Base Layers

This Scanlan & Theodore crop top has become one of my favourite summer pieces. When I'm not wearing it with culottes, I like to layer it with a loose silk shirt on top and a black skirt on the bottom. This one has a little side split so it's nice to have the oversized shirt on top to balance it out.

Banana Chia Smoothie

I can't get enough of smoothies during summer, they make for a great snack or healthy breakfast on the go. This year I have been trying lots of different smoothie and chia pudding combinations so I thought I would share one of my favourite recipes with you.

Banana Chia Smoothie

1 banana
1 cup of almond milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon hemp seeds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Serve with an extra sprinkling of cinnamon if desired.

Notes: This also tastes great with hazlenut or coconut milk (you could use rice or oat milk too), for extra nutiness add a teaspoon of almond butter and if you're post-gym you can try adding a serve of raw protein powder.
 

Work Space

Gathering inspiration for our sunroom/office which I am looking forward to giving a refresh over the holidays.

I want to hang a few more prints up on the wall, create a cozy reading nook and declutter my desktop ready for the new year.

During my week in Auckland, I had the pleasure of meeting the team behind Sans [ceuticals]. I first found out about their products through one of my favourite online stores, Mychameleon, and after trying a few of them out for myself I became an instant fan. I was very lucky to also have my hair done by Sans Creative Director, Matt Benns, who gave me perfect messy waves just in time for the Kate Sylvester show,

The philosophy behind Sans is Purity, Potency and Performance - making for a gentle and effective range of products to help improve your skin. Two of my favourites are the Bio Active Exfoliant and Baobab Body Cream, both of which have become part of my weekly skincare routine.

Head over to Sans to see the full story.
