You must have been living under a rock if you haven’t spotted the oversized, boyfriend-style jumper trend. I wanted to rock this look when I went to VAMFF, but the postman wasn’t my friend that weekend and my delivery didn’t make it in time. Enter middle finger emoji here.
At first I thought to myself, ‘you look like a dickhead Zee!’. But then I thought, well, the Kardashians & Jenners are doing it, so that makes me soooo fashion, right?
Guess what guys – I may have failed at pilaf, but I’ve only gone and made a successful risotto! Just ask Jess from @abrokegirlwithexpensivetaste. As bloggers, we get invited to a bunch of events and get sent alllllll the delicious goodies to trial on the regular – it’s all in the name of content, right ladies? I know, I know, it’s such a hard life!
In all honesty, I love this lifestyle, but am starting to put on a few extra KGs. 8 of the buggers, to be exact.
I love Googling healthy recipes, and I recently signed up to The Healthy Mummy newsletter.
There are so many success stories on the website, and it’s packed with delicious recipes that you wouldn’t believe are weightloss-worthy! So, I thought I would put one to the test and try out some new foodie blogger mail goodies while I was at it.
If I’m honest, ever since I got engaged I’ve been a little boring in the jewellery department. I used to have so much fun with ‘junk jewellery’ (as my mother would call it), but there is nothing cute about a bluish-green stain around your fingers, ladies. So I chose to stop buying items that will rust that end up in the bin!
So now I just wear an expensive diamond, haha. Such a simple lady that I am, eh? Jokes aside though, he did really well… But as much as I adore my first diamond, it’s time to rebuild my jewellery box with quality, timeless pieces that are still fun.
If you haven’t noticed the monogramming trend over the last 2 years, you’ve definitely been living under a rock. Think The Daily Edited, Mon Purse; even Peter Alexander and Cotton On are on the personalised wagon! Now you know what I’m talking about, surely you’ve seen it on your Instagram feed.?
Uncle Jack watches follow on with this trend being the first brand in the watch industry to offer monogramming. I really am a sucker for anything personalised, but as I am not going to be a ‘Hassan’ forever, I usually choose ZM (M being my partners name). I love that I can look down and see our initials. I am such a cutie, hey!
I am so excited and a little nervous to share this post with you all. I had the opportunity to try out Lipo Freeze at Smart Skin Clinics Coolaroo.
I have my own body demons like many. I have always hated my thighs. I have always been more bottom heavy. My thighs have made me cry. I don’t wear jeans because I feel like I look so big in them. I literally live in leggings and wear the occasional ‘jegging’ but still feel so self-conscious.
I had the pleasure of attending the @nextofficial_au runway with my fabulous girlfriends. Let’s just say a delivery stuff up caused me to just throw anything on (yep a jumper, skirt, glasses, and ‘party shoes’ Voila #sofashion #whatthefuckamiwearing
Last year I was kindly gifted a pack of household care items from Modere.
Modere stocks all the goods us ladies love, from haircare, skincare, makeup to protein bars and even probiotic support. Let’s not forget our men ladies.. there is even items for the lads, dads and brothers in our lives. How did I come across this company? #instagram. So what was in my gift pack?
So it’s that time of the year again where Melbourne’s finest come out to play! Who’s excited for Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival? I sure am! Ever since I was a little volunteer at the festival I just feel in love with the entire event.
After being super jealous of all the gorgeous selfies being posted on my Instagram feed of ladies and gents applying the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Masks it was time for me to put this little pot of genius to the test!
I was kindly gifted the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Detoxifying + Brightening Charcoal Mask. I could not wait to apply this to my face. I simply used a foundation brush to basically paint my face. The texture was not as thick as I thought it would be and rather smooth and refreshing.
I was pretty excited when the lovely people at Blys pronounced ‘bliss’ contacted me to have a complimentary massage to feature on my blog.. how could any blogger say no to that? #theperkshey.
It has been around 5-6 years since I’ve shamelessly had my last massage. It’s not that I don’t enjoy a massage. I am always gifting friends and family members a pamper session, yet I won’t book myself one!
When it comes to styling a home I am no pro. It’s bloody hard work. I am three months into styling our first home and I just feel like so much is missing! I don’t know what to buy, what goes with what, do I want some colour? I am pretty lost at the moment but I am so lucky to have some expert help.
It’s an honour to have Christie Turvey from NEUE BLVD shares her top Tips and Tricks to make your space instantly stylish and chic.
After seeing Nadia Bartel in the Mirelle Dress by Misha Collection I just feel in love with the detailing of the dress, the gold tones along with the length and not to mention convenient arm straps. My arms might be thin but they are getting cellulite on them (joys hey) as I have no boobs I just look broad in anything strapless (the off the shoulder trend is truly a blessing for my broad sisters out there).
If you follow my blog, you would know I have just moved into my new home. Prior to this move, I was living with my mum. Basically, she did everything for me for the last 28 years. I’m talking cleaning, cooking, picking my clothes up off my floor-drobe, and of course, the dreaded ironing.
I have received my fair share of flowers from my fiancé over the last 5 years. He sure spoils me in the floral department! There is nothing more special than receiving a beautiful bunch of flowers – you’re the envy of all your office pals, and of course you get an epic Instagram shot.
I love sending my friends and mama a bunch of flowers on their birthdays, or just randomly to brighten their day. It’s the little things, y’know?
Derby Day is the start of the four day race days that make The Melbourne Cup Carnival. I unfortunately can’t attend this year as I am moving into our new home, but to all you ladies who are attending and need some outfit inspiration from a amateur fashion blogger, (moi) you have come to the right place.
If you haven’t had a chance to read my post on the Caulfield Cup then visit the page here. I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and organise a shoot with Bianca Lamont, a brilliant Melbourne photographer I met via Pedestrian TV. I have always loved fashion, I have got it wrong and I am sure I will continue to get it wrong and that’s okay but I think I got it right on this occasion. But you be the judge?
I am so excited to share this post with you all. Those who know me well know I am obsessed with attending the races. I have been attending the Caulfield Cup over the last few years. A few years back I volunteered with Starlight Foundation and just fell in love with the racecourse. It’s a lot smaller than Flemington and the vibe is a lot more relaxed and fun.
This year I will be attending Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day and Caulfield Cup, a week apart! Apologies to my feet in advance, ouch!
Who doesn’t love a beautiful soap? I find the best ones at local markets when I go away on a little staycation. Soaps make amazing features in the bathroom or in your linen draw or even a brilliant little last minute gift for a loved one. As you all know I am loving a DIY lately so enjoy my DIY soaps below- it’s so easy ladies.
What you need:
• 6 pack of plain soap. I got mine for $2 from Coles.
• Candle/Soap moulds (could also use a muffin tray)
• Dry flowers (I used some dry lavender I had laying around the house) Fresh flowers, rose petals would look so pretty.
• Diffuser oil (Euphoria) scent of choice lovelies.
I am so excited to announce that I am now a creative contributor to one of my favourite blogs Who Loves That, massive pinch myself moment! I am such a fan of Emma from her style to her DIY projects to her recent wedding. Emma inspires me when it comes to blogging and now she is kinda my boss! So cool.
I look forward to putting together some fun content for a new audience and working with photographers and creating some magic for you all.
Take a look at my DIY coffee scrub which featured on Who Loves That here. I thought I would also share it below for you to try.
As always, when receiving blogger mail, the excitement is next level and I can’t wait to try my goodies and share them with you guys. Yep, I’ve been blogging for over a year, but I’m still like a kid at Christmas when my blogger mail arrives!
My hair is shocking. Seriously, it just has no life! I wash it once a week, I go to the gym, and generally it looks like a mop on the daily. Sigh. Everyone seems to be obsessed with dry shampoo. I have tried a few but haven’t really added it to my beauty routine. Until now.
When getting my makeup done professionally, I never let the make up artist colour my eyebrows in.
I have only recently started getting my eyebrows tinted lighter.
I literally do my makeup and don’t touch my eyebrows, except the occasional little bit hair spray or gel, if I have any.
OMG! I am human. Who doesn’t have a few little whiskers on their upper lip?! I am sure there are a few – #envy, but not many!
Being half Turkish I have a little hair growth, which I am taking care of with laser. Unfortunately laser on my upper lip has been frustrating, as it’s not taking full effect like it is on the rest of my body. Annoying, I know.
So, I am one of those people who doesn’t invest in expensive, high-end hair products. I use ‘supermarket bands’ – don’t judge me! I only really buy products when I am getting my hair done. After paying $400 for foils, what’s another $70, right?! So I get sucked in, buy good hair products, promise myself I’ll stick to it, and then don’t! I am sure I am not alone, ladies!
