ulta3 Speckled Nail Polish Collection

Easter is fast approaching and before the week is out you will probably have caved-in to a Hot Cross Bun or chocolate egg …. or five. Dust yourself off because enjoying the holiday season isn’t about what you eat. There are lots of ways to join in the fun without going up a dress size. My easter special this year is all about guilt-free, fat-free easter treats. My delicious morsels are all beauty products, and they don’t discriminate against lactose-intolerance or veganism or any other dietary/lifestyle roadblocks.

NOTE: I do realise Easter isn’t meant to be a cheerful holiday but when you see these beauties you will see why happiness is on the cards.  Continue Reading

Illamasqua I'mPerfection Speckled Nail Polish

Illamasqua have just launched their brand new collection, I’mPerfection. The premise of this new collection is quite unique and of course that is typical Illamasqua. The “I’m Perfection” labelling can also be read as “ImPrerfection”, as the entire collection is about enhancing your flaws. Illamasqua believe that our flaws are what make us beautiful because without them we would all look the same. I don’t know if I completely agree with this line of thinking but when it comes to makeup I don’t really need a backstory to inspire me, and this collection is no different. When I look for interesting makeup I want colour and texture in variety … and Illamasqua do not disappoint with I’mPerfection.

Today I am showing you the limited edition nail polish from the I’mPerfection collection, all of which contain matte black particles in a variety of sizes to leave the nails with a “speckled” finish. The inspiration comes from the irregular markings found on bird eggs, most commonly duck eggs. I decided to show off the 5-piece collection with a wearable nail art design. Let’s see it!  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!
