 I’ve been in a distinctly colourful mood this week, with my eye being caught by bright hues in clothing and homewares, perhaps in resistance to the inevitable Winter that is about to descend upon us (but LOVING this spate of unseasonably warm Melbourne weather!). I always try to avoid wearing too much black (though, it will be eternally chic in the right hands), and I’ve been paricularly loving the peaches and salmons that are hitting the stores. Do you have a new fav colour that you’ve been crushing over lately?

Perhaps you’ll find it in our fab Friday Roundup this week – it’s chock full of goodies from our specialty blogs, not to mention some great events and offers just for you! Enjoy!
