Talking hair again…

There's only so much you can do with dark-ish brown hair which tends to dryness, doesn't like being lightened, and throws lots of brassy warmth. You can try fighting it, as I have done many times over the years, with attempts at balayage, foils, dark blonde {WTF was I thinking???}, and various ashy tones which ...

Resolution shmesolution…

January seems to be the time we're supposed to re-invent ourselves, get fit, lose weight, and quit every vice or bad habit we have. I'm not sure why we're not expected to do that kind of stuff at any other time of the year, but last January I decided that the whole "new year new ...

Red-dy to rock

There are few things that can instantly lift my mood while making me feel fierce all at the same time, but a bold red lip does the trick every time. I've had my share of red lipsticks, ranging from cheap as chips supermarket brands to the iconic must-haves. Like everything else I definitely go through ...

All praise the beauty goddesses: my brow game just got a whole lot better.

Brow product trial no. 745. Brow related blog post mention no. 280. Number of brow products currently in my makeup cabinet: too many to count. You just know I'm going to try every new brow product that is ever released, don't you? And when I saw an ad on the telly one night for what ...

Talking brows. Again.

Another year rolls on by and I'm still obsessed with my brows. Or lack of. Last years cosmetic tattooing wasn't quite the success I had hoped for. Full microbladed brows done in January were touched up in March due to the expected initial loss of pigment {at no charge}, but then needed another touch up ...

Why #sorrynotsorry is the way to go.

I love a good hashtag. #sorrynotsorry Or as I like to think of it: "I would be sorry because it's probably expected of me but instead I say fuck that." Because it seems that, as women, we seem to be sorry for every bloody thing that we should enjoy instead. Why don't men have guilty ...

Beauty faves: Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencils

I've been a huge fan of these chubby crayon lip pencils for a couple of years. The Maybelline Color Drama lip pencils are heavy on pigment and staying power, the colours are vivid and lush, and the price is seriously cheap and budget friendly. Back when I was running my cafe they were the kind ...

Fringe Benefits

Fringes, or bangs if you prefer, get a really bad rap. Everyone tries to convince you not to do it because of the dreaded growing out phase and the hassle of daily styling. And I thought all of that too but went ahead and cut one anyway, one of those spur of the moment decisions made ...

Bye bye hair extensions

I can't believe the time flew so fast and five months later it was time for the hair extensions to be removed. Despite expecting to lose quite a few extensions {I read about people losing five to ten in so many reviews}, I only lost two, and one of those was just a few days ...

The hair extensions diary: 3 months in

Three months later, do I finally love them? Well I definitely don't hate them but I'm still not sure I'd say I love them. Here's what I can tell you: Are they worth the money? Yes, definitely. I paid for volume and volume is what I got. So much so that I hardly ever bother ...
