Gallery: Getting to know Jennifer Lawrence

  • Post a comment


Heard of Jennifer Lawrence? Chances are probably not. Sure, she’s made the red carpet rounds and has been in a film or two, but she’s not quite reached superstar status.


The beautiful blonde actress plays the lead role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, the highly anticipated book-trilogy-turned film (think: the next Twilight) set to be released in Australia (and worldwide) next week. Which means it’s only a matter of time before Jennifer’s star status explodes in Hollywood and all over the world.

So, to make sure you’re not left hiding under any rocks in a couple months, allow us to introduce to you Hollywood’s soon-to-be ‘It Girl’, Jennifer Lawrence…

Get to know Hollywood’s sweetheart, Emma Stone…

You know that Alexa Chung is the queen of style, but what don’t you know about her?...




Do you know who Jennifer Lawrence is? Are you excited for the release of The Hunger Games?

No clue who she is, but the celebrity who's who is not my thing.

Haven't heard the name at all, and she doesn't look familiar, but she's a stunner and judging by these photographs, has all the makings of a Hollywood hottie. But I must be the only person on the planet not mad about all these relatively recent vampire movies and books...

I don't wear much green - it's just not my colour but if I did, it will just be a simple top or maybe light green nail polish.

The beauty quick fix that’ll change your life

  • Post a comment

I don’t know about you, but I’ve started getting a bit lazy about certain things. Things like making it to gym more than once a week, eating healthily all the time, and washing my hair every three days (hey, if you had to spend an hour getting your hair manageable, you’d be lazy about it, too!).

And while there aren’t really any quick fixes for diet and exercise (if only it could be so easy), we can all thank our lucky stars that there is one for those I-really-couldn’t-be-bothered-to-wash-my-hair days. Where would us lazy girls be without you, dearest dry shampoo?

So what do our members (including me) have to say about their favourite dry shampoos? Read on to find out…

TIGI BED HEAD Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo
“I've tried every dry shampoo out there and this is easily my favourite. It's not powdery like most others, and doesn't leave white/grey in your hair. It's easy to use, smells great, very effective, and can also be used as a volumiser. It's a bit more expensive than most but it's a quality product and lasts much longer than the cheaper varieties. The packaging is really cool too.” – Sneaky

Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo
“This really is the best dry shampoo I have ever tried. What I like about it most is that it actually smells really nice, unlike other dry shampoos that smell like yucky chemicals. It’s a great thing to use and I keep it in my bag for when I get oily roots and can’t wash my hair (good for when your on the go). It comes in a clever lightweight can so it’s easy to store anywhere. I just love it!” – Soosh

De Lorenzo Essential Treatments Absorb Dry Shampoo
“This is by far the best dry shampoo I have used. It absorbs well, doesn't leave any powdery residue and the smell is not overpowering. I have very oily hair and it works a treat, don't have to wash my hair every day if I don't want to. It does cost a little more but it is worth it. Definitely one to have in the bathroom cupboard!” – Hooha

Fudge URBAN Dry Shampoo, $10.99, 1300 764 437
“Trying new dry shampoos has become a (admittedly weird) habit for me, and I was not disappointed to have given this one a whirl. The dry shampoo contains micro-powders, which worked a dream in leaving my hair a bit cleaner and definitely a lot fresher for that extra day before an actual wash. The scent was an added bonus – nicely fragranced without being overpowering. Note to brunettes (or those with balayage like me): make sure to brush the product through after, you don’t want to look like you have grey hairs just yet!” – bh’sCarli

I have never used dry shampoo before but I think I am going to try it because people are saying how convenient and good it is.
My beauty quick fix for my hair is to just put it up and secure with a Eco Jaw Clip, excelllent product.

I am not a fan of the Batiste brand... the spray is far too pressurised and its hard to manage.
I havent tried any other brands of dry shampoo but i would defiantly want to, not repurchasing batiste again

How-to: Rapunzel braid

  • Post a comment

Is it just me, or as a child did you watch Jasmine and Aurora on screen in your favourite Disney flicks in awe, thinking

 you were bound to be in store for some serious sultry locks when you were old enough?


Yeah – me too. Which is why I think it’s high time we get our comeuppance. I have sought out a braid that would have Rapunzel clutching at her seriously lengthy strands and gasping. This ‘do may not make your hair as long as her infamous locks, but the ‘Rapunzel braid’ will definitely look pretty cool – and who wants to maintain hair that long anyway?


We used: Scunci Grooming Clear Polybands

Check out how simple it is to pull of the ‘Rapunzel braid’…



What do you think about the Rapunzel braid?

I like the idea of a repunzel braid. But, I can't find the video when I click on it, I go to the beachy waves do. I scrolled thru side menu and it wasn't there.

Beauty news: skin care saviour

  • Post a comment

It’s the quest of every maturing woman worth her weight in moisturiser to find the answer to youthful-looking skin. And boy, is it often a long, confusing, and cosmetic-filled journey!

Which is why, when we notice that an anti-ageing product range is getting top star ratings from our members, we have to bring it to your attention – it’s our beauty duty after all.

One range that’s been getting some great reviews of late is Elucent. It’s a dermatologist recommended line of skin and body care products that combines the anti-ageing benefits of AHAs with the nourishing and beautifying benefits of vitamins. Here’s what your fellow members have been saying about the various products in the Elucent range:

Elucent Day Moisturiser
“This moisturiser has a light and creamy texture, it applies easily on the skin and is not thick like some SPF 30 moisturizers. Skin feels smooth and hydrated, and make-up glides on easily over the top. I love the fact it has SPF 30+, which is essential requirement for me. I also use this for the anti-aging factor and AHA content helps to keep the skin smooth and even.” – PrettyPrincess

Elucent Night Moisturiser
“I love this night cream, since using it especially on my neck and chest area I've noticed a reduction in sun damage and dryness…I've been using the whole range for two months now and have noticed a huge improvement in my skin tone and texture...” – Jasmel05

Elucent Serum
“What I have noticed after using Elucent products for less than a month, is soft, smoother skin. I seem to have more of a youthful glow. I still have pigmentation, but it seems to have lightened ever so slightly, but enough to give me the beginning of a more even skintone. Breakouts have healed quicker. I am sure with further use, I will begin to see more signs of ageing reduced, such as softening of fine lines. I am loving my skin at the moment, thanks to Elucent Serum, an intensive anti-ageing product!” – scentsation






Do you find buying cosmetics confusing? Are you more likely to try a product if bh members recommend it?

I am more likely to try a new product if it is on the natural side and recommended by my peers.

I've never heard of Elucent before but yes, I definitely like to read other beauties reviews and they do affect whether or not I buy the product. I would certainly be more likely to buy if a product gets good reviews.
