My favourite Kusmi teas of the moment

For those of you who have read this blog for a while, you'll know I drink quite a bit of tea - and one of my favourite tea brands is Kusmi. I was introduced to the brand two or three years ago by my boyfriend's mother while I was in France, but quickly discovered that it was also available in Australia (David Jones has a small but solid range of their teas). Although they're French, Kusmi is renowned for their Russian-style black teas and tisanes, although I really enjoy their green tea selection, too. I thought I'd share my favourite teas I've discovered so far from them, but please also share your picks as well - I'm always up for trying more!

Another little blog update...

A few weeks, I promised that I'd start posting three times a week on my blog and even start producing videos, as I'd have ample time to work on my blog once university finished for the semester. Well, it appears I was somewhat over ambitious - I was given an opportunity for work experience at very short notice, and so have been unable to dedicate as much time as I had desired to the blog.

So for the next two weeks or so, I'll only be updating once a week - and then, I promise, I'll be 100% fully back into the blogging game as I have so many exciting ideas.

See you soon!

Beauty in five minutes or less

Somedays I'm all for spending an hour putting on three consecutive face masks, deep conditioning my hair, then meticulously tending to my nails - but most days I don't have the time or energy to do more than a simple skincare routine. I realised however that I regularly undertake a few beauty tasks that take anywhere from a few seconds to a five minutes - far more manageable in my mind, and I still getting something out the way. If you've got a few minutes to spare, maybe think of trying out one of these quickly accomplished tasks?

(Also, I'm conscious that it ought to be "five minutes or fewer" but at the risk of sounding pedantic, I've opted for the more common turn of phrase. :P)
