How-To: Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Winter





When the weather gets colder, we sometimes forget to adjust our skincare routines accordingly. Many people believe that just simply slapping on some extra moisturiser is enough to combat the colder months, but this is definitely not the case! There are lots of ways you can switch up your skincare routine to keep your skin feeling happy and hydrated! This post is all about my favourite products to keep my skin feeling soft and supple and to fight off those pesky dry patches.



5 Blush Shades You Need In Your Makeup Bag



Blushes are one of the most prettiest and appealing makeup products to own! There isn't anything more feminine and appealing than a bright pink blush swept over the apples of the cheeks.

If you'd like to know what 5 blushes I'd take with me to a desert island, keep reading!




Brand Spotlight: Dunkle Authentic Review



I have been meaning to put this post up for a while now, and I am so excited that it is finally ready for you! I have been really loving this new innovative Australian brand, ever since I was introduced to their amazing products at Obsession 2015 which you can read about here!

I had the pleasure of meeting Molly, the founder of Dunkle Authentic herself, and the master behind all of these beautiful, hand-crafted products. I was instantly impressed by the gorgeous, luxurious packaging and bright colours, and I appreciated the careful packaging of each item.

Brand Spotlight: A Bit Hippy Review



Today I'm talking about a natural skincare brand that is right in my backyard here in Queensland. I love finding and promoting Australian brands and think it's always nice to support good quality, local products when possible! A Bit Hippy were kind enough to send me some of their products to review for my lovely readers, however all opinions stated here are honest and my own.

Frugal Fridays: Spotlight on Essence Cosmetics


Being a beauty lover, I can often get caught up in finding “the best of the best” in every beauty product, and can sometimes forget that the most expensive products don’t always translate into the best quality products. I can be guilty of having this mentality every now and then, expecting higher-end items to always beat drugstore dupes. For all these reasons, I have created this Frugal Friday series so I can keep updating you all on my favourite drugstore and affordable makeup products that I think are great quality without costing you too much! I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, but if you’d like to read through some previous Frugal Friday posts, you can click here.

Today I’m taking you through one of my favourite drugstore brands, and I couldn’t narrow it down to just one favourite product, so I’m doing a brand spotlight on Essence Cosmetics! They are well known for having some of the most affordable makeup products at Priceline, and their products are distributed all around the world. They are also Europe’s #1 cosmetic brand*. The Essence philosophy is access to great products that inspire you to express who you are with style, confidence and fun. As a bonus, they have extremely affordable prices, with almost all products available coming in under $10 AUD. If you’re interested to have a look through some of my favourite items from the brand, keep reading on!
