EmerginC Multi Vitamin + Retinol Serum


Apparently you don’t need to use a serum until you’re 26 years old, Heck I’m 23 next week and there’s nothing wrong with starting early.

Having youthful wrinkle free skin is VERY important. It means instead of spending thousands of dollars on botox when you’re 50 you can go on a tropical holiday with your loved one – as long as you pack the sunscreen! Proper skin care can delay the natural aging process and may prevent skin problems in the future. Protecting your skin from the sun, not smoking and using a good quality skincare are 3 easy ways to have beautiful youthful skin!


Serum should be used morning and night. Apply on clean skin (face & neck) For maximum benefit follow with your favourite emerginC cream.

So that’s where EmerginC multi vitamin & retinol serum comes into play. Just like you should take a multi-vitamin daily for health & wellbeing you should do the same for your skin. This super serum fights free radical damage, contains an antioxidant and helps increase cellular turnover. It also strengthens skin, can diminish the appearance of broken capillaries, hydrates, improves tone & texture and soothes skin. Wow that’s a lot of good things all in one little bottle – It’s one of the most comprehensive multi-vitamin serums available with airtight active ingredient encapsulation.

You only need 1-2 pumps to cover your whole face and neck as it is quite concentrated. The texture is great its not oily and very lightweight on the skin, It goes on smooth and gives the skin a very glowing effect – I can actually feel it already working my skin! Can’t wait to see the long term results!

O.M.G my hair is on FIRE!



De Lorenzo Extinguish Thermal Protection Spray

Think about how many times your hair is prone to heat? i can think of many… hot water in the shower, heat from the sun when outdoors, blow drying hair, using heated styling tools like straighteners, curlers or hot rollers, we can use heat from 80 degrees up to 200 degrees on our little hair strands!

Let’s face it, we all know heat damages hair – it dries it out and causes all types of damage like split ends causing us to have fizzy, rough, dead hair and eventually the hair can fall out. ouch!

Using a thermal protection spray such as Extinguish is designed to minimise damage and stress to the hair when using hot appliances to straighten or curl. Extinguish is a unique product that not only protects your strands but helps smooth and control unruly hair. It can protect your hair from heat up to 240 degrees C.

What’s in it? Made from Australian Desert Raisin that protects the hair from photo-oxidation and provides added sheen. Goji berry which adds 19 amino acids which are the building blocks of protein and vitamins B, E and C. And Lycopene a naturally occuring anti-oxident thats found in desert raisins that boost nutritional qualities and preserve the freshness and vitality of the hair.

Directions are very simple: Spray onto hair before applying heat!

i used it

I used it on my hair this morning before it blow dryed then used my GHD for a once over to calm the frizzes

I feel good knowing I’m PROTECTING my hair against heat damage, just as you would protect your skin from sun damage.

To mark the return of Lovers comeback after a 5 year no show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, the polished label closed Day 1 of RAFW at the Sydney Opera House Studio.

The White Serpent, Lover’s 2011/2012 SS collection draws inspiration from Chinese mythology, the collection brought to life the beauty of romance “tempered by tragedy”.

Lace took centre-stage in a seductive way and is a trend to watch this season. Lover has perfected it with their French lace and leather in hues of red, white and black that were effortlessly styled with sharp tailoring. Delicate dresses, and long sheer gowns teamed with statement shoes and a bold red lip toughened up the looks on the runway.






Trends at RAFW:

So far, seen at every show this week Lace has been the predominant trend. Used throughout most of Lover’s collection, Therese Rawsthorne and Zimmermann also used lace in their shows.



Lover, Therese Rawsthorne and Manning Cartell presented sheer in their collections along with with floaty materials and thigh-high hems.
