Sportsgirl skirts...

You know how some seasons every item of clothing you see in a store screams out to you? Well this Spring/Summer, that has happened to me, especially when I walk through the doors of Sportsgirl.
Long flowing maxi and midi skirts are the prominent trend this season, and this suits me down to the ground! I love the slightly retro vibe of a longer skirt, and it also makes me feel a lot more comfortable, knowing that I can move around and not show everyone my underwear!

The first skirt is a floral full midi skirt from Sportsgirl (similar here).  Even though it initially looks quite dressy, it can be dressed up and dressed down. Sometimes I pair it with a black long-sleeved top, a pretty belt, a red lip and even some heels.  Other times I throw on a slogan tee (from Myer), and some Summery ballet flats.

This next skirt, is the 'Sporty Pleated Midi Skirt' from Sportsgirl (here).  Every time I walked past the shop window it called to me, and eventually I decided I couldn't live without it! It has an elastic waist, so it's incredibly comfortable to wear. It's cut so that it has a diagonal hem. Again, you can dress it up or down, depending on where you're going. And because it is slightly out of the norm, it definitely gets some attention! When I wore this, I received so many compliments! 

What is your favourite trend for the season? Are there any other skirts I need to buy? (Because I clearly don't have enough!

The Christmas List...

Christmas is a time for giving to others, spending time with loved ones, singing carols all day every day and thinking about the deeper meanings of the holiday.  Receiving gifts is just an added bonus of this exciting time of year... That being said, today's post is a list of things I would love to have wrapped up under the tree for me!

  1. The Complete Set from Zoeva. - Every blogger on the planet wants the rose gold Zoeva brush set, but when I was browsing the Luxola website I stumbled upon this set that has almost double the brushes and is cheaper too! It's not like I need more brushes, but these ones are lovely. 

2. Crosley Executive Turntable - Black (CR6019A-BK) - A record player has been on my wishlist for some time now, and this one from Crosley has had amazing reviews! Perfect for the music lover who likes to keep things authentic.

3. Records to play on the record player! - A lot of the bands I listen to produce their albums on vinyl as well as cds etc., so I think I may need some of them, as well as some old school op-shop finds too!

4. Bobbi Brown Art Stick. -  I saw Zoella wearing one of these in a vlog months ago, and since then I've been dreaming about them! As a lipstick addict, I feel that one of these would be a lovely addition to my collection.

5. Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace, Greta or Natalie or Charlotte... or most of them. - These have been talked about a lot in the beauty community lately, and with the amount of shades in the range, there is definitely one, or many for every person! 

6. Some yoga/sport pants that aren't see-through. - I have a constant struggle when shopping for exercise clothing... It's got to be comfortable and practical, but also not super expensive, because I don't exercise THAT much. 

So I think that is enough wanting for one post. I hope it might give you some inspiration.
What's on your Christmas list this year?
