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!
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.
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.
The perfect little statement bag is here. Sending good vibes through quilted gold and chains! I’m obsessed with this little love heart cross over bag from Colette by Colette Hayman, it adds personality and glamour to any look whether it’s casual or cocktail. If the love heart shape isn’t for you I recommend this metal gold quilted clutch for a more classic look.
I’ve teamed it with a thigh high split lace skirt and oversized tee for a laid back, going out look with strappy khaki heels from Billini.
I love roses, I love mom jeans and I love embroidered denim… so these jeans scream ‘me’ right now haha. I put these epic mom jeans together with my 90′s inspired double crop top duo, a crushed velvet cami over a white fitted tee. Layered over that is a velvet necklace with crystal from Samantha Wills. To keep it summer and basic I had chucked on my favourite slides of the season and signature round sunnies. There’s no better way than getting good use out of basics by layering them and putting them with denim.
There’s something about blue and tan being worn together, it’s such a perfect combo. I’m labelling this as the cutest summer outfit I’ve put together this whole season! (big call but not actually important) It must be a combination of the colours, the a-line mini skirt, the little peplum top that’s layered over it and these gorgeous leather gladiator sandals. Add big round sunnies for dramatic effect.
Hope you’re all having the best start to February!
I thought I’d get a little festive with this crimson velvet slip number keeping it merry and bright but also sexy and casual with black booties and mirrored sunnies. I’m never fully on party mode lately and I rarely get dressed up and when I do I have to bring it back down to earth somehow with sneakers or boots haha.
I wanted to shoot a bikini a little differently so I did as I always do on a hot, sunny day and blow up a floatie! I got this super cute watermelon blow up from Clark Rubber and if you wanted you can get a whole fruit salad including limes and strawberries. The next one I’m going to invest in is the big blow up boat – they’re so fun out on the bay with a bunch of friends and an esky! Seriously my favourite thing to do on New Years Eve.
The best thing about this as a Christmas gift is that it’s perfect for all summer long, I could imagine me on Christmas day after lunch, blowing it up in the backyard and using it as an air mattress as some younger sibling family member just stands there spraying a hose into the air and letting the cold water fall onto you…. the bliss… That or you’re lucky enough to have a pool for it’s intended use (which my family don’t!).
There’s no secret I am at the beach every single week at least a few times and of course I have the whole packing your stuff down pat. So alongside my beach towel I’ll pack sunnies, a pair of thongs (flip flops), a book, my phone, a water bottle and most importantly sunscreen. This striped faux leather beach bag from Colette by Colette Hayman fits everything perfectly as well as makes any outfit 10x cuter.
I got to spend the day with three of my favourite girls, Helen, Ash and Kiara for Glassons… we went on a fun road trip up to Palm Beach and got to cruise with this amazing vintage 1950s Chevvy! I had such an amazing time and I never take for granted that I get to do the things I love with the best girls around me!
In this look I’m wearing my fave Glassons denim shorts, a lace racer back bralette and layered over it I’ve got this awesome oversized mesh top. Mesh tees are the biggest things right now, they’re perfect for summer because you can layer over bikinis, bralettes as well as singlet tops and it looks different every time. I have it tied up but it also looks great tucked in or undone just hanging over a pair of mom or skinny jeans and sneakers for a more tom boy look.
So get yourself into Glassons because they have literally every style of clothing you need and you can get a whole outfit for under $100!
