Sydney you are to big for my brain to comprehend...

 As I was flying over at Syndey I was sure I was flying over some other part of the world. 
I had know idea such a large city existed in Australia  a country I had always viewed as 'not quite finished yet. 
Sydney is a ginormous mass of houses and buildings organised by the surrounding sea and rivers. 
My family and I arrived just before 5 so we haven't done much but so far I love it. 

New Years
The city isn't the only thing on my mind it's new years eve tomorrow and I still have no idea what I am doing . 
However I am quite certain I will be wearing this amazing dress I bought in Singapore. 
I love the mesh cut outs and think it works perfectly with all black accessories. 












Here are a few snaps from sydney so far , one thing all this travelling has made me realise is that I love big cities.

 General Meandering by the Darling Harbour. 

Thats it and I will see you all next year . 
Keep safe and have fun !

Running Up that Hill

For many years now the holiday season hasn't felt like much of a holiday. However this year I can honestly say I have felt more relaxed than ever . 
This is partly due to having my christmas shopping completed early and being with my family in Karratha ( a very small country town in the North West of Australia). 

Here is an outfit post taken up on a hill which is practically in my back garden which features a dress my sister gave me for Christmas . 
For some reason the photo's remind me of a Kate Bush song I am quite fond of .

I am actually wearing this dress backwards because I love the button detailing so much. 








Head charm: Indian markets Singapore
Dress: Wish
Crystal Necklace: Markets
Clutch: New Look
Shoes: Singapore Markets

There is not much to do in this town so I have been doing a lot of reading, swimming and catching some rays which believe me there is plenty of. 

Another positive is that I have decent sized room and am not living out of a suit case which I happen to do quite frequently ! 

Here are some snaps I have taken of my bedroom. 







Hope your holidays have been as relaxing to!
I also a big congratulations to Pauline who won my givaway !
She also has a really cute blog worth checking out !

My next blog entry might be in Sydney where I am heading on Thursday!
If you have any idea's as to what I should do there I would love to know ?

Apples and Cinnamon

First of all 
Merry Christmas! 

Here's an outfit post which reminds me of my favourite Christmas decorations made from dried apples and Cinnamon. 



I still cannot get away from feathers, it happens now without thinking . 




I really love the floral print on these dungaree's it's so vibrant and graphic.





 Hat , blouse, dungaree's and socks: topshop
Necklaces from the markets
Clogs  :Trendyzone Singapore
Bag :Forever New


My Aunty has decorations similar to these on her tree in the UK . 



They look and smell amazing ! 

I secretly love Christmas despite all the craziness it entails. 

This year is a guaranteed super hot Christmas in Karratha which does make it feel considerately less "christmassy" than in the UK . 

My favourite part it seeing my younger brothers face which instantly creates that festive feeling for me.

I hope the season treats you well ! 

Also enter my giveaway in the post below for a possible christmas bonus .

Camouflage

I wish I could say that I was inspired by my surroundings when putting this outfit together because you can hardly tell the difference between myself and my surroundings. 


I do love this skirt though and have developed extremely fond of early tones, particularly military green. 



I plan on making more feather head dresses and accessories for the summer, I'm not sure what it is but I can't seem to leave the house without at least one. 

I really enjoy the lf lookbook via fashionlane. 
I think it's due to the quirky spirit and fun atmosphere of the shoot. 



I think I am not the only one who fells stressed out this time of year so it's nice to escape into the fantasy of shoot's like these every now and again ! 




After nearly a month of travelling I am finally home . 

I can't tell you how nice it is not to be living out of a suit case however it won't be long till I am off again. 

After christmas I will be heading off on a family trip to Sydney for 5 day's followed by a 6 day stint in Melbourne. 

 This means I will be in Sydney for new years which will be exiting.
 I just have to figure out what I am doing. 

Also keep your eyes peeled as I am going to announce a very nice giveaway very soon which is definitely worth your while !
