Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2019: We are Kindred

I recently attended the We are Kindred show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2019.  The Resort 2020 collection 'Boheme Heart', embraced "a little bit bohemian and a little bit party".  A carefree, bohemian, effortless, and feminine collection, including the perfect pieces for your spring/summer wardrobe. The collection includes flowy long dresses, flare pants, mini shorts and jumpsuits/playsuits, off the shoulder silhouettes, plunging necklines and frills.  A breathtaking colour palette of pastel blue, yellow, white and pink... with a mixture of prints, metallic and texture.  
The show itself opened with Victoria's Secret model Alannah Walton.. yes that was a highlight of my week!

Zoella x Colourpop Collaboration

Zoe Sugg is my favourite YouTuber, so I was excited to hear about her collaboration with Colourpop.  Zoella x Colourpop, embraces the 70s, and vibes the ultimate brunch date.  I can't get enough of the collection...From the super cute packaging, to the pressed powder eyeshadow palette I never knew I needed, and how can I forget my new favourite make up bag!
The pressed powder 'Brunch Date' eyeshadow palette is definitely the stand out of the collection.  It's a mixture of warm and cool tones, and both matte and shimmers.  It's also an extremely wearable palette with tones of brown, copper, pink, champagne and even a pop of blue.
The collection also includes 3 Ultra Matte lips, 2 Supernova shadows, a pressed powder highlighter, pressed powder blush and 2 Crème Gel liners.  


Taylor Swift for Elle US & Elle UK April 2019

This month, we are blessed with not only one Taylor Swift Elle cover, but two!  Taylor is gracing the cover of Elle US and Elle UK.  Of course, both issues are beyond amaze, and I can't wait to add them to my magazine collection.  Just try and pick a favourite!

Kaia Gerber for Jimmy Choo S/S 2019 collection

Kaia Gerber has become one of favourites, therefore, I was excited to see her as the new face of Jimmy Choo's Spring/Summer 2019 campaign.  I love nothing more than a pair of Jimmy Choos, so I thought I'd share my picks for the season!

H&M x Moschino Runway Launch

It feels good to back posting here!  I decided to take a short break, but I'm back! 
I'm kicking off with a very cool collaboration between H&M and Moschino.  From the moment I heard about this collaboration, I knew Jeremy Scott had something up his sleeve.  Did he disappoint? Not for a second! And who was there to kick off the runway launch?  My girl, Gigi Hadid.. alongside her siblings, Bella and Anwar.  Naomi Campbell, Taylor Hill, Stella Maxwell and Candice Swanepoel also joined the model line up. 
The collection will be available at H&M November 8th.
