It’s been a long time since I’ve truly been beauty shopping. When I say “beauty haul” I don’t mean going to my local drugstore or Sephora and picking up a mascara or lip balm. When I beauty haul, I HAUL! One of my absolute favourite places to do that is Sephora in the USA.
I haven’t been to the USA since 2014 so I was well overdue for a Sephora.com haul. When my cousin told me he was coming to visit me from New York I jumped at the opportunity to get some goodies. I actually had an outstanding balance on a gift card I got years ago so I had to use that up anyway. It might sound silly but it’s a small way that I can still feel connected to the country and people I have grown to love so very much.
So what did I buy? I’ll reveal it to you but I’ll admit I regret not getting more. I’m currently in the process of a massive office cull so I was trying to be reserved and not get anything as an impulsive purchase. These are items I had on my want list for a really long time. Continue Reading
I have been dying to share this Fillerina review with you for so many reasons. I’m so excited to reveal to you my thoughts and my before and after photos that I could burst. But why is this review so important? Put simply, it could save you making a big mistake!
Hyaluronic Acid fillers for anti-wrinkle and volumizing injections are now trending so much that even girls as young as 16 years old are undergoing regular treatments. I’m a vocal advocate for cosmetic enhancement and surgery but I can’t stress enough that those measures really should only be sought as the last of a series of other options. The problem with injectables is that you have to maintain them because once you stop you end up looking worse than when you started – aging doesn’t stop, it’s just not as visible when you run interference.
In my opinion, the longer you can go without using an injectable the better it is for your aging appearance overall. Treat your canvas well and you won’t need to fork out a few hundred dollars each month. My Fillerina review explains how this topically-applied volumising gel could be what you need to avoid the needle. Continue Reading

We should all be educated enough now to know that a fake tan is the ONLY form of tan that is “healthy”. A natural sun tan is not only aging but also very damaging to the structure and health of our skin. One of the downsides to using a fake tan is that they can become rather unappealing as they fade or we want to remove them. The best way to avoid that hideous patchy tan is to remove it and apply a fresh one before the signs of wear show.
Pinterest and social media love to share DIY recipes for making your own fake tan removal solution but is it safe? Are household cleaners or foods from the grocery store the most effective method? I asked professional makeup artist and co-founder of ANTHEIA Beauty, Brie Stevenson, to give us the hard truths. If you wear fake tan, you need to read this! Continue Reading
