Single's Day 2016 Australia

HAPPY SINGLE’S DAY!!! Wait, what is Single’s day, you may ask? According to Google “Singles’ Day or Guanggun Jie (Chinese: 光棍节; pinyin: Guānggùn Jié; Wade–Giles: Kuang-kun chieh; literally: “bare sticks holiday”) is an entertaining festival widespread among young Chinese people, to celebrate the fact that they are proud of being single”. It falls on November 11 each year and in true Australian fashion, we are adopting it in 2016.

Even if I weren’t single I’d be embracing this holiday because it’s a day that invites you to spoil yourself. Treat yourself like the special, loving person you are. Unlike silly old Valentine’s Day which heavily relies on other people validating you, Single’s Day celebrates that you don’t need any one person to make you feel worthy of love and care. Now that’s what I call a healthy holiday!

Last year you may have seen news that Chinese online retailer Alibaba broke records with billions of dollars made in just one day of trade. This year, why buy from unknown potentially dodgy traders when you can shop at your favourite trusted retailers? Join me in some self-care and treat yourself today to some goodies with these awesome offers from the best online beauty, fashion and lifestyle stores. Continue Reading

Fashion Sneakers with Style

Sneakers. They’re a pretty basic, essential footwear item, right? Not for me they weren’t. In the past I’ve been notoriously allergic to exercise and one great way to get out of it was to not own any appropriate footwear. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a pair of runners in my cupboard on and off since my school years but they rarely saw sunlight. That all changed late last year when I underwent a forefoot reconstruction. As a result it has forced me into wearing sneakers regularly. The healing process is a good 12months and in that time it’s recommended to wear runners, sneakers or any shoe that isn’t too tight or form fitting. My poor, sad collection of heels have been locked away this year but luckily sneakers  are so acceptable as fashion footwear these days because I’ve been able to get away with wearing them to some pretty unconventional places.

Best new beauty product launches

Eeeek, is that really the date already? I know August is well and truly over but I can’t pass up sharing my favourites for the month. As for the delay in posting it, well, I blame New York Fashion Week. You’ll soon see why that took up so much of my time.

It was a somewhat slow month for new launches, with only 28 new products gracing my desk, but nearly all of them grabbed my attention and many of them will be fronting some big advertising campaigns over the coming months. I’m sure this won’t be the first nor last you see of them Continue Reading
