Photo Diary: Winters Retreat | CreativeGesture

Hey Everyone, We made a trip to the shore this weekend to watch the sunset as the winter sun was absolutely breathtaking. It almost felt like the begging of summer however still a wee bit to cold to put on the flip flops and bikini and hit the beach for a swim. As we were going out for Thai food later that evening I decided to dress semi casual/dressy pairing my favourite lace up wedges with my gold detailed jeggings and animal print slouch top.Also to tie the outfit together I added a touch of gold to the upper half of my outfit pairing my new gold necklace to match the detailing of the jeggings. Perfecto and WARM! I had such an awesome day hanging out with my boyfriend at the beach and meeting up with friends for a great night out. 
Hope you enjoyed this blog post, I think i will plan on doing more of these photo diaries in future and I really enjoy sharing a wee bit of my life with you plus I loved getting out and taking photos. So much fun!

Bye for now

Fashion Inspiration - Casual Chic - Maxis, Crop Tops & Wedges | CreativeGesture

Hey Everyone, I have really been loving all of these new trends showing up left right and centre at the moment and decided I would dedicate a small blog post to a few of the cute and casual chic styles I have been loving on the internet recently. I actually just purchased my first maxi skirt and dress the other day, being 5ft 1 I am a little nervous to see what it looks like on... fingers crossed I don't look like a midget in a sheet. (Haha)
Fashion Finds Direct Links Listed Below 
Ombre Maxi Dress : Tobi
Cut Out Crop Top: Tobi
Crochet Wedges: Hannahs
Belted Lace Maxi Skirt: Boohoo
Denim Jacket: Asos

Similar Styes I love! (All Linkable)

I think Maxis and crop tops look so gorgeous together paired with wedges and a denim jacket cover up. Perfect for a day at the beach or shopping! I am already planning my outfits for summer even though we have just stepped into winter over here in New Zealand. Oh well layering is super easy with all of these styles as well.
See you in my next blog post

Sorbet Cosmetics - Solid Shampoo Bars Sorbet Sampler - Mini Haul & Review | CreativeGesture

Hey Everyone, I am finally back into the swing of blogging on the regular, however I seem to have developed a pretty bad addiction for Sorbet Cosmetics Solid Shampoo Bars, I really just cant get enough of it!! Slowly but surely I am converting my whole family to from liquid to solid shampoo and I have also heard from a few of my lovely subscribers that I have started to convert them also. #Woops! I wanted to do a small blog post of Sorbets Sampler Box of Solid Shampoos before I send this wee bad boy away to a relative, just to show you all what the sampler looks like and my first impressions on the product. 
As I stated in my last blog I am in love with Sorbet Solid Shampoos, I never use liquid shampoo anymore, I have truly been converted.. its my holy grail! I love the getting gifts and therefore I also love giving gifts, especially when its something that I would love to be given. Before buying the Heali Kiwi balm I was going to buy the Sorbet sampler for myself, I think its such a great idea of deciding on which Sorbet Solid to purchase, plus it gives you a feel for the product before committing. You get five sample sizes Sorbet Solids in each Sorbet Sampler box which retails at $25 NZD each. Every Sorbet Sampler box contains a a selection of random Sorbet Solid Shampoos, this box contained some of the more popular bars including St Clements, Frizz Wrangler and also some I am less familiar with like Sweet and Sexy. I am regretting not buying myself a box of samplers now, they look so cute! 
Lastly I wanted to briefly show you the size of the box in comparison to the size of my hand just so you can get some idea of the sorbet sampler in size before I wrap it all up and send it away. I was actually quite surprised, I didn't expect it to be this large for some reason (not that thats a bad thing!) This blog post was only meant to be short as I have already blogged about Sorbet recently but I think the Sorbet samplers are the perfect way of getting to know weather or not solid shampoo is for you, it also in my case makes a great wee present! 

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, I have a video coming soon on my youtube channel CreativeGesture with everything you need to know on Sorbet Solid Shampoos including how to use and store them, so watch this space. Thats it for now, leave a comment below if you have any questions you would like answers.
