2016: A Year in Review

And that ladies and gentlemen, was 2016. Wow what a rollercoaster of a year! This year brought with it so many ups and downs, cycles, sub-cycles and more. There were milestones and challenges, highs and lows and everything in between. It has been a year of hard work, dedication and self-improvement. I have grown and…

Reflections & Introspections

As the year draws to a close, it’s only natural for us to reflect on the past year and introspect about the forthcoming one. While preparing the 2016 wrap-up for Trashcan Rebellion, I came across this incredible questionnaire that I had to share. Print it, write down your answers and keep this piece of paper…

Tow Away Zone

When it comes to bright, bold colours, I’m always all in. For me, the brighter the better. So it may come as no surprise then, that I was instantly sold on this dress (by colour alone) before even trying it on. Apple green has been a long time favourite of mine and this dress blatantly capitalises…

Office Dress Code

Or lack thereof. A few weeks back I had an interview with a financial consulting company and had nothing to wear. I am a big time believer in the power of first impressions and being someone who works in the fashion industry, I certainly wanted to dress to impress. I remember the utter shock on…

Casual Coolness

When a typical day consists of university, running errands and some form of exercise, I most likely opt for easy-to-wear pieces that maximise comfort and practicality and don’t compromise on style. This black dress has come to solve many of these kinds of style ruts. The combination of the short sleeves and low back with…

Munro Drive

Remember a few weeks back when I told you there was more to come from Josh and I? Well the wait is over my friends. You may remember this dress from this post a while back. I mentioned that we had done the look two ways and you would have to wait to see the second version….

Colour Curated

This dress is one of my favourite go-to pieces. It’s constantly on rotation and I love how its simplicity speaks volumes. It’s my saving grace when I have to quickly throw something on and be out the door – without looking like I have put in zero effort. The combination of the lightweight and flowy…

How to Deal With Exam Stress

Being in the heat of exam season, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to share this post. Stress is something that affects us all – whether it be work, school or family related. Knowing how to deal with stress and channel your energy is the ultimate key. Here are some of my personal…

Olive Obsession

As a child, I absolutely hated the colour olive green. Regardless of the countless times my mother promised me that this particular green brought out the colour in my eyes, it made me feel uncomfortable in ways I can’t explain. As I become more fashion-aware, I find myself gravitating towards more neutral colours including the now…

Starstruck

When I spotted this dress in the shops a few weeks back, I knew in that instant that I was sold. A dress like this fills a huge void in my wardrobe – a modest piece of clothing that is neither boring nor dull. With its appropriate length and wide shoulder-covering sleeves, I initially picked…

Feel Good Friday

Because TGIF was created for a reason. If this outfit could be any day of the week, it would be a Friday. The bright, bold top with the relaxed 70’s-inspired wide leg pants represent all our Friday feels – happiness, excitement, the need to party, the need to chill. (You get where I’m going with…
