Birthday Wish List

Its my birthday next week - Usually i can't think of anything i'd like as a gift.
But this year I've seen a few things im lusting after of late!
So, just incase anyone (ben, mum, anyone else who is feeling the love) is reading;
Here is a little wish list hehe :)

Honestly though - my dream 'birthday day' requires no gifts;
 A swim at the beach, a good coffee, an outing with the husband & dog + a tasty meal :)

but you know….just incase anyone needs to know….

A bottle of my favourite perfume that I'm almost out of…

This delicious nude leather 'The Good's clutch from Table Tonic

(i already have the black ones & they are the best!)
And for January they are $25 off with the code 25K

Moving away from fashion…
This is a bit of a long shot & i would be seriously spoilt if this came along…
A Vitamix - we love making smoothies & juices & i love that this bends all the pulp too
(ie all the good stuff + vitamins!)

And another (albeit a lot cheaper!) gadget
Not that i ever stick to recipes - but good to have them as a rough guide ;)

We are surrounded by some gorgeous outdoors spaces where we live & 
i always think it would be lovely to go & have picnic lunches/dinners :)

One Million!

While Australia was celebrating Australia Day something big happened…
Once Daily Chic had its 1 millionth page view! 

I have met so many wonderful people, both online & in 'real life' through this space.
I have had some great opportunities come my way, shared personal milestones like getting engaged,
married, new homes & going out on my own with my business.

I feel like the new & improved design has inspired me to post more too.

Thank you to everyone for reading & sharing it all with me along the way.

Timber in Modern Bathrooms

Im hearing more & more that clients want to incorporate timber in their bathroom.
Heres a few great examples of timber 'done well' {in my opinion!} in a bathroom.
The first image being one of my all time fav's

Back to Work - Desk Style

Back to work for 2015...
This calls for some stylish workspace inspo!

This time of the year always makes me want to dine 'alfresco'.
Casual & abundant in the fresh air!
Some inspiration for a weekend event perhaps? Have a great one whatever you are doing :)

Wedding Dress Lust

I am having major wedding dress envy over this amazing J'Anton Couture gown.
Interesting how in 3 years my tastes have changed completely.
If the budget had allowed (unlikely) I would have these guys design my dress in a heartbeat!
Check out the full wedding over at The Lane - it's to die for!

Blog Makeover

You may have noticed Once Daily Chic had had a makeover!
Its….well….a lot less pink!

And i felt it was time for a change of header - more personal!
Although i will miss the lovely Christian Chaize beach images.
Ive now got a series of them framed in my hallway at home
These images were all shot by Hannah Blackmore & styled by Peep My Styles
(as featured in Adore Magazine)

I am by no means a computer whizz, so its never going to be the fanciest blog around
but i feel that the new look is more reflective of my style these days.

I hope you enjoy the new look & i will endeavour to post a bit more :)
The name, Once Daily Chic, despite the lack of daily posts, will remain!

Wednesday Wisdom

A new years resolution of sorts….

Monday, January 5, 2015


This amazing house located on the island of Corsica is the family home of Carol Gerland, the director of communication for Zadig & Voltaire. The natural building materials blend with the rugged landscape, decoration in itself. So simple & beautiful.
I don't know about you, but i can certainly see myself spending some time by that pool!
Imagine long lazy days here…& balmy evening nights with a French Rose & BBQ seafood...
