Leaving the house today without moisturising made us think that during summer this would NEVER happen (possibly because our legs etc are constantly on show). It is just as important to take care of your skin during winter, keeping it hydrated and looking subtle. The last thing you want is for winter to be over and realising you have dry, rough skin to repair for spring!
One of our favourite beauty products that we cannot get enough of at the moment is ‘DermaVeen Everyday Moisturising Lotion’. This product is ideal for dry, itchy or sensitive skin which makes it perfect for people who suffer from eczema. What we love most about this product is that it is made from all natural ingredients and is safe to use all over the body including the face! We’ll often use it on our face over night and use a lighter moisturiser during the day.
Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring, be sure to take care of the skin you’re in!

We were told about this place by a friend and had to share (we’re still yet to try but heard it’s a must)!
Don’t be mislead, this isn’t your average burger joint! Anything but average with their 100% Wagyu beef patties and the large selection of Australian, independent craft beers on tap. You can order take away but it is said that you must dine in to get the full experience.

The recent Met Gala themed ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ definitely brought out a little punk in all who attended! The thing that most caught our eye (other than Ashley Olsen’s overlay and Kim Kardashian’s floral EVERYTHING) were the NAILS!!! Sooooo much detail, so much drama. The attention was clearly on the tip.
Now that’s what you call artwork!
