Emma and Roe Stack Rings

Have you seen the new Michael Hill adverts? They're pretty awesome!  love that a huge international company like that are getting quite gritty.

I LOVE the story of TZIPORAHWatch this incredibly moving and heart breaking video about the loss of her first love. (I'm also a sucker for the older style icons of New York, and she is definitely one of them!)

Speaking of older women and style, my sister and I bought mum this amazing amethyst ring for her birthday:

On that note; I was asked to pick out my favourite recommendations form a sub Michael Hill brand Emma and Roe. This is a slightly cheaper range aimed at a younger crowd. 
I'm STILL into stacking and see they have a great selection. These rings are also around the $50- $115 mark - which is well choice for a young person's budget like myself (also, being stirling silver they won't turn your fingers green).

Below are my 4 favourites to get-a-stacking with:

1. Patterned Black Cubic Zirconia stacking ring 

4. (My absolute favourite) Black & White Cubic Zirconia stack ring

Shirley Manson wrote a kickass open letter to Kanye West

Beck Vs Beyonce 
By now you probably have heard that Kanye West, yet again, stormed the stage at the Grammys demanding that Beyonce should have won. This time the rant happened off stage when during an interview, busted out such gems as "...If they want real artists to come back they need to stop playing with us" and "Beck needs to respect artistry and give his Grammy to Beyonce". Firstly, are you even serious Mr. West? Regardless of who anyone is a fan of more, who the HELL is Kanye West to decide who should have won. I could fill this blog post with me ranting about how much I dislike Kanye, butI'll end it there and give you all a link to watch that sums up what happened pretty well.

The thing that REALLY caught my eye, however, was the awesome open letter Shirley Manson of Alt band Garbage wrote West:

Dear Kanye West,
It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry.
You disrespect your own remarkable talents and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like BECK.
You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.
In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.
Grow up and stop throwing your toys around.
You are making yourself look like a complete twat.
Ps.I am pretty certain Beyonce doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she’s got everything covered perfectly well on her own.
Oh Shirley Mason, you so perfect. 
On that note, I thought we could take a moment and look at how truly awesome and stylish Miss Manson is.

Dolphin Street, Queensland - How to wear a Maxi Dress

I was lucky enough to spend just over a week in Queensland. Being the middle of summer, it was freaken' HOT. I did however, in-between melting, manage to shop. And we all know that I love to shop.

I'm a big fan on Maxi dresses this season so below I have teamed it with one of my absolute FAVOURITE Lonely Lingerie bras. When I'm wearing something that's quite simple I like to add detail with the accessories, that's where these great bras come in handy.

Firstly, check out this BEAUTIFUL beach I gots to chill at called Kings Beach on the Sunshine Coast.

Now back to the dress.... I'm a sucker for a bold floral print. 

Dress: Forever 21
Bra: Lonely Lingeri
