essie spring 2014 limited edition

Spring is here!  Spring is here?!  The weather in Melbourne has been crazy just like my recent mood swings.  One day it is full-on sunny, “slap sunscreen all over me STAT” and the next day it is raining cats and dogs and hailstones and frogs!  Okay, it didn’t really rain frogs!

Anyway, to celebrate Spring 2014, Essie have released a limited edition collection and you may remember seeing a few of them in a previous post, but here they all are in their awesome colourful glory today.

Review : Proactiv+ Deluxe Kit

Proactiv+, Proactiv+ Australia, best acne products

This post is brought to you by Fresh Flowers

I may not be a huge diehard fan of flowers, but when it comes to roses, it’s a different story.  I just love roses!  Pink, red, cream, yellow, peach – I like all the colours!  I had two wedding ceremonies (one in Melbourne and one in Scotland) and both times, my brief to the florists were “pink roses” and I love the interpretation of both rose bouquets.

I also had to crack open my brand spanking new Shu Uemura Face Powder Matte and use it BEFORE I took any photos for the blog!  Yikes!

What’s In My Domo Bag?

domo bag, domo kun, cute handbag

Last week, I turned my back for 30 seconds and somehow, Baby Bunty had crawled halfway across the living room, over to my furry Domo bag and emptied out its contents!  Yep, it seems she has inherited my trait of being a nosey parker!

Anyway, this post is for all you curious cats out there who love having a sticky beak into people’s handbags.  Here’s what is currently in my Domo bag…
