Who doesn’t love a great pair of shoes? Flats, heels, open-toed or closed-toed shoes? There’s so many to choose from. For the ultimate fashionista in you, there are some shoes which are “must-have’s” for any wardrobe. These are a few great shoes every woman would love to own.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll be constantly saving beautiful images from Instagram and Pinterest feeds for inspiration – especially events! From floral arrangements and table settings, to centerpieces and favours, you name it, I’ve saved it! Believe me, all my screenshots or saved items on Instagram come in handy (even though my partner may disagree!). I refused to get rid of 16k photos from my last iPhone – but that’s a story for another time.
So as the festive season is slowing winding down, for us bloggers the event season is just getting started. It’s a hard life being invited to events you know? The grazing platters, free-flowing sparkling, the goodie bags. The blog world can be lots of fun but hard work on the footsies especially when you’re running from event to event or running to top up your parking meter. Our poor feet do sadly suffer.
So the mailman sometimes doesn’t like to cooperate with my expected deliveries. Over the buildup to the Christmas break, I have had some items delayed, lost or still in transit. Sadly this happened to my expected package from Scout Cosmetics where I had to create a holiday makeup look for you lovely ladies which would have been perfect for Chrissy lunch.
Girls, if you’re anything like me, you’re always struggling to find something to wear. Ladies of Australia, I know you’re nodding your heads in agreement! That ‘nothing to wear’ phrase should have been my motto of 2017.
I am no sparkling connoisseur, but more of a sparkling appreciator. So basically I can sure down a few glasses – know what I mean, ladies?! It’s my go-to drink during silly season, so that makes me an appreciator in my opinion.
Who’s excited about the next few months of boozing?! I sure am. I love entertaining and playing host to my friends and family, but sometimes, a drink up can be a little expensive – especially after all that Christmas shopping. Know what I mean?
Once upon a time, I used to love wrapping gifts. Now, I personally find the entire process a drainer. That was until I heard about Greetings From Hell on the drive home from work! If you’re a foul mouth like me, and love giving your gifts a cheeky twist, you will love this store as much as I do.
How many of us ladies watch beauty or hair tutorials whilst getting ready for a night out? I absolutely love a tutorial but hate that I have to bend my neck to watch, or hold my phone whilst doing my face with one hand – you’re set for a epic fail on that winged eyeliner, trust me!
Hello December, I think you have come around a little too quick my friend! Anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed? I SURE AM! As we are at the end of the year, it’s nothing but finalising work commitments, running around like crazy getting last minute xmas gifts, having to attend multiple get-togethers whilst battling mental health and running a blog – I am a little on the AHHHH side of things… who’s with me?
Moving house can be overwhelming and while it can be tempting to just pack up everything you own, it can be a great opportunity for a clear out. Not only will it make your move easier (and cheaper), you won’t be cluttering up your new home!
A woman can never have too many lipsticks, right? Well, unless you’re me. I have so many amazing lippies that have been sent to me. #guilty #beautybloggerproblems
Just ask anyone in my office. On Fridays I rock up to work looking like I’ve swallowed an oompa loompa!
I just love fake tan and I won’t go to an event, or risk showing my legs, without one.
Christmas parties don’t have to be stressful with these simple entertaining ideas.
The silly season is here and Christmas is literally around the corner – but it doesn’t have to be stressful in the kitchen.
Why not try these simple ideas as hor’dourves or something quick and quirky for the kids?
I recently attended the launch of Charles + Lee and was thrilled with their skincare offering for men. From the packaging and the price point, to their latest accomplishment (being stocked in Myer #roundofapplause) I just had to share some of the goodies available in their range.
It’s December, and I know you’re being bombarded with #blogmas content and gift guides left, right, and center. But I promise it’ll all be over soon and before you know it we’ll be working on all that Easter content. (Yay, to bunny season!) I wasn’t going to do a gift guide for the above reason, seeing as every blogger is doing it. Saying that – these pics were too gorgeous not to share.
I can’t believe it’s been just over a year since I moved out of my parents’ house and into my own little space with my fiancé. I had zero-knowledge on how to style a home. And it sure is a tougher gig than putting an outfit together.
I have been obsessed with scarves for years, and I think I have my mama to thank for this.
Just ask any of my co-workers, the 9-5er in me is not the glamourous gal you see on Instagram. And I have scarves to thank for quickly dressing up my signature work attire, of leggings and a plain black top, as well as conveniently disguising my belly.
Ho, ho, ho, it’s Christmaaaaaas! Which for most of us loosely translates as ‘no no no, it’s time to spend two week’s wages on poorly thought out gifts for people because society says so’.
I feel ya.
When you have been sitting on your ass in the office since you were 19! If you’re anything like me, your back can get a little on the hunch and ache side. There is seriously nothing worse than back pain. Who agrees?
I came across Pranamat Eco via my Instagram feed and just had to try it out.
Can you believe we have finally hit Summer ladies? It’s time to lighten our hair, tan our skin and enjoy an amazing Australian Summer!
I am excited to be part of the Scout cosmetics VIP club. I decided to take part in this purely to push my make-up skills (as they’re a little boring), work with a great company and try out some amazing new products to share with you all.
When Zerin asked if I could help her with some skincare reviews, I jumped at the chance. Since I reached the ripe old age of 26, skincare has been on my mind almost as often as Connoisseur White Chocolate and Raspberry ice cream – and that means A LOT.
It wasn’t until I looked back at older photos that I realised that my face is actually starting to do that thing you never think it will. Lines that would previously stretch themselves away are hangin’ around a lil bit too long for my liking, and basically I just look a bit crap all the time.
Thanks for the invite Sasha.

Anyone else guilty of loving a lazy dinner during the week? After a long day at the office, the last thing I want to do is cook up a gourmet meal and end up with a bunch of pots and pans to clean up – know what I mean?
This is my first year spring cleaning: ugh, adult life, hey! It’s been just over a year since I moved out of my parents home and into my own and wow, it does get overwhelming – especially in the beginning. I will write more about my first year out of home in the coming weeks, but for now I am here to help you get your house sorted and make a few extra bucks in the process. With Christmas approaching, that’s a win-win if you ask me!
Before you start your spring clean, get yourself a coffee and a sweet playlist to have on in the background. I put my phone away – no distractions! – and light my favourite candle to clear my mind and get me in the right head space. I tell myself I am going to get this done and not crash onto my bed crying cause I am over it! Not even kidding, that’s defo happened before.
Use essential oils like a goddess and still have a penchant for Prada.
There’s a saying that essential oil users whip out more often that a credit card, which is, “there’s an oil for that!”
Eaten too much sourdough, fried saganaki, cronuts, megashakes and topped it off with a few too many wines/tequila shots? (Every bloggers diet right?) Fear not for your food baby, we’ve got an oil for that, DigestZen.
There is nothing I love more then a little stay-cay in your own city. For me that’s the beautiful city of Melbourne. I love to spend a weekend at Crown Metropol or my favourite hotel, The Cullen. Packing for a weekend can be difficult, especially with Melbourne’s unpredictable weather.
