Natural Beauty with Lola Berry


  We have been lucky enough to experience a number of amazing events at the Canberra Centre since the launch of its new beauty precinct. We’ve been to a Sip and Scent masterclass, a workshop on Minimal Beauty and on Sunday we popped along to hear nutritionist, yogi, TV presenter and author Lola Berry speak on natural beauty and nutrition. As soon as we lined up to receive our delicious smoothie (no doubt made from Lola’s recipes) and take out seat, we noticed a different vibe in the dedicated event space compared to the day before. Lola was casually lounging… Continue Reading

Minimal Beauty with Eleanor Pendleton


  Over the weekend we had the pleasure of attending a ‘Minimal Beauty’ masterclass at the Canberra Centre with the founder and director of Gritty Pretty, Eleanor Pendleton. For those who don’t know, Gritty Pretty is an online beauty magazine and e-commerce site. After enjoying the Centre’s new beauty precinct every day since it launched (the joys of being unemployed), I was very keen to try out some of my goodies, including a vivid turquoise cream eyeshadow from 3ina. I built my entire outfit for the day around this eyeshadow, choosing a brightly printed dress that matched it in colour.… Continue Reading

Sip and Scent


  This evening we had the pleasure of attending a Sip and Scent Masterclass in the new Canberra Centre beauty precinct. The class, the first of it’s kind we were told, brought together the art of crafting a martini and building a fragrance around the hero ingredients of our bespoke cocktail. After taking our seat in the new dedicated event space, Canberra’s ‘Martini Whisperer’ Phillip Jones prepared each of us a very special drink created especially for the event. ‘When I was asked to create a bespoke martini for the Canberra Centre I knew it had to be beautiful,’ Phillip… Continue Reading

Canberra’s Newest Beauty Destination is Here


  Today the doors to the new beauty precinct within the Canberra Centre officially opened. We got into town bright and early to get a first look at everything before the doors opened. As we made our way through the morning frost and mist we were treated to flower installations created by The Floral Society, who transformed four everyday objects into beautiful floral sculptures.     Once snug and warm within the Canberra Centre, we lost no time inspecting the new space. Regular shoppers will barely recognise the re-vamped Monaro Mall, which is now a bright, modern, and open space.… Continue Reading

Health and Fitness with Tim Robards


  Today’s workshop at the Canberra Centre had the most attendees that we have seen for some time. Although the food from Thrive was delicious, the juices from TopJuice divine, and the goodie bags on point, it might just have been because the person leading the health, wellness and nutrition workshop was none other than the original Bachelor himself, Mr Tim Robards. And yes, he was every bit as chiseled of jaw and ripped of body as he appeared on TV. You may not know (we certainly didn’t) that Tim is actually a chiropractor and has developed a whole healthy… Continue Reading
