To be honest I don’t know what skin type I have. I kinda just press my finger to my skin and if it feels oily I’ll get out the blotting paper, but I can’t tell the difference if it’s oily. I’m pretty sure it’s not oily, I have a feeling it’s probably dry to normal. Currently, I’m experiencing some dry patches, but I think it’s because I’m not looking after myself properly, at the moment. I think maybe I’m not drinking enough water, it probably doesn’t help with the social drinks you attend. I just never had the acne problem that other teenagers had. (Ed’s note – Lalaine, has amazing skin, it’s at this point in the interview that I was like, this girl, I want her pores. Non-existent pores. Clear glowing skin. Want. Want. Want.)
I PROMISE I’M HERE TO STAY!
It’s been some time since my last post! There have been a number of events that have taken place since my last post and I have found myself getting busier and busier! All in a good way of course. But while I’m here, I will be uploading a few posts that have gone under my radar out of sheer laziness and also because I simply have not had the time to do so. You know, you come home from work, you want a horribly mind numbing TV show, a slice of something that is artery clogging and a stiff drink? Well, that’s how busy I’ve been, especially since the holiday season beckons and the temperature rises (which, if you live in Auckland, we all know that that factor has been missing). Work is fabulous and everything else is just as rewarding, however I still need time to myself. But I digress, the absence was not permanent, I’m back and I’m here to stay.
Stay Beautiful xx
Emma Stone was on the red carpet for the UK premiere of The Help, which by the way is an amazing movie. She looked beautifully polished in Luca Luca and her make-up was IMMACULATE.
This video says it all. BB creams, also known as Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm creams are extremely popular in the Asian market. The drawback is for darker skinned girls, that want a product like this. I can’t understand why they wouldn’t have formulas that cover a wider range of shades. It’s puzzling and plain annoying. Here is another product that may take a few years before us darker complexioned women can get our hands on something that seems both beneficial and well-rounded.
You know summer is just around the corner, when your local green grocer is stocked full berry goodness. In this case, I’ve picked some raspberries and strawberries. I couldn’t find snozberries, I believe Willy Wonka had us all fooled, they don’t exist.
The health benefits of green tea have been contested within numerous research articles, namely its efficacy against cardiovascular and free radical damage. However green tea has been known to contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and the percentage of polyphenols within green tea can help with signs of aging if used topically over a period of time. I’m not going to get all text-book and recite this to you like it’s a University paper. Which this definitely isn’t. Keep reading for more…
Watching the Emmy’s today, a plethora of reds and shimmering dresses ruled the red carpet. A few sighs and some head shaking. All a bit of a snooze-fest to be honest. For me the stand out was Sofia Vergara. With her very Colombian take on coral. Her make-up was flawless, the iridescent glow, like she had actually eaten something that day, could not be faulted in any way. She was the one stunner, in my opinion. Those earrings, a beautiful contrast to the bold coral. The dress, with the beautiful shape and ruching in the right places. This was a winner. What a great look. And as we approach a hot NZ summer, I dare you to wear a bright lippy and don a delicious dress. Do it! I know you want to.

I’m back from Sydney/Queenstown and I am working on a few posts, firstly my interview with Lalaine Alano (Stylist Extraordinaire) has gone missing from my ITunes and without that my memory will not permit me to write a random off the top of my head transcript. You following? Continue reading
