And she’s back at it again with the over the knee boots!! I love that these boots have the gorgeous lace up detailing on the back, matched back with the colour it looks bohemian and chic. However, me being me I’m not hugely bohemian and the best I could incorporate the boho vibes is this frayed chambray hem shirt from A brand hanging down the back mixed with slouchy knitwear from MLM. A perfect look for Fashion Week when you don’t want to look too serious and don’t want to blend in with all the black & flares

Loving this head to toe nude/ gold/ tan look with accents of shimmer and shine by Denisse M Vera. What a talented and gorgeous look she’s put together for me for the first night of Fashion Week! Tonight’s Toni Maticevski show was the perfect opener to the week, the event space was enormous, the stage was glowing white and the clothes were exceptional. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the week has in store!

Little black boots and a midi dress – my favourite pretty/ grunge combo. It’s never a bad time to stock up on dresses & Lyst has a really awesome selection with great brands. My fave style at the moment are midis, they’re that length that can be chic and not too slutty, dressed up or down. You can wear this style with a pair of heels or even with a tee underneath to make it even more casual.

A white shirt, black jeans and black boots are really a staple in anyone’s wardrobe, yeah? But I’ve amped it up in this look with this amazing August Street white shirt, it has two layers so you can wear the inside layer tucked in or out while there’s length in the back to keep it smart but casual. I’ve also lifted the boots game with these freakishly comfortable OTK boots from Siren. I wore them to dinner two nights in a row just to test them out, and I live in the city so if I’m going out I have to walk and I was walking a minimum of 15 minutes each way and I swear they’re the comfiest boots I’ve ever stomped in. The leather might need a couple wears to soften up but I think it’s worth it.

White and Grey

So I’m thinking I have a penchant for all white covered in grey with hints of black as seen in my other post here. At least I’m consistent? I love this look, it’s so simple and effective. I don’t know why but white jeans always seem to turn heads. Invest in a pair but I warn you DO NOT wear them over a fake tan. smh.

8 Chokers You Need

a-brand-jeans-le-specs-saint-laurent I’ve had alot of people ask me where I get my choker necklaces from and if you’ve been reading my previous posts you’ll know I’ve been a little DIY savvy and made my own out of ribbons but I’ve found a few, very inexpensive options online if you’d rather some a little more fun :)

If you saw my snapchat last week I mentioned I had been a little MIA because I was stressed & overwhelmed with life. It wasn’t a cry for attention more than me wanting to let everyone know the reality of things for me in the last week because sometimes our fave celebrities & bloggers put out all of the amazing parts of their life on social media but you never really see their insecurities or personal issues, we’re all human after all.

So in light of this I had to get out of the city and clear my head. We shot this look literally at the edge of the world. This is my fave new outfit, the heaviness in this leather jacket is amazing, and paired with these boots it’s so lit! Under it I’m wearing a basic jersey tee and shorts which was a colour match made in heaven because it looks like a cute romper.

Infidelity

After listening to Beyonce’s new album, Lemonade, for 40 hours straight this week & reading hundreds of articles of speculation I thought I’d share my thoughts on the topic of infidelity.

Now, I’m well aware that there are more topics raised in the album bigger than cheating but I’ll be focussing on the aforementioned.

Cheating comes in two forms: physically and emotionally: Physically is as little as a kiss with someone up to a whole night(s) together, however there’s no emotional ties with the act. Emotionally, and arguably the worse of the two is having an emotional connection with someone else while you’re in a committed relationship, which of course can lead to something physical whether you choose to or not.

Have I cheated? Physically, no. Emotionally, maybe, yes. But I didn’t let it drag on for long, not that that’s an excuse. I was in a two year committed relationship and probably the most amazing boyfriend I’ve had to date. I realised shortly after I had feelings for someone else so I couldn’t really be in love with this boy so I ended it. That was put particularly harshly but of course there’s more to it than that.

Have I been cheated on? I honestly don’t know. There’s a very high chance, but I haven’t had it confirmed and tbh I don’t need it to be as it’s all water under the bridge.

Is cheating forgivable? Every relationship is different and you can’t pigeonhole an answer to yes or no. I have a lot of people close to me in my life who have dealt with this issue. A lot of it was within marriage which puts a spanner in the works. Some have worked it out and some have broken up over it, not without fighting for the relationship though.

My boyfriend is cheating on me, what do I do? I would say leave him, throw his stuff out the door, cry with your girlfriends, watch Sex & the City and move on with your life.

But he says he loves me and it won’t happen again? Make him bloody work for it, work for YOU! You’re a fine ass fox if he really meant it he WILL work for it. Sometimes it takes a infidel act to make someone realise that the grass isn’t greener on the other side after all. Again, every relationship is different but if it happens more than once it’s a BAD sign. But even once has ruined all trust in the relationship so you really need to assess whether this relationship is worth stressing over every time he’s out with his ‘mates’ late at night.

Ok I dumped his ass, how do I deal? Stay busy, stay focussed on being a whole person again without someone by your side, have goals and don’t let one of those goals be to screw his best friend or make like the FBI and stalk him and ‘the other woman’ (because I know all of your girls know how!) Distance is your best friend and time is the only thing that can heal you. As Bey put it “Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper” – Formation. Which I interpret to be your success.

I genuinely want all of my readers to be successful in their fields, their relationships and their life. Thanks for reading!

10 Signs he’s into you

bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela bikini-baywatch-pamela Showpo Pamela Bikini | Showpo Sunglasses | Bali Body


Whether you’re in a relationship or sussing out if he likes you these are the clear cut signs he cares about you and wants you. If he’s not doing these things you really need to reconsider if he’s really that into you…

1. He asks how your day is - he wants to know about your mundane, everyday things & even sends a ‘goodnight’ or ‘goodmorning’ text if you’re not physically together

2. He’ll double text – there’s no shame when it comes to getting your attention

3. He asks your opinion – he’ll ask “Do you like these sneakers?” before he buys them

4. He’ll hold you & kiss you in public – it doesn’t have to be an over-share of PDA but touching your hand over or under the table or holding you while you walk is pretty clear he wants the world to know he’s yours

5. He doesn’t take half a day to reply to you – you’re a priority in his life and you should expect to hear back from him in T minus 15 minutes

6. He notices little things – when you’ve changed your hair or if you’re wearing new jeans because your butt is looking extra fine

7. He compliments you – on your smile, your intellect, your choice in movies, your new shoes, guys like to let girls know they are looking, and why wouldn’t they, you’re hot!

8. He ignores his phone when you’re together – the only person he wants to hear from is with him

9. He makes an effort to see you – he’ll come over from the other side of town to hang out if he has to, not only when it’s convenient

10. He makes an effort to get to know your friends - instead of being jealous of your guy friends he’ll get to know them, and he’ll make sure he’s in with your best girlfriends because it’s important to be in their good books. He’s expecting to be with you long term so why not be friends with yours?

How to nail your first date with a girl who is successful

jumpsuit-balenciaga balenciaga balenciaga balenciaga Sheike Jumpsuit | Balenciaga Bag | Lace Up Booties | THP Shop Earrings


So you’ve finally convinced the super banging girl of your dreams to go on a date with you, maybe she’s not even the girl of your dreams yet but top 10 in your 60 matches on Tinder. So how do you nail that first date? Read on…

1. Have a list of restaurants/ cafes/ places to take her. If she says she’s not picky, it means she wants you to make the decision. There’s something sexy about a guy who can make decisions because this girl is probably making decisions all day in her own life and her job. It’s nice for someone to take the weight off once in a while.

2. Don’t be late - If you’re prone to being late to things then aim to be early. If you think it’ll come off as cool and nonchalant rocking up late, it’s not. This girl has taken time out of her busy schedule to meet you so don’t waste it, she’s organised and she’ll feel respected if you arrive early/ on time. First impressions count!

3. She’ll like it more if you book a table instead of just rocking up to a venue and hoping they have a spot & waiting around for 30 minutes. It shows you’re organised & thoughtful. Obviously coffee or lunch would be a different situation.

4. Don’t mention how much you’ve stalked her on social - you might think it’s cute and endearing and she’ll love the attention but it kind of just comes across as creepy. (Even though she’s probably done the same to you.)

5. Stay off your phone - There’s nothing more rude than someone texting or checking their phone while at dinner. Not even on a first date but any date, even friend dates.

6. Eye contact and lots of questions – I know how hard it must be not to let your eyes slip and go south of the lips “but she’s wearing that low cut top, obviously she wants me to look?!” No, she doesn’t. You look like a creep.

7. Pay – Maybe I’m old school but there’s something chivalrous about a guy who doesn’t expect you to pay for half the meal… unless of course the date sucked! Girls love guys who are generous.

8. Walk or drive her home - this shows you want to end the date on a good note, that you care if she gets home safely and you want to spend those extra few minutes with her.

9. Don’t ask to go back to her place – that’s also just creepy, unless she suggests it, then do not bring it up.

10. Kiss her – Don’t be a pussy. This is where the fireworks happen! Unless the date was a failure and there was no chemistry, then don’t kiss her, or unless you met up for coffee and its midday then yeah don’t kiss her in broad daylight – that will be awkward and there will be people around. No to PDA!

11. Text her by lunchtime the next day - if you text her that night you run the risk of looking too keen and desperate, keep her interested, but five days or even 24 hours is too long. She wants to know you really like her and that you’ve been thinking about her.

Good luck, guys and happy dating!
