Fringe Benefits

Posted on

I blame Zooey Deschanel. I blame her IN FULL for my obsession with fringes. I mean, she is just WONDERFUL. To those who are insanely irritated by her, I say “STOP BEING A DIV, SHE IS WELL FUN”. And she works the fringe oh SO well. All who know me will know that every single time I Read the Rest »

Amy’s Organic Beauty Revolution

Posted on

By Amy Murch This week I have been on a massive organic journey. The folks over at Green People got in touch with Mabel to ask if I would like to be part of a team of five bloggers taking part in their ‘Organic Blogger Challenge’  and basically swap all my normal products for a Read the Rest »


DIY Organic Face Cream

Posted on

By Kezia Hall There is nothing I love more (other than a basket full of organic vegetables) than a beauty product. Even better still, a homemade, dirt cheap, beauty product that actually works and happens to be organic! Equal to my love of beauty products and things that claim to ‘transform’ my life (I once spent Read the Rest »

The Commonwealth Legacy – Every Day Fitness in 25 Minutes

Posted on

By Kezia Hall I have become an avid sports fan. WHO would have thought this would happen? Never in all my days did I think I could be transfixed by watching weight lifting. So much so, I booked tickets to see it live! I’m a convert. I mean, rugby has always had it appeal (for obvious Read the Rest »

Posted on

Posted on

Hi. I’m Amy and I’m a Shellac-er. There, I’ve said it. Ooft, glad I got that off my chest. When I was wee, my beauty weakness was a set of bright red 80s stick-on fingernails which I would flamboyantly parade around to various family members, theatrically throwing my hands in their faces asking “Hoooooow d’you Read the Rest »

Give Your Skin a Kiehl’s Treat

Posted on

By Amy Murch So last week we took a casual wander down Buchanan street and headed into the launch of the newest branch of the supreme skincare branch, Kiehl’s. Let me tell you, it was a feast for all the senses, what with some serious beats being knocked out by DJ Yasmin, unbelieveable Auchentoshan cocktails Read the Rest »


The one when Amy met Commonwealth swimmer Robbie Renwick (and stroked his legs)

Posted on

I was quite a late starter to the whole swimming thing. A very dramatic near drowning experience in a water park aged 10 encouraged my mum to enrol me in swimming lessons -cue me being awkwardly surrounded by 5 year old water babies who were practically nailing the butterfly in lesson 1. Still, I powered Read the Rest »
