What's Cheaper Than Flights from Melbourne to Paris? These Chic Spots Around the City!

As the cold, wintery months fast approach, talk of people preparing for their European summer getaways becomes louder and louder. And for those of us not going, it stirs up feelings of envy, jealousy and sadness. As we sit in our offices, rugged up in a thousand layers, Sarah and Susan are posting the Eiffel Tower on their Instagram story. Ugh. While you Google flights from Melbourne to Paris in a despair, we’re here to remind you that Melbourne is a city full of other cultures and cuisines. So,

The Desk Essentials You Need for the Ultimate Work Wellness Routine

Wellness routines most commonly hover in the hair care, skin care, makeup and self-care ritual categories. We use these routines to keep us grounded, unwind and reset when life gets a little too overwhelming…and often, the culprit is your job. We go to work every single weekday, so it’s no surprise that it’s a cause of stress for us. But what if you could establish some order amongst the chaos? Investing in products to make your life that little bit easier and establishing a work wellness routin

The Best Hair Care Products to Transform Your Locks

In recent years, haircare has moved to the forefront of the beauty industry. Gone are the days when a simple shampoo and conditioner (dare we recall the days of an all-in-one) was enough to tend to our locks. More people are realising that we take measures to look after our skin, forming multi-step routines, so why haven’t we been applying the same rules to our hair?

Certified Trichologist Chelcey Salinger tells Sitchu that scalp care is vital, highlighting its crucial role in maintaining healt

The Viral Drinks in Melbourne You Need to Know About in 2024

And Melbourne cafés are starting to get creative with their menus. Maybe it’s because they have a reputation to uphold, maybe it’s just because people are getting a little bored of the classic coffee and are itching to try something new. But local favourites and hot spots alike have been branching out of the stock standard menu and dabbling

The Best Curly Hairdressers in Melbourne to Bring Back Your Bounce

The daily struggles of a curly girl can be rough. Unlike our get up, brush and go straight-haired counterparts, curls can be a frustrating whirlwind. Whether our curls will be sitting nicely or be fitting for a bird’s nest is always an anxious question we ask ourselves before we can get in front of a mirror – and more often than not, it’s the latter.

One factor that strongly influences how well your hair sits is the cut you have. And regular hair salons simply don’t quite cut it for us and our

The Best Podcasts in Australia to Listen to in 2024

We can’t imagine what life was like before podcasts. Yes, we know the radio exists, but they’re two completely different ballparks, right? While you’d throw on any radio station when you’re in the car and have to listen to whoever’s talk show was playing, choosing a podcast to listen to is something of an art form. But with so many categories to choose from, spanning the likes of beauty, news, comedy, fashion, self-help and more, it’s so easy to get caught up and overwhelmed by how saturated the

The Best Eyebrow Studios in Melbourne to Beautify Your Brows

Without an eye for symmetry and serious talent on the tweezers, grooming and shaping your brows can be stressful work. There's the halfhearted, attemptingyl reassuring saying that 'brows are meant to be sisters, not twins,' but one wrong move and they become more like distant cousins. So, to avoid any unwanted mishaps, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. The quest for the studio that delivers the best eyebrows in Melbourne is akin to finding the perfect hairdresser; once you find the rig

The High Maintenance Hacks You Need to Do to Be a Low Maintenance Girly

There’s many a thing that I takeaway from TikTok these days – far more than I’d like to admit. While I’m smooth-brain scrolling on my daily commute or (ashamedly) getting my screen-time up before bed, I often stumble upon helpful tips, tricks and things I never knew existed, but should really be across. From female-owned Australian fashion brands to new cafes in Melbourne, social media is an endless pit of knowledge waiting to reveal itself (or be posted at the right moment). And one thing that’
