There is no denying that ‘green beauty’, ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ based beauty products are on the rise in popularity across the consumer market and have been for quite some time now. Once a rarity, now our shop displays are littered with products that claim to be on one end of the natural to organic beauty spectrum. From past events with some beauty brands, we’ve seen that sometimes, these claims are not always true (think back to the Organic Instinct scandal). Could companies be catching onto this consumer trend by labelling their products as ‘natural’ or organic to appeal to the wider audience, when in fact it could be a false statement?
You all know how big I am on maintaining my skin, and I’m always looking for the next intensive skin treatment with effective active ingredients to give my skin a little more TLC when I need it. Usually it will involve some deep treatments once a week or so, but I recently decided to embark on a structured, 28-day programme: the Jurlique 28-Day Radiance Renewal programme, and I wanted to share my thoughts on it, as well as share some exciting news on how you can nab this for yourself for free.
If you didn’t already know that Youngblood Cosmetics is one of my favourite makeup brands, I’ll come right out and say it. Youngblood Cosmetics is one of my favourite makeup brands. I first fell in love with them years back after trying their base products in a salon with my Mum, and we’ve both been hooked since. In fact, their mineral powders are one of the few mineral foundation powders I can use without getting irritated (think itchy skin). Youngblood already have an extensive repertoire of cosmetic products, from foundations to eyeshadows, highlighters and lipsticks. Recently, they have expanded their collection by releasing an exciting range of retractable matte lip crayons in seven shades: The Colour Crays Matte Lip Crayons. In this post I’ll go over the range, and we get up close and personal with a little Swatchfest for you all.
With the surge in popularity for true crime, it can be overwhelming to decide which podcast to tune in to and catch the next murder/crime case. This post will share some of the podcasts I’ve been absolutely consumed by over the last few months and why. Equally important, I’ll mention the podcasts I felt ‘meh’ about and provide reasons for why they didn’t appeal to my true crime tastes.

Summer is my absolute favourite time of the year. I’m a real water baby, love the feeling of heat on my skin, exploring the vast coastlines of Australia and sipping wine by the garden. Every year I come across a few gems that make me love Summer just that little bit more, so in this post I’ll be sharing the products that have become staples for me in the warm months.
Let me start by saying this post has been brewing in my drafts folder for a long time, mostly because I had a hard time explaining this obsession to other people. It wasn’t exactly my fear that people would think me a morbid person, it was the difficulty in attempting to explain why I was so entertained and captivated by hearing such stories, because I couldn’t really comprehend it myself. But as I looked into it, I saw that not only was it more common than I thought, but also that recognising how our minds are attracted to something so macabre is a complex and difficult task that I wanted to understand more. This week, I’m talking the human obsession with true crime.
