Things are heating up in Perth, and with the temperature rising there’s never been a better time to get out and explore some of the best events, places and food the city has on offer.
I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for recommendations when it comes to beauty and skincare. In the past I’ve tended to stick to one or two brands for fear of wasting money on something that just doesn’t work for me, but these days I read a lot more about products and am more willing to branch out and try new things. In fact I love nothing more than wandering through Priceline or Chemist Warehouse looking for new goodies to try, so I wanted to share my thoughts on a few products. You can expect to see these mini reviews on a monthly basis, so let me know what you think!
It would be so easy for me to start this review with just a bunch of heart-eye emojis, but I guess I owe it to a place I love so much to write a bit more than that!
So yes, I love Health Freak Café and I am so excited that there are finally places like this around – where there are loads of vegetarian and vegan goodies on the menu, alongside meals to make the omnivores happy. At Health Freak Cafes absolutely everything is gluten and refined sugar free, and the whole idea is that whatever you order you can feel good about eating it.
Last weekend the Bloggers United AU held their second event in Perth, and it was the first blogger event that I had been to.
Not quite sure what to expect I turned up at the Four Points by Sheraton in the city for what ended up being a super fun few hours. So what is Bloggers United AU? It’s a group that aims to connect bloggers, vloggers and Youtubers around Australia, started by the ladies who run NJT Blogger and Sweetaholic Beauty, and their events are an opportunity to establish in-person connections with the blogging community.
Have you been to Guilford yet? For those not in the know, it’s a gorgeous town close to the Swan Valley that is steeped in history with The Guildford Hotel at its heart.
The hotel has been around since 1886, but in more recent history it’s been through three iterations. First up in my memory, it was a typical ‘local pub’ with a drive-through Bottle-o, where you could play pool and get in on some karaoke, nothing special but in a great spot and in a beautiful old building. Unfortunately it burned down in 2008 and for the best part of the next decade the old building remained gutted while activists constantly fought to bring it back to life.
Luckily for us that happened earlier this year, and The Guildford is now back bigger, better, and more beautiful than ever.
It’s been five weeks now since I had carpal tunnel release surgery and I wanted to let you all know things are going really well! The good news is the pain and numbness I was experiencing has completely gone away – woohoo! Unfortunately the bad news is I’m still pretty sore and weak due to the surgeon having to cut through what I understand is a pretty big ligament to get to the nerve. This can apparently take anywhere from 6 weeks up to 6 months to heal up, so here’s hoping that in a couple more weeks I start seeing some big improvements on that front.
What does this mean for the blog? I’m launching back into it as of today – it just might mean it takes me a little longer to write posts than usual! I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff up my sleeve that I can’t wait to share, especially my very first bloggers event that’s happening tomorrow! Make sure you jump over to my Instagram or Snapchat (username: hvnstourniquet) to see all of the highlights from the Bloggers United Au event.
I’m also working on the website for my newest venture, Emdash Media (I’ll let you all know when that is up and running) and have just started my Social Media Mastery certification. It’s all happening!
More from me real soon! x
Just popping by to let you guys know I’ll be taking a short break from blogging over the coming weeks. Things have been a little quiet recently and will be for another few weeks as I’m having carpal tunnel release surgery tomorrow. I’ll still be posting over on Instagram and Snapchat (username: hvnstourniquet) to help prevent cabin fever while I recover, if you’d like to come along for the ride. I can’t wait to get stuck back into things in a few weeks! Wish me luck x
