For those of you who don’t know I have really oily skin, I’m talking UAE oil rig status and with that comes god awful sore pimples and other goodies.. TMI? okay well you get the picture.

So unfortunately I have committed skin care cardinal sin and use Proactiv as my current skin care routine, I know this stuff is pretty harsh on the skin but when you’re struggling with break outs and find something that works, you know I’m going to hold onto that with both hands. I have however been trying to find some more gentle skin care products to try and phase out my current routine and boy am I glad I found this little gem.

I came across this toner water when I was lining up at Lush with my arms full of as much Snow fairy body wash a girl could carry (a story for another time) and as I was waiting in the line going out the door, the lovely sales assistant introduced me to my skins new best friend.

This toner water is a blend of a Tea Tree Water (Melaleuca alternifolia), Grapefruit Water (Citrus paradisi)Juniperberry Water (Juniperus communis), *Limonene (*Limonene), Perfume (Perfume), Methylparaben. This toner is amazing, it’s calming on the skin and feels so refreshing and makes my skin look plumper. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to do that but my skin definitely looks more supple. Don’t let seeing the word perfume there scare you away either, I don’t notice a smell at all.

I have slipped this into my routine to replace my original toner and my skin didn’t react horribly, which in itself is amazing since I can’t change my moisturiser without my skin having a fit.

this toner retails for $9.95AUD for a 100g bottle or $19.95AUD for a 250g bottle (pictured above) It doesn’t feel like I’ve even made a dent in my bottle and I’ve had it for a few weeks now.

I apply my toner by holding the bottle a few centimetres away from my face and spraying it directly on my skin, you could also spray it onto a cotton round and pat it on your skin.

I definitely think it is worth the money and can’t see myself living without it now.

Wardrobe staples

Hey everyone, let’s talk about wardrobe staples.

The hype around key wardrobe pieces is something that’s constantly being talked about in the fashion world. And is it just me or are these ‘key’ pieces constantly changing? I’ve put together a set of real staples that I think most women should have.


Plain T shirts

Plain t shirts are a must in my eyes, they are so versatile and can be dressed up or down. I like to get mine in all neutral tones to make sure I get a lot of wear out of them, think greys, black, white, navy and cream colours.


Ahhh the little black dress, a well fitting black dress is great for dressing up or down and can be taken from the corporate office to dinner with friends it always looks chic and put together.


A blazer is a really quick way to dress up any look, throw it on over your plain tee and a pair of jeans and you take your outfit from casual to more put together with one item of clothing.


Finding a good pair of jeans can take forever but once you’ve found them they are your best friend. I think having two pairs of jeans is vital, I like blue and black so that I can mix and match my plain t shirts.


I personally love cardigans and throw them over anything and everything. I think again opting for neutral colours is best so you get a lot of wear out of them. I like beige, black and white so they can transition from winter/summer


I would say for ‘staple’ shoes start out with black pump style heels that aren’t sky high and are comfortable and a pair of black pointed toe ballet flats, I find this style looks alot nicer than the regular rounded toe but that’s just my preference


This is the biggest thing when it comes to staples I think, having some nice statement necklaces, bracelets and earrings means you can mix and match so many different pieces and make outfits look completely different just with accessories. I also love scarves for this reason.


I think if you are building your wardrobe and are looking for a handbag that can transition from day to night, whether you prefer large or small handbags I would opt for a neutral tone, either black or beige only because like with the cardigans and t shirts you want something that goes with everything and a neutral toned handbag does just that.

I think that these staple pieces are timeless and can come relatively inexpensive.

This is my take on the hot topic, what are your wardrobe staples? let me know in the comments
