10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS – 8. Bugatti Vera Electric Kettle
December 22nd, 2011
With astonishing looks, the ultimate present for mum’s kitchen this Christmas is the Vera Electric Kettle by Bugatti.
Great design isn’t just about good looks. It’s about creating useful products that make your life simpler and easier… but a sexy sleek exterior certainly does help!
Bugatti is at the forefront of Italian design, and their Vera Kettle is a stunning example of function and style. Made from lacquered die-cast metal, the kettle features a unique cone shape that is stylish and boils water up to 25% quicker than other kettles. The Vera sits on a 360˚ power base, so you can position it where you like in the kitchen, and it is fully cordless and portable.
Plus, half of the great features of the Vera are not in the kettle, but in its cool angular handle. It features integrated electronic controls that allow you to perfectly control the temperature of your water, as well as a timer that uses the in-built clock to let you set when the kettle will boil. Simply press the button, and the kettle will be boiled and ready for your tea break!
If you want a stunning kitchen appliance that is as useful as it is good looking, then don’t look past Bugatti. Italian design, at its very best!
Available at all good department stores, including Peter’s of Kensington for around $330.

Set to a remixed classical overture the David Koma SS11 show rocked out with some amazing ‘amour cut out’ detail dress, filled in with chiffon paneling.
With the beginning of the show featuring light fabrics in whimsical shapes, the introduction of leather into the range was rather ‘hot housewife’ in its apron like use.
Continuing in it’s evolution the range, 50’s influenced dresses and body conscious silhouettes combined with strips of leather appliqué and metal embellishments which imitated python scales.
As a general synopsis the range featured graphic prints and wicked wedges in a mostly monochromatic colour palette with an infusion of power tallow and pink, metallic gold and pearlescent snake leather embellishments.
I loved the ‘cop this’ metal cuffs – I think we’ve got some seriously hard core accessories coming out next season! I’m excited!
Oh and hello Jess Hart! We all know here as the Australian sweet heart and face of Seafolly and Myer, and also from here appearances in the reality TV show The City – she was stunning on the runway although I thought it was a shame that no one seemed to know who she was… don’t worry, I educated them!

Chanel Skin Art at Myer – Les Trompe-l’oeil De Chanel
August 4th, 2010
A little while ago, Lara Bingle made famous the Chanel temporary skin art, Les Trompe-l’oeil De Chanel.
As soon as she attended the Allan Border Medal gracefully covered in the skin art, Australian women (and men) went crazy over it and wanted it for themselves. They quickly became hard to get and disappeared (much like Lara) from the Chanel counters at Myer. They are now once again available and ready to transfer onto your skin for something a little different.
In my opinion, it’s a little tacky, but at the same time it’s a little bit of fun and with the 55 exclusive individual tattoos in the pack, you can put them anywhere and design whatever you like as seen above. They are hand-drawn by Peter Philips, the Global Creative Director of Makeup for Chanel which were designed for the Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Show in Paris.
Get your pack from the Myer counter for around $35.

There’s Nothing Like A Beautifully Scented Space
April 7th, 2010
Each day when I leave work (usually with a headache), I drive home, drive into my garage, hop in the lift, get to my floor, where I instantly smell my apartment. It’s pleasant, soothing and I love opening my big front door to find my personal and private space being infused by my Magnolia fragrance diffuser by Scented Space.
It’s a calming, but bodied scent, which has abit of an old world cottage charm to it, but fits in nicely with my eclectic décor. I have found that finding a scent to match a home is a hard thing to do. You don’t want coastal scents in a quaint cottage in Balmain, or the scent of vanilla in a clinical and polished concrete apartment in Darlinghurst. Matching is important to complete a space.
Scented Space have a range of 20 scents to choose from and are exclusively sold at Myer for $34.95.
