Grey be Gone!

I recently saw this hilarious video which depicted women getting ready to go out on a date compared to men. You can just imagine right? De fuzzing our legs, faces and hoo haas. Applying fake tan, bronzer or whatever else we need to disguise our white limbs. Washing, conditioning, drying, curling or straightening our hair- […]

Fringe world problems.

Having a fringe isn’t simply a choice of hairstyle it’s a choice of lifestyle. There are just some things only a chick rocking a fringe will understand: WEARING A BEANIE or hat or any headwear means we’re having a bad hair day and our fringe looks revolting. Don’t expect us to take the beanie off and […]

The Eye Brow Queen

My choice in hairstyle has pretty much remained the same since I was in utero. Long and straight with a fringe. (Except a couple of years in the 80’s when I was sporting a Taylor Dayne perm). I have 2 reasons why I continue with the Fringe Festival: 1. It’s cheaper than Botox and 2. I don’t […]

Banish the bags!

As winter grabs hold of Melbourne this week, I find myself doing a lot of decluttering. First to go were my clothes and shoes, followed by the kid’s toys. And just yesterday I managed to remove over 50 shopping bags from the kitchen cupboard. I haven’t quite grasped the notion of TAKING your shopping bags […]

Fake it till you make it

There’s this saying that goes Fake it till you make it. And although no-one wants to fake anything – except longer eye lashes – I agree that sometimes you just need to take this saying on board. Let me give you an example of how this worked for me. I have always looked upon gym […]

Crystal Clear

The other night I saw a great documentary on ABC2 titled Dying For Clear Skin. It showed us the impact acne had on a group of teenagers in the UK. In particular, the journey of 2 young boys that had suffered greatly with acne and as a last resort turned to the controversial drug Roaccutane. […]

Snobgirls

I’m sure I’ve mentioned numerous times on this blog the issues I have with my hair. Nothing dramatic, just the usual first world problems we all have. You see if I just blow dry my hair it ends up looking exactly like this. I kid you not. Remember the scene with Monica at the Bahamas? […]

Happy New Year- Billie Jean style.

Happy New Year everyone. Hope 2014 found you all happy, healthy and wise. Were you one of those people who had a whole list of resolutions that were going to signal the new you?! You know, the usual suspects – lose weight, quit smoking, eat healthy, exercise and travel more. I haven’t done any sort […]

Beauty Buzz Monday

Is it raining where you are today? Here I’m enjoying the quintessential Melbourne Summer- watching the rain drenching my clothes on the washing line, rugged up in leggings and ugg boots and drinking hot coffee while wondering where the hell the sun is! So what better way to brighten up a gloomy day than with […]

What I’m loving at the mo..

When it comes to beauty products I’m a bit of a whore- not particularly loyal to one product and quite easily led astray by promises of firming, lifting and illuminating! I was speaking to a mum at school recently who was saying that she only wears make up on special occasions. I said to her, […]
