The $20 Maxi Dress You Need In Your …

I am seriously obsessed with maxi dresses at the moment. While I used to be all about the above-the-knee dresses, as I get older I’m embracing the more flowy and easy to wear styles. I’ve already written before about my love for maxi dresses at this time of the year, as they hide the fact that I’m still looking more…

A Morning With Jan Lane Beauty Therapist

Earlier in the week, I went in for a morning of beauty therapy with Jan Lane. She is a qualified beauty therapist, with a practise in Mosgiel, Dunedin and I have to say she is one of the nicest people I’ve met. As soon as you walk in to her beautiful clinic, you feel instantly welcome. Jan is bubbly and…

90’s Fashion Trends: 5 Trends That Are Back!

Oh the 90’s…. a time I look back on and think “what the hell was I wearing?!” I was born in 1989, so I grew up as totally a 90’s kid. It was the time of daggy dressing and bowl cuts, and when I look back on photos of myself back then I can’t help but cringe just a little.…

Brunette to Blonde: My Hair Transformation

Over the past few months, I’ve been making a rather dramatic transformation to my hair. It wasn’t until I started editing the photos for this post, that I realised just how dark my hair used to be! Today I thought I’d share with you how my hairdresser transformed my hair from a dark brown, to a summery sun-kissed blonde. I…

My Easy Halloween Costume: Halloween 2017

While Halloween isn’t as popular here as it is in the States, it’s definitely gaining momentum year after year. I remember when I was a kid, Halloween was something that was never really celebrated and the stores never really had a lot of Halloween costumes or decorations. I went trick or treating only once as a kid (and of course…

My Natural Everyday Makeup Routine

You guys might have noticed I’ve been a little bit better with my posting over the past couple of months. I’m trying to stick to a bit of a blogging schedule, posting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I ended up missing last Friday as I just wanted to have a little bit of a long weekend with no computers! It…

How I Broke My Coffee Addiction

While I wouldn’t say I was coffee addict per se, it’s definitely something I used to have quite a lot of. I would enjoy 2-3 cups a day at my peak coffee drinking times, which I know isn’t much compared to some people (I used to know a guy who had 11 cups by lunchtime!). But caffeine does have quite…

Eco Tan Invisible Tan Review

There’s been a few days lately that I’ve had my shorts on, and it’s made me realise that boy oh boy my legs are pale! Of course while there is nothing wrong with being pale (and I often embrace it!), I do like a little bit of colour on my skin, especially on my legs. A slight tan helps to…

We Bought A House + Goodbye Dunedin?

Aaah yes you read that title right, we have finally bought a house! I never thought this day would actually come as it’s been a long time in the making! I actually started looking for a house to buy about five years ago. Clearly I’m extremely picky as I never found anything that I actually loved. Nearly two years ago,…
