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

Thermae Bath Spa


  Bath, a picturesque city about an hour west of London, is what is known affectionately as a spa town. The name sounds luxurious doesn’t it? It conjures up images of being pampered and having a good time. The city of Bath dates back to Roman England, when it was named Aquae Sulis for the geothermal hot springs in the area. The Romans built a large temple and bath complex to both worship and make use of these precious mineral waters. Bath next hit its peak during the Georgian period when it was fashionable for those with health complaints to… Continue Reading

The Art of Eyebrow Threading


  There is no denying that brows have been having a huge moment for a long time now and that our thirst for full, manicured face-framers isn’t abating anytime soon. We have already talked about some of the ways to maintain them (check out Miriam’s thought on tinting here) but now let’s talk about eyebrow threading. When I first started to pay attention to my eyebrows as a teenager, pencil thin ones were all the rage and this of course required a lot of upkeep. I can still vividly recall the image of one girl in my year 9 science… Continue Reading

How to Tame Your Hair Down There


  After waxing, sugaring, and shaving for the past few years, one day I had finally had enough with the high prices, annoying ingrown hairs, and the painful procedures. After considering it for a few months, I finally made the jump into the world of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle, which inhibits the hair’s future ability to grow. And this is all without disrupting or damaging your skin (yes please!). I found the whole process very interesting and conducted quite a bit of research before booking my first session. There… Continue Reading

The Lo Down on Lashes


I first dabbled in cosmetics in my college years. To begin with, all I had in my possession was some mascara and black kohl. As you can imagine, I had little to work with, but this didn’t stop me from jumping onto my computer and introducing myself to the makeup gurus of YouTube. Over the years my makeup collection grew and my eyes were opened to brands such as Urban Decay and Mac. In a literal sense too, my eyes were also opened because god knows what miracles a little mascara can do, yes, you know what I’m talking about… Continue Reading

Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting – The Lazy Girls Guide to Great Eyes


  I love eyebrows. They are definitely my favourite feature on women. I could stare at Lily Collin’s bold brows all day long. However, with my fair hair, there is no way I could ever achieve such magnificent brows without pots of eyebrow gel and a few dozen brow pencils. Whilst I could spend 15 minutes a day perfecting my brows with expensive products, I am the quintessential lazy makeup-wearer who simply doesn’t have the patience (or skill) to totally nail the bold brow look by myself. After all, it’s a very fine line between having bold eyebrows and just… Continue Reading

Sugaring: A Sweet Way to Remove Hair


  Ahh, hair removal. The bane of most girls (and guys) existence. Waxing and shaving are probably what comes to mind first, but have you heard of the latest hair removal trend ‘sugaring’? It’s a sweet deal. Whilst very similar to waxing in practice, sugaring is a natural hair removal method that has been used for centuries throughout Northern Africa, Greece, and the Middle East. And if it’s good enough for Cleopatra, it’s good enough for me to at least try! So what actually is it? Like waxing, a thick paste that is traditionally made out of raw sugar, lemon… Continue Reading
