OPT for healthier options - Part 2

By Loving Tan on 30 April 2014 click here to comment

LOLLIES This is the worst one that gets me, but I find always having bananas and apples around is a complete life saver. Also if you want to be a bit naughty get some dried fruit. Dried apricots are delish and so are dried cranberries! ASIAN FOOD Asian food shouldn’t technically be that bad but our western version, sadly has been turned into deep fried all you can eat style food. But, if your craving that amazing taste and a little rice- Go fresh sushi! Yum, filling & won’t leave you with a belly ache! PASTA So , everyone loves Bolognese here- it’s obvious!&nbs... continue reading

JUICES TO SMOOTHIES We all know juices aren’t all they are cracked up to be in terms of health with all that excess sugar. But if you must have it, juice your own – or even better just eat the fruit and drink some water. Not gonna cut it? Try making your own health smoothie, you can put them in jars and leave them in the fridge if you make extra too! Here at Loving Tan, we make our own delicious smoothies every morning. Grab a banana, some rice milk, coconut oil, spinach & chia seeds and blend away. Tastes amazing and also keeps you going all day! SOFT DRINK TO SPAKLING WATER Soft drink’s a tricky one, most people don’t actually love all that sugar- it’s more the bubbles. Try sparkling water... You may just... continue reading

By Loving Tan on 16 April 2014 click here to comment

A printed out-there piece Whether it’s shorts, a tee, dress, pants or a statement necklace- go bold or bright. These pieces always give you a huge uplift. When you are dressed in colourful shades studies have shown you feel happier and more confident. And you know what they say ... Confident = HOT!! Perfume If you are meeting some friends for lunch or even a guy ... actually even if you are at home lazing around in bed – just spray yourself. Choose a sophisticated smell, something that makes you feel special. One of my friends has named her fav scent the ‘hot perfume’ and it works – Every time she wears it she feels hotter – it’s a mental thing, but a great thing. Plus, everyone is attrac... continue reading

Make anywhere romantic

By Loving Tan on 19 March 2014 click here to comment

Now that the weather is cooling down and you may be wanting to get cosy at home, we have some great tips to make any room feel warm, snugly and romantic! IN THE BEDROOM A padded headboard is great because it screams luxury and makes you feel like staying in bed all day and all night. Chandeliers are perfect for soft lighting and look ultra romantic when they glisten. Another thing to keep in mind is flooring- if you have tiled or timber floorboards they can tend to feel a little cold / not so comfy so opt for a great faux fur hide to make lazing around in your room a treat! Also any vanilla scented candles or sprays are perfect for a romantic homely feel. Research shows that the smell of vanilla triggers your brain into thinking of home and love –Awesome! IN THE DINING... continue reading

Hot trends this Autumn

By Loving Tan on 5 March 2014 click here to comment

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL It feels like just yesterday that tartan was in; now it’s been about 10 years and it’s already back in! You would think that the look would have been renewed but nup, still the same trend of grunge coloured tartan mainly worn as a skirt! We love these skirts with anything that reminds us of the younger/school years. The memory of ‘you can’t sit with us’ tee quoted from everyone’s fav oldie Mean Girls. This style of bag and hat are great because they look very school girl - yet are appropriate to wear and won’t have you mistaken as an actual school girl. The boots add a more matured grunge effect! This looks great with either a light tan or a really dark tan! ORIENTAL ARMOUR ... continue reading

Blogs we love - part two

By Loving Tan on 12 February 2014 click here to comment

So, it’s been a while since we bought magazines into the office, mainly because blogs are kind of more accessible, you don’t have as many ads and we love a good scoop into another fashionistas life! So we thought we’d put a bit of a hit list together for our own readers of blogs that keep us coming back! This time we’ve got more aussies! FASHION TOAST We love Rumi, and have for years! She is the queen of effortless style. She can wear a loose t shirt dress and boots and set a whole year of trends off! She does mainly wear a lot of black and white, but re creates it every time. Her style will never die.. So if you are looking for some street style inspo, Rumi at fashion toast is your girl! ... continue reading
