Chronicle of a Floater


  By now you have probably heard the hype about floatation therapy. All the kids are doing it and raving about how it’s wonderful for your mind and body. Being the curious and open-minded person that I am I embarked on a journey to find out more. My first impression was that ‘floating’ is just jumping into a salty bath and that I would come out with super powers. Then I was lucky enough to meet the beautiful married couple who own the newly opened Pure Zen Floatation rooms in Phillip. Stacey, the owner, told me how she was recommended… Continue Reading

Treatment Review: Microblading


I’m not sure about you but I’ve always had a bit of an obsession with brows.   When I found out about feather tattoo and microblading, I was intrigued. My first thoughts were of my mum’s friends with their blue stained tattoo brows which I definitely was not a fan of. Microblading or feathering tattoos have come a long way since then. Rather than a solid block of colour, hair strokes are drawn on, mimicking natural brow hairs. I recently did mine and cannot be happier. I do not need to fill in my brows any more as I wake… Continue Reading

Period Panties – 9.5 new age nappies out of 10


  Have you ever thought about how much waste you (I’m presuming only females are reading this) produce every month from your period? Think of the amount of tampons and pads you go through just in those 4-7 days! Now times that by twelve and then times that by the number of adult females in the world… that’s a lot of gross waste hanging about the earth. It’s become clear that something needs to be done and unlike plastic bags, the solution isn’t as easy as just stop selling them. That would end in disaster. And a lot of blood… Continue Reading

Review – MUD Body Mask


  Mud: it gets on our boots and it’s kind of gross and messy. It is not usually something we think of when it comes to skincare. But here I am, having just rubbed mud all over my skin deliberately. Not your everyday ‘it just rained and I stepped in a puddle’ type of mud, this was a MUD (My Ultimate Detox) Original body mask. MUD’s key ingredient is bentonite clay which has an electrical charge that livens when mixed with water. This allows the clay to attract toxins and impurities out of your skin.   Here is what I… Continue Reading

The Perfection of Style


  A wonderful new exhibition displaying a beautiful collection of the seminal designer Yves Saint Laurent came to my hometown, Seattle, this October. The Seattle Art Museum is host to this inspiring collection featuring over 110 complete outfits spanning more than 40 years of Laurent’s career. The outfits ranged Laurent’s innovative ready-to-wear collections to custom made couture pieces. YSL saved everything when he started his own fashion house in 1962, the collection features an amazing range of outfit sketches and fabric samples, giving an incredible insight into his creative process. From the moment I entered the exhibition rooms I was… Continue Reading

Review: Good Dye Young


In typical everyday life, we don’t tend to see people walking around with hair that is so bright you need sunglasses just to look at it. But why not? Well now there is nothing holding you back. Let me introduce you to Good Dye Young. Good Dye Young is a new, do-it-yourself, at home hair colour that has already made a huge impression, appearing in publications such as Nylon, Vogue and Bustle.

The Museum of Bags and Purses


  Princess Grace’s gorgeous face on a sandwich board tucked between bicycles on a narrow canal-street in Amsterdam advertises ‘Royal bags and purses.’ It’s the Museum of Bags and Purses and it’s a little off the tourist track but attracts an assortment of visitors. Behind its rather ordinary door is a rather extraordinary display showing the development of bags and purses from the Middle Ages to the present day. I was told it is the largest collection of its kind in the world and that’s not unexpected when you consider the uniqueness of it all. The Museum of Bags and… Continue Reading

Review – Laura Mercier Highlighters


  Highlighters. So many to choose from. Shimmery, glittery, pearly, embossed with brand names and swirly patterns that make them look so pretty you won’t want to ever put your little paws in them. So about a year ago when I officially became a Beauty Bitch for an entire cosmetic department, I would walk around trying to familiarise myself with everyone’s star products so that I would be on top of current trends and so that I would know what the hell I was talking about when people asked me about products from different brands. Look I’ll be honest here,… Continue Reading
