Life Lately 8/7

8 Jul 2015

As a lifestyle blogger I definitely ramble on a lot, about a variety of things. But less about what's going on in my actual life. So I thought I'd throw a "Life Lately" post in there every now and then with some little updates. 

I'm lucky enough to get to work with one of my best friends, which is awesome. We work together in one of these huge chain hardware stores in Australia. The store that we work in just had its first birthday and to celebrate there was a big fancy dress party. The store has a lot of staff, and pretty much everyone participated in dressing up which was great!
How Sweet are our outfits! Couples costumes for the win! That's some pinnable costuming right there my friends. Both of our sweet outfits are brought to you by eBay. Though Tilly expertly made her own pokeballs and velcroed them to her belt, and also made an Ash Ketchum wig out of a black bob that she cut and gelled. She's a costume expert. We've been to Twilight covered in glitter and to Harry Potter as Hogwarts students.
Josh and I tidied up the entire house, and courtyard and amazingly enough for the first time since we have moved in together we decided to have friends over for a BBQ. We have been meaning to for ages but had not got around to it. We have a pretty barbecue and a lovely area, and the only negative was that it's really cold at the moment. 

It was good to finally have some friends over, a lot of people hadn't seen our house yet. We fired up the BBQ, laid out a bunch of snacks and set up a spotify playlist. Everyone was really good with bring snacks as well, we ended up with such a large variety of dips! It was an adventure.
We rolled up the rug just in case of any spillages and just general foot traffic. Many games of Worms & DC Injustice on PS4 were played. Along with a round of Cards Against Humanity. If you haven't played it before, definitely get on that. It's an experience. 
Recently I had spotted on my cousin's Facebook that she had this super cool bench that my grandparents had made her. I commented thinking man that is nifty and now here I am with my very own bench! I couldn't be happier! Look how nice it is! It even has a spot for a plant of my choice, and if you know me I went and found the plant with the biggest leaves that I could. Perfect!
Btw I'm still absolutely loving my new hair so so much. As well as my super cool denim jacket from Princess Polly. Yep I'm still wearing it daily. Making up for years of not owning one. I'm also completely on board with the roll neck sleeveless tops this Winter.

 I got this sweet grey one from Dotti. My notoriously bad dark circles + eyebags are still going strong. Except when I manage to get a miracle photo with magic lighting that somehow mostly hides them. 

I did buy a new under eye treatment by Natio, which I'm not too sure is working that well anyway. (do any eye treatments really work??) But I will be putting up a review on that shortly. 
In the mean time, here are some cool things i'm loving right now:


That's all for now! I might do a Life Lately type deal fortnightly from now on... that is if I actually get up to anything at all! ha 
Cya! xx

  6. That's a cute costume! I can't imagine how much fun it must be to work with your friend! My best friend and I are planning to be summer camp counselors together next year. Well, it's all very hypothetical, but I really hope we follow through on it! It'd be one hell of a summer! Looove your hair :) and omg please, my dark circles are so much darker haha; you don't need to worry about a thing :P asdfghjkl I don't know how I feel about A Series of Unfortunate Events! The books were my childhood, the film was a flop for me, so I'm kinda nervous about the TV show :s but it could be really really amazing soooo I'm excited to see what it'll be like! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  10. Your courtyard is the thing dreams are made of. Simple, and gorgeous and just aesthetically pleasing! Oh my god you and your friends costumes are THE BEST.

    Can't go wrong with a denim jacket! It's been a few years since I've rocked it myself, but been wanting to buy one for a few months now...may actually have to start looking!

    Guuuuurl, my dark circles are terrible. I'm surprised people don't think I am a character from The Walking Dead! (I'm so with you on the lighting though, always try to take pictures in lighting that makes me actually look alive)

  19. You're right, that bench is soooo cool! I want one (even though I don't have a patio.... I'll figure it out). Also Cards Against Humanity is the bessssst. It's also the best way to get to know new people.
