Absolut Botanik Upcycle

A new restaurant, a new hair style, a new walking or driving route, a new item on the menu and in this case, a new drink.

So when Alsolut Vodka came out with this new pre-mix flavour by one of my favourite drinks Absolut Botanik I had to try it: Berry and Lemon… and now I’m hooked! Literally two of my favourite flavours, lemonade and berries! a match made in heaven.

In this post I’ve showcased the lifespan with this new bottle. I’ve taken out to a day in the park, enjoying it as I’m heading to a party with my friends and at the party and then upclying it (one of my favourite things to do as I try to minimise waste) and kept the bottle and used it as a vase for some greenery around the house!

What do you think?! and what will you try that’s new this week?

Last week I announced that FBI Fashion College students will be showcasing their end of year designs at Castle Towers from October 5th – 17th, if you haven’t seen my Part I of this post you can find it here.

In this post I am wearing designs by the young and talented Emily Parker, a gorgeous champagne satin slip with embroidered denim jacket made from repurposed denim which is amazing because I am a huge fan of recycling.

A little impromptu shoot I did with Wes while out at Bronte pool. So simple yet I love this series of images (if I say so myself) which I think is a good indicator that I’m doing what I love. After a series of unfortunate events with work that got and me down and down again I love that what I truely love doing is creating content and producing work I’m proud of with my team, a team of two. Wes and I. Hahahah.

In a world where everything you do has to be done because you’re paid for it it’s nice to step back and do something you’re not paid for a remember why you started in the first place, decide if you still love doing it or not. If you do, keep going!! If you don’t, find something else you’re good at and start that. It’s never too late to start a new career.

I did a little 3 day staycation at the gorgeous boutique Primus Hotel right in the heart of the city… and it was gorgeous! Greeted with valet parking and a luxury suite which feels like the size of a small apartment, it was warm, inviting and definitely living in luxury.

These outfit photos were taken on the sun soaked rooftop which I can’t wait to come back and visit in summer because they’ll have a fully decked out bar and an amazing pool to laze about in.

Waking up to a breakfast buffet was definitely a treat as well as coming back at 5pm for a cheeky cocktail and charcuterie board in their open, spacious ground level bar. This is definitely a gorgeous place to stay if you’re looking at being right in the heart of the city!

One of the funnest outfits I’ve ever worn to fashion week! A bright yellow faux fur coat and my favourite part is that I got to wear jeans so I was totally in my element and they had stars on them! so that theme dragged on from the previous day where I wore stars on my blazer and blouse (it was unintentional but a happy accident nonetheless).

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.

Watermelon Waterbaby

bikini-beach bikini-beach bikini-beach bikini-beach bikini-beach Clark Rubber Watermelon Float | Gooseberry So Chic Oasis Bikini | Shevoke Sunglasses


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!).

Like this cute bag I picked up in Bali, surprisingly it fits alot and I’ve gotten so many comments on it while away and on my instagram so I wanted to share with you all where to pick one up for summer as it’s perfect for the beach!

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!!
