I am currently trying to clear out the “crap” from my wardrobe and stock it with really good basics. It is something the fashion experts always tell us to do, but until this year I never really understood it. Now as I get older I realize my wardrobe is chocked full of clothes that were trendy too many years ago. They look dated and just plain wrong. Plus, with my recent weight gain, all the good pieces I had no longer fit.

One of the items right at the top of my list is a silk (or silky) white shirt. One that I can wear for business and for casual. Tucked in or loose. Comfortable but not bulky. Oh and definitely not sheer (I am too old for that). But it is proving to be impossible.

Getting back to showing you what I picked up on my last trip to the US of A, no shopping business trip would be complete without a stop at ZARA.

We recently welcomed ZARA to Australia and I was blessed as my hometown of Sydney were up first to get one, but despite many attempts to shop in the Australian store, I had zero luck finding anything I really liked. My experience with ZARA in the USA has always been a good one, always coming out with multiple overstuffed bags.

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!
