It’s amazing what flowers can do-  they can express love, bring a smile to a person’s face, offer comfort during tough times.

Having a good florist handy for special occasions (or even everyday) is a must. For those that are time poor, Flowers Across Sydney is definitely a company you want in your address book.  They are a  family run online business who deliver premium flowers for any budget. Their prices are seriously reasonable compared to other florists in Sydney, they have a wide selection of bouquets, and they do same day delivery!

This business also has a big heart, initiating the GIVR program. Each month a selected charity is paired up with one of Flowers Across Sydney’s most popular arrangements, with a portion of each bouquet sold  donated to the selected charity.

For the month of March, 10% of each “Sweet Smiles Arrangement” sold will be donated to the Humpty Dumpty Foundation- a Children’s Charity that purchases essential medical equipment used in Pediatric Wards, Neonatal Units, Maternity and Emergency Departments in hospitals nationwide.

Keep this local, socially responsible business in mind next time you need to buy a bunch of flowers. Help  spread joy to your loved ones and also give back to an important cause at the same time!

AG Jeans Phoebe in 19 Year SplinterThe Claire Shirt by AG, Attico Mules, APC Half Moon Bag

This season a pair of statement jeans is a key style update for any wardrobe.

AG have nailed this trend with the Phoebe in 19 Year Splinter. Whilst a year or 2 ago I lusted after the most distressed and ripped denim, these days I prefer my rips to whisper on the hem of my jeans. This pair features a high waist, an uneven hem and two toned denim- points that are interesting but not over the top. I’m after a cleaner, “more European” look, that can work casually but also be dressed up. Pairing these jeans with a striped shirt creates a chic, but timeless look.

I love the versatility of these pieces and am certain they will become wardrobe staples.

Key features to look out for when shopping for statement denim:

  • Length– I prefer a cropped length to show off my shoes. Pair your shoe of choice with fishnet tights/socks for a very “of the moment” look.
  • Hem– look for a step, raw, or uneven hem.
  • Wash– I’m loving blue washes at the moment- especially vintage blue (think Levis).
  • Extra detail– embroidery, patchwork or two toned denim. Choose one not all.

Happy shopping!
