We all wonder what it’s like to be a celebrity, being followed, photographed, asked for autographs and getting freebies… Some of us wish for this kind of fame! But for those of you, who don’t think they will ever experience this feeling, you can now create it for yourself!

It’s called Paparazzi – Celeb 4 A Day, a Sydney based company that makes all your celebrity and attention seeking dreams come true.

Now active in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, I had the chance to use the Celeb 4 A Day experience and find out what it was really like to be followed and photographed by the paparazzi.

I have taken my iPhone with me and inconspicuously filmed the whole experience from my side of the camera. Check out how crazy it is, and how the paparazzi won’t let you get away, asking questions and doing what they can to get the perfect shot of you!

Celebrities Lining Up For Jet Peel At Paramedical Skin Clinic

February 10th, 2011

If you know me well, you’ll know I love Melbourne. If you know me even better, you’ll know I love to look after my face and my skin – going to some pretty radical lengths to maintain my youthful appearance.

An amazing opportunity has come up for me to fly to Melbourne and try a brand new and amazing treatment which celebrities are lining up for. They are turning away from the knife, or painful injections and opting for non-surgical, less invasive procedures, to fight the signs of aging and maintain their youthful glow.

Celebrity Skin Guru, Ilesha Haywood of Paramedical Skin Clinic, whose clientele includes Dannii Minogue, Livinia Nixon, Sonia Kruger, Suzie Wilks, and Kimberley Davies, says that a new range of revolutionary skin treatments are helping celebrities maintain their enviable looks. So what the hell – I’m sold!

“Many celebrities today are turning their backs on botox, collagen, and invasive facelifts because they realize that they no longer need to subject themselves to these types of treatments. There are a host of new treatments that are non-invasive and leave clients literally looking years younger,” says Ilesha Haywood.

Yes I’m sold – but what is it? It’s one of Paramedical Skin Clinic’s new treatments, the Jet Peel. It’s favoured by celebrities for its natural, virtually painless skin treatment procedure that dramatically improves the appearance and texture of the skin.

The great news is that the same treatments celebrities use to maintain their skin are available to us – everyday men and women.

“Anyone can have the skin of a celebrity. Even if you have acne, pigmentation, or fine lines, this new era of skin treatments can turn back the clock, radically change the skin’s appearance, and leave anyone with great skin” Ilesha went on to say when we spoke over the phone.

It works by removing layers of dead skin cells, hydrating the skin with a moisturizing jet stream, and infuses oxygen into the deep dermis to recharge cells and help them to produce new collagen. It makes use of pressurized oxygen to create an exfoliative effect on the skin, leading to skin resurfacing. Sounds pretty exciting to me – and doesn’t involve injections!

“Following a course of Jet Peel treatments, it’s not unusual for our clients to say that they feel as if their skin looks 5-10 years younger!” says Ilesha.

Where Would I Rather Be? The Cullen Hotel – Prahran – Melbourne

November 12th, 2010

Where would I rather be?

The Cullen Hotel in Melbourne of course.

Oh hang on… I am at The Cullen Hotel in Prahran, Melbourne right now enjoying the complete fabulousness of this place!

I once would only stay at a 5 star hotel right in the heart of Melbourne every time I’d visit, till I finally thought I’d try something a little different outside of the city, in the heart of the trendy, slightly bohemian yet up-market Prahran.

I’d drive past The Cullen as it was being built only a couple of years ago, wondering what the monstrosity across the road from the Prahran markets would be. What was being built was an artistic, luxurious, warm, welcoming and eccentrically designed hotel which was featured in the 2010 Condé Nast Traveller US Hot List.

The entire hotel is inspired by the artwork of Adam Cullen. Bright, colourful and peculiar is what you could describe the artwork and the imagination of this talented man. Adam Cullen combines irreverent humour with an astute sensitivity to society.

From the moment I walk through the glass doors, past the two life sized Adam Cullen mosaic cows in the foyer, I realise I am somewhere a little different. A little quirky. A little fearless. Perfectly me.

There is an immediate presence of homely calm. The casual, but very professional staff are just so welcoming. They are young, vibrant, experienced and will do anything to make your stay pleasurable. Each time I have been, I couldn’t have asked for a bunch of nicer people to look after me – it’s really helped make a home away from home for me, especially as I travel so much.

Check-in is easy and quick which is important to me as I normally arrive and just want to get in, drop my bags, have a shower and relax.

The foyer, the void from the top and all the corridors on each floor are covered in fabulous wallpapers and the original artworks of Adam Cullen. The artworks continue on through to the luxury guest suites.

When you open the door to your room, you automatically smile. It’s a bright, happy and pleasant space. It’s clever, sophisticated and designed in the most amazing way to take advantage of space and light and make you feel completely fabulous.

The bathroom is a standout feature for me. Obscured decals with Adam Cullen’s famous Ned Kelly  cover the giant glass walls to the bathroom, creating a sense of discreet and legalised voyeurism with just vague silhouettes showing through. The stunning glossy black mirrored floor tiles, use of mirrors and the large open shower (or bath/spa depending on the room you get) make your time spent in the bathroom pleasurable. Excellent Art Series products are plentiful for your skin, hair, etc.

Luxurious spotless, black carpet lines the floor, crisp white walls and plenty of colourful Adam Cullen paintings line the walls, along with a wall mounted LCD with Foxtel and floor to ceiling mirrors. A fully served kitchenette and dining table complete with Kartell chairs, side tables and lamps. A small library in each room provides hours of colourful reading with books on the art of Adam Cullen, architecture and design.

An iPod docking station is also in every room which is great for me, as I need music everywhere I go, and also have an iPhone and can charge and listen to my favourite songs up loud!

The hotel has everything you need – valet parking, hair salon, gymnasium, Nintendo Wii hire, internet and downstairs there is the famous HuTong Dumpling Bar which is a hot spot for Melbourne locals to dine. If you haven’t already hired a car, hire one of The Cullen’s Smart Cars! Or if you feeling like keeping fit and getting some fresh air, hire a Swedish Kronan bicycle.

The beds are super sumptuous and provide an amazing sleep, while being cocooned in the luxurious Art Series Signature linen.

I love everything about this hotel. The service is impeccable. The class in second to none. The design is divine. The price is right and the location is perfect. If there was somewhere you were going to stay in Melbourne, this would have to be it.

This is where I’d rather be… And I am.

Mr. McQueen In Prahran – Helen Manuell’s Cute New Beauty!

October 21st, 2010

Lately I’ve been spending alot of time in Melbourne.

I love Melbourne… It’s friendly people, great food, bars, shopping, fashion, homewares, pretty much everything except it’s weather!

That aside, I’ve found a new hidden gem at 465 High St, Prahran. Mr McQueen.

The cutest, quaintest and quirkiest, teeny weeny 1960′s housewife style cafe serving the freshest and yummiest of home made brekkies, brunch and lunch style foods with organic ingredients. Have an elegant pot of tea, or a coffee which people line up out the door for! I recommend the Jasmine Pearl tea. Delightful!

There are also fantastic 1960′s style lamingtons, honeycomb rocky road, pumpkin and feta muffins and a mix of delicious treats each day to eat in or take away. There’s a ‘Mr. McQueen Eggs’ menu, and there’s also a normal menu with meals to have throughout the day. My personal favourite is the leg ham, Emmental cheese and caramelised onion toastie. Deeeee-licious!

The effervescent owner Helen Manuell opened the cute cafe about 2 months ago, after changing the shop space from her bridal couture boutique Manuell & Moore. Helen who was a successful contestant on Project Runway has a keen eye for style, grace and elegance. She has a quirky charm about her, and you can see this charm dotted around her beautiful cafe.

Looking over the store at all times, is her gorgeous Lance. Who is Lance? He is the deer head placed on the back wall. He’s a beautiful majestic creature which brings a little added charisma to the quirky theme.

Located on the trendy end of High Street in Prahran, Helen welcomes you with open arms after opening the big red door to the cutest little café in Melbourne. Be sure to check it out!
