Luxury Beauty Box : Cohorted Beauty January Edition

It's that time again!! Cohorted Beauty Box* time! I love a good subscription box as much as the next babe and I have had my fair share of dodgy ones. This box has slowly become one of my favourite boxes and I cannot wait to share about the latest box. Who am I kidding...just hurry up and keep reading!

Getting the Perfect Summer Glow

So we are past the mid point of summer now, and I don't know about you, but I am really feeling the summer vibes at the moment. I have been wanting to build up that bronzed look, but without heading out into the sun.

Luxury Retreat : Belle Heath Guest House

So we've left Byron Bay and are back on the road. We had one more stay before we reached Belle Heath Guest House, but I didn't take any photos, so on we go to the next beautiful location - a beautiful guest house hidden near Richmond NSW.

POP CBR | The Canberra Local Makers Hub

If there is one thing I love, it is being able to shop small, local makers. I am a big believer in shopping local where ever I am and Canberra has a wide array of amazing makers - from ceramics, to chocolates and gin. You can now shop all of these in one place.

This Years Must Have Summer Essentials

It has been a scorcher of a summer this year. Canberra has had lots of 35 degree + days and even a few in the 40's! We travelled up to QLD to escape some of the heat that's how intense it has been this year! Naturally, being another hot summer, I have developed some summer essentials to help keep me cool and make it through the summer heat.

Tropical Bliss : Villa Rustica

Earlier this month Dave and I set off on our bi-annual (I'm saying it's bi-annual now, so Dave we have to make this a thing) trip up to QLD to visit our good friends. Being such a long way away from Canberra (14 hours or something in the car) we decided we'd take our time on the journey home and took the trip back over four days.

Welcome back to another Foundation Files! Today we are to talk about one of my most asked about foundations. The Dior Backstage Face and Body claims to be a makeup artists secret weapon to create an instantly flawless complexion.

They are a new, innovative range of skincare products following a minimalist approach to skincare. Stay tuned to find out how you can win some of your own products to try out.

Best in Beauty 2018 : Skincare

I know, I know, I should've done this during December, but oh well, here we are, we are doing it now. It's time for me to share my Best in Beauty awards for 2018. Today we are going to be talking about skincare.

Best in Beauty 2018 : Make Up

This was probably a post I should've done in December 2018, but it's something I didn't think about until January 1, so here we are! While we are thinking about 2019, I wanted to share some of my favourite beauty products of 2018, because 2018 really had some amazing products. First up let's talk make up.

A letter to my younger self

Dear Laura,

With the New Year fast approaching, it has got me thinking about a lot of things. On a drive home recently, it occurred to me how happy I am at the moment and how grateful I am for where I have ended up. It got me thinking back to all the challenging times growing up and all the things I wish I'd known, hence this blog post! It inspired me to write a letter to my younger self, with the top 5 lessons or ideas that I have been challenged by and what I wish I'd known when I was growing up.

The Foundation Files : Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

It has been a while since I have added to the Foundation Files, but I thought I'd kick off the year with a foundation review! We are taking it back to the affordable foundations and reviewing the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation*.

Luxury Beauty Box : Cohorted Beauty

I am a big fan of subscription boxes, especially beauty themed boxes. They are a great way to try out different products you might not usually buy and to discovered new brands. I have had a new subscription box land on my desk and I am very excited about it!
