Last night the weather in Canberra was hot however I was lucky enough to be one of the selected few to attend the VIP official launch of the Lonsdale Street Traders (LST) here in Braddon. Lonsdale Street Traders is a warehouse filled with several funky stores like Box Jewellery, Unit, a Bakery, a bike shop, Lifeline, Itrip Iskip and even a hairdresser and florist to name a few. Even with the heat people packed into the warehouse to check out all the amazing stores and share in lots of food, drinks, a fashion parade, DJ Ashley Feraude playing some funky tunes and even a magician.
The trader’s were also raising money for the Messengers Program which involved buying a lucky box for $25. There were 30 major prizes and everyone being a winner. I was lucky enough to get a voucher to Pela’s and also a bike service. The money raised will help the kids from the Messengers Program with art materials, musical instruments and workshops. Well done traders it was such a great idea!
I highly recommend if you are in Canberra to check out Lonsdale Street Traders as this pop up store will be around for another 18 months.
My sad and dissapointed day.
I am very unhappy with the online store The Iconic…..I purchased last week the Thierry Lasry Sexxxy Sunglasses and was so excited to have bought the last pair! Having not received them I decided to call the Iconic to see where they were (as usually they are very fast on delivery).
why i am saying in my blog is i just love different types of sunglasses to wear.They had refunded the money into the credit card I used (my brothers) and forgot to call and advise that the purchase didn’t go through as the name on the purchase and credit card did not match (same surname…just saying). So after waiting a day to get a call back, I called them back to only get advised that they could not put the glasses back up online to repurchase..and that I had to wait 4-6 weeks to reorder the sunnies….Still don’t understand…..I bought the last pair and all of a sudden they can’t place the order again. CONFUSED!
So I went online and found a pair in US and to my surprise they are a lot cheaper….it’s disappointing as I prefer to buy in Australia but when this happens and you get sorry but have a nice day……kind of makes me sad. i have to make sure that my payment is done already and i should get these glasses only because they are the best sunglasses to cool under hot sun near beaches.
I purchase a bit off the Iconic and promote a lot of items on my blog…..I haven’t given up on them yet but I just feel if this happens they really do need to advise the customer on what’s going on…..not have the customer chasing them up.

Here is what about Monica very fashionable duo: ”We love Monica and in the last 20 years not once have worked with her. It perfectly reflects the spirit of “Women Dolce & Gabban. Her beauty – timeless. She – a real Italian “icon”. Bellucci herself as happy with her new role, moreover, that in addition to the cosmetic line, she also heads the campaign of the brand.
So looking forward to heading to Byron for the Christmas Break and have found the perfect beach dress from Country Road. This silky scoop neck dress in 100% eco-friendly cupro and features a gathered elastic waistband…..it’s the a great casual or dressy look for any occasion! I would pair this dress with these amazing (and comfortable) yellow St Tropez Holster Jellies shoes.
Thought I would share with you all the amazing shoes I received for Christmas. My beautiful cousin purchased these shoes from a little pop up store in Canberra. You can find this store and many others at Lonsdale Street Traders….she purchased these from Pela’s Studio.
I am in love and can’t wait to start wearing these funky shoes.
