It is not surprising to me at all why Rihanna is famous.
If you still listen to the radio, and let’s be honest a lot of people don’t anymore, you may be surprised to know that one of the most popularly played songs is by Rihanna. Why the surprise? This comes from the fact that this particular song, “Love on the Brain”, does not have the usual energetic tone and pulsing beat she is more widely recognized for.
In fact, “Love on the Brain” is almost ballad-like, with the soulful singing and almost melancholic notes. No, this is not your usual Rihanna fare. Perhaps this is why it is so popular.
10 years after being first discovered and Rihanna is still as popular as ever. But why? Why Rihanna is famous, especially considering the variety of musical talent that enters the market each year? There doesn’t seem to be a complicated equation for success.
As seen on Elite Celebs Mag, her success and fame comes from the fact that she is relatable to her fans in two distinct ways: professionally and personally.
Rihanna’s Professional Fame
Rihanna’s professional fame can be partly attributed to the smart business decisions of those around her. Her first single, “Pon de Replay” was a success for a variety of reasons, one being the extremely catchy and popular tune in the song. (more…)
Side swept bangs are among the most popular hair styling methods among women who want to make a subtle – yet clear – statement as to how they feel about themselves. This is because side swept bangs, while definitely not too conspicuous, tend to send a subtle message that the wearer is both ‘sexy’ and comfortable with herself: especially when she happens to be talking with someone, and then seemingly ‘subconsciously’ flips a part of the side swept bangs.
One of the most remarkable things with side-swept bang, which sets them apart from most other hair styling methods, is that they can work with almost any type of hair. Whether your hair is the soft variety or the tougher variety common with people, you can be sure that side swept bangs will work just as well with you.
Another remarkable thing about side swept bangs is that they work with hair of all lengths expect, of course, very short hair which can’t be ‘swept’. It is nonetheless people with medium sized hair who tend to find the side-swept bang more appealing, but even if your hair is very long, you can work the front part of it into the side swept bangs.

Off Grid Wear is a very new organic clothing company with a pretty admirable mission: To save lives. After surfing around their website I was intrigued, I wanted to know more about what made them different from other organic companies and how I could help spread their message. I sent over a couple of questions and I wanted to share them here with you.
What is Off Grid Wear and how did it come about?
Michael Newsom founded Off Grid Wear in 2013 with the express purpose of creating a product that preserves the planet while practicing Fair Trade policies. “We believe there is a difference between ‘Cruel cotton’ and ‘Cool cotton’,” says Newsom. Off Grid Wear is an organic clothing company that sells “clothing with conscience.” Our products are made with 100% organic cotton and low-impact dyes, which reduces the amount of harmful toxins introduced into both your body and the environment.

Hello my little banana muffins! I am so happy to bring this post to you due to the fact that I’ve been able to try out so many new things this month and it’s been really fun.
Of course, once gain, January completely sped by and I started school last week too, which means I’ll be living the Year 12 life, joy. Nevertheless, its been really fun playing around with makeup looks and all of that good stuff.
I think that 850 in round raspberry is the most gorgeous colour for the winter time. I absolutely love the consistency and finish of these so if you want to check out my review on them click HERE.
Pantene || Intensive Treatment Program – 3 Minute Miracle
I’m sure nearly everyone has seen this in stores. Most of you know that my hair is currently in a balayage/ombre style and I have blonde ends to my hair. Therefore, it’s been so dry and dead lately. I got sent this a while ago and whenever I use this on my hair, it feels amazing and keeps it nice and shiny. One of the reasons that I’m such a big fan of this is because it’s so affordable. I’ve tried many hair treatments from both the higher end and lower end of the price range and this has been one of my favourites. I believe you can purchase this from pretty much anywhere such as Coles, Safeway and Priceline. This retails for only AU$3 for each one, which is pretty amazing considering you get about 3 uses out of this one little bottle.
Olay || Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser
I was reading a magazine the other day and it had a little article on skincare DO’s and DON’Ts and I remember one of them saying to double cleanse. Meaning to cleanse your face at night to get all the extra oils and makeup off that your makeup remover couldn’t get. Then to cleanse again to strip off any bacteria or germs that are leftover.
I actually received this in the mail from Olay which was really great but I am not getting paid to say good things about it, I’m being completely honest and saying that this has improved my skin so much. For those of you who don’t know, I have acne prone, combination & sensitive skin. It really isn’t as bad as it used to be but I think that I’m still classified as that. However, after sticking to the same skincare routine for ages, I’ve been seeing so much improvement. This is of course in combination with what I eat and the amount of sleep that I get the night before.
The cleanser also exfoliates lightly because it has micro beads in it which is something that I personally really like due to the fact that my combination skin does get quite dry sometimes so it’s nice to get all that dead skin off.
There’s also a cream and serum that comes in the same line. I have just started using the serum so I will probably be doing a review on the whole skincare system. But this cleanser has been so helpful in clearing my skin. It’s currently available at Priceline for 20% off which is awesome.
Rimmel || Lasting Finish Primer
For those of you who don’t know, I have been using the Hourglass finished veil primer for the longest time, I have been loving it and it has been my holy grail. However, I actually ran out of it a while ago and never got around to purchasing it again due to the fact that it is quite expensive and I honestly haven’t been able to bring myself to spend that much since I’m not working anymore.
So I opted to try out the other primers that I had lying around in my collection and nothing really worked for me. But I wore this primer for the first time a few weeks ago when I went out with a friend and my makeup stayed on from morning tonight, I was honestly really surprised at the results due to the fact that I don’t use drugstore products on my face due to the fact that my skin is really quite sensitive and a lot of them break me out. This however did not and do I dare to say that it even matches my hourglass primer? Maybe. But I’ve been using this for the past three weeks or so and can’t get enough of this. It really makes me want to try out the Lasting Finish foundation but one step at a time!
Urban Decay || NAKED Flushed Palette
This has probably been one of the most useful products I have ever owned. I am all for “all in one” type of products and the fact that this is by Urban Decay really excited me.
I was gifted this by my brother’s girlfriend for my birthday last year, she went on a month long trip with my brother and bought me a bunch of goodies from Sephora and a few other places which made me really really really happy. (more…)
Hello everybody! Today I will be sharing with you another New Found Favourite and once again it’s a drugstore product so I know you’ll all be happy about that. These are the Covergirl XL nail gels. When I first received this, my attention was immediately focused on how gorgeous the dark reddish plum shade was [ 850, rotund raspberry ] which is definitely my favourite out of the three. Trying these babies definitely broke my habit of having white nails 24/7.
Most of you probably don’t know but I’ve been obsessed with painting my nails white for the past 6 months and I still am but it was so fun to try out some new colours and experiment with them. I ended up actually really loving these and have become a tad obsessed with how amazing they are. Just to let you know, these were sent to me along with a few other products but I’m not getting paid to say good things about these! I genuinely love these.
As most of you know, my holy grail mascara is by Covergirl’s Lash Blast Volume Waterproof Mascara but other than that, I never really had much stuff from Covergirl. However, this really makes me want to try more of their range! (more…)
