Pint size princesses and superheros wandering around shopping malls demonstrates the heights and depths of their wardrobe potential. While boys clothes can sometimes be limited to jersey shorts and trackies in primary colors coupled with a tee’s , every once in a while I start calculating whether or not the largest size would fit me. That’s when I know I’m onto a winner.
Tumble ‘N Dry is starting the style lessons early. Well dressed adults clothing shrunken to fit your kids minus those horrible kiddy heels, string bikinis and tube tops (YUCK!). Sass and class that will hopefully prevent terrible clothing decisions when they are finally able to buy their own clothes. The boys clothes are ‘comfy ‘n trendy with my fave item being the little Norfolk shirt and badass Novato jacket.
The girls clothing is a perfect combination of classic and modern. Ice cream colored shorts, jeans and chic tees form a selection of clothing you don’t have to worry your girls may outgrow, style-wise. I have to admit, my heart melted a little when I saw the Oden Love set. I love their denim collection and the fact my discovery won’t have to be short lived catering for 3 size categories.
Last week marked the celebration of American lifestyle brand; Fossil’s 30th Birthday at their Bondi Junction store. 3 glorious decades culminated in the artwork installation pictured above, made from the iconic Fossil watch tins . A symbol of the infinite possibilities of life on the open road, we took photos and enjoying a culinary trip around America to match. Mini hot dogs, fried chicken, hamburgers, cake pops and popcorn in the company of Sydney creatives and the musical stylings of The Voice’s Alex Gibson.
The custom made car will be on display at Westfield Bondi Junction until the 5th of October, after which it hits the open road and heads over the Emporium Melbourne shopping center from the 9th to 12th October. If you are feeling inspired and want to take a tin home, you should definitely pick up a watch. I have a Jacqueline steel watch which I am completely in love with paired here with my Fossil leather clutch. If sales and handbags are more your speed, I have my eye on the Vintage Archive weekender and memoir diary clutch. For the men, there’s the Estate casual leather backpack, which if I’m honest I want too. Yes I am a very greedy girl.
Champagne celebrations, the right mood and a spring night calls for a tried and tested favorite: vibrant jumpsuit, duster, dark lips and sleek hair. While they say you are only as old as you feel, it can be said that you are only as good as you feel too. Whats more reliable than a 30 year old classic?
My mums superstitions have often been a source of frustration. Where on earth did she get the idea that you cant buy important things on Tuesdays? Others however like her hair care do’s and don’t have proved to ring true. Post baby and bleached hair, this has never been more evident. Today I thought I’d share some of her tips and test out some hair tutorials.
Bear in mind, my hair is still in recovery mode. It was a combination of pregnancy, bleach and using the wrong shampoo and conditioner that left me feeling I should just chop the whole lot off. I was using quite an expensive brand previously and it just dried my hair right out. Opting for another higher end brand, I found the shampoo was just too strong for my fragile hair and the build up was not helping matters. Finally out of desperation, I uses my husband’s Sunsilk detox for men and the results were instant. From there it just made sense to go and get the right Sunsilk for me. This is essentially based oh how you treat and wear your hair on a regular basis. Don’t worry, I’ve got the whole range displayed here for you.
Do 1: Sleek bun.
The key to this is the perfect straight shampoo, a little argan oil and some hair spray. It’s a new favorite easy quick hairstyle for me.
Do 2: Big and messy!
Some days I just can’t be bothered getting the straightening iron out. I just want easy volume and wind tousled hair without too much frizz. For this give the frizz defense a shot or if you have colored hair like me, the colour defense will work well to stop your hair from looking rusty quite so fast. Sleep in a plait and chuck some home made salt spray in and you are ready to hit the beach in your boho dress.
Do 3: Knot up do.
This baby literally took 5 minutes to do and is perfect for days when your hair is being unruly. All you need are a few bobby pins to secure it all in place and off you go. Try active brilliant shine to make those little knot details show or longer and stronger so you hair is actually knot-able and in a good way. All you need now is the tutorial.
I’m sure by now you’ve seen enough of my face so here are Pixel Mumma’s aforementioned simple hair tips:
1. Never wash your hair at night if you can avoid it, particularly if you have longer hair. You are more likely to get headaches, the cold or dandruff
2. Never tie wet hair. It’s a dandruff guarantee and no one wants an itchy scalp
3. Put hair oil or tonic on your hair one hour prior to washing whenever you can manage it. You are guaranteed healthier, shinier hair in the long run.
Got all that and want more tutorials? Thanks to Sunsilk, here you go:
