What I wore: sparkles, coral and a Fijian tan

Hello! How are you all? It's Friday here and I am very happy about that! 

Here's some more pics from my time in Fiji. I bought this kaftan / dress when I was backpacking in Australia with my bestie 18 months ago. We arrived in Cairns and it was BUCKETING down with tropical rain, so what did we do? Went straight to the MALL - and bear in mind we were BACKPACKING! Yes I bought this silk, sequinned number and carried it around with me for the whole trip. I fell in love with it as it's my favourite colour and it SPARKLES.  

What more can a girl need? :)
Kaftan, Forever New; Leggings, Glassons; Wedges, Hannahs; Bag (just seen), Primark;
Earrings, gift.


Gold bangles, Primark; Genuine coral beaded bracelet, I made using beads sent to me by my lovely blogging friend at Missouri Daze :); Pink ring, Diva; Starfish ring, Primark; Thick cream bangle, Diva. Nail polish, Chi Chi Bootilicious.

My bestie (who I backpacked with) bought me these amazing earrings when she arrived to stay with us in NZ :)
Excuse the scab - YUCK! Wedges, Hannahs.
Happy holidays :D
Have you ever just "had to buy something" even though you shouldn't?!

  4. Sadie, you look like such a diva! I love it! I buy things that I don't need all the time, I think everyone does - but I think it's important to treat yourself to these things every now and then! ;)

  6. The answer to your question! Yes! I find that things in store I want most come out when I have the least money. Your kaftan is gorgeous though, I love the colour and the sparkles!
