Beauty Gift Guide Unlike Any Other

A bit more personal than your usual gift guide

Lashlashlashes! Eyelash extensions from a pro

I had a client once who had the most unbelievable eyelashes that I thought she had applied false lashes before she arrived for her makeup appointment. Turns out they were the rare and elusive eyelash extensions I had heard of but never seen or tried myself. Cue a friendship, sharing lash lady numbers and a…

Blogs, Beauty & Bubbles

I cannot believe I am finally back at it after so long since I last wrote and now this year has so much promise and excitement ahead as we leave hideous 2016 behind, and celebrate 2017! Any of you who know me know 2016 was a real doozy, but my 2017 so far has been…

Beauty Businezz

I’ve come to the realisation that a lot of my clients and people I meet aren’t too sure on the nuts and bolts of a range of beauty treatments like when to have them, how often, what to do in between etc. I thought it might help you chickens out a little if I wrote…

Tanning trials and tribulations

Tanning season is upon us ladies (and gentlemen), and to celebrate the arrival of 30 degree (Celsius!) weather, summer storms, white beaches, and an influx of mozzies and flying ants, I thought I would save you the trouble of hunting for the perfect fake tan, and discuss my own findings.

Part One: Are you even Legit?

So I asked my very best BFF what else people would like to know and she said ever so wisely, “what to look out for at a beauty salon that indicates they’re legit and hygienic” among other things. So I bring to you the ever so brilliant Sister from Another Mister Series – Part One:…

#kyliejennerchallenge

I can’t even start typing this without laughing, and crying a little inside. This is dedicated to the hundreds and hundreds of poor teenage girls who are ending their week with horrendous bruising around their lips from trying to get the Kylie Jenner lip look. So. So funny, and so sad for you and your…

Who Run the World?

Time for a feel good wonder, because while beauty and makeup are my thang, the other half of the equation has a little more substance and purpose in life. I have been a super lucky duck to have been surrounded with some of the most incredible women during my life and when I was teeny…

Salon Ettiquette

I like to hope that a beauty salon really should in essence feel like your home away from home – that’s my dream anyhow, so I totally understand some behaviours that go on when a client walks into a salon, but there are some who either don’t get the concept, or get the concept a…
