Sydney Purchases – No. 1

Gosh am feeling super tired today. Semi caused by jet lag, not getting back until 1am last night & day light saving kicking in! So tonight only a quick first post to share some my Sydney purchases. 
Numero Uno is on cosmetics and jewellery.
♥ MAC Shy Girl Lipstick
♥ Benefit High Beam 
♥ Chloé – Eau De Toilette 
♥ Batiste – Dry Shampoo (Original)
♥ Ultra3 -Brow pencil (blonde) 

♥ Gold & Black knot earrings from Sportsgirl
♥ Silver knot earrings from Sportsgirl
(Can you tell I have a slight obsession with 
knot earrings at the moment? LOL)

Was so happy to get my hands on MAC Shy Girl Lipstick (duty free!) because everytime I have tried to get it from a MAC store elsewhere they had sold out! It had been on my wish list for sooooo long!
I wore it today and just LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Most gorgeous nude, peachy colour!
Night night, am off to bed :)

PS: Expect review & how to apply post on Benefit High Beam soon!

Best & Worst Oscars 2010

Overall I was a little disappointed with the gowns this year, there was no-one that really stood out & that looked out of this world amazing to me…However these are my Best and Worst picks from the 2010 Oscars (including after parties)
Best
Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab Haute Couture
So different and love how she kept everything else fairly simple. Very elegant!
Kate Bosworth in Valentino at the Vanity Fair after party.
Gorgeous colour!
Victoria Beckham at the 2010 Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party wearing a nude gown from her own 2010 fall collection. Really like this dress, it looks classic and flawless on her.
Jake Gyllenhaal in Burberry (HOT – need I say anymore)?! 
I actually also really liked Maggie Gyllenhaal’s dress. The blue just made her look very vibrant.


Miley Cyrus in champagne coloured Jenny Packham dress
Am normally not much of a Miley fan but think this dress is stunning and love her makeup & hair combination.

A little special mention, just because I think he’s so hot! Ryan Reynolds in Tom Ford ♥ Sigh…Scarlet is one lucky girl!!!


Worst




Jennifer Lopez in Giorgio Armani Prive. 
Don’t like the fabric and it’s just plain unflattering in some angles, sorry J-Lo!


Mariah Carry in Valentino. 
Too much leg for the Oscars and just “no”

Charlize Theron in Dior Couture
I usually love her style! The dress fits wonderfully on her amazing body but I just don’t really like the rose details on her chest. Plus don’t like the red lipstick with this outfit…

Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta
I think the dress is gorgeous but the hair and makeup is too much for me with this super sparkly dress. The dress paired with a simple loose updo & gold smokey eyes with soft lips and I would have loved it.



These were MY picks and therefore completely my opinion so feel free to disagree :) Who’s look did you love or hate?

Recent Shopping Haul

Some recent shopping purchases. I went a little “crazy” at Country Road (whoops). Love their 2010 Urban Career collection. I got:

Country Road Black Low Rise Skinny Jean

Country Road Black Dustin Leather Boots

Boots & Jeans together

I really needed some new black boots and just fell in love when I saw these! I have pretty skinny calves so I always struggle to find boots that are not too loose fitting around my legs. These black boots were a perfect fit and come up quite high, just below the knee. With no zips they are a bit of a mission to get on!! But once on, they fit like a glove. Will just have to remember not to wear these boots when out shopping or something because that would be a nightmare haha.

Country Road Black Long Line Double Breasted Blazer

Then I also got a dress from Augustine International. The designer, Kelly Coe, is an up and coming NZ designer. She is a close friend of one of my friends so we got to pre-order some of her 2010 Winter collection earlier last year. The dress I ordered arrived yesterday!

Elegantly Elle Dress

It’s a pretty purple/blue silky dress with heavy gold beading at the bottom. Initially I was quite worried to order something without getting to try it on, but tried it on last night and was happy with the look!

Now I need to avoid the shops for a while to save money :) I am off to Sydney (Australia) for a long Easter weekend in April so no clothes shopping until that trip!!!
