Stephanie and I ventured into the unknown and experimented by getting spray tans for our upcoming swimwear photoshoot. It was a lot of fun to do share the experience with my sister who was travelling interstate. Check out what we got up to...   ... [ Discover More ]

Mamak

Mamak_danimezza_2011-1

Last Sunday our little family ventured out to Chatswood for dinner as part of my involvement with Malaysian Kitchen Australia. I'd read a lot of great reviews about Mamak in Chatswood (also in Sydney CBD) and it didn't disappoint. I also took the opportunity to spoil my very talented web designers Liz & Jarod, I think they deserve it don't you! The menu was quite limited compared to other Malaysian restaurants I'd visited but that meant it didn't take long to figure out what to order and ... [ Discover More ]

Deadly Treadly

 I'm renting this bad boy from a friend. They forked out $1k+, used it for 2 months and then revamped it by turning it into a very unattractive clothes hanger and dust catcher. I could see something similar happening to me so I never bought one, I went to the gym and used their fancy ones instead. Winter came around and I got lazy, I made excuses, I blamed the baby and paid for gym membership without having gone for 5 months. Last week I canceled my gym membership. This week I'm renting a ...

Tethered

80d2fde0b42147dab5ec420b100434a3_7

Aidan started Daycare or "School" as we call it. It's not the end of the world but I feel nervous due to all the irrational fears swelling around in the pit of my stomach. I wanted him home, to be cared for in his safe place, I place where I wouldn't have to worry but having a nanny didn't work out, mostly because it's extremely expensive so now we're trying Daycare. He only goes one day a week, giving me a day to write or run errands and giving him a place to make new friends, develop his ...

Vanity Storage

Draws_danimezza_2011-8

A few months ago I was stumbling around Officeworks eyeing off all the pretty stationery and looking for storage for my desk. I was determined to conquer the mess that constantly invaded it and I was sure a simple storage solution would be the answer... I was right. Enter the Keji 5 Draw Storage Organiser $16.99. I love clear acrylic, it held lots of paper and was under $20 so I was sold. Straight away my desk became more manageable, papers never got lost and everything looks pretty... but one ...

Naturalizer – Love Your Shoes

naturalizer_danimezza_2011-1

A few weeks ago I got an invitation to a PR event which included an afternoon talking about Naturalizer shoes as well as lunch at one of Sydney's newest venues, "Food Society"... how could I refuse!  It's a stone throw away from the city, I walked there from Town Hall after a spot of window shopping. It has a very french provincial theme to it with rustic touches, sensuous textiles and a herb enriched aroma. Needless to say I want to go back. There were so many trinkets and features I wanted ...

Twitter Junkie

Twitter-Syndication

For the past week I've been conducting an experiment... I've spent less time on twitter. You may not think this is ground breaking but it has been for me. I love twitter. I check it when I get up in the morning, during breakfast, at the park, in the car, on the train, before bed and sometimes, if I wake up during the night... I'll check it again. It's a little pocket of the internet where my friends live 24/7. People who I like and admire and some who I just like to keep tabs on. I like having ... [ Discover More ]

Sunny Sisters

This has been the longest week of my life, so much has happened in a very short space of time. This weekend though I'm taking it easy. My sister has flown into town and we all drove to Soldiers Point in Nelsons Bay to spend a little time with family. My Dad turns 50 in the next couple of days and we have a big party planned on the marina with friends and family travelling in for the occasion. Today though, my sister and I spent the afternoon on Dad's pride and joy "Rogue Wave". This is me ... [ Discover More ]

ORLY Nailtrition Giveaway

nailtrition_danimezza_2011-1

I have weak nails. They're the kind that flake and break for no particular reason at all so when ORLY emailed me about their new nail polish, essentially a treatment for nails just like mine I was game to try it and thought you might be too. Nailtrition by ORLY is applied daily for two weeks. At the end of each week you peel off the layers of nail polish and re apply. The polish leaves your nails a pearly pink shade, I'd be happy to wear it without the added benefits, it's a bonus they're ... [ Discover More ]

Ring My Bella Giveaway

I'm a perfume addict. There, I said it. I long for the change in season, it's how I justify changing my fragrance and investing in new ones. Now that spring is here magazines have been luring me with their glossy full page, scented advertisements. You'll find me rubbing my wrists furiously against the paper, desperately trying to release the scent embedded within the pages... oh yeah, I love perfume. So when Benefit Cosmetics sent me their newest floral scent "Ring My Bella" in their cute ... [ Discover More ]

Fresh New Look

As I mentioned in a previous post, I've been working with Jarod & Liz Productions for several weeks designing a brand new website... Ta Da! I'm so proud of our efforts, it really feels like Danimezza.com is finally the way I envisaged it to be. Easier navigation, cool features and a better explanation overall about who I am, what I've done and where I want to go. Focusing on goals has helped immensely and I'm so excited about where this new platform will take me. I'd like to thank ... [ Discover More ]

Fashionably Appreciative

Last night as I was coming home on the train I didn't have any wifi, my phone battery had died and I had no magazines... so I wrote to you all on my ipad. I don't normally blog on the go like this but I wanted to share a few raw feelings with you... I'm sitting on the train, it's 10:30 at night I've just finished swishing my way through Vouge's Fashion Night Out and I'm wrecked. Not in a good kind of way either. The kind where all I want to do is curl up in a hot bath and fall asleep cuddled ... [ Discover More ]

Gisela Ramirez Spring Sale

50-off-sale

After blogging about the Gisela Ramirez runway show a couple of weeks ago, Gisela and I got to talking and we discussed the possibility of me shooting her entire collection. Last Saturday I did just that and I (but most importantly Gisela) couldn't be more pleased with the result. To celebrate her lines new look she's just launched a Spring Sale with 50% off. Discount code: SPRING2011  These are just some of the images that I took with more being published in the next few days. I'm not a ... [ Discover More ]

High Tea and The Help

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang Australia. When you get an email inviting you to a private screening of the much anticipated movie "The Help" at Hoyts Cinema in Moore Park followed by a scrumptious High Tea at The Winery with Sarah Oakes and Sarah Wilson... you go. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday in my opinion, especially as I got to sit with one of my favourite ladies, Chantelle from FatMumSlim. The movie really should have been sponsored by Kleenex because I cried pretty much ... [ Discover More ]
