Posts in Easy Wax Strips

The one thing that really stood out to me at the Alice McCall Spring-Summer collection recently shown at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week was all the sexy legs. Ok obviously the models are long, lean and thin but I was more surprised at the actual skin texture. Having been backstage at quite a few shows, it was funny to see that some of the models still went down the runway with visible fine white hairs on their legs.
Clearly this is something that is accepted in some peoples world, but in mine it is not. Yes, ok, throw things, yell at me, go ahead. While I totally admit it would be easier to not have to ever worry about hair removal and just go ‘naturale’, I personally think seeing a girl in a kicking dress with silky soft legs is more pleasant on my eyes than seeing the same girl with a kicking dress with furry dark-haired legs.

It would seem Alice McCall felt the same way as I, and made sure all her models had fluff-free legs to show off her adorable mini dresses. Veet came to her rescue by offering up Suprem’Essence Easy Wax Strips and Alice seemed pleased

“It’s always important to have our girls looking perfectly groomed to showcase the collection. Having the girls with beautifully smooth legs courtesy of Veet is essential grooming that gives them that extra air of confidence to take to the runway today. ”

I personally think it was a great match because the Veet Easy Wax Strips are quick, easy and mess free. Plus, the Suprem-Essence range has essential oils in the formula to help ease irritation and keep the legs smooth.

While backstage I pulled aside one of the Veet ladies and asked how you beautiful ladies can get ‘runway legs’. They offered up these tips:

For some people, mother’s day is seen as a huge milestone and another chance to celebrate having their mom around. I personally know many people who have lost their mother at a young age, or came close to it, and they are the ones who truly see some value in Mother’s Day. For those people, picking up a box of chocolates is not an option. They want to do something else, something more personal. For those people, I have an idea for you.

Back when I was younger my mother always made sure there was more than one birthday gift. It would either be a bunch of smaller things or a couple of items I really wanted ….. but either way, there was more than one. If you like receiving gifts, like I do, than this is the most exciting thing in the world. My mother would always wrap things individually which was fun for me, but as I get older I tend to like the ‘goody bag’ approach. Opening one item, be it a box or bag, and finding lots of fun things sends me over the moon. 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!
