Okay so this week’s post was written and ready to go but after meeting with one of the founders of this week’s topic I came home and I had to re-write it.
Today, I had the absolute pleasure in meeting with Jess from Maslow & Co. – We immediately clicked (well I thought we did! Jess, did we? Or was I just delirious from Lagree?) Anyway, she was gracious enough to meet me albeit me in my gym clothes after a devil session at Lagree (see two posts back here) bright and early on a Saturday morning. While sipping on chai lattes and me in my active-wear (so, so cliché, I know! – Insert hands covering eyes) we got chatting over everything health and beauty. This woman is seriously amazing and her new concept is nothing short of SENSATIONAL (yes I’m saying that in shouty capitals.)
Rejoice beauty lovers of Perth – There is a new kid on the block and she is sure to set hearts on fire.
Before I tell you all about this latest amazing idea let me tell you why I love it. Firstly, I am in my thirties. Yep, the time when you look in the mirror and realize this is the youngest you will ever be again (that seemed like a great analogy to write however I now realize when I am reading it back that I may have caused a few women to want to want to poke their eyeballs out. I am sorry). Everyone wants to feel and look their best and there is a wide, wide range of products out there all claiming to do something special for us, but how do we know what works for us and what doesn’t?! I have no patience for sifting through beauty counters. I don’t even wear an eye cream (yes my mother is cringing as she reads this – I am sure she has been using some secret beauty elixir for the last 20 years because we are always getting mistaken for sisters – not great when you are 22 years younger than her) it’s just not my thing.
Introducing Maslow & Co. – A beauty box or a ‘beauty exploration membership’ (which is a much more fitting term) will be launched this month. Two Perth girls, Jess and Melissa are the geniuses behind this exciting new box to come out of Perth. We are talking about a beauty box subscription that gives you a little taste test of super products that are emerging from all over the world that you wouldn’t necessarily normally here about. Inside each package is a carefully curated collection of 6+ luxury travel size products (this month there are a few full sized products), the best from their country of origin valued at $150.00. Each box has a different country attached to it – can’t travel? Don’t worry! They are bringing the exotic destinations to you. Now, I don’t want to give too much away because there is something wonderful about seeing and opening the box for the first time and no matter what I write it will not do it justice but know this, it is heaven in a box.
Top three reasons why I love this;
1. Perth girls, Perth idea, based in Perth.
2. The products in these boxes are sourced from the girls themselves (yes they do more flying than we can actually fathom!) they do all the research, so if they don’t love it, it doesn’t go in.
3. These products are the next big thing in their respective fields, and we get them before the world goes crazy for them.
Each box gets delivered bi-monthly. Boxes are $44.00 and you can cancel anytime (really, anytime!) Or you can purchase just one box – Perfectly timed for Christmas.
Now I am not paid to write this nor am I encouraged to write amazing things about it. I just happen to love it. And Jess, I am completely crushing on you.
Until next time…
