Sydney Travel Guide: The Two Best Beaches That Aren’t Bondi

When I first visited Sydney, Australia, I immediately headed to Bondi Beach. I always thought it was so glamorous ever since Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton made headlines there ten years ago in matching Louis Vuitton bags. But to be honest, I was underwhelmed by the celebrity frequentedsand. It was so crowded! While I highly recommended having a cocktail at Bondi Icebergs (the iconic views are a must!), if you're looking for beach time, I would suggest Bronte and Manly. Here's a quick travel guide on my two favorite beaches in Sydney:

The Best Place to Take Photos of the Opera House in Sydney

This was my third trip to Sydney, Australia. Undeniably, the biggest photo op is in front of the Sydney Opera House. There are many places you can take photos of the landmark building. Until this trip, my favorite spot was onboard the ferry, which passes under the Harbour Bridge. But a moving boat doesn't exactly result in a good hair moment. Luckily, my photographer friend Angie, who is originally from Sydney, introduced me to the prime photo spot: The Rocks.

The Rocks is a historic area in the city centre. I've walked around the area before but this was the first time I visited the Park Hyatt Sydney.…

My Day-to-Night Dress Staple for Summer in Sydney

This week I've been fighting some major jet lag. I just got back from three weeks in Sydney, Australia. I had the most amazing time with my boyfriend and his family. I already gave you a peek into my trip in my #sydneinsydney series on Instagram. But this week I wanted to show you some highlights from my trip down under.

First up? What to wear. Summers are very hot in Sydney. Shift dresses were my savior. Most of the days, I'd wear a shift dress with comfy espadrilles (my fave brand is having a major sale right now!). I pretty much lived in these lace-up denim flats you might remember from this Opera House pic.…

Five Wearable Trends From the Golden Globes 2017 Red Carpet

I was incredibly impressed with the fashion at the 2017 Golden Globes. Actresses brought their A-game to the red carpet. And many of the trends are completely wearable in real life! Take mixed metallics, for example. I adored Felicity Huffman’s two-tone Georges Chakra jumpsuit, Sarah Paulson sparkled in silver and gold Marc Jacobs sequins as she accepted her best actress award and gold-medalist Simone Biles appropriately mixed gold with champagne.

You can easily get the look by mixing your gold and silver jewelry. Or go one step further with one of the mixed metal pieces below:

Inspired By Emma Stone’s Star Print at the Golden Globes

My favorite red carpet look at the 2017 Golden Globes was Emma Stone in Valentino. She told Ryan Seacrest that “it’s pink and there are stars on it.” It really didn’t need much more to describe its beauty.

The blush color look stunning on the La La Land actress’ pale skin and the silver stars sparkled as she walked down the carpet. While most of don’t have the occasion to wear a full-on glittering gown, I a blush metallic star-printed maxi dress and mini dress that could easily work for date night. Not a dress girl? Try a star print pink top with jeans or leather pants.…
