CoLAB Festival is what every festival should be like. Sweet tunes played while friends danced, couples chilled out on the grass with a beer in hand and delicious smells wafted from the food trucks. Held at University of Western Australia, this boutique sized event was the brainchild of WA locals; from the music industry, creatives, foodies and UWA clubs to the talented musicians that performed on the day. Presented by triple j, and The Music, CoLAB festival was the best way to welcome the summer.Read More

Mekel's WANDERLUST exhibition ran as part of Urban Couture 2014. Local fashion illustrator Kelly Coates' work always transports me to a world of fashion, flowing gowns and beautiful girls.

A framed original of J.Mendel lime green couture gown from this exhibition which was a lovely belated birthday gift from Mr CK and a limited edition print from Mekel's Perth Fashion Festival exhibition last year.Read More
This past weekend Mr CK and I went to stay down south in Margaret River. With the rain pitter-pattering around us, all we could do was relax and be whisked away into the land of food and wine.
A three hour drive from Perth, Margaret River is the ultimate destination for gastronomy and wine. With so many options on hand it's hard to know where to go. In my next blog post I will give you my top picks for a great Margaret River weekend getaway.Read More
This past weekend my blogger friends Bonnie Friday, Nadine from Modern Girls in Vintage Pearls, Liz and I were invited by Rockcliffe Winery in Denmark, WA to attend their annual Harvest dinner.

It is a fascinating process, I have a deeper appreciation for wine makers (and wine) after seeing it.Read More
