Beauty discussion: Are eyebrow rings a thing? | feature beauty trends 2 beauty 2  pictures

Brows have gone next level, and I'm not talking in an outgrow-your-arches-and-achieve-world-peace kind of way. First it was the one earring trend, and then braid and nail piercings decided to join the party and now Rodarte has made rows of eyebrow rings the new 'thang' for the season. Gulp. The look pays homage to the '90s eyebrow ring trend, multiplied by 1000 (or in this case, a steady row of about seven adornments on each arch) and I'm not sure if I love it or hate it.

It seems if ever there was a time to get weird with beauty, it's now! That being said, I can totally understand why someone would have an aversion to this kind of grunge-inspired look. I mean ... what next! Seriously, what?!

What do you think, beauties? Is this trend totally awkward or is it something bold and brave that you'd like to try?

Eat this: Fish poached in olive oil recipe from Petite Kitchen

I'm only just starting to dip my toes into the world of eating fish and haven't yet mastered the art of cooking it myself without getting that "fishy" taste. I know that sounds weird (although I'm sure everyone out there who doesn't eat fish knows exactly what I'm talking about!), but there is a massive difference between delicious, subtly flavoured seafood and the kind that tastes like a fishmonger smells after a long day. The worst thing is that if you get a bad recipe it can take you a while to work your way back up to trying it again.

WANT MORE? If you liked this fish poached in olive oil recipe, then check out more from Petite Kitchen here.

This fish poached in olive oil recipe from Petite Kitchen is the perfect starter recipe for us seafood rookies. Not only is the method fairly idiot proof (the olive oil bath actually stops the fish from drying out around the edges), but the flavours are so simple but effective that it can help us really appreciate the flavour of fresh fish — without the, er, fishy taste.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 4 large fish fillets
  • 1 bulb of garlic, each clove smashed
  • 1 lemon, finely sliced
  • a handful of basil, or herbs of your choice
  • olive oil for poaching, not your best bottle but still something nice.
  • sea salt
  • pepper

The hot weather is kicking in early this year — especially in Melbourne (I can't believe I'm typing this). Despite the sunny skies I had to wear long sleeves due to the office getting chilly but decided to opt for this little beetlejuice/monochrome/stripes on stripes look for Summer lovin' Melb style.

Hey short stuff: 3 essential closet items for short women

I have always considered myself to be quite short (I am descended from jockeys, after all!) but after discovering our petite model Sandy (who is only 4'10'') over at my other site Sizeable, I realised that while I might be on the shorter end of the height spectrum I am not outrageously small. Even though I might tower over Sandy, I've still had to figure out a few tips for making myself appear taller without having to wear stacked heels every day (because heels make me tired and I'm much more of a Converse girl anyway!) and I'm here to share those tips with you. If you've got a tailor on speed dial to take up every pair of pants you've ever bought, then you should make sure your wardrobe is packed with the following items so you don't disappear entirely in your outfit.

Hey short stuff: 3 essential closet items for short women | feature fashion daily curvy  pictures

Cropped jeans are your new best friend

If the most painful part of the jean-buying process for you is the fact that you have to roll all your pants up 63 times before you can see your feet, then you need to find yourself a go-to brand who make cropped jeans. These pants are usually created as "ankle grazers" but depending on your height could work out to be your perfect length! I personally love Ziggy Sticks and Bones skinny jeans because their cropped length is the perfect size for my legs! If you're super short then you might even be able to get away with pedal-pushers as skinny jeans as well!

High-waisted styles will give you legs for days

We all know that tucking your top into a high-waisted skirt will help give you more of an hourglass figure, but if you're short it will also help to make you appear taller. Find high-waisted pants, shorts or skirts and tuck your top in to make your legs look extra long. This trick works even better if you wear a block colour on the bottom (especially darker shades) and a contrasting colour or print up top.

Vertical stripes will elongate your whole look

It is generally advised that petite women stick to a monochrome colour palette and avoid large or busy patterns (which I personally think is a fairly boring way to live your life!), but if there's one pattern that will make you look taller without swamping your frame then it is vertical stripes. If you're wearing something with vertical stripes it creates an optical illusion and helps draw the eye up, which in turn makes you appear taller and longer. Vertical stripes look great as pants (Beetlejuice style!), shirts or jackets, but we're especially loving vertical stripe shift dresses for a super easy Summer look.

Robo runner: 5 tech accessories for runners

In my imagination the only thing keeping me from being a runner is the fact that I lack the proper shoes. In reality I know that I hate running and that no amount of good music or Nike runners will make me jog with any consistency. However, for many other people running is their favourite form of exercise and is the adrenalin injection they need in their day.

Pout perfection: The 20 best lip balms of all time | lip service galleries feature beauty 2  pictures

Lip balm, a classic crowd-pleaser, an age-old beauty soul mate. There's so many reasons why many a lass will remain forever faithful to these trusty tubes of goodness, namely because they make the pout feel soft and sumptuous, can be applied on-the-go, are small enough to stow away in the handbag, and can smell pretty damn delicious (viva la Bubblegum Lip Smackers!).

If you're a die-hard lip balm fan or just a sucker for cool packaging, then these pout moisturisers will give new meaning to the word roofa-licious (Never Been Kissed movie reference, just FYI).

Exercise test dummy: Morning Gloryville Melbourne | lifestyle health and happines feature  pictures

With so many different exercise options out there these days, hating the gym is no longer a good enough reason to not get moving. So to inspire you to try new things, our chronically unfit lifestyle editor is lacing up her runners and trying out every type of exercise we can find in Melbourne — from Yoga to Boot Camps and every crazy thing in between.

Got a class you want us to try for you? Hit up the comments and we'll give it a go. Think of me as your exercise guinea pig.

Morning Gloryville Melbourne, 1000 £ Bend

Out of all the exercise classes and trends I've tried over the past few months, this one is definitely a bit different. For one thing, it's not a regular class by any stretch of the imagination — and it definitely doesn't even have regular classes. Morning Gloryville is a monthly event designed to get you moving in the morning with a combination of dancing, yoga, massage, coffee and juices.

It's an early morning dance party that encourages people to get dressed up in fun, colourful costumes and dance their little hearts out before heading off to work. For somebody who isn't a morning person (and if I'm being honest, I'm a bit of a nervous dancer and I don't tend to get onto the dance floor until I've had a couple of drinks) it was still a fun way to get the morning started.

The event runs from 6.30 am until 9.30 am but you can come and leave at any time (I personally don't think I'd have the energy for the full three hours but I saw a couple of people who looked like they were never going to stop dancing) so you can easily make it fit in with your morning routine. I'd definitely recommend getting a group of your friends together because the people in five person circles had enough back up to be able to cut loose without feeling self conscious (or is that just me?).

This wasn't a painful doof doof rave, but a super fun dance party that just so happens to start around the time most raves are wrapping up. If you need a gentler wake up call, then you can head upstairs for the yoga classes or get yourself a lovely massage to get those knots out so you can shoulder roll all morning long.

I'll definitely be heading back with a gaggle of friends next month when the next event is on since it felt like a nice little coffee detour on the way to work. Dancing with a coffee in your hand is a weird experience but with a protein ball and green juice in my hand I was ready to take on the day!

Morning Gloryville is currently running events in Melbourne and Sydney (as well as a bunch of random cities all over the world!) and your morning of fun is totally worth the ticket price. Head here for information on all their events.

Felt & Florals: With a daring thigh high boot in the mix it's important to tone down the outfit with dull and muted colours and prints (unless you're ADR ... in which case go nuts).

7 clutch sized must haves for Spring Racing | beauty tips beauty 2 beauty 2 sponsored  pictures

POST SPONSORED BY COMPEED®

A giant handbag might be your go-to for the nine-to-five. But at the races, it’s all about being “ladylike”. And ladies simple do not schlep around gigantic carry-alls, that is what their butlers are for (or so I have been told).

And if you, like me, sadly lack any sort of personal minion to do your schlepping for you, then might I suggest just downsizing your essentials for the day just a tad, so they fit into a more lady-like clutch or shoulder bag?

Really all you need for a day trackside is, well, all of these multi-tasking beauties!

1 – Tinted moisturiser with SPF.

Talk about your multitasking product! You can touch up your base, give your skin a moisture hit, and double up on your sun protection with a single tube!

2 – Concealer stick

To hide any less-than-lady-like imperfections (we all have them).

3 – Moisture boosting lip lacquer or gloss

Again, why carry a lip balm AND a lipstick, when there are so many fab (and highly pigmented) lip lacquers on the market these days that do the job of both.

4 – A hair elastic or two

Just in case your ‘do turns into a don’t during the day! Maybe chuck in some bobby pins as well.

5 – Kohl eyeliner

The perfect way to take your look from day too night, although perhaps steer away from attempting anything too bold after your third glass of champagne.

6 – A nude shimmer shadow

This is perfect for reviving the colour on your lids, and also to double as a highlighter to give your skin an extra pop towards the end of a long day.

7 – Blister patches

Don’t forget to include you COMPEED® Blister Patches. Because “comfy” shoes never go with your dress, and you know you are going to need them!

If you haven’t tried COMPEED® before, visit COMPEED.COM.AU to get a free COMPEED® blister patch sample (while supplies last)!

It's here, it's finally here! I feel like sliding down a banister and diving into a sea of neoprene, nylon and elastane — minus the 'remove before wearing stickers', thanks. I won't lie, I do get pumped up about swimwear every year (the side of cocktails and a tan is always a bonus), but this year the bathers have blown me away.

Lunch club: 3 eggs recipes to make for lunch

When you're looking for core ingredients to have on hand for a fairly healthy and filling lunch, then you really can't go past eggs. The trusty breakfast protein is so easy to forget after breakfast — unless you're baking or are looking for a binding agent — but not only are they delicious but they will stop you feeling hungry half an hour after lunch. You can throw your eggs into a salad or make muffins, but eggs are so versatile that you can just fry them up and throw them on top of whatever else you're having to add an extra punch of flavour and protein.

Spinach & Cheese Egg Muffins from Simply Stacie

If you're one of those amazingly organised people who like to have emergency lunch options ready ahead of time, then these spinach and cheese egg muffins are exactly what you're looking for. These can easily be frozen so that you just need to reheat them in a hurry and they still give you that dose of healthy greens and proteins that you need in a good lunch.

I love a good toasted sandwich (if you hadn't cottoned on to that from our month of toasties!) and these tasty additions will make sure your toasted sandwich is healthy and filling as well as being delicious.

Spring Racing season made simple (and stylish!)

SPONSORED POST

It’s not hard to talk the girls of this office into buying a fancy new dress and spending the day acting like a lady (well, most of the day anyway), but Spring Racing season is an open invitation for us ladies to really go all out in the wardrobe department, let our hair down and start to enjoy the sunny season.

Whether you're a relative newbie to the season or you have an impressive collection of hats from attending every trackside event from Derby Day to the Melbourne Cup, there’s a lot more to think about when it comes to planning your day out at the races than simply matching your fascinator to your dress. But don't worry, dear readers, because we're here to help you plan your day perfectly!

  1. Always wear sunscreen

You know what's not a good look? Sunburn. Not only will you seriously regret the crazy straps on your dress, which lead to ridiculous tan lines, but surely we don’t have to tell you all by now how bad sun damage is for your skin. You will be standing in the sun all day long so make sure you not only apply in the morning but take it with you and reapply during the day. Your skin will thank you!

  1. Take care of your feet

We all promise that we're not going to be one of those girls at the end of the day walking through the city barefoot with your shoes in your hand, but sometimes you don't realise just how painful your shoes are going to be until it's too late. To avoid at least some of that embarrassment, you will never regret purchasing a pair of fold-up flats — they can usually fit in the smallest of purses and if you have enough room for an additional canvas bag for your heels, then nobody has to know you took them off at all!

  1. Prepare for the weather

While we're on the subject of preparing for the worst, you need to take into account the fact that Melbourne has wildly unpredictable weather, so bring a light cardigan or wrap for when the weather turns sour — because we all know it eventually will!

  1. Pack your own esky

One of the main reasons why so many of us get a little bit disgraced at the races is a lack of food because we so don’t want to waste the day standing in line. Pack a little esky with some sandwiches and snacks for the day, plus a few bottles of water, and you'll still be a lady when the last race is over.

  1. Join Sportsbet.com.au

Since we've already established that waiting in line is not how you want to be spending your day, there's really no reason to waste half your time there just to have a flutter. Since you're no doubt going to have your smart phone in your hand all day anyway (I mean how else are you going to get all those Instagram snaps up?) it just makes sense to sign up with Sportsbet (you can sign up here) so you can have all the races at your fingertips.

 

WIN WITH SPORTSBET

Since all our interstate friends don't get a chance to actually attend the Spring Racing Carnival we want you to share in the excitement us Melbournians feel by joining Sportsbet via Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily.  Every qualified customer who places a $5 flutter using our link will receive a Spring-themed Violet Box valued at over $90.

Please note: Violet Box offer is only available to Australian residents from QLD/TAS/NT/ACT

Beauty hype: Introducing Glossier by Emily Weiss | feature beauty trends 2 beauty news beauty 2  pictures

With its brand motto 'skin first, makeup second, smile always' you're pretty much sold before you even begin to delve into the products themselves. Ladies, introducing Glossier: the brainchild of beauty guru Emily Weiss from one of my favourite blogs, Into The Gloss.

I have looked up to this lass for eons, and not just because she had a quick stint in what used to be my favourite reality TV show, The Hills (miss you Spencer ... naht), but because her website bashes out real, raw beauty advice and fantastic imagery that caters to the primping masses and features some of the best prods in the world. Her talented team has developed a sixth sense for what's relevant and what works when it comes to beauty, and the Glossier brand could not be more of a reflection of this.

The newly released range represents fun and freedom, and is the result of years of recommendations from the coolest girls on the planet. With a soothing face mist, priming moisturiser, do-it-all balm aptly named Balm Dot Com (hehe) and a perfecting skin tint, it's safe to say that girls worldwide are going to become ridiculously smitten over this stuff.

Unfortunately, there's no international shipping as yet, but when that day rolls around, you can have my credit card, Emily — take it!

While rumours circulate that Ariana Grande is a bit of a diva, we've been too preoccupied with her enviable tresses to really give a fug. The pint-sized starlet makes up for what she lacks in height in hair (and attitude), and one style she's perpetually seen sporting is the preppy-chic one half-up high ponytail. Adorable, right?

Bargain buys: 10 pieces under $50 to get you into the Spring of things | hot 10 galleries feature fashion daily  pictures

I'm all for a new outfit, in fact the high I get from shopping is not unlike the high I get from eating half a baked cheesecake or seeing a Friends marathon lined up on Foxtel. Yep, my middle name is new outfit. But I can't help but think not every situation requires new attire (oh yeah ... I said it). There's nothing quite as soul crushing as your outfit game being on point and not getting a photo (ouch — I shaved for this!).

Not to mention that a bargain dress somehow looks fresh off the runway in photos! What kind of sorcery is this? OK, maybe I'm a touch bitter thanks to nights out in my Sunday best, when that moolah could be used to buy the essentials ... milkshakes, new shoes, a nutri-bullet (only joking). All I know is the sun's out and it's time to get your save on. Don't be like me, kids; spend wisely on everything (and ask for a damn photo when you're out).
