So, I’ve gone ahead and neglected my blog despite me telling everyone that I love photography and blogging. -sigh-
Unfortunately my laptop has been on the mend, which has my photo editing software, thereby inhibiting me from being able to blog. Or so I’d like to think. But in all honestly, I hate editing photos. I admit the finished products look amazing when edited, but ughhh give me a easy way of editing such as VSCOCAM on my phone please!
If anyone knows of a program similar to VSCOCAM for windows/mac please let me know… my life would be so much easier!
Anyways, here are some photos I have taken TODAY, and edited TODAY, and uploaded TODAY.
Yes, no stale outfits from 2 – 3 months ago, this is fressssssh off the press baby!
If you guys arent aware, I’ve gone back into making youtube videos. And I’ve enjoyed it immensely. But gosh, to work, youtube AND blog… is it going to be too much?
Luckily I’ve deferred the Diploma I was supposed to complete this year for next year, so atleast for the rest of the year I can focus on my extracurricular activities. LOL.
Meanwhile, it’s been hot in Adelaide. HOT HOT HOT. And today as absolutely disgusting. I wore this little number just out to the park, and later on to IKEA. (God I love that place!) The hat was utilised purely for distraction as my hair was absolutely foul. Regardless, hope you enjoy!
Shirt – Valleygirl
Denim Jacket – Target
Shorts – Thrifted

Well well, its been a while. I know, here she goes again at trying to blog and then failing miserably in the next 2-3 months, and completely deserting it again for 1 year. I know.
There isn’t much to say, without choking on a whole lot of excuses. To be honest, I’ve just been busy, and when I’m not busy I’m too lazy.
I’ve decided to go back into blogging because I need a space for thoughts, and essentially and outlet for my creativity. I dont think I’ll be going back into making videos any time soon because let’s face it takes too much of my time. Filming hasn’t come quite naturally for me as photography does. I enjoy taking photos, I enjoy editing photos, and I enjoy looking at photos. Sure, videos are wonderful, but I dont enjoy editing them as much as I do filming them. I can tell you right now, I have over 50 videos worth of footage that I have not edited. From ombre hair tutorials, to makeup tutorials, from hauls to tag videos, to vlogs. I literally have enough footage material to make 50 videos. Are they ever going to see the light of day? I have no idea. Just the thought of editing them… well, needless to say it’s certainly not lighting a fire in my belly.
So, I have succumbed to blogging. I’ve recently re-joined the instagram world, and needless to say I am ADDICTED. I love editing those little pictures and posting them. Lets not kid ourselves, it’s a lazy girl’s blog. HA. Anyways, I’ve really enjoyed fashion blogs and I’ve enjoyed posting outfit pics on instagram, so why the hell not try my hand at the blogging game again. So, here goes!
I will be posting some outfits that I’ve already featured on my instagram, so sincere apologies. But I’ll scatter them out, and throw in some pics of my trip to melbourne and sydney, and also some more europe trip pictures that I haven’t quite gotten around to editing… oops.
Hi Everyone I’ve just returned from the provinces for my grandmother’s funeral. I do want to dedicate a separate post for her but I guess now is not the right time. Overall, the trip was nice and I was able to finally get closure. However I do still feel like it’s unreal somewhat, and I have to keep reminding myself that she really is gone.
I do have some videos that I would like to edit and have up so stay tuned for that, but for now I figured that easiest thing to update would be this blog with an outfit post that I wore just the other day. Not much to say about this outfit but I am absolutely loving these faux-leather shorts from newlook that I was lucky to find in the kids section. I’m telling y’all, dont knock it until you try it. I usually find my wonderfully form-flattering clothing pieces from the kids section, so definately hit it up! Also would like to thank my beautiful little sister (who is only just 11yo) for taking these lovely pics. Thanks babygirl <3
So on with the pictures!

Hi everyone! So for those who follow me on instagram and facebook, you probably would have known that on the 20th of July I celebrated my 23rd birthday which I may add was a very hectic 24hrs.
I’m also currently in the philippines at the moment for my grandmother’s funeral which will take place on Saturday. I really dont want to get into it right now, mostly because I still feel like it’s still some horrible dream.
Nonetheless, I apologise greatly for my lack of videos because the internet has not been the best and I actually tried to upload a haul vid yesterday and it gave me an estimation of 4000hrs to upload…. needless to say, it just didnt happen.
Hopefully you guys wont mind if I upload the vids when I get home where I have faster internet!
So before I go, I thought I’d include some pictures of my makeup and outfit of the night, plus some photos from the night of my birthday. Initially I was a bit disappointed that I would be flying on my birthday, but I guess it’s a blessing in disguise and then I was able to celebrate it with my family for the first time in years 🙂

So it has definitely been too long since my last blog post, and many apologies for that. However, the past few weeks I was having problems with flickr which is where I upload my photos, and furthermore I’ve just generally felt a bit too lazy to blog. I really want to change the layout of my blog because it’s just so… blah.
First and foremost, I want to say thank you to the overwhelming number of responses I got (and still get) from my past posts. I’m really so lucky to have stumbled onto the world of youtube and blogging and to have received so much support from people I have never met, but I regard as my friends. Really is amazing.
Anyways, I just wanted to update this because it’s embarassing how dead it is at the moment. So here’s an outfit post for you all, showing how I wore this gorgeous newlook top that I featured in my fashion haul video which I will include a link to below as well.

PS – Before anyone comments, it’s not ALWAYS cold where I live. In fact, it’s been quite hot & humid the past couple of days 🙁
As if that wasnt bad enough, I have been terrible and shopping so much this month too! I think because it’s my birthday month that I’m just secretly telling myself that it’s acceptable. I’ve actually purchased a bunch of stuff online that hopefully will be coming soon so I can film yet ANOTHER haul! haha. I’ll probably have to break it up into parts because there’s so much.
But as always, there are still always items that are somewhat out of our reach but we always lust for. My biggest debate is whether I want to invest in a rose gold watch. I love the highly coveted MK Rose gold watches, but I havent been able to bring myself to spend the $$$. And if I do get one, not sure if I should go for the trendy “Rose Gold” or if I should stick to the ever so reliable “Gold”. Please let me know your opinions! And if you have one, how much do you LOVE it? haha.
And of course, I want the ever so popular double strap Zara heels that can be found almost ANYWHERE. Not sure who started it (Alexander Wang?) but I love the simple minimalistic but classy feel to it. I’m actually currently bidding on a pair on ebay, so wish me luck!!
Well, i think i’ll end it here for now. Goodnight y’all!
