As I mentioned on Instagram, I’ve been wanting to post this but was really uninspired. My excuse is that my wedding is in just over 2 weeks time and all my brain power has gone to the wedding planning instead! So today I’m going to tell you a story about a girl.
Sharing with you snaps by Tom Lau (edited by yours truly). We were playing with lighting on a photoshoot where I was styling and ended up with some fabulous images I thought worth working on. While I have my photographs taken by the boyfriend all the time for the blog, it is always fun working with professionals. Tom allowed me to channel the Old Hollywood this time, but I hope I’ll get to do more studio shots soon - it was so much fun!
If you are a Sydney-based photographer and are interested to do a shoot or two, let me know! I wanna do as much as I can before I leave for UK next year :)

My third and last year of Fifties Fair was an unforgettable experience. While it rained just as we arrived, the sun quickly popped out to shine on the beautiful ladies and the dapper gents. I met so many wonderful people and here are some snaps from the day! I’m posting pictures of the lovely people I met - but for more snaps head to my FB page!

To celebrate NoraFinds’ third birthday I have teamed up Pill Jewelry for a giveaway. Pill Jewelry is a Swedish label that creates cute and kitschy jewelry range.

Last week, The Sydney Fair was back for its second year. Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Lindsay from Thrifted and Modern from the US, and this year she had invited me back to hang out and check out her beautiful stocks! Unfortunately on the Sunday that I went Lindsay fell sick and she wasn’t there, but I met the gorgeous Audre who flew in with Lindsay to help her out with the fair!
I’m so happy to present you this great giveaway in collaboration with Skechers! As you all know I am a lover of this label, owning about 5 pairs of Skechers in different styles! My latest favorite pair of Skechers is the GoWalk2. Seriously comfortable, cute and rather sporty, GoWalk2 provides the best support for my problematic feet. The fit is perfect (I usually wear a 37 and wear both 36.5 and 37 in GoWalk style) and best of all, they are machine washable! As a scientist who clocks 10,000 steps daily, I am constantly on my feet and I demand to be comfortable!
Sharing is caring, so I want you all to have a chance to win a pair for yourself! Whether you are a mother, a doctor, a nurse, or a sales assistant; a lot of you are on your feet and I want your feet to be happy. You can win a pair easily now by following the steps below. There are two pairs available to be won through the blog, but there are three additional pairs that you can win through my instagram so head there to double your chance! Opens to Australian readers only.
Time for a new giveaway! Partnering with Doll Deluxe, I am giving away a top like the one I wore on my last outfit post. The choice is up to you: do you want the red/white top, the navy/white top, or just a simple black one?
I have been abandoning the blog since I got engaged. Also because I have been occupied by work (damn science!). But I’m back with a new post series called #norafindslove. I will share my wedding planning and inspiration, and I hope you will enjoy it too! This first post will be a short one, but generally I want to share my wedding outfit ideas. Stalking wedding blogs is a dangerous thing, but I have found some great inspiration from real-life brides. If you are like me, you might consider wearing a vintage wedding dress or at least a vintage-style dress. I have found some lovely dresses online, mostly 1950s-1980s, but it’s quite rare to find an older style that is still wearable or within my budget!
Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’ve been ridiculously distracted by wedding planning (more on that soon, I promise!). I’m back to announce the winner of my Vintage Runway giveaway though! :) The lovely lady who’s got herself a $100 gift voucher is Ruby Yang! Congratulations! Thank you for everyone who has entered - keep the love coming so we can get more giveaway on this blog!
I interviewed Suzanne the owner of Vintage Runway and would like to share her interesting answers today. Please all give her virtual applauses for being so generous with her giveaway prize!
Hello lovelies! It is now February and we are lucky to have Vintage Runway sponsor another giveaway :) Suzanne the owner is offering one lucky winner a $100 gift voucher to her lovely shop Vintage Runway. It is really easy to enter and you can get up to 6 entries by following any of these options below.
So… I’m finally ready to tell the blogging world that I am engaged! My love popped the question a few weeks ago and I had to say yes. I am so lucky to have known him for almost 5 years now, and we have gone through a lot together. We did 15 months long distance and when he moved to Sydney to be with me I knew I could never let him go. I consider myself lucky to have found someone who loves and supports me through highs and lows.
