Breaker-Bay-Wellington-Yellow-Swimsuit-4

Hooray for sunny weather! Despite it being Winter in Wellington, we had a particularly sunny day recently, so I headed to my favourite spot, which is very, very conveniently hidden from the wind. I love being outdoors, and little weekend adventures are kind of the best thing ever. Oh, and beyond worth the 45 minute bus ride and $5 fare.

Me and my guy, Barnaby headed to the beach I love the most just to do some simple lazing in the sun. Don’t get me wrong – it was bloomin’ cold when we shot these photos (shade will do that!) but lying in the sunshine, with no wind whatsoever, I genuinely was warm as toast.

You might remember I visited this very same beach a few months back, and I’m fairly sure that while doing so I discovered the perfect formula; beehives, instant cameras, and vintage inspired swimsuits go together like nothing else. And who am I to ruin a good thing? ; )

Elf-Snow-White-Make-up-7

Make-up is an area I’ve been growing more and more passionate about recently and something I’ve been really wanting to share about more regularly on the blog. I figured there was no better way to start than by introducing the limited edition Snow White blush by Elf I bought while I was in America last year. Of course, I completely bought it for the packaging (how could I not?!) and am to-this-day regretting not buying the Ariel Lash Kit too. Boo!

Onto the make-up though; I have been trying this shade of blush for a couple of weeks now. It’s a little more orange and bronzer-esque than my usual Maybelline Fit Me (in medium pink) that I wear most days, but I quite like how it looks. Although I do think that Snow White would wear more of a pinkish shade, don’t you? If Walgreens does any more of these Disney collaborations I highly suggest you pick one up. I’m pretty sure this only cost me around $10, and it’s worth it alone for the sweet, sweet packaging!

Naturally, I just had to wear my seven dwarfs brooch to take these photos – and use a backdrop of apples too. Can you guess which one is poisoned? I’ll never tell! ; )
