A hand cream newbie. Grown Alchemist Vanilla & Orange Peel Hand Cream which smells similar to Aesop Rind Concentrate Body Balm but has noticeably less fragrance lasting-power.

A bit of a perfume edit. I usually use my Chanel No.5 Eau Premiere EDP but I happened to see a bottle of Ck one EDT at the shops today which I obviously purchased for nostalgic reasons. I also think it's a good alternative to wear in the upcoming Spring/Summer months. Spring also has me thinking of the Clinique Happy fragrance ads...remember those?

OMG. Ever since coming back to Australia I feel like I've lost complete interest in fashion and clothes. I'm having a hard time finding chic, pretty clothing in the town where I live so I find myself shopping online (I did my first ASOS order last week) and getting back into make-up & skincare. Simultaneously fell through the black hole of YouTube fashion blogger and beauty blogger channels. Seriously, this is all I'm watching nowadays- Patricia Bright's haul videos and ViviannaDoesMakeUp!

This outfit reminds me of an outfit Cameron Diaz wore two years ago. Still not over this look!

Fantasizing about bouclé wool coats at the moment. They are the perfect cold weather item to be wrapped-up in and the perfect balance of coziness, rusticity, functionality and elegance.

A bit of Autumn/Winter inspiration for those of us living Down Under. I love the LV coat in the first image with the stripes and contrasting lapels...mmmm...just beaut.

The sort of look I'm into at the moment which is simple basics with an expensive coat or accessory. I call it ostentatious with an air of nonchalance.

the black tuxedo

This outfit is something I've seen countless times in editorials but relatively hard to see out in the real world. It's definitely a hard look to pull off....probably the nakedness, huh.
