Hi guys I thought I would share with you all the outfits I wore in 2011. I actually thought I did more outfit posts than this but I must have gotten a little slack sorry.. I'll post more next year I promise!

I've really learned a lot about my style from doing these posts and can't wait to see how next year's outfits will compare.

I'd be interested to know what your thoughts are and which outfit you liked most (if any)?


PS. I hope you had an amazing christmas

Leave the pieces when you go..




Barkins dress - got at clothes swap party, Felt cardigan, Betts heels, OPI russian navy


Woah how white do my legs look in these photos!? :O I swear they're not that white in real life.. okay maybe they are haha! I'll have to fake tan them asap!

I love this dress, I picked it up at a friend's clothes swap party a few months ago. Clothes swap parties are so fun and are such a great idea! I can't wait for the next one.

Today has been a pretty chilled day. Rob and I met up with my best friend and her boyfriend for lunch, then we went shopping to try and find a suit for rob to wear to our wedding (I can't believe he's 28 and doesn't own a suit!). He found a few nice one's but ran out of time to try any on.. ah well plenty of time.. the wedding's not til april!

Now I think I'm just gonna have a bath and watch a few new episodes of misfits (it's not the same without nathan though - boo!).

My Skincare Routine

I'm trying desperately to perfect my skincare routine leading up to the wedding and so far I've found some products I'm in love with and some others that are so-so. I was going to wait until I perfected my skincare routine before sharing it with you but then I thought hey.. you may be able to recommend some amazing products to me so why wait!

I do mix things up occasionally when I try new things from my sample boxes but generally these are the products I'll use..


If I go to the gym before work, I'll use Garnier's caffeine eye roll-on under my eyes so I don't scare off people when I get there haha. I don't wear this on a regular day though because it peels off when I put my foundation on which is annoying.


In the shower I use the Pevonia Botanica cleanser for combination skin. This is one of those so-so products. It's an okay product, but isn't worth the price ($67) in my opinion.


..and use it with my Clarasonic Mia - which I LOVE and has made my skin super soft!


After my shower I spray the Pevonia Botanica lotion (aka toner) for combination skin directly onto my face. This is nice and refreshing but again not worth the price ($28).


Once that's dried I use my all-time favourite product.. b.liv's off with those heads blackhead gel. This stuff is amazing! It's THE BEST at getting rid of pimples and little bumps, I can't live without it.


After that I put on Neutrogena's healthy defence daily moisturiser, I like this moisturiser for day-to-day because it's SPF 30+. I think I'll need to get another matte moisturiser though for the wedding and to wear at night because this one doesn't photograph very well.



I use MAC's cleanse off oil to remove my eye makeup, I don't use it on my face because it breaks me out. It's also not very good at removing my makeup, but I don't want to waste it so I'm using it up before buying something better to replace it with.


I use Cetaphil on the rest of my face. Cetaphil is my go to cleanser, it's great for removing makeup and is gentle on my skin.


Then I use Kora's luxurious rosehip oil, which I think is okay. I really love rosehip oil but I prefer the endota spa one cause it's alot cheaper and gives me the same result.


After that I use Avon's Anew clinical eye lift. I was really hoping I would love this product (because I've heard such great things) but I don't. It makes my eye sting and water up (hence why I don't use it in the mornings).


I then pop some Avon Anew clinical derma-full on the rest of my face. I like this product but probably won't repurchase it because I don't LOVE it.



2 or 3 times a week I'll use Clean & Clear's deep action in-shower facial. I use it in the morning after I've cleansed my face using my clarasonic. I LOVE how it makes my skin glow and would recommend it to anyone.


When my skin is feeling irritated, I'll use one of the EmerginC hydra-repair capsules (before bed). These were NOT cheap ($90) but were a saviour when my skin when crazy a few months ago (alot of breakouts, redness & dry patches). I wouldn't repurchase though unless my skin went crazy again :)


Once a month I like to use a cloth mask, at the moment I'm using B.liv's immerse me silk masks.. but I tend to try new ones all the time.


So there you have it!

Let me know what you think and if you have any product recommendations for me I'd love to hear them!
