How to take a good license photo

It's hard to take a good photo when you aren't allow to smile. Don't give up, here are a few of my tips for taking the best Driver License photo you can....

Do a few facial exercises to relax your muscles first. It doesn't matter how silly you look, this will pay off.
Don't lift or drop your chin
Posture. Drop your shoulders and have a straight back straight. Everyone looks better with a neck :)
Don't wear too much makeup up. I always think your nicest daytime makeup works best
Don't overload with accessories. Don't get me wrong, I over-accessorise everyday but I find that in photos it can look dated quickly.
Don't try to be sexy. You'll look like an idiot.
Relax. The camera picks up nerves like a guard dog.
and smize like you have never smized before.

What I wore: Trip to the salon

This morning I am off to visit one of my favourite people in the world. My gorgeous friend Toni. Not only does she laugh at my jokes, watch sad movies with me and not look in shock when I stuff huge meals into my mouth, she also manages my difficult hair. Toni owns the Beautiful You Hair and Beauty Day Spa and today she need to tend to my roots and trim off my crunchy ends.

What I wore...
This kinda ridiculous Boom Shanker Australian animal print jacket which I love, white Bonds t-shirt, black JAG jeans, an old but awesome belt and cowboy boots. This is the kind of outfit my country boy husband looooves. Giddiup!!

The best dark circle concealer ever!!

School holidays, wet & cold weather and 3 weeks fighting a virus have really rocked me. I've truly spent the last three weeks looking like an extra from 'The Walking Dead'. At least if I really was an extra I would have the benefit of a up-close-and-personal perve at Daryl Dixon.

Because it was time to step back out in public, I decided to hit the beauty counters and find something...anything...at any cost, to make me look a little less like shit.

I must be the only person on the planet that didn't know about Benefit Erase Paste $47. This really is the shizz!!!
This thick, orangy paste camouflages and illuminates the under eye area. I'm almost looking and feeling human.

Now, to deal with my regrowth and overgrown eyebrows.

What's is your go to miracle product?

The Lone Ranger 2013 review

This was one movie I wasn't keen to see. I have a lingering, love affair of Johnny Depp since 21 Jump street and I have a very new, fresh, love affair of the very handsome and very tall Armie Hammer and a girl crush on Helena Bonham Carter but this still wasn't enough.

I dragged myself along to the preview. What else was I going to do on a raining Sunday afternoon? I also took my very excited, young daughter.

Seriously, how could anyone think Johnny Depp with a dead crow in his head was a good idea?
Any woo, I've completely changed my mind. I loved, loved this movie. I want to buy a white horse, I want my husband to wear spurs and I don't even mind the crow.

My daughter can not stop talking about this movie and gave it a 10.5 out of 10. She's cute, but I think she needs some maths tutoring.

I dare you not to smile and whoop when the William Tell Overture blasts through the theatre.

This is an excellent, fun, holiday movie.
