Part 2 in my out of the blue series features the shades of blue we see in our natural environment, as opposed to objects. It’s natures way off inspiring us to try new colour combinations when we style ourselves or our homes and offices.
I took these shots on my old iPhone 3 on a recent trip to Sydney. Somehow I managed to capture the right moment at the right time each time. It was a stunning day in Bondi as we started our walk from Tamarama ‘Glamarama’ beach to Bondi, one of the first nice days Sydney had seen for some time. As you can see, it brought out the masses.
It’s hard for me to pick a favourite from these shots because I love them all for different reasons. If I had to though, it would be the blue and orange push bike. Not only is it the coolest bike ever, its a great colour combo. Which is your favourite?
It’s no big secret that I love the colour blue… In all shades, shapes and sizes… in clothing, shoes, accessories, objects, nature… Pretty much in anything and everything. I even barrack for Carlton ‘The Blues’ in the AFL.
Why do I love blue so much? Who knows! I like to think that it’s because the many shades of blue remind me of the sky and the sea… vast, volatile, opportunistic and calming.
Here’s a recap of some of my blue moments from Instagram. Which is your favourite?

As some of you would know, I’m a little bit in love with Instagram.
For those of you not familiar with Instagram, it’s a fun way to share photos from your iPhone with a wider social network. It also has great photo filters, like buttons and commenting to make it interactive. Here are a few of my fave pics from the couple of months.
“There is an air of something very classic and French yet the mentality is rock and roll, which speaks to me.” says Erin Wasson of French label, Zadig & Voltaire in this week’s Editors Picks on Net-A-Porter.
Make sure you check out the superbly relaxed Erin Wasson for Zadig & Voltaire capsule collection on Net-A-Porter, including a video of the shoot.

There is nothing that is not fabulous about Emmy Rossum‘s cover and appearance in Genlux (a luxury magazine created for the affluent Southern Californian woman). She reminds me of one of Alexandre Dumas’ heroines from the 17th century. Beautiful, tragic and wanting.
I also love that she is wearing Australia’s own, Samantha Wills Black Star ring, available now for $259. So stunning that it can be worn for special occasions for years to come!
