Ok, straight off I have to tell you I have already lied. There is not 5 things. There are 10 things. Frankly, people make way too many mistakes before they opt for plastic surgery so there is no way I could leave it at just 5 things you need to know. You need to know all 10 so I have recruited Kate Moreland, the director of Clarify Clinic, to tell us about the 10 most common mistakes she sees from people considering plastic surgery.
Even if you or someone you know isn’t necessarily considering plastic surgery right now, you should definitely read this because it is something you cannot discount down the track.

Crows feet are often the first wrinkles women start to notice on themselves. Those fine lines branching out from the outer corner of our eyes reveal so much about how we care for ourselves. Dehydration, sun damage and repetitive face movements are the most common causes of crows feet. Before you go grabbing a needle filled with Botox, no matter how much damage you have already done you can still prevent further damage. For those of you who are yet to see the signs of crows feet forming, now is the time to take my tips into action so you can prolong having to take any drastic action in the future.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for using injectables and fillers when the time comes, but a few changes in your daily life can make an impact (and my tips are all much more cost effective). Read more »

It may be winter weather down in Australia but unfortunately being a female means we aren’t off the hook for hair removal, no matter how cold it is. For me, winter is the season of the razor. The thought of having my skin open to the fresh air longer than a minute is just too much to cope with, so I don’t want to stand around waiting for depilation cream to work its magic or have to fiddle with wax. I want to be in a nice hot shower, swipe a razor and get back into my toasty pyjamas. The downside to shaving is that it can be the most dehydrating way to remove hair, and if you couple that with the already dry winter air you can turn into one big flaky skinned mess. Eek. Hopefully the Gillette Venus ProSkin MoistureRich razor is the answer to your worries, but you will have to read my review to find out. Read more »

Trilogy is renowned for their potent skincare and belief in natural products. Their rosehip oil continues to be a top seller year after year but the brand has not taken that as a sign to sit back and let the success roll in. This past February, Trilogy took a leap of faith when they released their new Advanced Natural Haircare line. They wanted to apply the same natural approach to beauty that they had done for skin and body, but apply it to hair. I was skeptical at first because my experience with natural haircare products have never been that exciting. Would Trilogy change that for me? Read on to find out as I share my review of their Refresh & Shine shampoo and conditioner. Read more »

If there is anything better than receiving a well deserved gift it would have to be giving one. And no one is more deserving than our mothers or motherly-figures. It is one day a year to say thank-you for putting up with us, for raising us, for doing everything you could to keep us safe and happy (no matter how determined we were to make it difficult for you). Whether it is actually your birth mothers, grandmother, sister, aunty or simply a friend who helped you in life …. Sunday, 12 May is the day to thank them with a gift.
I personally think there is no better gift than one that makes you look and feel good. It may be something personal like a fragrance that invokes memories of good times, or a bright red lipstick that says you are a confident woman and I cherish that. Every gift tells a story so why not make it one that is more than a box of chocolates. The gift ideas you will find in this post are worthy of making your mother feel loved. Read more »

A few weeks ago I celebrated my 27th birthday. Ok, it wasn’t so much a celebration as a day of applying hydrating face masks and bathing myself in anti-aging cream. Nevertheless, the day had rolled around and the one thing I begged my family and friends for this year was NO PRESENTS. I am kind of (read: totally) a hoarder and the last thing I needed was more useless stuff no matter how pretty it is. And then there is the fact I buy every single beauty thing that takes my fancy so there really isn’t much left to get me. But of course, they didn’t listen however for once I am actually really glad they didn’t consider my pleas. This year, they knocked it out of the park so I thought I would show you what I got because it may just help you to find a gift for someone really difficult in your life. And let’s not forget, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Read more »
