Beauty routine

As much as my beauty routine evolves and changes over time, with old favourites becoming forgotten and new products taking centre stage, some aspects stay the same. God knows I can be lazy, but even I can find time to incorporate these four steps into my day:

1. Cleanse – cleansing my face when I wake up and before bed is the perfect way to start and end the day with that ‘clean’ feeling. My skin is far better off for it and it is the only way to remove the dirt we can’t even see from our face. I use Kheil’s, a little goes a long way.

2. Exfoliate – three times a week I use Fresh Sugar Face Polish in the shower to fight off blackheads and the like. This product is so luxurious, and the sugar melting into my face feels very calming after a long day. My next task is to make this exfoliant at home, I’ll keep you posted.

3. Moisturise – Twice a day, at least. Morning and Night and sometimes in between, my favourite product is Kheil’s Ultra Facial Cream for its non-greasy, light formula that makes my skin what it is!

4. Sunscreen – I’m not taking my chances, I apply Jurlique’s SPF 30+ it’s light and transparent, what more could you want? (Sidenote, I don’t actually spend $70 on sunscreen, thank god for family discounts)


Marant Girl

Isabel Marant makes clothing so covetable, when they become accessible (Isabel Marant for H&M) girls resemble that scene from Mean Girls.

Trend formation

Can we talk about Burberry for a minute? Christopher Bailey, you genius! The styling was centre stage in this collection; with long scarfs hung around the neck, positioned on top of printed dresses and cinched in with a thin printed belt, secured with a twist for that extra oomph. I love the idea of high fashion (that is so unattainable to most of us), being attainable with the use of simple but purposeful styling. Although you may not purchase a Burberry scarf, belt, or one of those highly coveted poncho’s, it’s childs-play to adapt this to your everyday wardrobe.

Sidenote: the mid-calf length hem is all the rage.






The cycle

Fashion is a cycle; what is new will eventually become old, and what is old will become new. This inevitable revolution of style is telling, and can be unpredictable and reinvented at any moment. And that’s what I love about it.
