Currently Wearing… Sally Hansen’s Pixel Pretty

Loving this teal nail polish by Sally Hansen. A little glitter, a little sheen. Inspired to wear teal clothes too!

Peachy

Peachy vibes today!  I am wearing my new “Life’s a Peach” undies from MeUndies. These were a gift from a close friend who lives overseas! There are a few of us girls, travel buddies, that are nicknamed ‘The Peaches’ so this gift was so appropriate! We were ordering peach flavoured alcoholic mixers back in Vietnam, January, 2009 and the waitress was saying bitch instead of peach. So funny, to say, hello, another bitch please! So The Peaches were born.

I’m panda peach, and there’s puppy peach, kitty peach and monkey peach. So inspired by my peach knickers here’s a mood board all about peach fashion and beauty!

Scarf-a-thon – 72 and We’re Done!

The final scarves! I have worn every scarf I own, except for 3 I’m getting rid of and one I will be travelling with for a month, so it will get worn a lot while I’m away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This geometric print rarely gets worn. The print is of flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A present one birthday, thin and silky.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Kmart number, orange and blue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My mum bought this is New Zealand during Scarf-a-thon. So it had to get worn in the challenge!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A really old birthday gift, navy and pink knit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this from Accessorise in Vancouver in 2010.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A classic Kmart animal print that works as a neutral. Hence why I took it to South America!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was another one bought in China, when I went Scarf crazy in 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another NZ gift, complete with paua shell!

 

So there, Scarf-a-thon 2017 is done! I can’t believe I committed for so long, impressive. Now what will next year’s wardrobe challenge be?

Scarf-A-thon – 64 and counting!

Well I’ve done it! 64 scarves worn, in, you guessed it – 64 days! Check out my latest 16.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies…. this one is pretty, worn out for a walk!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely jewel tones in this scarf from Camden, London. Bought on my first big overseas trip!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Bali purchase, red and purple…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this was a Kuala Lumpur purchase, Chinatown shopping!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty sure this was a Kmart number. Lots of colours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another owl print, this was a birthday gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anchors! Kmart? I have so many blue scarves…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Large knitted snood. Love the knit on this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Polka dots, bought in Melbourne!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies, with my new unicorn brooch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A random throwback, this scarf was bought in Istanbul 10 years ago!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Kuala Lumpur purchase, they were super cheap!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love this one, no idea where it came from? Holiday purchase, gift?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this lovely scarf in Cambodia back in 2009.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thin and silky, this one is prone to fall off. I ended up knotting the front.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lovely silk number is from Vietnam. Kept it in place with my cat badge!

Scarf-A-Thon Post 3

Another 12! I have decided to go to 48, and any scarves not worn after that run the risk of being donated or thrown out. Only fair I think?

Anyway, here’s 25 to 36!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A bright, orange floral print that I bought in Melbourne about 5 years ago.

I always have to buy scarves when I go to Melbourne!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely cream and colourful butterflies. I think this is from KMart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Subdued pale lilac with a grey tree branch pattern. I think this could have

been a gift? Worn with maroon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Purple and plaid! I have had this scarf for a long time, no idea where it came from!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a gift from my mum. Loved how it matched my tights!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange and Zebras, what’s not to love?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black, red and turquoise, a gift brought back from India! Scarves are

the best souvenirs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely grey-blue plain scarf I bought in China. I bought a lot of scarves in China…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Bali buy. Worn out bush walking!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a fabulous scarf. So long and warm! Bought from Cotton On.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies! I think this was a gift from a colleague one year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a birthday gift about 8 years ago. Well worn and looking a bit

sad, perfect for wearing around the home.

 

See you soon for the final 12!

Absolute Haircare Favourites

Absolute Haircare Favourites

 

I am not that fussy when it comes to styling my hair. It is so thin and soft and slippery that it rarely holds a style and takes way more effort than I want to do things with it.
That being said, I can’t stand my oily roots and dry ends gig. I have towash my hair nearly every day or the scalp is super oily. Any sweat around the hairline also ruins it, and the cow lick! These are my faves for keeping it simple and easy to work with.
Dove Hair Therapy Oil is great on dried ends after shampooing. Hair oil is a great discovery!
In winter I like a mask for my hair to really nourish it as scarves, wind and dryness make it very brittle. Always choose a great Schwarzkopf one.
I’m not loyal to any shampoo brands, I like Tresemme and Dove. Anything with a pump is super easy in the shower.
I bought 3 of these brushes in 2014 from Forever 21 in Shanghai. Still going strong and under $4!
Batiste Dry Shampoo is the absolute best. I don’t go anywhere without it. EVER. The travel sizes are perfecto!
The L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss semi permanent hair colour covers my greys for a while and gives my hair an all over shine. I use it every couple of months.
Tresemme Split Remedy on dry ends works a treat for split ends. Another after the shower product.
