Outfits of 2012


Hey lovelies, sorry for the picture heavy post, but I wanted to share with you all the outfits I wore in 2012 (I've even included the bummy ones from overseas - where I LIVED in my thongs! haha).

I always find it interesting looking back at the things I wore, some outfits I still like and others I'm like.. "what was I thinking!?".

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

I still don't think I've quite worked out what my style is yet. I mean I know what I like and I know what I don't like but I'm not sure if I can describe my style in a word.

How about you? Can you describe your style in a word?


PS. I hope you all have an amazing time celebrating the new year!!

Christmas Wishlist

It's that time of the year again, and isn't it magical? I never used to get into Christmas but over the last few years I've really gotten into the spirit, putting up the christmas tree, listening to christmas albums and decorating my desk at work. I even don't care that it's daggy... it's fun!!

I always daydream about what I'd love to get for Christmas, so I thought I'd put this wishlist together of all the things I've been pining for lately. Not that I'm expecting to get any of them, but a girl can dream right?

I'm just looking forward to spending some quality time with my friends and family.

What about you? What's on your Christmas Wishlist?

Falling to Pieces

1 fdjsafdsj IMG_4465 v2 IMG_4520

Topshop Denim Shirt, Topshop Black Skater Dress, Airflex Booties, Parliament Bracelet, Vintage Guess Watch,
OPI Alpine Snow Nailpolish

I picked up this denim shirt from topshop in Melbourne, it was surprisingly the only thing I bought from there! I was expecting to buy a tonne but I found most things were a little overpriced and nothing really stood out to me (except for this denim shirt of course!). Denim shirts are an absolutely staple for me in Spring and Summer. They're lightweight, versatile and give your outfit a chic laidback vibe.

I'm over the moon for my sister and her fiance who have decided to get married next March in Fiji. They are the most adorable couple and I couldn't be happier for them both. Rob and I just booked our flights and accommodation and can't wait to go. I love spending time with my family (as sad as that sounds) and I just know my sister's wedding will be beautiful. She's been overseas for the last 7 months and I've been missing her so much! She gets back in a few weeks though so I won't have to miss her for much longer.

I hope you're all having an amazing week!

Derby Day 2012

IMG_1328 IMG_1346 IMG_1392 IMG_1384 8 4 IMG_1403

Hey lovelies, I thought I would share some pics with you from Derby Day (last weekend). Sorry it's taken me so long to post them! I think I've still been recovering this week haha. This was the first time I've been to Derby Day and it was so much fun!! It was even better than I thought it would be!

The girls and I booked one of the Derby Day cruises (which we paid extra for) and it was so worth it as we could go back onto the boat whenever we felt like it for gourmet food and drinks, away from the crowd and the hot sun.

I really want to go again next year and would definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn't been before. Just make sure you pace yourself as it's a BIG day!

I'm going to Melbourne this weekend with the girls and I'm so excited!! We're going to Derby Day (Annual Horse Race) on Saturday and I can't wait!!

I'm also really looking forward to going shopping! Melbourne is the best place to shop in Australia in my opinion and one place I'm really looking forward to going to is Topshop. I've picked out a couple of things I'd looooooooove the get! Although these are all from the UK site so not sure if they'll have them in Australia.. but I'm sure there will be TONNES of amazing things for me to choose from while I'm there.

I'm really looking forward to getting away for the weekend.. It's going to be so much fun!

I'll be sure to share all my happy snaps with you when I get back :)

Have you heard of Popbasic yet?


If not.. let me fill you in!

Popbasic is kind of like the beauty sample boxes but with clothes and accessories instead! How cool is that!? I'm so excited about it and can't wait for the first parcel to become available.

So each month they release a mini-collection of three items (two trend pieces and one basic) along with a beauty or lifestyle surprise. So you can follow the trends while building your collection of wardrobe staples.

The package is delivered to your door each month for around $50-$100 depending on the items. The good thing is though, you don't need to purchase the collection each month (unlike the beauty sample boxes) you can just purchase it whenever it tickles your fancy or if you'd prefer, you can purchase the items individually.

Plus they offer free shipping to Australia and the US! Woohoo!

To get an idea of what the pieces will look like, here are some pics from their first collection (which will be launched in December - so verrry soon!)-




I can sooooooooo see myself wearing these pieces!! Especially that yellow necklace. Eeeep im so excited!!

What do you think? Will you be signing up?
