It is less than a week until Christmas.. wait what! ..where did the time go!! The days are flying by in the lead up to Christmas & the end of the year!
For me it has been a year full of all sorts of achievements, exciting collaborations, interviews, adventures, learning, ups & downs but all great experiences to learn & grow from. This past year I have learnt a lot about myself and have learnt that if something isn't making me happy, causing me stress or not benefiting my wellness than it is necessary to take a step back & reevaluate.
My advice to myself & to you is looking ahead into the new year and many years to come it will be a necessity to do the things that will benefit our health, happiness & wellbeing. Do more of what makes you happy!
ON A FASHION NOTE I STYLED THIS FOREVER NEW OUTFIT AS INSPIRATION FOR A CHRISTMAS LUNCH OUT AT A RESTAURANT OR A STYLED HOME EVENT. IT'S A BIT OF A DIFFERENT LOOK FOR ME, BUT YOU KNOW ME I LOVE TRYING NEW FASHION TRENDS & WAS EXCITED THAT FOREVER NEW HAVE JUST OPENED A FLAGSHIP STORE IN BRISBANE TOO! KIM AND I SHOT THIS LOOK IN BRISBANE ON A BOILING HOT DAY THIS WEEK, THIS SKIRT WAS PERFECT TO KEEP COOL!

MY TOP 3 AUSTRALIAN XMAS DAY STYLING TIPS
CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA IS ALWAYS QUITE HUMID & HOT..BUT I ALWAYS LIKE TO THINK OF IT AS A SPECIAL OCCASION & WANT TO WEAR SOMETHING NICE OUT TO CHRISTMAS LUNCH!
#1 WEAR LOOSE CLOTHING: TRY TO WEAR A LOOSE DRESS, OR FLOWING SKIRT & TOP TO ALLOW YOUR BODY TO BREATHE. THERE ARE SO MANY CUTE MAXI DRESSES, BOXY SHORTER DRESSES & FLOWING SKIRTS AT THE SHOPS AT THE MOMENT.
#2 HAIR UP: IF YOU HAVE HAIR ANYTHING LIKE MINE IT WILL BE LIKE HAVING A BLANKET OVER YOUR NECK ALL SUMMER LONG..WHEN YOU KNOW YOU AREN'T GOING TO BE IN AIR-CONDITIONING TRY WEARING YOUR HAIR IN A PONY OR MESSY BUN. IF YOU STILL WANT TO WEAR YOUR HAIR OUT TRY TYING HALF OF IT UP SO IT IS NOT SO THICK.
#3 LIMIT MAKEUP: MAKEUP AND HUMIDITY JUST DONT SEEM TO MESH WELL, EVER. TRY A LIGHTER FOUNDATION OR BB CREAM THAT WONT CLOG UP YOUR PORES AND LET YOUR SKIN BREATHE. I SAY WEAR RED LIPSTICK TO GET A LITTLE FESTIVE TOO!
