Beauty Blogger Beauty Storage Essentials

There are only two types of people I will ever consider taking storage advice from – 1. the professional de-clutter experts on those hoarders TV shows, and 2. beauty bloggers. I’m yet to meet a beauty blogger who keeps their belongings and space to a minimum, but they’re some of the most organised and well-maintained individuals you can come across. When I found out I would be moving into a new house my first thought was, “NEW BEAUTY STORAGE!” (you’ll understand why after you see this).

I asked my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which beauty storage product do they rely on most.

Australian Indie Nail Polish Swatches

Glitter nail polish is all the rage these days, with mainstream brands such as OPI and Face of Australia releasing glitter nail polish left, right and center. But did you know that the trend was started way back in 2011, when enterprising women began creating their own polishes by hand, mixing glitter with clear nail polish base? The indie nail polish scene has exploded in popularity recently, and Australia is no exception. We’ve gained a massive reputation overseas for original glitter combinations and a great formula. Go Aussie!

There’s a lot of Australian indie brands out there to wade through, so for the uninitiated, I’ve put together a brief introductory rundown of most of them. For those who are already familiar with the indie scene, you might discover (or rediscover) a brand you didn’t know about before!  Continue Reading

Did you see my Day 1 outfit? Well, if you missed it make sure you jump back and check it out before seeing this one. Once again my second outfit was styled by Natasa Colo from Secret Diary Of A Tall Girl, who had free reign of my limited closet to compile this look. Of course she styled it with heels but by day 2 my feet (which are so used to flats now they don’t know how to wear heels for more than 30 minutes) were aching. So forgive the use of flats. I do realise the outfit would look 10 times better with heels.

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
