Weekly Wellness Wrap-Up!

Kit nails! ♥

Today I’d like to share with you the beauty and wellbeing bits n pieces that have made my week – hopefully you like them, please share your wellness wrap-up too if you like!

1. Got ma nails did for FREE at the Kit event in Enex100.

And I swear it’s one of the best manicures I’ve ever had! The new season free spirits edition colour is called ‘Play Down‘ (shown above). The girls at this event were the sweetest things and I hope that Kit run something like this again soon, it was great!

2. Raw Comedy State Final @ His Majesty’s Theatre.

16 comedians did battle last night with words and wit as their weapons, the winner (Tien Tran) is headed off to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to vie for the national title! Let me tell you, this event was fantastic. There were so many highlights I can’t even remember some of them, but I would go again in a heartbeat, laughing is also AMAZING for your wellbeing, didyaknow?

3. Super mild sunscreen for the face in the form of QV Moisturising Day Cream with SPF 30+.

I’m having a bit of a love affair with this guy, after being told off by my beauty therapist for not wearing sunscreen on my face each day. My skin is a bit sensitive and prone to breaking out, so I needed something mild, non-clogging but effective, I also didn’t want that whole white-mask business that some sunscreens try and get away with.

This stuff RULZ! It has almost no smell, is non-greasy, non-sticky, is a great base for make up and ticks all of the above boxes as well. Best of all it is only $15.99 from pharmacies/Priceline!!! It has moved swiftly up the ranks to must have product in my bathroom.

4. Retreat for one at Bodhi J Day Spa.

Last Monday I treated myself to a spa day. It was fantastic. Review to come in the next few days!

5. T2 Spi Chai Tea!

I avoid caffeine where I can (but I do love my choccy!) and as a huge lover of chai tea have been searching for a decaff alternative for a while now. In T2 the other day, I stumbled upon Spi Chai, which is exactly what I’ve been wishing for!

Ingredients: Star anise, cardamon seeds/pods, liquorice root, cinnamon, ginger, jasmine, cloves, rose petals.

It’s a beautiful blend which is soothing & mildly warming, perfect as we’re waving goodbye to Summer (finally). I have mine with Vitasoy soy milk & a squeeze ‘o honey. It doesn’t make the water really dark (coz there’s no actual tea in it unlike regular chai) but the flavour is still strong and delicious. Do try it!

What have you been doing this week to up your wellness quotient?

Be well,

    Spa day sounds awesome 😀

    I’ve been shopping haha nothing like retail therapy 😉

  2. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Hey Jade!

    It was amaaaaaazing. Nothing like a half hour spa and then an hour aromatherapy massage to make life seem pretty good 🙂

    Retail therapy is a good one, esp as the seasons are changing… the perfect excuse ;D

    I too visited T2 over the weekend – unfortunately I don’t like liquorice/aniseed/anything like that so can’t drink chai mostly; however I did sample and then subsequently buy the New Zealand breakfast tea with…kiwi pieces! Needs no sweetener and is delish =)

  4. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Oh that is so cute miss marian!

    Kiwi pieces, how sweet. Glad you’re a fellow T2 lover, the place is seriously addictive!

  5. Kasey says:

    I have been using the GV day moisturiser for a year or so now its the best thing ever. I use all the GV stuff actually, the eye cream, the night cream, the body cream and shower wash too! Its all great 🙂

  6. Helen says:

    The GV moisturiser is fabulous for us super-sensitive types who suffer from eczema too 🙂

  7. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Awesome! The body wash is good too 🙂 I enjoy x

  8. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Hi Helen,

    Thanks for your comment 🙂

    You’re right, my boyfriend gets eczema at times and the body wash especially is fantastic for that!

    Glad you like the product as well xox
