New Places To Shop Online

I love online shopping. The only time I prefer to shop in a brick & mortar store is when I am away on a holiday because that is my version of sightseeing. When you shop online as much as I do you definitely have the go-to trusty stores, but I am also on the lookout for new stores. With online shopping being one of the fastest growing commodities in the retail sector it is no surprise that new stores are opening their virtual doors on every day.

I have found some great stores the last few months, many of which ship internationally so it doesn’t matter if you are located in Australia, USA, UK or any where in between. With my top picks for beauty, fashion and homewares you will undoubtedly find what you need (and probably lots of stuff you just want).

Revolve Clothing

The list of designers you will find on this store is mind-blowing. You will find everything from budget-friendly MINKPINK to powerhouse designer Nanette Lepore. Even the dozen or so Australian brands they stock are cheaper than what we pay in Australia! There are bags, shoes, accessories, beauty and more clothes than I could possibly dream, and there is just as much of a selection for the boys too. Based out of the USA, they offer $10 flat rate international shipping on all orders via USPS Air Mail, or spend over $100 and get free shipping.

They also have a pretty funky blog for the fashion inclined.

Favourite Brands: Oh so many to list. Stila, Deborah Lippmann and Butter London for beauty. Alexis Bittar, Bless’ed Are The Meek, Havianas, Suboo, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Minkoff, Diane Von Furstenberg and Alice + Olivia.

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
