As I was clearing out my desktop (as I do at the end of every year), I found these unreleased snaps of my favourite 2015 highlights and thought I'd share them before the year was out!

From this special picnic with my favourite girls, to seeing Tay Tay, to jumping out of a plane in Queenstown, to celebrating Dannii's new Luxe Target collection at the X-Factor, it sure has been one sweet ride. Thank you all for following me on this journey and for your support the whole way!

Sending my love to you all; Be brave, say yes to new adventures and never stop growing.
Here's to bigger and better things; Here's to 2016!

And in the blink of an eye, it's that time of the year again!

In case you missed it on Instagram, this has been a rather accurate description of my Christmas shopping dilemma thus far.
If you're with me, then here are my top last-minute gift ideas (a collection of lovely new gifts and old personal favourites) to help get you across the line!

1. Mon Purse Monogrammed Shopper Bag - I carry my life around in this one. It's minimalistic, yet holds everything and the kitchen sink. Besides, a bit of monogramming action never hurt anyone.

2. Millie Marotta's Tropical Wonderland Colouring Book - For the big kid in all of us. You'll be surprised how therapeutic this stuff is!

3. Madame Flavour Tea Blends - You guys know I love my teas, and these new blends make great stocking fillers.

4. The Daily Edited Monogrammed Laptop Case - I needed one to match my bag! Also a practical yet personal gift for girls and guys alike.

5. Paula's Choice Berry & Bright Lip Collection - Make Tay Tay proud. Enough said.

6. The Black Line by Lauren A5 Letterpress Print - This one is especially for all my fellow homeware/interior lovers. Lauren does an amazing job with these inspirational prints (I've already got two on my desk and counting!)

7. Emma Kate Co Festive Tags and Cards - Some of the prettiest gift cards I've ever used. Make sure you've got at least half an hour before you jump on - with prints, and stationery, and beautiful new plated charms, trust me, you'll be browsing for days.

8. Samantha Wills Rings & Earrings - No surprises here, SW always has us coming back for more. Kicking on with luxe boho vibes this summer!

9. AIJA Silver Jewellery - Clean, laid-back and simple - another top hit for wives, sisters and girlfriends.

10. Bockers & Pony Christmas Hampers - So. Many. Options. And yes, that is a Gingerbread House of Jellies. Food, gifts, champagne, next day delivery - need I say more?

11. Glasshouse White Christmas Candle - Sure it's the furthest thing from a White Christmas in sweltering 'Straya, but we can pretend.

12. Bellabox Butter LONDON Nail Polish - Fresh nails in time for the new year; I'm still tossing up between Macbeth and All Hail the Queen. Thoughts?

13. Bellabox Sleek Lace Blush Palette & Contour Kit - More no-fail faves from my daily makeup routine.

14. Lorraine Lea Notting Bowl 3pc Set - Perfect for entertainers, perfect for summer.

15. Lorraine Lea Bamboo Blanket - You really can't go wrong with comfy bedding/snuggling/TV watching pieces.

16. An Organised Life 2016 Diary - Because there's no better way to jump into 2016!

Happy shopping & Merry Christmas, my lovelies!
