I promised yesterday that I wouldn’t have Tuesday-itis today so I’m updating with another Beauty Bites post.  If you recall, Beauty Bites is a new series on the blog which contains short and sweet morsels of the beauty bubble I live in.

threaded brows

play. the brow bar :  I was invited to get my eyebrows tinted and threaded at this new-ish brow bar in South Yarra, just round the corner from the Thai massage place where the lady fondled my boobs (read the full story here)!  Anyway, it was really good to get my brows threaded again (I used them get them done fortnightly in Scotland) as I adore the clean finish it gives.  Don’t my brows look fantastic in the After pic?

MISS FOX 1st Birthday Party :  Norlin from Baubles, Bubbles & Bags kindly invited me as her plus one to a party at MISS FOX, this super glam salon in Melbourne city.  It was a school night but I happily downed some yummy cocktails (I love Pimms) and ate a Phat Brat (a fat sausage in a plump roll) as elegantly as I could.  I had NOTHING to wear so I threw on the blue ASOS dress I bought recently.  In the bottom right photo (credit to TheTrendSpotter.net), my foundation looks GHASTLY!   Note to self : Never test a new foundation at a party function!

Snail Mail From My BFF :  It’s been nearly THREE years since I left Scotland and finally, I got some snail mail from my BFF!  And not just snail mail, but a love package filled with presents galore.  Thanks babe!

Melbourne beauty bloggers, Melbourne bloggers meet-up

Melbourne Bloggers Meet-Ups :  I think there’s an urban legend (which I created right now!) that says that bloggers meet up to sit round in a circle, hold hands and talk about blogging and pray to the blogging gods.  FALSE FALSE FALSE!  We meet up to eat, chat, giggle and eat, chat, giggle!

The girls in the first photo are all 10+ years younger than me!  DAMN MY OLD AGE!  But they are all so adorable and cute…and I relive my youth through them.  This was our 2nd meet-up and we feasted on Korean BBQ – so so so yummy!  From left to right is Alice (http://www.followafteralice.blogspot.com.au), Khatsii (www.khatsii.com), Julie (www.julies-little-world.com) and Kimu (http://www.xxshinrai.blogspot.com.au).

And in the second photo are some lovely ladies around my age.  I did a tweet-out to see if any Melbourne (beauty or non-beauty) bloggers wanted to meet up and FIVE tweeps responded – YAY!  And due to some unforeseen circumstances, three couldn’t make it (I am sure we will have another meet-up) but I had the pleasure of meeting Ling – AWESOME NAME BTW! – (http://www.porkchopsnest.blogspot.com.au) and Vita (http://www.makeup4myage.blogspot.com.au) – and we got on like a house on fire.  Or at least, I thought so 😛

Australian BlogStar Best Beauty Vlog Award :  WOW!  Such an honour to win Best Beauty Vlog award for my alter ego, Lip Stalker.  Thanks for all those who voted for me.  And now, I have to make 12 videos…uh-oh!!!  Any ideas on what you would like to watch?

Anyway, this week is a crazy busy week so I hope I can keep posting regular updates.  If not, don’t forget you can catch me over on Twitter and Instagram – @xyling.  And if you’re a Melbourne blogger or a blog reader out there who wants to meet up, give me a holler on email.  No murderers nor stalkers need apply.  😛

    A coffee date is a must soon, I can’t believe in a few short months it will have been a full year since I last saw you and I am practically your neighbor now 🙂
