{Just some of my moody inspiration of sun, sand and surf}

As a lot of you may know, I grew up in California for most of my life. After I turned 18 I hopped on a plane and moved to Arizona for 4 years to attend ASU. Then after I graduated, I spent a brief stint back in San Francisco before I packed my bags once again to move to Australia. Point is, I’ve spent my entire life in places that are key destination spots for sun, surf, or holiday weather. While this has been a luxury I would never trade in, it comes with a risk of skin damage and dangers like skin cancer. I know that I spent YEARS in Arizona laying out by my pool with no sunscreen on. Now that I am older (and wiser) I have developed a greater desire to protect my skin when I am in the sun (you only have one face!). Since being in Australia, which has one of the strongest rays of sun in the world, I know this from the experience of painful sunburns, it has been even more important for me to put on sunscreen. As annoying as sunscreen is to put on and it’s ability to keep us from getting as bronzed as we would all really like, it’s really the only thing that has the ability to fully protect our skin from the sun!

NIVEA has created an amazing video on the coast of Australia using a ultraviolet camera. The camera allowed people to actually look deep into their skin and see what damage has occurred from over sun exposure. The video also shows just what your skin looks like with a layer of sunscreen on it, which looks actually pretty rad when you can truly see the effect sunscreen has. So, check out this video folks! AND apply lots of sunscreen to your sexy bodies, while also lending a helping hand to your boyfriends, hubbys or just some hot strangers who need a good rub down. When using NIVEA products don’t forget to check the label and use only as directed!

NIVEA Sun Summer Resolution Campaign 

New Age 70’s

Campaign

After a cold month of December in the U.S.A, I am now back in Australia and fighting the humidity and heat that wafts in the air of Queensland. I am not sure what has caused the mood but recently I have had a sudden want, no, NEED to wear flared jeans and sleeveless shirts. This combination to me is picturesque of California summers and for some reason reminds me of the palm trees lining the streets of LA. Maybe I’ll always be a California girl at heart, and no matter where I live or how long I live there I’ll always get the desire to move back to it’s sunny coast. When I was in the U.S. and having a cheeky browse at the amazing Neiman Marcus sale, I found these McGuire flared jeans with a raw hem and immediately fell in love, unfortunately, they were not on sale, as are all items I tend to drift toward in stores (I chalk it up to expensive taste, but I may just be unlucky). This new pair of denim, covers all the desires I have in life for a flare, and paired with my graphic MSGM t-shirt and ASOS heeled sandals, has me feeling like a 70’s rockstar about to slap on some rollerblades and boogie on down. I also picked up a new pair of sunglasses on my trip overseas. I was in search for a pair to replace my Celine Audrey sunglasses after Cornelius decided to eat them for breakfast (may they rest in peace) and I think these new Saint Laurent’s have filled the void that my Celine’s ultimately left in my life.

I have also paired this outfit with my unreal MOOI leather and cowhide envelope clutch. MOOI is an amazing brand that makes beautiful leather products. She also makes all her items with leather that is leftover from the food industry in Africa.  You can view her website and all her amazing purses here: MOOI

Wine Country in Winter: How to dress for Napa Valley

Canon Ebay Photos 6-2

This past month, I went on a very long vacation to California to catch up with my family and friends over the holiday season. One of the benefits of my life in California is my house in the Napa Valley. For those of you who have never been to the Napa Valley, it can be VERY cold during the winter, but when considering all the activities that are to be done in wine county, like, wine tasting, wine tasting, and more wine tasting, it is essential to have only the chicest outfit while pounding all that vino. While wine tasting can appear to be a very classy event, it can also be a long process. So its important to still look your best while also appealing to your comfort levels. Because it was so cold while I was there, I opted for a suede jacket (this is a similar version, not in suede, and on sale!) that is by far the warmest jacket I own. I paired it with my white equipment silk button-up (it’s on SALE!), blue jeans, and thigh high black boots (These are so comfortable), a chunky belt, a beanie, and my new Saint Laurent sunnies.

Regardless of what you wear, Napa Valley is always an amazing place to visit with friends and family. It has delicious food, amazing views, and the yummiest wine. The next time you visit Napa feel free to let me know and I will send you a list of my favourite places to visit!
