Sunday Blues

Wearing: Denim dress via glue, boater hat purchased from Connie, Lauren Conrad wedges via Kohls

It's official, winter is over and the blue skies and sunny days have not disappointed us sydneysiders. I've been putting away my coats and jumpers and bringing out my dresses, flowy skirts and hats to play. After three months of neglect, pushed to one side of the closet, nothing feels better than light weight materials, floral and pastel colour schemes paired with sandals and open toe heels and floppy hats to boater hats. Speaking of neglect, my poor blog! Something I need to be a lot more devoted towards. However in my absence I have been working non-stop, saving half my earnings and extending my wardrobe with the other half. I'm excited to work my new clothing items with the old and see what outfit combinations I can put together. I've also been keeping to my word, eating a lot more healthier and exercising which has resulted in a 4kg loss (woohoo!). Here is a quick outfit post, a sunday lunch with my family, enjoying the gorgeous view from my rooftop!

Warm and Toasty

Wearing: faux fur vest by anarchy street, Mustard blouse via Bondi Markets , Sportsgirl body con skirt, White stockings and Spiked bracelet from Ebay, Brown boots from Maxs Shoes

Just a quick outfit post before I headed out the door (a week ago) ahh i'm so lazy! I have so many posts to do but haven't gotten around to uploading photos yet. This lazyness ends today I guarantee it. Considering my guarantee's arn't, well always truthful i'm going to take an oath here on my blog so whoever reads this is my witness... I Azar, promise to stop being lazy and start to do all the things on my "to do list". Just to include the top of my list (maybe writing it will help me to do it?)
1. Get a job
2. Blog more
3. Exercise (lose weight)
4. Moisturise daily
5. Figure out a better organising system for my overflowing closet.
6. Figure out what uni degree I want to change too, look into journalism.

I could probably be here all day writing what I need to do but these were the first 6 that came to my head and I decided to stop at 6 not to bore you all. If anyone has any motivational/organisational skills, I'd love to hear them!

Napoleon Perdis- Sale and Review

A few weekends ago I went to the Napoleon Perdis Sale in Alexandria which was held in their huge make -up school. I wasn't it expecting it to be that great because Napoleon Perdis isn't the cheapest brand and I recently lost my job so I need to be very picky with the things I buy. To my surprise, I was really pleased, the prices were crazy cheap and unlike other big sales they had plenty of stock. Here is some photos of some of things I bought, I've used most of them already and am really happy with the turnout.

 The bag they gave me will definitely be re-used, it's my favourite bag I've received from a shop.
The little bottles are eye primer, I bought 3 of them for $1 each and then they ended up giving me a lot of free samples. I've got so many now I don't need to buy a larger bottle.
 I really needed some new primer, the one I was using wasn't very good and didn't seem to make my makeup last very long. This set came with two, a ordinary primer which is the white/cream colour as well as a bronzing primer. I've been using the white one and I really like it, it sets my foundation well and I've definitely noticed my make-up lasting for longer. Due to it being winter and my skin being white, I haven't used the other one yet but I really like the colour and will definitely be using it in the summer once I get a nice tan. This set cost a cheap $6, you can't ask for better then that!
 I picked up 4 eyeshadow's which were selling for $5 each. I didn't have any good read and yellow eye shadows so I picked those 2 colours up. The blue and the green are very much pastel colours so I wanted to buy those to fit with my new favourite pastel trend. They are very pigmented and are all really nice colours so these were great buys. con
This toner was only $5. I've been using it after cleansing and really like the fresh feel of it on my face. Its not heavy on my skin and doesn't have that strong chemical like scent which I have noticed that some toners have.
I also purchased the patrol palette for $8. Both the brushes were missing which is why I got free samples. I love how the bottom slips out, making it double decker palette so it takes up much less space. Having different lip colours, eye shadows and a blush and bronzer all in a small confined palette with a mirror couldn't be more handy for 8 bucks.

Purple and Gold

Just a quick outfit post as I was running out the door. I picked up this dress from General Pants for about $60 which I am madly in love with. The print is what attracted it to me in the first place as well as the gold and black with the purple infusion. It's super comfy and I love that it's long sleeved. I spent at least 10 minutes looking for a belt to wear it with to synch in the waist and my belts seemed to have disappeared. I never had very many, for some reason I never buy belts even though they can make an outfit complete. I found this very old one I purchased from Supre and decided it would do. I'm in definite need of purchased new belts, I've been eyeing the Moschino belt for a while but haven't gotten around to buying it yet. Hopefully I will soon.

Anarchy Street

Nothing is better than getting a package delivered straight to your door, it feels like your getting a present excluding the fact that I paid for it, I still feel special and giddy inside. Anarchy Street was having a sale so I purchased 4 goodies from them. In the package they included this cute note, the fact that it was handwritten just made it even more personal! This is my first buy from them and I'm really happy with the things I bought, well definitely be purchasing from them again! The only bummer was the postage, I hate having to pay for postage when I could spend that money on more clothes ( I've got OCD with clothes as my mother says), it wasn't too bad though, $20 and it came in just over a week. I guess that's what happens when you don't reside in the US (just another of my million reasons to move there!!)

Check them out here:
Here is what I bought:

1. This faux fur vest. I have a black one and was looking for white one so as soon as I saw this I added it to my cart! It looks like a cream colour in the photo, probably because of the lighting but it's actually white.

2. Button up blouse. Polka dots, button up and green= $ CHA CHING. I saw this on their website a while ago and wanted it as soon as I set my eyes on it. The fact that it was on sale was a sign I had to buy it.

3. Pleather skirt. This was on my wishlist for a while, I've recently become obsessed with skirts so I know I needed to have a pleather one. It's not as shiny as it looks in the photo.

4. Goldy bronze ruffle blouse. Something attracted me to this blouse, I like the fact that you can wear it as a crop or full length thanks to the gathered waist band at the bottom. I also really liked the ruffle on the top, which gives it a 3rd dimension kind of look.

Quick outfit post

I picked up this amazing leather studded jacket on my trip to the US in this little boutique on melrose avenue (unfortunately I can't remember the name but it was probably my favourite shop that I visited while over there). Whenever I wear it I usually get comments on how awesome it is, it's definitely one of my most prized positions. I like how its edgy and punk and I can continue that look throughout the outfit or style it with something really girly like floral prints to contrast. I wore it when returning back to Australia on the plane, it was too heavy to fit in my overflowing luggage (yes the shopping in the US is even more amazing than everyone says it is).  I apologise for not taking a picture of the back of it or a close up so that you can see the studs I promise to do that for a future post!

Metallic silver/grey

Images from tumblr

At the moment I am loving clothing/accessories that are metallic silver/grey. Winter is approaching, quicker than expected and these metallic colours add a kick into winter outfits and are definitely a more exciting choice than black. Anything with sequins or studs is just an added bonus!

Chloe's Susanna Boot

These gorgeous ankle boots were part of Chloe's pre fall 2008 collection. You can't go wrong with these beauties, with the studded pattern, gold buckles and low heel, they are perfect for any occasion. Previously sold out, they have now returned and are being sold at Barneys, Saks and Nordstrom in red, black, white and green. These boots are now number one on my wish list and if they weren't so pricey ($1235) they would already be sitting in my cupboard.
