Taking Care of Your Nails When You Have a Nail Polish Obsession

I have a red nail polish obsession; it's not a secret. Over the years I have changed the colour a few times but I really love my polished nails. I feel more together with them painted. When I used to pole dance in competitions, I used to break my thumbnails quite far up the nail. So I had to get two acrylic nails to strengthen my thumbnails. I decided to learn how to do acrylics myself to save some cash. Now it's just me and my red polished nails. But how do I look after them? Read on to find out...

Australian Beauty Brands

In the interest of trying to support local Australian businesses I am always on the look out for great Australian skincare and cosmetics brands. While I am totally able to list out quite a few skincare and personal care brands I am in love with, I know less about Australian makeup brands. So we're all in the learning boat together! 

Being a fan of Organic and Natural products I am going to focus on these for this blog post. You may have read the list of natural products that I use in the Natural Lip Balms: Manuka Honey Benefits post.

I love reading about other people’s favourite products. Most of the bloggers I follow have posts every month summarising their monthly finds. I learn so much from these posts. Plus I totally want to buy heaps of stuff.

So what do I carry around all the time? What are my all time favourite products? Read on to find out…

Tips and Tricks: Clarisonics are too Harsh for Me!

I am a sucker for new things, I have a Scholl Pedi Electronic Foot File plus I also have a Parlux hair dryer. So when 2004 came along and the Clarisonic face brush was introduced, I wanted to try one. I did lots of research online and in stores when they hit Australia and I finally decided to get one at David Jones since they have a great return policy. I love the feeling you get when you pull something out of the box that you feel will change your life. It doesn't happen often, let's face it, we don't really NEED much to get by day to day. It also seems to happy less, because some products don't live up to the hype.

Beauty Review: Top Mascaras for 2017

There are so many cosmetic products out there; from the well known luxury brands, to the best drug store buys, to the natural cosmetics brands and brands you have never heard of.

I will talk about packaging, they way they feel in my hand, their brush applicators, how they went on my lashes, we'll compare photos of each product when they are on my eyelashes and then rate them out of 5. Hopefully, after that we can work out which product is the Top Mascara for 2017 and finish the Set to Glow Beauty Review on a high note!
