Review: Carmex healing lotion & healing cream

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Carmex. All opinions are 100% mine. My love affair with Carmex lip balm began several years ago when I was travelling in London. Back then, those little pots of medicated goodness weren’t readily available in my home city of Melbourne, and I’d buy stockpiles at Boots to bring back home with me. While Carmex’s…

Miranda Kerr’s campaign for Kora Skincare

Branching out from modelling, beautiful Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr is launching her own beauty line. Apparently involved heavily in the product development process – from manufacturing through to packaging – Kerr named the line Kora, after a type of pilgrimage and meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. A few shots from the launch campaign have come to light, showing a naked Miranda with loose…

Antidote Summer Glow: review + special offer

After several long winter months of having my legs tucked away under tights, the first warm days of Spring are appearing and I’m excited to test out a new self-tanning product that will, hopefully, make my ghastly white pins socially acceptable again. The product in question is Summer Glow by Antidote; and the promises it makes are nothing really new. No bad smells? I’ve heard…

Lindsay Lohan launches fake tanning product

Oh Lindsay Lohan, how you do amuse me. Not not just for your wild child antics. Nor because you simply love posing naked. No, it’s because you’re one of the few Americans who have an British sense of humour. At least, I assume you do. After all, your launching of a fake tan product, Sevin Nyne Spray Tan, can only be a tongue-in-cheek attempt at…

Beauty review: Schick Quattro Razor

For all the money I spend on skincare and moisturisers and the like, I must confess that when it comes to shaving I’m a bit of a cheap-arse (particularly in Winter – much to the disdain of the men in my life). So when I received a Schick Quattro for review, my expectation was for another over-priced piece of plastic and metal that wouldn’t do…

Lindsay Lohan: your skin is blinding me

When I first glanced across some of the recent paparazzi photos of Lindsay Lohan it crossed my mind that she’d finally stopped wearing black leggings. The actress come singer come Marylin Monroe breast-a-like had finally moved on, found something else, expanded her horizons. And what did I think she’d found? White leggings. Out with the black, in with the white.

Paris Hilton gets lip augmentation?

Or was stung by a bee. It wasn’t that long ago that Lindsay Lohan got some apparent cosmetic surgery, now it seems another Hollywood diva has joined her. Paris Hilton breaks the “don’t go outside” rule, and is the latest person to wear the trout pout.
