You may have glimpsed a post I wrote last night called "2009 T.U.T.A.N.K.H.A.M.U.N Beauty Awards" but on reviewing said post, I realised it was a little self serving and decided to re-edit.
I was flipping through the lastest Cosmopolitan last night when I stumbled upon the glossy spread heralding the start of the 2009 Australian Beauty Awards. This is an annual occurance where experts on beauty from prominent magazines plus industry experts get together and test, evaluate and judge the best beauty products in every possible category from Nail Polish to Anti-Aging cream. It takes two months to do this and if you visit the website (link's in the name) you can have your say about what your favourite beauty products are and you could win a host of cool (beauty) prizes.
Heres a sample of my answers to the 'vote' questionnaire:
Favourite make up colour blush/eye: Blush- Dior Desert Rose, Eye: Any MAC eyeshadow
Favourite Fragrance: Happy Heart by Clinique or Songes by Annick Goutal
Favourite hair styling product/treatment: Tigi Split End Leave-In Conditioner
I reckon you should all check out the website as its fun and easy to vote and the site itself is good for a procrastinating browse

Went down to the lake with fellow blogger Adrienne this afternoon to get some photos. I kind of had a Gypsyish/Alice In Wonderland theme in mind with focus on dresses with splashes of colour.
The photos were taken with an SLR so you might have/want to click to see the details.
White Dress: Habitat
Shawl worn as belt: Gift
Black Belt: Vintage
Dress worn as top: Habitat (same as above)
Skirt: 50s Vintage-From Fete clothing stall
Tea Set: T2
Pillow: David Jones

Its around this time (Year 7) that kids start to open up their eyes to the world around them and gain opinions and when I did, it just seemed like the greatest idea to publish all my opinions on my chest. I think this was about the time that Supre started to mass produce girly slogan t-shirts (they haven't stopped 5 years later, I checked today). These t-shirts read every inane message from: 'If you think I'm a bitch, you should meet my mother/sister/best friend' etc to 'Princess Drama Queen' and every eloquent witticism in-between.
My best friend had one saying "BLONDE" across the chest (well of course it was written in glitter, its Supre, do you really have to ask?) and together with me and my Stupid Factory t-shirt we thought we were smokin'.
The thing is guys, its 5 years later, and I see these t-shirts still around. And the worst isn't on girls. Its on guys. Come on boys, its pretty easy to dress tastefully if you're male. Granted, Im not, but at least your choice of fashion mistakes is devoid of ultra mini-skirts, Harts dresses and ruched leggings. In all seriousness though (is this blog ever that serious?) its pretty easy to pick out a wardrobe thats not heinous* if you're a guy**.
(*heinous= tasteless slogan t-shirts.)
(**Im talking over the age of 16 here)
Jays Jays is pretty much the main culprit. It's where discarded Threadless designs go to die (not really, I'm sure they have some Judd Apatow-movie loving w**ker in the back room giggling at his creations). These days, Jays Jays seems to specialize in cheap, crass slogan t-shirts that either make you look ignorant, sleazy, alcoholic or a combination of the three.
Here are some prime examples:
