May Favourites

1. Walnut Melbourne Meg Pewter Cap Flats | Available here
I've been loving these flats from Walnut. Not only is the label based in Melbourne, but the shoes are absolute quality - super comfortable (thanks to the full leather lining) and look amazing when paired with my typical all black outfits. Love the neutral snake skin print and the metal toe cap detailing! These flats actually have a small hidden wedge just to give you a few extra centimetres. If you're looking to purchase from Walnut, just keep in mind that these flats run a little narrow, so it's best to go up a size in my opinion.

2. Bombardier Designs | Vogue Brides Australia 01 2013
"10. Bright Ideas - Individually named candles can act as guest placecards"
I'm so beyond excited that Kayla Bombardier's candles (Bombardier Designs) have been featured at number 10 for Vogue Brides' 100 Wedding Essentials - "From blooms to baubles: Vogue's ultimate guide to all the must haves and special touches to help you on your way". Such an achievement and I couldn't be more happy for such a hardworking entrepreneur like Kayla. Make sure you pick up the double pack of Vogue this month which comes with the bridal magazine.

3. The Accessory Store Leather Cap | Available here
I love wearing hats in winter. And like a lot of you, I've been LOVING the leather cap trend and my favourite can be found from The Accessory Store! This cap is made from 100% sheepskin leather, so it's super soft. I've been sporting this leather cap to uni a lot - love how it adds a little style to an otherwise casual outfit and of course, perfect for hiding under for bad hair days.

4. Esther Boutique Maiden Top | Available here
As you all know all too well, I've been going crazy for everything striped recently (including my new Blesse'd are the Meek Grainline dress). No surprises here! And just on a side note, I've also been loving the little look book I've styled for Esther boutique this week as well!

5. ROC Eyewear Calvin Sunnies | Available here
My new favourite sunnies of the moment! I have these in the Red as well and get so much wear out of both colours. These sunnies are PERFECT for people like me who drown themselves in black clothes, the reflective colours add all the colour you really need.

6. ELEVEN Give Me Clean Hair Dry Shampoo | Available here
My amazing hair dresser Joey Scandizzo (Joey Scandizzo Salon) and the well known beauty photographer Andrew O'Toole, have recently teamed up to create their new hair care range, ELEVEN Australia. I've been testing out the ELEVEN range for the past couple of weeks and am really loving the styling products - in particular, this dry shampoo! I'm a huge fan of dry shampoo (I tend to use them more for adding volume to the hair as opposed to minimising oiliness) but found they are never actually undetectable in the hair or they disperse way too much product. This dry shampoo is completely invisible even on my dark roots and the spray disperses the finest mist. Oh and the fragrance is absolutely AMAZING.

7. Muk Thermal Protector 
LOVE Muk products in general. Just an amazing Australian hair care brand with killer products that work. I'll be the first to admit that I've been totally slack with the whole heat protector deal because I never found anything that I thought was holy grail - and I was happy just using a leave in conditioner prior to blow drying and styling. However I thought it was time I use a proper heat protectant (especially to protect my blonde hair) on top of my leave in conditioner. I've found a gem in the Muk Thermal Protector and I cant recommend this enough! The smell is a lovely and I can tell my hair has gotten a lot more healthier, shinier and softer than before when I wasn't using it. I also LOVE the Muk Argan Oil treatment which I'll do a review on real soon!
