Hair Changes, Graphics & Weddings

4 August 2015

So I got about 5 inches of my hair chopped off which was quite a momentous decision for me butttttt......turns out, very few people seemed to see much of a change which confuses me. Maybe I change my hairstyle too often so there's no fixed hair look associated with my face anymore. I might decide to go even shorter - we'll see.

To be honest, I went for the shorter look for various reasons - change is always fun but also, my hair got a bit damaged over winter and it needed this cut, I'm also trialling some products to try and rejuvenate it but more on that to come. I'm loving having shorter hair though and a big thanks to Gordon at Toni and Guy who patiently explained to me exactly what he was going to do before he did it.

Beauty : Summer Pedicure

3 August 2015

Whilst great sandals are something I believe every woman should own, they're worth nothing without great-looking feet inside of them. By great-looking feet, I mean no dry skin, clean and nicely-shaped toenails and ideally, also, fabulously painted. Travelling always causes havoc to my feet leaving them looking anything but stylish so I tend to plan a pedicure to coincide with my return. This time I visited Ayur Veda in Santa Venera - the same salon that specialises in eyebrow threading that I've talked about here. 

Outfit Post: Sea, Blues & Watches

30 July 2015

Having lived in Malta for most of my life, sometimes I tend to stick to the same places and forget to go 'off the beaten track' so to speak. Case in point, this beautiful rocky beach at Qawra - Ta' Fra Ben. I know some people prefer sandy beaches, but there the sea is really quite lovely - warm and clear and it's a sheltered bay too so the sea is rarely choppy.

In other news, the folks over at Daniel Wellington sent me over this super stylish watch - if you want your own you can get it at 15% off using carolinefashion. My reason for being in Qawra was actually the launch party and this was my outfit of choice.

Styling Work : STRANDED with ATARAXI

28 July 2015

At the last edition of Malta Fashion Week, I had the pleasure of working with and styling an editorial for - British designer Rebecca Haddaway - brand ATARAXI. A London College of Fashion graduate, Rebecca is a very talented designer who is totally working the recently hyped trend - gender neutral fashion. The idea of gender-neutral fashion is an interesting concept, whilst it might not necessarily work on all bodies and with all styles, when done right it can look effortlessly stylish. Buying and wearing men's clothes is something French women have actually been doing for a while now so it's about time we stopped labelling and just said unisex.

Rebecca's work is fresh, exciting and original - I'm especially in love with her wicker backpacks!

Outfit Post : Running around in Capri

I found all of the Amalfi Coastal towns I visited to be beautiful, stunning and unique. Capri, however, is somewhat magical and special. It's pretty, picturesque, polished, swanky and somehow also quaint. On a side note, whilst there, I also ate the best ice cream flavour ever - Caprilu - a concoction made of ricotta, lemon and almonds - insanely delicious.

This was the hottest day of the trip - really, really hot, which was a pity because there are so many beautiful shops in Capri, but in that heat who on earth feels like shopping?

Beauty : Makeup that Lasts - MaxFactor Reviews

27 July 2015

I tend to favour more expensive makeup brands over lower-priced ones, mainly because I've found cheaper makeup to be less long-lasting and if there's one thing I hate, it's spending time creating that perfect makeup look, only to have it melt away a few hours later. Living in Malta and our hot summers don't exactly help the situation.
