benefit 1

You should all know by now how much I love Benefit Costmetics. They're a girls-girl beauty brand that doesn't follow fashion trends or focus on artistry, instead concentrates on solving the problems women face. I like that. I like that their products do what they promise in an easy to understand way, I'm sure its one of the many reasons why so many of my readers have jumped on the bandwagon too. I don't back a product unless I love it, you guys know that. The brand ethos is so in sync with my ... [ Discover More ]

How to buy Benefit Cosmetics Products

benefit

I can't remember the exact moment I discovered Benefit Cosmetics but I've been a bonafide BeneBabe for a few years now. I love it's reflective qualities, the lightness of the product on my skin and most importantly, how they do what they say they'll do. I've featured many different items on my blog, included them in how-to videos and I've been sure to share any discount codes I find along the way. I was inspired to write this post as I get asked this question a lot, only yesterday a new haul of ... [ Discover More ]

Simply Country

I live in a beautiful part of the country called The Hawkesbury, about an hour out of Sydney and as much as I complain about the commute in for events and how much I lust for a little townhouse in city I'm also secretly head over heels with where we live. It's full of rolling hills, rivers and streams, farms and settlers cottages and the best op shops around. I don't live in the best parts of town but it suits our little family just fine. We can walk to school, to the grocer and to the post ... [ Discover More ]

The Clothes Swap in Part Three was full on and fabulous, talk about a bonding experience!

Aussie Curves – Blue

AC_Blue-1

I always knew that for this week's theme "Blue" I would wear this skirt. I have so many blue items but this one is always my standout piece. It's super comfy with stretchy fabric and a great length for me going all the way from my waist to my knee. I usually layer it with a singlet, cardigan and flats for a casual "Mumma" look or I can dress it up with a nice blouse and heels.

Aussie Curves – Picnic

AC_PICNIC-1

Last week's 'Stripes' theme was fun, it pushed me a little bit out of my comfort zone and I'm not even 100% sure I pulled it off. This week's theme is 'Picnic' which basically means no rules so I was determined to keep my look laid back and simple, everyday Danimezza style. I packed 'the most beautiful picnic basket in the world' with lots of delicious goodies for us to eat in the late afternoon sun. I made a fresh batch of brownies just for the occasion and splashed out on some yummy cheese. ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Stripes

Wow, you guys really loved last week's theme "Tribal", I was totally blown away by the response. This week's theme is "Stripes" and would you believe I didn't pack a single striped garment when I went to Hayman! Such a beautiful place for photos and I had nothing to wear! Tragic I know but this afternoon Steve came home a bit early and took these pics for me so I could catch up with the rest of the crew. Seriously if I don't have my Aussie Curves post up on on a Monday morning I feel like I'm ... [ Discover More ]
