7 Habits of Women with Great Skin


You have probably heard people say that someone “just has good skin”, but the truth is that behind that seemingly perfect, smooth skin is a stable, well-balanced skin routine and self-care, without which, no matter how good your genetics, you wouldn’t be able to have good skin. So, let’s see what are the seven most important steps to having a flawless skin routine.

1. Cleanse

The most important part of any skin routine is to first get rid of any impurities that have collected in your pores and on the surface of your skin during the day or while you were sleeping. Use a gentle cleanser like the Clarins cleansing milk to remove impurities without being too hard on your gentle skin.

2. Choose your cosmetics carefully

We live in the day and age when most of the things we use every day are filled with all sorts of chemicals. But for certain things, like the food we eat or the products we apply to our skin, we want to make extra sure that they’re as natural as possible, to give us the best results. Organic, all natural brands like Tammy Fender are great options and they will give you the best results, while also not hurting our planet.

3. Get enough sleep

Many of us lead active, non-stop lifestyles, and are often left having to compensate for that fact, like taking supplements because we don’t have time to eat or putting concealer on the bags under our eyes because we didn’t get enough sleep. But the truth is, there is no product in the world that can do for us all the things that a full night’s sleep can do. It will not only replenish our energy, but give our skin time to recover and rest.

4. Apply sun protection

Everyone likes to put on a tan, but if you’re not careful, you can seriously damage your skin just by being in the sun. Let’s break it down: the vitamin that you get from the sun is great – not just for your skin, but for your whole body. However, the sun is not what it used to be, and the rays are now more harmful than ever. This is why it’s extremely important to use a product with the high SPF, every single day. Use a primer like Nars multi-protect, or apply sunscreen during your makeup routine.

5. Hydrate

For glowing skin, it is crucial to be well hydrated, inside and out. Hydrated skin has more elasticity, fewer wrinkles and its own special glow. There are two main things you should do: First, drink a lot of water. The 8 cups per day are just a minimum, so make sure you carry a water bottle around with you and drink whenever you feel thirsty. Secondly, you should always be using a good hydration cream. Products like The Body Shop’s Nourishing night cream are great to put on before you go to bed, while lighter options like Estee Lauder’s Daywear is the perfect thing to apply in the morning before putting on makeup.

6. Regular treatments

Having a daily routine is important, but sometimes our skin requires extra care. Consider making it a part of your monthly or quarterly routine to go to a professional cosmetician for a treatment of your choice that will improve your skin and give it a boost. But for a more regular schedule, getting a good scrub like the Cosmedix Purity Detox scrub will allow you to exfoliate your skin more frequently. Make sure you don’t do it more than every third day, because you risk taking off too much of the top layer, and always follow the instructions on the product.

7. Healthy habits

It’s no secret that beauty comes from within, and the same goes for health. If you practice healthy habits, eat a balanced diet, drink lots of water and exercise regularly, your skin will show the glow and radiance of health. Avoid eating oily and greasy food, since it can clog your pores; and avoid dehydration to keep your skin glowing.

Of course, some skin types are prone to acne and other blemishes, but as long as you are doing everything in your power to have healthy, happy skin, you can show it off to the world and be proud of it.

Some Essential Details about the Security and Alarm Systems


One of the most important jobs one needs to do is to make sure the house has proper alarm and security system. The crime is increasing with every passing day. Thus, it is of utmost importance to make sure the home is protected properly from intruders. With the advancement of technology, the commonly used electric alarm have become backdated and can be bypassed easily.

Types of systems

Numerous advanced alarm and security system are available in the market. The common types are explained below.

Monitored Alarm System: They are enhanced and advanced versions of the local electric alarm system. They tend to have connection to the monitoring services along with the alarms. Firstly, if any unusual behavior is identified the agents call to identify whether the alert was a real one or a false alert. Here, the monitoring authorities only send the alert to the concerned persons who would come to the spot within minutes. The other things such as fire or carbon monoxide level are also monitored keeping in mind the safety of the family.

Smoke Alarm System: The smoke alarm system commonly guards against the house from any kind of fire and smoke. They usually contain hardwired or wireless smoke detectors along with strobe lights. A complete fire alarm system can also be installed, which would contain a sprinkler system, a heat detector, as well as a smoke detector.

Burglar alarm system: The most common type of alarm systems is installed in the household. It is fitted along with the doors, windows sensors, and motion detectors. If the sensors are tripped in any manner immediately, an alarm is sent, which starts a loud sound, which in turn alerts the neighborhood. They are controlled by a keypad, which is located centrally.

Medical alarm system: Here, there is an emergency button on the keypad of the home security system. Pressing the button would alert the central security organization, which would in turn inform the concerned doctors. This is absolutely a delight, especially for elderly people who stay alone.

Critical alarm system: This type of alarm system would protect the house against leaks, which usually remain undetected as long as it does not do huge damage. This type of system would protect the house from higher damage. It can monitor the plumbing and heating system when the house is empty. It would inform the concerned personals if a pipe burst or any kind of leakage occurs.

Different processes of installation

Before installation of the alarm and security system for home, it is important to be completely aware of the entire installation process. The process of installation usually depends on what type of system you prefer to install. The common installation processes are explained below.

DIY (Do it yourself) installation process: In this process, the homemaker is in full control. It is completely his decision about the devices and sensors that would be installed. Usually, these processes are simple and do not require complex wirings. It usually takes about an hour to complete the entire process. However, it is important to do a thorough research about the process so that the homemaker is not stuck in between. It is better to get in touch with the professionals if the homemaker messes in between and is not aware of the next step.

Professional installation: Here, the homemaker can relax throughout the entire process, since the experienced professionals take responsibility of the complete process. They would firstly examine the existing wiring and entire layout of the house. They would take the entire responsibility if anything goes wrong and would not be paid until they fix it completely.

10 ways to practice self-care PLUS a Book Giveaway!


When was the last time you did something JUST for yourself?

Has your daily routine been too much and you just need time to learn to relax ?

I have been longing to do this post for a very long time. Not only did someone recommend it, But I have been wanting to come up with ideas and tips for a life filled with mindfulness, peacefulness and serenity. The things that create a time for spending some “you” time. At the end of the day I almost (daily) spend some “me” time.

I get home and pop the kettle on, and just do things to let myself rejuvenate, and renew my mind so that I can sleep better and smash the next day.

The following may work for you, may not, but I have not only researched, but put together my own ideas to cultivate building-blocks of self-care. This is not just something you try and do once and then just forget and get on with a busy hectic eventful life. You need to do these things consistently if you want to have a healthy, mental and physical well-being.

Here are some tips to go by that I think will benefit you in the long haul if you’re a busy person, (Mum, Wife, Entrepeneur, Business Woman, Full-time worker):

1. Listen to classical music or any easy listening (evening) type of music!

I recommend Jackie Evancho, Andre Rieu’, Kathleen Battle, Greta Bradman, Katherine Jenkins and composers like Bach, Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Beethoven. I trained as a classical music pianist for 8 years, so classical music is my escape. That’s why I basically put it as number One! But if you don’t particularly like classical music, whatever kind of music you think is relaxing for you!

2. Book a massage 💆🏼 or an ultimate day spa in Perth. Or a Luxurious Pamper Package at a High End Day Spa. 

 

 

3.Read a novel such as Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, or an inspirational/motivational book to get even more ideas on looking after yourself.

4. Breathe – Sit on your bed (or even lay) and concentrate on your breathing. Inhale and exhale slowly, feeling and making sure you are relaxed.

5. Try a different kind of tea – Opt for herbal green, or chamomile tea is also known as a relaxant.

 

6. Another idea is to just lie on your bed for five minutes and close your eyes. Not necessarily taking a nap, although a power snooze for 5 minutes is excellent! I just think lying there and closing your eyes is a time to renew.

7. Organise a Girls Getaway to escape, relax and indulge……

8. Create your own aromatherapy without the expensive candles with Little Finch Candle and Co.

 

 

Some oils to use can be the Aromachologie Relaxing Essential Oil Blend which is only $25 through L’Occitane which is a great lavender oil to soothe yourself and create a healthier you. For some more ideas on oils visit my Doterra Party page and get an idea of what oils would be your favourite or type.

9. Make a cup of tea and pull out a chick flick! Something like “The other woman” with Cameron Diaz is a laugh! Or “How to lose a guy in 10 days” even if you’ve watched it 100 times like me! To me it is a classic! And will always be a favourite!

 

10. Be selfish. Not in the wrong way, but do that one thing today just because it makes you happy. If there’s something you’ve always wanted to do and something stopped you from pursuing it, I say, GO FOR IT! If you have that gut instinct feeling about pursuing a career, going in a different direction in life, changing courses, then, one thing I always have believed is “Trust your gut!!!!!!”

I am a firm believer in self-care, and am learning new and more ideas from other bloggers who love to post things similar.

Another idea is to have an early nights sleep. That’s always been a top tip!

Go shopping.

Priceline has a fantastic product from Essano which is a Rosehip Certified Organic Mist Toner which is enriched with Kakadu Plum and Green Tea. I only got it for $10.39.

Tonight I sprayed it on after putting on my night cream and it is just soooo soothing and refreshing. I feel it doing wonders! It’s more of a day spray to hydrate your skin but it’s still nice to spray on before bedtime.

This time I am doing a giveaway. If you comment your favourite tip and why, you will receive this delicious story of a book!

How to survive as a girl in the men’s world


featuredThere is a double standard, obviously. We have all either experienced it, or have seen it. There is a deep-set of cultural, psychological views that are manifest through this double standard… Some of these attitudes persist, and if they persist in as open, and in many ways transformational society as ours is in the 21st century, you know how deep they are.

  • Hillary Clinton

 What Mrs Hillary has so relevantly observed (see the quote above) stands strong and true as a modern-day Antigona caught in the winds of gender disputes. However, not all gender battles have to turn into wars; some of them may as well be competitive skirmishes leading into a joined future filled with tolerance, respect and love.

What needs to happen in both girls’ and boys’ worlds is that they need to become aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and instead of using them as weapons to conquer one another, they should use them to build stronger and more meaningful relationships. And, in this togetherness, they both need to put their guards down a little.

This time around, we’re talking about some key points that will help girls fit into the boys’ world (and maybe even love it in the process):

Homemaking tips to simplify your life!


What makes a happy home and a home happy?

“At the heart of any happy home is some one who is content bearing the fruit of love, joy, warmth and life in rich abundance.”

1. You are the centre of your home.

Married or single, you are the heart of your home! 

Create a sanctuary where it feels homey.

2. You are the comfort of your home.

I’ve always thought a housewife or Mum has the biggest job than anyone because your considered to be multiple things! 

3. You are the adornment of your home! 

Decorate your room with your favourite theme.

For example, I have created a “Royal” theme for my bedroom, because I have grown a fondness for the royal family, and like to keep a theme. My quilt is a Princess ivory quilt from Spotlight and when I move I will put up my three letters from the royals to keep the theme! 

Here is an example of a “Paris” themed room!!!! 

There are numbers of blogs on homemaking tips and advice!

I like the Small Notebook blog for basic tips on simplifying your home and space! 

They say “Life is more simple with less stuff” and I wish I heeded to this because my room is cluttered with books, DVDS, and magazines! Sometimes I just can’t help myself! I like to have a clean room but then again I like my STUFF!!!!! 

I need to heed to Holding onto sentimental things to understand how to simplify my things! This is a great article on choosing the right things to keep in your room. I’m sure you will love it!

I love this quote: 

Homemaking isn’t about creating the perfect space, it’s about creating a space that feels like home.

It’s about creating a peaceful haven. I just got back from Queensland, and it was so nice to be back to my OWN bed and familiar surroundings. 

It is good to keep good homemaking and organisational skills to essentially live a better life! I find that once I have vaccummed and added fresh flowers that it leaves such a great feel to the place! 

I love the idea of homemaking and creating a haven where I spend most of my time! You need to create a space where you can breathe, live and love! 

Your family would appreciate what you do in your home, and how you do things will reflect. 

I have always said, your character reflects in your bedroom”….. Or something along those lines!

Fortnum & Mason Favourites


fortnum-and-mason

 

I have come across a few favourites……. Well, ALOT actually……

I couldn’t help myself but google Fortnum and Mason today. It has been a dream the past couple of years to visit London, and enjoy a high-tea there. It is on my LIST! I haven’t visited London just yet, but I know that I will get there one day! There is something about that place, coffee shops, museums, art galleries, bookshops, and so much MORE!!!! I enjoy watching “Ladies of London” every now and then too.

Find here a number of items I found on F&M’s website – ROYAL COLLECTION

I am in LOVE with this pink mug, Halycon Days Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Mug in Pink

QUEENS 90th PINK MUG

Halycon Days is a London brand. It is an English fine bone china mug that is finished with an intricate trellis design. Featuring a wreath of golden flourishes that frames the inscription ‘In Celebration of the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 21st April 2016’, this mug makes a wonderful addition to any home.

I am LOVING the GIFT section. They have a WIDE range of Bath and Body, Skincare, Handbags and purses, fragrances, jewellery, scarfs, flowers, tea, china and silverware, and hampers! There is so much to shop!!!!

There are TWO kinds of tea that I want to buy.

Queen Anne Blend Tea

Created in 1907, this popular blend is named after the monarch who was on the throne in the year that Fortnum & Mason actually began. The smooth blend of carefully selected TGFOP Assam and Ceylon FBOP teas produces a strong, smooth tea that is refreshing at any time of day.

QUEEN ANNE BLEND TEA

 

Royal Blend Tea

This luxury tea is classic. It has ceylon and assam. It was actually first blended for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902, Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, almost honey-like flavour.

ROYAL BLEND TEA

There is also a tea towel that I absolutely ADORE!

It is ‘Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Tea Towel

This beautifully designed tea towel commemorates The Queen’s 90th in true royal fashion. Made in the UK from 100% cotton, this tea towel is finished in royal blue and features an inscription celebrating the UK’s longest reigning monarch.

QUEENS 90th TOWEL

and of course, I want to get a bag that represents……

F&M BAG

They even have a lunch box you can buy!!!!

So that’s just a few to add to my ever-growing list on what to buy. I think that when I DO get to London, I will probably need just about ten grand!!!!

Harrods and Selfridges here I come!!!! World-class shopping is EVERYTHING.

Harrods has Chanel Cosmetics such as the Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favourite CHANEL foundation.

Cosmopolitan and City


Ok. I must admit it. I felt like I was losing a bit of spark in my life,….. Or my personality…. Whichever….. I felt like the joy that I mentioned in my previous blog was actually going away. Which I DO NOT want!!!!! 
I had so much joy and excitement in Melbourne when socialising with people, that when I moved to a smaller and isolated place I felt I was becoming dull. 

Driving to Perth I was thinking about this…… Well, dwelling on it and the feeling of adventure propped up within me!!!!!! The excitement is coming back again!!! Slowly, slowly…..


A friend in Melbourne once told me that I was never too short of words…. I felt like I was losing that too and I KEEP thinking about the time she said that to me. I ask myself, am I still like that!?

Is it leaving me? I want to still be a breath of fresh air wherever I go! Whether I am storytelling or giving my life story, I want to be consistent and on a balanced level and I don’t want it to go away.

Well, I get excited when going to Perth……. Because it’s a major city. The buzz of the city life. It’s what GIVES me that buzz, and I love and enjoy talking with city people. 

Don’t get me wrong, I am starting to enjoy the country too. I like the balance of city and country. If I could choose just one, …….. It would be the city!!!!! Just the sound of trams dinging by, the rush of shopping, and going places, it’s such a thrill!!!!!! And that’s what bursts me with excitement!!!!!!! 

I miss the old GPO in Melbourne, which is now H&M and the Bourke street mall….. David Jones and Myer….. Walking down the mall or Melbourne Central in Italian Leather Boots and an Armani jacket and a pink Oroton bag….. Yep, I will always be a city girl at heart. It’s just IN me. 

I feel like I could write a novel on a city chick in Melbourne….. Something similar to Carrie Bradshaw….. Without the sex talk. I wonder what it would be like if I wrote about a Footscray girl….. Well, that would be me. I am sure I can come up with a story or two! I know all about Footscray life!!! Well, not so much anymore….. But I have a feel for the place and I feel I could come up with something definitely. Oooo a project to add to my life!!!!! 

If you ever end up being in Footscray, try Vittoria Cafe….. In the mall…. I had this dish called Salted Fish and Fried Rice, or something like that…. And I had it for lunch almost every day when I was working at Thomson Real Estate in 2013. Coffee there is good too! 

Also, try Cafe Cui…… Opposite the Footscray station….. Great new little possy!!! And they say they “bring New York to Melbourne”! 

I am sssooooo excited!!!!! Reiss will be opening up soon…. The British label and I can not tell you HOW excited I am….. Except that I’m not in Melbourne, but when I go in September this year, if it is open, it will be my FIRST stop!!!!! 

AND I will be looking for more RepliKates!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

So! What gives you a buzz!!??? What sort of things can you do to add excitement in your life!!????

Magnificent Mandurah


Arriving into Mandurah was just paradise…… It is a beach and village on the coast of WA south of Perth, Australia. Embarking on a three day journey felt like the most adventurous thing I had ever done since Port Douglas in 2013. Such a great start to the year!!!!

It was my first time EVER going on a house boat….. The boat had a name…… Abbey J….. Most boats had names and I liked the sound of “Lady Lorna”. There is a boat called “Quicksilver” with “Mandurah House Boats” which is where we hired ours from, which Quicksilver has a SPA in it!!!! I had my own bedroom and the boat was just comfy, spacious, and luxurious. We had access to television and could charge our phones. I made sure I took a book, Sophia, about a god daughter of Queen Victorias.

Sitting on deck with book in hand and a magnificent view was all I could not ask for more.

20160108-183146.jpg

20160108-183300.jpg

We packed lots of food, snacks and stopped off at cafes and restaurants within the inlet. Where we stopped over night at the Pelicans Public Jetty we fed the seagulls, I indulged over a Mango Milkshake and my sisters had fun catching crabs!!!! My mum even caught a fish!

On the third day, during the day we saw LOTS of dolphins!!!! It was ssooooo beautiful and they are such amazing creatures, they glided across the pristine water like they were the only ones there!! I was in AWE of them!!!
I took lots of photos with my Canon camera and got a few close ups……. One came RIGHT near the boat in front of me!!!!!

20160108-185948.jpg

20160108-190213.jpg

The trip was full of much excitement and fun. My sisters know how to have a ball!!

So if you’re ever considering hiring a houseboat, don’t forget Mandurah has a range of boats to choose from!!! And who wouldn’t want the one with the spa!!!

Travels in Australia


I have been travelling through the South West of Western Australia all this week and I have been absolutely loving it!!!!

I finally visited Albany where my granny lived and went to the Memorial Service with some friends…. I traveled from Merredin to Albany with a lady called Judy Middleton and we had a blast on the drive on the way to there.

When we arrived at Albany we stayed at a motel called Sleep Well. Fairly good sized rooms and we drove all over Albany. On the day of the Memorial Service I visited a church, St Johns and the step into the church was dedicated to an ancestor of mine!! Albany holds a very special place in my heart and we also went to the National Anzac Centre where Prince Charles and Camilla will visit tomorrow. Sadly, I miss them, but I’m not totally shattered as one day I may get to meet them. There is a link with my family, the Spencer’s with them apparently but I’m still finding out more and more about my heritage.

Speaking of heritage, I visited Strawberry Hill Farm where Sir Richard Spencer settled. He is an ancestor of mine also, but sadly the tourist guide didn’t know the history of him much!!!! I am going to read my granny’s book, The Way to St. Werburghs when I get a chance. There is so much to learn and I am getting more and more fascinated by the minute!!!!

20151113-163717.jpg

Walking through the gardens was just magical, and I bought a Strawberry Hill Farm brochure that talks about the history of the dwelling.

20151113-164128.jpg

The rooms were quaint and there was quite a bit to explore!!! There were old machines in another room and the dining room was just exquisite.

I totally recommend you to check out my “family home”!!! If you want to read more on the history of the Egerton-Warburtons, read the above named book that my granny, Dawn Crabb wrote. If you love history, this you will love!!!

Reflecting on life


morning-meditation

Coming back from Melbourne I have recharged myself in Merredin, Western Australia, and I can not believe I am actually liking the peace and quiet of country life!!!! I have grown up as a city girl ALL MY LIFE!!!! Maybe it’s because of ageing, and now that I am 29, life is changing, and I am constantly thinking about what’s most important. To me, family and love is important, and I think that if you are surrounded by good friends, and family, you are successful, no matter what car you drive, what you wear, or what you look like!!! Who you involve yourself with is vital, and how you become is the most important thing in life.

I am grateful that I have my Dad, and Mum, and my sister, Julia. The rest of my sisters live miles apart but I am grateful to be around my family at the moment. My Dad is the Radio Announcer for RadioWest, and the station is with Southern Cross Austereo. When I worked in South Melbourne I used to see the radio station The Fox all the time!!!

I am most thankful for my Dad getting a job in radio. it was his dream as a child, and could never be prouder to see him doing what he loves. It keeps me happy!!! If you want to tune into Radio West, download the App, and you can hear him on the Breakfast Show every morning. His name is Anthony Tilli.

PEACE

Now I can say that if you are looking for work, Australia is filled with soooo many opportunites. I have worked right across Australia, from so many different suburbs in Melbourne, and have had experience in a Workcover agency, accounting firm, electrical company, libraries, Vista Window Coverings, and the support group at the Spotlight Store. I am overwhelmingly grateful for every opportunity I have had to work in our beautiful country, and am even more grateful that I have found purpose in blogging. It has been the start to a wonderful new life for me, and especially for starting a new chapter in life!!

Right now, I am grateful for winding down in Café 56, and just letting out all my thoughts and ideas onto a blog that I am not sure how many people have read but that is NOT my goal. I just want to live life, be happy and enjoy everything life has to offer.

For those that have a busy lifestyle and live in the city, I believe meditation is crucial to keeping you healthy, and looking your absolute BEST!!!! In Melbourne, I read Miranda Kerr’s book, Treasure Yourself, and it has quotes to live by, and words that will keep you sane, and focused for a brighter future!!! Also, switch off your phone at night, put classical music on and lay still,… This will relax you and help you recharge. It’s worked for me!!!

I hope that you learn to live with immense blessing, and move forward with a new outlook on life, as I have found in Merredin.

Moving from the city to the country isn’t as bad as you think! It has its benefits!!
