Happy weekend y'all! These snaps are from Wednesday night's Westfield Autumn/Winter '15 collections launch party, featuring their new ambassador, the hilarious and super cute Derek Blasberg. Almost everyone in attendance coincidentally wore head-to-toe black, so I fit right in!

Even a rainy Sunday night couldn't dampen my excitement for the Australian premiere of Cinderella! First up was a pre-drinks reception hosted by Harper's Bazaar, featuring illustrations of the film's costumes by Megan Hess, an interview with the well-known illustrator herself, and a speech by the managing director of Disney.
Next was the actual premiere, at which I was gifted a sparkling tiara (similar to the one I received when I was made the Australian equivalent of my high school's Prom Queen #notsohumblebrag), which I of course refused to take off.
The film was absolutely beautiful and proved that Hollywood is finally closing the book on the whole "dark and gritty remake" thing, choosing to remain more faithful to the original classics that we all know and love. And yes, the two year wait for the release of Beauty and the Beast is already killing me!

These past few months, I have been mighty smug about Australia's summer weather, smirking at emails from Who What Wear touting "the best boots to wear on snowy days" and chuckling at articles on Byrdie recommending "the 10 best hydrators for winter skin". Now the tables have turned and I'm overwhelmed by articles about spring trends, while we Aussies are already feeling that telltale crispness in the air! There is certainly egg on my face, soon to be followed by those 10 best skin hydrators.

Last week, I was honoured to be invited to an intimate cocktail reception for the Alzheimer's Australia charity, featuring speeches by the inspiring Ita Buttrose and Sir Michael Parkinson.
Alzheimer's Australia was my chosen charity for Dancing With The Stars, so it was great to finally meet the hard-working people behind the foundation.
The dress code requested "business attire", which is a little foreign to me, but with the help of the lovelies at one of my favourite fashion PR firms, Adam Worling PR, I managed to work something out!You can learn more about Alzheimer's Australia HERE and donate to their research fund HERE.

How did FUTURE Music Festival roll around again already? A huge thank you to ARC Factory for the annual invitation to the festival and private food and drinks suite - it's always a nice break from having sweaty shirtless dudes smear themselves all up on my lady Caitlin and I.
