The perfect little tanning bikini – the strapless design won’t give you over the shoulder tan lines and if you decide to sit out in the sun just undo the sleeve straps for the perfect bandeau!

Seafolly Flashback Range

So one of my favourite Aussie swimwear labels listened to you guys, they designed a range that is high cut, high rise and cheeky! Seafolly have created a super bright, on-trend range that channels the inner 80s in us. I’ve been wearing super cheeky cut bikini bottoms for a few summers now and I think that this range is a gorgeous gateway if you’re looking at moving into their cheeky cut bottom but don’t necessarily want to want a g-string cut just yet!

The high-rise side will make your legs look longer (something I definitely need standing at 165cm tall! and if you have a long torso like I do then the high waisted shape will be supr flattering as well. I chose red because I love the vibrancy but they have black if you’re more inclined.

I recommend to go up a size. I’m wearing a 12, I usually wear 10 in bikinis.

Meshki Swim

A little gold bling bling and detailing on the beach is a very welcome turn to a lot plainer styles I’ve been sporting lately. This is a gorgeous olive set, I got it true to size (small) when I usually get a size medium in bikinis because I don’t like anything too loose. The fabric is not very thick so it’s not too tight, so no need to go up a size if you’re like me and get up a size in bikinis!

The Thinnest iPhone Case EVER!

iphone-case iphone-case

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll notice that I use a lot of mini bags… meaning: mini, tiny, can’t fit anything more than a wallet, keys, lipstick if I’m lucky and of course, my iPhone! So it’s quite natural I search for the thinnest case which will still protect my phone from when I (constantly) drop it! Enter: Totallee Case. Made from durable polypropylene this case has let my oversized phone fit into everything, mini bags, clutches, pockets, belt bags and even the pockets in my leggings when I go for a run in the park! What else I love is the rose gold, a slightly more pink to the rose gold of the iPhone I have but still so cute. I got Wes a matte black one and it also looks very schmicko too.

If you look really hard you into my back catalogue of outfits in the last year you will see that I never wear navy, I have nothing against it, I just don’t. I’m usually a black or white kind of girl… but if we have to introduce it into the wardrobe I think a gorgeous top handle with a touch of navy is the right way to go. The rest of the outfit is just creams and reds so it really gives the navy all of the attention, oh and all of the gold and rose gold bling!

one of my favourite venues in Sydney

People visiting Sydney always ask me: where they should go to eat, where can they go to take pics, where is cute, where’s delicious and as much as I can recommend 1000 different venues one I can always say confidently is Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel. Although it’s a hotel, I’ve never stayed here but I’ve been here countless times to sit in the sunshine, look out onto the water, enjoy the views, the serenity, the music and enjoy their seafood and huge menu. Their nautical themed restaurant and bars are gorgeous like a holiday beach house… so I always feel like I’m on a little vacay 30 minutes away :)

Kopper and Zink Bikini

Sometimes getting out of town to explore new inspiration is the right thing to do. Believe it or not but this is Wes and I’s first swim shoot this summer! I think it’s partly because we were both away over Christmas and New Year’s and the fact that I personally haven’t been super motivated to shoot swim because I haven’t been my fittest.

Buuuuttt sometime’s it’s good to force yourself to do what you love and just cover up the pizza belly with a one piece hahah. I’m actually super obsessed with this gorgeous one-piece from Kopper and Zink. The detail is gorgeous and the cut and colour is perfect. It’s not too cheeky as it doesn’t come up too high on the sides and not too conservative, I think it’s a perfect in between if that’s what you’re looking for.

I’m actually planning a cute friends Valentine’s Day post so stay tuned!!!

I don’t actually know what Joey and I are doing for Valentines’ Day, it falls on a Wed so we’ll both be working in the day *BOO* so we’ll probably book a dinner somewhere and let’s be honest I’ll probably wear something oversized so I can eat too much as usual.

The Best TV Shows of 2017

#9. BOJACK HORSEMAN Bojack-Horseman I’ve always watched Bojack Horseman as the seasons come out. They’re smart, different, thought provoking and I love Will Arnett… especially in Hot Rodbabe, wait! babe!!! This season wasn’t as strong as the first but still very entertaining! 

#8. WOLF CREEK Wolf-Creek A major surprise!!! I watched all of season 1 and got to the end thinking ‘wow, that was really shit. I have to watch the next season right now’ and luckily for me it had just come out! So grateful I did as the second season was soooo good and so much better than the first. Mick Taylor, played by John Jarratt is menacing and does such a great job as the villain we all avoid the Northern Territory because of.

#7. MODERN FAMILY Modern-Family I’ve heard that Modern Family has gone down hill since their first few seasons but maybe I’m just really easy to please because when I want to sit down and watch a lighthearted comedy I never get disappointed with Modern Family. I’d be lying if I said I never shed a tear here or there too.

#6. MASTER OF NONE Master of None There’s a reason Aziz won a Golden Globe for this show! It’s so entertaining and captivating. My boyfriend and I went to Italy shortly after this was released and it made our trip that much better because we felt the culture of Italy and Italian people through the first few episodes of this show.

#5. ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Orange is the New Black Yes, you have to watch the first 4 seasons before you see this one and maybe it’s my fascination with what goes on inside prisons but I loved the hell out of this season. It takes place over only a few days and it’s the funniest season yet.

#4. BROOKLYN NINE NINE Brooklyn-Nine-Nine My all time favourite comedy on TV right now! I love Andy Samberg, I think he’s a genius and this show really hits the mark for me with every episode. Would also be lying if I said I didn’t shed the odd tear… but that’s what makes a good show, when they have great character building and you get emotionally invested during their highs and lows.

#3. THE SINNER The-Sinner This show was ON POINT. Again, to go with my fascination of the criminal justice system this show wasn’t a who dunnit but more of a why did she do it. The trailer shows Cora Tanetti, played by Jessica Biel, a wife and mother who brutally murders a man on the beach in the middle of the day… so many answers to why and the season explores that amazingly.

2. STRANGER THINGS Stranger-Things-Season2 I’m sure if you’re reading this you have seen Stranger Things, if you haven’t… please allocate some time to your weekend to do so, it’s gonna be raining. I love Sci- Fi and my boyfriend doesn’t but he even loved this show. I liked season 2 more than season 1.

#1. GAME OF THRONES Game-of-Thrones Are we even surprised? I’m the girl who reads up after every episode, I read and watch every review, read and listen to every theory and discuss it in my Game of Thrones chat group on iMessage all week until the next episode comes out, repeat and then when the final episode is out I think that it’s the end of the world and there is no more reason for life until the next season is out. This season wasn’t the best one but it was a darn good one with some good eggs in there. The best part was dragons, so many dragons.

Let me know what your favourite tv shows were so I can check them out!
