Floral Dress

As some of you may know (as I keep bringing it up), it’s summer here! I’ve been wearing quite a few dresses. I shared a few of my favourite summer outfits a few week back. But the one I keep coming back to is this white and blue floral dress! It’s so sweet and feminine. The skirt is very floaty, and even has pockets! The back is a button up, and sits quite high above my waist, so I like to think it makes me seem taller!

Moon and Star Necklace


I bought this with my voucher from Kikki.K for my birthday. I didn’t know they had jewellery, but they had this sweet delicate necklace. They had a few designs to choose from, but this one called out to me! I’ve been wearing it practically on a daily basis, and I absolutely adore it!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (London)

I mentioned this in my Favourite Makeup Products post a few weeks back, but I really do love it! The formula is so soft and easy to apply, and it dries matte. I adore the brown/mauve colour, and it goes well with a gold/nude eye (which is my go-to). It’s so good!



I’ve read four books so far this month! That’s the most I’ve ever done in a while. I had lots of spare time in the holidays, and also, I was just really into the books I’ve been reading. I’ve jumped around genres, but my favourite so far is definitely Lauren Graham’s book, “Talking As Fast As I Can”. It was so funny and heartwarming to read, especially since I’m a huge fan of Gilmore Girls.

Nerdy Nummies

This was in my favourites last month, and it’s back again! This time, I’ve already managed to make a few recipes from it, and I’m planning out the next ones I want to try. I’ve decided that I will have it as a long-term goal to make everything from this book!

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Ro’s book is so amazing!! So happy you love it as much as I do xx

    1. It really is! Ooh, we should do a collab sometime where we both make something from the book ๐Ÿ˜€

            I’ve just ordered a cups measuring set so I can start to use my copy (I’m too lazy to convert everything), I’m so excited to make something from it finally.

  2. I only recently discovered ‘Gilmore Girls’ (little behind with that I know, aha) definitely going to check out Lauren Graham’s book!!

    1. Haha, one of the things I love about Netflix is how they revive shows that finished ages ago, and it’s like it reintroduces the show all over again to more people! It’s such an amazing show, and Lauren Graham’s book was so fun to read ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Lovely faves!

    1. Even if you guys don’t have a baking book, there’s heaps of recipes online! That’s where I get all my recipes from before I got Nerdy Nummies . There’d be heaps of kid-friendly ones you guys could do I’m sure ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. I’d rather have a book right in front of me because I hate going back into my phone LOL

  13. The NYX shade looks beautiful and I like your flowery dress Angela. This month I’ve been loving my essential rose hip oil, my body spray from Bath and Body Works called Black and my planner I got from Marshalls.

    1. Thanks Bee! Sounds like you’ve been loving some great stuff! I’ve always been curious about essential oils. A planner is always great to keep everything organised! ?
