Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018: Anna Quan Resort 2019

Guess what this week is....?  Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia!
My week kicked off with the Anna Quan runway show.  Anna's collection was a favourite of mine last year, so I was super excited to be attending this year.  The Resort 2019 collection 'Holiday', was inspired and created for the ultimate summer getaway.  Swimwear cover ups for the day, and effortless silhouettes for the evening.  Anna's signatory shirting and tailored pieces were evident throughout the collection, juxtaposed with simplistic and elegant draping.  I am obsessed with her use of pleating and would wear her dresses in a heartbeat!  Anna's pieces are created for the modern day woman, including core investment pieces that you can take from season to season.

Happy 8th Birthday!

SHOP THE RUNWAY: Tommy x Gigi Spring 2018

What's my favourite collaboration?... Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid! 
Gigi, along with her siblings Bella and Anwar, headed down the Tommy Hilfiger runway in Milan.  The racing theme, Spring 2018 collection, includes Tommy's signatory colour palette of red, white, blue and black... endless leather, crop tees and sweatshirts, checkered prints, bikinis, denim and of course the Tommy x Gigi logo.  But the best part?  You can shop the collection directly from the runway.  And of course, I've already placed my order!

November Beauty Favourite: First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Triple Protection Skin Tint

I'm obsessed with all things First Aid Beauty, their face cleanser is my holy grail cleanser.... therefore, I was excited to try their new skin tint.  This is amazing!  I have dry and sensitive skin and this glides on like a dream.  It's sheer to light coverage, but buildable. It covers uneven skin tone, it's super light weight, leaves your skin looking natural and it's just effortless.  It's a satin finish, which makes it great for any skin types.  The tint is available in four shades, but I found it adapts well to your skin tone.  It's four key ingredients include, Goji Berry which is an antioxidant great for the skin, Alteromonas Ferment Extract and Haematococcus Pluvialis Extract which help project the skin, and it also includes Zinc Oxide which is sunscreen.  It's free from harsh chemicals including parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, alcohol and fragrance.  It's also, vegan, gluten free and non-comedogenic.     


The tint is available via Sephora, First Aid Beauty, Feel Unique.
