Elemis to the rescue!

So as you may be aware, it's still Winter here in good ol' Melbourne. However, I can feel Spring in the air and it is just around the corner, thank God! 

My skin has not coped with the harsh winds, nor the changes in temperature, from indoors to outdoors and vice versa. It has been calling out for help and I have found the perfect solution to bring my skin back to its pre-Winter hydrated state-Elemis!

I've been using Elemis for about two years now. I do love it. It's at a more reasonable price point, as compared to La Mer, which is just too expensive for me to even consider at the moment. I have sensitive, reactive skin with small patches of redness/couperose, so I need to be really careful with what I use. 

Really effective skincare is expensive, right? Well, I refuse to pay full price for skincare if I can help it. I turn to the online mecca of skincare, haircare and perfumery-strawberrynet.com

StrawberryNET is an online cosmetic store with a very wide selection of skincare lines, such as Elemis, Clarins and Chanel. It is so easy to order online and they offer FREE postage around the world! 

Every time I receive my order in the mail, it comes wrapped up in a white box which is tied with a pretty lilac bow. Now that I am a loyalty customer, I receive an extra 10% off their already heavily reduced prices.

I hopped online today and found the product in question which I'm hoping will be my saving grace. Daily Redness Relief 50ml by Elemis. This product claims to be a..."soothing, anti-redness treatment moisturiser that helps to reduce the daily appearance of redness and high colour. It contains "powerful Anti-Redness Complex to help reduce the flushed appearance of broken capillaries. A Phytoamine Biocomplex of Centella Asiatica, Meadowsweet and Amino Acids help to soothe the skin." 1

 

I shall keep you posted about my skin and the changes I see over time, in case any of you are in fact interested to try this out for yourself. I find reviews extremely helpful in making  choices, whether it be if I'm looking for a new mascara to use or skincare. 

Keep in touch, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this range or any other skincare questions and concerns. I am a qualified beauty therapist, for those of you who didn't know! I'm full of little surprises!! 

I've lost my voice at the moment and am terribly frustrated because I love talking! Let's hope I find it soon!!! Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend so far.

Yours in style,

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 










For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally, especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove.
So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes. 
Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection:





Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals.
Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!
