Pantene Beautiful Lengths Hair Donation 7

Spring/Summer is on it’s way for us lovely Australian’s so it is time to shed your Winter hairstyle. I know you don’t want those long locks weighing you down in the summer breeze, and luckily I know a place who could make good use of that hair. Monday, 11 November 2013 is the beginning of National Donate Your Hair Week, the second annual event to be run as part of Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths campaign. I did the chop last year and you saw just how easy it was. It wasn’t just easy, it was an honour. My hair was handed to a very sick complete stranger and it couldn’t have made me happier. Does that sound like something you would like to be a part of?

Taking part in National Donate Your Hair Week is easy and it would make Zooey Deschanel very happy. Honestly. Here is what she had to say:

“Pantene is helping to provide confidence and beautiful real-hair wigs to women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment; you can’t put a price on that. I know Australia and New Zealand have received 5,000 ponytails so far which will make a huge difference to many women with cancer, and I hope we can surpass that number this year.”

New Release Beauty Favourites August 2013

*BLINK* Did you see that? I think it was August. It just flew right past my face! It has been a jam packed month for me with the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo taking place, as well as a calendar full of beauty launches and media events. I have played my way through nearly 175 new products that launched in August, and that is excluding the fabulous new products I discovered at the expo. As always it was incredibly difficult to pick out the products that truly captured my attention. I have to say the month of August really did show off just how innovative the beauty market really is.

I hope you find something new to discover in this months best new beauty product launches. Continue Reading

Lisa The Vegetarian

At the beginning of 2013 I had a light bulb moment that resulted in me making the decision to live a vegan lifestyle. I announced my decision to you and I was overwhelmed with support. I have been keeping you updated on social media but now at just over 6 months since the change I would like to update you on some of the things I have noticed.

My motivation for becoming vegan was definitely the animal cruelty angle, but like most who become vegan it is hard to ignore the health benefits that come with it. I know vegans who do it purely for the health reasons and that is great for them, but for me any benefit to my health is just a bonus.  Continue Reading


Last September Pantene launched their Beautiful Lengths campaign in Australia and asked Australian women to donate their hair to those who are battling cancer. My mother has been fighting cancer for almost 5 years so I know first hand the pain and suffering women go through when dealing with the illness. I told you more about my story in my donation post but needless to say I was happy to chop my hair off. Today I am excited to share with you where my hair went after it left my head.

Over the course of just a few months, the Beautiful Lengths Australia campaign received over 4000 ponytails from kind Australians. All that hair, including mine, was sent to wig makers who had the tough job of sorting, cleaning, dying and creating wigs. The result so far has been 500 spectacular wigs that are being distributed to cancer patients through Look Good Feel Better, an amazing non for profit who runs beauty workshops for cancer patients.

Last week (June 18) I was invited to be one of three guests to present the very first wigs. Look Good Feel Better, in partnership with Pantene, held a special Beautiful Lengths workshop for women who are doing it tough with their cancer treatments. Women aged from their 20s to 70s, all at different stages in their treatment and fight against the disease taking over their lives, and all incredibly strong and beautiful. I couldn’t have been more honoured to be part of something. Continue Reading
