Is it wrong to LOVE this short trench coat from Target's Free Fusion range?

January 02, 2007

I went a little crazy in Kikki-K (Macquarie Centre). Christmas came too fast for me, so I didn't put as much effort into presents as I normally would - and I wanted to make up for it.

A little something for someone special - more to come!

National Breast Cancer Foundation products
November 14, 2006

The National Breast Cancer Foundation are kindly supported by many retailers Australia wide, that donate a portion of their sales back to them.

The ultimate goal of the National Breast Cancer Foundation's is to raise enough money to fund a cure for breast cancer. As Australia’s leading national not-for profit organisation established to fund all forms of research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer, we have a responsibility to ensure that the funds you work so hard to raise are used in the best possible way as we move towards making our goal a reality.

OzDesigner.com is dangerous for last minute, impulse buys.

Luckily, I'm planning ahead and can momentarily avoid that! These are just four of the most gorgeous dresses on the internet, that are stocked at OzDesigner.com

My favourite one is definately the India Frock in Red by Camilla & Marc. That dress is hot!
