One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

It is not important to have a ‘day’ cream and a ‘night’ cream, nor should you care whether you use the day cream at night or vice versa.

Be wary of people telling you have the miracle cure for anything, particularly if they are behind a cosmetics counter.

Buy cosmetics that are labelled cruelty free.  Always.

You cannot lose weight, gain confidence, be empowered by using any product that has a the name of a fruit and the word “detox” or “slimming” on its label.

Shows that show people losing weight, making-over their kitchens, gardens or life are for entertainment and do not represent what goes on in real life.  Think of them as real-time cartoons, using real people.

Those tossers who live next door to you may end up as your bank manager/police officer/driving instructor.

If you want to wear a hat, then do so.

Good, no GREAT, clothes can be found in second-hand stores.  The same is true about accessories, and home wares.
