The Perfect Spring Swimsuit

Yay, finally spring is here! And the weather is slowly getting warm enough for me to wear this swimsuit down by the beach. I'm in love with the fabric detailing and cut of this swimsuit. It's so pretty and feminine and 100% my style! I actually can't wait for summer this year, not only because I'll be able to wear this amazing swimsuit but also because I'll *hopefully* be finished uni forever and actually get to enjoy my summer! 

Have you guys bought any new swimsuits for summer yet? Let me know in the comments below!

Speak again soon,

Skincare Review: Harvest Garden Natural Skincare

Hello everyone! Today I have a short and sweet review of a few products sent to me from Harvest Garden Skincare, and straight up I can claim that all of these products are amazing. Harvest Garden are a local Australian brand that makes amazing smelling and effective skincare and bath products, so hopefully my review of these products might help you to discover a new brand and potentially some new favourtite products!

French Green Clay, Aloe & Matcha Face Masque
To make this mask, the powder needs to be mixed with some water or any other liquid you might desire. You then paint on the liquid and it drys into a hard clay mixture on your face. This mask has been a lifesaver when my skin is having a little freak-out. It claims to revitalise skin, reduce irritation and refine pores, and I completely agree with this statement. In particular, I think this mask would be great for oily skin! So if you need a mask to clear up your skin fast, I can highly recommend this natural yet effective product.

Lemongrass, Patchouli & Calendula Bath Salt Soak
This is the best smelling bath soak I have ever smelt. And that's saying a lot for me. I love a good bath soak and this product was no exception. The fragrance is so relaxing, especially after a long day running around on your feet and I cannot recommend this product enough!

Tinted Rose & Geranium Lipbalm
And finally, this pretty rose tinted lip balm has quickly become my favourite lip balm of all time. So much so that this is the second time they've sent me products and I specifically asked for it again because my last one ran out, and basically I am hooked.  It's the perfect everyday colour! It also has a super pretty rose scent and is made with shea butter, so it is super moisturising! If you're looking for a natural coloured lip balm, look no further!

If any of these products sound like a product you need in your life, you can check out Harvest Garden's products here!

That's it from me today as I need to get back into study, but I hope to post another blog post next week. I hope you are all doing well!

Casual Sunday in this Cosy Linen Playsuit

Supre Linen Jumpsuit, Supre Beret, Dissh Boutiques Top, Betts Shoes, Tiffany & Co Necklace

Happy weekend guys! I've had a very busy week this week and the next few weeks for me are not going to be any easier as my final ever exams inch closer every day. I have so much study to do, so my next few posts will be short and sweet! But I can't wait to be done with uni soon and hopefully have the time to put more effort into this blog. 

Anyway, I was sent this cute linen jumpsuit from Supre the other week, and honestly, when I first unwrapped this playsuit from the parcel, I didn't like it. I was actually not planning on turning this outfit into a blog post. But after styling it with these boots and a cute beret, I'm actually really loving this outfit. Plus the relaxed fit is super comfy and perfect when you've just eaten a buffet lunch!

Hope you guys are all well! Speak soon,

Skincare Review: Ocinium Ecdysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse

Today I have a review for you guys featuring the Ecdysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanser by Ocinium.
And guys, I am actually very excited to talk about this cleanser. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm obsessed with a good skincare product that actually works the way it claims to. They would also know I'm a bit of a geek (you have to be if you're doing vet!) and love analysing and researching the ingredients in my skincare products and this gorgeous product was no exception.

First of all, the cleanser has a mild citrus scent which I really enjoy while using it wash my face. The packaging is absolutely beautiful, I love the black glass bottle! The instructions say to use on damp skin in circular motions and rinse, but you can also leave it on the face for 5 minutes for a mini mask to soak up all the powerful ingredients.

Some of the star ingredients include:

  • Aloe vera leaf juice - amazing for hydration!
  • Glycerin - another great hydrating ingredient that also facilitates the absorption of serums that you might apply after the cleanser.
  • Lactobacillus fruit ferment extracts - Lactobacillus bacteria assist in the fermentation process of papaya and coconut to produce fruit enzymes that work as natural chemical exfoliants to the skin, leaving your skin bright an glowing. The Lactobacillus bacteria also act as a probiotic for the skin. One recent study from 2017 has shown the Lactobacillus group of bacteria to have antimicrobial properties when applied topically to the skin, meaning these good bacteria aid in eliminating nasty pimple-causing pathogens (organisms such as bacteria and fungi that cause disease) and help to correct dysbiosis (an imbalance in the skin's natural flora). What an amazing little organism!
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) - known to help clear up any nasty blemishes. One study has also shown that Niacinamide helps to prevent scarring due to pimples.

After using this cleanser for the past month now, I can report that the combination of powerful ingredients has left my skin glowing and radiant. The number of pimples around my chin and on my cheeks has also significantly reduced. The texture of my skin is smooth and the redness from my recent blemishes has slowly faded.

If you're looking for a cleanser, or any skin care products to combat problem skin but are also natural and incoporate organic ingredients, I highly recommend checking out Ocinium's beautiful products! I have another review of their Immortelle Vitamin B3 Serum, which I also recommend. Click here for my review of this product too!

I hope this review was helpful and informative for you guys! I hope I didn't get too carried away in the science of it all for you. Let me know in the comments below, what is your current favourite cleanser? Would you like to try this cleanser from Ocinium?

What Winter? | Daisy Dresses & Shearling Jackets

Just a quick little outfit of the day post today to say hi! Firstly can I say where the heck has winter disappeared to? I wore this cute daisy dress from Dissh Boutiques yesterday while exploring New Farm in Brisbane on an unusually warm Winter's day. And here I was all geared up for the so-called coldest winter of the century.

Anyway, I love the pattern and the colour, and feel like it's perfect layered with a shearling coat to give just a little bit of warmth.  It was such a fun day, but now I am back into the uni work. I am currently on my last ever week of 'holidays' before I become a vet! It's so surreal! And while I'm a little scared (or actually a lot), I'm also super excited. But first another 3 assignments, 4 exams and 12 weeks of placement to battle through. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and little life update. I really want to write some more in-depth posts soon. I was thinking about my journey through vet school, or my university experience in general, and how I've been juggling uni with my blog this whole time. I think it would be a great way for me to reflect on these last few years of my life that are quickly coming to an end, and so that you guys can get to know me a little better. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
