Earlier this week I visited the new Pacific Werribee, (it’s actually only 29 kilometres from Melbourne CBD), the new go-to fashion destination of the west which has just finished its $400 million redevelopment.

Those who live over in the west (myself included) now have access to a pretty impressive line-up of global and leading Australian fashion brands such as H&M, Uniqlo and an expanded Myer (which includes TopShop). The new Centre even includes Seed Heritage, Sportsgirl, Peter Alexander and a Mecca Maxima which is opening on the 9th of September.

Pacific Werribee is filled with natural light, marble floors and polished concrete. A little highlight for me was also the new relaxed seating areas that are equipped with their very own usb ports – the perfect finishing touch.

Morning dressing, made easier.

How I prep my wardrobe for the week ahead.

Firstly, you will probably notice that their isn’t much on this rack. That’s because this rack is my ‘secondary wardrobe‘. Think of it as a curated version of my entire wardrobe, that gets updated weekly.

If I am having a relatively slow week, not to much on – mainly working from home, a coffee date here or there, I will pull out lots of denim and t-shirts, a couple of sweaters, a casual trench. Even Nike leggings. Plus LOTS of sneakers.

If I have a busy week with a couple of events to go to, and I know I am going to be out of the house quite abit, I prep my wardrobe with fail-safe outfit choices – Plain tops, a few different blazers, some leather/suede pants, a statement coat. The shoes that get pulled for the week are a pair of nice flats, heeled boots and once again, sneakers never fail.

I always have a couple of accessories out – neck ties are a quick and easy way to look chic. And I am a sucker for anything with gold hardware – my Dylan Kain bag definitely gets a work-out most weeks.

  …

I find that updating my rack according to my weekly schedule – helps me always get out the door on time.

The Skincare Edit

Products I am currently using, and loving.

My skin has always been a little bit of an issue for me. Growing up I actually didn’t have many problems with it, but as I started approaching my twenties – that all went out the window. Since I was about 19 I have suffered – from what I would call, mild acne. I honestly cannot recall a time over those years where I didn’t have (at least afew breakouts) happening at once.

It wasn’t a big enough deal for me to seek professional help, but it was a big enough deal that I didn’t feel comfortable leaving the house without makeup – and that is no way to live.

Fast forward seven years (wow, seven years), I am now 26 years old and can quite clearly say that I had tired everything possible to clear my skin up. You name it, I’ve tried it.

   It got to the point where I wanted a therapist – for my skin.

I hated going to different salons, spa etc and having a different therapist each time. I never really felt like they cared about me, or my skin.

I reached out to Gry at Hud Skin and Body about 4 months ago, I had heard great reviews – plus, her spa is a Scandinavian interior dream. Not joking.

Since getting regular Enzyme Therapy, 1 courses of skin needling sessions and using their DMK home care religiously, my skin is the best it has been since I was a teenager. I am writing this post without a simple breakout on my face and the clearest, most even skin I have had in a decade.

..

At home I am using the following products (all DMK)  –

Deep Pore Facial Cleanser, Beta Gel, Vitamin C Serum, Betagen and the Revise A cream, Seba – E Hydrating Oil, Pore Reduction Tonic and Herb and Mineral Moisture Spray.

All products available to shop from Hud Skin and Body.

I was lucky enough to celebrate my 26th birthday last weekend at Cosy Tents.

Situated 15 minutes north of Daylesford is Cosy Tents. Your go-to glamping destination outside of Melbourne. If you’re like me and enjoy being outside in nature, however – the idea of camping kind of scares you, then you must try glamping.

The 5 metre bell tents are fitted out with a queen sized bed, 1200 thread count linen and goose down quilts to keep you cosy and warm (which comes in handy if you’re like me and decide to go in the middle on winter #hello3degrees).

Your tent also has it’s own wood fire stove – perfect for roasting a marshmallow or two.

I couple of weeks ago I was lucky to head out for a winter weekend away with my partner Luke at the Mansion Hotel & Spa in Wyndham, Victoria.

We were treated to an amazing meal at the hotels very own restaurant, Josephs. The next morning – after taking a walk around the incredible 10 acres of gardens that the hotel is situated in the middle of, we were off to the Mansion Spa for a relaxing couples massage.

To finish off the weekend, we headed (just down the road), to Shadowfax Winery for a long lunch in the sunshine. Delicious pasta and matching wines? Couldn’t ask for a better Sunday.

Christian Paul Hayman Marble Mesh watch

Introducing Christian Paul.

Classic silver, with a touch of marble. Now, this is the watch for me.

Past meets Present, with this minimalistic design, which is today’s fashion, but forever wearable. 

Not only is this watch perfect the way it is, but they have to option to be interchangeable.

So, say you love the incredible marble face, but think you might like a leather band instead, you can do just that.

Christian Paul offer an affordable yet chic style, which has definetly won me over.
