All About Skin

The largest organ on the human body.   Now, I am sure there are some male porn stars who would challenge me on this, but this article is about skin care so let’s keep it classy; at least until I write an article about the other. Back to skin. We slather it with all sorts of stuff to keep it supple and looking good, but do we know what the stuff in our skin care products actually does to benefit our skin? As a long standing beauty bitch, I have used a great deal of product over the… Continue Reading

A Masterclass with Amy Erbacher


  We were treated to a beauty masterclass at the Canberra Centre last weekend, lead by beauty therapist and wellness expert, Amy Erbacher.

Here’s what I took away from the session with Amy:   Extrinsic & Intrinsic Factors influencing our skin We need to consider both extrinsic and intrinsic… Continue Reading

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

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

Why I Choose Cruelty Free Beauty Products


  If you like smothering yourself in lovely skincare products and can’t leave the house without makeup on but also think animals are just the greatest, then you might one day face the same dilemma I did. I was always aware that most cosmetics are tested on animals, but I never thought about it too much until one day it really started to bother me. I suddenly couldn’t deal with the fact that animals were being tortured just so that I could look nice(r). So I did some research and discovered Choose Cruelty Free, a not for profit Australian organisation… Continue Reading
