AUSSIE CURVES : RACES

Standard

I can’t believe that it’s RACES post time again…. This is one of my favourite times of year. For the last 4 years I’ve attended a country Ladies Day Races with a group of fabulous women. The chatter and organisation leading up to the day is part of what makes it so special…frocks and fascinators are what it’s all about…

This year I fell in love with a bright floral dress from ESTELLE and have in fact worn it 2 weekends in a row…once to Ladies Day and once to a friend’s Race Night party. I wore my hair differently on each occasion and changed my accessories.

I felt amazing on both occasions and got heaps of compliments!

AUSSIE CURVES: DENIM

Standard

For this weeks Aussie Curves Challenge: DENIM, I have used my favourite black jeans from City Chic. They are the most comfortable and best fitting jeans I own. I’ve worn them for a night out, dressed up and casually with a t-shirt- so versatile. A well fitting pair of jeans are, in my opinion, an essential part of any wardrobe.

I teamed my black jeans up with a grey top from Debenhams (UK) and a flowing colourful kimono from Supre- which I picked up for $10 in the sale…BARGAIN! As you probably know, I lurvveeee my accessories and have worn a fab silver necklace which I recently found in a pharmacy!

SHOPPING SPREE : HOLIDAY PURCHASES

Standard

HELLO!

It’s been some time since I posted…sorry, but I’ve been away! That’s right, 4 years after moving to sunny Oz, the family and I took a fabulous 4 week trip home to the UK. Now it goes without saying that family and friends are at the top of my ‘What I miss about the UK’ list, but I DO miss the shopping too – and boy did I shop!!! Let’s just say we brought back double the amount of cases we left with.

Clothes…shoes…make-up…handbags(more than 1 or 2!)…jewellery…

I think it’s only fair I share a few of my purchases…

I bought a new mascara called ‘They’re Real’, from Benefit and it is AMAZING. It makes you look like you are wearing ‘falsies’. It’s not waterproof which is what I generally go for as I tend to struggle with my mascara smudging under my eyes when it’s hot. I have worn it on a couple of nights out and it’s stayed put( so far so good).
