THE PARTY SEASON STYLE EDIT

The holiday season is near and so are the end of year celebrations. I would love if you could join me here as I take you through different styling by taking colour off the 2015 runways to inspire  your styling for the party season. Here is a simple and chic style with and angled pencil skirt and top. I am just loving the floral print adding a pop of blue with the clutch to enhance the colours in the outfit. Keeping makeup natural with a nude lip and pink cheek stain.

NESPRESSO FRAPPE

At this very moment in Sydney town the temperature is 40+ and thought I would share my Nespresso frappe recipe.  A delicious way to keep cool.



1/2 cup of your favourite nespresso
1 cup of ice cubes or more if you like 
I cup milk
2 scoops vanilla icecream
Sugar to taste

Run coffee through Nespresso machine and add to blender over the ice, add all other ingredients and blend. I actually made double quantity to have earlier and placed the extra in the freezer to have later. 
freezing it for a few hours helps solidify the outside to more of a frappe texture. 

So refreshing!

Do you have a special frappe recipe that you make on those extra hot days?

You can never go wrong with classic navy and white or black and white.
