Lancome Buys + Gift With Purchase

How good are free gifts... even if they're just little samples. I finally decided to upgrade my sample size Lancome Hypnose Star mascara to a big one, bought a new lipstick while I was at it (Corail In Love) and received a bag full of Lancome products to try (offer only at Myer). Creams, cleanser, fragrance, another lipstick, a cosmetic case and yet another sample of Hypnose Star (I'm set).

Why do I love this mascara THAT much? It does it all... lengthens, separates, adds volume and darkens for the perfect eyelashes. I highly recommend it.

Lace Kimono + Fedora Hat

Kimono, Tank, Jeans + Hat from Missguided | Sandals from Lipstik | Bag (Cass Drawstring Pouch) from Colette

Embracing lace with a Missguided outfit this Sunday... I want to live in kimonos all spring and summer. They just up my level of comfort to 100. These cutoff jeans are high waisted so perfect for the end of winter, and if you want a good bucket bag I suggest grabbing one of these from Colette. I have black and nude and have been using them both.

What's New At Sportsgirl | September

Let's all just have a moment to take in the latest pieces dropping into Sportsgirl... can I buy everything? Lots of cream and white with blue moroccan prints. I had a bit of a trying on session the other day because I couldn't keep walking past and just staring at it all. I'm really liking the cropped tank and pants in that amazing print.

ASOS Wishlist | September

I think I missed doing an August one of these... either because I couldn't find anything worth posting or the month got away from me. SO much going on at the moment.

As it gets warmer I'm falling for kimonos, lacy tops and chokers (the choker I wanted to include was sold out). I'm dying for a new pair of pjs, these Calvin Klein ones look so comfy. And who can say no to a recipe book dedicated to Nutella...

 I really want to try this illuminator by The Balm, I've seen the beautiful highlighted shine it gave someone in a tutorial. And all palettes by Too Faced have such pretty colours.

Lately ♥

A few things I've been up to lately...

Coffee shop run, the best weekend cappuccino, nude bucket bag from Colette with a beautiful pair of Burberry shades, incredible display at Sunglass Hut's flagship store in George Street (sunglass heaven), relaxing with mags and OPI, my desk, typical daily outfit, my new rose gold sandals from Misano, more at Sunglass Hut, flowers on my birthday, and lusting after these Miu Miu shades... so perfect, and wait til you see the sides.

ChloƩ Eau de Parfum

If you haven't tried Chloe yet.... you must! Stepping outside my fragrance comfort zone, I dove into this gorgeous pink box to find the sweetest silver bottle with a dusty pink bow. The packaging alone will have you hooked.

The addictive combination in Chloe has such a feminine, fresh effect with top notes of Pink Peony, Freesia, Lychee, midnotes of Magnolia Flower, Lily of the Valley, Rose, and a base of Cedarwood, Amber, Honey.

It's one of those fragrances that I wish I could have constantly floating through my apartment. So beautiful.
