I’m sure you’ve likely noticed the Australian bombshells popping up all over Instagram lately. Now I can’t stop dreaming about salt air in my hair, bikinis and sandy toes. There is something about the Aussies that I can’t quite put my finger on… Maybe it’s the way they always seem to have eternally bronzed skin and perfect, natural beach hair. Maybe it’s the fact that there are so many drop dead gorgeous babes that come out of Australia, or the fact that they seem so confident, effortlessly stylish and glowing walking down those beaches with their surfboards. Whatever it is, I want to be it too.
Alas, I am not Australian and live nowhere close to the beach. So, to stay inspired – and in anticipation of summer – I have rounded up a few of my favorite Aussie products, Instagrammers and places I dream about visiting. If we can’t all be Australian, at least we can take some inspiration from them!
