QUICK TIP >> DRYING FRIZZY HAIR

So it seems only fair that I spill the beans on my favourite trick for keeping my crazy/wavy/frizzy main under control – it’s too good to keep to myself! Ever since stumbling across this tip a few years ago it’s made the world of difference and my hair is in much better condition, making it a cinch to style and meaning I can sometimes (gasp! shock! horror!) even wear it au natural. The key? That old cotton promo t-shirt you’ve thrown away to be forgotten in the back  ...

TIME FOR A MAC HAUL

When a good friend of mine was heading off on holidays to Hawaii, I knew I had to take advantage and asked her very nicely if she could pick up a few things for me from MAC while she was there. I just can’t get over the crazy markups on cosmetics here in the land of Oz!Β Luckily she was most obliging andΒ happy to do some extra shopping on my behalf! πŸ˜‰ Granted, with the falling Aussie dollar the savings weren’t quite as good as they once were but I still stocked up on a few of my  ...

QUICK TIP > CLEANING STUBBORN MAKEUP BRUSHES

I’m sure many of you are reading this and thinking “who doesn’t know this trick?”, but up until recently I had no clue! I’m not even sure how I missed the memo about this but I had just been using my foundation brushes until I couldn’t clean them anymore with regular brush cleansers and then tossing them away – I cringe at the thought! I stumbled across this tip very randomly on YouTube and it has been such a lifesaver I thought it was worth  ...

SALLY HANSEN GWP

Playing around at Chemist Warehouse yesterday (it’s a little dangerous having one so close on lunch breaks!) I came across this cute gift with purchases from Sally Hansen for spending over $20. After giving my nails a much deserved rest from Shellac lately I have been on the look out for a polish that comes at least close in terms of lasting power and shine so these Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polishes (at $14.39 each) seemedΒ promising (stay tuned for a blog review coming soon)! Included  ...

PRICELINE HAIRCARE GIFT BAG

Last Thursday Priceline started their annual hair care gift bag with purchases of selected brands in store and online. In the past I haven’t been very keen on these as they seemed to contain quite a number of products that weren’t suitable for my hair colour/type – what a waste! However, since I was desperately in need of more Bastiste Dry Shampoo anyway I decided it was worth stocking up. Most of the brands included were on sale too so it worked out to be even better  ...

VALENTINES DAY > CURRENT LOVES

In honour of Valentines Day today and all things LOVE I thought it was about time I shared some of the things I have been madly in love with lately! Here we go: Shanghai Suzy Lipstick in Miss Courtney Electric Flamingo It took me a few months of having this in my collection before I really began to use it often. A friend had a stunning pink on her lips one night at dinner and what do you know – it was this baby! I whipped it out of my lippie collection quick smart and have been hooked  ...

GIFT TIME AT CLINIQUE

What’s that I hear? The sound of another Clinique gift with purchase – well obviously I’m in! If you’ve followed GPG for a while you know I tend to go a little crazy for Clinique Gift Time. Since I use Clinique products anyway on a regular basis (their Clarifying Lotion is a total skin saver for my oily self), I figure I may as well stock up and score some freebies at the same time – win! I love using the little trial sizes for my gym bag and I couldn’t resist the adorbs  ...

LUST HAVE IT FAB BOX // FEBRUARY

I have been totally loving my Lust Have It FaB boxes over the last few months. I love the combination of fashion accessories and a few on-trend makeup items and have been really impressed with the value. While I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the accessories this month (the bag in particular seems a bit cheap and the Boe Beauty nail enamel only retails for $2), the two lovely ModelCo Party Proof Lipsticks still left me excited for this month’s box (read about my new found  ...

NOTD > BOE BEAUTY IN PRETTY BABY

After being sent this beautiful summer shade in my recent Lust Have It FaB Box (review soon!), I decided to try it out. I’ve used a couple of products from the Boe Beauty range and wanted to see how the polish measured up. Boe Beauty is a range sold in Kmart stores and has quite a wide range of products on offer – I was quite impressed with how lovely and moisturising their lip crayons were even if they lacked the pigmentation of other more expensive brands. The verdict? While I  ...
