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

Aromafloria Spa Foot and Leg Spray

Sore feet isn’t something I talk about often on this blog but the truth is that I have extremely painful feet and it only takes a few minutes of walking before I’m in agony. Despite the pain, I do try to walk as much as possible and when I’m travelling I will opt for a walking route at every opportunity. I picked up the Aromafloria For Feet’s Sake spray after one of these many walking trips in the USA in hopes it would ease my burning, inflamed and tired feet. Did it do the trick? My review answers the question.  Continue Reading

Best New Beauty Products

I don’t want to admit it but … September is over. I know, it’s a shock considering it’s actually almost October but can you believe it? I swear it was only February last month but now we are rolling into the month of Pumpkin Spice lattes and Halloween-themed everything. Now that we’ve said goodbye to September let me show you which products launched that captured my attention.

Nearly 60 new products landed on my desk for their September launch and it was overwhelming just how good the competition between them were. The biggest competition was in the lips category …. so many new, shiny, pretty lippies! Which ones won me over? Let’s find out! Continue Reading

NYFW Beauty Products

I love travelling but for me the worst part is packing (and unpacking, to be honest). I’ve given you a few tips about packing previously but what on earth does a girl pack for New York Fashion Week? It’s a week of post-summer warm weather in a humid city, running around all parts of town, and glitzy fashionistas at swinging soirees. My beauty bag has to carry everything I need to survive the week and even after all these years of attending Australian Fashion Week I still have no idea what to pack until the very last minute.

I try to take miniatures of all my beauty products where possible and I try to avoid sachets or little packets, where possible. I recommend collating deluxe samples when they’re available as gift with purchase offers or as perks from your favourite beauty store (Sephora, I’m looking at you!). These are the beauty products that accompanied me to NYFW 2014.

Dove Clear Touch Deodorant

My biggest concern with deodorant during winter is having one that doesn’t leave any white marks. Taking jumpers on and off means there is a lot of fabric action around the armpits, and worse still is it’s fabrics you just can’t easily get the marks off, such as knits. The solution is to use an antiperspirant that doesn’t leave white marks. Will the Clear Touch roll-on from Dove be my savior?  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!
