Early this morning my mother roused the family from our sleep to head down to Elephant Rock for the Dawn Service.
Hundreds of people had gathered on the beach to pay their respects and spend time remembering those who gave their lives for our country.
Watching the sun rise over the sea as the bugle played was a moving background for the scenes of Gallipoli that were playing in my mind’s eye.
We Will Remember Them.
After brekkie and a nap I’m now laying on the beach staring at the clouds as they drift on by. They look close enough to touch today!
There’s nowhere I’d rather be than laying on the beach in the last scrap of sunshine before winter is truly upon us.
Happy Friday darlings!
Today I’m busting out an old favourite for an after work drinks event… my Black Milk Clothing “Shredder Dress”.
Now if I’m honest… I forgot that I even owned this. I have way too many clothes – and I’ve culled significant amounts from my wardrobe in the past two years!! They tend to somehow accumulate again rather quickly… Hmm 😛
This dress is super flattering and very versatile. When in doubt.. wear black!
What’s your go-to piece for Friday afternoon fun times?
It feels like only a few days ago that the Black Milk Birthday Party antics were wrapping up for 2013… and yet here we are now just recuperating from the sheer insanity that is SharkieCon!!
The first SharkieCon to hit Australia, this was truly a weekend to be remembered!
I spent the weekend sunning myself by the pool at Aloha Waters with five beautiful women who really made the weekend extra special. Our holiday house was beautifully appointed and was on the canal at Broadbeach Waters. This was truly a restful and luxurious retreat, perfect for a girls weekend away!
We made the pilgrimage to Brisbane for the Birthday Party, this year held at the Queensland Museum; what a venue!
I had my makeup done by the wonderful Sarah Kay, she always looks after me for my creative make up needs! I stocked up on bindis and we got quite sparkle happy with my unicorn makeup look for the night 🙂

I wore my custom unicorn play dress, I call it the “Lexie Play Dress” – it was made for me as a goodbye gift when I left Black Milk a few months ago (and I adore it!). I also wore the Black Milk En Pointe Tulle Skirt which is such a gorgeous and flattering piece.
Sharks, whales and underwater creatures surrounded the partygoers in many rooms, an aerial gymnast curled and floated on her ring suspended from the roof, and beautifully costumed ethereal creatures on stilts walked amongst the sharkies who were dancing like there was no tomorrow!
All in all, a spectacular time, and I cannot wait to do it all again!!
