YVES ROCHER BLACK FRIDAY

Hey guys,

Just a quick post today to share with you a great offer from one of my favourite brands Yves Rocher. You might remember I did a review of their perfume not too long ago - still one of my faves! They're currently holding a huge Black Friday sale in which many of their products are a massive 70% off, so be quick and grab a bargain whilst you can.

Missed Black Friday? Not to worry, you can still shop their Christmas sale.





Happy bargain hunting. Shop Yves Rocher here: http://www.yves-rocher.co.uk/control/main/

LUNA PARK

Yo,

Still chillin' in Melbourne. Winter has finally gone hoorah, not a lot to report this end, just working working saving saving for my next adventure to Central/South America. My housemate Zack and I took a trip to Brighton Beach and Luna Park, mainly for the super cool exterior. Weird clown scary face, what a great excuse for some cute new blawg photos huh? Kinda impossible not to get photo bombed by snotty five year old's and their parents but this has to be the best entrance to an amusement park like eva? Tnx Missguided for the cute shirt dress also.

Just a quick one from me today, got work! 

Until next time....

RAINBOW CROCHET

Helloo,

I've been super duper busy recently so have only just had the time to edit these photos to post. I recently worked at the Melbourne Gift Fair exhibition on a stall 'Cool Coconut' - jewelery made from cocounut shell - cool huh? It was so much fun, can't wait to meet up with the guys again in sunny Byron Bay. At the show we were exhibiting next to a brand selling handmade items from Nepal. A few of you might know I recently spent a few months in India and am obsessed with the Indian/Nepalese style so when I found out they were selling off their samples I jumped at the chance to buy this super cute rainbow handmade crochet scarf...I have to be so selective when i'm travelling not to buy much as I have no room but couldn't resist this!

But for now i'm currently working at the feminine and sassy Aussy fashion retailer Alannah Hill, trying to work as much as possible to save up those dollar bills...

In recent year I've become increasingly concious of where my clothing/accessories are being made and from what materials, which is why when Jord Watches got in contact with me offering me the chance to review one of their wooden timepieces made from sustainable materials I couldn't wait to receieve it. I love the natural look of this watch and it's very easy to style up, matching almost all outfits.

What do you think of this outfit? Have you considered buying a wooden watch?

SMILE BRILLIANT TEETH WHITENING


I often get asked to sample/review various sorts of items on my blog. I love the variety of branching out into different areas and not necessarily sticking just to fashion as I think it gets a bit tedious outfit post after outfit post, so a bit of change up is always a good thing right? It’s exciting writing about something new and hopefully exciting to read too! :)

I was recently contacted by a great company [Smile Brilliant] and asked to test out their teeth whitening treatment. For me, whitening treatments are one of those things that i’ve always looked at in drug stores and thought okay there’s way too much choice and this looks kinda confusing so have put it to the back of mind. Having braces for 2 years when I was younger was awful and I guess i’ve always been slightly conscious about teeth so any product that claims to improve them is always great! 

I have now completed 4 courses of the whitening over the course of a month and the whole experience has been seamless. When the kit first arrived at my door I did feel like this was going to be mission impossible but the lovely Carmen talked me through every step making the entire process very simple to understand. The kit actually comes with fool proof instructions also ironing out any problems you think you will encounter. 

My teeth have never been hugely yellow but they’re definitely not gleaming white either so I was excited to find out really how white this product could make my teeth. 

The kit includes: Teeth whitening trays, carry case, impression material, custom dental models, professional teeth whitening gel, desensitizing gel and (fool proof) instructions. 


Here are the before and after snaps which speak for themselves! I moved house between photos so the lighting is slightly different but I can definitely see a difference.


So far I have only completed 4 sessions, there are many more to come and so the results will continue to get better!

Session 1: 55 mins
Session 2: 60 mins
Session 3: 65 mins
Session 4: 60 mins

Thanks so much Carmen for organising everything and being so patient. I would highly recomend Smile Brilliant for a professional, positive and effective teeth whitening experience.

MELBOURNE

Hellooo,

I know i've been neglecting the blog a bit recently whilst I travel as it's been so hard to keep updated whilst not having a permanent address. But finally yay i'm in Melbourne and have a super cool house right in the city so at last will hopefully be able to upload some outfits (when I can persuade my bf to take them lol). So apparently Melbourne is the fashion capital of Aus right? I really have no excuse. Can't wait to get my head down in a job now for the duration, it's been too long. So nice to feel settled again. Anyway there's so many cool backdrops around the city so i'm not short of those, just need to go shopping now and update my backback with some new city sassy threads.  





Sweater - MinkPink outlet ($35/£17) // Jeans Joni - Topshop £35ish // Pony hair pumps - Zu $30/£15

A really simple outfit today, but i'm in love with these new cute pony hair slip ons - absolute bargain at only $30 (£15) but shame they give me huge blisters WAH. But all is well, there is a MINKPINK OUTLET on my road, seriously yes! So that's where every single thing I own is going to be from soon eek.

What do you guys think of this outfit? Are any of my followers from Melbourne? Would looove to talk to you about cool places to go see/visit.

Peaceeee,
