I am a little bit obsessed with all things natural, eco-friendly and beautiful.  You may know this about me already.  There are plenty of things out there – fashion, beauty, make up, homewares and more – that all claim to be green, sustainable, organic, insert-latest-‘it’-word-here, but I find that if they are any of these things then they are usually lacking somewhere else.  What I’m trying to say in a gentle way is that sometimes the green stuff sucks.  

Mineral make up is great but if it doesn’t cover blemishes and sweats off in 1 hour then it’s pretty useless.  Organic, natural, vegan skin care  of any kind is awesome but if it doesn’t cleanse, tone, moisturise – you know, the basics of skincare – then it’s useless.

So I’ve tried a few brands.  Ok a lot of brands.  And I’ve settled on my absolute favourites.  Not just settled.  They are the bomb.  They tick all my boxes – Australian-made, natural ingredients, made with love, vegan, GOOD QUALITY.  And I want to share them with you.  So…. I created a little online shop where I can sell the things I love, give you discounts and we all get to support lovely, local, natural, eco-friendly, good quality products and brands and people.  Yay.

To celebrate the launch of this online shop, which sits over at Shine From Within (because I introduce all of the students to these lovely natural brands during the courses so it felt right to set it up over there), I’m offering you a nice big discount.  Yay again!  Simply enter ‘shineshoplaunch’ in to the coupon code spot at checkout and you’ll receive a 15% discount on everything.  Expires Tuesday 18 March, so check it out and if there is something you would like to try, now’s the time.  If you have any questions about any of the products, feel free to send me an email.

If you are on Instagram, you can also WIN a prize pack worth over $300 simply by sharing the below image on instagram.  Just follow @shinefromwithinhq & share the pic with the hashtag #shineshoplaunch.  Simple!  The prize pack includes beautiful make up brushes (these are so incredibly soft and totally vegan) in a great travel size pack, mascara, lip gloss, and the best skincare invention I’ve ever come across – Twenty8’s Healing Skin Boost.  You will also receive a $100 voucher to use on any Shine From Within course or workshop.

If you are not on instagram or just want to score extra points, you can also comment below with what your non-negotiables are when it comes to beauty products and I’ll add you to the competition.  Does it have to be vegan?  Locally-produced?  Organic?  Natural?  None of the above?  I’d love to know!

You can share the image as many times as you like and the competition ends Tuesday 18th March.



Best of luck!
