Oh my beloved beauties, can you believe another Fashion Week is done and dusted? I cannot. It seemed so far away just a few weeks ago, and then like a bat to the noggin, it was all over.

My experience at this seasons Rosemount Australian Fashion Week was absolutely thrilling ….. and utterly exhausting. You see, this was my first time at a Fashion Week as a ‘reporter’. HA, I am not a reporter by any means, but I was there to report on beauty stuff for Sassybella (I guess that makes me a reporter? hrmmm).

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

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
