As you know I haven’t been in Sydney for any winter festivals but I’ve been loving life over on this side of the world in Europe and making it a little festival of my own! I’m fully decked out in Asos because it’s one of my favourite online destinations for festival and travel looks because it’s affordable and has so much range!

In this look running the streets of Santorini I’ve put together a cute and fruity colourful tee, a baker boy hat, statement buckle sneakers and of course, denim. Most of my readers know I’m a huge sucker for denim and Asos has a great range from their jeans to skirts and shorts. I got the skirt because it’s perfect for the summer and sooo versatile. I especially love the raw hem to make it even more casual.

I love the vintage biker U.S.A print and then it’s been sliced up and lace up, even better! I’m all about different styles of bikinis that aren’t too mental with their tan lines haha so if you see anything please let me know!

What to do in Caye Caulker

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki1 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki2 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki3 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki4 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki5 Earlier this year I got the amazing opportunity to travel to Caye Caulker with Contiki so I’m gonna share with you a couple things about the place if you’re looking to visit this little island. Which I highly recommend you do before it becomes too crowded by tourists!

How to get there:
It’s just a short 45 minute boat ride from the main city of Belize. Once you pull up to the wharf you’re met with an endless supply of palm trees in a row, a haven of colour and the bluest and warmest waters you can find.

How to get around:
To get to your hotel or villa from the wharf you’ll find a golf cart taxi to take you to where you need to go – won’t be long at all because you drive from one end of the island to the other in about 20 minutes, you just don’t want to drag your luggage through the sand. After this I recommend hiring push bikes for your stay or golf carts if you’re not into the peddling. Getting around is so easy because there’s really only one main road but if you’re not inclined to driving or cycling it’s easy enough to get around on foot.

What to do:
- Get a small boat to take you out snorkelling (or diving) to swim in the second biggest coral reef in the world! Second only to The Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. If you can go out to ‘shark alley’ you’ll find yourself in a sea on rays and toothless sharks!! it was the most surreal and amazing moment of my whole life. A bucket list moment!

- Go on foot at night restaurant and bar hopping between all of their delicious places to eat and drink. Everywhere is so friendly and accommodating.

- Jump on a sunset yacht ride

- Buy some souvenirs and support the locals

- Explore the colourful houses and swim at the beach

Thank you to Contiki for this amazing experience! I would have never known such a place exists! Make sure you check out the video at the bottom of the post.

Baywatch

fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside With the new Baywatch movie is coming out next month featuring my future husband, Dwayne Johnson and side piece, Zac Efron. So I had to get on board and sport the ultimate Baywatch bikini – A red one piece – this one from Gooseberry fits like a glove… but check out the slideshow below to find your perfect Baywatch red one piece bikini!

One of my favourite ones is this low back dark red one from Jade Swim. If you’re after a plunging neckline like the one I’m wearing check out this one from Morgan Lane. But if you’re a little more conservative, nothing too high cut on the thigh or showing too much side boob but want the option of being more sexy with a zip front you MUST pick up this bikini from Oye Swimwear. And of course the look wouldn’t be complete without aviator sunglasses! Also in the carousel below.

This is just a little BTS teaser trailer for a shoot I did with Contiki a couple weeks ago in Caye Caulker, Belize. On this day I wore my Grana cropped tee, we hired bikes, rode around the island, swam at the beach and ended the day on a sail around the island drinking rum punch and dancing the end of our holiday into the sunset. A pretty picturesque and perfect day if you ask me for island life!

More pics to come :)

Make it your own bag

When the team at Colette by Colette Hayman told me they had a fun, new activation for bags that you can change daily without having to buy a whole new bag I knew I had to get involved. I love the idea of changing up the look of your bag with details as small as adding a pom pom, tassel or changing the strap! They have so many different colour options for all of the straps, tassels and pom poms you’ll actually freak out. You can see the whole range here.

Today I styled my classic black Colette Hayman bag with a natural beige pom pom and leopard print guitar strap to go back with my knitted shorts, tan shirt and star flatforms. Keep an eye out for my next few posts where I’ll change up this bag for a totally new look.

The Prada Everyone Asks Me About

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-kookai-rochessa prada prada prada prada prada prada Prada Velvet Astrology Cahier Bag (Leather option here) | Kookai Oyster Pants (Similar here and here) | Bella Cami (Similar here and here) | Samantha Wills Necklace | Oscar Wylee Sunglasses | Rochessa Addison Mules | Hair by Barney Martin Hair


I’m having a moment with these wide leg cropped pants from Kookai, they fit perfectly and make any outfit 10/10. I’ve paired it with a basic cami, also from Kookai as well as my Prada bag which I’ve gotten so many comments on. I’d been looking for this bag for half a year before I enlisted my amazing photographer to search for me while he was in Asia (land of the designer hang bag) and yep… he got the ONLY one they had in the store which wasn’t even on display. Lucky Me! Well, I’ve now found it online and hopefully you can still get this bad boy for yourself, in other colours too!

It’s the perfect size for me, fits my iphone 6s plus, keys, cards, cash and lipstick. So if you’re a bit of a Mary Poppins with bags this isn’t the one for you but if you like things minimal inside your purse – look no further.

My Favourite Little Black Bikinis

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-all-sisters jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-all-sisters jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-all-sisters All Sisters Bikini (Similar here) | All Sisters Bikini Bottoms (Similar here) | Sunday Somewhere Yetti Sunglasses


I admit most people don’t have as many bikinis as I do, but if you’re going to invest in one, it has to be a little black bikini. I love a good, supportive fit, made from good fabric like this one from All Sisters and below I’ve put together a slideshow of some others I also recommend.

A fun, new style I don’t yet have but is definitely on my list is this double strap cross back bikini or this ballerina inspired bikini top and lastly this mesh insert triangle bikini which looks divine (insert heart eyes emoji). Is black your favourite bikini colour or do you prefer prints and colour??

Sony Bluetooth Headphones Review

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-puma-sony jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-puma-sony jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-puma-sony jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-puma-sony jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-puma-sony jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-puma-sony Sony MDR-1000x Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones | Puma Shorts | Puma Sneakers | Puma Crop Top (black here) | Le Specs Badoozle Sunglasses


So I recently got two new styles of bluetooth headphones, in ears and over-the-head headphones (the ones featured above). I’m in the process of deciding which ones I like better but I think it’s case by case, there are scenarios where you’d prefer in ears and cases where you’d prefer over the head. So I think having both styles is justified.

These Sony headphones are like nothing else I’ve ever used. As soon as you put them on without even playing music the whole world shuts out around you. You’re in your own world and all noise is honestly cancelled out. As soon as the music plays the sound quality is perfect, I was too keen and didn’t read any instructions, I just chucked them on and connected the bluetooth to my phone (which took only 2 seconds) and then realised there are so many little movements you can do on the headphones while they’re on which can turn the sounds on and off, play the next track or turn off noise cancelling and turn on ambient sound.

If you travel a lot or spend a lot of time at your desk with headphones on I couldn’t recommend these enough. They’re also great for studio mixing (as I do a lot of video editing) as they also come with an aux cable if you need to plug it into your computer or discman (I think my grandma still uses those!)

The only thing I would have to say is maybe my head is too small and I wish it had the option to be 1cm shorter in the top as I’m at the minimum length and I feel like it could be shorter, so if you think you have a small head like me perhaps go into the store and try it on. It’s not a huge deal but just a small thing I would change about the specs if I could.
