Shoes are such an easy way to complete or enhance an outfit. Over the past 12 months I’ve built up a staple set of footwear that I know I’ll be able to rely on and reuse over the next several years!

Blogger Series: Secret Blogger’s Business eCourse

September 16, 2014

Earlier this year I decided it was time to take my blog learning to a new level and after being recommended this course by Smaggle I thought it was worth giving it a go!

The Secret Blogger’s Business eCourse is written and run by Kate McKibbin who has over 7 years of blogging experience under her belt. What really sold me is after doing some research into Kate is that not only has she got her own blog and business but she also employs a number of stuff. I thought if she’s gotten to the point of success where she can hire people, I want that. Continue Reading…

Street Style {Plus Size Outfit}

September 15, 2014

I’ve been adding a street edge to my personal outfits of late, lots of sneakers and shiny pants!

In particular I bought a new pair of sneakers from Wittner and I’m in LOVE! They’re white, cream and delicious. The only thing is I’m terrified of marking them so I’ve used a water protectant spray on them ever second day (call me crazy).

I also picked up some wet look jeans from City Chic and this super on trend white blazer, teamed with my ASOS tee I was feeling pretty stylish. The day I wore this I was having lunch with a photographer friend so wrangled her to take my picture, she’s done an amazing job I now feel I need to up the anti on my photography skills!

The Beauty of Photography

September 13, 2014

I was given a DSLR for my birthday last year (cheers Dad!). However I never really learnt how to use it. I’d fumble around and stick to the auto settings rather than risk going to manual and stuffing it up.

I find photography is such a fun and creative outlet, I remember studying at high school and learning how to develop negatives and spending hours in a darkroom then moving onto digital.

Since smart phones I’ve become a lot more interested in the creative side of photography where you can change an image you’ve already taken through things like Lightroom or Photoshop. Continue Reading…

I’ve talked enough about how I was recently on the Gold Coast for ProBlogger. What I may not have mentioned was that my sister lives there and I wrangled her Gen Y photo taking skills to take some outfit photos for me.

While I appreciate every time the Pool Boy helps me out and takes photos there’s something about a 20 year old who lives her life through Instagram that takes a better and more candid photos. Continue Reading…

Plus Size Active Wear {Kmart}

September 7, 2014

Lately I’ve noticed that Kmart have really been lifting their game in the homewares and furniture area. After a recent expedition there for new bedside tables I decided to checkout the women’s wear.

To be honest I’m usually always disappointed when I check out the range at Kmart. The everyday clothes hadn’t changed much, oversized t-shirts with horrible prints and straight leg jeans with no shape. Continue Reading…

ProBlogger 2014 Conference Opening

I’m still not home, but I can’t help but put this post together straight away.

This year was my first trip to the ProBlogger conference and it was INSPIRING. I met so many bloggers at so many different stages in their blogging journey that it made me feel a lot better about where my little blog is at.

While I learnt a lot of things from the technical side to the planning side to the inspiration side, I have to admit I’m still feeling a little lost and I need your help. Continue Reading…

Blogger Series: Make Money Blogging Seminar {Giveaway – 2 tickets}

August 27, 2014

While blogging can be a nice hobby, there’s also a career in it. All you need to do is tap into the different ways you can start to earn a side income and you can start developing it into a full time career.

The downside of living in Canberra is that most blogging seminars or conferences are never held here. To learn more about blogging beyond google we need to invest in conference fees, flights, accommodation and more. It can start to stack up, for example travelling to the Gold Coast for ProBlogger is costing me around $1,500 (not including the shopping I’ll probably do whilst there). Continue Reading…

An important tip for those blogging is to plan! Being organised and setting yourself goals, like when you’ll post, what you’ll post about etc helps you get into a rhythm of blogging.
