Grown

All through my teenage years i had always struggled with bad skin condition such as an oily T zone, acne, scars, enlarged pores =( sadly now in adulthood and still battling the same issue.

I do admit I am the worst person in the universe when it comes to shopping for skin care. There is just so much problems with my skin, i just dont know where to start, I feel aggravated and have lost all faith that any special cream would help my skin... or no money in the world can fix my skin dilemma. Then i suddenly realised that i will be turning 30 in a few years, and if i dont have a goal to fix it now, it would be too late in the end...(I know something i should have thought about before i hit 25)

Sigh* Therefore just few months ago i decided to take matters into my own hands (woot woot!) so i did some research, read few reviews and came across a brand that had me at “organic”called - Grown Alchemist. I had never tried anything 'Organic' on my skin before, so i thought its worth a try.

I read their reviews, was curious to know what all the fuss was about. I purchased the facial kit which costs me about AUD $59.95 and it contains the moisturiser, toner, serum, lip balm. I loved the packaging, designed in an old school pharmacy bottles that you could buy at an old vintage drug store plus the bottles would be an awesome decor for my new bathroom. I am not going to get my hopes up, and i am not expecting over night results. This could be the beginning of my daily skin care regime, here’s hoping that i can keep it up. I will be giving my reviews on these products soon

Im Back =)

My in-laws have left, as many of you know they were here for nearly 2 months on holiday, and accommodated with us in our brand new home. To make their stay more hospitable i gave up my new bedroom therefore i was living out of boxes. I did not have any time for blogging, or posting an outfit. If i was at home i was constantly working with my mother n law in the kitchen, (being that perfect house wife, as you do) and if it was the weekend i was super busy being their tour guide or holding their shopping bags. I will try my best to attempt to post everyday now or at least 3 times a week. This was a fun welcome back shoot i did at my new home to get back into my life and blog. The MEOW bag I’m holding is so kitsch.

what is kitsch- it is a fashion trend that uses cartoon like images, prominent pop of colour, think of glittery green boots, Moschino for MacDonald’s, or Lego clutches.
You can also purchase one from Colette for only $19.95 if you, know/love Kitch Accessories then it is one of a must have piece for your wardrobe.

Newyork dreaming

It’s one of those mornings where everything felt like a drag. It was cold, and I was on struggle street, starting with getting out of my cosy bed, then getting ready for work, to getting out of my house in time to catch my train.

The train to and from work takes me, approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, in that time i get to catch up on my dose of stalking on instagram, and listen to my genre of music which mainly consists of old school rock. A pretty good blast to my ears early morning, if you ask me.

This time last year i was looking forward to my trip to USA, on my way to work every morning i would chat to my cousins over whatsapp, to plan on the places we would go to visit around NYC, and the many bars we would party at, and shopping...oh the shopping. It was always a good way to start the day. This year however, no holidays planned, nothing to get excited about, just going about my usual robotic ways...work-sleep-work repeat... n the #inspiration pictures below just aren’t helping the situation....i think i need to start preparing an impromptu trip to NYC this year somehow..

One of many black pairs...

 
There is always something about a black pair of heels that sets me back. It’s a closet basic and versatile, and is worth investing in. Here are few of my favourite in my shoerobe...

Guests




There is something i have left out, something i still haven’t mentioned in this blog which i feel that i must share with you all now. That is, since the end of June my in-laws arrived from overseas on a vacation and staying with us for the next 2 months, I have also moved into my new home to accommodate their stay (more about that soon).


Their arrival means that my daily routines changed slightly, time for blogging/shoots has reduced, more family outing has increased, always being mindful about my choice of outfit is a must (ripped jeans MY CLOSET STAPLE =( body hugging clothing, or exposing too much skin is a big no- no in this family!!!) my diet is screwed, however on the flip side there is more food in my fridge J


In the beginning i was in doubt whether they would adjust to the way of life here, Australian climate, people, given that they come from a very traditional background, a country where all women depend on their men. Their prime minister is a woman; however feminism is always a topic of contradiction. Sigh* my mother n law has never stepped outside of the house without being accompanied by my father n law or my brothers n law. She has always been a housewife, and cooked and cleaned and looked after her three sons. She doesnt hold a degree, or has never worked in a professional work environment before. However what amazes me is her record of knowledge, on just about everything, ask her any topic she will give you a run down.


A small, quiet women with a demeanour like no other, she has class and appears to be very sophisticated. They have settled in, and are starting to understand our discipline, work-home-eat-sleep-work-repeat, & for that i am grateful. Maybe my ripped denims can wait a little for now...

nomcore part 1


Ever since the trend ‘Nomcore’ a fashion faux pas rocked the runways, fashion weeks and other fashion related events (the trend has been on everyone’s lips or more like in everyone’s wardrobes) neutral tones, blacks, whites, greys, loose fitting trousers, man style track pants, and sneakers etc It speaks comfortable styling. Immensely i favour comfort over pain when it comes to fashion. My wardrobe consists of more mostly blacks, my selection of heels doesn’t go past 4 inches, and boyfriend jeans are my best friend. I love the masculine look with a little feminine stroke. Therefore the evolution of the trend nomcore was a big sigh of relief to styling my outfits.
To create the look below I’m wearing my mix apparel shirt, it is the most incredible fit, and for the price i believe the quality of the fabric is 10/10. You could team this up with a white blazer and loafers for work or distressed denim for the weekends.  
 
Outfit details
Coat- Portmans
Shirt- Mix apparel
Pants- Forever new

Mix Apparel for Coles


Coles is the first ever supermarket to bring apparel into their aisles! And with the prices this good! I believe it needs to be featured on this blog.

Free shipping if you purchase over $50 and nothing over $39.95, what more could you want? Decided upon the two items below, chambray jumpsuit for $29.95, and this button down shirt for $25, this has definitely brightened up my depressing monday morning blues. Will be wearing them, on those casual friday night drinks, or a weekend away. Another plus point, they will definitely be taking me from winter all through to summer =)
