If you haven’t heard of Yelp please tell me you’ve been hiding for the last few years? Yelp is a worldwide thing. It’s a website and app created to highlight, share and review businesses in your area to promote them, discover new trades, services, stores and eateries and to make life a little bit easier for those looking for info. Plus it’s so much fun!
Fresh off the TPFF runway, Target‘s latest collection of Spring and Summer women’s wear is HOT HOT HOT and very “on fleek” for this season. The affordable fashion label has been a personal go to for years as they produce high quality every day wear at super low prices, so you should have seen my face when the latest threads stomped down the runway at the recent Telstra Perth Fashion Festival (more festival goodness here and here). I couldn’t not share all the new looks and bargains with you guys. You know how much I love fashion on a budget! THE TWO PIECE It’s all about colour, prints and vibrancy this season. This girl is happy because I live in clothing that tick all three boxes. Take this two piece top and skirt combo modelled by the face of Target, Jessica Mauboy. The print is perfect for the sunshine and you can wear the pieces together or separately. And guess what!? The entire outfit comes in at under $65. Score! The two piece is very in …
The latest Perth artist to take over kitsch gallery and goodie store Beau Est Mien in Northbridge is floral fanatic Ashleigh Perrella. I was kindly offered an invite to her recent exhibition, and was so pleased to see all different walks of life popping in to check out her super cute floral illustrations and giftware. Featuring an electric, fruity colour palette in bright oranges and pinks, the detailed range of sweet offerings included inspiration cards, gift tags and beautifully framed illustrations in her signature style. When I asked Ashley why she illustrates flowers, the answer was simple. “Flowers are just so beautiful, and there is so much opportunity for creativity and expression. I also just love colour, and drawing flowers allows for endless use of colour”. I’ll agree with her on that one, colour makes me happy too! Ashleigh describes her art as vibrant, fresh, whimsical and feminine, and draws inspiration from flowers, floral arrangements and floral designers. “Floral design is an artform and I absolutely love finding inspiring imagery that will be the …
If you’re looking for good, honest food in a beautiful, modern setting then you must pop by the new and improved Flour Factory. I was kindly offered an invite to the Queen Street eatery’s relaunch last week, and I couldn’t believe the transformation!
If you’re looking for somewhere new to discover on your next shopping adventure, Times Square Claremont on Avion Way is the way to go. Nestled in the heart of Claremont, the street is lined by beautiful trees and cobblestones, with future plans to further enhance the strip. TSC kindly invited a bunch of bloggers to #comefindusTSC, a morning of indulging in a tasty morning tea by Cookie Dough Biscuits featuring tasty chocolate brownies and of course cookies, followed by a mini tour of their unique shopping experience. My advice for discovering our own little Times Square? Browse the elegant and feminine gowns at Ae’lkemi, then pop by Cult Status and Wellington Store for something a little more street, followed by a cookie or three at Cookie Dough, and top off the arvo with some fresh blooms by Hannah Etherington Flowers. If you’re feeling flexible Twisting Fish Yoga is ready and waiting, and if you’re needing a massage post yoga the Bayview MediSpa can help you out. You can waste an entire morning on …

Fringe is my favourite time of the year. The city is buzzing with activity, something new and exciting is happening on every corner and there is literally something for everyone. From comedy to cabaret, burlesque to boylesque, you need to get into the city ASAP. Trust me, if you don’t visit Fringe World this month I’ll have to smack you. Noodle Palace was the venue of choice for tonight’s Fringe adventure (and my first of the season) for a storm. A Storm In A D Cup.
