I'm not a huge fan of thick, all covering, mask-like foundation so for years now have had a crush on Revlons' Skinlights Face Illuminator. Depsite it being the "BEST...ILLUMINATOR...EVER" made (quoting the Grazia article where I made this discovery) it stopped being made at all a couple of years ago. Since then I have only managed to find it in a small el cheapo beauty store (selling the likes of $3 eyeshadow) at the mall in Lower Hutt but even their supplies have dried up - as has my last bottle. After settling on a less than ideal back up plan from the Body Shop I was so excited to discover that they have re-launched my fav! It's been re-named Revlon Age Defying Spa Face Illuminator and I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the new, supermarket-friendly, packaging. From this...

to this...

...or the fact that it now has 'Age Defying' splashed across the front.But 'spa'? Yes please! And I AM intrigued by the fact it now has a brush attached for application. Bring on pay day - I'm buying up a ten year supply just incase.

From The Inspired Collection, this piece (The Embassador) is part of their Awards Collection. I can't even poinpoint what part I love the most - the matte gold? The crest? The tough leather stiching and stud detailing or the wax seal/stamp on the tag? The rest of their standard pieces are equally as smokin and sit on the site next to a sketch of whatever it was that inspired that ring. Want it? TICK!


Wowza - was just introduced to this by a workmate and I'm loving it. Janelles (we're on a first name basis) dance moves can only be described as squiggly and some how she pulls of manly attire throughout the whole video without looking even a tince manly -  I'd look more like a killer whale I think. Watch it!

Only 7 more sleeps until Florence tickets go on sale...arrrrrr! I can't sleep already! Work productivity levels today: 1%. Time at work spent day dreaming about the amazingness of a Florence concert: 99%.

you hit me once

i hit you back

you gave a kick

i gave a slap

you smashed a plate over my head

then i set fire to our bed


So sit back and watch the bed burn

I found a new love child last week. The after party for the CAANZ Media awards had to levels - on level one glamourous career ladder climbers hustled for a photo at the MTV photo area. On level two, hidden in the corner on level two was a photo booth that my friend and I found before the rest of the crowd did and whammo - obsessed (fifteen photo shoots later).

Apparently you can hire these for weddings - one for the bride and groom, one for the guest. Ideal. Personally I am getting one for my lounge. I can hear you asking 'wow you guys look hot - how'd you get such smoking makeup?' (haha) - more on that soon....
