakeUpForever.
If anyone out there can tell me what highlighter Miss Kardashian uses on her cheeks, I'll be forever in your debt! Although there have been suggestions that it isnt highlighter, but cheek implants that are making her look so chiselled. hmm.
Ahh well. K-Dash, I love you anyway!

Liberty Harlow is open for business!

As some of you may be aware, I've been wanting to start up a Vintage and Designer clothing business for almost a year now (Yes, I like to procrastinate)!

Slowly, I started building on my stock, sourcing amazing pieces from all over - and it got to the point where we thought we may have to move because ... well my 'cup runneth over', so to speak. Part of me began to wonder if starting this business was a justification of my excessive shopping habits, the other part told me to stop being such a whinger and just whip out my Visa card** Either way, I'm now making these pieces available to the public!

Last week Liberty Harlow made an appearance at the Round She Goes markets, and the feedback I received was amazing. Having said that, I'll be holding a stall at the next one!

When: Sunday 18 July 2010
doors open at 10am and close at 3pm
Where: Kingston City Hall (formerly Moorabbin Town Hall)
979 Nepean Highway, Moorabbin, VIC 3189
Melways Ref: 77 D5

If you cant wait til July, then feel free to check out my new ebay store, with new pieces being added weekly!

And if there is a piece or a style that you are having troubles finding, feel free to drop me an email at & I'll be sure to keep an eye out for you!
