New Season Wardrobe Ready

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you're all having a wonderful week :o)

Today I'm going to share with you some of my Wardrobe Ready tips for the change of seasons. 

Now I know that some of you are reading this in Australia (Southern Hemisphere) and others are reading from the Northern Hemisphere. But these tips are relevant to everyone - we're all changing seasons, whether it's from Summer to Winter or Winter to Summer. To make it easier I'm going to say "Old Season" and "New Season" clothes.

With the change of Season we can start to organise and de-clutter our wardrobes. It's a great feeling!! :o)

From This:

To This:

Here's how:

1)  Separate your Old Season garments from your New Season ones. Put your Old Season garments to the side for now.

2)  If there are items that you haven't worn for the last two seasons and don't think you will likely wear them again, put them to the side as well.

3)  Sort out all your New Season tops, pants, skirts, knits, jackets, jeans etc into their colour groups.

4)  Hang all these colour groups separately but together in your wardrobe.

5)  Do the same with your accessories, shoes, boots, jewellery, scarf's and handbags.

This is a great way to work out your mix and match pieces and create an investment wardrobe by not only always wearing one or two outfits. Mix and match jackets with different pants, skirts and tops. Jackets/blazers can go fabulously with your designer jeans and dresses over tights etc!! 

5)  Now, stand back and see what you really need to make your wardrobe work even better!

6)  Make a list of these items and put them on your shopping/wish list.

7)  Next step is to neatly fold your Old Season garments and store them away  for the next season change.

8)  With the garments that you don't want any more, neatly fold them and either gift them to family and friends or donate them to your local charity store.

Now you're ready to make room for new pieces and further add to your Fabulosity!!

Hope this was a little bit helpful and if you have any questions, as always, let me know :o)

GlossyBox - March

Hi Lovelies,

Hope you're having a lovely day :o)

I thought I'd share with you what I received in my March GlossyBox. Included was an info card that had 18 items on it and each box had a selection of 5 of those products - so it looks like everyone got a different box of goodies. I was happy with mine, as they were all products that I'd not tried before.

The only con is that the full size prices weren't included on the info card.

Let me know what you got in yours and if you were happy with the selection :o)

First off some cards to read....

Absolutely Gorgeous - Macadamia Face Cream

"Create a barrier against moisture loss and slow
down ageing with this macadamia nut face cream."

It's not as moisturising as I thought it would be but
it still feels really nice on the skin. I love 
that it includes Organic Rosehip Oil and
Carrot Oil which is great for the skin!!

Proactiv - Cleansing Body Bar

"Now you can easily use a soap bar to gently 
exfoliate, fight body breakouts and give your
skin a deep clean."

I know there's a lot of controversy over Proactiv,
I've never used it before but I'll try out this Body Bar
and see how it goes - I feel it's safer to use on my body
rather than on my face starting out :o)

Dencorub - Extra Strength Heat Gel

"Stressed, strained and sore muscles after work or
exercise? Experience relief with this heat gel formula."

This has actually come at a good time for me!!
I've just started a new workout regime and as you know,
when you start using new muscles you haven't worked 
in awhile, they can get a bit sore to start with!!
So I'll be giving this Heat Gel a go I think haha!!

Eau Thermale Avene - Gentle Toner

"For dry and very dry sensitive skin"

Gorgeous Toner - very gentle and feels
very nourishing

KMS California - Free Shape Hot Flex Spray

"Expect your hair to feel soft, silky and with less breakage
because this formula protects from heat and 
styling stressors"

I must say I love the sound of this product!!
Having a shaping product mixed with a heat protector is fab!!
Two products in one - I haven't tried this yet but it
sounds great and smells pretty good too.
Fingers crossed it does what it says!!

Klorane - Dry Shampoo

"Get a fresh look with Klorane's shampoo for
soft, clean hair."

I love dry shampoo so I'm looking forward to trying this brand.
It says that it's extra-gentle and made with oat milk.
Smells yummy!!

Power Balancing Bracelet

"Often worn by athletes who find that it supports their
strength and flexibility"

Well I'm not sure if I'm feeling stronger or more flexible but
I've been wearing it because it's pink and looks cute..!!

It was great to receive and try out these new products. I always look forward to what is included in each month's box. A present that arrives at your door each month - yay!!

Have a Great Day and Be Inspired,

Lust Have It - March

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you're all doing well!!

I received my Lust Have It March pack in the mail last week and thought I would show you what yummy products I got and what my thoughts are on each of them :o)

Davroe Moisture Senses Argan Oil

50ml RRP $23.95

"Weightless and non greasy. Immediately absorbed 
into the hair with no build up."

I was very excited to try out this Argan Oil!! 
And I wasn't disappointed - I used a pump after washing my hair
and let it dry naturally over night - the next day my hair was 
silky smooth, manageable and smelt devine all day!!

Karpati DITO Nail Lacquer

8ml RRP $19.95

"Offers a long lasting, streak free formula. With 27 fast drying,
extra shiny colours it's no wonder we love it so much."

Well.... First of all what a great invention!! 
Been able to hold the nail polish
between your fingers while you paint away!!
The colour that I received was a dark brown ( ). 
I applied it straight away and it has lasted really 
well over the past week. 
It's a bit pricey but the design is 
fabulous and the other colours look fab!!

1Skin Solutions Lip Balm in Vanilla

5g RRP $9.90

"Nourish and protect your put with this sweet scented balm.
Rich in cocoa butter and vitamin E, its your everyday
essential this season"

Australian made - tick
Smells great - tick
Nourishing - tick
All in all I love this lip balm!! 
It's next to my computer for a re-apply anytime!! :o)

Replenishing Moisture Cream from Kosmea

50ml RRP $49.95

"Works to restore your skin's radiance and protect
it against the signs of premature ageing."

I love the Kosmea range but I must say this 
Moisturiser wasn't as nourishing as I thought it would be.
It left my skin feeling a bit dry after I applied it unfortunately..

Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadow from Mirenesse

RRP $29.95

"Take your look from day to night with pure crushed
natural minerals that blend seamlessly to create
flawless eyes. Available in 5 trio palettes."

Well I got the palette shown above which is called "Rich Girl"
The colours are stunning and apply beautifully.
I love that they are paraben and talc free, 
made for sensitive eyes and long lasting.

So that was the March LHI box!! I've been really impressed with the products each month and feel that they are very consistent. Check them out at 

If you have any questions let me know!!

Have a great day and Be Inspired,
