Sephora Australia Price Lists

Sephora Australia open their first store in Sydney this Friday, that’s just 2 days away! I’ve shared with you lots of exclusive snoops since the news broke they were opening a store here, and most recently all the Sephora Sydney opening day information but the one thing I haven’t shared is the price lists. Today, I’m breaking the silence.

We were told Sephora would be keeping prices comparable to their US pricing but no one has actually shared the pricing in detail. Price lists for the brands Sephora Australia will be carrying were distributed to media quite sometime ago but I’m publishing the pricing of the most in-demand products and brands now so you can go in on opening weekend and know exactly what you want to get. My pricing list shows the Sephora Australia recommended retail price in AUD. Continue Reading

Beauty shopping haul from New York via The Plastic Diaries

Shopping in the USA will never get old for me. I will never bore of it, even if every single brand they sell there comes to Australia. I can’t put it in to words exactly what I like about shopping there but I can show you the fruits of my labour. It was only in May I got to share with you my first 2014 beauty haul from the USA but shock horror I got even more during my New York trip for Fashion Week.

I recorded this video while in New York so my shopping adventures hadn’t been completed just yet, but I have got my full haul pictured and listed after the video. Will you spot something you already love or want to try?  Continue Reading

USA Beauty Shopping

When I’m at home in my own city there is nothing I loathe more than spending a full day at the shops looking for beauty products. I LOVE shopping for beauty products but I find it most enjoyable when I’m in a foreign city. I adore shopping in the USA because of the huge selection available, the lower price points and the sales assistants who actually help you (yes, that’s rare in Australia).

I’ve just returned from a business trip in the USA and many of you have been nagging me to share my haul. I’m going to start with my beauty haul because it’s the largest (of course!). In comparison to past trips I would say this haul is small but I stuck to things I actually had on my lust list and/or items I absolutely love. I tried to keep the splurging to a minimum …. but I’m only human.  Continue Reading

BEST NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS January 2014

It’s been a slow start in the world of beauty launches for 2014. In fact it is so slow I just thought I would have a lazy start to the year and take a month to share my favourites. Most of the industry really kicks up the new launches from February, but some brands wanted to sneak in early and make an impact in January.

We saw 40+ fabulous new products launch in January across all beauty categories. Read on to find out which goodies in hair, nails, makeup and more took our fancy.  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!
