As you might know from my previous post, my second pregnancy has been anything but easy. Surprisingly my skin has held up reasonably well throughout, despite using no cosmeceuticals for the duration.
There’s nothing a good CC cream can’t fix however and below you’ll see some of the products used in this post, including IT Cosmetics ‘Your Skin But Better’ CC cream. I SWEAR by it. It’s pricy and that may be prohibitive for some, but if like me you see skin care as an investment then I think it’s worth it. These photos aren’t retouched, it’s all in the makeup!
On another note these uh-mazing earrings are from Australian label <a rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label="Kitte (opens in a new tab)" href="https://www.kitte.com.au/” target=”_blank”>Kitte. If you’ve not heard of them, take a look at what their website tells us:
‘Emerging from Melbourne’s performing arts scene in the late 90’s, Kit Cockerell fell into accessory design by chance. From fortuitous orders and opportunistic markets, commercial demand for her locally produced accessories exploded.In just a few years the small production line evolved into a thriving business and by 2000 the Richmond studiohoused a large team to manage local manufacturing for Australia’s largest fashion retailers.Since then Kit has worked with industry leaders including Sportsgirl, Kookai,Mimco, Witchery, Seed and Forever New and in 2014 launched her own namesake label, Kitte.’
And how did I discover these beauties?
Sitting behind a girl at fashion week earlier in the year, I noticed them dangling from her ears. I soon sparked up a conversation and discovered they were from Kitte. I then did what any self respecting fashionista would do – whipped out my phone and bought them on the spot. There and then.
Pregnancy arrived shortly after and with its sidekick morning sickness and the earrings have never seen the light of day since. They’re called the ‘Scarab Perla Gold’ earrings but check with Kitte to see if they’re in stock.
