Spa Day: Sensory Deprivation Therapy

Spa Day: Sensory Deprivation Therapy

By Jodie Robins
Sensory Deprivation Therapy - or Floating as it is sometimes known - consists of removing any external stimuli which may cause stress or distraction to aid in relaxation. Similar to meditation, the aim is to quieten the mind, short term benefits of this include leaving the patient feeling refreshed and relaxed. Longer term use has been linked to a decrease in stress related illnesses such as Depression, Anxiety and Insomnia.

Nature's Gifts: Coconut Oil

By Jodie Robins 

Mother Nature’s generosity never ceases to amaze us at R&L, it’s one of the reason’s we’re passionate about our environmental impact from the ground up. In recent years Coconut oil has been having a moment in the mainstream media for its multi-purpose qualities when it comes to beauty, health and even housework.  


Rich in fatty acids that help Cholesterol, brain function and even benefit weight maintenance/loss, Coconut oil should definitely be present in your diet if it isn’t already. It has also been linked with Oral health and many (including supermodel Miranda Kerr) swear by Oil Pulling as a way to banish bad breath amongst other issues. Unlike other natural Oil’s – Coconut is much easier for your Pancreas to process, and therefore helps speed up your metabolism while simultaneously curbing appetite and unhealthy cravings. The MCT’s found in Coconut oil have also been linked with improving memory and the treatment of early Alzheimer’s.


However the benefits aren’t limited internally – Coconut Oil has been used to moisturise skin, nourish hair and even as an anti-bacterial aid for years. Especially recommended for those who suffer from dry skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis, Coconut Oil is a gentle and natural way to look after yourself (and the rest of your loved ones) inside and out.

Destination Known: Getting your travel fix just became a lot easier.


Thanks to Pinterest, I'm often left wondering where my next holiday destination will be. Ever looked at a photo of a secluded beach, or cool cafe only to realise there's literally no information on where that location is in the world. 

Well, I've solved this problem for you! You have the world at your fingertips so go and chase summer! Check out some of our favourite 'destination known' getaways and start booking your next trip! 

You know what goes great with all of these locations? Your favourite Robb & Lulu swimsuit ;)

Peaches & Palms Collection 2017-18

The beauty of colour

At Robb & Lulu, we are campaigners for colour! We commend women who shine and wear their clothes, instead of letting their clothes wear them.

Whether you're head to toe in print or you simply choose to add a touch of colour on a scarf, our Peaches & Palms 2017-18 collection will offer you something you cannot resist.

This season, we have been courageous in our print and colour choices. We have mixed soft pastels hues with warm tones of orange and yellow. As well as wildly blending panther print, tropical florals and watercolour splashes.

Our new swimwear styles are contemporary and carefully designed to compliment the female shape. As we have in the past, we are continuing to offer a 'D-Cup Triangle' for women with a bigger bust.

To encourage confidence, our 'Cherry Girl One Piece' (pictured above) offers gathered detail on the side to hide any lumps and bumps. We have explored new techniques like lycra lace up, gathering, cut-outs, high cuts or fringing (seen on our Kimonos).

Within the collection, we have introduced new organic cotton options for customers who prefer lightweight beach dresses.  However, it is our cupro and fine silks which our colours and prints jsut explode off!

Life isn’t always a holiday is it? It really should be.

Unfortunately most of us don't have the luxury of diving into the sea every morning and leaving with the perfect amount of salt in our hair to give us those luscious waves.

Sometimes, even when we do get the chance to dive into the sea, our hair looks more like a catastrophic beehive than a Victoria’s Secret model. 

I feel I can speak on behalf of all women when I say, there is nothing sexier than effortless beach waves! However, unless you surf everyday like Alana Blanchard, these beach waves don’t come naturally.

For most of us... we have to work for it!

So, if looking like a mermaid is your goal (obviously everyone), then keep on reading because we have a step-by-step guide to help you get the hair you've always wanted.

And the best part’s pretty easy!

Robb & Lulu x

STEP 1 : Mentally prepare yourself. Because after you’ve followed these steps you’re not going to be able to handle how good you look. You will be swatting away boys like flies. Be prepared.

STEP 2 : After you’ve finished some necessary mental preparation, grab yourself some good quality sea salt spray. We love the one from Bumble and Bumble because it has a little touch of oil in it, or Toni and Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray.

Sea salt spray is definitely worth investing in and with both costing less then $30, you won’t have to skip your brunch plans.

STEP 3 : Spray all over your hair.

You don’t want your hair to end up feeling wet, but make sure you’ve covered both the top and bottom layer. It is a good idea to twist little pieces of hair as you go. 

STEP 4 : Time for things to heat up! Get that curling iron out.

We prefer the iron where you use your fingers to wrap your hair around the barrel rather than the clip, like the Babybliss Pro Dreamer Iron. However, both are fine.

You can even use your straighten to do it!! If you’re a nifty hair wizard and all!

STEP 5 : Grab small sections of your hair with your fingers and wrap the hair around the iron. We like to wrap the hair in the direction that is AWAY from the face.

Wait for 6-7 seconds and then let go. 

You don’t need to section your hair off perfectly. Remember...this hairstyle should look natural. Beach hair and ‘perfect’ don't mix.

STEP 6 : After you’ve finished curling your hair, spray it with some hair spray. This should help the curls last all day.

STEP 7 : The secret ingredient which is always overlooked is Dry Shampoo! We use is Batiste, however we also recommend KLORANE and TRESemmé.

Spray the Dry Shampoo on top of your head where your part is and underneath the front sections near your face. Fluff your hair at the top and front to give it some height and life.

STEP 9 : You’re nearly done!  All you have to do, is brush out those curls!

Use fingers ONLY. Put that brush away!

With your fingers brush out the curls to soften them. Apply dry shampoo for volume where desired. You’re allowed to go a little dry shampoo crazy.

STEP 10 : Now the final step.

Look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself a little wink. You’ve done it girl. You just mastered the beach babe look in five minutes. Off to work you go...Oh and if anyone asks, just say you went for a morning surf. Because you know...that’s what real beach babes do.

Robb & Lulu presents S/S 16 'To The Sun'

We are so excited to finally share with you a sneak peek of our new Spring Summer 2016 Campaign.

This season is all about exploding watercolour prints, high neck lines and lots of string ties.

Robb & Lulu designed these radiant splashes of colour to inspire you to feel fearless, empowered and confident within your skin at the beach. Bikinis are meant to be fun, and we want everyone to remember that.

We hope you love our campaign as much as we do!

Miami Swim Week 2017 - It's true.. Aussies do it better!

Robb & Lulu have once again made their mark at Miami Swim Week, presenting their “Pineapples and Palms” collection at the W South beach on July 15th. The designer couple continue to prove that Australian designers are competitive with the worlds best. The creative duo, Robb and Lulu Zagame, love to show the world that Australian swimwear is all about effervescent colours and prints, flawless quality and creating the perfect piece for every woman.

Now on their second show, Robb & Lulu lived up to expectations and paraded a wave of electric colour! Their newest collection “Pineapples & Palms”, boasted a Panther print embellished with striking blue hues, Fruit Tingle with pops of yellow, and Tropicana a perfect mix of exotic blooms.

The fashion pair matched high waisted ‘cheeky pants’ with feminine bikini tops. They played with different bikini styles incorporating high neck halter-tops, basic triangle shapes, bustier bandeau tops and almost everything in between. The runway showcased a vast range of styles, which would impress any woman.

Balancing these prints, we saw soft pops of pink sorbet, berry, mint green, bali blue resembling the perfect ocean and of course, offered in the collection are staple black and white for those less daring.

Moving away from the pool, models strutted down the runway wearing playsuits, kaftans and effortless summer dresses, which could accompany the perfect swimsuit, and be worn for both day and night. The hand illustrated kaftans and playsuits only add to the fun, glamorous and luxurious spirit of the brand. Designer Lulu said this collection was unlike anything she has created before and "gives women a chance to feel powerful and feminine, due to the softer, pastel colour palette used for the 2017 swim season".

Robb & Lulu’s runway show at Miami Swim week has generated incredible media buzz, gaining the brand print coverage in Harpers Bazaar, Retreat Magazine, Composure and Muscle & Fitness. Online, the brand has won features by Daily Mail,, People Magazine,, Daily Telegraph and multiple other online sources.

The Robb & Lulu name is certainly one to keep an eye on this summer.....

Robb & Lulu Lanches at Miami Swim Week

"This collection is about getting back to art, so the standing point of the brand is hand illustrated prints"

Robb & Lulu recently participated in the Miami Swim Week showcasing the 2016 Spring/Summer Collections! Robb & Lulu were one of very few Australian brands to walk the runway and very much lived up to the international expectation that Australian brands make the best swimwear in the world!

As a "wave of colour" sashayed down the runway, Robb & Lulu gained attention from international press to the likes of Vogue Italia, The New York Times, Washington Post,, Latina Magazine, Daily Mail UK, Yahoo & many more. 

Robb & Lulu are looking forward to a very exciting & busy year after launching on the International Runway Platform, Miami Swim Week.
