Ivy Park is here....

Ivy Park is here.. The activewear line we never knew we needed is finally here and its brought to us by the ever flawless Beyonce. Check out the first drop and get excited to be-yonce. 

The release dates says 14th April ( we assume this means in the US) but still a good day to mark in your calendar, and prepare for the onslaught of ‘single ladies’ vibes and ‘ who run the world - girls’ type feels. 

Happy International Women's Day!

Happy International Women’s Day! Lets celebrate all things women today! Strong, independent women are so in right now we just can’t get enough of our girls. As our girl leader Beyoncé said,

“Women have to work much harder to make it in this world. It really annoys me that women don’t get the same opportunities as men do, or money for that matter. Because lets face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define our values and to define what’s sexy and what’s feminine and that’s not on. At the end of the day, it’s not about equal rights; it’s about how we think. We have to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves.”

Lets show them who run the world!

2.    Tone down the flowy top with a slim fitted bottom. White pants or denim shorts are the perfect staple pieces to tie in your look.

3.     If dressing bold is your go-to, then don’t hold back with head to toe broderie. Neutral accessories are perfect to compliment this statement outfit.

A few pieces from our Girl & the Sun range suit this trend perfectly! 


The Friendship Date

I love my friends.

I also love going on dates.

 

It seems that in past a ‘date’ has only been reserved for romantic interests; only if you want to kiss someone is it acceptable to light some candles, cook them some dinner and finish the night with some star gazing.

I provoke this age-old notion with a WHY?

Whether I am single or in a relationship, my friends are and always will be one of the most important features of my life. So if I want to show them a little lovin’ of the friendship variety, and also am in the mood for a night of food, conversation and star gazing, than goddamn I am going to take my friend on a friendship date. 

But wait, you say, is a friendship date only limited to a night time dinner?

No! I exclaim. A friendship date can range from a totally casual friendship hang at the beach to a full-blown air-balloon sunrise. So to give you some inspiration for you and your bestie, here is a list of our top 10 friendship date ideas.

1.     Simple home cooked meal

Possibly followed by a chick flick and some cheeky dessert… 

2.    Picnic at a scenic lookout

Marvel at the beauty of the earth with good food and great company

3.     Café hopping

Try that café you’ve been talking about going to for so long – then try another! Spend the time with your friend catching up on more than just the basics. 

4.     Drive in movies

Popcorn, chocolate pyjamas in public…. Need I say more?

5.  Beach set up

Okay, so maybe it won’t look quite as spectacular as this – but all you need is a towel, a hat and a book to spend a beautiful day with a beautiful friend.
