Spring Favourites

There’s nothing I love more than fresh flowers to welcome Spring back into my life, and after receiving this beautiful bunch from a very special someone, I felt inspired to share a few of my other favourite things from the Spring season so far.

Starting with these very pink sunglasses from Zero UV. After a long winter of hibernating and exclusively wearing black, it always takes me a little while to re-introduce colour again. These fun sunnies were the perfect transitional accessory to let the brights come back into my wardrobe.

This very jewelled necklace always helps to step up a simple outfit, pair it with a plain white T-shirt and suddenly your casual outfit is ready for Friday night drinks.

Some other items that made my Spring favourites list were these two creamy lipsticks from Sephora. They not only smell like candy but they also moisturise as much as a lip balm whilst providing a subtle colour. These vanilla scented tealights which instantly make any room feel more cosy, this Flora bra from Lonely Hearts and of course, this new Chanel bag that has barely left my side since it was bought on a recent trip to Rome.

What’s making your favourites list this Spring?

Christmas Wishlist!

Christmas Wishlist!
Since it’s now the season to be jolly and the time for giving (and receiving) I thought I would help out any friends and family who were a little stuck on ideas, and put together a list of things that would make me a happy girl this year.
As the move to London is fast approaching and I’m stressed enough about having to fit my life into one 30kg bag when we all know I could fill that weight with shoes alone, I decided to opt for some smaller items and things that I would put to good use!
Fujifilm Polaroid Camera 
Large Selma Saffiano Satchel 
YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 206
Illamasqua Blush in Excite
Thierry Lasry Orgasmy Sunglasses
Rogue by Rihanna
Frends Taylor Headphones
If I could have fit all of the Rihanna for River Island Collection into this collage, believe me I would have!

TOP FIVE: Perfumes

From left to right

Sweetheart by Ghost

This is my go-to, everyday perfume and probably my ‘signature scent.’ The smell is so fresh and lovable as it’s not too overpowering, even though it carries strong hints of vanilla.  I adore the tall, semi-matte bottle, it’s so simple and easy to carry in your handbag.

Beautiful Love by Estee Lauder

I find this perfume to be lovely and sweet, it smells like magnolia and jasmine with a strong base note that lingers on your skin and clothes. This one is good for all day wear since the smell won’t fade for hours, especially if you spray just a little bit in your hair. In terms of packaging it is quite simplistic, but also very large, so good value for money! I would wear this during Spring/Autumn.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs

Daisy is a gorgeous, floral perfume with a sweet undertone. The packaging is so cute and girly which reflects the scent of the perfume. Daisy is my go-to perfume for when I go out on the town with my friends.

Burberry Brit Eau De Toilette by Burberry

Burberry Brit is a luxurious smelling perfume with hints of vanilla, white peony and almond. It’s quite a seductive perfume in the sense that it smells delicious and lingers on the skin for hours. The packaging is simplistic and very classy. I would typically wear this perfume out to lunch or dinner.

Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf

Flowerbomb is a full-bodied, floral explosion with a slightly musky undertone and it smells absolutely amazing! It’s quite a strong perfume which for me is a good thing since I feel like perfume doesn’t always last on my skin for that long. I also love how the bottle looks like a little grenade made feminine. I would typically wear this perfume to an outdoor event or special occasion.

I always love looking into new perfumes and since Christmas is coming, I would love to hear any recommendations!

With love, Kate xx

AUGUST WISHLIST

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:

Triangl Bikinis 
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
Glass Teapot
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

Summer in Winter

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.
