BTS "Cabin Fever" Look Book







In a secluded country cabin in the hinterland, the surroundings are lush and the aura is radiant. The landscape is a playing field for floating, frolicking and reminiscing on the sweet memories of summer camp.

Cabin Fever follows the adventures of Kristina and Suzy who pass the days with piggybacks, swimming, fruit picking and campfires with a magical backdrop of rolling hills, creeks and streams

With a killer wardrobe, these besties get around in denim, sneakers, printed tee’s with plaid and prints to add a little country style.



Photographer: Janneke Storm

Styling & Art direction: Ainsley Hutchence of Sticks & Stones Agency 

Models: Suzy  from Asha Model Management & Kristina from Viviens Models, 

Track: Mia Wray 








Cabin Fever launches tomorrow - keep your eyes peeled!!

BB Stylist Collective with Nicola Cross




Introducing the second member of our Stylist Collective - Nicola Cross. A kindergarten teacher Monday to Friday, Nicola spends her days with paint on her fingers and nursery rhymes on her mind but when the clock ticks over to 5pm you'll find her in her pjs with a top knot watching game of thrones. 

Her style ranges from bohemian to sporty luxe, but one thing that never changes is her love for hats! She'd rather have flowers in her hair than diamonds on her neck. 

For this month's edit, Nicola chose outfits that reflect herself the most, with each style showing off a different side of her style. 

Her top pick is the Paramount Playsuit Sunflower that made her feel like she was hitch hiking her way back in time to woodstock. 


Stay tuned for more of Nicola's Boho Styling of BB exclusive next month!

Lamington Pancakes




We all love lamingtons, we all love pancakes, so why not combine the two?! Coconut and chocolate is the ultimate combo and doesn’t have to be unhealthy as seen through this sugar, dairy and gluten-free stack. 

Serves 2

Pancakes

  • ¼ cup buckwheat flour 
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp almond meal 
  • 1 tbsp mesquite 
  • ¼ cup coconut yoghurt (coyo) or greek yoghurt, if not dairy-free 
  • 1.5 tbsp coconut nectar or pure maple syrup 
  • 1 tbsp macadamia butter (can substitute almond butter) 
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 2 eggs, separated 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 


Chocolate sauce:

  • 1 heaped tbsp. cacao 
  • ½ tbsp coconut nectar or pure maple syrup 
  • Dash hot water 
  • ½ heaped tbsp tahini
  • Desiccated coconut and coyo, to serve 



 
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. 
  • Make a well then add in all other ingredients, except the eggwhites. Mix well. 
  • In a separate small bowl, beat eggwhites until stiff peaks form. 
  • Fold the eggwhites through the pancake mixture. 
  • Heat a pan greased with coconut oil to medium heat.
  • Place spoonfuls of desired size into the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes each side (or until bubbles form) then flip.
  • Meanwhile, combine the cacao, coconut nectar and hot water and stir until smooth. Add in the tahini and mix well, add more hot water if required. 
  • Serve the pancakes with the sauce, coconut and coyo.

Team BB Easter weekend


THE LONG WEEKEND LOOKS GOOD ON YOU!



For some, the long weekend could be mean too many celebratory bevies teamed up with a traditional food coma, for others, it could mean going on an epic last minute adventure with friends! Whatever your long weekend brings, you need lots of outfit options!

We took some time to ask what #teambb staff are up to this long weekend, and asked them to pair their long weekend activity with their favourite BB outfit. 

Check out bellow our weekend plans! 

We would also love to hear what you are doing??







'Im going camping this weekend! Let's hope that the rain holds off.  But if not I have my floaty and book.  Can't wait to just relax and explore Fraser Island more!’

Shop Sarah's fave






4 days to relax and recharge... what a treat! I am excited to get out of Brisbane and head south to stay at the beach for a few days. I plan to fill my days with beach trips (rain please stay away), hiking, waterfall visits and a day at Byron Bay Blues fest!

Shop Chloe's fave




My husband and I recently adopted an ex-training greyhound, Reggie (pictured with me here), so we’ll be spending the long weekend at home chilling out, which is pretty typical of greyhounds (and my husband, lol) :p



My long weekend doesn't consist of any major plans but I will hopefully have at least one great sleep in. The rest of the time will be spent relaxing, having a few drinks while catching up with friends and eating delicious food. If the weather clears up I may even try to add in a sneaky beach trip!




I am looking forward to enjoying good food, good company & beautiful surroundings… And hopefully a little road trip in the country side so I can get my nature fix! 







This long weekend I have my fingers and toes crossed that the sun will be shining so I can enjoy a relaxing weekend at Straddie with friends :)
