Hey lovelies!!

The new year is what I was looking forward to most and now that it's here I am feeling a whole new energy and in the words of the gorgeous Kalyn Nicholson, I'm hoping 2018 will be "magic"! There is always an element of mystery about the new year but I'm learning to embrace the positive even if it's the littlest thing in my day. I've definitely been noticing a difference in my mood and because of it I smile and laugh a lot more so I'm super happy about that!

This makeup wrapped up all of that magic and happiness into one effortless look and I mean, have you ever seen me this glowy?! Ahh I'm just so excited about the little flutters of giddiness I get when I'm in my room working on my blog or listening to country songs and truly rocking out to the words of Sam Hunt because I haven't had that for awhile now, but hey it's here now so I'll bask in it!

I hope that you love this look as much as I do, I thought it went great with the new hair and really channeled a raw edginess that I'm slowly embracing into my makeup routine. Hopefully my creative juices with fashion and beauty will begin flowing again now that we're officially in the new year and we're embracing those fresh, happy vibes! 

Until next time my loves!

Top 5 Instagram Accounts: Fitness Edition

Hey lovelies!!

If you've been here from the very beginning or at least since the start of 2016 you will know that I made a blog post listing my top 10 favourite Instagram profiles which A LOT of you seemed to love! I am well aware of the fact that Instagram users are very annoyed with the new algorithm and I too am upset because of the fact that not as many people get to see the content that I post which then defeats the object of me trying to build the readership for my blog.

Despite all of this, I thought that I would bring light to the situation and offer you a new series that features some of my favourite Instagrammers in all things fashion, fitness, travel, blogging and so many more! First up is fitness and I can't wait to show you the stunning and strong women that I follow every single day and inspire me to become a better version of myself. 

So without further ado, let's get into my top 5 favourite fitness-related Instagram accounts...


Instagram - Emily Skye

This girl sure knows how to work out and with the birth of her first child Mia, Emily Skye will definitely show you how to bounce back to your best self even if you don't think that it's possible! I love her sense of humour and her can-do attitude in life - nothing ever seems to phase her so if you're looking for some powerful and sometimes intense workout motivation then her Instagram account is the place to go! Just like many of the other women in this blog post and within the fitness industry, Emily isn't afraid to point out that her body isn't perfect and it's okay to have "flaws"; she makes you feel like you're not alone.


Nikki Blackketter is strong, super sexy and very sleek! She trains as hard as she flexes and the results clearly show in that amazing figure of hers. Nikki empowers the female body and shows us what it is capable of and, thanks to her short Instagram workout videos, we too can get the best out of the body we have been given! Go ahead and give her a follow to catch up with the progress that she's been making or if you just want some fitness inspo!


Sofia Jamora (left) is a stunner and although she's a model and not a personal trainer like the other beautiful women in this post, she at least represents the curvier girl much like Bree Kish (right) and the well-known Ashley Graham. Sofia supports the "love everyBODY" motto and flaunts her curves for all to see, not only on the runway, but also on the sites of some of your favourite stores such as Forever 21! What's more, she is a natural beauty that oozes feminine confidence so what's not to love?!


There are a lot of Australians up in this blog post but clearly they're all great examples of maintaining a great, healthy body all year round. Madalin Giorgetta is funny, super sweet and incredibly helpful! I love the fact that she posts images and short videos of how to perfect certain positions in your workouts, shows you that a healthy body isn't always about the kg's and always reflects back on her own personal journey to creating the lean body that she now rocks. Check out her Instagram for the full details of her 'Body by MG' programme if you're wanting to get in shape this season!


This girl's body is absolutely amazing, so much so that I am constantly checking back to see her new posts and those gorgeous abs of hers! Steph Smith promotes a cleaner lifestyle with plenty of exercise and great foods to make sure that we're all looking our very best. She is definitely one of my fitness inspirations on Instagram, thankfully because she has absolutely no problem pointing out that she, just like many others, has her own little "flaws" - hey, she still looks beautiful to me!
