This year I will be wishing Santa brings peace. It seems such a big wish at the moment with so much happening in the world. No matter what your views are, where you stand on the thing we have come to refer to as terrorism, one word pins hope; peace.
I am no expert however I do believe the showing of love at a time when hope, peace and happiness are at far reach for so so many can be as simple as sitting next to someone in need and being present. Keeping an open mind and listening more than saying. This is our little mantra.
The world is filled with many judgements. Lately, I have used the term, "No words!" ...
So as a business person going about my everyday tasks I consider what it is that keeps us a float in this time of massive change. And while we know fab products, excellent add on services (if we do say so) helps, it is 'people' and a true love for connection and care. So with this in mind, Team LFB have selected some gift choices that will demonstrate your desire to appreciate your loved ones.
No, we have not gone into the business of food (albeit it has crossed our minds) ... Have you ever thought to place a delicious Fine Jewellery Ring on a festive plate for your loved one to find (not eat!) or wanted to give a gift that she can keep, marking the year that was? Here's a few low fat options;
There are rings in store and online from $89 all the way up and fine Jewellery to suit every taste and personality style ...
If you like to give the 'Gift of an Experience' our Gift Cards come with a Secret Santa bonus of a Complimentary Make Up Session (valued at $89) ...
AND (yes, there is more!) when you spend over $200 on a Gift Card for a lucky loved one they will receive an extra SSB (Secret Santa Bonus not a beverage ;)) of the Make Up Session AND a Hair Styling Session! That's an extra experience thrown in with a value of $178 (You're welcome - smiling!) not to mention the additional fun.
Candles, they represent calm for me. And this year as always we have our Signature Candles in the uplifting scent all LFB'ers love and our limited edition Christmas fragrance; both large sizes now $30
Sometime ago we introduced Vani-T Cosmetics to our Collection. This Australian made, natural mineral make up is terrific for all skin types (including my teenager skin at 42) and wears so well, it needs no touching up during the day. Ok, your lippy will, however that's from smiling at everyone in your pretty dress.
Remember to book in for your festive make over (as stunning Charlotte did) before heading out to your Christmas parties. Hair Styling $89. Make Up $89. Bookings essential on 9471 9086 ...
If you love a little hit of Colour for Christmas, here are two kits to set you off into a festive spin ...
Bronzer with Highlighter included, Lip Glaze in a fab colour and a quality Contouring Brush (we will show you how to use it!) Valued at $130. Now available for $80 (save $48)
AND or (I know we are cheeky) for the LFB'er who loves eye makeup and dressing up, here is the go to, Bat the Eyes (Marilyn Monroe style) gift ...
Eyeshadows x2 (in complimentary colours) with Eyelashes to boot and a quality Brush (Valued at $116). Now available for $65 (save $51)
As we wrap up this message (do like a pun) remember we would love to help your loved one select something special to mark the year that has been while giving joy and hope to the new one ahead. If you have a secret wish of your own that LFB can help deliver, know we will treasure the business.
Thank you for another wonderful calendar year filled with new and old friends, LFB'ers. Let peace be with you and your families as we head into the festivities of late November, December and beyond.
We have our Team LFB Christmas party this coming Saturday (if you see us out, we apologise up front!) so anyone visiting me this Sunday (oh note; we are now opening at 10 through to 5 on Sundays up until Christmas) please be extra cheery!
With a Mrs Claus like smile and a love of the above ...

PS: Thank you to Nash & Co Maylands for letting us eat I mean shoot in their fab new place. Welcome to the hood.
PPS: Just in case you missed our last blog here's a link as there is so much to consider for Christmas gift giving when shopping local here in Maylands.
So for 5 minutes we all got a taste of what being a TV presenter is like. Some got nervous, some put on the strong suit and another may have put on her sexy voice. We will let you be the judge of who was who!
On a Friday morning before 10, well in fact 8am all of us were fresh and fabulous to face up to a rather large camera in our space, lighting, a fluffy thing for sound and Le'V on the coffee, a few of them ...
Of course seasoned host, Hayley rallies up perfectly poised and ready for action. "Girls, you will be fine!" Fine, alright ... Take 10.
Let's hide backstage ... I say ... (forgetting I am microphone'd up and can run but they can still hear me!)
Oh and then there was ... LFB'er, Charmaine who joined us for the morning. A little bit of Paris in Perth ... (Au s'il vice plait)
Here's some more sneaky peek pics of behind the scenes;
That's enough, we don't want to give away too much about the segment ... rather we'd love you to watch it and share it with your like minded friends. We want to meet more women who would enjoy what we do.
Would you like to host a private girls night at Look Feel Be? You and your friends could enjoy an experience as Hayley and Charmaine did. What is involved, we hear you say. Get a group of your faves together (up to 10 positive women) and book a date. We can do morning tea's or afternoon tea's (with a little more in the tea cup) or an after hours evening time to suit you and the theme you wish to set. Team LFB will do the rest.
We will share our knowledge freely to style you, highlighting bodyshape tips and techniques in dressing to maximise your personal image. We will do your make up, hair with a vintage flair. It is a lot of fun. Ask us for more information. As the host you gain a $70 credit to use in store as a thank you. Call to book your date 08 9471 9086 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
So many new garments and stunning jewellery pieces are landing daily ... as the season starts to change, not to mention our Racing Hat Collection due shortly! There is plenty to party about when you book your girly night with us.
Oh and as I research my upcoming trip to Europe (my first ever at the end of this week) keep an eye on our Facebook for my outfits along the way and Instagram for sights.
Big smiles from me and even bigger ones from Le'V as she gets to party harder with Team LFB.
I will be away when the show goes to air (sound so profess). Leave us a comment with feedback when you see it, be kind!
Au revoir ...
PS: Big shout out of love, respect and appreciation for my colleagues xxx
August tends to be almost an annoying speed bump for me (Caroline here typing) ... as I chant for my favourite time of the year, Spring. While it is not wise to wish time away, there is definitely an excitement brewing as I know it's near.
At this time of the year the fashion industry leads us to shake off winter woolies (I might add that my fingers ache from the cold as I type, so we acknowledge there is 'still' a need!) and freshen up your white legs to get set for summer.
To inspire you towards Spring, Stephanie has been busy designing a new capsule collection that you can dress up and down. Here's a look ...
I had to beg her to model the collection, yet I think you will agree she looks stunning. All of the WA made garments are in store now and online. And the sizing we are proud to say is perfect. Buy with ease online if you are reading from afar.
When selecting the sheer deco fabric on the left I have to admit we may have both rolled ourselves up in it. It is so luxurious!
When I asked Steph on her first day back from leave (she was a tad happy as captured in this image) how she felt seeing the collection come to fruition she said; "It is very exciting and a nervous time to see a range you've created come to life. It is awesome to be able to share what has been in my head yet it's scary as I hope others will like it as much as we do!" "I know the styles are flattering and I do hope our LFB'ers love the fit, the fabrics and the combos."
To pair back with the collection of limited edition dresses we have new jewels ... here's just a hint of them;
OH and make up, it's that time of the year to refresh, SO we are offering everyone that leaves us a comment on our blog (fab feedback please) a COMPLIMENTARY mini Make up session (valued at $69) in August - during the week (does not include weekends). Bookings essential as places are limited. Call 9471 9086 ...
Are you free on Tuesday the 18th from 6.00pm? We need some noses on the job to help us select 3 scents from 6 for something we will be launching closer to Christmas. If you have a nose that knows a winning formulation, please join us at LFB HQ.
Finally, at this time when all business large and especially small are feeling a pinch, we thank you for your continued love of us weeeee women in business doing our best to make a difference in an everyday way.
Oh and do keep an eye on our website as new garments are being placed on it almost daily.
With a smile ...
Caroline & Team LFB x
