Over the last week I went on a small road trip with my mum and dad. They treated me to the road trip and it was so nice to spend time with them. I have a few outfits that I like to wear when travelling – this is my favourite because it is easy to wear and doesn’t take up much room in my bag (I like to travel with a small amount of clothes).
I recently showed this item on my post about my favourite beauty products.
It is a great concealer that matches my skin tone well and is easy to blend in.
I always build it up – particularly under my eyes – so that I don’t get a cakey look from it.
Yesterday my Opa held his 80th birthday party. I had a lovely time.
I took a long time deciding what to wear. I was going to wear one of my 1960s skirts and a lacy top but then I went shopping at Smoove in Auckland.
I bought 2 lovely dresses.
The one I chose to wear was black with flowers. I also wore my floral stockings and 1940s high heels.
I love how the dress seems so delicate. I think the floral pattern helps with that!
I can’t wait to show you the other dress I got.
If you haven’t been to Smoove yet and you live in Auckland, you should definitely go. It is a great shop and the people are really lovely in there. They have a selection of clothing – from Vintage reworked to brand new clothes. They have really awesome skirts with cool patterns of skylines etc.

Over the last year I have found a few beauty products that I really love. They are products that suit my skin type and colour.
A favourite brand of mine is Rimmel. It’s not overly expensive but it is better than dollar shop makeup products.
I’m such a poser. Honestly. Normally for OOTD posts I try not to pose to much. But I really like taking silly photos and these ones in this post actually turned out pretty well.
Unfortunately my phone is starting to run out of space and I have to keep deleting photos. I guess this means I will have to save all my photos on a USB so I can have a clear phone again!
Yesterday (Friday) was my birthday. I’m 26 years old and getting closer to 30.
I had a lovely day. I met my brother for pie at the Federal Delicatessen in Auckland City. It is a New York style deli. The pie was delicious (we shared a taster plate – Toffee and Banana, Cheesecake, Pumpkin and Lemon Meringue).
I have frequented a lot of vintage shops whilst living in the UK.
Especially ones in London. There are so many and they range from cheap to very expensive.
I have managed to find quite a few nice items while browsing their shelves. Sometimes I buy and sometimes I don’t. So this list will be based off atmosphere and browseability (which may or may not be a word).
