30 Before 30: Start Taking Care of Your Skin

I’m turning 30 in under 30 weeks now, and I’ve compiled a 30 before 30 list: things that I am supposed to have done or to have stopped doing BEFORE I turn 30.

Each week until I actually turn 30, I will be sharing a new five-minute video where I discuss one of these 30 before 30 things that I am supposed to have either done or stopped doing; and whether I think that this actually applies to my life. These videos will be anecdotal and humorous takes, and not meant to be taken too seriously.

This is week two of the 30 before 30 countdown, and the topic is Number 2: Start taking care of your skin!

Skin and skincare have been on my mind a lot lately, especially has my 30th birthday looms nearer and nearer. Today I discuss why that is, the issues that I have with skin care generally, and ask for your recommendations for how I can improve my current skincare routine.

Thanks for watching 🙂

Staycation: QT Canberra


Fashfest is over for another year, and while I had a blast covering the event for my Blog and I’m already looking forward to and planning for Fashfest 2016; what most people don’t realise about an event like this is that it is hard work. As a Blogger attending a fashion show you’re expected (and rightfully so) to cover the event in sufficient detail, which means being present pre-show for traditional Media coverage, engaging with the collections shown while simultaneously capturing them on camera, battling all the other Bloggers for best picture, best post, best outfit; and of course to actually write, edit and post Blog posts, instagram pictures, and anything else you might feature.

Don’t get me wrong, I love every minute of this, but this doesn’t change the fact that it is hard work.

As such, it was a delight to be treated to a night of accommodation at QT Canberra for the final night of Fashfest 2015, meaning that I could turn the last 24 hours of Fashfest into a staycation while I devoted my time to covering the event.

Daily Outfit: Thirsty For Tokyo

1. Too eager to get something (especially play)
2. Desperate

I spent my second day in Tokyo rushing around trying to tick off some of the things on my massive list of things to do while I am here. I have been looking forward to this trip since I booked it back in August, and in that time I have gotten a little thirsty about it. I’m only here for eight days, after all, and there is stuff that I need to get done while I am here.

I was also literally thirsty all day, on account of the running around and the crush of human body heat on the trains and subways; so I spent a lot of time at vending machines. (more…)

Tokyo Day One: Daily Outfit

20141121_aThis morning I arrived at Narita Airport, before heading into Tokyo for eight days of adventure.

I came to Japan for the very first time last year with the boyfriend. I fell helplessly in love with the country, it’s people, and the culture. Tokyo, where I will spend most of my trip, is like everything you have ever read about it, but a thousand times more amazing.

I am so excited to be back in Tokyo, and I cannot wait to get started on some serious shopping and eating.
