Australia Post Shoes Parcels

If you don’t know by now, I’m a huge advocate for online shopping. It’s convenient, crowd-free, ‘prams & strollers running over your feet’ free, you can shop at any time, in any place and wearing whatever you want. I’ve been online shopping since I got my very own credit card but back then no Australian website dare had their own online store. Today things are a completely different picture.

Online shopping finally reached mainstream status early in 2013 with Australians who don’t buy something online now being classed as the minority, according to leading research company Roy Morgan. As a personal witness to just how much things have changed over the last 10 or so years I want to share interesting tidbits about online shopping in Australia.

Which sites do Australians shop from the most? What are Australians buying online? Which Australian online stores do I love? Read on to find all this out plus more.  Continue Reading

Samantha Wills Belle DeJour Ring Aqua Angle

Samantha Wills is an Australian jewellery designer I have admired for as long as I can remember. I first discovered her pieces when I was working in magazines and they would send their jewellery in for use in the fashion spreads. I would see lots of the stylish editors donning her jewels and vowed that one day I would be one of them. It may have taken 10 years and an amazing sale but finally, I own a Samantha Wills ring.

If you aren’t familiar with Samantha Wills, you are probably thinking the jewellery must be thousands of dollars from the fact it took me 10 years to buy a piece but it is actually really affordable. My new ring, the Belle Dejour, retails for just $64 but I have never been able to justify investing in jewellery before. In fact, if you have been a longtime reader you may remember when I revealed that I only started understanding the importance of jewellery. However, by the time I had come to realise that jewellery was a necessity in creating a stylish outfit I owned my own business and that meant limited shopping funds for me.

I stalk a few bargain shopping sites and one of them is Ozsale. I was a member of their site since they opened but I actually hadn’t purchased anything until this year. I recently purchased a great wrap dress from Events and i thought I hit the jackpot, but when I saw they were having a Samantha Wills sale I teared up with excitement.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. 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

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

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
