Botox Talk with Dr. Cara Duminy

Botox Talk with Dr. Cara Duminy

I’ve been getting Botox for the past 18 months and I’ve never once been shy to admit it. Why should I be? It’s a part of my beauty routine and I’ve only ever felt true, deep gratitude at the results. I inherited a deep frown line between my eyes from my mom and just after […]

The Last Minute Bali Body Plan

The Last Minute Bali Body Plan

With 25 days to go until I was supposed to board a plane to Bali, I realised that instead of feeling excited about the holiday, I was feeling anxious. Anxious because I haven’t been working out.

It’s long been a dream of mine to have my own podcast. I’ve been thinking about launching one for years. I listen to so many every day, and you know, I love pushing myself. But it was hard to decide whether I’d be able to commit to it, what my subject matter would be, and […]
