Is it Wheelie Bin Day Yet!?

Is it Wheelie Bin Day Yet!?


Stop for a minute……..
when did you last have some ‘Me’ Time???

I am not just talking about sitting quietly and enjoying a cup of your favourite brew. 

I am saying for us girls, when did you take the time to enjoy applying your makeup, stopping to paint your nails (and toe nails to match), using a hair masque or enjoying a nice hot tub with some gorgeous products??  

For most of us getting to the bathroom without a child or animal following you seems to be a major achievement!

Human or Animal
they will always find you!


Life just gets busier and busier, demands and deadlines, dates and times!  
Go there, pick up this, a loooong line up at the bank
would you mind being on the local volunteer group!  
Breathing……we generally say ‘Yes sure’……afterall we do not want to disappoint people.


Self Care Time

Why then when someone suggest some self care we find it so difficult, why do we say ‘I wish, have no time’?????  
Have you peered in with envy at those Nail Cafes and seen people indulging in a foot spa!  Oooooh, yes please!!!

Self Care is an essential ingredient for survival in this fast paced World.
We need to pull ourselves back from the brink, the emotional breakdowns and the life crushing burnouts.
Self Care does not even need to take you 20 minutes, BUT Self Care DOES require practise!
So I hear you saying – well yeah it sounds lovely, but when!!!????

 Self Care requires regular practise!

You Can Do It!

Yep, you have a WHOLE 24 hours, to practice a 5 or 10 minute Self Care essential!
Create yourself a menu of quick, sweet delights for your busy lifestyle.

One of my favourite feel-good self care activity is treating myself to a hair masque!
Smells Good, Feels Great!



As a natural blonde, the Nutri Rich Hair Repair+ Treatment Masque has become a part of my weekly Hair Care routine – I use it much like I use a mask for my face; once a week instead of conditioner.  Unlike some salon recommended products I have tried, the Nutri Rich Repair Hair Treatment Masque does not leave my hair feeling sticky or weighed down.  I have noticed a reduction in split ends, frizz and have even had compliments from my hairdresser on how healthy my hair is looking.

Cornflakes, Raisins & Grapes

Cornflakes, Raisins & Grapes

Food! Food! Food!

 It is the one concept that most humans understand and love!  

And until we saw shows like
My Kitchen Rules, Great Australian Bakeoff and Masterchef,
our repretore of food language was pretty limited!

However, I am sure everyone would know what
a simple cornflake, raisin and grape was!!!

Lets look at the idea of using food in explaining
why the need for a complete skincare regime
would benefit our skin.

Remembering our skin is the largest organ in/on our bodies that needs to be looked after just as much as the lungs, heart and kidneys.

The Epidermis provides a waterproof barrier, protects the inner layers and creates our skin tone.

The Dermis is where hair follicles and sweat glands hang out.

Our third layer is deeper tissue known as the Hypodermis – made from fat and connective tissue!


Top Layer  – represents Cornflakes – dead skin cells

Middle Layer  – represents Raisins – dry, damaged skin cells

Bottom Layer  – represents Grapes – beautiful, smooth, youthful skin

Putting this concept into play with beauty now!

 Cornflakes can represent the dead layer of skin on top.

 If you ever tried to put a moisturizer or foundation on a cornflake, you will find it is never going to sit flush on the skin.  

If you have ever complained about a  handcreme that has never absorbed and sits wet’ on top of the skin, it is more than likely you have this layer of cornflakes (dead skin) sitting on top.

An exfoliator designed for the sensitivity of the face or body
is what will remove this gross layer.

A little gross fact

 (fascinating though)


Each of us will loose a two-storey home
full of dead skin over
our life time!!







 A little handy hint
(life changing hack)

 Exfoliate your legs before shaving, you will find your shave will last up to two weeks longer – because you are removing the dead skin, your razor will only catch hair.


Removal of the cornflakes exposes our second layer affectionately known as the raisin!

The raisin is the skin exposed, vulnerable and where our aging process can really get comfortable – you know like a couch potato!  It needs stimulation and motivation

If we do not look after this layer with our skincare regime of cleansing and toning, it becomes shrivelled up like a raisin.  We need to ensure that we moisturise our raisin, so our next layer of skin can be nice and plump like a juicy healthy grape!


Skin Solutions

Nutrimetics Naturally
Classic Care Collection

Enriched with nourishing Apricot Kernel Oil and more than 40 Botanical extracts, this Nutrmetics Skincare Collection will nurture your skin day after day, keeping it in optimal condition from youth to maturity.



An easy, simple routine to combat the crusty rough process of producing cornflakes.

If you are taking more that a couple of minutes to Cleanse, Exfoliate, Tone and Moisturise, your are taking too long!

SOOOO dont tell me you do not ‘Have Time’ to look after your skin!

After all it is with us for LIFE!!

Scrub those Cornflakes Away!!

An exfoliator such as this Honey & Almond Scrub will remove those dead skin cells.

Finely milled particles buff away the build up of the gross ‘cornflakes’ on your skin. While the stimulation will increase radiance, and a healthy glow, it ultimately massages the ‘raisin’ to promote our plump ‘grape’!

You need Exfoliation!

It IS that SIMPLE!

Let me take you through this
simple process……….

Step 1:  Use your Cleanser in the shower to clean the daily dirt & grime from your skin.

Step 2: Once a week, use your exfoliator in the scrub, gently massage dead skin down the drain!

Step 3: Once out of the shower, and dried off, using your fingertips, pat your toner gently over your whole face.

Step 4:  Once you are dressed, apply your moisturiser generously over your face.

Ageing Slowly and Gracefully!

Ageing Slowly and Gracefully!

I have become a recent user of Snapchat – slow I know – all these wonderful new social platforms we can play on!  My little niece loves to shock her Aunty with the crazy filters and antics she can create!  I love this interaction AND I love being able to put on filter across my own face – even if it includes bunny ears!

However, I was a little freaked out by the image before me with no filter, a close up of my face and……..

EEEEKKKKKKKK – there it was!!!!!!!! 

Wrinkles around my eyes!! ARRGHHHHHHH!!! 


Now at 45, I suppose this was going to start happening…

I am still wondering what happened to my 30s though!!

As we start to mature, we all have our own concerns –


Age Spots……………Broken Capillaries………. (sigh) Wrinkles 

Now I am not that vain that I want them to go completely…….. 

I just want to age gracefully and slllllooooowly!
(thankyou very much)

Turning 40 and beyond

There is a saying we have in the beauty circle –
when you turn 40 you earn the skin you deserve!  

If you neglect basic skincare, expect uneven skin and to age quicker. 

It is NEVER too early to start looking after you skin! 


 Yes that includes Eye Crème!


Kristie’s did you know………………

 In actual fact, the layers of skin around our eyes are 7 layers thinner than the remainder of skin on our face!  Our eye area, as many of you are aware, is much more sensitive than the rest of our face.

Hence, visible aging is generally first found around the delicate eye area. 

Lets explore a few of the symptoms!



Puffiness and swollen eyes concerns may stem from
allergies, being emotionally upset, heat, stress and exhaustion. 

Alcohol and smoking contribute to many skin problems,
and they also speed up that aging process.

The eye area has very few oil glands, hence the skin being dehydrated,
and that in returns creates dry, wrinkly and sagging skin.

Darkness around and under the eyes – this can be a combination of two things. 

Lack of sleep/stress and/or hereditary gene. 


Why do I have darkness under Eye?

   The cause of the darkness is because of compromised blood flow, environmental factors and as I mentioned the
thinner skin.  




  • Tight Firm & Fill Eye Serum
    An amazing eyecare solution produced by Nutrimetics

    Visible results are experienced within 15 minutes of application.

     Due to a little ingredient called a Tri-Peptide Complex – which in normal speaking terms, fills the contour of the wrinkled area, creating a smoother skin surface while also plumping and firming the sensitive skin.


     Enriched with

    Golden Chamomile to reduce under eye puffiness

    Cucumber extract for soothing sore, dry eyes 

    Algae Complex reducing the appearance of dark circles

My favourite feature
of this product is the unique
Micro-Rollerball applicator build
into the top of the serum.



The rollerballs are soothing, stimulating and make applying eye crème fun!

You can feel the circulation ‘bubbling’ around the eyes,
it is unique and a little quirky!

Easy Application Guidelines


Nutrimetics have also provided the customer with a user friendly massage guideline!!


Thankyou Nutrimetics – keeping it simple!

I am grateful for any hints, tips and tricks
that will assist my beauty regime





During summer pop this serum in the fridge to give those micro rollerballs the cool edge to massage the eye area.

Eye fact:

The perpetual motion of the 22 muscles around the eye create over 10 000 blinks per day!


Always leave home with your sunglasses, squinting, like many facial expressions cause lines to form!
