It is finally here. December. There is Christmas, Chanukah, end of work functions, New Years Eve and the start of Winter (for the north) and Summer (for the south). It is one of the months we spend the most money all year so it is important to be really savvy if you are on a budget. That is why this months new release favourites are most important. The items I will show you are worth the pennies, in my opinion.

This month we also saw the launch of gift packs for the gift giving season. Rather than filing up this post with all the amazing goodies I have created some gift guides to help you purchase those gifts for your loved ones. I have shared my top beauty items from Sephora and Mecca, and there are fashion & beauty gifts for Australians, Girly Girls and Kris Kringle.

Now to my favourite new products for December. This month I don’t have a lot of items, because as I said this is a time for picking things that are really worth the money. Enjoy! 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
