Products Not Worth The Hype #1


There are many products out there that you purchase as there is so much Hype around the Product. I am here to tell you what products I got and was disappointed with or what I expect more from. That is why I am starting this series, I have been wanting to start this series for a long time. I thought it would be better to do this on the blog because I get the time to slowly decided and not say it all at once.  So here we are the first post for this series.

There are two products that I am writing about they are both from Soap and Glory. Firstly Flake Away their scrub which I wanted so badly because of all the raves it got on YouTube. Don't get me wrong I think this smells amazing! However does it get rid of flaky skin like the name suggests no it doesn't. I feel like it is just an expensive luxurious lumpy body wash. I think there are so much better scrubs out there in the market

The Righteous Butter is also another moisturiser that I have seen in multiple YouTubers favourites videos. Once again I love the smell of this moisturiser but I don't think I think it is very moisturising. I found that when my skin was really dry it only made my skin turn red. I didn't find that it soaked into my skin at all and it just stayed on my skin for ages.

I however I do want to try more Soap and Glory products. This in no way will stop me from thinking highly of the brand.

Makeup Wipe Monday #12 Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes Dry andSensitive skin


I have recently been trying out the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes Dry and Sensitive skin thus it is the focus of today's post.

These makeup wipes have a strong fragrance, the smell isn't too unpleasant though. The wipes are reasonably thick but thinner than most of the higher priced supermarket brands. They are decently moist though which you would expect from Nivea. The wipes take off your makeup with one or two wipes, one is not enough and two is too much, no in between. I don't think I really noticed that it was particularly good for dry or sensitive skin likes it claims it is made for. I found it strange that there is a  fragrance when it is for sensitive skin as they don't really go together in my opinion.

The price of these wipes are higher than most found at a supermarket and not what I would call budget friendly, they are middle of the range.

Would I recommend these? Yes there is no reason not to. Will I repurchase these? Maybe if they were on sale.

Spotlight Sunday #16 Compeed Total Care Invisible

Hey all!

(Looking hot with it on my lips lol)

Today I am focusing on a random beauty related product the Compeed Total Care Invisible. This is made put on top of cold sores. It is literally like putting a sticker on your lip. The idea behind it is that with the sticker on, no air or bacteria can get to the cold sore so it will start to go away quicker. Also you can still apply makeup over the sticker so it can really go undetected, or at least not be completely noticeable.

In March I had a cold sore the day before my Graduation and I found that this made it go away practically over night. It made the cold sore barely visible for my graduations photos! I literally just put this on before I went to sleep, it was on all night and it made a lot of difference. They are barely noticeable so I even wore one to work a few times. Although if you plan on wearing it for a long time you have to be careful when you are eating or drinking to not move it.

The pack comes with a mirror so you can apply them anywhere and anytime. Although they can be slightly tricky to get on and sometimes my first try failed but then you just learn from what you did wrong and try again.

Would I recommend this? Yes. Will I repurchase it? Yes I will because nobody has time for cold sores!

Hey all

This was written on Good Friday but failed to upload from my phone! I am posting it today as it is still relevant.

Today's post was meant to be a flashback but I don't think I finished it in time and I am spending my day in rural Victoria so no time or opportunity to finish my post as I want to put links and stuff. 

Have a nice Good Friday and Easter everyone if you celebrate it. Good Friday is one of few days were I get to spend with my father's family, so it is one of my favourite days of the year. 

There is a Face Of The Day.
Bourjois primer 
Estée Lauder Double Wear 
Nars Orgasm
Essence Eye Liner 
Coastal Scents eyeshadows 
YSL Shocking mascara 
Collection concealer 

My hair was wet and plaited last night and I added sea salt spray along with some hair spray. 

My dress has an under bit sticking up awks!!

Flashback Friday #7

Hey all 

Today we are going back to last year 2013 to when I was on my skin treatment (read all about it here) and is on the day that I filmed The Rainbow Tag

Let's start with me skin! Wooooow my skin was so bad here! It amazes me when I look back at old pictures and I see how bad my skin was amazes me. I can't believe it took me so long to take a serious treatment but it also makes me annoyed at my doctors for not referring me to a dermatologist sooner, there is only so many times you can take the same medication for your skin and see no difference. I'm not saying my skin is perfect now but it is a hell of a lot better than it was.

Now on to the makeup I actually really like the makeup but I don't think that it's makeup that I would want to wear out in public as it is very superman inspired. The foundation looks horrible though. I have no idea what one I was using but it did not make my look any good with all the pimples that were underneath. I do really like this eyeliner though I think that is makes a nice bold eye and I enjoy using blue to bring out my eyes more.

Makeup Wipe Monday #11 Smart Skin Scented Cleansing Wipes


This Monday we are focusing on the Smart Skin Scented Cleansing Wipes which I think are solely available at Woolworths/ Safeway.  These wipes are reasonable cheap, they cost around $2 each and go on sale for $1 pretty often.

These used to be my favourite budget  friendly wipes before I found the Coles ones which I seem to talk about every week! They are cheap and you can tell this by the quality you get from the wipes. the wipe itself is pretty thin and not the most moist. It takes at least two wipes to take off all of your makeup. These wipes dry up pretty quickly so I suggest you keep these ones in a sandwich lock bag. There isn't much of a scent on these ones and all honesty I think the unscented ones smell worse.

Would I recommend this? Maybe. Will I repurchase? Most likely not.

(Luna likes helping me take pictures!)

Spotlight Sunday #15 Bourjois Flower Perfection Translucent Smoothing Primer

Hey Pretties!

While I was in China I purchased the Bourjois Flower Perfection Translucent Smoothing Primer, haul here. It was recommended to me by my lovely friend Brodie. This is a balmy primer that comes in a tiny tub that you use your fingers to apply to the face.

The Primer is really moisturising and works well at giving you a smooth base. When I was looking at the primer at the counter in China the girl put it on my hand and it made the little lines on hand seem to disappear, she spoke no English so I think that is what she was trying to tell me! I don't think it would work the same for wrinkles but I think for dehydrated skin it works wonders. I like to use this for special occasions because I don't want to waste it! I think it is a good staple to have in anyone's collection as it good at making the perfect base.

An issue I have with this Primer is the price! A little doesn't go a long way with this primer mainly because the tub it comes in is super small! I wish the tub was bigger! You can get the primer cheaper on Asos if you don't want to pay the silly price that Australian retailers charge! I don't use this primer everyday because I think it is too expensive for everyday!

Would I recommend this? Yes! Will I repurchase? Yes! I love it!

Sample Queen #4 Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Treatment

Hey all

If you watched my Priceline Hair Care Bag Haul Then you would know that I got the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Treatment in my bag. I was pretty unimpressed with receiving this product as I don't use Pantene on my hair as I heard it is full of nasties. However I used the treatment today because well why not use up some of my samples?

I actually really enjoyed this treatment you just simply put this through your hair after you have used your shampoo and conditioner. You leave it on for you guessed it three minutes then you wash it out. While washing it out of your hair it feels really nice and that feeling stays once your hair is dry. Your hair feels silky and smooth after using this treatment, which really did impress me.

Would I recommend this treatment? Yes if you are short on time to do hair masks I think it is a great option. Would I repurchase it? Maybe I am not decided whether I would repurchase something from Pantene, I would consider every once in a while though. I don't think I would use it on a regularly as I adore using coconut oil.

Makeup Storage #1 Lipstick

Hey all!

I recently got a new set of draws from Ikea and I will be sharing this with you in a video soon but for now little by little as the draws are a complete mess. So today we are talking about my new lipstick holders. I got mine from eBay, I seriously should be banned! Here is my seller, I have used them twice once last year, one was broken and they replaced it straight away for free so I do recommend them.

(Sorry for the poor quality photo!)

I currently have 37 lipsticks which is crazy! Most of them are Revlon as I got given a cube (9 lipsticks) and eBay got me in bulk deal for 6 of the Moon Drop ones, plus some Lip butters! Then my other container is full of a mixture of brands ranging from high end to 'drug store'.

I just really like the way these look in my draws. It is easy to see the brand and the colour. It frees up room in my draws so that I can organise the draw with other makeup items. I really think that having my lipsticks arranged like this will help me use all of my lipsticks instead of just favouring the one colour.

Makeup Wipe Monday #10 Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Cleansing Wipes

Hey you!

It's Monday and you know what that means Makeup Wipe Monday post! Today we are focusing on the Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Cleansing Wipes.  I have done a post on the original makeup wipes. The originals ones are very hyped about on Youtube and the blogging world, So when I saw these on sale I thought I would snatch them up. The Simple range is actually on sale this week at Coles for two more days. (ends Tuesday 11:59pm).

I enjoyed the wipes overall there are a good consistency and reasonably moist. The wipes take off all of your makeup in the one go. The wipes are also really gentle on skin and don't leave them feeling tight or looking red! There is nothing that I can say with these wipes.

I however do not find these different to the original wipes and I am not sure what actually makes them age resisting! I don't see how a makeup wipe can prevent aging in all honesty. I got these because I do like the original wipes and thought I would try a different version of the same wipes.

Would I recommend them? Yes. Would I repurchase them? I would suggest going for the original or go for my favourites Coles ones.

Spotlight Sunday #14 Kit Gel Nail Polish Set


If you watched my recent favourites than you would know that I got a gel nail polish kit for Christmas from my sister. Mine is from Kit Cosmetics and I purchased the extra nail polished from Mecca. You can find it here, here or here. Each nail polish is $15 which is the same price as their ordinary nail polishes. The  machine itself is $69.95, which cheaper than some of the ones available at Priceline.

The machine is a single nail one which you can twist around to use on your toenails. The light can go on for 10, 20 or 30 seconds. I use the 30 seconds setting and the nail polish is completely dry after the 30 seconds. The machine uses a USB port for power, so computer or phone charger to make it work. It also comes with a nail polish remover, foil and cotton to be able to remove the gel polish when you want it removed.

The process of using the kit is extremely fast and mess free. I love it as it means no wrecked nails because your nails are wet. One coat is only needed for full colour from the polishes also, however to make it last longer I would recommend putting on two coats. The last power is pretty good with gel nail polish also. My finger nails lasted a few days, only short as being a check out chick kind of chips your nails. My toenails have been on for a couple of weeks and no chips.

Would I recommend this gel polish set? Yes I would highly recommend this one in particular, although I think any gel polish kit should be a staple in any girls collection.

Shamless Selfies #2 Graduation Edition

Hi all!

So if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I recently graduated from university. It was an amazing day that I spent with my family and my wonderful boyfriend. The only down side to the day was that The dean said my name wrong! Was so shattered as I had gone to the effort of breaking up my name to make it easier to say.

I filmed a Get Ready With Me video but I don't think it worked. So unfortunately there is no video of me getting ready so all these pictures will be all that I can share.  I included the little snapchat that all my friends received because you are my friends too
