Sephora Australia Media Event Showcase

Writing that headline made me feel both sick and excited. Sick? What the? Well, if you have been following this blog for longer than a minute you will have probably seen me write about the ongoing rumors of Sephora’s plan to enter the Australian market. It’s spread like wildfire at least once per year for the last 5 years, but now in 2014 it’s no longer just a rumor. Sephora have released an official statement to confirm they will be opening a store in Sydney, Australia.

I would love to ramble on about the history behind past rumors and why I was so skeptical about sharing this news until a press release hit my inbox, but i’ve realised that will do no good. I could also talk about how Sephora earlier this year led Australian’s to believe they would be shipping to Australia from Sephora.com. Again, no point rehashing. However, now that the news officially broken that Sephora will indeed be opening a store in Australia I’d like us to take a quick bullet point look over what we do and don’t know … so far.  Continue Reading

Spring Clean Makeup Bag

Spring is almost over for me but I still thought I should do a little spring clean of my makeup bag before I hit summer. I like to pick out a bunch of new products to keep in my makeup bag for an entire season, and occasionally change out one or two products when I am trialling. I don’t like to trial all new products at the same time because if I have a bad reaction to something I won’t be able to narrow down the perpetrator.

The contents of this makeup bag is the makeup products I used mostly throughout Autumn. These are my day-to-day products which I like to keep neutral or trans-seasonal so when I am in a rush I can throw it on and know I won’t look out of place. All my other makeup is within easy reach so if I feeling like something different I can grab an eyeshadow or lipstick to change it up.  Continue Reading

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.

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
