I am so excited to share with you the small range of jewellery designs that I recently launched! I chose the name Miro Miro as I am inspired by the dreamlike aesthetic of Spanish artist Joan Miró, who also happens to be my favourite artist. This first range incorporates my love of spherical shapes and bows, with nods to my Chinese heritage with the use of green and orange onyx gemstones, both of which are recurring colours in Chinese culture.
I shot the photos above whilst on holiday in Greece. They were taken on the shores of Fyriplaka beach in Milos, the most picturesque beach I have ever visited. A must visit if you’re ever in Milos!

L’Occitane’s Recharge Refill products as part of the Recycling Initiative
As part of Garden City‘s Beauty Weekend, I was asked to share which of the centre’s new beauty releases I am most excited about. I haven’t done a post like this for quite some time, but this was definitely worth coming out of the woodwork for.
French beauty and skincare brand L’Occitane has just launched a recycling initiative in partnership with TerraCycle, an organisation that focuses on reusing and up-cycling difficult-to-recycle waste. Much of the packaging used in skincare and beauty products are often difficult to recycle, and sadly ends up in landfill. L’Occitane aims to address this by providing recycle bins in-store for you to dispose of these products, which then will be sent to TerraCycle to reuse.
One of the best parts of this initiative is that L’Occitane accepts empty packaging from ANY brand! And as an added incentive to recycle, L’Occitane offers you a 10% discount on the day you drop off your empty products.
Below is a list of the types of packaging you can drop off:
- Beauty packaging such as lip balm tubes, makeup remover bottles and pumps, fragrances bottles and pumps, and deodorant sticks.
- Skin care packaging such as face mask packaging, refill pouches, and dispensers and tubes for soap, facial cleansers and body lotions.
- Hair care packaging such as pumps and caps from shampoo and conditioner bottles, hair care dispensers and containers, hair product trigger heads, and refill pouches.
This initiative is currently being piloted in all L’Occitane boutiques across Australia. Let’s show our support as I’m sure, you like myself would love to see this continue. If you drop off your empty products to the Garden City store the lovely Millie and her team will be very happy to help!
