The Questionnaire //

  1. How would you describe your blog?

I think it could be considered a lifestyle blog, I post about clothing that I like, places that I go and really just anything that I feel like posting that I think you guys will enjoy reading 🙂

  1. What’s your current song that you keep listening to again and again?
    ‘Blank Space’ by Taylor Swift – I am not ashamed to say I am a big T-Swift fan haha.
  2. Would you rather watch a sport or participate in the sport (any)? Participate definitely. I am happy to play any sport netball, volleyball even ultimate Frisbee, all those good ones you are forced to learn in school haha.
  3. Do you own any pets? If so, what? If not, how come?
    Yes I own 2 beautiful dogs, one overly affectionate cat and a bossy bird.
  4. What’s your favorite book?
    Too hard to choose I have so many!
  5. What’s one of your favorite memories involving either a best friend or family member?Every year my family goes to an island near where we live to celebrate Christmas, I have very fond memories of this every year.
  6. What was something difficult for you and how did you overcome it?
    My boyfriend and I have been doing a long distancefor the past two years while he completes his national service in Singapore. In the beginning it was difficult for me to have that person who was always there for me in another country, in time however I learned that I could use all of this spare time I had for myself, catching up with girlfriends and learning how to do things on my own and I have become a lot more independent and happier because of it. Also I get to go shopping in Singapore semi-regularly 😉
  7. What are some of your favorite things to do? I love to read, see my friends, go shopping, swim at the beach.
  8. Have you ever been to Disney?
    No I need to go as soon as possible! But I love in Australia so it is so far away 😦
  9. Sweet snacks or salty snacks? Sweet!
  10. What’s one of your favorite articles of clothing and why? I have a red fit and flare dress from Zara, I think I would go as far to say it is my favorite dress and I would wear it every day if I could, don’t worry I don’t. Everything about though, is perfect to me the cut, the material and the colour.

Crafternoon – DIY Peppermint Lip Balm

lip balm cover

What you will need:

2 TBSP beeswax
2 TBSP coconut oil
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
chunk of lipstick (A lot goes a little way)
1/2 tsp. of shimmer powder (Optional.. but lets be real, essential.)
10 drops of essentail oil (I used peppermint because it gives your lips that minty tingling feeling)

Melt everything except the essential oil in a double boiler (A pot on top of another pot with boiling water underneath) until it is all completely melted.

Make sure not to overheat (Beeswax will ignite if it gets too hot). Stir with something that you can throw away, I used a bamboo skewer.

Remove from heat and add essential oil. Use a syringe or pipette dropper to fill up your lip balm containers. I bought mine off Ebay you can also get them from craft stores.

Leave to sit at room temperature or put into the fridge until lip balm has hardened or opaque.

Time taken to make: 10 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

Style Diary – Record Time Dress

Since I am back at work I thought I might show you some of the outfits that I wear to the office, this first one is the Record Time dress from ModCloth, click here. For this post I decided to do a different sort of post and add a vintage style spin to it.. I had great fun taking these photos so I might do this more often, let me know if you guys like it 🙂

Vintage Tea Party in Singapore

Yesterday I dragged my slightly unsure boyfriend off to a vintage high tea at Dempsey Hill in Singapore, we are currently both in Singapore, me just for a holiday and him completing his national service (2 months left yay!), I had seen this place on my last trip when we were in the area for dinner and knew straight away I was making sure we visited it when I was over again. Click here for their website.

The food tasted as good as the presentation and the tea was so delicious, I wish I could show you how good it smelled! 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATo go with the vintage feel of the high tea I wore one of my favorite dresses that makes me feel like I have stepped right out of the 1950’s.

Style Diary – Needle and Thread Tulle Skirt

Ever since I was a little girl I have been on the hunt for the perfect tulle skirt, those hunts were mostly limited to the fairy shops and as I grew older expanded into clothing stores,  ASOS has put an end to my searching as I have found, in my opinion, the perfect tulle skirt.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI teamed the tulle skirt with a black crop from factorie and some black ballet flats from Target.

Skirt – Needle and thread here
Top – Factorie here
