The perfect little tanning bikini – the strapless design won’t give you over the shoulder tan lines and if you decide to sit out in the sun just undo the sleeve straps for the perfect bandeau!

Seafolly Flashback Range

So one of my favourite Aussie swimwear labels listened to you guys, they designed a range that is high cut, high rise and cheeky! Seafolly have created a super bright, on-trend range that channels the inner 80s in us. I’ve been wearing super cheeky cut bikini bottoms for a few summers now and I think that this range is a gorgeous gateway if you’re looking at moving into their cheeky cut bottom but don’t necessarily want to want a g-string cut just yet!

The high-rise side will make your legs look longer (something I definitely need standing at 165cm tall! and if you have a long torso like I do then the high waisted shape will be supr flattering as well. I chose red because I love the vibrancy but they have black if you’re more inclined.

I recommend to go up a size. I’m wearing a 12, I usually wear 10 in bikinis.

Kopper and Zink Bikini

Sometimes getting out of town to explore new inspiration is the right thing to do. Believe it or not but this is Wes and I’s first swim shoot this summer! I think it’s partly because we were both away over Christmas and New Year’s and the fact that I personally haven’t been super motivated to shoot swim because I haven’t been my fittest.

Buuuuttt sometime’s it’s good to force yourself to do what you love and just cover up the pizza belly with a one piece hahah. I’m actually super obsessed with this gorgeous one-piece from Kopper and Zink. The detail is gorgeous and the cut and colour is perfect. It’s not too cheeky as it doesn’t come up too high on the sides and not too conservative, I think it’s a perfect in between if that’s what you’re looking for.

10 days until Valentine’s Day so I’m getting into the spirit of all things cute and red and love and blahblahblah. As if this wouldn’t be the cutest outfit to wear on a picnic with your ~bae~ on Valentine’s Day, casual yet cute ya know.

I’m actually planning a cute friends Valentine’s Day post so stay tuned!!!

I don’t actually know what Joey and I are doing for Valentines’ Day, it falls on a Wed so we’ll both be working in the day *BOO* so we’ll probably book a dinner somewhere and let’s be honest I’ll probably wear something oversized so I can eat too much as usual.

A new take on Double Denim! I love this denim bag and denim jacket combo it’s so lush. I’m really into a blue and pink colour palette right now so I’m feeling super fresh haha.

Also, I’m obsessed with these Converse Sneakers. They have a bit of a platform which magically makes your legs suuuuper long! I don’t think anyone should be going through their life without a pair of  Converse Sneakers, and if you already have one then get another! and make it platform!!! You won’t regret it.

The Dress Kendall Jenner Sold Me

It’s not often I get sold on clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE clothes and they all make me happy… but I don’t actually get sold on clothes the way I was with this photo here. There’s something so simple yet so sexy about this mini polka dot dress! What I like most is that it’s not ‘black and white’ it’s natural with black dots, a little bit of a more elevated colour way than black and white which can sometimes come across as quite young.

Now… if only I had the legs and body of Victoria’s Secret model, Kendall Jenner!! hahaha

Mink Pink Co-ordination

Channel your inner Cher with this clueless inspired outfit I’ve put together minus the sweater vest and high socks, but I think this is a nice little homage without going full 90s! I love this statement corduroy set. Wear the jacket or skirt separately or together – either way you’re going to turn heads in this shocking pink ensemble.

One of the best things about spring is the transition from jeans to skirt and coats to jackets. Being able to have your legs out without a 24/7 sweat moustache is my favourite time of the year! Haha so take advantage, Sydney-siders!

Absolut Botanik Upcycle

A lot of people like to stick with what they know and are comfortable with, but I challenge you to try new things as you may be pleasantly surprised from time to time. 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). Then I kept the bottle and used it as a vase for some greenery around the house!

What do you think?! And what will you try out 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 a gorgeous champagne satin slip with embroidered denim jacket made from repurposed denim (which is amazing because I am a huge fan of recycling), designs by the young and talented Emily Parker.

Hotel Palisade

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-hotel-palisade2 Hotel Palisade


I’m a huge fan of a staycation in your own city. There’s nothing like seeing this beautiful town from another point of view, especially when that view is at the top of the town! With only eight rooms in total, Hotel Palisade is truely one of the most unique hotels you’ll ever stay in. There’s no room service or breakfast but it does have one of the most delicious rooftop restaurants I’ve ever been to, Henry Deane. The best part is you don’t have to be a guest at the hotel to visit, I recommend the scallops and froze!

Hotel Palisade is also in prime position for all Uber Eats delivery services (which I may have dabbled in), otherwise you can just stroll down to Barangaroo 10 minutes down the road and dine at any of the restaurants or cafes there as well as tonnes of shopping!

Every single room has a stunning view and the staff are so helpful and passionate about what they do which is always a nice family to be a part of, even if for a night.

So if you’re looking at a unique Sydney hotel experience, you can’t beat Hotel Palisade. You’re right in the city but not in the CBD so it’s never noisy with sirens, cars, or foot traffic. A peaceful getaway in the heart of Sydney everyone should experience at least once.
