Hip, hip hooray; we turned ONE today!!

A year ago, I woke up and decided to head to my local party store, grab a bunch of balloons, snap a photo in front of my garage door (spot any similarities?) and revive my on-off relationship with Blogger. I never would have imagined that the past twelve months would have been as amazing as they have , and I have every single one of you to thank for it! Thank you all for your love, support and encouragement - to this day, it still boggles my mind that there are people out there who would care to be a part of my little world and share this journey with me! What started out as a casual weekend hobby has become one of my greatest loves, and I'm so grateful to have gotten to know so many of you along the way.

At the end of the day, I'm just your regular 21 year old, heading out into the world with big dreams and my fair share of awkward moments. #keepingitreal
I'm so excited to take you with me on the rest of this journey; so here's to many more midweek musings, outfit posts and food photos!

Now on to the winners of my #chicachiaturns1 giveaway....

Congratulations Jennifer Cheung, Jenny Copping and Kimi Pellosis!

I'll be in touch with you ladies over the next few days, and those gift boxes will be making their way over very soon! :)

Sending you lots and lots of love.
Have a fab week, everyone!

PS: Thank you THE PRESS SITE for dressing me & Nikki for this crazy amazing birthday cake!!

Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of dropping by eQUIP and BOOHOO's gorgeous SS14/15 showings and got way too excited for my own good. I fell in love with so many new pieces - from totes and wristwear to #THEBOOHOOEDIT's floaty kaftans, basic striped tees and reinvented denim cutoffs - and can't wait to see them drop in the coming weeks!

Thank you Tailor Maid for having me, and for one of the yummiest fruit juice concoctions I've ever had ;)

This morning, I woke up and realised there are only 72 days 'til Christmas. 
Say whaaaat?!

Summer is well and truly on its way and we've definitely been feeling the heat in Sydney the past few weeks. These BONDS pieces sure do bring that beachy summer vibe and I'm looking forward to lounging in these comfy soft jersey tees day and night! 

I headed to Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel with two of my girlfriends last week - and gurrrl, that seafood...
If you live in Sydney and you haven't already been, you need to get it on your summer to-do list and get down there. 
And in case I haven't convinced you enough already --

So as promised, I have an exciting announcement to make...

On the 28th of October, this little blog of mine is turning ONE!

Looking back on the past year, I'm just so blown away by the love and support all of you have shown me in some way or another; and I'd like to say a very big THANK YOU and celebrate this milestone with a massive international giveaway!

I'll be giving away THREE prize boxes - each filled to the brim with a selection of things I have personally handpicked for you from 8-10 of my favourite brands! Most of these items that I have selected are things I already have, use and love, and would love for you to enjoy as well. From adorable homeware items, to summer essentials, jewellery and even stationery - trust me when I say you definitely don't want to miss this one!

In the lead up to picking these THREE WINNERS, I'll be snapping a couple of cheeky photos, so be sure to keep an eye out on Instagram and Facebook to get a few sneak peaks of what could be coming your way ;)

Sometimes you just need to find your biggest oversized tee, get that topknot on, and go pose against graffiti walls.

My first slogan tee ever and I can already tell it's going to be one of my summer staples.
It's such a great feeling getting your hands on a piece you know you can throw on and feel good in pretty much any day. Now I've got something to turn to when I'm in that awkward place of needing to duck to the shops, not being bothered to get dressed, but not wanting to look like I rolled out of bed at three in the afternoon.

In other news, there's something really exciting happening in the next week or so, and trust me when I say you do not want to miss out on this one! Keep your eyes peeled and watch this space!

Go make some dreams happen, you champions.
