Liza Emanuele recently launched her SS15/16 collection ‘Blue Sky’ in-store along side her new ‘roomie’ Rosie of Regina sole Queen, hosted by Filip Odzak, it was a great night of fashion and industry appreciation.
Liza celebrated the launch of her new collection by inviting a panel of social media queens, including Kelly Noble of Glam Adelaide, Sonia of Sonia Styling and Jenni of Styling Curvy to talk all about the power of social media today and how it connects people with other people and products.
The Blue Sky collection features a range of styles, cuts, colours and patterns that would suit all body shapes and sizes as well as will get you excited for the warmer months. I highly recommend checking out Liza’s new collection!

Chinatown, Adelaide is a mecca for tasty, wholesome food, from the Central Markets to the endless alleyways filled with hidden gems, there’s definitely going to be something to suit everyone’s tastebuds. Now that I work just down the road from Chinatown, it has become my daily lunch destination, so I thought I would share with you a few places that I have been loving, both sweet and savoury!
Located within the arcade is a little whole-in-the-wall bakery called; Nanna Hot Bake, this little shop has been a favourite of my families for years, and never fails to deliver the most soft, fresh, tastiest buns filled with various fillings from chilli anchovies to pork and even coconut. It’s a great place to visit for a snack before embarking on your market shopping.
PappaRich is fairly new to Adelaide, but for at least a month or two after opening their doors, there was always a line of hungry people waiting to get their hands on their delicious Malaysian offerings. I have to admit I was one of those hungry people waiting in line for at least 20 mintues, but it was definitely worth it. Fast and friendly service just adds to the experience, I can’t get enough of the place!
Chinatown Cafe is another major fave lunch spot for me and many others, just going from the busyness of their lunchtime service. You’re lucky to get a table or even find a place to stand inside. Their food is so yummy and the portions are not stingy at all, also the condiments, incuding garlic chilli, hot chilli, and soy sauce just finish of the meal perfectly…just thinking about it makes me salivate!
And to finish of we must have dessert! St Louis is my favourite dessert place around Chinatown and my favourite waffle place ever! Their selection is huge and each dessert is served so beautifully. It’s a cozy little place, great for dessert or after dinner tea/coffee with friends. My waffle consumption amount has grown hugely since I was introduced to the place, but I just can’t help myself!
Here are few photos to get you salivating also!
The Gracious Life has had a makeover! Who doesn’t love a good makeover right!
I started The Gracious Life as a lifestyle consulting and coaching service, as well as a space to share my life with you all through a blog. I felt as though the site needed a makeover because I wanted to highlight the lifestyle coaching service being offered as it is my passion in life to help inspire and motivate people to achieve their goals, and create their own ‘Gracious Life’.
For the makeover, I decided to have photo’s taken of myself and my space. I created a space that inspires and motivates me to do what I do. For the shoot I wore a beautiful white shirt with black detailing, it was sent to me from UK company; Hawes and Curtis. It is an impeccably made shirt. I am wearing a UK size 10 slim fit. Not only does it fit perfectly but it also fits with my new branding perfectly, being all white with black detailing.
Below are some ‘behind the scenes’ photos of the shoot. All photos were taken by my friend and fellow blogger Susan from Fashion Adventurer.
