During Christmas and New Year, I relaxed in sunny Noosa, Queensland. Now, the time has arrived to joyfully represent my memories from one of my favourite places in the world.

These photographs reflect a beautiful holiday in paradise. I can definitely say that Noosa feels like my home away from home in Australia. There is so much to love about Noosa and its surrounding areas in the Sunshine Coast. The lifestyle, the people, the weather, the beaches, the nature, the food, the style, the vibes. I would love others to adore this place as much as I do, thus I have compiled my favourite places and activities for anyone to explore.

Amongst the maddening sartorial rush of global fashion weeks, I present to you my ultimate Matches Fashion edit. With a carefully curated selection of recent designer collections from one of my favourite fashion websites, these beautiful items encapsulate both the signature and distinct pieces in accordance to their brands. It’s apparent to me that one’s style is forever evolving, inspired continually by numerous collections every season. Most of all, I follow my ultimate fashion mantra, “If I like it, I wear it”.

Spin some records and listen to my new Spotify playlist for some creative inspiration.

Bisous!

It’s time for a pep talk. As my routine is slowly re-shaping and adjusting to change, it is imperative that I regularly exercise in order to maintain my healthy lifestyle. Despite constant “new year, new you” phrases, and ‘fitspo’, ‘detoxes’ and ‘cleanses’ being heavily featured on the internet and social media, I believe that exercise is the key to feeling great. In particular, I am returning to my active workouts including yoga, walking, running, and targeted exercises. Get outside or stay indoors and get moving. No seriously, sweat it out! Also, stay hydrated.

So for the brave, the bold, the unique, I present to you bright and motivating workout-gear style. Don’t forget a tinted moisturiser with sunscreen for protection, dark shades, and even a bold lipstick colour for extra confidence. Most significantly, enjoy yourself.

Paired with my pumping Spotify playlist (and a well-balanced diet), you can get fit and feel healthy this summer. Ciao!

Here is a small wishlist of beautiful, classic items that I believe would be lovely gifts. If you’re stuck for ideas, I hope you are now inspired. I wish you joy-filled holidays and festivities with family and friends.
