Having always loved to take photos, be in photos or even just be around when photos are happening, it was no surprise that I found myself taking photos (albeit primarily of myself) for a living, what was a surprise though is that between all the content production, collaborations, photoshoots and I guess really what should actually be referred to as ‘work’ (although it never really feels that way), I sometimes forget to take photos – just for the sake of taking photos! You know, the kind of shots you take purely for memories or just because. So with a sudden urge to get back into taking photos just because – I thought I’d bring around a disposable camera with me for a week to encourage me to take more photos just for fun! Plus, a disposable camera felt so very fitting as when I was a kid I could barely get enough of them. I would quite literally bring a disposable camera to school/camp/any-somewhat-social-activity-happening-in-the-life-of-a-10-year-old and the spend the following week begging my mum to go get it developed ASAP. Ironically, a lot of the photos I took were of myself all dressed up in different outfits I had put together using clothes from my mums wardrobe or clothes that I had made – but that is a story for another day. So anyways, here you have it – my week from the eyes of a disposable camera. The quality is kind of questionable, compared to the usual DSLR and I chose not to edit or process any of the photos, which again I thought was a nice change from my more curated content.
I recently styled a couple of weekend outfits, featuring items available from GLUE STORE. I have been a huge fan of GLUE STORE for as long as I can remember, they are sort of just my go-to for all things denim and cool. With a wide variety of brands in varying price ranges, they really do have something for every occasion and everyone. I played around with an all-black, polka-dot look for my first outfit and added some double strap black heels for a point of difference (and to mix-up always wearing boots/sneakers). With my second outfit, I couldn’t go past these mid-blue denim LEVIS, slightly dressed up with a lace khaki camisole.

I have always had a real thing for black ankle boots, particularly the pointed toe, slightly heeled, 100% genuine leather kind. I tend to wear them literally all year round. Whether this is because I am just not really a sandal/thong-kind-of-gal, or rather that I actually enjoy having uncomfortably hot feet in summer – either way, you’d have a hard time finding a day of the week I’m not in boots. I think I just love what black boots do to an outfit. It doesn’t really matter what you’re wearing; a black boot will always give the look a slightly more edgy, masculine feel, which has always been a big element of my personal style. Especially on days where I feel like wearing a more girly dress, or ruffled details – black boots will dress down the look to make it a bit cooler and more me.
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As a long-term lover of GRANA, this month I wanted to share with you how I am styling their amazing new GRANA MOVE collection. Although not one to usually be found at the gym, I am definitely partial to a long power walk, especially if there is an iced-latte and my best friend involved. As my exercise isn’t really what one would called ‘strenuous’, I like to make sure I’m feeling alarmingly fashionable even when working out. This is easily achieved with GRANA’s new MOVE collection. With a huge variety of cuts and colours on offer, they really do have something for everyone. I particularly love this red wine legging paired with the lighter lilac top. I also played around with a couple of different cardigan colours below to show you how versatile the colours really are!
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As a long-term lover of GRANA this month I wanted to share with you my favourite two items from their amazing 100% silk range. I couldn’t go past this ridiculously chic, monochromatic silk bomber jacket. Apart from being a super on trend piece, it is also really versatile and can be worn with so many different looks. I also totally fell in love with this silky red slip dress. I’ve been wearing it over tees, over jeans and under chunky jumpers, with sneakers, heels and ankle boots!
With Christmas right around the corner, getting all my Christmas presents sorted for my closest friends and family is my number one priority. For all the lovely ladies in my life, who are far too fabulous to receive anything but an absolutely amazing gift, I always opt to give them a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers. Having always loved fresh flowers for as long as I can remember, I truly believe there is nothing more special and personalised than receiving a beautiful bouquet of florals. Aside from brightening up your day, they add a certain warmth and air of happiness to any room. This year I will be purchasing said flowers from the beautiful team at Interflora Australia. Apart from offering a wide range of stunning Christmas-inspired collections, their quality, same-day delivery and customer service is like no other.
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! I’ve been so excited to share with you my take on AMBRA’S amazing premium activewear range AMBRA ACTIVE! Apart from being totally seamless and thus super stretchy, comfortable and ideal for exercise, the range is crazy fashionable and can literally be worn from yoga to a café. Just swap your favourite AMBRA ACTIVE seamless leggings for some denim and/or a bomber jacket to create a super chic, easy café ready look straight after exercising. My favourite piece from their new premium activewear collection is definitely the Sport Luxe 2.0 Zip Jacket in black. It is super stretchy, lightweight and ideal for exercise but doubles as a totally fashionable throw-over when not working out. I also really love the thumbhole detail, which adds a bit of extra warmth on colder mornings before your body has warmed up! I also couldn’t go past the Sport Luxe 2.0 Crop and Active Rib Tank given the slimming fit and wearability of both pieces!
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! Just swinging by this evening to share with you my new favourite timepiece from one of my all-time (#puns), favourite watch brands, Daniel Wellington. With the launch of their latest timepieces, I really do feel this all-black-with-gold-detailing-watch was the final item missing from my little collection. Apart from being an incredibly chic, timeless (#SoManyPuns) piece, the luxe detail and finish makes it perfect to pair back with slightly more dressier looks, like this V-neck black silk top from Style Addict, oversized mum jeans from Assembly the Label and slip on loafers.
In collaboration with TheRaces.com.au – the hottest new fashion and lifestyle destination for all things RACES, I wanted to share with you my ultimate Race Day outfit for the season.
In collaboration with TheRaces.com.au – the hottest new fashion and lifestyle destination for all things RACES, I wanted to share with you the beauty essentials that I pack inside my bag for the day.
First things first, you need a bag. Not just any bag. The bag has to match your outfit, compliment your shoes, and be big enough to fit a bunch of stuff but small enough that it does not inconvenience your race-day-existence. Tricky I know. For this crazy bag contradiction, I recommend a slightly oversized clutch (brownie points if it comes with a cross-body chain strap) in the designer variety. I’ve picked the Givenchy Antigona Envelope Leather Clutch by Cosette.com.au.
