roses in New Farm park

wow what a time we are in, a new reality.

pink roses in New Farm Park

I write this from under a rose canopy in New Farm Park, watching as a gardener delicately prunes the rose bushes nearby. a few people stroll past in the distance, the birds are chirping, & the weather is warm yet breezy.

after recently opening the new studio in California Lane, I am surprised to find myself here, yet hey, it’s abundantly beautiful.

an update, dunkle authentic will now purely be available online & through our dear stockists, the studio will reopen publicly again from June. the tough, yet safest decision for now given the intimate nature of makeup & skincare. luckily, we too are abundant with beautiful raw materials, fresh lipsticks, foundations, brushes, & face oils.

at the core of dunkle authentic is the idea of inspiring feel-good moments. as each of us grapple with the decisions we need to make, the plans we need to change, it’s a time to take care of ourselves more than ever. below are some ideas for self-care. 

try meditation with the Simply Being app. choose between sounds of rain, the ocean (my fav), or a forest brook paired with a gentle guided meditation.

practice yoga at home. our Brisbane friends at SoBa are now offering live streams of their yoga, pilates, & barre classes (feel the burn, baby) through their Instagram at @wearesoba. 

brew a cup of peppermint tea & give an old friend or loved one a call.

enjoy a slow face massage:

    1. after a long bath or shower, take 4 drops of face oil into the palm of your hand 
    2. gently press & circle your hands together to warm up the oil
    3. close your eyes & start to massage your face in a circular motion, applying gentle pressure with your finger tips. focus on the cheek bones, temples, forehead, then lightly pat under your eyes
    4. finish with a big, deep breath in, & slowly back out

through this new reality, perhaps there is space for much needed feel-good moments. moments to pause, to connect, to plan.
