.so very frightened.

Hello our lovely readers,

This week has been quite adventures.. we hopped on a plane half way across Australia to visit the city of Melbourne.. we were on the hunt for unique pieces, sassy street style, and things we would not be able to purchase in our own city. We got our hands of a number of great finds, and rummaged through many vintage stores. Our feet are quite crippled currently, due to continuous walking for 4 days straight, but it was all worth it in the name of fashion!

.point in time.

Today we are going to discuss the most common type of Sabo. This Sabo doesn't even realise that they are, in fact, damaging another's confidence/reputation. This Sabo wanders through life constantly talking negatively about certain people behind their backs while being nice to their faces and never tells them that their bum does actually look big in that skirt. Hopefully, we can end this type of horrible behaviour. If you yourself have just realised that you are subconsciously a Sabo, the next time your friend is wearing a midriff top with muffin hanging over her shorts, let her know that it doesn't quite look the same way as it did on the runway model. You'll be a better friend for it. Trust us.

Always remember, "Those who hate you don't win unless you hate them."

.saboskirt for FrockShop.

The lovely Jessy from contacted us to partner up in a collaborative project! We can't express how AMAZING their online store is... If you have been wondering where you can get your hands on some Australian labels, this is the perfect place for you. They stock some of our favourite Aussie labels, so if you're looking for a special garment, make sure you head over to their online store. Better yet, they have recently launched a daily style blog, FS Style that celebrates all things on trend and in style.

FrockShop has given our lucky readers a unique code for you all to use (how lovely!!) - if you enter SABOSKIRT at the checkout, you'll receive 10% off all purchases (including sale items). This offer is valid from now until midnight on Tuesday 20 of July so make sure you don't miss out on a great buy.

Jessy also sent us through some sneak peak shots from a recent shoot using a mix of vintage and current season Karla Spetic, Ginger & Smart, and Elizabeth and James. We are loving the hint of summer! Here in Australia we are lingering in winter, we found this shoot so refreshing.. enjoy pretty people! x

.sterling silver skulls.

Throwing on an outfit with a combination of good and evil can show you’re not afraid to mix it up. We love mixing bows with biker gloves, dresses with a gothic cross, and a skull ring made of diamonds. It's insane how much opposites attract; there is nothing wrong with a little contrast

.giveaway winners.

Hello lovelies!!

We have picked the winners of the fabulous Nude by Nature mineral makeup packs. We absolutely LOVED reading all of your beauty tips and had a lot of fun trying some of them out. We found it so difficult picking our two winners, so we decided to make it three instead =D clocked - We absolutely loved her tip. We often find ourselves without blush so we thought her idea was amazing
"If your blusher runs out... add a touch of pink lipstick to the cheeks for a fresh healthy glow!"

2. LELASULLY - In our opinion, this is genius. We gave it a go, and it works like a charm... "I swear by sea salt spray!! I make my own too, for that beachy just-don't-care look, after I get out the shower I spay loads on and leave it or blow dry until damp!"

3.kaliyah - We know that this tip sounds simple, but for the past week we have been trying this one and we have really noticed a difference in our skin!
"I wash my face with hot water three times. I think the hot water almost sterilises your skin and cleans the dirt away."

Congratulations to the winners and thanks again to everyone who contributed. Keep your eyes peeled for more giveaways.. =)

xx .love us.

.leather love.

One of our new found obsessions is adding a touch of leather to our outfits. Whether it's in the form of a bag, pants, vest or shorts, it instantly gives your look an edgy feel. Our new favourite addition to our leather collection has to be shorts. We just can't get enough of them!

We hope you're all enjoying your weekends =)
