These pics are from a recent holiday to Palm Cove, just North of Cairns, QLD and that pool behind me is where we spent pretty much eight hours a day for a week! Safe to say Ash LOVED the pool.  He is still doing lots of imagining and make believe stories about us flying back to our 'new house' with the pool so we can go for a swim :) 

Onto the outfit, a simple black slip dress is so perfect when it is hot, sunny and humid, and of course a hat a necessity.  I loved this iconic Deus cap I found at Surftitch, also grabbing it in the blue colour way.  I only thought of buying it last minute before the holiday and was so lucky that delivery was the next day, so I had it just in time!  Surfstitch have a great range of brands for the whole family, in fact I was so tempted to the get the Adidas Stan Smiths for Ash also! And I still might ;)

Facial Co.


A beauty post for you today with my most recent online discovery, Australian owned and operated online skincare and beauty store, Facial Co. and some wonderful Australian made and owned cosmeceutial skin care products by Asap.

My favourtie of all was the Asap Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub. I had actually been trying to find the perfect scrub when Facial Co. contacted me and this scrub has ended my search.  Scrubs which I had purchased at the supermarket (where I usually buy beauty products) were always too scratchy with big particles, this facial scrub is lovely and fine, and feels like it is shedding those dead skin cells without damaging my skin.  Plus the smallest about goes a long way and leaves my skin glowing.

To compliment the facial scrub is the Asap Daily Facial Cleanser which is gentle and non-drying.  I love that it has Glycolic Acid for protection against free radical damage and White Tea, an antioxidant with anti-ageing properties.  The big 4 0 is not far off now so I'll definitely take all the help I can get!

Finally the Moisturising Daily Defence SPF50+; for me a day moisturiser has to have the sunscreen step covered.  I am extremely time poor and if I can skip a step that is excellent!  Plus I always get confused, no matter how many times I read Amazing Face, as to what order sunscreen and moisturiser are supposed to be put on.  This solves all of that! Again this moisturiser has anti-ageing ingredients, another absolute must for me.  One tip for this one is give it a bit of a shake before use, I found it separated just a little. 

Facial Co. offer free shipping Australia wide, free samples with every order and a 30 day return policy. They have a huge selection of brands with expert advice available - well worth a look.

Floating Crystal Bangle- thanks to The PeachBox

Wearing some beautiful arm candy from The PeachBox.  I think these two bangles are going to end up being high in rotation, they are such classic styles that will work seamlessly with so many looks.

This is what I wore last week end on a pleasant Summer's day, simply switching the heels to white Birkenstocks and hair in a top knot to dress this look down for a trip to the zoo.
