Products I've used Up: October

Here are all the products I have used up this month, its a lengthy one though so grab some tea and a snack :)

LUSH Ocean Salt
I really enjoyed this face scrub. It smeeld amazing and left my skin really soft. There is only one down side, due to my dry skin type, it can leave the skin a little tingley/dry at times. That being said I did love it for a once or twice a week treatment. If you have oily skin and want something nice and scrubby for your face go out and take a sniff of this. It may eventually be repurchased but for now I have a billion other scrubs to get through. 

LUSH Cosmetic Warrior
I think I always have at least one face mask in these posts, merely because they are free. I think this is the last time I will get this those, because even with no cost it just annoys me far too much. I have a full review on a lust post I did a while back, but for now all I will say is I am getting rid of this with about 50% of the product still remaining.

Nutella Cookies

Recipe time! 

This was my first time ever making these cookies, but I decided to snap alone the way just in case they were delicious, and they were. 

It is a SUPER easy recipe, and although it is not healthy at all, tastes amazing. It doesn't make too many any way (maybe 15) so as long as you share with friends they wont do too much damage. 

Shopping List:
-2/3 of a tub of Nutella (or any rip off, like Nutino)
-1 egg
-1 cup of flour
-2 tables spoons of brown sugar

-Mixing Spoon
-Measuring Cups and Spoons

Mix ingredients together, roll into balls and bake at 200* Celsius for about 15 minutes, leave to cool, then eat! 

Wola! Delicious cookies for all!

Ten Dollar Challenge #1: Stick Concealer

Hello all!

This string of posts is because although ten dollars may not seem like a lot of money to some of you, when you are still in school, or generally don't like parting with money, ten dollars can be a lot. Plus whether you think it is a little or a lot you should always be getting your moneys worth, hence the invention of this serious.

For this first comparison I will review 3 stick concealers all of which I found for under $10AUD. Now these are obviously going to be completely different in quality to these you would pay $30+, but if you just want something that can cover up dark circles and few spots without looking like little orange splotches all over your face, $10 is fairly reasonable.

I wanted to try these out because I normally not a fan of stick concealers  always opting for cream or liquid types. The 'challenge' part is that I will give my best recommendation out of the 3 (or how ever many I try). Lets get on with the mini reviews!

Note: Sorry for the two super blurry photos! I was going to retake them when I started editing on my computer, but with such a busy schedule I decided there was no point. This is all about the review, not my crappy photos :)

I [heart] Spring Tag

Hello there!

I do love spring, so I have decided to do this tag, even if I am late off the mark. 

1. Favorite spring nail polish? Probably Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen, which is in  the hard as nails extreme wear collection. I do also love a good yellow or orange though.  


2. What is your must-have lip color this spring? I am pretty boring and wear the same colours all the time, but as I lost my favourite orange lipstick, I will probably repurchase and wear that one a lot.

Whats in My Handbag

Hello all!

Today's post is a whats in my handbag :)

I don'd think there is much I can say so enjoy the photos below:

Handbag Collection

Hello Blog people!

Today I am showing you my Handbag collection, as I am sure you got from the title. My 'everyday' handbag has recently become deceased, and in an effort to not buy a new one straight away, I have reorganized my stash. 

As with shoes I always tend to go for bright or loud patterned bags, which isnt always a good thing. I will probably repurchase a plain black/brown everyday bag while in Japan, but for now I cant justify spending money. 

Lets get on with it:

Jewelry Collection

Hi there blog people!

It seems to be the week of me showing a billion collections. 

Here is an array of jewelry from around my room.

Does anyone else spread their accessories everywhere? Or do you have one chest that you keep it all in. Let me know!

Shoe Collection

Hello Bloggerinos! 

Today I am showing you my shoe collection. I have gotten rid of a lot in the last year or so (maybe 8 pairs), but I have repurchased the same amount, if not more!
I am a shoe addict and I know it, but I promise all of these have been worn at least once! I have also owned some for many years now, and as you can tell not all of them were expensive. 

All my shoes are kept under my tv/bookshelf/desk area. The shoe racks were both purchased for me by my mother, many years ago now. I'm sure they were from Traget, Kmart or the likes. 

I will not write about all of the shoes but will just give a few snap shots, if you want to know the brand of any let me know :)

I know you are all thinking "ohhh ahhh look at that fancy editing yeahh." I took seriously blurry photos as I had to get down on my knees to get these. The solution: vintage effect!

Modcloth Haul

Hello All!

I have been wanting to shop at Modcloth for the longest time, and when 3 dressed I had been lusting over went on sale I decided the time was right. I think I have saved things to my cart for about 3 years now, and the feeling of finally purchasing some is great.

However I did purchase two dresses for my mum, hoping she could wear one of them to Christmas  and they were both fails. They looked okay but she wasn't fully happy with them, so I will keep you posted on how good they are with the return. 

Luckily for me my dresses fitted perfectly! I am normally pretty spot on when ordering fit and flare dresses, it is the bodycon style that is a bit hit and miss.

I order these on the 10th of December  and they arrived on the 16th, which is amazingly fast for international! I paid about $40 in shipping, but considering I was getting 5 items I thought that was okay. I think I would buy things almost weekly if Modcloth started doing free international shipping, so maybe its best that they don't.

Oops I shopped again, but I managed to escape with just 3 items this time. Phew!

Tag Time: I Love Fall

Hello lovely blog people!

I was tagged by The Brunette Kichenette to do this Tag. 

Although it is not Fall right now in Australia, I will be heading off to a colder climate in about 2 months so I guess I will be combined that with the things I was using back in Autumn.

Hope you guys enjoy!

1. Favorite fall lip product? The Rimmel by Kate Moss Lipstick in a rich deep purple, which is colour 04 

2. Favorite fall nail polish? Dark green! I love OPI's Dont Mess with OPI

3. Favorite fall drink? I do not really drink Starbucks, so I will say Soy Chai Lattes, with lots of cinchona on top!

4. Favorite fall dish?
 It was really cold yesterday in Melbourne and I have a yummy hot soup, but in Fall particularly I love pumpkin soup!

5. Favorite fall scarf or accessory My massive ASOS fringed snood! So warm and cuddly its like a blanket for your neck and face. 

6. What scares you the most?
 Everything haha! Probably people with axes or something stupid like that. 

7. Favorite Halloween movie? The Witches of Eastwick. 

8. What is your favorite fall make-up look? Dark lips with a soft brown smokey eye. 

9. Do you celebrate Halloween?! If yes, what are you dressing up for? If no, would you like to celebrate it?
 Australia does not really celebrate Halloween, so even when I was 16 and older my parents would not let me go trick or treating. I would love to celebrate it, and did have a Halloween themed 10th birthday party. 

10. What is your favorite thing about fall? Autumn leaves and cuddling up in the cold. 

That is all for now guys, talk soon xx

Tag Time Sunday: My First Time

Its Tag Time! 
I have only done one Tag so far so I though I would do a few more so you guys could get to know me :) So without further ado here is the My First Time Tag:

First Love: Andrew! 

First Kiss: Pretty sure it was at my local park, and was horrible ha. 
First Pet: A rabbit. 

First time you met your partner: At a friends 18th in 2010

First cd: I won a Vengaboys cd at a disco.... so cool.

First Concert: Greenday, with my best friend, brother and mum.

First impression of you bf: Oh wow that guy over there has a goon sack (cask of wine) lets go say hi and talk to his cute friends. 

First person you said I love you too: My best friend in about year 8 or 9 I think.

First big purchase: My car, which I got for cheap off my mum.  

First gadget: Probably my Hello Kitty alarm clock. It was in the shape of a teacup and super adorable!
First date: It was probably before this but I will say my first date with Andrew was too a Park near his house. The ranger had to come and kick us out because we stayed too late which was a bit awkward. 

First overseas holiday: To Fiji with my mum and dad. I was in year 12 I think.

Products I've Used Up: September

Hello lovelies!

Here are all the products I have used up this month, with mini reviews for each :)

Soap and Glory Flake Away
This scrub smells AMAZING, however I am just too clumsy for exfoliater in a tub. Ever since I discovered that LUSH does body exfoliating bars (ex. Aqua Mirablis), I have given up on tub scrubs. Half of this ended up down the drain as I am just not good at scooping it onto my body haha. This would be lovely as a gift, or to use in the bath, so I still think it is a great product. However I will not be repurchasing it.
