Try before you buy….

There aren’t too many things that annoy us about shopping, but when we buy lovely goodies online, rip open the packaging only to find that our shiny new purchases don’t look quite the same as they did on the models, there are cries of boo hiss!

Wouldn’t it be perfect to be able to check what something looks like in a mirror before you click on the shopping cart? Well, problem solved! Check out Boutique Jewellery, those clever, clever people not only stock a beautiful range of Australian designed jewellery and offer free nationwide shipping, BUT they also have a virtual mirror! Select a necklace or pair of earrings you love and see how hot you look before buying. Genius! We love it!

Give your wardrobe a Spring Clean!

Is your wardrobe is starting to resemble the racks in Vinnie’s?  Are you wearing the same outfits day in, day out even though the closet is full to burst…. then it’s time for a clear out!

Spring is finally here and it’s a great excuse to give your wardrobe a refresh and brighten up your look.  So, plan some ‘you’ time and follow Ruby Slipper’s simple guide for rejuvenating your wardrobe:


  • Pack up winter clothes into air tight containers and store them away.
  • Mend damaged items or get rid of them.
  • If clothes don’t fit you anymore, give them to charity. We hear lots of people saying…’when I lose weight or when I put weight back on, I’ll need these again’.  Mmm, that might be the case, but if they don’t fit you now, then get them out of your cupboard space!
  • Don’t just throw items out because you haven’t warn them for a while, try them on and see what they look like. You might spark a comeback!
  • Items looking faded and worn – either dye them or throw them.

If the clear out job is too big or you don’t know what looks good and what doesn’t, drop us a line and we can organise a ‘wardrobe refresh’ session.
