I am so lucky that part of my job is watching fashion shows and keeping up to date with what is going on in the fashion world! These are some of my favourite looks from Australian Designer’s Spring/Summer 2012/2013 ready to wear shows. These photos are all from Vogue.

It dawned on me this afternoon that I have had no real ‘me’ time lately. I get up in the morning and I am straight online on social media and news sites. I then spend the whole day busy with this blog and social media and fashion week and starting to get ready to go back to uni and just life really. I have decided that from now on I will be having some ‘me’ time each day. Ironically it is after 11pm already, however I have lit some of my favourite candles and am ready to relax!
The two candles on the right are from Temple of Light in Byron Bay. It is my favourite shop for candles and dream catchers and unique homewares. The third candle was a gift from my sister. The tea light burner, tea light and melt are all form Party Lite. Party Lite has some amazing candles and accessories and are definitely worth checking out.
What do you do when you need to relax or have some ‘me’ time?

I can barely contain my excitement for Gold Coast Fashion Week! I knew I would love being a part of it, but I forgot just how much I love being swept up in the fashion world and being a part of fashion week and fashion shows.
Due to contractual negotiations, legal and privacy, I can’t spill anything yet. But I can say it will be an absolutely incredible event, and if there is anyway you can make it I would suggest getting your tickets once they are released, you won’t regret it!
I can say the event is scheduled for September, exact dates coming soon! It is the only official Fashion Week or Fashion Event that will be going ahead on the Gold Coast this year.
Keep your eyes right here on livinglikeannie, also on the official Facebook page and Webpage of Gold Coast Fashion Week to ensure you are the first to know the dates, designers and artists that will be attending!
Which fashion event are you most looking forward to this year?
We all have an obsession with a beauty product. Mine happens to be nail polish, I love the Maybelline New Work and Rimmel London nail polishes and have many of them, however my OPI collection is the largest.
You can tell from the pictures the colours I use the most, I am girly and do love my pinks. No nail polish collection is complete without shatter or glitter and dark tones are an absolute must for the cooler months. I also wear darker colours in summer when I am feeling a bit edgy. Remember to keep nails short when wearing dark colours and use a top coat to minimise chipping.
Whats your favourite Nail Polish brand and colour?
Mimco is my new favourite store. I got a gift voucher for Christmas and decided I would go in and spend some of it. The gift voucher itself is beautiful!
I was getting sick of my big wallet so I decided I would get a cute purse instead. I looked online and Mimco had the perfect size, big enough to fit my phone, cards, cash and lip balm!
Choosing a colour was the hardest part! I wanted the black because it will go with everything, choosing whether to have the silver, gold or bronze detail was the hard part. I went with silver because it is understated.
What is your favourite purchase/gift over the Christmas/New Year period?
