Bella Cosa in Italian means "beautiful thing" which is the simplest way to describe Three of Something's latest collection. Those that know me, know that its a rare sighting to see me in pants. I'm often conscious about being bottom heavy and avoid them like the plague so I stick to dresses and skirts but Three of Something brought out a different side to me this week, I loved the folds around the waist and the comfortable fit down to the ankles... I think I may be a bit more adventurous this Autumn/Winter ;)

As for the Leo Top, this lightweight and not easy to crease which is perfect for me. It features a buttoned keyhole and a high-low hem and also comes in Winter White - you guessed it - perfect for winter. With the colder season coming up it means that a lot of layering is bound to happen and its hard to dress up your cardis, drapes and scarves with a top that doesn't look to over the top. This is why I look for delicate details like keyholes and peekaboo mesh to keep that feminine touch!

Not sure if you could tell by the photos but today's topic of choice is - hair! Unfortunately for me I've recently been having more bad hair days than good. Split ends have started popping up everywhere and I guess thats the cost of dying over my natural hair colour, so what did I have to do to fix it? Yup, go for the chop!

When it comes to hair length I've always stayed on the safe side and never strayed higher than the shoulders, I would love to be the type of girl that could pull off a bob but sadly I'm not :( so while my hair is at an awkward length I've been looking at different hair extension options and on the hunt for 100% human hair extensions that aren't treated with chemicals that look like the real deal.

Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to Great Lengths human hair extensions. Check out my favourite before and after shots from Great Lengths below:

Great lengths supplies 100% human hair extensions using "remi hair" which is 100% virgin and not treated with chemicals to give you the au naturale look. Non-remi hair extensions are usually treated with chemicals that strip the strands which have to be covered with a layer of silicon to give it body and shine. However, this silicon protection isn't long lasting and can leave the hair dull and brittle again after a few washes which is why Great Lengths is much longer lasting, easy to brush, doesn't tangle easily and easy to pull off!

Another great thing about these extensions is that they're double-drawn. Double-drawn extensions have all the small unwanted short hair manually and tediously removed to reduce the amount of fly aways for better length and volume. The preferred bond method of these extensions is a mess-free and damage-free "keratin bond" which makes it a lot more longer lasting than normal extensions.

Not only has every strand of hair used in Great Lengths extensions been donated willingly, but every Great Lengths hair extensions that you buy will play a part in building a slum school in India as part of Great Lengths' participation in the Anganwadi Project. Which means you'll have good hair while doing a good deed :)

Shilla - Evolution Monochrome

Friday, March 14, 2014

 Today's outfit features a hint of tailored aesthetics with two of my favourites from the Shilla Evolution Monochrome collection click here to view the full range. I'm really embracing the short suit trend for the upcoming season, they're perfect for the weather and extending your leg length and the un-creasing nature of this polyester suit is just the perfect cherry on top!

I wore this short suit as a casual weekend outfit with a DIY wrap top but if you're after a more polished look then all you need to do is slick back your hair, add some lippy, belt the shorts and wear some heels ;)

Field Days Playsuit by St Frock  // Photos by: Tito-licious

Autumn is the perfect excuse for chiffon playsuits and auburn hair (to match the fallen leaves!). Those that know me well should also know about my obsession with effortlessly-easy-to-wear-chiffon so the Field Days Playsuit couldn't have arrived in St Frock's "What's New" section at a better time.

When it comes to choosing a playsuit there are a few things I like to keep in mind:

  1. What is the playsuit made of? Opt for something that is mostly made of a lightweight, loose and drapey fabric. The top half of the playsuit can definitely be fitted and tight but to balance out the top, the bottom of your playsuit should be fluid to help elongate your legs.
  2. What size is the playsuit? I'm usually in between sizes so this is a question I always have to ask myself when deciding on one size but when it comes to playsuits the general rule would be to choose the bigger size because a looser playsuit is much more flattering than one that is too tight.
  3. Can it be belted? I love buying things that I can wear to any occasion. If the playsuit looks good with a belt then you can easily take it from day to night with a good pair of heels! 
The only thing that I would change about the Field Days Playsuit is my lack of floppy hat, I forgot to bring one on the day of the shoot but besides that it was a pleasure to dance around in, guess you could say I had a field day in it ;) haha

If you love the Field Days style, it also comes in a cape version which you can view by clicking here

Nothing better on a cloudy day than lounging around the house in a comfy pair of uggs and now with these water resistant biker boots I can also dance around in the rain! Australian ugg boots are commonly known for their luxurious soft interior but casual exterior boots which is why I've always debated about taking them you can imagine my surprise when I laid my eyes on this leather pair :)

   photo uggaustraliabikertallboots_zpscdeb3959.jpg

These Tall Biker Boots are part of the tall sheath collection, made from leather and laced with 100% Australian double faced sheepskin on the inside which means no socks needed ;) They're extremely lightweight, completely water resistant, come with an easy zip and ridged soles so you don't slip and slide when you're outdoors. If black isn't your thing then they come in 11 other colours (including chocolate, grey and navy blue) and if you're like me and you're in between sizes, I would go with the bigger size because they come with buckles which you can use to secure them as tight as you please.

There are over 30 styles to choose from from the Australian ugg boots website but the leather and the Swarovski encrusted ranges were definitely my top two picks. With the recent visits from torrential rain they definitely came right on time, I'm a happy camper when my toes are toasty and having beautiful boots are just the icing on top :)
