TREND ALERT: Guitar Bag Strap for less & update any handbag in your collection

How to update any handbag in your collection with the trendy guitar strap

If you haven’t heard me go on and on about this strap yet and my current handbag accessory obsession, please let me fill you in. This $30 strap from H&M has honestly been a game changer for me! I’m sure you have all see those Fendi you straps, and those Valentino guitar straps which have been all the rage lately. I’ve been teaming it up with vintage bags and pouches and it’s honestly just the best! If you can’t find this particular strap, you can also check for them on ebay! Changing the accessories on your bags whether it be the strap, adding stickers, adding keychains or twillies are an amazing way of making your bag your own.

In this look I’ve teamed it with my Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis and I think it’s perfect! It’s honestly a match made in heaven. You guys know that I love my pochette metis, but lately it’s become so popular that they’re almost everywhere! While I do enjoy wearing it casually with the strap provided for a classic look (like in this post here and also here), I love this modern/trendy spin the strap adds to this bag. It really makes it stand out from the crown, and it’s a great talking point! What do you guys think?

On a more personal note…

These photos were taken at Hahndorf with my family and I’m sorry for the picture spam but I just love these photos. Its such a wonderful reminder of what an amazing day we had. Since moving to Brisbane I’ve had such bad homesickness. If you’re from a big family, you know how much fun and laughter there is in being in at home with the family. It’s not always sunshine and buttercups, but when you’re home, there’s nothing like it. Being away from home has it’s perks in being independent again, doing your own thing, having your own space, not worrying about your mum/sister stealing you clothes…. but they’re also what makes me feel so lonely at times.

I look at these pictures and smile.
I hope you really enjoy them too!

Now I know I’ve been neglecting my blog a bit, and I’ve got a backlog of pictures I really want to have posted soon. So make sure you follow me on bloglovin if you want to stay updated!

Mother’s day gift ideas with discount codes!

Happy mothers day!! Here is to the one day of the year that we all proclaim our love and admiration to the most wonderful woman we all know, and strive to be – our mothers! As I type this, it is actually already mother’s day in Australia, and unfortunately I was not able to spend it with my mama.

But as I sat on my bed, thinking about mother’s day, it came to my mind that there are actually some amazing deals at the moment perfect for mother’s day. So heck I though, why not give a shout out to the most amazing woman there is, and at the same time share with you guys some things that I think would make an amazing present! Mind you just because it’s mother’s day today or tomorrow (depending on where you are) – doesn’t mean that’s the only time to spoil her! You can always treat you mum any time!

So this is my mum. She’s a gorgeous woman inside and out. She’s also out little social butterfly. Always the first on the dance floor and last to leave a party. She’s an extrovert that thrives on other people’s energy, and there’s not a lot she wouldn’t do for her friends or family.

She’s also been my biggest fan from the get go, and I can always count on her to make me feel like I’m good enough. Whenever I feel like life’s too hard, she’s always there to hold my hand. She has the warmest hugs and the biggest heart. When you cry, she cries with you. When you laugh, she laughs with you. She makes a house feel like a home.

She loves small gestures. Even the tiniest gesture of thoughtfulness and it’s like you’ve given her the sun and moon. Stay in her good books and there’s nothing she wouldnt do to return the favour. She loves to joke and giggle. Probably more than what is normal for her age. Sometimes she makes jokes in her head and starts laughing before even she manages to get it out! She can also be a little bit crazy and dramatic sometimes. But what woman isn’t?

These are all things that I love and adore about her, and would never change for anything in the world.

To the woman that inspires me; To the mother that loves me; To the friend that listens; and to the person I call home. Thank you for simply being you. I love you mama and miss you so much! Can’t wait to see you soon!

Now how about some cool gift ideas hey? Pick you mum – pick your gift! But always remember it’s not about the presents its about the though. Also there’s nothing like a good old fashioned hug & “I love you” that makes any mother swoon! haha.

FOR THE TIRED AND STRESSED MUM – LUSH BATHBOMBS

I know what you’re thinking, isn’t this a bit cliche. But you know what, it’s cliche because it’s good! I know for a fact that a good long bath is something that one (let alone a mother) simply does not have time for. So what better time to let you mum indulge than on mother’s day. Its the perfect gift for any stressed mother who barely has time to eat let alone shower. Theres nothing more satisfying that an delicious bubbly bath to relax and wind down to, and end a lovely weekend.

Daniel wellington has come out with an amazing new collection of petite watches with chain strap. And honestly, they’re just so luxurious and amazing.

The size of the face is perfect and it’s such a light weight watch! It’s functional, stylish and perfect for the trendy mum that’s alway on the go.

MARCH SHOPSALE: Autumn Winter Street Style Trends 2017

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog. Just wanted to kick things off this year by going through a few of the trends you may want to try this autumn winter. I know there’s been a few posts going around / a few YT videos on trends this spring/summer. Well, here in Australia, we’re not quite there. In fact, autumn is here and winter will be right around the corner (if it ever gets here! Especially in QLD).

It’s actually perfect timing because retailer of the march shopsale event where so many of my favourite retailers will be having an exclusive sale if you use the codes I’ll be providing below. Some are up to 25%! It’s the perfect opportunity to pick up that one trend piece you’ve been eyeing off for the past few weeks.

So here are a few trends you might want to try this autumn/winter and I’ve also included some of my favourite picks from sale. Don’t forget to use the code though to be eligible for the savings!

Style Trend: GINGHAM

So this is a trent that I think everyone is seeing on the street, but have mainly aimed it for spring/autumn fashion. I think it’s definitely something we can transition for autumn winter too. If you’re feeling bold, go for an all gingham look, matching different sized prints. I also love how this print looks layered with a warm knit/turtle neck underneath. One of my favourite way to style this is as a skirt, and if worn with some furry mules / ankle boots it would look so cool!

Style Trend: EMBROIDERED

Again this is another spring look that I actually think would looke amazing this autumn winter. I have seen some really cool dark hippy vibes with the embroidered floral. Its often on a dark or black background with bright red florals which give it a very rocker/Dia de los Muertos vibe. I love it on jeans, and on knits it gives a very grandma-chic look also! If you’re not too sure about this look you could start incorporating it as accessories such as a embroidered belt or even those gucci floral embossed mules! (I need them in my life!) I personally love it when its teamed with satin like the missguided pink satin coord set – team it up with a band-tee and oversized biker jacket, you get that perfect mix of tough-feminine look!


Style Trend: METALLICS

So this obviously isnt a new trend. And may I say it seems to return every year? I think that this Autumn winter metallics have a prominent feature and instead of wearing them as accessories should really be the feature of your whole look! Wear it as a bold skirt, or amazing jacket! This is obviously not for the faint-hearted, but if you’re feeling the metallics but not quite ready to commit satin is also a really popular trend atm and showing no signs of slowing down!

So that’s it guys, those are some of my favourite trends this Autumn Winter. I definately want to try and incorporate some of them into my look. Which are you most excited about?

My blog posts are all over the place lately, and I’m so sorry about that. I’m trying to stick to my schedule of posting every Monday + Friday, but thats clearly gone out the window. Partly to blame is the fact that I’m currently trying to study for an upcoming exam, and whilst I have a few days of study leave I’m trying to cram up to 10 lectures a day… not really possible.

So I have been meaning to post this look for weekssss now,  and yes, thats exactly how far advanced I am with photos, and if you follow me on instagram you would have already seen sneak previews of this look.

I love how this look/shoot turned out, and I honestly had to painstakingly go through literally hundreds of photos! I’ve tried to narrow it as much as  I can, but forgive me if it’s still an overwhelming amount of photos of me! ahaha.

In this look I’m wearing one of my favourite layering pieces of all time – my shaggy/teddy/rug cream gillet or vest. I purchased this little number from H&M many moons ago, and I love layering it over pants, over skirts, dresses – and I ever layer it over a cardigan to turn it into a coat! In this outfit I’ve chosen to my (one of my many) pair of culottes from topshop, and to keep things simple have just worn a plain white shirt underneath. My reflective sunglasses from cotton on give this outfit a nice pop of interest and complements the gold accent from my LV bag nicely. Of course since everything was pretty neutral, I chose an LV monogram print bag as it would pop really nicely!

And on that note, I thought I would include a little review here about the Pochette Metis as some of my viewers were curious as to why I did not include it as part of my recommended 1st designer handbag.

The Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis

So I dont want to ramble on too much about this bag – if you want a separate review video on wear & tear and thoughts let me know – but as I’ve said some people where curious why I did not feature this on my recent video. The reason being folks is when I think about my first designer handbag (or atleast in my case), I think about a forever bag – in style, in function, in durability and in price point. I want it to be a all-rounder. Now I did not chose to include the Pochette Metis mainly because of all of the problems associated with this bag in the early stages, and also the trendy nature of the bag. I don’t see it as a classic piece just yet, and there have been enough problems brought up about this bag that I refrain from recommending it as a first designer bag. That isn’t to say that every PM has inherent construction problems, because if you look after your bag well, it shouldn’t! But if I had this bag as my first item and I ran into glazing problems or cracking problems right off the bat – I would just not be happy at all!

Now that isn’t to say I wouldn’t recommend this bag at all – because I do! Its a beautiful bag that offers a lot of functionality and versatility, and it’s easily one of my favourite bags from Louis Vuitton. But for reasons I mentioned above, I refrained from recommending it as a first designer piece – and I stress on the word first – because to me, that first bag shoulde the be-all and end-all… and I just don’t feel like this bag is quite there!

This outfit was actually taken a few weeks ago when we had the odd sunny day here and there. I’m wearing one of my favourite layering pieces from Sportsgirl which is this camel oversize utilitarian jacket with short sleeves. It’s perfect for those warmer days where you still want to layer, without overheating.

One of my favourite things to do in Adelaide is stroll down Rundle Mall on the weekend mornings. It’s usually so alive with street musicians, a gorgeous cool breeze on a beautiful sunny day. It’s the perfect way to relax and unwind at the end of a busy week. Sometimes I even just like to sit down and people-watch. Its the most fascinating thing, thinking about what that person’s life might be light, what that day is like for them. Unfortunately this little trip can also be a work out for my wallet because with David jones and myers on either side, its hard to just window shop!
