RY to Donate $5 From Every Order – I Ordered!

Originally published in Onya Magazine.

The generous offers of donation to the QLD Flood Appeal continue to roll in from Australian beauty brands across the country, with (Recreate Yourself) being the latest.

The online beauty store company, who are based in South-East Queensland, are offering to donate $5 from every order to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal until 4.30pm on Friday January the 21st.

“We understand that sometimes it’s not always easy to find the money to donate to charity no matter how worthy the cause. So we see this as an opportunity for to make the donation on the customers behalf. Our customers have supported our Queensland business from the beginning and it’s time for us all to get behind the victims of this tragedy. So, if you were thinking of making a purchase we urge you to make it while this Donation Period exists,” said Bradley Carr and James Patten, RY Directors.

You won’t be lost for options with RY stocking an impressive array of premium brands such as Dermalogica, ghd, Clarins, Payot and Redken across all departments; skin care, hair care and makeup and beauty tools. Free shipping within Australia, a 100% price match guarantee and live help chat will ease you into online shopping if you’re a newbie, or impress the socks off you if you’re experienced.

So, get shopping ladies. Now seems like the perfect time to replace that old hairdryer, or get some skincare sorted for the coming year – the options are endless.

Good Onya, RY!


And replace that old hairdryer I did! That old hairdryer is months thrown out and I’ve been leeching off other people since. Not cool Holly, time to grow up and get yourself a hairdryer that’s serious about the business of, well, drying hair.

I had always heard about the wonders of the Parlux range of hairdryers, and after a quick Twitter-poll (the only way to make decisions these days) it was confirmed for me – Parlux are the shiz.

I ended up deciding on the Parlux 3800 Eco Friendly Supercompact Ceramic and Ionic in Black. Click on the link to read all the ‘under the hood deets’ – it sounds impressive!

So, if like me, you were putting off purchasing a beauty item, any at all, I would really recommend you to order through by 4.30pm today! The website is easy to navigate, the product options are endless and the ordering process was super simple and easy, which is how online shopping should be! Not to mention $5 from your order will go directly to the QLD Flood Appeal – what could be better!

I’m so excited for this baby to arrive, I’m gunna be a blow pro!

Beauty News: MOR to donate 25% of online sales to QLD Flood Appeal

The QLD and northern NSW floods have taken lives and livestock, devastated entire towns and caused billions of dollars worth of material damage, and an unquantifiable amount of emotional damage. As you could imagine, the people and businesses of QLD/NSW need all the help that they can get.

I am so thrilled that Australian brands, such as the amazingly beautiful and effective beauty brand MOR, are doing their bit and donating profits to the Flood Appeal. I’m happy to share these details from MOR with you:

MOR will be donating 25% off all E-Boutique sales to The QLD Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal, for sales from 12 January 2011 until 13 February 2011.

What a perfect way to purchase something that gives more than the material joy gained by the receiver. That’s shopping with a conscious!

Many other Australian brands are participating in similar offers. To view the deals from popular Australian fashion retailers such as Witchery, Mimco and Cue, pop over to Nikki from Styling You who has kindly listed them all for our knowledge. Thanks Nikki!
