I have an obsession with Amber. I love all shades of it and pretty much anything made of Amber ends up on my WANT list. The necklace I wear permanently is from my Mother and is a gorgeous piece of Amber. I consider amber to be signature stone these days and am currently on the hunt to add more pieces to add to my collection. 

I love the idea of tiny pieces of History embedded within the stone that I can carry around with me. The colour is also always gorgeous and plays into my love of all shades of orange, peach and warm golden tones. 

Do you have a signature stone? Colour? What are you lusting after this week?

What I Wore: To Work

Top by Mink Pink
Shorts by Shilla
Click to Enbiggen my Goofy Face
I wore this to work on a day when it was 36 degrees and was soooo happy I did. Got a lot of compliments on the top. 

I am  looking forward to wearing this lace top with lots of different colours underneath. Its got a really lady like feel and I rather enjoyed pairing it with shorts to break that up a little. 

I love the tailored shorts. They are light cotton, super comfy and easy to dress up and down! Utterly my favourite buy of the summer.

What piece of clothing are you loving and wearing to death at the moment lovelies?

Mini Lust Have: Wonder Women & Mac

Wonder Woman & Mac
Mac is releasing a Wonder Woman inspired collection. I drool over mac collections with startling regularity and this one is no exception. Bright colours with a twist of geek! Awesome! 
 Obey Me : Nail Polish

The Spirit of Truth : Nail Polish

It is marked for International Release in March and I am eyeing off the Nail Polishes and Lip Glasses the most. After all how can a girl resist a Lip Gloss called “Secret Identity” and “Athena’s Kiss” or a Nail Polish called “Obey Me” and “Spirit of Truth”.

Wonder Woman by Mac

What do we think lovelies? Excited or just another way to get geeky ladies to part with our hard earned cash! 

For more information on the collection check out Temptalia for prices, more pictures and a list of all the pieces included :)

35th Floor - Gorgeous Views!

Gold Coast by Miss Addict
I am currently sitting on the 35th floor of the most amazing hotel on the Gold Coast. Wind blowing in my hair feeling relaxed and utterly super stress free. I did not realize until I got here how badly I needed a holiday! But I did and I am here and its incredible!

The weather is amazing which considering that the a large part of this state is under water is bizarre and makes me feel extremely guilty for enjoying it!

If you follow me on twitter you’ll have seen some of the other photos I have been tweeting :)

What are you lovelies doing this week?

100 & 1000's Cupcakes

100's and 1000's Cupcakes

This weekend I decided to try out my new mixing bowl, piping bag and measuring cups that I got for my birthday. I decided on cupcakes since my lot  the halloween cupcakes turned out amazingly... This time wasn't such a success sadly... 

Pink Cupcake Batter
I did actually colour both the cupcakes themselves and the icing pink and try and marble the cupcakes. The marbling was pretty much only visible when they came out of the oven...
Cupcake with Marble effect

The icing went way to runny to pipe so I have yet to try out all the fun tips on my piping bag. Still they taste delicious and with a bunch of 100's and 1000's on top they look like they belong at a kids party which suits me just fine :) but I think I may love pyrex a little more than is natural... 

How bout you lovely people? Baked anything delish lately?
