Ceeeeeeeelebrate good times, C’MON! Yes, I’m so happy it’s summer that I’m actually singing. Summer in Australia is rather beautiful.

It’s always a celebration in summer and what better what to celebrate than by winning prizes?

Rose Gold Colour Trend

I’m absolutely obsessed with rose gold right now. It’s by far the prettiest shade of jewellery I’ve seen but the trend in rose gold bling has now spilled over to other fashion items, beauty products and even homewares. This trend is going to be around for a while to come so I’m stocking up on everything I can find. Here are the gorgeous rose gold items I’ve found so far, plus my wish list of more pinky golden goodness.  Continue Reading

VS Sassoon 2000W Hairdryer

Do you own a hair dryer? It sounds like a ridiculous question but after briefly polling some of my friends I found out that many of them didn’t have one. They owned other heat styling tools – straighteners, tongs, hot rollers ….. but not a hair dryer? It intrigued me and had me curious about what hair dryer I would recommend to someone looking to buy their first. My lightbulb thought was to go back to basics and review some new entry-level hair dryers, and I’m starting with the 2000W hairdryer from VS Sassoon’s Luminous Collection. Continue Reading

New York Fashion Week 2014

We’ve seen the incredible outfits worn to New York Fashion Week thanks to the many talented street style photographers that now rule the fashion world. It’s a topic that interests me but I always find myself asking, “why don’t you snap her nails?” or “where are the cool hairstyles?”. I questioned whether anyone who attends fashion ever did anything with their beauty look so I took it upon myself to go to New York Fashion Week and get the answers myself. This is the result ….. street style beauty.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to ever take a focus on street style beauty but it’s definitely lacking in the blog arena. Yes, the majority of the fashion crowd don’t brush their hair and they don’t really wear makeup but not all of them are like that. I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I’m going to show you the cool hair colours and styles I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York. Continue Reading

NYFW Beauty Products

I love travelling but for me the worst part is packing (and unpacking, to be honest). I’ve given you a few tips about packing previously but what on earth does a girl pack for New York Fashion Week? It’s a week of post-summer warm weather in a humid city, running around all parts of town, and glitzy fashionistas at swinging soirees. My beauty bag has to carry everything I need to survive the week and even after all these years of attending Australian Fashion Week I still have no idea what to pack until the very last minute.

I try to take miniatures of all my beauty products where possible and I try to avoid sachets or little packets, where possible. I recommend collating deluxe samples when they’re available as gift with purchase offers or as perks from your favourite beauty store (Sephora, I’m looking at you!). These are the beauty products that accompanied me to NYFW 2014.

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
