What you see above is the package design for Meringue, a new upscale dessert boutique, created by Samira Khoshnood.

"It seeks to capture the air-whipped quality of meringue, the main ingredient in most of the store's pastries. Three types of packaging highlight the form and color of meringue cookies and macarons, two of Meringue’s signature sweets.

The origami-inspired cookie box emulates the folds and peaks of meringue cookies. Macaron boxes and bags frame the beauty and color of the macarons. Letterpressed tissue and seals add a pop of color and tactile quality to white and clear packaging."

This is simply gorgeous! Well done Samira!

Bassike A/W 2010 Lookbook

This is the new collection from one of my favourite Aussie labels Bassike, shot by photographer Beau Grealy. The pieces are basic but right on the seasonal trends for fall/winter 2010. Not to mention the male model above, doesn't he look damn fine?

Bargain buys: June

It's been a while since I've had time to go shopping, but with the mid-year sales on at the moment, I couldn't resist treating myself to a massive spree. The discounts are particularly tempting, with most things going from 50-60% off original price. Below are some items I picked up over the weekend:

OPI nail polishes in Swirl of Euphoria and Birthday Babe

Mini stamping kit from kikki.k

Simple but versatile reptile print flats from ninewest

I must say I'm pretty happy with these purchases. Currently wearing Birthday Babe on my nails (anyone else an OPI addict?) and the flats are so comfy for my feet, didn't even need to break these shoes in :)

... more items to follow in my next post!

And the sun has come out to play

Looking at this picture makes me really happy..... not only because I can almost feel the warm rays of sunshine on my skin, but because I adore the pairing of those cute shoes with this pretty dress and my wishlist just got longer!

Cold days a plenty

A quick post before I head off to work:

Just wanted to say I cannot believe how cold it is at 5am now compared to a month ago! Winter really has arrived and while it is great being able to bundle up in scarves and woolly cardis, rolling out of bed at this time of the day is torturous. I will no doubt be drinking lots of coffee today. Catch you guys later!

(... where I'd rather be)

Dainty Perfection

Liz & Chris - by Aaron Delesie

When I saw photos from this rustic-inspired wedding, I could not stop gushing over the shoes and dress! So utterly perfect. I too have decided I will splurge on a pair of out-of-this-world shoes for my own wedding to wear under the gown, even if no-one else can see it. It's a nice little touch and the snaps always turn out FABULOUS!
