In an ideal world we would all have amazing skin, we’d metaphorically high-five and then talk nonstop about what it’s like to have real life, airbrushed skin. Now I don’t know about you guys but I am in a complicated relationship with my skin. One day it seems to love me, and the next it will become so hard to deal with it makes me just want to grab 50 tubs of ice-cream and watch 50 hours of Gossip Girl repeats. I don’t even like Gossip Girl. I’ve always self-diagnosed my skin and bought
Patience, Persistence&Positivity If ever you need to be reminded that you can be whatever you want to be or how you can be the best at what you to do, spend a day with Danielle Scott. It’s such a refreshing attitude and one I think we can all relate to. Sometimes we need that little voice to pick us up and help us push through. When it comes to People Of Substance, Danielle Scott embodies everything it means to live a life filled with Substance – she is driven, balanced and
There’s nothing as refreshing as styling an outfit full of summer whites and statement accessories! Whether you opt for a total look or simply a comfy pair of linen pants or a jumpsuit, white is a great way to feel fresh and polished. When it comes to upping your accessory game, it’s all about balance… The trick is to pair a modest outfit with statement pieces or a statement outfit with modest accessories. This season, I am loving pairing fishnet socks or stockings with heeled loafers or
For as long as I can remember I’ve never really had a specific routine when it comes to my hair. I do my best to listen to my hair and its needs day by day. If it feels dry I put a treatment through it. If it’s oily, I wash it. It’s not very methodical and I am quite the lazy gal. The most attention I put into my hair is honestly the colour – I get bored easily as you may have guessed and I have changed mine so often. It’s the complete opposite to the way I treat my skin, which is weird in
We’ve been in our “new place” a month and a half now and I have been taking some time to create order and make my place more homely. I’ve never setup a place so quickly! I think after not having my own place for three months made me eager to organise my life quickly. PS; this is what my office space used to look like. When my house is well organised and looking it’s best I wake up in the morning feeling happier and more in control. I am pretty notorious for being a bit of a
I have so many beauty faux pas lurking in my closet, so today I thought I would share some of the finer moments. BAD FOUNDATION I wore layers of Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in year 11 and 12. If photos are anything to go by, ivory was not my shade. Not blending products – that horrible foundation line or the horrible eye shadow line!! For years I stopped at my jawline when it came to foundation instead of blending down towards my neck. My sister used to always come up and try and
When it comes to New York, there is constantly so much to take in, and you’re never given the chance to really get bored. I love that each neighbourhood has it’s own character and style – you could see factories, colorful row houses, and within a few minutes, you’ll be walking past a crazy-ass mansion. Following on from my blog post from last week, here are some things to get up to when you visit NYC for either the first time or your next visit. (SOME) THINGS TO SEE &
My idea of summer attire is simple, lightweight fabrics that are comfortable and allow freedom of movement. If I could wear two fabrics forever it would be linen and denim. I love lightweight, loose-fitting linen dresses and shirts that fall generously and anything denim is always a fail-safe option. For me, I love nothing more than pairing denim with all my staples, no matter what the season – the great thing about denim you can style it a multitude of ways. Here are three simple,
It was hard not to feel at home when we visited NYC. Here we are day four back into work for 2017 – I have a 90s playlist queued and I am on my 3rd cup of tea. Procrastination hasn’t set in yet, but I have been reminiscing a lot while writing this post. I have been working on this article on-and-off for weeks, formatting, editing and making sure I have included everything I love. I am bound to have forgotten a thing or two. If you have your own suggestions, be sure to write a comment!

There’s something about this time of year in Australia – the balmy days, coupled with the imminent festive season and laid back attitude makes me feel sentimental. It reminds me so much of my childhood and I can’t help but constantly feel excited. The beginning of Summer is always such an electric feeling. I love spending time outdoors exploring. In fact, call me crazy, but I would take that over a full day of shopping. Ew, crowds. This time of year also means we’ve all nearly made it
Today is not a tutorial or step-by-step guide; it’s just the products I love to use in summer as stand alone products and also together. I have read so many articles that claim to be a minimalist step-by-step guide, only to then go on to have a list as long as my forearm. Today is not a tutorial or step-by-step guide; it’s just the products I love to use in summer as stand alone products and also together. Isn’t it funny how many steps it actually takes to complete a natural
If I’ve learned anything over the past few months is that it’s incredibly important to maintain a routine while you travel. Initially the struggle on my end is entirely mental. The mental adjustment to living a lifestyle that doesn’t reflect how you generally live the carefully curated lifestyle you’ve set for yourself. In preparation for my trip to the United States, I endeavored to be prepared with pre-written blog posts for you guys. I really did. In reality, I really only had a handful
