My Statement Red Dress : OOTD

My brain is currently awash with information arround intellectuall properpty laws and the theories of public relations and I feel like it's the only thing I can write about presently. I have been in an essay writing coma this past week, hence the lack of blog posts. Tara and I are both super sorry about that, but I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel with the impending easter break. For now I managed to dive into the archives of our hardrive and find these outfit photos that never made it onto the blog. This outfit features my favourite red dress. If you are a regular reader of our blog you will recognise this bad boy.

Study Wear

Since we started back at University we have probably been wearing casual lounge wear and pyjamas much more than the put together looks that usual grace this blog. We have both gotten pretty busy with uni work this week and didn't manage to get a video together (for the first time since we started uploading weekly) and didn't have any blog photos in reserve. So we quickly took these photos to share an actual casual study day OOTD.

OOTD | Casual Uni Days w/ Tara & Ellen

We have both been back at university for three weeks now and are digging back into our wardrobe for our favourite 'uni day' outfits. Even though we havent been back for very long, we are already bombarded with assignments, or in Tara's case, a thesis (I know, that smarticle particle). This afternoon we managed to snap some quick outfit photos of what we wore to class today.

HUGE BEAUTY HAUL + REVIEWS - Loreal, Clarins, Maybelline + more!

This weeks video is a HUGE beauty haul we have put together in collaboration with Farmers. Farmers is celebrating Beauty Week from the 17th to the 22nd of March. There are tonnes of amazing deals going on in store, and you can also win a years worth of skincare, fragrance and foundation by heading over to their Instagram and Twitter and using the hashtag #FounditatFarmers.

We went for a little shopping spree at Farmers and we were also lucky enough to receive a huge beauty box of goodies. We love making haul videos and thought this would be a great way to showcase some of the great new beauty items out and share a mini review on each one.

This post was made possible thanks to Farmers and nzgirl. All the items featured in this video were gifted, but we hand-picked many of them ourselves and genuinely love shopping at farmers. Learn more about #officialblogger here :)
