Hello and welcome to my first personal style & Lifestyle blog! My name is Annabel (you can call me Annie too) originally from UK and now living in Sydney, Australia where everything is uber pricey. I have come to terms with the fact that the retail shops over here don’t even come close to the quality and value for money that the shops do in England. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Aussie designers for their simplicity and chic styling but I just can’t afford or yet convince myself that it’s a good idea to spend a good $100+ on one piece of clothing. I’ve always been a high street (with a bit of vintage thrown in) kind of fan so, I’ve done a bit of research and decided to share my hunt to find awesome bargains in Australia on this site.
I will also be showing you everyday things like finding decent bars and restaurants in Sydney and also relevant expat type stuff like how to apply for a visa to live over here and the obvious comparisons between Sydney and London. I’m also going to delve into a bit of beauty and show you how I bleach my own hair to where I buy my beauty products from.
One thing I MUST mention is I am incredibly passionate about travelling the world. You know, I did meet my boyfriend in India a few years back which is the reason why I’m living in Sydney now. I have travelled the world a few times especially over the last three years and I recently come back from a year travelling mainly throughout Africa. I will show you some insight in how to travel alone or with others, why you shouldn’t do an organised tour and the most importantly, what clothes to pack that will last a good amount of time in a backpack.
OK, so you get the idea of what this blog is about now. Don’t be scared to post your opinions of my opinions and I would love to hear from people living in Australia – where on earth did you get your outfits from and what little gems have you found living in this huge country?
Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you all soon.
Londoner In Sydney!
