What is hyperpigmentation?

  I have been eyeing a yoga retreat for the longest time and finally made my way to Billabong Retreat for a day retreat. Located in Maraylya, 45minutes from Sydney is a hidden gem.

Shortly after, we were due to attend our first workshop on self care. 9AM - WORKSHOP  I wasn't sure what to expect at a self care workshop, perhaps ..read more

  Ok so…skin needling. To some it might sound downright terrifying – skin being poked with tiny needles…ahmm come again?

We had a chat to our beauty salon supplier friends over at The Global Beauty Group to break down the differences and get the low down on all things skin needle re ..read more

A Massage Tool That You Need

 Back pain, shoulder pain, forearm pain, leg pain... you name it! It's the joy of having a new baby, my entire body started to ache after 4 weeks of holding my big bubba. I stayed up in the middle of the night googling two things; night nannies and a massage during the first few weeks. Having a fussy newborn baby who is pretty much exclusively breastfed made leaving the house for hours at a time fairly difficult. Little Miss can't stay in one position for too long. When she was 9 weeks old and fairly well behaved, her weight had more than doubled. My poor arms, legs and back! I asked my ..read more

My Pregnancy Journey: Getting Pregnant "THE HERBAL SHIT WORKED"

2y ago
This was quite a sensitive topic for me for quite a while. My husband and I never really wanted to get married but we were both agreeable on having a child out of wedlock. You can imagine my parent's reaction when I first announced this news. Without the financial burden of a wedding we can utilise the wedding funds to purchase baby essentials. It took a while for them to come to terms, they eventually did. As always nothing went to plan, we ended up getting married and tried to kids after.  We started trying. Every 2-3 days they said. Keep your legs up and do a head stand they sai ..read more

So, winter can be tough for many reasons, especially when it comes to our skin. Whether you are a fan of winter or not, even those who do prefer the cooler months cannot deny that winter can be super tough on our skin, taking a toll on our poor faces.

Worth the Hype? Ere Perez Review

  Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation $50AUD I have two shades, Honey and Malt. Honey was a lot lighter than expected, Malt suited my NC25 tone better, I probably can go up to Chai. I now use Honey for under eye concealing which works quite well. I found the colour matching to be slightly difficult because just by looking at the shades online, I'd be a Honey. However when Honey is rubbed in, it's lighter than expected. Malt works well, especially during winter. I found the texture to be easy to spread either with fingers or brush. It's fairly creamy. I personally prefer to use a brush beca ..read more

 We all have regrets or things we wish we knew 10 years ago, some lessons we can only learn in retrospect. The following is a list I’ve compiled along the way of some beauty lessons that were learnt through good old-fashioned trial and error. Some are permanent, some not so much. Others are never too late to start implementing 1. Put down the tweezers. My poor eyebrows never and I mean never recovered from the late 90’s early aughties trend of barely-there pencil-thin eyebrows. I blame my mum for letting me pluck them in the first place. 2. That tattoo does not look as good as you thi ..read more
