CRISP CANVAS



Just had to share these images of the ever exquisite Crystal Renn, providing me with serious beauty inspiration. I mean those brows, that skin… what dreams are made of, really.

RESET





It's been a pretty crazy couple of weeks and I've just gone back to uni this week. Surprisingly I'm actually really excited for this semester, getting back to the old grind has given me the structure that I craved during my break. I'm also in the process of doing a big cleanse/overhaul/refresh of everything in my life. Goodbye toxicity.

I'll be back on my blogging game soon, don't you worry.

WICKED WITCHERY


Witchery can do no wrong in my eyes at the moment, the label just keeps going from strength to strength with such a clear creative direction. With every season I find myself lusting after new pieces – and, of course, the latest Spring Summer drop is no different. There are so many pieces that fill in the gaps in my wardrobe, so many easy-to-wear separates and everything just looks so effortless.


This season’s campaign is fronted by none other than American beauty Cameron Russell. If you haven’t seen her TED Talk, click here. There’s so much more to her than just a pretty face and has some really incredible things to say about the fashion industry and ideas about beauty. Such an incredible and inspiring lady involved with an iconic Aussie brand, wholly encompassing what Witchery is all about: empowering women. They've absolutely nailed it in terms of the styling as well, I feel like I need all of these complete looks because they work together so well and so seamlessly.

Wishlisting: the bandeau, the crop and the bustier. Oh, and I cannot wait for the next drop so I can get my hands on those striped pants!!!

#EMILYTAKESHK




I can’t wrap my head around the fact that a little over a week ago I was still in the beautiful city of Hong Kong. My friends and I spent a good 15 days there and they truly were some of the best days of my life. Waking up in a foreign city, having a Michelin star dumpling place literally downstairs from our apartment and taking in everything that the city had to offer was unbelievable. And as much as I loved Lane Crawford – I could’ve perused those stores for hours on end – there is so much more to Hong Kong than the shopping.

The highlights of the trip were definitely visiting the Nan Lian Gardens and the Chi Lin Nunnery, trekking through to Sai Wan Village and of course visiting the Big Buddha at Lantau Island. Photos cannot do these places justice, at the Gardens I was in my own little wonderland of serenity and tranquillity and so freaking beautiful. The scenery on the trail through to Sai Wan from Sai Kung was insane and there was a little secluded beach with the clearest water amongst all the mountains. Lantau Island will always be one of my favourite places in the world, the cable car ride on the way up never disappoints and once you're on the island itself, you really have to pinch yourself because the view is truly breathtaking.

I will definitely be back in Hong Kong soon as it is one of my favourite cities and there is still so much I haven’t seen of it. But until then I’ll be playing tourist in my own city for what’s left of my uni holidays; going overseas has made me realise how I’ve never really seen Sydney and I would love to discover more of this beautiful city I call home.
