I was asked by Logitech to try out some of their new Case+ products, which came at the perfect time as I was in need of a gadget update! 

First up was the Logitech Case+Tilt. The tilt panel is multifunctional - it can mount your phone to metal surfaces, it can be a kickstand to prop your phone up or it can serve as an earbud cord wrap to keep them untangled in your bag. It comes in lots of colours too. I’ve personally found this really useful when taking selfies. It sounds silly but by ‘selfies’ I really mean outfit details (for my social media updates). When using self timer I would usually try and balance my phone on its side, risking it falling to it’s death off the counter onto the floor. Needless to say the tilt makes it much easier! This would also help if you like to make video calls or if you like to cook (which I do) you can put your phone on the fridge to read recipes from. Pretty handy! (RRP$49.95) 

 Next was the wicked Logitech Case+Energy . For those who tend to be out and about all day (and for those social media addicts - like me) it’s so frustrating when your Phone battery dies before the end of the day. At fashion week I had an external charger to get through the days but I always forgot the cord it required and I really needed to be sitting down to use it otherwise it always got tangled in my things when on the go. I’ve now been using this Logitech Case+Energy and it is perfect! I love that it fits on the back of the phone case and even the charger looks like a case! I don’t find it bulky at all and it’s simple to use. Ticks all the boxes for me! Definitely consider this one if you’re looking for a external phone battery. I’m actually going away camping for the weekend where there are no chargers so I will be putting this baby to the test again! (RRP$119.95) 

 Lastly, is the Logitech Case+Drive. Some of you may know that I bought a car earlier this year and I have to say I adore my Jimny aka Jim. Although now since I drive everywhere I get lost a lot so GPS is essential for me. I did have an old phone holder for the car but it was one you had to open the clasp and snap it in place (usually requiring two hands). After using the Logitech case+drive I realized how dangerous my old one had been. This one is so easy! After installing it (which can be to your windscreen or even to your dash - it comes with a special dashboard disk) all you have to do is place it on the mount for it to snap into place, thanks to the magnetic case! The case also comes with the car mount. The mount is adjustable so it can fit a lot of different ways and you can choose the placing that’s most comfortable for you and your car. The Case+Drive is RRP$69.95 which may sound a little pricey but when you consider it comes with the case and it’s ease of use then I really believe it’s worth it. 

 For a closer look at all three of these products check out this fun video by Logitech or visit Logitech for more in depth info. I’m excited to announce that the amazing Logitech team has also offered me these products to giveaway to my readers!

AKIN

I wore this little number between shoots in Alexandria not long ago. When you stumble upon a pretty blue wall like this - can you blame me for shooting some quick outfit pictures? Now would probably be an ideal moment to mention that I was able to shoot all these photos with my Panasonic LumixGM1 and my phone as the remote. Lots of people ask me what camera I use and I would completely recommend this one - especially for travel as it's so little. Plus if you're short a photographer on the go you can be your own!

Monochrome My Style

I'm not always a Monochrome type of girl - I love black and I love white but I always seem to sneak a bit of colour in somewhere! This time this rust red wall is the hero - or more like the sidekick to this skirt because damn, it's amazing. A nice balance between bohemian & casual. I liiiike that!

Ok, so drop waist dresses are kind of my new addiction. I was hesitant with the drop waist styles at first because I always thought they would be unflattering on me - but they are actually perfect! Super comfy and this one is a good length. This week has been a crazy, quick and amazing week for me - so busy which is great! Yesterday we decided we'd go on a little road trip and camping for the Easter long weekend so tomorrow we are off bright and early! Don't fear as I will still be posting (hopefully - if the internet works for me). Hope you all have amazing weekends!

ROBO COP

I have to admit I got a few weird looks on the train when I wore these Robocop leggings - so I probably won't go for a 'all-black-everything' look with these next time. As I mentioned in an earlier post I have been trying out a pair of these amazing Monster DNA Headphones myself and I love them! Mine are these sleek white ones and they are super handy for trips (especially road trips which is what I'll be doing this long weekend)! With that, I am excited to announce the winner of the Monster DNA Headphones giveaway is ... Mani from eat your teacup blog - Congrats! New giveaway coming soon  for anyone who missed out. Hint: more fun gadgets!

Right on Target.

It's that time of year when the weather goes a little wild. This morning was a bit chilly but fine and as I speak (type) it has now changed to windy with sudden downpours. I'm currently contemplating whether I should brave the storm tonight to attend an event ... I'm just hoping there's cheese there. Moving on from cheese (a sentence not usually heard from me), I am really big on navy. I'm also big on the odd bargain which is why this scarf was pretty much made for me. It's so huge & cosy. Target challenged me to style up an autumnal outfit and it was not hard at all! So many amazing things in store right now that I had multiple styles I was contemplating. I ended up going with this casual slouchy look - exactly the kind of thing you want to be wearing after a busy busy week, right? Flats and something to hide your tired face with (enter the scarf). Also I must say, please excuse the dog hair on me in some of the shots - we had just taken my puppy Penny-Lane to the vet. Try and spot her in the reflection of my glasses! Major fluff ball right now. But so darn cute.

p.s. My Monster DNA headphones giveaway ends tomorrow! Get your last minute entries in HERE

PETAL

Prior to fashion week I was lucky enough to be invited to Google Australia headquarters down in Pyrmont for a Blogger to Vlogger lesson with Youtube. I know... so lucky! It was all very exciting and I came away thinking that maybe even I could take on vlogging (even though I can only sting a decent sentence together when I'm typing it out on my keyboard - I'm hopeless when it comes to verbalising my thoughts on the spot in 'real life')! So I thought I would wonder aloud on my blog to see if you, as my reader, would be interested in seeing some more videos. I like to take on the odd outfit video now and then but never really taken on a proper speaking-to-the-camera video or vlog. Or perhaps even with captions (if I get scared)? Would love to hear your thoughts, as always! Happy Monday ladies & gents.

Day 1 started with a bang thanks to Mr Alex Perry - embellished mini dress & long chic gowns - featuring Victoria Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio. I had lunch with the gorgeous Connie from K is for Kani and then visited the Rekorderlig Gallery Bar to try their 'Passion for Fashion' cocktail. Cute mermaid prints at Gail Sorronda and then Bec & Bridge to finish the night on a high!

Day 2 included amazing drapery in baby blues, pinks and yellows at Michael Lo Sordo, Cowboy style at Cameo, pythons took the stage at the Paddington Reservoir Gardens for We Are Handsome and a mini jungle spat out models at Talulah. 

Day 3 started with boyfriend dressing at Dion Lee II. I met the lovely Kate Boissett (amazing chick!) and the stunning twins from When Words Fail. The Raffles showcase displayed delicate designs as always - lovely. We finished the night with a break from MBFWA with an advance screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel (by Wes Anderson) thanks to the incredible Gelato Messina who provided their re-creation of the delicious dessert from the film (which is available at their Darlinghurst store for those Wes Anderson fans out there, like me). So exciting!

Day 4 our spirits were lifted thanks to the Brilliant Alice McCall and her white wonderland - complete with snow - not to mention the lovely designs. It was my favourite show of the week! Next was daring designs at The Innovators - never disappoints! Zhivago displayed glittering grunge - another great show. Cocktails in the Star Lounge makes for a great mini escape. Details in lace, sheer and leather at Ae'lkemi and a safari adventure at Aje ended the week. 


Lastly, I have to say thank you to everyone who made this week special for me - new & old friends, the designers, plus all the PR peeps and those working hard behind the scenes. To my lovely readers, I hope you all like my coverage from the week! Till next year MBFWA.
