Christmas is often a time of year where you’re so crazy busy putting up the tree, buying gifts and planning the Christmas menu that you forget about yourself. Well guess what? Santa Claus is coming to town early this year especially for YOU as Look Feel Be and Absolute Amy have teamed up to offer one very lucky reader a $500 shopping spree at Look Feel Be!
Delivery! We love receiving parcels in our house, my daughter gets so excited whenever she hears the bell ring and this time, the delivery was for her.
An exciting new store has arrived on our sunny shores. Taka Wear Australia is located at the Colonnade, Subiaco and stocks luxurious resort wear that’s comfortable enough to wear to the beach and glamorous enough to wear for cocktails afterwards. It’s the kind of casual-glamour that Turkish owner Tania Eskinazi exudes, that effortless ‘I just threw this on’ look which could belong in the pages of a glossy magazine.

I just adore candles, for me they are an everyday luxury and I burn one every morning to make my home smell delicious, and again every evening as a way to wind down and relax. (I’ve written previous posts about candles here, here and here – I told you I love them!)

The lucky winner of the Couture Perth portrait session giveaway is…. Carolyn Fitton!! Please contact me to arrange your prize.
Thank you SO much to everyone who entered!
Recently I was invited to have a portrait session with the lovely Jen of Couture Perth. Jen is one of those people who you meet and instantly like; she is warm and friendly and immediately puts you at ease. It’s no wonder she’s such a fantastic photographer.
Emma of Milla Make Up painted my face and did my hair for the shoot – it was such a perfect way to relax. I was surprised to find out that Emma was a mum of three children (I had guessed she was about 25) and we had great fun chatting about beauty products, make up and of course, our kids.
The photo shoot was lots of fun, with Jen playing some great background music and even turning it up at one stage when a favourite song of mine was playing. All in all, it was such a wonderful experience where I felt very pampered and just a little bit like a rock star.
When I received the images, I was blown away – they were incredible and I thought they really captured ‘me’. Like most women I’ve always been very critical of myself in photos (unless I’ve had a glass of champagne, and then of course I’m fabulous!) and so to have pictures of myself that I love is just amazing.
I believe that every woman should have amazing photos of themselves and to feel as special and fabulous as I did having my couture portrait session. These sessions would make a beautiful gift for that special someone, and you could even take your mum / sister / friend along with you for a day of fun with the end result being beautiful photos that you can treasure forever.
We are giving away a portrait session with Couture Perth valued at $190 to one very lucky reader! You will receive;
- A couture portrait session for one person to the value of $190
- Professional hair and make up
- Five high resolution digital images, for you to print at your leisure
- A private web gallery of your portrait session
To enter, all you have to do is:
1) Head on over to Couture Perth on Facebook and ‘like’ their page
2) Subscribe to Absolute Amy or follow me on Twitter here.
3) In the comment section below, tell us in 25 words or less why you would love to win a couture portrait session
The competition closes at midnight WST on Thursday 6th September, 2012 and the winner will be announced on Friday 7th September. Please see T & C’s below.
Good luck lovelies!!

The session will take place at Jen’s home studio in Perth, so you will need to either be in Perth or able to travel to Perth. The shoot will need to be scheduled mid week. As Jen is a natural light photographer, mornings at around 10am are an ideal time to start. This prize is not redeemable for cash. The gift certificate for the portrait session is valid for six months from the date of issue.
With winter well and truly upon us, it can be tricky finding fun things to do with the family. One of our favourite family outings is heading to the park and letting Little Miss run around, climb, slide and explore, finishing off with a big swing. It’s always a shame when the cold, wet weather hits and we have to say goodbye to our afternoons enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
With winter family outings in mind, 20th Century Fox have tickets to the Perth premiere of Ice Age 4: Continental Drift 3D up for grabs. There are 4 family passes available, each pass admits 4 people.
The premiere is on Sunday June 24 at Event Cinemas Innaloo. It kicks off at 10am with face painting, snow cones, pirates and balloon twisting – loads of fun for your little treasures! The film starts at 10.30am.
To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below and let me know what your favourite family outing is in 35 words or less.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday June 20 12pm WST and tickets will be e-mailed to the lucky families.
Good luck lovelies!
Please Note: This event is open only to those that can make it to Event Cinemas Innaloo, WA on Sunday June 24. Apologies to readers living in regional WA and interstate.
