Palm Beach inspiration with Adore Beauty

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_4924.JPGSurprisingly for someone who runs an online business, I do very little online shopping. Sure I book all my accommodation and flights online, but when it comes to women's fashion, beauty or gift giving I've still been old school heading into a bricks and mortar store to either get the right fit or urgency of having it in my hot little hand right now.

However, when I'm travelling I love to travel light and fast with only carryon luggage, which makes shopping for homewares (my favourite) very limiting. 7kg of luggage for a week's wardrobe including business essentials like a laptop doesn't leave much room for souvenirs.

Recently alluxia visited Palm Beach to scour the region for the best accommodation and unique getaways. Watch this space, with our new collection launching in 2016... The northernmost suburb of Sydney is like no other, on one side marvel at the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean and the other, the calming waters of Pittwater. It is simply a world away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney CBD, just 40 km away.


My whirlwind trip of Palm Beach included sunset drinks & dinner at Barrenjoey House, a walk along the foreshore, breakfast at The Boathouse Palm Beach, plus a little browsing in Newport. Standout stores included the luxe Manyara Home with incredible tribal inspired interiors and Beachside Homewares for your entire kitchen needs and extensive range of candles including the local Palm Beach Collection. I was about to purchase one to remind me of my Palm Beach escape when I realised it was simply too heavy to bring back with me.

Beautiful Palm Beach Collection was created following a childhood spent growing up by the sea in Palm Beach by brother and sister duo, Kirsten Walker and Mike Grey, to create a nostalgic collection that evokes all that is magical about Sydney's breathtaking coastal landscape.

So on my return, I promptly went online to Australian owned company Adore Beauty and purchased the Palm Beach Collection Coconut & Lime scented soy candle and White Rose & Jasmine soy candle. The site was easy to navigate, both candles were the same price as the retail stores and best of all there is free shipping! Definitely saved me lugging these candles home with me.


I love receiving parcels and this one arrived super fast and even had free samples/treats inside! I was very tempted to shop the rest of their travel range which includes a great range of travel beauty products and travel candles including Aesop, Clinique, Lumira and more that would make great gift ideas this Christmas. If you're still last minute shopping, you can still order online at Adore Beauty until 22 December and choose express post to ensure you'll have gifts under the Christmas tree.

The alluxia head office is now smelling all seaside luxe with the dreamy scent of Coconut & Lime reminding us of Palm Beach getaways and summer holidays ahead.
