Urban Remedy Juice Cleanse Official Lineup

I am one of those people who always thought “detox” and “cleanse” programs were a bunch of hot air. I knew that they must have a purpose for a select few people but my general belief is you should just eat well all the time and you won’t need to clear out your system. Then again, I am not a smoker or a drinker (unless it is a brightly coloured drink with a piece of fruit on the side and a little umbrella) so perhaps I am not exactly the target market anyway? When I recently found an Urban Remedy gift voucher in a gift bag I got at an event I thought to myself, “why not?”. So here it is, a review of a juice detox by a skeptic. Continue Reading

Today I want to introduce you to Courtney from the beauty blog Phyrra. If you haven’t already come across her blog than I think this guest post will give you just a tiny glimpse of how amazing she is. I call her the Makeup Tutorial Queen because her skill with multi-coloured eye looks never fails to leave me in awe. Courtney is an avid supporter of cruelty-free and indie brands, and if you want to know anything about the Indie sector she will have the answers for you. I hope you enjoy this post as she introduces us all (myself included!) to two Australian indie beauty brands.  Continue Reading

I have done a fair few posts about Laser and IPL hair removal in the past, but it has been quite sometime since I had actually had a treatment so I thought I should take another go at it and see how the treatment has changed. I had heard about The Laser Lounge quite a bit recently and knew them from being one of the fine clinics that offer DMK (yes, my beloved skincare). I figured if they are good enough to use DMK, than they are good enough to wield a laser over my armpits.

Armpits are the one area I like to get treated most because I find they are so sensitive to all other forms of hair removal. My goal is to get that area as hair free as possible, so naturally I picked that area for this review. I decided on visiting The Laser Lounge in Sydney CBD, but they have a few locations which you will find listed at the end of this post. Now for the good part … Continue Reading

Last week saw the official launch of ACPs 30 Days Of Fashion & Beauty for 2011. If you were reading this blog a year ago you may remember that I talked about some of the 2010 events. I also attended some but for some reason I lacked posting about them. I don’t know what I was thinking …. they were awesome!

I couldn’t let the weeks roll past without giving you a little snapshot of the events I think you HAVE to get involved in. But first ….

What Is ACP’s 30 Days of Fashion & Beauty

ACP Magazines in one of Australia’s leading publishers. Every week, year after year, they produce some of the biggest titles at the news stand, such as The Australian Women’s Weekly, Grazia, madison, Harper’s Bazaar, Woman’s Day, CLEO, SHOP Til You Drop, men’s style, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Dolly, Good Health, FHM, Take 5, TV Week, NW and OK!

It is always nice to see a beauty brand doing something good for mankind. For an industry that is perceived as shallow and self-serving, it sure does do a lot for the earth and the creatures that live on it.

I can’t think of two better examples than Aveda and The Body Shop. Both brands have selected April to be the month that helps the globe, on top of their already well established generosity. Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
