September. The start of Spring (in Australia) and a very welcome change of temperature, while the northern hemisphere move into fall. It is the time where we switch our wardrobes, makeup, skincare and almost every part of our lives. In beauty, we have seen a big change this time around. September is a big month.

So far I have welcomed 98 new products going on sale this month. It is the most new launches I have seen since starting this series in March but I also believe the most in my entire 2 and a bit years of writing The Plastic Diaries. With this huge number of new beauty products you can bet that creating this months list was awfully difficult. Continue Reading

Each month the beauty industry globally releases hundreds of new products, shades and collections. It can be really hard to stay on top of all the new pretty products that come out, even if you are the savviest shopper around. Starting now, I am going to attempt to make the process a little easier for everyone by posting my favourite new releases each month.

Think of this new series as a monthly hit list of items to keep an eye out for. As we are in the middle of March, it means a change of season and we see all the awesome new collections hit shelves. The first month of a new season is always the most exciting so without further delay, let’s get into the hottest products to hit shelves this March.

I wonder what this is??

Reviews and Swatches

Like every beauty brand that comes to our shores, I instantly wanted to try it. The draw card for me is that they offer on-trend items at around half the price. You know I love me a bargain. Today I am going to show you 5 of the key products I think you will love.

Blush Me! Blush Box

First thing I thought of when I saw these were Benefit Cosmetics boxed powders (I already told you about my love for Sugarbomb). The Blush Boxes from MeMeMe come in four variances, Bronze, Coral, Pink and Rouge. Just like the Benefit versions these also come with a little brush inside, but these are different in that 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!
