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.
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.
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.
Sometimes I’m in a citrusy kind of mood. Not the freshly cut fruit kind but the moist and perfectly crumbly lemon cake kind. This is the cake I bake when I want to whip up something quick and easy for afternoon tea with friends. Perfect for those new to baking because it’s ridiculously easy to make yet full of beautiful zesty lemon and tropical coconut flavours.
I was recently gifted a Evy Professional E-Curl. It’s been a while since I have used a hair curler as I have been curling my hair with my hair straighter. I thought I would put together a little guide on how to curl your hair and would love to see you all recreate my look. Okay, recreate the famous ‘Khloe K do’.
Jessica from @abrokegirlwithexpensivetaste and I recently collaborated with the very talented makeup artist, Emily. I came across her work on Facebook, and couldn’t wait to see if she would like to collaborate on a look for Halloween.
Over the last decade I have moved around seven times and guess what I am exhausted by it. Moving house can be one of the most stressful days of your life, but we have put together 5 packing and moving tips to help your move go as smoothly as possible!
Like many other Melburnians will tell you, Baroq was the place to be seen on the weekends. I remember having some of my best Fridays there – ah, the memories. (Okay, let’s be honest: the blurred memories, the sweaty hair, the Swanston St maccas runs, coming home reeking of cigarette smoke – hey, it was 2007 and you could roll up a ciggie right there on the dancefloor.)
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.
Have you been keeping up with my Instagram? If so you will have seen all things Turkish as I have been living the Turkish dream over the last few weeks! I recently traveled to Antalya, Bodrum and Istanbul. In true Insincerely Her style, I ate and drank my way around every spot we visited. Here’s a few of my highlights:
