Did you know 2 in 3 of your friends will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their lives? I may count as one of those but who will the other be? With some easy precautions you can reduce the likelihood of it happening to you and your friends.

I’m always telling you about the importance of using sunscreen but today I’m sharing with you why I’m so passionate about sun protection. I was diagnosed with skin cancer at just 22 years old, and I hope that my story of skin cancer can help you prevent having one of your own.  Continue Reading

MoleMap Dice

Did you know that I’ve previously had skin cancer? It’s a story I have spoken about on a few occasions so catch up here if you haven’t read it. It’s one of the key reasons I write about sun protection as much as I do (the other being it helps prevent aging). The thing is, even though I’m very strict about protecting my skin I’m rather lazy when it comes to checking my skin. The truth is … I actually haven’t had a skin check since the cancer was removed. Bad, I know!

Until Friday 31 January 2014, leading Australian sunscreen company Invisible Zinc are giving away 400 full body skin checks with MoleMap by Dermatologists, the world’s most thorough and trusted spot detection program. I was invited along to try the service and having done so I now regret not having my skin checked sooner. 

I’m going to share with you my experience with MoleMap by Dermatologists and why I feel it’s an incredible service, but before I do, go register to win your own at Invisible Zinc. Continue Reading

To continue my week of revealing personal stories I am going to tell you about the time I found out I had skin cancer. Yesterday I told you about the Rhinoplasty I had in 2008, and it is that story that intertwines with today’s story. I have mentioned to you in passing that skin cancer is a subject close to me and that I had a personal experience with it, but unless you went back to my posts from 2008 you wouldn’t know much else about it.

Today I am going to give you the full story about how my decision to have plastic surgery lead to me finding out I had skin cancer.  Continue Reading

Nineteen days ago I started on my new skincare regime using products from Dannè Montague-King. Being almost 3 weeks into the new schedule, I thought it might be nice to update you on my progress so far.

Over this time I have been using my skin prescribed skincare products every morning and night. After the first 7 days I had some additional products thrown into the mix because I had already started to see results with the first lot of products. Here is the NEW routine Continue Reading

It has been a long time between posts and i apologise. I have often thought of stuff i need to post but by the time i get a minute to do it, i am not near a computer. I wish i could blog while driving. Like there is a microphone in my car that is linked to my blog, and i just talk out loud, and the blog will type it up.

I am a genius! If anyone takes that idea, i want Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
