Sweater season

Sweater season is here! Well, it's been here for quite a while now, but I'm loving the transeasonal weather we've been having in Sydney lately. Spring is nearly here!

A simple, comfortable and borderline preppy outfit for today. I love when shirts and collars peek out of jumpers - it makes a casual outfit look more clean and put together. And the combination of black, white and denim can never go wrong! Just add a bit of edge with some metal cap booties and you're good to go :)

Hope you're all having a fab week!

Winter beauty essential: rose hip oil

It seems like this rain is never ending.. and even though Spring is just around the corner, it still feels like we're stuck in the thick of winter! Colder months usually mean dry skin season in the beauty books, but I've found the perfect solution!

I've always been a fan of rose hip oil, and I've been using it regularly for the past few years, but I love mixing it up and trying a new brand every now and then. Some brands have caused my skin to break out and others have moisturised and cleared my skin. I guess it all depends on finding the right product for your skin type.

This time, I've tested out Kosmea certified organic rose hip oil. I've been using it for the past few days, and I'm loving it! I'd definitely say that a little goes a long way with this product. I have naturally oily skin, so I only use a few small drops (one on each cheek, forehead and nose) and it works really well. It moisturises my skin without making it too oily (usually causing me to break out), and it's quite light, which I love. I use it before going to bed at night, and in the morning my skin feel super soft. Oh, and it smells great too!

Overall, I'd definitely recommend it. Rose hip oil of any kind is always great for your skin, especially in colder months where skin tends to get on the dry side. The best part is that you can test out Kosmea rose hip oil for yourself for as little as $12.95!

Hope you guys enjoy the photos :) Beware: I'm not wearing any makeup! haha

Bonfire Candles

A weekend delivery that's too good not to share with you all!
I received my very first Bonfire candle the other day, and boy, am I in love with the scent! I ordered the Sweet Slice fragrance - a pleasant mix of butterscotch and sweet vanilla wafers. If only you could smell it through the screen! There's really nothing better than getting cosy on a lazy Sunday, watching movies and burning a sweet Bonfire candle.. Heaven!

Bonfire Candle Co. is a local Sydney-based company (created by my sister!) specialising in amazing soy scented candles. Not only are they all made from 100% natural soy and other ingredients, but they're also hand poured right here in Sydney! So you know you're getting quality poured into every jar. And how gorgeous is the packaging?! 

To find out more, and take a look at the complete range of candles on offer, check out their website:

#PickMeUpNova - Mercedes SLG AMG!

Hey guys! Had to share this with you all... too exciting not to!

Over the weekend, I had the best taxi ride of my life - I got picked up in a Mercedes SLG AMG! Thanks to the team at Nova and Fitzy & Wippa, I was the lucky last customer chosen to take a ride in one of the world's most expensive taxis.. What a beauty. With a price tag of $500,000 and an engine that sounded like it could tear up the streets, who wouldn't want to be chauffeured in this amazing beast!? Thanks Nova!

England photo diary - Part 2 (Windsor, Bath & Stonehenge)

Hey guys! I'm back with the last photo diary for England :) (France is next!)
Here are the pics from a day tour to Windsor Castle, the Roman Baths and Stonehenge. It was really nice to get out of London for a short while and explore the surrounding cities.. It gave me a little peek of what England has to offer, and I loved it! I would say the city of Bath was my favourite. There were gorgeous views of the city from every street corner and all the apartments were of the same architectural style and stone colour - loved the consistency!

Having said that, Windsor was also a gorgeous city.. cute pubs and restaurants with a real English feel to it. And... the Queen was at Windsor Castle on the same day I went there!! The flag (which represents the Queen's presence) was flying high, which meant she was in da building!! *ghetto voice* ;)

Hope you guys enjoy the photo diary!
And stay tuned for France next!

If you haven't already, be sure to check out my last photo diary of London :)

Off the shoulder

Here's a bit of mid-week outfit inspiration :)

I'm loving all things off the shoulder at the moment, and it's actually a first for me.. I've never really been a big fan of this look in the past, but I've seen it done in so many different ways (bohemian, casual, classy, trendy etc.), that it's actually making me want to try it out! My favourite look would have to be an off the shoulder LBD - sophisticated and perfect for a night out.

What's your favourite off the shoulder style? Casual? Classy?

England photo diary - Part 1 (London)

It's finally here! The first of many, many more photo diaries to come from adventures in England and Europe :)

I thought I'd split England up into 2 photo diaries - the first is of London only, and the second will be of Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge. It just makes it easier to digest, rather than having 100 photos all thrown into 1 blog post. I stayed a total of 8 days in London - 4 days before my Europe tour started, and another 4 days after the tour ended, before coming home. The first 4 days we explored the entire city of London (which is what you'll see in the photos in this blog post) and last 4 days we went further out and explored Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge (which will be in part 2).
