My Valentines Day ♥

Hello everyone ♥ 
So yesterday was Valentines Day here in Australia.
I had an amazing day with my boyfriend and i hope you all had an amazing day too. 
This year was our first year to spend valentines day together so we tried my best to make it one of the most memorable day.
Valentines Day is the day where we tend to show more love for our partner but i do think that it is important to show how significant that person means to us and show a lot of love everyday, not just valentines day :) 

Anyways, this year i decided to make home made chocolates which was quite easy to make. The decorating was very fun! 
I also gave my boyfriend a photo frame with a photo of us we took a while ago. 
My boyfriend gave me a plush gorilla toy a few months ago as a surprise so i decided to buy a cute bunny for him too. 
The reason why he bought me a Gorilla was because he reminds me of a gorilla and he tells me that if he had to choose a look a like animal for me, it would be a bunny xD


We first went to buy some food and ate at the park. 
Before we ate, we exchanged our presents. 
I am very thankful for what i got from him and you guys all probably think why he would buy me vitamins. It is because i have been sick and drowsy lately so he was very kind to buy me some vitamins :) 
I also got a mini couch wallet where i can put my cards inside which is going to be very useful! 


After we ate, we went to watch a movie which was called "The Interview". It was a very funny movie and we both liked it a lot! 
We went to a restaurant called Vapianos after that and ordered a pasta and pizza to share. We were both quite full after that but we came upon an ice cream store which was on a special deal where you get a free ice-cream if you kiss your partner so we thought, why not?!


Overall we both had a lovely memorable day and will try our best to stay together and be happy in every ups and downs :)

Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara - RESULTS.

Hey everyone :)

So a few days go, i did a haul with the Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara. 
This post will be on the results. 
I bought the non waterproof version.

So here are the results! 
To be honest, i expected more from this product since everyone was raving about it. This mascara DOES lengthen your lashes a lot but does not really volumes my lashes as much as i thought it would. 
I do think it depends on what type of eyelashes you have got because  i personally have lost a lot of lashes suddenly from some reason so it did not look AMAZING. 
For the people who has got a lot of eyelashes will look amazing with this product. 
I used to have long, thick and a lot of eyelashes but since my skin got sensitive, my eyelashes got sensitive too :( 
Overall, i do love this product but i am not a big fan of it. 
I do recommend this product for those who have those thick long lashes. 
I'll give this product a 7/10 :)

Hi everyone :)
I haven't been updating for a while since i have been sick for the past few days.. but i have been recovering which is a good sign! 

So a few days ago i went shopping at priceline and at the body shop and picked some products that i wanted to try. 
Some of the products i have already tried and LOVE so i had to go and buy some more. The things i bought are the the tree toner from the body shop, St ives apricot face scrub, Paw Paw balm and the Neutrogena hydro boost night concentrate cream. 

The products i have already tried are the St Ives face scrub and the paw paw balm. These two products have been my favourite since i first bought them and have never stopped using them. The St Ives face scrub in Apricot is a very nice exfoliator to scrub off all those dead skins. I use them as a daily basis since they have improved my skin A LOT. It has Salicylic acid which helps to cure those acnes. I know its not good to use face scrubs in a daily basis but it has been my favourite! 

So this is the paw paw balm i have been loving. I use this as a lip treatment or i apply it onto my skin when it gets dry. There is also another paw paw brand but i just prefer this one simply because its pink! My mum also loves this product so i bought two of these:)
(made a typo, its Natures Care oops haha)

So this is my first time ever buying a moisturiser from Neutrogena. 
To be honest.. i don't really like using moisturisers because every time i do use one, my skin usually breaks out since i have combination skin. However, this product did not break me out and feels very nice on the skin. It has these blue particles inside which dissolves as you apply it onto your face. This moisturiser is recommended for dry and oily skin. I do have sensitive skin as well and did not break out at all!

The last product for today is the body shops tea tree skin clearing toner. I personally love any tea tree products since they work well on my skin and for my acne. I also heard that tea tree works well on acne because it dries up the pimple and helps it cure faster. 
This toner is now one of my favourites since the smell isn't that strong and feels very refreshing on the skin! 
Do recommend this product for those who has been having skin problems lately but not for a daily basis since it feels a bit too strong to use it everyday (for sensitive skin like me).

Real Techniques Brushes & Maybelline The Falsies Mascara.

Hi everyone :)
So today i received two things in the mail. 
I received the Real Techniques brushes from Iherb and the Maybelline the falsies mascara from Ebay. 
These products were one of my wish lists for this year so i ordered them online and only took around 3 days to arrive. 
Iherb is the cheapest online site i could find that sells these Real Techniques brushes and it was also fast shipping for an international site. 

From Iherb i ordered the Real Techniques Blush Brush, Shading Brush, Expert Face Brush and the Core collection brushes. 
I ordered these since they are very popular and i heard these brushes are the best brushes so far even compared to the high brand makeup brushes. I have not tried them out yet but they certainly are very soft and feels nice on the skin :)

I bought a simple flower pot from Daiso for just $2.80 and decided to use it as a brush holder. In the second photo you can see how dense these brushes are and they look so fluffy! 

So here is my new mascara!
I heard this mascara is one of the best mascara for volume and length so i decided to order this on Ebay for just $11. 
When buying this at a drug store it usually costs around $16-$20. 
I have not tried this out yet but i am excited to see the results!

Hello everyone :) 
So this post is going to be a cosmetic / Target haul. 
I did not buy a lot but i have tried them all and they are definitely my favourites. 

So firstly i went to a beauty cosmetic store and got a nail polish and some lipsticks. 

This lipstick is one of my all time favourite and this time i got it in the colour SUNSET ANGORA. It is a very pretty pink lipstick which is a very nice for everyday use. It is definitely moisturising and stains on your lips so you wouldn't have to keep reapplying. 
Thank you to my boyfriend for buying me this! :) <3

I also stopped at the ULTRA 3 cosmetic section wondering if they are any good. I have not heard much reviews about this brand but i thought i would give it a try. 
This brand is one of my favourite brand now. It is a very cheap brand but also with good quality. 
The nail polish is very glossy, dries fast and only needs two coats to get that finish look. 
The lipstick crayon is in the colour pretty peach and it sure is a very pretty peachy colour on the lips! 

I also went to the newly renovated Target and bought these cute jelly beans. They had all kinds of different flavours but i picked my two favourites which is the Mango and Strawberry Cheesecake flavour. These taste very nice and i will definitely bring these to uni to snack on. 

This was a very small haul but are my new favourites! 
Do recommend them all to everyone :)

My current wish list ♥

Hi everyone :) 

This post will be on my current wish list. 
After watching some youtube videos recently, iv come up with some of  beauty products that id want to share.

So here they are!
I'v heard that these products are very popular and one of the best beauty products. 
The last item on my wish list is a TP-LINK power bank. 
For those who aren't sure what power banks are, these are portable chargers for your mobile phones. So.. for the people like me who have their phones in their hands 24/7, most likely their phones will run out of battery really fast but by having one of these portable charges will save your life! xD

I have been searching for these products online and iv discovered that EBAY is the best online shopping site. EBAY is rather cheap compared to the other high class beauty online stores so i definitely reccomend buying through EBAY. 
I was first not too sure if i can trust EBAY but from my experiences, i have never experienced any difficulties communicating with the seller or any shipping problems.

In Australia, it is really hard to find these products and I'm actually not sure if they sell any of the brands above (except l'oreal)so i am planning to buy these products off EBAY and i will do a haul and a review when i receive them. If any of you have tried any of these products, let me know in the comments below if they are any good!

My new favourite drink!

Hi everyone :) 

This post will be about my new favourite drink that I'm sure most of you will love as much as i do. 
I have been literally OBSESSED with this drink and love to share with you all. 
This drink is very easy to make and only takes a few minutes. 

The ingredients are..
- Chia Seeds
- Black Tea bags 
- Lemon juice 
- Honey 
- A kettle to boil your water
- A spoon
- A cup of your choice :) 
mine is from Kmart for only $2! 

The Steps..
1. Boil some water with a kettle. After the water is boiled, leave it for 10-15 minutes so it won't be too hot when you drink it. 
2. In a cup of your choice, pour in the boil water and put in a tea bag and leave it in and stir for about a minute. 
3. Take out the tea bag and put in some lemon juice and honey. 
4. Stir until the honey is dissolved. 
5. Put in some Chia Seeds and stir until most of the chia seeds have sank to the bottom and now you're ready to drink :) 

Chia Seeds are my favourite but they're also very healthy for your body! 
Chia Seeds contains a lot of fiber, protein, calcium and Omega 3s. They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Potassium, Vitamin 1, Vitamin B2 and B3. 

I usually drink this every morning and i believe that this will help for those who wants to get in to a diet since they fill me up a lot! 
I really recommend this drink to boost up your healthy needs :)
