Five Quick Tips To Stay Healthy Tomorrow

In Christmas, Health, Wellbeing on December 24, 2011 at 6:00 am

By Tammi Ireland

Tomorrow’s Christmas Day, where we’ll be faced with more food and drinks than we could possibly fathom.  It’s often the day we lose our drive to eat healthily and promise to start again once the clock ticks over to Boxing Day, but the damage could already be done.  If you want to still feel fresh and enjoy Christmas this year, here are five tips on doing just that …


  1. Prepare.  Have a big bottle of water before heading to your uncle’s Chrissy bash.  Not only will it slow alcohol intake, it will keep you fuller for longer and you’ll be able to say ‘no’ to the second serving of pumpkin pie without your tummy rumbling in protest.
  2. Drink light alcohol.  It’s tipped to be a scorcher tomorrow, so be sure to drink lighter drinks and non-alcoholic if possible.  We know this isn’t always the case, so go for the clearer drinks (wine spritzers, gin and tonics, etc) rather than heavy red wines and egg nogs to stave off a hangover and sore tummy in the evening.
  3. Take advantage of the season.  The summer season, that is, not the festive one.  There will be an abundance of fresh salads, seafood and fruit on the Christmas table, so be sure to head for that rather than the fruit mince pies and Christmas cakes come dessert.
  4. Get some rest.  Wherever possible today, tomorrow and on boxing day, take some time to lie down and get some shut-eye.  It’s the best thing you can do for beauty and health over Christmas.
  5. Be safe.  Please, please, please don’t drink and drive, beauties.  We love you, and want to hear from you after Christmas and well into the New Year. Read the rest of this entry »

Yay, Christmas is just days away.  Eating with the family, drinking with friends, and being merry all weekend, we can’t wait here in the Coveted Canvas office!  What are you doing for Christmas?

Whichever way you celebrate, the key for your makeup is to keep it simple. You don’t want to be running to the bathroom to check your foundation or fix your lippy in between the prawn cocktail entree and turkey main.  The key is a little in the prep, a lot in the application.  Here’s the look we’re aiming for this year…

What is Summer to you?

In Christmas, Everyday, Mag Love, Party time, Sun, Weather, Western Australia on December 7, 2010 at 10:41 am

Here in Perth the skies are a bit overcast and it’s a little bit chilly.  Basically, it’s not summer.  So rather than whinge, I thought I’d create a montage of the things Summer means to me in WA. Feel free to add what Summer means to you below.  T x
