Ere Perez Organic Almond Oil Brow Pencil

In Australia we don’t get many of the good things that come out of Mexico. We get Corona, Jarritos (pineapple is my favourite!) and the little fire cracker that is Ere Perez. Ere was born in Mexico and moved to Australia 15 years ago, but it was exactly 10 years ago that Ere developed her self-titled natural cosmetic line. Ere’s family have worked with natural therapies for generations, and her grandfather still practices natural medicine using the healing properties of plants, so it was bound to happen that Ere would end up working in this field as well. However, it was when she arrived in Australia that she was inspired to create a makeup range that used natural ingredients – marrying her family practice with a passion of her own.

Something I love about Ere Perez is that she has a great skill for taking an every day essential beauty product, such as an eyebrow pencil, and finding a way to create it using only premium natural ingredients. Almond Oil is used in a lot of her products, but I wouldn’t have thought it would be useful in a brow pencil. I put it to the test and reveal my results in this review.  Continue Reading

I have a little sneaky peaky for you!! I don’t think I have mentioned this on the blog yet, but I have a strange addiction to swimwear. Even when I hate my body shape (which is often!), I can’t help but buy fabulous swimwear. Being in Australia, I am lucky enough to have access to some of the most amazing swimwear in the world. I swear, Australians are the best swimwear makers. One brand I have loved since they launched is Baku Australia. Today I have some preview snaps of the brand new Summer 2013 collection.  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

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
