No passengers on my plane




Dress - Mister Zimi
Heels - Sportsgirl
Sunglasses - Roc Eyewear
Hat - Topshop






Hola
I'm back from beautiful Bali. I had a really nice relaxing trip, I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things (not gonna lie I've been a bit lazy over the past week!!). Although it doesn't look like it I even managed to get a slight tan while there ... for me anyway! 

I took lots and lots of photos while in Bali which I am sorting through and will organise them into a photo diary on here within the next few days.

Today I am wearing a dress I picked up in Seminyak from the Mister Zimi store. I'm not sure what attracted me to this dress as it is well and truly something I would never pick up in Melbourne! Definitely out of my comfort zone from what I usually wear but I really love it. I love the colours but I also love how the colourful panels are broken with black stripes. The dress is a thickish material so it's perfect for a nice spring day in Melbourne! I have paired it with plain black accessories.

Have a great week and enjoy the weather wherever you are!

The pool slider - My top 6

Hola

I am currently in Bali! I have been here since last Wednesday, I have been relaxing and just soaking up the sun after being cooped up inside for the majority of winter! I'll fill you in a bit more and do a proper post on my trip when I get back.

Today I am sharing with you my latest obsession..."the pool sliders"!

While they aren't the best looking shoes (I have dubbed them "the ugly shoe") they are everywhere this season and look like they will be a staple throughout summer! But you either love them or you hate them. I have only recently joined the love side myself!!  When I was looking for sandals to take away with me, there was nothing that really drew my eye except for these slider shoes. After looking around I decided to go for the Birkenstocks just because I knew I would be doing a lot of walking and they support your foot a bit more than some of the others. I chose a black pair and I'm so glad I did, I have been walking everywhere in them and they go with just about every type of outfit!

Here a few of my favourite sliders:
Pool Sliders
| 1. Windsor Smith - Yang $99.95 |  2. Betts - Slider $69.99 |  3. Birkenstock Arizona $120 |
| 4. Kate Spade - Attitude Buddle Slide $239 | 5. Sportsgirl - Cross over slide $48.97 | 6. ASOS - Feodore Slides $34.22 |
(Sorry, the ASOS ones are sold out during the making of this post!)

Just about every store that sells shoes are selling their own take on the trend so if none of these are taking your fancy I'm sure you will easily find ones you like! 

Do you love or loathe sliders? 
What is your go to summer shoe?

My current playlist

sp

Hola

I haven't shared a playlist for ages on my blog and well I thought it would nice to share my current playlist with you guys via Spotify. I found it to be the easiest way to show you what I'm listening to without a billion links to click through!

So here is what I have been absolutely loving recently! My playlists change constantly but these songs are keeping me super motivated and inspired at the moment. I listen to these when I'm working out, cleaning, driving and just dancing around the room! Hope you enjoy these too!




Also this song isn't on Spotify and its actually one of my current favourites! Never thought I would be super keen on a Taylor Swift song but this one is perfect!




Let me know what songs you are loving and which ones are on your current playlist!

What's in my backpack?

Hola

After lusting over several designer backpacks for months I finally decided that I couldn’t justify spending so much money at the moment. So I ended up buying a more practical plain black backpack from Sportsgirl. I’m so glad I did, I love it, it goes with everything, fits a lot inside and also saves my back and shoulders from carrying around a heavy shoulder bag!

The best thing is that you have your arms free to do other things like shopping! I find that whilst backpacks suit the sports luxe look best you can also wear them with almost anything, they look good with jeans and a shirt or jumper and also look good with a casual dress and tights.

I thought that as well as showing off my backpack in a blogpost that you might be interested in seeing what I carry around in it daily.

Beauty - Lipstick Haul

Hola

Recently I found myself in Priceline looking for some new skincare products. As usual I got sidetracked trying out lipsticks. So I bought 4 lipsticks after having swatched almost every lipstick/lip gloss in the store....and I didn't even end up buying any skincare products!

The colours of the lipsticks look a little darker in these photos than they are in real life but it was a very dull day outside!

I chose L'oreal lipsticks from the Colour Riche range and also picked up one from Rimmel. All of the ones shown here are translucent type of lipsticks, they are all quite pigmented but giving a sheer look. I absolutely love the shades on me, especially now my hair is a lighter colour. Usually I am not really drawn to translucent lipsticks but these shades give your lips a really nice subtle colour without it being too intense. 

The L'oreal lipsticks are definitely more scented than other lipsticks, they have a creamy, rich texture which leaves your lips feeling quite moisturised. They contain Omega 3 oil and Vitamin E to enrich and protect your lips. The colours I bought are 257 Sunset Blush, a nude pink colour; 235 Nude, a very subtle beige and 233 Taffeta a sheer dusky pink.

The Rimmel lipstick is also very creamy but doesn't seem quite as moisturising as the others. The colour I bought is 012 Guest List which is a shimmery pink. It is still quite a sheer lipstick although it is very pigmented and I think the colour is quite lovely, without being too heavy.

They are all excellent lipsticks to wear everyday, you can wear them for a subtle day time look or you can wear them at night when you don't feel like wearing a full on intense colour on your lips. They are perhaps not quite as long wearing as some lipsticks, with all of them you need to reapply after about three hours, but I always need to anyway because usually I either eat or drink during that time! Also because they are sheer lipsticks not so much colour comes off to stain your glass or cup, so that's always a plus ... right?
