Brighton Blues


Posted on

When in Melbourne this vivid seaside rainbow deserves a spot on your visit list.
 
Each time I visit Melbourne I gain a new insight and appreciation for what makes it ‘tick’. With the vibe differing greatly
between areas and times of the year. This was particularly true when I recently visited delightful Brighton for the first time.
 
This nautical rainbow awaited us post walking (also accessible via public transport) from our base in Prahran – armed with
picnic goodies from the markets no less. With each unique bathing box contributing to the whimsical mood along the beach. Much like some of my favourite Wes Anderson films. It was a popular spot tourist wise (particularly at lunchtime), however nonetheless relaxing in contrast to the CBD. Brighton is definitely somewhere I would love to revisit one early morning, with a great read in hand and take in the dreamy atmosphere.

Striped Sundays – Spring Layers


Posted on

Welcoming my favourite season in stripes and navy. Naturally.
 
It has been quite a wet start to spring in Sydney but nonetheless dreamy with gorgeous blooms lining the streets and filling up my local flower markets. In between downpours however the spring sunshine and increased temperatures have not
disappointed. Allowing for this stripe skater dress to be finally taken out for a spin. Such a flattering shape to wear that can be styled up or down with ease. Paired with my go-to navy coat, which I have worn constantly this winter.
 
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and feeling are refreshed for a productive week ahead. I will be heading off to
Melbourne next weekend and would love your coffee, brunch and market recommendations.

Happy Hands + Lips


Posted on

Kicking off the weekend with happy hands and lips. Spoiler alert: these handy hydrators actually work!
 
As a gal with uber sensitive skin the world of skincare is indeed a confusing one. So many products, ingredients and unfound promises. This is particularly true when it comes to moisturisers. Having previously tried a range of hand creams and lip balms with limited success (in some instances causing further dehydration), I am pretty chuffed with this delightful duo.
 
It’s all about pure, non-irritating ingredients.
 
Working as an Occupational Therapist regular hand hygiene reigns supreme. Needless to say my hands crave just as regular
moisturising. This organic hand cream ticks all the right boxes. Hydrating minus the grease factor with a seriously dreamy rose scent. It’s pretty great as a body cream too.
 
The gorgeous and hilarious Zoe Foster knows a thing or two when it comes to happy lips. This lip balm is indeed the real deal and stays on for the long haul. Unlike so many other products that disappear off your lips straight away. Not to mention this lip balm smells and tastes (minus the nasty, harmful chemicals) amazing! No more sad, cracked lips for me.
