Miranda Kerr for KORA Organics - David Jones Q&A








Miranda Kerr also popped up exclusively at David Jones on Tuesday as a collaboration for KORA Organics, her skincare range.Wearing a beautiful Erdem dress with a classic Christian Louboutin heels, Miranda alongside Vogue's Health and Beauty Editor Sigourney Cantelo, answered questions about her line and her upcoming goals. KORA Organics has been Miranda's passion project since 2008.

What I love about her range is that it caters to all skin-types, especially sensitive skin and is very gentle on the skin. I've only been using KORA for a week and a half, but it's done quite an amazing job at clearing up my blemishes and redness. Sigourney directed the Q&A, which was followed by a meet and greet and book-signing with Miranda.

Q. What are some of the ingredients used in KORA?
A: KORA uses all-natural organic ingredients, such as aloe vera. One of her secret ingredients in KORA is her raved Noni juice.

Q. What is Noni Juice and what is it like?
A: Noni is a tropical fruit found in the South Pacific islands and has been used for its powerful medicinal properties for thousands of years. Noni juice is believed to be amazing for the immune system and contains powerful antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin A, niacin and iron, which have anti-aging benefits. It's also great for digestive health as part of a detox.

According to Miranda, it's "palatable" and "smells a bit funny". (Personally, I've been taking Noni juice for about a month, and it's a great morning wake-me-up instead of coffee due to its distinctive taste and smell - I dilute about 20mls with a cup of cold water)

Q. What's one of Miranda's beauty tips?
A: Sometimes, Miranda would keep her eye creams in the refrigerator, as it's extra soothing when applied to de-puff the eyebags after a long day/night of travelling.

The book-singing and the meet and greet with Miranda was by far the most anticipated part of the morning. I had my copy of her latest book, "Empower Yourself" signed. I chatted to her a bit about the Kids Helpline of which she was the ambassador. She was extremely lovely and kind, taking five minutes with each person, despite the very very long line.

I hope I have the fortune to meet her again in the future - she is one of my fashion and lifestyle inspirations.

Fashion Weekend Sydney 2014

Hitting Fashion Weekend Sydney again this year, I was most excited to see the runway show styled by the very talented Margaret Zhang, from Shine By Three. The lineup included Nicola Finetti, Akin by Ginger and Smart, Talulah, Christensen Cophenhagen, Bec & Bridge and Ixiah.

Trends

Sports Luxe Minimalism

Clean sporty lines and racerback dresses dominated the runway at FWS. The sporty chic look was softened by drop-waist skirts or looser-fitting tops. As with all minimalist designs, a simple monochrome colour palette was chosen.


Silk Designs

Silks were also a hit on the runway. Colour blocking with silks was refreshed with a clean palette, often using blacks and whites to balance out the intensity.



Asymmetry and Cut-outs

When it came to skirts and dresses, many designers opted to forgo the side-split this year, instead focusing on the centre-split. Interesting cut-outs were also another big feature, overlapping into the sports-luxe trend.




Reflection

Gold, silver and gunmetal were solely used for accessories, but also as accent pieces on the runway. I personally was a little confused when these rather futuristic designs strutted down the catwalk, but I have to admit, they are flashy. The placement of the metals made these designs look sleek and not overpower the look.

Miranda Kerr for Royal Albert















Most of my friends would know that I'm a huge fan of Miranda Kerr. Her philosophy on life, her charm, her enviable figure - she is perfection.

So when this event came up on my radar, I knew I HAD to go. Donning two Victoria Beckham creations, Miranda unveiled her designs at Hyde Park, Sydney in the beautifully decorated Royal Albert pop-up store. She was joined by her grandmother, who inspired her to design the collection.
"Friendship is the basis of the collection. It's about having tea with friends and taking time to sit down and connect, especially in the busy world of today."
Holding over 150 years of history, Royal Albert's fine bone china are renowned for their quality and their beautiful aesthetic. The collection embodies her positive attitude and her love of peonies, which were adorned all over the store.

I bought myself a Tea Tip (Joy), banded in 22ct gold. I've taken to drinking lots of green tea lately as the weather cools down in Sydney.
