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 …

Affordable Fashion Straight From The Runway 18

Being a fashion journalist student is kinda like holiday-ing at a beautiful resort but unable to understand/speak the language; challenging but rewarding. I’m able to read and write and gain behind the scenes exclusive knowledge of the latest trends and runway styles but being a university student, simply cannot afford most of the pieces. I understand the daily struggle of browsing through your favourite designers only to realise that the one thing that’s within your price range are a pair of heavily reduced socks. That being said, I have located my favourite FRESH OFF THE RUNWAY looks and trends duplicates that are super affordable and stylish. Check them out and let me know your thoughts.

February Faves

Being the shortest month of the year, February felt almost non existent. But at the same time, it also felt like one of the longest months as it was a month full of departures for me. In saying that, I had a lot of free time this month and spent a lot of days browsing endlessly and I managed to find a lot of fave goodies. I’ve divided it into categories because I do have quite a few to share and thought it would be easier to read this way. Enjoy! To Read: We need to talk about Kevin I purchased this book in December and only got into it this month once the festive holiday season died down and found myself being so attached to it. It’s a psychological drama (what a surprise) book that delves into the life of 15 year old Kevin who killed his classmates in a high school massacre. It’s written through letters in the perspective of his mother as she turns back to her past, her honest opinions on being a …

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 ^_^

Trendsetter | 17

From 2016’s show stopping glitter trends and dark bold brows, we welcome 2017 with 5 beauty looks that will be trending all year round. Let’s take a look at the styles that will surely leave their mark this year.   Under-liner Winged eyeliner was the classic go to all last year and celebrities, models, influencers and runways are switching it up by applying bright liner or glitter under the lower lash line. This look accentuates the eye shape and adds edginess to the overall look ad is definitely a showstopper.   Hazy Glow Dewy makeups are definitely trending in 2017 so be sure to incorporate tinted moisturisers, lip-gloss, cream eye shadows and blushes into your everyday look. Swap your powders for oil-based products that will give you that youthful sheen and leave your skin glowing all year around.   Shimmer strobe It’s time to take your makeup that’s out of this world with galaxy inspired glitter and shimmer. To achieve this, apply a strobing cream, highlighting powder or cream highlight on the high points of …

Summer Lookbook | 17

For most people around the world wild blizzards, creamy hot cocoa and ice sculptures are what’s happening in their day to day lifestyles, so it is hard to imagine that in the Southern hemisphere, we are currently experiencing one of the hottest summers yet. I have decided to put together a quick lookbook on a couple of my favourite outfits that I’ve pieced together this season. Let me know your thoughts down below and and I will put all outfit details at the bottom of each photo. Enjoy xx Dreamy Denim The off the shoulder look has been trending from the runways seen in New York Fashion week of 2016 designers such as Altuzarra, Vera Wang and  Gabriela Hearst just to name a few as well as the world of Instagram influencers. They’re super comfy and flattering and definitely spices up an ordinary cropped top and denim shorts outfit. Top and bottom: Bardot White Summers Eve I used to think that matching sets ‘lacked imagination’ but they’re actually surprisingly and ironically harder to pull off …

Wolf Club

A quick outfit of the day post. With Sydney weather clearing up to reveal humid mornings and cloudy evenings, it’s hard to decipher what to wear. So I have opted for comfort (as per usual) with the classic print tee tucked into denim white shorts. It was a successful Christmas shopping day as I luckily and thankfully managed to snatch up some great discounted clothes. I will post a fashion and beauty related Christmas haul soon. For outfit details, see below xx Top: Sportsgirl Shorts:Kookai Lips: Stila liquid stay all day lipstick in bico 

Whats In A Room

I was recently looking at my old iMovie clips where I used to film and edit short clips and happened to stumble upon a ‘room tour’ video from 2 years ago. A lot has changed since in regards to the design, layout, what products I use and my personal style. I used to love intricate detailings and I was obsessed with cute and girly things.. in other words everything had to be pink and luscious. I’ve screenshotted my favourite stills from the video and hope you enjoy these aesthetically pleasing shots of what used to be my bedroom ^_^ My dresser with my old favourites including a vintage angel candle that was my grandma’s and I now use as a jewellery holder, Glasshouse scented candle in Tahaa, easter bunny from my aunty, skull from Daiso, vintage mini plate with renaissance designs that I use as my everyday jewellery holder.  I thought the Tiffany box complimented the bunny. When I was younger, the only thing I wanted in life was a studious pink desk with mini …

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 …
