AUSSIE CURVES: LEATHER

Standard

I missed Aussie Curves: Date Night and didn’t want to make it 2 in a row that I missed, so here’s my Aussie Curves: LEATHER contribution – or to be more accurate, my PLEATHER contribution. Before I go any further I do need to own up and let you know you may have seen these pics before, but I do have an excuse…2 actually. Firstly, this week is totally taken up by being a ‘dance mom’, as it’s Eisteddfod time…and secondly, I don’t really have much leather/ pleather in my wardrobe!

During the recent City Chic sale I did however bag myself a fabulous pleather jacket – down from $150 to $75. BONUS!!! I love it and have worn it casually, on a night out and even to work. It’s been so versatile. One of the best bits of the jacket is the ‘frill’ round the bottom which makes it just a little bit different and works well with by derriere.

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).
