I am sitting here on Wednesday night with the beautiful scent of roses in the air, sipping on peach & ginger tea, and finishing off my latest post on shoe designer Lauren Marinis (coming tomorrow). It’s taken a little longer than expected, as I’ve recently started a new job, and have been keeping myself busy learning the ropes, but it is finally done and ready to post on the blog. For those of you who have asked about it, thanks for your patience. Check it out tomorrow 🙂
Hope you all have a lovely night – xo Luciana

Finally I found a flat shoe that I love!!!
I often struggle with buying flat shoes. I find that a lot of them look the same… they’re usually a simple ballet flat and tend to look quite casual no matter what you wear them with. I tend to end up buying them out of necessity but never really loving them like some of my “killer heels” (another post on that coming soon).
When I saw these Wittner flats a little while ago I instantly fell in “shoe love” and was very lucky to receive them as a Christmas present from my Secret Santa. The upper front of the shoe comes up higher than what I’m usually used to but I think that is what makes these shoes look a little more interesting, modern and dressy which make them perfect to wear to work when you can’t be bothered wearing heels. Beautiful AND practical! Also available in white python and black suede from Wittner.

I’ve been trying to dodge the sweltering 40+ degree heat today, and so I have been sat inside under the aircon. I decided that I wanted to re-watch the Hermès documentary, because I loved it so much when i fist saw it, and because it inspires me to get off my butt and create beautiful things.
If like me, you are a lover of beauty, and respect craftsmanship, you should definitely watch this documentary. It was made in 2011 and It is 45 minutes that take you into the workshops of Hermes and behind the people who, draw, paint, weld, and stitch their products.
watch it HERE
see ya later!…i’m off to buy frosty fruits 🙂
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
I had a great New Year’s Eve. Grange and I drove down to the beach to bring in the new year with friends. It was such a fantastic night. We played volleyball & bocce, ate smoked trout, ate pavlova, drank sangria, played games and danced all night.
I hope that you all had a fantastic night on New Year’s Eve too and that 2013 brings you all the things that you dream of!
We have a new friend!!!
I cannot begin to tell you how long I have wanted to own a good quality camera. A couple of days ago the day finally arrived when Grange and I picked up this baby! The Canon EOS 60D. So far its taken some awesome random images, but i cannot wait to play with it a bit more, learn some tricks and generate some images for the blog! I have to say a big thanks to Paul Batt for all of his help in figuring out which camera was best for us, he was a huge help!
Hope you’re all enjoying your breaks before New Year!
Hoping that everyone had a lovely Christmas full of food, family, and laughter. I have had a fantastic Christmas, spent with both my family and Grange’s. I ate heaps of food, laughed a lot and got some kick ass presents. Above are some little snippets of my Christmas taken on Instagram. You can follow me at @lucianacorrales
I cannot believe that as i am writing this it is the 13th of December. Christmas is just around the corner, and although i have helped my mum do all her Christmas shopping, I’ve still got a lot of mine to do. Should you be in the same boat as me, and need some ideas on what to get the lovely ladies in your life, check out my selection above or much much more on my pinterest HERE
Thanks again to all my friends who helped me with your suggestions!
