This one is a pretty crisp outfit for me but I love pulling out a fancy look every now and then - especially when party season is upon us! I've been pretty obsessed with vest dresses for a while and I've paired this white one with beige accessories including these croc beauties by Scarletto's. I didn't want to take too much away from these statement pieces so I've just included minimal silver jewellery.

REVIEW: Hello Hair

 photo P1250911_zpse66cf20d.jpg

I noticed that Hello Hair gets a whole tonne of questions about their products and I actually got quite a few after I posted about it on my instagram account when I was in Bali. So I've done my only little review because, as my regular readers will know, I'm pretty obsessed with beauty and pamper products. After a few months of travelling - enjoying the sun and sea - I needed to get some hydration back into my hair which is what the Hello Hair mask does. Not only is is hydrating it's 100% natural, vegan & cruelty free - which is something I'm really drawn to. 

Process:
The treatment is applied to dry hair and washed out by shampooing and conditioning you hair as normal. Hello Hair is oil-based and trying an oil treatment for the first time can feel a little weird but don't be too shy about it! Depending on your hair length, place 2-3 'squirts' of oil from the cute squeeze packet through your hair. Wrap your hair in a towel and leave the treatment for about 30mins or longer before washing out. 

Results: 
Soft, silky hair! After 4-6 treatments your hair should feel stronger & lush!

My tips:
Add the treatment gradually so you can get the perfect amount of treatment of your hair. When I use the treatment I need to shampoo my hair twice before the treatment is fully removed - otherwise it goes a bit straw-like (so don't freak if this happens - you just need to get all the oil treatment out of your hair). 

Summer is coming and it's the perfect time to indulge in pamper products in order to protect your skin and hair in the harsher weather conditions. Luckily the Hello Hair Hydrating Mask is only $15 - so it won't break the bank to give it a go! For all you out there who adore summer scents/products/anything like me, Hello Hair also have a new Island Escape edition in their online store. I haven't tried that one myself so I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who has. Check out the Hello Hair website here: hellohair.com.au

I've had a pretty huge week. Busy but good busy - the best kind! My week days consisted of a lot of emails, meetings, shooting and planning (mostly travel planning for Singapore on Thursday). My weekend started with a bang down the south coast where I witnessed my fellow blogger & babe Ally from Substance & JD get married - it was at Cupitt's Winery so of course there was a tonne of wine & good times at the reception. Next we drove north of Sydney on Saturday to see the greatest living band in the world - The Rolling Stones play at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley. Currently having a much needed afternoon rest and watching movies before another big week ahead! Make sure you follow me on twitter & instagram for extra photos & behind the scenes shenanigans. xx

Wearing: Playsuit - Showpo, Heels - Scarletto's, Clutch - Vintage, necklace - Samantha Wills.

Its been a big week of Spring racing in Australia. It’s not the racing that usually takes my fancy but the fashion (plus the bubbles and cocktails, obviously). I feel there’s been a real lack of colour in fashion over the winter so I was excited to mix it up with this outfit. Subtle gypsy vibes, a touch of vintage and really comfy shoes – the usual suspects when it comes to my personal style. Talking about shoes, I can’t not mention these babies by Scarletto’s! I love the colour of this croc pair and by coincidence it matched quite perfectly with this old favourite statement necklace of mine. I also have to mention that they are padded and extremely comfortable – especially excellent for those days when you’re constantly on you feet – or trying to be! Mind those bubbles girls… the silly season is coming!

P.S. Keep a close eye on the blog tomorrow – there’s a giveaway on it’s way!

Our last stop in Bali was Kuta! There are a lot of amazing places to eat in the Kuta/Seminyak area so a few days at the end of the trip is always in order. Not to mention the sunsets. Till next time Bali!
