Pink Vintage Tee & Acid Wash Shorts | Perfect Back to Uni Outfit





Little White Lies T-Shirt, Levis Shorts, White Leather High-Top Converse

Afternoon lovelies, 

How is it back to uni tomorrow?! I have no idea where my holidays have gone! The only thing I'm looking forward to is planning a few uni outfits (and maybe using my new stationery) such as this cute Vintage Tee from Dissh and these Acid Wash Levis that I found for $4 at the suitcase rummages in Brisbane. (Such a bargain!) I love the look of them paired with converse, super cute and practical, especially if you're doing a science degree like me and are restricted to enclosed shoes most of the time.

Besides mentally preparing for uni, I've spent numerous hours lying on the beach trying desperately to soak up the last of those summer rays in the hope that bronzed skin will keep my spirits up as the new semester begins.

Anyway, I'd better go check my timetable and start getting organised for tomorrow!

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday afternoon,

Kelly xx

My Top 10 Island Escape Essentials



Hello lovelies,
I'm so sorry I didn't share this post sooner but sometimes life just gets in the way. Summer is now coming to an end but I still want to share this post with you guys in case you're lucky enough to be jetting off to a tropical island escape while we head towards winter. (In which case I'm very jealous!) Without further ado, here are my top 10 island escape essentials:

1. Cute Bikini/One Piece
For obvious reasons! I'm in love with my Tigerlily bikini and classic style one piece from Show Pony. 

2. Wide Brim Hat & Some Stylish Sunnies
Perfect for protecting yourself from the sun while looking super cute and stylish.

3. Cute Floral Playsuits/Dresses
To relax in while you sip a few cocktails by the pool.

4. Body Scrub
I loooooooove these 2 body scrubs I've been using lately - Soap & Glory's Breakfast Smoothie Scrub and Life's a Beach Coconut Scrub. Both smell so delicious and scrubs are great for scrub off dead skin so your skin is glowing and prepped for some fake tan.

5. Gradual Tanner
Perfect for building up a tan during your holiday but without the damaging side effects of a natural tan. This Bondi Sands gradual tanner gives you the most natural looking tan you won't even be able to tell that it's fake!

6. Sun Tan Oil
I'll be honest, sometimes I just like the look and feel of a real tan, but this Reef sun tan oil has SPF15 so does give your skin the extra protection while letting your skin darken slightly. If you prefer not to damage your skin at all, they also have an SPF30 lotion.

7. A Tropical Fragrance
Such as this Juicy Couture one gets you in the mood!

8. Bronzer and Highlighter
For accentuating that glowing face!

9. Moisturizing Lip Balm and Shampoo and a Liquid Lipstick
Sometimes sand and salt water can wreck havoc on our features including our lips and hair. Make sure you take extra moisturising shampoo, conditioner and lip balm! It will be a life saver! And a liquid lipstick can't hurt for a lasting pop of colour on your lips.

10. Travel Journal & Passport
Definitely the most important item you will need! I love having my travel journal to document all the cool adventures and all the experiences I have when travelling. And this one from Kikki.K is super cute!

What are your summer essentials when escaping on an island holiday? Let me know in the comments below!
