Snapped this look while wine tasting in the vineyards in El Cielo, Mexico. A seriously stunning location where the mountains light up pink at dusk and the wine is bottomless. I’d love to travel more and more of this country, it’s culture and people are what makes it.
I was fortunate enough to spend the long weekend in Baja Mar in Mexico which is just under a couple hours drive down from San Diego. A few friends of mine went down for a very fantastic Mexican/ Norwegian wedding fiesta and one of my good friends who I was travelling with happened to be their wedding photographer so I volunteered as tribute to be his location scout buddy (lol). Here are some of the results.
The first time I climbed Hollywood Hills in 2013 we got very, very lost. This time… we also kind of got lost. The dirt roads all look the same and if you’re unfamiliar with the hills then they kind of all look the same too. Oh and the fun part is that there’s no cell phone reception so you’re basically on your own, great fun! However, if you successfully find yourself at sunset at the top of the hill it will be a moment you will never forget.
Los Angeles at sunset is picture perfect and a traveller’s dream. I was fortunate enough to have spent the day with a fellow Aussie blogger, Jess Stein of Tuula and did this short walk with her and a few other friends of ours. This is a must do if you’re visiting LA.
Just checking in from sunny Los Angeles, California! I haven’t had a whole heap of time to connect to wifi and post but I’m shooting up a whole bunch on my snapchat (@jessiekhoo) and my instagram so please follow me there if you’re not already.
I’m travelling with about 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 friends, will be more tomorrow so it’s been a massive roller coaster of fun, here we did a little peruse of Rodeo Drive, I went to my first NBA game, we trekked the Hollywood Hills, went into the observatory at night and watched the stars and overlooked the city lights. More recently we have driven to San Diego and tomorrow we’re off to Mexico!
Hopefully I’ll find some internet (and time) down there so I can upload more
Since I was in my early teens my mum would take me into Myer or DJs and I’d stand around and watch her shop for hours for new face and skin products. Here I was forced to learn the fundamentals of cleanse, tone, moisturise …and repeat twice a day.
Since then I’ve never skipped a day, and I love taking care of the skin on my face and body regularly because if you don’t do it now it’ll show sooner rather than later… and I love the feeling of smooth skin and I’m obsessed with exfoliating!
So when I tried the Skinfood exfoliating body bar I thought it was completely genius. It’s the perfect ratio of lather and scrub and you don’t need a body brush or towel scrub. I’ve been following this up with the Skinfood body butter after the shower to really lock in the moisture. I couldn’t stress more how important it is to moisturise after your showers!
I haven’t photoshopped my skin at all in this post because I wanted to keep the article as genuine at possible and to show that I truly believe that giving your skin alot of attention is 100% necessary and I couldn’t recommend the products at Skinfood more for it.
Weather took a turn so I opted out of a dress and into something a little more androgynous (AKA warm). I am loving high waisted, cropped trousers because they’re comfy, chic and different to your average pair of jeans which generally makes you look super casual if you just want to wear a tee.
I put it together with my new Dapper Bristol from Daniel Wellington which is actually a men’s watch but works with the androgynous look I’m channelling. The DW team are even offering my readers 15% off their site if you use the code ‘JESSIEKHOO‘* at checkout. They’re a timeless, affordable timepiece in my opinion so you won’t regret investing in one.
Wore this super cute crochet dress this weekend during the perfect warmth of Sydney’s spring. The apron neck and backless design are 100% spot on for this season’s trends. I didn’t wear short skirts during autumn and winter but I think they’re gonna be making a big appearance in my wardrobe over the next few months… excited in an understatement. Woo!
This look is a dress is disguise – a top and shorts to be precise… oh the magic of separates. I have worn this top with so much else, denim shorts, pants, skirts and the outfit looks completely different every time. The waist tie doesn’t even have to always go around the front. So invest in your separates to stretch out your wardrobe, ladies!
There’s nothing better than supporting our home grown talent. Mimi Elashiry put this collection together with Glue Store and it’s super. freaking. cute. Make sure you check it out before Summer hits & they’re all gone.
Everyone knows that LBDs are a staple but if you’re as vain as me (yes I said it) then you don’t like being caught in the same outfit twice. This is why accessories are so important. This is inclusive of sunglasses, heels and necklaces. This, however, is a body chain and it really steps up an entire new element to the LBD outfit to make people look twice. The best part is that you can use the body chain again with a casual outfit like a t-shirt and denims to make it a little more interesting, or again with an oversized swing dress and boots for a boho look. Options are endless!
