Sephora Best Buys

If there were just one minority of people who knew how to expertly shop for beauty products it would have to be beauty bloggers. I’m heading to the USA soon and it’s been a long time since I stepped foot in my beloved beauty store, Sephora. By now I thought Sephora would be shipping to Australia but as we know, that isn’t happening. To assist me in preparing a shopping list I called on my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which one product they deemed an essential Sephora purchase.  Continue Reading

Best of Beauty 2012 - 12 Survival Beauty Products

I probably couldn’t count the amount of beauty products I acquired in 2012. To be honest, I tried but I lost count after 1650 (wow, I feel sick but also very pleased with myself).

Today I am going to share with you the 12 products I couldn’t get enough of in 2012. Make sure you tell me yours in the comments!  Continue Reading

Last week I had a dinner with one of my gorgeous friends. Being the terrible anti-social type that I am I rarely get to see her so when we do catch up there is always a flood of conversation. This particular time we got onto one of my most loved topics, make-up but more specifically, how I go about applying it. Continue Reading

Beauty Admission #542: I have never used an eyeshadow primer when applying my own make up …… until New Years Eve. I had used a face primer for years so I really couldn’t understand why I would need and Eye Shadow primer as well. Wouldn’t that be doubling up? It seems the answer is no. Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
