Miranda Kerr confesses love story

  

Miranda Kerr confesses love story

Miranda Kerr started her modelling career when she was her early teens and since then she has become one of the most prominent models in the world. In fact, she was the first Australian to become a Victoria's Secret Angel (in 2007). In 2008, she was listed among the world's 10 highest-earning models and has modelled for the likes of Prada, Balenciaga and Vogue.

At a pre-Grammys gala in Beverly Hills, the 32-year-old stepped out publicly for the first time with her new boyfriend Evan Spiefel, the billionaire founder of Snapchat.
This is her first public romance since her divorce from Orlando Bloom, with whom had a son who is now five years old.
The model revealed she met her current boyfriend at a dinner in LA for Louis Vuitton and became friends. “We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating,” she said.
They couple confirmed their relationship on November 2015. "We met actually at a Louis Vuitton dinner in New York a year ago," she said. "We just started out as friends and eventually it developed into more." Kerr said Spiegel was a "really kind person and very genuine and very authentic", adding, "also he's very intelligent".
The Australian model stepped her relationship with 25-year-old Snapchat founder Evan Spiefel up to the next level by introducing him to her young son, Flynn. They had been dating for 6 months, a period she agreed with her ex-husband Orland Bloom when they separated. “We had to know the person for six month and feel good about them,” she said.
“Even met Flynn, so yeah, things are going well. Orlando thinks he's great. We're just a modern family now!”
Despite the fact that she is 7 years older than him, Kerr said it does not always feel she is dating a younger man who has an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion. “He's 25, but he acts like he's 50,” she said.
"He's not out partying. He goes to work in Venice [Beach], he comes home. We don't go out. We'd rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early."
But she also admitted there were some advantages to dating a younger man, confessing she has “the best of both worlds.”
She also shared her beauty tips. “Beautiful skin is healthy skin. That's why it's important to feed your skin from the inside as well as outside. Choosing fresh, organic – when possible – produce, drinking enough water and using a skincare that is nutrient-rich and full of essential fatty acids. That's why I developed KORA Organics, it's formulated to feed, protect and nourish your skin”
Miranda Kerr also shared what she does every day to stay in shape. “I work out most days but I do things that I enjoy so it's less of a chore… I practice yoga daily even if only for 20 minutes, and then rotate between Pilates, ballet, swimming, cycling, hiking and keeping up with Flynn.”

 

Beauty Tips from Aussie Celebs

  

Beauty Tips from Aussie Celebs

Aussie celebs are among the most beautiful in the world, but you are not only born with beauty. You also have to look after yourself. Here are some tips from the most beautiful Aussie celebs:

Ruby Rose: “A beauty product has to be gentle so it feels good on the skin. It also needs to inspire you a little. I do Bikram yoga and I don't drink alcohol or soft drink. I do, however, drink coffee, water, coconut water, green tea and peppermint tea.”
Kylie Minogue: “I'm pretty obsessive about sunblock and, at night, I use a really good moisturiser. I can't remember the last time I went to bed without doing my routine but I keep things pretty simple.”
Margot Robbie: Queenslander Margot Robbie is a huge fan of Australian-made organic skin care products. She uses products for her face that include sea buckthorn oil and jojoba oil.
Asher Keddie: Asher Keddie's beauty secret is to eat whatever she wants in moderation. Her diet includes good red wine at dinner. However, she eats clean, unprocessed goods, drink plenty of water and gets her hands dirty on her farm in Victoria.
Nicole Kidman: “I wear sunscreen, I don't smoke and I take care of myself, and I am proud to say that.” Kidman also swims 30 minutes every day but she makes sure her fair skin is covered up.
Shanina Shaik: "If you want to apply foundation or cover-up, mix it with your moisturiser first — don't just use the foundation alone. I find it goes into your skin and gives it a more natural look, so you don't get what I call 'the mask.' Nobody wants that over-makeup look."
Natalie Roser: "My biggest beauty secret would be skin preparation. A good primer and moisturiser are so important and help me ensure that my makeup stays flawless all day.”
Elyse Knowles: "Prepping the skin is very important . . . make all the red blood cells come to the surface by massaging the face whilst moisturising."
Kelly Gale: "Every time I wash my hair, I put it into two plaits and go to sleep like that. It makes my hair nice and wavy. I have a natural wave, but this makes it more controlled and less frizzy."
Jesinta Campbell: "The chop was the best thing I ever did. My hair is so easy to do! I can literally get out of the shower, let it dry naturally and then just flip it over to one side."
Lilla Conradsen: "My biggest beauty secret would have to be the salt water from the ocean. I tend to swim as much as possible, even throughout Winter."
Elouise Morris: "I love texturised hair as mine is super straight, I usually spritz sea salt spray or dry shampoo to give it body and that sexy beach hair look!"
Ashley Hart: "I have been travelling a lot . . . so being healthy and looking after myself is key. I meditate twice a day and always try to fit in a yoga class so I keep my beauty routine fairly simple. Cleansing and hydrating is super important."
Elyse Taylor: "Beauty means being natural and letting your personality come through."
Lucy Markovic: "Mixing nutmeg, honey and lemon juice together creates a fantastic DIY face mask. It smells amazing as well!"
Miranda Kerr: "In the Summer, I always carry my Kora Organics Citrus Energising Mist ($39.95) with me, that's really good for Summer. I'll put that in the refrigerator; I'll have one at home because it's so invigorating. It's not like a regular face mist, it's a really rejuvenating face mist which really helps balance the skin and rejuvenate the skin, it's got lots of antioxidants in there, it holds the moisture in the skin as well."

Rose Byrne welcomes newborn

  

Rose Byrne welcomes newborn(1)

The Sydney-born actress, who welcomed baby Rocco with partner Bobby Cannavale recently, stepped out at a screening of her latest film the Meddler.

“I feel just sleep-deprived, and still in the tunnel,” Byrne, 36, revealed of her foray into motherhood. “It's has been a challenge, the first three months. It's intense. My brain's really fried.”
Her husband Cannavale broke the news of the birth of his son on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert confirming Byrne had popped on February 1. Cannavale didn't give out many details except for that the baby was “beautiful” and was named Rocco.
“I had a baby on Monday, yes,” the Vinyl star said. “You know, I didn't do anything. We (men) don't do anything and I'm so tired. I think I've gained 28 pounds (12kg) since Monday.
“I mean, I'm not kidding you. Like, this jacket fit so well, like, last Thursday. But I've been eating so much.”
Rocco is Rose's first-born but Bobby has a 20-year-old son named Jake from ex-wife Jenny Lumet.
The doting duo have been dating since 2012, and have since worked together in the 2014's Annie and Adult Beginners as well as 2015's Spy.
The Meddler is a comedy-drama that tells the story of an ageing mother who moves to Los Angeles to be closer to her daughter. There she sparks a relationship with a police officer. Susan Sarandon, J.K. Simmons and Jerrod Carmichael also feature on the film.

 

Kylie Minogue hairstyle

  

Kylie Minogue hairstyle

Kylie Minogue travelled 30 years back in time and looked like she had stepped straight out of the 80s when hit the town of London wearing her spiral perm. The 47-year-old superstar appeared with her spiral perm during an outing with her fiance Joshua Sasse, 28. Her hairstyle gave fans a flashback of the perm she sported during her time playing Charlene on Neighbours back in the 80s. Photo is from Queens bday in 2018.
Kylie stepped out with Sasse for dinner at the Wolseley restaurant after performing at a wedding in London.
The pop star wore her bleach blonde hair in tight curls and looked as if she has barely aged a day since she was wearing the same hairstyle 30 years ago.
Along with her wild hair, she wore a chic black top and trousers, as well as a pair of high-heels.
Back in the 80s, Kylie's curly hair became her trademark after she launched her career in Neighbours and then set out to take the world of pop music by storm.
For fans worldwide, it looks like she might have revived her initial look, but the makeover might go unnoticed on her young lover, Sasse, who was born the same month Kylie released her first single, I Should Be So Lucky, in December 1987.
During the romantic dinner, people could spot the sparkling engagement ring which she accepted from Joshua earlier this year.
Kylie met the young actor while filming TV show Galavant in September, and she confirmed the romance two months later.
They announced their engagement in February when they confirmed the nuptials in a newspaper announcement.
The statement read: “The engagement is announced between Joshua, son of the late Dominic Sasse and of Mary Heale (nee Macauley), of Herefordshire, and Kylie, eldest daughter of Ronald and Carol Minogue, of Melbourne, Australia.”
The singer has previously shrugged off the nearly two decades gap between the couple, telling a radio station in her native Australia: “I think the general consensus is, we kind of look right together. So even though on paper it might not look right, it just is right. He is an absolutely brilliant, brilliant guy. And even if I try and act cool and natural, it's written all over my face that I am very happy.”
She has also been particularly effusive about the happiness she has found with Sasse, confessing that she had “a love in my life, which is just a beautiful thing”, and even letting drop that she might want to start a family. “If that were to happen that would be incredible.”

 

Gay Comedians Get Married

  

Gay Comedians Get Married

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Australia since 9 December 2017 but this article looks back when it was not possible.

Since they could not marry their actual loves, comedians Zoe Coombs Marr and Rhys Nicholson, who are both gay, got hitched in a Melbourne ceremony as a protest against Australia's prohibition on same-sex marriage.
The wedding took place as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where Coombs Marr took out the prestigious Barry Award for best show.
The protest was in fact a colourful party with music, dances, mock protesters and an impressive cast of Australian comedians.
But not everything was a party. There were some serious moments as well. For instance, comedian Hannah Gadsby gave a powerful speech, saying the “think of the children” argument commonly used against same-sex marriage is actually one in favour of gay marriage.
“When you say to a person, ‘No. You cannot join in. You do not belong in this community', the end of that sentence is not the end of the story. The ramifications are traumatic to the individual,” she said.
“Rhys and Zoe are doing this for all of the children. Because at the moment, what we are doing in this country is saying to all of the children that it is OK to exclude a minority. It is OK to be a bully,” Gadsby continued.
“Through their union, filled with love and disrespect, from both within and without, what Rhys and Zoe would like to say to all children is that being inclusive is just as important as being included.”
The ceremony's grand finale features the bride and the groom declining to kiss each other and opting instead for giving a passionate kiss to their same-sex partners.
“The idea came to me in a dressing room,” she said. “I was in drag, dressed as a man, and Rhys was in semi-drag as an androgynous dandy. Rhys said, ‘We look like a really fucked up wedding couple'.”
“We thought it was pretty funny, and the idea stuck in my head. I thought it was something we could do to assert ourselves in a way that was fun but also quite provocative.”
According to Coombs Marr, the event was a “massive farce”.
“It is a farce that we can't get married, that we're still talking about this in 2016,” she said. “We want to say, come on guys, this is really silly. We can't marry our partners but we can marry each other.”
Apart from its goal to protest and to entertain, the ceremony also served as a fundraiser for LGBTI youth charity Minus18. The Melbourne-based group run events - including same-sex and gender diverse formals - and provide resources and support to LGBTI youth.
“It's really important that young people are getting the message that their relationships are their own and as valid as anybody else's,” said Coombs Marr.

Australian most famous celebs

  

Cate Blanchett

They are a mix of good looks, nice accents and mostly worldclass talent, which have propelled their careers in Hollywood and worldwide. Here are the most famous celebs from Australia.

First and foremost, Hugh Jackman. This heartthrob became famous for his portrayal of Wolverine in seven “X-Men” movies. However, that is not his best work compared to his incredible performances. Some people believe his most brilliant work has been as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables”. Jackman was born in Sydney and started to focus on his career as an actor when he was 22.
Portia De Rossi became famous with her roles on “Ally McBeal,” “Arrested Development,” “Better Off Ted” and “Nip/Tuck.” Also many people know her as Ellen DeGeneres's wife, whom she's been married to since 2008. Portia was born in Horsham and raised in Grovedale before moving to the US in her early 20s.
Although Nicole Kidman was actually born in Hawaii, that was only during a temporary stay that her parents were undertaking in the United States. Kidman returned to Australia when she was 4. Later on in life, she made her way back to the US and performed in “Days of Thunder” in 1990 where she met her first husband Tom Cruise. She is also famous for her work in “Moulin Rouge” and “The Hours.”
Even though Cate Blanchett lives in Hollywood, she was born and bred in Melbourne and still considers Australia her home. She become worldwide famous with her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth I of England in “Elizabeth”, as well as Galadriel in “The Lord of the Rings”. Since then, she has been starring in big-name blockbusters.
Mel Gibson is a different case. He was born in a small town in New York, but he considers Australia his true home where he moved to when he was 12. He moved to Sydney at that age, also his mother's birthplace. In his early 20s, Gibson had his big break in the Australian post-apocalyptic thriller “Mad Max,” and later moved to Hollywood to become one of America's biggest names.
Russel Crowe is another actor that was born offshore. He is actually a New Zealander but moved to Sydney when he was only 4 years old. After reaching a peak in his music career in Australia and New Zealand, Crowe moved to Hollywood to pursue bigger roles. Crowe become worldwide famous with his starring role in “Gladiator”.
Even though Rose Byrne had previously acted in secondary roles, she has only become Hollywood famous relatively recently. She has starred in numerous blockusters like “Bridesmaids,” “X-Men: First Class,” and “Neighbors.” Born and bred in Sydney, she has recently filmed a comedy Spy along another famous actress Melissa McCarthy.

 

No more selfies

  

wedding cake rock travel aus

The Wedding Cake Rock formation in the Royal National Park is one of the most beloved places to take a selfie in Australia. From handstands, selfies and couple shots, the peculiar land formation has become a popular setting to snap a daring photo.

Unfortunately, there are visible fractures observed in the formation. Therefore, the country's National Parks and Wildlife Service has warned visitors to stay away from the beloved attraction located along Sydney's Royal Coast Walk.
A recently completed geotechnical assessment of the formation's condition shows that the rock is "precariously balancing on the edge of the cliff and severely undercut," according to an NPWS news release. Accordingly, the entire rock formation could collapse anytime within a decade.
"We have now received the results and the report is clear -- standing on the rock platform risks a truly tragic outcome," said Gary Dunnett of the NPWS in New South Wales.
"We will now take action to create a new and safer way to allows visitors to take in the beauty of the site without compromising their safety," said Dunnett.
"This will likely mean a new viewing platform further back from the edge that will allow people to safely take those incredible shots of the rock formation that have become internationally recognizable. This is not about closing the site, it is about making it a safe place to visit and enjoy the view."
People have taken to social media and have linked the closure to the recent interest of the rock, encouraging daredevils to take risky photos near the edge. In 2014, a 23-year-old university student fell to his death from the rock. According to the Sydney Morning Herald "he was believed to be hanging from the edge when the soft rock crumbled."
According to park officials, the fractures are part of a natural process; however, they emphasize that visitors shouldn't go near cliff edges.
"The fractures on the rock could date back hundreds and potentially thousands of years," a spokesperson for the New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage stated. “It's part of the normal process of rocks being worn over time by the elements and a result of the rock geology. All visitors to national parks or other coastal headlands are warned to stay well away from cliff edges."
Despite the warning messages, visitors to the Royal National Park, south of Sydney, are continuing to risk their lives for an Instagram worthy photo. However, authorities have had enough. Therefore, from now on, park rangers will have the authority to issue on-the-spot fines of at least $300 for sightseers who ignore the warning signs, jump the fence and risk their lives for a picture.
Regional manager of Metro Southwest National Parks and Wildlife Service, Gary Dunnett, said daredevils believe the rock to be solid and safe, but the reality is that the formation is at great risk of crumbling into the sea below.
“People look at this pure white rock, and they think it's as stable as concrete,” Mr Dunnett said. “But the white appearance is because oxides and other contaminants that are usually in the stone matrix are bleached out of it, and the result is that the rock is much more fragile than other coastal cliff lines.”
He continued: “People who stand on the edge of any rock or cliff face are putting themselves at peril. But Wedding Cake Rock could collapse when people are standing many metres from the edge.”
Mr Dunnett said they hoped fines will deter people from risking their lives.
“We put in warning signs, and even a new solid fence two months ago. But because it's so sturdy, people are using it to climb over and access the rock,” he said.
“We have seen on social media, people are posing next to the warning signs before they hop over the fence and take a photo on the edge. We will issue penalty notices of $300 for people who ignore the signage. Our expectation is that by issuing an amount of penalty notices, we are hoping to send a shock wave through social media, which is the same medium that started attracting people getting these photos in the first place.
“But we don't want to discourage people from visiting.”

 

Biggest Selfie in Australia

  

gigaselfie

Since it was Australians who invented selfies, it was to be expected they would be the ones to come up with the biggest selfies.

Everyone likes to take selfies, and if you are travelling it is somehow awkward to ask people to take your photo. The problem with selfies, though, is that it's hard to see past the beaming face of the selfie-taker.
That is why Tourism Australia has come with a new service for taking selfies in which the self is just one part of an epic widescreen landscape. There are no selfie sticks involves, so how did they do this? Giga Selfie, billed as the world's biggest selfie service, uses a super high definition camera and mobile technology to take photos big enough to suit egos of all shapes and sizes.
The fist place this app was launched was in Gold Coast, as it is a holiday destination and hot spot where travellers like to take selfies.
So how does this work? Well travellers using the service stand on a designated spot on the beach and use a “Giga Selfie” app - only available on that day, on that spot - on their smartphone devised to trigger a distant camera.
A huge selfie is then emailed to them as a short video clip which starts as a close-up of their face and zooms out to reveal the surrounding scenery.
The cheeky project is a part of a campaign to attract “a younger and social media savvy Japanese consumer.”
“Gold Coast is one of the most popular and visited Australian destinations amongst the Japanese,” Leo Seaton, TA's general manager in media and communications. “The beaches also provide an iconic backdrop for something like this.”
The campaign is focused on Australia's aquatic and coastal experiences.
TA's managing director John O'Sullivan says Japan is key market for Australia's tourism sector, with Japanese visitors contributing $980 million annually.
However, this app is not expected to foster a big selfie frenzie as the special camera and lens - 100 times more powerful than typical photo gear - is only capable of snapping 10 giant shots per hour.
Given the costs and logistics of the service, it is only scheduled for deployment in the Gold Coast, even though the promotional video includes multiple spots around Australia.
