Wearing: Thrifted sweater, shorts c/o Mad Love the Label, shoes c/o Nine West, Halo Jessica curler.

Watching me try and paint my nails recently, Kurt- looking on, horrified- said to me: “How can you not know how to do this? Isn’t it like, a prerequisite for being a girl?” You see the truth is that I’m not very good at the girly things- like painting my nails, doing my hair, keeping my skin moisturised and primed- but at least I know how to dress, right? Needless to say this collaboration- Nine West X Halo hair products– was an interesting one. Shoes, I can do, hair tools?! Not as much. The only styling tool I own, tbh, is a pink Breville clamp curler Santa brought me for Christmas about 12000 years ago. So this one is freakin amazing… I only needed one Youtube video and my hair game was so strong. And how great are these shooties? I love a good hybrid- jeggings are a beautiful, beautiful creation- and these are sports luxe in the best kind of way.

But as much as I love them, they’re not going to work for formal… and I’m desperately trolling every online store ever for a good pair. I’m yet to look at jewellery/accessories but for those Aussie girls in the same boat, Asos and The Iconic are some of the only sites with free shipping to AUS (+amazing prices and deals). Were you guys interested in a post or two about formal? Let me know in the comments! And have a good sleep. Because coffee can only substitute sleep for so long- I learnt the hard way. Goodnight lovers! xo

    Don’t worry, I’m probably even MORE clueless about hair stuff than you are 😛 I really love how you can make every casual outfit look so good!
