A lack of sleep is a common complaint – up to a third of adults are thought to suffer some kind of sleep disturbance or insomnia. Still, knowing you’re not alone doesn’t help you when you’re wide awake in the middle of the night, and then fall into a deep slumber just before the alarm goes off in the morning. Sleep problems can have many causes, but you can often have trouble sleeping when you’re worried or stressed. The negative effects of not getting enough quality sleep can be cumulative – and this in itself can cause you additional stress as you feel unable to // READ MORE…

Is ‘groomed eyebrows on fleek’ OUT? Has the world of makeup had enough of contouring and glamed looks? I dare say YES. Makeup has had it with too-polished looks, and it seems to me however we turn these days we’re still obsessed with eyebrows. In 2016 we are going back to the full-on natural messy look of young girls who’ve never touched a hair on their brow, and are all about the strong natural look. Still we are left with one Q. What is smokey eyebrows? It’s the opposite of too-groomed, polished, and perfect aka on fleek. Smoky eyebrows are full, slightly messy eyebrows, filled-in // READ MORE…

Because you are an individual it is only natural that you want everything about you to reflect who you are and what your personality is like. This goes for the car  you drive, the perfume you wear, the clothes you wear and all of the accessories you have to go along with your outfit. Each item makes some type of statement about who you are. Of course what you wear and carry may also be affected by the latest fashion trends you see in magazines, on television or on the Internet. Sometimes when you see that famous person wearing something particular you just know it // READ MORE…

(…) and it was right after I turned and looked at him, and we shook hands for the first time that it hit me: we both had the same hairstyle. It’s really funny when you think of it, but it’s gotta mean something doesn’t it? His was short of course, like a 50s undercut, long in the front and slicked back like he was this dark handsome vampire in an expensive tuxedo surrounded by his cloud of vicious cigarette smoke. And mine was long, cause I always had long hair, slicked back so it showed off my dark red pout and strapless long dramatic dress. // READ MORE…

How we look can be very important to us. Unfortunately, we all will have to deal with wrinkles at some point in our lives. It’s a reality we all have to face. The older we get, usually it’s the worse it gets for our skin and some turn to surgery to try and turn back the clock of time. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many skin tightening procedures available to fit our budgets. Treating wrinkles sooner rather than later means less drastic measures need to be taken. Take a moment to learn what factors can affect your options. Where do // READ MORE…

On how I spend my days these days, aside from living the hashtags in my life – #busybee #fuckoff #drankup #iaintneverbitchin – I tend to fantasise a LOT about a different world. It’s a world where there’s background music, where all mistakes turn to great stories, where it’s an all around summer, where we can eat all we want sans the triggering body issues, where the skin is flawless, the eyes are happy, the heart is wild, the brain works 100%, where hair grows right back with just one thought. Oh… how I’d love that. I’d swing in my hammock with a cool chopped bob, // READ MORE…

Aside from a mix of sheer panic and a bit of that impossible to resist mystery and sex-appeal oozed by dark lipstick, the very thought of wearing maroon, dark red, purple, black lips in 2015-2016 Fall is beautiful and scary. The beauty trend that was driving my parents insane in the 90s, every time I’d sneak out the house in dead-dark-lips is having a major comeback for sometime now. We’ve already talked about dark lipstick in the cold season in this blogpost, but I somehow feel it’s never redundant to discuss more makeup, more beauty trends, more how we’d wear it, and if we’d do // READ MORE…

My little twinkle stars… when it comes to hair, and its many many styles and trends – it’s all written in the skies. Each hair has its own destiny, and though it may take billions of shapes, and sizes, and colours throughout its life, it will always feel and look best when it fulfils its destiny. Which lies in the stars. No. I did not just hit my head, nor am I drunk. Nor crazy. Well… that’s up for discussion. It’s summer, which means LEO season, which means my bday today of all days, which means I’m more prone to all these signs and stars // READ MORE…

When the going gets tough, aka any given Monday morning, just say to hell with it all and head to the beach. Right. If only it was that simple. What is simple though, is pretending we’re going to the beach. Whaaaaaaaa?! Miming beach looks in dead-centre town-lives, in busy mornings schedules that look like anything but the lives of beach friendly rich and famous – now why on Earth would you do that? Pretend you live by the ocean (beauty wise and all), when in fact you’re literally hitting your head against thousands of walls and concrete? Well… cause of the BEACH WAVES baby. And // READ MORE…

The X and Y versus-talk is never ever a winning battle, but in fashion as in life, it ain’t all about the destination or the result. Sometimes the journey, aka the talk is the whole point – the cake AND the cherry on top too. (great, now I’m craving for chocolate cake.) With that out of the way we can easily discuss LIPS trends for 2015.  We will not suck on bottles or what the hell that Kylie Jenner lip thing was about! Instead we will love our lips as they are and make them pretty with, here’s a thought: makeup. LIPGLOSS lost a lot // READ MORE…
