July Wishlist ✮

JulyWishlist

I missed compiling wishlists so this was a really fun post for me to put together. I hope you all have been able to purchase or receive some items on your own personal wishlists! =)

① T o o  F a c e d  N a t u r a l  M a t t e  E y e s h a d o w

JulyWishlist-1

I’ve been really into natural makeup these days and I think this palette will be the perfect addition to my eyeshadow collection! I already own a few Too Faced palettes and I’ve never been disappointed before so I’m sure this palette will be no exception! =)

② A – L i n e  M i n i  D r e s s

JulyWishlist-2

I love dresses, I wear them all the time no matter what the season is. I like this dress because it is very flattering and accentuates the figure perfectly. It also is a great layering piece and I like that it is long-sleeved so I can wear it for the remainder of winter.

③ C a r d  H o l d e r

JulyWishlist-3

I want one of these because when I go out, I usually just carry my cards around with me in my pocket but I feel that having a card holder will keep everything all in one place and will just make it more easy for me to carry them. I also just love the soft mint colour of it, I find it very pretty!

A short wishlist this month but I still hope you enjoyed this post anyway! Let me know if you guys have any products in particular that you have been eyeing for awhile and would like to purchase! I’d love to know. ♡

May Wishlist ✮

MayWishlist

Hi everyone! Mother’s Day was yesterday for me but I know that it’s today for a lot of you so I’m wishing all of you and your mother a lovely Mother’s Day!

Today I’m going to do a post on a few of the items I’m eyeing for this month! I rarely ever end up purchasing the items in my wishlist LOL but I still find it so fun to put these kind of posts together nevertheless! =P

① L a n e  C r a w f o r d  ‘ M a t i l d e ‘  C r i s s c r o s s  S t r a p  S u e d e  P u m p s

MayWishlist-1

I’m in love with how classy these shoes look! I feel like they would be appropriate for so many different purposes and occasions, plus they would suit so many different outfits too!

② N A R S  I t a  B r u s h

MayWishlist-2

I really want to get more into contouring and I have heard so many great things about this brush. I feel as though it’d make contouring so much more easier and faster to do! The only thing is how ridiculously expensive it is! =(

③ T h e  B a l m  M a r y – L o u  M a n i z e r

MayWishlist-3

Another product that gets talked about so so much! I have been using the same highlighter for the longest time and I feel like now is the time to try something new! I have literally not heard anything bad about this highlighter, everyone seems to be in love with it! It’s definitely one that I am going to look into next!

④ K a t e  S p a d e  C l a s s i c  N y l o n  D a v e n e y  L a p t o p  B a g

MayWishlist-4

It’s always a struggle for me to try and find cute bags that can fit my laptop! My backpack is starting to get a little too small for me and I’m having issues with the zipper when I’m carrying a bit too much. I think this bag will be absolutely perfect because it has a special compartment just for your laptop, with more room to spare for other essential items! =)

I hope you liked my wishlist for this month! I find putting together wishlists so much fun to do even if I don’t end up purchasing the items! =P What are you hoping to pick up this month?

April Fashion Wishlist ✮

AprilFashionWishlist

I can’t believe it’s April already! This year has gone by so fast. I’ve been slacking off on the fashion related posts so I wanted to put together another wishlist! I love looking through websites and seeing clothes that I would love to own. I honestly get enough satisfaction doing this that I don’t always feel like I need to purchase the items! =P Are you guys like that too?

① P i n k  F l o r a l  D r e s s

AprilFashionWishlist-1

I know it’s autumn here in Australia but I just can’t get over this dress! It is totally me in dress form. I’m in love with it! I love the side cut-outs and the poofy floral skirt. It’s also my favourite shade of pink!

 P e n c i l  S k i r t s

AprilFashionWishlist-2

I only own one classic black pencil skirt but I need to expand my collection because I’m now doing a double degree with commerce, meaning that I will be needing more business clothes! I want a few other colours so I can mix and match. Navy is definitely at the top of my list because I have read that it is one of the most appropriate colours to wear – it gives off a greater impression than black does in a work environment! The photos above are all from YesStyle, it’s a great website for those of you who are into Asian fashion!

③ T r e n c h  C o a t

AprilFashionWishlist-3

Trench coats are such classic fashion pieces and I think they add so much classiness to an outfit! I love both of the colours above, the beige is a classic and the bluish grey is so beautiful and different!

④ N i k e  F l y k n i t  L u n a r  3

AprilFashionWishlist-4

These are the new running shoes released by Nike and they are so gorgeous! I have been wearing the Frees 5.0 since I started running and they are great for a barefoot-like run but the Flyknit Lunars provide a little more support. They also just look absolutely stunning! =) I love the multi-coloured soles!

I don’t have a really big wishlist this month but I wanted to share it with you all anyway! =) What sort of fashion pieces are you guys looking for this month? I’d love to know!

My Dream Wedding Day ♡

DreamWeddingDayHeader

I was approached by Lover.ly to participate in this challenge and I thought it was a fabulous idea! I’m certain that all young girls have pictured the day that they would get married and I, for one, occasionally do think about what my actual dream wedding day would be like! I know I hear all the time that planning the day is incredibly stressful but everyone says that it’s the most special day of our lives so I say it is most worth it!

Venue

A part of the challenge was to pick out which of the following venues your dream wedding would be located: an elegant estate, secret garden or rustic winery! I wanted my wedding to be at a traditional church when I was younger but as I’ve grown up now, I now think that a secret garden would be so romantic and beautiful. There’s just something so ethereal and serene about being surrounded by nature!

WeddingDayVenue

WeddingDress

Going onto the wedding dress shop on the website is so overwhelming, but I mean that in a good way of course! Wedding dresses in general are just so breathtakingly beautiful and after browsing through the pages and seeing the hundreds of stunning styles, it became increasingly difficult to pinpoint what my perfect wedding dress would be. However, I was immediately drawn to the designs by Maggie Sottero! Her dresses all have a feminine and classic feel to them, very much like my personal style. I have always envisioned my wedding dress to have lace detailing and a long trail. I want to look and feel like a princess on the special day! =) I guess I won’t know what my perfect dress would be until I’m preparing for my actual wedding and I’m going around different stores trying to find the perfect one! But there are definitely two particular styles that catch my eye every time:

♡ Form fitting lace dress with a low back, long trail and a bow at the back
♡ Bigger, princess-like dress with lace detailing

 Lucinda Dress

WeddingDressLucinda

 Lauralee Dress

WeddingDressLauralee

I definitely think that for the particular venue, I would want something more softer material wise. I definitely also think that these dresses are more classic rather than trendy because I don’t ever want to look back one day at my wedding photos and regret my choice! =P

Shoes&Accessories

GucciNaomiSandals

I remember being so obsessed with the planning of Chriselle Lim’s wedding and I completely fell in love with the shoes she wore on her special day. I absolutely adore the embellishments on the front T-straps and I feel that they are the most perfect shoes. They would be such a splurge but I know that I would be able to get good use out of them after the wedding too, especially for other more special and glam night occasions. =)

WeddingHeadpiece

I would choose a veil similar to that shown in my first dress choice. However, if I was wearing the second dress, I would probably opt for something a little more toned down and go for a jewelled head piece such as the one I showed. I think it suits the venue perfectly!

Makeup&Hair

WeddingMakeup

Of course I can’t complete my post without including what sort of makeup and hair I would choose for the special day! For makeup, I would most definitely go for a more natural glam makeup look that is classic. I wouldn’t dare to play around with any trendy looks just because, as I said before, I don’t want to look back and wonder what I was thinking!

WeddingDayHair

I’m not someone who really likes their hair all the way up so I would love to have my hair curled in a half-up half-down sort of style. I really adore softer and natural looking curls so I would want my hair to be curled like the picture above and pinned back (minus the hairpiece).

That completes my dream wedding day! I really enjoyed this challenge, it was so much fun to put together. I can’t wait to look back to this post when I’m actually planning on getting married and see how my tastes will (or won’t) change!

♡ Haul: Nike & Lululemon Athletica Workout Clothes

Haul-SportswearMarch

On my Dad’s birthday last weekend, I went on a family trip to a few factory outlets and picked up some new sportswear. I always get excited to pick up new sports clothes because it’s the only time I will actually wear more bright and fun colours LOL. It’s also just fun to pick up some new cute clothes to wear to the gym. =) If you’re interested in buying new workout gear, I would recommend you either buy off Eastbay online or search your local factory outlets. They often have great deals on and it’s always good to save money whenever we can!

N i k e

NikeHaul1-1

This top is so soft, it looks plain in terms of its style (it’s just a basic T-back tank top) but it feels amazing and lightweight. I literally cannot stop touching it when I wear it LOL (I probably look like a creeper D=). It looks pastel pink in the photo but it’s actually a pretty, bright bubblegum pink shade! I took the tag off this one and I’ve seemed to have forgotten the price but I believe it was between $18 to $20 after discount!

NikeHaul1-3

The material of this tank is different to the one above, it’s not as soft but it still has the same fit on the body. For exercise, I prefer more slim fitting clothes because I find them to be more comfortable and they don’t get in the way like baggier clothes do! This tank is a brighter coral shade and it was reduced at 50% off from $50 to $25!

NikeHaul1-2

I didn’t have that many running shorts before this shopping trip, I had a phase of purchasing a lot of different pants but because it still gets humid here in Australia, I wanted to pick up a few more shorts so I could rotate around them more easily!

NikeHaul1-4

This is the same style of shorts as the one above but in a highlighter, neon yellow shade! I love how bright these shorts are. =) Both of the shorts were further 50% from an original price of $35 so they were $17.50 each.

➳ All of the items I picked up from Nike are from the Dri-Fit range, which is designed to keep the body cool when you sweat during exercise! =)

L u l u l e m o n

LululemonHaul1-1

These tanks were reduced from $75 to $19 so I just had to pick them up! I liked the cut-outs because I thought they were quite unique. A lot of my tops are more on the simple side so I thought these would be a nice way to change things up a little.

I hope you enjoyed this haul! Also please excuse how awkward the clothes look splayed on my bed. It’s difficult for me to get them to look nice and neat! >< LOL but thank you all for reading! ♡

March Luxury Fashion Wishlist ✮

March2015LuxuryFashionWishlist

I’m awaiting the day when I’ll finally be able to purchase high end fashion pieces without feeling so guilty about it but for now I’m going to appreciate them through shop windows and browsing online. =P I’m definitely not someone who absolutely loves and needs designer products (I like to purchase cheaper items that are just as cute), I just think they look nice, are high quality and are great rewarding gifts for yourself and of course other people too!

① G i v e n c h y  A n t i g o n a  M e d i u m  P a t e n t  L e a t h e r  T o t e
( C h e r r y )

MarchLuxuryWishlist-1

The style of the Givenchy bag is my absolute favourite, I’m really into over the shoulder bags with longer straps that are decently sized to fit more than just your phone, wallet and keys. I absolutely adore the deep red colour! I think out of all dark colours, deep red is my favourite! It’s a colour that matches quite easily into my current wardrobe and I think it’s perfect for the autumn and winter.

② V a l e n t i n o  R o c k s t u d  P a t e n t  S a n d a l 

MarchLuxuryWishlist-2

This is such a classic designer shoe in my opinion but I absolutely love it. I think they look really glam, especially with the studs. I also don’t own any pointed nude heels!

③ E l i e  S a a b  G o w n s

MarchLuxuryWishlist-3

Elie Saab is my favourite designer when it comes to gowns. The detail in his dresses are so incredible and every piece is seriously breathtakingly gorgeous. I have no idea when I’ll be in a situation that requires me to wear one of his gowns but I would still be so honoured to own one! Perhaps on my wedding day hehe.

④ C a r t i e r  L e v e  B r a c e l e t

MarchLuxuryWishlist-4

I love gold jewellery and I think this bracelet is such a beautiful piece. It would be perfect to wear everyday. It can be worn by itself for a subtle statement or layered for arm candy! Love it, I think it’s a timeless bracelet in my opinion! ♡

My list definitely isn’t extensive but I would be so honoured to be able to own even just one of these items! Hehe I can dream for now. =P Are there any luxury splurge-worthy items that you have been eyeing lately? Let me know! =)

Autumn Outfits Inspiration ♔

AutumnOutfitsInspiration2015tumblr_m1o591frzf1qb1380tumblr_m1o591frzf1qb1380

So while I’m working around my home figuring out the best places to take some OOTD pictures, I thought I would do a post showing outfits that I would totally wear on a casual, comfy day out where I want to be warm and comfortable. It’s a representation of the pieces from my autumn fashion essentials post being put together in complete outfits! In Australia, the weather is incredibly bipolar. At times it can get really hot in the middle of autumn and at other times, it’s chillier and windy! Therefore, I’ll be including outfits that are part of the seasonal transition where it is not too cold to be wearing extremely warm clothes but it is also not too hot where sleeveless tops will suffice. =)

I’ll be going through each of the outfit ideas from when it’s slightly warm to when it’s cold and you will be needing to wear more! Let me know which outfits are your favourite in the comments and also whether our styles are similar or not!

Autumn Fashion Essentials ♔

Autumn2015FashionEssentialstumblr_m1o591frzf1qb1380tumblr_m1o591frzf1qb1380

March is the beginning of Autumn/Fall in Australia so I wanted to do a post on some essential items that I think will help transition into the new season! =) This is my first official fashion post! As university has started, I plan to do some occasional OOTDs and I hope you all look forward to them. Just a quick note, I don’t always stick to traditional autumnal colours and I just wear whatever will keep me warm and comfortable for this season!

S w e a t e r s

Autumn2015Sweaters

I am someone who turns to sweaters to keep warm but for convenience too. They are easy to throw on and if it gets a little warm you can just roll your sleeves up! There are also so many different materials to choose from so some don’t require layering at all. If one is a little on the thin side, I like to layer a long sleeved shirt underneath. A particular style that I am completely obsessed with right now is wearing a collared blouse underneath. I find thick sweaters really comfortable and are perfect for those lazy days where you don’t have the time or just aren’t bothered to dress up!

L o n g  S l e e v e d  T o p s

Autumn2015LongSleeves

Right during the transition, the weather is still generally warm but may be windy at the same time so a standard long sleeved top will be perfect to wear on its own. A plain one may seem a bit boring to wear alone so I like to play around with layers and patterns. I really enjoy collars on my shirts, I find them to be so adorable but elegant and chic at the same time! =)

O u t e r w e a r

Autumn2015Outerwear

If I’m not wearing a sweater then I’ll be wearing a thinner plain long sleeved top with a thicker knit cardigan or jacket. In my opinion, like a statement fashion jewellery piece, a nicely fitted jacket can pull an entire look together and make it look more fancy. There are such a wide range of styles and materials to choose from. I personally enjoy oversized knit cardigans, they look so effortless but are so comfortable to wear! I think they’re perfect for casual occasions.

P a n t s

Autumn2015Pants

More often than not, I’m wearing skinny jeans or leggings. You can never go wrong with either during the colder months! They match absolutely everything. Because my tops are usually quite feminine, I like to keep my denim a bit more edgier with some distress and tears in them. I also find that darker washes look the best during this time of year.

S h o e s

Autumn2015Shoes

For me, a classic black ankle boot is a must! I wear them religiously during the colder months because I know they are comfortable but will keep my feet dry in case it starts to rain! They also match and look great with absolutely anything. I wear them 99% of the time during the autumn and winter. When it comes to metals, I always prefer gold because I think it looks more chic with black leather!

S c a r v e s

Autumn2015Scarves

Scarves are a great way to accessorise on chilly days while also providing sufficient warmth! I think they can be a way to add a pop of colour to an outfit if everything else is kept simple. Having a small variety of scarves to rotate around is a must in my opinion! =) My absolute favourites are chunky infinity scarves, I don’t personally gravitate towards scarves that are on the thin side.

I know that a lot of you guys are from the Northern hemisphere and are going into spring but I still hope you enjoyed my first official fashion post! ♡ Let me know what your essentials are and if you think I’m missing any important pieces hehe.

February Wishlist ✮

FebruaryWishlist15Banner

Hi everyone! I haven’t done any posts on fashion or topics other than beauty and makeup so I thought it would be a nice change to do a wishlist that included a variety of things! I’m planning on doing more fashion, health/fitness and lifestyle posts in the coming months so I thought this would be a great little introduction into my style! I’m also going to keep this post less text heavy too! =P If you are a follower of my blog, you probably wouldn’t be surprised about the theme of most of the items LOL.
