This is the last post from me this year.  I’ll be back in 2015 with new posts and a few exciting giveaways so don’t miss out :)

Due to recent tragic events around the world (Sydney siege and Peshawar attack – I don’t know how to properly articulate my feelings about these heartbreaking tragedies so I won’t) , I’ve decided to take my Christmas beauty blog break early and treasure every possible moment with my family (Mum, Dad and sister) who are visiting from overseas right now.  They came to celebrate Bunty’s first birthday with us!

I want to wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Peace out,

Review : Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

I liken Lush stores to Marmite (hey, I’m a British ex-pat but for Aussies sake, Vegemite) – you either love it or hate it.  And for the record, I don’t like Marmite nor Vegemite…and I also don’t like Lush stores because of the intoxicating headache-inducing scent you get from just being in a 5km radius of a Lush store.  So why am I reviewing a Lush product today?

Well, many moons ago { over a year actually *gulps* }, I got sent a Lush package…it also had a strong scent…and I avoided opening it for a while.  But when I did, I was pleasantly surprised to find a few products that actually smelt AMAZING and worked a treat.  And here is one of my favourite Lush products – Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub.


Fantastic Four // Link Love


1 – One of my favourite bloggers, The Freckled Fox, announced that she is expecting her 5th baby.  That’s FIVE babies in FIVE years!!!  Total admiration right there!  { link }

2 – Great homemade Christmas gift idea – DIY Fizzy Bath Bombs! { link }

3 – Contouring noobs need to read these simple tips { link }

4 – Yep, I cooked this big hunk of beef and I’m having a $50 dish’d voucher giveaway over on my lifestyle blog { link }

Calling All Insomniacs – Check Out This Works!

this works products for insomniacs

Every vain person knows the importance of beauty sleep.  But if you’re a vain insomniac like me, then getting some shuteye is almost impossible!!

When I heard fellow insomniac @Legeeque raving about This Works sleep sprays, I knew I had to get my hands on them so I hopped straight over to their website and ordered this trio.

Note : These sleep sprays are NOT CHLOROFORM and won’t knock you out immediately but they have fantastic sleep-inducing benefits…


Review : Mary Kay Timewise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector

Mary Kay TimeWise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector

“You have grey hairs!” – declared my husband.  For him to notice, it is MAJOR!  Luckily for me and all the greying ladies out there, we have hair dye to combat this sign of ageing!

Another classic sign of ageing is wrinkles.  Unfortunately, wrinkles is not that easy to hide…

I am in my mid-thirties so wrinkles are a big concern for me.  A few months ago, I was offered Botox injections but I had to decline as I am still breastfeeding Bunty.

And then recently, I was offered Mary Kay TimeWise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector to trial and I immediately said YES PLEASE!  GET THEE TO MY WRINKLES STAT!
