Urban Remedy Juice Cleanse Official Lineup

I am one of those people who always thought “detox” and “cleanse” programs were a bunch of hot air. I knew that they must have a purpose for a select few people but my general belief is you should just eat well all the time and you won’t need to clear out your system. Then again, I am not a smoker or a drinker (unless it is a brightly coloured drink with a piece of fruit on the side and a little umbrella) so perhaps I am not exactly the target market anyway? When I recently found an Urban Remedy gift voucher in a gift bag I got at an event I thought to myself, “why not?”. So here it is, a review of a juice detox by a skeptic. Continue Reading

Today I want to introduce you to Courtney from the beauty blog Phyrra. If you haven’t already come across her blog than I think this guest post will give you just a tiny glimpse of how amazing she is. I call her the Makeup Tutorial Queen because her skill with multi-coloured eye looks never fails to leave me in awe. Courtney is an avid supporter of cruelty-free and indie brands, and if you want to know anything about the Indie sector she will have the answers for you. I hope you enjoy this post as she introduces us all (myself included!) to two Australian indie beauty brands.  Continue Reading

I have done a fair few posts about Laser and IPL hair removal in the past, but it has been quite sometime since I had actually had a treatment so I thought I should take another go at it and see how the treatment has changed. I had heard about The Laser Lounge quite a bit recently and knew them from being one of the fine clinics that offer DMK (yes, my beloved skincare). I figured if they are good enough to use DMK, than they are good enough to wield a laser over my armpits.

Armpits are the one area I like to get treated most because I find they are so sensitive to all other forms of hair removal. My goal is to get that area as hair free as possible, so naturally I picked that area for this review. I decided on visiting The Laser Lounge in Sydney CBD, but they have a few locations which you will find listed at the end of this post. Now for the good part … Continue Reading

Last week saw the official launch of ACPs 30 Days Of Fashion & Beauty for 2011. If you were reading this blog a year ago you may remember that I talked about some of the 2010 events. I also attended some but for some reason I lacked posting about them. I don’t know what I was thinking …. they were awesome!

I couldn’t let the weeks roll past without giving you a little snapshot of the events I think you HAVE to get involved in. But first ….

It is always nice to see a beauty brand doing something good for mankind. For an industry that is perceived as shallow and self-serving, it sure does do a lot for the earth and the creatures that live on it.

I can’t think of two better examples than Aveda and The Body Shop. Both brands have selected April to be the month that helps the globe, on top of their already well established generosity. 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!
