I’ve had a few horrific hair moments in my time. When I was modelling full-time my hair was regularly a limp, frazzled mess. Constant styling tends to do that to you, even those blessed with the most perfect, full head of tresses. I also remember one time, when I was about 23, I decided… Read More How I Repaired My Hair
I’m not one for “New Year, New Me” thought processes. I’ve never felt that just because the calendar ticks over that it means I’m bound for change. If I want to change something in July then I’ll change it in July. I don’t need January 1st to spur me into action. When it comes to… Read More New Year, New Routine
I finally worked out what all the fuss was about. One of my friend's (in particular) has been pestering me to get my brows expertly handled for ages!!! I told her gals like me can't get brows like her's. Besides, I consider myself pretty expert and my pencil and gel from the drug store was working just… Read More What to Expect When You Get Your Brows Done at Alison Jade
Heyyyy everyone! I know a little while ago I mentioned I would be getting into video blogs and then I posted like 2 and fell off the planet. Well, that was a lot to do with time management and general technological disabilities on my behalf (he he). Anyway, I decided to just get over the… Read More Trying Something New…Come See My First Video Blog
I discovered Drunk Elephant Skincare about a year ago and I’ve been in love ever since. I still haven’t sampled the entire range, but the ones I’ve tried have been impressive. C-Firma Day Serum, the Lippe and Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil have knocked off any other skin serum/oil I’ve ever sampled. You wear the… Read More Drunken Favourites
So usually when people are off on a trip to Japan their mind is bursting with sight-seeing locations, skiing, tours, hot springs, cultural experiences and sushi. I’ll admit these thoughts were absolutely running through my mind, although, when I did finally decide to book Japan, scoping out their mysterious skincare and beauty counters was high… Read More Here’s the Scoop on the Japanese Beauty Terrain
I bought my first exfoliating scrub when I was maybe 16. It was the cult favourite by St. Ives that everyone owned back then. It was heavenly and I still use it occasionally when I want to feel like I’ve given myself a DYI mini-micro (haha). It’s also dirt cheap, so who can complain about… Read More The Scoop on Chemical v Physical Exfoliants
Glorious Winter! It’s been so nice not having to deal with that dreaded sunshine. I realise how strange this comment is for some people, especially as an AUSTRALIAN for God’s sake. I just really hate being hot! It’s awful, and I’m pretty sure my thoughts on hot weather is WELL documented throughout this blog. So… Read More Winter Empties!
I know I’ve always claimed to hate acrylics and shellac nails for several reasons; namely because they destroy your nails and also just because I prefer well-groomed natural for everyday wear (not to mention it’s more functional during basketball season). Alas, I must admit I am pretty stoked with my newly pink shellac manicure! Last… Read More Shhhhellac’d!
And I like it! This clay is a massive mainstay for beauty bloggers. I’ve been hearing about it for years but of course, here in Down Under, we don’t stock it. And despite globalisation there doesn’t seem to be an online store that ships it to Oz either. So I kinda of gave up on the idea.… Read More I jumped on the Aztec Indian Secret Healing Clay bandwagon….
