Appelles Apothecary Delivery Box

Appelles is a brand I had not heard about previously but when a delivery from them recently landed on my desk I noticed a sudden shift in my office environment. A delightful fragrance filled the air, the mood was lifted and I had a sudden urge to sink into a deep bath tub for a warm nap. This was all before I even opened the box. I wanted to share with you some of the gorgeous goods I will trying out AND there is a special offer exclusive to The Plastic Diaries readers.

Who Are Appelles?

Before I show you the products, you have to know a few things about Appelles Apothecary that I think are important. All Appelles products are Australian designed and owned, this is important for our little country because very few things are made here using our wonderful natural resources. It wasn’t something I cared much about previously but the more I learn about how cosmetics are made the more interested I am in using locally sourced products.

Further more, the products are made using biodegradable ingredients; they use native Australian oil blends; not tested on animals; are paraben free; plastic packaging is 100% biodegradable using Ecopure products; and finally, all packaging is fully recyclable, environmentally friendly and printed using biodegradable soy-based inks. What all that comes down to is these products are just as good for the environment as they are for you. I am not a hippy but I do lean to the green side and all this makes me feel really good about using these products. Continue Reading

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
