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.
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.
Although the international music acts are meant to be a festival’s main attraction, we can’t deny that our main focus is the festival looks that are on show. Festivalgoers go above and beyond to create the perfect look, and no look is perfect without the right makeup.
Whether you want to be a glittering goddess or an indie princess INGLOT Australia have your festival makeup look sorted!
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!?
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?
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!
The after-meal clean up can pose quite the challenge, with differing opinions about the most efficient and effective methods. If your kitchen is equipped with a handy dishwasher, you might consider yourself one of the following types…an expert Tetris-style dish stacker, a dedicated pre-wash rinser or believe that glassware on the lower rack is the ultimate cleaning sin! If this sounds all too familiar, there are a few tips and tricks from experts at Whirlpool Corporation that can take the guesswork and bother out of cleaning your dishes…
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…
It was another extremely hard day at Insincerely Her HQ when the lovely people at Duo Boots asked me to blog about their gorgeous footwear. #BestJobEver
I was invited to choose a pair of boots of my choice, so I went for the Raven Suede Knee High. A style that, if I’m honest, I haven’t purchased for years simply because I struggle to find the right fit for my calves.
The ultimate blogger accessory for me lately has been an awesome phone case. I’ll be honest, I used to hate phone cases. Abissle had something to do with that. (You will only understand that line if you work with me hehe.)
After a few too many smashed iPhones over the last 12 months, it was time to take action and save the world one iPhone screen at a time.
Those that know me would know I love a beverage or two. I am constantly carrying a bottle of wine (okay, maybe two) when I head round to friends’ houses on the weekend. I also spend my fair share of time in hotels (#bloggerlyf) so I’m always sneaking a bottle into hotel rooms. Ain’t nobody got time for the price of hotel minibars am I right?
A short but rather sweet post of my bunny Christina Grey and I. Featuring the Funny Bunny Brooch from Erstwilder, these pics are tooooo cute not to share!
Can’t handle a real bunny as a pet? (I don’t blame you, they’re crazy!) Well my loves, I have the answer. These gorgeous brooches from Erstwilder are the best way to show your love of animals without, well, chasing them around your lounge room! Shop here.
Christmas in July seems to be a thang! I mean, for me personally, getting one Christmas together is hard enough, let alone two – that’s a no from me. But if you’re keen to carry on the Christmas spirit for those who are celebrating Christmas in July, why not get a little creative and attempt my DIY Christmas Bon Bons?
We all know a table is not complete without everyone’s favourite bon bons. I find the hats and bad dad jokes a little terrible to be honest, and let’s not even talk about the terrible prize on the inside. But still, they’re tradition, right? These bon bons are more for a girly Christmas get together, but you can put anything in them to suit your guest’s personalities.
As I am in my late 20s (cringe) I’ve found myself starting to take more care in terms of the quality of what I buy, particularly handbags. When I was a youngster, I would be buying everything on sale in every colour and style just so I had a massive collection of handbags – tell me I’m not the only one!
If I’m perfectly honest, this is a post I have been dreading writing. For those who follow me on social media, you’d have seen me expose my fat to the world. YEP! Over 2k of you have watched me suck my guts and thunder thighs up in hope of reduced fat.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch the video, check it via my Instagram here.
I was so overwhelmed by all the interest and I can’t say I blame you! We all want a quick fix, don’t we?
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.
