Sweet nine to five customs


I’m running out of clothes, so I’d thought I’d do this post in my pjs. It’s pretty much everyone’s uniform, right? No makeup. Bed hair. Pjs. 6:15am.

My inpromtive photo shoot this morning sure was inpromtive, to say the least. I woke at the crack of dawn and on this particular morning the sun shone in to my room in a way only to be imagined, I couldn’t help myself I had to pull my camera out and take photos on this beautifully aesthetically pleasing morning (too much? Maybe, probably). I must say it was quite a pleasant way to spend my morning.

This morning was a far cry from my normal mornings.

I have always loved playing with light in my photos and this morning was no different. I pondered weather or not I should post this but screw it, I’m going to do It anyway. YOLO, right? I’m sorry I said that, I promise it won’t happen again. The glowing sun creates a blanket of happiness over everything, adding an extra bounce in my step.

It was one of those rare morning when life felt like it was something out of a story book, it smelt as if there was pancakes waiting for me in the kitchen but unfortunately there wasn’t. Moments like this, make going to bed early and waking up early completely worth it.

When I fell asleep on Monday I did not think that I would wake up to the brightest sun shining in to my room and that I would take the opportunity to do a impromivte photo shoot.

Yet here we are.

Sweet nine to five customs. Normality. Quite recently I’ve steered away from wants considered to be normality, you know a boring nine to five desk job. I don’t even have a job let alone a nine to five desk job. I still have to finish school. But that being said I do plan on doing something fun with life, screw the system kinda thing.

Yeah, that sounds about right.

My shirt has this boyish vibe to it, well that’s because it is a men’s shirt. Apart from that my lack of clothing was kinda freeing. I don’t have a boyfriend who’s shirts I can steal, I got this one on sell so I’m really not complaining one bit.

So Amy, what have you been doing lately? Funny you ask that because I’ve been doing literally nothing although I plan on changing that.

School has put me in a complete runt. Writers block I suppose you could call it, nothing I’ve written has seemed to interest me enough to post or maybe I’m just shit at writing. Hoping its not the later of the two.

Although it’s now the holidays I still find myself in a bit of “lack of inspiration runt” if that’s what you what to call it and the harder I seem to look for things to write about the bigger a hole I seem to dig myself in to. I did find one thing to help me attempt to get out of this hole and that was reading other people’s blogs and that’s how I found myself here in the middle of a cold day sitting on my bed. Exciting, I know.

This first week of my spring school holidays has been less then eventful. To top it all off the weathers bad. Thanks Melbourne, thanks a lot.

No matter how hard I try I can’t seem to force my sister to go out with me, maybe that’s because we’re both very stubborn Leo’s.

Astrology as always kinda bluffed me, like how on earth does every Leo or Aries have the same day. But I do see how some of the personality traits are most definite in people. In saying that I do sometimes read my horoscope only to forget about it the next day.

Ok, that was way off topic.

I gotta learn to stay on topic more.

I’ll talk to you guys soon, have a wonderful day.

Wearing: Shirt from Factorie(similar here), jeans from Factorie, shoes from converse, sunglasses from Cotton On

I searched far and wide to find me some boyfriend jeans and ended up coming home with gurlfriend jeans (or more formal known as girlfriend jeans), if anyone would like to inform me of the difference that would be most appreciated.

Look here’s the thing, you’ve probably already seen this pictures on my Instagram this because shit has hit the fans and I didn’t have photos ready for this blog post so I recycling some from a few weeks ago. Don’t hate me for it. The school holidays are fast approaching and I’ll have some new content ready for you then. I’ll speak to you soon, have a good one. xxx

My New Kicks

Shoes from Converse

Needed some major shopping therapy last week. What’s new? Nothing. The result? Some new kicks. Shoes. They are a pretty important part of well almost everyone’s lives and if some one were to ask me if I had to chose between clothes and shoes, I would most definitely pick shoes over clothes any day. In saying that, don’t surprised if you see me running down the street butt naked in nothing but a brand new pair of kicks.

I’ve wanted these shoes for sometime now, so to be able to call a pair of these classic neighbourhood kicks my own is pretty astonishing in my books. They are a classic. Considering I don’t have a stable income because of the absence of a job in my life, I would say that getting shoes that match almost all of clothes is kinda important. They are a safe choice but I can’t complain about them.

I decided that I simply couldn’t go through my entire teenage years and not own a pair on converse. Yeasterday morning when I put them on I felt on top of world and spent all day bouncing around, in my new shoes of course.

If you’re reading this, it’s a sign that you need to buy new shoes. I’m kidding.
Lots of love,

It’s only been a week since I last talked to you guys but it feels like a whole lot more then that. Oh well, anyway this week I’m bring to you an outfit post.
I really struggled to put together the outfit mostly because you guys are seen almost my entire wordobe. That’s right- top to bottom you’ve seen it all. I’m in middle of saving for a new camera and without a stable income finding money to spend on clothes is (almost) impossible. Talk about first world problems, am I right.
At this point in my life I can now officially say I am serial outfit repeater and I am not ashamed. I hope you all have a great week, one that does include outfit repeating. I’ll speak to you soon.

Dealing With Pimples


Ahh, the ups and downs of teenage skin. Perfect skin one day, pimples the next. You never know what may be there to surprise you on the awaking of what you thought was a perfect day. In collaboration with Emma, you can check out her blog here. We’ve put together two posts in relation to winter, be sure to check her out for winter fashion. Here are some tips and tricks on what to do if you wake up with a little nasty friend on your face.

A nasty pimple could ruin your confidence but never fear because if you wrap a ice cube in paper towel then hold it on the pimple for around 5-10 minutes then repeat this roughly 3 times. The pimple should be come smaller and less noticeable.

Drink lots of water. I know who’ve hread to planty of times but it’s absolutely true. Drink 2 litres of water a day and any pimples should decrease in size, if not disappear.

Washing your face is extremely as it helps to get rid of any dirt that may be hiding in your pores. Just be sure to get a face wash that matching your skin type of you could be doing more harm then good. Also put on some get moisturiser after washing your face.

Lastly, don’t touch your pimples. I know how hard this can be but it so important to leave them alone. The more you touch them the more you irritate them and more dirt will clog your pores.

Having pimples is just apart of growing up and to be honest everyone has had a pimple before in their life time. Don’t stress yourself out to much. Also be sure to check out Emmas winter fashion tips and I’ll speak to you soon. Bye.

Sweater from Surpé (similar here), jeans from Jay Jays (similar here)
I officially own a sweater, granted this is my only sweater but you gotta understand money is unlikely phenomenon  when your life is lacking a job or any source of income really. You’ve probably seen this gorgeous number before (or maybe you haven’t) in my June Favourites post.

Also can we please just take a moment to appreciate the lighting in these photos, I love taking photos in the morning because the sun shines into my room and it’s just so beautiful, absolutely blissful. School has gone back for term three and that’s absolutely not blissful.

A short lil’ post this week, have an awesome week and I’ll speak to you guys soon. xxx

Sounds of Sunday 01

Sunday. The day before school (or work) takes over again. The last day of freedom for the weekend, or the best day to sleep in. The day to wake up to the smell of pancakes filling your nostrils. The day to visit early morning markets and to have bunch with only the closet of friends. A good day for coffee and a new book. This is what Sunday sounds like to me, a collection of some of my most favourite songs.

‘Sounds of Sunday’ is going to be a lil’ series on my blog, I hope you enjoy it.

Overalls from Cotton On (similar here), shirt form Surpé (similar here), shoes from Cotton on

Well the second week of the holidays has began and is almost over. My free days are becoming sparse but today I decided to centre my inner child again, granted I was a child not that long ago. For some reason, which to be quite frank is beyond me I brought this pair overalls, which might have been overpriced considering this is probably about the second time I’ve worn them in the past 6 months. Sorry not sorry, but I am sorry to my bank account.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking “Amy, Melbourne’s weather is way to cold for you to be wearing overalls.” In hindsight, I was actually freezing my butt off. In other news I dropped my favourite eyebrow palette – not happy- and I also managed to lose my favourite eyebrow brush- really not happy- but telling my first world problems on the Internet is beneficial to just about no one.

So what we have learn’t form this post; well for starters maybe I should talk more about my outfit and less about my problems, and maybe I shouldn’t waste my money on overpriced overalls. Also don’t wear your overpriced overalls of what could of possibly been I coldest day ever. I’m glad we sorted that out, until next time have a good (and safe) week.
