Black and Plaid ft. Windsor Smith


I'm wearing: Jeans - Levis / Sandals - Windsor Smith Chunk / Thrifted plaid vest / Thrifted singlet / Sunnies - Le Specs halfmoon magic / Assorted jewellery / Nails - OPI Willam tell me about OPI
He's wearing: Pants - I Love Ugly / Tee - AS colour / Sneakers - Converse


I decided to do a kinda his and hers outfit post today because I got a sneaky shot of my lovely boyfriend+photographer when he was least expecting it :)

This was today's outfit, just a casual Saturday of which I worked for a few hours and shopped with my boy for the rest - I saw so many amaze things buuuut I'm trying to save; key word trying so I had to restrict myself and only get a few things.
I busted out my trusty highwaisted, black Levis - which everyone needs a pair of in their closet, and my new Windsor Smith sandals which I'm in love with - they're so comfy and add some much needed height, jackpot!
As you can see it was a beaut day here in Wellington today, who even said it was Winter time anyway?
We shot these down by the waterfront and it was just alive with people enjoying the last of the summer sun.
Well I'm keeping it short and sweet again - as always don't forget to hype if you like and why not comment down below and I'll check out your blog :)

Best Mascara EVER


Loreal Telescopic Mascara - Carbon Black $35.99

Finding a great mascara can be tricky, but once I tried this bad boy I knew there was no going back.
I've been using Loreal Telescopic for years now and it's seriously my favourite mascara ever. I've tried so many different brands and types as I luuurve emphasising my lashes and nothing compares to this.
I like to enhance the length of my lashes - I'm not so worried about volumising, and don't actually mind a bit of clump like others do. I'm lucky enough to have quite naturally curled lashes, so don't curl them and therefore can't speak of the curling abilities either.
 

My favourite things have to be the brush and the formula. The brush is made out of rubber, it has 4 rows of little bristles and is really flexible so can get all of the hard to reach places like the inner and outer corners. It's also nice and small unlike the Maybelline Colossal Mascara which I mentioned a few posts back, this small brush helps to avoid getting mascara all around the eye and messing up the perfect base you've probably just applied.
The formula is really nice too, it doesn't get flaky or dry towards the end of the day and also doesn't have any weird funky smell to it.
It does a fab job at lengthening the lashes, but doesn't do much in the way of volume but I'm not worried about that.
The packaging is nice and sleek, and the 'handle' a good size so you have quite nice control over the wand.


Overall there's nothing I can fault with this mascara, it's the bomb. I continue to repurchase it over and over again I don't see myself looking for a new one any time soon. It's got the perfect formula, colour and brush so is definitely a keeper in my books!

Head To Toe Vintage


Everything you see is Vintage/Thrifted/Op-Shop, apart from my massive bag which is some from some cheapo shop ages ago. This would be a very pocket friendly outfit if I could remember exactly how much everything cost me.... I'm thinking each garment would be around $10 - so it's a pretty sweet deal if I do say so myself.

I dragged these items out of the back of my draws after having forgot about them for so long, and they kind of re-ignited my old love of Vintage clothing. I love the look and feel of them and the fact that I can walk down the street knowing I won't pass loads of girls wearing the exact same pieces, which can often be the case.. cringe.

It's hand-in time again for me, which means late nights accompanied by many cups of tea and gingernut biscuits, and if I'm lucky I might be able to talk my boyfriend into staying up and keeping me company.
I've got to keep it short and sweet as must continue on with my Fashion illustrations.. which I may just post on here depending on how they turn out ;) Oh the internet is such a distraction.

Unitll then, I hope you all have a lovely evening. I'm sorry for the lack of posts last week, things all got a tad crazy, but you can keep up to date with what's been going on by connecting with me on -  FACEBOOK | BLOGLOVIN | LOOKBOOK | INSTAGRAM

Just Ya Normal Sunday Morning Activity



Who doesn't love a good hike at 4am on your Sunday morning. 
As you may or may not know I was at my parents home for a lovely break for a week or so this week just been.
I decided it would be a great idea to convince my Family to wake up at 4am with me and hike up the Mount. It wasn't too hard - Mum, Dad and my Sister were all keen, my brother - not so much.
The lights looked so gorgeous on the way up, it was so surreal climbing up it in the pitch black, then once we reached the top we watched the sun rise which was so pretty.
It was definitely a different type of Sunday morning, not my normal 9am sleep in that's for sure!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and I have plenty of outfit photos ready to edit and upload this week

Weekly Highs + Lows #1


Highs;
1. Currently sitting in my bedroom at my parents house, listening to the chirp of birds, the sing of cicadas and actually feeling the sun on my back(see above). Cupboards stocked with food and last but not least; Fresh fish, fruit and veges. A lovely change from Windy Wellington - insert car alarms and club music at all hours here.

2. Verrry exciting job opportunities (hopefully).

3. Arriving home to my parents and my puppy still remembering me. I was scared he would forget, even though I'm his fav.

4. Lists, and loads of them.

5. Getting my hurr did. I used to be so anal about my hair getting cut and would only let the hairdressers take off the tiniest bit. Not I'm addicted to the chop, it just feels so much better - More chic I think. 

6. All of the hustle and bustle of Wellington Fashion week right on my doorstep, unfortunately I couldn't attend because of my long lists of work, but fun to observe none the less.

7. Being spoiled with lunch dates, fresh fish and scallops - theres something about Uni student that screams 'I need Food'. I'm being showered in it. Save me.

8. Finally making a Facebook page for my blog - but it's lonely and needs likes so click here to have a stalk.

9. Dragging my family up at 4am this morning to go for a hike in the dark and watch the sun rise with me. More on that tomorrow :)

All i'll say is that it's been a long day.


Lows;
1. The huge ichy-bite thing that appeared on my cheek the other night, currently sporting a huge red mountain and I am not a happy camper. I must add it makes me want to scratch my cheek off. Think I jinxed myself in my last post - Oh the joys of over sensitive skin.

2. Loads of Uni work that won't do itself. Rats.

3. Being up since 3 this morning - was going to make a spontaneous McDonalds pancake trip with the boyf, but we decided on scrambled eggs instead. Dining fine or fining dine? Finally feeling the burrrrrn. I need my beauty sleep.

The Oversized Knit Cardigan


Oversize Cardigan - Glassons / Top - Supre / Printed Pants - MadLove / Shoes - Bronx Creeper Booties / Socks - Asian Boutique

I'm loving this long oversized knit from Glassons, it's so snugly and warm and reminds me of the Cardi that Sammi featured on her blog back in December, here.
This was an outfit from earlier this week while I was back in Wellington - I'm now at my parents house for a few days which has been lovely so-far. Although today the weather is not soo nice, my Mum and Sister and I are going out to lunch and to go girly things and chill.
I forget how nice it is to be home sometimes.
Car alarms, music pumping at 4 in the morning and sirens are just a few of the things I don't miss while being here. I've been enjoying family company and delish food, also my old bed is the bomb!
  I got my hair cut shorter which I'm excited about, but now I want to go even shorter now? Check my instagram selfie out and tell me what you think?
Note; it's not short in this pic :)
