On a boat, on a boat, in Sydney, on my way to Manly Beach!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Ray-ban Aviators thanks to OPSM, Asos heart-print dress (buy it here), Topshop wedges (buy it here), Chanel #64 lipstick (buy it here), Miss Selfridge cuff (buy it here), Asos spikes bracelet

Ahhhhhh, the beach. The beauty about being a part time dealer at the casino means I get to enjoy days like this on the weekdays. Of course I work night shifts and weekends, but I work less days because of my high pay rate. 6 months ago, when I worked in fashion design for 2 years, I worked 9am straight through to 6pm (or 7PM, 8PM, 9PM........ or midnight) and still only got a capped pay check. But now, I get paid on an hourly basis and work less days and thus have more free time.
I spent my free time (my 4th day off in a row now) taking the infamous ferry to Manly Beach from Circular Quay. Boy, its a beautiful trip. You are treated to a peaceful 20 minute ride facing the grande Sydney Harbour bridge, the cliffs, the Opera house and the ferry docks onto the beach itself. Me and a bestie cozied into the Manly shops, soaked up the sun at Manly beach and ate Ben & Jerry's. A very very peaceful afternoon.
Days like this don't come often enough so I am very grateful for it.

Of course, here is another reminder about my makeup giveaway. Like or share my facebook page and you get an entry! MAC, Chanel and Napoleon Perdis makeup on offer!

Much love~ 
xx Natalie

Lovely dress. Nice style and polka dots are always great. Paired perfectly with those shoes. You really know what you're doing.

And I'm glad to hear you get plenty of time off work. Time is as valuable as money. I wish I had more of it.

Loving the spiked cuff, and the dress has a lovely vintage look to it. Those shoes are great! They look a lot like the Theyskens' Theory wedges you posted about a while ago.
