The result of recent workout

20 Oct

I’ve been working out quite a bit recently. Lots of stretching, cardio and lunging. Well maybe not me, but my debit card. Hey, at least one of us are getting some exercise right? (Yes, I refer to my card as a person…so what?) So what muscles have I amassed?

Model Co Eye Shade Trio in #05 Island Fever, $39

Model Co Satin Lip Couture Lipstick in Coral, $28

Model Co Gel Eyeliner with built in brush, $32

Bloom Limited Edition cosmetics purse, $9.95

Laura Mercier Moisturising Foundation in Sunny Beige, $80

Yes, I did go a little nuts at Model Co but only because their products are amazing, very reasonably priced and there was a gift with purchase. Win!

I also bought three really pretty rings from Sportsgirl and a lace cream skirt from General Pants and Co. which was reduced down from $80 to $40 with an extra 20% off so $32. Double Win! The skirt looks just like the one Alexa Chung was wearing to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party.

Hey Alexa! I'd like my skirt back thanks.

How awesome are they?! Ps, my nail polish is Tart Deco by Essie.

Is there anything here you’d like me to review or do a separate post on? Any questions? Anyone want to deliver me some salted caramel macarons?


Lip Smackers for Adults!!

10 Oct

No, I’m kidding. I wish though. I remember my first ever lip balm being an orange lip smacker and I was absolutely obsessed with it. I carried it everywhere with me. In my little purple purse, in my art smock at kindergarten and even in my frilly white sock at my uncles wedding where I subsequently squashed it all over my face in my haste to “look pretty like the bride”. I then cried because there was nothing left to wind up.

Anyway, I have now found something that reminds me of my beloved lip smackers! But the grown up version. Let me introduce you to my soon to be bff: Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm SPF 10 by Max Factor.


Smackers older, cooler aunty who sips apple martini's.


They come in 8 shades of Sugared Pearl, Coral, Red Garnet, Purple Orchid, Pink Oyster Shell, Pink Opal and the two above Amber and Rose Quartz.

These little babies are absolutely perfect for summer and lazing around on the beach. Sheer enough to wear poolside or beachside without looking OTT yet pigmented enough for a little fun in the sun. With a lanolin base containing mango and shea butter, they are not only deeply moisturising but smell yummy too! (Don’t taste too good though, I tried. I mean I licked my lips hoping it would taste like those Starburst Smackers, alas they don’t…) Oh and don’t forget the all important SPF factor, winner!




These balms masquerading as glosses are actually quite creamy but glossy at the same time. How do they do that?? They are quite sheer though. I wish the Amber (orange) one were a little more pigmented.


#03 'Amber' (has a few shimmery/glittery particles)



#06 'Rose Quartz' (a little frosted, very pretty though)


These Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm’s are part of the Max Factor Xperience Makeup Collection for Fall/Winter 2010. Which also include the Xperience Weightless Foundation SPF 10 and Xperience Volumising Mascara.

Price: $19.95 each (Gloss Balm)

From: Myer, Target, Kmart, Big W, Priceline and selected pharmacies.

Ps, stay tuned for an upcoming competition in a few days time. Will post more details on here and twitter.

Clue: winner will receive a kit to make them look like a star!

About time!

8 Oct

So I’ve finally taken the plunge and started my blog. I should warn you guys beforehand that I am absolutely terrible at technology and unless it practically does everything itself, I wont know how to do it and will need to Google.

Phew, glad I got that out of the way before I stuff up something that should be simple to do!

Anywayyyy, I thought I’d dedicate my first post to the new love of my life, my brand spankin’ new shoes from Peeptoe Shoes. They are seriously amazing and soooo comfortable!!
