Valentines Day, some dread it, some love it & alot of people probably couldn’t care less. I actually personally love it!

I love flowers and gifts don’t get me wrong,

The Fragrance Edit 2017

Fragrance can often be a hard thing to purchase for someone else, most people tend to have one brand they like to stick with or some people just like to try anything that’s new on the market. One thing we can’t deny is that Fragrance really is the ultimate gift no matter what time of year it is. With that being said, I have put together another Fragrance Edit this

Hair products under $50 to help prep you for your big day

Not only is your wedding day one of the biggest days of your life, it’s also probably one of the most expensive days too! There’s so many things to do and get done prior that often, looking after the most important thing YOU is put on the back burner until last minute. One thing I think we forget about often, is looking after our hair. Stress and being run down

Protecting Your Skin With Your Summer Beauty Routine

Routine is always a great thing to have, so it only makes sense that you adapt it to the changing seasons. Sunscreen is a product that should be worn year round, but if i’m honest I’m pretty slack when it comes to the cooler months. With it currently being Spring, the days are getting warmer so I know it’s time to re think what I’m doing  in the mornings before

Grand Mercure Auckland – Review

I find myself in Auckland a lot for business trips, but the one thing I always struggle with is where to stay. A 2 night trip to Auckland can often cost me over $1000 for flights and accommodation alone, and half the time the hotels are never anything super amazing for the price your paying. On my most recent trip I had the opportunity to work with Grand Mercure, and I

The Coromandel Aka Paradise

The first stop on our North Island Wilderness campervan adventure was the beautiful Coromandel. Like many parts of the North Island this was my first time exploring this area and I absolutely fell in love. You really do feel like your in a whole different country, the scenery is like no other. Beautiful coastal towns, rolling hills and an ocean that stretches for miles, The Coromandel is full of little

VBxEsteeLauder Collection

Victoria Beckham was first apart of my life, when Spice Girls were all I listened to. I was totally that girl who had the bob haircut and the tight flared ankle black pants form HBK, with the crop turtle neck top prancing around the living room pretending I was posh spice. These days I admire her strength and determination as a business women and mother, not to mention her collaborations

YSL All Hours foundation Review

If there’s one thing I love it’s a good foundation, but I am totally that girl who always goes back to the same brand, as I’m yet to find something that compares. That was before I tried the YSL All Hours foundation, a matte full coverage formula that really does stay all day. Being a Makeup Artist I am often running around all over the place between bookings, coming in

24hrs with MAC at NZFW

That time of year has arrived again where Auckland becomes a city full of whose wearing what. New Zealand Fashion Week is where all the new trends for the coming seasons are born, so of course it makes sense to also show you what kind of beauty trends are being brought to life on the catwalk. MAC Artists are known for their incredible creativity, and of course my fave artist
