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

SKIN FIRST…

Taking my skin care regime, to the next level!

At the ripe old age of 37 (ssshhhh I’m turning 38 next month) I get allot of compliments, saying I don’t look my age…. which is a nice thing to hear, but then I get the question.. what have you had done!!
I have never been under the knife, my lips are my own and I’m not against having what ever makes you happy.. but I want to share about some treatments that I have had, over the past 6 months that I believe have helped with how I look.

I have always taken care of my skin, it was something that my mother taught me at the age of 14. “It’s important to cleanse, tone and moisturizer… and always take your makeup off!” I would like to say that I have always tried to stick to these guidelines, but I have definitely gone to bed after a big night out, with my make up on!! Oh to be carefree and young again lol I also worked for a beautiful skin care product, Lancome… which taught me allot about skin on a deeper level.

But last year when I turned 37, I had a pre mid life crisis moment…. and I started to feel like the 40’s were closer then my 30’s and I felt for the first time, I looked like I was ageing. Now I must say, I’m pretty blessed with my mothers Spanish skin, where I really don’t have any wrinkles.. but I started to feel that my skin was looking dull and uneven. So as much as I was ‘taking care’ of my skin, I felt I needed something to shake it up!!

About this time last year, I met the gorgeous team from Laser Clinics Wollongong. The Manager Danai has taken care of my Laser treatment for about 8 months now and during one of my treatments, discussed their skin treatments. I wanted it all, but we started with an AHA Enzymatic Peel. I had never had anything like this before and I was really excited to see the end result.
* As you can see in the first image, my skin was looking a little dull even a little grey and I had very uneven skin tone.

I could definitely notice a change to my skin after this treatment. It had more of a glow to it, but I still felt I needed something a little more intense. So I opted to have Dermo Rolling done or (needling as it’s called) You can view my little online video of the process here > Dermo rolling.
Having this treatment done, I believe really took my skin to the next level.

This is my skin now… Yes I have makeup on, but you can tell my skin definitely has a more even skin tone, it’s got a glow to it and I feel that it has a new sense of life….or maybe I just feel better about it!! Either way, I was definitely happy with the two treatments and I will endevour to continue to have them, every couple of months. x

THE TAILORED SUIT

What’s on trend for women, this Autumn / Winter?

Autumn is definitely on our door step, as the first drop of Autumn fashion has already hit the stores!! I KNOW!!
I’m still holding on to Summer, as I feel like I blinked and it’s gone!

It’s that time of year, where we’re not sure if it’s going to be a hot day, or a wet one.. but I want to share some trends to look out for, so your wardrobe can be ready for those cooler days!

THE TAILORED SUIT The tailored suit is one of the biggest trends this season.. if you work in an office or not!! It’s also an option for an after five outfit, special occasion, or just out to dinner. However this season, we are seeing it with a bit of a twist as well… yes it can be feminine and structured, but the Androgynous version is still just as strong!! Think Men’s tailoring for Women! Longer line jackets, slim ling pants and take off your heels ladies, as this version is teamed back with brogues…

AUTUMN / WINTER FASHION 2016

What’s on trend for women, this Autumn / Winter?

Autumn is definitely on our door step, as the first drop of Autumn fashion has already hit the stores!! I KNOW!!
I’m still holding on to Summer, as I feel like I blinked and it’s gone!

It’s that time of year, where we’re not sure if it’s going to be a hot day, or a wet one.. but I want to share some trends to look out for, so your wardrobe can be ready for those cooler days!

GREY’S AND NEUTRALS  If you prefer NOT to wear black and prefer a more subtle look, then this is for you!

At the moment, there is a sea of grey and neutral tones in nearly every store… and it’s been used as a complete colour palette. Grey on grey or oatmeal and camel teamed back with white… the palette is very muted and easy to wear, with the use of different textures and fabrics giving it appeal.
Coats, big chunky knits,  fine laying tops teamed back with denim and tailored pants/skirts…..and no sign of black!!

I may actually even adopt this trend this season, as I’m drawn to the grey on grey look!!!
