5 Things: November Favourites

You may have noticed it’s been a little quiet over here on the blog lately. I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything we have to do with the house etc, so blogging kind of took a back seat for a couple of weeks there. The last thing I felt like late at night was writing a blog post, or…

Vestige Verdant Skincare – Luxury Natural Skincare #ad

Vestige Verdant is a new luxury skincare brand to hit New Zealand and Australian shores. Hailing from Estonia, this brand has quickly become international and is now popular throughout the UK, France, Germany, and the Middle East. Vestige Verdant skincare is marketed as organic and cruelty free which means it gets the tick from me. The Vestige Verdant packaging is…

A Morning With Jan Lane Beauty Therapist

Earlier in the week, I went in for a morning of beauty therapy with Jan Lane. She is a qualified beauty therapist, with a practise in Mosgiel, Dunedin and I have to say she is one of the nicest people I’ve met. As soon as you walk in to her beautiful clinic, you feel instantly welcome. Jan is bubbly and…

Brunette to Blonde: My Hair Transformation

Over the past few months, I’ve been making a rather dramatic transformation to my hair. It wasn’t until I started editing the photos for this post, that I realised just how dark my hair used to be! Today I thought I’d share with you how my hairdresser transformed my hair from a dark brown, to a summery sun-kissed blonde. I…

My Natural Everyday Makeup Routine

You guys might have noticed I’ve been a little bit better with my posting over the past couple of months. I’m trying to stick to a bit of a blogging schedule, posting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I ended up missing last Friday as I just wanted to have a little bit of a long weekend with no computers! It…

Eco Tan Invisible Tan Review

There’s been a few days lately that I’ve had my shorts on, and it’s made me realise that boy oh boy my legs are pale! Of course while there is nothing wrong with being pale (and I often embrace it!), I do like a little bit of colour on my skin, especially on my legs. A slight tan helps to…

Sienna Byron Bay: Spring 17

As you guys probably already know, the only brand of nail polish I use is Sienna Byron Bay. There are two reasons for this. One, this brand is 7-free, meaning it doesn’t include many of the nasty ingredients that are in other nail polishes (you can read more about this here). Secondly, these nail polishes are SO long lasting and…

Trilogy Cleansing Balm Review

If you were a reader of my old blog, then you will remember how much I loved the brand Trilogy. It’s one of New Zealand’s most well-known and well regarded skincare brands, and for good reason too. I used to use a lot of their products, and recently re-discovered my love for the brand through this, the Trilogy Makeup Be…

Living Nature Luminous Pressed Powder

Living Nature is a brand I use on a daily basis when doing my makeup, and they create one of my all-time favourite pressed powders, ┬áthe Living Nature Luminous Pressed Powder. There are three shades in this powder for different skin tones, and I use the lightest one in the shade Light. This beautiful pressed powder contains lots of luminous…

Empties – Would I Repurchase?

I’ve been wanting to write an empties post for a while now, but had only had a couple of bits here and there I had finished. I swear I’ve run out of nearly everything recently, so I’ve got lots of products to share with you today. Personally, I love empties posts as they show what people really think of products…
