OCRF White Shirt Campaign | Witchery

Every year Witchery releases a range of White Shirts and Silver jewellery, to raise awareness and funds for Ovarian Cancer.

100% of the gross proceeds of every white shirt sold, goes directly to OCRF and 10% of every purchase from the OCRF silver collection is donated.

Since starting this campaign, Witchery has already raised over 5 Million Dollars for Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. These funds have enabled the employment of five full time dedicated research scientists. Most women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are already in the advance stages of the disease, which is a direct result of late diagnoses.

The White shirt campaign is a fantastic opportunity to help raise funds and awareness, whilst looking fabulous at the same time.

“Which shirt will be your pick this season?”

LED LIGHT THERAPY

At the ripe young age of 39 (ok I’m turning 39 in 10 days) lol I’m all about taking care of this maybe not so well oiled machine, I call my body!

But I have been trying to take care of my skin more so in the past few years, so I can prolong having to go under the knife, or just look like a old leather hand bag! Lets be clear…. I love Summer, I don’t use additional sunscreen that isn’t already in my moisturiser or foundation and I’m all about having a natural tan, for as long as I can. 

I never get facials, but I was hearing chatter about Microdermabrasion and this new Yellow Light treatment from Laser Clinics Australia. 
I have been seeing Danai and her gorgeous team from LCA at Wollongong Central for just over two years now and trust them with not just my laser hair removal, but my skin care regime as well.
So if I was going to have something new done, they would be my people to do it. 

I went in last Saturday and was ready for my first Microdermabrasion, which was then followed by the new Yellow Light treatment.

Microdermabrasion is an intensive yet gentle exfoliation treatment that evens, tones and rejuvenates the skin… basically removing all dead skin, removing pimples and congested pores like black heads. I don’t have overally troubled skin, but I do have oily skin and I find working under harsh lights all day, I get little sweat pimples….however I have always had congestion on my nose and chin. Not overally visible, but I know they’re there. 
From $50 per treatment. 

Yellow Light (aka LED Light Therapy) is a healing light that penetrates deep in to the layers of skin causing rejuvenation, cell repair and increased circulation… a perfect treatment to have, after an intensive treatment. 
$69 per treatment.

I’m now 3 days after my treatment and I noticed the following day, that my skin was glowing. I felt that my skin was a little dull and definitely not smooth to touch before my treatment, but as I said it wasn’t overally noticeable. But I couldn’t stop touching my skin the following day. I was able to go makeup free, which was nice and just continued with my normal skin care regime. The past two days back to work and I have noticed that my skin definitely as a more natural shine to it and my congested nose is DEFINITELY so much clearer and smoother. To be honest, I can’t wait to go again in about a week and so and have another treatment! 

Here’s a little behind the scenes of how the treatment went. xo

POLO IN THE CITY SYDNEY 2016

On Saturday 12th November, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Land Rover Polo in the City as a VIP Media Guest in Sydney.

It was my second year attending the Polo, which is also known as the ever so glamorous and chic sister to Racing. 
The day is a star studded event, with the top A-Listers and who’s who on the invitation list, so I was honoured to be involved with such an event again!

Definitely not a repeat of last year, the weather was absolutely gorgeous and for some even too HOT!! But all in all it ended up being a fantastic event. The energy and excitement on the day, definitely stood out for all.

Leading up to the day in Sydney, I wrote about the Fashion Do’s and Don’ts about what to wear to the POLO and Style Inspirations for Men and Women, taken at last year’s event…… and on the day, it was all about the FASHION oh and of course, the POLO!!

A massive thank you to Land Rover POLO IN THE CITY for the invitation, it was an absolute pleasure attending for my second year in a row and capturing the fashion and excitement of the day!

The Polo is a annual event, held in each major city throughout Australia and definitely a ‘MUST EVENT’ to add to the calendar!

Here’s a selection of images that I took on the day x enjoy!

PREPARING FOR POLO IN THE CITY SYDNEY 2016

polo-in-the-city

It’s that gorgeous time of the year again, where the well known prestigious event is only days away… POLO IN THE CITY SYDNEY 2016!

I am so thrilled to be attending LANDROVER POLO IN THE CITY  Sydney this year, as a VIP Media Guest again… and of course the first thing that came to mind, is ‘What will I wear?’

POLO FASHION, is the ever so glamorous and chic sister to Racing Fashion and the approach of what to wear, should be the same.

FOR THE LADIES…
Think understated elegance, with delicate fabrics and styles.
Lace in ivory, cream or neutral colours, pops of colour and prints, and a touch of monochrome are some of the go to options.

STYLES CAN INCLUDE… soft tailored lines, playsuits, jumpsuits, long gorgeous printed maxi dresses, an easy shift dress, a boho inspired, off the shoulder top and maxi skirt and of course, lets not forget the pant of the season.. a gorgeous delicate culotte!
Polo Fashion, is all about comfort but that shouldn’t affect the glamour!

SHOES…
Polo is NOT the day, to be wearing your latest stiletto purchase. So please opt for a gorgeous leather sandal, comfortable wedge or chunky heel option.

ACCESSORIES…
Sunglasses and a decent size handbag is a MUST…Head wear is not paramount, however a wide brim hat will not only protect you from a day in the sun, but also add some glamour to your outfit! Please NO fascinators!
Jewellery should be complementary to your gorgeous day outfit. Thin delicate pieces, in rose gold, gold or silver are a fashion must have at the moment. However if you’re drawn to more of a statement piece, then opt for it in either gorgeous silver, gold. stones or pops of colour and leave the sparkly diamonte statements pieces at home.

HAIR AND MAKEUP… 
Hair and makeup should be kept natural, but a pop of lip colour can never go astray!

FOR THE MEN…
Just like the ladies, Polo Fashion for men should be approached in the same way! A smart casual look is essential, there is no need to suit up!
The Polo is an opportunity to show off a little more of your personality. Have fun with pops of colour, print on print and add a point of difference.

STYLES CAN INCLUDE… A coloured printed shirt, or pop of colour, tailored pant, chino pants or shorts are a great option. A blazer with a stylish pocket square, is always a great way to complete an outfit. But please keep in mind the weather, if it’s going to be too hot, a shirt is suffice.
There is no requirements to wear a tie, but if you prefer the look then go ahead. A bow tie could always be fun too!

SHOES… 
Smart leather or suede brogues or loafers are a great choice, or a leather boat shoe. Please do not wear thongs!

ACCESSORIES…
Once again, sunglasses should be a must. And for the men wanting that added protection or style, a woven or felt fedora, is a great addition!

Here’s some fashion inspiration from last year..

SHOE TRENDS FOR SPRING SUMMER 2016…

Shoe lovers rejoice…I’ve rounded up the some of the best Spring Summer 2016 shoe trends from the Fashion Week runways, just for you. From sneakers to block heels, slides, pointed flats and of course, sandals, it’s all here…

ON POINT
Embrace the flat of the season, the pointed flat!
The Spring/Summer shoe trends bring a bunch of flat looks for fans of comport and femininity combined. Pointed toe shoes are a flawless way to add sophistication to any outfit.
The perfect mix of comfort and style, a pointy toe flat is a great choice for a casual ensemble, work outfit or even for a night out.

SLIDES
Available in both closed in toe, or open toe.. This is an easy ‘go to’ shoe for Spring Summer. Team it back with a smart casual outfit, for a more conservative look, put your fav high heeled version with your party dress or wear a open toe pair on weekends with boyfriend jeans and your favourite white t-shirt… for the effortless chic look!

STREET SNEAKERS
Possibly the most common look on the runway for the Spring Summer, is the pair of laced up sneakers. Sneakers are here to stay, but who says they have to be plain white? Get excited with a colored trainer, leopard print or a metallic pair…. An easy way to add that sport lux feel to any outfit!!

GLADIATORS
The Roman-esque sandal is not going anywhere for spring, and this season, they are taking lengths to another level!
Team them back with a gorgeous boho inspired dress, or relaxed playsuit and you have the perfect Summer Sunset outfit!

BLOCK HEELS
Chunky block heels ruled the runway, which are not only on-trend but also comfortable…. The block heel, the ’90s favourite finally making a comeback and giving your summer sandals a little lift.
Whether worn to work with cropped trousers or bare-legged with a slinky slip dress, the style is incredibly chic. Plus, there’s the whole comfort factor these shoes might be high, but they’re a whole lot more sensible than your thin stilettos. Happy feet all round!

 

 

TEETH WHITENING…

“Sharing my personal teeth whitening experience!”

We all want the gorgeous Hollywood Smile….
I know for me personally, I had quite discoloured teeth…. from my daily routine of coffee drinking and then add a glass of red wine or two in there.. and bam, my teeth aren’t as bright as what they should be!!

I have always wanted to get my teeth whitened, but knew it was quite an expensive process at the dentist… and the ‘at home’ treatments from the chemist, just weren’t going to cut it!!

However last week I was THRILLED TO BITS to be invited by the team at Pure Smile in Sydney, to experience their Signature Cosmetic Teeth Whitening treatment.

Pure Smile are the official teeth whitening partners, for the latest Miss Universe contestants.. so I thought, if it’s good enough for them….then it has to be good!!

I went in on Friday to their Chatswood store which is located in Westfield Chatswood and was greeted by the lovely Lena, who went through the whole procedure and process with me.

I eagerlly sat down like an excited school girl, hoping that I would leave at the end of the process and feeling more confident with my smile!! And I did just that… as you will see below, my teeth were definitely not white and after my treatment.. they had a lovely natural white to them!!

Because my teeth were so discoloured, I didn’t achieve a porcelain white look… but I am planning on going back to have another treatment, to help achieve a whiter and brighter smile!! xo
