Brisbane International

Brisbane International – Mens Single Quaterfinal (Federer (win) vs Duckworth) and Females Single Semi-final (Sharapova (win) vs Svitolina) @ Pat Rafter Arena.

The mens game didn’t go for long but oh well we got to see Federer play!!! The female single match was more exciting.

Here’s some action shots from the match using my new 210mm lens:-

Almost Nailed it!

Did my nails almost nailed it! It seems to be a cool trend going around with having boarders only on your nails leaving the middle clear or with other colours. I gave it a go this week, not 100% perfect but it was pretty cool… Couldn’t help myself but to show them off during Thursday coffee time @Roost!

girls with fabulous hair (as in not me)

jadeschicblog

As I was shopping today with my friend Megan, I couldn’t help but notice peoples hair. One girl had her hair braided with fabulous pastel ribbons, and another lady had her hair pinned up in this gorgeous rose-like updo. With my hastily made ponytail for a day of some serious shopping, my hair felt blah. And feeling blah is bad. So I made a lookbook of all the hairstyles I need to try out this summer.

This summer I am going to try recreate the hairstyles above to step up my hair game. I promise to blog about…

ANZAC Eve Concert – Queensland Symphony Orchestra

Background: The acronym for ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers  fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I were known as Anzacs. ANZAC day, 25th April (day Anzacs landed in Gallipoli) every year, marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties and honouring the members of ANZAC who fought.

On the 24th April, I attended the ANZAC Eve Concert presented by Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and RSL (Queensland Branch), and supported by RACQ to honour current and ex-serving men and women, remembering those we have lost in past and present wars. Amazing first class performances by the QSO, Queensland Detatchment of the Royal Australian Navy Band, Brisbane Police Pipes and Drums,  Queensland Choir and the legendary Australian soprano Lisa Gasteen along with The Armed Man, A Mass for Peace and Songs of Sanctuary by Karl Jenkins, Fauré’s Requiem and music by Sibelius, Tchaikovsky and more.

Katrina’s Sparkles

 Labels: Alan Pinkus heels / Colette rectangle clutch /  Revlon “Rich Girl Red” lipstick / OPI nail polish
Last night went shopping with Katrina K (a friend with the exact same initial as me just in case anyone is wondering (not talking about myself in third person ;p)). Brought some beautiful sparkling accessories to match her outfit to attend a wedding. They were so gorgeous that I must share with everyone else.

Nails DIY

 Nails ready for Sydney MBFF! First shellac bottom coat. Second, Dior mid night blue and Kit gold sparkles (normal nail polish). Lastly, top it off with a clear shellac nail polish and top shellac coat (to dry using UV lamp). Adding shellac will help the normal nail polish to become more long lasting xo
