Highlights #24

Happy Highlight day! The sun has started creeping out of hiding, and I find myself THIS CLOSE to yelling at random trees and shrubs to hurry the hell up with buds and leaves and flowers so I can at least have some assurance that spring is on its way. Well, it’s a little way to go, but ...

Highlights #19

This time of year is usually my favourite – the languid heat of August and September, the fresh start of post-holiday returns to school and work and society, the abundance of delicious produce and the fall beauty launches are what I look forward to all year. However, this heat wave is murder ...

Review: Pixi Peel & Polish

I love a bit of pixi, and I think in recent years their skincare releases have been really impressive. So it was only a matter of time before I had to try this exoliating treatment, since I have a bit of an obsession with acids and enzymes. Pixi Peel & Polish is a lactic acid, enzyme & scrub ...
