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

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. 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

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

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.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
