Daybreaker

thumb_IMG_4516_1024

Well, thats one thing ticked off my bucket list – a sunrise photoshoot. It was an absolutely breathtaking morning when my friend Lou and I decided to head out to Curl Curl beach bright and early on a Saturday.

For this shoot, I really wanted to capture who Lou was, bring out her individuality, her style, her loves, her personality – the beach was the perfect setting for this. In our ever-changing world of trends, technology, celebrities etc we often loose sight of whats real to us. We forget the beauty in our individuality, in our own style.

I hope you enjoy the photos and start thinking about what your style is. Special thanks to Lou for modelling and to Ally who assisted with the shoot.

Balmain Fall 16

new 6

Balmain was an absolute showstopper at Paris Fashion Week. With a host of big names, Rousteing pulled out all the stops for the fall collection even turning brunettes to blonde and blondes to brunettes!

Oliver Rousteing within this collection embodied all the elements I adore within the fashion world and maybe thats why I loved the collection so so much! –  femininity, frivolity, richness of  paris, strong, modern classic looks combined with a pastel prettiness.

The exquisite detailing, fur, ruffles and strong design lines made for a wondrous collection that  captivated and intrigued audiences further into this powerhouse brand.

Power Play

thumb_DSC07354_1024

I’ve always been intrigued and inspired by power dressing, I mean it’s amazing what a good pair of tailored pants or a fitted suit jacket can do to enhance or change a certain style or look. Power dressing is in reality dressing more like men but how do you stay true to your own style? Stay true to being a women? The answer – make it your own! Mix and match different styles and trends with the power dressing essentials including tailored pants, suit jacket, business shirt etc.

However, think of women like Anna Wintour! She is an absolute goddess  within the  power dressing world because she makes it her own! Many of you I am sure are familiar with her  signature look – a pretty, feminine floral dress with the slick bob and of course those infamous black sunnies! Does she need to dress like a man to feel and be successful? I think not! Its really all about what you put on to make you feel powerful as well as feeling comfortable within your own skin – for me this is my true powerhouse outfit.

I decided I wanted to twist power dressing into something strong, feminine,  sophisticated and classic while adding a regal, military touch.

These eye shades are my absolute summer essentials, especially for my colour eyes which are hazel/green. So if any of you have the same you should have a palette with these colours because they complement and really make green eyes pop.

Summer Classic

thumb_DSC07676_1024

Summer is here and I am so ready! I must admit that summer is definitely my favourite season. Summer to me mean beach, sunnies, hats, shorts, cotton dresses and overall comfortable fashions. I can get up throw on a beach dress and a pair of sunnies and be ready to go in 10 minutes (well almost).

This outfit is a classic, cool,  chic, comfortable summer look that is so easy to find in the stores. Ruffled tops are everywhere at the moment as a result of it being recently used within many  designers collections (Dion Lee, Balmain, Gucci, Ellery, Christopher Kane).

Hope this gives a bit of Summer outfit inspo!

Ok so Bali was amazing. The trip = humidity, colours, lovely people, tourists, swimming, flowers, yummy food, beaches, seafood, snorkelling, rainbow fish, shopping, bike rides, new flavours, monkeys, squirrels, birds, fish, hinduism, yoga, massage, fish spas, tanned skin, crazy roads and an overall incredible experience!

A photo can say a thousand words so I think I will leave it up to them to explain the rest of the trip, enjoy!

All Eyes on you

IMG_0929

This look I created on Jemima is very much a look that can be worn in the day or at night. I used darker purples on the outside of the eye and blended it into more of a light gold on the inside of the eye. The cooler brown eye suits darker purple tones as I have used, blues and browns, these complement and intensify this particular eye colour. For the eye liner I used quite a thin line with a slight flick and brought it round under the eye. Be careful with liner and you have to know what works for your eye shape.  In order to keep the eye open and not darken it too much I stopped the line halfway underneath the eye but I could have made it shorter.

IMG_0893Vicky’s cool blue eyes look beautiful with this colour combination of peachy pinks, greys in the outer corner and light golds. Cool blue eyes generally suit orange/bronzy shades, silvers and light to dark blues. I used a similar eye liner to Jemima’s however Vicky’s was slightly thicker, the liner really allowed her eyes to pop and stand out. I always always always use a white pencil on the inner corners of the eye, this creates the illusion of bigger eyes, its a fab technique to use.

Hope this gives you some inspiration to try some new looks out!

Vogue Fashion Night Out

_MG_0725

Sydney’s city was buzzing last night! Everyone and I mean EVERYONE came out to enjoy Vogue’s Fashion Night Out. It is such an awesome event enabling all of  Sydney’s fashionistas to join together and have some fun sharing each others passions of fashion, beauty and of course shopping!

I was lucky enough to go the the JTone launch party hosted by Vogue and David Jones. I think one word I would use to describe it was pink. Very pink. There were thousands of pink balloons, an ice cream counter, a fairy floss machine, DJ, nail bar, hair braiding bar and lots of scummy food. It was the ultimate girls slumber party with a few topless waiters, roller blading chicks, dancers and cocktails thrown in. A few special guests also joined in the celebrations, Aussie model Montana Cox, Alli Simpson and model/blogger Sjana Elise! It was a fabulous event!

Every corner I turned there were faced I recognised including bloggers, designers, presenters and the Vogue team, excitement! All the photos were taken by me so I hope you enjoy them!
