Giving everyone at bh serious body envy, Chanel has today debuted a new advertising film starring one of my favourite Brazilian supermodels, Gisele Bündchen.
Entitled “The One That I Want,” the film celebrates the iconic CHANEL N°5 fragrance and sees the supermodel following in the footsteps of Chanel muses Audrey Tautou, Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman.
Produced, conceived and directed by auteur filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, the film tells the story of a modern woman who struggles to make time for herself, family, career and love – something I’m sure we can all identify with!
In the video, Gisele poses in sparkly dresses with a big and bouncy blow-dry, prances through a damp and dark New York alleyway, perhaps my favourite, surfs up a storm in a seriously sexy Chanel wetsuit.
There aren’t any words or dialogue in the film, but with Lo-Fang’s cover of “You’re the One that I Want” as the soundtrack, they’re not really required!
Watch the full video here.

Gisele is so pretty that I am not surprised that they picked her. Overall I don't care for those Chanel ads

It’s a pretty satisfying feeling when you discover your latest beauty purchase does the one thing you really wanted it to do.
So what about when said product does even more than you expected? It’s like there’s an explosion of puppies and rainbows and butterflies in your heart and you just want to happy-dance the day away.
And because there’s nothing we want more than for you to do a jaunty little jig, this is the beauty newbie that’s going to get you there:
The Rimmel London Lasting Finish Primer is, as you may have already guessed, a primer. But let’s take a look at all of the reasons why you’ll want this bad boy in your beauty kit.
#1: IT’LL HELP YOUR MAKE-UP LAST FOR AGES
Okay, let’s get the obvious one out of the way. Apply the primer evenly onto clean skin (paying special attention to your t-zone and under the eyes) and you’ll get another eight hours of wear out of your foundation. For bonus beauty points, combine with the new Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 HR Foundation with Comfort Serum or Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 HR Nude Foundation.
#2: IT’LL REDUCE PORES AND IMPERFECTIONS
The formulation of the primer works to visibly blur any skin imperfections and minimise the appearance of pores – meaning you’ll have a silky smooth canvas to work with.
#3: IT’LL BRIGHTEN YOUR SKIN
Besides helping your skin look instantly smoother, this primer also helps to brighten the appearance of your complexion. Once you’ve applied your foundation over the top, you’ll find your skin looks naturally radiant and healthy. Winning!
#4: IT’LL RECHARGE YOUR SKIN
Make-up always looks better on skin that’s hydrated and nourished. Again, this formula does the trick – it moisturises the skin as it smooths and perfects its surface.
#5: IT CAN BE APPLIED AFTER YOUR MAKE-UP, TOO
Crazy, right? But it’s true – you really can apply this primer on top of your make-up for maximum skin hydration and comfort. Pop it in your handbag and apply as needed during the day.
What’s your favourite multi-tasking product? What do you look for in a primer?

I've yet to find a primer that I really like, but I'm still looking. My favourite multi-tasking products are eye shadow and lipstick. Eye shadow for reasons that BH just highlighted in an article recently - can be used as a shadow, liner, brow filler, etc. And lipstick because it can be used for lips, cheeks and (sometimes) eyes.

When it comes to pursuing a career, many women find it difficult to juggle ‘getting ahead’ with having a family.
Recognising this, both Apple and Facebook are set to introduce a controversial new office ‘perk’: free egg freezing for female employees to allow them to delay parenthood in favour of staying at work.
Like IVF, egg freezing is typically not covered by an employer's health insurance in the US – so both companies will be shelling out up to $US20,000 for women to put their parenting plans on the backburner.
According to a report by NBC News, Facebook already offers the service while Apple’s program begins in January.
While I appreciate the shift towards giving women more of a work-life balance, I can’t help but question whether the move is a little bit insulting. After all, aren’t women supposed to have the opportunity to manage both?
What do you think about Facebook and Apple’s egg freezing offerings? Are you in favour of delaying motherhood in favour of a career, or do you think this is problematic?

I read an article about this earlier today. While this seems like a great benefit, I think it's a bit creepy. I don't want my employer putting this much thought into my fertility and family planning. Plus, having experienced being a younger mom (my first at almost 26) and also an older mom (my 4th will be due when I'm almost 37), I know firsthand that pregnancy becomes much more physically challenging the longer you wait. Taking it for granted that you can delay motherhood may result in many women not having the family size they want if they start late and struggle with the physical consequences of advanced maternal age.

Wow, this is quite a bold move! To me this is kind of like bribing someone to abandon their personal life to work more

If there was a magic trick to make us look young and glowing forever, let’s face it, most of us would be up for waving that magic wand. But until someone invents a miracle youth-preserving potion, we’re happy to age gracefully and arm ourselves with the tricks and know-how to help make ourselves look more youthful every day.
Fortunately, there are many products out there that can instantly help you turn back the clock on your appearance without going under the knife or forking out big dollars on in-salon treatments. From skin care, to make-up, to hair, to health, read on to find out the tips and tricks for looking younger in a matter of seconds.
BLUR THE LINES
Blurring products are definitely a-buzz in the skin care industry, and for a very good reason. Not only do blurring products smooth the skin’s surface, but they can also provide amazing benefits for the skin. Once applied, the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Magic Blur Instant Skin Smoother immediately blurs the appearance of lines, pores and wrinkles while reducing shine thanks to a combination of light reflecting ingredients such as silicon elastomers, silica, and skin smoothing polymers. Following the Instant Skin Smoother with the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Magic Blur Daily Anti-Ageing Moisturiser will not only further improve the appearance of skin with its blurring benefits, but it will also help deliver long-lasting hydration and smooth out wrinkles and lines thanks to the addition of Pro-Retinol A and Dermalift, all at an affordable cost.
COVER GREYS ALL DAY
Whether you have a couple of grey strands here and there or regularly colour over your silvery streaks, keeping grey hair constantly covered can be a hard task. Thankfully, there are products out there that can be used every day to temporarily hide them. The Ambiance Brunette Tinted Volume Styling Dry Shampoo is a coloured dry shampoo that not only refreshes hair, but helps conceal greys by simply dusting the pigmented powder onto your roots. Alternatively, the ModelCo Hair Mascara can be swiped over greys leaving them instantly out of sight. What greys?
Dullness and sallow skin under the eyes does no one any favours when it comes looking young and fresh-faced. The trick is to counteract dark shadows by using a product that will reflect light off that area and make it appear brighter. Arm yourself with an illuminating pen like ck one color 3-in-1 or Jane Iredale Active Light Concealer and blend the product in using your fingertip to give the illusion of luminous, fresh eyes.
GUZZLE THE GREEN STUFF
You’ve probably heard of chlorophyll, but did you know that it’s actually amazingly beneficial for the health of your skin? Sipping around 100 to 200 milligrams of chlorophyll such as Swisse Chlorophyll ($22.95 500mL, www.swisse.com/au) mixed with water each morning can help increase the transportation of oxygen around your body, helping to clear skin, give it a healthy glow and lessen inflammation.
What are your tips for looking instantly younger? Will you be trying any of these tricks?

I noticed that I look much better when I have a decent sleep. When I am sleep deprived I tend to look ten years older! And so tired!
