May Faves | Nudes, Green Gables & More…

We have officially reached the mid year of 2017! It’s crazy to think how fast time is passing and it makes me EVEN MORE nervous to realise how there is still so many things I have to yet to do. That being said, May for me was a frenetic (fave new word of the week hehe) month. It was the busier latter half of semester at uni where everything was due sporadically and all at once.  It was also my first time at Mercedes Benz Fashion week and there were events almost every weekend for me related to fashion and bloggers and just another excuse to brunch with friends. I do have quite a few random favourites across all spectrums including a show I am now addicted to, and a must try winter tea. Fashion: Knee-high boots May was the official turning point for the colder months ahead and I am definitely not one for the chillier weather so throughout May I was wearing my black suede knee high boots from H&M I bought a few …

January Art Gallery

Before we begin this post can we just take a minute to realise that we have successfully reached the END of the first month of the new year?!?!? This also means for us Australians and everyone else who lives in the Southern Hemisphere that we are halfway through Summer! This month had been a successful one filled with many trips to the beach, post Christmas shopping sprees, my birthday, lazing around with my boyfriend before he leaves in February to med school and of course, more time working on my Instagram posts. As I mentioned previously, each month I will share an ‘inspiration’ mood board collating all the photos that have inspired me. In January I was inspired by dewy red cranberry makeup looks, the women’s march and the collective love that everyone had as they stood together in solidarity to speak up to what they believed in and of course anything that sparkled. Leave me a comment and let me know what you were inspired by and what your favourite inspiration picture was ^_^

Instagram Poems + Fake Friends

She had blue skin,  and so did he,  He kept it hid, and so did she,  They searched for blue, Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew. This was a poem I read earlier today on Instagram (@emmamercury) and it stuck with me all day. It made me remember all those times when I would put on a ‘mask’ in front of people in a hopeless attempt to get them to like me more, thinking that they would be impressed or that I would become more popular, likeable and even beautiful. Now that I am 20, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and although I still have much much more to learn from, I feel that the me one, five and ten years ago was completely different than the person who I am today. So I’ve compiled a list of 7 things (to keep it short and sweet) of things that I have learnt over the brief period of years. Hope you enjoy xx You can’t get everyone to like you… and that’s …

7:25am thoughts

It’s a Friday morning and the sun is bursting through the cherry red curtains, prying its way eagerly with golden fingertips to reach the interiors of the house. Outside, the birds are chatting away as they soar overhead, ready to take on the day. It’s 7:25am and I am sitting here wide awake feeling somewhat inspired and motivated. Uni starts next month, my mum and brother return home from Shanghai China in 3 days and I just got a call from my manager at work asking if I could take the 10-6 shift. Life feels so normal, nothing significant is happening really yet at the same time, it feels so different. Every time i realise my age and that I’ve hit the big 20’s makes me jitter with nerves that I am already a fully fledged adult. yet, ironically I still feel like I’m 16 years old (minus the pimples, acne and devastating clothes style…i thought layering singlets were a cute summer choice…) Now as I type this, i look out my window to the …

My Bag & I

We’ve all heard of the saying ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’, but to me I think that our real inanimate best friends are our purses. We carry them everywhere we go, and in it they store everything from lifesaving essentials to bits and bobs that represent who we are as a person.

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 …
