Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week - Sydney Review

Sydney Fashion Week is back. And this year all of the Australian designers have come together to put together a review in one fashion show.

Main hall, while we waited to get seated.

So who was the stand-out? Alex Perry in my opinion.

Stunning dresses that I am dying to own in my wardrobe.

I saw a trend - camel and mustard. It appears that it's so popular with all of the designers.

Kirrily Johnston

More camel and mustard

Let's dance! Beautiful white Bowie dress.

Men in tux. Now I want to go to a ball.

Pretty white gown with a big bow.

Another trend - graphica.

Clean Your Face!

There are so many different types of cleansers available on the market for people to clean their faces. So I thought I might break it down and spell out the different types and how they are different.

What triggered this? Product testing some new products that I’ve been sent.

So, the basics, what is a cleanser? A cleanser helps to remove the dirt, oil and grime from your face so you wash the day away and prevent pimples or blemishes from forming.

Foaming Cleanser

This baby is great in the shower. Lather it up with some water and it leaves your skin feeling clean. However, it does over strip the skin so you might feel tight and uncomfortable. In that case, it’s best to avoid this product and choose something calmer, continue reading…

Pictured above is the The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser, perfect for Oily skin.

Cleansing Lotion

This is used with a cotton pad and no water. You can choose to use water but it’s thick and a lot of the product does tend to stay on the face. I find it doesn’t remove all of the oil effectively.

Pictured above is Jurlique’s Cleansing Lotion, perfect for a dryer or sensitive skin.

Cleansing Oil

So you might be thinking, yuck I want to remove oil from my face so why would I be applying oil back onto my face. The answer is simple, you are removing it because it emulsifies when it comes into contact with water and you are putting moisture back into the skin so the skin doesn’t overproduce oil and cause pimples.

Pictured above is Shu Uemura’s Cleansing Oil. There are different kinds of cleansing oil depending if you are oily to extra dry. I love this because it calms my skin down and decreases my breakouts. Highly recommended.

Last but not least, cleaning your face is really important. Do it twice a day :)

What's Next on the Box

I thought I might share with you guys, some of the tv shows that I've been loving and have enjoyed.

Some are rubbish so they are pure entertainment and some will make you cry!!

Here goes...

The Voice

A good natured music, talent show that has a new twist on the competition.

The judges are Cee Lo (the guy who sang F* You, Good Luck), Christina Aguilera (Dirrty, Beautiful and Ain't No Other Man), Adam Levine (Maroon 5 She Will be Loved) and Blake (some country singer from the US).

The chemistry between the judges are so good. Cee Lo is that sleazy guy but he is amazingly talented, Christina and Adam BICKER non-stop it's fun to watch them argue like they are brother and sister, Adam himself is a joker and cracks me up and Blake...he's funny too.

The concept is at the Blind Auditions, the judges turn their chairs around when they love the performer's voice and want the performer to be part of their team to win the title of The Voice.

Watch it on Go!

The Bachelorette - Ashley

So this lovely and the most sweetest girl got dumped from the last season of The Bachelor but no fear this dentist student is back to find love at 27!

What makes this season so interesting is that there is a masked constestant who doesn't reveal his face throughout the thing, a guy who is a suspect for his ex-wife's death, two arseholes but the bigger arsehole is below.

So this guy - his name is BENTLEY does everything he can to make Ashley fall in love with him just so he feels like he is winning the game.
On camera, he blantly states that she isn't his type, she's ugly and their making out sucks.
He does a lot worse.
Watch this season on Go!

Same Name

Last but not least is Same Name.

The concept is two people in America, one famous, the other not famous, just your average Joe switch places for a week!
The episode of Reggie Bush - the American football star who was with Kim Kardashian for years and years made me cry when he decided to donate and give to a small community.
The celebrities include Kathy Griffiths, Reggie Bush and Don't Hassle the Hoff.
It's good fun and good entertainment.

'Till next time!
