Just a few favourites: Blogs and Magazines edition.

Like every other fashion obsessed human being, I have favourite magazines and blogs that are my ‘go to’ inspiration sites.

I could list the typical ones like Pinterest (which I love), but I thought I’d share with you my ‘bibles’.

  1. Vogue – of course I’d pick Vogue, it is quite literally the biggest and most popular magazine out there. When I look at things in Vogue, my first thought is ‘love that, but too expensive’. My second thought is how can I find something similar, but at a smaller price? When I lived in the UK, I’d frequent H&M, Zaram and last but not least, Primark. In NZ I go to places like Glassons, Just Jeans and H&M (thank fuck they finally brought H&M over).
  2. Fashion Quarterly – a magazine filled with amazing fashion. I don’t really need to say much more.
  3. WeWoreWhat – This is a great blog for fashion inspiration. I was going to choose my favourite outfit post, but there are just too many to choose from.
  4. Man Repeller – If you haven’t heard of Man Repeller where have you been? Feminists, relationships, lifestyle, fashion…Man Repeller writes about a variety of subjects – it’s one of those websites I have bookmarked on every single piece of technology I own. I just visited the website and refound this article from last year: Are You Happy?
  5. Zanita – I just love this blog. No explanation needed, but I’ll give one anyway! Fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I love reading lifestyle articles too 🙂


I was going to leave this at 5, but then I remembered about The Sensible Stylista.

All these blogs and mags get me so excited about fashion 😀


All of these blogs and magazines are ones I look at a lot for fashion, lifestyle and beauty inspiration.

The Fashionista Award – Nomination

20140625-095012-35412972.jpgSo, I woke up this morning to the most amazing comment from Nessa of thatchicfashionblog.

She has nominated me for the Fashionista Award, for which I’m incredibly thankful.  It’s pretty exciting to be nominated for these awards.  It is such a great way to find new blogs and also let others know about blogs that you like!

To begin with I will answer these ten questions:

1) What motivated you to start blogging?

I started blogging back in 2013 because I wanted to share my love of fashion with the world.  However after a long break without blogging I came back and decided to restart my blog.  I love to blog because, like I said before, it gets my thoughts, feelings and love towards fashion out into the world.
2) Favorite movies?

I LOVE ‘Love, Actually’.  I’ve watched it so many times and I still find it funny.  I also love ‘Bridesmaids’.
3) What is your dream career?

My dream career is to be a stylist or a fashion magazine editor.  My dreams are not close at all to what I am currently doing (teaching).

4) Top wish list items at the moment?

Oh man, so many things:

1) Chanel quilted handbag – will definitely not get one of these anytime soon, but a girl can dream…right?

2)More Pandora Charms for my charm bracelet.

3) Long winter coat (duster style coat).
5) Favorite television shows?

The Musketeers – they are so good looking…Aramis *swoon* haha.

Criminal Minds, The Fosters, Luther, Police Ten 7.

I love this scene from Police Ten 7:

6) What store do you find yourself shopping in the most?

Smoove – a reworked vintage store.

Also Glassons.  I tend to do a lot more internet shopping these days.  I find it’s cheaper.  I particularly like Lindy Bop and ASOS.
7) Favorite fashion designers?

Chanel, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen.
8) Describe your dream vacation?

If I could, I would travel for 6 months through Europe.  Just me, a bag and my camera.
9) What are the goals for your blog?

I love to blog.  I would like to do some more campaigns or something.  I would also like to grow my blog and get self hosting.
10) If you had the opportunity to interview a celebrity, who would it be?

Jennifer Lawrence – she’s hilarious.  She doesn’t seem scary at all.

Or Anna Wintour – she’s fabulous!
