    If ever there was a picture of sun kissed perfection it would have to be this: total bronzed babe (and with her own fake tan range no less!), Kimmy K. She is the flawless epitome of honey caramel (and let me tell you a lil’ secret –  she works hard to achieve it. Ms Kardashian… more

    Fri, 11 February 2011 7:44AM

    It’s funny, yknow. Every time I divert away from being a raging lunatic, writing nonsense and having fun with beauty, (or anything, really) and start having a Serious Opinion on something, it almost always backfires. Like that time I wrote about V12 Jaguars being the best car to carry oil you need to dump into the… more

    Should I be applying sunscreen before moisturiser? I’m so happy you asked this question, Talithaw. I can rant and rave enough about the importance of wearing SPF everyday of your life!

  • The MOCA Annual Gala attendees give us another reason to wear sunscreen. (As if we needed one.)

    Mon, 15 November 2010 5:08PM

    I have always been HUGE advocate of sunscreen, Primps. Always. And yes, that did mean I was teased a little when I was the only youngster at school slopping on the white gooey stuff daily, but even back then I knew protecting my skin was worth it. So I just sucked the teasing up and… more



  • Primpers, there’s no such thing as safe tanning

    Fri, 6 February 2009 11:29AM

    Playing it safe. It’s something that instinctively, we all try and do. We cross at the lights to avoid getting hit, eat organic food to steer clear of pesticides and inject ourselves with Botox from the age of 25, just in case we ever get a wrinkle. Yet, despite all our efforts to keep healthy… more

    Fri, 6 February 2009 9:26AM

  • Do you even know what SPF means? Do you? Huh?

    Tue, 3 February 2009 10:04AM

    You probably don’t. Seriously. I didn’t till a few years back. And now I like to tell everyone that I ever meet (waitresses, news paper delivery boys, celebrities) exactly what it means. Here’s a clue: It has nothing to do with the strength of your sun protection. Nothing at all. Welcome to Day II of… more


  • It’s a beautiful day for cancer.

    Fri, 30 January 2009 1:24PM

    That got your attention, didn’t it. Sadly, I can’t take the credit for it. It’s the title of a song by Ohssie rapper Al Bino, and I thought it was the perfect opening for a week full of sun-related beauty on PRIMPED. Welcome to Sun of a Beach, in which we really, really, really drive… more
