Posts in Erika Wood

The lovely Miss Erika is back today to share her mind-boggling discovery. You may remember her from such smash hits as the evo Mane Prescription review. In my opinion, the below story is CLASSIC Erika. It will also give you some delightful insight into what I deal with amongst my own friends (namely, never listening to me!).

Enjoy!

The Review

This product changed my life. Ok, ok I’ll admit it didn’t really change my life, but it certainly changed the outcome of my DIY nail painting attempts, the frequency in which I now paint my nails and the growing collection of nail colours I’m accumulating!

BRQDTC (Before Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat) like many who don’t use a top coat, I used to be a frustrated nail painter. After painstakingly painting two coats of colour I used to sit in front of a fan, use a hair dryer, put my hands in the freezer, immerse my hands in cold water, anything I could think of to dry my nails and after 30 minutes or more of these drying techniques and trying to pick things up with my toes, I would finally think my nails were dry… and then I would either: Continue Reading

Today we have a guest post from a lovely friend of mine by the name of Erika Wood. She is funny, quirky and I think you may like her. I hope this will be the first of many pieces from her, but to start she is going to tell us about a new discovery in her beauty life.

The Review

I’ve just returned home after nearly five months basking in what seemed like an eternal European summer. A summer spent sunning myself sailing the coast of Croatia, bathing in the most beautiful and translucent pale blue ocean in Turkey, exploring the magical grottos surrounding the Isle of Capri, lounging around the beach clubs in the Greek Islands, posing on the private beaches along the French Riviera, catching some waves in San Sebastian and hmmm where was I going with this… Oh of course! So after returning from my gallivanting, I realised that not everything I brought home with me was basking in a summer glow.

Not exactly Erika, bit it is a lovely picture!

Fortunately we’re not talking about my skin, which is just as well considering I slathered myself with 50+ SPF sunscreen every day, not to mention the large sun hats and beach umbrellas I accessorised with whilst catching some vitamin D. My hair on the other hand 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!
