JEANS UNDER $200

I am always obsessively trying to find the perfect something. This week, I seem to be all about denim. While I'm on the hunt for ripped/distressed jeans that can carry me through the seasons, I've found amazing deals on some of my favourite brands under $200.

HOW I WEAR MY: ACACIA SWIMWEAR BIKINI

HOW I WEAR MY: ACACIA SWIMWEAR BIKINI


I think in a past life, I was born on the beach. I grew up swimming (and quite fearlessly, I think). As the story goes, I was thrown into the pool at 3 months old. I progressed through the levels to become a lifeguard and at my prime, ranked top in my age group in the 50, 100 and 200 metre breaststroke. The bikini is now my favourite outfit. I could spend endless hours...

CLARINS TONIC BODY POLISHER


I grew up on Clarins products. Vietnam was once a colony of France and my parents knew both the language and their must-have products. Of course, I didn't know it at the time, but I would forever attribute that the Parisian label with the best of skincare. The TONIC BODY POLISHER is oil-based exfoliant that leaves my skin feeling moisturized. You only need a little bit to make the entire room smell like a spa. My skin is smooth to the touch and I'm ready to take on the day!

AQUAZZURA POSITANO MULTI COLOUR SNAKE PUMP

I can't even tell you the amount of hours I've put into searching for a snakeskin pump that fits what I picture in my head. These were the last pair, they were the perfect fit and they're so comfortable, I could sleep in them! It was meant to be. These are the exact pair from Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning campaign which may or may not make me love them more (she is after all, my style icon). I've basically paired them with anything and everything. Would you believe they're only 4 inches?

TRAVEL ACCESSORIES

TRAVEL ACCESSORIES

I always want to start packing the moment I book a trip. I'm excited to get away for the weekend (obviously), but I'm more so afraid of being ill prepared. There's nothing worse than being stranded on an island without your daily must-haves.  I stay organized with my iPhone and Moleskine. I make sure to carry an extra charger for any delays or layovers. I change into flats on the plane and bring my own blanket/eyes mask for a little nappy.

SKINCARE
It's incredibly dry for me on the plane so I pack tiny sizes of my favourite moisturizer from Kiehl's. I love Dermalogica's Purifying Wipes for long trips - they keep me feeling fresh. You can't go wrong with Lucas' Papaw Ointment. It works both for lips and any dry areas.

Happy travels!

HAIR BY FEKKAI

HAIR BY FEKKAI

It's June, which means we can all use convertible ready hair (or, if you're like me, it just needs to survive the windows being open).

I've been a longtime fan of olive oil based products--it was only four years ago that I was putting actual virgin olive oil into my hair. Olive oil is rumored to aid with restoring dry hair to its former lustrous self so when I stumbled upon Fekkai travel kit, I bought it and never looked back. The hairspray is amazing. It keeps everything in its place and best of all, it's 30% off at giltcity.com until June 23.
