Goodmorning it’s Sunday !

Good morning Sydney and beautiful subscribers worldwide !

Happy Sunday to you all !

The weather here in Sydney isn’t looking its best today but oh boy it was super hot yesterday !

So Hot that my best friend and I headed down to our favourite beach had a beautiful lunch at our favourite place (lifesaver cafe – the most scrumptious satay chicken wrap you will ever had !!!!) and even managed to stroll down and visit some amazing boutiques ( post coming soon).

Checkout our pictures below and see what we wore on this sizzling hot spring day.

Brought to you by one of my besties favourite brands LEE.

She wears  the Born Free cut out Muscle Tank.

Such a great edgy, festival piece paired with your Lee denim cut-offs to give you a hot spring look.

image

It has an awesome cut out low scoop back and laser cut details all over the garment with a cool American Eagle placement !!!

WE LOVE IT !

Top : $59.95 from Lee

Denim cut-offs Also from Lee

 

I wear something with the same kind of festival vibe, just a little bit different.

I’m wearing a cool skull and lace detailed racer back tank. (which you totally can’t see much of) Loose fit for that hot spring/summer day and an Urban Originals Hat.

I think people underestimate the hat alot -  It’s such a wonderful piece to accessorise with especially if you are going to spend time under the sun.

You can look hot and be cautious at the same time !

I’ve thrown on just a basic loose knit Cardigan to cover up from the sun as I am on some new skincare and medication for my acne which I will also share with you below !

Top: not quite sure – it’s a perk from work !

Cardigan : Target Knits

Hat: Urban Originals Australia.

(whistling because the hat said so!)

Yesterday was extremely hot – At some point it was 30 degrees !!!… That’s pretty hot for the first week of spring guys. (but it was soooo lovely ! )

As the weather gets warmer we must all remember to SLIP SLOP SLAP right ? I have been trying this new skincare product. -For those of you who don’t know – I have had trouble with my skin and acne for a very long time. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING…. Well NUMEROUS THINGS !!!! and they just don’t work.

I’ve tried dozens of antibiotics, topical medication, the pill, proactive, lots of different products and medicine but nothing has shown more results than ZO skin health by Zein Obagi. This has probably got to be the most expensive skincare I have ever bought but I must say my skin feels good, my face feels good, and everything is slowly going away, it is doing wonders ! AND the great thing is that even if you don’t have acne it is still very good for your skin.

Now, because there products are expensive my local chemist had a giftpack promotion, so I thought I’d give it a go and I suggest the same to anyone who is going to try it.

My Experience :

It is my second week using this product and I’m not going to lie, within the first couple of days of using it, I was already feeling good.

The pack I bought has an exfoliating cleanser, this is the first step. When I say exfoliating I don’t mean harsh granules of sand rubbing against your skin making it all red and horrible. It is a smooth clear gel with little beads that explode or get mushed whilst you are applying it. It does a wonderful job at clearing any dirt and oil from your face and doesn’t leave it feeling dry.

The next step, (also in the pack) Offects, TE pads Acne Pore Treatment. This product Reduces sebum production, removes dead skin cells and deep-cleans congested pores using 2% salicylic acid. It has special Botanical extracts that calm inflammation and soothe irritation, it’s Recommended for oily skin and breakouts. You simply wipe your face with one of these focusing on problem areas until the pad starts to get dry.

This third product I LOVVVVVEEEEEE !!!!!! It is the Oclipse sunscreen and primer spf30 duo ! I use it under my foundation and it gives me an even coverage as well as insanely protecting my skin from that harsh sun.

I have been using these products every day and can already see such great differences. I have few acne popping up here and there, and all that’s left are the blemishes, and that will slowly fade away with the use of ZO skin healths products.

If you don’t know of a good primer or moisturiser to use for your skin, I absolutely recommend this to everyone ! Anyone at any age can use it, you can wear it under your foundation or on its own. It ahs plenty of vitamins and nutrients and your skin will love you for looking after it.

They have a great range of products dedicated to anti-aging, skin health and acne so please do check out the rest of their products. Click here to visit their site.

 

 

Well, I’m off for Some Sunday fun regardless of the weather !

Stay tuned this week as I finally bring you the shots from spring/summer !

Monochrome is in !

Monochrome is in !

Cardigans, colour blocked dresses, patterns and prints, basic little black garments – This Trend is absolutely rocking it – It’s everywhere.

So where do you go from here ?

First of all you bring back the beautiful plain pieces in your wardrobe – yes like that basic tee and every legging you always wear..

and second of all you read this and be a little inspired for your next outfit.

Lucky for you I’ve included a variety of pieces and even linked them in this post.

So if you like.. you buy = ]

Let’s start off with a few dresses.

image

Piper Lane Colour blocked Dress

Colour Blocked Black and White dresses are so hot Right now !

There are a number of body con styles and two-in-one styles too.

Contrast darker side panels and/or a darker bottom to slim down the figure.

image

If you want to go for something with a print you can just keep in mind body proportions and print scale.

If you are more fuller on the top go for something with a small scale print.

If you don’t have much of a top you can pull off larger scaled prints.

or you could even take out the little black dress again – it always saves the day… or should I say night ?

image

If you are more of a 2 piece person the beauty of this minimalist trend is that you can wear the most “plainest” garments and you will still be perfectly on trend.

image

Wear a plain top like this one from Zara for a sleek day to night time look or add this crisp white waistcoat to sophisticate your everyday casual look.

image

Black and white printed pants are really popular this season too so it makes it that much easier to find.

image

Harem pants are always comfy – I’m sure everyone has a pair or even a pair of plain leggings.

image

High-waist shorts are a great addition to any look as you can wear them with plain black or patterned stockings or if the weather isn’t too cold –just by itself.

image

There are also a number of skirts in different cuts and prints.

image

Nookie – Slim fit mini skirt with a black and white sequin animal print.

image

Stripes are also very on-trend. This pencil skirt is from Portman’s. It has a very bold striped print and black contrast side front panels.

The plain black tee

image

To add some excitement to your basic black tee go for something a little edgy or different.

The above style has turned up cuffs and an asymmetrical hem – perfect when paired with some contrast wet-look or printed leggings.

image

something a bit more extreme… ?

image

If you follow more the grunge, urban style of fashion perhaps some white leather ?

One Teaspoon’s Bowie Leather Jacket is a great essential for the wardrobe.

image

Classic Biker style with a asymmetrical zip detailing and zip pockets.

V-shaped croc leather detail on the back – makes you Fall in love ❤

Label Three of Something have also nailed it with these two lovely pieces.

Both very wearable for a casual day or night time look.

image

Battalion Bomber Jacket from label Three Of Something ( above)

Samurai kimono also by Three Of Something(below)

image

and lastly as I always say… There is a Trench for every trend and this is it…

image

Traditional trench style with a striped lining twist.

The great thing about this jacket is that it is not only completely relevant to the season and the trend but you can definitely mix it up with your primary blues and greens for later on.

Such a beautiful wearable piece – A Must-Have !

 

For Jewellery Coco Liberace always have it spot on with their Chunky Gold and silver necklaces and wrist wear.

Or if you are after something a bit more timeless then there is only one place to go for that…Tiffany and Co.
