SJM Photography > some of my previous work...

This was a test shoot I put together with some local Melbourne models for up and coming designers at the Melbourne School of Fashion. MUA: Kerry Tseros, Hair Stylist: Teressa Au, models: Katie, Bree Wells & Laree Fahy. Such a gorgeous and talented group of people.


These shots were for personal portfolios and family shoots. 


She's got the moves like Jagger!

GMJ - #girlcrush

Georgia May Jagger >  the youngest daughter of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger. Only 5'7", this British beauty  is enchanting the fashion and beauty worlds. Not just a pretty face, Georgia is also an aspiring photographer. She is SO hot right now. 

The end. Her beauty speaks for itself!

Cosmo are certainly not shy about acknowledging their age, and nor should they be! Celebrating 40 fabulous years of all-things girlie. I'm just a little bit (BIG BIT) jealous of my boss (the spunky red-head, Caterina Di Biase) who has been enjoying the company of these Chadwick beauties all day at Stokehouse, Melbourne > *while some of us crunch numbers back at the office!*

LOVE MY BODY does Bali!


Bali Health Retreat & Boot Camp!

I am so excited I had to share this with you all. My AMAZING personal trainer and friend, Hayley Roper, is running the first Love My Body Health Retreat & Boot Camp in Bali! Ladies - this chick will whip your bee-hind and get you into shape toot-sweet! AND... what could be better than an a girls only boot camp in a tropical location? Not to mention all the cheeky camp fire stories that will be had about those things we call 'men'! This is such an exciting opportunity and places are limited.   

The Love My Body/Sharing Bali retreat is designed to help you share a taste of Bali life in a perfect tranquil environment, increase your fitness, lose weight and to go home with the tools to stay motivated and with new-found friends.

 DATE: 25th - 31st August 2013
Cost is only $1800 per person, plus flights

The week will be intense, and at times daunting, but with the support and motivation from the rest of your group and Hayley your leader you will get through the week and go home with the tools and the desire to maintain an even fitter and healthier lifestyle and the motivation to become an even better version of your former self. There will also be massages and down time to fuel your recovery and give you some well-deserved relaxation.

This retreat will not only focus on nutrition and exercise but also team building, talking and breaking down the barriers of what stops you from achieving your goals in everyday life. We aim to break down these barriers before you leave and send you home feeling positive excited and refreshed.

Ask questions, talk to people and look within – you will find the answers you need.

New hair, new make-up, new clothes - what a week!


I will just come out and say it, this week has been a selfish one! In my defence, I did start a new job. So, any pampering and credit card interest that was accumulated, was well deserved. And I'm sticking to that story!

Below are my cheeky purchases and beauty treatments:

BEAUTY TREATMENTS: shellac fingers nails, pedicure and foot massage, eyebrow and eyelash tint and shape, fashion foils and balayage re-fresh at Rokk Ebony, South Melbourne. 

FASHION FINDS: asos floral jersey dress, asos pink faux snakeskin belt and Cameo the Label tweed and leather jacket.

TOTES, awesome > three of my faves.


I have put together my own (pricey!) tote wishlist > It includes a little Prada, we all need at least one of these. A gorgeous pale blue Tohni Bekka and a classic cream, structured Alexandwer Wang tote with buckles. Love, love, love. Now, to earn the money so I can afford them ;)

WHAT'S IN MY BEAUTY BAG - Easter weekend special

My Easter beauty favourites >
featuring Inglot, Ellis Faas & By Terry

Inglot AMC Cream Concealer 67, $22 - this is the ONLY concealer I will use. It has a dewy finish and is extremely nourishing and long-wearing. This concealer is available to order online and in-store (Chadstone, Southland, CBD). 

Inglot Sleeks Cream lip gloss, $22 (Rouge a Levres) - if you grew up loving (and possibly eating!) Lipsmacker as a teen like me, then you will love this gloss! It smells and tastes amazing! On a serious note, in true Inglot style, this range delivers an amazing colour selection - it does not disappoint. 

Ellis Faas Skin Veil $93 (Mecca) - I have only recently discovered this foundation, and boy, have I hit the jackpot! Especially if you tend towards dry skin, finding an oil-free dewy foundation is super important. I also wanted one that is long-wearing and hydrating throughout the day (in an artificially heated/cooled office!). This is available online and in-store at Mecca Cosmetica stores. 

By Terry Hydra-Bronzing Tinted Serum $130 - O-M-G, this serum is amazing (and you know I mean it as I just pulled out an 'OMG'!). After returning from my beauty internship with the Grazia magazine UK team, I heard nothing but good things about By Terry products. This serum is silky and is ideal for mixing into your foundation for that extra all-day bronzing glow. It is pricey, so only use a tiny squeeze. Mecca are fantastic and offer a trial take home pack, so try this if you are not 100% about spending the money. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback by emailing me @


WHAT I'M WEARING > ASOS silk floral shirt, vintage jewellery & Mecca Cosmetica make-up


ASOS silk floral shirt, vintage gold necklace (I bought this at Red Hill Market - designer unknown), South Melbourne Rokk Ebony hair (by senior colourist, Matt Davis) & Mecca Cosmetica make-up - Ellis Faas foundation, Nars Orgasm cheeks & By Terry bronzer. 


Some LV love on my birthday #spoilt

There's nothing quite like some LV love on your birthday! Thank you to the Collins St & Chadstone Louis Vuitton stores xxx

GET THE LOOK > tweed & leather for autumn/winter 13

Here is a pic of my naughty Easter purchase over the weekend - I couldn't resist! In my defence (to the hubby) I spotted a stunning grey tweed jacket on my style icon, Miranda Kerr and HAD to have that look! My belief is, if you can argue your case, then you can spend the money ;)

I purchased this jacket at Chadstone David Jones, however, I have also seen it online (The Fashion Bunker, The Iconic).

One of Melbourne's hidden treasures!

 < Tyranny of Distance >

Who knew a girlie catch-up with my high school girlfriend this weekend would unveil this hidden treasure! Tyranny of Distance is located in the heart of one of Melbourne's many illustrious food and shopping precincts, Union Street, Windsor. This quirky cafe showcases a gallery of recycled parts and artisan labour, from the tables to the table settings. Their signature flat-bread (with my fave poached eggs, spinach & avacado) did not disappoint! The TOD kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features fresh, locally sourced produce - it is the ultimate Melbourne experience. 

Address: 140 Union Street, Windsor, Melbourne. A 1 minute walk from Windsor train station and Chapel Street trams.

It was a week of pink, haute couture & all things girlie!

One of my fave images of Miranda Kerr pinned to my "girl crush" board this week was the Vogue UK photo shoot with baby Flynn - I love the serene artistry of this photograph. 

The next image I pinned to my "she is, sarah jane" board was a beautiful lace Novias de Espana wedding dress from the 2012 collection - if i could have my time again, I would love to wear something this daring! 

The last image I pinned this week was an amazing photograph by Tina Patni for Amato haute couture - it's very Marie Antoinette-esque! I love this image.
