How To Prevent Crows Feet Header

Crows feet are often the first wrinkles women start to notice on themselves. Those fine lines branching out from the outer corner of our eyes reveal so much about how we care for ourselves. Dehydration, sun damage and repetitive face movements are the most common causes of crows feet. Before you go grabbing a needle filled with Botox, no matter how much damage you have already done you can still prevent further damage. For those of you who are yet to see the signs of crows feet forming, now is the time to take my tips into action so you can prolong having to take any drastic action in the future.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for using injectables and fillers when the time comes, but a few changes in your daily life can make an impact (and my tips are all much more cost effective). Continue Reading

The Hand Book Nail Art Kester Black Bday Gift

A few weeks ago I celebrated my 27th birthday. Ok, it wasn’t so much a celebration as a day of applying hydrating face masks and bathing myself in anti-aging cream. Nevertheless, the day had rolled around and the one thing I begged my family and friends for this year was NO PRESENTS. I am kind of (read: totally) a hoarder and the last thing I needed was more useless stuff no matter how pretty it is. And then there is the fact I buy every single beauty thing that takes my fancy so there really isn’t much left to get me. But of course, they didn’t listen however for once I am actually really glad they didn’t consider my pleas. This year, they knocked it out of the park so I thought I would show you what I got because it may just help you to find a gift for someone really difficult in your life. And let’s not forget, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Continue Reading

When I splashed out less than $20 on my bib necklace haul from Nordstrom, I also picked up an item I had been lusting after, an Equipment Signature Silk Shirt in Bright White. This is technically my first new investment piece in my wardrobe revamp and based on the rave reviews this shirt gets, I couldn’t have picked a better item. So, what do I really think of it and most importantly, how do I wear it?  Continue Reading

The last time I wore pants I was crucified, and rightly so. I looked shocking and it put me off trying pants ever again. BUT here is the deal, I need pants. It is winter in Australia, I am freezing cold, and I am sick of shoving my fat thighs into tights which only gives me a massive muffin top and then pulling the tights up every few minutes so the crotch isn’t at my knees. Can you tell this has been bugging me a little?  Continue Reading

I am currently trying to clear out the “crap” from my wardrobe and stock it with really good basics. It is something the fashion experts always tell us to do, but until this year I never really understood it. Now as I get older I realize my wardrobe is chocked full of clothes that were trendy too many years ago. They look dated and just plain wrong. Plus, with my recent weight gain, all the good pieces I had no longer fit.

One of the items right at the top of my list is a silk (or silky) white shirt. One that I can wear for business and for casual. Tucked in or loose. Comfortable but not bulky. Oh and definitely not sheer (I am too old for that). But it is proving to be impossible.

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
