Insta-lately happy snaps

Hi lovelies! I'm back after moving and so glad to be in my own {little} apartment. it is so much better than I remembered from when I first inspected it; I'm feeling very lucky to have found such an amazing home! It is wonderful being back in the city too, I literally can walk out my front door + be surrounded by a gazillion restaurant/cafe/boutique choices which I definitely won't tire of quickly.


I thought I'd share a few insta-snaps from the past few days with what I've been up to...




1. My sister bought this divine smelling candle over on Saturday as a little housewarming present - it smells so delicious!


2. This is pretty sums much how my apartment looks right now (well, maybe a bit of an improvement has been made!)




3 + 4. I took these snaps on my second night here of this gorgeous boutique, literally a few doors down from my building. Have I mentioned that I love living here already??




5. I love my Zara pumps - I never normally wear heels and tend to stick mainly to ballet flats, but I had to make an exception for these - they were so lovely I couldn't resist them!


6. I've read stacks of overwhelmingly positive reviews about the Sonic Skin Cleansing system that I decided I needed to try it myself. It arrived today so will let you know how it goes.


Hope your Monday is off to a fab start!

  3. So happy to hear you're liking your new digs!! I have a Clarisonic that I've been using for about.. 7 months now. And I must say, it is as amazing as everyone claims it is. A few words of advice: I found that it took my skin a couple weeks to get used to it. So when I first started using, it actually kind of made my skin MUCH worse for a couple weeks (I've heard this is normal). If you can ride that out, you skin will stop freaking out and start to get lovely. Also, I wash my brush head with some baby shampoo before each use. Didn't like the idea of putting dirty brush-ness on my face.. Before I did that, my skin was breaking out. After I started washing the brush, much fewer break-outs. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!

  6. Little apartments are always the best. I can't believe you live near such a wonderful little boutique. If only I lived in Sydney I would be there in a heartbeat wasting my bank balance away.
