All praise the beauty goddesses: my brow game just got a whole lot better.

Brow product trial no. 745. Brow related blog post mention no. 280. Number of brow products currently in my makeup cabinet: too many to count. You just know I’m going to try every new brow product that is ever released, don’t you? And when I saw an ad on the telly one night for what ...

OOTD: Help! I’m addicted to stripes.

Um, yeah, not even joking. I counted, and I have sixteen striped dresses of various styles {maxi, T shirt dress, midi, shift, etc} and eleven striped tops {T’s, tanks, knits, etc}. That’s A LOT of stripes, and I wonder if I’m even more of a creature of habit than I realise. I mean, I know ...

OOTD: kimono kapers.

Once upon a time I bought myself a kind of lacey fringed black kimono from Kmart, and in my head I could so clearly see how good it would look. It languished in my wardrobe, being tried on a few times but never somehow living up to those visions I had seen in my head. ...

OOTD: all hail the T shirt dress

How have I never owned a T shirt dress before now? I’ve thought long and hard to be sure, but no, I don’t remember ever owning something that is unmistakably just a very long T shirt. And can I just say that, with converse sneakers and maybe a denim jacket if you need it, it’s ...

OOTD: Spring has {finally} sprung

Skipping out on half the Winter should mean that I don’t need to be so excited now that it’s finally starting to warm up ever so slightly. I mean, I’m still sporting a very impressive tan ffs. But the truth is that it was brutally hard going from a heatwave to freezing cold and I ...

OOTD: classic vibes

There are times for pineapple print dresses and then there are times for the classic’s that you return to time and again: stripes, denim, and anything black. Lately I’ve been going back to the classics and rediscovering the things that stand the test of time. Things like: denim: jackets, skirts, & jeans shoes: converse sneakers ...

Beauty faves: Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencils

I’ve been a huge fan of these chubby crayon lip pencils for a couple of years. The Maybelline Color Drama lip pencils are heavy on pigment and staying power, the colours are vivid and lush, and the price is seriously cheap and budget friendly. Back when I was running my cafe they were the kind ...

Iconic looks: the slip dress

Not a new trend, the slip dress was everywhere last summer, and is showing no signs of going away. What I love is their versatility: tough biker style with boots and leather, prettied up with heels and metallic accessories, backyard BBQ casual with slides and sunnies, long, short, or midi length. But for a former ...

Dressing for your age? No thanks.

*It’s possible this post should have been titled “Where to go when you want to buy clothes in real life rather than take your chances online and you’re no longer 18 and genetically blessed.” I was reading a blog post recently by a blogger I’ve followed for years, who discussed her frustration at buying clothes ...

OOTD: snakeskin & denim

Of all the dresses I took on our trip there was one I was so excited to wear. It was an online buy, one of those things you see that are instantly just you, and you know it’s going to be perfect and well loved. Then you forget to pack it. 🙁 So when the ...
