In a bid to find The Perfect Grey Polish, I've put my talons to the test.
These four fine shades - ideal for work and weekends - came out on top. Say hello to...
As a beauty editor, I've tested my fair share of lipsticks. Red, in particular, has grown to become a firm favourite. But, when faced with never-ending beauty counters, finding the right red just for you can be a little bit daunting, yes?
Put simply red lip colours are split into two groups. Coral reds (which have an orange undertone) work well at adding warmth to the complexion while blue reds (which yep, you guessed it...
Right now, these three items are on high rotation in my Céline Trio Bag.
YSL Y-Mail Zip Wallet, $650; cultstatus.com.au.
I receive compliments whenever I pull this out. It's one of my most prized possessions.
YSL Top Secrets Beauty Sleep, $99; 1300 651 991.
Once a week, I pop a leave-on mask at night and let my skin drink it up - this one is particularly great when travelling and you're in need of...
I'm sure you've heard about oils.
You've probably tried leave-in argan oils like Moroccanoil. You may even be a fan of face oils, which when used as a night treatment can rehydrate the skin wonderfully. But what about oil shampoo? Seems odd to fight oil with oil, doesn't it? Well, the truth is that's a myth.
Shu Uemura Art of Hair recently arrived on our Australian shores. Famed for their cult facial...
After a two and a half year hiatus, I'm back!
During my time as Beauty Editor at InStyle Magazine, I've interviewed people who have made me laugh, written stories that have made me cry and watched over 30 shiny, glossy issues go to print with that same fuzzy feeling I get when I see it in the newsagents a few days later (if you would like to, you can view my work
Every woman is guilty of trying to dress her man. Well, I know I am. MW and I were chatting about chinos and boat shoes today and fortunately we both love the look. Now, I'm on a mission to find him the perfect pair.
I think I have a new man crush...
Do you like?
Or do you dislike?
So I'm sick. My glands are up and I'm currently eating ice-cream to soothe my sore throat.
What better medicine than to look at blogs for inspiration. While gazing over my favourite websites, I couldn't help but notice so many images of fur jackets!
What is your stance on fur?
I'd love to know what you think.
Mandy Shadforth, Artist and Founder of fashion blog www.oraclefox.com.
When she's not surfing breaks across Bali, Mandy Shadforth is blogging and capturing beautiful photography. I caught up with the beautiful artist to chat all things fashion and beauty and to find out about her brainchild, Oracle Fox.
How did Oracle Fox come about? What inspired you to start your blog?
I started Oracle Fox in August 2010. The reason I started...
The collection consists of 11 pieces with each item's details carefully considered yet perfectly subtle.
Elin says 'it's a modern, light and minimalistic collection with bohemian influences.'
"The result is a strong and clear collection, where silhouette and materials are more important than decoration," says Elin.
Yesterday MW and I decided to venture outside of our Bondi hub and spend a day in the city.
Our day began by catching a train from Bondi Junction to Circular Quay and the excitement of the day really began there.
We boarded the train and as I stepped through the open carriage doors, I swore I saw a man reading a book in his underwear. No, I must've been seeing things. Surely. MW and...
Have you seen the latest shots from Shakuhachi's pre-fall campaign titled Shoot Me?
These shots were taken by my snapper buddy, Byron Spencer. You can check out Byron's photography blog, Champagne Hangover here and his model sister Alexandra Spencer's blog, 4th And Bleeker here.
With a collection palette full of limes, blues, golds and peaches, Shakuhachi's latest offering also includes batwing jumpsuits, loose gold lamé jackets (hello!) and silk chiffon...
Aside from writing for my dream magazine, it's one of my biggest dreams in life to create a wall-sized bookshelf in my home.
There's something about books that makes me want to sit on a cosy chair with a cup of tea, smell the printed paper and read them for hours on end.
I imagine myself reading in silence with the company of my dear friend Katie.
No words spoken; just words written.
One day I will build...
A post of pictures; not words.
I give you Christine Centenera: Harper's BAZAAR Australia Fashion Editor and The Most Stylish Woman On Earth.
