CS: Cheryl

It's official. Winter is coming and all the signs are here. 

- Reaching for serious skincare like oils (Aesop Fabulous Face Oil is still my fave)
- Switching up my go to nail polish (currently OPI How Great is Your Dane)
- Picking up the heaviest denier tights I could find from The Warehouse. Not like I bared my legs a lot but you know. That's just not really an option right now!
- Ditching t-shirts for long sleeves and heavy sweaters. 

Stella Magazine tweeted a picture of Cheryl and I loved her outfit so much I had to create a 'get the look' board. It's all about heavy textures. A v-neck cropped sweater with a tweedy skirt. Re-create the look with a longer length v-neck sweater (luxe version: Cashmere V-neck from Equipment), paired with a boucle A-line skirt from Topshop. For shoes, I would go with a black suede ankle boot and opaque tights. 

To all my northern hemisphere readers, hang tight. I'll be gathering some spring inspiration for you soon!

Do you follow celebrity style? Do you have a favourite/s? Or is it a bit meh and tacky? Share your thoughts!

Anti Hangry Muesli Bars

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

I can't believe hangriness is not a thing everyone believes in. I'm someone who gets hangry a lot, specially around that weird time between 3pm and dinner. Sorry for the lack of measurements in this post. I measured visually and ended up with five days worth of snacks for myself. 

Coconut flakes
Apple Sauce
Goji Berries
Pumpkin Seeds
Sweetener of Your Choice
Oat flour

- Toast oats and coconut flakes in the oven for around 15 minutes on 150c. 
- When cook, mix with other dry ingredients in a bowl. 
- Add apple sauce and sweetener. Make sure it's combined well. 
- Line a tray with baking paper.
- Place an even layer of the muesli mixture and compress. 
- Bake around 15 to 20 minutes on 150c (depends on your oven, keep a close eye on it). 
- Let it cool down before serving. 
- Want to make it last for the whole week? Great! Individually wrap them and store in the fridge. Mine keeps for around five days and gets less crumblier as it gets older. 

Do you have a tried and tested muesli bar recipe? Keen to share it? Do you get hangry too? 

Scrapbook | Grey

Monday, March 16, 2015

A recent trip to my favourite op shop means I have two smelly but incredibly heavy dad style sweaters waiting to be taken to the dry cleaners. One sweater is your classic basic b* go to - navy. Cable knit and real wool - complete with fancy official wool logo and all. The other is this weird swirly grey with flecks of white. Can't explain it.  You'll no doubt see it in my next YouTube video (which will of course open with 'Heyyyy guys' lol) when I film the fourth 'episode' of my Capsule Wardrobe Series. 

I haven't done one of these in a while but I hope you enjoy this scrapbook style post! What were your favourite streetstyle images from fashion month? Are there any grey pieces you're eyeing up for the colder months ahead?
