Bust Stress And Bust Not.

Here’s a great stress busting aromatherapy recipe based on three gorgeously effective 100% pure essential oils and is just divine when placed in a vaporizer or oil burner:

3 drops of Petitgrain
2 drops of May Chang (Lemon Verbena)
1 drop of Ylang Ylang

This wondrous mood elevator also works when dripped onto a tissue or hanky and used as a sniffer when a burner is not suitable. Just sniff as needed. You’ll be chilled out in an instant with this rapidly effective little lifesaver. This beauty is definitely worthwhile to keep up your sleeve (or in your burner, pocket, or handbag) for such times when you could do with traveling a little lighter during stressful times.

*The electric oil vaporizer pictured above is a special Beauty Marked!® Limited Edition Burner, which is available for purchase for $49.00 AUD plus P&H for those wishing to get even more gorgeousness about! (International shipping is gladly made available as is any plug conversion required for a small additional fee). Just drop Beauty Marked! an email to arrange purchase or find out more. It’s our complete pleasure to assist!

Culture’s Rarest Pearls.

We’ve got to hand it to M.A.C.. They really are just too cool for school. They are the cultivators of “New Cool” to be precise. There are no gradations where they’re concerned. The Stylistics Collection by M.A.C. is imminently due to hit our shores in true style. Like they’d arrive in any other fashion.

“The cultivated new cool of 21st century Hepcats. When it comes to style, design, and hip, they’re in the know…they’re the true jazz, culture’s rarest and richest pearls. Act smooth, be soft, but diamond-sharp…super cool. Their paradox is the mystery. There’s glamour in the je ne sais quoi.”

A Buzzy Little Treat.


This beaut little homemade lip balm is dead easy to make and a real buzzy little treat for your lips. Just soften a tablespoon of pure shea butter (organic if you can get it) enough to be able to stir in a half a teaspoon of your favourite honey. Transfer the thoroughly mixed gorgeousness into a small clean glass jar or tin and place in fridge to set. Enjoy!
