Estee Lauder's Beauty Secret

I read a lovely beauty Secret from Estee Lauder in December's Harper's Bazaar from Aerin Lauder who is currently Creative Director of Estee Lauder.

"Spray some fragrance on a Mason Pearson Hairbrush before using it to make your hair smell divine"

You'll be able to invite Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Hurley, Carolyn Murphy and Hilary Rhoda into your home — via the web, that is.  The site offers behind the scenes snip bits from the advertising campaigns as well as expert tips for getting that supermodel look at home.

The newly revamped site now features interactive diagnostic tools and step-by-step instruction videos, as well as plenty of makeup and skin care tips. According to WWD it's been designed to take the guesswork out of shopping online. Elana Drell-Szyfer, senior vice president of global marketing for Estée Lauder stated, “These new online tools help us to provide the consumer with a seamless experience from the web site to the counter.”

My favourite aspect is the foundation and skin care finders, which help you find your match in each category. You're taken through a series of analytical questions that are suprisingly detailed. There are also personal profiles for Liz Hurley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Rhoda and Carolyn Murphy that explain their current beauty must-have products and what they wear for the campaigns.

If you want some makeup artist tips on getting that perfect smoky eyed look or ladylike lipstick, then check out the great step-by-step instructional videos. You can also live chat with the Estée Lauder customer service advisors so you can feel as though you're at the beauty counter,when you're lazing around in your pajamas. As though we needed anything else to make shopping for beauty products more appealing!

About It's In The StarsElizabeth_Ball online version

Elizabeth Ball has been passionate about astrology since her grandmother gave her a 1940s book on the subject when she was 12 years old.

She worked for years as a magazine editor, advertising copywriter, PR consultant, freelance journalist and direct marketer while she analysed how compatible her friends were with the boys they liked, and wrote horoscope columns and astrology articles.

Elizabeth created a beautiful compatibility report for a friend who was getting married, and when people kept raving about it and the reports she’d done for a number of children, realised that personalised astrology reports would make fantastic personalised gifts for a range of gift-giving occasions.

She established her astrology company, It's In The Stars in 2005, launching her website at http://www.itsinthestarsonline.com in 2006.

Since then she has delighted hundreds of couples and parents with her amazing insights into their relationships and children through her beautifully designed astrology reports, LoveStars and BabyStars.

61st Emmy Award Red Carpet Looks

I love my award shows and thanks to TIVO I was able to tape the 61st Emmy's to check out the dresses in my own time.

It must be so much fun finding the dress, looking gorgeous and having serious bling on your arm.

Forgive me if the dress is not linked to the name of the Actress or TV series, I am more interested in how the line/design and colours work on the girl.

Some honorary mentions are Toni Collette's dress, she looked great. Sigourney Weaver looked amazing in presenting the last Emmy of the night, the colour looks great on her warm complexion and the shape was very forgiving on her great fugure.

The male presenter look a million bucks too in his white tux. Justin Timberlake could have looked better though, his jacket looked too short and his pants way to big.

I have say Glenn Close's outfit and hair were not my favorite, the black made her look drawn and only the back was a little interesting.

ActressBl_Jason_58427970_Ma

 This dress is just lovely on her, the shape is great but the colour is on the edge of what looks great on her fair feautures. Reds are not the easiest to pull off when you are blond and light skinned and her face looks a little lost in the whole outfit.




ActressLi_Steve_58426357_Ma


The purple dress below looks great on her, the off the shoulder works well for girls who are are not too heavy in the bust and this colour looks amazing on her dark features. Even though purple is a colour that suits everyone (unlike black) the intensity is what can make or break the look. The fact that she has dark hair, a great spray tan and dark eyes make this a perfect choice for her.

ActressCh_Mathe_58425992_Ma

The colour of this dress suits her warm complexion but the style and fabric does not do her any favours. The bust line make her boobs look huge and the fabric reminds me of a curtain.

ActressCh_Steve_58426771_Ma_0

Christine Applegate is gorgeous and she often gets it right on the red carpet but this time the colour and weird shape of the dress does not work for her.

ActressRo_Jeff_58427144_Max

Simply stunning and elegant!!!!!!! Go Rose!!ActressJa_Mathe_58427203_Ma

Simply stunning, this Versace dress really brings out a great feminine shape!!!!!!!



Style In.....Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, MEXICO by Eva van Heck

We have asked people from all around the world to share with us their Style tips of the place they call home. If you would like to contribute to Style In.... just click here to contact us.

What Place are you writing about?
Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, MEXICOEva van Heck

A Little About You
My name is Eva van Heck, of Dutch nationality but living 7 years in Playa del Carmen.... Playa del Carmen is located on the Caribbean Sea and one of the fastest growing cities in the world, it changed enormously since I arrived here 7 years ago, but still has its typical mexican ambience and relaxed atmosphere. Beachlife is the best way to describe the ambience!!

I am the co-owner of a small dive business 'Pink Panther Divers' (www.pinkpantherdivers.com) and work also as a freelance tourguide, Pink Panther Divers among others in a tour 'snorkeling with whalesharks'. Used to work in the hotel business but seeing the beautifull Caribbean Sea just for about an hour a day during my lunch break, I decided 3 years ago for a complete change and started working as a dive and tourguide and still enjoying it fully! In my free time I like to play beach volleyball, swimming, walking on the beach, watching people on the famous 5a avenida in Playa del Carmen and touring around Mexico to discover new places and traditions....


Your Favorite Place to Shop?
The most important outfit in Playa is a bathing suit and 'Zingara' has a huge collection and several shops in Playa del Carmen. They also have pareos, hats and flipflops to complete your beach outfit....

Sunglasses can't be missed either and you can find all known brands at 'Sunglass Island', they also have several shops along the 5th avenue...

Then my favourite footwear here are flipflops, I have a nice collection of all colours and types (for work, to go to the beach, to go for a walk on the 5th avenue). My latest favourites are the ones designed by Giselle Bundchen from Ipanema. A nice store to find all kind of Havaianas and Ipanema flipflops is called 'It's all about feet'....

For more dressed up clothes it is difficult to find

a nice place in Playa, 'Bershka' and 'Pull and Bear' are the best choice, any other shop has all the typical touristy shirts with Playa del Carmen written on them.... In Cancun (about 60km from Playa) you can find nicer shops with good brands, the one I prefer is 'Zara', because they have the European sizes and trousers have the right length! (is hard to find here because most Mexicans are not that tall)..

Any Local designers you have found?
No local designers...... although there are some typical shops where they sell clothes of a fabric called 'manta' and they have nice designs for the type of beachlife in Playa.

A Little Joke to make you Laugh

This Joke was sent to me by Penny Martin, my hair dresser who is brilliant. After last weeks Hair Workshop hosted in the Style Angel Studio I was even more in awe of her experience and knowledge

Check out her website on www.penelopespittstop.com.au she is brilliant for hair colour and has the old fashion sound knowledge what to do with hair that has been coloured for years. She is also an in- demand wedding hair specialist and here is a example of her work when I was a "Step Mother of the Groom" at my Husband's Son wedding. Also in the photo is my daughter Yasmine who was the perfect flower girl that day.

Here is the Joke

This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade. So remember this story the next time someone who knows nothing and cares less tries to make your life miserable..

A woman was at her hairdresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to  Rome with her husband..  She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:  

       " Rome ?    Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty.. You're crazy to go to  Rome .    So, how are you getting there?"  

       "We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"  

       "Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser."    That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late.    So, where are you staying in  Rome ?"

       "We'll be at this exclusive little place over on  Rome  's  Tiber   River called Teste."  

       "Don't go any further. I know that place.  Everybody thinks its gonna be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump."

       "We're going to go to see the  Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope.."

       "That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. You and a million other people trying to see him.  He'll look the size of an ant.     Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours.    You're going to need it."  

       A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to  Rome  .  

       "It was wonderful," explained the woman, "not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot.  

       And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"

       "Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."  

       "Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me.  

       Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."  

       "Oh, really!  What'd he say ?"   

       He said: "Who f@#$d up your hair?
