It’s a girls worst nightmare, 9pm, big trip the next morning and not a scrap of clothing packed. Panic sets in, your mind freezes and you suddenly forget all the basic necessities that you need to survive a few days away from the comforts of home. Well, stress no more because we have provided the ultimate guide for packing for travel.
Whether you’re off for a few days, few weeks or a few months, there are always those basic essentials that you need to pack first. Nothing worse than having to ask a friend, or worse family member, to borrow some underwear because you left yours at home! Same goes for a toothbrush…sharing is not always caring. Use this same ‘basics’ principle when you’re trying to figure out what clothes to take, cover your basics and then throw in some pieces that will easily work with these! Before you know it, you’re packed and ready to start a much needed holiday, minus the extra packing stress!

Ah yes, it’s that time of the year! The time where we air out our favourite dresses, dust off those completely beautiful but terribly impractical stilleto shoes and dig out our favourite hats. Racing season!
Sometimes life gets the better of you and those special moments where you get to dress up and feel fabulous for a day get less and less, when Winter fades away and Spring rolls around though it’s time to get your frock on. Whether you’re heading out to enjoy the local race, watching the Melbourne Cup wherever you can find a television set or going all out at Flemington it’s important to dress up. Lots of women spend so much time choosing a dress they completely forget about accessories, those little things that really pull together a whole look. We’ve made the finding a whole lot easier for you because now you can find your latest Racing gear from the comfort of your own home. Grab the fanciest clutch you can find, set it off with some bright jewellery and you’re ready to run.

She has a size and shape for everyone ranging from smaller every day handbags to something larger that could even work as a stunning overnight bag. The bright colours have us craving summer more than ever, confident that our handbag needs for the season have been fulfilled.
