Essence Spring Trend Collection: Brit Tea

Hi loves,
Happy Sunday!! I just got back home from a weekend getaway to Port Stephens with my boyfriend and our son for our ninth anniversary. We had the absolute best time, and guess what, we vlogged the entire trip. It was so much fun, and I'm so excited to edit it and post it up on our family YouTube channel soon. So, stay tuned!

Anyway, who knew that my first beauty post on the new and improved blog would be a prize pack I unknowingly entered and won? Definitely not me!
This post is most certainly not sponsored, but I am so excited to bring to you guys exclusive pics of essence cosmetics' spring trend collection which is actually now in all Target stores, so after you read this, head on out to your nearest Target and splurge splurge splurge, ladies!

If you know me personally, you'd know that I absolutely adore pastel colours. There's just something so beautiful and girly about pastel shades.

I was so excited to have been able to receive this prize pack because ever since I found out about the collection coming to Target stores, I sought out every single Target store in my district every day, but didn't manage to come across it. Luckily, I won the competition on their Facebook page because now I get to try out every beauty product from the collection!

Don't worry, I'm going to test them out, and the ones I absolutely love will go into my giveaway which is coming real soon.

So without further ado, essence cosmetics Spring Trend Collection: Brit-Tea 



Hi loves,
When I'm shooting looks with my friend, I always try to find my best model pose. That's what a fashion blogger does, right? A part of me feels totally fierce, but the other part of me feels like a total knob. I'm determined to be an 'everyday girl' kind of blogger who looks goofy and imperfect, rather than a high-fashion kind of blogger who rarely smiles in her photos.
I think I've preached enough about self-beauty and embracing your body and loving who you are, so I won't go into that again, but if you're a fashion blogger who's starting out just like me, remember what your main priority is, because mine is making sure I cater to the everyday girl!

Without further ado, scroll through these pics to see my casual posing and cheeky smiles.


Don't Baroque My Heart

Hi loves,
My apologies because it seems as though I haven't posted in two weeks and am feeling real shitty about it. Don't worry, I'm not going back to my old ways - it was just a heck of a week last week so I didn't get a chance to post anything.

But I'm excited to share this post with you guys tonight because I've wanted to style this outfit ever since I got this aaaaaamazing jacket from one of my supervisors while I was interning at Dolly magazine {you can see what else I got from my incredible time spent at Dolly/Cleo magazines right here.}

I posted a sneak peek pic of this outfit yesterday on Instagram, and funnily enough, one of my friends commented that it looked like an outfit Blair Waldorf would wear. What's even more funny is that I freaking love Blair Waldorf!!?!!???!! Just thought I'd put that in here somewhere.. You know, just some unnecessary information because who doesn't love unnecessary information {did you know a sheep, a duck and a rooster were the first passengers on a hot air balloon?!}

This look has been long-awaited. I got the these pants so long ago, but mum kept forgetting to get them tailored for me (she's pretty talented in the fact that she sews all of my 'too-long' clothes, and she cuts and colours my hair too), until recently which is why I was so keen to style this look together. And I gotta say, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

This is for all of you strong independent woman who need no man or no boss to tell them how freaking great they are. You sure as hell can look stylish too.

*Raise your hand if you have to get your clothes tailored almost all the time?!*
