Give Your Feet a Break

We have another giveaway this week from the lovely crew at FlexiFlats. FlexiFlats are gorgeous and comfortable flats that fold up into a pouch the size of your hand. Pop them in your handbag on a night out and when your heels become a bit too much, slip on these comfy little guys and carry your heels home in the nifty carry bag.

They have given us 5 pairs to give away to our readers. All you need to do is tell us why your feet need a break and you'll go into the running to win a pair. Winner selected at random!

We heart Yamila Guedez

New-comer to the Australian fashion scene, Yamila Guedez, is causing quite a stir with her stylish, striking and sexy jewellery and affectionately known 'compliments for women'.

The description is right on the mark with these amazing pieces transforming a regular outfit in to a traffic-stopping, head-turning sensation.

Since early April, the bubbly and beautiful Yamila has been adorning Melbournians from her Armadale store in the Kings Arcade, just off High St.

Yamila's designs are characterised by mixing raw materials, fabrics and colours and all of her collections have an original point of difference. The result is wearable art that will take any outfit to a whole new level!

Check out her fabulous collection at --

It's nearly time for the FJ team to head off for the weekend (YAY!) but before we go we just wanted to let you know of a rocking Saturday night party for a really good cause.

YGAP (YGeneration Against Poverty) are a youth based charity run entirely by volunteers.

Over the past 25 days, two YGAP volunteers have peddled over 4,100km (that's longer than the Tour de France!) down the East coast of Australia to raise awareness for this awesome charity.

To celebrate, they will be holding a banging party at Prince tomorrow night (5 June).

The likes of David Guetta, Groove Armada and Bookashade will (not) be there, but local favourites Andy Murphy, Nick Foley, Mic Newman, Joel Alpha and many more will ensure the FJ crew is dancing all night!

It's going to be a huge night for a charity within an even bigger heart so if you're free tomorrow be sure to pop on down!

YGap at Prince, Prince Bandroom, 5 June

Clothing and Cupcakes at Cecylia!!

While visiting clients in High St, Armadale last week I wandered in to gorgeous new boutique Cecylia. And yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Cecylia herself and trying one of her delicious cupcakes!

The boutique opened around six weeks ago and we predict it will be quickly become a new favourite on the popular High St shopping strip when shoppers discover the fabulous, hand-picked collections that Cecylia has decided to showcase.

Cecylia is the exclusive Australian stockist for labels Felder Felder (UK), Spijkers en Spijkers (Netherlands) and Alldressedup (Singapore). Cecylia is also the largest Melbourne stockist of iconic French shoe label Repetto and Croatian-born designer Karla Spectic's romantic knits and silk creations.

Cecylia also stocks Gail Sorronda and Bezoar Cashmere from a little closer to home and is pleased to to announce future collaborations with international labels Sophia Kokosalakai and Antonia Goy as their exclusive Australian stockist for the next season.

Cecylia has made shopping in her boutique a true experience and you are invited to share a cup of freshly brewed tea and indulge in a yummy cup cake (possibly the BEST cupcakes I've ever tasted - and I've had my fair share of cupcakes!) while you check our her latest pieces.

Hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more of her and her amazing collections (Felder Felder is my personal fave) in FJ very soon!
