Wish List

Summer Essentials

You know me, I am forever writing wish list that I eventually want to purchase. But by the time I actually come to saving up the money to purchase it they’re a hundred of other things I want to purchase as well. However, here is still my summer essential list that i am determined to purchase to get though this scorching summer.

Some Sunday Afternoon Inspiration

I love spending my lazy sunday afternoons looking at fashion photographs and online shopping. I just love to catch up with what’s in style as well as some inspiration on how to wear your original pieces already hanging in your wardrobe.

As always, I tend to always go straight for black and white as it’s minimal and easy. Here are my favourite images of the afternoon, as well as a few good online buys I found to mirror these looks.

My shopping bag from Melbourne

I went down to Melbourne for two weeks during my university break. As anyone who has been to Melbourne would known the three best things to do in Melbourne are –

1) Eat and Drink
2) Shop, Shop, Shop and more shopping!
3) Check out any current exhibitions down there (I was incredibly lucky to see the Monet exhibition!!!)

I decided to show you guys a few of my favourite things that I got down there.

1) Witchery Sunglasses – These guys are great! They are black and elegant and remind of Audrey Hepburn’s fantastic glasses (if only I have her facial structure!)

2) Witchery ring – This little number sits comfortably on my finger most days now, as it’s simple yet with the chain detailing it creates a very appealing accessory

3) Witchery purse – This black item fits perfectly into my every day, I put my essentials (neurofen, lipstick, papaw etc) in it and keep it in my bag. It’s fantastic because it keeps all those items separate from everything else (books, iPad, phone…. food)

4) Strawberry and cream tea from the oriental tea house – This tea is very sweet (just the way I like it) but you can also have it hot or cold. I like to prepare it and then let it cool over night then drink it through out the day adding a bit of favour to my water (it’s sugar and fat free too)

5) Black and white sports girl top – Well how can you go wrong with navy and white stripes…

6) Black Winsdor Smith boots – Because in winter everyone needs a good pair of boots and these ones also come with a bit of a heel which means i can dress them up, or just wear them casually

wanted winter accessories

Due to the freezing and rainy weather I have been stuck inside all weekend. I made this time useful by thinking of a ‘wanted winter accessory’ wish list. These items are too dress up any outfit and make it more dynamic. Accessories are always great to add something more to that simple outfit, but as well making that amazing outfit perfect.

Take me away

So, I’m heading off to Melbourne in a week. It’s just a local, quick trip to check out some of their current exhibitions, and of course, do a bit of shopping. The perfect plane outfit is always difficult to conquor as you need to wear something that is comfortable but each item also has to be easily suited for the rest of your lugguage.

I’m only heading down to melbourne for a week, so my luggage is limited. That means everything on the plane I will actually wear a few times over. It’s always good to stick with the basics, as basics will accompany for any outfit.

I have started with a great pair of country road jeans that are really flexible and comfortable, with a black and white stripped top (how could you go wrong.) For when it gets a bit chilly on the plane I have a grey jumper to put on if needed. I have chosen a bright orange bag to bring some colour into the equation with some cute, simple and comfortable ballet flats.

Get Physical !

As previously mentioned I wrote an article about ‘Eat well, Be well’ where I discussed about looking after your body on the inside as it will reflect on the outside. A great way to do this is too do excerise. Exercise will not only enhance your physical body, but will motivate you to eat well and will also improve you mood.

Even if you just go for a small twenty minute walk when you can it improve your well being as it clears you mind, and releases those little happy hormones, endorphins. A great way to help you get motivated is to get your self some exercise gear (and you will feel guilty if you don’t us it). There is also this great little app called myFitnesspal which monitors how much you eat in comparison to how much exercise you do.

So as Olivia Newton-John said, “Let’s get physical.”

Flower power

floEvery Wednesday, also my payday, I will always pick up a bunch of flowers for my room. It’s an expensive routine but it always gives my mood that little pick me up after a long day of work or uni. A little bit of colour, that is different every week evokes a rejuvenating feel so why not add some floral to your wardrobe. Adding a bit of floral to your outfit with definitely give you a refreshing and chic look. Remember, unless you’re wearing one neutral block colour (black, white or cream) keep your remaining outfit very simple.
