Posts in Missoni

There is no denying that buying beauty products from international retailers is extremely lucrative to many people, especially those located in Australia and New Zealand. While I can carry on about how I like shopping at Mecca Cosmetica and Adore Beauty (and oh boy do I love those stores, both of which also ship internationally!!) the fact of the matter is that not everything I want can be bought in Australia, or for a price I can afford. This is where buying from international stores comes in, and in particular, the big USA department stores.

Why Am I Writing This Post?

I want to be up front and say that supporting your local economy is very important. I know that, you know that. I am not encouraging you to desert your local industry and only buy internationally. This post is merely a guide to help those who perhaps already buy from overseas retailers and are frustrated at not knowing which brands can and cannot be purchased.

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!
