AIJA

It was one fine day when I was exploring Mosman on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour when I stumbled across a rather nice boutique selling good quality and on trend leather goods and silver jewellery. I couldn’t help myself, so I bought these cute and quirky triangle stud earrings.  It is the perfect go-to when you are buying a gift for someone or just a wee treat for yourself. Everything is reasonably priced and its a new and exciting product,  its different to everything else out there. It stands out, I guarantee as soon as you walk in the store and smell the fresh flowers or try on the petite stackable rings you will be hooked. Keep on reading to find out more about these Estonian beauties and how AIJA was created. What sparked the idea for AIJA, where did it all start? It wasn’t exactly a sudden light bulb moment.. more like an evolutionary process. We had some leather at home and were experimenting with different things.. skirts, dresses, bags etc… the bags …

FUSED by SKYY

Introducing FUSED by SKYY. If you are anything like me, than you would kill for a #notsosweet natural and fresh beverage. Now, I am not the biggest drinker but when I do, I like a soft, easy to drink beverage and that’s why I was delighted to be apart of the SKYY campaign. It’s just so easy and accessible, a pre made fusion of three different flavours, you have Cucumber and Mint, Soda and Squeezed Lime and Homestyle Lemonade with a Splash of Bitters. Why buy  3-4 different ingredients and mixers when you can easily grab a SKYY out of the fridge, pour into a glass with crushed ice and you are good to go, refreshing and a tasty drink at your finger tips!

Escape

Every one has that one place that makes them feel whole, where you can let go of every thing and escape. For me its the sea side. The gentle sound of the waves calms me. I find it really inspiring, it’s like a switch to restart, rethink what your doing and where your heading in life.

Juggling work, life & your blog.

The million dollar question. How do you juggle work, your personal and social life as well as a kick ass blog?? The answer……..It’s not easy, find out how I do it. When I decided to start my blog about 18 months ago, I never knew how much work, mentally and physically was involved. The fact is that most people don’t know. I am going to talk to you about my experiences and mistakes so that I can help you take the easier road. Blogging was a serious change for me, going from a stable week to week comfortable pay check to earning $200 a week working casually, moving to Sydney from the Central Coast and signing myself up to Orana Fashion Business College for the next 12 months. Digging into my savings I managed to juggle college fees and rent as well as trying to maintain a healthy life style. For a strong 6 months I was balancing two internships (which took up two days of my week), two casual jobs (retail and hospitality), my blog and study …

Pink Panther

It was a beautiful sunny day on the Central Coast last weekend. It’s quite rare that I get to enjoy two consecutive days off and its even better when I get to spend it with my better half! We like to explore areas we haven’t yet seen. We are attracted to cafes like fly’s on a cake. There’s just something about the attraction of coffee that gets us every time, I don’t know if its the buzz of the people, the clinking of the coffee machine, the aroma you can smell as you walk through the doors, the incredible decor or the art of the coffee itself. We just love it and drink a lot of it. Now that you know I love coffee, here’s a pink wall featuring my new sneakers from Lacoste!

Hello Future

Isn’t it just the best feeling completing something you set out to do a year earlier. A whole weight lifted off your shoulders and that feeling of relief and achievement. Its finally here, time to tick that box off! So the past 12 months I have been studying Certificate IV in Business, Major in Fashion at Orana Fashion Business College, located in Ultimo, Sydney. This course was the best decision I made last year and has helped me start my career in fashion like I always wanted. A couple of my highlights so far have been the people I met through interning and paid jobs through college. I have worked on numerous photoshoots as assistant stylist now and the list of celebrities I have worked with are excitingly growing! They include the amazing Samantha Jade who won X-Factor, Montana Cox who was on ANTM, Jesinta Campbell who was Miss Universe 2010, Jessica Mauboy who was on Australian Idol, Jessica Gomes who is the David Jones ambassador, James Tobin who is an Australian TV presenter and …
