A Guide To Life In Noosa

Over the weekend my boyfriend and I were given the opportunity to travel to Noosa for a few nights! We stayed at the luxurious SOFITEL NOOSA PACIFIC RESORT, located in the heart of Hastings Street, Noosa heads. With so many amazing things to do, eat and explore in Noosa, I thought I’d share with you how best to spend a day in one of my favourite places to relax in Australia.

The Weekend That Was

Although perhaps not quite as warm in Melbourne right now as these photos would suggest, I am so not about the winter, thus any opportunity where the sun pops out for anything more than a minute – I’m out – frolicking around in far too little clothes, sipping on far too many skinny capps, but thats what the weekend is for, no?

[Disposable Week]

Having always loved to take photos, be in photos or even just be around when photos are happening, it was no surprise that I found myself taking photos (albeit primarily of myself) for a living, what was a surprise though is that between all the content production, collaborations, photoshoots and I guess really what should actually be referred to as ‘work’ (although it never really feels that way), I sometimes forget to take photos – just for the sake of taking photos! You know, the kind of shots you take purely for memories or just because. So with a sudden urge to get back into taking photos just because – I thought I’d bring around a disposable camera with me for a week to encourage me to take more photos just for fun! Plus, a disposable camera felt so very fitting as when I was a kid I could barely get enough of them. I would quite literally bring a disposable camera to school/camp/any-somewhat-social-activity-happening-in-the-life-of-a-10-year-old and the spend the following week begging my mum to go get it developed ASAP. Ironically, a lot of the photos I took were of myself all dressed up in different outfits I had put together using clothes from my mums wardrobe or clothes that I had made – but that is a story for another day. So anyways, here you have it – my week from the eyes of a disposable camera. The quality is kind of questionable, compared to the usual DSLR and I chose not to edit or process any of the photos, which again I thought was a nice change from my more curated content.

Weekend Looks

I recently styled a couple of weekend outfits, featuring items available from GLUE STORE. I have been a huge fan of GLUE STORE for as long as I can remember, they are sort of just my go-to for all things denim and cool. With a wide variety of brands in varying price ranges, they really do have something for every occasion and everyone. I played around with an all-black, polka-dot look for my first outfit and added some double strap black heels for a point of difference (and to mix-up always wearing boots/sneakers). With my second outfit, I couldn’t go past these mid-blue denim LEVIS, slightly dressed up with a lace khaki camisole.

Grana Move

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As a long-term lover of GRANA, this month I wanted to share with you how I am styling their amazing new GRANA MOVE collection. Although not one to usually be found at the gym, I am definitely partial to a long power walk, especially if there is an iced-latte and my best friend involved. As my exercise isn’t really what one would called ‘strenuous’, I like to make sure I’m feeling alarmingly fashionable even when working out. This is easily achieved with GRANA’s new MOVE collection. With a huge variety of cuts and colours on offer, they really do have something for everyone. I particularly love this red wine legging paired with the lighter lilac top. I also played around with a couple of different cardigan colours below to show you how versatile the colours really are!

Daniel Wellington

img_3091GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! Just swinging by this evening to share with you my new favourite timepiece from one of my all-time (#puns), favourite watch brands, Daniel Wellington. With the launch of their latest timepieces, I really do feel this all-black-with-gold-detailing-watch was the final item missing from my little collection. Apart from being an incredibly chic, timeless (#SoManyPuns) piece, the luxe detail and finish makes it perfect to pair back with slightly more dressier looks, like this V-neck black silk top from Style Addict, oversized mum jeans from Assembly the Label and slip on loafers.

TheRaces: Beauty Essentials

img_9264_fotor_collageIn collaboration with TheRaces.com.au – the hottest new fashion and lifestyle destination for all things RACES, I wanted to share with you the beauty essentials that I pack inside my bag for the day.

First things first, you need a bag. Not just any bag. The bag has to match your outfit, compliment your shoes, and be big enough to fit a bunch of stuff but small enough that it does not inconvenience your race-day-existence. Tricky I know. For this crazy bag contradiction, I recommend a slightly oversized clutch (brownie points if it comes with a cross-body chain strap) in the designer variety. I’ve picked the Givenchy Antigona Envelope Leather Clutch by Cosette.com.au.

Double Denim & Blush

DENIM SKIRT / SILKY BLOUSE /  DENIM JACKET / BLACK BELT / BLACK BOOTS 

Somewhere in between spring springing and my never ending addiction to blush and good denim – babing Helen from Boho Tailor, a few fellow Glassons-babes and I photographed our favourite Spring pieces from Glassons’ most recent collection. With Melbourne’s CBD as our backdrop, we break-ed only for fuel (read: baked goods/one-too-many-cappuccinos), outfit changes & the usual please-don’t-run-me-over car-situation, which is somewhat inevitable when shooting on the streets. Although absolutely adoring all the pieces we shot with on the day, my absolute favourite piece was the denim skirt – for its slightly oversized, well-made, darker denim vibe – aka the perfect transitional piece.
