The Week that was…

Oh My Goodness Fashionistas. WHAT A WEEK!!


Let’s start with Sunday because it is my favourite day!


I picked up my Mecca Loop Box. Mecca Cosmetica Beauty Loop boxes are available to those who spend a minimum of $300.00AUD a year at any Mecca Cosmetica, Mecca Maxima or their online shop. They have 4 boxes available per year (each quarter) and the level of box (1, 2 or 3) that you receive will depend on the amount of money you have spent in the previous 12 month period before each review date.

I am at Level 3, (yep, that means I spend wayyyy too much there!).

Let me tell you these gifts are very generous. But damn you Mecca! Even more products to get addicted to!!


Mecca Cosmetics Make Up remover, Tocca Perfume Sample, Terry loose powder asmple, Verso Super Facial Serum sample and full size Stila Pencil.

Totally in love with the beautiful black and white clutch, the gold rings, the Coral Colours lipsticks and the vouchers and samples.  See my last review of Her Fashion Box HERE

Work strategy meeting at the beautiful Chateau Elan at the Hunter Valley.

Most of Thursday was taken up by the meeting but late afternoon had us sitting on the verandah, overlooking the golf course, sipping Long Island Teas. Yeah. Life is tough. A stunning place, right in the vineyards. Kangaroos were coming right up to our rooms.


A beautiful dinner that night and some great laughs.

On Friday was a team activity planned. It was kept a big surprise, and when we found out we were doing challenges on Segways, we were stoked.

If you ever have the chance to try these, go ahead. They are loads of fun.

And of course, our team won.

I have been looking forward to this for ages. I started blogging after doing several style challenges by Fox in Flats

And there are literally 100’s of other women partaking in these challenges, and we have created a beautiful, supportive community of like minded women.

Saturday was the day of the Fox in Heels Cocktail Party, a chance to meet Andrea, the editor in chief of Fox in Flats, and to meet up with some of these wonderful women. Friday night I managed to catch up with a few of them but Saturday Night was the big night. It was huge. It was wonderful and it was great fun, with lots of big laughs.


Can’t wait to do it again!

What a weekend. Such fun such beautiful women. This is the only photo on my phone with Andrea ms @foxinflats as you can see I am totally starstruck.  Thanks for all the organisation xo#FOXINHEELS

And now it is Sunday again.

The Grey Goose cocktails from last night, were delicious, but made me just a little tired today. So it was very much a very hot, relaxing day today.

It was a wonderful week, and guess what. This week is going to be pretty huge too, with a Gala Dinner on Monday Night and the Races on Saturday.

Sigh. Tiring, but GREAT fun!!!

How was your week?


Til next time,
