The $30 Denim Shorts I’ve Worn To Death

I never thought I’d say this but these Glassons jean shorts have been my favourite piece of my summer wardrobe so far… and they were only $30!! They’re the perfect fit, not too tight, not too loose, the perfect amount of rips and the off-white is so on point that it goes with every summer top – denim shirts, crop tops, t-shirts, white button ups and bikini tops!

I’m thinking of getting a second pair just in case I lose these, if they’re in the wash or slowly die over time… and at $30 that’s not too bad of an investment! Does anyone else do that?!

What’s the Statement Colour this Season?

I don’t think it’s possible to feel sexier in a bikini than a one piece Baywatch style red bikini. I’ve showcased some of my favourite red bikinis here before but if you’re after something a little more conservative than plunging necklines and high rise sides, then this Bonds bikini will be perfect for you (there is more coverage on the bum than how I’ve styled it).

So get shopping and feel sexy in red this summer!

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.

The bikini colour you need for this summer

bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear Zulu and Zephyr Easterly Harness Bikini (black here) (similar here)


Green bikinis are one of those things this season that everyone is jumping onto. Well when I say green it’s more olive or khaki, a natural green. I love this colour because as we go into the middle of the summer season your tan is a little deeper and the khaki colour will really compliment your skin tone. I naturally have an olive undertone in my tan but I believe no matter what tone your skin is it can pull off this gorgeous bikini colour.

Try this one from Jade Swim with thin triangle straps, or this strapless bikini with bow detail or my peronal fave from Kiini.

Just checking in! hope you’re all well and loving life. Thought I’d share these unpublished photos Wes and I took while we were on the Central coast. I love this little series because the beach was almost completely empty and I was actually struggling with catching any light (it was about 6pm) and the wind was gale force. But despite this we still managed to do what we love and do best which is capture photos and enjoy the beach.

Hope you’re all having the best weekend and are ready to wrap up the year!!

Was such a fun shoot and great way to document our time in Bali and capture how we don’t ever really take anything too seriously and we’re just out to have a lot of fun, see beautiful places and meet wonderful people. We’re already planning our trip back!

One Piece Bikinis For Your Bust Type

swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island Karamelon Bikini | Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars | Triwa Sunnies


I’m just gonna put it out there… I’m a bit bikini obsessed. I love a good quality bikini and that includes the perfect little black one piece bikini that should be staple in everyone’s beach wardrobe. I’m going to talk you through your options and what’s best for your bust shape.

Smaller chest: Your traditionally trained stylist with tell you to go for something with ruffles or bows or something that has embellishment on the chest to accentuate your bust. To me that’s fine, but personally I am a much more minimal bikini wearer and I don’t ever wear bows or frills on anything. I would embrace not having a ridiculous amount of cleavage and opt for a super low cut bikini like this one which has padding in it. The beauty of not having out there cleavage means you can get away with this style without looking slutty. Another alternative is a style with a alot of panel detailing on the bust. Super fashion forward.

Bigger Chest: I’d say I fall into this category (being a DD) and although I love the high neck style it actually doesn’t make your chest look smaller or flatter your bust, but in fact tends to make it look bigger with more of a monoboob vibe. Unless that’s the look you’re going for then I’d suggest a low cut style, but not too low cut (because from experience your boobs fall right out!). I love backless styles and if you don’t feel like you need the ‘support’ then give this style a go but there are also plenty of one-piece styles that have the in-built bra with a much more conservative back.

Somewhere in between: You’re the babes that can get away with any of the above. Try a balconette style or one of these sexy front zip bikinis which you can adjust to whatever mood you’re in <insert winky face>

Is Active Swim In?

bondi-sands-bikini bondi-sands-bikini bondi-sands-bikini bondi-sands-bikini Missguided Mesh Bikini Set (white here) | Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Tan


One of the big trends I’m seeing this upcoming summer season is the Active Swim Trend. Basically this means you can actually go swimming in the bikini and not just dive under a wave and emerge from said wave clutching your boobs because your straps have untied (true story). It means you can do a class of hot yoga or yoga on the beach then cool off with a swim. It means you can pair one of those cute tops in the slider below with your favourite leggings or shorts and hit the gym. Do you now see how these are both practical and cute?

Luckily for me I spent the weekend at The Sydney Harbour Marriott and they have a gorgeous indoor swimming pool – perfect for a winter swim, the water was sooo warm and it was completely empty! I also felt it neccesary to add a layer of my new Bondi Sands Liquid Gold tanner. The formula doesn’t feel as ‘heavy’ or ‘sticky’ as their foam or lotion but it’s not as moisturising and needs to be applied more liberally, but the results are gorgeous and even once you’ve got the application down pat. Hot Tip: Use a tanning mitt!!!

A Bikini A Day

bondi-sands ABAD x Missguided Bandage Ladder Trim Bikini | Bondi Sands Liquid Gold


Undefinably I’m easily obsessed with bikinis and this one is right up there. It’s so unique because it’s very different to your nylon, neoprene and crochet bikini. It’s knitted and basically the Herve Leger of bikinis. It’s that type of bodycon knit you used to wear.

I had to top up my winter skin with this new Bondi Sands liquid told tanner which seems to be a faster drying formula to their other mouses and lotions I’ve tried. So far so good but the colour doesn’t seem to be as deep as the other two. Perhaps with another layer or just being more generous I could have achieved that effect.

Let me know if you’d like me to do a sunless tan review on YouTube of all the brands I’ve tried to help guide you to the best choice for you!
