I read this article on :The Age" website.

It makes me really happy to tell you that I have never and never will use Bismuth in my makeup.

Mineral foundation - make-up often advertised as being a natural alternative to other applications - contains many of the same chemicals as liquid and powder options, consumer group Choice says.

Choice tested 14 mineral foundations and found 10 contained bismuth oxychloride, which is a by-product of lead, tin and copper refining.

There were 21 cases of skin irritation and 11 cases of eye irritation during the trial, its report says.

"Mineral foundations are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame right now - despite having been around since the 1970s - and are marketed as being better for the skin than regular foundations," Choice spokeswoman Elise Davidson said in a statement on Thursday.

"But really, they're just an alternative to liquid or powder foundation, with most of the mineral foundations containing the same sort of ingredients as any other make-up base.

"Most are certainly not any more natural or pure than the alternatives."

What a day!

What a huge storm it was that hit Perth yesterday!
It knocked our lovely tree down.
This was a beautiful Chinese Elm that all the little birds used to take sanctuary from the bigger predatory birds. So sad that it is gone.

The cutest little coffee shop and knitting too!.......

I took my Mum to the doctor the other day and I was starving so we called into a little place in Grantham Street in Wembley called Woolly Latte's.

What a perfect little place!

Great food

Ladies sitting drinking coffee and knitting.


                                I had the Bruschetta and my Mum had a salad and the food was scrumptious.

My new eye Gel colours and I am giving some of them away

Watch this blog! I have lots of new Gel eye colours coming and I will be giving some away in the very near future!

These are awesome!

Free recipe..Lavender bath soak

Who doesn't love a nice warm bath filled with beautiful lavender soak?

Here is a gorgeous recipe to pamper yourself and relax after a hard day.....


1 cup milk

5 tablespoons baking soda

1-2 tablespoons honey

5 drops lavender essential oil

handful lavender leaves and flowers (optional)

Place the milk in a bowl. Add the baking soda and stir to combine. Add the honey and stir to dissolve.

Add the essential oil last and mix. Some people don't like herbs and flowers floating around the tub so these are optional.

Let the mixture sit for a minute or two for the lavender scent to permeate the mixture, then add to a nice warm bath. Grab a glass of wine, a magazine, lock the door, some music to drown out the world helps, and relax!

This recipe is enough for a normal-sized tub. You can double it for a larger spa-type bath tub but be careful not to add more essential oils. Five drops is enough for just about any size bath.

My new Pomegranate Facial oil

I love my new facial oil. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now, and a lot of the sun damage that I have sustained from covering myself in baby oil and laying in the sun on Scarborough Beach for hours (shudder) is improving like I cannot believe. Pomegranate oil is going to prove to be the very best thing in skin care. I have included some info I found

What makes Pomegranate Seed Oil so beneficial? First, it is high in antioxidants (such as polyphenol) which fight free radicals and promote skin regeneration.

It is also high in lipids, including the rare Pucinic Acid, which help heal inflammation and reduce swelling.

It has been found to nourish and moisturize the skin, improving elasticity, reducing wrinkles and preventing aging. It has also been shown to help sunburned and ultraviolet damaged skin.

Evidence suggests that its calming and healing properties may aid treatment of numerous skin problems, including dry, irritated sensitive skin, and perhaps even eczema and psoriasis.

Is there any wonder that high end cosmetic and skincare product designers are including Pomegranate Oil in their anti-aging creams and lotions?

This really is a product you want to try, please have a look at it, 100% organic and gorgeous

Amazing Hair Treatments

At last, a hair treatment that actually stops hair falling out!!!

This is truly amazing. My hairdresser was despairing of my hair, and I have been hating it all my life.

I really was concerned that it would all fall out.

After lots of researching, I have made what I think is the most incredible product on the planet for hair loss.

And it doesn't cost a million dollars!

My hair has stopped falling out since I have been using it (3 weeks twice a week) and the bathroom is no longer covered in hair, my velcro rollers come out without being covered in my hair and it is all shiny and I am really loving it!

Honestly, if you have hair that is shedding or your locks just need a good overhaul, I promise you will love this product!

You can find it on my site and you will be singing "Oh Happy Day" after you have used it for a while!
