flowers across melbourne // extraordinary bunch

20 Mar 2016

Flowers are one of those gorgeous indulgent things that you don't always buy yourself. So when Flowers Across Australia got in touch to offer me a bunch of flowers and a chance to review their website and services, ummm yes! The website is incredibly easy to use and you can search by occasion, type of flower, style (bouquets, vase arrangements, etc) and price.

I ended up choosing the Extraordinary bunch and it got delivered to my work without any issues and was sitting on my desk by the time I got back from Friday lunch. Yay! It came with a little personalised message, instructions on how to keep them in tip top condition, and a sachet of flower food. It's been over a week since I received them and while the lilies have finally wilted, the celosia (the coral-esque flowers) are still going strong with the green ferns/fronds (you can tell I'm up with my flower lingo).

One of my colleagues was looking to send a bunch of flowers to her friend and we did some price comparisons and Flowers Across Australia had some of the prettiest bunches of flowers at reasonable prices (winning!).

Follow Flowers Across Australia (who will be available in Sydney too!) on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

It has been a very, very long time since my last link it post! I've had some links saved from as far back as when Zayn left One Direction. That was a looong time ago. Hope everyone had a fab Christmas! The photo above is my cake date at Chester Street Bakery with my bff in Brisbane.

competition time // win a £400 farfetch voucher! (approx $800 AUD so quite a lot!)

29 Dec 2015

I'm about to (maybe, if you don't already know) introduce you to a site that you could possibly spend hours on. I know because I just did - whoopsies. Farfetch collaborates with over 300 fashion boutiques from around the world and offers shopping from all of them on the one site. Handy, huh? Farfetch are also running a competition to giveaway a voucher for the site worth £400 (so approx $800 AUD). Entry details are at the bottom of this post.

They got in touch to let me know that they've just relaunched their app Farfetch Discover and it's super user friendly and easy to navigate (a must for me, otherwise I delete it straight away). There's weekly edits like party outfits for New Years Eve (so many sparkles!) and you can save products to your wishlist by tapping the star on any product. My current wishlist totals up to about half of my annual salary... That is going to need some culling.

Since I'm a Melbourne girl through and through, despite growing up in Brisbane, I have a lot of black in my wardrobe. Black, quite simply, is the new black for me. Check out my top picks below.

To go in the draw to win the £400 voucher, simply enter below by following Farfetch on a social channel and download the brand spankin' new app! Hurry, entries close in two days on Thursday 31st December - yup, New Years Eve. (The widget doesn't seem to be appearing, so click the link below to enter!)

Espresso Martini Cupcakes
It's been forEVER! The last few months have been taken up by an overseas holiday, a slight role change at work, and a new blog! Introducing Frosted Not Stirred. Friends have told me for years to start a food blog and I finally worked out what to blog about... Cocktails in cupcakes! I made some mojito cupcakes for a work friend's birthday and they were such a hit, I thought I'd keep rolling with it. One of my friends used to be a fancy cocktail bartender so I've been hitting him up for cocktail recipes and fun facts about the cocktails to go with my posts. Check it out at Frosted Not Stirred.
