Motel Dresses

I shouldn't be blog posting atm, but I really can't be bothered to learn my German speech off by heart right now for tomorrows speaking exam...
Sooooo solution? Online shopping!!!! :) :)

Have any of you tried the MAC Studio Fix Powder? 

I just ordered it in NW25 and have heard mixed things about it but thought I'd see for myself.

I got an oily t-zone and combo everywhere else so I'm hoping it won't turn into one of those foundations that make you even oilier. 
I really want to try the MAC Studio Tech one as well. Anyone tried that one too?

When it comes to dresses I am in love with bodycon styles. With my make up and hair done for a night out, I always feel up to the 'party mood' with a bodycon. I was blog surfing the other day and saw a comment mentioning a website called and there are so many bodycon dresses on that site!! I think most of them are actually. And topshop sometimes sells some of Motel's stuff so some of you might actually recognise their things.

Anyway. The ones I am eyeing atm are these (order of preference):
imagine this colour against a really good tan
either this black dress or the next one. i like this one cause it looks diff
I'm usually a size 8 when it comes to the dresses but the problem I always have is with my waist cause its usually still a tiiny bit loose there and I'm jst thinking since all these dresses need that part to be literally perfect fit since they all dip so low at the back hmmmmmmmm dunno... decisions decisions.

Anyways what do you guys think about these 3? Or are there any others on the site that you think would look good?


So the dresses arrived today.... disappointed! First off the peach one wasn't even that vibrant in colour. Looked as if it had been washed with a load of blacks so the colour was way dulled down.

Next the black one (second pic above). Better wuality bodice material but the straps aroudn the neck are to big so don't hand right..... Sighhhhhhhh. Waste of money once again.

Katy Perry - Purr

Now before you think 'oh just another celebrity perfume' stop! I went into Myer (big department store here in Australia)with the intention of smelling my all time favourite perfume Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy (which is on my current perfume wish list atm) and there were all these chicks dressed up in purple catsuits with cat ear headbands *huh??*. They were promoting the new Katy Perry perfume called 'Purr'.

I was just going to walk by and ignore them like I usually do with most perfume promoters but I'm so happy I didn't. A spritz on a paper sample, a spritz on my wrists and a mini sample later I was hooked. I went home and seriously I couldn't stop sniffing my wrists the whole way back. 

Obviously couple days later I ended up buying it. LOVE IT!!

So what does it smell like?

"combining top notes of peach, forbidden apple, gardenia and green bamboo
with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose and the
base of vanilla orchid, creamy sandalwood, white amber, coconut and musk."

First off I love anything vanilla and coconut smelling - they are my fav. I love fruity smells in perfumes so that's probably why I was so attracted to it. And omg it lasts for hours before wearing off. Even after it starts wearing off a bit, the last lingering notes are still amazing. I even sprayed some in my hair at the beginning of the day and after tying it up over night and letting it down the next morning I still got a whiff of it. 

Perfect for day and night in my opinion. The fruity smells make it appealing for day and then the vanilla and coconut make it sexy enough for night. The staying power is also a definite plus for night time wear. It is quite a sexy smell actually.

IF I had to compare it to another perfume I'd only slightly compare it to Juicy's Viva La Juicy. But only after a couple hrs wear cause in my opinion Purr starts off much stronger and "deeper" and smells different. After it dies down a bit, once vanilla starts shining through more, then VLJ is close. 
Go out and smell this one for yourselves. Definite staple with me now!
Retails for (AUD)$69 at priceline and Myer for the 50ml bottle and $89 at Myer for 100ml

Royal Wedding

How amazing was the royal wedding on Friday?! 
Loved it! 
My mum was over in Sydney for a visit so it was me and her in the hotel room watching the whole thing. 

I loved watching every second of it. Best moments? 

- When Catherine walked into the church and Prince Harry turned around to see how she looked like since Prince William wasn't allowed to look yet
- The dress <full stop>
- The SECOND kiss on the balcony. The fact that there even was a second kiss
- The whole spectacle of the carriages, the horses, the masses of people etc etc etc

What were your favourite moments?

how cute is that little girl looking up at them?
