Single's Day 2016 Australia

HAPPY SINGLE’S DAY!!! Wait, what is Single’s day, you may ask? According to Google “Singles’ Day or Guanggun Jie (Chinese: 光棍节; pinyin: Guānggùn Jié; Wade–Giles: Kuang-kun chieh; literally: “bare sticks holiday”) is an entertaining festival widespread among young Chinese people, to celebrate the fact that they are proud of being single”. It falls on November 11 each year and in true Australian fashion, we are adopting it in 2016.

Even if I weren’t single I’d be embracing this holiday because it’s a day that invites you to spoil yourself. Treat yourself like the special, loving person you are. Unlike silly old Valentine’s Day which heavily relies on other people validating you, Single’s Day celebrates that you don’t need any one person to make you feel worthy of love and care. Now that’s what I call a healthy holiday!

Last year you may have seen news that Chinese online retailer Alibaba broke records with billions of dollars made in just one day of trade.

Join me in some self-care and treat yourself today to some goodies with these awesome offers from the best online beauty, fashion and lifestyle stores. Continue Reading

The news isn’t clean cut and is actually rather confusing so I’m going to tell you what you may be missing from between the lines, and why you should run back to your favourite brands JUST YET.

First, let’s recap the announcement.  Continue Reading
