Reader Survey : Please Help Me!!!


Hi everyone!  Sorry for no new posts recently but I’ve been dealing with Miss Crankypants aka my baby girl all week as she is going through some 12 week growth spurt thingo!  Anyway, I NEED YOUR HELP!!!  I have conducted my first every official Reader Survey because I need to know your input and feedback to determine the future of this blog.  Without you, my dear readers, this blog is nothing!!!  Please, please, please click through and tell me your honest feedback.  It’s just a short wee survey with 8 questions but it will help me figure out a few things I am planning to work on.  And I will blog about all the results in a few weeks.  Thank you kindly for your time!

UPDATE :  Thanks to all those who participated in this survey.  The results are here.

Advertorial : Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

I’m going to start off today’s post with a bit of beauty trivia…

The Number 1 matte foundation in Australia is…*drumroll please*…  And do you know when it was launched?  It was launched in 2005 – 8 years ago!  Wow!

With that in mind, my expectations were pretty high before trialling this foundation so let’s see if it delivered…

(Oh…and there’s a $150 Maybelline prize pack giveaway at the end so do keep reading, ladies *winks*)

When I speak to my non-beauty blogging friends around my age (late twenties / early thirties) about skincare, they always look at me as if I am crazy for using anti-aging skincare products.  They think I am “too young” – like hello?  I’ve been using anti-aging products since my early twenties!  How else can I get away with looking like I’m younger than my actual age?!!  Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is one the newest anti-aging power packed serums to hit the beauty market.  I was given the privilege to trial this for review and better still, there’s one to giveaway to one lucky Aussie reader (more on that later).

How hot was last weekend in Melbourne?!  And we’re still in Spring!!  With Summer round the corner for all of us who live in Australia, the pressure is on to look cute in our Summer dresses and to strut our hot stuff in bikinis.  Not only have I joined the gym to lose the flab but I have also been involved in a sponsored trial* of Elixia BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème to help me ‘create the perfect silhouette’ (and you can win one too but more on that later!)


WIN : The Best Beauty Blog 2nd Birthday Giveaway

Woop woop de woop!  It’s my birthday today!  I am having an awesome day and I thank all those who have sent me lovely birthday messages.  With regards to my surgical op, I am officially on the mend and I have started to eat 🙂  Sadly, it was unsuccessful but I am going to see my surgeon again on Wednesday to see what can be done.  Le sigh.  Anyway, let’s be happy and celebrate because due to the success of last year’s birthday giveaway, I am throwing another one today.  Let’s make it an annual thing, yeah?  If giveaways aren’t your cuppa tea, you can wish me a Happy Birthday in the comments 😛
