What I Wore: Lusso VIP Opening

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with my fellow bloggers for a sneak peak of the Lusso Luxury Boutique in Manuka,Canberra. Leather, Fur, Handbags and Boots all straight from the runways of Milan were on display as we nibbled on canapés and sipped on Moet (I don’t actually drink, but sometimes I like to pretend to #pretendadult). The Brumbies made a guest appearance, and proceeded to tell us which items of clothing they would like to see on a woman. As you can imagine, it was rather entertaining. I organised my outfit for the event the week…

Trends of the Moment

Last weekend I celebrated my Cousin Jack’s 21st birthday. At the event three out of the six women were wearing an off the shoulder top. What are the current fashion trends and why are they trending?   Off the Shoulder It is comfortable. For women with larger breasts we are still able to wear a bra, a feat that is not often possible with trends such as cut outs and low backed bodysuits. They are practical. You can wear an off the shoulder top with boyfriend jeans, a denim skirt, shorts or even leggings. This type of top is flattering…

An Afternoon at Prime 7: Behind the Scenes with Diana Cheetham

Television. That autonomous technology that allows us to communicate, daydream with our eyes open, entertain and inform. The time waster behind those unfinished assignments, dog eaten homework and weary eyes at work. How often do we all sit down in front of the screen and actually consider how it all comes to form? I had no clue. I had spent very little time considering all the effort behind the scenes until last Thursday afternoon when I was invited by Fashfest Makeup Director Diana Cheetham to gain an exclusive look behind the scenes at Prime 7 Canberra. I guess you could…

Beauty Looks @ 2017 Grammy’s with Fashfest Makeup Director Diana Cheetham

Last Sunday night was the ever explosive, always interesting event that is The Grammy’s. I love the music and the performances but my favourite part has always been the Red Carpet. I love the glitz and the glamour. I love the fashion fails and the golden gown moments, and this year was no exception. And as always the world’s fashion and media elite were quick to voice their thoughts. Make Up Director for Fashfest Diana Cheetham focused on the ‘winning’ Beauty Looks of the biggest stars:    LADY GAGA “How inspirational to see a little creativity on the face but still…

My Month of Masks

If any of you have been following me on Facebook and Instagram you will have discovered my latest love for Korean Beauty Products thanks to Australian company Style Story. My most recent beauty trial has been a full month of Sheet masks. Those white ghost like masks that we see the likes of Emma Stone and Blake Lively using on Instagram to maintain their flawless complexions. For a month I have used a range of different masks, each promising a different result for my skin. I’ve used a snail mask, a green tea mask, a deep sea mask, an aloe…

What I Wore: January 2017

I’ve never been a big fan of crowds. I’ll choose a big book and a cup of tea over a crowded room any day. So it will come as no surprise that I avoided last year’s boxing day sales. Well at least, the actual store fronts. Online shopping, however, provided me with an easy solution to my lack of enthusiasm for crowded queues and pushy fellow shoppers. So there I sat with my big book, a cup of tea, and my lap top. Of course. And ever since I have been wearing my new pieces obtained from my online post…

Beauty Discovery: Snail Cream

Korean Beauty products have been taking the cosmetic world by storm. Why? With their advanced technologies and promise of immediate results Korean Beauty Products turn the focus of beauty onto skin care rather than makeup, and global beauty brands such as Loreal and Clinique are taking notice. Asian beauty products already have an almighty following, which includes Australian women. Style Story is our place for all things Korean Beauty. They have embraced the philosophy of this new cosmetic wave and the scientific wonders along with it. One of these scientific wonders being the use of Snail Mucus in beauty products.…

Barely There Summer Beauty

Summer = Struggle. A Struggle to find my white legs in the white sand. A Struggle to find a parking space (or in most cases THE ONLY parking space) with shade. A Struggle to disguise Flat Leg Syndrome (when you wear shorts and sit down and you’re legs turn into premium size logs). A Struggle to wipe the ever increasing, copious amounts of sweat off my face after exercising to avoid break outs. A Struggle to keep my make up fresh and looking totally effortless on a hot summer’s day. Skeyndor Australia have offered me a chance to eliminate the…

Top 10 Red Carpet Dresses 2016

I love going to the hairdressers. I love having my hair washed and blow dryed and gossiping about the latest local news. I also love reading the trashy magazines that they sit out for you to read while you sit with your foils in, and my girl Shiralee always picks out the best ones. I love trashy magazines because at the front or the back they showcase the latest outfits of celebrities at events, or compare different celebrities wearing the same outfit (I love a bit of competition). So I’ve put together my Top 10 Red Carpet Dresses for this…
