Miranda Kerr - STEAL HER STYLE!

28 July 2014, by Forrest Chase


Miranda Kerr is a style icon for a reason. She’s a yummy mummy who always looks polished and stylish and we can help you recreate the look!

Beginning with the Dash of Colour Shirt from Sportsgirl ($79.95). This classic shirt can be worn with jeans on the weekend or dressed up with a skirt and heels for work! Miranda pulls hers off with Nobody Jeans – yes you can get the exact same pair (believe it) from Live Clothing. They come in a range of shapes and colours so you can find the pair that work for you, however Miranda wears the Cult Skinny Jean (they range from $180).

Keep it classic with a pair of Ballet Flats, like the Camilo’s from Novo Shoes ($39.95 – umm bargain!) and a pair of shades. You’ll find the Prada Voice Sunnies in Black/Grey ($380) from Sunglass Hut, and they have similar styles and a lower price point too.

Now the final touches! OPI Nail Polish in Cajun Shrimp on the digits – a nice shade of flavoursome red with a hint of coral, bound to bring out the pink tones on the shirt (was $19.95 now $14.96 from Myer). Accompanied with the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick in Intouchable… doesn’t that sound nice?! It hydrates and softens the lips whilst making your lips POP! ($55 from Myer). You can store that in the Fossil Memoir Pocketbook Crossbody in Light Yellow, originally $ 229 now $ 159.95.

Introducing… Jamie's Hit 'n’ Run Traybaked Chicken!

24 July 2014, by Forrest Chase


Are you sick and tired of your go-to soups and casserole winter warming solutions? Well fret not. Woolworths has teamed up with Jamie Oliver to bring you fresh winter dishes using Australian produce at affordable prices. It was hard to pick just one of the yummy recipes to feature, so this is just one of many delicious treats Woolworths and Jamie can help you deliver. Introducing… Jamie's Hit 'n’ Run Traybaked Chicken!

What will you need to serve four empty belly’s?

  • 4 large ripe tomatoes
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 yellow capsicum
  • 6 skinless, boneless free-range chicken thighs
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • ½ a bunch of fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil and last but not least…
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar.

All of which you’ll find at Woolworths (City Central?) of course!

Now how to turn those ingredients into a scrumptious feast…

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Quarter the tomatoes and place them in a large baking dish or roasting tray (roughly 25cm x 30cm). Peel the onions and cut into large wedges, then de seed and roughly chop the capsicums. Add all these to the tray along with the chicken thighs.
  2. Squash the unpeeled garlic cloves with the back of your knife and add to the tray, then pick over the thyme leaves and sprinkle over the paprika. Add the oil, balsamic and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Toss everything together really well to coat, then spread across the tray, making sure the chicken isn't covered by the vegetables. Roast for around 1 hour, or until the chicken is golden and cooked through, turning and basting it a couple of times during cooking with the juices from the tray.
  3. Serve the traybake with a lovely green salad on the side. You could also buddy it up with a little rice, polenta or a loaf of crusty bread to mop up the juices YUM!

A little tip from Jamie…Roasting garlic cloves whole in their skins makes them really sweet – don't waste that lovely soft flesh, squeeze it out and enjoy it!

The Black Bag Edit

07 July 2014, by Forrest Chase



There is nothing like a new classic black bag to update your look this Winter. We all know we have one, but when was the last time you updated your classic black bag? If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry! We have you covered with our quick Black bag edit from a select range of stores at Forrest Chase. No matter the purpose you’re bound to find something you love which is on trend and affordable!

To start we have the Witchery Bridgette Backpack. Not only are backpacks on trend but this one is marked down! Originally $149.95 it’s now $99.95 so get in quick!

Need the space but a backpack isn’t what you’re after? Maybe the Portmans Frankie Punched Tote ($59.95) is more to your liking? The classic tote shape with texture to add some edge.

Feast your eyes on the Nine West Trenleigh Mini ($99.95) – our third pick in the edit. It’s sneaky added leopard texture gives it a little punch, for the ladies who like to stand out from the crowd.

On the other end of the scale is the more minimalistic Innovare Made In Italy Tote Bag from Myer. Classy and sophisticated, this one will set you back $439 but the style is timeless.

Paying homage to the classic Chloe handbag is the Aaron Bag from Novo Shoes ($79.95)…style at a tenth of the price.

Need space for your laptop? Fossil has a range of handbags for the working girl, including the Sydney Work Bag ($449).

Last but not least the Sportsgirl Quincy Satchel ($39.95). Perfect for everyday use and whilst compact, it’s not too small!
