I live a hop, skip & jump away from Chadstone so when I heard that the new section was opening with a new Mecca Maxima store I decided I was going to head in and check it out. The first 150 people in line got to meet Chloe Morello and receive her new palette from Ciate London.
I’m kinda lucky the cats had me up half the night and I was up super early. Originally I was going to head over to Chadstone around 7:30, but after checking the facebook feed and seeing so many people had lined up, I figured I’d head over early. I arrived around 6:20am and was #112 in line. Walking in I met a lovely lady named Jasmine who ended up being my line buddy and chatting helped kill the time!
It actually flew by pretty quick, despite waiting nearly 3 hours! Mecca supplied doughnuts, coffee (or in my case, hot chocolate), as well as water & goodie bags. Oh, and pretty boy eye candy! Mecca staff also came around offering up setting spray, lipstick and festival dots, which you can see I said YES to!
Once Chloe was in store the line started moving pretty fast. The DJ was killing it and they had an MC who was trying to hype up the crowd. Chloe was gorgeous in person and so sweet. I really didn’t know what to say, I am actually quite a shy person. It was all captured in photos and I just have to laugh at THIS photo. It looks like she’s going for a boob grab, when in fact she was admiring my necklace.
Whilst in store, a lady came up to me saying she noticed me in line and LOVED my outfit, that my skirt matched the Mecca Pink and that my necklace was amazing. I knew she was *somebody* but not who, and it wasn’t until a few hours later I realised who she was. THE FOUNDER OF MECCA! *DEAD*
Mecca Maxima also had a gifting tree to celebrate the store opening. If you spent over $65 in store you could then go and pick an envelope off the tree and have the chance of winning big. I picked up the Too Faced x Nikki Tutorials palette and headed to the gifting tree and scored a Smashbox makeup bag and primer!
All in all, I had a wonderful day!!

ASOS do some amazing pyjamas and I can’t help feeling that they need to be shared with the world, but it’s not really socially acceptable to go out in your pyjamas. Sure, there is the new pj looking pantsuits, but otherwise, it’s a no go. So I like to try and incorporate them into my everyday style, to wear them in a way people may not at first realise “Oh! She’s wearing pyjamas!”. You can see my first attempt HERE.
When this Ursula night tee came online I was all “Praise the fashion Gods”, because as a fat girl, I love Ursula, if just for the fact she’s one of the only fat Disney characters around.
This sleep tee is really oversized, which means with the vest it does bunch up around the underarms, but I’m not fussy. If the print wasn’t where it is, I would have added a belt too. If I was going out of a night in this, I’d pair it with some heels, but I thought my comfy sneakers, with sea coloured sequins, would go with the theme!
I wish I had a better place to take outfit photos, but this wall seems to be the best place at the moment. It faces out onto a major road though and I get a little self-conscious taking photos of myself! I think that’s one thing I should work on, my photos on the blog. It’s just me, my tripod and remote, but I think I can do a little better. Do you have anything you’d like to see change with my pictures?
I went with some purple lipstick! This is one of Australis Velourlips in Tok-i-o. You can see my make up a little better in my instagram picture here.
