Hey guys! It’s time for another blog post, woo! So if you follow me on Instagram (@_stephanielange_) and Snapchat (stephilalalange) you will know that yesterday I got the opportunity to go to Eastland in Melbourne for the launch of the new beauty precinct ‘The Beauty Garden’!
The Beauty Garden is a stunning space which is home to everything health and beauty. Its luxurious and open layout encourages you to stay and enjoy the experience of shopping, rather than running in, and then straight out. It made me feel like I was at a destination dedicated to beauty, and I didn’t want to leave!
The Beauty Garden boasts some of the most iconic Australian and international beauty brands including: Napoleon Perdis , MECCA Cosmetica, Crabtree & Evelyn, Kiehl’s, Pressed Juice, Inglot, Jacqueline Evans Skincare and Ikou!
Eastland is also the only retail destination in Melbourne’s East that has every major Australian retailer and supermarket in one place, along with valet parking, parcel valet, guest lounge and dining concierge. Um… is that luxury or what!?
Ok now let’s look at some of my pictures from my time at the The Beauty Garden!
See this garden on the roof? This marvel is called ‘The Canopy’. Eastland has collaborated with the internationally acclaimed artist, Rebecca Louise Law, to create a permanent, inverted garden of 150,000 hand-made preserved flowers, which are suspended above the new Beauty Garden.
Here’s the Canopy from underneath. It’s so beautiful!
Ok now, let’s look at some MAKEUP! Here I present to you the eyeshadow table from Inglot! So many pretty colours, I want them all!
Feast your eyes upon these gorgeous blush shades from NARS! You can buy NARS products inside Mecca Cosmetica, which is of course located right in the heart of The Beauty Garden!
Ok, so technically this is not a makeup product, but Pressed Juices can also be found within The Beauty Garden! Why? Well because they make you look beautiful from the inside out of course! Pressed Juices are unpasteurized, free from preservatives, artificial sugars and additives. Get one of these down you a day, and the doctor will well and truly stay away.
Next I visited the Jacqueline Evans Skincare stall, and met the founder Jacqueline herself! Agh! Jacqueline Evans Skin Care philosophy is simple: ‘ – First Do No Harm – Healing Power of Nature – Identify and Treat the Cause – Heal the Whole Person – Physician as Teacher – Prevention is the Best Cure.’ Ok… so it’s not that simple. Jacqueline Evans Skin Care philosophy is actually based on the writings of Hippocrates, the father of medicine! Needless to say, Jacqueline knows her stuff. I got a few products to try out, and I am SO excited about it! I love the idea of natural skincare, as it’s true that whatever you put onto your skin, it absorbs. It is our largest organ after all! If you’re in Eastland ‘The Beauty Garden’, definitely pop in to Jacqueline Evans Skincare. Hopefully Jacqueline will be there herself and give a run down on their products, they truly sound gorgeous – and good for you too!
And here I am again, still at the Jacqueline Evans Skincare stall! Having a great time by the looks of it! So that’s all folks! If you want to see some of the products I picked up from The Beauty Garden, head over to my Instagram (@_stephanielange_)! I’ll be posting some of my new goodies on there. If you’re in Melbourne, make sure to visit Eastland, and especially The Beauty Garden! Take a photo of the Canopy while you’re there and tag me on Instagram so I can see it! It’s so beautiful! Alrighty guys, i’m off! Love ya! Stephi x
