Father’s Day has once again crept up on all those that celebrate it unawares. It’s time for children all over the world to celebrate their dad on the one day of the year that honours them exclusively. Read more…
It’s that time of year again. Festival-goers all over Australia are flocking to Byron Bay in New South Wales to spend the weekend frolicking in mud in a cloud of dust and glitter. Splendour in the Grass is back and, by all reports, it’s bigger than ever before. Read more…
Expanding your collection of fragrances is always exciting. There’s something indulgent about choosing a scent for any occasion- a first date, an overseas holiday, a beach trip– even something as mundane as running down to the shops. Whatever the excuse, perfume has the unique ability to change the way you feel you present yourself to the world through scent- one of the most empowering gifts you can give yourself. And, if you don’t buy fragrance for yourself, chances are, someone’s bought it for you.
It’s that time of the year again: Mother’s Day, a day to commemorate mothers all around the world and anything and everything they do for their children (that’s you). You have three choices here- you can either:
1. Forget about it completely and realise finally that Mother’s Day is in fact tomorrow and the shops have closed and the only materials you have in your house/ sharehouse/ life are pom-poms and superglue and already this is shaping up to be the most pathetic homemade DIY Mother’s Day present imaginable and you can already see the disappointment in your mother’s eyes as she opens it and pretends to be chuffed.
2. Realise it’s impending, but make no tangible effort to sort yourself out for it. This is for the kids and fathers out there who print out ‘vouchers’ for ‘hugs’ or ‘spa days’ or ‘family picnics’ that never happen. OR EVEN WORSE: those that print out a picture of something that’s coming in the mail. ‘It just hasn’t arrived yet,’ you say to Mum. This may be true, but it’s because you ordered it yesterday, not because of Australia Post.
3. OR. You can order something now! Better yet, why not order fragrance- something that women rarely buy for themselves, but appreciate it as much as if they did. We’ve done the hard yards for you and selected our top 5 fragrances popular amongst mummy dearests. You’ve still got time!
Miss Dior really is the fragrance for everybody. It’s super fresh and very feminine, and manages to be both without being too sweet. This crowd classic is sure to please even the toughest of mothers.
Narciso Rodriguez is a woody, feminine fragrance with unmatched staying power. Its adorable packaging isn’t hard to look at either, and is a gorgeous addition to any woman’s collection. The word here is MUSK, as its bottle suggests.
Stella Mccartney Eau De Parfum is the ultimate fragrance for women. This floral fragrance is luxurious, light, and summery, and wears well all year round. This one’s for the mums out there with holidays on their mind.
Body by Burberry is luxuriant, full-bodied and impossibly British. This fragrance features vanilla and florals and is perfect for any mum with a taste for the finer things in life.
Bamboo by Gucci is a scent for the modern woman. Its title shouldn’t be a red flag, however- this floral fragrance is a little more lily-fresh than it is Amazonian chic. It comes as a gift set as well- winning!
There you have it! Our failsafe recipe for a happy mother this Sunday. Enjoy a complimentary moisturiser with all purchases over $30.00!
You could throw a rock and hit a flatlay on any social media platform nowadays. They look easy enough. A lipstick here (always unused), a pair of flats there, a designer keychain artfully splayed across a shaggy rug, a sprig of rosemary thrown in for good measure. But are flatlays as easy as they look? Do you simply lay pretty accessories flat on the ground and shoot wildly with your iPhone?
They say good things come in small packages, which is why opening your stocking on Christmas morning is often where all the best goodies are found! Here’s a few ideas if you’re the one doing the stuffing…
