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.

Balmoral Breeze

A lazy Sunday having brunch by the beach in Balmoral.. now there's a tongue twister!
Had to reach for my trusty jeans and sweater combination again.. but adding a pop of red :)

Now the rest of my night is left to do uni assignments :(
Hope you all had a good weekend!

Taking care of your hair: top 5 tips

So if you haven't already noticed, I have quite thick, long hair. For the most part, I love it. But it also means that managing my locks takes a bit of work. Luckily, I don't actually do much to my hair and I try to keep it as natural as possible - I hardly straighten or curl my hair, I never tease it, and I've only ever dyed my hair once! I feel that keeping my hair as natural as possible is the reason why I've been lucky enough to have long hair that's also soft. But that doesn't mean I don't need a little help from some hair products. I love experimenting with different shampoos, conditioners and hair oils and treatments as they help to lock in the moisture and maintain a healthy look. 

I recently had a look through Sunsilk's new collection by Teddy Charles, a world-renowned hair stylist who's bringing his expertise from New York to Australia. He's collaborated with Sunsilk to create a few ranges of shampoos and conditioners to suit different hair types.
