Outfit inspiration (Halloween edition) - The Little Mermaid

Hello everyone!

Today's post is another Halloween "outfit inspiration".  Want to dress up as Ariel from The Little Mermaid this Halloween? - Easy!  


Just pick up a green maxi skirt and  pair it with a cute purple bandeau or a purple tank top, if you prefer.  Include some cute starfish or seashell accessories.  When it comes to make-up; a coral lipstick and sparkly nail polish will complement the outfit.  Oh, and don't forget to put on false lashes for that cartoonish effect!  You can also add a red wig if you feel your hair isn't mermaid-like enough.

Outfit inspiration (Halloween edition) - Wednesday Addams

Hello everyone!

I'm a rabid fan of everything horror, supernatural and paranormal so understandably I love Halloween.  While every little girl wanted to be a princess, I wanted to be a witch! 

The Addams Family (1964-1966) was one of my favourite TV shows growing up.  In case you're wondering, I was born in 1985; as a child I watched re-runs on Italian television.  However, I'm not a fan of the movies.  


Wednesday was one of my favourite characters on the show, she was a pale, dark-haired, grim-looking little girl who was fascinated with death and the macabre.  

Today's "outfit inspiration" is a Wednesday Addams Halloween costume.  This is a classic and very simple costume.

If you want to dress up as Wednesday, make sure to find a black dress with a white collar.  I like the flat boots because little Wednesday wore flat boots in the TV series.  Pigtail braids and black tights complete the outfit!  You can also wear black nail polish if you want to.

Outfit inspiration - Spirit Day 2014

Hello everyone!
I've put together two purple outfit ideas for Spirit Day; a casual and a formal outfit. 

Casual outfit recommendation:

On this day people wear the colour purple to show support for LGBT youth who are victims of bullying Purple symbolises 'spirit' on the rainbow flag.

Formal outfit recommendation:


Getting involved is easy!  Turn your social media pics purple here, and wear purple on October 16th and help create a world in which LGBT youth are accepted for who they are.

Which outfit do you prefer?  Are you going to wear purple on Thursday?  Answer in the comment section below!

Got acne? There's an app for that!

Hello everyone!


It seems these days there's an app for nearly everything, including acne!  In fact, a new app is claiming it can stop acne.  It’s called Spruce, and it offers customers a diagnosis with a board-certified US dermatologist directly from their phone.  

All you have to do is, download the app, take a few selfies, answer a few questions and hit send.  Within 24 hours, you’ll hear from a dermatologist.  A visit is only $40 and includes a personalised treatment plan with prescriptions sent to your pharmacy.  At this time, Spruce is only available in California, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania.


To learn more about Spruce, watch the video below. 


  • Free to download the application, sign up, and access Spruce guides on skin care.
  • Visits are less expensive than the $100+ average cost of an in-person dermatologist appointment.
  • 100% refundable if you don’t have a great experience.
  • Doctors on Spruce are from top US medical schools and practice according to the highest clinical standards.
  • Spruce is HIPAA compliant - all information is protected with advanced security measures.
Would you try the Spruce app?  Let me know in the comments below.
