I have stored my makeup brushes in lots of different ways over the last few years. I had them standing up in rice for a while but then started to worry about bugs growing in the rice. I was looking for inspiration on pinterest and was drawn to the pictures of brushes standing in simple jars.
I purchased the left jar from Vinnies and the matching one on the right from Howard's Storage World and then removed the lids. I had the jar in the middle hanging around the house already.
My style has changed a lot this year mainly due to the transition from University student to full time employee in a corporate office. I have tried to purchase items that I can dress up for work and dress down for the weekends and casual Fridays. I have also only been purchasing clothing in stores rather than online to ensure that they fit well and are good quality.
I bought the two Saba 'Kylie' breton tops a couple of months ago and they are my favourite tops. The material is very soft and they seem to go with everything in my wardrobe. I also picked up three silk blouses from Marcs. I struggle to find shirts and blouses that fit across my shoulders but these fit perfectly. They are also 'washable silk' so I don't have to pay a fortune to get them dry-cleaned every time I wear them.
David Lawrence isn't store that I normally go in to but I found this trench coat in David Jones last weekend. It is the exact colour and length that I was looking for and seems to be amazing quality. I loved this Cue skirt as soon as I saw it on Lion in the Wild back in March. As soon as the Cue sale started I went and hunted one down in my size.
I'm sure my mum is reading this and worrying I won't have any money to pay the rent, but I actually managed to get all of these items on sale!

I have been very quiet both on here and other social media sites recently. Rob and I have moved in to our own apartment and it has taken a few weeks to get internet set up. It has been very exciting and I can't wait to share some pictures when we finish setting up the place. We have been collecting antique knick-knacks and other homewares over the years and it is really nice for everything to finally have a home. The last few weekends have been spent travelling between Ikea, Target, Big W and Kmart to source everything from towels to wooden spoons! Moving out of home was one of my New Years Resolutions and I wasn't expecting it to happen until the end of the year so I am really happy we made it happen in May.
Revlon Raspberry Pie, Rimmel Kate Moss 107, MAC Syrup, MAC Rebel, Revlon Raspberry Bite
I have changed the name of "My Favourite" posts to "The Edit". It is now starting to feel like Autumn in Sydney so I have decided to pull out my berry and plum lipsticks. I tend to wear all of my lipstick colours all year round but berry and plum colours scream Autumn to me!
I wear Revlon Raspberry Pie and MAC Syrup on days that I can't be bothered constantly checking if my lipstick has smudged and gone all over my face or teeth. They are both very easy to apply. The Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 is a matte lipstick and as such has amazing lasting power and hardly needs topping up even after I eat. MAC Rebel and Revlon Raspberry Bite are both more creamy textures so they wear off quicker and therefore need to be applied more frequently.
