Red Square have gone Digital

Hiya Poutlings <33

RED SQUARE

Red Square – famously part of the Edgars group has finally launched an online store where you can get some of your favourite beauty and perfume brands online! They have also stated that they will offer a “free” sampling programme, simply put that when you order online you can choose three sample items to try, at no additional cost. It sounds very Rubybox-esque but it sounds good to me.

Red Square have also taken into account that we, beauty bloggers as a whole are quite loud and proud about our purchases and that we want to share our product experience and knowledge with people on the web, be it via social media, blogging or review sites, and have catered for this on their website providing the opportunity for the consumers to post comments, make recommendations or even give advice about the products on offer in order to strive for consumers to make more informed choices….

The goodies you buy from Red Square can also be gift wrapped with a personalised message on the card…. this sounds like it could be an absolute save for last minute birthday or anniversary presents for the men out there 😉 Look out for perfume-presents, ladies!

Orders over R350 have free delivery, any order under that amount would be subject to an additional R45 on your purchase price. Payments can be made via credit card, or any Edgars or Jet account. HELLO 6 MONTHS INTEREST FREE CREDIT.

I’m really loving the fact that they have finally launched in the correct direction, local South African online stores will most definitely soar over the next few years but I am suprised that they did not think to do this previously…. The website on a whole, is a bit boring for a company with such an established brand however it is still early days and they may actually liven it up a bit.

It however amazing that we can now shop these amazing brands online without having to pay for parking. The brands on offer include (the links are to our previous articles on the brand/person): Antonio Banderas, Avril Lavigne, Azzaro, Beautique, Britney Spears, Burberry, Bvlgari, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chloe, Christina Aguilera, CK One Color, Clarins, Davidoff, Diesel, Dolce & Gabana, Dunhill, Elie Saab, Elizabeth Arden, Elizabeth Taylor, Escada, Estee Lauder, Ferrari, Filorga, Giorgio Armani, Gosh, Gucci, Hugo Boss, I Love…, Imedeen, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Choo, Joop!, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, L’Oreal Paris, Lacoste, Lancome, Lanvin, Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Montblanc, Nails Inc., Narciso Rodriguez, Nine West, Paco Rabanne, Placecol, Puma, Quorum, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, Rihanna, Roberto Cavalli, Shakira, Swarovski, Taylor Swift, Ted Lapidus, Thierry Mugler, Trind, Usher, Valentino, Van Cleef & Arpels, Versace, Viktor & Rolf and last but not least Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ll be sure to let you know about any of my purchase experiences from Red Square and how the service is versus the service in the actual shops! Last time I visited Johannesburg, I had superb service at the Sandton City store!

Are you going to check out Red Square online?

Be sure to let me know your experiences, if they are before mine!

Avril Lavigne Models Her New Line For 2012

Hiya Poutlings

The interwebs has been flooded with loads of pictures of Avril Lavigne wearing her new line of clothing, ABBEY DAWN for 2012. I must say, I’m impressed by some of the clothing, its unique, and I do like some of it. The shoes are WOW. I want some of these shoes. As some of you may be aware, I used to love Avril Lavigne, and parts me deep down inside still do, when she is not doing silly things, ahem, green hair, yes, I received a bit of slack about saying that it was a blonde move in the past about that, but I’m sorry, GREEN hair does not make a statement if your hair is naturally blonde, it looks like you’ve been swimming in chlorinated pools and well, AHEM, shaving one side of head which is all very blantant in these new promo images… I don’t care if you don’t like that I don’t like it, but really, I think it makes her stunning hair (when its not green…) LOOK LIKE SHITE.

…but try look past that, look at THE SHOES, and THE SKELETON DRESS. I want those. I do. hahaha.

But anywayyy… Here are some images of Avril wearing her new collection.

A penny for your thoughts?

The Fountain of Youth: Stars That Don’t Age

Hey Poutlings!

So, as I watched the new No Doubt music video for their song Settle Down, I noticed that Gwen Stefani looked almost EXACTLY the way she looked in her music video for Hey Baby, which was released 2003 – a whopping 9 years ago!

She still looks absolutely amazing and like Gwen, many other stars have been physically stuck in their twenties – not that I think they’re complaining!

Is it a new procedure? Or do these celebrities simply have good genes? You be the judge!

Well hopefully we can all age so gracefully – here’s holding thumbs!

Have a fab Tuesday further peeps!

The Bad Hairday… We All Have Them!

Hi Pouters!

In honour of Sandylashxx going to the hairdresser for the first time in 10 years.

Celebrities have access to some of the best hair stylists in the entire world, and yet they still have bad hair days.

Have a look at some of the worst bad hair days I’ve come across on the net!

It wasn't until now that we knew a supermodel as beautiful as Kate Upton could have a bad hair day.

That's one hell of a royally bad hair day, Kate!

Vertically challenged Jill Zarin has a solution for her height, pile a foot of hair on your head!

Rachel Griffiths shows the world why one should never ride in a convertible with the top down to an event.

Avril Lavigne, you're 27, not 14. You have no excuse. Whatsoever.

Cameron Diaz is blown away at how awesome her Starbucks is!

Nicki Minaj looks like a cross between Marge Simpson and candy floss

David Beckham was clearly tired of hearing how hot he is. Don't worry, nobody's saying that now, Becks

Is she trying to look like a greying grandma? Even Pink admits that her stylist ruined her hair!

Sharon Stone puts Snooki to shame with her helmet head poof.

Its rumoured Elvis is one of Alicia's biggest musical influences, well, I'm not sure about the musical part, maybe... hair influences?

Kelly lost a ton of weight, but it appears to have gone to her hair!!

Kesha always strikes me as being dirty, but I didn't know she was stupid enough to stick her finger into a plug point... I can't help but wonder what she is hiding in that mohowk!

Adrienne Bailon's hair is so side-heavy, she had to balance it out with an equally massive earring.

Remember the day Kaley Cuco played in the hay...

Anne Hathaway keeps herself safe on the red carpet with her massive helmet head.

it's Janet ... Mr. Jackson, if you're nasty.

Oh what type of post would this be without taking a stab at Jersey Shore, stop judging me, I haven't done it ages! Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino found religion ... in his hair.

Johnny Weir, you're not a ballerina, you're a figure skater.

hahahahaha.... Kellis... hahahahaha!

Let's play a game, its called... WHERE'S WHOOPI?

Splendid comb over Charles, just splendid!

This is unheard of Jennifer Anniston having a bad hair day...

Jared Leto needs to learn the rule of mohawks: do not do them.

Ahh, so this is why Lady Gaga wears so many wigs!

 

Jay Manuel really needs to find a look look. ASAP. You're no silver fox like George Clooney.

 

Cassie's hair is the perfect example of why electric razors are not suited for children.

 

Nooo! Mel B lives up to her Scary Spice nickname with this 'do. But what's a half-shaved 'do without ...

Avril’s Black Eye & Bloody Nose

Avril Lavigne has been left with a “black eye” and a “bloody nose” after being attacked by five people. The singer was involved in a fight outside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel at around 1 a.m. Sunday morning, and her boyfriend, Brody Jenner, was hit in the head with a bottle while trying to break it up.  Today, Lavinge confirmed the altercation via Twitter with a tweet saying,

“I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it. To clear things up I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is f**ked.  As in black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts. So not ok to be abusive to others. Violence is NEVER the answer.”

Always remember pouters, there is never smoke without fire, so I’m sure there is another side to this story, however as she stated in her tweet, violence is never the answer, unless if “hit me” was the statement.

Be good, be safe, be beautiful.
