  • My Travel Beauty Diary: Milanese Makeup, St Tropez-Style Beach Hair, Parisian Pretties & More!

    Mon, 22 April 2013 5:30PM

    Right about now, I’m struggling to come to terms with the fact that I’m sitting on a swivel chair in downtown industrial Alexandria (extra-strong chai in hand, desperately trying to keep my jetlag at bay) rather than lounging on some red velvety banquette in a swank Parisian bar (kir royal in hand). Yes, that sound you… more



  • Video: My Beauty Playlist – The French Holiday Edition

    Thu, 28 March 2013 2:45PM

    Bonjour Primpers! Oui, Oui! I’m about to jet off on a French jaunt. But before I do, I just wanted to check in and let you know about some of the beauty goodies I’m packing for my trip. Because we all know how chic those Frenchies are – and there’s no way I’m going to turn… more



  • Lessons We Can Learn From the Ever-Chic French

    Mon, 4 March 2013 2:09PM

    This might be a massive, sweeping generalisation but in my opinion, French women just don’t seem to age. Well, they do of course, but in a very natural, slow, graceful way that would make Joan Rivers cringe in disbelief. I, for one, am all for it. Now that Paris Fashion Week is in its closing days,… more

  • Paris A/W ’13: Little-Black-Dress Beauty (Plus, Melissa George’s Parisian Makeover)

    Fri, 1 March 2013 12:55PM

    There’s a word I love in French: ‘cocotte’. You might know it: in English, it refers to a small ramekin dish (No? Now you do). In French, it historically means ‘prostitute’, but has come to mean, well, ‘floozy’ and ‘minx’ come to mind. Not in a negative way, mind you. A French man might call… more



  • Paris A/W ’13: Obsessing Over Burgundy Lipstick and a Bit of Backlight at Anthony Vaccarello

    Wed, 27 February 2013 10:53AM

    Bonjour, mes amies! Chic alors! Ooh la la! C’est la vie! And all that. Paris Fashion Week has officially begun. And how. The first main show was Anthony Vaccarello. And sure, the designer doesn’t sound like a quintessential Frenchie. Like someone of the name, say, Jean-Paul Baguette might. But Monsieur Vaccarello certainly does know how to capture a… more



  • Beauty Crush: Josephine de la Baume

    Wed, 26 September 2012 4:32PM

    As the fashion world says arrivederci to Milan for another season and turns a sartorial eye to the runways of Paris, I start to get excited. Pourquoi? Because it’s simply my favourite city in the world. Because I can’t wait to see what Karl Lagerfeld has dreamed up to decorate the Chanel catwalk (and the colour he’ll… more



  • Vive la Beauté! Products to Go Ooh La La Over this Bastille Day, Plus WIN a Klorane Dry Shampoo

    Fri, 13 July 2012 2:06PM

    Anyone who has ever met me for even a micro-second knows that I am beyond obsessed with anything French. The country, the language, the accent (honestly, I could happily listen to a Frenchie talk about his blocked toilet for days), the history (even the gory Revolution bit), the it girls, the champagne, Ladurée*, the fashion… more



  • Sole Searching … The Story of my Obsession with Perfect Feet

    Mon, 26 March 2012 12:48PM

    When I finished high school, I and all of my savings went off to Paris for a couple of months. Because the idea of this holiday was about the only thing that sustained me through the stress of year 12, I had done ridiculous amounts of research to plan out the perfect trip, all of… more

  • SAG How To: Marion Collitard’s French Chic

    Wed, 27 January 2010 10:24AM

    I realise its Australia Day and all but I just want to celebrate the French for a moment; they just do beauty sooo well. Non? Must be something in those croissants. Or maybe it’s in their cosmetics kit? Clue: It’s the latter, and Marion has mastered it by keeping it clean and simple; a flawless… more
