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). A couple of weeks ago I announced that news and stupidly said that I would be posting a daily rundown of my RAFW action here on The Plastic Diaries. Clearly I am new to this whole Fashion Week thingy because I failed to stay awake long enough at the end of each day to even turn on my computer. For making that stupid promise, I am very very sorry. I shall never let you down like that again, and to make up for it, I am going to give you a massive RAFW packed post right now ….. Continue Reading

You know I am all for doing something if it is for a great cause. Especially if it is easy and for a cause relating to cancer or animals, but really I am not picky, I am a good person. Then there is the fact that I think I am awesome at running in high heels. Honestly, I think I run better in high heels then I do in runners. Now that I think about it, if my school had let me do the yearly athletics carnival in stilettos maybe I would have done better than last place (… every single time!). So we have established that I think I am a good person who is good at running in heels….. Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
