Shop My Wardrobe and Send a Girl to School with CAREgifts

bmtetris

I’ve always been a keen supporter of Charity events. For years I have taken part in the World’s Greatest Shave, 40 Hour Famine, and Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Shoebox Appeal. As I was cleaning out my wardrobe and deciding what to do with my ‘designer’ (Mink Pink, Black Milk) pieces I realised that with the money raised from the sale of items in my wardrobe I could help a girl in need.

CAREgifts are offering many unconventional, yet meaningful gifts this Christmas. Online you can purchase gift packs like the “Send a Girl to School” pack ($69) which helps to pay for educational resources and teaching programs in developing countries that CARE distribute. My goal in selling my item’s is to not only raise enough money for a CAREgift pack but also to raise awareness for those thinking of donating to charity in this time of giving. For purchasing details please follow the link HERE to the Sought-after Style Facebook Page where I am holding the virtual Wardrobe Sale. Continue reading

Acne is whole lot of hurt. Not just the hurt of the annoying, under-the-skin bumps either. Having acne is emotionally draining, over time those little bumps slowly steal away at your self-confidence. There are so many different products on the market that claim to rid your skin of acne. However, the majority of them just don’t work. During my struggle with acne I tried everything from Proactiv to Clearasil. Nothing worked for me, until about a month ago, when I came across some of the most amazing products i’ve ever tried… and now all i’ve got to deal with are the minimal scarring left behind! Read on to find out what Skincare products you need if you suffer from acne. Make sure to Share this post with someone you know that’s going through an acne battle, the quicker they find these products the better! Continue reading

This Time Last Year I Was…

Checking out snow for the first time...

Around this time last year I was living it up as an exchange student in the not-so-tropical (sarcasm) country that is Switzerland. I was a linguistic exchange student, and it was my first trip to the Northern Hemisphere. During this time I may have missed out on Summer Holidays and Christmas with the family… but I did get up to a lot of interesting stuff. Today i’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane and have a look and what was happening this time last year in my life… comment below what was happening in yours! I’d love to know!

Mid Week Beach Escape feat. Gyspea Swimwear

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

This week I was lucky enough to escape the rat race for a few days to relax in the humble NSW beach town of Yamba. It was nice to escape for a few days and just laze about the pool and spend my spare time stretching out on my yoga mat – oh what I would do to be back there now!

Prior to my holiday I was lucky enough to be sent out a lovely one-piece swimsuit from the ladies at Gypsea Swimwear Australia, so I had the luxury of rocking a super-hot one piece for the majority of my trip – who wouldn’t choose to spend the day in the pool in 30 degree heat?  Continue reading
