BEST NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS January 2014

It’s been a slow start in the world of beauty launches for 2014. In fact it is so slow I just thought I would have a lazy start to the year and take a month to share my favourites. Most of the industry really kicks up the new launches from February, but some brands wanted to sneak in early and make an impact in January.

We saw 40+ fabulous new products launch in January across all beauty categories. Read on to find out which goodies in hair, nails, makeup and more took our fancy.  Continue Reading

Valentine's Day

We are 10 days away from Valentine’s Day so it’s time to commence the romantic chatter. I personally think the Hallmark holiday of Valentine’s Day puts the emphasis on all the wrong places. Forget about spending time and money on showing someone else you love them – it’s time to show yourself you love you!

How many of you can think to yourself, “I love me”? It was something I could never have fathomed until very recently but with my lifestyle improvements it would seem my self-loathing and depression has lifted. Prior to that, there were few things that really lifted my confidence levels. Despite my crippling body image issues, one thing that strangely made me feel good was a beautiful set of matching lingerie. It sounds ridiculous but the power of  a matching bra and panties can do great things for the mind.

Lingerie isn’t always about the people who get to see you wear it. For me, that was never the case. I love good lingerie because of how it fits and feels. Slipping on a sexy set of silks under regular, boring clothes does feel different. It makes you feel different and that is why this Valentine’s Day I want you to focus on making yourself feel good before anyone else. To help you along, I’m sharing with you some of the most gorgeous lingerie buys available right now.  Continue Reading

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!

To those who celebrate this holiday (?) I wish you lots of love, peace and joy. I personally like to celebrate Valentine’s Day by eating as much boxed chocolate as I can, adorning my nails with Valentine’s Day prettiness and playing with the girliest of girly makeup. And when it comes to beauty products, is there anything more girly than love hearts? I think not.

Here are my top picks for love heart inspired beauty.  Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
