Round Beach Towels – Summer Trend

One of the big trends for Summer this year is Round beach towels, more and more stores have been releasing their own designs over the past couple of months.

There are many designs to choose from, with prices to suit different budgets. They would make a great Christmas gift also!

Here are a few of my favourite designs

Fruit Print

Two of the hottest fruit prints/objects this summer are watermelons and pineapples, there are many different homewares and beach accessories around at the moment that are in the shape of these fruit or have the fruit print.

If you are fan of quirky or cheeky sayings, you’ll love the two designs below. I really love the ‘Beach Please’ one from BEACH BELLA…who doesn’t love a good pun? (or a bad one)

 You can’t go wrong with monochrome, it’s understated, but goes with everything! I absolutely love Peter Morrissey’s designs, especially the palm trees! He will always be one of my favourite Aussie designers.

 Single colour

The towels below are a great option if you want one that is a single coloured pattern on white rather than the black & while monochromatic ones. The Kmart round towel is a vibrant yellow and is the most affordable round beach towel, that I’ve come across.

PS. Happy 1st day of Summer Australia!


Swatch Saturday: Ulta3 superstar collection

Apologies for the lack of posts, the last few months have been crazy…I’m only just catching up with organising upcoming posts. My first being on a few of the products from Ulta3 Superstar collection.

I was kindly sent a few of the lipstick shades and a nail polish from the Spring/Summer ’16 Ulta3 Superstar collection (currently in selected pharmacies)

Ulta3 Superstar


Ulta3 Superstar Collection Swatches

ulta3 superstar*Ulta3 Nail polish in ‘Meteorite’- I love this nail polish shade, it’s not like any other polish I already own. I would describe it as a Metallic lilac, with silver shimmer.

*Ulta3 lipstick in ‘Shooting Star’- This would have to be my favourite of the three shades, an almost nude pink with a slight shimmer to it. I think it really suits my cool skin tone.

*Ulta3 Lipstick in ‘Supernova’- I have a cool undertone to my skin, so anything with a yellow or orange base does not work well with my skin tone. This shade is an orange based red (more orange than it appears in the photo) with a slight shimmer to it.

*Ulta3 Lipstick in ‘Moonlight Mauve’- This shade I would say is more pink with a mauve undertone, rather than straight up mauve as the name suggests. I found this shade to suit me quite well also.

Ulta3 Superstar collection includes nail polish that retails for $2.30 per bottle and lipsticks are $3.95 each and 4 different glitter eyeliners, from selected pharmacies.

I might create a makeup look with one of the lipstick shades shortly
