FOA HD Brow Kit

Brows are the one part of my face that never go without a bit of makeup.

It gave me the perfect opportunity to try out Face of Australia’s High Definition Eyebrow Kit.

I have reviewed this universal compact for you and included my own before & after shots. Can this beauty kit solve my brow hair woes?  Continue Reading

Kendall Jenner Wet Hair Editorial Shoot

Say what you will about the Kardashian’s, there is no denying that Kendall Jenner is one stunning young lady. Putting aside whether the reality TV star should be famous, I believe even if she hadn’t been part of the Kadashian craze she still would be where she is today – a fashion star on the rise.

Kendall is lucky to have such fashionable influences in her life, after all she is surrounded by a bevy of stylish women, but it is her own style that is really coming to the surface now. One of the easiest ways to capture Kendall’s style for ourselves is her hair. The girl sure can rock a style. Here are some ways you can recreate Kendall’s hair looks.

FOTD Super Quick Makeup Tutorial

I’m terrible at getting ready in the morning. If I know I don’t have to see anyone until the afternoon I will stay barefaced and wear track pants until the last minute. That means I usually have only 10 minutes or less to throw on my makeup for a meeting or event.

This look was put together with not a minute to spare as I ran to a meeting. My goal was for a sheer but luminous complexion that wasn’t too heavy, an open-eye because I had been running on 5hrs sleep all week and some colour to liven me up with a sweet cheek and punchy lip. Recreate my look with these instructions and products.  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!
