The Luxe for Less

Good Morning Readers,

Now you may have read the tittle and thought to yourself, 'What is he going on about?'. Well, i've been after some nice new wrist accessories, but just without the whooping, heart attack price tags. This is where the Australian Company ThePeachBox comes into the picture. They are located in Australia, but offer International shipping (to selected countries) and supply jewellery for that chic, modern and edgy customer.  

I've only had the chance to order one piece off them and haven't had the chance to take it off, it's become a permanent resident on my current wrist at this moment. What I ordered was the 'Twisted Nail Bangle' which for those of you who know their high end jewellery, understand that an original cartier piece as such has a hefty price tag included. The shipping was around 3-4 days, where opening the parcel, there was a black box with the print 'ThePeachBox' in metallic silver font. Upon opening the box, the bracelet was within a small black drawstring bag. I almost forgot to mention, these accessories are stainless steel, which means that they don't rust under water! BONUS

Now this is the best part! The bracelet cost me $30.60 with Free Delivery. Cause, if you sign-up today to ThePeachBox's VIP Mailing List, you get not only 10% off your first purchase, but also Free Delivery. Pretty exciting news, right?
Whether you're after that Kylie Jenner cartier arm look? or just simply after something with a little edge, ThePeachBox is definitely the place to look into. Also, don't forget to have a look into their Instagram account as they are currently holding an ultimate giveaway! 

I'd love to hear what you guys purchased!

What's In The Bag Today?

Hello Readers,

So you may have read the tittle and wondered what this blog post is going to be about? So, as the tittle suggest, I've gone out and bought something new, which in the case today is a fragrance. 

Dolce & Gabbana - Intenso

I'm currently obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana fragrances and knew that this one had to be added to the collection. The scent reminds me of POUR HOMME, while they have similar characteristics, they are still very different. It's packaged in a dark velvet box, alongside the dark, gold lettered bottle definitely carries out an elegant appeal.

You really don't expect the scent to be so light as it's not expected from the dark rich colours, but it's really fresh and clean. Where the scents longevity is very good and as it dries down, the tobacco and woody notes begin to come through, creating an impressive scent.

What I'm Watching On Netflix

When it's cold outside, it's time to stay and play indoors. Since Australia has Netflix, going on a well deserved Netflix binge is more than acceptable, and i'll tell you something, enough is never enough! Cozying up in those comfortable PJ's with a nice cup of hot chocolate, what more could a person ask for?

Ok, so I'm not the most original person out there, just gonna admit it now, but you can never go wrong with watching what Netflix is recommending. It's always hard to find something new out there that makes your lips quiver or even tear jerk your mind, but in saying this, these are two shows that I've been watching that personally I enjoy. So here we go:

 Gossip Girl
Manhattan's Upper East Side couldn't be anymore fascinating, full of scandals that Gossip Girl shares for the world's eye to read. This television series has many seasons to go through, so I suggest making quite a lot of time, for those who want to get into the series. Reaching Season Two has taken me quite a while, but man oh man, I could go through the night watching episode after episode. 

• Charmed
It's a classic TV Series, that makes you wish you had magical powers. These three (four) sister's, the Charmed One's, use their powers to fight evil, day in and day out. With a total of 8 seasons, anyone who is going in for a marathon will need to get comfortable, overload on snacks and be ready for the time of your life.

Netflix is full of everything that your wildest dreams would think of, with me studying full time as well, I don't have a lot of time to marathon through Netflix as yet, but during the semester break i'll be taking full advantage of my Netflix subscription.

I'd love to hear what you guys are watching

Little Known Ways to DeStress

We can all admit it, that life these day's is stressful. With constant struggle of growing up, moving out etc, life as we know it, never reflects the dream life. Moving on to where I thought i'd share a few tips  that help me avoid that nagging old soul 'stress'. 


I know this seems like the last thing that someone looking to reduce their stress levels would be appealed towards, but maintaining a goal and the gratitude that comes from the completion of a single goals, will boost anyone's self-esteem. It may be a small goal, for example, setting dates to get each part of your university assignment completed by, this as whole will let you think more about the dates you have set, so that you do not leave your whole assignment the day before its due.
Just remember to never set your goals out too big, as this will only cause you to constantly overthink your day and what more needs to be done, rather than pacing out time as it goes.
What I personally find personally hand is a Goals book, which is always a good way to keep all your goals, big or small, organised, where it shows you all your goals, completed or to be completed, within one area. 


Ok, so lately i've been going to weekly yoga classes and i've noticed such a difference in my stress levels. If you didn't already know, I'm currently studying my second year of my degree and also juggle a part-time job, squeezing in revision and assignments where possible. 
With yoga, its all about calming the mind, with meditation, I find that forming a programme aids in making sure that you've got the time of the day to complete a session of your own length. As yoga is a form of exercise, you are getting those endorphins to aid stress-relief and aid in mood. Giving your mind time off from thinking will ultimately reduce your stress levels.

To Do List

Think about that satisfaction you get when crossing an item off your to do list. Keeping a to do list, gives you the oppurtunity to create a balance in a busy schedule to see where you stand and what needs to be completed. A simple list and tick off system works for me, but some people might like to go out and buy notebooks that are 'to do list' themed, whatever the case, it's what you personally prefer. 
Now the secret is, never start your to do list with big or heavy tasks, that being like 'Read the whole Harry Potter Collection', start with smaller tasks, such as creating a category for an assignment, then underneath listing the tasks that need to be completed, where you can tick off and see how far you are into the task, rather than just labelling it 'university assignment' and then having to complete the whole assignment and tick it off when completed. The idea of creating sub-categories, gives you the peace of mind that you are at least moving towards completing a task that you are working on. 

I'd love to hear from you guys if you are using any of these tools, but also if you've got any strategies that you personally use and find useful?
