Self-love Beauty Gift Guide

February 6, 2019

I'm totally down with a bit of self-love-beauty-gifting. I'm worth it.

 

Now everyone's version of self-care is different and the whole act of self-care varies from woman to woman. However you choose to show yourself some love, taking the time to stop and give yourself time out is a necessary "to do" and one often not prioritised on the never-ending to-do list.

 

Whether your practice of self-care is through mental-health and being more mindful, immersing in nature, a long walk on the beach, breathtaking walk in the rainforest, or some hard-core thrash-the-credit-card retail therapy, luxurious beauty treatments, much-needed massage, inhaling substantial amounts of chocolate, indulgent body care buys, or pretty makeup splurges, I've put together a list of my top 10 self-love gift ideas... with an age-positive all natural beauty bias of course. 

 

Stop. Take a few deep breaths ... it's time to give yourself some love and what a magnificent excuse Valentines Day is ... let's go shopping

My beautiful friend and fellow true-crime-podcast-addict Gaby started this phenom business. She's a powerhouse #ladystartup and her products work to iron out any unwanted wrinkles. Now that's not to say there is anything wrong with wrinkles and crinkles .. it's all what makes us uniquely beautiful. But if you're feeling like smoother looking skin fast, in a non-invasive, perfectly safe way .. wrinkles schminkles are your new best friends.

Over 400 women have attended my makeup masterclasses, and very few women have the right brushes. And brushes really do make your makeup application a) a whole lot easier and 2) a whole lot better! So I created and curated my kit of 5 essential must-have brushes. These are all you'll ever need.

 

Happy Self Love Day beauties. You're gorgeous. You're special. And you deserve a little time out.

 

With love and hugs
