A sneak peek at what went on when planning Aphrodite's content over the coming fortnight or so... as you can see, we're prepared to divulge our messy, crazy lives in the pursuit of chasing the goddess of the beauty and love...
Tara does her intern's job well...from filing mags to reviewing products, she's certainly a team asset. … [More...]
Short bio: Technology and publishing Jill Of All Trades. Traveler. Dog-lover. Organisation-obsessed. Sparkle-fanatic.
You love to chase: Balance and happiness.
Wardrobe Must: Nude heels - they work with everything! My wardrobe is largely filled with basics and sparkles. I struggle to find things I like that fit somewhere in between. I tend to do the most credit-card damage at Zara, Forever 21 and BCBG Max Azria.
Fave Place to Eat: Anywhere tasty so long as I'm with fabulous friends.
Beauty Product you can't live without: At the moment I really love the facial … [More...]
We all want the secret to perfectly clear and radiant skin, and unless you’re a freak of nature (and even then), it’s going to take some TLC.
Luckily for you, I have found something that is sure to fix the biggest skin woes. Regardless of your skin type and needs, the SUPER range by Kit Cosmetics and Dr. Perricone is bound to help you out.
Dr Perricone is Oprah’s right-hand man in the skin department, so we can trust that he knows a thing or two about good skin. And if you can’t trust him, trust me, because Aphrodite isn’t in the business of recommending anything … [More...]
I’m assuming, Chasers, that like me you get really frustrated when your mascara runs and it smudges down your cheek, or when the lashings of mascara you applied earlier leave tiny little dots around your eye. Am I right?
It truly is a pain in the ass. There are no other words for it.
Well, Chasers, I have a solution for you. Let me introduce the Panda Pen.
All of your panda eye incidents can be removed by this small corrector pen that squirts eye makeup remover onto a thin, revolvable cotton strip. It isn’t oily yet it slides easily across your skin and removes even the … [More...]
Ladies and Aphrodite Chasers,

The entire premise of The Aphrodite Chase is the hunt for all things beautiful and lovely. Things that would make life a little bit sweeter, whether they're goods, services or experiences. Unfortunately, most of these come at some sort of price, and a quite literal price at that. Pretty things cost money. And a lot more money than they would have cost in my Nanna's days (then again, my Nanna made her own things pretty...and saw pretty things in the eveyday, which is another story in and of itself).
The great exciting thing about the group buying method is that the price has become a heck of … [More...]
Short bio: Lorna Jane set up her first store in Brisbane in 1990 and over the last 21 years she has grown her business to 104 stores nationwide, with international expansion is scheduled for 2012. Always a fitness fanatic, Lorna Jane originally trained as a dental technician. All the time she was studying she taught aerobics and yoga but could never find anything suitable to wear, so she started making clothes at home for herself and then for her friends. As demand for her stylish designs grew, Lorna realised that fitness fashion was her calling and so she quit her job as a dental technician … [More...]
Growing up I was never really taken with London. New York? Yes. Paris? Bien sûr. But London? It just seemed kind of dreary and depressing. How wrong I was. As Christopher Winn once said, “London is whatever you want it to be” so picture your wildest dreams. I suggest you tick off the typical tourist sights first, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, but when you’re done with those, go searching for Aphrodite. Let me show a few of the places that you can look…
High Tea. You’re in London. You must have High Tea. If you … [More...]
No doubt you would have now realised that Chasing Aphrodite has undergone a little bit of a makeover this week, in line with our desire to make it bigger, better and more user-friendly. But apart from the site design, what has really changed and what's the whole point of it all?
