Welcome to my Blog.

Welcome to my blog. I live in Sydney and love living on the water but I like to be part of the Global Shopping Experience. My other favourite cities are New York, Paris, Rome,Tokyo & London and I would love to travel more around the World. I like to surround myself with dynamic and energetic people and luxurious things: Pink Champagne Afternoon Tea with Royal Albert Lady Carlyle; Wedgwood and Royal Doulton enhanced by Pale Pink and White Peonies; Yves Delormes Linen; Enjoy Lighting and Glasshouse Perfumed Candles; Crystal cut lamps and a great selection of music. Well cut designer suits, dresses and coats; White Gold Jewellery; Designer SHOES and handbags as well as hats; scarves; gloves; sunglasses; fun Mimco Jewellery accessories and Holster Bling flats are included in my organised pinklily wardrobe. My life must include going to the Theatre; Dancing and Fine Dining. I like to spend time Listening to Music especially Jazz by Diana Krall; Reading my favourite Fashion Magazines, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Vanity Fair with a cup of cappuccino at my side; Swimming in the pool; or experiencing Sydney Cafe Life and amazing Restaurants. Must mention how I enjoy spending time with my iMac; being part of a wide world of social media; My Blog; Twitter; Pinterest; Facebook; & chatting on my iPhone. I love challenges, new experiences, expanding my world and learning about great new ideas in design and style. Time spent with creative, people is interesting and exciting. I thrive on discovering new knowledge and enjoy researching and sharing new up to date ideas and media stories in Luxury Living; Style; Design; Fashion; Beauty; Entertainment and Travel . I will be blogging about living a life of luxury and I need to be organised to do all of this. Hope you join me in this journey. Enjoy GJB

Individual Style

We are all aiming for a personal style but we need 
new input, thoughts and inspirations.
You're at work and wearing a black dress and somebody suggests that you go out for a cocktail after work. How can you make this an easy transition?  

Yes the known formula is:-
Add some jewellery - some Bling or Colour.
Change the shoes to a higher heel and add a POP of a different colour.
Leave the big bag in your locker and add a clutch. 
If it's cold, change the blazer or suit jacket to a shorter fitted jacket.
You need a touch of personal difference. The Judith Leiber Evening Clutch is gorgeous but maybe it's more than we want to spend.                                                                                                                                                                                           
How can I create a different look? 
Make an individual statement with one of your accessories.

One of the well known classical Timmy Woods designs you will all remember is the famous Eiffel Tower crystal studded purse that Carrie wore in Sex in the City 1. It was also available without the crystals. An interesting design is her red lips evening clutch or there are more quirky designs such as the pink poodle. Maybe you'd like to start with a plain shape and give it an individual beaded or fringe design. Glomesh is still in fashion as well as vintage pieces. Check out the new Verite clutch in the Oroton range, Mimco's evening clutches or the huge range at Saks.  My favourite is  a small, round, hard silver metal, evening bag which is embossed with butterflies that I purchased from Saks which can be worn as a clutch or with the shoulder chain. Have fun looking for your pieces and why not look through magazines on line for some fresh ideas. Pick a style you like and try to find something similar in style with the right price tag. Next time you get asked out for cocktails, the answer will be a confident "Yes" because you'll be prepared to go out straight from work.
"Anyways", as Ellen would say make an individual statement that shows who you are. GJB215
