Something new is coming to QV1

Unless you’ve worked nearby, you’ve probably never really had a reason to check out the iconic QV1 building in the heart of the city, but that is all about to change.

Beauty Bites January

Let’s just skip right over the fact that I’ve been too busy to get a December edition of this feature done and move straight on to checking out some of the products I’ve been using lately. I spent two weeks in Victoria over Christmas and New Year’s, and these are the products that came with me.

Beauty Bites November

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.

But running a small business can be a LOT of hard work and take more than a little bit of blood, sweat and tears. So why not help a small biz out when you can and shop with them first?

As many of you know, I love coming home after a long day and getting cosy on the couch while a delicious candle burns nearby, so kicking off this shop local feature with candles was a no brainer for me! Why not support these awesome Perth makers by visiting them online, at a market or a local stockist stat.
