How to be a lady – Personal Grooming


imagesS1H3OM6O

To achieve an elegant look, your personal grooming has to be immaculate.

How you dress, and how you carry yourself is important if you want to be elegant. Dressing elegantly is a whole other thing, and I will blog about this specifically in a separate blog. We need to think about our personal appearance and what we can do to make ourselves look good.

Self-care is vital in this instance, and a woman that does not love herself will not be able to become a lady. You need to love, care and look after yourself and love your feminine side.

What’s important is that you devote time and energy to refine your image and character. I may reflect more on this in another blog.

When in the shower I cleanse my face with Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser. It penetrates deep into pores and improves the complexion. Then I moisturize my face with Sukin Rose Hip Hydrating Day Cream. It has a combination of pomegranate, Kakadu plum and rose hip oil. The ingredients are fruits and oils, such as jojoba oil, lavender, vitamin E and vanilla, and the cream is suitable for all skin types, so any one can use it!!

After a shower I use Crabtree and Evelyn Pomegranate Argan and Grape seed Oil Skin Indulging Body Cream. It is the best body cream I have ever used!!! I love to indulge in Crabtree & Evelyn’s body lotions. They always smell divine, and the cream is so silky and moist and has rich botanical ingredients including natural antioxidants. It smells of pomegranate with a burst of citrus and fresh fig leaf.

This luxurious body cream will pamper and replenish your entire skin and leave your skin feeling soft and supple.

Having a clean and pleasant look radiates to others, and people like to see fresh and polished looks. So, moisturize your body, have a cup of tea and read a book, or a magazine!!! Take some time out for yourself. Don’t feel guilty when it comes to your needs.

I just used a skin-clarifying mud mask, and it is strawberry and yarrow. It works on clogged pores and clarifies your skin. If you leave it on for 10-15 minutes it will enrichen your skin, and when rinsed it feels divine!! It was only $1 at Priceline Pharmacy.

Also, exercising helps you build your self-esteem and confidence, and make you feel good about yourself. Aim to work out 2-3 times a week. Exercise also helps with good posture. Do either pilates or yoga. I am going to start doing this as Kate Middleton does this in her fitness regime, and look at her body! She also does a lot of rowing, and using the rowing machine at the gym will also help with great posture.

Anyways, I am going to go back to my cup of tea, and reading of “The taming of the Queen” by Phillipa Gregory.

5 MUST HAVES TO GO IN YOUR HANDBAGS


A friend, Priscilla requested for this blog, and she wanted to know what necessities to put in her handbag for every day use, and item’s you can not go without!!!! I have put together some items that you will need to use when out for dinner, lunch, or breakfast.

Some of these items are:

  1. REVLON ColourBurst Matte Balm – I chose number 205 because it is a light pink and looks very soft and pretty on the lips. It is like a crayon and easy to apply, leaving your lips feeling moisturized and matte. There are a heap of different colour ranges from cherry red to even purple!!!

2. REVLON ColourStay Mineral Blush – You need blush in your handbag because through out the night makeup washes away. You will need this to top up, and refresh your face for the rest of the night. Every girl needs at least a blush in their bag for whenever they go out. This is great because it’s Colour Stay!

3. Christian Dior Curl Up Mascara – This is my new favourite mascara, and I am always on the look out for mascara that curls the lashes right up!! This is perfect for a refresher through out the day. I have been taking mine everywhere, but too much can make it look gluggy; just a quick little touch every now and then, makes the lashes look longer and longer. You can buy a set along with the 5 Couleurs Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette.

4. REVLON Colour Stay Lip – I haven’t been using this 24/7, and you need to apply it right. Don’t put it over or under any lipstick. I made this mistake recently when I was out shopping and it made my lips looked cracked, flakey and were peeling. It’s best to put just a little bit on, and leave, without any lipstick, because it’s a colour stay it will dry, and when putting on other products it can go yucky.

5. Christian Dior Addict Lipstick – I bought it for $50 in the Dior Shop in Melbourne. My choice of colour is called “Lucky”, number 536, and the reason why I love it is because it’s a contrast between pink and red. it is not too pinky and not too red!! It’s the right colour for me, (it suits my olive skin colour) and is the perfect lipstick, that I have been carrying around with me to touch up when it starts to disappear. Christian Dior is a FAVOURITE brand of mine, and when I purchased the lipstick and lash plump primer I got two products for free with a Christian Dior Make Up bag. They are a world renowned brand with a marvellous reputation of customer service. The lash primer is the BEST product/innovation ever made!!! It helps curl the lashes, and leaves them primed to help the mascara work better.

These are great beauty products to chuck in your bag when in a rush or for going out anywhere! Whether you’re going out to the shops, beach or restaurant. These products are a few of my “favourite things”… and I hope you will enjoy using them too!! Click on the highlighted words to buy what you want. Life’s too short, so buy your girly stuff, and live a little!!!

ITS ALL ABOUT THE BASE

3 step Pampering Session


Today I spent most of my day in the city of Melbourne, and towards the end of the day I walked into the Swarovski jewellery store and looked in the mirror and was horrified with the way I looked… Because I looked quite tired and at the end of the day my makeup didn’t look fresh.

When I got home I was happy with one of my purchases from a store in South Melbourne. I felt like I needed a total pampering session, so I have put together some products for you to try. For a complete skincare regime I recommend you use the following products:

1. Exfoliation – Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub. It has blue energising microbeads that sweeps away dead skin cells and removes all dirt and makeup that has been on your skin all day.

2. Clay Purifying Mask – Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr refines and purifies the skin leaving it feeling soft and moist. It is for all skin types.

3. Night Time Moisturiser – Arbonne RE9 Advanced Night Repair Creme – I totally swear by this product at the moment, I have been using it every night on my skin before bed, no matter what other products I have been using.

This skincare regime will leave you feeling totally pampered, relaxed and clean. I have only just made this regime up, but if you feel like it doesn’t work for you, no pressure!!! I believe a good step by step skincare program is beneficial for great skin.

Happy Shopping and enjoy being pampered. You deserve it!!!
