Lash Closet Eyelashes Haul
Beauty subscription services are a trend that has now been going for well over 12 months. It shows no sign of slowing down but what’s great to see happening currently is the rise of unique offerings, such as Lash Closet. This may not be a beauty service everybody would find useful or interesting but if you use false lashes you’ll know how quickly you can go through them.

Let me introduce you to the incredibly smart concept from Lash Closet, an online store dedicated to eyelashes. Continue Reading

GoodnessMe Health Food Box

I’m a little late to join the subscription box bandwagon but I’ve been enjoying exploring what is out there since the beauty box boom happened in Australia almost 2 years ago. Health and wellbeing boxes are definitely on the rise and I was excited to hear about the GoodnessMe, an Australian food sampling box focused on wholesome and natural products. The hook for me was that every product in the box is always GMO-free and that’s something I’m finding to be more and more important.

So let’s see what I got in the August GoodnessMe box and my review of the included products.  Continue Reading

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Review

I recently published a review of my beloved Vegan Cuts snack box where I highlighted that when people find out I’m vegan they question me about food. Well, on the flip side to that there is the questions I get from other vegans when they find out I’m a beauty writer. For new vegans they often find it hard to learn about which beauty products there are to suit their new lifestyle but it doesn’t have to be. There are numerous resources to discover vegan and cruelty-free beauty but Vegan Cuts make this discovery process a lot more enjoyable with their Beauty Box subscription service.

This is the first Vegan Cuts beauty box I’ve ever received but I’ve been a long time subscriber of the snack box. Would this one win me my heart too? I’ve reviewed this one for you and even put it into a video! Continue Reading

Vegan Cuts May Snack Box

When people find out that I’m vegan there is one question I am asked more than any other question …. “what DO you eat?”. I never know how to answer it because there is just so much I do eat. The list of what I don’t eat is much shorter, and most people don’t even realise that many things they already eat are vegan. With this constant question in mind and the continued interest from all of you to learn more about a truly cruelty-free lifestyle I thought I would do a few posts touching on vegan food.

People generally assume that eating vegan food instantly means it’s health food. That isn’t always the case because there are lots of unhealthy ingredients that don’t come from animals, i.e. sugar. However, in general vegan ‘junk food’ is naturally healthier than the animal-ingredient alternatives because it doesn’t have the trans fat and all the nasty chemicals/hormones that farmers feed the animals. So my point is, vegan food isn’t always a ‘health food’ but it is always more healthy than non-vegan food.

Why the long spiel, you ask? Today’s post is to introduce you to a service I’ve been using since starting my cruelty-free lifestyle. Vegan Cuts is a subscription box service that offers two monthly boxes, a Snack box and a Beauty box. The snack box has been invaluable with helping me discover just how delicious veganism is, and how many amazing products the world has to offer. This review is of the most recent snack box for May.  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!
