This year I’ve collated the best gifts, for any budget, to give your mother this Mother’s Day, or to pass on to your own loved ones as a hint of gifts to give you!

Don’t leave your gift purchases until the last minute. This year we are giving you enough time to buy your Mother’s Day gifts online so you can take advantage of extra sales, offers and gifts with purchase. Continue Reading

Sephora Australia store photos

Sephora’s Australian store opening in Sydney was the biggest thing to happen to Australian beauty fans this year. It was a highly anticipated and despite a lot of negativity from some of the online community overall the launch was a massive success. The majority of people are happy or accepting of the pricing but with a lot of the final brand details withheld until opening day, I haven’t been able to give you a run-down of the brands and products that impressed me most. That changes today!

Environmentally friendly candles - Do they exist

Eco-friendly and natural products are growing more and more popular as we all become aware of the devastating impacts humans have on our world. One of the little-known but constant debates amongst ethical consumers is whether burning candles is safe for the environment. Soy wax candles are particularly popular but are they any better for the environment, or are we just buying into a fad?

A scented candle can have such an incredible effect on our mood so it’s little wonder that they are so popular today. I adore a fresh, zesty scent in my bathroom to make it feel clean, and a woody, oriental fragrance in my living room for cosying up on the couch.

I answer all these questions with some help from Vanessa Megan and take a look at what your scented candle options are if you want to keep burning them.  Continue Reading

Alexami Hydrabotanique Collection

When you hear about organic, paraben-free, talc-free, eco-friendly, vegan skincare it’s automatically assumed that the products won’t do anything. Technology and science have come so far in the past few years that such thoughts are old-dated and there are many skincare ranges that are proving to be just as effective as the chemical laden ones. Hydrabotanique is one range that creators, Alexami, hope to prove how effective they can really be.

The 6 skincare products use active botanicals and minerals to do the job in place of where other companies use chemicals. The range is said to work as an ideal accompaniment to Alexami’s cosmetics but we put this range to the test to see if it would hold its own in the skincare stakes. Did it do wonders or was it a flop? The review reveals all.  Continue Reading
