Fave things Friday #10

It’s FriYAY again…time to prepare for a weekend of fun after a full on week. Everything has been crazy this week with sides of stress and exhaustion so to say I’m looking forward to the weekend is an understatement. First and foremost, I’m extremely excited about being at one with nature tomorrow for a bit (hoping I don’t freeze in the process) and meandering around looking for mushrooms. If you missed my post about this and would like to know just what I’m referring to, you can read about it here. Aside from that, I’m a bit excited about taking part in Stephanie’s, of Love Your Wardrobe, style challenge- #10x10capsulestyle which kicks off on Monday.

This is what I’m referring to…

That’s right we are starting the #10x10capsulestyle challenge again on Monday 22nd of May. Choose your 10 items and join in! . 10 garments into 10 outfits over 10 days! Here’s a pic of my last 10 and you can flick back through the feed to see how I mixed and matched them. . Here’s a few things I learnt from last time… Think about how each piece can mix and match with the others before you include it in your 10. Washing! If it needs dry cleaning, ironing, special care hand washing, is that a practical piece to include in your 10? Check out your calendar and weather forecast, what items are you going to need most of? Don’t disregard a favourite piece because you’ve only worn it one way every time you’ve worn it…now may be the best time to discover new ways to wear that piece. Have Fun! . . . #10x10capsulestyle #capsulechallenge #minimalstyle #outfitoftheday #simplestyle #capsulecloset #capsuleliving #capsuling #acapsulechallengeinmay #keepsboredomaway

So 10 pieces to wear in 10 combinations over 10 days. Given I’m working half those days, I’ve chosen to go with 10 pieces from Motto (where I werrrrk) and have planned out my 10 outfits to wear over the 10 days. I can’t wait to show off my emsembles!!! A few of the pieces you have seen me wear before…quite a few times in fact but I will be endeavouring to change up the combo’s and put different twists on them all!

On with my fave things… Oh, just quickly before that, I’m launching a new page on my blog, it’s not a post but a permanent page which will have things to do which are recommended by me. If you have something I should be putting on there, please email me at lifelovesandliz@gmail.com to let me know! These things needn’t be all family/kid friendly, they can be grown up events, small, large, etc etc. They will however, mostly be Victorian so I can recommend them as I rarely go anywhere outside the state!!! Anywho…

do:

Get active and show your support at CGU’s Move In May at The Tan on Sunday 21st May at 10am. It is an all inclusive Fun Run/Walk that supports and celebrates International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia. Get your tickets here.

My gf Penny just penned a piece for Collective Hub about fab new startup business Code Like A Girl. I have posted about them in the past but I’m super psyched to see them going from strength to strength garnering attention left, right and centre! Read about the Founders Ally and Vanessa, what their vision is and how they both want to ensure females are right amongst it when it comes to future tech jobs.

buy:

Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent 100ml at David Jones $130

bellabox gave me the bestest sample this month! Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder Skinscent. So reminiscent of my all time fave scent Azuree Soleil by Tom Ford for Estee Lauder, this is the newest reincarnation and it’s made me fall in love with it all over again…and has me rushing out to buy it! Probably not the most Wintery of scents but I’m so in love with it, I don’t even care!!!! I will be bathing in this and dreaming of summer 🙂

make:

Host a girls night in with a twist. This fun grown up slumber party by Brit & Co. includes craft activities, grown up snacks and drinks and a totally relaxed vibe. Perfect for when you want to catch up with your gf’s but don’t actually want to go out! I’m doing something very similar very soon!!!

watch:

I like Miley. I don’t always “get” her outfit or life choices but hells, I ain’t her living the crazy life she lives in the public eye. She has an amazing voice (still getting the chills from her doing Jolene with Dolly) and this lil tune is very chilled and obviously an ode to Liam and just gorg to listen to. <3
