Hello everyone, 

When it comes to travelling domestically or internationally, you have to remember to pack light because that's the way to go when it comes to haircare products. Neon and Co offer the perfect set to ensure that your hair stays cleaner and fresher....

Now we all know that any hair care products especially when they're bulky - can look to weigh your luggage down, which is why it's so important to reassess the contents of your bag and ensure that you travel light. (Forget the full sized products guys). It's usually the hair care products that are the culprit so make sure you look to source products that come in travel friendly sizes...it will be so worth it and you won't spend a fortune paying for extra baggage weight. 

Neon and Co which was founded in 2013 in South Yarra where they have established a range of salon worthy products ranging from shampoos, conditioners, treatment oils and so much more. Their products smell amazingly natural and organic which is ideal for me! 

Some useful and lightweight haircare products that are so worth packing include: 
  • Neon & Co - The Blow Dry Shampoo - This little beauty works to remove any build up of residue, oil and dirt. The shampoo consists of natural and gentle ingredients which won't look to strip your hair. It's also very lightweight and leaves your hair feeling quite bouncy and soft after cleansing. There are no nasties contained in the product (i.e no parabens or sulphates which is essentially better for your hair and health in the longer run). 
  • Neon & Co - Conditioner - Once again the conditioner smells amazingly natural and fresh. I always love a good product that smells nice because it means that I can comfortably lather it all over my hair. The formula on this conditioner is very lightweight so it won't leave your hair feeling weighed down. Another benefit of using this conditioner is that if you constantly get messy and tangled hair, this is the perfect detangler in this case! 
  • Neon & Co - Treatment Oil - So if you have been travelling for some quite time, you may find your hair feeling dull, dry or lacking life perhaps? Well this little bottle of miracle is a treatment oil and so it helps to create more shine for your hair as well as seal away any frizzy bits and fly-aways. You don't need that much oil for a treatment - just a tiny amount is sufficient. 
  • Neon & Co - Hair Shot Ampoules - This interesting little product works to deliver moisture and prevents further damage for your hair. It's ideal if your hair is looking weak, brittle or even has split ends. This hair shot looks to repair damaged ends and strengthen it as well by improving your hair's elasticity. If you're wanting your hair to look much healthier once again, simply use a few drops of the Hair Shot every few days.

Hello beauties, 

Recently I looked to try out a Taiwanese skincare brand called LOVEISDERMA that looks to offer hydration benefits for the skin as well as a more youthful and healthier appearance. 

From the skincare range of LOVEISDERMA, they include the Premium Bio Cellulose Facial masks which looks to hydrate and nourish your skin, their B5 Hydraboost Gelly Masque which instantly moisturises and refreshes your skin's appearance as well as their Hydramax Serum which restores and hydrates your skin. I've always been curious to try out other Asian skincare brands on the market and so finally I got the chance to check out their range to see what it can do for my skin which got me so excited. 

The LOVEISDERMA's channel currently extends to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, USA, Mexico, Canada and of course Australia. To learn more about their range, be sure to check them out on their official website here. 

Full thoughts of some of their selected products I recently tested out are provided below: 

  • B5 Hydraboost Gelly Masque - 500g - This container comes in quite a large amount containing your much needed hydraboost product. What it looks to offer is that it helps to decongest your clogged pores and looks to lift away any impurities from the skin's surface - ideal after a day out being exposed to dust and dirt. After using this masque, it even allows your other skincare products to absorb better on the skin so this is certainly a plus for me! The texture comes in a gel-based jelly and it helps to retain your skin's natural moisture. To use I would simply lather on the jelly onto my face and leave it on for about 20 minutes and then look to rinse it all off. The feeling afterwards is refreshingly nice and what better way to set the mood right at home for your own spa and pampering time. 
  • Hydramax Serum - 30ml - This serum comes fragrance and paraben free make it safe and gentle to use on your skin in the longer run. Basically this serum looks to restore and hydrate your skin so that it looks healthier once again. There is a high concentration of Sodium Hyaluronic acid that looks to increase moisture retention and helps to strengthen your skin's barrier. After using this toner for a few weeks, I found that my skin felt tighter, toned and more firm. The serum works wonderfully well to heal any damaged skin tissue on the skin and so by using this serum every night as part of your nightly skincare routine, you can be guaranteed with better and healthier skin results. 

  • Premium Bio Cellulose Facial Masks - These are designed to be very hydrating for the skin as it looks to refresh and soothe your skin. Also, it looks to smooth out any fine lines and repair any skin damage. The face mask claims to be a fluid-holding capacity of up to 100 times its dry weight which I decided to test out for myself. The face masks are made with a unique fibre structure (that is completely organic) which looks to transfer the ingredients to the skin in a much effective way. After using this facial mask, I could instantly feel that my face was soft and more refreshed. You will be amazed by the quality of the fibre structure because it's comparable to the cellulose fibre that is commonly used for wound care - meaning that it absorbs and retains the ingredients within the mask. There are three masks in sterile foil packets and once you open the packet, it's ready for skin application. Then look to relax while the mask works to rejuvenate and relax your skin!

Hello everyone, 

shu uemura's Play Date 2017 Spring and Summer collection is now available. See the below to see what their new range is all about! 

For the Play Date 2017 range by shu uemura's, it's all about the playful colours which remind you of the 70s and 80s fashion. I looked to test out the shu uemura's new Play Date 2017 beauty selections that are unique and fun to play with if you're looking to jazz up your make-up look. They include their Rogue Unlimited Supreme Matte lipstick, Play Date Eye and Cheek Palette in Pink Sundae as well as their Drawing pencil in Sky Blue. 

These shades are adorable and full of fun pastels that would be ideal for the modern woman. I have created a simple look by using just a selection of shu uemura's Play Date so if you're curious to learn more about these particular products, keep on reading beauties! 

 Rogue Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick in shade M RD 144 
- RRP $45

Shu uemura's Rogue Unlimited Supreme Matte lipsticks in shade M RD 144 is of a gorgeous bright red shade that really makes a statement. The lipstick is very soft and creamy and comes in a matte finish which is quite different from the rest of the shu uemura's lipstick range. I'm quite impressed with this shade as it's very chic and sophisticated looking and perfect for an evening night out. The lipstick is incredibly pigmented even with just one stroke, you're able to achieve a full coverage for your lips. There is a wide selection of other shades to choose from which makes it ideal for personalising and tailoring it the outfit and accessories that you will be rocking. 

 Drawing pencil - RRP $34 in the shade Sky Blue 

You can look to draw it against your lash line or waterline which really brings out your overall look making it appear brighter. This drawing pencil is incredibly pigmented and you don't need to tug on it too much to achieve a full coverage look for your eyes. As you can see from my tried and tested images below, I looked to test the drawing line as an eyeliner and so far I am impressed with the fun sky blue shade! It really complements their plate date eye and cheek palette that I'll chat to you guys about next. You can look to jazz up your look instantly with the lovely Sky Blue shade - perfect for a night out with the girls. 

Play Date, Eye & Cheek palette - Pink Sundae - 
RRP starting from $70

Take a look at this gorgeous palette which features your eyeshadow shades and lovely blush. I tried out the shades in Pink Sundae and it's full of warm and pink tones - ideal for summer and spring. It helps you to create romantic and elegant looks which is great because I am in love with the shades in this particular palette. It also comes with a mirror which is included in the palette making it handy for travelling purposes. The only thing that I saw that this palette was missing was an eyeshadow/blush applicator for travelling. However, that's ok for me because I love to use the proper full sized brushes in order to help me create the perfect and subtle look. The shades come in a metallic and pearl texture which looks gorgeous when applied onto the eyes and face. Another interesting thing to note about the cases is that they're reusable which means you can look to refill the shades later on! Talk about this product being so handy for travelling as it's lightweight too. 

  • All of the shu uemura products mentioned in this post are currently available at the shu uemura counter at David Jones or at the shu uemura flagship store. 
  • Otherwise, you can look to purchase the shu uemura products online here



I have used all three of the shu uemura's new products from their Play Date range in order to create this romantic eye look featuring these products below: 

- Rouge Unlimited Supreme matte lipstick in shade M RD 144 
- Drawing pencil in shade Sky Blue 
- Play date eye and cheek palette - pink sundae 

Rouge Unlimited Supreme matte lipstick in shade M RD 144

I love how incredibly pigmented this vibrant red matte shade turned out on my lips. If you're looking for some colour but with no sheer or shine, be sure to check out their Rogue Unlimited Supreme matte lipstick range, I would definitely recommend these.

I don't usually wear these shades but after taking this palette on a test run, I am so in love with this romantic look.

Happy Saturday guys,

I enjoy using facial mists but when I discovered that Hylamide had recently released their Hydra-Density Mist, I just had to find out what the hype was all about!  

In December, Hylamide released their new Hydra-Density Mist which is essentially a multi-toning treatment to support water density. It delivers a whole heap of hydration for your skin and it's also very lightweight and comes in a mist formula - perfect for travelling, spraying on the go or even keeping it on your office desk. If your skin is feeling dull and dry, then by simply spritzing the Hydra-Density mist onto the face, you'll immediately feel the comforting effects of the formula working on your skin. There are no heavy layers felt from using the Hydra-Density mist as it's super lightweight which is perfect because it doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all. I've been using this mist in the morning and evenings after cleansing my face and I could really tell how my face looked glowing and much healthier. 

The Hydra-Density Mist has a higher water-retaining capacity and looks to offer a long-lasting hydration feel for the skin. It contains Purified Green tea and Grass Root which is perfect for soothing out any redness or skin irritations. Also, it has Tasmania Pepperberry which looks to incredibly minimise inflammation on the skin so that it looks calm and healthier once again. This is a suitable product to be used in the morning or evenings after cleansing your face. It will really leave a refreshing feeling for the skin as well as leaving it well toned. 

This is a wonderful mist for dull or dry skin where it will simply provide your skin with a very comforting feeling which is so perfect for summer!

Hello beauties, 

Curious to see how you can look to maintain youthful looking hair as well as styling soft and natural waves? Read more about my thoughts on these lovely TRESemme products.

Learning to style your hair takes patience, time and practice. Recently, I tried out two lovely products by the TRESemme range, one being their Wave Creating Sea Foam that's perfect for soft looking waves and the the other is their new Youth Boost, Youth Correcting Essence. Combine both of these products to achieve a more youthful and soft-flowing waves that's so perfect for a party or evening night out. 

Keen to learn more? I'll provide my full thoughts as to how I felt about both of these products right below. I hope you enjoy the read and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! xx

Image source by TRESemme


Currently as of 24th February, Priceline is having a 50% sale so that means that this is only on special for $4.49. This is the perfect sea foam for naturally, straight or wavy hair if you're wanting to re-create the soft-waves (with a natural look to them). The foam does come in the form of a mousse which means that it's easier to evenly distribute throughout your strands. The sea foam also contains sea kelp extract which is the main ingredient in helping you to achieve gorgeous natural waves. 

To use the product, I would simply apply the sea foam to my damp hair and then look to blow dry until you get that volumised effect. I found it really easy to achieve a messy hairstyle with using the Wave creating sea foam by TRESemme and no wonder this product has been used frequently on runways and models. It really helps to give you soft and natural looking waves without trying too hard! 

TRESemme Youth Boost, Youth correcting essence - RRP $14.99 

Just like how Priceline has a sale for their haircare range, you can look to pick this up for $7.49 which is a bargain. This essence is made for the hair (containing 3 times more concentrated Omega-3 and antioxidants) allowing you to achieve more of a youthful look. This was literally my first time trying out a hair essence...as the other essences that I do use would mainly be my face. I learnt that the very first signs of hair ageing is dullness, dryness and simply lacking body. I would use the hair essence overnight to ensure that the essence penetrates my hair strands well. After a few weeks of trying this product out, I could amazingly feel how soft and shiny my hair was left. It's a wonderful preparation product for if your hair is feeling dull and dry. This magical essence will transform it overnight and you only need about 3-4 drops of it. 


What are your thoughts on the above TRESemme products?

Hello beauties, 

Here is another tried and tested post which features shu uemura's new Tint in Balm
Check it out below guys...

Shu Uemura have released their new Tint In Balm which is their first ever hydrating balm that really looks to deliver a high impact and long lasting shade for your lips. I tried out the Shade 07 in Cherry Fervor - which is just one of the shades available from their range. I love this cherry and vibrant shade for the lips as it's very romantic and chic looking. The Tint In Balm is presented in a easy to hold applicator which distributes an even amount of the lip balm within a single click. There's no need to click the product too much as it does not retract, hence a single click or two is more than enough.

For the Tint in Balm itself, it's made with a rich blend of natural ingredients which is why it feels incredibly nourishing for the lips. I can also feel the balm melting onto my lips upon application which also leaves them feeling soft and lightweight. There is no dry feeling to using these lip balms and they make amazing products if you're wanting some amazing colour for your lips. They are perfect for the day and night and so I will be looking to get more shades to add to my collection. 

Overall, as I've started with one wonderful shade - it goes on the lips very well leaving them feeling moisturised. I feel that it's essential to have a well moisturising lip product because you want to feel comfortable all day long and also look great. 

The other shades include of the below: 
  • 01 - Pink Vibe 
  • 02 - Pink Power
  • 03 - Pink Hype
  • 04 - Sugar Coral 
  • 05 - Nude Therapy 
  • 06 - Cocoon Coral 
  • 07 - Cherry Fervor 
  • 08 - Orange Force 
  • 09 - Fresh orange
  • 10 - Divine Wine 

Where to purchase:

Hello beauties, 

February has gone by so quickly and over the past few weeks, I have observed some favourite brands which I thought would be so ideal for the last week of Summer. 

More below...

Here's a bunch of brands that I looked to try out in the past month ranging from Bondi Sands, Ardell, Sun Bum, Transformulas and Indeed Laboratories. These are available at your local Priceline store nationwide if you're located in Australia, otherwise I have provided the direct website where you can look to check out your nearest stockist. Here I look to share some of my favourites that I have come across that you may consider to be ideal for your self-tanning needs, skincare and even the brows.

Check out the below x 

Bondi Sands, Self Tanning Foam - Light/Medium - RRP $19.95

This self tanning foam is more suited to those trying to achieve a light and medium tan. It smells fresh and has been enriched with Aloe vera and Coconut which definitely reminds me of being on an exotic island. This particular tanning foam doesn't leave any streaking which is wonderful and it leaves your skin looking more evenly toned. If there's one aspect that I'd say is my favourite about the self tanning foam, it has to be its scent! (and of course the overall even tan coverage that you can look to achieve). 

Available at https://www.bondisands.com.au/ or at Priceline stores. 

Reusable Self Tan application mitt - RRP $9.95

This self tan application mitt has apparently been improved from its previous version. It allows you to achieve a smooth and flawless tan which leaves your hands looking stain-free. The best thing about using this mitt is that it's reusable and washable, meaning that you can use it for the next time. (No need to repurchase another one as yet). I love how the mitt feels plush soft and just makes my self-tan go on more easily. 

Available at https://www.bondisands.com.au/ or at Priceline stores. 

SunBum Moisturising Lip Balm SPF15+ RRP $4.99 

There's something about these SunBum moisturising lip balms as I feel that they're incredibly fun and nourishing for the lips. As they come with SPF15+ of sun protection, it's the perfect lip protection for summer. There's also the added aloe vera and and vitamin E which look to protect the lips from further dryness. As I tried out the Mango flavour, it's freshly and fruity scented which makes the lip balm more likeable.

Available at the official SunBum online store or at Priceline stores here. 

Transformulas, Mid-Life Marine Miracle Creme 
- RRP $69

This product has been described as a "face-lift" in a jar by The Daily Mail...so you can imagine what this product can potentially offer to your skin. It's full of rich potassium, vitamins, minerals and nutrients which look to reduce ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and more. The creme also looks to firm and tighten the skin with gradual use which means that you'll be left with a more refined and healthier complexion if that's what you're seeking. 

Available at Priceline stores or online here

Ardell Pro Brow Defining Kit
 - RRP $19.99 

This is a nice brow defining kit by Ardell (suitable for beginners) to have if you're after the whole brow package. It comes with a brow defining palette, wax grooming pencil (plus sharpener) and a duo brow brush which is so handy whenever you're on the go. The brow powders contain such flattering shades designed to bring out and highlight your brows. The only element that is missing from this kit is a mirror...but of course you could easily just bring along your favourite mirror if you're travelling. 

Available at Priceline or for more information check the official Ardell page. 

Indeed Laboratories, Fillume Volumising serum - RRP $34.99 

So essentially you'll be using this volumising serum if you lack the moisture, firmness and elasticity for your skin. This product uses a multi-peptide formula to really improve the signs of ageing. The serum works to stimulate your collagen production so that your complexion looks healthier and more radiant in its appearance. 

I found that after using the Fillume Volumising serum that it left my skin feeling more firm, supple and I could see that my elasticity has definitely improved. The texture of your skin should also look smoother! Ideally, you can switch thing up and use this as a primer base underneath your sunscreen, foundations and other creams. 

The texture of the product is of a silicone type and doesn't smell harsh or strong at all. It's great to be used during the day as well as during the night. 

Available at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse or via their official Indeed Labs website here. 


So there you have it with my February Favourites. 

Let me know on what you think of all the products I have mentioned, love or loathe?

Hello everyone,

Aside from all things beauty, maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle is so important. I've never tried out a food program before so I thought to myself why not? I was amazed by how Eat Fit Food delivers their food fresh and what better way to start a 5 day cleanse for 2017...More below! 

I was surprised by the quality of food that was brought to my door step during the 5 Day cleanse I undertook by Eat Fit Food which are located in Sydney, Australia. In fact the meals were so delicious that I would highly recommend Eat Fit Food as they offer many programs to suit everyone's preferences.

The 5 Day meal cleanse program is ideal for those who don't have the time to dish out meals every single day or you're keen on kick starting your system with an all-inclusive program that is free of wheat, gluten, dairy and red meat. It's the perfect option if you're even working late nights or simply don't have the time to create a healthy eating plan. It's also about clearing out the toxins in your body and looking to focus on your energy levels. 

So basically in the meal plan includes a cleansing juice, breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two bonus snacks that are delivered to your door step or work place on the Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. To give you summary of the total calories contained in each meal per day, it is only 1400 calories. So as long as you look to balance a healthy meal plan as well as staying active, then you're on the way of looking to maintain a healthier lifestyle. 

After the 5 Day cleanse, I could definitely sense that my toxins have been cleared out which could've been accumulated from the build of chemicals over time. Having a diet that's packed with nutrients will no doubt leave you feeling healthier and active again. 

There are certainly benefits that you can possibly gain from the 5 day cleanse which includes of the below: 
  • Looks to remove the toxins from your body,
  • Aids with weight loss by consuming lower calorie meals, 
  • The meals are tasty and delicious, 
  • Helps to strengthen your immune system,
  • Looks to increase you energy levels,
  • Improves your sleep quality,
  • Suitable for vegetarians
  • Reduced sugar food cravings

Furthermore, if you wanted to hear more about Eat Fit Food if you're not familiar with it, they look to deliver fresh, healthy and wholefood meals and snacks to your doorstep or work. The meals all come in a secured cooler bag (with freezer blocks) to help keep your meals fresh. The menus are remarkably amazing and you wouldn't believe that they contain just 1400 calories. For the 5 Day Meal cleanse that I have recently undertaken, I've felt healthier and more energised. And what's great about Eat Fit Food is that their meals are free of preservatives, artificial sweeteners, additives and chemicals. Another fact is that a portion of the produce are grown at the Eat Fit Farm which means that some of the ingredients sourced are fresh and delicious. 

Overall, I've quite enjoyed the 5 Day Meal cleanse (which starts from $375). I feel that the program sets out a delicious and healthy meal plan over the span of 5 days which is convenient for those with a busy lifestyle trying to keep healthy. Sometimes it can be challenging to juggle making healthy meals on a day to day basis, but with the Eat Fit Food program, it's a great kick-start program to empower and motivate you on what particular foods you should be eating in order to lose weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle. 

  • The 5 Day cleanse starts from $375, 
  • You can find out about more information at the official website of Eat Fit Food

Day 1 + 2

I received the Days 1 and 2 meals together on the Monday which really kick-started my healthy eating habits. There was breakfast (scrambled eggs and hash brown), as well as some healthy lunch and dinner options that consisted of steamed greens, brown rice, beans in a tasty tomato based sauce, barramundi and some tasty snacks to keep me going for the day. They also included a fresh juice which is perfect for a cleanse! 


Day 3

For Day 3, there was a delicious quinoa patty on a bed of cous cous and green beans which tasted AMAZING! They also provided some delicious vegetable sticks with a healthy dip along with other food options to keep my energy levels up. 


Day 4

By Day 4, I could really feel a better difference with my body. As I am eating healthier, I could definitely note that I had more energy levels. The food options on Day 4 were very healthy and I would say that my favourite were the protein balls (which are a delightful snack) as well as the simple omelette and greens. 


Day 5 

And last but not least, the very last day meant that I was finishing up on my 5 Day Cleanse. It ended on a good note and by then, I was super impressed with the different meals that I had received daily. As well as the snacks, drinks and fruit that were also included in the meals, it was truly a life saver to know that I didn't have to reach for a chocolate bar. The options on the menu are definitely chef-worthy and for a decent meal plan, I would so highly recommend for you guys to give it a go if you're interested in keeping in shape and being active! 


So there you have it guys - a detailed diary of my 5 Day Meal Cleanse by Eat Fit Food. 

What did you guys think? 

The food looks amazing right?
