Tassels & Pompoms by Rachel Burke


Rachel Burke is a multi-talented Brisbane based mixed media artist with a glue-gun and a dream. I first noticed her fluffy creations on Instagram and have since fallen in love with her apomogies and tasseled jackets.


Her fashion, art and doggies Daphne and Daisy make me happy and unless you are a minimalist, you’ll enjoy the uploads of water bottles, sunglasses and lovely legs covered in sparkly bits and pieces. Never have I wanted to buy bedazzled grocery items before I saw The Magical Mundane. I suggest you start with Instagram and follow the breadcrumb trail to her many site and adventures.

GOLDENTIME by Zimmermann


Sisters Nicky and Simone ZIMMERMANN founded their namesake brand in Sydney, Australia in 1991.

Is anyone else dieing from the latest Zimmermann collection or is it just me? I’m not a massive fan of runway rundowns but sometimes videos speak a million words, sometime in a more enjoyable format, so enjoy.



Fact #6: The word cheer comes from the Anglo-Norman chere (face) which is actually a transliteration of the Greek cara (head)

Gift giving is a delight until you have no idea what to buy. Fortunately I go through favorite “things” Oprah style and my current obsession is rad matching tees for siblings. In that department , Cheerily.co have you covered. They’re all out of “enough rolls to open a bakery” but other faves include “poppin bottles” and the “original gangsta” and “remix” combo tees.

Lorna Diwa built Australian company cheerily and runs it our of New York. Her clear flair for slogan tees is undeniable and fortunately they come in singles, combos, milestone cards and custom (great for those those friends who selected weird baby names like  kale and kombucha) !



Little Rooms


Fact #1 : ” In 2002, it was estimated that if current rates of human destruction of the biosphere continue, one-half of all plant and animal species of life on Earth will be extinct in 100 years.”

Little rooms certainly hold big things. For now I’ll ignore the fact there is a voluntary human extinction movement because who needs that kind of “Debbie downer” in their life, and focus on the amazing pieces of jewelry Little rooms produce. From chic earrings, to signet rings and all things UFO, their jewelry is (I’m going to say it) out of this world. We must have one…. each preferably, time share jewelry is not going to work out.




5 Insta famous people you might not be following but should


Fact #3 : Insta-famous is a term coined as early as 2012 to describe ”influencers on instagram”  , Urban dictionary considers them ”usually a pretty girl who posts a thousand pictures of her face or whatever food she’s eating. May include pictures of other people’s food”, though this is no longer completely accurate.


@sarahisinlovewith: “quirky style blogger and pink haired flamingo queen”. That’s a pretty accurate statement from her fairy floss pink hair to her pom pom tipped feet. She’s a blogger and her fun aesthetic is visible in every shot.


@afashionnerd: “Wes Anderson inspired style”. This self professed fashion nerd manages chic and crazy colourful all in one bound. I don’t know how she finds all the amazing things she does in LA but her account certainly convinces me I can pare back and still have fun.


@mstr_of_disguise: Ann-Marie Hoang is a wardrobe stylist with a cute tiny tot in tow and a bit of an aspirational follow. Her effortless cool is next level but definitely not intrinsic or sustainable for everyone. However it is fun to know you can wear cowboy hats, septum rings, crazy shades, chic coats and ikea bags if your heart so desires.


@dianarikasari: Diana is a mother, author, designer, owner, blogger and curator of a very cool personal wardrobe. It makes me tired just thinking about it but she’s been blogging for a long time and is open about the challenges she faces.  On the day to day you can see her cool outfit, fun spaces and adorable munchkins.


@snitchery: “draco malfoy in a matte lip” is a bit of an indicator of this mythical persona creating make up queen. Her looks are edited and stylized so not the sort of get up you might casually master to go to the shops but the results are awe inspiring.
