Oh! And there I am again…

The other day I was asked to write a debate column for Marie Claire, defending the amount of cash we chicas spend on our looks. Personally, I thought it was a super-easy sell ‘cos, really, preserving/amplifying your hotness is a total investment in your self-esteem. Still, I was pitted against a pretty scary/awesome counter-debater; Sam Wilson, my beloved ex-boss from back in the day when I used to beauty edit for Women24. (On top of this, she also just so happens to be a lawyer. Eek!) Still, I reckon we both make a pretty good argument and I liked how our pieces bounced off the other’s nicely, despite the fact that we hadn’t seen the others’.

Want to check it out? Snap up the November issue of the mag on the shelves right now.

No, no honey... I'm not ON the magazine... I'm INSIDE. That's Candice Swanepoel on the cover. But I could TOTALLY see how you'd get us muddled up...

The issue’s particular awesome ‘cos a) I’m in it (hair flick, hair flick) and b) it comes with an impressive amount of free shizzness! Think 1 x Estee Lauder foundation sample, 2 x perfume samples (Thierry Mugler’s Womanity, Versace Bright Crystal, both frags I’d actually wear) and a trio of Eucerin DermoPurifier samples. (The latter is for spot-prone skin and I quite like the night cream).

Love, love


P.S. In my piece I saw that I know how it feels to be on the other side of the fence as I was ‘an awkward teen’, but what I meant to say was TWEEN. As in an awkward headgear wearing 11 year old, NOT highschooler. For this, I blame my MS Word’s spell check. Drat…

  1. Weird I bought that issue but didnt get those samples, but did get a Garnier roll-on deodoarant which smells great. Maybe in diff regions they package diff freebies???

    1. I think so, hey. That’s why I often wait before buying a mag so I can scout it out in both Clicks as well as Woolies. Often, one store will be flogging it with a fat freebie, while another doesn’t have it. Weirdness…
