Guest Post - Morning Rituals

Big thanks again to Lady Sleekit for handing over the password whilst she is on maternity leave. Just two more sleeps until her little bundle arrives! I had the pleasure of the Lady's company over the weekend and even about to pop the woman is as stylish and polished as ever - amazing.

As we get to know each other over the next little while I thought I'd share with you my morning routine which is the same every single day. 

I have two little pugs who need walking and a caffeine craving that needs seeing to before my brain can get in gear for the rest of the day. 
More often than not I'll throw on some trackies and a hoodie and head out to the park sans shower and with a takeaway cuppa but if I'm up early I'll get proper dressed and take the hounds out for a coffee and a stroll.  

My black pug is Rudie the Rude Boy who came to us as a puppy last year and is a divine little devil with personality plus. Our newest family member is fawn coloured Sushi who we adopted from Pugs SOS a couple of months ago. Being a rescue we aren't sure of her age or what horrors the poor gal has been through - too many babies and a lost eye along the way - but she's settling in just fine and her little piggy tail is forever wagging which makes me think she is finally happy. 
 My lipsticky calling card

Pugs shed hair all year round so my most important accessory is a lint brush! They also have energy to burn so flat shoes for walking them are a must as we sometimes go for miles...

Last preggie post

 New blue raincoat from Leonard St, on sale from Bahamonde in Elwood $200 reduced to $80
Bubs first wardrobe in the background

 Picked these blue accessories from the NGV shop, bangle $10, ring $2.95, the brooch is from a vintage shop in Carlton
 My tights are from Little Salon on Gertrude St
 Love the collar detail, even works over my bump
Couldn't resist a little taste of Scotland, Tunnocks cushion from Etsy store nickimcwilliams for the nursery
 My friends know me so well, perfect babyshower gifts for moi, Limedrop earrings and ring
Cutest summer romper, body oil 

Firstly, I would like to thank my dear friend lady Anthea for her gorgeous wedding post. You will be seeing a lot more of this gorgeous girl on Sleekit while I concentrate on my little bundle. 
Anthea and I both share a love for fashion and with that cemented a truly great friendship, not to mention she's one of the coolest most generous hearted chicks I know! Look forward to many fabulous posts.
So this it it folks, my last post before I descend into a world of nappies and night feeds. On the back of a fairly harrowing first birth experience I will be having a C-section this Wednesday. Mental to think I will be checking myself in to have a baby. I'm excited but shitting myself at the same time, its been 5 years since I nursed and burped a new born, I'm sure it will all come back to me, eek!
In celebration of my impending arrival, my closest friends threw me a baby shower and this is what I wore. Forever hanging onto my sartorial style even at 38 weeks, I purchased this gorgeous mac, had my hair, nails and feet done, added a few accessories and arrived a vision of blue. We enjoyed a fabulous afternoon of food, cake and what turned out to be a cacophony of laughter and good times. Thank you ladies, you know who you are and love my gifts.
Hope to see you back on here very soon when I overload you with baby pics and tales of cuteness, till then...

Guest Post - A country wedding

Hello lovely readers! Lady Sleekit has handed me the magic password while she has her ever-stylish feet up waiting on the impending arrival of her new enfant - exciting!

Some of you may recognise me as Sleekit's occasional partner in fashion crime and for those who don't my name is Anthea - I do hope you enjoy my guest posts over the next little while. (I'm a little bit rusty with the blogging so please bear with me.)
I'd describe my style as vintage with a touch of rock'n'roll and little bit of cowgirl thrown in for good measure. 

Melbourne has certainly turned on a magnificent end to winter and I attended a gorgeous country wedding in Kyneton - about an hour from the city. 

 Posing with my lovely hubby

 Diamante brooch picked up at a vintage store in Palm Springs


Any excuse for a weekend away and of course to frock up! There was much toasting of bubbles to the happy couple and smiles all around.

Cheers to you dear readers - I look forward to next time...
