"Bling" is such a horrible word. If i were to use it, i would say "this is my new so called bling". But, i never do use it. If you read my blog regulary you probably notice i have two new accessories. I thought i'd give you a closer look! So here is my new Tiffany & Co bracelet and Karen Walker necklace.
Happy New Year Lovers,

I kind of feel like a stalker when i wear this shirt with Aggy's face plastered on the front. I love/ admire her. I secretly wish the image was just that little bit bigger, just so it was even clearer to those walking past me. If Aggy knew her face was printed on this shirt, I'm sure she'd be very proud. Who wouldn't want their entire face on a shirt?
The hat: This is stolen... Stolen from Jonathan's wardrobe. My mum even asked "Do you guys share that hat". It was more of an extended borrow for this trip. I have the most hideous regrowth and this little black piece of felt was a very convenient way to disguise my bad hair week. I keep telling everyone that i have balayage, but I'm pretty sure that joke is well and truly over. Sad but true. I think it's time to contact my hairdresser and tell her I'm in desperate need of new hair.
Still not over the comfort of these pants. They're heaven. Conveniently casual or conveniently not...Either way I love wearing them,
Hope your planning some cool things for tomorrow night!

My new perfume off Mumma and Papa.
I've had it before and I love it. It's a subtle blend of fruits, woods and dry florals. It stays on me all day long as well, which is unreal. Normally i can not smell perfume after the first couple of hours.
Mum really kicked a field goal with picking it.
This is one of many cool presents i received this Chrissy!

Dress: Lucky 13, Shoes: Sports girl, Watch: Nixon,
These photos were taken at where Jonathan and I stayed a couple of nights. The place is called Q-Station, it is on North Head,just out of Manly, Sydney. It is the most amazing place ever. The scenery is wicked; from your room and balcony you look out on Sydney Harbour. The Q-Station is on acreage so there is so much to do and see while staying there. I know I'm a fashion blog and you probably don't really care about all these details but seriously- the place is super, super rad! Q-Station used to be the place where immigrants in the 1800's were taken to be quarantined before being let into Australia. Since the early days, ownership of the Quarantine Station has been transferred from the Commonwealth to the State Government and it is a reserved part of Sydney Harbour National Park. Now you can stay there! Which we have done the past two years...
I totally forgot to mention that the place is said to be "haunted". I don't necessarily believe that, but
you definitely get an eerie feeling while you're there, especially at night. We did the Ghost tour last year and right at the end they took us to the shower block where they used to give people acid baths. I'm not going to lie, I got so scared. I may or may not have screamed when the chick hosting our tour intentionally scared me. Far out was I on edge.
You will see a bit of these Sportsgirl shoes as i didn't take too many shoes with me- which is unusual for me. And as one of my readers stated they're "Heaven built in heels. A luxury for tallies!" I couldn't have said it better myself. Normally I try and fit in my entire wardrobe "just in case" I need something. But this time I saved more room for boxing day sale items- I'll have to do a post on what I bought! The dress is what I am showing you mainly in this post. I love it. Perfect cut and length for me. Favourite feature: The back.
I'll be drawing the winner of our giveaway soon! SO make sure you get your last minute suggestion in on my Facebook page!

I have had the greatest time away. Our flight back to the gold coast leaves tomorrow night and I really don't want to go back. If i could be on holidays forever i would be quite happy.
How were your Christmas days? I hope Santa was kind to you all. He was extra kind to me this year. Stoked on every present i received.
We have been hiding out in Terrigal, Manly and Narrabeen. I love visiting family- it's so much fun. The weather for the first half of our holiday was really nice, the second half has been balls. Hence why i have a chance to blog.
I have missed blogging for you all! Because i haven't blogged in what feels like forever, i thought i'd incorporate an outfit post and a photo diary post. I hope you like looking through my photo diary!
I feel like i have put on about 10kg's in 6 days. Copious amounts of alcohol and food does that to you though.
Hang tight for another post soon!
p.s don't rag on my heading- i didn't have my drawing tablet with me to do my heading.

I thought if I bought swimmers it would make the rain stop. I only just bought them an hour and a half ago....So far not such luck. I hope the silly weather stops soon, I really want to wear my swimmer to the beach and finish my surfing lesson (my Boyfriend is in the middle of teaching me...I stood up four times yesterday!)
Photo: First one is really bad/shitty Photobooth quality. I didn't feel like getting the camera out.
Second photo I ended up getting the camera out.
I'll get better photos soon!

I am in love with these One Teaspoon shorts. I was a little hesitant about the sides but now that's my favourite part!
How was all your weekends?
Mine was very fun! Friday night I had a little Christmas dinner with a couple of my best-friends. We had such a fun night drinking cocktails and we made a Christmas gingerbread house (our present to each other) We finished making it very late. Only we would bake at 11:30pm after a few cocktails. It was named "the mangled gingerbread house. We were basically the definition of Christmas joy, so that's all that matters.
I finished up my Christmas shopping today. Now i am counting down the days 'til i head home for Christmas. Far out i am excited. So expect a lot of Sydney photos in the next few weeks!
Ps: Do you like me posting photos at this size? I increased the width...
