Fashion House - Elin Kling

Feeling all inspired with Elin Kling this week as she has landed in Australia for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia which started today.

For those who don't know who she is, Elin is a fashion blogger (probably the best), Design Director of the clothing brand Nowhere and Fashion Director of her own magazine STYLEBY.

Here's a sneak peak at her Stockholm apartment ...







Don't forget to check back on Wednesday when I'll share some of my favourite Elin fashionable looks.

Where I Want To Stay in ... Bali

When I think of travel to Bali, I think of the rustic Balinese villas to stay in. 
Beautiful and resorty, yes but my type, no!

A friend of mine got back from Bali this week (being in Perth it is very easy to get 3 hour plane ride over to Bali YAY !!) and she stayed at the W Retreat and Spa - Seminyak and said it was great.

The interiors are modern with hits of colour.
Clean and fresh - the perfect environment for me to relax and enjoy.








Hope you're all having a great weekend

Apartment Found!

I have found a place - such a relief I can't even tell you. 
I was starting to get quite worried about it just by looking and the price of these places. 
But I found my place, it was the first one I applied for and got (all whilst I was in Singapore)!! 

Here's a couple of sneak pics :

It's new and modern so I'll have to bring the character in
Nice clean sleek kitchen, yes I might start cooking
Bamboo floors
Open space that leads out onto a balcony
It's just on the edge of the CDB and a really nice area. Modern building, brand new really.
Strange thing for me is I have to catch a bus to work!! 
This sounds like the norm for many people but for me for the last 10 years or so I have been fortunate to drive to work and it was usually a 10 minute drive to work so jumping on a bus will be an adjustment!!

I still can't move in until the middle of next month. 
But that gives me a bit of time to get some inspiration of how I want my new apartment to look as it's a fairly blank canvas. 
As I am finding this move to Perth as a new chapter in my life and lots of new beginnings, I think my home should also reflect this.

SoHo Loft Tour

I'm not sure if it's the fact I'm living in an actual "city" again after 8 years in regional Queensland but I am being drawn to the more city living, modern style ... maybe.

I found this SoHo loft on Remodelista, which you can check out in full here but these are some of my favourite spots in the loft...








*** Update on my living situation here in Perth for friends and family wanting to know ***
I have found a place in this very difficult market in East Perth. 
But the viewing is on Wednesday ... whilst I am in Singapore !!! 
Fortunately I have someone who can go and look for me and put in my application. 
I am really hoping I get it as it is perfect!
Keep you posted.

Sorry I have been missing in action but I have been in the process of moving myself to Perth.

I'm about to approach week 3 
(even though last week I was in Melbourne so technically only 2 weeks!)
 and I am enjoying it.

Perth is lovely and I think the best way to describe it is there enough going on but not too much. 
Lots of great little eating spots and clothing boutiques and the people I have met so far are all so friendly.
And the weather is beautiful at the moment, perfect actually.

But I am feeling a little challenged in finding a home!!! It's not about me being picky (much) but ...
a) there isn't many to choose from
b) it is SO EXPENSIVE!!! It is insane
The vacancy rate is - no wait it's not "vancant" - apparently it's 99.7% FULL!!!!!!
So that is a bit of a stress but I'm positive something perfect will come up soon.

But I'm not have tech problems like I did when I moved to Cairns 
so I can at least keep in touch with my blogging, phew!

I'll be back soon
