Boost confidence with Philips Zoom teeth whitening

Sponsored by Philips Zoom There are many parts of my body that I have a love-hate relationship with. Don’t get me wrong, the whole love-love idea is a life-long work in progress but some days, you know, the negative Nancy talk wins out. There is one part of my body, however, that Nancy never mentions

Why you should totally change your hair style

About six weeks ago I messaged my hairdresser with this photo. I gave her the heads up that I was ready for a change of ‘do and this was it. When she didn’t send back a barrage of  “tears streaming down face” emojis, I took this as a sign that I was onto a good

July 2016 beauty favourites

Hi Beauties, it’s time again to delve into my bathroom cabinet and see what I’ve been trialling on my skin, hair and face. Each month, dozens of new beauty products land on my desk (and I frequent all manner of beauty counters and supermarket aisles) for possible trial, review and feature here. It’s a hardship

13 ways to change up your beauty routine for winter

I feel a bit cheaty writing this post as it feels like I’ve just dipped my toes into the crispness of winter before whisking them (and my entire body) away for a couple of weeks of summer in Hawaii. But I’ll persist because, despite spray tanning and pedicuring it up before I fly, I will

21 beauty hacks, tips and short cuts to make your life easier

I’m a low-high maintenance girl when it comes to my beauty needs. My vanity rules and fuels my need to polish my look with all manner of salon and home beauty essentials. Everyone’s vanity meter is different. You might be horrified to know that I’m writing this without a scrap of makeup on my face.

How to create a lipstick wardrobe?

If there is one thing I can’t leave the house without, it’s lippy. Oh, ok, you got me … my preference is also that I’m fully clothed and not in danger of embarrassing my son on the school run. But apart from clothes, there has to be something on my lips. I seriously do not

Each month, dozens of new beauty products land on my desk for possible trial, review and feature here. I KNOW. Tough doesn’t come close to describing this aspect of my job. For

5 scalp friendly shampoos

I know I’m not alone in this struggle so I thought I’d do an update of this post I wrote a few years ago. I’ve been a psoriasis sufferer from the age of nine. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that shows itself as an overproduction of skin cells that appear as lumpy, itchy scaly clumps.

How to get the perfect eyebrow

In my formative and early adult years I really did not pay enough attention to my brows. By enough, I mean ANY attention. I truly did not understand the power of the brow and its magical abilities to make or break a face until a little more than five years ago. Yes, I’m a late bloomer.

How to remove fake tan

I’ve got those long-weekend feels happening. And by feels I mean prepping, planning and packing. We’re heading to the beach. The forecast is hot, hot, and hot – so like all good girls who like to be sun-safe, I’m packing the hat, beach shelter and I’ve booked in for a spray tan. While ever it’s

There is something about an eyeshadow palette that seduces me in with promises of fabulous colour contouring combinations. Only … I’m guilty of sticking to the same one or two colours in a palette, leaving the others lonely and untouched. Why stick to a palette then? Good question. I’m glad you asked.
