OOTD | Election 2014


"All we have is our vote. But it's powerful."
- Adam McKay

Yesterday it was the 121st anniversary of women getting voting rights in New Zealand. We were the first country in the world to achieve this, and our great-great-grandmother was very involved in campaigning for this. Today is also election day here in New Zealand, and though many people don't end up voting, it's something we strongly believe everyone should do. So today we thought we would do a 'outfit of the day' on what we wore to vote! 

top + skort c/o boohoo
shoes - Hannahs
jacket c/o Choies
lips - Me Now Generation

shirt - glassons
skirt c/o The Warehouse
shoes c/o boohoo
hat c/o Choies
hunger games necklace - Amazon

So if you're in New Zealand and haven't voted yet, get on it! Voting will still be open till 7pm :)

Filming Day OOTD: Leather Jackets and Metallic Heels


"You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want."
- S. E. Hilton

Often I find it pretty awkward taking outfit photos. This feeling, in addition to having no idea what to do with myself, is then translated into body language and awkward photos. Luckily Ellen has gotten used to this and has a few go to commands which help get the shot, but on this day I was feeling particularly posey. Something just clicked and this is the result. 

jeans - Esprit
leather jacket - Just Jeans
shirt - glassons
shoes c/o boohoo
necklace - antique

We took these photos on Saturday after a bumper day of all things blogging & youtube. The youtuber OOTD is already up and a GRWM is currently being edited for this weekends video! So subscribe to our channel to see that as soon as it goes up :)
