A Gift Guide For The Girl With Fine Taste

If gift giving itself isn’t hard enough, then throw on top buying for that one special friend/girlfriend/family member that has fine taste and just about every fabulous trinket that one could possibly own. To make shopping for her that little bit easier, I’m sharing my gift guide featuring 4 gifts ideas that she’ll adore!

Something Personalised…

If she loves one of a kind, personalised trinkets, then a piece from The Daily Edited is the perfect choice for her! Pick from endless leather swatches, monogramming options and emojis to make her leather goods as customised as possible. I personally love the combination of this smooth, pale pink leather with rose gold hardware and monogramming. Of course, I just had to keep things consistent with a matching phone case.

Valued at: $150

 Something Decorative…

If she loves tea and any opportunity to host a sophisticated brunch with the gals, then a beautiful tea set is just ideal! As a mega tea and china enthusiast, I particularly love Cristina Re Tea Ware. These tea sets are really quite exquisite with their decadent 24ct gold plated hardware and decorative feminine designs.

Valued at: $175

Something Indulgent…

If she love to spend extra time on her main mane, then why not spoil her with the gift of good hair days with a Stefan Xmas Bag. Featuring a stylish tote in 1 of 4 designs which you can fill to the brim with her favourite hair and beauty products, styling tools and treats.

Valued at: $49.95 + 50% off selected products

Something Scented…

If she loves the latest fragrances, then a scented delivery from Victoria Secret will be high up on her wish list. The new Intense Fragrance Mist combines notes of salted praline, coconut and creamy florals, making it a delicious summer scent. Another favourite of mine is the Blush Fragrance Lotion which smells of fresh grapefruit, blossoms and magnolia.

Valued at: $136

Va Va Voom: The 7 Hair Styling Tools Your Tresses NEED!

Looking to add more volume to your locks? Look no further fashionista’s as I’ve rounded up my favourite 7 hair styling tools to help create a little va-va-voom throughout your main mane!

alt="Hair Styling"


1. Schwarzkopf  Osis+ Soft Glam Prime Prep SprayIntroducing the perfect primer for your tresses. Helping to detangle even the most complex knots, simply spritz damp hair and style as necessary. Did I mention this one doubles as a heat protector against styling tools? Now that’s a double whammy!

2. Schwarzkopf Osis+ Soft Glam Plumping Shine Mousse. Having dead straight hair, I find my roots lack volume, so for me, a styling mousse is an absolute necessity. What I love about the Plumping Shine Mousse is that it gives my limp locks extra body without weighing down my the roots with product. But the best part? It doesn’t create that crunchy hair texture that other mousses do.

3. Schwarzkopf Osis+ Soft Glam Strong Glossy HoldsprayLet’s be real, that rigid hold and chemical scent of home brand hairspray just doesn’t cut it anymore. Instead, I’m opting for a more natural hold and texture of the Strong Glossy Hairspray. Not only does this product have a deliciously fruity fragrance, but it leaves hair with a healthy shine and is super easy to brush out.

4. Superfood Hair MasquesPart of a three step treatment, Superfood Hair Masques contain the highest quality ingredients including Macadamia Oil, Acai Berry, Argan Oil, Manuka Honey and Coconut Oil. Each treatment targets different concerns, helping to restore moisture, retain a healthy scalp, control hair loss and provide nourishment to damaged locks.

5. CloudNine Original IronIt wasn’t too long ago that I reviewed the CloudNine Original Iron, but it’s given me fabulous hair days since, with it’s heat control settings and speedy heating process. Definitely a must-have hair styling tool for creating seriously slick, straight hair.

6. Stefan Hair Brush. Brush out any tough knots with the perfectly pink Stefan Teezer Brush. Extra points go to it’s miniature “handbag friendly” size.

7. Stefan Blowdryer. Dry your hair in a speedy fashion with the two temperature setting of the iconic Stefan Blowdryer. Equipped with a detachable heat concentrator to minimise damage and control airflow, you can kiss those nasty flyaways good bye!

It’s so easy to style a chic ensemble when you are working with a monochromatic colour palette. Lately I’ve been drawn to pieces that feature a black on white print, as they create a light and airy aesthetic. So naturally these high waisted, striped culottes have been on high rotation. Did I mention the vertical stripe creates the illusion of longer legs? #instantpins for the win! Teaming with an asymmetrical top in the same tonal colour, I’m vibing effortless with relaxed structure, lightweight and breathable fabrics and killer accessories.

Speaking of killer accessories, I have been gifted the perfect tote for summer thanks to Stefan. With a two tone design and generous size, this bag is housing all my must-haves for summer – makeup, sunscreen, bikini and beach towel (for beach trips) and my current read (The Carrie Diaries). This fab tote is part of a Stefan Xmas Special, where you can fill it up with your favourite haircare products and take 50% off the total! Celebrate a season of healthy locks and fab hair by visiting your closest Stefan or shop online by clicking here!

Now that I’m finished my christmas shopping, I’m taking some much needed down time, starting with a walk on the water front, followed by a casual dinner date with the girls. Since I’m taking in the sunset and salty air I thought it best to pop in my DAILIES TOTAL1 Water Gradient Disposable Contact Lenses for a little extra support this afternoon/evening. Allowing for longer wear, these lenses keep my eyes hydrated and itch free, giving me #morecontacttime from day to night! Curious to test out these lenses? Make sure you pop into your closest optometrist to discuss your trial, or visit morecontactime.com for more deets!
