So why add bananas on the end? Well, bananas are one of my favourite fruits to bake with and lets be honest #bab sounds so much better than #bu. - Love AJ - x x x

I love it that everyone is like “bell bottoms/flares” are back… Im like, when were they out?

I feel as a woman with a tiny waist and a big bottom that these are the perfect fit for my body. They elongate my legs, provide shape to my body and most of all, they are just crazy comfy.

What are your favourites from the images above and where do you suggest to buy the best bell bottoms from at the moment?

Peace and Love in advance for your suggestions fashionistas.

Casa Vintage Beach!

In Australia, we use the terminology ‘pole position’ when we park directly in front of where we want to be. In Gili Trawangan, we landed in this position at ‘Casa Vintage Beach’. Situated right on the beach, my rooster and I were able to chill out and watch the sunset whilst drinking icey cold Bintangs from glass jars and swinging in tree chairs. We stumbled across this little gem whilst riding to salute the sun, is this not the best location ever?

Growing up in Western Australia, I have been spoilt rotten by our sunsets, so this was a new experience for me. The sun set over a glorious mountain, through a fluffy cloud which left the best after glow one could ever imagine.

Nestled in home made chairs, and vintage decor that has not interfered with mother nature, it was indeed a magical experience that I recommend to anyone who is hitting up Gili Trawangan.

Casa Vintage Beach serve Caribbean food, fresh coconuts and smoothies. You can chill in their hammocks, listen to epic music and chant by their bonfire. There is also a vintage shop and a spa that is open, however, the sunset bar is where its at. – They’re located after Exile, and before Villa Ombak Sunset if you are coming from central.

Happy travels.

Today called for an “I MISS MY SISTER” blog post. We snapped these dope images out the front of Fremantles epic Woolstores. According to my Freo walkabouts, they are renovating this building into NYC apartments? If thats the case then, I urge all Freo lovers to get down asap and take your happy snaps in front of this awesome building as it won’t be here forever.

In regards to me missing my sister… I’m throwing all positive vibes back to her side! This day meant the world to me.

If you have a sister – hug her right now.

If you want a sister – haggle your mother.

If your sister is coming (Georgia) hold your breathe.

Love, light, energy and soul sister vibes to everyone.

Skin Made!

As a model and skin enthusiast, I’m quite particular as to what products I use, especially on my face. We are all aware that we need to drink copious litres of water per day, though, sometimes this may be difficult to do due to the busy lives we all seem to be leading nowadays. With the right skincare and balanced diet, your skin can be flawless without being pregnant or having a post sex glow.

Whilst scrolling through my all time favourite social media tool ‘ Insti’, I stumbled across ‘SkinMade’. Immediately drawn to how organic and natural their page was, I wanted to get in touch with the beauties behind this skincare revolution.

I emailed SkinMade and received a beautiful reply from their team. Positive, honest and enthusiastic, they happily sent me a wee package of products to try. – They actually do this… YOU CAN BUY SAMPLES. Winning!

I’m an advocate for organic, hand crafted and environmentally friendly products. Not only is this an Australian product and I love to support ‘home grown’, we are taking care of our environment whilst using these products as well as ourselves.

SkinMade sent me a scrub, cleanser and bright skin oil. My favourite was the cleanser, as the smell of lemongrass takes me back to living in Thailand, so it was a lovely nostalgic smell that also left my skin feeling soft and looking radiant. Each product had a lovely scent, from almond, pomelo, lemon myrtle or oat.

I highly recommend these products for ALL skin types and look forward using more SkinMade products in the future.

 Step 4: Smile and Scrub!

Benefits?

A coffee body scrub can help eradicate cellulite because when the caffeine it contains comes into contact with the surface of your skin, it helps redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of more cellulite. Coffee scrub can also prevent veins due to the caffeine acting as a  vascular restrictor which shrinks blood vessels and therefore helping reduce the veins appearance.

Coconut oil is a babe of a massage oil for the skin as well. It acts as an effective moisturiser on all types of skin, including dry skin. It also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. Coconut oil also helps in preventing premature ageing due to its well-known antioxidant properties.

Almond oil is rich in vitamin A, B and E, which is amaze for skin health. Also, almond oil improves the complexion of the skin that retains glow.

Finally the blend of Cocoa, Vanilla and Cassia oil is added to harmonise and balance the sense. This blend creates a sense of comfort and reassurance,  reduces stress and helps combat exhaustion.

Waste Not Want Not!

Omg (looking into your cupboard, full of clothes) – I have like absolutely nothing to wear!!! Says every women, everyday.

Stress no more ladies…

These are some of my old faves that I have pieced together. My skirt (yes, skirt – not dress) is from Cameo The Label. My saggy singlet hails from SportsGirl, it had an old hole in it, so I ripped the back open and tucked it into my skirt. Wrapping around a vintage belt and popping on some $5 gladiator shoes… you’re good to go.

Have a play with your old maxi skirts, find a colour to match your skirt and put a belt on to break up the colour. You don’t have to keep buying babes.

Vive La Difference!

DSC_0363DSC_0365DSC_0374DSC_0377DSC_0384

A relationship between two people usually consists of the yin and the yang. When we don’t see eye to eye with our respective other, whether it be with a partner, friend, family or co worker, it is quite common that we throw in the old saying ‘opposites attract’ and be done with it. We think of opposites attract, what does it really tell us?

Opposites, or perhaps more accurately, “complements” do attract. Introverts and extroverts, morning people and night people, impulsives and planners, steady plodders and adrenaline junkies, adventure-grabbers and security-seekers

The French view the old saying ‘opposites attract’ as ‘Vive La Difference’ in which we don’t just use  the word ‘opposites attract’ as a bandaid but rather we celebrate those differences.

It is important during hard times in a relationship to write down the differences you are having, once you have written them down, discuss them and then find a way to celebrate them.

Remember, we need to love and continuously send out good vibes to our world and our lovers.

Who’s going to be next on your list to celebrate Vive La Difference?

As if little Emily Muco wasn’t the cutest human being ever… She then hand made a BANANA bag. – HOLA!

Whilst hanging in yard, my soul sister and I decided to take a few happy snaps with our favourite fruity accessory of the summer.

Miss Muco designs and hand crafts each piece, with a sense of purpose and affection to highlight the wearers individuality.

The vibrancy of her colour choice is legit perfection for how fruity the summer has been. She also designs dresses, necklaces, bikinis and head pieces.
