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!

Cargo Cosmetics Illustration

It’s been a long time since we saw Cargo Cosmetics sold on Australian shores. The travellers’ cosmetic brand (well, that’s what I like to call it) was sold in David Jones stores approximately 10 years ago but departed silently one dark day. Now we have word that Cargo is set to return to Australia in all its glory thanks to Kit Cosmetics.

From February 2, 2014 Cargo Cosmetics will once again go on sale in Australia, at Kit Cosmetics stores and online. To celebrate their return I thought I would share a bit about the brand for those of you who missed it the first time around. Plus, I’m sharing which products I think are a must-try from their range.  Continue Reading

La Senza Underwear Group

Do you have favourite underwear? A style and fabric that makes you feel comfortable but sexy at the same time? For almost my entire life I had no such thing. I was constantly at war with panties. They were too tight, too loose, dug in, sagged, felt suffocating and uncomfortable – I could go on forever about how much of a pain it was to wear underwear. That was up until a few years ago when La Senza arrived in Australia. I discovered their underwear and my life changed forever. I bought a handful and they had lasted me all this time but a couple of months ago I realised I was in desperate need of an update so I went to find where the nearest store was located. To my shock, La Senza had just closed their operations in Australia. I was gutted.

I am not the type of person to allow a little thing like withdrawing from a country to get in the way of the underwear that I loved. I logged on to their main website (based in Canada) and began searching for a way to get it to Australia. Luckily they ship internationally … they must understand how important a girls underwear is. The shipping wasn’t going to be cheap so with this in mind I thought I better make use of this situation and really stock up. La Senza were offering a special of 7 cotton panties for just CAD $28. Bargain. I’ll take 2 lots. This is what I ordered: 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
