Wind In My Hair And Sun At My Feet




I’ve spent the past (almost) week up at the coast and despite a rainy start, it has been absolutely fabulous. My days have been filled with strolls and swims on the beach, shopping, drinking ice tea, reading (Love, Rosie), watching TV whilst being able to look to my left and see the waves rolling in (etc).

I have had makeup free days and the sea salt has performed miracles for my skin and hair. I can say and I quote from my friend Ains “I’m just letting the sea do it’s thing.”

Despite the melting heat here in Oz on the coast; some days have been uncomfortably sweaty and humid, but I still do enjoy having the literal wind in my hair and sun at my feet.

I really think everyone needs to just get away and chill every once in a while. Now this is hard for me because I like going to places where everyday I am doing something new, I am not a big fan of just purely relaxing around so, typically I can’t stay at the coast longer then a week, but a week is a perfect amount of time from some R&R.

Whats your favourite ways to relax?

Chapter 2015

Lifestyle, missjessamy


Hello Everyone,

Honestly, not to be cheesy (at all, this is a meaningful and true but mandatory New Years post), but it’s amazing how we can go from one year to another. One minute, second, millisecond, a blink of an eye can transform one year to another. All of one years memories are stored, so you can have new experiences in the new year. Everything you did and achieved in the year is added to a list to be edited by more experiences and achievements in the new year.

I really think this year has been the most fulfilling and happiest years I have had for a while. For a few years coming up to 2014 I had a lot of issues with friendships which really impacted me. Finally, I formed strong friendships this year (I’m not saying there weren’t moments I didn’t have an issue with friends) but I had an overall positive year.

I think the Christmas/New Year season it the best time to reflect and look back on your development and life over the closing year. I like to think as though every year is a chapter and as soon as that clock strikes 11:59pm on the 31st of December we are in the last sentence of the chapter then the clock changes to 12:00am and we have began the new chapter in which we have no clue what will happen in our life, what experiences we will have and where we will end up by the last sentence of the new year very much like a new chapter in a book.

I hope you had a great 2014 and enjoyed it’s chapter and have a Happy New Year.
Enjoy Chapter 2015.

New Years Eve Lookbook


Hello Everybody

As the New Year is quickly approaching, I thought it would only be appropriate to do a New Years Eve Look-book.  Also, all of the outfits in this post are Australian summer orientated- nut they are easily interchangeable for the seasons.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.14.32 pm

Commonly on New Years Eve, people go for quite heavy eye makeup and a bold lip colour, and I am very much following that trend above.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.14.17 pm

All the looks above are bright and shiny due to the sequins. This is the essence of New Years eve so remember to have fun with your outfits on this Eve. If you go full out for the makeup and the outfit keep your shoes neutral like the ones above. This allows your makeup and outfit to stand out and pop more.

Check out my Polyvore to find these looks, where you can buy the looks and more.

Hope this post gave you some ideas.

Happy New Years!

Hope you all have had a wonderful 2014 and have a fantastic 2015. Thank you for supporting my blog all through this year.

Love Jess xx

My Routine: Morning Wake Up


Hello lovely people,

I am thinking of starting a new series on my blog called My Routine. I’ll do multiple posts on all different routines I do in my life. So, today I am going to start with my wake up routine. I am going to try to go in the order of routines from when I wake up to when I go into my slumber for this series. 🙂

Let’s begin:

1. When I first wake up; usually to an alarm. As I am on holidays at the moment I don’t have a specific time that I wake up but usually in my normal school routine, I’ll wake up at 5:30/6am. Anyways, I normally check my emails, twitter, Instagram and messages on my phone (on my night stand) right when I wake up.

2. Then I will build up the strength to get up and go into the bathroom to pull my hair up and do other things..

3. Then I will head outside for some breakfast. Generally, I eat healthily for breakfast. So I will have a smoothie or Weet Bix w/ Almond Milk and Chia Seeds or if I have extra time 2 eggs on corn thins. Accompanying this, I will have a cup of Jasmine Green Tea and sometimes a Berocca.

4. With my breakfast, I will then go watch some Youtube whilst I eat or chat to my family (whoever is up or around at the time).

5. I will then go get ready for the day 🙂

And, that concludes my Morning Wake Up Routine.

Talk Soon,

Jess xx

Lunch With My Lovelies


Hello Everybody,

The other day I went out for the day with two of my friends, Mahlee (Fat Little Fiat) and Nicola. We went shopping, ate lunch and went to see the movie Wish I Was Here. This movie was amazing, I loved it and it made both myself and Mahls cry and Nicola was on the verge of tears. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a funny, emotional and different movie.

I took a couple of photos of my day, and thought even though there are only a few, I would share them with you anyway Enjoy!


This is my amazing lunch. Chicken Katu Sushi and Antipodes water. I am obsessed with this water’s bottle – I keep refilling it 😉


This is Mahls’s lunch. She had the same water and sushi as me but also got an amazing Banana Smoothie.


This is the cinema we went to. How amazing it is? So pretty, I had never seen a cinema like this before. We all found it super exciting.

Even though I don’t have a photo of it, Mahlee and I found a new obsession on this day thanks to Nicola. She introduced us to Coconut Chips and they are soooooo amazing, they are literally coconut heaven (I am a huge coconut fan btw). I got a can of the original flavour and the chocolate flavour and so did Mahlee. We had them as our healthy (hmm..maybe not so, but better then normal chips) cinema foodI highly recommend getting some if you are wanting a delicious snack. Thanks Nic 🙂 x

Thanks for reading! Talk soon guys.

Love Jess xx
