Best new beauty products of November 2014

I don’t want to point it out but guys, it’s the end of November already. Can you smell Christmas? Can you hear those New Years fireworks? They are right around the corner so before the madness ensues I want to show you some of my new favourite products to end the season.

November isn’t a key time for product launches but I still had 31 new beauties land on my desk, most of which were colour cosmetics and nail collections. The change of season is the perfect time to get yourself some new colourful toys to use over the festive season and with Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up, you’ll probably be able to get them a lot cheaper. Oh and don’t forget to check back for our ultimate sale shopping guides for the big weekend! Continue Reading

I don’t know what it is this week but lips are getting my fullest attention right now. Is it just me or is there something awesome about a perfectly painted lip? More specifically, a bright or bold coloured one.

First it was the dramatic blue lip at Richard Chai, then I showed you red lips from Napoleon Perdis … and now it is this beautiful pink number created by Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman for the Luca Luca show at NYFW.

Bold lip, great skin, flowy hair. I think this entire look is stunning. So, what does the creator have to say about it?

“I was inspired by the designer’s color palette and chose shades and textures that would bring out the essence of the entire collection,”

“It reminded me of the sophistication of an Italian Vogue story I’d seen with girls that looked very luxurious, young and polished.  The slightly transparent yet glossy purple eye works beautifully with the lip. It’s glamorous yet approachable.”

– Gucci Westman, Global Artsitic Director for Revlon

I have been a bit of a sooky Sally ever since New York got to have the GREATEST event called Vogue Fashion’s Night Out a couple weeks ago on September 10. It is basically a massive shopping event that is held all over the city at fashion houses, boutiques, salons, spas and stores to offer everything from discounts, services and giveaways (there are simultaneous events held in other cities around the world but New York is the BIG one). One of the biggest trends and publicity stunts of Fashion Night Out is the ever elusive Continue Reading

NIVEA Cooling Sunscreen review

Aerosol sunscreen is becoming a more popular choice but in this NIVEA Cooling Sunscreen review I’m introducing you to a sunscreen feature you never knew you needed. It’s life changing and I love it, but does this one benefit counteract NIVEA’s Ultra Sport Protect Cooling Aerosol SPF50+ defects?  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading

Deciem Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner

Finding a good face cleanser shouldn’t be difficult but for me it’s one of those things I’m always looking to improve. I was recommended the Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner as an all-in-one solution for makeup removal and skin cleansing.
