Australis Cosmetics Killer Cuvers Mascara Tube

I’m terribly lazy when it comes to using a curling wand on my lashes, so I like to use a curling mascara. Curling mascaras can sometimes feel like a bit of a myth until you find one that actually gives you a bit of lift. If you want to make things extra difficult try finding one on a budget as well. I am always on the hunt so when Australis Cosmetics, on of my favourite Australian drugstore beauty brands released Killer Curves mascara I was excited to see if it could perform to my standard. Read this review for my opinion on the curve appeal.  Continue Reading

Last week saw the official launch of ACPs 30 Days Of Fashion & Beauty for 2011. If you were reading this blog a year ago you may remember that I talked about some of the 2010 events. I also attended some but for some reason I lacked posting about them. I don’t know what I was thinking …. they were awesome!

I couldn’t let the weeks roll past without giving you a little snapshot of the events I think you HAVE to get involved in. But first ….

In case the enormous range and low price points didn’t inspire you enough to shop at Priceline, I think their new initiative will. In honour of Australian women (who happen to make up over 95% of Priceline’s customers), Priceline have created a way to give back to women. The Priceline Sisterhood is a national community program hoping to not only address the main issues affecting womens health and lifestyle, but actually make a difference in it.

What Is The Priceline Sisterhood?

I will take the exact phrasing from the official press release because it really does explain it best:

A national community program that has been developed to respond to the major health and wellbeing concerns of Australian women. The initiative will raise awareness and funds for six charities that provide help and support to women in the areas of heart health, mental health, family wellbeing and fighting cancer.

Each month one of the six charities will be put in the spotlight. Through national in-store promotions and online initiatives, the charities will receive lots of exposure and hopefully lots of money.

The Charities

  1. Alzheimer’s Australia is the national body for people living with dementia, their families and carers. It provides leadership in policy and innovative services for those affected by dementia.
  2. ACCF is dedicated to eliminating cervical cancer in Australia and in developing countries through public awareness programs, screening, clinics and vaccinations. Its programs provide support for women living with cervical cancer and related women’s issues, and their families. Continue Reading

Professional beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries shares her personal blogger burnout story and experience

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series about my personal experience with Blogger Burnout – My Demise + My Recovery + My Future

I started The Plastic Diaries in 2008, became a full-time blogger in 2010 and vanished from the blogging universe in 2015. Where did I go? Why? What happened to me? These are questions that have been asked of me during my 18+ month disappearance. The short answer was blogger burnout – a rarely spoken of condition that is fast becoming a serious concern amongst the influencer industry. Have you ever followed a blogger and notice that one day they have just disappeared? Their blog stopped posting new content, their social media went untouched – it happens often. In my almost 9 years of blogging I have lost count of the bloggers that have come and gone, most of which I have no idea why or where they went.

Upon my return to blogging at the end of last year I’ve put off explaining what exactly occurred in my life. I confided in a few select friends and trusted individuals about my story but I’ve brushed over it with the wider community by saying the cause was “personal stuff”. I don’t believe bloggers owe anyone an explanation when they disappear but I know that when my favourites have gone AWOL I’ve missed them and been concerned for their wellbeing. I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
