Changes to Domestic Parcel Post

Hullo! A couple of changes to the way I charge domestic parcel post.

Australia Post made a few changes to their domestic post charges a couple of times already this year (as well as previous years). I, however, did not take these price increases into account in my shipping cost and have had the same charges for past 2 years. Unfortunately though, I have to increase the shipping charges slightly as a response to Australia Post’s increases.

Domestic regular postage and handling for parcels weighing up to 500g will change from $8.50 to $8.95.

In the past, for all the My Teeny-Tiny Dolls® purchases, postage service included regular post, signature on delivery + extra cover. In order to keep postal charges under control, all domestic parcels weighing up to 500g will be shipped via regular post at $8.95 only. Customers who wish to have the additional services of signature on delivery and extra cover (insurance) can request for it and I will send a PayPal invoice to cover the extra cost.

I advise to add signature on delivery + extra cover if by any chance your postal service isn’t up to par, you are not home for deliveries or you have had misfortunes in the past of parcels going missing or damaged, I atleast recommend signature on delivery.

Want to know your item has been delivered and signed for? Signature on Delivery captures a signature of the recipient once the item has been delivered.”

Price $2.95 extra.

For valuable items, extra cover is a great additional postal service to have.

“Sending something valuable or important? Extra Cover provides you with cover for the specified value of your item (up to $5,000) if your item is lost or damaged while being carried by Australia Post.”

Price $1.50 per $100 of your item’s value (or part thereof). For items valued over $300, signature on delivery must be added.

If you know you have a great postal service in your area or you have your letters and parcels delivered to a P.O. Box, then regular postage should suffice. All regular postage includes tracking so if the parcels do go on a detour, it is easier to track and I can lodge an enquiry with Australia Post. Do note though, if parcel is lost or damaged, I recommend to have signature on delivery + extra cover.

All other shipping information (international) can be found in the Policies tab of my bigcartel shop.

Thanks for your continued support.

Wantable March Make-up Collection

Loving my latest Wantable Make-Up Collection Box order.


This collection is part of the March line-up. I was going to skip March’s subscription, but saw all the goodies that were in other subscribers’ boxes – like the eyeshadow palette – that I had to have it!

In this box I got 4 items with retail value of US$82.50 in total. Each Wantable collection box: make-up, accessories, intimates and fitness is US$40.00 + shipping (which is only US$10 to Australia) or US$36.00 if you are a monthly subscriber. To find out how it all works, read my previous blog about it here.


I am Loving the Frankie Rose 5 Shade Eyeshadow Palette – Down to Earth. The great thing about Wantable is, not only do you get to choose your preferences, they also have a comment section at the end you can add additional info you want. For example, you can tell then what you got last month, so they don’t double up. I also let them know that we’re opposite seasons here in Australia so they can take into account colour palette that’s suitable for our season. And also, their customer service is fantastic as you can e-mail them with anything additional you may have forgotten to write in your comment section or any special request: like, I really wanted the eye shadow palette.

I am loving the colours in the “Down to Earth” palette: java, rust, pout, vine and sparkle – great for my olive skin tone and for Autumn. The other 3 items are fabulous too (although I do already have similar shades of nail polish like the Bodyography’s Air Fairy Nail Lacquer – will just re-gift it). Loving the Sorme Lip Thick Plumping Lip Gloss in “Barely” and the Cattiva Precision Eye Liner.

Highly recommend Wantable and the Make-Up & Accessories Collections. The Fitness collection is not yet available in Australia and the Intimates collection I’m yet to try.
