Quotes to live by…


Inspirational quotes and sayings always tend to strike a cord in my heart and mind. I love those little gift books full of quotes about being happy and seizing the day! They are great little pick me ups that suddenly make eveything feel brighter, and make me feel more motivatied. My diary is full of quotes that I’ve randomly noted down whenever I hear or read it. Some of the main quotes I love are by the great Coco Chanel. Not only was she brilliant in the design icons she created, Chanel was one extraordinary lady who inspires me, and possibly most of you, daily. Merci Coco!

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.
These are the amazing quotes that I try to live by everyday. What are yours? xoxo

NOTD: OPI’s Over the Taupe!


I absolutely LOVE this colour!! It’s a gorgeous warm chocolatey brown taupe colour. Neutral enough that it goes with everything but also a unique colour that stands out and looks very trendy. Application was easy, the wide brush and formula make the nail polish glide on smoothly and streak-free. I used 3 coats for my desired opacity. I’m crazy about Over the Taupe – it’s the perfect nail polish for winter!

Haul: MAC In The Groove


Yay I finally had time to head into MAC today to check out the In the Groove collection that was released in Australia last Monday 26th July. Yes, we are always really late when it comes to new releases here and it is so annoying but I guess it’s kind of a good thing too. Bad because I have to wait in jealousy, but good because I get to hear all the reviews on the products first and it gives me time to really think about what I want – otherwise I know me, if it looks pretty, I’ll just buy it (this still happened though lol). =&0=&

Don’t you just hate…


those people that start something and then leave it? Unfortunately, it seems that I have become one of those very people. Yikes! In my defense though, it has been a trés hectic month since my last post!! First off, let me say that I work full time as well as to go Uni part time… so I generally don’t have much free time to begin with. No excuses I know, no one made me start this. This past month was just, well, extra busy. Had to work my butt off to cover a co-worker who missed a couple of weeks work during the end of financial year (I work in finance so that sucks big time lol), lost my beloved iPhone, took a trip to the hospital and a got huge lesson in vanity, determination and what it means to love yourself no matter what.
