Vanessa Mooney's New Jewelry Collection Takes Us To Paradise | Jackie O My

     Vanessa Mooney never fails to catch attention with her bold jewelry designs and colourful photo campaigns; her Welcome To Paradise capsule collection is no exception.

This lookbook takes us on a magical journey through Thailand with model Cailin Russo as she explores Bangkok in style. The classic gold Vanessa Mooney statement pieces, such as the Avril Earrings, are all here, but what makes this collection particularly unique is the addition of friendship bracelets, beaded necklaces, and bow barrettes, bringing a girlish youth to the typical trends we've been seeing in 2019.

I particularly love the Bejewelled Rosary Necklace - it's so pretty! Which is your favourite piece?

Review: Summer Fridays Jet Lag Face Mask

Monday, 5 August 2019

     It's been forever since I've done a product review, and I am so ready to get back into the swing of things! I'm excited because today I'm going to be reviewing Summer Friday's Jet Lag Mask. I have been seeing this mask everywhere: Sephora, Instagram, and in magazines...this mask is everyone's darling of the moment. I'm looking forward to seeing the results of 2019's must-have skincare product, so without further ado, let's get on to the details.

Sugarhigh Lovestoned Brings Us All The Colours With Their Honolulu Daze Collection

Sugarhigh Lovestoned Brings Us All The Colours With Their Honolulu Daze Collection | Jackie O My

     You guys may remember wayyyy back in the day when I shared a campaign from a personal favorite brand of mine, Sugarhigh Lovestoned, the avant garde clothing brand for lovers and stoners everywhere (I'm only part of the former). In this lookbook, we're treated to Hawaiian-inspired swimwear and light, breezy clothing perfect for catching every eye during the lazy days of summer.

I'm a huge fan of this collection. In a way, it sort of feels like Sugarhigh Lovestoned getting back to their roots; things are more carefree and spirited. It's definitely not lazy, but it doesn't appear that they're trying too hard, either. I like that they can allow themselves to be colourful, maybe overly-so. They can embrace dorky trends like bucket hats and show their models lounging in the kitchen looking for a snack. This is the kind of photo shoot I love best: one that keeps the vibe cool, candid, and fun.

My favorite piece is (obviously) that colourful patterned bucket hat, although I can't seem to find it on their website. 10/10 would wear everyday.

     Ah, dear readers, today I can't take credit for this beautiful post. As it happens, the photography I'm sharing today I found on SF Girl By Bay. After squeeing over the bright and beautiful travel photos of Victoria's trip to Palermo, Italy, I emailed her asking if she would mind me sharing them, and she graciously said she didn't mind at all. So if you missed her Italian travel photo diary, you can now see Sicily in all its splendour. You're welcome.

Victoria manages to capture such a marvelous 60's vibe with her photography style and subjects. I feel she must have travelled from destination to destination on a vintage moped wearing a silk head scarf a la Audrey Hepburn.

I adore the architecture of the airbnb Victoria stayed at above. While her trip lasted only two days, she boasts of experiencing some delightful marketplaces and delicious restaurants.

For all the details, you absolutely need to check out the original post on SF Girl By Bay. Enjoy, and happy daydreaming.
