The Weekend Series: five visually striking indoor plants for beginners

If you aren’t enough of a responsible adult yet to care for a pet or child, there is always one option for sating your paternal instincts. A plant doesn’t talk back, nor does it cry at odd hours of the night. If you are keen to start caring for a leafy baby or two, we suggest branching (get it?) out and going with a plant that is a little bit different than your run-of-the-mill succulent. We’ve picked five plants to start with that are not only easy to care for but also fun to look at. more

Treat your skin to plant-based purity with Saya Skincare

Your skin is technically your largest organ, so it makes sense to take darn good care of it. The market is flooded with all manner of products that promise everything from eternal youth to a blemish-free face, but often these bigger brands are packed with gnarly chemicals – not to mention that a lot of cosmetic giants still test on animals (the absolute worst). Saya Skincare is here to save the day, offering a range of certified organic and plant-based products that proves nature really is the ultimate healer. more

Perfect your winter style with tips, tricks and interactive change rooms at Pacific Fair

This time of year is the perfect excuse to shop (if you needed an excuse).

Basically, we need to be able to dress for all weather patterns, and if that task sounds beyond your fashionable reach, then Pacific Fair has your back. Until May 17, shoppers can visit the centre's exclusive new interactive change rooms, located in the designer mall on level one, to help perfect their style. more
