Primary school, a blissful habitation where I was so assured my twenty one year old self would have it all covered. At the ripe old age of twenty one years and seven months I can inform you without hesitation this is not the case.
The world is bigger and scarier than ever and the direction I am heading isn’t necessarily the one I have always dreamed of.
What is it that gives us the ability to know something is right?
To know something is our purpose?
To know if the person we love is actually ‘the one’?
I find with each passing month I have more pressure, more questions and fewer answers. At the time many of us are starting to begin a more planned and structured future, mine seems to hold more curve balls than anything else.
I owe you an apology… I’m so sorry I haven’t been active as much as I usually am on here. Between launching my you tube channel, podcast and my blog I have really felt a bit overwhelmed. But enough of that! It has been a hot minute since we spoke so here are some life updates.
I have got an interview for my dream job next week which if I land I get to go to Melbourne for training!! ANNDDD It’s a job in fashion.. I know *dying*
This job will mean however I will need to say farewell to my manager’s job at my current employment – I do feel like it is well and truly my time to leave though.
In other news, my Europe trip is coming up fast and I’m beyond excited for it. But God it is expensive!
Super nervous but I’ve just uploaded my first youtube it would be so amazing if you guys could chuck it a view and maybe even a like or comment so we can all get involved! Send me links to your stuff I’d love to support you too!!
A quick post today! I just wanted to say thankyou! yes you! Thankyou for taking time out to hear what I have to say. This is so much fun for me I enjoy it all, work and uni can be so testing at times so I love having this supportive escape! If you have social media you’d like me to check out leave it in the comments I’d LOVE to see what you are upto!
It has been a hot minute since we last spoke, I have been neck deep in my handbag obsession. If you’re anything like me.. when you get onto a good thing you go crazy for it! Right now I’ve broken the cardinal rule of fashion lovers and have delve into the market of fake designer bags! I know, I heard you gasp!!
Alas, not all of us are Jaclyn Hill or Kylie Jenner so the price of a Hermes bag is just a little far stretched. I have come across a site called ‘Ioffer’ – You’re welcome! It is a online store with thousands of sellers that create replica bags from brands you love: Channel, Gucci, Prada and so many more!
It does take a expert to spot a good seller so I urge you to read the reviews before purchasing anything however I do have to say for the AUD$25 you’re paying you can’t be too mad.
Below I’ve left some of my current orders – I’ll do a full site review when my order arrives! -Happy shopping my fashion lovers!!
As one very wise woman said (tay tay) everything was grey. This is well and truly the colour of Winter 2018. I see trend after trend incorporating grey into their pieces and it is the best statement neutral I’ve come across. My favourite grey piece at the moment is my The Daily Edited monogrammed bag. It’s so compact, on trend and is so practical. My main reason behind this bag was for my Europe trip in December but I can’t get enough of it right now! Grey is a great way to take your outfit from blah to ahh real quick! Boots and wide hats are another win in my eyes. Below I’ve linked some of my favourite combinations, let me know what you think!
Let’s talk winter wardrobe! When it comes to seasonal dressing let me just tell you I could not love winter more! I am here to offer my top tips and tricks to be the friend others flick snapchats to for outfit approval and being branded the ‘trendy friend’.
1 word lovers, Pintrest!
This is the holy grail, this site lets you search outfits and create boards where you can find inspo, I personally create them per season then whip it out during my shopping sprees to find similar outfits! It works a treat in finding outfits that can be paired with lots of different looks .. I vary rarely get seen wearing the same outfit twice because of this sneaky technique, finding accessories make or break an outfit!
This season I’ve found some of the on trend check products you can find from vogue, Harper’s Bazar and Elle on the cheap. Winter is the season you can say hell yes to whipped cream on your hot chocolate without everyone seeing it a day later, thanks to that gorgeous coat you just spent your last 3 pay checks on from Marcs.
For my Aussie readers, ‘The Iconic’ has some affordable options. I’m talking these Steels heels for only $30 and if you’re really in the mood to treat yourself I found these stunning boots in ‘Fashion Bunker’ (and yes they’re online too). Your Check flare does not only have to be on your feet though, I love going all black and a checked skirt, very chic and fashion forward without drawing attention to yourself like you just stepped off the ‘MSGM’ runway.
When it comes to standing out as fashion forward but not wanting the .. “okay too far factor” I suggest making your accessories the wow factor. From those tassel earrings, to those dusk shoes let them be your self-expression.
