Playsuits time

Summer time is approaching here in Australia; yay for warmer weather! I can wear playsuits, except my very white legs are still in winter mode. I love when I can wake up and take my dog for a walk without seeing my breath in the air. It's pretty great to also to just chuck on a dress or playsuit in the morning, it definitely saves of lot of time for me getting ready in the morning. I'm one of those people who stares at their closet each morning ummming and ahhhing about what to wear. I will pick an outfit, then decide to I'll try something else on. This indecisiveness is the cause of a lot of my late arrivals. Oops. 

The warmer weather means less layers and more free flowing attire. We can ditch the long sleeves for t-shirts and jeans for skirts or shorts. Also, our winter coats and jackets can be farewelled and we welcome our bikinis back. I have noticed that during the time of summer, body jewellery becomes more prominent, especially in regards to bikinis (belly piercings = everywhere). Many of my female friends have body piercings; nose and belly button. I've noticed that before approaching the swimwear season finding the right belly piercing is pivotal. I was recently introduced FreshTrends; a body jewellery store and of course had to tell my body pierced friends about it. So now for them the hunt is on for their summer nose/belly piercing.

Do you have any body piercings? How do you get ready for summer?

My everyday jewellery


Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bangle: h&m, Bracelet: Tiffany & Co., Rings: h&m (I think)

Everyday before I leave my house I always grab my bag, phone, car keys and of course all the jewellery pieces I keep on my bedside table. These include my watch, two bracelets and using a couple of rings. Wearing jewellery daily is a routinised part of many people lives. It has become habitual for me to put on all the pieces before leaving the house and it's one of my favourite morning habits. 

Jewellery pieces can hold a sentimental value and also bring another element to outfits (especially on those days where I have woken up late resulting in a very simple and lazy look). I love adding pieces of jewellery to my collection, whether they become part of my everyday look or if they are more of an occasional piece. I recently found an online store name Anjolee that stocks a wonderful range of beautiful and elegant pieces, including diamond studs. For me the Anjolee pieces would be occasional pieces that I would wear for nicer events such as a wedding or nice dinner. Here are some of my favourite bracelets from their range.

Summer is coming!

Cat eye sunnies: Asos
Cami: from a boutique 
Shorts: Asos
Rings & Bracelet: h&m
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Sorry for the poor 'Game of Thrones' reference! I had to.

With Summer fast approaching now here in Australia it time to put away my coats, vest and knit jumpers and make room for lightweight dresses, crop tops, shorts and skirts. Every season I love to add extra pieces to my wardrobe to wear in various different outfits throughout the months. I recently found the online store MsFairy, which stocks a wide range of clothing, but most importantly many potential new pieces to add to my summer wardrobe. Scrolling through their endless skirts, dresses, tops, etc. it made me long for the continued hotter weather. Oh and this jumpsuit!

Japanese Gardens

Jacket: Burberry Brit
Shirt: similar
Jeans: similar
Boots: Tony Bianco (similar)
Sunnies: Asos

Hi there. It’s been quite some time (three months) since I’ve updated my blog. Time has flown by so quickly and so much has happened in university and life in general. I always kept in the back of my mind that I needed to update my blog, but I just never got around to actually sitting down and doing it. Three months later here I am wondering how in the world did I neglect it for so long, alongside my blog email inbox which is filled with unread emails.

Here’s to hoping that a major hiatus like that does not happen again.

The photos above are of the Japanese Gardens in Toowoomba. Toowoomba is a country town in Queensland that I visited during my winter break from University. It was such a pretty sight. I’m not sure if its psychological thing because Japanese Gardens are associated with peace and serenity, but whilst walking around and enjoying the views I honestly did feel so peaceful. Minus the large ducks (I’m terrified of birds) and the chilly wind.

I need that peace and serenity again. Exam time is fast approaching; wish me luck and good luck to all the university and high-school students going through it as well.

Thanks for reading!

New in the closet..

IMG_6851 IMG_6847 IMG_6831 IMG_6834 IMG_6837 IMG_6843
Dress 1: Sea // Dress 2: Burberry // Shorts: Asos // Skirt 1: Asos // Skirt 2: Asos // Overalls: Asos
(all the items are currently on sale #yay)

University holidays have begun, which means that I have more time to fulfill my online shopping addiction. These items being the results of my free time.

I can spend what should be a productive day in front on my laptop screen clicking through endless pages of shirts, trousers, coats etc (essentially every category of fashion). Coinciding with my addiction is my ability to rationalise a ‘need’ for all items of clothing that I take a liking to, when in reality I really do not need them at all.

But addictions are hard to overcome, especially when I am constantly finding new online stores to spend too much browsing through. My latest find is ‘Simons’, which is an online store from Canada. I live in Australia, which unfortunately means that products here are usually more expensive than in other countries; so online stores from abroad that have better prices and low shipping rates are my savior. I love when an online store sells a wide variety of items; fashion and non-fashion related. It makes it easier for shipping but also the convenience in finding everything in one place. So as you can tell I spend way too long on my laptop browsing through ‘Simons’.

Thanks for reading!

Working out with Divissima


Pants: Divissima, Top: Divissima, Shoes: Nike (similar)

I've definitely neglected exercise, my gym membership and a balanced diet lately. I keep saying to myself "okay, I'll start up tomorrow", but then instead of trying to get back into morning runs and hitting the gym I sleep in or think scrolling through Facebook is better use of my time. But seriously, I'm going to get back into it... maybe (I totally did not eat a fabulous burger for lunch).

I found that getting new work-out gear is a motivator for me and fortunately the lovely Divissima sent me new gear. I have a pair of their bikinis, which I love and you can see here. I received a sports bra and pants. I like wearing pants and a tank top over a sports bra whilst working-out, so these pieces were perfect for me. I wore them yesterday during a long walk outside, alongside a jumper and I was kept warm and comfortable. I'l definitely be wearing them again for future work-outs (which will happen! Hopefully).

What do you like wearing for work-outs? Also, what are your work-out habits (hopefully reading them will act a motivator for me)?

Thanks for reading!
