paper heart floral bow dress

Dress: Paper Heart. Sunglasses: Rubi. Shoes: Kmart.

The first time I tried this dress on I was instantly in love. It is a kind of silky material with floral print, fitted under bust and flared skirt, backless with cute bow detail and a tulle skirt underlay. Unfortunately, it is too short for my tall self and as my boyfriend and I are planning our first trip overseas I sold it on EBay.

These pictures are a few months old now and I feel like my style has changed significantly since then but winter and work has really been getting me down lately so I haven’t taken any new photos or bought many new clothes. I want to concentrate more on experiences (like skydiving) than material things however saving seems impossible like there is always something that needs to be paid for. While I want to travel more than anything I do not have the money for it (update: we've booked a holiday to Bali in September, wooh!) so hopefully I can start showing you the magic of my local area, that is when I get a day off work, which I haven't for over a month now.

Also, my blog will soon be going through a massive makeover and to celebrate I will be doing an international giveaway for a black Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera for all of my followers, so watch this space!

my skydiving expirience

I am completely terrified of heights and planes and to celebrate my boyfriend’s twenty-first birthday we decided to take him Skydiving. Originally we planned for just him and his brother to go. However, the fear of missing out on an incredible life experience and the quote “You won't regret the things you did but the things you didn't do when you had the chance” made me really think about and eventually decide to go.

It was a little cloudy on the day and after being strapped up and given a rundown on what happens we scooched into the tiny plane that would take us up to the jumping altitude of 14,000ft (4,267m) where it was 0°C. By this time I was absolutely terrified but we slide up to the door and were out so fast I barely had time to think about not wanting to go. The feeling was indescribable; it wasn't like falling at all. We had 60 seconds of freefall before the parachute was pulled. As we floated down to the ground my instructor pointed out landmarks on the earth below and let me steer by pulling the handles on the parachute before coming in to a weirdly soft landing on the grass.

Overall I am extremely happy and proud that I went and I would actually go again. I hope you enjoy the video and embarrassing pictures below, also here is my boyfriend's video if you're interested, I like his video much more then my own. Fun fact: I was born in the town we jumped above!

And Thank you Byron Bay Skydive!

52 marine, coolangatta + paper heart lilac skater

Dress: Paper Heart. Sunglasses: Unknown. Shoes: Kmart.
 Where: 52 Marine. What I Ordered: Chicken, Cheese and Avocado on Turkish

This dress is one of seven paper heart skaters I have in this cut (here is one in an Aztec print I have shown you before). These dresses are so cute with a tight waist, feminine flared skirt and the cute cut out detail in the top. 

52 Marine is a little CafĂ© located on the main street of Coolangatta, we definitely popped in because of the way this place is decorated with the modern patters and wooden detail. The food is presented and cooked spectacularly but is a little on the pricey side. 

My blog is undergoing a huge make over soon and with that I am doing an International Giveaway for a black Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid camera. So follow and watch this space!

P.S My boyfriend and I went skydiving for his 21st birthday on the 20th of June and I cannot wait to post about it but the videos are in ‘VOB’ format and I cannot find a way to convert them on my Mac to be able to upload them!

vero moda jeggings

Jacket: Used. Shirt: New Look. Pants: Vero Moda. Shoes: Sports Girl. Sunglasses: Rubi.

Every piece I am wearing in these pictures are my go to casual items. These are my first ever pair of Jeggings, I purchased them from Asos, they are super tight, warm enough for our Australian winter and I actually wear them everywhere, including work. This cute little fox print shirt is one of three New Look Tee’s I bought from Asos, it is so rare to find a well fitting girl's Tee and it is definitely a new essential for me as you can put them with nearly anything. I am so in love with the new Flatform, Platform, Big Sole trend and being so tall it is hard to wear them casually but I found these weren't too over the top and I am still shorter than my boyfriend, making them perfect.
