Take me to a far away land…

Happy Easter Sunday.

We are off to Hamilton Island in 2 hours ok so it is not that far away but it is perfection.

Words cannot begin to describe my excitement.

Other than my very pale skin which I blame on the fact I am 1/4 British I am a beach bum at heart.

My favourite places in the worlds are places where there is great beaches (and good shopping always helps too)

The packing is going brilliantly…… Sarcasm intended

I once went to the beach for the weekend when I was 12 and when we arrived said “Mum did you pack the shorts for me” To which she replied “I didn’t pack anything for you”

So we had to go shopping and I received a new beach wardrobe… I wish I could say I was sneaky and just planned for all that to happen but that would be a lie.

Little Treasures

photo copy 21

I am having one of those days where annoying little things just keep going wrong.

They are massive ‘first world problems’ and I really just need to get over myself! Actually I don’t even think I can call them problems…

Nonetheless it is days like this that make you appreciate the happier ones you have and make you search for all the little treasures in your life, you so often take for granted;

like  travel memories, 1 pound Primark hats, scumptious food, beautiful gifts, photo booth happy snaps…

Happy Saturday!

 

Cheers to the Weekend

Happy Long weekend.

May it be filled with happiness, family, friends and sickness induced by over easter-egging (verb: the act of over eating too many deliciously chocolatey easter eggs in too short of a time period).

Fruit + Flowers. Obviously would prefer chocolate…

I wore my new Ksubi tee, well its old season but on sale. I am really having a moment with Ksubi at the moment, it just so easy to wear.

We just ate a mammoth Good Friday feast, a siesta is so about to happen.

I had a day off uni today and being the dedicated first year uni student that I am I went to Noosa.

When the sun is shining why would you be anywhere but the beach?

Bistro C for lunch, always goes down a treat. I had the chicken salad. There is few inventions in the world greater than that of a ridiculously, scrumptious salad.

Left me thinking about Cinque Terre, in Italy. I spent a week there last year, and it was one of the best weeks of my life. Seriously people put it on the to do list.

Every time I chatted to my Mum on the phone she became annoyed as I was eating gelato and not responding to her. In every picture I am eating gelato… Talk about ice-cream addiction!

Do you spy the Easter moon, I am ridiculously obsessed it is far too chic.

Trend to Try

I have decided I am going to dedicate Thursday to ‘trend to try’, the alliteration works what can I say!

With the Fall 2013 RTW collections only recently finishing there is an abundance of new trends out there just waiting to be tried and tested, but I think the simplest is this little one from Chanel. Now I am not going to lie you do have to be a quite brave to pull it off, but when has a little bravery ever hurt anyone!

Do you see how they wear the necklace over the top over their hair? Hello quirky yet fabulous!

Put this necklace over your luscious, straight locks and pair with a pair of black jeans, and oversized light grey shirt and some uber cool leather boots and BAADDAABING you have the Karl look (I say Karl because isn’t this collection just so very Karl even more so than Coco? Whatever it is I am obsessed)

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.31.45 AMNecklace by Lovisa $24.99 and in the flesh it is massive, chunky and fabulous and would sit perfectly for this trend.

 

Just when you think it can’t get any cooler…

Céline sends out this collection.

It has been nearly a month since they showed at Fall 2013 RTW Paris Fashion Week, and I can’t stop loving it, I try getting over it but I just cannot.

The things I would do to get a Céline coat! It was hard to pick but these are my favourite four looks.

Imagine wearing the first look could you be any classier or sexier, or the grey fur skirt is it perfection or is it perfection?

Do you spy the latest must have?

On the streets of Paris all photos taken by Tommy Ton. Now because this is the first of these games that we are doing, I am going to make it easy.

On another note you know you are fashion obsessed when you begin telling people you are off to buy a ‘Tommy Ton Navigator” the correct name is apparently ‘Tom Tom” I wish I could buy Tommy Ton though, that would be awesome.

Is AdR killin’ it, or is she killin’ it.

Did you spot it, if you didn’t I am worried for your well being. It is the reflector sunnies. What colour would you do? My sister and I do blue and red. They are new season ray-bans so go and get them if you so desire.

Try this Tuesday

Lacking inspiration this Tuesday? I most certainly am, that and the motivation to change out of my pajamas which are über ugly ones, to make matters worse. Nevertheless how chic is this look? I am a little in love with the simple hair and cool earring thing the Clarins heiresses have got going on, we shall all try.
