For many online retailers, the Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales were a weekend long event. Some of them are even kicking on for the remainder of November! If you haven’t taken advantage of any of the great offers yet, or you just simply didn’t realise it was happening, DO NOT PANIC. I have compiled your last-minute ‘Must Shop’ list.

The below list contains all the awesome beauty, cosmetics and makeup offers on now that you can still take advantage of. Make sure you click the links given below and include any noted promotional codes.

Before we begin, open this link to TimeAndDate.com’s Time Zone Converter or The World Clock to that you can make sure you don’t miss a deadline because of the time difference. There is nothing worse than missing an amazing deal by just a few minutes. End dates/times have been included where provided but remember most of these sites are in the USA. Even if a time isn’t include, you can safely assume that it would probably finish at the end of the date provided, so convert that to your timezone.

Are you ready? Let’s go!

Of all my spa-ing I would have to say I was most excited about heading to the original Bliss Spa in SoHo because I have been a long time fan of their beauty products. Bliss have cute and funky names for their products and equally fun names for their treatments. I decided to help myself to one body treatment plus a manicure and pedicure. The menu is Continue Reading

Professional beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries shares her personal blogger burnout story and experience

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series about my personal experience with Blogger Burnout – My Demise + My Recovery + My Future

I started The Plastic Diaries in 2008, became a full-time blogger in 2010 and vanished from the blogging universe in 2015. Where did I go? Why? What happened to me? These are questions that have been asked of me during my 18+ month disappearance. The short answer was blogger burnout – a rarely spoken of condition that is fast becoming a serious concern amongst the influencer industry. Have you ever followed a blogger and notice that one day they have just disappeared? Their blog stopped posting new content, their social media went untouched – it happens often. In my almost 9 years of blogging I have lost count of the bloggers that have come and gone, most of which I have no idea why or where they went.

I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
