An ache that never goes away

Last week Kelly over at A Life Less Frantic was talking about brothers and sisters and shared a post that was shared on Mama Mia - to take care on the roads - back in 2012 on how she lost her brother to a care accident. Which ran true to me as I too have lost someone very near and dear to me and my family, whilst holidaying in Canada.

mumma styling CHRISTMAS DAY

Most of us like to dress up a little as we gather together with family and friends to celebrate Christmas Day. Just because you are a mother to young children this does not mean that you should be complacent in the way you dress. I have styled a white shirt dress from Country Road 3 ways for you to consider.

notes from the week

This week has been an incredibly sad and emotional one.  The loss of two lives and the traumatic event for all those who were held hostage. A time for peace, love and kindness, like all Sydney siders have shown with the outpouring of grief laid out for us all to see in Martin Place. Sydney is fragile as is the whole country this floral tribute in Martin Place is how we all unite together today, always and forever. Christmas is going to be fragile for those families of the hostages and the ones who lost their lives, Katrina and Tori, may you both Rest In Peace and we will be forever grateful for your heroism. #loveeachother

This week was relatively quiet for us at the Style On V headquarters with my eldest going to work everyday, shopping and lunching together yesterday before another shift at her beloved childcare centre. Miss R said to me that 'it does not feel like work'. This made me so happy with the realisation that came about, that she is so lucky to have found a job that she loves to go to everyday. 

Blessings to each and everyone of you. V xx

swimwear for summer MISSONI FOR TARGET

Last week I walked into Target and there right before my eyes staring back at me was a fabulous Missoni print. I looked at two styles  and took the plunge to try the tankini along with the kaftan. I have been on the lookout for a new swimsuit for a month or so. When the Missoni for Target range launched I looked but could not see, if that makes sense, it was scattered everywhere, so this time it was meant to be.
