So I used going to Japan in May as an excuse to buy a nice travelling backpack. I mean... I didn't have one before and a carry-on airplane bag is definitely a necessity in my books. I also splurged on the above Stella Mccartney x Adidas sneakers because I figured that if I have super pretty sneakers it will encourage me to go to the gym more haha. I'll come back to you on whether that works or not :P I started off the year awesomely by going to the gym at least 3 times a week, but now that's just died in the ass because I'm playing sport about twice a week and working long hours. Gym is the last thing I want to do after a 10 hour day and I can't gym in the morning because I am NOT a morning person. At least last month I joined a tennis club, so maybe next on my list are perhaps the above tennis wristbands and socks. They are so cute!

it's our 5th birthday!

Throwback time... read on for a giveaway!

These photos are such a throwback for me. I can't believe it's been five years since I started blogging on Opinionslave. I've matured and grown a lot not only as an everyday person, but as a creative who has had the pleasure of dealing with (and making friends with!) many amazing other creatives. I would like to thank everyone who has been there with me along this journey, whether you're my friend, acquaintance, onlooker, reader, colleague, follower or business or PR person. I hope to upkeep this blog as long as my heart desires... tbh I don't know how long that will be!

Anyway, enough with the cliche and mopey stuff.. to celebrate Opinionslave's 5th Birthday and to celebrate the near-beginning of Autumn, I've teamed up with The Myer Centre Brisbane to giveaway a $200 centre giftcard (yes that means this is only open to Brisbane residents, sorry).

To enter:
Post your favourite 'Autumn themed' photo on Instagram and hashtag  #OpinionslavexTheMyerCentre. You must also tag and follow both @opinionslave and @themyercentre accounts. The winner will be chosen at random and posted on my Instagram in 1.5 weeks!

Good luck and thanks again for reading... some of you for the last five years x

beauty: daily regime.

I'm not much of a beauty product fiend, nor am I that good with hair/makeup (hence why I never post about this kind of stuff), but I thought... there's always a first time for everything! The above pretty much consists of my daily regime, minus my $5 blush from Kmart, Maybelline black eyeliner pencil and MAC mascara. My lovely sister bought this Chanel foundation for me as a birthday treat and I am a big fan. I usually use Revlon/chemist foundation because it gets the job done and I don't believe in paying nearly $100 for something you'll just wipe off your face. However, if I had the choice I would definitely use Chanel Vitalumiere or Giorgio Armani silk foundation (one I decided to buy and try a while ago) because both products are so silky smooth upon application! I've tried MAC foundation, but I find it way too orange for my skin (making me look like a guido). Also I'm not much a lipstick person as I hate having to monitor its coverage throughout the day (and it always somehow gets on my chin when eating), but I love a good subtle dose of d'armani rogue 507 (pink) lipstick, or anything else that is a light pink for a feminine finish. Limecrime and MAC are my other two favourite brand of lipsticks for their staining coverage and ability to not make my lips super dry. 

What are your 'must have' beauty products?
