Hello! Think it’s about time I updated seeing as it’s been a while since my last post. I did plan to update sooner but life keeps getting in the way. Anyway, recently went to a Winter Wonderland themed night at what was formally known as Silk Roads, now it has been trashed and graffitied up and renamed to Ms Collins/Scarlett. The venue is just awful and that’s all I can really say about it. Despite that I still braved the cold and rocked up looking like this…

And finally a close up of my makeup…

IMG_3646
I’m bored of my usual neutral coloured eyes and red lips so I thought a little change would be nice. New contacts too, they’re those Neo Vision ones with 4-colour tones or something like that… they take a little getting used to but they’re definitely more natural looking than previous ones that I’ve owned.

Anyhoos, that’s all for now,

Until next time… <3

Today the last of my Herbalife Aloe Shampoo and Redken conditioner finally ran dry. So while I was out and about I decided to try a new shampoo and I was recommended the Paul Mitchell range. It was buy 2 and get 1 free so I thought I might as well get a few other products including a daily moisture treatment and a moisture mist. I got the Shampoo One and Detangler Conditioner pack as recommend by the sales assistant since I said I have dry hair.

IMG_3594Despite being a “gentle” shampoo, it is a little harsher than I’m used to, and considering it contains sulphate I’m not surprised but honestly it’s really no worse than some of the others I’ve used in the past. The “detangler” on the other hand is the deal breaker. It just stinks, like 3-day old chartreuse mixed with burnt liquorice. I thought it might fade or I’d get used to it but no… it’s just awful. On top of that it’s really watery, I don’t know if that’s just how it’s supposed to be or if I picked up a dud. I haven’t tried the others yet, but I am hoping they’re better than the other two. On the plus side though, the conditioners use water soluble silicones which I suppose is slightly better than the usual mainstream stuff. Price wise, they’re not too bad, ranging from around $20 ~ $28 depending on the product. That places them above the usual drugstore/supermarket brands but a little below most of the higher end professional brands. In general, I’m going to have to try them out for a little longer to give a definitive decision about them but so far they’re just okay. Nothing special, but better than a lot of other stuff that’s on the market.

Well that’s all for now,

Until next time… <3

Hello! It’s finally Winter here in Melbourne and more so recently it’s become cold enough to put away my summer wear and drag out the warmer selection of my wardrobe. Additionally, Melbourne finally has their own H&M, which opened a couple of weeks ago and has taken over the old GPO. Initially I decided to wait out the first week to avoid waiting in the ridiculous lines. Finally on Wednesday I ducked in to have a look and to be honest I’m quite impressed. Overall, it’s pretty big with two floors and a mezzanine level. The prices are almost the same as other countries, with the exception of a dollar more here and there. At the moment it seems that selection of clothing is the dribs and drabs of last seasons collection, as well as their usual wide variety of basics. Since it’s cold at the moment, I bought myself a few sweaters and a couple of jeans.

IMG_3544IMG_3561
You can’t tell from the photo but the jeans are actually green ^^ from the Super-Stetch Denim range. I also bought a red and a black pair too just because they were so cheap and they’re actually skinny around the ankles.

In other news, after months and months of saving I finally bought new boots because I’ve repaired mine one too many times and I don’t think they could survive another Winter. It took me a whole afternoon of wandering around Chadstone but I finally found a replacement pair that is both super sexy and comfortable.

IMG_3567
They’re from a store called Merchant Shoes and they’re made from 100% leather. I won’t say how much they were, except that they weren’t cheap nor were they insanely expensive. I’m absolutely in love with them, and even though they’re a bit higher than I’m used to, they’re still super comfy.

Aand… because I still had some money left over I bought myself another pair of ankle boots from Tony Bianco ^^;

IMG_3562
They were just too cute and I couldn’t resist!

Well that’s all for now… here’s one last selfie for the Winter (:

Hello! So I finally got around to making a new post after going shopping in Melbourne for the first time in aaages. Pretty good haul this time too. So many stores with lots to choose from or maybe it’s ’cause I haven’t really bought anything from a physical store in a while. I’ll slowly get around to taking proper photos for all of them. But for now I’ll just throw up a quick snap of my favourites….

Leopard Print Skirt: Dotti
Platform Shoes: Dotti

I’m also going through a bit of a retro pinup phase lately so there’s going to be a lot leopard print, wiggle skirts and crop tops over the next few posts lol. That reminds me I still need to post my mini H&M haul from my last trip to China… But that can wait ;P

Until next time… <3

 

 

Hello! Just thought I’d throw in a quick post to say I’m still around, just been a little busy with real life and all that jazz. Also went to China over Christmas and New Years, that was interesting… anyways I won’t go in much detail with all that since it’s in the past now.

In other news, yesterday (for those of us here in Australia and similar timezones) it was Valentine’s Day. I hope you all were spoilt rotten by your significant others! ^^ For the first time I actually bothered to do something myself, even if it was just chill out in front of a TV with some cheesecake lol…

IMG_3274Doesn’t it look awesome?

IMG_3267And this was my outfit… skirts from eBay, and the top is from General Pants & Co’s Neon Hart collection

Well that’s all for now,

Until next time… <3

Hello! It’s been a while since my last post. I was travelling around China so I didn’t really have access to internet. But I’ll leave that for another day or at least until I get some more photos of the trip off my sister. Now I’ve been seeing the whole Korean Gradient Lip trend popping up for a while now and have been meaning to give it a try myself.

First step, prep the face with foundation and concealer. Usually there’s some base/primer too but because it’s just for fun I skipped it and I also decided to dust off my old Dior Nude foundation and DiorSkin Forever pressed powder foundation.


Because I’ve tanned a bit while I was travelling, it’s considerably lighter than my skintone. Thankfully this was just for fun so I only did the front bit of my neck ^^;

For the lips I used Lip Gelee in Lust is Lush and Lipstick in Morange both by Mac. Unfortunately though, Mac have long discontinued their Lip Gelee range.


The colour is a little more orange than the photo but the filter I used and lighting makes it looks a bit pinky.

And the end result is…


Bad choice in eyelashes I know… they’re new too and I didn’t expect them to be so wispy and then the bottom ones didn’t match… then I couldn’t be bothered redoing my eyeliner so I just extended it and went with a dramatic Japanese Gyaru look… urgh disaster… ><

Now for a close up of the lips…


I had to keep smearing the foundation around the edges to keep the gradient effect because my lips are naturally quite pink. But overall I quite like the look ^^

Anyhoos, that’s all for now…

Until next time… <3

Hello! Today’s post is another product review regarding the Aloe Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner set by Herbalife.

0489un_haevdyshampoo_400

I started looking into it because my hair is a little thin from being bullied into being blonde and bleached so often. Plus, my hair has always been quite thin and I wanted to try and beef it up a little. This Herbalife set was recommended by several bloggers and youtubers so naturally I thought why not give it a shot myself. I’ve been using it now for about over a month and I’ll be very honest, it’s pretty mediocre at best. Does it help prevent excessive hair loss? I’m not so sure… my hair is a little bit fuller than it was but not by a significant amount that is noticeable by touch or just looking at it. Also it’s not so great in the detangling department either and it’s not very moisturising unlike the Redken ones I was using prior to changing to the Herbalife set. Another drawback is its availability and price. Unlike other brands, which you can find and buy quite easily online or from a store, the Herbalife ones are only available online from third party distributors and it’s quite expensive. The price for one bottle is about $25 ~ $35 AUD including shipping fees. There are some websites that sell it as a bundle but it still falls within the $30 ~ $50 ballpark. Although it’s not significantly more expensive than what I’ve paid in the past, it just doesn’t quite deliver amazing results. Whereas Redken on the other hand, is expensive but always leaves my hair feeling and looking fantastic. I’m going to use it for a little to see how it goes, but as a suggestion I recommend using a very moisturising hair treatment with it or a detangling spray.

On other note, I went on a mini shopping expedition today and bought two pairs of the cutest pyjama bottoms ^^

IMG_1766The pink one is from Peter Alexander and the blue paisley one is from Cotton On Body. My boyfriend bought them for me so I’d stop stealing his lol They are both super comfy and surprisingly cost about the same as each other.

Okay well that’s all for now

Until next time… <3

Hello! Finally found some time to throw up a quick review about a BB cream by Skin79. It’s called the Chiffon BB Mousse and it comes in a little can like so…

Skin79Now I swear by Skin79’s Hot Pink BB Cream and I use it on a very regular basis. So when I saw they had a mousse version I thought, hey that might be awesome. Another reason I thought to give it a go is because Dior has a similar product called DiorSkin AirFlash Spray foundation, which is basically foundation in an aerosol spray can, and it is awesome. The only drawback is that it costs roughly $85 and thus, is not very wallet friendly. However, the Chiffon BB Mousse is not at all the same. First of all, from just one pump you get this…

Skin79test2Just from looking at it would appear to be more than enough and that’s what I thought until I put it on my face. Unlike the normal BB Cream, the Chiffon Mousse does not give as much coverage and that’s after I used that entire giant blob. On the plus side though, it stays on very well. I wore it for a whole day and other than around my nose it was still all there. So I guess you win some you lose some. It’s not the best product out there, but I’ve come across worse. If you have low maintenance skin then it should be fine. Just be careful when pushing down on the pump.

Anyhoos, that’s all for now (:

Hello all, forgive the lack of original posts lately. I have been a little swamped with uni and other life matters recently and unfortunately the drought will continue for a while longer. Hopefully once things clear up I shall return with more things to blog about :)

IMG_1447New Years Eve Dress from Estina

Hello! Apologies for the long silence, got caught up with the whole Christmas, New Year and family thing. But now that I’ve had sometime to settle I thought I’d make a quick update.

So the biggest news is that there are two new family members.

Say hello to Muffins and Puddles!

Muffin-and-PuddlesMuffin-and-Puddles2 Arn’t they just the cutest things? : D Muffin is the Brown one and Puddles is the White Butterfly one. I think they’re Dwarf x Mini Lops, not entirely sure but that’s what they told us. Besides, who cares? They’re still undeniably adorable!

In other less exciting news, I bought a dress during the Boxing Day sales in hopes to wear it on New Years, but there was a change of plans so I ended up picking something a little more casual.

White-DressWhite-Dress-jewelsHopefully I’ll get another chance to wear it out soon, it’s much too beautiful to leave collecting dust in my cupboard.
Well that’s all I have for now, I’ll wrap up with a few more photos of my bunnies ^^

And that’s all, until next time… <3
