{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Finding the RealYou

There is not much else in life more important to your body than good skincare. 

Gorgeous Natalie runs Realyou.au,  as an independent consultant for Rodan & Fields (R&F) Skincare. R&F is a Dermatologist grade anti-aging skincare range that helps your skin unlike anything else. 

Bookmark it in, because Realyou.au is the only contact your skin will need from now, until, well forever! R&F has been available in Australia for about 14 months and is already smashing the beauty market. 

R&F was founded by world renowned dermatologists Dr Katie Rodan and Dr Kathy Fields and is based on science to ensure you get the best skin of your life. In fact, R&F is so popular it was voted #1 skincare brand in the US in 2016 and remains the fastest growing skincare brand in the US! 

What sets Realyou.au apart is that it is sold directly to you through your personal consultant. My favourite part of this is that I can have products personally delivered to my door within only a couple of days! 

I think like most people, I am always nervous trying new skincare, but once I heard about the 60 day satisfaction guarantee I realised there was absolutely nothing to lose.  

You only get one skin so you may as well love the one your in. Get in contact with Realyou.au today:

{Mother’s Day} Gift guide 2018

It’s only a couple of weeks away until the best day of the year… that is YOU-HAVE-TO-BE-MUMS-SLAVE-DAY otherwise known by Hallmark as Mother’s Day!

I have taken the time to find some goodies so that all you have to do is share this post with your nearest and dearest so they know what to get you.

OR

If you’re like me – I am more likely to just buy what you want then wrap it and tell the bambinos to pass it to me mother’s day morning.

Here are our top Mother’s Day ideas:

Gift Voucher from Pop-Up Succulent Shop

Renelle from Pop-Up Succulent Shop is an absolute delight and any mum who loves a little gardening would love a voucher (or gift) for some succulent goodies! I have recently been to a Kokedama workshop class and it was amazing (you can read about it here -> The Central Nest Succulent Workshop).

How To Cook Everything A3 Print from Hard To Find.

This is a great print for a mama in your life who likes to cook (or eat). It would also be a great gift for someone who you might not know quite as well, such as the mother-in-law.

It’s funky, informative and pretty as a picture!

Spa Voucher from Macquarie Medi Spa

My absolute favourite indulgence is to have a facial. It’s not only relaxing but also you can literally see results straight away.

Good skin care really do care!

Robert Gordon Hug Me Mug & Saucer from Bake, Table & Tea

These gorgeous mugs are exactly what an sleep deprived mamabear desperately needs. What’s more to love than a cuppa who you can hug?

We will take one if each colour please!

mug

A Photography voucher from Jennifer Stocks Photography or Aimee Cook Photography

There is nothing truer than the fact that photos steal moments in time and paying for a professional photographer to capture your special moments is the most wonderful thing you can do.

A pic on the Iphone does not even compare to the moments captured through the lens of a talented photographer.

If you’re interested in outdoor, fun, fresh photography then look no further than Jennifer Stocks Photography. She has an eye for detail that is unparalleled.

For studio shots we cannot recommend Aimee Cook Photography highly enough, she is fantastic at seeking out those moments-between-the-moments.

Earrings from Plastic Cactus

If the mum in your life likes a pop of colour you need to have a look at Plastic Cactus! Funky, show stopping fun. I personally love the ‘rad’ ones and the wooden fruit varieties! SO bloody cute.

plastic

A bunch of glorious blooms from Ivory Rose Botanicals

If all else fails I don’t know a mama that doesn’t love flowers. Ivory Rose is next level and will help build you that something special to show your mum just how much you adore her.

Whatever your gift, make sure you add a handwritten note and your mama’s heart will be filled. At the end of the day – just let your mama know she is loved.

Happy mother’s day to all the mamas xx

 

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Macquarie Spoils this year

There are a few local businesses that have been around since the beginning of the blog and have always been involved and supportive. One of the biggest supporters I have had is Karla and the beautiful team from Macquarie Medi Spa.IMG_2219

Macquarie Medi Spa are the queens at pampering. I cannot tell you how many times I come out of one of their spas feelings a million bucks better than when I walked in.

What I love most is that they are really informative without being pushy. They have their fingers on the pulse of the latest trends and movements in beauty and bring that to our local area in an approachable and affordable way.

Macquarie Medi Spa have won a bunch of awards including the very prestigious Oceania Spa Manager in 2016. They have also been named Bathurst Business of the Year twice and been a nominee of the World Luxury Spa Awards.  ST-about-2

Macquarie Medi Spa is your local beauty spa with two beautiful locations in Bathurst and in Orange. The Orange spa even offers the very fun LipLab where you can create your own personalised lipstick and foundation. I have done this a couple of times and it is the best way to spend some time with your favourite girls.

One of the first services offered by  Macquarie Medi Spa is their Laser Hair removal, it means far less hair and that is certainly a winner in my books (just ask my lip!). These machines are massively expensive but  Macquarie Medi Spa wants the best for their clients so is even bringing another one to Orange! ST-Facial-treatments

If you want to feel like the most beautiful version of yourself make sure you give Karla and the girls at Macquarie Medi Spa a call today:

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Beyond the beauty of Christmas

12573662_1151051488261687_230988460666569004_nI feel like I go all year without going out and then as the Christmas Season rolls around there are a million things on every single weekend.

Offering everything from waxing to massages. Hair design to cosmetic injections they are the leaders of the pack. I can speak from personal experience when I say it is super convenient being able to have your eyebrows waxed while waiting on your hair colour to set. It is literally a one-stop beauty shop.

Above all I highly recommend their goddess facials – they are without a doubt one of the most relaxing and rejuvenating experiences you will ever undergo.

If you need to feel a little more relaxed and far more beautiful than call the girls at Beauty Beyond today!
