Natural skincare that I'm onto this week: REN Rosa Centifolia cleansing balm and 
Dr. Hauschka Revitalising Mask. There's been a noticeable shift in the weather this 
past week and these two products are helping soothe, clean and hydrate my skin. I've 
been washing my make up off with the cleansing balm then hopping in the bath and 
relaxing with the face mask on. Ideal for the cooler months.

Also loving this deep dark purple nail colour from Revitanail and these bracelets I picked 
up in Bali which I recently discovered under a rock at the bottom of a forgotten bag in 
my bedroom.

New haircut = can't stop touching my hair, as demonstrated in these photos.

The leaves are falling so it's officially autumn and this top from Once Was has become my
 go-to during the transitional season (and I'm fast learning that in Sydney that means cyclone 
one day, beach day the next!).

What could be the most Australian fashion show ever?
How about emptying the iconic Icebergs pool and turn it into a runway and have the
waves almostbutnotquite splashing over the edge during the show?

Welcome to Ten Pieces.

We're always talking about our morning beauty routines and night time skincare but what about
that boring part of the day: mid day?

 photo REN Rose Gold oil Estee Lauder brush on glow BB pen_zpsupxhyef5.jpg

A couple weeks ago I suggested doing a 'weekly favourites' of sorts. Not groundbreaking, I
know - but I thought it would be a good way for me to show you what I'm using myself -
rather than just doing longer features on single products (which I will still do too). 

This week it seems I'm being drawn to all thing rose gold. Estee Lauder's Double Wear BB 
Glow pen, which I decided to give a go as a Touche Eclat alternative and I've been very
impressed. REN recently launched the Moroccan Rose Gold Glow dry oil that is nourishing
my skin in this ever changing weather (and making that last bit of tan really shine thanks to
the 'glow' factor). And staying on the glow-train theme is this Brightening Essence from 
L'Occitane which is a concentrate that evens out skin tone and brightens the complexion.

It's crazy to think it's been almost four years since I started shooting backstage. I remember 
my first show - Michael Van der Ham - like it was yesterday. The excitement of being in the 
thick of it all. That's why I'm so glad that my work in beauty allows me to be there. This time
I was backstage with Redken...

The biggest worry my friends tell me about when it comes to skincare is eyes.

Backstage at One Fell Swoop. It's interesting to see how MBFWA compares to London and
Paris. I've been shooting backstage this week (and still going!) so keep an eye out for more
behind the scenes.

It feels good to be backstage again.

Thank you Redken for having me backstage at the show.

It's always important to be inspired by others. That's how you come up with a new idea - to 
write, to photograph or even just a new thought to ponder. So I thought it was mighty time 
I did an inspirational post, of photos - shock! - I didn't take and let the photographs that 
inspire me in life, beauty, fashion and home speak for themselves...
