It’s that time of year again we where sit back, relax and rejoice in all things Aussie.
B is for Bloom (Natalie thank you for making quite possibly the best range of nail polishes. Ever.), Be Genki (Sam, thank you for making us realise the importance of taking time out of our hectic lives. And congrats on being granted accreditation by Choose Cruelty Free) and BECCA who’s Bird of Paradise Gloss I would be so lost without (big, big thanks Rebecca). And quite possibly the greatest Aussie ‘B’ of all-time…beautyheaven!
C is for Catherine McNeil and Cheyenne Tozzi – spreading Aussie glamness far and wide.
E is for Endota Spa, Australia’s largest Australian-owned spa network, which started in 2000.

J is for Jurlique for their gorgeous approach to beauty: beauty is defined by sustainable connections – to oneself, to the community, and to the earth. And Jen, our favourite homegirl.
K is for Kylie!!!!!!!
L is for Lamingtons – yummy. And Lara Bingle, also yummy in a WAG chic kind of way.
M is for ModelCo. Loved by Posh, loved by Michelle, loved by Sarah (me in case I’m not famous enough to be recognised without my last name. Tut.)
