Holiday Gift Guide Mecca Cosmetics 2013

It is time to talk Christmas, Holiday and end of year gifts. If you are anything like me you will have not even started making a list yet which means you will need to know where you can run or jump online to buy gifts. The first of my holiday gift guides for 2013 is focusing on three of my favourite Australian beauty retailers – Mecca Cosmetica, Mecca Maxima and Kit Cosmetics. All items shown here are available at one or more of these franchises and online so you can snap them up as soon as you see something you like. And yes, I mean YOU. Let’s face it, I buy more gifts for myself at this time of year than I do for others.

These items are my top picks from the stores but don’t worry if you aren’t in Australia, you will find most of these goodies available in the USA/UK as well and where possible I have included the stockist information for you.  Continue Reading

New Release Beauty Favourites August 2013

*BLINK* Did you see that? I think it was August. It just flew right past my face! It has been a jam packed month for me with the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo taking place, as well as a calendar full of beauty launches and media events. I have played my way through nearly 175 new products that launched in August, and that is excluding the fabulous new products I discovered at the expo. As always it was incredibly difficult to pick out the products that truly captured my attention. I have to say the month of August really did show off just how innovative the beauty market really is.

I hope you find something new to discover in this months best new beauty product launches. 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!
