MEDITATE

A lot of times, meditation can seem difficult to practice. Here are some tips to focus effectively and really gain what mediation has to offer.

-Create the environment and get comfortable. Dim the lights and sit cross-legged or lie down comfortably.

-Focus on your breath. Notice where you feel the inhales and exhales: the nose, chest or belly. Follow the rise and fall of the breath.

-Notice when you’re lost in thought. When you notice your mind trailing off, see if you can shift your attention back to simple in-breaths and out-breaths.

-Treat yourself kindly. How you speak to yourself in that moment when your mind wanders is an essential part of the practice. Be kind. Begin again.

Ft. Eucalyptus Oil

While for some the season brings joy, for others come the season of allergies aka sneezing fits. We swear by an age old all-rounder that will keep you in the pink of health for good. The Australian native Eucalyptus oil, comes with an abundance of antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties that have the power to cure any and every allergy that come with the rainy season. All you have to do is:

Take a Eucalyptus oil steam

Take a steamer or a big bowl with hot water and add a few drops of the oil; inhale the steam with your nose and exhale with your mouth. Repeating the process for five minutes everyday can cure the most persistent of allergies. Try it and thank us later!

Why it’s Okay to Wear White on a Rainy Day

June 28, 2018

Monsoon is right around the corner and the time to push away white is here. On the contrary, we can’t stop thinking about how and why a harmless white becomes a no-no on such days. While psychology explains how white’s a positive colour, think taking that extra ‘risk’ and flaunt happiness this season, because why not!

Pick Nude Underclothes

The obvious case of becoming see-through can be a thing of the past, thanks to nude under clothing. Opting for nude under clothing that match your skin tone is a smart way to glide through a rainy day in white. While choosing an outfit, opt for thicker fabrics like jacquards or crepes to double cross the chances of looking transparent.

Get Rid of Dirt

We’re all a little extra careful while wearing white; however, skipping to wear it just because it’s a rainy day is a terrible excuse. Yes it’s white, yes it may get dirty, but rain would never permanently damage your clothing! For starters, use waterproof makeup to prevent unwanted makeup stains on your clothing. Opt for fabrics that are easily washable in warm water; and use a mild bleaching agent or lemon juice to get rid of any prominent marks.

Think Short Ensembles and Layering

Opt for shorter hemlines like a biker dress or a pair of shorts instead of long maxis or trousers to lessen the chances of getting completely drenched and/or stained. The best way to carry white on a rainy day is to layer it on top of a coloured tank top. Throw a white tie-up shirt over a colourful cami and team it with a pair of high-waisted shorts.

Jewellery for Every Face Stucture

June 25, 2018

Accessorizing is key when it comes to bringing a look together. A piece of jewellery can either make or break your look.  It’s essential to opt for pieces that not only compliment your outfit, but also suit your face structure, which we often overlook. Our team created a guide by selecting styles for various face shapes only to help you pick flattering pieces for yourself!

Pick earrings that balance proportions, we explain how:

  1. Women with rounder face shapes should opt for dangle-drop earrings or long tassels to give length to the face, thus make it appear slimmer.
  2. Women with oval face shapes can carry almost every style, however, triangular shaped earrings or fan shaped earrings help accentuate the cheekbone structure.
  3. Opt for big and chunky earrings or hoops if you have a smaller or heart shaped face structure to bring volume to the face.
  4. Go for over-sized statement studs if you have a long and narrow, or a square face structure to balance the overall proportion.

Opt for necklaces that accentuate your face structure, we explain how:

  1. Women with round face structures should opt for long, t-shaped or v-shaped necklaces to give the appearance of a narrow face.
  2. Women with oval face structures can opt for any style, however, long rounded or full-necklaces work best for the shape.
  3. Chokers should be your best friend if you have a long and narrow face structure, to accentuate the neck, thus drawing attention away from the length of the face.
  4. Opt for big statement necklaces if you have a smaller or heart shaped face structure to draw the attention away from the chin area, thus making it appear more proportionate.

Summer Wardrobe Checklist

May 28, 2018

“Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.”

Too bad, we live for summer to flaunt our breezy chiffon dresses. Big floral, small floral, abstract floral, give us a hint of floral and we’re on board! With a ruffled hemline and padded bodice, our powder blue Floral Crepe Frill Dress comes off as the season’s freshest look. For when you want to throw on something effortlessly and yet create a look, the Tori Tie Jumpsuit comes in handy. Go all out and add vibrance to your look with floral printed bags such as our Adele Mini Embroidered Backpack and Liana Embroidered X Body Bag.

Off summers and shoulders

Flared sleeves have evidently become an all time favourite, but we just can’t resist the chic off shoulder look. Opt for the very flattering Harriet Arrow Neck Shirred Bardot top, and team it with our classic white Sophie Soft Culotte for a stylish summer look. A day-party look calls for a pastel pink Evangelina Off Shoulder Dress, a soft smoky eye and a big blow out. Unlike the usual horizontal stripes, the Briella Cross Ponte Dress is an absolute statement dress, with a body hugging fit and a peplum hemline. Pair it with a comfortable pair of Polly Mid Block Heels, and make heads turn!

Fancy some lace?

A layer of lace, never hurt anyone. From our classic pastels such as the Valery Lace Mini Ball Dress to our sharp monochromes like the Theresa Lace Pencil Dress, there’s a range of lace looks to quench your summer thirst. Pair them up with the nude Oriana Heeled Sandals, Lottie D-Ring Clutch and metallic accessories, and you’re good to go!

Tie the knots

What good is a summer wardrobe, that doesn’t include flirty cuts and bare backs! Our breezy Annabelle Twist Front Blouse is a perfect blend of romance and fun. An everyday look with the Stripe Button Back Tie Tank and the Sunny Twist Front Tank paired with our Poppy Mid Rise Ankle Grazer Jeans, brings back the fun in casual. A playful take on the corset trend – our white Kalley Lace Up Front Cami, teamed with skinny denims such as the Heidi High Rise Ankle Grazer is a must-have this season!
