Melbourne Travel Blog 2017 | Uni Ball

Sorry for the spam of photos, I really thought that I didn’t take enough of my trip to Melbourne last week…turns out I under-estimated how many I considered was of a substantial amount. If you don’t know already if you’re not following my Insta account  (I upload every day and share everything about my lifestyle), I visited Melbourne last Thursday-Monday to see my boyfriend who studies at university there. We have this tradition where every year we attend his med-ball and for the past 2 years, we always celebrated it in Sydney during the semester and since this year he’s studying medicine in Melbourne, we knew that we had to preserve our celebratory tradition. On the first day, we headed to Melbourne CBD and wandered around looking for a cute place to have dinner. One thing I wish Sydney had was the free tram line that circled around the CBD of Melbourne because it saved us so much time. When it comes to food, we always have spend so much time deciding what to eat …

A Weekend In My Life | Sydney, Australia

I have to be honest, the majority of my weekends are spent either working (I’m a marketing consultant at a hair and beauty salon) or at home binge-watching on Youtube videos or Dance Moms. However, last weekend was one of those few days where I actually did something productive and went out and enjoyed the sunshine. Now that we’ve reached August, the last month of Winter, there are more warmer days to enjoy meaning that it’s time to swap the scarves for our sandals and head outside. For this post, instead of writing out a long and detailed essay on what I did, where I went, what I wore etc, I decided to just share my weekend with a visual diary and a small comment underneath. I hope you enjoy and let me know what you want to see next xx Brunch at a popular Instagram cafe-Concrete Jungle located just behind Central Park. We ordered coffee, sweet potato fries, blue smoothie bowl with berries and coconut flakes and the health bowl full of sweet goodness …

Aesthetically Pleasing Fashion & Lifestyle Inspo

We all have those days where we’re scrolling endlessly through Pinterest or Tumblr wishing and admiring we had that perfect designer bag or those white rooms with floor to ceiling windows and that looked out into the ocean. Whether you’re wanting to gain some beauty, fashion or lifestyle inspiration or just need another excuse to delay your uni assignment, check out some of my favourite Pinterest images from this month! As you can see, this month I was inspired by all things nude, white and very minimalistic and simple. I now focus my photography skills (which is still very basic) on getting the perfect lighting and only having one salient piece as the focus. Leave your pinterest account below so I can follow 😛

Stylish People You Need To Follow

Looking for fashion and beauty inspiration can sometimes be harder in today’s media world because we’re flooded with so many fashion and style icons. For today’s post I’m going to be sharing my top favourite influencers that I always go back to when I’m feeling under-inspired and just need a burst of creativity. Janice Joostema Janice’s Instagram is definitely one of my favourites because her feed is minimalistic, chic and sophisticated. She’s only one year older than me but she’s achieved so much already and always looks like she’s stepped out of a glam magazine. 2. Olivia Palermo  I fell in love with her when I first saw her on the reality show ‘The City’ which was way back in 2008. Her fashion is not only elegant and simplistic but also represents her bold personality and how she’s not afraid to say what she feels. Her blog also has everything to keep you up to date when it comes to runway shows and high end fashion. 3. Sincerely Jules  Julie Sarinana or Sincerely Jules as …

How To: Style A Leather Jacket (Minimalistic)

The ultimate essential for ANYONE no matter what season/climate or where you are in the world is a black leather jacket. I recently was at Zara the other day and spotted the perfect black glossy leather jacket that was perfectly fit (not cropped or oversized) with minimalistic silver detailings on the sleeves, pockets and collar. I’ve been on the lookout for the longest time for a good quality leather jacket that was the perfect fit and didn’t have too much going on. It was pure destiny that they only had one left in my size  and for a jacket under $250, it was everything I’ve envisioned in purchasing a leather jacket. For today’s look I was super casual and minimalistic with a black and white outfit, where the highlight of my outfit was on my lips wearing a bright red Nars lipstick. You’ll be seeing a lot more versatile looks on how I style my leather jacket in the future xx   I’ve also linked 5 very similar leather jackets UNDER $100! Check them out …

Bedazzled & Crystallised | Fall Couture 2017

Fall Couture fashion week took over Paris with bedazzled sequins, intricate embellishments and plenty of glitz and sparkle. Couture fashion is probably my favourite collections to admire because they’re so big and bold with this year making no exception and failing to disappoint. Here are my favourite pieces from this years designs. Zuhair Murad: A designer who I just recently discovered and instantly fell in love with. His pieces are renowned for their Princess-esque theme, sprawled with crystals, delicate fabric and long flowing gowns. This season’s looks were inspired by The Gibson Girl, the personification of the ideal woman, embracing power, sex-appeal and beauty. Elie Saab:  One of my favourite high end designers, Elie Saab’s theme this year couldn’t be more accurate than a medieval warrior princess. In fact, the Lebanese designer even called it ‘A tale of fallen kings’, with his pieces sprawled with embroidery, velvet, coats and capes.   Fendi:  Anything created/produced by Karl Lagerfield is bound to be a masterpiece, and this year’s theme being ‘theatrics’ was taken literally from the prints …

Top 5 Clubs In Sydney

Born and bred in Sydney, Australia I have had my fair share of visiting many night clubs and bars within the Sydney vicinity. And although Sydney’s night life has taken a big hit with the introduction of the lock out laws that were recently put at bay, it still hasn’t stopped us young party-goers from enjoying a night out in the city. Here are my top 5 picks of where to go on a night out full of fun, laughter and alcohol. Marquee Nightclub When: Saturdays If you live in Sydney, a visit to Marquee Nightclub is a must, and almost a tradition to go at least ONCE as soon as you’re of age. Located in The Star Casino, this is the place to be and hosts all the international superstars that come out to play during the after hours. Although you do have pay for tickets, and drinks can be pricey I recommend paying early bird entry (in before 11pm) and pre drinking someplace cheaper so that you don’t wake up the next morning …

Models Hadid Sisters Street Style

Bella and Gigi Hadid have been killing it this year with their street style, staying ahead and up to date with the hottest fashion and beauty trends. Both being professional runway models and constantly being surrounded by other IT girl models and creative designers can also explain why their style is always ‘on point’. Although they are twins, their style couldn’t be anymore different. Gigi Hadid’s style is more of a refined and minimalistic look whereas Bella Hadid is edgy and modern with an eclectic twist. One thing I’ve noticed from both sisters however is their love for denim, and whether it’s a double denim on denim or a sequinned top with distressed navy jeans, if it’s anyone who can pull off a quirky look, it’s the Hadid’s. I’ve stalked their Instagram (as I do on a daily basis) and screenshotted my favourite looks from the sisters. And even better, I’ve even linked similar looks so you don’t have to stress about where to find their outfit pieces. All the hard work, anxiety and panic …
