I wouldn’t say I have had a lot of experience with surgery in my life, and I am very thankful for that, but I have had more than my share of skin trauma. By the time I had my Rhinoplasty I had almost perfected how to treat my skin from bruises, cuts, abrasions, bites and whatever other damage I would inflict with my proneness to accidents. As I am going in for surgery tomorrow to have my gallbladder removed, I thought I should share my top beauty tips for preparing your skin for surgery. There really are things you can do that will cut down your healing time.  Continue Reading

If you have ever watched the antics of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian on Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s or any of their spin-off TV Shows, you will have probably seen the impressive storage system the girls have for their cosmetics. Their clear, plastic organiser systems have been one of my lust have’s since spotting them on the show years ago. This weekend I was over the moon to receive one when I attend an Australian Beauty Bloggers conference, Beauty Bloggers Utopia.

If you read this post about the state of my beauty cupboard, you would know just how much help I need in organising my cosmetic storage. You can expect an update on that project soon, but for now I want to share my review of my new storage item.  Continue Reading

Rosie Fernandez, Managing Director, La Prairie Australia

It has been quite some time since the last Brand Profile post and it has been something I have wanted to revisit ever since. I will be kicking these off again and to start I am sharing with you one of my all time favourite skincare brands, La Prairie. This brand not only makes amazing skincare that really works, but they do it in a way that makes you feel a million dollars. It is luxury at its finest and a brand that everyone should experience at least once.

If you have ever asked me for skincare advice, chances are my answer has included La Prairie in some form. I am yet to have a bad experience with any of their products or services, and it is a brand I am genuinely giddy to see in-store or at a spa.

To give you some extra insight into the La Prairie brand, I have spoken with La Prairie Australia’s Managing Director, Rosi Fernandez. Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
