The Little White Dress // OOTD

Moody, dressed-down approach to the little white dress

Shoes: Ego Shoes // Dress: Glassons // Necklace: Glassons // Bag: Vintage   

I hope everyone is having a great day! This post is a little more moody (I wanted to dress down the outfit a little bit). I feel like the linen look is really in at the moment, and this dress compliments that trend perfectly. I paired the dress with a minimal gold necklace and a brown leather bag to give the outfit a more classic vibe. I hope you guys enjoy!

How To: Dewy "No-makeup" Look ft ClearSponge // Aka - The Silicone Sponge ☆

Talk-through tutorial / review of ClearSponge Australia  





The following opinions are entirely my own,  I was not paid to write this post,  however I was sent the product to give a go * 

  
I was fortunate enough to be contacted by ClearSponge and told they would like to send me one of their silicone sponges to try. To be honest, I was delighted because I'd been eyeing their Instagram for about a week and was actually going to purchase one myself within the next few days.

Before ClearSponge, I'd honestly never heard of this beauty"revolution", and was quite intrigued and even a little weary to begin with.

The "sponge" itself is quite small, flat and strange-looking. However, when I used it for the first time I realised how convenient the size actually is. It allows you to get to the places beauty blenders don't really do a good job at (like under your eyes and the sides of your nose, for example).

On top of this, It's so much more hygienic as bacteria an germs don't hide in the spores like what occurs with beauty blenders (I've heard horror stories about them growing mould). Also, you only need 50% of the product you would usually use.

Primer, foundation and concealer go on like a dream. All you have to do is put a little bit of the product on the sponge, and work in circular motions across your face and target areas. The blending is nothing short of airbrushing as no product is absorbed into the sponge (meaning it's not patchy whatsoever) and the clean up afterwards is quick and easy.

The One Book All Ambitious Women Should Read This Year // Ft. Nasty Galaxy

The book to read if you want to embrace the things you love and be successful 








FIRST IMPRESSION:

"Cute, intriguing cover but what the hell could it be about? What's a 'Nasty Galaxy?'"

I first discovered this book at random. I'd never heard of it (but I'd heard of Sohpia's first book, #girlboss) and was instantly intrigued because, I mean...what a strange name for a book. 

Flicking through the first few pages I became aware that I had no clue was was going on. What about the randomly scattered sarcastic astrology excerpts? Song lyrics stretched across pink pages? Interior design, devilled eggs? What did these have to do with anything? I guess you could say I was already obsessed.

Apricot / Light Burgundy Smokey Eyes & Glowy Skin

Summer Inspired Makeup Look




Hi Everyone!


So today I decided to try something a little different. I love makeup, but personally I like to stick to the "as natural as possible" look (minimal products on the face, neutral palette for the eyes and nude lips) however today I decided to play around and see what I could come up with. This look was inspired by sunny days transitioned into hot summer nights (pretty sure we all know those, especially if you live in Australia like me).

What I Eat In A Day // Vegan Meal Ideas

 First things first; I don't know how to cook. Thats not to say I can't, because I can - however I just don't know a lot of meals. I always say that the few (exactly 3 meals) I can cook are pretty good (if I do say so myself). 

I'm all for easy, healthy meals and snacks that require minimal effort and include a lot of taste. Today I'm just going to share a few of my favourite foods that I eat pretty much on a daily basis.

BREAKFAST

AVOCADO ON GLUTEN FREE TOAST W/ DUKKAH, NUTRITIONAL YEAST, PEPITA SEADS, SUNFLOWER SEADS, CELTIC SEA SALT AND FRESH LEMON JUICE

My all time favourite thing in the world is avocado. I have somewhat perfected the art of salt-pepper-lemon juice ratio that the perfect avocado on toast requires. This one is super, super easy (and doesn't need all the fancy things seen in the title- that's just what we made that day).
