Slim woman vs obese woman

The success of The Biggest Loser has made people all over the world realise they are fat and lazy … myself included. We see the contestants of the show drop weight like crazy, shedding kg’s every week and transforming their lives within just a couple of months, and most of us all joined in on the new health kick.

I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.
