Mini-Haul/Review!

Hey guys. Long time no see but I’m back!!! And hopefully I can get my blogging back on track but I’ve just gotten so bogged down with work and procrastinating but here’s a mini-haul/review from me!

NARS Lip-Gloss in “Sweet Revenge”

Image

I absolutely adore this lip gloss that I picked up the other day. I’m completely a lipstick girl because I hate that sticky feeling you get when you wear lipgloss but I don’t have that problem with NARS lip-glosses at all and this is just such a natural-looking flattering color. I love it!

JUST LOOK AT THAT COLOR!

NARS Blush in “Super Orgasm”

Image

I picked up this blush last month and I’ve been wearing it EVERY time I decide to wear makeup and I just adore it. It complements my skintone so well. Definitely my favorite blush ever!

 

Essie Nail Polish in…

Image

 

These are the first Essie nail polishes I’ve acquired but I can already say that I love them. They have really good formulation and they don’t streak! The brush size is just right. I love them!

“Not Just a Pretty Face”

I have this on right now and I’ll have to say I adore this color!

“Fiji”

“Mint Candy Apple”

So that is all for my haul. I hope you liked it.

Aveda Salon Experience

Hey guys!! I’m not dead. I’m so sorry about the hiatus but I just got really really busy with the pile of work that I had to do and I was just really tired all the time and I decided that I needed a time off from my everyday hobby of blogging. But I am back now with a post!!! Haha. So today, I finally went to get my bangs done at the Aveda Salon (Luc Espace at Chatswood Chase in Sydney) and here’s how I felt about it. 

Image

I walked in and was immediately impressed with the layout and decor of the salon. With the warm colors and the wood furnishing (and scent), I could definitely feel the signature natural sensory vibe that Aveda carries. Not to mention the service! I was immediately greeted by their signature tea, water and magazines. My stylist, Lisa, came up to me with in a few seconds and we talked about how I wanted my hair, and immediately she understood. I was definitely impressed by how she then stepped me through the steps of cutting my hair (exactly how much she would take off and where and walked me through how she’d cut my bangs).

Image

I was then directed my a young man to the basins. Along the way he asked if I’d like a neck and shoulder massage, complimentary with every visit, and of course I said yes. He asked me to take 3 deep breaths, smelling in the natural essence he was holding and close my eyes. I’d definitely say that it was a relaxing experience. He then did his little massage and off we went with the hair wash. Of course, he only used Aveda products which I was really happy about because I know their mantras and mottos and I was delighted to try their products (amazing, my hair feels so soft and smooth). The only thing I hate about salons sometimes is the amount of products with harmful chemicals in them that they use, products that I would never ever use myself because of my love for natural products.

Image

So, away from the basin we went, and he combed my hair. AND THANK THE LORD he knows how to comb hair. He didn’t rip out my whole head like every other salon I’ve been to did. And then we go to the haircut. She snipped away, reminding me first to uncross my legs to maintain balance in the haircut (something that hairdressers never did before but I was thankful and delighted that she did). And can I say, when I said an inch (ONE inch) she ACTUALLY just cut off ONE ince, no more!!! That seriously impressed me. But the thing that put the icing on the cake was that she waited til the end to cut my fringe, to make sure I hadn’t changed my mind.

This whole package I was thoroughly pleased with. I’m surprised, and delighted, to say that I can not think of ONE bad thing to say about my experience, which is definitely a first. However, I will tell you that although my fringe looks good, it feels hella strange.

Mr Dreamy, For Your Hands

Image

If you’re like me and you’re constantly wearing nail polish because it has become an addiction over the years, you will know how dry your nails get. 

If you’re in winter right now, you know how dry your skin gets.

 

Over the past 2-3 weeks, I’ve had the joy of trying out 2 of LUSH’s amazing products (Lemony Flutter and Tiny Hands) and here’s what I think in about 3 words: they are amazing.

Image

Lemony Flutter is like a moisturizing paste for your dry skin and you can use it anywhere, and I do. I use it as a foot cream, a nail/cuticle cream and a cream on my elbows and knees. I love the thick consistency and it smells quite nice.

Image

Tiny Hands is like a little non exfoliating body butter for your hands. It is just amazing. At first you put it on your hands and it feels like the “oil” doesn’t wash off but you go over to towel off the water and BOOM your hands feel amazing and the “oil” just soaks in immediately.

I mean, honestly, there is nothing worse than the feeling of dry skin and/or looking down to see dry nails and cuticles but these two products have been miraculous. I’ve been using then every single day. I love them both and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who’s battling with dry skin and even then, we always look after our body and our face, but we always forget about our hands!

 

That is all for today’s post. Tell me what you think of these products if you’ve ever used and what are your holy grail hand products.

See you tomorrow

It’s my first time here and I’m excited to start a new journey.

I’m always finding new places to blog and I love it.

I like to start afresh, and as a teenager, I’m still discovering myself so here is my journey. Here you will ride with me on new fashion adventures, my personal ups and downs, my travel desires, my ambitions…

I hope you have fun and that you see the beauty to be unveiled in this new blog.
