Bargain of the Week

What: Lovestruck Midi Skirt and Crop
From: Aliphia
Why You Need It: Because matching sets aren't going anywhere! They'll be just as big next season AND you get double the wearability because you can split it up and wear as separates #genius
Black, white and geometric; how have you not added it to your cart already?! Also, Aliphia is Australian owned, locally made and gorgeous.

10 People You Meet at Music Festivals

The festival season has started gaining momentum as the line ups for the next 6 months are released. In my youth (so last year) I was all for the festivals but now I am very particular about which festivals I'll go to... and some of those reasons are to avoid the below stereotypes ha ha ha 
FarFetch has made an excellent info-graphic that can both be your guide to which festivals to attend based on your persona and give you some styling tips to achieve your festival look.
Also, worth a bit of a giggle because it's so spot on! Did they miss any stereotypes?
I personally think "weird guy in morph suit or animal costume who wants to be friends with everyone" should have featured on here!

Bargain of the Week

What: Polka Dot Knit
From: Mikkat Market
Why You Need It: Because winter isn't done with us yet and you can layer this baby till the cows come home in spring. Also, polka dots. I'm not usually a fan of brown's and neutrals but this shade reminds me of caramel and everybody loves caramel (everybody I want to be friends with anyway). A fine knit is great for the office and with your boyfriend jeans.
Lastly, the price. I don't dick around when it comes to this bargain thing.

UPDATE: Noooo it's all gone! :( Here's a super sweet one from Asos to fill the void though.

USA Photo Diary

As you know I recently went to the U. S of A on a whim (because I'm a total bad ass) and I can honestly say it was the best, least thought out decision, I've ever made. It was one of those trips that changes your life (all travel does in some ways though doesn't it) and cheesy as it sounds; I really did meet the most exceptional people who are friends for life and just all round good looking roosters. Between the real talk and the in jokes that had my stomach aching from laughter, I can say that I achieved the Contiki dream of #noregrets. 

Now, this comes with a disclaimer... If you do know me in real life and have me on Facebook you will know why I have been very selective with the photos I've put up. I took my camera out most nights, and most every night we had too much to drink. It's just too much hilarity for this blog to handle and as I've mentioned before: not everyone wants their pictures plastered over the internet!
However, if you do want to see more, please do check out the very amusing and cheeky Luke Blundell on YouTube who documented our trip in a more professional manner than myself (barely though).

And... if you like the look of the trip, want to know where I actually went because these photos are terribly disjointed or are simply curious... here is the tour in detail.
