Ladies, you have to agree with me there is nothing better than feeling sexy, confident and beautiful – just for you. But how do you get that way if you’ve worked three different deadlines in a row, felt sick from lunch and been told some horrible news? You schedule it! Just like your dentist appointment or meeting your superiors, this is important, too. Once a week is all I ask, and I’ll explain why it’s so great right now…
Tonight was my ‘Beauty Night’. I try to schedule one a week or – failing that – one a fortnight. On ‘Beauty Night’ everything gets done. And I mean everything. Here’s my ‘To Do’ list…
Obviously there’s no way I could (nor should) do all these on a daily basis, so scheduling one night a week to check everything off the list is not only a great idea, but also something to look forward to. Because you feel AMAZING afterwards.
It’s all in the products you use – ‘Beauty Night’ is not the night to skimp on products. On ‘Beauty Night’ it’s the best of the best. Here are my must haves, working down the ‘To Do’ list: Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes, it’s best just to stick with what you know. I know that The Body Shop has amazing, eco-friendly products that smell great and work! Whodathunkit?
Today’s product of the day comes to you courtesy of my dry elbows. In high school I had this weird thing for elbow skin, always testing other peoples’ to see how mine measured up. It never did. Read the rest of this entry »

Last night I headed out to the engagement of a friend of my partner’s. The dress was cocktail and my dress was black. I put it on in the afternoon to see where I would be going with my hair and make up, but it turned out it was my legs that needed to be made up, white they were. So, I decided there was no better time to test out Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs in Deep Glow.
Airbrush Legs claim to make your legs look perfect with one application and last the whole night through but I was skeptical. How could a (practically) foundation for your legs not rub off during walking, dancing, sitting, etc? Nonetheless, I hopped into the bathroom and sprayed the colour onto my hand, then rubbed it on my leg. Learning as I went, I discovered it is easier to spread the colour evenly if you quickly rub the product up and down your leg in sections, as you would a fake tan.

Miranda Kerr has the body everyone (men and women) wants. She has the of a model and the type of skin a baby cries out for. Plus she’s dating Orlando Bloom. Jealous, moi!? Um, yeah.
Miss Kerr also just released her skin care range at David Jones, named KORA. What’s special about the range is the noni juice extract in all the products, which Kerr swears by for her supple skin. Well, after the wild weather in Perth kept my pants on, my legs were not so supple and I decided to KORA them up with some of Miranda’s Organic Rich Body Lotion.

Before any big event where I know my skin’s going to be on show, I slather myself in one tried and true Clinique product – Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating Cream.
One little glob (a certified measurement) of this magic rough cream, rubbed in circular motions all over the body and especially on elbows, knees and heels reveals the smoothest, plumpest skin you’ve ever seen. Tiny granules exfoliate away dead skin cells, while you end with a surprising subtle shimmer when it’s all washed away by the shower. My container has lasted well over 6 months. I reeeeaaally recommend it!
