About Me

Welcome to Melbourne Beauty, a personal blog documenting my beauty, fashion, shopping, entertainment and culinary adventures in the city of Melbourne, Australia. I started this blog as a way to communicate all that is great about this town for those with an appreciation for the best in beauty, great style and tasty treats. If you’re a local, I hope you are able to stumble upon something new here. If you’re from out of town, use this blog as a starting point to plan your itinerary!

Who Am I?

I’m 26 years old and relative newcomer to Melbourne, although I have quickly embraced the stereotypes – I ride the tram everywhere, I love eating out, I’m a footy fanatic (Go Tigers!) and I wear lots of black.

I’m a brunette with green eyes and very pale, cool-toned complexion. I am a devotee of Dr Spiller skincare and when it comes to colour cosmetics, I love natural beauty looks. My favourite brands are Stila, Chanticaille, NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown and Clinique, however I am continually discovering more and more great products from other lines. I used to do most of my beauty shopping on the ground floors of Myer and David Jones (Bourke Street Mall, of course!) but more recently, I can be found in Mecca Maxima, Melbourne Central – it’s the best place to go to experiment with product and the service is outstanding!

When it comes to fashion, my style is casual and minimalist (as in, minimal details, not minimal clothing!). My most-visited stores are Witchery, Country Road, French Connection, Marcs and SABA. I love to load up on accessories to add interest to my outfits, and am an avid collector of scarves and chunky cocktail rings. Mimco and Samantha Wills are my go-to designers for jewellery.

I’m a sports tragic, spending most weekends at the MCG but also embracing rugby league, rugby union, tennis and any other spectacle involving a ball. I love musicals and have seen pretty much every major show since I moved here (Jersey Boys is unbeatable!), same goes for the special exhibits at the museum and gallery. I eat out at least once a week. My favourite places are Taxi, Tazio, Red Spice Road and La Camera.
