Luxurious Raw Botanicals from Babs Bodycare

Luxurious Raw Botanicals from Babs Bodycare

Babs Bodycare is a luxurious new Australian range so I was keen to try a couple of their face and body oils. I tried my first face oil years ago – it was Clarins Blue Orchid Oil – and I LOVED it. But I had no benchmark back then, and I probably used too much. So have they changed much? It’s not much fun waking up with greasy skin which may be why many Australian women have opted for oil-free skincare. Despite my virginal foray into face oil back in the day, face and body oils have been around for…

Five Must-Have Travel Essentials

Five Must-Have Travel Essentials

I recently went on a South Pacific cruise and it was one of the most wonderful holidays I have ever experienced. I hadn’t ‘cruised’ before so wasn’t sure what to expect; and I was not disappointed. The most compelling positive was having everything in one place, on board – entertainment, fabulous food, wonderful wines, views, fascinating people, leisure activities, even an Art Gallery – and not having to travel long distances for any of it. It got me thinking about other holiday options and what I would and would not need if I chose different destinations. Of course, that led…
