Who else is struggling with how fast this year is flying by?! I almost cant believe that we are three months into 2017?! How did that even happen… it feels like Christmas Day was only last week !!
Anyhoo What’s Leah’s favourites I hear you say? Well! I’m starting a new monthly series of some of my favorite things from the previous month. This could be anything such as a new Mascara, a recipe, book, tip, etc.
Check out some of my favourite things from February….
Well where do I start with these babies … oh yes lets start with WOW!! These little ingenious insoles are actually life changing for somebody like me who struggles to wear high heels in the first place! Not only are they crazy comfortable but they give your legs and butt the look you crave from heels when wearing your everyday flats!
Invisible Heels, are specifically designed to fit any above-the-ankle shoes, including Ugg Boots, leather boots and high-top sneakers & will increase your height by 1.5″, lift your butt and slim your overall figure. Simply slip them into any shoe to instantly say hello to your longer legs!

Osmosis CC Cream
This amazing little miracle product by Osmosis is my new go to base for all my makeup looks! It is a natural-looking colour corrector that looks and feels heavenly! Not only does it offer UV protection (I’m notoriously useless at remembering to wear sunblock), but it is also said to help reduce age spots while giving the skin a bright even tone!! Everything I need and want in one handy tube!
Whilst it may not be the most inexpensive product to buy at $93.00 I certainly feel that it is worth every cent!

Bvlgari Rose Goldea
Perfume is such a personal thing and I am usually very specific!! My normal go to scent is Coco Mademoiselle.

Top Notes: Heart of Pomegranate, Extract of rose petals, Nectar of musks
Heart Notes: Damascena Rose Absolute, Jasmin Absolute
Base Notes: Sensual Musks, Sandalwood Milk, Essence of White Incense
A floral musk fragrance
Rose Quarts Bracelet
I have to say, I am so proud of my wonderful Mum Lorraine (or Lozz Dog 😂 for those of you that know mum from following my snapchat @nailsbyleah)
Mum has just started her very own business @lolly_beads on Instagram and is following her very own passion by making incredible bracelets, necklaces & light catchers using the most incredible quality crystals and semi precious stones!! Every piece is made by hand with total love and care… make sure you go and check out what she is doing as this photo does the bracelet NO justice!!

IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara
For those of you who follow my behind the scenes on snapchat you will be all to familiar with how obsessed I’ve been over this mascara since getting it at Sephora in Melbourne late last year! in fact – I’ve only just re purchased more online via Beauty-Lish this time, thanks to the help of one of my followers who sent me a link !! Unfortunately Sephora NZ didn’t stock this particular mascara.
Its Super black, super thickening and super lengthening (maybe thats why they called it Superhero) plus a total 5 ★ from me!!

Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Eyeliner
I have to admit that even though I was sceptical (being this is a supermarket makeup brand) this little eyeliner sure stands up to its name … It is highly pigmented, it applies really easily, it dries fast and it sure does last the whole day!!
It is a great purchase and one I will be sure to make in the future!
$15.99 only available at Countdown nation wide
MAC Lip Scrubtious
Ok so if I’m honest this little bad boy isn’t really a February favourite because if the truth be told I only got this last week … BUT in my defence I love it so much that I truly feel it deserves its place here and I’m way too impatient to wait to add it next month!
This guy is called Candied Nectar however the scrubs come in five different scents and flavors. Once you have scrubbed and exfoliated with them, they leave behind an essence of oil for moisture and the faintest hint of a tint that looks like you’re wearing a bit of lip balm (for the brighter colours), they feel incredible, aren’t sticky and smell divine!!
$32.00 from all MAC & Smith & Caughey’s stores nation wide.

Last but certainly not least … I call these mummy litter helpers!! (DIM) DIM stands for di-indolylmethane. Don’t be put off by the big chemical sounding name; it is a natural plant ingredient found in cruciferous vegetables. These are vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, and bok choy. By making DIM as a supplement it relieves the need to consume over 1.3 kg of them each day to get to the required level of DIM.
DIM helps your body properly metabolize estrogen.Estrogen and testosterone imbalance can be linked to numerous health issues. Keeping estrogen levels at healthy level in relation to other hormones is key for both men and women of all ages. Uterine, cervical, breast and prostate health all rely on proper
Estrogen metabolism to stay healthy
