With summer ending soon, I couldn't help but wear something off-the-shoulder everyday and this top has certainly caught my eye with its pretty ruffles and daring sky blue tones.
The denim overall has long been one of my wardrobe staples and I especially love wearing them during the summer months. Most people think that overalls are just a casual item but I want to break that myth today by showing you a great way to dress up this chic, cool and versatile style.
Did you know that honey can be used for more than just a way to sweeten your afternoon tea? I too didn't know the beauty benefits of honey until Wedderspoon contacted me about using Manuka to create a mask.

From the rainbow colours, music and friendly loving faces I was so proud to see a community and group of people come together.
