There are tons of gift ideas out there for this Mother’s Day, but my favourite gift is the one that keeps coming even after Mother’s Day is over…magazine subscriptions!  I’m a magazine junkie and I personally subscribe to a bunch (like a kid, I still get excited when I find my magazines sitting in the mail box after a long day at work).  One of my favourite past times is kicking my feet up, grabbing a glass of wine and cracking open this month’s freshly printed magazine.  Best of all, we live in a time where there are literally hundreds of different magazines covering every possible topic and category out there (whether food, style, fitness or new mum advice).  And CLEO Australia has one of the internet’s most diverse selections… check out some of my favourite below.

I love me my celebrity gossip and OK! Magazine always covers my favourite celebrities from around the world.   Featuring exclusive interviews and personal revelations from celebrities, OK! Magazine is most well-known for its coverage of celebrity weddings, like David and Victoria Beckham’s.

Looking for some super-chic unique Jewelry by an independent designer? Look no further than – check out what’s new from my personal fave India-based designer, Eina Aluwalia.

If you haven’t been there already, you NEED to go and check out the beautiful handmade jewelry on It’s all from amazing independent designers, each of them with their own profiles and collections on the site. In a sea of ‘handmade’ is a cut above the rest because it’s curated, which means a team of expert fashionistas get to decide what goes on the site based on quality, style, and the reputation of the designer themselves. Eina Ahluwalia is hailed as India’s first conceptual jewelry artist. Firmly believing in the importance of making a concerted move away from factory-designed products to those made by real artisans with real passions and stories, Eina now sells her collections through Boticca:

“The creative process begins with a lot of coffee and angst. I have to reach within myself and sift through a lot of thoughts and ideas to find the one strong story that needs to be shared.” – Eina Ahluwalia

Eina is one of more than 250 designers from 40+ countries all over the world now selling her pieces through Boticca, which is actually the only place on the net that you can feel that amazing sense of discovery you get when you find a rare, one-off trinket on your travels. Check out my favorite piece below!

Traditionally, a Kirpan is a small symbolic sword worn on the body by Sikhs – a warrior race that acted to protect oppressed communities from Mughal rule in India. Amazingly, this piece, which can be worn at several different lengths, is 100% handcrafted, featuring intricate fretwork on brass with 22-karat gold plating.

There are so many beautiful and very different pieces on the site, too. More than 6,000 items, in fact! Feast your peepers on these stunners, for example:

REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips Review

May 7, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I’ll be the first to admit that my day starts off with a pot of coffee and usually ends with a glass of wine (okay..maybe two glasses!).  Unfortunately, this daily ritual has taken a toll on my once pearly white smile. Which I’m particularly sensitive about because I have to take a lot of pictures for my fashion blog. Recently I was sent the REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips to test out.  I’ll also be the first to admit that I remember the “wilderness years” when at-home teeth whitening products first hit the market, they cost a fortune and you were terrified that your teeth were going to glow in the dark.  Well, times have certainly changed, and I couldn’t be happier with the Rembrandt results.

Within the first day there was a noticeable, natural looking difference; by the end of the two week treatment, I was giving the world my best imitation of a Julia Roberts thousand watt smile! The product is so easy to use and is comprised of simple strips that literally dissolve within minutes in your mouth. And it retails for only $22.99! Any product that erase years of soda drinking and happy hour toasts in less than two weeks get my vote of approval.

REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips dissolve on your teeth in minutes to easily remove tough stains caused by coffee and wine.  Get a whiter smile in 2 weeks.  Visit to learn more or purchase REMBRANDT® products. 


REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips & REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® toothpaste together:


REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® platform uses 3x Triple Action ActiShield™ technology to:

·       Remove: helps gently remove tough stains like coffee, red wine and tea

·       Repel: works like an invisible shield to help repel future stains

·       Restore: strengthens the enamel to help prevent daily acid wear

My Celebrity Style Inspiration: Jessica Alba

May 3, 2012 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

When it comes to fashion inspiration, I’ve always been enamored with celebrities that “wear their hearts on their sleeves” and embody a style that both accentuates and complements their mood and personality (like Rachel Zoe, Rachel Bilson and Drew Barrymore). But when it comes to my personal day to day style, my hat goes off to actress, entrepreneur and mother of two Jessica Alba.  As a working mom, I truly admire the ease and simplicity of her wardrobe choices like tees, skinny jeans, blazers and scarfs.  Alba always looks stylish, comfortable and sexy (without over doing it) and effortlessly mixes colors and patterns without sacrificing her free spirit.

For my spin on Alba’s style, I bought a chambray dress at Forever 21 and paired it with a crochet cardigan from Marshall’s, and a studded belt from T.j. Maxx (I always manage to sneek something studded into my outfits) and brown strappy heels from meet mark.

Like Alba, comfort and ease have to be incorporated into a lot of my outfits…which is why I love affordable stores like TJ Maxx and Forever 21 (yes even moms can shop there!).

Speaking of style and comfort, We think its tremendous popularity is proof that the 2012 Corolla offers the ideal blend of comfort, value and safety. In it, you’ll find a surprising number of high-end features, like available Display Audio system. It offers remarkable performance and fuel efficiency, plus an impressive list of standard safety features. Factor in its legendary reliability, and it’s even more apparent that Corolla is the smart choice.
