10 Fantastic Beauty Gifts For Mother’s Day

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2013

There are 2 more weeks till Mother’s Day in Australia!  If you’re a Mummy, it’s time to drop some heavy hints to your partner and kid(s) and if you’re not one (yet), don’t forget to treat your Mummy – she deserves it!

To be honest, my Mum isn’t a beauty lover…and neither is my Mother-in-Law!!  Must be that generation 😛  So if I bought any of the following gifts for them, they’d go WTF?  Okay, maybe not WTF? since they don’t use that terminology either 😛  Instead, I am pretending what my future kiddies would have bought me if they jumped into a time travel machine – think Back To The Future meets Terminator.  Confused?  Yes, that was 2 of the movies I grew up watching in my generation 😛


May I Be Excused?

Karen Walker Bunny sunglasses

Currently suffering from MAJOR work-related stress.  Wish I could rant it out but I can’t.  Stressing only gives you wrinkles so I need to stop that ASAP!  But meanwhile, may I be excused?  Will definitely try and get my blogging mojo back soon.  Le sighs.

And if you’re wondering… I’m wearing Revlon Photoready BB Cream (love) topped with L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Powder (so in love!!!) with L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Blush on cheeks (ANOTHER love!) and Sisley L33 Rouge Passion Hydrating Lipstick whilst testing out the Karen Walker Bunny sunnies I won as part of being a Clinique It Girl.  I’m not sure if I like the Bunny sunglasses or not…  You can call me an ungrateful bi-atch, but look at me – the sunglasses are very Gaga-ish and enhances the fact that I have a flat Asian nozzle with no nose bridge.  Gah!!!

Anyway, please send me happy, positive vibes whilst I am in wrinkle-inducing stress mode!  Thanks!  Love y’all  xxx

P.S.  Will cheer myself up later today with a trip to Priceline who are currently doing 40% off cosmetics – woop woop!!!  AND is doing 20% off too!!  Promo code TWOUP!  You’re welcome 🙂

{Review & Giveaway} Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum

review of Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum, Elizabeth Arden Prevage serum, review of Elizabeth Arden serum

When I speak to my non-beauty blogging friends around my age (late twenties / early thirties) about skincare, they always look at me as if I am crazy for using anti-aging skincare products.  They think I am “too young” – like hello?  I’ve been using anti-aging products since my early twenties!  How else can I get away with looking like I’m younger than my actual age?!!  Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is one the newest anti-aging power packed serums to hit the beauty market.  I was given the privilege to trial this for review and better still, there’s one to giveaway to one lucky Aussie reader (more on that later).


Tried & Tested Trio : Hair Oils

Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment, L'Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil & L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil

As you all know, I work full-time in a medical-related field where blood, guts and saliva get thrown in the air and being a hygienic freak, I HAVE to scrub my body after work PLUS wash my hair.  Every.  Single.  Day.  That, in hair speak, means that I strip my hair of its natural oils and as a result, I dowse my hair every day in hair oils in an attempt to nourish it.  Here are 3 hair oils I have tried and tested.  Check it out y’all…
