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

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!

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!
