9 Fashionable slides you must own this summer

Stylish vs comfortable, why should we choose?

Slides are perfect for summer because they are both! They can be very casual, but could also be worn with a dressy outfit and even taken to the office…

Here’s my top picks:


City chic: 

Think pearls, satin finish and crystals.

#4 KG Kurt Geiger Naomi Slides – $230

#6 Senso Zilda II Slides – $179

#7 Gucci Metallic Leather Slide With Crystals – $1090

Weekend stroll:

Floral embroidery, denim material and nude colours are a must

#1 Forever New Blossom Embroidered Slides – $69.99

#3 Spurr Taija Sandals – $39.95

#9 Billini Mariko Sandals – $69.95

Pool side goddess:

Fluffy fur, sporty edge or shiny rubber, what would it be?

#2 Nike Benassi JDI Slides – $47.44

#5 Marc Jacobs Floral Appliqued Rubber Slides – $214.01

#8 Novo Phoenix Slides – $39.95

And if you are more of a heels kinda girl, mules have a similar vibe and can be as versatile.

From catwalk to sidewalk: a guide to embrace spring trends in your everyday life

Let’s talk about fashion designers, these geniuses who create, innovate and shape the way we dress.

‘What they create is greater than art because you live your life in it’ – Nigel, The Devil Wears Prada

As much as I love fashion and looking at models wearing the latest trends on the catwalks, it sometimes amazes me how crazy some designs are and often wonder how on earth would someone pull this off in real life? (I’m sure you feel me here!)

So, to make your life easier, I’ve decided to dig out the best trends for Spring and show you how to take it from catwalk to sidewalk…

  1. Stripes

Statement stripes will be a big deal this season, they were at the core presentations of iconic designers such as Proenza Schouler, Rosie Assoulin, Mulberry and Mary Katrantzou.

Go for bold and colourful patterns to make a statement, +1 if you can pull off a second trend at the same time like off shoulder or ruffles!

Bardot Stripe Ruffle Shirt

Top tips: this trend would be particularly suited to jazz up your workwear.

2. Sheer fabric

I absolutely love sheer materials and beyond excited to see it widely showcased on the hottest fashion shows.  I mean, how exciting is it to be able to wear see-through outfits outside the bedroom?

Let’s face it, it is a sexy trend but fear not, done the right way, it can be extremely classy and not borderline vulgar!

Take inspiration from leading designers such as Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Christian Dior.

3. The bra-top

Time to work on these abs ladies, the bra-top is back in the spotlight!

As seen on Victoria Beckham,  Altazzura and Alexander Wang’s shows, ultra cropped tops will be your best companion for casual spring looks.

10 Simple things I have learnt from visiting a beauty salon

Beauty Basket

When it comes to beauty and skincare, there are plenty of little things that we can do daily to prevent breakouts, slow-down the ageing process and improve skin texture but that we take for granted or don’t include in our beauty regime.

I’ve always been into makeup and beauty but I must admit my skincare routine was lacking… Being in my late 20’s now and having inherited a fairly dry skin, I am starting to freak out a bit about ageing and wanted to do something that my future self would thank me for.

After doing some research, I thought I’d give the dermafrac treatment a go.

If you are not familiar with this therapy, it involves 4 steps combining microdermbrasion, microneedling , product infusion and light therapy.  I visited ‘Skindeep‘ in Perth on the 15th April and after the treatment, ended up signing for their 4 weeks ‘skin bootcamp’. I treated my skin to 4 medi-spa treatments (alternating dermafrac and omnilux), 4 detox booth sessions and gathered some very good tips along the way!

  1. Stop touching your face! 
  2. Wash your hands, often
  3. Drink at least 2L of water per day
  4. Invest in good quality skincare (yes, it is expensive but it’s worth it!)
  5. Clean your make up brushes weekly
  6. Change your pillow case after each professional treatment 
  7. Get to know your skin and its needs
  8. Apply SPF 50 on your skin daily
  9. Remove your make up (being drunk is no excuse!)
  10. Don’t be scared to seek professional assistance or guidance

Since then, I have upgraded my skincare routine and have followed the above tips to the letter. My skin looks and feels better already, the texture has improved, I breakout less often and have a brighter younger and healthier looking skin (Bonus being I already received compliments about my skin!)

What is the top beauty tips you wish you knew when you were younger?
