Australian Cash

Each year I run this annual survey so that I can make sure The Plastic Diaries and I are bringing you everything you want, like and need. Some of you may have participated in previous years but don’t skip this year because we have new questions and of course, a great new prize. I want you to tell me what you like and if you do that you may win a little cash injection just in time for Christmas and holiday expenses.  Continue Reading

Last year I introduced our annual survey so that I can make sure this blog and I are bringing you everything you want, like and need. Some of you may have participated more recently in the Beauty Blog Coalition survey which gave us amazing insight but The Plastic Diaries survey is specifically for this little corner of the internet you have stumbled upon. I want you to tell me what you like and if you do that you may win a beautiful prize from my friends at La Prairie AustraliaContinue Reading

Beauty Blog Coalition

The Beauty Blog Coalition is at it again. We want to give one lucky reader a $400 gift card (USD) just for being cool! Well, just for being cool and filling out our survey. It’s totally anonymous and is quick and easy to fill out. Think of all the beauty products you could buy with $400 if you win. Continue Reading

Over the past few weeks many of you lovely people have been having your say in our weekly polls. It has been amazing to hear your thoughts on all sorts of topics. To be honest, I have become even more intrigued to learn about you all. As much as I write this blog for me, to document my learnings and discoveries, I write it even more for all of you. Without you I would be just talking into blank open space …. or to my dogs who quite frankly were sick of hearing it in the first place.

To get to know you a little more, I have put together the first of The Plastic Diaries Annual Survey. It is a very simple questionnaire on what you like. While it is short and sweet, I do know that we all like a little incentive, am I right? To thank-you for taking 10 minutes out of your day (and 10 minutes would be an exaggeration. It should only take 2!), I have compiled my possibly best ever giveaway to date.

What You Can Win

In a complete draining of my bank account, I have decided to compile a prize pack of items I feel are ESSENTIALS. These are products I use, love and recommend. They are a mix of Aussie favourites, newly discovered loves AND hard to source items (some of which I shleped back from the US with me for this very competition). I am very excited to give this all to one lucky person.

The prize pack is valued at over $500, and I am going to reveal to you the prize pack contents in segments. To wet your whistle (what does that saying even mean?!?!), here are the first 8 products!

Aerosol sunscreen is becoming a more popular choice but in this NIVEA Cooling Sunscreen review I’m introducing you to a sunscreen feature you never knew you needed. It’s life changing and I love it, but does this one benefit counteract NIVEA’s Ultra Sport Protect Cooling Aerosol SPF50+ defects?  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
