Bohemian French Braid Twisted Bun

I recorded this hair tutorial about a year ago and have finally managed to upload it onto my blog. Its a messy braided bun look where you start with one bohemian braid on one side of your head and keep adding to it as you go around and collecting all your hair. Then once all the hair is braided up, loosen the braid up and then pin up the braid into a bun.    

Rubi Shoes

Shoes are my own guilty pleasure. I own over a hundred pairs of shoes and am emotionally attached to every one of them. When Rubi Shoes approached me to feature their next and upcoming line of “Sock Boots” on my blog, I was quite excited. Having worn many of the Rubi Shoe brands in my teenage years, I knew how fun and stylish these pieces would be. Having the perfect pair of shoes, for me, is the most important part of an outfit. It’s the essential finishing touch that pulls the whole look together. Sometimes, as long as your shoes are on point, you…

Daily Skin Care Routine.

Hey guys! A proper daily beauty routine is quite essential to getting your skin ready for a busy day. So in this blog post I will be talking about some of the products that I include in my daily skin care routine.

A Shopper’s guide to three days in Sydney

Whenever you are given a chance a to travel, never say no! So when I got given the chance to attend a wedding in Sydney, I couldn’t say no at all. But straight after coming from my VERY extended holiday in Fiji, the Sydney trip was cut down to 5 days. In 5 days, with the wedding taking one day and travelling taking about a day (give or take),I really just had 3 days to “travel”. I strategically decided that I would spend my 3 days SHOPPING and EATING. Here is a run down of where to shop and where…

Travel Diaries (New Plymouth)

Graduating in 2014 and having a gap year before I scored a job, left me with a lot of time on my hands. So I decided to fill this time with dance, music and of course as much travel as I could. Making an escape down to New Plymouth was one of my favorites, it meant I could get away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland. New Plymouth, to me, is like Auckland, but on a smaller scale. It isn’t a small town like what many people perceive it to be (and sadly that included me). It is a developing…
