Once in a while it is important, almost imperative to dress up wearing a new outfit that we know we shouldn’t have splurged on, style our hair differently and dab on that gorgeous shade of lipstick that you wouldn’t normally wear on a day to day basis. But you’re only young once, and in 10 years time your body won’t be looking as fit and fine as it is currently. The sun is shining and it will continue to shine bright everyday and it makes you realise that life is to short to wear bland colours and clothing. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and go out as though you are as fabulous and fashionable as Blake Lively or Olivia Palermo. Here are some of my favourite glam outfits that I’ve been wearing currently: Dress: Missguided Shoes: Betts Top: Sportsgirl Top: Dotti Jeans: Kookai Top: Glassons Jeans: Topshop Heels: Betts Have a beautiful day and stay glam xx

Winter OOTD | 13-14th Aug 2016

The endless winds, hazy dusty sky and torrential rain has finally come to an end here in Sydney where we are (FINALLY) greeted with bursts of sunshine, warmth and good vibes! I have put together two outfits that I have worn this weekend which are suitable for the winter-spring transition to share with all you lovely readers. Another quick update is that I have recently purchased a canon camera and I am so excited to create new projects on this blog as well as my Instagram page (linked to your right for daily updates) so stay tuned for that! I am a Summer baby (born in January) so summer clothes and styling are my forte so I cannot wait to start snapshotting my daily OOTD’s, beauty routine and everything else related to beauty, fashion and styling^_^ I hope you guys enjoy and below are the outfits I wore this weekend! 13/8/16 For Saturday’s look I was rocking the sporty vibe, and decided to go all out with the baseball hat, meshed jersey, leggings and sneakers …

These Boots Were Made For Walking…

As the mid year approaches, mid year exams, deadlines and assessments will be the centre of your worries so finding an appropriate outfit is probably the LAST thing on your mind. However, I’m all about practicability and because knee high-boots have become pretty popular from the runways to the streets, I’ve decided to share 3 simple ways on how to look good without wasting those precious extra minutes in the morning! With Winter fast approaching, it’s time to get out the chunky sweaters, turtleneck jumpers and of course, our classic pair of knee-high boots. The first look is perfect for uni or a casual day out with your friends for brunch in the city. I’ve paired my black boots from H&M with a super cosy grey knitted turtle neck jumper and comfy black shorts. You can even add a necklace as a statement piece for that added detail and you’re good to go. For my next look, this is more applicable to wear one of those days where you want to look great but just can’t …

Don’t We Have It All?

  I am currently listening to a remix of ‘Lost Frequencies‘ (click on the song name for 2 and a half minutes of ear-gasm) and became immersed in recollections and ideas that have been on my mind recently as well as a sudden spark of thoughts so I hastily opened my blog and here I am typing away. I hope my conglomerated flow of ideas aren’t too confusing to understand. Listening to this song struck a chord for me; I don’t know if it was the upbeat bass that always gets me pumped up, or the simple lyrics leaving room for interpretation. Either way, I was suddenly taken on a journey starting from my childhood and ending up to present day. I was on a magic carpet ride of notes and tunes lulling me from my memories of the past to present day me. ‘I can fly high, I can go low’ transported me to when I was 6 years old. Fingers sticky from lemonade icy poles and wearing brightly coloured scrunchies, I dreamt of what I …

Summer/Spring Lookbook 2016

For those of you living in the Southern Hemisphere, colder days are soon arriving (breaks down in tears), and so again the cycle of confusion begins as we’re left struggling in the midst of our rooms, surrounded by mismatched shoes, heavy coats and halter tops that just don’t seem to be appropriate for this seasonal period. So for today’s blogpost, I’ve shared 3 appropriate outfits to prepare yourselves for the ever-changing, ever-catastrophic weather season: Over the past few months, I’ve basically been living in midi wrap dresses because they’re just so damn comfy to hop into! In this first outfit I am wearing an olive green wrap dress that is the softest material that stretches so you don’t have to worry about looking like a baby penguin in public. These dresses hug you in all the right places that not only keep you warm but also accentuates your curves!  I’ve paired it with my comfiest nude heels from the Kardashian Kollection but I’ve also worn it with beige sandals and even black Havaianas. And in …

Follow Me Around Visual Diary

Hi beautiful friends! For today’s post I am going to be sharing with you a photo-diary of a follow me around from when I went shopping in the city with one of my good friends  yesterday. We were originally supposed to meet up for lunch and gym but after exploring these trendy boutiques hidden in Chinatown, we kind of compromised that with all this walking around, it was kindaaaa like hitting the gym (who were we kidding). However, it did end up to be such an exciting day and its spontaneous unplanned trips like these that end up to be one of the most memorable days that we’ll cherish forever. We were shopping in the usual vicinity of Pitt Street Mall and browsing mind-numbly through the usual (Zara, Topshop, General Pants, Dotti) and we just couldn’t understand why we struggled so much in finding pieces that we actually liked! Once again, we hadn’t picked out anything so, we headed through to Chinatown to catch the train. It was there that we decided to stop at …

Obsessed

The last time I scrabbled a film review on my blog was probably mid last year and since I am still in holiday mode, I have no excuse in impeding a film review blog post as the majority of my sweltering summer nights are consumed with me laying sprawled on my couch under the air con immersed in a film or documentary. One that comes into my mind that I watched last night in fact is psychological thriller ‘Obsessed’. This film actually was recommended by my dad during a conversation we had on the topic of love and divorce in todays society and, after reading the synopsis and finding that Beyonce was in this film, I hastily made my way to Megashare to begin viewing. The film opens to an idyllic scene of a perfect couple Derek Charles (Ibris Elba) and Sharon (Beyonce) moving into a comfortable home with their toddler. Fuzzy music gushing with romance and love play serenely in the background as the young family stare adoringly into each others eyes and mutter assuringly …

A Picture Tells A Thousand Words.

People say that our life is but a mere interpretation, a huddle of our thoughts, emotions and stories melded into one. The saying ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ revealing how although we are all human, made of the same skin, flesh and bones living on this same Earth, our experiences are individually, drastically different. It’s kind of like art. How each viewer, staring at the exact same painting, visual or template will gather their own interpretation of what that ‘art’ is through their assortment of jumbled up personal experiences and viewpoints. I’m not exactly an ‘artsy’ person. I cannot and I really mean it when i say that I cannot draw to save the life of me (and the whole human race if ever I was presented in that dilemma). However, when I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney yesterday, it was overall a lovely experience and I soaked in as much as I could. There were 2 levels of artwork pieces sprawled throughout, and the main theme centering the art space …

Winter Must-Haves 2015

Winter has officially arrived in the land down under… And i’m already missing Summer ='( We are now halfway through with the year which is totally so surprising as reflecting on 2015 so far, it felt like last week where I was just beginning the first semester of uni. I was born in January so my disdain for the colder months of the year can be partly blamed towards me being a Summer baby. My tan is slowly but surely disappearing, the only physical remnants I have of the lovely adventures I had over the course of this Summer. Speaking of disappearing, my summer body I’ve attained has also decided to leave upon the arrival of Winter. However, despite having to wear layers of clothing and suffering the beauty of looking like Rudolph everytime I go out, I must admit, winter does come with cute clothes and trends. So here we have it, my current favourite winter essential and faves of 2015. 1. Oversized Coat This is pretty much as crucial as wearing sunscreen for the …

Vivid Sydney 2015

So last Friday my boyfriend and I headed to Vivid Sydney 2015 and all in all, it was simply breathtaking. We didn’t go to the main attraction at Circular Quay just because we knew that it would be brimming with people, but the real reason (and more importantly) was that we were too lazy to walk all the way to the other-side of the city since we were already 5 mins away from Darling Harbour. As soon as we arrived at the top of the stairs descending down the Harbour we were immediately taken aback. The wharf was transformed with these huge water features in the centre of the wharf that shone with brightly coloured lights that illuminated the water fountains, making it appear to be dancing to the rhythm of the music. In the background, stood the Novo Hotel and it too was ornamented with lights that dazzled to the beat of the music, an array of light and sound explosion. Although the night was windy, we were well prepared with our oversized coats …
