Finding the silver lining

04 Feb 2008 | Posted by Editor

Well, it appears that a grey, soaking weekend in Sydney is not the ideal time to try and book a spot in your favourite spa. Or, I guess, it's the very best – so you've got to beat every other girl in town to the punch. And this is a really speedy city.

Which is why I asked make-up maven Victoria Baron for guidance
