I’ve never done a post like this before but as a self-proclaimed foodie I feel as though it’s something I can add to my every growing list of things I do on this blog – Share my favourite recipes & foods with you. Truth be told I don’t cook. I can cook. But I don’t cook. I’d prefer to go out and experience other people’s dishes and cuisines.
So when Jurlique sent me this incredible orange, carrot and almond cake made by Jacqueline Alwill of Brown Paper Nutrition as part of their Wellness Initiative I had to share it with you all. I went through a hardcore baking phase in my early 20s spending every weekend and night experimenting with new cake, brownie and muffin recipes so I understand the difficulty it is getting that perfect ratio of ingredients to keep the flavour of the cake interesting and moist at the same time (yes I said moist). So if you’re keen to bake a healthy(ish) cake that’s moist and delicious then give it a go!
If you’ve followed me you’d know my hair is usually flaming red. The little mermaid style. I’ve had the red in my hair for about four years now so after months (literally months) of thinking about a change I finally did it. With the help of the Barney Martin team in Surry Hills, of course.
Before you decide to make any major changes to your hair colour I highly recommend going into the salon for a consultation to give your colourist/ stylist an idea of what you’re after so they can assess whether it’s achievable and if so how long it’s going to take and the process & quote. Red is a stubborn colour so I knew it would take more than one session to get it out and turn into a more natural honey/ blonde/ caramel colour. So this is the colour after stripping the red out (twice) and applying a gentle bleach to my already bleached ends. You can see the red still coming through in the mid sections and my roots are still dark so we will go back and brighten them up later this week – exciting!
Last week I got the opportunity to go to Bali with 4 other amazing bloggers and the A Brand team. The experience was incredible, the weather was perfect and the girls made the whole trip the best weekend getaway ever.
From in-house massages, warm oceans, endless tacos and margaritas I think Bali is a stunning location to travel to if you’re not looking to fork out heaps of cash and experience the beautiful Indonesian culture. I undoubtedly will be heading back to this destination to see more of the landscapes and to try more of the delicious food!
Post breakfast faux walk and squat to show you how I styled my Adidas originals. I probably would never wear the track pants, top and jacket together unless I were going to a Royal Tenenbaums dress up party but I do love the look with the white shorts and booties… because as you all know I’m a bit partial to showing off a bit of leg and tan I got from Bali <insert sunglass smile face emoji>.
If you want to turn heads you need to get this little lace number, it’s been tried and tested and it definitely works (lol). It’s one of the cutest playsuits I’ve ever worn and I’m in love with it. In this look I’ve worn it with my longline blazer to add a little something for a going out look, I’ve dressed it down by rolling the sleeves up to my elbows. I also kept it simple with a colour matching barely there strappy sandal. They’re my go-to and never let me down so I also suggest investing in a couple colours, I’ll be getting nude next! They’re also surprisingly comfortable considering they’re a stiletto. My goodness I could talk about shoes for hours so I will stop here.
It’s one of those days I’m feeling androgynous but wanna keep it femme so I wore a lace cami and I chose to wear these red reflector sunnies over black ones to help break up the darkness. Going into spring wearing all black gets tricky but you just need to choose the right fabrics or right cuts (generally not too tight) so you’re not sweating all over the place.
Shot this impromptu look on the weekend at sundown wearing this gorgeous lace romper from Ministry Of Style. You know you’re blessed when you can chill out in a summer look in Winter… Although admittedly I was frozen when the sun actually set.
Somedays you want to be oversized everything. It’s a mood thing. I didn’t want this look to be too heavy so I matched my oversized men’s style shirt with a sheer chiffon palazzo pant. All topped off this a pair of oversized sunnies, of course!
It’s no secret I spend all my spare time at the beach so it just felt right to hit up the ocean when shooting my new fave baby blue jeans from A brand. The fit is perfect and it’s great for the short chicks like me. Okay, maybe they’re meant to be ankle grazing but it works out as normal for me lol.
