1 piece, 3 ways: the button-up shirt


I've been a little obsessed with button-up shirts lately. Long sleeves, collars, pinstripes, or even a soft checkered print - I love them all. Although they've always been a timeless and era-proof essential (especially for your work wardrobe), button-ups have become quite popular out of the office as well. I love how versatile these shirts are - pair it with tailored pants or a pencil skirt for a day in the office, or change it up on the weekend with some boyfriend jeans and sneakers. It's all about the effortless vibe, and these button-up shirts are king for making you look polished and put-together, no matter the occasion.

The team over at Hawes & Curtis know all too well about the perfect fit for a button-up shirt. They have a wide range of women's office and fashion shirts in every possible colour and pattern, and with a true British style that's sleek and smart. They also offer free shipping and free returns for Australia! What's not to love about that? ;)

Clear skin essentials


Hey guys, hope you all had a great weekend :) These days just seem to fly by! Another Monday has gone, and work keeps piling up... I've been super busy the past week preparing for mid semester uni exams, so apologies for not posting regularly :(

Can you believe it's SPRING already?! I'm so excited for the weather to start warming up, I've had enough of this cold wind and heavy rainfall everyday! Looking forward to sunnier days ahead :)

Today I have some amazing beauty products to show you guys! As you probably already know, I'm not a huge fan of make-up and I love to keep my skin as natural as possible. I'm always on the hunt for new and exciting products to keep my skin looking clear and fresh, while still being gentle. I've found three products recently, which have worked wonders for my skin:
1. Dermalogica Clear Start - Pore Control Scrub
2. Dermalogica Clear Start - Overnight Treatment
3. Kosmea - Facial Cleansing Wipes

Sweater season


Sweater season is here! Well, it's been here for quite a while now, but I'm loving the transeasonal weather we've been having in Sydney lately. Spring is nearly here!

A simple, comfortable and borderline preppy outfit for today. I love when shirts and collars peek out of jumpers - it makes a casual outfit look more clean and put together. And the combination of black, white and denim can never go wrong! Just add a bit of edge with some metal cap booties and you're good to go :)

Hope you're all having a fab week!

Winter beauty essential: rose hip oil


It seems like this rain is never ending.. and even though Spring is just around the corner, it still feels like we're stuck in the thick of winter! Colder months usually mean dry skin season in the beauty books, but I've found the perfect solution!

I've always been a fan of rose hip oil, and I've been using it regularly for the past few years, but I love mixing it up and trying a new brand every now and then. Some brands have caused my skin to break out and others have moisturised and cleared my skin. I guess it all depends on finding the right product for your skin type.

This time, I've tested out Kosmea certified organic rose hip oil. I've been using it for the past few days, and I'm loving it! I'd definitely say that a little goes a long way with this product. I have naturally oily skin, so I only use a few small drops (one on each cheek, forehead and nose) and it works really well. It moisturises my skin without making it too oily (usually causing me to break out), and it's quite light, which I love. I use it before going to bed at night, and in the morning my skin feel super soft. Oh, and it smells great too!

Overall, I'd definitely recommend it. Rose hip oil of any kind is always great for your skin, especially in colder months where skin tends to get on the dry side. The best part is that you can test out Kosmea rose hip oil for yourself for as little as $12.95!

Hope you guys enjoy the photos :) Beware: I'm not wearing any makeup! haha

Bonfire Candles


A weekend delivery that's too good not to share with you all!
I received my very first Bonfire candle the other day, and boy, am I in love with the scent! I ordered the Sweet Slice fragrance - a pleasant mix of butterscotch and sweet vanilla wafers. If only you could smell it through the screen! There's really nothing better than getting cosy on a lazy Sunday, watching movies and burning a sweet Bonfire candle.. Heaven!

Not only are they all made from 100% natural soy and other ingredients, but they're also hand poured right here in Sydney! So you know you're getting quality poured into every jar.
