ORDER – WEAR – SHARE … just once .


Surely we all know the feeling of

having a party,

a get together,

an engagement

or some sort of a special occasion to attend,

yet we seem to not have anything to wear in our closet.

What are we going to do?

Thank You to the beautiful and lovely Michelle, yes some of you may know her of the Australian Channel 9 Reality TV Series

Married at First Sight“,

others know her as a friend, family member, work colleague or simply a woman with the ultimate dream of owning her very own business – Just Once.com.au

The site features designers such as Maurie & Eve, Dion Lee, Lover, Manning Certell, Bec & Bridge and so many more. Now, who of you ladies wouldn’t want to wear a designer dress for one night and ultimately feel a million dollars, just think … you get to wear a stunning designer dress by your favorite designer to your special occasion and the designer and Just Once both get a shout out as every other attendee will surely be very jealous of your amazing outfit.

Just think of all the compliments you will receive…

It really could not get any simpler.

So how does it work?

You pick your dress from the amazing collection on offer, prices vary.

They will send it to you for the date you need it.

You wear it and show it off.

Once that special occasion of yours is over, you simply pop it into the return satchel that was provided to you on delivery. Done and Dusted!

BUT … there is one thing you have committed to during this entire process of ORDERING and WEARING your favorite designer dress


SHARING on all social media avenues, by tagging @j_u_s_t_o_n_c_e on your Instagram account to receive a shutout or email a photo to hello@justonce.com.au

So simply and yet an amazing idea!

So, when is your next special event you need to be in attendance at?

Micawber Restaurant Dandenong Ranges


Out on a #Date

with my incredible other half, after heading to Grant’s Picnic Ground within the Dandenong Ranges, where humiliation took over

… how?

Well… parked the car and enthusiastically purchased a ticket to feed some wild cockatoos within an enclosure. Got the ticket + got the tray of seeds and stood within the enclosure with other people but with no birds!

Goodness it was so embarrassing especially when all these tourists started arriving wanting to do the same thing but in the end the birds did make a bit of an appearance.

However, we did go on a circle walk nearby, which was quite lovely but very muddy but of course part of the adventure.

While the majority of the morning was spent out and about, a lunch booking was waiting for us at Micawber Restaurant.


As it was on a Sunday it was getting quite busy during our lunch, the food was pretty good, presented well yet personally I would have liked to get a little bit for for the money that was spent, each to their own.

All in all it was a nice day, lots of fun and adventure. Looks like I have to head off now… #Pig&Whistle is calling my name. 😉

That time of year …

“… when we tend to rest more on the couch then we have ever before,

where thick socks and boots are your wardrobe staples,

a time we frequent our local cafes more than ever .

and all this to keep out of the cold, rainy, chilly, windy winter weather Melbourne is offering us at the moment.

While I am a #PaleoFoodie to the best of my ability, LOVE food way to much – so I tend to use winter as a time to explore and #roadtrip my way around the area in the search of some nice little tucked away cafes or english / irish taverns, various other restaurants.

Completely well traveled I would say.

While I am off into the #DandenongRanges tomorrow for some quality time with my significant other, I will most certainly keep you updated on some beautiful places for lunch, dinner and some very beautiful places to refresh and rejuvenate.

Stay Happy + Keep Looking Beautiful.
