This August I have put together a little wishlist of cute accessories and items that I am desperate to own! With summer coming up I tried to keep in mind warm summer nights and hot summer days whilst still being able to pair some of these items with a jumper or jeans over in London. I have noticed that I tend to spend a lot of time searching for new clothes but I hardly ever spend time or money on accessories, however lately I am loving purchasing bags, clutches, jewellery and sunglasses and it makes such a difference in turning a good outfit into a great one.
The items in my August Wishlist are as follows:
Wildfox Couture Bel Air Sunglasses
Blue Q Joy Ride Shopper
Her Fashion Box subscription
Dion Lee Light Reflective Pullover
MAC ‘Just a Bite’
Fujifilm Polaroid Camera
Aje Catara Mini Skirt
Dion Lee x Sarah Sebastian Headpiece
Hello Parry Holographic Clutch
Sass and Bide Lace and Elastic Bra
MAC Matte Frost Nail Lacquer
Windsor Smith White Heels
Asos Boyfriend Watch
Open closet Clear Box Clutch
Ryan Storer Earcuff
What’s your August must have?
My friend Annabelle and I tested my gorgeous, British cousins knowledge of Australian Slang.
Turns out I don’t know as much Aussie slang as I thought!
These are the words we tested her on:
Spit the dummy
Have a look how it went!
Although I am so excited to move over to London, there are some things about Australia that I will miss endlessly. It’s pretty rare that in the middle of winter you can lay around in the sun at the beach or just wear a dress, but Australia allows for that. The other day I went for a walk and ended up hurrying home to get my camera after seeing the sunset and a strangers garden. Have a look below.
I am going to miss days like this.
On a couple of occasions I have donned these bad boys out and about and I have noticed that just about everyone who sees them will compliment me or ask me about them!
I am of course talking about these gorgeous mirrored nails that I am so in love with. I first saw a photo of this trend while scrolling on Tumblr and ever since then I was on the hunt!
A lot of people ask me if they are a polish, but they are in fact fake. The brand is 1000hour and they can be bought in very selected stores (I have actually only found one) and are usually priced around 10-15 Australian Dollars.
A glue is provided to apply them and although they are strong and do last about a week or so, I would recommend carrying the glue with you in your bag or wallet just in case you were to knock one off because there’s nothing worse then missing a nail! If long nails aren’t really for you, they can even be cut and filed without ruining the mirrored foil.
Beauty tip: The glue will damage your real nails only slightly by making them rough. The glue can be a little bit stubborn which essentially is what you want since you want the nails to last, however a nail buffer and some moisturiser will help to make your nails smooth and healthy again!
You pretty much can’t go wrong with these, I guarantee that once you wear them you will have multiple questions and admirations.
Buy them HERE.
For such a long time I have been saying over and over about how one day I would love to move to London and begin my life over there.
It has always been something I knew I would do but never really knew when. A few days ago on a bit of a whim I decided to buy myself a one-way ticket.
I am so excited and only a little bit nervous about finally moving to my dream city!
I have only been once before but the city of London has such an impression on me that I knew it was necessary I come back.
The countdown is on until the big move..
