My Europe trip posts begin! We've had some issues along the way with wifi and travelling non-stop but finally I have some time to post a few snippets from our first stop on our trip... Naples, Italy! We decided to spend the night in Naples so that we could wake up the next day and visit Pompeii on the way to the Amalfi Coast. It was an odd place but I have to say that our dinner was a very welcome sight. We ordered pizza & bruschetta, but instead of bruschetta we ended up with what you see above - a collection of what is essentially kitchen 'scraps'. It came out in a paper cone and included deep fried veggies, dough balls and cheese (if anyone knows the name of this dish please share!). Obviously there was a language issue but we actually loved it! So glad I accidentally ordered the dough balls. We had a little wander around town before crashing into bed to sleep off the effects of jet lag. Next post: Pompeii!

Makeup haul: Benefit Cosmetics


Hey, look at that I'm talking about makeup again. It really has become a little bit of an obsession of mine lately and I don't hate that. Especially when the packaging is so damn cute - Benefit Cosmetics really caught me in their charming, sugar coated web ... but you'll hear plenty about my adoration of packaging in the video so press play and let me know what products you guys like/use/don't-like/drool-over. I love reading your comments so subscribe to my channel and get involved! My next videos will likely be from my Euro trip so there is more to come.

Dusty Pink

I'm not usually a big pink fan but this dusty pink dress is damn dreamy especially when paired with something a bit more quirky. I don't know how I come up with outfits like this but I love when things a bit less ordinary. Stripes and monochrome trends are all well and good but it's a mixture of prints & textures that gets me excited about fashion. I wore this for a lunch at Watsons Bay Boutique hotel - loved the antipasto boards & salads there!

wearing: Keepsake the Label dress (frost print) & RMK heels.

This post is a bit dazed. I'm blaming it on the sunshine, no matter what Michael Jackson says...
That's all from me tonight folks, this post can't get any better after that line.

BICYCLE

I little while ago (actually a long while ago as you can probably tell from the Autumn leaves) I filmed this fun little video with my sister who's is currently studying media production at university. It wasn't a project or anything, we just thought it would be nice to team up and make something together & hang out in the park for an afternoon. Pretty perfect when you've got these awesome Pannier bags to go on the back of your bike! I picked up these babies from Reid Cycles when I got my vintage bicycle a few months ago. I wish I had more time to ride it though! I feel like we've been jetting off constantly lately - but I can't complain. I'm actually off to Melbourne tomorrow for an event so keep an eye on my instagram (@emmalucey) for updates! x

OFF-THE-SHOULDER

Gotta love those winter days when you can bare your legs - not today unfortunately though! This rain in Sydney is pretty crazy. Fortunately, I've been spending my days inside this week so far. Unfortunately it's due to the flu. It's been all emails, cups of lemon & honey, multiple blankets and old episodes of Gossip Girl (don't judge - we've all been there). Hopefully it clears up very soon as I have a few exciting events & activities coming up very soon! Keep an eye on my instagram (@emmalucey) for updates.

We went to visit Mavi Australia HO to check out the full range and they were sweet enough to deck us out in denim so we are all ready for our visit to Mavi HQ in Istanbul next month! It wasn't hard to pick some good styles as all the Mavi designs fit me perfectly. I'm not going to spoil the outfits I have planned for the trip but it's not only jeans - perhaps a denim shirt and even a little DIY project is on the cards... so excited! I can't wait to be there and meet the Mavi HQ team too. Someone pinch me - am I dreaming? Nope? Then Europe here we come!

UNBOXING: Her Fashion Box


Another video from me! This time I'm unboxing a Her Fashion Box. I was actually interviewed for the monthly HFB magazine and shot an outfit with the infinity scarf that was one of the pieces featured in the box. Just a short video this time but let me know what you think! x

This is a near perfect outfit in my mind - all credit going to the clothes of course! I love this coat as it's so slouchy and paired with this fancy, velvety dress - it's a great contrast. I call it "New York in my nighty'. That cool with you guys? Cool. Have great weekends kids!

Since this is my blog and I can do whatever I want I'm going to go ahead and dedicate this post to the moon. Anything I say now probably won't explain the draw I have to that big rock in the sky so maybe I should leave it at this. Whenever the moon is out I can't help but stop & look at it - whether it be from the middle of the city or in the middle of nowhere in the 'outback' when we go camping down south - it always makes me feel calm & alone.

Watercolour

I'm not sure if I've even done an outfit post with this jacket yet but it's definitely been a favourite of mine this winter. That rich vintage-tan colour just draws me in and the butter-soft leather is utter luxury. I took it to London with me but not sure if I'll be needing it in Europe when I go next? Hopefully it will still be quite warm! We finally booked all our flights yesterday - better late than never, right? Getting pretty damn excited. It's not only a grand trip but it will also be my birthday when we are in Istanbul - it's a present in itself really.
