It me

So I’ve been up to a bit of late and I’m not slowing down! This is a good thing.

I’ve met some lovely people through the market I did late February. I plan to return to the A Plus Market in May!

I’ve been doing makeovers on others and myself. I completed a challenge for a 70s glam rock Debbie Harry inspired look as voted by my Facebook group.

I did this live which is a challenge in and of itself!

I then followed up with a more French inspired look for the school fair committee meeting I had that evening haha

More about the school fair later.

I recently got my new glasses that I really need to wear around the house, especially when reading and writing. Thank you to the lovelies at Oscar Wylee for their help.

I had a much needed haircut with my awesome stylist. She was incredibly patient as I had to bring my girls with me, making it the least relaxing appointment I’ve had for a very long time!

I’ve been selfie heavy of late…really when am I not selfie heavy? But I’ve been feeling fierce! Bright colours, reflecting how I feel. That’s what I love about makeup!

My daughters see my confidence and this gives them confidence, so I keep it up and keep it going. I do this for them. They are my life. But I also so them it’s okay to cry, to have emotions. To be human. We work together and work through it if something is troubling them.

I was inspired by Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and her eye makeup on the cover of EW. So 90s I love it! I will probably take my girls to see Captain Marvel after I see it this week. If I can squeeze in the time.

I am almost completely booked up for March. I have a demo, makeovers, a fete, and more. I can fit more in I think but I mustn’t forget to take time for myself.

Detox and moisturizing mask time!

April is shaping up to be a huge month with the SeneGence 20th anniversary seminar in Brisbane that I’ll be attending. To say I’m excited is an understatement 😆 My favourite speaker/coach is coming from the USA and I’m beside myself!

There are dresses to try on today which will be fun, coffee to consume, and more to plan and do.

Till next time 💋

The real thing

*stretches hands*

I’ve been knocking out knitting projects left and right between coffees. And I drink a lot of coffee!

My in-laws are the recipients of these squishy socks.

Back to my first sweater for myself before I knock out another present.

🎶 Regrets, I’ve had a few

But then again, too few to mention🎶

Well this one is about how I didn’t take a before pic of my eyelashes before starting the LashSense VolumeIntense mascara. FOOL! 🤦🏻‍♀️

If you didn’t already know, this mascara is the real deal:

▪️Waterproof

▪️Tear proof

▪️Sweat proof

▪️Transfer proof

▪️Thickens lashes

▪️Lengthens lashes

No panda eyes here (no offense to pandas 🐼).

And the non waterproof mascara is humidity resistant 😅

Oh! and throw away your lash curler! Because this product curls your lashes for you 😱😱😱

Though best of all is that your lashes will grow 46% in 4 weeks…wait…what?!

Yes. And I can absolutely attest to that. The ingredients in the mascara will grow your lashes.

Hands down this is the best mascara I have ever used. And I’ve used other high end mascaras with bold claims without naming names 😳

And this is why I’ll never forget to take a before pic ever again.

Nothing to sneeze at

Worst. Cold. Ever.

I haven’t had a cold knock me about so much as this one has.

And my poor nose copped the brunt of it, even with soothing and soft tissues.

Enter Climate Control.

It rescued my nose from being dried out and raw from the constant use of tissues.

I wrote a short piece on Climate Control not long ago about why it’s hydration in its purest form and why you all need it! Have a read of Moisture On High

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need a nap!

 

 

 

 

“This ain’t your momma’s shampoo”

Greetings! Apologies for the time between posts. I’ve been flat out trying new products, knitting like a fiend, and of course, #mumlife.

In two weeks, I’ve knit up 3 cardigans and now working on a pair of socks. It’s a sickness. Beats doing drugs though!

But I digress.

There have been 4 new product releases in the past few weeks as well as a fresh, new Beauty Book.

One of the biggest releases has to be the technological breakthrough that is the HairCovery hair care system.

You’ve been looking after your skin, now it’s time to look after your hair.

The  HairCovery trio is:

  • Thickening and Volumizing Shampoo
  • Moisturizing and Shine Enhancing Conditioner
  • Strengthening and Thickening Hair Serum.

My hair, though short, is my crowning glory. I have obsessed over my hair for as long as I can remember.

I was lucky enough to score a sample of the products and tried it myself. Even though I have ridiculously thick and frizzy hair, I found it didn’t overload my hair at all.

Each product is lightweight and you only have to use a small amount of each, depending on your hair length. I used a 10 cent piece sized amount (or a dime for any Americans reading this) and found this was plenty for my short hair.

The scent of each product is divine, not overwhelming at all. It’s pleasant and fresh and even men will find this appealing.

As I mentioned, all three products are light and will not weigh your hair down. Even the conditioner.

I found that my hair dried smoother and faster than it ever has in the past. For me, this is massive. I was able to cut down on blow-drying and heat exposure to my hair. I even didn’t have to use my straightening iron as much as I usually do to smooth down my hair!

I cannot wait to use these products on both my daughter’s hair. They have unruly hair but different types of hair. My husband has “volunteered” to use HairCovery to improve the health of his scalp and hair.

Yes, HairCovery is safe to use on hair of all ages. And is safe to use on pre-treated hair, eg, chemically straightened hair.

So, why is it a breakthrough?

Your hair health starts at the root, so scalp health is vital. All products include SenePlex+ and SenePeptide to encourage a healthy scalp and voluminous, strong locks of hair. Additional volumizing ingredients and moisturizing botanicals boost shine, manageability, and thickness.

SCIENCE!

Let’s talk about:

Capixyl. It’s one of the key volumizing ingredients in each of the products and it’s comprised of a combination of ingredients which includes Red Clover extract. Capixyl improves the growth cycle of your hair by stimulating the hair follicle regeneration process to activate hair growth, as well as limiting hair loss at the follicle. It also works on enhancing your hair’s density for thicker, healthier hair. In a clinical study of Capixyl, participants experienced over 79% boost in the number of hair per square centimeters, after 4 months.

SenePlex Complex+ is the kinetic enzyme we all know and love that helps increase cellular renewal. In hair care, this helps to increase follicular activity.
SenePeptides help stimulate hair growth.

We’ve also developed and patented an ingredient to help control the sebum produced on the scalp. Defenscalp. A win for oily, dry, and flaky scalps everywhere!

The shampoo and conditioner provide proven UV colour protection for dyed hair, with Chromaveil, which for me is a huge bonus, as now I’m more inclined to dye my hair a bolder colour than dark brown.

HairCovery is:

  • Gluten-free
  • Animal by-product-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Phthalate-free
  • Sulfate-free

To use the shampoo, ensure your hair is saturated from root to tip with water and then apply the shampoo, massaging from root to ends. Rinsing thoroughly. Repeat only if necessary.
Tip: If you have a build up of products and silicones from previous hair products, a second shampoo will be necessary.

To use the conditioner, massage into wet hair from root to ends, leaving in for 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

To use the serum, apply a small amount directly to scalp on either wet or dry hair every 2-3 days. Do not rinse.

You can find the full list of ingredients and order here!

I can’t wait for y’all to use it, and of course, you have to take before and after pics and share them with me!
