being grateful for the people we share our lives with

I can’t believe it’s May already! In Australia, Mother’s Day is coming up – a great time to reflect on what family means to us and how we can celebrate the people we share our lives with. While creating gorgeous natural skincare is a passion that drives me each day, it would be nothing without the beautiful people who surround me. My brilliant husband of 19 years, Juan, is an integral part of the brand; people may say you can’t mix love and business, but we seem to make it work! He inspires me, supports me and brings laughter to the day. We might have a different viewpoint or way of doing things, but it has been amazing to work closely every day with the man I love so much. We now have three beautiful children, who are very much part of the Ere Perez family. They bring so much joy! They come to visit me in the office after school, they love to try on our natural makeup for fun (yes, you can make …

But there can be too much tech. And many of us find ourselves virtually tethered to our devices, awaiting the next text, social media update or call. Nomophobia is the fear of being without your mobile phone, and, yes, it’s a very real issue. If you find yourself a little nervous or twitchy when your phone isn’t accessible, you may have nomophobia. According to Psychology Today, many students in both high school and college suffer from a clinging reliance to their cell phones.

my journey into ethical fashion

Besma Whayeb is an ethical lifestyle blogger and freelance writer. Her blog, Curiously Conscious, has become a hub for a new generation of conscious consumers, focusing on natural and organic beauty, ethical fashion and homewares, healthy food, wellness and eco travel. “My change to living an ethical lifestyle came about after experiencing culture shock in Paris. I’d moved to Paris as part of my degree and had fallen in love with the culture; I love the way Parisians do things – simple, understated, elegant. I felt like my cheap t-shirts weren’t quite up to scratch, and I’d already turned vegetarian, was eating lots of organic food, so I decided to apply the same inquisitive eye to my clothes.

hydrate or moisturise?

To achieve healthy and smooth skin, it is essential to moisturise and hydrate. However, not many of us know that moisturising and hydrating, although often used interchangeably, are actually not the same thing. Hydration comes from within, it refers to the amount of water in the skin. The purpose of hydration is to build moisture from the deepest layers of the skin to keep it radiant, firm and healthy. The same as when we drink water, we do this to hydrate, not moisturise our bodies, right? 

skin routine for men

Our newly launched botanical skincare range is for everyone! We have designed the perfect products to be versatile enough for women and men’s unique skins. Today, everyone is  becoming more aware of the benefits of taking care of our largest organ, our skin.  In the past, some may of thought of a skincare routine as a waste of time, or simply – not for them. The last few years have seen a growth in skincare ranges for men, which we celebrate! Male skin is just as deserving of attention and special care; exposure to weather conditions, pollution, shaving, all of this can result in neglected skin that is crying out for a good clean and intensive moisture. You may know someone in your life who could really benefit from giving more care to their skin. The beauty of our skincare is it suits everyone. You can share your products with a loved one, or inspire them to get their own! Like any skin, prevention is better than cure when it comes to establishing a routine …

green everyday

Chantal Chalita is an environmental engineer who found a way to do something good for the world, uniting her marketing skills with her passion for the environment in the “GREEN ME” Blog. She encourages people to live a greener and sustainable lifestyle through small changes in their daily life. She does it in a very characteristic and attractive way that makes it completely different from any other blogs. “That’s why I try to give you practical tips to be a little more environmental without changing your lifestyle, because I’ve realized that being an extremist does not lead to a lasting change. The first and most important thing is to become conscious, and by this I mean to know what am I doing? and why am I doing it?
