Rue Stiic: Barcelona Campaign - Jackie O My

     Looking for the perfect wardrobe for your next jet-setting adventure? I've been eyeing this Australian-grown brand for the longest time, and I'm so excited to finally be sharing one of their Campaigns with you.

Founded by Jillian Beed in 2003, Rue Stiic has perfected their merge of Californian and Australian coastal style with Bali influence. Based in Byron Bay and handmade in Bali, this carefree bohemian brand "embraces a travel lusting lifestyle". Sounds perfect to me!

     Summer is finally almost here, and although I'm more of a cool-weather girl, I'm definitely excited for all the amazing warm weather style trends I've spotted this season.

A Day In The Tulip Fields

A Day In The Tulip Fields | Jackie O My

     Happy Saturday! I hope everyone's having an amazing weekend so far. This week I visited the annual tulip festival in my little British Colombian town. It was beautiful and so colourful! It was also a little windy - my hair wouldn't cooperate!

At first, I was unsure whether I should publish these photos or not. They would have turned out better if I had dressed up, but lately I've been embracing my tomboy side when getting dressed. On this day, I was comfortable in my Keds and jeans. I'm also wearing my current favourite sweater, a Brunette The Label one I picked up in a local shop. So comfy!

     It's been forever since I've done a shopping editorial. Sadly, my past swimsuit edits were deleted during my site redesign. Naturally, I couldn't resist writing a new one when I saw all these colourful swimsuits!

I absolutely adore one-piece swimsuits. They're such an awesome throwback to the 80's and 90's. They remind me of being young and Summer camp. The bold colours on these suits perfectly capture my mood lately. I've been in a bit of a rut for the past few months, both emotionally and style-wise; now I'm ready for good vibes, and these tropical vibes feel like a breath of fresh air!

The only things lacking in swimwear catalogues this season are the slogan one-pieces we saw an abundance of last year. We need more sassy suits! If you know of any awesome ones, let me know in the comments!

Wellness Diary: 05/05/18

Wellness Diary: 05/04/18 | Jackie O My

     It's official: I'm one month into my fitness journey. I hope you are closer to reaching your wellness goals than I am because I have not done as swimmingly as I had hoped to.

If I've learned one thing this month, it's that major lifestyle and diet changes are not easy. It's not a simple matter of deciding not to be unhealthy and saying no to your cravings at each meal time; it's avoiding that unhealthy habit dozens of times each day until you finally, begrudgingly, give in and order a cheeseburger. Afterwards, I'm left with a slight shame and a half-hearted promise to eat broccoli the next day.

How To DIY Your Brand Design With This Free Template - Jackie O My
Brand Inspiration mock-up I created. Photo sources: 1234. Logo: Naomi.

     Since starting a design board on Pinterest, I've been noticing a lot of beautifully made brand boards. I found myself thinking 'hey, why don't I have one?'. These boards are typically created by professional designers, but today I'll show you how you can DIY your own brand design kit. You can use it as inspiration for your branding now, or use it as a starting point to help a professional to refine your style later. Let's get to work!
