Peep Toe Shoes Box

I have been desperate for new shoes for the past 18months. It is hard to believe it has been that long since I really invested in a pair of shoes. Actually, I think I have only bought 1 pair in that entire time. You see, I have been trying to cull my wardrobe to only include things I truly need and actually wear, but shoes were my big problem. I have always been a collector of shoes and stopping the urge to buy a hundred pairs of shoes every month was the hardest thing I ever had to do. But after all that cleaning out I was left with a dozen or so shoes that look great but only 3 or so pairs were actually functional for day-to-day outings. I needed to buy a new pair of shoes and it wasn’t going to be easy.

Luck came my way at the end of last year when I won a $200 PeepToe gift card in a competition on Danimezza, which happens to be one of my favourite fashion blogs (even though Danielle mostly shows off plus-size fashion I still love her photography, writing and sense of style). I have always been a big fan of PeepToe jewellery but I had actually never bought a pair of shoes from them. They have such fabulous, sexy, over-the-top heels and but because my ankles are in such bad condition I am unable to wear many of their towering stilettos. When I found out I had won a PeepToe gift card (and had calmed down from the excitement) I made the resolution to not spend it until I have found the perfect pair of shoes for me.

Cut to me, last week walking through Westfield Sydney after a lunch date and I saw PeepToe were having a 20% off sale. I thought now would be a great time to check out the store and see if there were any heels for my crazy little feet. I was in luck and now I am ready to reveal my purchases.  Continue Reading

When it comes to bling, I can go a bit overboard. In my beauty obsessed world, the second best thing to pink packaging is something with crystals or jewels on it, especially beauty tools. So it is no surprise that blinged tweezers are something that get my heart racing. Today I am going to show you a LUXE and LESS version and share my review on both.  Continue Reading

I have never owned any jewellery from Swarovski before but I have long admired their work. My grandmother used to have a small collection of the Swarovski crystal animals and I was lucky enough to be able to touch them when I was little. My favourite was this cute little penguin that I have still seen in their stores today. The jewellery was something I had always dreamed of and even though they have really affordable pieces, I could never bring myself to go to a store and buy a piece of jewellery. I honestly thought the pieces were just too special for me to wear.

I was recently given this beautiful Swarovski Golden Shadow Crystal Tennis Bracelet as a gift. It is so beautiful and it is definitely the most ‘grown-up’ piece of jewellery I own.  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!
