Wearing: Pepa Loves top, Topshop wrap skirt (similar here), Topshop RISK black heeled sandals (similar here & here), Another8 ‘Jamie’ black leather backpack, Oscar Wylee ‘Brooke’ sunglasses (similar here), Lucy Folk friendship bracelet and Samantha Wills necklaces (similar here).

One crazy 24 hours is about to begin! I can’t decide what’s more important to do right now, pack for Sydney or cram in some last minute revision for an assessment tomorrow. After wasting too much time contemplating, I have ended up here, getting just one more post up before I sleep, frantically pack and cram last minute revision (what I get for blogging right now..), drive to uni, smash (I hope) that assessment, drive as fast as I can within the speed limit to get home, get changed, make my way to the H&M launch party (!!), run home and catch an early morning flight to Sydney. I am so excited to see H&M finally hit Australia and the fact that they are opening their first store in Melbourne is 100 times exciting! Hopefully the introduction of H&M and Uniqlo (also opening in a couple of weeks)  will mean that more international chains will soon warm up to the idea of visiting our shores. Perhaps a COS in Melbourne, H&M? :-)

Wearing: Lilya navy fur coat, Missguided white slip dress, RMK Avelyn ankle boots, Lilya kitty beanie, Mimco flashback barrel bag, Gorjana earrings, Samantha Wills necklace, vintage sweater guard and The Dark Horse jewellery horse shoe ring.

There’s always space in the wardrobe for a warm fur coat in Melbourne! Even if it means putting on the lightest dress just so you can bring out some fur in Autumn. This, obviously not today’s outfit given today’s warmth but about a week ago when we had the sudden <18 degree days I found myself reaching for this coat as I headed out the door.

Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga. Around the home: Samantha Wills jewellery chest, Jennifer Madden & António Soares prints via Arte Limited Gallery, Suku Home Mojito quilt cover set, Ikea vases. Wearing: Pepa Loves mustard dress, ASOS white crop top, ASOS pink midi skirt (similar here), Tokito sparkle knit jumper via Myer and Gorjana star earrings.

Finally, a peek into the new place I call home! I’ve been the lucky owner of a lovely new laptop by the name of the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga which I’ve been trialling over the past week and so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show you how I’ve been integrating it into my life whilst taking a tour around my new place at the same time. It’s almost been half a year since moving and things are slowly starting to look how I want them to.

I’ve think I’ve found love in the ThinkPad Yoga – this nifty ultrabook/tablet loves yoga as much as I do. Perhaps even more as its taken it as its name as well! Its unique 360 degree flip screen means that it can hold a downdog (or in more official terms, the ‘tent’ position) whenever you want it, wherever you want it – never before have I thought about placing my laptop on my window sill without fearing for its life. And aside from the usual laptop and tablet modes, it also sits comfortably on my bed like a little stand, perfect for broadcasting Clean Bandits with enthusiasm whilst I blog away with its digitiser pen.

Whilst it’s still new to my home, I’m so looking forward to seeing just what this laptop can help me achieve in both work and study over the next couple of months. For now, I think it has already found its happy place in my Scandi-inspired new home.
