So recently I was presented with the opportunity to review one of the new Ozotic polishes that Gracie Lou is stocking. Of course I jumped at the chance! With my current buy-ban, I’m taking every opportunity I can The Husband is a strict taskmaster.
Parcels! Parcels! I love parcels! *dances*
Hello everyone! Hope your week has been good, mine has been filled with nail polish O_O like crazy amounts…but more on that later.
As you may have noticed I got a parcel in the mail yesterday! Oh yeah! This parcel is from Hobby Bazaar and is filled with Du-Kit Polymer Clay. I use Polymer Clay when I make things like my Cupcake Decorations. I have been running low lately on the main colours I used so I splurged and brought myself some more through Hobby Bazaar.
So I’ve been using various Za face moisturisers for around 2 years now, and the new one I’ve started using is so great I decided to share it on here with you Because it’s not nail polish
Anyway, I use this cream every morning and it leaves me feel fresh-faced, young, soft, and fantastic. The best part is that you only need a tiny bit to do the whole face ^_^ I purchased this at Farmers, which seems to be the go-to place for any Za products.
Every time my Mama and I visit St Lukes mall we visit the lovely L’Occitane store that they have their. We tend to just dribble over the beautiful products and maybe try a few things out. I get my love of Rose and Lavender scented things from my Mama, so it’s usually these scents we try.
L’Occitane has one of the best and natural smelling rose ranges I have found so far. According to the beautiful boxes the L’Occitane Rose 4 Reines range is a combination of four different roses; the Grasse rose, the Bulgarian rose, the Moroccan rose and the Turkish rose.
I was lucky enough for Christmas this year to receive the “Rose 4 Reines Rose Pearlescent Cream 200ml” from my Mum and Dad. This weekend me and Mama went on another trip to St Lukes. L’Occitane has a 20% off sale and there I picked up their “Rose 4 Reines Eau de Toilette 20ml“, which is a smaller bottle of their usual 75ml.
Goodness I have tried so many new things recently so it is time again for a “Recent Purchase Review” as well as a “Follow Up Review” for some of the products I reviewed earlier that I might have changed my mind on or just flopped.
If you have any suggestions for me please let me know I love trying new things
Many things to share today! It’s hard to keep it all straight… I’ll try my best. First and foremost I have some small shopping endeavours to share, as well as a few oh-look-people-gave-me-stuff things to show off. I’ve bunched them all into one photo because I’m lazy and the camera battery was running low and I couldn’t find the charger.
Delindel has been quite busy the last week or so trying out teas and reviewing them I thought it was time I dusted out my tea pot as well.
Now I am not a big tea drinker, I am more of an insane coffee drinker. Every morning the first thing I do is down a cup of coffee before anything else. Don’t get me wrong I actually love the taste of coffee and I take it with no sugar. I am also very picky about my coffee, so my instant brew is Moccona classic and if I am out I will buy a trim flat white preferably double shot.
The tea I usually drink is Lipton Lemon and Honey, yes I know in a bag! I also have a vast selection of other teas but Gabby is a bit more into it than I am. There is one brand of tea that brings out the esscentric in me though, Aaah Tea.
MaSucree has done quite a few of these things already and I thought it would be a bit silly of me to do a tea review 3 posts in a row! I have more tea reviews coming of course (I took some notes this morning, and am taking some more right now!) but today I thought I’d go over a few of my recent (and some not-so-recent) purchases.
Almost 3 weeks ago MaSucree and I received a new Beauty Joint order that MaSucree posted briefly about here. I thought I’d finally get around to showing off the things I got! In that order I picked up two Nyx round lipsticks (Hades and Champagne), a Nyx jumbo eye pencil (Milk) , a Nyx slide-on eye pencil (Jewel), and a Milani nail polish (Jewel FX Gems)! Yay!
For the last couple of years I have been trying to perfect the 1940′s/1950′s waves, but I was never able to get it right. Having such thin hair you would think it would hold onto curls well but for some reason they used to drop out by the time I had finished curling one side. I had tried curling products, hot rollers, foam rollers and bucket of hair spray.
The other week when I was attempting to curl my hair with my older model Remington Curling iron I ended up throwing a “small” tantrum over how useless it was. Which meant I was given permission to investigate getting a new curling iron. The curling tong that kept catching my eye was the Remington Tribal Tong. Luckily after my “tantrum” Farmer’s was having a sale on the Remington Tribal Tong, it was down from the usual $100 NZD to $40.00 NZD.
