Spring has always been my favourite season of the year, besides the fact that it falls on my birthday. It is the warming feeling of the sun, the cooling breeze of the air and most importantly, the colours of the rainbow painted across fields of green that gets me every time.
As most things, however, there are negatives, one of which is hay fever……Oh that dreaded hay fever !!! I’m not just talking about getting little sniffles here and there, I’m talking about the whole shebang: itchy mouth, inflamed red eyes, constant sneezing and nose running like a tap. Yup, if you ever see me in Spring, expect the worst, I am by no means at my best hahahahaha!
Whatever the case, I freaking love spring! Call me a romantic or just plain cheesy, I always saw Spring as a time for new beginnings, I get the sudden spark of inspiration and drive.

I also noticed that my direction in clothing quickly changes. The urge of wearing pants, suddenly changes to shorts, my choices of black and white quickly turns to bright colours and the constant want to wear skirts/dresses is at an all time high.
One type of clothing in particular that I subconsciously keep taking out for a spin, is this oversized floral print midi skirt. Nothing in my wardrobe shouts Spring more than this little number.
Since the weather is currently in-between hot and cold, I find I can never go wrong with this choice. The over the knee length and thick material provides the right balance, accommodating both cool and warm weather.
Because of its bight colourful aesthetic, I find it easier to wear it with basic black and white, just like in this outfit post. However, on days I’m feeling extra confident, I style it with contrasting colours as well as mixing it up with different patterns.
I do need to admit, that the only downside to this skirt is the fact that it is so distinctive, which limits the number of times I can wear it without being to repetitious. In all honesty, however, I am proud about being a serial wardrobe repeat, just as long as there are slight changes to accessories, tops and bottoms. I’m sure I don’t need to give you a heads up that this isn’t the last time you’ll be seeing this skirt HAHAHAHA!

What is your current favourite item of clothing in your wardrobe? Feel free to share in the comment box below.

Thank you for visiting and I’ll see you soon with another post :)

In September, I attended an event for the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, DFS. The “First Class Beauty” event was held at the Galleria in Sydney on George Street. It was an exclusive global event, which also took place in five international airports and 14 Galleria stores across nine countries including Hawaii, Hong Kong and Los Angeles etc.

“First Class Beauty by DFS was created to offer customers a one-of-a-kind experience inspired by travel. The program highlights DFS’ unique offerings of luxury beauty products across cosmetics, skincare and fragrances, exceptional range of services and delightful in-store experiences.”

At the event, after being greeted at the door by the PR agency Blue Planet, we were kindly escorted through the surprising number of levels of DFS, accommodating everything travel. We reached the top level and were served with Moet in what I would call a golden goblet, perfectly paired with delicious canapés overlooking a very stunning view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

It was a completely different experience to the fashion events I had attended in the past; since its focus was purely on luxury beauty. Something in all honestly, I am not so familiar with. If you were to ask me about any high-class beauty products or the places to go to purchase these products, I wouldn’t even know where to start (this is the inner tomboy in me talking).
However, attending this event was a big eye opener, I was introduced to a large range of high-end beauty products such as La Mer and La Prairie. The products were applied through hand and arm massages, along with skin consultations, we were informed about the natural ingredients used and the proper application for the products to achieve the best results.

Not only did they impress with the beauty products on offer, to celebrate the event, they had a photo-booth, which me and Chin had so much fun in.

They also offered us a customised travel journal with our names written in calligraphy to celebrate their DFS Fall/Winter 2014 Campaign by T Galleria. Check out their video below featuring Micheal Kors.

The DFS staff were incredibly nice and so lovely to get along with, in my conversations with each different staff member, it was clear to see that they all shared a family bond, most of them had worked for DFS for more than 3 years. A bond which was very clearly translated through their customer service, that was nothing short of high end luxury.

Just through this experience alone, it took me back to when I a child, curiously watching my mother apply her face creams and moisturisers. I started to reminisce of my travel overseas with my family; my mother and father would dress me head to toe in my best clothes and them in theirs. It was a formal event, they saw it as a special occasion, almost as a celebration, my mother especially, would not be able to contain her excitement walking into the duty free store, I remember her absolutely going crazy with all the beauty products on display. This is exactly the type of nostalgia DFS brings back to travelling and shopping; “seeing the word through the travellers touch, inspired by curiosity, the invitation to dream, a promise to delight and the legacy of adventure”.

I have travelled a fair bit, whether it be interstate or overseas, it is nice to be reminded about what travelling is all about.

I’ll let you in on a little secret, after the event, I had tried La Mer and now, I am absolutely hooked! For someone who previously could care less about the product used on their face, I am now looking to invest on the care of my skin. After using the products, my skin has never been better, no foundation required, I absolutely swear by it!

So I’m sure you can guess what I’ll be doing within a months time when I travel to Philippines Boracay? Yup, I’ll be treating me to some of that DFS duty free first class beauty hahahaha!
For those of you who aren’t planning to travel soon, you can show an international ticket travelling within 3 months time. You can also head to the nearest DFS Galleria, where you don’t have a time limit on your shopping experience and you can enjoy your retail therapy with less stress.

Just a bit of a special treat, I came across one of my favourite bloggers Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage, sharing beauty tips about her trips featured on the DFS website, click HERE to check it out.

Thanks so much for visiting again and I’ll see you tomorrow with another outfit post :)

Hello Hello!

So glad to share another outfit post with you all, especially an outfit that includes my love of vintage clothing.
I know I haven’t been as frequent with my posts for the past 2 months but for me, it was a much-needed break. It’s that time of the year when everything falls quickly and so heavily from the preparations of Christmas and the lead up to the summer break. Priorities pile up, the list of ‘things to do’ becomes never ending and the pressures of work and college start to weigh heavily. Worst of all, your negative subconscious starts tempting you to drop everything and give up amidst the pressures of life.
This is something that I am more than familiar with because I have experienced this time and time again.
Before things had become more than overwhelming, I made sure to remove myself from the situation, just for a couple of weeks to adjust. Taking preventive measures to prepare for the stress to come.

Now I’m back in the blogosphere, charged up and ready to go! Currently prioritising business meetings and the importance of taking on quality and not quantity, which is a mistake that I’ve made several times.

To start us off, some you may recognise this fluffy jumper from one of the outfits I wore to fashion week. Well, since then, this vintage gem has kept me not only comfortable but also warm in the coldest of weathers. I found this treasure at a Salvation Army store in the city for just $50 and I haven’t parted ways with it since. I think I’m even in denial that the weather is warming up because even in the warmest of days I find myself wanting to put it on ahahahaha!
I have always loved vintage clothing and it is a perfect fit for someone like me, a student, shopping with cost limitations, however, purchasing clothes without jeopardising the quality and aesthetic.
To create visual depth and compliment it’s vocal point, I wore it with black disco pants and mustard socks against white boots. I could of easily kept it simple with just back and white but to be honest, it’s not me without that little bit of colour hehehe.

To make up for my previous lack of contact, I’ll be posting more frequently within the coming weeks letting you in on all the things I’ve been up to :P

Thanks for visiting and I’ll catch you later this week

Hello!!! :)

Sporty Chic is a common and popular trend that 2014 has adopted so well.
We have seen it on the runways, the red carpet and more commonly though street fashion. It is a trend that I have welcomed with open arms and am more than willing to continue embracing, indulging in all that blissful comfort.
The trend involves combining sportswear or a fashionable adaptation, with everyday fashion items and clothing. It is identified more commonly as a mix of sportswear teamed with feminine clothing and items.Just think of a baggie hoodie worn with boyfriend jeans, high heels and you favourite tote.

For those of you who have followed me from the start, you are no stranger to the fact that I grew up as a bit of a tomboy. Till this day, I find comfort in wearing my boyfriend, Chin’s baggy shirts, t-shirts and jackets, making this one of the reasons why I love this trend.

Being a typical girl, it’s that occasional indecisiveness when it comes to particular fashion choices that I hate so much. All you girls can back me up on this one, am I right? HAHAHA! You know what I’m talking about, the days that you draw a complete blank, staring into your closet with no idea what to wear.

I decided to post up this outfit in particular because it is on my re-wear/recycle list. It can be worn on a casual day out, teamed with a pair of sneakers and worn right into the night, simply just by switching to heels. Plus did I mention how amazing skorts are, I mean shorts and a skirt into one… BEST THING EVER!!!

These photos are apart of a collaboration I did with a photographer called Toàn Tran, he was also the technical talent behind my previous outfit post “Missing Summer”. I’ve been so excited about sharing the collaboration with you all because he did such an amazing job. Stay tuned, we have one more outfit post from our collaboration, so keep a look out for it ;)

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you all soon with another post :)

Melbourne has always been one of my favourite places in Australia, the music, the people, the cute little alleyways, the fashion, the culture and THE FOOD!!! Oh don’t even get me started about the food!!!
I have only been there twice and both times I absolutely loved it!!!

For the longest time Melbourne was one of the few places I considered moving to. I always imagined moving there for my studies but obviously priorities and goals change over time and lets not forget having to consider the other half as well as the fam bam. Even still, it has never been far from my mind to possibly make the bold move. Until then, I’m more than happy to make excuses to continually visit :P

So with my home away from home in mind, I thought I would share a couple of fun snaps from mine and Chin’s trip there. I’ve also decided to go there again after my birthday in October YAY!!!

Since Melbourne’s weather has four seasons in a day, I found it fun playing dress up to cater to the crazy weather – Coat one day and dress the next. Walking around and exploring, we were definitely getting our tourist on, it was only fitting to choose comfort as the way to go. This meant sneakers, free flowing skirts, soft cotton and stretchy fabrics making winning combinations.

Thanks for visiting !!!

I’ll see you on Saturday with another outfit post :D

Reebonz in Sydney celebrated their first flagship store birthday and the launch of their new consignment service last month. the Reebonz 1st Birthday Party Event was held at their flagship store just in front of Town Hall in the heart of Sydney CBD, I was so ecstatic to be attending another one of their amazing events and for their birthday celebrations and Reebonz did not all disappoint. Red carpet, luxury bags, celebrity bloggers, not to mention being greeted by an abundance of vibrant flowers and did I mention there was CAKE!!!! (hahahaha such a glutton).

It honestly felt like I had died and gone to a heaven filled with YSL, Celine, Hermés, Chanel, served endless canapés, champaign and continuous blossoming roses. Everyone was so lovely (which, is nothing more than I would expect from the Reebonz organizers who are kind hearted and genuinely lovely people), the environment was so welcoming and warm I almost didn’t want to leave….EVER! hehehe!

Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton from They all Hate Us hosted the event and though I was far to shy to introduce myself, I saw how down to earth and kind they were. Camille from Frilly Skirts, was also at the event and she was the CUTEST when she introduced herself to them, I swear she was so overwhelmed but they ended up taking selfies with her. See, I told you they were lovely!!!

For the event Reebonz even had their very own fashion show with the beautiful models wearing all but white, strutting around with Reebonz finest on their arms. This event was actually the first time I had to ride solo without my photographer/partner and OH did I feel naked hahaha! I have just recently started taking photography in my fashion course and he thought it would be a good time to throw me in the deep end eeek! hahaha! I apologise for some of the photos, all the good ones are officially Reebonz photos (thank goodness to that!). I’m slowly getting better so hopefully in my future posts you’ll see some improvement hehehe.

Finally Happy Birthday to Reebonz and lets have many more to come!!

Thank you again for visiting and I’ll see you this weekend with an outfit post ;)

It is a daunting thing going to Fashion Week as a new blogger, I found myself asking so many questions; what do I do, what do I say, how do I start a conversation and most importantly WHAT WAS I GOING TO WEAR!!!!?

What was even more intimidating was that I didn’t know anyone going, except for my boyfriend/photographer Chin, who would be in the media pit for most of Fashion Week taking the photos for the runway shows.
I found myself questioning everything about myself; the way I talk, the way I act, my style, I was even insecure about how I laughed.  I mean, yes…… I know I have the tendency to overthink and stress about nothing but this was a probably the biggest event that I have ever gone to and studying fashion, I was not going to take it lightly.

I had always seen myself as someone who is quite confident, comfortable in my own skin and not caring much about what someone else thinks, however, this was such a true test to my character. I had felt like it was the first day of high school all over again, wanting so badly to be accepted and to fit in. By the second day, all these insecurities had taken a toll on me emotionally, I had realised that I was trying so hard to fit in that I started to loose sight of the personality that I so proudly wore and the self expressive style which made me feel comfortable in my own skin. Even Chin noticed a uncomfortable change in me, I mean, what can I say, when you are surrounded by so many gorgeous people and models with a flawless aesthetic and impeccable style the feeling of insignificance is inevitable. I am so grateful though that I had him there, he reminded me about what was important and the reason I had taken the time out to commit myself to the event. I was able to shake myself out of it and start anew, without having such expectations weighing so heavily on me.

The third day into Fashion Week, I woke up that morning and stopped caring about what other people thought of me. Instead, I did what I wanted to do, wore what I wanted to wear and laughed the way I wanted to laugh (even though sometimes I sound like a dying donkey hahaha!). I realised that I wasn’t questioning myself, because of the way people treated me or the way they judged me, if anything most people were down to earth and really easy to approach. It was me being my own enemy; I was the one who was holding myself back and I was the one who started to change myself into what I thought would be accepted when all along it was fine being myself. Once again my insecurities had almost gotten the best of me but this time I’d like to think of myself as the victor.

I guess what I’m trying to share with you is that, just like everyone else’s life, everything is not always rainbows and butterflies and I would be lying if I said I was perfect. In my previous posts I have shared with you what I had seen at Fashion Week and who I had met, I thought it was also important to be truthful and share how I had felt during the whole experience. It was such an amazing opportunity and what I personally took away from Fashion Week was that it is important to stay true to who you are, stay grounded and don’t be afraid to be you. You know what they say “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”

Anyways, enough of the serious chatter, now for some visual communication, here are the outfits I wore at Fashion Week, There is one more outfit that I will be posting from that week so keep an eye out for it :)

Thanks again for visiting everyone and I hope have an amazing weekend !!!
