Ella Baché – Beauty Begins With

Ella Bache Great Tan Without Sun Lotion | Keepsake Double Take Playsuit


I had a one on one with Ella Bache’s national training manager, Heather Vounnou, where she showed me in detail the ins and outs of skincare. Just in this brief meeting with this absolutely beautiful lady I got an understanding of how seriously Ella Bache takes their skincare process, animal free testings and scientifically proven results driven products. Something I can definitely get behind!

As part of their #beautybeginswith campaign I thought I’d share what I define beauty as: Beauty to me isn’t just skin deep but someone who truly respects themselves, their body and their mind. Beauty is self-confidence and beauty is rare. Respecting your body includes: regular exercise, a good beauty regime and healthy foods and drinks. Respecting yourself and your mind includes: how you treat people and how you let people treat you.

If you’re interested in learning more about beauty Ella Bache is now taking enrolments for their beauty college and are giving away daily prize packs to inspire a step towards a career in beauty.

MBFWA Day 4 – Seduce

My last look for Fashion Week Sydney wearing an embroidered mesh skirt and peplum belt with a cape top. I had such a wonderful experience at MBFWA this year meeting a bunch of new bloggers whom had come from out of town for the spectacle. I love that you know everyone from instagram but kind of forget that there’s a person behind the 9×9 grid with a seemingly much different personality than their online one.

Everyone was so lovely & friendly, and what I would love to contribute to this blogging world is gathering a community of girls (and boys) who are there to lift each other and support each other rather than bitching and competing against each other. I believe everyone has their own race to run & their own journey towards their own goals so there’s no reason to bring other people down to get there. I find this is a ripe misconception the fashion industry has, and although it definitely DOES exist, I hope not to surround myself with said persons and I hope you never find yourself in their close circle of friends.

Surround yourself will people that will only encourage & bring you up & make you a better person and do the same.

It’s been a big few days at Fashion Week! This look is from yesterday wearing and embroidered organza skirt and bomber jacket layered over wide mesh – a fantastic take on sports luxe. I’ve put it together with my fave default heels (I promise you they’re comfy I didn’t get sore feet all day!) and a perfect grey coat with turtle neck tank.  I love mixing textures and colour tones and I had alot of fun putting this together.

Last day tomorrow! I am so excited!

Had an amazing day at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week wearing stripe skirt suit from Cooper St and unashamedly contributing to the sea of lace up heels. The flurry of bloggers, models, editors, contributors and fashion people of the likes were a show in itself. I love seeing what people put together and their take on the current trends, or whatever trend they are trying to start.

Can’t wait to pump it up for day 2!

Posting this white tee look the day before Sydney Fashion Week kicks off! Because no matter how many dresses, tight skirts, wide leg culottes & stillettos I wear and post, jeans, tees and boots are still number one on the list of essentials, especially for a weekend look of brunches and days off.

I’m going to try keep the blog updated as quickly as possible with my looks over MBFWA but for more instant posts follow me on snap chat @jessiekhoo or on instagram!

So today is my 25th birthday (the day after once this post is live) and I stopped getting excited for my birthday probably after my 21st but today was made very special and I wasn’t expecting it. I don’t know if that was from low expectations or from actual amazing people in my life but either way it was lovely and I really appreciate all the people who contributed and now I can’t wait for the rest of birthday week haha.

This look I shot on the weekend is one of my default casual looks, I love flannos, jeans and boots and I have enough of all to mix and match a hundred different looks comprised of those 3 elements.

Do you have a default look? Hope you have a great birthday week with me!

Blue jeans, baby! This is my second look from my Iconic edit for denim (you can see my first one here) I’ve taken two of the same style but different washes/ colours and styled them in two different ways. This one’s alot chunkier and obviously darker in tones and mood than the white and blue but perfect for Winter and these heels… damn. I’m very particular about the type of stilettos I wear; they have to be very straight and over 11cm, none of this kitten heel business. But why? I actually don’t know, I’m just conditioned this way. Don’t judge me and I won’t judge you.

Denims for me are undeniably a key piece for all seasons, only the length and weight are the variables. As it’s trans (Autumn/ Fall) here in Sydney at the moment I’ve chosen this lightweight white denim from Atmos&Here to go with my crop top and draped coat. I’ve grown a custom to high rise jeans because it always gives you that longer leg look and you’ve heard it 100x that it’s all about layering when it comes to trans because you never know when it’s gonna get freakishly cold (for Sydney standards that’s anything below 20degrees lol).

Yay for long weekends!!!
