Cancer Wellness at The Ice House Ballina

In 2013, as many of you know, I was diagnosed with cancer. It isn’t something I mention all that often on the blog. The Beautiful Truth was started as a distraction from being sick. My blog has always been my escape. My cancer free space. It was and still is my place to talk about stuff that is frivolous and a bit of fun.  Yet, when the Ice House in Ballina contacted me to review their cancer wellness centre, my interest was pipped. This was something I could talk about on the blog and hopefully help someone! When you’ve cancer, it is a time in your life that your energy levels…

The Thyroid, The Cervix and The Lovely Baby

It has taken me a long time to sit down and try to put this story into words. There are so many reason why I have avoided writing this post. Firstly I have absolutely zero medical experience just my own journey.Which made me a little nervous about sharing medical information. Secondly this story, while a part of my life and something the made me stronger, I kinda want to forget some of it. Finally, I actually didn’t know how I was going to document this story. How was I going to detail what happened and not over complicate things? There is just so much to tell! However, overtime even though…

Bridal Beauty Preparation

Over the past several weeks, quite a number of you have sent me messages asking could I detail what beauty preparation I did in the run up to the wedding. So many people find that the world of beauty throws so much at them in the run up to their big day, that they don’t know what treatments would actually benefit them the most. There is so many treatments out there, and to be fair while there are many wonderful treatments, there are many that are just looking to capitalise on the bridal market. Every woman wants to look her best at all times, but when it comes to your…

A very Special year

I’m not normally one for the personal posts, but considering the year I’ve had, I think that somethings are worth looking back on. Every year brings it’s own ups and downs, but this year has been a fairly spectacular one. 2014 started out on a pretty bum note, as I was still unwell, and faced into another stint in hospital. However, as clichéd as it sounds, what doesn’t  kill you makes you stronger, and I can honestly say this year has brought about some really amazing things. I finally got the all clear health wise. The blog has gone from strength to strength thanks to you guys and I was not only…

Finally some good news

I have written and deleted this post countless time this week. I have debated if I should even write this post, as so many people have been blogging about their own hard experiences, but I decided that as most of you already knew the bad news, it was only right to share the good news. As many of you already know, last April I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. Not the worst type of cancer you can get, but enough to knock you off your feet and take the wind out of your sails for a while. You might have seen my lovely Frankenstein scar on my neck in pictures,…

Thank You

Around this time of year many of us find ourselves reflecting on the year that’s past. For me 2013 was a big year. It was a year when the unexpected happened. 2013 was the year that saved my life. As many of you already know, I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer earlier this year. I was never hugely religious, but I strongly believe someone up there was looking out for me as my cancer was beginning to turn into a nasty piece of work, but they caught it just in time. While things are going to be ok, I have a little bit more to go through. After Christmas I…

Pick me up Haul

So I have been stuck in the house for nearly 2 weeks recovering from my latest surgery. I was going out of my mind. So this morning when I woke up I decided that it was time to look a little bit more human and make my way into town for a little treat. Credit card in hand I headed for Henry street and did a little bit, not a lot, of damage. Bobby Brown Creamy Concealer Kit and Corrector                                                            …

Out of something bad, must come something good

Hi All, So, why another beauty blog you ask. Seriously, is the internet not already full of beauty blogs? How many times can we read about the latest mascara launch, face cream or long lasting lipstick? I have always been a makeup fiend. For as long as I can remember, I have loved nothing more than spending time roaming the aisles of Boots or arriving hours early before a flight at the airport so I can grab a beauty bargain in the duty free. I love nothing more than lying in bed every night reading beauty blogs or watching youtube tutorials and hauls. Beauty blogs are always my go to…
