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  ...

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  ...

My Gym Bag Essentials

Back into my usual workout routine this week after a little too much time off (and too many treats) over the Christmas break and I thought I would share with you my beauty essentials that make those boot camp sessions that little bit more bearable! After quite a few years going to the gym/bootcamp I’ve narrowed it down to just a few products that save me time and leave me looking slightly more presentable when I’m done. Here goes: Carmex Strawberry Lip BalmThis is amazing for  ...

2013 Favourites

After a massive cull to prevent this post taking you all three days to read, I finally selected my absolute, hands-down, favourite products from 2013. Even now, I’m resisting the urge to throw a few more back into the mix for good measure – eek! Drumroll please…Victoria’s Secret Shiny Kiss Lip Gloss in Candy BabyI have a bit of a stash of these going on and find these to be the perfect gloss. Non-sticky but thick enough that it lasts on my lips, this can be applied on it’s own or  ...

Time for some December empties…

There’s something satisfying about getting to the end of the month and tipping out my bin to see all the products I’ve used up – plus it keeps Mr GPG happy since I no longer have empty containers lying around! I’ve decided I’m on a bit of a mission this year to use up the tons of sample tubes and sachets I have been hoarding (yep, there really is no other word for it – whoops) from sample boxes. I have a funny little thing where I like to save them for “travelling” but let’s be honest –  ...

Time for a hair change!

After quite a few years torturing my hair to be various shades of blonde it finally spat the dummy and started snapping so it was time to give it a little break! It did cope really well considering my natural hair is curly and quite a dark brown and it has suffered through years of blow drys, straightening and bleach being painted on to get it as light as a white blonde. I was always a tad obsessed with hair masks, serums and heat protectors so I think that’s why it was in good  ...

Dry Shampoo Mini Haul

Since I started doing bootcamp at the end of January I have been heading straight to work in the mornings and showering and sadly I’m in too much of a rush usually to wash/blowdry/straighten my unruly hair. Dry shampoo has become my saviour to get me through to the end of the day when I can finally wash my hair! So when I saw that my favourite brand Bastiste was on sald at Chemist Warehouse for $4.99 each I decided to stock up! I’m not too fussed which scents I pick up of these,  ...

Beautorium Haul

I’ve been meaning to post this for a few weeks now but once again Beautyheaven had their quarterly Beautorium and I decided to jump on and use up some of my points. I had passed up the last one as there wasn’t really anything I wanted and was working on building up my points collection again but this time I decided to pick up some beauty goodies! I liked the way they have now split up the categories over the week (makeup one day, haircare another etc) as it seemed to spread out  ...

David Jones Beauty Bag

Lats Friday I excitedly rushed off in my lunch break to check out the DJs beauty bag. I haven’t always picked these up in the past as they haven’t contained products I would use but this time around they had a choice of 2 bags and it took me ages to decide on which one! The bag costs $19.95 and to qualify for it you had to purchase any beauty item from the store. I wasn’t sure what I needed so I chose this cute little kit from Rimmel that was reduced down to $14. I  ...
