Beauty 101: Setting Sprays for Every Budget Explained




Whether you want to believe it or not, setting sprays are definitely a necessary step in any lady (or man's) makeup routine. For me, they really do assist with increasing the longevity of your makeup and also reduce the chances of makeup transfer when you're using your phone or touching your face. For those that may not be too familiar with setting sprays, I've broken down some of my favourite ones and given you lots of options and price tags to choose from.


Dove Hair Therapy Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner: Review



I don't usually switch up my hair products as much as my makeup products, but this new range from Dove has reminded me that more affordable brands do have a lot to offer in the haircare department! Although we often don't give supermarket brands much credit, they're constantly working on their formulas and prices to produce high quality products that don't cost an arm and a leg. I run out of shampoos and conditioners fairly quickly with my long hair so I can't always afford to buy from a salon. Today I'm reviewing the Dove Hair Therapy Nutritive Solutions, Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner* which were kindly sent to me. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% honest and my own, as always!



Brand Highlight: Skinstitut Skincare

Brand Highlight: Skinstitut Skincare

I've discovered the brand Skinstitut over a year ago, when I first visited Australian Skin Clinics to give my skin some extra TLC. I have combination skin, that tends to be normal/dry throughout most of my face with some oil in the t-zone. Unfortunately I suffer from hormonal breakouts, and have gone through some periods of mild-moderate acne breakouts all over my face.

Skinstitut has been quickly growing into my favourite skincare brand. Their products have had a dramatic improvement on my skin over the past year so I thought it was about time I did a post about their products for you!



Jord Wood Watches: Review & Styling

Jord Wood Watches Review

Wood watches are definitely a growing trend amongst many women since they offer a unique take on the usual metal bands we're all used to. Jord Wood Watches offer something to express your individual personality, while also still being quite practical and adding something special  to your daily wardrobe. Today I'm reviewing the Sidney Maple & Rose Gold Watch* ($199 USD) which has been my new obsession over the last few weeks!




Hyams Beach Candles: Review

Hyams Beach Candles Review Soy Melts


I’m a huge candle lover but have not yet done any reviews on my blog! I’m hoping over the next few months to branch out a little more to cover reviews and topics outside of beauty to keep things interesting so I was happy to review a candle and soy melts from the lovely Sonya at Hyams Beach Candles. If you love discovering new candle brands and boutiques, keep reading!


August Monthly Favourites: 2015


Personal Update: These August monthly favourites have really made me excited! I only have one more monthly favourites post to prepare for you all before my WEDDING which is fast approaching!!! I am working hard to prepare enough content for at least one post a week, and hopefully more if I can. I will be offline from mid October to the end of November as I'll be away on my honeymoon (USA/Canada) and enjoying some time with my family. I'll post another reminder about this closer to that time!

For favourites this month, I really just kept it simple and stuck to items that I have basically been using each and every day. Keep reading for full details on the products shown above!
