Australian dream.

To say I am besotted with Australia would be an understatement of great severity and as a tribute to this beautiful country, a {somewhat restrained} list of why anyone would be just as enamoured:

cerulean seas and pristine sands
balmy summer evenings
intoxicating humidity
sea salt lingering in tousled hair
carefree, free-spirited beings
coconut oil
golden sunkissed skin
dappled light & ocean breezes

the infinite possibility of dreams.

Happy Australia Day everyone! Could not possibly be prouder to be an Aussie. <3 

Much love, Mandy. xx

Am not even going to begin to deny that the space between now and the last post has been one occupied by a rather hectic agenda - certainly the most glamorous side of being a doctor...

But finally, finally, have summoned some time in between the long arduous hours in the hospital to spend in the golden Australian sunshine with family, friends, and even watch my beautiful cousin marry her love {oh Mei-Yan, what a joyous day!} - such a luxury that I habitually took for granted in the formative years...

...And to apologise profusely for the terribly rude absence, I have collaborated with the incredible team at The Luxe Project and am hosting a giveaway for the absolutely lovely clutch featured in this post. 

This is a collaboration I am particularly fond of as I find myself drawn to ethical and sustainable fashion choices that don't compromise on style - and The Luxe Project are impossibly perfect purveyors of gorgeous accessories that add charm and vivacity to any outfit. Their one-of-a-kind accessories are absolutely obligatory for tropical summer holidays and languid beach trips but the ultimate clincher is their holistic, sustainable ethos that is becoming an increasingly important consideration in my recent purchases.

To enter, simply:
(1) Like The Luxe Project on Facebook or follow them on Instagram {@theluxeproject}
(2) Like this blog on Facebook or follow on Instagram {@frocks_frivolities}
(3) Comment on this post, Facebook, or Instagram so I know you've entered!

The competition will close on February 3 :) 

Sending love, as always, and wishing you all a splendid week!
