Capsule Collection

All items from Cotton On, Glassons and H&M

I managed to resist the Black Friday online sales but hot damn the Cyber Monday got me hitting up all the sales. I purchased nearly all the items you see above... when it is 40% off though it is seriously rude not to just type in those bank details! Plus I have literally parted with half of my wardrobe as it either no longer fits or I no longer love it. So I have to restock my wardrobe with some cute new pieces right? And it all fits in with the summer capsule collection wardrobe I am curating (sorry UK people who ae freezing their asses off in the peak of winter)...

Book Club - "Why Not Me?" Mindy Kaling


Anyone who knows me knows I am a big Mindy Kaling fan. She is just so funny and honest and cool and I want to bebest friends pleaseeee. This book is a follow-up to her 2011 memoir Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? which I reviewed a little while back and you can read here. Mindy is such a #girlboss as she is not only an actress but a writer, producer and director of her own show, The Mindy Project, I mean c'mon how badass is that?! 

Week in Pictures #24

Family

L-R: Charlotte's 10th birthday party; Milla's first dance concert; with my favourite boy.

Hectic weekend with my Aussie family. So proud of my little Milla for absolutely killing it at her first ballet show. She is the youngest one in the whole group and was honestly the best little mouse, I know I am biased but look at that weee face in that adorable costume - SO FREAKIN' CUTE. 

November Goals


I can't begin to tell you how weird it is for the weather to be 20 plus degrees every day in November - so used to being back in Scotland freezing my arse off. Here are my current goals I am working on this month.


GET MY SHIT TOGETHER

The end of my time in Australia and my year of travels is quickly coming to an end which is such a mix of emotions! I am really looking forward to catching up with everyone back home but I am also going to miss carefree travel life and this amazing country so much. With time flying as fast as it is it also means I need to get my shit together and start looking into jobs back in the UK. Ugh honestly the thought of CVs and cover letters and all that shit is just the worst. I have made baby steps and downloaded Pages for my MacBook, so at least that is a start to fully fledged adulthood right?

Week in Pictures #23

Sunday

L-R: new sunglasses calls for a selfie; Fitzroy market; matching my dress with the graffiti, high levels of sass. 

Had an ideal Sunday drinking and eating in the sun, visiting a market and hanging around the coolest Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. Perfect place for some OOTD shots that I will share soon!

Week in Pictures #22

Weekend 

L-R: not a bad spot for a drink; how cute are these takeaway coffee cups; rooftop drinking is my favourite.

Finally made it to a rooftop in Melbourne CBD. Was so cool to have a glass of champers and catch up with my lovely friend Hannah in the sun. It is always good to catch up with Scottish friends as they know how to hold their liquor!

Week in Pictures #21

Derby Day Spring Races
L-R: selfie with my fascinator; first glass of champagne with the girls; getting ready to watch the races; perfect picnic set up.

Slightly different take on Week in Pictures as I couldn't pick just three pictures from the Derby Day Races as there were too  many good ones so thought I would share this post instead. Spring Carnival is a Melbourne tradition and thousands of people go to the races to get dressed up, drink champagne and bet on some horses. It was so much fun to get dolled up and my host mum even treated me with a hairdressers appointment hence why my hair is sitting so fabulously. Plus she kitted me out with the dress, fascinator and clutch bag saving me a lot of dollar and making me feel so fancy on the day - thanks Suz!
