Summer skin: Vaseline Australia



Summer is around the corner and that means wearing a whole lot of shorts, singlets and of course... bikinis! We're all going to be showing quite a bit of skin in the season ahead so it's important to keep it soft, hydrated, moisturised and looking radiant.

Now I know a lot of people usually reach straight for the natural tan body moisturisers that give a bronzed look after a few applications, but I've found them to be quite orange on my skin (which is naturally very white). I also wanted a body moisturiser that I could use daily with no build-up tanning effect, but rather leave a natural glow on my skin.

So, I picked up the new Vaseline cocoa glow body moisturiser and absolutely love it. It smells heavenly and is super absorbent, which comes in handy when you're in a rush to get dressed (as I always am). It's also great value for money because just one pump of this lotion pretty much covers my whole leg - impressive! It also didn't leave any greasy texture on the skin and I could still smell it on me at the end of the day! Smooth summer skin, here I come ;)

Sequin shorts


Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend :) I'm ready to tackle another busy week ahead tomorrow! But I'm neck-deep in assignments so I'm keeping this post short and sweet today. I decided to finally whip out these sequin shorts - I bought them about 6 months ago, but have never worn them (story of my life with most of the clothes in my wardrobe lol). I love the lace detailing on the hemline.. and the sequins really take the shorts up a notch - it can be easily styled down for a daytime look or perfect for a night out.. I can't wait to pair these shorts with a crop top and some heels! And yes, I'm working on my tan... just need some free time to head to the beach more..

Ocean stripes



A few weeks ago my family and I took a trip to Bondi Icebergs for lunch. I've been wanting to try this place out for a long time since I've heard really good reviews on it. So glad I finally went! What an amazing spot. Perfect views of Bondi beach on a clear (but cold) day while getting stuck into some seriously delicious seafood. As you're about to see in the photos below, the quality of their food is amazing - it's full of flavour, displayed beautifully and very satisfying! This is definitely a restaurant I'd come back to. Sipping on cocktails on a warm summer's afternoon - yep, sounds like heaven. Oh, and I though it would be fitting to wear blue (you know... to match the ocean and all) ;)

Sensitive skin: top 5 tips


Sensitive skin is a real issue for many people (up to 50% of women report having it) so dealing with it is crucial. I don't really have super sensitive skin, but my face definitely reacts immediately to harsh beauty products that are full of chemicals. I either break out or get really dry, flaky skin. To solve this problem and help keep my face looking as fresh and clean as possible,  I follow a few simple tips and use some trusty products which I'll be sharing with you guys today.
