Can we take a moment to just take a deep breath? *breathe deeply* This month has been quite a busy one for me, where I'm trying to stay on top of things. Not getting the adequate amount of sleep that I should be getting every night but I'm surviving. Just. I have one more week of Uni then it's the mid-semester break. Not so much a break for me as I will be helping out at the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. I am actually so excited and really looking forward to it. Bring it!
When I'm constantly on-the-go, I like to wear an outfit that's simple yet chic and doesn't require lots of thoughts to put together. I decided on a grey monochromatic colour scheme to go with the gloomy Melbourne weather teehee. When working with a monochromatic outfit, it's important to add texture. I added the black leather jacket for that shiny texture to add some dimension to the outfit. Another tip is to play with patterns! The top with grey, white and black stripes adds some visual interest and contrast to the overall look. 
What is your most worn colour?

GUEST POST| 7 Beauty Products that Will Speed up Your Beauty Routine

Women all over the globe will surely agree on the fact that there’s never enough time to get prepared in the morning. If you’re one of them – welcome to the club! Of course, leaving your house looking like you’ve just got out of bed is simply unacceptable, but we have a solution to that problem. Here are essential beauty products and steps you need to follow in order to speed up your beauty routine, so check them out!

Cleanse and exfoliate your face the night before
Cleansing is essential after you remove your makeup before bedtime, and it will certainly save you some time in the morning. If you cleanse and exfoliate your face the night before, a moisturising wipe will be just enough to remove dirt (if any) and hydrate your skin.

Dry shampoo to the rescue
Washing your hair in the morning can be really time-consuming, which is exactly why a dry shampoo should be a staple in your bathroom. This extraordinary product absorbs oil between washings and masks dirt and odour in your hair, which makes it an absolute must-have. Some of them, such as De Lorenzo Essential Treatments Absorb Dry Shampoo actually add fullness and volume to your hair, while keeping it fresh and clean.

Get a long-lasting body wash

When buying your cosmetic products, either makeup or skincare ones, make sure that you choose the ones with long-lasting effects. This is particularly important if you decide to take a shower the night before in order to save some time in the morning – the scent will last much longer, helping you stay fresh all day long.

CC cream instead of foundation
Ditch your foundation and get a BB or CC cream instead – it still provides good coverage, while protecting and moisturising your skin at the same time. Garnier offers the most amazing line of such products which provide a long-lasting hydration and correct blemishes. It gets even better when you realise that some of them even have anti-ageing properties!

Skip your eye cream

Even though this may sound weird, skipping your eye cream can really be a time-saver when you’re in a hurry. Trust us, a regular serum you use on a daily basis will do the trick – your under-eye area will be hydrated and well-nourished, and it will definitely save you a step! CR Formulations’ The One serum will do wonders for your face, making it look refreshed and plumped up.

Red lipstick is your go-to option

Red lipstick can complement almost any outfit, and it can do a wonderful job even if you don’t apply anything else. If you choose to put focus on your lips, your eyes and cheeks can remain makeup-free, which is always a good option – particularly when you’re in a hurry. However, if you have trouble finding a perfect shade for your skin tone, check out an offer by Clarins makeup brand. Their Rouge Eclat lipstick line features several shades appropriate for different skin tones, so make sure that you’ve picked the right one!
Don't forget mascara
Even one coat of your favourite mascara will accentuate your eyes and make them look wide open, so don’t forget to apply it even when you’re running late. It will make your lashes look longer, thicker, and darker, which will draw more attention to your face even when you don’t put any other makeup on. Make sure not to skip this step in your morning beauty routine, because it will enhance your facial features and make you look wide awake.
As you can see, your morning beauty routine doesn’t have to be as time-consuming as you probably thought. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to accomplish everything in time if you carefully think through every step – everything will be just fine if you’re well-organised!
