New Years Eve

How us it this time of year already? This year has passed incredibly fast, so much has happened. It's like every year gets faster as it comes. Anyway I wish you and your family all the best for the new year! Stay safe tonight when partying and have a lovely time.
I still can't believe it's 2013 tomorrow! I'm going to try this thing I found on tumblr this year where you get a jar or a book or something and write down everything good that happened that year and at the end of the year you see everything awesome that happened! I know it sounds kind of cheesy but I'd love to actually remember what happens in the entire year. ( I have a bit of a problem with remembering things)
Farewell 2012!!

Boxing day sales part 2!

As you all know I am a mad bargain shopper! So this is what I came out with on boxing day (it really doesn't feel like that was only 2 days ago). Boxing Day in Australia is the equivalent of I think black friday for Americans? Either way, the city was bursting at the seams with eager shoppers ready to fight their way to the perfect pair of whatever. I left the house at 8.20am, making it to the city at around 9.15am. Already the shops were filled, people had been there til 5! (CRAZY!). I met up with friends and the shopping began.
Apologies for all the wrinkles in the clothes, I've only just had a chance to take them out of the bags.
 Aqua pastel jumper from Topshop Au $13. The second most expensive thing I bought all day (only after the tye dye jeans), only for Topshop. After battling the crazy lines to get in I felt like I had to buy something for all the effort. It was actually my first time since the opening of Topshop Au and I was pleasantly surprised! If I was allowed to buy shorts I would have gone crazy because they have the most gorgeous dyed shorts in Topshop.
 Pastel patterned top from Factorie $5.  As you can tell, I have a thing for pastel...But $5!!
 Blue top Factorie $5
 Cotton On white button up shirt $10
 Cotton On blue top $5
 Denim button up shirt JayJays $10. It's like a really light blue.
 Studded top from Temt- $7.50
 Tye Dye Jeans from Cotton On- $15
Typo 2013 Diary 'From Paris' $2 and Luck Popcorn Lip Scrub- $5. How cute is the diary, and the lip scrub tastes amazing, kind of caramelly. It's really cool and it's edible! But yes, that was half off so I figured might aswell. I wanted the strawberry one but it sold out :(
Earcuff from Topshop for $7! I don't usually buy jewellery for over $5 but I made an exception for Topshop again...And I really wanted a earcuff type thing so this was perfect.
So all up I spent $84....for me that's quite a lot of money but considering the amount of things I bought it's pretty good! + $8.40 for lunch I had a chicken and avocado crepe which was amazing, yum....Let me know, did you manage to bag a bargain this boxing day? Did you go home empty handed, did you not bother to leave the house at all? xxx

Boxing Day Sales!

Boxing day sales are always the peak of my shopping year, one year I bought clothes boxing day and didn't buy clothes for a whole year. I think I did quite well this year! I came home with this lot (excuse my ugly floor), shopping day successful! Although I did forget to buy what I needed to buy...Triple A batteries for my guitar tuner...woops.

This year the Boxing day sales weren't as good as I expected them to be honestly,  you really had to dig to find a bargain this time. Last year was definitely a better sale. Maybe if it was larger objects I was searching for I would've found the sales better. Stores for those with a larger budget definitely had their day.With lines for each shop spilling over the corner, the city was impossible to go for a quick shop. I might do a post about what I bought later on!
Hope you're all enjoying the holidays xx

Merry Christmas!

For the first time ever, Sydney is having a cold christmas. It's raining rather than heated over the top. If only there was snow! That's kind of unaustralian and I'm not really digging it, but oh well I don't even celebrate so I don't know why I'm complaining!
Anyway Merry Chrismas to all my followers, I hope you have a lovely holiday xxx

end of the world, part 2 + camouflage

Yes, we made it. Congratulations to you all who made it through the horror of the apocalypse! Seriously guys, we made it through this;
That has got to be somewhat of an achievement right...right?
Anyway all humour aside, I was going to show you the tops I made for the end of the world party but no one ended up wearing them and I guess they weren't that great so that's not going to happen. They were basically camouflage tank tops and t-shirts though.
And speaking of camouflage, that's the biggest trend I've been seeing lately! I intern at a PR company on Mondays and ofcourse PR companys are always on trend, fashion forward, etc etc. I noticed that a lot of the clothes that are coming out now are camo/khaki related! So naturally I went to lookbook for some guidance and did some research on this whole camo phenomenon and what do you know...a whole bunch of the looks included some form of camo! Streetwear fashion freaks have picked up on the trend all around the world and I am absolutely loving it.
