To me, blogging is all about talking about your favourite things and what you are most passionate about. As you have seen so far, I am a lover of skincare and using natural products to enhance your outer beauty. Since moving to the country, I have met a lady that makes her OWN skincare range, which I have previously mentioned but only mentioned it a little bit. I love women who are creative in what they do, and Kirsty does just that! She has been a Beauty Therapist for 20 years, so she knows what she is doing!

Follow her company at:

Beauty Bus

She does waxing, facials, tinting, massage, manicures and pedicures for those who are in Merredin, Tammin, Cunderdin and the rest of the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia. Follow her Facebook page if you would like to make an appointment for that Deluxe Facial or massage you have been dying for! I want to try the Hot Stone Massage!!!! She also does Microdermabrasion Facials which has a lot included such as exfoliation, steam, microdermabrasion, head neck and shoulder massage, cooling mask, tone, Vitamin C Serum and moisturise.

I recently tried her Mineral Clay Mask which was just heavenly after it is rinsed! It dries up really well, and you leave on for about 10-20 minutes, and scrub off with warm water and a flannel. It comes in a powder form as per below, so you just put a few drips of water in and voila, let the magic do it itself!!! It has natural herbs in it, and there are different types, for normal skin to combination, and oily skin and it is ONLY $25. This is on my “TO BUY” list.

Here is the “Enter the Sandman bath soak” which is $20, and the “Dead Sea Float” is $35. – They are both for muscle and joint aches and to also help you sleep which has relaxing essential oils. I am in need of this after a work out at the gym, especially after using a Jari Love fitness DVD! It really works your thighs! I feel like I need this now!!! Both these products (when used together) will soothe your body and leave you floating on a cloud!!

Pure Magnesium oil – to replace the salts you have lost from exercise and help prevent cramping.

Pain Relief Butter – for muscle pain and inflammation

Ease a Cramp lotion – to prevent and ease cramps.

Owie stick – to help relieve any blisters, cuts, bruises, insect bites, etc

Sassy Detox Oil – Helps detox away cellulite and tone the skin, which I am in NEED of!

I also love the look of this Luxe Nights package. It is a total “pampering session” in one little box! and is also on my “TO BUY” list. I’ve always known that I want the package with the “milk bottle”! and the powder fluff with the blue ribbon….

My Mary Kay Blog


Mary-Kay-Logo-03

I am a Mary Kay fanatic, and I have been using the skincare and makeup for about several years. I was a consultant for a little while when I was 23-24, but never got around to hosting classes. I gained a lot of knowledge and absolutely loved the $5 book on how Mary Kay started her company. It was very inspirational. I still have the TimeWise collection for the face but don’t use it as often, as I keep to my daily ritual of Neutrogena cleanser and Sukin moisturiser, and it seems to be working for me! I like how Mary Kay likes to “THINK PINK“. I collected so much stuff from applying as a consultant, and LOVED all of the makeup. I used a lot of things as gifts as well and adored the packaging.

MARY KAY BOOK

With the products I used, I used a lot of pinks and browns as I always wanted to create a “natural day wear” look. I don’t know about you, but I love those two colours the MOST! Here is attached the CURRENT Catalogue of Mary Kay where you can explore what’s in at the moment with their makeup.

9-DAY BEAUTY PROGRAM


the-mind-beauty-connection

At the moment my bible is “The mind-beauty connection” by Amy Wechsler. It is a guide to reduce stress in your life, to make you look young, and feel more beautiful than ever before. I borrowed it from the library, but if you want to buy it, go here.

The best chapter is Chapter 4, which is a program that runs for nine days. There are 5 types of stress profiles. Each profile has a tailor made program to suit your individual needs.

I chose profile 5 because I have gotten back into the habit of biting my nails, and need to create new habits.

The following is an example of a nine-day program you can choose from:

Day One:

SIMPLIFY

Out with the old, in with the new. Toss out all old skincare products, and start a fresh with a gentle facial cleanser, daily moisturizer and night cream. Refer to my blog, “How to be a lady – Personal grooming” or “3 Step pampering session” for a daily grooming routine. The book also has examples of skincare products such as Dove, Aveeno and Clinique, etc.

You need to establish a regular sleep schedule. Simplifying your bed and beauty routine is easy. It says that it is best to wash your face twice a day, once in the morning when you get up, and just before bedtime. I try to do this religiously but sometimes am lazy. 4 to 6 hours before bed, don’t drink ANY caffeine. Have dinner early, and turn off the TV and all electronics about an hour to half an hour before bed. The light stimulates the brain, and can keep you awake. Dim the bedroom lights and have warm milk or chamomile tea just before bedtime. You will feel refreshed in the morning.

Day Two:

RELAX

Establish daily breathing exercises. A five-minute breathing exercise can help keep cortisol levels in check and psychologically prepare you for the day. Google some breathing exercises. There are plenty to choose from!!!

Safflower Oil. Olive Oil can also be a substitute for putting on your body.

Day Three:

Step out into nature. Make it a goal to get outdoors for twenty minutes everyday. Walking in nature can be extremely therapeutic.

Have a milk bath. Use Bee Naturals, Queen Bee Milk Bath. Try Honey Sugar Scrub right before doing it.

MILK BATH

Day Four:

EAT CLEAN

Avoid fast food and processed foods. Drink water or green tea throughout the day. I have started drinking T2 Indian Spice. It feels like it really cleanses the insides of my body. Check out the range on the T2 WEBSITE!!!!

Honey Mask. Honey is a natural humectant. My friend Kirsty of The Beauty Bus makes a honey mask, and I will upload the recipe in the next blog. 🙂

Day Five:

GET ACTIVE

Schedule 30 minutes of exercise daily. You should engage in physical activity at least three times a week to get your heart rate up. Borrow exercise DVD’s from the local library.

Manicure/Pedicure.

manucure

Day Six:

FOSTER FRIENDSHIPS

Plan a dinner with family and friends. Your social life is important. If you love to cook, invite your friends over for a delicious meal or go out to a favourite restaurant.

Day Seven:

PAMPER YOURSELF

Learn to meditate. I’m a spiritual person, and I believe whatever you read or listen to affects your brain. Put on some classical music to unwind, or your favourite slow music.

Spa Treatment. Save up for a girl’s day out to a DAY SPA. They are expensive, but you won’t regret it. Or just sprinkle Divine Calm Serenity Milk Bath Powder in the bath, and light some candles, and create your OWN spa treatment. Check out RED BALLOON‘s DEALS.

Day Eight:

SLEEP-IN BEAUTY

Sleep in or try napping. Naps can improve heart function, and repairs cells to help you live longer.

Exfoliate. Buy a body exfoliation such as Goddess Body Exfoliator for $20, or try making one. I will put a recipe for this in the next blog as well to help save you money.

Day Nine:

REFLECT

Reflect on your week. Do you feel physically and emotionally better than last week?

Back to basics. Get back to “Day One” and read the book I recommended. If you read Chapter 5 and 6, it has everything to do with the skin, and will leave you feeling your BEST ever!!!!

Enjoy reading!!!
