If there is anything better than receiving a well deserved gift it would have to be giving one. And no one is more deserving than our mothers or motherly-figures. It is one day a year to say thank-you for putting up with us, for raising us, for doing everything you could to keep us safe and happy (no matter how determined we were to make it difficult for you). Whether it is actually your birth mothers, grandmother, sister, aunty or simply a friend who helped you in life …. Sunday, 12 May is the day to thank them with a gift.

Every gift tells a story so why not make it one that is more than a box of chocolates. The gift ideas you will find in this post are worthy of making your mother feel loved.  Continue Reading

I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
