This week we're obsessed with ...
THIS SERUM-OIL: We love a multi-tasker, and adore one that feels luxury but is affordable: hello The Body Shop's new Vitamin E Overnight Serum in Oil ($44 - which is, granted, not cheap, but is cheaper than comparable serums). The oil has a comforting baby powder smell that all of the Vitamin E range boasts (this is not a scent for everyone, but it has a nostalgic charm for us as Vitamin E was one of the first range's we used, methodically cleansing, toning and moisturising when we first got the starter kit, making a big deal of our skincare maturity at sleepovers with friends). It has a dry oil, lightweight feel, which means it won't mess your pillow, and it's packed with a blend of fair-trade oils that rid the face of that tight post-cleanse feeling.

THIS PIMPLE BUSTER: Recommending spot treatments is always hard - even more than other skincare, what works on one person's skin might not do anything for someone else's. That said, Manuka Doctor's Bee Venom Blemish Cream <a href="http://www.manukadr.co.nz/product-range/apiclear/blemish-cream.html" target="_blank">($17.50 for 25ml)</a> is the only spot cream we've tried that makes a noticeable difference in how quickly our skin heals. Manuka Doctor products are made with purified bee venom, which must be the enemy of pimples, because our persistent chin breakout is a shadow of its former self. We've also found that this cream calms down inflammation, so pimples are less obvious even before they're properly cleared up. Seriously worth a try.

THIS PICTURE OF NICOLAS CAGE BEING A BOSS: Where do we begin? Here's a sneak snap of Nicolas Cage (left) and Andrew Dice Clay (aka FORD FAIRLANE!) just chilling backstage at a Guns N' Roses concert. Now, Dice Clay's lamb chops aside, let's take a look at Cage's outfit ... we have, a cowboy hat, mirrored aviators while inside, Mardi Gras beads, a T-shirt with himself on it, fringed chaps, a purple blazer, a cane, gun holsters and the largest ring in the existence of man. The thing that delights us most about this whole situation is that it looks like Cage is wearing this whole get up without an ounce of irony.

THIS GUYLINER: We need to get Hugh Jackman's makeup artiste on the phone stat, as this subtle lower lash shading is some of the best eyeliner work we've seen in a while. Yes, celebrity men wear makeup, all the time, all of them. So lads, don't feel bad about your pores the size of teaspoons, celeb men have them too they just cover them up. Hugh's def also rocking some well-applied foundation here too, he probably picked up some contouring tips from Seacrest.

THIS WORKOUT: We went to a Les Mills Grit class last night and almost did a vom.com after about three burpees, felt like crying, and wanted to go home. This just makes <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8d2JAoRGnc" target="_blank">this minute-long parkour craziness from Stephen Amell all the more impressive</a>. The video was shot while Amell was training for Arrow Season Three, and we're fairly sure it's proof that he's part mutant. Dude fits a better workout into one minute than we can manage in a week - we love how, after scaling walls and jumping around like a Wildling taking on some weakling Crows, the fellah gets really hard on himself for missing one tiny jump. Chin up Steve.

KATE & WILLS' RECYCLING: To the left we have Kate & Wills in Blenheim during their royal tour of NZ in April (is it just us or does that seem like yonks ago?), and to the right we have Kate & Wills wearing exactly the same outfits, plus a hat minus a tan, at the D-Day events in Normandy on Friday. 'Royal watchers', aka gossip columnists in flannelette pajamas, say the Duchess recycled such a recent outfit so that the focus would be on the occasion instead of what she's wearing. Ironic, then, that the world's media, just for a second, focused on what she was wearing for the fact it was recycled. Less media attention was given to Will's two-time tie than to Kate's $5,000 Alexander McQueen coat.

THIS SNAP OF KIM K'S DRESS: It doesn't matter if you hate the sight of Kim-Ye and their matching black or white leather outfits, or if you dislike the direction Ricardo Tisci is taking at Givenchy. In fact, even if the noise of the nasal Kardashian LA accent makes you want to start prepping for doomsday, there's no denying this Givenchy lace wedding dress is a beautiful piece of work. Kim's been slow-drip feeding us snaps of her big day gown and this one is particularly stunning (we're imagining a lot of Throwback Thursdays are going to be bridal themed now. Beats butt selfies).

This week we're obsessed with the Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen of Reality TV's dresses and a potion that busts pimples, actually.
