iHerb Beauty Haul!

Hi! How are you guys doing today? I hope you are well :)

I decided to make a purchase off iHerb last week because I received a voucher to use and I thought why not take advantage of it since I wanted a few items already. 

I have purchased from them in the past, although it was over a year ago. I have had no issues with iHerb whatsoever. They are a fantastic company! With great prices which are fairly reasonable considering I live in Australia and everything is so expensive. 

Recently they started showing products in AU pricing. Which is great! Also the shipping is really affordable. It's only around $4 for standard international shipping and $8 for express. 

You can purchase make-up, brushes, skincare, hair care, vitamins etc. They sell a variety of products, for a good price. 

Now onto the haul! I purchased quite a few brushes since they retail for over double the amount here in Australia.

May Favourites

Hey it's that time of the month for favourites! I thought since I haven't done a favourites post, lets do on this month. I can't believe it's already May! Where has this year gone? I swear... it's almost halfway through the year and then by the time you know it, it will be Christmas again!

Our weekend away in Sydney!

My boyfriend and I of almost 2 and half years stayed in Sydney city the weekend of 13th April - 15th April. It was his early birthday present and pretty much just an excuse for a getaway.

We stayed at Mantra on Kent and it was a very good hotel. The staff were lovely and the hotel room was better than expected. We didn't want to spend over $200 a night for accommodation, so instead we comprised and said that we'd stay at a 4 star hotel and spend more money on food and shopping.

On Sunday I forgot to take photos of what I ate. But we had Yum Cha at East Ocean Restaurant in China Town. It was very nice. I loved the food there.

Monday morning for breakfast we walked to a place called Project 8 Cafe near Broadway. I ordered a pot of English Breakfast tea and it was only $4 and we got about 4 cups out of it? What a bargain! I also got a ham and cheese croissant and a brownie. It was such a nice looking cafe. The food was lovely as well.

April Empties

Hey guys, yay it's time for monthly empties! I didn't expect to have many products this month because I've already thrown out heaps without the intention of doing an empties post. My apologies, I'll make up for it next month.

This month I had hair care, make up and skin care. But after I gathered all the products together I noticed I had more skin products more than anything. Perhaps it's because I bought them all at the same time.

Review & Swatches - NYX Butter Gloss and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

Hey everyone! This post is dedicated to NYX products. I will be doing both a review and swatches for each product.

The NYX Butter Gloss

In my opinion the NYX Butter Gloss is the best lip gloss in the market. Not only for the quality but also for the affordability! It retails in Australian Targets for $9.99 but you can buy them online for only $5 if you buy in bulk.

When applied they go on glossy and evenly. It comes with your standard, wand to apply the gloss. They smell like vanilla sort lollies. I don't know how to describe it but it makes it want to eat it! They have a very pleasant smell if you ask me.


Left to Right: Strawberry Parfait, Peaches and Cream, Maple Blondie.

It's called the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge.

Candelicious Creations Soy Wax Candles

Hey guys! Don't you just love candles? I know I do. I'm pretty much a collector/hoarder when it comes to candles. I have way too many and still buy more. (Bad habit, I know.) But in this post I introduce to you natural candles. Which are handmade and produced in Australia! For a reasonable price and great value. Not only that, but they smell great too! What a bonus.

Two of my lovely friends (Abbie and Rachel) have started a candle business, since October 2013. They make soy wax and bees wax candles. There are a lot of different scents and ranges of candles they produce.
Such as Cafe, Candy Shop, Clean Waters, Common Scents, Oriental, Pretty Posies, Summer Lovin' and Special Edition candles.

This is what they say about their candles.

 "We endeavour to create hand made, quality candles that are beautifully scented from natural waxes free of toxins.

 We choose to craft our candles from Bees Wax & Soy Wax as they are naturally occurring products and do not contain harmful petrochemicals like those found in paraffin wax. Our waxes are not chemically treated post production.

 In addition to this, our waxes are produced from sustainable, renewable resources. Our bees wax is Australian produced & our soy wax is cultivated from American plantations. We do not use Genetically Modified materials."

Review - Katy Perry Killer Queen Oh So Sheer Perfume

This is my first ever review! How exciting. 

I adore Katy Perry perfumes. I own Purr and Meow. So I could not wait to try this one! Apparently this is limited edition, so I would get my hands on one as soon as you can.


Katy Perry's second Killer Queen perfume was released a couple months ago. I only recently had a chance to get my hands on it. I've been keeping an eye on it in stores and waiting for a good sale. I managed to get it for AU $49.99 from Priceline in the size 100ml. Which isn't a massive saving but every little bit helps.

March Wishlist

Hey everyone! This my first post. It's a new year, a fresh start. So why not start off with a wishlist! I always love reading other people's wishlists for the month. I want to try to get into blogging frequently but we'll see. I don't want to make promises that I can't keep.

Here's my current wishlist for the month.
