Roxanne Grace Jean Long Dress



I still can not forget these three looks from shop bop a few months back. I had never heard of the designer Roxanne Grace before but I love this maxi! It sold out before I had even finished looking through the different looks. Maybe after exams I will find it on eBay or another online store! I just really like how it can be casual but elegant at the same time - I must find something similar!

Miss Miss Shop

Here are some photos that my boyfriend took of me for the style competition I have decided to enter. It is the Myer Miss Miss Shop Competition. Taking photos is harder than it looks, I was feeling pretty awkward at first but relaxed a bit more once I got going which was a relief!

I thought I might as well give it a go as you have to be in it to win it! The prizes are pretty amazing too. If my style receives the most votes I will be crowned Miss Miss Shop and will win:
  • $25,000 to spend at Myer
  • 2 VIP Tickets to the first ever Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival Myer Miss Shop Show
  • Flip Mino II HD camcorder valued at $299
  • And get to be a Shop Til You Drop fashion assistant for a day
I am allowed to upload 5 photos to portray my style so far I have chosen the last shot. I am wearing a Wayne Cooper dress I bought from Myer for my 18th birthday party, Mimco necklace and Top End shoes.
 
Please vote for me so I have a better chance in winning the prize! - https://www.myer.com.au/missshop/profile.aspx?id=2905

TheClayCollection

It is me and my boyfriends 4 years soon and I had no idea what to get him! He has everything he needs/wants so I had no clue what I should get him as a little gift. I know he is obsessed with xbox and likes cuff links so all I did was type xbox cuff links into google and I found these!

They are perfect I knew he would like them straight away. I clicked the link and it lead me to a site called etsy.com i had never heard of it! But it is amazing so many nice hand made pieces that you can buy. These xbox cuff links are from one user called TheClayCollection. All of her stuff is really good I can see myself buying some more of her pieces for future presents!

GAGA VS BRITNEY

Apparently Lady Gaga wrote Telephone for Britney but she didn't like it so Gaga took it!


It sounds like a Britney song now I think about it, I still like Gaga's version better though, what about you?

Sauna or Steam Room?

At the gym I go to they have both a sauna and a steam room. Recently I have been sitting in the steam room after swimming as I thought it would be good for my skin. I then came to thinking what the benefits are so I did some research.

Steam Room

  • uses moist heat - therefore cannot attain as high temperatures as saunas

  • around 40 degrees

  • can benefit asthma, allergies, bronchitis

  • relief from muscle and joint tension

  • blood circulation improvement
Sauna

  • uses dry heat
  • 60-80 degrees
  • having a high body temperature detoxifies your body by killing the bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses
  • strengthens the immune system
  • improve blood circulation
I guess it depends what benefits you are looking to receive, but I'm still not sure which I prefer?
I think I will use the steam room if I have a cough but I think the higher temperature of the sauna benefits you more.

Which one do you prefer?

new ritual







Recently I have been starting my mornings with a new ritual.

Muesli, linseeds, strawberries, blueberries, Greek yoghurt and Sex and the City.
Considering I never even was awake in time to have breakfast this seems like a pretty good way to start my day, I get:
  • one serve of fruit
  • 60% of my fibre intake for the day
  • calcium
  • omega 3 - from linseeds
It tastes amazing and who could ever get sick of Sex and the City. I've seen every episode multiple times but still can't get enough.
