Review: Innisfree Olive Real Serum


As the warmer summer months start to roll in, I can start to hear this soft noise. What is it? Oh, you know, nothing major - just my already dehydrated skin beginning to audibly crackle under the hellish Australian sun. The yearly pilgrimage to find a daytime moisturiser that ticks my extensive checklist begins - I'll start with this little bottle of Innisfree Olive Real Serum.

DIY: 3 Ingredient Occlusive Night Cream

This is a bit of a detour in my routine which is entirely Asian beauty products, but I know most of y'all are all too familiar with my skincare gripes (no! Silicone! Alcohol! Mineral oil! Damn it!) For those who have similar skincare no-nos, I've written up the recipe I used so you can make it too!

Mandom Barrier Repair HA (Super Moist) Rave



My HG of HG masks, I make the same face as that baby when I look at them!

Okay, it's not often that you find a beauty product so completely and utterly perfect for you and your needs and so totally underrated in the beauty blogosphere that it feels like it's tailored specifically for you and YOU alone? Yes, I'm talking about you, my one true love, Mandom Barrier Repair Mask.

A (Somewhat Comprehensive But Don't Quote Me on That) Guide to Oil Cleansing


How's my first attempt at creating some kind of a header? Not too shabby for Microsoft Paint, haha!

Oil Cleansing! It's become somewhat of a buzz on the beauty blogosphere, with two strong camps of "Tried It/Know What They're On About" and "What The Dickens is Cleansing With Oil? WHAT ARE GRITS?" and my objective today is to shed some light on that for members of the latter.

Recipe Time: Silverbeet, feta, caramelised onion and salami parcels.

The weather is warming up and with that comes a renewed vigour of health(ier) choices for eating and working out. Alex and I have signed up for the gym again, and with that, making better choices with food is the obvious next step. We're both pretty guilty of over indulging and eating out during the bad weather, the cold weather makes me practically sedentary! So, while the warm weather brings the sweats, sunburn and afternoon naps, hopefully it means more healthy eating and exercising too!


Tonight I kinda flew by the seat of my pants, I had an idea of what I wanted to make, and it kind of turned out a totally different way. Oh well, these things happen! It was a happy accident, I actually really enjoyed what I created and I am sure it's going to be something I make more of in the future.
