Get Your Summer Fake Bake On Point!

W/Jergens Tanning Range!

Jergens Natural Glow Color Primer
If you love your body scrubs that really get down and dirty giving your skin a that good scrubbing
feeling, then this is a product for you! This Color Primer preps your skin for tanning by really
getting in there and buffing away all that dead skin build up and creating a natural smooth surface
which helps your self tanners and gradual tanning moisturisers glide onto the skin like butter creating
an even and the most natural looking toasty glow, ever!

This amino fruit extract blend is a pretty and orange to brown in colour and has a gorgeous
 shimmer through it!

Basically Jergens have extended their product range from not only just your everyday
daily body moisturisers and gradual tanning moisturisers. Now Jergens have cleverly released two
more products for us to really get the most our of our tanning routines.

The 3 steps are. Prime, Moisturiser & Extend. That's where these products come in.

SHOP THIS! $10.99 (162ml)

Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturiser (Medium to Tan)
If you'd like to read up on my review of this product in the 'Fair to Medium' shade, then just
click here! After prepping my skin with the Jergens Color Primer, I cannot express to you enough
just how smooth this gradual tanning moisturiser just glides directly onto the skin!

The formula appears surprisingly quite light in colour considering it is a darker gradual tanner.
However it somehow works it's magic and over about a week I noticed my skin appearing a lovely
shade of summer glow. Looking warm and even all over. I have been really impressed with the
results and the gorgeous smell which is nothing at all like your regular 'fake tan' smell!

SHOP THIS! $10.99 (221ml)

Jergens Natural Glow Tan Extender
Here's a product I find most interesting! Mostly because I have never heard nor have I ever used a
Tan Extender before! This product works to help prolong the life of not only your fake tan but also
any natural tanning you may have already from the sun.

I like to apply this product in the morning before getting dressed for the day and then apply the
Jergens Daily Moisturiser at night. I have been doing this daily for more than a month now and
it seems to be a working combo whilst using the Color Primer once a week in between to keep my
tan fresh and even.

This Tan Extender feels very light and soft on the skin. It soaks in quite fast and doesn't leave any
greasy residue. There is only a very light scent about it and it seems to be keeping my tan from
fading too fast.

SHOP THIS! $12.99 (221ml)

You an check out the full range of Jergens products at your local Priceline store and online.

There are two main components I look for in skincare. Number one and most important is hydration.
Keeping your skin hydrated is key in keeping your skin looking young, supple and healthy. Number
two is anti-ageing ingredients such as Vitamin C & E, Rosehip and Caffeine.

This leads me to the newest addition to BotanicES's skincare range. Their Cleanser Cream. This
is both anti-ageing and extremely hydrating, containing both Vitamin E and Caffeine extract it
doesn't strip your skin from it's natural oils. More so in my experience I have found it to balance out
my skin's moisture levels, hydrating it deep down into the skin as well as firming it over continued
 use over the past few months with the caffeine extract used in the formula.

When used straight up first thing in the morning I have found this cleanser significantly reduces the
appearance of my puffy under eyes and I feel instantly more awake and the random red rash I get
every now and again on my neck calms down a whole lot too!

My favourite way to use this cleanser is just to add a small amount of water and massage it into my
face and remove with a warm face cloth. At the end of the day this also works as a fantastic makeup
remover. Just pump a squirt or two onto an eye makeup remover wipe and gently swipe over your
face and you should find your makeup comes off brilliantly, even tough eye makeup and those long
lasting liquid lipsticks!

For 200ml you can pick up this Cleanser Cream up conveniently from your couch directly from
BotanicES's official website. Alternatively, this brand has also just recently launched in selected
Priceline stores in Brisbane, Terry White Chemist (Indooropilly) & Braidwood Pharmacy and
retails for a current RRP $35.00 (SHOP!)

Have you used Caffeine in skincare before?

Things To Buy In 2017!

5 Trends To Follow!

-  -  -

A Practical Handbag!
A good practical handbag doesn't necessarily need to be a designer one. As long as you love it, it
has room for everything you need on a day to day basis and is of good quality, then you're onto a
winner. I only own a few handbags now a days and probably have just one I use the most day to day.

However with my birthday coming up this month it got me thinking about what do I really actually
want and need. Since my major decluttering since moving I know for sure I definitely only want
quality over quantity. Quantity is word which just haunts me now!

This bag by Michael Kors is great because it is quality, a timeless colour and a great size, plus
comes with matching purse. Seriously contemplating this, even if I need to save up to buy it myself!

Available to purchase individually HERE and HERE!

A Pair Of Designer Heels (Or 2!)
Now, there was a time when I had a hard time throwing away my shoes! I must have owned at least
thirty pairs and none of which where of any kind of decent quality. Since becoming a mum and
realising how your possessions triple with all of their stuff I knew my mindset needed to change!

After doing some research on how to de-clutter and watching videos on Youtube about minimalism,
it really helped me during the whole process. Now I only own about ten pairs and even that seems
like too many since I probably only wear 2-3 of them regularly!

In saying that I am still a bit of a fashionista and like to own nice things and that does include a
nice pair of classic designer heels. I figure if I can half my shoe collection either by donating,
selling or chucking the bad ones away then I can justify purchasing perhaps just one or two pairs of
like the ones below. Since both black and nude are classic must have colours and since I don't own
any other shoes in this style, then these are worth saving up my dollar coins for in the long run!

Bedroom Storage!
You can never have too much storage space and with Christmas just gone, with all of the extra
possessions we have accumulated during this holiday season a nice grey practical ottoman to match
the couch and dining chairs sounds like a great idea to me!

Our couch and dining chairs are already this same grey shade with the black legs so I am seriously
contemplating getting this for our lounge room area! Not only does it provide storage space for all
the kids toys which have somehow ventured from the hidden caves of their rooms into the lounge
room, therefore turning it into an instant playroom. This storage ottoman can hide all the toys away
at the end of the day and TA-DA! My lounge room is all of a sudden turned magically back into an
adult relaxation space!

Grown Up Luggage!
Admittedly, I haven't gone away anywhere on holiday in years, however I am optimistic 2017 might
be my year! I LOVE to travel and the hubster and I regularly dream of doing it more. So being
prepared doesn't seem like a bad thing to do, right?

The only luggage I currently own is an oversized handbag and not much else. I love the look of this
Samsonite luggage because it's rose gold (my favourite obsession at the moment), it's a decent,
generous size without being difficult to handle, had a combination lock and most importantly it has a
hard outer shell to keep everything protected and dry on the inside!

Also currently on sale from $849 down to $509! | CLICK TO SHOP!

Haha! How could I resist leaving this off my list? It's just too funny not too! Whoever thought of
naming this product of glittery sparkly goo completely nailed it! Unicorn Snot? Oh yes, that sounds
exactly like something I want to lather all over my body and face! lol

Because deep down we all really want to be unicorns....

My Top 5 Fashion & Beauty Tend Predictions!

(Click an image to shop these trends!)

1.) Off the shoulder fashion. Be it one shoulder or two. Baring some skin up top is going
to be huge this Summer!

2.) Ruffles and bows are back! Think girlie layers on a fitted cotton shirt tied at the side with a
statement bow. Tone down this busy trend by pairing with some classic jeans, black pants or one
coloured maxi skirt, some cut off shorts or a plain top for bows and busy bits on the bottom half!

3.) Rose gold is here to stay, as is marble, turquoise, crystal, stone and boho style jewellery,
clothing, fashion and home decor items.

4.) Eco friendly, natural skincare & makeup, vegan products, etc. These kinds of demands by
consumers is only going to grow! Here are some of my favourite brands and products that fit this
description below.

5.) Cosmetic tattooing. Forget tattooing on eyebrows, lip colour and eyeliner. That is so 2016!
The next big thing is cosmetic tattooing by reducing the appearance of stretch marks by tattooing
over them to even out the skin tone in the area and disguising their appearance! Clever!
