When you have a pretty intense full time job and a love/hate relationship with Netflix, blogging on the regular tends to fall by the wayside. Nevertheless, I’m determined to keep afloat with it as I enjoy having this little space on the internet, even if it’s sometimes neglected. Here are a few things I have been enjoying lately.
01 // The ultimate Bao Buns from the Night Noodle Market, crispy tofu and pork belly heaven
02 // Two Body Shop products I picked up recently, their Hawaiian Kukui Body Cream and Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil are both amazing
03 // Neighbourhood walks
04 // Acai bowl from Sadhana Kitchen, so good having a raw cafe in my hood
05 // A crisp rosé = current drink of choice for Friday work lunches
06 // After a shipping mix up, my Urban Outfitters woven wall hanging finally arrived in all it’s fluffy glory <3
After a pretty miserable winter in here in Sydney, the weather is finally starting to warm up again, so I have dusted off a few summer products to put back into rotation. Here are five favourites…
1. La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF50
My favourite sunscreen because it has an easy spray on application, is light and non greasy while having a super high SPF. Win.
2. St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
One thing I have learnt while living in Australia is the Aussie sun is HARSH. Way too many sunburns later, I now rely on some colour to the skin the faux tan way. This stuff is super easy to use and leaves a nice, natural looking bronze glow to the skin.
3. Moroccanoil (25ml bottle)
Humidity wreaks absolute havoc on my hair, so I keep a small, handbag size bottle of Moroccanoil on me at all times. The tiniest amount sorts the frizz out in no time.
4. Soap & Glory – The Scrub of Your Life
This body scrub does a great job at buffing dry winter skin into a smoother, less scaley state.
5. Bump Eraiser Medi Paste
Ain’t nobody got time for shaving/waxing ingrowns. This stuff does the job, total summer necessity.
As mentioned in this post, just over a month ago I went to Splendour in the Grass, a 3 day music festival in Byron Bay. Some of my musical highlights for the weekend were Death Cab For Cutie (weekend favourites, so insanely good), Florence and the Machine, Tame Impala, The Wombats, The Vaccines and last, but not least, Blur (Damon Albarn is such a legend!). I thought I would post some snaps from the 3 days, along with some handy hints if you ever find yourself attending Splendour (or any rainy festival really).
I just got back from Splendour in the Grass, a 3 day music festival in the far-northeastern corner of New South Wales and probably Australia’s biggest multi-day music festival. It was my first time going and although I am completely exhausted, I had such an awesome time!
The lineup was pretty epic this year and some highlights were Florence + the Machine, Death Cab For Cutie, Blur, Mark Ronson, Jenny Lewis, Tame Impala, plus some new discoveries too. I documented my way around like I did for Coachella, so a big Splendour post is definitely in the works :)
Can’t go wrong with some Saturday interior inspo. Jutta Tenninen is an interior designer at Finnish interior design studio, Bo LKV. Her home was featured on their blog and the moment I saw it, I fell in love – so much design goodness, I wouldn’t change a thing. Also highly recommend checking out the Bo LKV blog as there is a ton of interior inspiration on there, it’s all in Finnish, but hey, there are plenty of pretty pictures. Jutta also has her own blog, which is equally awesome.
