Summer Essentials...

Can you believe it??

It's almost Christmas again- How the hell did that happen?

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to write, once Spring Racing comes up it’s all a bit of a socialwhirl until after New Years Eve!

I’ve been busy moving house (again!), enjoying a seductive new romance and have been busy writing features for MINC Magazine, which is a cool, no bullshit fashion spread. Definitely worth checking out for some REAL, down to earth, fresh lifestyle and fashion ideas.

I’m also expanding my skills and doing some more media training for TV. It’s all been very interesting, I can’t say too much right now but watch this space!

I’ll keep this post brief as I’m sure everyone is as busy as I am this time of year!

I’ve got some quick tips to make sure everybody makes the most of the start of summer…

1: SUNSCREEN & WATER- You know that I was always going to nag about this but it’s really so important- Put a bottle of sunscreen next to your toothbrush (try not to get it confused with toothpaste, that will never end well!) And just slap some on every day before you leave the house. A great oil free option is Clinique City Block.
 And always have a water bottle handy- in your bag, your car, at the desk, next to your bed. If you like your water bottle you will use it more. FACT. So check out these cuties

2. BEAT SOMEONE UP: Yup, you heard me, for fitness this year why not try a martial art or some boxing classes? I’m addicted to boxing now, it’s a great workout and a good way to relieve stress as well. It works your whole body and gives you a new skill that might even come in handy one day! The hottest new trend in martial arts is Muay Thai, which is a combination sport that is also known as "Art of Eight Limbs" because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact". My friend Jess trains at Supafight in St. Kilda and she says that "Muay Thai should come with a warning; it's seriously addictive. It's amazing for stress, fitness and body toning. Plus, it's ridiculously fun."

3. CHRISTMAS SHOPPING: I was chatting to a work colleague and when she mentioned she had an online store I thought I’d check it out. As soon as I went to I knew I had most of my Christmas shopping done. The handcrafted home wares and quilts are absolutely beautiful! And there are a few I’ve got my eye on for myself too!
If your man, brother or dad isn’t the kind to be impressed with floral quilts and scarves then better check out These are an awesome and quirky gift idea. One of those things to buy for those guys that have everything and love a good laugh! 

4. GET WET:  It’s the perfect time of year to try out a new water sport! Why not bite the bullet and finally go for a surfing lesson? Or the new fly boarding trend that’s got everybody talking? I’ve got kite boarding on my summer bucket list this year! There is so much on offer around Melbourne, things in the water to keep you active and smiling!

I’ll be sure to keep you updated on summer fashions for beach, music festivals and events as well as my usual list of the sexiest Melbourne NYE parties!
