 Before I left to Melbourne I got to join in on the behind the scenes action down at Show Pony HQ. Watching the girls shoot through hundreds of outfits in one night made me realize two things: 
  1. How much my wardrobe is lacking of day dresses, swag hats and festival tops to prepare me for the upcoming months and.. 
  2. How walking around in Lady Gaga-esque heelless platforms is a talent in itself haha

 I had a great time with Jane and her Show Pony team, Ben from Ben Scott photography and gorgeous models Jessica Banzon, Alexandra Talifero and Olena Khaluma. Thanks for having me guys!

Veet EasyWax and Blog Giveaway!

Thursday, September 13, 2012

The wonderful guys from Veet are flying me out to Melbourne this weekend, they're also giving me the chance to run a "One Night Out" giveaway for you guys! Keep reading to find out more ;)

[I will be updating this blog post with Melbourne pictures as I go, in the mean time follow me on Instagram @annnieo]

Spring is here! So bring on the floral blazers, loose fitting chiffons and leg-baring skirts, shorts and skorts. I think my only two gripes with this season are: 1. The dreaded hayfever and 2. Keeping the legs under control (I blame it on post-winter leg syndrome).

Although hayfever is inevitable for me, I’m glad to say I’ve found a quick and easy solution to problem number 2. Let me introduce to you my new lifesaver – Veet’s EasyWax Electric Roll-On Kit.

When I’m working 9 to 5 every week day, by the time the weekend hits and the girls want to head out for a night on the town I’ll either have to microwave my own wax, find another wax spreader and cut out strips or head to the closest beauty bar. Which means I’ll either spend more money then I need to for salon finish legs or end up with a waxy mess all over the bathroom tiles.

Veet’s EasyWax is making my life easier by:

  1. Saving me from making a mess. There’s nothing worse than getting unwanted wax on your skin and your floor!
  2. Saving me so much time. Just like waxing made easy there’s only 3 steps you’ll need to follow.
  3. Saving me money. Why spend all that money at the salon when you can just buy an EasyWax kit which will last you for multiple uses (and it’s just in your local Supermarket too!).
  4. Saves me from buying different waxes for different wax areas. Usually the wax you use for your legs you wouldn’t be able to use for more sensitive areas such as your underarm. You can use the EasyWax for your legs, arms, underarms and even bikini!
  5. Providing me with all the tools I need in one kit: Wax kit, strips and after-wax wipes.
  6. So last weekend before a Saturday night hen’s night, I whipped out my EasyWax, waxed my legs and was ready to immerse myself in my wardrobe for the next few hours so I could figure out what to do.


What you’ll get in your kit:

  1. Veet EasyWax roller
  2. Wax refill
  3. Cable and base
  4. Wax strips
  5. After-wax wipes

How to use it:

  1. Insert the wax refill into the roller device
  2. Connect and plug the base with the roller and turn it on. A red light will turn on to indicate that the device is heating up. Wait 20 minutes.
  3. Roll on the wax in the direction of your hair growth (just like how you’d use a roll-on deodorant)
  4. Place the strip over the wax area. Rub then pull the strip back on itself against the direction of your hair growth.
  5. Remove any residue with the wax wipes.
  6. Place the lid on the wax until you use it again. Clean, easy and simple!

Bianca Gomez Backless Dress by Bianca Gomez (click here to buy it from Le Black Book), ANNIEPOPSHOP gold cuffs.

Another dress and nail tutorial combo today.

I want to thank Le Black Book for making sure that my Bianca Gomez dress was personally delivered in time for the White Party I attended last weekend. I picked the Bianca Gomez backless dress in white, this dress also comes in pink which you can buy directly from here.

Bianca Gomez is the creative director for her own web-based label which she launched last year at just 19 years old. She designs amazing dresses such as the Midnight dress (which I'm obsessed with) and I can't commend her enough on her work! Show your support by buying a Bianca Gomez dress the next time you need a hot number for a night out :)

And before I leave, here is another quick and easy nail tutorial!
