LB Family: What to give a mama-to-be?

These past few months it seems like lots of friends, new, old and former, are having babies, and I’ve been wondering what on earth do you buy a mama-to-be, without going overboard on the pink and blue? So here’s a list of things my new mama friends and I think every mama-to-be/new mama...

LB Style: Working a Black-Tie Event

So in my day job I work as a Communications and Events Officer and at the end of the month it’s our 50th Anniversary. We’re holding a whole weekend of events, one of which is a black-tie gala ball at the Convention Centre. My problem is this: it’s a black-tie event but I’m...

LB Style: What I should have worn in Sydney

Do you ever go on holiday and then wish you’d packed something entirely different? Me too! And that was me last weekend in Sydney. If you want to know what I actually packed, you can find that post here. That’s not to say that what I did wear wasn’t okay. It was fine. I...

LB Travel: 3 Days in Sydney – Take Two

Let me just say first off, that 3 days in Sydney isn’t enough. Let me also say this. Do not stay in the CBD if you’re there for the weekend – but more about that later. So where did we go and where would we recommend? ...

3 Days in Sydney

It’s well-known amongst those who know me in real life that I’m an over-packer. I am the girl, after all, that took at least 2 outfits a day for a four day long weekend to Paris. In my defence, it’s PARIS! So, having 7kg and a mere carry on for a 3 day trip to Sydney is my version...

Buying A Home

Like most people of our generation, buying a home is the biggest difficulty. You don’t really want to give up too much on location but then you don’t really want to buy a shoebox that you’ll outgrow in five seconds flat either. And then there’s the whole children aspect to...

LB Travel: 3 Days in Sydney

So this coming weekend is our wedding anniversary and we’re off to Sydney. I’m ashamed to admit this but in the nearly 19 months we’ve lived down under, we’ve yet to leave QLD (because Byron doesn’t count!)! I know. Shocking. But we’re putting it right this...

LB Style: Winter

I don’t know about you but this Antarctic blast has pretty much rendered most of my wardrobe useless this past week or so. Winter in Queensland usually involves throwing a jumper on over your favourite summer outfits and maybe adding a pair of ankle boots! This week, however, I’ve been...

The Insider Guide to: Florence and Tuscany

Hello Friends! We have missed you this past two weeks! But finally, we are back! So let’s pick up where we left off shall we? This week, we’re in Florence! You remember how I’ve said before that I swear I was Italian in a previous life? Well, if this is the case, then I was...

We Interrupt This Programme…

Firstly Happy Wednesday Friends! We hope you’re having a lovely week wherever you may be. Secondly, as you may have seen on Facebook or Instagram, we’re currently in the process of packing/moving house which means that our normal schedule will be a bit all over the place for the rest of...

LB Style: Rome

Whenever you search Pinterest for Italian or Rome Style, the first thing that comes up is lots of very glamorous women in stiletto heels. And I have absolutely no idea how they do it! The Rome I know and love is full of little alleyways and cobbled, uneven streets. So rather than show you the high...
