Happy New Year!!

Thought I’d keep this post nice and simple and wish you all a happy new year!!

I actually can’t believe how fast 2013 went for me. I have had many fashionable moments including starting this blog and my facebook page as well as attending fashion shows, getting a job at a fashion boutique and even meeting one of my favourite fashion designers, Bettina Liano!

This year I aim to strive towards my goal and further myself in the fashion industry ❀

You followers are the ones who keep me going in fashion blogging. I greatly appreciate all those who follow me and take Β time to read my blog posts. I may not be the best at writing but I am creative and knowledgeable when it comes to styling and understanding fashion. I hope you all enjoy my fashion related posts in the future!

The Newly Launched CovR Magazine Clutch Handbags

I would like to share with you all a new-found love I have for the CovR magazine clutches! As you all know I am obsessed with handbags as well as owning a never-ending collection of various high magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and FashionTrend. What I love about CovR is the fact that two my favourite things in the entire world has combined into this beautiful creation: a magazine cover clutch. Honestly…what more could I wish for? Love it!

CovRbags.com is the exclusive website for the newly launched CovR magazine clutches which are the latest collections of beautifully designed clutches with the effect of a wrap around magazine that looks incredible with any outfit.

Within each of these collections, a theme is presented to provide versatility and excitement for the Covr clutch.

This first cover is the ROYAL HORSE RIDING AND fIERCE FASHION EDITION! This clutch is a gorgeous statement piece for any outfit if you want to add a bit of ‘fierce[ness]’ that can be taken from day to night.

MONOCHROME WINTER WARMS AND FALL FASHION CLUTCH HANDBAG is the second cover shown. With monochrome being a hit seasonal trend, why not carry this elegant and sophisticated cover look around with you while dining with some friends? It is absolutely stunning!

The COUTURE EDIT- RED LUSCIOUS LIPS is a sultry and sexy cover clutch that will look amazing with your evening ensemble and screams out high fashion with a touch of rouge. This I would have to say is my favourite clutch in the collection πŸ™‚

This last cover shown is the LEOPARD PRINT SIZZLING SUMMER SPECIAL! As summer is just around the corner for us Aussies, why not carry around this clutch that has a touch of animal instinct and a cover that is summery and gorgeous!

It can be the perfect addition to a cute, bright coloured dress as seen in the above photo! Who would have thought that holding what looks to be a rolled up magazine can add a touch of sophistication and excitement making your outfit even more beautiful? πŸ™‚

Woohoo! Made it to my first 100!

Jumping up with joy right now!

I have finally achieved my first 100 followers for my fashion blog! I know it’s not a lot but honestly every follower counts in my books and I am truly blessed that people from all over the world read my blog!

I have only had this blog for less than a year but I feel like I have had it a lot longer and wouldn’t know where I would be without having a fashion blog to share all my fashion insights and updates with you all.

I am coming to the end of the semester with uni so you can expect more regular blog posting from me!

Thanks again for being my loyal follower!

Here is an editorial shot taken from Vogue Japan (2009) representing my appreciation for my 100th follower. The body language shows it all and since you can’t see me this is what I would be doing (or something simliar lol) Yipeee!

The importance of having a routine :)

Since joining the gym (3 months ago), I have this new-found appreciation for having a healthy exercise routine! Before joining a gym, I found that I was very inconsistent with my exercise such as going for walks about 3 times a week to then going for long walks every second week, or I had amazing workout plans to do lunges, squats, sit ups then after the second week I slowly forgot this amazing plan to get fit! I found myself to be very lethargic, lacking in concentration and my diet was completely out of whack.

The point of me writing this post? Well I just wanted to share the idea of how important a well-balanced routine is and how much it has improved my health and even the outlook of my future! As I do freelance modelling, I thought to myself that it was important to feel and look good and therefore this will shine throughout my shoots. To be a model it is vital to have a healthy lifestyle as it is a career that focuses heavily on your looks and your ability to portray a healthy figure (however this may not be the case for some models and they appear to be way too thin!).

Since joining the gym I have been feeling great! My body is slowly starting to look more toned and lean, I am able to concentrate a whole lot better, I’m eating better, my skin looks great and feeling fit is one of the greatest feelings in the world! You feel like you can accomplish and take on anything!

So, what does my routine at the gym involved?

Just remember, this routine I’m about to speak of doesn’t only apply for working out at the gym..this can be done at the leisure of your own home.

Routine involves:

  • 20-30 minute of cardio. So this consists of 10-15 mins of cross trainer and 15-20 mins of the treadmill. occasionally I fit in Cycling but not a huge fan of that.
  • Weights: This includes working on my Abs, leg press and a bit on the arms too
  • Floor work: This consists of a whole range of things such as lunges with weights, step ups on blocks, push ups….this all depends on how much time I have and my energy levels for the day.
  • Warm down: This is vital, especially for my routine of strenuous work! I really want to increase my flexibility so I do lots of stretches to increase my flexibility and most importantly, I do planks as its great for the core muscles!

So that pretty much sums up my routine! If you have any more questions, feel free to send me a comment!

To end this post on an even more positive note, check out my gorgeous new Free Run Nike’s that I bought last week!

My outfit for a charity ball!

Would like to share with you some snaps of an outfit I wore last night to my friends 21st birthday which was also a charity ball to raise money for Variety Australia.

1011162_10151415916286455_467015641_n

The top left photo is the back of my dress with a cut-out design and a gold zip and this dress was bought from Forever New. This dress was also fall length and had slits down both sides.

My shoes were from Novo and they had a slight heel so I could have a bit of height as well as not being too uncomfortable in massive heels.

Next photo you will see is the black and gold clutch from Colette. So gorgeous and very roomy for all my essential things.

Then lastly you see an image of my belt which accompanied my long black dress.

As you can see here, I had a gold and black theme going on with my outfit and I am so obsessed with wearing these two colours…as you probably know already from my post a few months ago about those shoes I bought πŸ˜›

Hope you liked my chosen outfit for last night! Thoughts?? Send your comments my way ❀

Excited about my fashion drawing shortcourse!!

Holidays are slowly creeping up (wish they could come along faster! Need the break!) and I thought to myself that I should do something fun and productive over the uni holiday break to get away from my never-ending stress of my psych degree!

As I was flicking through various short courses in fashion, fashion drawing was the course that stood out for me most amongst the other courses, so I thought, ‘Why not take the opportunity and do something that can benefit me more in the fashion industry!’.

This fashion short course is aimed for beginners so this is perfect for me as my drawing of garments are shocking and I definitely need to pick up again on how to draw sketches of models with correct proportions and learn how to draw detailed garments.

So during my time of my short drawing course which starts next month, I’ll give you guys a rundown of each of my classes to get an idea of what fashion drawing involves and all the fun things I have learnt and even provide you all with some sketches I have done (if they are good enough haha).

Can’t wait to share with you all this amazing experience which will help me sketch down all fashion ideas I have in mind but couldn’t get down on paper.

love,

Rania May

Beauty tip #5!

My beauty tip for you all this week involves haircare…

Do you find that your hair over time has become brittle or damaged after using heat products?

Well my tip is to let your hair dry naturally as often as possible. As I have mentioned in a previous post that I have very tight, crazy curls, its best to let it dry naturally rather than using a hairdryer which ruins my curls and causes my hair to split.

Its easier though in the warmer weather to go out in the sun and let it dry naturally so it might be harder in the winter time, especially when in a rush to get somewhere! Honestly though, let your hair dry naturally without any heating products for a month and you will see a difference in the health of your hair! Also try and put an oil (I use Argan oil) in your hair while letting it dry, your hair will love it!

Hope you all have a great week!
