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 ūüôā

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!

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…
