Showtime by Kylie


Stars and celebrities being used to advertise and market perfume seems to be the norm nowadays. There is a new one called "Showtime" by Kylie Minogue. I really like the design of it. The perfume is a sparkling fruity fragrance which features notes of cranberries, strawberries, freesia, licorice, musk and vanilla. Sounds really delicious, doesn't it?

There is currently a promotion, click here to get your free sample from David Jones or Myer.

Ultima II Lightcaptor-C Concentrate


Eyes are one of the first signs of ageing and wear & tear. The sun, constant rubbing of the eyes all contribute to wrinkles and dryness.

The Lightcaptor-C concentrate promises to

- Helps to minimise dryness, wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and lips.

- Provides effective skin smoothing without without irritation.

The sales lady also mention that it has Vitamin C in it to lighten and brighten the eye area as well as massaging it to rid of toxins.

I've used it for a while now and I like the roller ball as it doesn't pull at the eyes. It also gives a good massage. My eye area definitely looks a lot brighter now. As I don't really have much wrinkles or fine lines, not sure how effective in that area. I bought it mainly for the puffiness that I get when I wake up in the morning and for the lightening effect.

Luv ~ Love the massage that the roller ball gives. I can still use it once it's empty by applying other eye cream next time and using this to massage it in. My eye area definitely was a lot brighter.

Don't Luv ~ Can be $$$.

Tone and Trim Your Legs While Walking


I recently got myself a pair of this and I absolutely love it. Best pair of thongs a.k.a flip flops that I have ever used.

It definitely costs me a lot of $$$ but worth every penny. What makes it worth its weight in gold? It is said to give your legs a work out with every step you take. So, you are burning more calories while wearing this as well as giving some of the small muscles in your legs a bit of a workout.

Its uniquely built multi-density midsole activates muscles midstep to help tone your thighs, your calves and your glutes. In fact, Fit Flops are biomechanically engineered to absorb shock, lessen joint strain, and recreate the gait of barefoot walking - but with a powerful new built-in micro-wobbleboard workout-enhancing effect.

There is a video here which explains how the sole works. It is basically split into three sections. The end is a cushion heel area which absorbs 36% more shock. Mid section uses micro-wobble board technology which slows the eversion rate and requires more energy to walk. The toe section is firmer which promotes faster toe push off to maintain the same walking rate.

This has been one of the most comfortable thongs I've walked in. I can walk in it all day and it really absorbs the shock of hard surfaces so that my feet doesn't feel really sore and tired. The tiredness comes from my calves and bum which means that I am using those muscles!

I will gladly wear this 24/7 if I can, not to mention that the thicker sole adds a few more Cm's to my height. Now I just need to wait till there are other styles that are more suitable for work and formal situations.

Check out their website for more details.

Luv ~ Can walk in it all day and my heels don't feel the brunt of the shock of walking on hard surfaces. Ultra comfortable, increases my height. Works our your legs and bums.

Don't Luv ~ Limited styles and colours.
