A #LadyLike Night with ELLE x H&M

Last night I attended the #LadyLike Night hosted by ELLE Australia in collaboration with H&M for a night dedicated to discussing careers, success, fashion, personal style and what it means to be #LadyLike! It was such an incredibly empowering event with a panel full of inspiring, determined and genuine women. Editor-in-chief of ELLE Australia Justine Cullen hosted the event, with the panel including cake creative Katherine Sabbath, Lucy Feagins of The Design Files, H&M sport ambassador Amanda Bisk and Margaret Zhang of Shine By Three! I tried to soak up everything these women were saying, but I also wrote down a few of the quotes that really suck with me, took some snaps of the night and got to meet, talk to and get a photo with one of my biggest blogging inspirations! I hope you enjoy this post and if you do, please give it a “like” so I know, and lets get on with the #LadyLike Night!

10 Blogging Questions To Ask Yourself Before Hitting Publish

Creating a blog post takes time, effort, passion and the rest. It’s always so rewarding seeing the end result up on your page and having people come and enjoy it for all its worth. What majorly sucks though is hitting ‘publish’, only to scurry back to the inner workings of a post because you forgot some tedious, yet important, housekeeping. This has happened to me one too many times, but it was only when writing the Publishing + Final Touches part in “My Blog Post Creation Process” post that I realised I have quite a long, and helpful, mental checklist! I was tempted to go way more in depth in that post about these questions, but held back as I knew I could dedicate an entire post to it! While they’re pretty self explanatory, I thought these questions could help other bloggers or point out something they could include in their posts before sending their work off into the world. I’m always on the hunt to improve my blog and I take advice from everywhere, so I hope you find this post helpful! If you do, please give it a “like” so I know, and let’s crack with this checklist!

The Perfect Palette Tag

Ah, the Perfect Palette Tag. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is one of the original makeup tags. Search it on YouTube and all the main beauty bloggers did this 3 years ago. However, it is still my favourite tag to circulate the beauty community as eyeshadow palettes are my – and many others – favourite part of makeup! I thought now would be the perfect time to do this tag as I’m finally in a really good place with my palette collection. There finally isn’t a palette I’m lusting after, anxiously waiting to be released or indecisively debating over – hopefully this feeling lasts for as long as possible to save my bank account some pain! Below I’ve answered the hard hitting beauty questions, such as which palette I think has the best packaging, which one was my biggest regret, and which I’d take with me to a desert island!

PARIS FASHION WEEK: Zuhair Murad

From the bustling streets of Milan to the city of love, I’m back with the second instalment of my Fashion Week series! Zuhair Murad is hands down one of my favourite designers of all time as I find his works so inspiring and contemporary, yet traditional and timeless. As I was looking through his Fall/Winter 2016/17 collection for this post, I came across his Spring/Summer 2017 collection and just knew this had to be a double feature. Here’s a run down of the theme of both collections plus my favourite looks straight from the runway.

My Blog Post Creation Process

Just like everything in my life, when it comes to producing each of my blog posts, I’m a sucker for a strict routine. Since I go through the same process each time before hitting publish on a post, I thought it’d be interesting to share that routine here on my blog! I always find these sorts of posts fascinating to read when done by other bloggers as everyone works in a slightly different way, but the end result is always something special.
