We have our latest youtube video to share with you guys today (I know, try and contain that excitement). This week we decided to do something fun with our nails. Nail art can be tricky and often we find ourselves leaving it to the 'professionals' ,resulting in a significant money drain. But we've got you sorted with these awesome newspaper nails. They are quick and easy and will get the attention of all your friends. Check out our video below to see how you can get either Tara's matte look, or Ellen's shiny look.

The Penny Boarding Continues


"Cute accessories always help bring out an outfit and pull it all together."
- Ciara 

With winter looming I decided I better squeeze in some last few penny board adventures. Tara and I got our penny boards just before the beginning of last summer and I must say, they are worth every penny (hehehe see what I did there guys?). Not only has my penny gotten me out exercising, it makes the perfect accessory to any outfit. Yes I just referred to a skateboard as an accessory, I am a girl, deal with it.

It's hard to believe these photos were taken in between rain showers. Auckland, you have the weirdest weather patterns. But I will take any moment of sunshine I can get, no matter how brief. Winter is coming...

Style to survive long periods in air-condition lectures...


"Style is everything. It helps you get up in the morning. It helps you get down the stairs. It's a way of life. " - Diana Vreeland

Figuring out what to wear each day to uni gets complicated more by the fact that sometimes the class rooms have particularly cold air conditioning compared to the temperatures outside. This outfit was for a day I had six hours of consecutive lectures in particularly chilly class room, so comfort and adaptability to temperatures was paramount. My basic formula for days like this is cotton pants/leggings (comfort + warmth), short sleeved shirt (cool for outside), jacket/cardigan (warmth),  and bag (to carry all sorts of academic stuff, but more importantly food). 

tote bag - Kikki K
pants - Cotton On
Jacket c/o ChoiesTkikkiy
shoes - baby blue converse
watch - May28th

That day at uni went surprisingly fast, and wasn't at all like I was dreading. Our course coordinator even went to the cafe and bought us all coffee! One of the perks of being part of a small course I guess!

Hope everyone is enjoying the Easter holidays and making the most of the long weekend! I've been productive in bloggy things, but tomorrow will have to have an assignment focus!
