Rose Gold Colour Trend

I’m absolutely obsessed with rose gold right now. It’s by far the prettiest shade of jewellery I’ve seen but the trend in rose gold bling has now spilled over to other fashion items, beauty products and even homewares. This trend is going to be around for a while to come so I’m stocking up on everything I can find. Here are the gorgeous rose gold items I’ve found so far, plus my wish list of more pinky golden goodness.  Continue Reading

Lace Fashion Trend

Lace doesn’t have to be all about girly, white a-line skirts (not that there is anything wrong with that!). I acknowledge my latest fascination with lace does come from my inner girly-girl who likes floral prints, lace trim and pink everything, but lace is so on-trend right now that you can wear it in a way that reflects your personal style, whatever that may be. The great thing with lace is that it adds an element of texture to an outfit. So, for example, let’s say you won’t wear anything but black clothes (hands up if that’s you!), adding a touch of lace with some vegan leather will make your outfit look more like Angelina Jolie and less like a M.A.C sales assistant.  Continue Reading

Seminyak Square Market Stalls Bali

It seems like a distant dream but last week I was sitting poolside with a delicious juice cocktail in the tropical surroundings of Bali. For a place that never appealed to me previously it was amazing how at peace I felt there. I have no doubt that was in no small part to the surreal accommodation choice I made (but more on that later). One thing I had absolutely no intention of doing was shopping of any kind. I went to relax and as much as I love shopping I still had fears about shopping in a country where english wasn’t a first language. But alas, I failed to stick to my guns and I did go shopping.

I discovered some great places to shop. Some you probably have heard of from every person who ever stepped foot on the island but I think I have one or two you may have never heard of. Make sure you bookmark this post for your next trip to Bali!  Continue Reading

Kim Kardashian Jessica Alba Rachel Bilson Boyfriend Jeans

This post is sponsored by Target

The Boyfriend trend has been a huge hit with celebrities, on catwalks and in high-end fashion stores for quite some time, but as someone without a supermodel body shape it has meant that even though I love the look of the trend, I couldn’t find anything that suited me. Target understands the troubles real women face with fashion trends so they teamed with their legendary style ambassador, Gok Wan, to create their own Boyfriend Collection.

With the belief anyone can pull off the Boyfriend trend, Target challenged me to create an outfit using one of their Boyfriend pieces. At first I thought they were ridiculous because I haven’t found denim to look good on me in over 3 years but I was up for a challenge. After all, my style icon, Rachel Bilson, can be seen in a boyfriend-style of denim almost every week so it has been on my shopping list for quite sometime. Challenge accepted! Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
