I am happy and proud to be an official ambassador Jeans for Genes Day and styling it up in my favourite boyfriend jeans. I am one of many bloggers who are styling up our favourite jeans in celebrating of Jeans for Genes Day 21st birthday. That's 21 one years of amazing fundraising and hard work to change the lives of 1 in 20 children affected by a birth defect or genetic disease. This charity is close to my heart as my youngest brother is living with Autism Spectrum Disorder, one of many things that children in Australia grow up with. Every dollar raised is put towards further research to help future and current generations of children. I encourage you spread the word and jump online to to become involved on this life changing charity by making a donation.

paulina katarina top & skirt | house of holland sunglasses | oia & jules necklace | vintage clutch | charlotte olympia heels

I have had this stunning top & skirt set from Paulina Katarina since spring and have had these photos sitting on my hard drive for awhile now. I'm not sure where the time has gone and I am now in Auckland, New Zealand for the next five weeks to do my teaching placement before I go back to classes in the March. I am currently missing the hot weather in Australia and moments like these where I can wear outfits such as this one. 

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

DIY HOME: Upcycled Chevron Lamp

For this project you can use any fabric and lamp of your choosing. I chose chevron as I have been wanting to add a splash of chevron into my room for quite some time.

- cotton fabric
- sewing scissors
- fabric glue
- pegs
- a lamp (you can pick these up from most op shops for only a few dollars)
- black spray paint (optional)

HOW TO: 1. Remove the base of your lamp and if you want to update the base with a colour use a spray paint. I chose gloss black spray paint for my lamp base. Remember to spray your lamp base in an open and well ventilated area, ensuring you have covered the ground with an old sheet or newspaper to avoid getting paint everywhere. 2. To do the head of the lamp you will need the cotton fabric, sewing scissors, fabric glue and pegs. 3. Cut the fabric to the width and height of the lamp head allowing an extra 1 - 2 inches for the edges. This is for when you have to apply the fabric to the lamp head later on. 4. Make sure you iron the fabric inside out to remove any creases or folds in the fabric. 5. Begin pegging the fabric to the lamp starting from the back in seam of the lamp (back of the lamp head) as this is where the fabric will be seamed together later on. 6. After you have securely wrapped the fabric around the lamp head using the pegs and are happy with how the fabric is sitting. Begin removing sections of the pegs and apply the fabric glue. Place the pegs back into position to secure the fabric to the glue for drying. Do this for top and bottom of the fabric on the lamp head. 

7. When you reach the back of the lamp fold the end of the fabric and glue it over the beginning of the fabric on the lamp head. Secure the fabric with pegs and apply more fabric glue if needed.

8. Once your lamp base and lamp head have dried, put them back together and you now have a new lamp for your home.

talulah jumpsuit | karen walker sunglasses | proenza schouler ps11 | wittner sandals

I am a sucker for a good jumpsuit and this Talulah jumpsuit is a current favourite for Spring. I associate Talulah with an explosion of colour and it's hard not to get lost in their array of vibrant and colourful prints each season. I have also finally invested in a pair of basic sandals from Wittner when I my only shoe options were heels or my very old pair of converse shoes. They are the most comfortable pair of sandals I have ever owned and have been on high rotation since I brought them in October. I am now finished uni for the year with only one more to go so I am going to try and get back into the swing of paying my other love (the blog) some overdue attention over the next few months.

After what seems like months of not updating the blog (apologies) I am back to take part in "The Castaway Style Challenge" for Wish.  I fell in love with this bluebird maxi dress the moment I laid eyes on it in the lookbook. It makes for the perfect beach dress and for every other occasion in between. There is nothing better then having a dress in your wardrobe that is versatile for most moments in your life. I find my life has been a blur the last few months. This is what happens when you overload at uni while still working to pay the bills. Still problem solving out how to juggle the degree and job I love with my passion for fashion blogging.

billabong woodstock bikini | bec & bridge hat | ksubi sunglasses

My birthday came early this long weekend with the addition of these new bikinis from Surf Dive n' Ski which have been on high rotation with this beautiful beach weather. It was the perfect weekend to celebrate not only the fact I am a year older but also to celebrate with Surf Dive n' Ski's on the launch of their annual 2014  swim campaign 'Girl and the Sea'. If you don't find me at the beach of my days off then expect to find me at my local SDS store adding to my summer wishlist.

Now I thought I had posted this months ago, but somehow what I think I've done and what actually has been done are two different concepts. Not sure where my head space has been the last few months but it clearly needs to come back down to earth. I am thrilled to share with you the behind the scene photos I shot of Elliatts SS/13 collection that is due to start dropping in store soon. I am loving the splash of neon in this collection and cannot wait to get my hands on the lookbook to start my spring wishlist.

 Chevron is one of those prints you can love in almost any colour. Chevron can be added in any way, shape and form to your home decor. Think pillows, wall art, bedding, rugs, wallpaper, straws and so on. I love the idea of adding pops of chevron detailing to freshen up my home decor, which I feel has gotten a tad stal. Time to start planning some more DIY projects to help freshen up my home.

Wishing you all a Happy Monday!
