Last-Minute Gift Ideas Series

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.

If you like pina coladas

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.

Unwind with Pranamat

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.

Cool for the Summer

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.

Say HOLA to the NEW HOLA Rose Replenishing Range

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.

My go to toastie

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?

A clean home is a happy home

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.

OMG what do I pack!

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.

Protect your home with Sue Sensi

Those who know me will know I am obsessed with the evil eye. As my father is Turkish, the evil eye is a big belief in our culture. It’s something I really connect with. Evil eye jewellery used to be called ”woggy” but now it’s a massive trend and I think we have Sue Sensi to thank for that.

The ‘Love Your Home’ range is absolutely amazing and I have had lots of fun adding an eye around my home for extra protection – and to keep up with trends, of course.

Get the Perfect Festival look this Summer Festival Season

With the weather heating up and summer just around the corner, we could not be more ready to say goodbye to those freezing winter days. From gorgeous frocks, to frosé on the beach, summer has just about everything we can ask for. And to top it off this year’s summer festival line up is one of the best.

Whether you want to be a glittering goddess or an indie princess INGLOT Australia have your festival makeup look sorted!

The Jacqueline Tote

If you keep up with Insincerely Her, you would have recently read that my mum took a bag from me! If you missed that post, catch up here. I received an email from the lovely people at Kensington and could not stop laughing when I read that they asked if my mama would like to try a bag! It was so adorable! This time, I stole it from her! Now that’s handbag karma!

Picking a handbag is very tough for me! With all that blogger mail I receive, I need a bag that is big enough in size to not only hold all my mail but my tech goodies. My phone, my Acer laptop, my iPhone charger – you name it, it has to go in the bag! We girls carry everything, don’t we!?

Fake It Till Ya Make It

I have always been a lover of fake tan. There is nothing sexy about white pasty legs – unless you’re an English rose! I personally tend to let my beauty regime go a little over winter as it’s just too damn cold to do anything. Anyone else guilty of this?

At Home With Acer

As many of you know, I am an amateur tech nerd, and I really love fashionable technology pieces. I was so excited when I got to work with Acer for the second time after reviewing the amazing Switch Alpha 12. As many of you know I am a Windows baby – definitely not a Mac girl. I may not know the difference between RAM and GB, but I do know a fashionable (and functional) laptop when I see one!

Meet Chloe

Pinch me—I am living my blog dream! It was another hard day in the office when I was asked to pick a pair of shoes from Butterfly Twists to feature on my blog.

What started as a silly bet in 2007 among a few friends turned into a brilliant business venture; voila, Butterfly Twists was born.

I’m constantly looking for the perfect pair of flats not only for work but also because my fiancé and I are kinda the same height (when I’m in flats), and wearing heels can be a bit of a struggle at times. I personally don’t think towering over your partner is a sexy look, unless you’re throwing back to the Bella and Abel days…
