Unlike my other posts, this one is not going to be so glamorous. As we all know, beauty isn’t just about a flawless complexion, blended eyeshadow and winged eyeliner sharp enough to cut a biatch. Sometimes, beauty is about those things which are in our minds, not so beautiful. We all fight battles with conditions that can lead us to think our imperfections are not ‘beautiful, and that these don’t deserve to be talked about and shown off on our blogs. Truth is, I want to talk about these things because I feel like these battles and imperfections are what make us relatable. We can learn a lot from other people experiencing similar issues, and we can seek comfort in the fact that we aren’t alone. So I want to talk about a condition that plagued me in my teenage years, and to a certain extent even today. It’s not pretty, it’s not glamorous, and it’s not pleasant. I want to talk about sweat.
Well hello beauties!
I recently went to Bali with my boyfriend and I wanted to share with you all some of the highlights from the trip eg, things I saw, what we did and where we stayed. And to share some more exciting news, I came back to Australia as a Fiance! I also wanted to use my blog as another way to share the beauty of Bali, it has really blown our minds and we can’t wait to go back!
I’ve always loved the strong heat, and in the Summer you’ll find me constantly outdoors, in the sun, in the water, in the air. But this type of love for Summer doesn’t come without a cost. As well as issues with sun damage, this Summer I’ve also experienced the worst bout of dry skin I think I’ve ever had. I’m still not accustomed to being in the very dry South Australian heat, originally being from North NSW. This means my beauty habits when it comes to exfoliating and moisturising my limbs falls pretty short of adequate for the climate I’m in now.
For as long as I can remember I haven’t had a lot of hair. I’ve mostly always had it long, but it’s always been very thin. I have that baby fine, slippery type of thin hair that’s hated among those who – like me – are unlucky enough to suffer from it. I know what you thick haired girls are thinking here though – ‘I wish my hair was thin’. We always seem to want what we don’t have. But for those lucky girls, this post will hopefully enlighten you to the dark world that we thin-haired girls live in, so read on and sympathise. For my sisters out there though, this is for you.
A few weeks ago I opened my emails to find an invitation that excited me to the ends of the Earth! The LUSH Rundle Mall store was reopening and was set to be the BIGGEST LUSH store in Australia. Right here in little Adelaide! Promote SA worked with LUSH to put on the media event. We were chosen to be the first people to see it, a night before it’s official opening day. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!
