Missguided Peace + Love collection

Hello my loves,

Today saw the drop of the new part to Misguided Peace + Love collection and I wanted to share with you guys my favourite pieces from this entire collection because there are some real gems from both the first and second drop, I saw a lot that I wanted!
 The prices of this range are a little more expensive than the standard Missguided stock (premium is the most expensive - but the quality is worth every penny), it's described as 'high end' in the link description and it does look very 'high end' to me!

These are my favourite pieces that are online now:

My favourite things about this collection is the use of silky, satin and slinky material and also the selection of colours - I feel the colours look so exotic and luxurious!

What are you favourite pieces from the collection?

My favourite Australian online Boutiques

Hello my loves,

So, I contemplated doing this post and held off, purely for selfish reasons if I'm being honest - because I know the minute I share these sites with you all, you're going to love them as much as I do - and my secret shopping sites will no longer be secret!

But, you know I share everything with you guys because that's what I'm here for.
That being said, this post is going to be about some of my favourite Australian online stores.

Whenever I go out or have an event I like to wear something that not everyone has. that's why I usually turn to online shops. In the past few years however, online shopping has blown up and now everyone and their mother shops online. ASOS & Boohoo used to be my babies 9/10 years ago, (I used ASOS when it was A.S.O.S; As Seen On Screen - and they used to specialize in celebrity clothes and one of my 3rd year school disco dresses was from Boohoo so..I'm really showing my age! I used to beg my dad for his card to shop online!) I could nearly guarantee that nobody would have the same outfit as me, but now people shop one these sites as much as they do regular shopping if not more. So now when I go out, I see a lot of people wearing what I am, or else a very similar style. I don't mind this most times, but you know them times when you want to look super fabulous & special; I like to have something just a little bit different so I turn to my favourite Australian online stores.

1. Showpo

This site is a firm long time favourite! The thing I have noticed about their maxi dresses is that they are not super long, not sure if this means that this site leans towards petite/average height people as opposed to tall - but I love it as I've never had to turn up a dress, so this suits me perfect. They have the most AH-MAZING work wear range called Executive Ponies, and my god, the clothes themselves are enough to make me switch career so I can wear office clothes every single day! 

If you want an amazing going out dress or playsuit, this is the site for you. Not only is the price point fantastic, (I have seen some items from these sites being sold on american & European sites for nearly double the price in some cases) the quality is just on point. Their items are extremely unique - there is a SLIM chance of seeing anyone rocking your 'fit on a night out! You could pick me any item on this site and I would wear it and adore it.

This site is a boho girl's dream come true. They have the most stunning co-ord sets featuring beautiful maxi skirts with slits and lacy tops - to me this site screams festival/hippy and boho chic, beachy waves, summer. This site makes me feel some kind of way! I was attending a festival, I would definitely be rocking outfits from here. When I think of Australia, I imagine all the girls walking around on beaches dressed in these clothes! 

So I think if you've ever heard of any Australian online shops Sabo Skirt will of been one of them. I found out about them off Carli Bybel (she is my favourite you-tuber of all time). Again, a boho lovers dream. Every item looks so enchanting and I just want every single thing! They have lots of flow-y, chiffon-y, silky items. Another great site if your are going to a festival or on holidays. They even have some gorgeous going out/evening dresses that would just be amazing for night time holiday outfits.

Ever wanted to look like those forever perfect Instagram girls who seem to always have their lives (and outfits) together?? This site has everything you need - they have the going out clothes yes, but they have an amazing collection of daytime outfits. They have all the amazing items you see on Pintrest and wonder where they came from! They also have a very good range of Quay Australia Glasses. These are the most GORGEOUS sunglasses you will ever lay eyes on I promise. You will want every pair!
Team them with a bodysuit and pair of their destroyed Boyfriend jeans and you will be the most chic person in town. White Fox Boutique also stock the brand 'Nookie' Which is loved by Emily Ratajkowski & Shanina Shaik.

Again, where do I begin - I want everything every time on go to Lioness fashion - I want the entire site! For me, their playsuits/rompers are the best and most beautiful I have ever bought. They fit like a glove and they are always the perfect balance of flirty, yet cute and classy. Beautiful silky, float-y material is used in many of their items

So now that I have emptied all your wallets, let me give you the factual details about shopping from Australia:

1. When you go on the sites the items look expensive, but they are nearly always in Australian dollar and when you convert that to euro - most of the times you will be shocked at how amazing value the items are!
2. Shipping prices range from $9 AUD for standard shipping and $25 AUD for express shipping; which is roughly €5 or €16 respectively. Where possible I use standard shipping. It takes longer yes, but there is less chance of it picking up taxes.
3. Sizing wise I feel like Australian clothes are some of the truest to size clothing that I've ever tried - I feel like they are very consistent. 

So there we have it, a round up of my favourite Australian online stores and a very small few of my favourite pieces they all currently have!

What are your favourite Australian online stores? I love finding new places to shop!
If you like this concept I can do my favourite UK and/or USA stores - let me know below <3

Five minute summer makeup look

Hello my loves,

I posted a picture on Instagram earlier today showing you my 5 minute look for when you needed to be ready 5 minutes ago! 
This is actually the story of my life; I do NOT do early mornings and I have a bad habit of over estimating the amount of time I have to get ready. I will lie in bed till the very last minute possible and then be in panic mode.

The products that I'm going to show you are all drugstore/chemist brands. (bar one product, but this isn't an essential part to the look to be honest so you can switch it up or leave it out, totally up to you!)
The aim of this look is to literally have it as fool proof as humanly possible - so you can basically do it half asleep - this was the most important thing to me!
Also in the summer with that clammy, humid weather I hate having thick makeup on because I feel like I am melting like a snow-cone the second I leave the house; I feel patchy and gross for the whole day then. So everything I am is using here is to keep the skin and face light, fresh and very natural - i.e. PEEERRFECT for summer!


Primer: Makeup Revolution Aqua priming base (This is spray on primer and it feels so refreshing and cooling)
Foundation: Rimmel #InstaFlawless skin tint in light/medium (this is literally just a tint, it doesn't have any extra coverage to it, it will just even out your skin tone and give you a healthy finish. I wear this on its own and under foundations too)
Concealer: Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer (This has a lovely serum texture so it doesn't feel cakey at all but it covers very well. I use this anywhere I need coverage)
Mascara: Soap & Glory Thick & Fast collagen mascara (my favourite trick to make your lashes look longer is t curl them beforehand - I know it seems time consuming but it literally takes less than 30 seconds and it gives you a wide awake look)
Lips: Huda Beauty Lip contour in 'Bombshell' and Maybelline Color sensation vivid matte liquid lipstick in 'Nude frill' (If you wanted the Huda Beauty lip contour in this shade and missed out - the Maybelline liquid lipstick is an absolute identical shade!)
Setting Spray:  Maybelline Super stay 24 hour setting spray (My tip for this is shake the bottle before you spray this, otherwise it can come out in very odd blobs..)

I did not do my eyebrows as mine are not a necessity when I'm in a rush but if you need to do your eyebrows quickly; I would recommend the L'Oreal brow artist sculpt product. It will tidy your brows and give a thicker appearance. 
If you have oily skin you can dust your face lightly with some translucent powder and then spray with the setting spray to remove the powdery texture.

I hope this was helpful! If you try any of my looks or use any tips let me know, I love to know that I've helped some of you! <3
