First light 💫 Ever since having a baby, there’s no such thing as a sleep in! Aria generally wakes up around 7-7:30am! 8am if we are lucky! Today she woke up at 6am! We decided to make the most of it and go for a refreshing morning swim! @elementsofbyron #elementsofbyron #byronbay

Meet Aria and her boyfriend James. 👧🏻🧒🏻 We always jokingly called them gf and bf! He is always so affectionate to her (by touching her ears) and sharing all his favourite toys with her! Swipe left 👉🏼 Olivia is like a big sister to Aria! She is always looking after her and letting Aria play with her hair apparently because Aria doesn’t have as much hair 😂 Kids are so cute! She’s so lucky to have James and Olivia to grow up with!

Late last year Aria and I flew to Sydney for a beautiful parents retreat with @biostimeau, a global leader in paediatric nutrition. Being a relatively new mum, I loved being able to learn from different leading experts from nutrition to exercise! Today I joined a bunch of incredible parents in celebrating the arrival of Biostime in Australia. Watch my Instagram stories for more! #biostimeaulaunch #nextgeneration

The proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

Fall decorating presents the opportunity to revel in luxury. Fabrics become more substantial, color palettes transition to rich hues, and just about every design decision for the season revolves around cultivating a cozy living environment. In an effort to help you make your space ideal for fall, a group of design tastemakers reveal the decor trends to expect in homes across the country this season, along with a few lessons you’ll want to consider.The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation.

We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.

 

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

People were absolutely astounded, at least in between that time that they read the Tweet or headline and when they actually go to the details, that Prada was selling a $150 “paper clip.” In reality, of course, it was a sterling silver money clip shaped like a paper clip (and when you really think about it, all clips really do the same thing). $150 is a lot for a paper clip, but it’s actually not that eye boggling when you look at other high-end money clips.
