Back with a BANG

So as you may (or may not) have noted, I have not been posting this past couple of weeks. This is due to a number of reasons, finishing my Uni semester, assessments and hanging out with this cute little kitten:

But I promise that this little guy, (and his equally adorable sister puppy) will NOT distract me any longer! I've finally got more free time on my hands than I know what to do with, and I will put it to good use. Stay tuned for more posts to come!!

Wednesday Wantday

Wednesday Wantday

As you might be able to tell from this weeks edit - I spent a lot of time on the Mango website.   It is so great for chic items to class up your wardrobe, from day to night and work to play.

strength, courage and perseverance

If you are lacking in courage or motivation today - please watch this speech.

As I understand it, America is clearly coming up to and celebrating graduations - a very different timelines from us here in Australia! As a result many commencement speeches are doing the rounds on Youtube, but none captured my attention such as this one. Parker Mantell speaks beautifully of disability and self motivation - and the courage to proceed despite odds you may face.

I wanted to share this for a couple of reasons. In the past I have struggled with my own mental health, and so when I come across inspiring messages such as this, I store them away for a time when I'm not feeling so comfortable, healthy or calm. End of semester is coming up, and along with that exams, deadlines and stress. This speech puts in perspective that all this study is for a purpose and will amount to something. It's the little reminders like this that help keep me going.
The second reason is wanting to share it with you. Perhaps you need motivation, a reality check or a kind message to keep you going. I hope you get from this what you need, share it with friends, family.

It's a truly great speech that deserves a watch!

Wednesday Want-day

Wednesday Want-day

I always find out what trend I'm feeling after I post a Wednesday Wantday collection after I post it, and this week apparently its pastels! I think the eggshell blue I've become obsessed with lately is something you can wear in the summer as a light breezy option, and also in the winter to add some colour to your (well maybe just me) darker wardrobe.

I'm loving brogues at the moment and here are two fab options for you. The light pink is so cute and could work with a myriad of outfits and personally I think they would look great with a little dress. The espadrille flatform I think it so stylish - you could wear with pants, dresses, playsuit etc. Good for a beachy vibe or a casual wintery look.

The bathers are probably not very useful for anyone going into winter but I just really like them ok?!? All I have to do is find a pair of high waisted bikinis that suit me...

Anyway, enjoy the edit! What are you loving this week?

Wednesday Want-day - ASOS Special

Wednesday Want-day - ASOS Special

This week, if you're a student I'm sure you would have gotten the notification that you can receive 25% of your order with ASOS for the next 48 hours, and so in the spirit of sales I've decided to do a special addition collection of purely ASOS items - my version of the ASOS Daily Edit if you will.
This is definitely the chance for you to buy whatever you've stocked up in your saved items list!!
I've chosen a range of items, from floral floaty pieces for those going into summer and some more transeasonal pieces and everyday items.
As you know I'm constantly on the look out for bags and I think these two options are really cute. Reasonably sized, with interesting colours to add a pop to your outfit! The two I've chosen will suit classically dressed girls and alternatively dressed girls. The cat purse I've added in there is just so cute everyone should buy it.
The shoes I think are sooo trendy - getting a bit of a Jane Birken vibe from them. Definitely saw Miranda Kerr wearing something similar HERE. A twist on the relaxed and casual shoe.
The two piece and the jumpsuit in particular reminded me so much of the brand Reformation I couldn't add them in as well, an affordable version finally!!

Anyway hope you enjoyed the ASOS edit and stay tuned for business as usual in the next post!
