Beauty Blog Coalition Online Shopping Tips

If there were just one minority of people who knew how to expertly shop online it would have to be bloggers. And if we were to narrow it down further, fashion and beauty bloggers would definitely be the most savvy shoppers of them all. As we prepare for the Boxing Day sales and New Year shopping madness I asked my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to provide their best tips for online shopping.

Bookmark this post, write a to-do list and prepare yourself because you will never shop online the same way again. But before we get into the tips from the other fabulous bloggers, let me share some of my own:  Continue Reading

Lush Cosmetics Campaign Cruelty Free Kisses
Did you know that this Saturday, 6 July 2013 is International Kissing Day? Lots of cosmetic brands have arranged different ways to celebrate but one brand in particular has definitely won the campaign rounds in my eyes. Lush Cosmetics is all about cruelty-free kisses this International Kissing Day and they are celebrating with an official Guinness World Record attempt. Oh and this isn’t just for Australia, this is global!

So what do Lush Cosmetics have planned? Listen to this. All of their Lush stores (worldwide) will be asking their customers to pucker up and support their attempt to set the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title of the most lip prints collected in 12 consecutive hours. The current record of 22,174 lipstick prints collected in 12 hours is set by Oriflame Slovakia at 89 locations throughout Slovakia on 14 September 2010. Surely we can beat that.  Continue Reading

Clearasil Picture Perfect Guide Hairstyles

Your skin should be your number 1 investment. I know I have said it a million times but for those up the back who may not have heard me ….. your skin should be your number 1 investment. You like makeup? great, it works better with healthy skin. You like pretty hairdo’s? awesome, it looks better when matched with healthy skin. Honestly, your skin is more important than you can imagine but today I am going to play to our completely vain inner self. Can you guess another thing that looks better with healthy skin? PHOTOS!

We are in more photos today than people have ever been in the history of photography. We have camera on everything and with the popularity of social media like Instagram, Vine and Facebook we are sharing thousands of photos every second. Within that there is a very special niche of “selfies” – the all important art of taking a photo of yourself. However, selfies can be the hardest to pull off so when I saw Clearasil had recruited famed fashion photographer Nicholas Samartis to create a “selfie” guide I thought it was definitely worth sharing with you.

Judy is this awesome nail blogger I met way back in 2011 at Cosmoprof and when I discovered her site, BeautyJudy.com, I was amazed at her nail application talents. Of course Judy is an awesome beauty blogger in every other aspect but I think girls who can consistently paint their nails this well are deserving of a Noble Prize or something equivalent. Today Judy has been so kind to share with us one of her Christmas nail art tutorials featuring a Santa Suit.

They are so adorable and if you do give it a try please share some the snaps with us via Twitter, Facebook or InstagramContinue 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
