My apologies that this post is a bit late, between moving house and a dodgy internet connection the last week has been relatively unproductive.
Anyway, on Australia Day (26th January) morning I managed to get to the Reebonz Offline sale, which was held at the HIlton Hotel in Brisbane.
I got to meet with Crystal and the team who were absolutely lovely! They brought with them a swag of 100′s of designer items, with brands like Balenciaga, Gucci, Burberry, Prada, Givenchy, Tods, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and even an amazing selection of Vintage Chanel.
I managed to get some snaps on my iPhone for you all to drool over – some amazing discounts were to be had with 20-70% off!
If you don’t know already, Reebonz is my FAVORITE online store, selling luxury brands at discounted prices. So far I’ve managed to snatch a gorgeous Prada Daino Hobo, Love Moschino Crocodile Clutch, Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Karlie Shoulder Bag, a Burberry watch and have a Pair of Carrera aviators on their way!
I guess if you’re not already familiar with the online store, one of the other spectacular things about this site is they offer lay-by (yes LAY-BY) to Australia. You can spread your purchases over 5 or less payments over the course of 10 weeks – usually via bank deposit. The ability to lay-by means that coveted luxury items are now so much more accessible.
Also a little birdie told me that they are launching a retail store in Sydney, across the road from the QVB precinct in the first half of the year – I will keep you posted on launch details!
Copenhagen Fashion week is upon us – one of my favourite weeks! With an epic selection of amazingly creative innovative designers showing this year, I’m going to be tuning into as many show possible! One show I certainly wont be missing is the By Malene Birger show, one designer on the top of my shopping list!
Designers showing include:
For those of you who missed the live showing (from the Elie Saab site) or had trouble viewing it – enjoy!
For your enjoyment!
Are you having skin issues? Face like a pizza perhaps?
You are not alone! I’ve been there. As someone who has tried just about everything I thought I would do an article on what’s worked for me and what I know of that’s out there. See below for some of my solutions to busting the bumps!
Here are some options you might want to consider
If your skin isn’t sensitive try products with ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Tea Tree Oil and Witch Hazel. They have antibacterial properties, plus Salicylic and Gyclolic Acid exfoliate deep into the pore reducing the nasties, and help unblock your pores.
I find that using regular products but switching to a toner with Salicylic Acid twice a week helps a lot. I’ve gone overboard using Salicylic Acid before and it sizzled my face! So be careful!
If your unsure of what to try, book in with a dermatologist or beauty therapist, it will cost you more but it will be worth it in the end!
It should go without saying, but all that bacteria from current pimples is going to go all over your pillow the entire night. Your going to re-infect your skin if you don’t change your pillowcase.
GROSS FACT: Avoid sharing a pillow. Did you know your men have 15 time more bacteria on their faces than girls. Gross I know but it’s a true fact. So girls – if you share a bed with the opposite gender make sure he keeps to his side of the bed.
If your not already aware – there are a couple of contraceptives on the market that also combat breakouts. Brands like Estelle/Diane and Yaz (newly released) are designed control a hormone called androgen that can attribute to excess oil production. It’s important to see your doctor and get tests to make sure what you are being prescribed is suitable.
Personally I have tried both Estelle and Yaz. Yaz started to kick in within a week but it made me crazy. Estelle took a month or two for results.
Personally I have tried Doxycycline, a low dose antibiotic taken over a course of 3 months. It was super successful, and took about 6 weeks to kick in. I’m not too sure how good it for you taking antibiotics for an extended period of time like that though.
While taking Doxycycline, I had to stay out of the sun, as you get burnt really easy! I would recommend trying points 1 -4 before resorting to visiting the doctor for a course of these.
Personally I have never taken Accutane, but a friend of mine has. The process is quite involved from what I’m aware. You need to go to a doctor, then get a referral to a dermatologist who will prescribe a course – usually if you have severe acne.
My friend said that it made her go insane! Her lips cracked, skin peeled and she had terrible mood swings – but it worked. Definitely the last resort in my opinion but one that seems to work.
