So quick intro as your new Friday Blogging sensation. I am Laura Kate and I am here to share with you EVERYTHING! I truly believe that there is fasinating beauty to be found in every courner of society – so lets find it together.

So for my very first adverture into the blogging world I want to

Recently my very good friend introduced me to an amazing Beligium music festival called “TOMORROWLAND”. For those of you who know of what I speak I know you probably had a little heart flutter, for those who don’t you soon will!

The festival takes place over a course of 3 days and is filled with the most amazing & deverse range of musical sensations. The true beauty of this festival are most definetly the stage setups. This year showcased an amazing ‘Alice in Wonderland’ style stage which was truly breathtaking.

Another thing that excites me to the core regarding this festival is the astonishing fashion! The thing I truly love about a music festival is that anything goes. It is a time to run in the fields & if you want to wear a crazy flower crown you wear it with pride!

If the pictures from Tomorrow Land are anything to go off this summer festival season in australia is going to be bright , vibrant & riduculously boarder line – in a good way of course.

Spring Sensations

Have some fun with your makeup this coming spring. There's nothing like a splash of colour to brighten your look. This Spring we'll see some beautiful pink lip shades, rouge red lip colours, futuristic shimmer shadows, timeless natural and nude tones and the all time favourite smokey eyes with fresh liner. Harper's Bazaar recommends pairing vintage with modern looks to make a unique statement.

 Bright Pink Lips - Try layering your lips with Vivid Lips Lipstick and Lustre Lips Lipgloss. Pair these beautiful lips with nude eyes and a swish of mascara.

  The Nude and Natural Look - Smooth over some bronzer on your cheeks over your foundation and accentuate your brows with Stefan Professional Brow Sculpt. Keep in the nude theme with our Nudie Vivid Lips Lipstick.

 Rouge Red - Nothing beats a red lip - perfect for evening wear. As a base, use the Stefan Professional Photo Primer and then Photo Foundation. Pucker up with Stefan Professional Vivid lips in Rich and line your lids with Stefan Professional Liquid Eyes Eyeliner.

Tangerine Tango - for the colour obsessed

While the neon trend still makes it's mark, we here, at the office, are obsessed with fluro printing and packaging. 
Being a designer, I am naturally obsessed with bright colours, so, you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across one of the coolest things ever...


It's something called 'Pantone Institute'. 
For those of you who don't know what a pantone is, it's a colour value and matching system.

Annually the Pantone Institute declares a particular color "Color of the Year". Twice a year the company hosts, in a European capital, a secret meeting of representatives from various nations' color standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate, they choose a color for the following year; for example, the color for summer 2013 was chosen in London in the spring of 2012. The color purportedly connects with the zeitgeist; for example the press release declaring Honeysuckle the color of 2011 said "In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues." The results of the meeting are published in Pantone View, which fashion designers, florists, and many other consumer-oriented companies purchase to help guide their designs and planning for future products.

So the colour of 2012 is....


I LOVE orange so I am really really happy about this choice!

Everything from clothing to stationary to homewares is orange, orange, orange!Check out all the great stuff that is coming out in this shade...

Tailor made...

I was so excited to wake up this morning and feel the warmer weather! Not because that means I can go to the beach soon or workout in the morning and be able to feel my legs, but because I could rock my new tailored Jaguar shorts to work!

I have noticed that I have started quite the collection of tailored shorts in the past few months. They are such a great staple for all seasons because you can wear them with stockings or be brave and bare skin, wear them to work or vamp up a weekend outfit, and be formal or casual.

Textured, leather, patterned or plain - try working a pair of tailored shorts into your work week or weekend outfits!

Apologies to my colleages that my tan hasn't quite come at the same time as I have decided to expose my legs! ( I am getting a tan this weekend don't worry)

Have a great day!
