This week I’ll be bringing you my first Red Carpet fabulousness starting with the Amazingly talented and deliciously yummy Christian Cooke seen here with his equally stunning girlfriend and Glee star Dianna Agron.
Christian is starring in a truly thought provoking film Unconditional Love . So grab a coffee, get comfy and check it out.
So I can’t claim today’s words to be my own. They are from the scrumptious A.J Rogers, who you can find on Twitter @MsAJRogers.
A beautiful and heartfelt show – Dabney talks candidly with Stephen Dimmick, the lovely host of Daily Dimmick. In this no-holds-barred interview, Stephen shares with us some of the deepest parts of his personal life and what brought him to become the bright light for himself and for all women he encounters.
Stephen Dimmick is an internationally acclaimed make-up artist. His talent can be seen from the runways of Paris for Valentino, Calvin Kleinand Mark Jacobs to esteemed celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Anna Kendrick, the Kardashians and many more. With his stylish fedora, Stephen loves transforming women into the goddess they hold within. He has an innate ability to help women see their lives through honest discussions about anything and everything while transforming them through the talent of his make-up brush. His work has been featured in Shape, Interview, InStyle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan and on the covers of Time and International editions of Vogue Magazine.
In this interview Stephen is wide open and shares some of the most intimate moments of his life, from the deepest heartache along with beautiful triumph and the ability to overcome anything at any age. An intuitiveness at the age of 10, Stephen knew there was something about him that was different and that he was here for a reason. Unfortunately, this difference and passionate understanding did not make it easy for him as a young boy, enduring the cruelest of bullying and being treated like an outcast.
Thankfully, there was a little voice inside, an inner force that gave him the strength to pull it all together and make him believe there was something bigger and brighter. It was this that kept him moving forward to learn he had a bigger voice, a voice that could help women everywhere.
Listen to the show to find out how Twitter changed his life. Stephen says, “Twitter, truly encapsulates change for me – It’s what gave me change, it’s what brought me here, it’s what introduced me to people who gave me a new direction – and the people that gave me a new direction were all of you out there.”

This is just the tip of the iceberg to teen suicide.
This is dedicated to a friend who Gary Samson who never made it into adulthood. As some of you know this video is auto Tweeted and posted to Facebook and thankfully it has already been seen by a couple of people. One of those people to see this was one of my friend Lail. Lail showed this video to her 15 year old daughter and after asking her mum I was promptly sent a friend request on Facebook. Why am I telling you this? Because you never know who you will impact by telling your story to, warts and all. There is beauty everywhere and in my experience the most incredible beauty is often found in depths of ones murkiest and darkest times. Sit back sistah’s, get comfortable, tune in and turn up the volume.

You may have noticed that I didn’t actually Daily Dimmick yesterday. Namely because two incredible things happened yesterday. The first was an amazing meeting which will be part of a new blog post in the weeks to come. But I digress. The second incredible situation was a long time coming.
Yesterday I met with a beautiful woman by the name of Leticia Connell. Leticia and I met 26 years ago in Brisbane, Australia when we were young, crazy teenagers. We were lucky enough to be in the subculture of New Wave, New Romantic or one of the myriad of other names that were thrown around back then to describe who we were.
Since the advent of Facebook and Twitter so many wonderful people have come out of the woodwork and we’ve had the absolute pleasure of reconnecting. The teen years were indeed tumultuous and difficult. Believe it or not reconnecting with friends from this period of my life has cleared away many insecurities I’ve carried through life. Time and age are a wonderful ally to a person’s state of mind if you allow it. Alas some have peeked there heads out and just as quickly disappeared back into the anonymity of the ethernet. As much as this leaves a sadness I understand it as well.
Leticia is one of those amazing friends who came out of the woodwork. We dated back then, during the time that this photograph was taken.
The most amazing thing about the passing of time is no matter what life has thrown at one it does not change their essence. Life has thrown both of us some treacherous obstacles and Leticia is still that scrumptious wonderful women I met 26 years ago with the exception that she now has the wonder of a “mini me” in tow. Immy is her name and she’s just the most joyous little angel. I pretend to not like children but alas I’m just a sucker for kids and I can’t hide it. Life is coming full circle and I’m loving it.
I’m grateful for how broken I’ve been and I’ll probably be broken again. Thanks to little angels like Pinky and https://www.facebook.com/MalibuRosie I learn more about the beauty of being broken. Come along and get grateful.
So many of you may be looking at this extremely honest picture of Sarah Jessica Parker thinking “WOW, What’s wrong with her skin”. I am here to tell you that there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with her skin. We’ve been raised to believe that pore free and wrinkle free skin is what constitutes good skin. This is total BS! Yes, we would love all love to have as few wrinkles as possible and pores the size of ant toes. Unfortunately this is not realistic. Today’s video was inspired after I saw the lash curling video. I have ruddy Irish skin and felt somewhat embarrassed to see it in film. So what did I do? Find out here.
