I wish I wish!!

Left to Right: Nars Laguna Bronzer, Sportsgirl Kitty Shirt, Ray Ban Aviators, Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All over Radiance Cream, Converse shoes, American Apparel Disco Pants, Karen Walker Rabbit Earrings and Marc by Marc Jacobs Too Hot To Handle Tote.

Being involved in the fashion industry through work, study and consumption I feel as if I have a never ending wish list. It dosent help that I am always combing the interent looking at my favourite shops and blogs. Instead of waging a war with my brain over buying these beauties or saving my pennies I thought it would be nice to share my latest wants with you all. Now that I have compiled my wish list into one space I've realised I have unconsciously sourced my perfect outfit. Shinny pants that suck you in, comfy shoes, designer shades and tote, bronzed and glowing skin and animals. Ahh how I am longing for everything on this page right now! Wish me luck on the saving verse spending war and tell me whats on your wish list.

The Dream Lip Team

When it comes to beauty I am a bit of a novice however this year as a result of watching way to many beauty gurus on YouTube I have been transformed into somewhat of a beauty junkie. That aside I have always been into lip products! I collected rimmel lip glosses when I was in High School then I graduated to Mac lipsticks and am now getting a steady collection of Revlon lip butters. It's quite unfortunate that I love lips so much because I suffer from incredibly sensitive lips. Every time the wether changes a few degrees or heven forbid forget my water bottle my lips begin to freak out. Being an Aussie girl I loyally stand by my Lucas' Paw Paw Ointment. This product has been my holy grail product since I discovered it on a skiing holiday when I was seventeen. Now I know most Australians are rolling there eyes right now thinking this is nothing new we all have about five of these floating around. Which is completely true we all know about paw paw ointment and have loved it for years. However a few months ago I decided to pick up the Lush lip scrub and have found that these two products together are a match made in heaven. These two products have saved my lips from the brink of being chapped countless of times this winter. The scrub takes away all the icky dead skin and the ointment nourishes and repairs. An added bonus along with lovely soft lips is that the vanilla and chocolate flavour of the scrub is incredible! As Lucas' Paw Paw Ointment has been a staple for me over the last five years I have a feeling the Lush lip scrub will be a favourite for a long long time.

Food, travel, fashion, pets and nail polish! This months instragram snaps basically sum up my favourite things in life. I jetted off to Sydney for a week in June to intern for Shop Til You Drop magazine. I had a fantastic week and when I wasn't in the office observing how glossy publications are run I was wondering the streets of Sydney shopping, eating and instagraming up a storm. The frosty weather meant I had to bust out my duffel coat that had not seen the light of day since my Japan trip. As I pulled it on I discovered a few receipts and train tickets scrunched up in the pockets. Its funny how a few scraps of paper can bring back a rush of nostalgia. Back home and I was interning again, this time at a fashion show set in the most quaint little church. Other than that all it seems I got up to for the rest of June was eat and paint my nails.

Lazy Sunday

The last two weeks has been rather busy for me, the knowledge that I had sunday off and could be as lazy as can be, was the only thing that got me through it. After a long sleep in Adam and I rode our bicycles to a local cafe. breakfast is one of my favorite meals to eat out so the day was already of to a pretty good start. The rest of the day was filled up with a mid day nap, watching Dragons Den and homemade pizza.  All in all my sunday was the perfect way to unwind and make me feel motivated for work tomorrow. I wasn't planning on making an outfit of the day post but around mid day I realised that I was wearing a few of my favourite pieces so I was excited to share it. I hope that your sunday was as blissful as mine.

Suitcase Rumage

The Suite Case Rummage is a monthly market, located in the middel of brisbane, specialising in second hand and handmade goods. One of my friends booked a spot for herself and asked if I would like to share her plot. As my wardrobe is overflowing with clothes I gladly accepted her offer. After rummaging through my own belongings I managed to fill a suitcase with some of my pree loved yet neglected items. Out of curiosity I choose to sell two items that I had hand made. The first piece was a old army green button up shirt that I modified with a studded collar. The second was a green scarf that I had knitted myself. The shirt was the first item I sold and was one of the most looked at pieces in my stall. The scarf I was a little bit more reluctant to part with as I put quite a bit of time and effort into creating it. In the end I sold it to a lovely lady who bought it for her little daughter. I am quite inspired by the experience to whip up a few more items to sell. When exploring the markte the amount of suitcases and people rummaging was quite over whelming. There was also such a variety in products from hand crafted home wears , baked goods, modified and handmade clothes to all sorts of vintage goodies. Over all the market had a great atmosphere regardless of whether you came to sell or just wonder around.
