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
