The ‘S’ word: Why your brand needs you to stop saying sorry


We seem to be in the midst of an epidemic. As I stood in line at a local café this morning, a barista lovingly poured milk into an espresso for the woman ahead of me.

And you’d be partly right!

Beauty Haul 2016 Amber Renae best beauty products

At the end of last year, in a truly heart-breaking, early morning moment, I stupidly left my entire makeup bag tucked neatly under the chair of an aeroplane.  After countless calls and several hours, I realised that the unthinkable was true.  All my products and brushes, even the ones that were worn down to the nub, that I’d …
