It’s not a secret that I’m a sucker for a little bikini and I loved this tangerine/ coral number from Beginning boutique. The tiny straps are perfect for tanning (not that my fake tan isn’t enough). Also, because it’s creeping into winter I’m not actually going into the water, instead I’m also faking that and spraying my locks with sea salt spray! Something I do daily whether the beach is involved or not to add texture to my naturally straight hair.

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.

I use beauty products every day of my life but I don’t tell you guys about them enough. Going into winter in Australia it’s nice to keep to fresh glow on your skin that you’re not getting from the sun and one of my fave brands I use day in and out is Pure Tan. Not only do their faux tanners give you a gorgeous glow but they apply really well and set really well so you’re not sitting in your bedroom or bathroom naked for hours for it to dry. Obviously I don’t fake tan everyday but I do use their Pure Tan 100% Pure Coconut Oil every single day all over my body, as a moisturiser replacement. It’s a great natural scent that applies soft and smooth and also helps with stretch marks and scars. I definitely recommend trying coconut oil!

For my hair I’ve been using the huge range from De Lorenzo. I only wash my hair once a week but use their Cherry Red Nova Fusion Shampoo to keep my colour bright. To get the beachy hair look you need to try De Lorenzo Ocean Mist Spray and De Lorenzo Dry Texture Spray after putting a little bit of texture in with a heat wand or curler. Of course if you’re applying heat to your hair you need to prime it with a heat protector spray – I recommend their argan oil heat spray.

Have fun, ladies! (and gents!)

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.

Musq

I do all of my own make up for all my shoots so now I’m a whiz and can do my face up in about 5 minutes (add on 5-10 minutes for lashes depending on how coordinated I am on the day). So I love sourcing new and easy to use make up like Musq. I love their products because they’re oil free and lightweight. The mineral bronzer is easy to build up with a shimmer and light enough to dust all over the face (nose, under the chin and forehead) just make sure you’re using the right brush. I use a kabuki brush for my cheeks and a powder or blush brush for the face.

On my lips I’ve used a very moisturising and bold lip colour from Stefan make up. I like the formula of this lipstick because it doesn’t need too many layers to build up and it stays on for a long time (WARNING: it comes off bright red and shimmery when you kiss someone haha)

I love going to the spa and getting pampered as much as the next girly girl but let’s face the reality of it… we don’t all have the time nor the means or money to get a fortnightly mani & pedi, make up done every time we have an event or a facial every few months so that’s why I love trying new at home products that are just as good as the spa. Especially when they’re natural and organic like this Detoxifying Facial Mask. I love how you can actually feel the clay detoxing your skin as it dries. Soo relaxing.
