A Letter of Gratitude to Myself on My 40th Birthday

They say life begins at 40. I say life begins every day. I know a lot of people freak out when they turn 40, but for me, I am super excited to turn 40.

Just like any other year, I have turned a year older and wiser. Each of those years has been a DREAM COME TRUE! A NEW CHAPTER IN LIFE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MYSELF, LIFE AND GIVE THANKS TO A LIFE LIVED FULLY.

It only seems like yesterday I came into this world.

One year ago on this day May 9th I lost a Dear Big Sister

Yet again today feels like that day driving into work and receiving that message that the heavens hard called upon you sis! I can’t believe today a Year ago on the 9th of May  the heavens called you and needed another angel! It hurts more today to know that your birthdays are without a call. That your laughter has become a memory and you have become a memory to hold on too! At times I just need to hear your voice and ask what are you eating! At times I just call your number but I can’t hear your voice. I sit in silence hoping you will finally pick up. But no you are gonna to another place where where there is no sorrow, pain, suffering just love light and laughter and more. As long as I live I see you, as long as I live you my butterfly as long as live you will never be forgotten, as long as I live you will be loved! Miss you dearly my darling big sister. Hard to believe that one year ago you took your last breath that took all your suffering away. Happy that you are not in pain anymore and singing your favourite songs in heaven! UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN RIP SIS... read more

Olaplex Snapchat Takeover at Ebony & Ivory 03-02-2017

Receiving the news that our salon would be taking over the Olaplex Snapchat felt like we were receiving an Oscar! That feeling, that excitement completely took over at Ebony and Ivory when we found out that we would be the first salon ever in Australia to be given the opportunity to take over the Olaplex Snapchat for a day! Happiness overflowing, sleepless nights with nervous energy, we knew that this day would be a game changer for our salon. But the biggest question was….what would I wear?! Before I share more about the day, I’ll tell you a little bit more about the amazing brand that is Olaplex. Olaplex is a bond multiplier that protects hair during and after hair colouring. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment, used with relaxer, and more! When hair is exposed to certain chemicals present in hair colour and heat, the bonds break. Olaplex prevents that critical damage from happening by multiplying the bonds, strengthening them. Clients are always freaking out at the transformation that happens because of Olaplex! Olaplex has a presence worldwide, with multiple Instagram accounts for different countries, and salons everywhere hashtagging #olaplex on their posts. Olaplex has been a game-changer for us at Ebony and Ivory since we started using it four years ago. The more we educate our clients about Olaplex, the more they come back to use it! That is why we were so excited to be taking over their Snapchat for a day; the opportunity to show the world how great Olaplex has been for us here in Perth, WA! It was a day of endless fun,... read more

Fifty Shades Darker Movie Premiere Perth

Fifty Shades Darker is a must see movie of the year. This is a movie in the Fifty Shades trilogy featuring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. In cinemas Australia wide on the 10th of February.  I love it when I receive my VIP private movie  premiere viewing from universal Pictures Australia Perth. This means a new movie 🎥 is here 🙂 last night was #fiftyshadesdarker my favourite I may add.  When I first watched #fiftyshadesofgrey. I was left thirsty for more. And could not wait for the second sequel to come to the big screen.  And writer E L James did not disappoint this movie 🎥 is a must see if you are into  provocative romance movies like me. Take your girlfriends, partners any one you wish to take. Put on one of your best outfits. Just like the first one the second one is even more elegant and everything you may want to see.  On that note I will stop as I want you to enjoy it as much as I did. http://www.eljamesauthor.com “But I’m a selfish man. I’ve wanted you since you fell into my office. You are exquisite, honest, warm, strong, witty, beguilingly innocent; the list is endless. I’m in awe of you. I want you, and the thought of anyone else having you is like a knife twisting in my dark soul.” #fiftyshadedarker #perth #romance #romantic #movie #universalpicturesaustralia #universalpictures #love #provocativeromance #sex #book #DakotaJohnson #JamieDornan #KimBasinger #BellaHeathcote #RitaOra #LukeGrimesMax #MartiniEloiseMumford  #VictorRasuk #JamesFoley #MarciaGayHarden #BrantDaugherty... read more

Happy Father’s Day

Today I say Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing fathers, my late father and my amazing husband with a poem. Feel free to tag and share with all fathers that matter in our lives. Fathers deserve to be celebrated more. Many times we forget to celebrate them as men are not as affection as women. Over the years I have watched many men around me and learnt that they are just as affection as woman but find it hard to show it or say it.
