If you want to look good, you gotta feel good. 

BEAR took us on a trip to the Hinterlands of Newrybar recently, where we wined & dined, soaked up a plenty of sun, learnt about Gin, rested by the pool, and laughed endlessly and conversed over all things controversial (political, racial, the future etc. etc.) - this is what happens when you squeeze a bunch of "farshan" bloggers, stomach full of wine into a mini combi, Byron style. I also did this in a fashionably manner without spilling any red wine on a beautifully white KITX dress, clap clap for clumsy I. It was a Winter escapade into a weekend of balanced pleasures. Everything that sums up BEAR. 

Prepping for the weekend. Nath takes Perform, I take Protect.

Prepping for the weekend. Nath takes Perform, I take Protect.

Protect. Perform. Restore. Explore.

Protect for immunity. Perform for clarity. Restore for vitality. Explore for balance.

habits change into character.

Pick your one, and start every morning with the one dosage - don't mix and match, it's more about the consistency of taking the one. Coming into flu season, I picked Protect.  Each dose is quite potent, so if you take anymore than one, it actually doesn't do more than it already does. 

Protect: Vitamin A + Echinacea | Coming into travel and flu season, the vitamin I cannot live without always incorporates immune strengthening properties and echinacea. Whether it be in tea or tablet formula, I never miss a morning. I'm a bit of a crazy person when it comes to not getting sick!! There's nothing sexier than feeling 100%. If you don't feel good, you won't look good. I've been taking these everyday after breakfast for about two months now, and I've beaten Nathan's flu and missed out on the nasty cough that has been hopping around - which is a shocker because if Nathan gets sick, I usually do as well. So, TA-DA these really do work. I'm not fooling anybody & I would never endorse or work with any product or brand that I don't believe in - especially when it comes to all things health and beauty! I've recently sent my Mum over in Bei Jing to test them out as well, all ingredients are natural, carefully selected AND.... drumroll please, MADE IN AUSTRALIA. So, you're in safe hands Mum. 

THANK YOU - Saasha and Sam  for including Nath and I into the BEAR family and for such a heart warming and inspiring weekend - we are stoked and feeling reeeaaal dandy.  I'm moving onto the Restore next. 

PS. YOU're welcome!

Thursday was Hermes's annual beach party, and this year - was situated in no other than Carraigeworks! A little dislocated from the usual beach location, but we were all in for a surprise - in true Hermes style.  We were welcomed by Australia's managing director and lead through mirrored art installations lit with prints and colours that were true of Hermes's scarves.

Dress code: Barefoot

Stated on the official invite, this would come to make sense as we were lead to a shoe concierge, floor covered with artificial grass, and later... the main room. Hermes brought the beach to Carraigeworks, and with zero flaws.


I couldn't help but feel like I was in a 80's beach party, glitz and glammed - Oversized floating inflatables, French waiters in vintage tees and spirtzin' faces, explosion of pastels and fluoro's, DJ set on a specially built diving board, a half pipe installed with skaters fresh from Bowlarama skating throughout the night, 180 curved projection screen with films cut from 80's James Bond to Blue Lagoon, watermelon cocktails, mini meat pies, sand shipped in from Perth (!!), the night felt like an endless fashion circus - only the best kind, with catered everything possible. This, including thongs for guests who didn't want to enter the bathrooms with no shoes (even though they were already lined with artificial grass). Every little thing that could've had a fault, didn't.

An escapade for city livers, always perfectly lit, always accurately slow - just the perfect amount, a place where one returns with full of salt, a lighter approach and messier hair. A place where Spell calls home, and a place many wish they did..!

Last week, Spell launched their first ever swimwear launch (available ONLINE here), shot in Mykonos and photographed by my friend Brydie Mack - campaign HERE. The girls fed us with all sorts of love and adorned us with all things flowy, fresh & just the right amount of bohemian.
