new york, new york

Our latest post for Vogue Spy Style is now up. I don't usually do a lot of outfit posts, but I had fun shooting this one with Rohan. I'm so in love with the Celine bag I got for Christmas (thankyou Ro!!) and the new sweater and heels are thanks to the amazing Bergdorfs and Barneys sales. Head over to Vogue for the rest of the images and credits. We have one week left now until we're back home in Sydney. Going to miss Brooklyn!

I didn't think it was possible but I have become even more obsessed with jewellery after two months in New York. I have very small hands so I have always worn tiny, delicate rings, but this coming winter I'm hoping to add a few more statement pieces to my current rotation.

That being said, I'm in love with the latest collection from ManiaMania, Performance. Photographed by Stacey Mark with Jamie Bochert as muse and shot in New York at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel - the imagery is exactly what I'm feeling right now. I can't say I'm looking forward to Sydney winter after just experiencing one over here, but at least my wardrobe will be weather-ready!

winter favourites

One of the few things I don't love about New York in winter is what it does to my skin! My face and hair are drier than usual and I have had to completely substitute evening moisturiser with face oil to keep my skin hydrated. One of the things I have loved doing though is buying new skin care and cosmetics over here (Nars and Bobbi Brown are so much cheaper than back home!) as well as picking up some great drugstore products. These are a few of my favourites at the moment, I'd love to hear some of your recommendations.

Face: Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser, Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream and Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste. Kosmea Organic Rose Hip Oil and Hydrating Rosewater Mist. Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35.

Body: Grown Body Exfoliant Reviving Pearl, Peppermint Ylang Ylang and Body Cream Intensive: Rosa Damascena, Acai & Pomegranate. Kiehl's Crème de Corps. C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve and Perfumer Body Cleanser Coconut.

Fragrance: Byredo Bal D'Afrique has been my signature scent since Paris, I'm also testing Blanche and Gypsy Water at the moment as an option for Summer. Curio Noir candle in Black Spice, really missing my candles!

Carven Pre-Fall 2013

Have been enjoying looking through the latest Pre-Fall offerings from a few of my favourite designers. Looks like it's love all over again when it comes to Carven! Inspired by Isabelle Adjani's character in Polanski's 1976 film, The Tenant, Guillaume Henry effortlessly combines structured, feminine silhouettes with just the right amount of cute and quirky charm. Can't wait for this!

new york winter: accessories

Our latest post for Vogue Spy Style is now up, featuring some favourite new accessories I have picked up on my travels. This Byredo 'Nécessaire de Voyage' travel case fits perfectly in my handbag so I can always have my signature scent, Bal D'Afrique, handy. It was love at first sight when I spotted it at Barneys!
