Last Thursday, one of my longest friends messaged me, asking if I wanted to go with her to see Kanye. I bit back my initial response of “DUH!” and replied with a “yes please!“. I’m not a huge Kanye fan, in fact, I probably only knew half of the songs at the concert, but I love seeing live music and it was a great chance to catch up with my friend. Lord knows I can be horrid at maintaining friendships.
I nearly broke my boots getting them on! See, I actually sprained my ankle a few days prior and having it all bandaged added extra bulk. Due to that, I decided to dress for maximum comfort. This Harlow top was my only purchase at the Curvy Couture Roadshow last year, and I’ve worn it heaps! It’s so comfy. In fact, my Mum keeps threatening to steal it because she loves the way it looks on.
To jazz it up a bit, I added the first pair of Black Milk Leggings I ever bought, along with this Tatty Divine Knock-Off necklace. That necklace is a serious convo starter. I got 4 compliments that night on it!
I also made some effort and put make up on. I hardly ever wear make up these days. I always feel the transformation is so dramatic though. I like the way make up enhances my eyes. Usually if I put make up on its mascara, eyebrow powder/gel & a lipstick.
I tend to look so similar in all my pictures. So I’ve added in a few funny faces and better pictures of my make up.
Look! I’m dressed in something other then leggings and jumpers! That’s because I was doing something other then packing and stressing about moving. On Saturday, my parents & family friends went out to lunch, so I used to excuse to get dressed up.
When I first noticed this skirt on Modcloth, I loved it and promptly added it to my ‘loved’ list. I recently got an email notifying me it was on sale, and well, I caved. It doesn’t look as pink online, but it does say in the description that it’s neon, and honestly, it’s just made me love it more. When the restaurant employee told me I looked very ‘bright’, and my Mum told me she wouldn’t lose me in the crowd, well, I take it as a compliment.
Then I paired it with my crop top and pom pom earrings. I loved pom pom earrings when they came down the runway for Henry Holland. However seeing Hayley in them so often, and lusting after them, I decided to pick up a pink pair for myself. Funny story, before I left for lunch, I was on Skype, when Tonka came up to me, sniffed the pom pom, then grabbed it & tried to run away with it. I now have to be sure to hide them when they are not in my ears, and be careful when they are!
The weather has been rainy and dreary here at the moment, quite different to last Spring. I wasn’t quite sure I’d get proper outfit pictures taken (that’s why there are a few inside shots) but the rain cleared up for a short while. I hope my glaringly white skin doesn’t blind you! I’m considering trying a fake tan this Summer. I’ve always loved being pale, but I think I wouldn’t mind trying something different!
When Firmoo contacted me recently and asked me if I’d like to review a pair of their prescription glasses, I said yes. I already own a few different pairs of glasses, but I’d decided recently I wanted a pair of clear frames. Something that was comfortable, somewhat plain and wouldn’t distract too much away from my outfit.
I found the frames I liked and made the order. I have all my prescription details, so it’s pretty easy to input all the data. I can’t say exact how fast they shipped, because they arrived when I was in Melbourne, but they came packed up all secure in a box, with a cleaning cloth & a hard case.
You may have noticed me wearing them in some of my Instagram pictures lately, as I’ve wanted to make sure I really tested them before I mentioned them on my blog. I love them & even though they are clear (well, they have a pattern on the side), I’ve actually had a few compliments about them. My only suggestion would be to shell out the extra money and get some of the selected add ons, like Anti-Reflective or the Fingerprint Resistant Coating.
They seem to have a steady stream of glasses going on and off the site. The pair I ordered (these) are now no longer available, but I admit to having my eyes on these and these. I’d also be interested to try their glasses with tinting, and I actually don’t own a pair of prescription sunglasses, and yes, that is annoying! The Firmoo site also has the nifty feature where you can upload your picture and ‘try them on’.
They also have a current promotion that lets you get a pair of selected frames for free. All you have to pay for is the lenses and shipping. You can find more info about that here.
DISCLAIMER: I was gifted the frames, lenses and shipping for free. I decided to share the review because I was impressed with the product and service. All thoughts and words are my own.
