My current affliction: Creepy Waiter Syndrome

I had a friend who used to say that dilemma was my middle name. Somehow, I would always manage to have one. I was the flame and they were the moths. It was magnetic, I tell you. Well, it so seems that I have another one. And this one, I’m sure I’ve created all on […]

If you’re unfamiliar with Hourglass Cosmetics, well I suggest you get familiar, especially with the following product.  New to Australia, this range of make-up is created with a focus on skin care, which is a big plus considering we have now become so time poor.

Adriana Lima on Vogue España

Usually I try not to fall victim to the green-eyed monster, but I must admit, when I came across these pictures I was slightly miffed. Well, more than a little slightly.

The first thing I noticed about the Feijoa Lime, triple-milled offering from MOR is the smell. It is divine. Seriously, I had it in my hand and was just sniffing it all day, like a woman possessed.

Review: Estée Lauder Perfectionist [CP+] Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler

I have to say, as someone of a relatively young age, my skin was ill prepared to test the “deep wrinkle filling” abilities of Estée Lauder’s Perfectionist range.  Basically, I had no wrinkles that needed filling (although I can see them trying to beat down the door, mind you – just waiting to pounce). With […]

Review: A’kin Purifying Facial Masque

When I saw that this contained witch hazel, I must admit, I was one happy camper. I remember using witch hazel when I was younger and loved its ability to refresh my face and tone my skin. This masque also contains a combination of cedarwood and lemongrass essential oils which will help to control the […]

Don’t you just love… Going out for big, lazy breakfasts?

It’s got to be one of the best feelings in the world right? Waking up in the morning (or the afternoon, whatevs, no judgement here) and whether planned, or spontaneous, head down to a café for some morning nosh that always ends up more decadent than you would otherwise encounter. I think it’s the fact […]
