Happy Easter Long Weekend!

Hey lovelies! 

Happy Easter! I hope you all have enjoyed the break and ate tonnes of chocolate. I planned to spend my 4 day break watching 80's movies, eating a ridiculous amount of easter eggs, sleeping and maybe doing an english essay. Instead, I did all of the following: sleeping, going to the Easter Show, eating, lunch at a family friends, sailing on my grandfather's yacht, watching movies, lunch at my grandmother's and eating a ridiculous amount of easter eggs and bunnies!

It has been an intense few days and I have pretty much forgotten about the fact that I will be up at 6am tomorrow mornign for school. As you can guess, I am not looking forward to it in the least. 

I had lunch today at my grandmother's and this is what I wore:

Dress: Valleygirl
Sandals: Portmans
Bag: Valleygirl
Necklace: CZ and yellow sapphire pendant from Gems Jewellery store in Thailand
Bracelets: usual ones I wear
Eye ring: Butler and Wilson
Kate Middleton-esque ring: Colette by Colette Hayman

During this Easter break, Em and I rented a tonne of movies and also made inspiration boards. I ended up printing out way too many photos for my cork board so I ended up putting the rest on my wardrobe.

We also rented all of these movies but so far have only watched The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off which are both amazing movies that I have not seen in forever. I also watched Chicago last night at about midnight.

I have had a nice and relaxing long weekend full of chocolate and family. Easter is almost like Thanksgiving here in Australia, in the sense that you spend it with your family and all that family-oriented stuff.

Hope you all enjoyed the break!

Lots of love,

Clinique chubby sticks

Hi my loves!

I was super excited to come home after an average, boring school day to find a lovely parcel from Clinique waiting for me. I was excited to find that it contained the items I'd ordered online just 2 days prior. They were my two new chubby sticks.

These are two free samples I received with order and now that I think about it, they may have been thrown out...

L-R: Woppin' Watermelon and Curvy Candy

Photo from my instagram

I have had my eyes on these for ages and finally decided to just go for it and buy them! I chose shade 06 Woppin' Watermelon and shade 14 Curvy Candy. I was led to believe that Woppin' Watermelon was darker than Curvy Candy by the website images, but Curvy Candy is actually the darker shade. This doesn't bother me at all, as they are both two separate shades and both gorgeous.

The best thing about these, besides the awesome names, are the fact that they don't feel like traditional lipsticks. They honestly feel more like gloss but the colour is definitely semi matte like a lipstick. They are also super easy to apply and you can control how much colour you want; apply a single coat for less and multiple coats for a more obvious colour. 

My verdict? Love them! These are the most amazing lipsticks I'ver ever used and their resemblance to giant crayons is adorable. They are easy to use and the colours are wonderful! 

You can check them out here and even purchase some if you like them! 

I have been a huge fan of Clinique for ages, I have been using one of their foundations for years now and I love it, and these chubby sticks have made me fall even more in love with Clinique and their amazing beauty and skincare collections!

Hope you guys are well!

Leopard love + gold detailing

Hi my gorgeous readers!

So a while back it was my younger brother's birthday. He turned 13, meaning he is officially a teenager and I am growing old! I don't have a great recollection of it, but I visited him in the hospital on the day he was born. It honestly feels like it wasn't that long ago that Em and I were dressing him up in all our princess dresses, jewel necklaces and the whole lot because he was too young to protest! I say this so much, but time flies. 

What I wore
Singlet: Zara
Skirt: Cotton On
Belt: Hermes 
Necklace: Diva
Ring: Topshop
Sunglasses: "Chloe" sunglasses from Rubi Shoes
Nail polish: "Golden Eye" from O.P.I's Skyfall collection

These sunnies are amazing! I was so skeptical when I saw them, but my mum convinced me that they looked good on me and that I could pull them off. I like that they are so different; you can't tell from this picture but they are actually hexagon shaped frames! It's a super random sunglass frame shape but nevertheless awesome. I also like them because hexagon's have been my favourite shape for as long as I can remember.

I refer to this necklace, that I got for $6 by the way, as my Doritos necklace because the little triangles are textured and they look like little corn chips!

This ring is super quirky and different to traditional rings which adds to its appeal for me. I wear it loads and it is a lot more comfortable than it looks!

This nail polish is beyond fabulous! I absolutely adore sparkly nails. This gold was super glittery, super sparkly, super girly. I have had a sudden resurgence of love for sparkle and glitter nail polishes and have decided that I should where them more often while I'm still young.

This skirt is my perfect go-to skirt that goes with any look for any occasion. I have literally not taken it off since I bought it a few months back! The flared style is perfectly suited to my body shape as it accentuates my hourglass figure, adn hides my fat!

All my love and I hope you're all well!
