Posts in Hollywood Fashion Tape

Despite my best efforts to look after the clothes I purchase, I do find myself not getting much wear out of certain fabrics. One thing I constantly have a problem with is pilling. Jumpers, jackets, T-shirts … the list goes on. During one of my midnight trips to CVS while I was in the USA, I came across the display stand for Hollywood Fashion Secrets.

Who Are Hollywood Fashion Secrets

Their most well known product, and ultimately their claim to fame, was their invention of Hollywood Tape. They took a rather mundane piece of stationary known as double-sided sticky tape, and reformulated it to secure clothes to skin. Before Hollywood Tape, nip-slips could be found everywhere from the OSCAR’s red carpet to the dance floor at Hugo’s Kings Cross (that is in Sydney for all you internationals).

Today they make all kinds of wonderful inventions. I have quite a few of their quirky fashion savers and when I see new ones I get quite excited. That is what led me to this haul.

What is this? Wait and see!

My Haul

So there aren’t a heap of products. I feel weird actually calling it a haul, but nevertheless, I bought more than one item so to me it is a haul. Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
