The Usual Suspects

The usual suspects that have pride of place in my bathroom.
 
Since sharing my summer beauty essentials there has been some interest in my day to day routine. If I had to describe my beauty habits in one word it would have to be minimalist.
 
This is particularly true when it comes to my sensitive skincare routine where less is definitely more. In fact besides
regular moisturising, SPF and the occasional cleanse (I’m talking 1-2 times a week) it likes to be left well alone. Having tried out products from a variety of price points take it from me that when it comes to skincare you do not necessarily get what you pay for. Much like my beloved Sukin favourites. Organic, carbon neutral with a wonderful price point. Tick. Tick. Tick. The only critique would have to be the lack of sun protection, which I am currently remedying by mixing in some SPF50+.
 
When it comes to my daily scent Daisy Eau So Fresh has been a longtime favourite. Light, fruity and of course fresh. Marc sure knows his scents.

Autumn Blues

Easing into sweater season at fashion week was a breeze with this blue on blue situation. This amazing sweater provided just the right kind of relaxed structure that these printed shorts (on high rotation this long weekend) needed. Balanced out by the comfiest mid heel sandals am I yet to come across. Seriously!
 
Coincidentally the final day of fashion week was all about favourites from wearing my beloved blue hues, to the dreamy Alice McCall show and much needed quality time with fellow local and interstate blogger pals. As much as I love the inspirational whirlwind that fashion week brings moments such as the latter are the most treasured.

Going backstage to celebrate Alice’s ten years in the business was hands down my favourite experience from fashion week.
 
From the moment I received this delightful confetti situation I found myself imagining what would be in store for the Alice McCall girl this spring/summer. No doubt the collection would showcase Alice’s fantastic eye for prints and colour that are beautifully balanced by wearable silhouettes. Surpassing my imagination ten fold Alice took me on a journey from start to
finish that was tied in beautifully by the jumbled dreams installation.
 
The amazing energy backstage was palpable and fitting for a such a fun collection featuring futuristic prints, glitter shorts, statement clutches and delightful pastels. Not to mention some serious seventies beauty (sparkly waves for days) that I’m sure would have Lux Lisbon’s stamp of approval. A true celebration of Alice’s fun, modern yet wearable aesthetic.
