Best vegan beauty products

I’m honoured to have a guest post from one of my favourite vegan bloggers, Chelsey from Like A Vegan. Proving that veganism isn’t all about eating lettuce and wearing Crocs, Chelsey shows us how wonderfully colourful life can be as a vegan. And she is hilarious. No lectures, scare tactics or horrifying images of mutilated animals. Chelsey brings humor, fun and energy to life without cruelty – and now she is doing it here with this awesome post about her favourite vegan beauty products.  Continue Reading

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

I admit I am terrible with the animal print trend. I always see people totally rocking a leopard print scarf or giraffe printed dress.

Today we have a fabulous Giraffe-inspired animal print manicure thanks to fabulous Kristie, the blogger behind Blushing Basics.

Kristie is so kind to share this tutorial with us and I think you will love it, so let me hand over to her to fill you in.  Continue Reading

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
