How is it almost half way through the year already! This year seems to be just flying by!
CREAM STICK MAKEUP
As you will have seen I was recently a face model for my friend Julia aka Cork & Contour at her Pinch of Peach Masterclass held at Robina Town Centre. I chat a lot with Julia about makeup and one product that she’s been using lately in her GRWM (Get Ready With Me) stories on Instagram that I’m really interested in trying, is the Mecca Max Off Duty Sticks. As I’m now mid 30s I use a liquid foundation, even with an oily T-Zone a liquid is much more flattering than a powder, and I prefer to keep the glow through my cheeks and only add a little bit of powder through my T-Zone to combat shine. The problem is that my bronzer, highlighter and blush are all powder and powder products on cream/liquid products don’t give the best results. Not only do the Mecca Max Off Duty Contour Stick, Off Duty Glow Stick and Off Duty Blush Stick (Sorbet) look beautiful when used, they’re only $18.00 each! Perfect price point for trying something new!
BLACK CROSSBODY BAG
I also need a new black crossbody bag, and am after something sleek that can be dressed up of worn casually. As you know I’m obsessed with Status Anxiety and the Succumb in Black is just divine. I also love Mimco bags and the Fantasy Crossbody is a good size and the minimal hardware keeps it versatile.
WINTER KEY FASHION PIECES
As you know I have been training at Raw By Bek since July last year and EVERY Friday is Fun Pants Friday… except my fun pants are bike pants and its getting chilly! Aimn Ocean just released their Boss Babe edit and I have fallen HARD for this chocolate/black Macchiato dogtooth print! Totally my kind of fun pants! Talking about new releases, Bohemian Traders just launched their Magnetic Wonderland edit and…. drool…. this Raglan Sleeve Ruffle Mini Dress in Magnetic Print has totally caught my eye, it would look amazing with boots, sneakers, tights, denim jacket, biker jacket… you name it! I’m also currently having a blazer and jeans moment. I think it’s because I’m trying to emulate French Girl style a bit more, it’s very similar to my personal style but a bit more streamlined. The Aria Blazer from Feather & Noise is the perfect Autumn wardrobe addition… I know it’s a beautiful petal pink, hear me out! Chocolate tones, neutrals, denim and blacks are staples in Autumn/Winter and what better way to lift a darker outfit than with a brush of blush! Complimentary to so many colours and so versatile, dress up with an all black and heels ensemble or pair with denim and sneakers for casual cool look. Lastly, 2020 gave me SUCH an appreciation for a good loungewear and tracksuit set. Something good quality and well fitting that you can add a cute pair of sneakers and boyfriend denim jacket to and NOT look like you rolled out of bed at school drop off or the grocery run. The Ilya Set from Petal & Pup in Cream is just that. The beautiful cream is so on trend this season and lends itself to tonal dressing with a camel puffer or coatigan, and the sweater would look amazing alone with jeans as well.
