I have been late to the party my entire life. I discovered public transport at about 25 years of age, Girls approximately 5 years after the premiere and a couple of weeks ago I caught my first Uber. I mean, I still can’t work out how to watch the internet on my T.V but at least now I have WIFI in my house. And on my phone.
So when The Beauty Emporium invited me down to their Mount Eliza salon to have a treatment of my choice, I jumped at the chance to have my eye lashes tinted and a brow wax à la 1998. Then the gorgeous beauty therapist asked if I’d also like a brow tint and the Earth tilted on its axis in a moment which changed my life forever. Like the day I discovered The Rachel Zoe Project or podcasts or INSTAGRAM. I knew that I would never be the same.
FYI The Beauty Emporium provided me with this treatment free of charge so that I could write about my experience in this here blog. All opinions and words (and errors!) are mine.
The Beauty Emporium is set in the leafy village of Mount Eliza. It occupies level one (enter via the back) of a corner block on Ranelagh Drive and looks out across the trees towards the bay. There’s a couple of pedicure chairs and a nail station strategically positioned to maximise the view and the waiting area gets flooded with afternoon sun as clients await their little bit of indulgence.
The treatment rooms feel more like a cosy boudoir than a clinic and the personable staff are happy to have a chat or let you zone out and enjoy the serenity. Private, quiet and in the hands of highly skilled professionals; there is nothing left to do but relax. And relax I did. I visited on a Friday afternoon and I left vowing to treat myself there once a month.
So should we talk about the results? Why don’t we just cue some awkward selfies? Seriously, how awkward is a selfie? Obviously this is something that I will get on board with in about 5 years but until then we will have to make do with the below pictures.
Anyway, the thing to remember is that I am now IN LOVE with my eye brows. I am a so happy with them. The eyelash/eyebrow combo makes me feel like I am a) Awake b) Wearing makeup when I am not and c) a thousand times more attractive.
If you would like to feel like a Bachelor contestant or just #liveyourbestlife OR you are just looking for a new place to get your nails did, then you must check out the The Beauty Emporium. You can find them on Level 1 at 12 Ranelagh Drive, Mount Eliza, 3930. Enjoy!
