My apologies that this is late hitting your inboxes and feeds, but I still really wanted to go ahead and publish this post. I thought some of you might find my recommendations helpful after such great feedback on my Best in Beauty Products 2016 post. I wanted to highlight my favourite skincare products, as well as miscellaneous products within haircare, tanning and body categories that I thought are worth knowing about! I have stuck to products I have not talked about before on my blog or which were new discoveries for the year. These are the best of the best and I have really narrowed it down for you so you can get to know my absolute must-have products!
So I know the whole goals and resolutions thing is super cliché, but I do love January and the feeling of a blank canvas to begin your year. I have been thinking a lot about the things I want to change and accomplish, how I want to challenge myself and tackle the things I have been putting on the back burner that are really important to me. If you are into goal planning and getting to know a little more about me, keep reading!
Christmas is one of my absolute favourite times of the year! Since moving to Australia, it can be one of the hardest as I am most often away from my immediate family, however I am lucky to have an amazing family through my husband as well as some great friendships I have made here. Of course, presents are the last thing on my mind when it comes to the holiday season, but I love reading posts about other people's gifts/Christmas hauls so I thought I would share mine with you as well in case it may be interesting for some of you. If you would like reviews of any of these items, please just let me know!
For any of my readers that live in Australia and New Zealand, you would know that Mecca Maxima has really changed our relationship with makeup and the way that we have access to high-quality and high-end brands that were previously only available to us through online retailers (if they shipped to Australia that is). It has been great to be able to swatch brands in store like Stila, Urban Decay, NARS and Too Faced that were inaccessible to aussie makeup lovers in the past. This is something that I probably took for granted coming from Canada, where some of these brands are available at our local pharmacies like Shoppers Drug Mart and I had easy access to so many high-end makeup brands. Today, I just thought I'd talk to you about a recent customer service experience I've had with Mecca just in case you haven't yet shopped there or if you may be curious about their services and what they are all about.
Well, I am late coming to you with these empties from November, but I promise you I have been working hard to finish off products and this month's empties post is quite large!!! This will probably be my last empties post for 2016, unless you wanted a little review and summary of how many products I managed to get through during the year. Just let me know if that would be of interest to you. If you'd like to read my other Beauty Bin posts, you can click here.
