Exams are gone and the holidays are here!

I'm kicking it all off with a leisurely Monday morning in bed, writing up a to-do/eat list for this four-week holiday.
At the top of the agenda would have to be cleaning my post-exam mess of a room and scouting new locations for photoshoots!
PS: My fellow Sydneysiders, if you have any suggestions, please let me know!

I'm also really excited to get back into a bit of baking, because Kit-Kat-Cheesecake-Brownies are sounding preeetty amazing right now...

When you've found the perfect longline cardi, don't ever let it go.

I kid you not, I have been throwing this over just about anything and everything, and I ain't stopping yet! Sure, we could talk about how it's just the right length, texture and colour to go with a solid ninety-five percent of my winter wardrobe - but between you and me, I really just get a kick from feeling like someone out of a Marvel movie - long, billowing 'cape' and all...

May or may not have made corny superhero hand gestures running up the street to catch the bus yesterday. In my defence, I had just finished my first exam (huzzah!) and no one could've seen me in the 6pm darkness anyway. Hopefully.

It's been a good solid 12 months since I last donned a beanie, and I'm looking forward to getting back into them! This statement sweatshirt is also quickly becoming one of my favourite pull-over-and-run-out-the-door pieces - perfect for those early morning starts, I tell ya.

I'm so excited to share that CHICACHIA has been added to The Scoop List - a brand new blogger spotlight initiative by Erica Llorico! I'm so amazed by how quickly and creatively Erica has put this all together (you go, girl!) and am beyond honoured to be a part of it. Be sure to check it out and show her some love!

It's just me and my textbooks this wild Friday night. But study sessions really aren't so bad when you have a crazy pavlova to keep you going. Trust me, fellow Sydneysiders, you're gonna want to keep this lovely lady on your radar. Nikki, you are nothing short of amazing. Thank you for the perfect weekend treat!

Last week, I had the pleasure of sharing a little bit of my story and a few favourite handbag essentials with the two gorgeous babes behind Two Stories The Label. If you haven't already checked out their 'What's In My Bag' segment, you need to click on right now!

In other news, exam season is upon us and winter is well and truly setting in. I was hoping to do a couple of photoshoots over the long weekend, but alas, it was way too cold and rainy to set foot out of my toasty blanket cocoon. So here I am instead, curled up amidst a sprawl of paper that is this semester's collection of lecture notes.

So, my lovelies, please do bear with me. Come 4 o' clock on the 28th of June, I shall be a very happy camper and you will probably catch me documenting all types of post-exam shenanigans over on Instagram.
Until then, you know where to find me.

Winter is officially here, and as you can see, I'm fully embracing this seasonal change with a brand new coat!

I've been keeping an eye out for a blush pink coat for quite a while now - and when I came across this one on Missguided, I knew it had to be the one. Meanwhile, the love affair with fluffy knits continues with this cropped monochromatic number, which by the way, is just an absolute dream to wear.
A very, very grateful shoutout to the lovelies at Sweaty Betty PR for getting me all prepped for winter!

I met up with a few of my favourite blogger babes for a late brunch this morning, and it absolutely made my day! Chatting over coffee and way too many plates of French toast has definitely got to be one of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.
