My Top 10 Beauty Uses for Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is life! It’s become essential in our household, my Hubby and Hero are clearly addicted as well and now we feel as if we can’t live without it. It is also the first thing we pack when going on holiday. I say this because we just got back from a little trip to the coast and it came in handy in so many ways, especially considering we were traveling with our little one.  First off as anyone who’s travelled with an infant knows, the amount of stuff in your baggage pretty much doubles so finding a way to save space is essential. So now, Instead of packing...

Miss Angelsmile Collaboration

When was the last time you went out of your comfort zone and when you did, how did it feel? As a creative going out of your comfort zone is imperative to the flow of new ideas. And not only as a creative but as a person in general. We need to be uncomfortable to grow, we need to be challenged to innovate. But the truth is that we don’t often get the opportunity to use our imagination to create something new. We get bogged down with paying work and the day to day running of things. We follow briefs from clients or cater to their preference...

My Skincare Routine: The Last Year of my Twenties

It’s my birthday!!! And as I celebrate and think on the last year of my twenties I’m taking stock of lots of things including my skincare routine and trying to do everything I can to look after my skin in the right way. The twenties are a time of experimentation, mistakes, adventures and staying up too late. And although it’s been fun, I’m so ready to wind them down and focus on finding a renewed sense of confidence, drive and  stability especially as I build a family and embrace my role as a wife and mother.  They say in our late twenties we begin to see the early...

Balancing Who I Love With What I Love

Finding a good balance in life is an exhausting, never-ending challenge and finding the “mommy balance” takes that challenge to a whole new level. As I write this I’m nursing baby Hero, while eating breakfast, while putting a load of diapers in the laundry (Yes, I’m cloth diapering), all the while trying not to drop granola on her head. :) I’m constantly trying to find the balance between giving her my undivided attention, multitasking to complete all my new chores and getting to work on time for my first client. (That’s right, I’m back to work) I had to figure out that this elusive ‘balance’ is in-fact not...

Wet Look Hair

In this post I want to highlight a hair trend from my previous blog post, My 2018 Beauty Forecast. Wet look hair! It’s a celebrity trend that’s been made popular on Instagram and the red carpet by Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez and many others. If you haven’t tried this look before it’s really beautiful, sexy and definitely worth a try. It’s a bit daunting to think of stepping out with damp hair and wondering what’s going to happen once it dries and starts to do its own thing (As hair often does). But, it’s all about products. If you use the right tools you will get amazing results. I used...

My 2018 Beauty Forecast

My 2018 Beauty Forecast I know we’re already well into 2018 but with all the happenings in my family life (Yes, I had a happy and healthy baby girl) Its taken me a while to get back in gear. A new year brings with it a chance to reinvent yourself, reintroduce healthy practices and kick poor habits, and, like cleaning out your closet or decluttering your makeup bag it’s out with the old and in with the new. I’ve been scouring the social media accounts and blogs of creators and influences who inspire me in order to refresh my outlook and stay up to date with the latest...
