Clinique It Girl: Vote for me!



I am so excited to announce I've made it to the final 5 in Cliniques It Girl search! I've always loved Clinique (it saved my skin when I was younger, but that's a story for another time!) and being an amabassador for such a great brand would make my year (and it's only February!) So without further ado, please vote for me to be the next Clinique It Girl. It would mean the world to me AND all voters go in the running to win a $500 Clinique prize pack. That's a pretty good reason to follow this link!

Thank you so much! And just a little bit of love...this blog helped me have the confidence to even enter the competition, so thank you to all my lovely followers xxx

A huge thank you to Angela from Fashsin City who nominated me for a Liebster Award! I really recommend checking out her blog, she is a gorgeous girl with great taste.

3. Ask 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.

6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
Here we go...

1. My favourite shoes growing up were a pair of yellow gumboots (wellies)
2. I’m Australian and have never been to the Opera House!
3. I am obsessed with macarons (who isn’t though?)
4. My favourite author is Mitch Albom
5. I love Post Secret (if you don’t know what it is you MUST look it up)
6. I’ve never broken a bone
7. My favourite colour is blue
8. I’ve never owned my own car!
9. I used to live in Edinburgh, Scotland
10. I don’t like white chocolate
11. I am dying to go to Japan!
What made you start your blog?
I loved fashion blogs and I owned so many great clothes so I thought “hey I can do that!”
Who is your favorite fashion icon?
Miranda Kerr, and not just because I’m Australian! I think she is gorgeous, sweet and sexy and I think she has great business ethic.
What inspires you?
Fashion blogs and travel. I try to find something to inspire me every day; a picture, a quote or even a bunch of flowers!
What is your favorite type of food?
Lamb. I could be a vegetarian if lamb didn’t exist. The only thing that contests lamb, is sweets like macarons and chocolate covered anything!
If you had one place to go to for free in the world, where would it be and why?
Iceland, there’s so much to see there! The hot springs, the volcanoes, the northern lights…If that was a trip I could do for free then I could see EVERYTHING!
What are your favorite stores that you love to shop at and why?
I’m a huge online shopping fan! I use a few Australian sites; Princess Polly, Sabo Skirt and With Love Kirsten Boutique…. The list is endless!
If it weren't for your blog, what else would you be doing?
I think I would be very frustrated creatively. Maybe I would be exercising more? Ha ha ha
What keeps you motivated and positive?
Sunshine and networking (and a new pair of heels) It’s very hard to be negative when you’re sitting in the sun and talking to like minded people (like all you lovely bloggers!) keeps motivation pumping.
What is your favorite tv show?
Current TV I would say True Blood. Old TV I would say Buffy and Angel. Yes, I am a total nerd.
Where are you from?
Sydney, Australia
List 3 things why you love your town, city, state, country etc.
1.       I love living 10 minutes from the beach
2.       I love how being Australian makes it ok for “Barbeque” to be a meal
3.       I love walking around Sydney harbour in my lunch break
 And now...

1. What colour do you always feel fantastic in?
2. What cheers you up on a less than perfect day?
3. Can you remember the first designer outfit you fell in love with?
4. What are your favourite online stores?
5. If you could live anywhere else in the world for 6 months where would it be?
6. What is one thing on your bucket list?
7. If you could be an ambassador for any brand, what brand would it be?
8. Describe your perfect pair of heels
9. Dark lips or dark eyes? Or both?
10. What is your favourite social media platform or mobile app?
11. What is your biggest fashion faux pas?
 And lastly... Another thank you to Angela from Fashsin City! xxx

February Inspiration

It honestly feels like I've simply skipped January! It flew by so quickly, but now I'm back into the swing of things at work and exciting things are happening! My sister is pregnant, I've been shortlisted for a chance to be an It Girl for Clinique (possibly my favourite beauty brand) and our house has been practically gutted and re-done! I can just tell this year is going to be exciting and life changing! Here's a quick post of the things that are inspiring me this month. As you can see it appears to all white!
