5 HONEST and REAL university (college) EXPECTATIONS

Going from high school to university will probably be one of the biggest transitions of your life. It will be a time where you will grow the most as a person, experience quite possibly all the range of emotions a human can go through and it will one of the greatest times of your life (so far). I started university in 2014 doing a Bachelor’s of Journalism at the University of Technology, Sydney. I had just finished my 12 years of schooling and couldn’t wait to start afresh doing something I initially thought was going to be what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing. However, one of the biggest things I’ve learnt so far is that life doesn’t necessarily go as planned. In my head, I had my whole life figured out. I would study university for 4 years, get a degree in what I loved, enjoy every single minute of it, and there would be a full-time job waiting for me on the other side. My expectations were far from …

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017 | Highlights, Fantasy Bra and Swarovski Crystals

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held in Shanghai, China and included the beautiful Bella Hadid, Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima and more. This year, 55 Victoria’s Secret Angels walked down the aisle and had talent guest singers including Harry Styles, Miguel, Leslie Odom Jr and Jane Zhang. The show opened with Candice Swanepoel wearing a black and red plaid lingerie set designed by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing. Strutting down the aisle looking like a real life Barbie Doll, it’s hard to imagine that just last year (in October actually) did she welcome her first child. It was the FIRST time that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show was held in an Asian country. As well as other firsts, luxury designer Balmain featured many of the Angel’s looks including the ‘Punk Angel’ and ‘Goddesses’ group. As for this year’s ‘fantasy bra’, it was worn by the amazing Brazilian model, Lais Ribeiro. The ‘Champagne nights’ fantasy bra valued at $2.6 million was of course another highlight of the show, encrusted with bejewelled diamonds, yellow sapphires and blue topaz, …

Riverdale Recap: Death Proof Season 2 Ep 6

Riverdale Recap Death Proof: After Betty’s deal with the devil, aka The Black Hood to sacrifice assaulter Nick St Claire, I was on edge throughout the rest of the week to find out what would happen in this episode of Riverdale! And it’s safe to say that I was not disappointed. We find out that Nick is actually still alive and is later explained by the anonymous Black Hood that he couldn’t be killed as he is not a real resident of Riverdale. Even if he was, he wouldn’t be missed by any. As for this week’s task given to Betty by the Black Hood (and by this stage it’s almost feeling a weekly uni assessment and the masked figure in all black is that one tutor who we loathe with a passion that delivers only bad news), she is ordered to find out who the ‘Sugarman’ is, the supplier of their notorious drug ‘jingle-jangle’. With all that happened to the Blossom family, you would think by now that the mother and daughter as they …

Celebrity street style | Gingham, Designer tees…

This week I am going to be sharing my favourite ‘celebrity inspired’ street-style looks that I have created. Normally, when choosing outfits or statement pieces, I don’t necessarily copy from head to toe a celebrity’s style down to the exact colour of socks they wear, I like to look at what’s been trending and gain inspiration from there. In particular, gingham and statement tees have been popular all over social media from celebrities to IT bloggers sharing these trends online. Here is my take on the trends and how EASY they are to incorporate to your own style: Gingham It’s what everyone has been obsessing over and what’s not to love about the black and white monochrome? It instantly gives off that classic but effortless look, perfect for any occasion. It’s also great for the Summer season and because of it’s minimal colours, gingham pairs well with almost anything! Slogan Tees Let’s face it, even though the Gucci printed tee is very cute and has been worn by almost every A-list celebrity, I don’t think …
