HAVE A SPA FACIAL EVERY NIGHT


A spa worthy facial everyday sounds pretty amazing right, especially when it's in the comfort of your own bathroom.


I have tried a few of these face cleansing devices in the past so they aren't a new concept, however I definitely think that I have found my favourite.

BERRIES, WINES AND PURPLE TONED REDS

 

Berries, wines and no I'm not talking about lunch. The thing I look forward to most about the cooler weather, other than my makeup not melting off in heat, is definitely the deep and bold Autumn/Winter lip colours you can rock.

 
From wine berry hues to purple based reds, this is a collection of my favourite products for this season and there is something for everyone. Read on for more or watch the video here.

THE TRAVEL DIARIES / MT. TAMBORINE

Nestled in the Gold Coast hinterlands on the north side of Mt. Tamborine sits Pethers Rainforest Retreat; a secluded resort that consists of ten private treehouses surrounded by peaceful rainforest.

 
I'm here to tell you all about my experience at Mt. Tamborine in Queensland; the place I stayed, where I dined, what I saw and more!

HOW I BLOG EVERYDAY

 

I was recently a guest speaker at Obsession 2015, a beauty and blogging conference where Brisbane girls got together to touch base with brands and talk about everything beauty and blogging. During my presentation, one of the questions I was asked was how I blog every day regarding staying motivated, finding the time amongst other commitments and building your blog up to the point of putting out content so regularly. I thought it was such a great question and definitely something I would have asked back in 2010 when I was trying to build my blog regarding content.

If you're a blogger then you know what I mean when I say that there are no real days off. We are always doing something for our blog be it taking photos, writing posts, scheduling posts or even just brainstorming ideas for future articles. It's a 24/7 job but definitely the most rewarding experience.

As I know a lot of you have your own blogs and since blogging is such as passion of mine, I would love to write more of these types of articles where I share tips and tricks that have worked for me that hopefully you can apply back to your blog.

Without further ado, here are my big tips for reaching the point of blogging every day.

A WEEKEND AT THE PRO MAKEUP AND BEAUTY SHOW 2015

This weekend I attended the Pro Makeup and Beauty Show, basically a massive room absolutely full of makeup and beauty goodies with eyeshadow and lipstick in every direction you turn.

 
It's a Brisbane based event similar to the world resound IMATS, however smaller. Big brands like Inglot and Crown Brushes attend as well as a fab amount of smaller brands that always surprise me with their incredible and unique products.

PRO BLOW DRY FROM HOME WITH CASUALCURL

With the CasualCurl, one of my favourite looks to achieve are these wearable soft curls for everyday salon quality hair without leaving the house.


This style adds texture and volume to my hair and leaves me looking like I just stepped out of a "round brush blow dry" at the salon with bouncy voluminous curls.

See how I created this look with the pictorial below.

AN AFTERNOON AT HARBOUR DAY SPA

Located just half an hour out of Brisbane CBD sits a luxury day spa with bay views. It's the perfect escape from the fast-paced city life that can get a little stressful at times. So instead of running around the city at meetings, yesterday I slowed the pace and spent the day unwinding at Harbour Day Spa. It was an all encompassing experience from the head, with a coconut oil treatment, to the toes, with an oil infused foot scrub.
 
It's a spa that obtains the philosophy of feel good, look good. So instead of leaving the spa oily and in a hoodie, you step out in just blown hair and freshly applied makeup. Let me take you though my pamper day step by step and explain all the treatments I experienced.

PRODUCTS THAT DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED MY SKIN

There are those products that stand out to you as you realise "wow, this is actually doing something" and these three are definitely in that category.

Each of these have dramatically improved my skin and changed it for the better so in this post I'm shining light on them. Often times I would look over products such as this when it comes to writing posts because I use them everyday and figure I've given them enough attention but they are worth talking about!

THE BEST OF PRESSED POWDERS

A good pressed powder can make or break your foundation; seamlessly setting your base into place with a flawless finish or becoming too powdery and thick.

Here are three products on the market that I can rely on to leave skin feeling and looking smooth and matte.
