How to Stay Inspired - Where we Find our Fashion Inspiration

Sometimes it's easy to get in a rut fashion wise or find yourself lacking in inspiration. To get past this fashion block, we have a few go to places to get our inspiration flowing again. 

1. Fashion sites
The internet is full of thousands of websites packed with fashion content to inspire you. Some of our favourites at the moment are Elle and The Iconic. They are great at keeping you up to date with fashion news and the latest trends. A few others we would recommend is InStyleViva and FQ

2. People watching
Sometimes all you need to do to find some inspiration is go outside and simply observe. Whether it's at the beach, a mall or a restaurant, going out and seeing what other people are wearing is a great way to get ideas. 

3. Tv shows
Gossip Girl will forever be one of our favourite TV shows because of the amazing fashion. But TV shows in general always have great outfits and analysing a certain characters look can definitely be a great way to get out of a rut. 

4. Instagram
Every day we love to scroll through this social media platform and it's a constant source of great fashion. Some of Tara's favourites are Jasmine DowlingBrittany Bathgate, and Olivia Purvis  and Ellen loves In The Frow and kiwi girl Ash Owens.

5. Pinterest
This site is a rabbit hole of inspiration and you can easily find yourselves spending hours on it. Once you've looked at a few things, it begins to suggest related pins you might like making it super easy to come across great stuff.

How to Style Puffer Jackets

This weekend I went to Dunedin and while the locals might have been sporting jandals and shorts, I wasn't quite used to the chilly weather. My gold puffer jacket became my uniform for the trip and certainly kept me cosy. But as much as I love this jacket, sometimes when I put it on I feel like a bit of a marshmallow. My key styling tip for these jackets, because they can be quite oversized, is to keep the rest of your outfit slim. I opted for a black roll neck underneath, and my favourite pair of skinny jeans. A good pair of tight jeans definitely helps offset those marshmallow feelings.

Jacket - Thrifted // Jeans - Esprit // Shoes - Ecco // Necklace - Antique // Sunglasses - Dolce & Gabbana // Bag - Bali

How to curl straight & thin hair

Getting big bouncy waves when you've got straight limp hair can be a real hassle. I've spent many years trying to master it and you'll have to forgive me for my boasting but I think I've finally cracked it. 

My first tip would be to pin your curls to your head and let them cool down. Yes it's time consuming but trust me it's worth the wait. If you let hot curls go, they will fall out a lot faster compared to if you keep them curled and pinned till they cool. 

Of course the next important element is having the right tools. I've tried numerous wands and tongs but the ghd soft curl tong is my new best friend. If you've got long thin hair like me then the fat wide barrel is a must.

Finally I would say never brush your curls out with a hairbrush if your hair is thin. Just tossle them with your fingers and throw your head back and forth a bit before locking it in with some hair spray.

A few weeks ago I filmed this Glam date night get ready with me video featuring my new 'do if you want to see the whole process in action!

Have a look around my room | Interview on Urbn Wild

This week I thought I'd share a few shots of my bedroom in Australia that I took for my "At Home With" interview for Britney's blog UrbnWild.

I had done a vlog showing constructing furniture and initially setting up my new room but theres been a couple of adjustments and the addition of a book shelf! This was to add some more storage as I was finding it hard to keep everything tidy and organised when it was all sqaushed into the little storage I already had.

If you'd like to read the interview you can find it here :)
