.: dress c/o fame and partners | wedges, borrowed | clutch, (gifted from friend) bardot :.

Hey guys! I was so lucky to be sent this dress (called 'Angel Dust') from Fame & Partners a couple weeks back and I honestly feel like 10x classier than I actually am, and a bride of some sort. I am absolutely in love with the sheer panels along the back and the volume in the skirt is amazing! 
I must say I've never owned such a classy dress but I think white based outfits are some of my favourites because they always look so put together. This dress reminds me of the Year 10 formal that is coming up for me in a few months and is getting me in the mood to prepare for that! 

Anyway, how have you all been? School's back and after a really rough past week with frantic essay writing, I have finally felt calmer this week since there's nothing really due yet. Something I am really looking forward to is seeing The 1975 in concert in a week and a half! Is anyone else attending their Sydney concert? I can't wait to see Matty Healy in real life eep! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week and there will be another blog post soon!
Ciao for now,

P.S. I am having troubles with my .com domain so I am deciding whether I want to keep it or not. For now, I will be using .blogspot.com/ sorry for the confusion!

.: shirt, topshop | skort, paper heart | booties, lipstik :.

Heyo everyone! 

So, wow, I have finally bought myself a .com domain! This is somewhat weird but exciting, and I suddenly feel so much more official than I was before even though nothing has changed ha ha. 
BUT ALSO. I need some help, when going through to my blog using my old url (http://shannisideup.blogspot.com/) there's some random redirect page and I just want it to auto-redirect to my new URL so yeah, if anyone could let me know how to get rid of that (in the comments) that would be greaaaat! 

Anyway, I've had a real big adoration for cropped tops ever since a few months ago and my collection is slowly growing. I found this cute top from Topshop the other day and wow I absolutely love the colour and the texture! I haven't been finding any nice basic tops lately but this one was definitely a nice addition. 
A random thing to do with today's post is this Grill'd burger bag, AND IT LOOKS SO ODD, but yes it was my lunch, but how nice is the packaging? Sydney-siders, you guys should definitely check out Grill'd if you're into fancy burgers (this is not sponsored by the way HAHAHAH) and aesthetically appealing packaging. 

I cannot believe today is the last day of school holidays and I am not prepared of what's to come in the next school term. Though, I have promised to not let myself be overcome by my stress/sorrow today but I want to say good luck to everyone! And hope that no one freaks out too much! 

I hope you all have a great week,

I just also realised that by getting a new domain, it might be a good idea to follow me on this bloglovin link! 
Thank you!

P.S. The song in the title today is "Living In Another World" by Neon Trees, but wow it is my mood song at the moment and you guys all need to listen to it. Here is the link.

photos taken by me
and the photos of me were taken by Sam

Hey everyone! 
So, remember where I mentioned setting an alarm for 4:15am in my last post? Well, these beauties of mother nature was what I was preparing myself for. Vaucluse at sunset and Cronulla at sunrise. It was so worth it and I'm not sure if my photos did the scenery justice. 

I traveled by bus and train to meet my friend Sam at the train station, then head off onto another bus to Cronulla Beach. Funnily, the Cronulla photos were from the sunrise (I would've sorted the photos to be Cronulla then Vaucluse but I already put Vaucluse first in the title photo before I realised eep!) and it was just a beautiful dark orange creeping up from the horizon at first light, and then the sky faded to it's light blue as the sun rose. There were people swimming in the ocean at 5am (it's the middle of winter!) and I honestly wish I was brave enough to jump into the ocean during sunrise too! 

The wait for the sunset (9am-3pm) was spent at my friend Fiona's house, where we basically mucked around for 6 hours, until we had to leave again to head towards Vaucluse. 
Unfortunately, there were clouds blocking the sun so we could only catch a bit of it that peeked out from the clouds. The sky faded slowly from light blue to dark, but oh my gosh, the bay we were at (Shark Bay) was so so nice. It was this small beach that had greeny blue water and sadly I didn't have appropriate clothing or else I would've jumped into the water, though it is actually the perfect beach to visit when the weather gets warmer! Also, how awesome is that sandcastle? It was built upon some rocks at the far side of the bay! 

Anyway I hope you all enjoyed seeing these photos because I sure did enjoy taking photos and witnessing it! 

Hope you're all well,
Ciao for now!
