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

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. 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
