About Me

I am a wife and mummy to a happy and funny Little Miss.  I’m a big fan of coffee, cupcakes and high tea.  I adore fashion and style, and enjoy finding ways to make everyday outfits colourful and fun.  I love finding beautiful things, whether it’s a gorgeous candle for the house or a fab piece of jewellery.

I’m crazy about beauty products and am on an eternal quest to find the perfect lipstick / nail polish / foundation / serum / moisturiser etc (the list actually is endless!).

I am a shoe collector and in my previous life as a flight attendant I wore sky high shoes every day.  Now that I am a mummy, flats are far more practical but I still love to pull out a pair of killer heels on the odd occasion.

My hubby (Channel 7 Sports Presenter and AFL Commentator, Basil Zempilas) is away working most weekends which means my daughter and I head out to explore local cafes, parks, markets and shops.

Passionate about charity work, I volunteer for Look Good Feel Better, a program to help people deal with the appearance related side effects of cancer treatment.

I’m also honoured to be a Telethon Adventurers Ambassador, together we can all work towards a cancer free future for our children.

I am new to this blogging thing, but am going to share some of my favourite things with you and maybe you can share something right back, as I really enjoy hearing what other people are loving in their life.

So welcome to Absolute Amy, I hope you’ll love it here!

Myer Perth VIP Evening

After dodging rain drops and puddles while zipping through Perths CBD, I arrived at Myer feeling slightly windswept but oh so excited for an evening of friends, designers, fashion and fun.

The floral arrangements were simply stunning and helped to set the spring time mood despite the stormy, wintery weather outside.

Resident Myer stylist Andrea and blogger at And Andrea was rocking Sass & Bide. She has been a total standout during Perth Fashion Festival with her colourful and clever fashion choices.  She also happens to be one of the loveliest, most genuine people you’ll ever meet. (Spot the gorgeous Sarah in the left of the background. I loved her very chic outfit.)

One of my most fabulous long time friends Carol was a guest at the event and met her favourite designer Wayne Cooper.  She was just a little bit excited and managed to tell him ‘I’m a big fan!’.

Gorgeous models ready to hit the stage wearing Wayne Cooper and Aurelio Costarella.

Aurelio Costarella talks fashion magic with guests, he told me he loves these kinds of events where he gets to meet people and have a chat.

I loved Sammi’s gorgeous black dress and lime neon bag, we got chatting and I discovered she was a photographer and a mum of two who was enjoying a rare night out.

Keely looked simply sensational in Sass & Bide, I loved her matching neon iPhone cover and triangle bag. And that hair and those lips! Super swoon!

Special guest Kris Smith was a big hit with the ladies, and was only too happy to pose for photos with a long line of eager fans.

Andrea and I decided to have some fun and had a mini photo session during the event, Andrea was loving the back detailing on my Zhivago dress and I have to confess… I was loving it too!
