Skin Care Summer Lovin’: Friday Finds #12

If I asked you what is the one thing you want to do to better prepare yourself for summer, what would you say? To look amazing in my swimsuit, or perhaps to make sure that the air conditioning is fixed, or maybe even to ensure the pool is clean.
All valid, but none of those answers are on my agenda, except for maybe the swimsuit. For me, it’s about making sure my beautiful lily white skin stays lily white, and hydrated.

Pretty Pastels Palette by Australis: Review

Late in January, Australis had a rather hefty online sale to the tune of fifty per cent off. Not only did they offer fifty per cent off,  if you spent over $50 you also got free postage. A friend and I pooled our orders together, and although we didn’t make the $50 free postage spend – which I should add is standard for the site – we walked away with a swag of products.

Dyeing Inside: A change is as good as a holiday

They say a change is as good as a holiday, and right now the budget only extends to one of those things, and I can tell you that it’s not a holiday! The last time I dyed my hair was November 2013 and it was a slight disaster. What was meant to be a lovely red turned out to be chocolate mahogany. The only image I can find is a really grainy selfie, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that is was NOT what it was meant to be. I’m confident in dyeing my own hair, and when I showed my hairdresser the images of the packaging compared with what my hair looked like, she even concluded that the wrong dye was put in the pack. It’s taken until now, April 2015 for my hair to be back to its natural colour, but I’m ready for a change!

Friday Finds #4

If there is one thing that I absolutely love about myself it’s my skin. I was blessed with the amazing peaches and cream complexion from my British heritage (thanks Dad!), and as I journey through my early thirties I’m still lucky enough to have quite youthful skin. Now, I’m the first to admit that I don’t follow a skin care regime. I don’t know if this works for or against me, but so far it’s okay. This week I’m going to show you my favourite skin health and care products to keep my skin looking the way it does, even if I do not use them all the time.

Style Icon: Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe: A woman needing no introduction. A woman who, although I admire her greatly, I do not tend to count her as one of my style icons. Why? Simply put, there are so many others who do. Don’t get me wrong, Ms Monroe is incredible, but I’ve never really been a part of the flock, rather ahead or behind.
