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 …

Skin-Deep: My Everyday Routine

One of my favourite topics to read are skin care related routines and learning all about the benefits of certain ingredients for your face. So for today’s post I’ve decided to share what I do as part of my daily skin care routine. Because I have combination/oily skin, these products are targeted at combatting large pores, oil and redness. To start off with, I use my coveted Micellar Cleansing Water in Oil that removes even the most stubborn waterproof makeup. The oil is so gentle that you don’t need to rub harshly, preventing premature wrinkles as well as ensuring that you don’t pull out half your lashes while you’re at it. For my face wash I’m using from The Body Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava foaming face wash to clean out clogged dirt and oil from the pores. This is a super soft exfoliating wash and has a light scent that smells of citrus. I’ve been using it for around 6 months now and love how gentle it is without irritating my skin and leaving it to …

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 …

Beauty Bits: 5 Products Every Girl (or guy) Needs In Their Make-Up Bag

Recently, I was browsing through the Sephora website when I was supposed to be working on my Global Cinema analysis essay and it wasn’t until I was well into the 7th/8th page of all the moisturiser products Sephora stocked that I realised the in numerous amount of beauty products released into the consumer realm! It got me thinking, with this influx of beauty products and tools that have been marketed through social media (Instagram in particular with those beautiful fitness models promoting the latest ‘god-send’ product), how on earth is one supposed to rummage through and find products that actually make a noticeable difference? So with that being said I have shared with you my top 5 holy grail beauty items that I STRONGLY believe every girl (or guy) must encounter and try. Papulex Isocorrexion Hydrating Cream I’m a strong advocate in believing that the secret of healthy, glowing clear skin begins with an excellent moisturiser. It doesn’t matter what skin type you have, moisturising your skin is imperative in retaining skin oil balance. I …

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 …
