Prints Beauty and Fashion
Bright colours are fun, but they are even more fun when put into a whacky pattern. This is my latest obsession. Prints bring a bit of fun to something that can otherwise be dull. Hair ties, summer dresses, nails …. all these things are more fun with a print.

These are the printed beauty, fashion and lifestyle items that I’m lusting after right now. Continue Reading

USA Beauty Shopping

When I’m at home in my own city there is nothing I loathe more than spending a full day at the shops looking for beauty products. I LOVE shopping for beauty products but I find it most enjoyable when I’m in a foreign city. I adore shopping in the USA because of the huge selection available, the lower price points and the sales assistants who actually help you (yes, that’s rare in Australia).

I’ve just returned from a business trip in the USA and many of you have been nagging me to share my haul. I’m going to start with my beauty haul because it’s the largest (of course!). In comparison to past trips I would say this haul is small but I stuck to things I actually had on my lust list and/or items I absolutely love. I tried to keep the splurging to a minimum …. but I’m only human.  Continue Reading

ulta3 Speckled Nail Polish Collection

Easter is fast approaching and before the week is out you will probably have caved-in to a Hot Cross Bun or chocolate egg …. or five. Dust yourself off because enjoying the holiday season isn’t about what you eat. There are lots of ways to join in the fun without going up a dress size. My easter special this year is all about guilt-free, fat-free easter treats. My delicious morsels are all beauty products, and they don’t discriminate against lactose-intolerance or veganism or any other dietary/lifestyle roadblocks.

NOTE: I do realise Easter isn’t meant to be a cheerful holiday but when you see these beauties you will see why happiness is on the cards.  Continue Reading

Nail Polish Meme

I know I don’t need any more nail polish. No one NEEDS nail polish, but we want it. Especially me. And Sephora are back to their old tricks of tempting me to hand over my credit card for their snazzy new line of nail polish and nail care products, Formula X for Sephora.

The new line was launched just this month and while we did hear rumblings that the mega retailer would be looking to launch new nail offerings we still found this to be a well kept secret right up until it went on sale. The collection is massive, currently including over 200 items, and features everything from classic cremes to 3D appliqués.

The Collection

The collection is broken down into multiple sub-categories and each contain a variety of hues:  Continue Reading

GIRLS HBO DVD Cover

Do you watch (or have you watched) the HBO hit series, GIRLS? I admit that I haven’t yet but I swear it is on my list to-do …. along with Lost, Breaking Bad and Dexter. Am I a little behind? Moving on, GIRLS is the focus of this post because that show seems to be taking over more than just TV screens, they are targeting our nails well. Two particular collections have grabbed my interest this week and I am tossing up whether to order them or not. You will have to help me decide.  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!
