SPOTLIGHT ON: SARAH JEAN

posted by Cass Catsoulis October 26, 2017 0 comments

This afternoon we’re catching up with Sarah Jean Baker; founder of Sarah Jean. Sarah is the amazing Brisbane-based #girlboss, who has created a range of vegan and cruelty free false eyelashes and a glue that is applied with a mascara like brush. If you’re anything like me and have the shortest eyelashes in the world (#seriously) & not very handy with applying the glue to your lashes then Sarah Jean is for you!

Thank you for chatting to us Sarah! Firstly, when did Sarah Jean start and how?

It’s my pleasure. SARAH JEAN launched in March, 2016 after more than a year of R&D. I was applying party lashes for my sister’s hen’s party and it was messy…. I had sticky fingers, smudged eye shadow and I thought ‘there has to be an easier way’. So that really started the research phase to see what was on the market that made false eyelash application easy. After extensive research, I saw there was an opportunity to develop something – what that would be, I was still to work out at that point. Continue Reading

I blame Carrie Bradshaw for my unrealistic love affair with Jimmy Choo. In case you missed the whole SATC fabulousness (series box set junkie over here) Jimmy Choo is one of the most iconic shoe designers in the world!

‘Embrace your inner German’

posted by Emmy O'Neill September 28, 2017 0 comments

Any tagline that reads ’embrace your inner German’ is always going to get me across the line. Growing up I used to hide my love of sauerkraut, spätzle, leberwurst, semmelknödel (we called bread balls) and pretzels… They were not the kind of foods that the other kids found ‘cool’ or ‘exotic’… And whist sauerkraut is on trend as a 2017 super gut food; I can honestly say I have been eating that fermented cabbage stuff for 32 years!
