Hands up if you own a little black dress?
*90% of women raise their hands*
Women have been taught for decades that everyone needs a little black dress. And, yes, a basic dark dress is incredibly versatile in the wardrobe, but if you've been following me for a while, you know that...
...a large percentage of women don't look good in black.
Yes, it's true. It is far from a universal colour - actually, it's one of the most difficult colours to pull off.
And even if you can wear black, it's still probably not the best option, colour-wise. That's why, instead of a little black dress, I recommend investing in a little dark dress.
Or, an LDD!

I love following the trends.
I'm not ruled by them - to me, trends are something to be aware of to ensure your style stays current.
But it's also important to not let the trends define you. You need to develop your own personal style that is flavoured by the different trends as they come and go.
To me, trends are just a bit of fun!

To me, there's nothing like a bold lip.
Ever since I found out I was a Clear (one of the six colour codes) I've made a bright, bold lip my signature in terms of makeup.
But sometimes, a situation calls for a nude lip. Maybe you have a bold eye (it's important to balance your makeup - never do both a bold eye and a bold lip at the same time); maybe you want a 'no-makeup' make-up look; or perhaps you just prefer a softer lip look.
That's why I decided this week to give recommendations on which nude and bold lip colour to go for depending on your colour code.
So let's get right to it! First up...
I bought a few t-shirts the other day.
I work from home, so as much as I dislike it (I love getting dressed up), the majority of my wardrobe needs to be super comfy-casual because the majority of my time is spent in a super casual environment.
This means I need lots of t-shirts.
But just because it's a t-shirt doesn't mean I can only wear it in a casual outfit. T-shirts are actually incredibly versatile, and this week I'm going to prove it to you.
Introducing: the unassuming t-shirt.
It's Australia Day!
To celebrate, I thought I'd give you some outfit inspiration. The popular way to celebrate Australia Day is the classic barbecue with friends and family. The weather is usually stinking hot, so it's sometimes a challenge to dress in a way that keeps you cool, yet is still stylish.

Yesterday I posted on my social media pages (you can find me here on Facebook and here on Instagram) about wardrobes. I asked my community whether their wardrobes were more minimalist or maximalist. Here's the post:

Does this sound like you? Then you need to get out of your style rut... and quick! In this blog post, I'm going to teach you my five steps to getting out of a style rut.
Did you know that your eye colour is a handy tool to figure out what neutrals and pop colours work for you?
For everything from your eye makeup to accessories to the clothes you wear, if you wear the colour sitting directly opposite to your eye colour on the colour wheel, you can intensify your eye colour and make your eyes stand out!
Here's how it works:
I went shopping for a new swimsuit recently.
I always find it incredibly difficult to find a swimsuit, because I have a very unique body shape. I have a super short torso due to my severe scoliosis (curved spine), no waist and very large hips.
In fact, when I measured myself when shopping online, My bustline measurement fit into size M while my waist and hips fit into XXL! (How does that even work?!)
So trust me when I say I feel your pain. For most women, the swimsuit is the most-hated item to shop for. So I decided to put together this guide for you to make it a little easier! Here are my top 5 tips for finding a flattering swimsuit:
Last week's post on celebrities wearing their right and wrong colours (you can find it here) was so popular, I decided to write a second edition, this time all about hair!
