Event: Onya Aid – We’ve Got Your Back!

What are you up to this Australia Day? Is it as fabulous an option as Onya Aid, where 100% of proceeds go towards the QLD Flood Appeal, the champagne and good company will be abundant and auctions for your favourite items will be going off?

With a tiny $5 door fee (that goes directly to the Appeal remember) this is an affordable and fun way to celebrate Australia Day.

As Beauty Editor of Onya Magazine, I’ve already been busy organising some fantastic beauty hampers for Auction, and some singular items for the Lucky Dip. Trust me, you’ll want to dip your hand in that bucket!

If you’d like to RSVP (or have a little spy on who else will be there!) click here to see the official Facebook Event page.

Hoping to see you there,

Are you the new Beauty Intern for Onya Magazine?

As I announced in my last post, I have been promoted from Beauty Intern to Beauty Editor at Onya Magazine. The previous and fabulous BE, Gaynor Alder has moved across to jet-set around Australia in style for the position of Travel Editor and I will be replacing her.

So, if you do the math that leaves a big gaping hole in the Beauty Department. Myself and Beauty Writer Beth Keamy are on the hunt for an amazing new intern to fill my shoes. Louboutins, mind you. Ha! I wish.

In a nutshell, we will require someone to:

– Be extremely organised and efficient.

– Have a passion for beauty products (which shouldn’t be too difficult…) especially those that are 100% Aussie owned and made, as that is what we will be working with.

– Liaise with PR and beauty brands on behalf of the team.

– Be well presented, with excellent written and spoken communication skills.

– Be a team player, Onya is one big happy family.

– Computer skills a definite plus.

– Creative. We need to keep these ideas coming!

– Be able to contribute articles to Onya Magazine. Wonderful for your portfolio!

To read the job description in full –  MELBOURNE BEAUTY INTERN JOB DESCRIPTION.

To apply: please email with your resume, and a few recent samples of your best writing.

Applications close on: Monday 6th December (2 weeks from today) and successful applicants will be interviewed at my discretion.

A notch on the belt, beauty style.

Somehow I think my job may entail a bit more than just doing this... Source:

Well, if this isn’t a peg on the  Am I There Yet? ladder, I’m not sure what is!

As some of you may have seen on Twitter last week, I have just been appointed the role of Beauty Editor at Onya Magazine, where I was previously interning. Yipee! Dreams do come true. Yep, bold was definitely required.

One of the first posts that I wrote when I started this blog back in March was entitled, How do you know when you’re ‘there’?. I thought it would help explain the reason behind the name of my blog, and why it wasn’t something like LiPsTiCkLuVah4EvA69 (plus, it was already taken).

So I am more than thrilled to add this recent promotion to my “How do you know when you’re ‘there’?” list, which as I said in the post, is still a fluid and evolving goal. Satisfaction always is, right?

I’m really proud to be working with Onya Magazine, an online and soon to be bi-annual print magazine that focuses on all the best that Australia has to offer. I love being able to give 100% Australian made and owned brands a little bit of the limelight, as they can often be looked over for the international conglomerates. But seriously, give them a try, there’s some impressive stuff out there!

Of course I’ll still be organising my time to post regularly on Am I There Yet? but do pop over to Onya for a squiz every now and again.

I’ll also be advertising for an intern soon… so if that’s something you might be interested in start to get your application prepared!
