WIN: A diamond with Olay

As a purveyor of all things sparkly, my radar went off when I found out that Olay is giving you the chance to win a diamond. Shiny!

Simply run through the questionnaire and at the end they will recommend some Olay products and you might find yourself the owner of a shiny new diamond.

Good luck!

Sunday Short n Sweet: By Lauren Luke Makeup

I love hearing about people who find success despite adversity.Lauren Luke is one of those people.

Lauren has quite a cult following on YouTube, with a HUGE 40 million views of her videos. Before that, she was just a single mum living in the North East of England trying to make do working as a telephone operator for a taxi company. Teased for her looks as a child, Lauren now has the ultimate revenge. Success based on the face that her schoolmates ridiculed.

She is working on a book, blogs for The Guardian in the UK, is the online ambassador for Barry M makeup and also has time to post how-to guides every week. Busy lady!

Oh and Lauren has just released a new range of makeup called By Lauren Luke now available at Sephora. Since we can't get a hold of it in Australia, lets take a look at the launch video:

If you would like to see more of Lauren, you can visit her website, YouTube blog, follow her on Twitter and check out her products on Sephora.

Happy 40th Birthday Kiehls Lip Balm #1

It's hard to believe, but Keihl's #1 Lip Balm is 40 years old! In this day, it is so rare to find a beauty product that is more than about 5 years old, so to have a lip product survive almost half a century should be celebrated.

Of course, Keihl's have brought out a Limited Edition kit comprising of 6 Lip Balms in Coconut, Cranberry, Mango, Mint, Vanilla, and Original illustrated in the original drawing and each containing a little fact about the product.

Step to it, these are not going to last!
