My Planner For 2016

I started watching planner videos for the past few months and considering now that I am out of high school and I no longer have a good quality planner that my school use to provide me, I needed to shop for a new one. I was very interested in the Erin Condern Life Planner and I was willing to fork out the $50 for the planner (and what shipping was added on), and even buy little stickers on Etsy. But recently I found this filofax/kikki.k (don't know what its properly called) type planner at Kmart for $12!

Why I didn't give anyone a present this Christmas...


This year Christmas has been extremely underwhelming. Maybe it is a mixture of the fact that I am the youngest in my family and I am almost 18, that my family has never really been festive, or I work at Kmart which is EXTREMELY busy this time of year and I am turned off. All this has caused me to not care at all about Christmas, and it's gift giving that comes along with it. I have not bought a single present for anyone (I am not counting the book I have ordered for my sister as it is a thank you gift for her giving me her old phone). 

REVIEW: Madam Glam Fabulous Gel Polish Kit*


I was contacted by a representative of Madam Glam for me to try out their products. They are mostly known for nail polishes, both normal and gel (even temperature changing nail polish!) but they also have makeup. All makeup and nail polishes are cruelty-free and vegan besides their lipsticks which contain beeswax. I am not really a nail person at all, mostly because I couldn't wear it majority of the year due to school. But now that I am out, I am free! And able to do whatever I want.

KMART WANTS #1



I've been working at Kmart since I was 15 and I see so many products come through and our game has seriously lifted every season. Working at Customer Service I feel I need to know the popular products so I can help customers more efficiently I follow heaps of Kmart instagram pages to discover new items so I am aware of whats up (also because I love new things). I really have to stop myself from buying products I do not need but if I could, I would buy all these products.

REVIEW: Bondi Sands - Self Tanning Foam in Light to Medium & Tanning Mitt

& Self Tanning Mitt - $9.99AUD

I prepared this post quite a while ago and haven't gotten around to posting it because I never got good shots of before and after. I have fake tanned a few times and the process is extremely easy, pretty much fool proof. 

SCHOOLIES 2015


Enjoy my very low quality, short as vlog from schoolies. I don't know if I will keep this up as I literally hate the quality and the final turn out of it, but oh wells. Enjoy it while this lasts

REVIEW: Chi Chi Eyebrow Pomade


When I found out about this product being released I was so keen. I like Chi Chi's brow pencil but it was beeswax it in so I am no longer buying it, but since this is also vegan friendly I was so happy and purchased it from Target for RRP $14.95. It is an apparent dupe for the Anatasia Beverley Hills Brow Pomade, I have never used that product myself but if you are after any reviews that compare the two here is one I really like.  

BOOHOO HAUL #4


Literally have become obsessed. Cotton On isn't providing the goods as of late and Boohoo is my new favourite.

TV SHOWS I RECOMMEND #3 (DC Comics Edition)


My obsession with superhero (mostly DC) based has grown in the past few months. When I was meant to be studying I was bulk watching Arrow and The Flash and got into Supergirl soon after it came out. I will do another version of this as I have another one or two shows I want to recommend. 

TV SHOWS I RECOMMEND #2


I am giving you guys another post of TV shows I recommend. For some reason I watch quite a few shows and I am in the middle of year 12. (scheduled post) Oh well, If you enjoy these posts let me know and I will keep making them!

REVIEW: Waxaway - Aquawax Roll-on Kit

Waxaway is a great CF Australian brand - pretty much the only wax I know at the moment which is cruelty-free. I am more of a shaving person, purely because I am not fussed with shaving a lot as it is really quick.


CRUELTY-FREE BRANDS TO BUY AT PRICELINE'S 40% OFF COSMETICS SALE


The Priceline 40% that happens a few times a year is back. You are able to by online and instore. I definitely suggest going the first day as the good products are wiped out by the second day. Most of these brands have vegan items, you can find them by looking for ingredients in the ingredients tab.

  • Australis 
  • Models Prefer
  • Nude by Nature
  • Face of Australia
  • Physician's Formula
  • Natio
  • Innoxa
  • Savvy
If there is more brands I am not aware of or have incorrectly mentioned, please contribute. 

BOOHOO HAUL #3

Another boohoo haul. I have a lot of bottoms but not enough tops.. So I bought a few. This is very colourless so enjoy if you are a basic girl.

BEST EBAY BUYS #2

Usually this brush retails on the Real Techniques website for $8USD. In Priceline in Australia - $17AUD. And how much did I pay for the exact same product on eBay? $2.42. Just do a quick wash before you use it and it's perfect, it even has the real techniques details on the handle. *The seller I bought this off does not sell it anymore, I found another seller linked above*

Nose Rings 
Probably not the best thing to buy online, especially eBay. I clean them before I wear them and I haven't had a reaction or anything. And 1 dollar! 

Cleansing Silicone Pad
I bought two when I first purchased these - one for my face and another to wash my brushes. And it does an amazing job at both and they are very easy to wash.



REVIEW: Irresistible Me Clip In Hair Extensions*


I have never ever used hair extensions before as I have always had long hair and never felt the need to (I know hair extensions also add volume). I was contacted by Irresistible Me and I thought it was a great opportunity to get into the hair extension world.

ARROW: Season 4 Premiere Reaction



*SPOILER ALERT AHEAD* 

I never thought I would do something like this. I have read the mamamia Bachelorette recaps and I feel it is funny but dedication. I have exams in three weeks, should I really start something like this? I do know, but I will see how it goes but after this episode, I need to vent.

THE ICONIC HAUL #1


The Iconic is one of those stores that has a bunch of different brands, caters for both men and women, and always has great sales items. I originally did this order to purchase the Layla Distressed Jeans but when they came in the mail they were too small for my hips and ass. *whoops*

BOOHOO HAUL #2


I buy too much clothes lately. I needed more skirts to wear to parties and stuff so I got a few cheap ones which I thought were really cute. 

REVIEW: Sukin - Micellar Water



Sukin is one of my favourite brands, they have great ethical standards and really attempt to cater for everyone. They have no parabens, no animal bi products, don't test on animals and so much more. They make my favourite face wash, so I had to try this micellar water considering I can't get the famous bioderma. 

REVIEW: Hair & Me - Hair Rejuvenation Treatment*


I am guilty of neglecting my hair. I use the usual shampoo and conditioner and put some Aldi Moroccan Argan Oil (read my review here). And that is pretty much it. I was contacted by Hair & Me to try their Hair Treatment and I decided my hair deserved some TLC. 

PINTEREST FINDS #1

Collection of some pins I have found which I like, find helpful and want to share.

iHERB HAUL #2

iherb, naturtint, elf, queen helene, beauty, haul, makeup

A year later I have made another iHerb Haul. I really try to not spend too much money on things I don't need but my formal is in June and I really needed some supplies. Unfortunately the US and AU dollar isn't the same at the moment so I paid more than I did last time, still some of this stuff is cheaper online than in stores here. If you'd like to use my iHerb Coupon code for your first order it is GBD144.
