Celebrity Beauty

Celebrities are often thrust into a position of being publicly ridiculed for their looks but despite this some celebrities not only embrace it but actually turn it into a business. I think it’s genius if you can take your position of being a face for beauty and turn that into a business venture, and that’s what these 7 female celebrities have done. Interestingly it’s also worth noting just how many celebrities care about being cruelty-free. From makeup to sunless tanning, these smoking hot women know how to market their unique beauty to the masses.  Continue Reading

Sale letter tags

I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday. Whether you had christmas festivities to enjoy or you were spending some quiet time to yourself, I hope you made the most of it and are feeling fulfilled. I often think this time of year is extremely commercial and while I hate to think I am a slave to consumerism, I know at heart I really am. Until I can overcome my internal battle with wanting new, shiny things I will embrace my desire to purchase the pretty things I like. For me, not celebrating Christmas means I don’t get to swap pretty things with my loved ones at this time of year so I look forward to the Boxing Day/Post-Christmas sales where I can buy exactly what I want. So today, this post is dedicated to all those people out there like me: slaves to consumerism and lovers of shiny things.

I have picked out the best of the best (which is practically all of them) sales, special offers, discounts and savings for you to take advantage of.

For those of you not in the USA, you may be confused by when the sales actually start and finish but don’t worry, most of them have already commenced and if you are confused about the times they finish just use the Time And Date converter to find out what time it would be in your part of the world. i.e. for sales that finish at 11:59pm on Wednesday (26/12) in the USA it will be 6:59pm on Thursday, (27/12) in Sydney, Australia.

Now let’s check out those fabulous deals!  Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
