time for change.

With everything going on, I figured it was time for some change.
We have waved farewell to this little blogspot that has been an amazing home to us for the last 3 years, and say a hey-hello to our new home over on Wordpress :)

You can find the blog now on:

We're still adjusting it to our liking so bear with us!
But for all posts, be sure to bookmark the address above!

See you on the other side!

house of skye | fringe affair

For those who don't know, I'm fortunate enough to work in fashion in my day job.
Recently we picked up a beautiful label called House of Skye and when I spotted the Fringe Affair collection (delivering July) I just had to share it with you all!

Fringe Affair is inspired by the culture and the style of past and present Native America. Add a dash of bohemia and it's easy to see why I fell in love with this label, and especially this collection.

My favourite pieces would have to be the first jade green maxi dress and the jade green boyfriend shirt dress. I'm tempted to get both styles in both the green and the black...
I knew my day job was going to be dangerous on my wallet!

new outlook.

Recently it came to my attention that it was time to invest in a new pair of specs.
Without hesitation I knew exactly where I was going to get a pair that was both fashionable and affordable.

About a year ago I trialled out a few pairs of Sneaking Duck (see post here). After a week of playing with the glasses I was leaning towards the "Tortuga" but I just could not decide exactly on which pair I wanted. A year on, I have FINALLY made my decision and settled on my initial love for the "Tortuga" - and lucky for me they also happened to be 50% off!

Having decided on the style I wanted, I rushed off to my local optometrist to find my prescription (turned out I hadn't had my eyes checked in 5 years.. oops) and plugged in the numbers I was given into the Sneaking Duck website as I proceeded to check out with my new specs in tow.

3 days later my beautiful new specs arrived but alas being the nong that I am, it seemed I had entered my prescription wrong. The fantastic team at Sneaking Duck immediately rushed a courier over to pick up my glasses and two days later they were back in my arms with the correct prescription.

I'm going to admit, I have always hated wearing my glasses. Most people don't even know I have to wear glasses but ever since my Sneaking Duck specs have arrived, I haven't taken them off.

These glasses couldn't have come at a better time in my life now that I've adopted a new way to approach my life.

A big thank you to Natalie at Sneaking Duck for helping me out, especially with my blonde moment with my script.

take a walk with me.

With a comfortable pair of shoes, you can take on the world.
I have always been a sucker for comfort over style. I would happily choose a pair of flats over heels (despite my overflowing collection of heels). Especially as I walk so much, a comfortable pair of flats is something I would happily invest in.
Luckily Bared Footwear merges comfort with style!

So, why do I love Bared?
Firstly, they have an amazing selection of different shoes whether it be flats or boots for the winter season.
Secondly, wearing them is like walking on clouds! They give you so much support and are unbelievably comfortable to wear, they've quickly become my go-to flats.

re-inspired.

The last half a year has been a crazy roller-coaster ride for me personally, and little by little I lost inspiration and began seeing what I loved to do as a chore - like blogging. But regardless, I went through the motions and powered on pumping out blog posts until one day I just couldn't do it any more.
I have never been one to avoid confrontation - whether it be with other people or with myself - but along the way, I lost the energy to deal with the issues that were dragging me down.

Over the last month, I decided to take a step back and look back over what my blog used to be like, and thought back to why I started it and realised I had strayed from what I originally wanted.
But it was more than just the blog that had strayed, my life had begun to travel down a path I would never have imagined I would take, in both a good and a bad way - this all happened over a course of several years, the last 6 months served as a trigger.

When I left high school, I did not imagine that 5 years down the track that this is where I would be.
Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for every moment, every person and every memory that has brought me here but along the way I lost myself a little bit.

After months of pushing through, despite my body and mind telling me to pause and take a breath, last week I finally took the long awaited breath that I needed.
I began searching for inspiration to reignite the passion within me.
I looked back through the blog I started when I was 15 (more an online diary than a blog - it was the early 2000's after all!) and realised I had lost my love for writing, despite words being paramount to me (a bit of trivia for you all: all my tattoos - except one - have words).
I sat in bed and read through all the writing I had done and browsed through all the photos I had taken.
It turned out my past-self was all the inspiration I needed.
