NEW IN | GLAMOURFLAGE FOR WINTER SKINCARE

With the official start of winter only being days away, the struggle for soft skin has become a 1-v-1 battle with the weather. Cold winds and artificial heating are awfully good at drying out your skin, so I've incorporated a range of Glamourflage products into my skincare to make sure I have the upper hand in this fight.


Luscious Lucy Face Cream* - RRP $32.95

Perhaps the most quintessential skincare product for winter is a moisturising face cream, and the Luscious Lucy Face Cream is the definition of moisturising with natural ingredients of shea butter, coconut oil and aloe vera. The all natural products means that it's still suitable for sensitive skin - it didn't further irritate my skin when I was suffering from skin allergies. I prefer to use it as a night cream, but it definitely can be (and is recommended to be) used throughout the day. The product absorbs quite quickly, so you aren't left feeling and looking like a grease ball. Although the fragrance does remind me of my grandma (i.e. strong vintage 1950's vibes), I personally don't find it off-putting. It may be too strong for some people, so try it out in stores if you get the opportunity. 

Zany Zoe Eye Gel* - RRP $22.95

This time of the year also means staying up late, waking up before the sun rises and guzzling down cups of coffee (and in my case, playing microeconomic video games) for exam prep. The lack of sleep and caffeine overload usually means both puffy and dark under eyes. The Zany Zoe Eye Gel is packed with cucumber, chamomile, horse chestnut, liquorice, marigold and butchers broom to counteract these symptoms. I recommend applying the gel 10-15 minutes before you do the rest of your make up. The metal rollerball helps to cool and de-puff the under eye area. Ideally, the rollerball could dispense more product but it's definitely a great wake up call to get you ready for the rest of your day. The product also dries a little bit tacky. Although I found it a little bit odd at the beginning, I've discovered it's a great base for your concealer. 

Enchanting Ella Eye Cream* - RRP $24.95

Glamourflage has also got the Enchanting Ella Eye Cream to take care of your under eye area in the long run. Because it uses all natural products and is fragrance-free, you don't run the risk of having irritated and half-teary eyes after every application. With regular use, the wheat germ oil will help to reduce the darkness in your under eye circles. For me, the fine lines/wrinkles around my under eyes are starting to fill out and are looking a little less visible (#winning). This is probably my new favourite skin care product, because I've finally found a product that makes me feel less insecure about my horrid under eye circles!

Glamourflage is currently taking 25% of their winter survival kit products, which includes the Luscious Lucy Face Cream and Enchanting Ella Eye Cream. All products are available at David Jones

OUTFIT | HEARTLESS

 As Ned Stark famously said "winter is coming". 

Whilst Sydney was drowning in torrential rain, I was frantically searching online and in stores for a good coat. It just so happened that The Iconic contacted me about their winter new arrivals, and I  picked out this Paint It Red coat. Although the material is quite thin, it's definitely enough for those sunny autumn days (TMI: I was sweating after 30 minutes on the day we shot this). I was worried that an XS would be too small to let me layer knits underneath, but there's just enough room for a snug fit.  In celebration of Mother's Day, I decided to go with these mom jeans (they are literally hand-me-down, mum's jeans). I'm bringing them into my winter wardrobe this year, because I figured I can just wear a pair of warm leggings underneath and no one would have to know.

TWO WAYS | BON VOYAGE PART II

To be completely honest, I was tempted to name this outfit "If You're A Mermaid, I'm A Mermaid" because this maxi skirt from Fame & Partners makes me feel like a carefree mermaid. In actuality, this is the second half of my 'Bon Voyage' styling set. 

I love the way all white makes me look 100x more tan than I actually am. The only qualms I have about this fabulous maxi skirt is a) how heavy it is (it's got to weight at least 1.5kg) and b) how long it is. I spent the ten minutes of this shoot dragging the bottom of skirt along the dirt, so shoes without a serious heel isn't the best for someone of my height. You'd also be surprised how much more comfortable I am with a bit more fabric and a little less midriff showing. Although the bandeau that came with this skirt is gorgeous, I still have my reservations about wearing it in public, so this boxy crop top (which I snagged for $5 at the latest Minkpink sample sale) was the perfect alternative.

For all you non-Australian/American peeps, Fame & Partners is now available on ASOS so you can get your hands on some funky fresh formalwear (please excuse my horrid midnight alliteration)!
