…And I’m back

Busy doesn’t even start to explain how I’ve been.

My girls are both now at school, I’ve been busy working (but not writing), running all over town for various things, family emergencies being dealt with, school committee meetings, plus getting ready for my market this weekend.

I’m exhausted! I’m running on adrenaline and coffee. But I persist. Good lord, I persist!

I’m so excited for my first market this Sunday! If you’re in Melbourne, come on down and check out all the new and preloved sized 16+ clothing and accessories from the stall holders at the A Plus Market and don’t forget to come by and see me and say hi! 10am to 2pm, Coburg Town Hall. Be there!

I recently ran a poll in my facebook group with the option of selecting a decade to do a makeover look from the 1920s to the 2000s. The 1950s narrowly won. Not so secretly, I’m glad it won because it’s my favourite look. I created the look live based on Elizabeth Taylor’s signature look. I’ll be running another poll again but have a feeling the 60s or 70s will be wanted. I’m down with that!

I’m powering through my 58 SeneBlends certification makeovers and loving it! I did 4 in one afternoon! It was so much fun!
Yes, 58 makeovers, well, technically, it’s 58 different techniques I have to practice! Once again, if you are in Melbourne, I need your face! Get a couple of girlfriends together, your sister, mum, cousin, whatever, and let’s have some fun! Contact me and let’s book you in.

I have many plans for the year ahead, so much to look forward to and work towards, goals to achieve. A lot of work on personal development, overcoming anxieties and the like to be done, starting immediately. I need to get out of my own way and get to work.
And I need to stop biting my nails. Ew. Stupid anxiety.

I’ll endeavour to post more regularly, even if they’re quick posts with product updates and such! Got to keep y’all in the know, I’ve been neglecting you and for that I am sorry.

I’m sorry

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 😳

Lash growth after 4 weeks of using VolumeIntense waterproof mascara

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

Musings for 2019

A new year, a fabulous you.

You don’t have to be a “new” you.

“Oh, I should lose weight, eat this – not that, join a gym, swear less.” If you do want to do those things; great! Go for it.

But just be your fabulous self. You don’t have to change! Do things that make you invest in yourself! We don’t do enough of that. Take that relaxing bath, have that wine, take that course you’ve been meaning to! Fill your cup!

I aim to do more personal development work, to be a better me if I want to grow more. I’ll do things that fill my cup so I can be a better person all round, hopefully without making people puke at my positivity 😆

What will you do to fill your cup in 2019?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

“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!
